The Mackinac Center for Public Policy has a devil of a story. It appears that the Michigan Education Association was hosting a photo of Michigan Governor Rick Snyder replete with bloodspatters and occult symbols making the governor out to be the devil. (See image below)
The Mackinac Center alerted the MEA about the offensive image that had been on the page since March 11 and the teachers group claimed they had no idea it was there and did not put it there themselves.
How it is that such an image can for days be on the MEA's official Facebook page and the organization not knowing it is rather absurd.
"We do monitor our page -- unfortunately, we missed this one (items move down the Facebook feed pretty quickly, so if we miss it, it can get buried fast)," Pratt said in an email. "We've deleted the item. Thank you for bringing it to our attention."
Remember, folks, THESE are the sort of people "teaching" our children!
