Gov. Chris Christie

Fightin' Words

On the Jersey Shore

EXCLUSIVE



0_2yjedc81_0_7ipzit1lThings got downright HOSTILE on the Jersey Shore last night -- with NJ Governor Chris Christie getting into a heated verbal altercation right on the boardwalk ... and it was all caught on tape.

Gov. Christie (R-NJ) was hangin' with his family in Seaside Heights ... and had just ordered an ice cream cone when a passerby fired off some snide comments about Christie's policy on education.

Christie got PISSED -- and while clutching his cone, shouted back at the guy, "You're a real big shot ... you're a real big shot shootin' your mouth off."

The man shouted back, "Nah, just take care of the teachers!"

The comment only inflamed Christie ... who aggressively marched towards the guy and warned, "Keep walkin' away ... really good ... keep walkin'."

Soon after, someone in Christie's party put his arm around the 49-year-old and escorted him in the other direction.

FYI -- Christie, one of the prime contenders for the Republican Vice Presidential nomination, has recently signed legislation expanding public funding for charter schools ... a decision that has infuriated some who would prefer the money go towards struggling public schools.

Christie's temper has been making headlines after he called a reporter "stupid" and an "idiot" on Saturday for asking off-topic questions at a news conference.

Christie's camp had no comment on the story.

Here is a 60 Minutes expose on the charter schools movement in the USA, which is dominated by the Gulen schools. The leader of the schools is in exile in the USA for trying to use his students to overthrow the Turkish government.


This is all a part of an Islamo-corporatist take-over of the USA. It is a stealth movement using the disgruntled sentiment over poor academic performance to lure people into mini madrassas.


If all these kids learn is math and science, maybe they will get good grades in that. How are they learning English if the teachers are Turkish and barely can pronounce English themselves? The whole thing is a huge scam.


Why are the Catholic schools all being shut down, but Muslim led schools are being built? Why didn't they just publicly fund the Catholic schools if they were going to go semi-private anyway?


This is all part of stealth jihad leading to a fascist Islamic caliphate being implemented over the USA.

For everyone who moans and complains about what this politician says or that politician says. . .remember they were ELECTED. Give it a rest.

Taking care of the teachers? Nothing like the rich folks with their massive pensions and gold plated health insurance fighting for their rights-- and you've got to love how they expect the proles to pay for it all.

If the kids could actually read and write when they left school, I might be more inclined to pay for it, but they can barely express themselves in a text message.

I think Christie has totally forgotten that he was ELECTED by the people, not born the king of NJ and the same people who voted him in can vote him out next election. He needs to stop abusing the people of NJ and start kissing their asses. He works for US. We don't owe him a damn thing!!!

Why do teachers, firemen and police think they should be immune from budget cuts. Why do they think they're so special? They're not. If you don't want to be a fireman, don't be a fireman.

Go ahead, Governor- prove to everyone that Jersey is full of low-class, uneducated slime, just like Jersey Shore portrays our citizens. Can't get out of this state quick enough!!! What a bunch of low lifes in Trenton...

I normally like Christie, but he's going too far on education cuts. The outrageous rise in tuition at Rutgers in order to compensate for New Jersey's continued under-funding of higher education is simply shocking. I don't blame Rutgers parents for being ticked off one bit. Rutgers used to be a top rated public school but now it's a joke, it's been surpassed by UConn, Penn State, Maryland, Pitt, etc.
