They are at it again; the ideological activists who hate and despise those who disagree with them, and have the gumption to believe that God supports their cause, and that He would be willing to strike their enemies dead.

No, I am not writing about Tea Party members:

A New Jersey teachers union is coming under fire after an internal memo included a veiled threat to Gov. Chris Christie.

The leaked memo, which was sent to union leaders in the New Jersey Education Association’s Bergen County division, contains a closing paragraph written in the form of a prayer.

“Dear Lord,” the letter reads. “This year you have taken away my favorite actor, Patrick Swayze, my favorite actress, Farrah Fawcett, my favorite singer, Michael Jackson, and my favorite salesman, Billy Mays. I just wanted to let you know that Chris Christie is my favorite governor.”

Bergen County Education Association President Joe Coppola said the memo was confidential and the line was intended as a joke.

“It was inappropriate, it was in bad taste, and it was definitely in poor judgment,” Copolla said.

But of course, this round of trash talk won’t be the target of any opprobrium from the likes of Frank Rich or Paul Krugman.
