Chris Christie under fire from PETA for killing a SPIDER in front of fourth graders
(UK) Daily Mail ^ | May 4, 2013 | Nina Golgowski

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie is taking heat from the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals after he killing a spider on his desk in front of a class of fourth graders.

In a video titled, 'Governor Christie Saves School Children From Spider,' his fearless spider-swatting skills are witnessed to cheers from his daughter, Bridget’s classmates after it caused a commotion on his desk.

He tells the children after delivering it a quick slap by his palm that it's just one of the many perks of being governor.

'Any bugs on your desk you're allowed to kill them and not get in trouble,' he says in the short 26 second video published by the governor's office on Friday.

Though he resisted the urging from one boy to 'staple it,' and perhaps humanely euthanized the arachnid with a quick stomp, PETA reacted less than thrilled.

This zoo would actually be hilarious if we could just ship them to say, Cuba, then laff our butts off from afar.

to the media and the establishment they will say he’s a conservative and then push him on us in 2016 and probably another north east RINO again.

Just think of the billions of microorganisms the PETA people must slaughter insdvertantly on a daily basis.

There’s only one thing left for them to do now that they have created this holocaust. They must either eliminate themselves or admit to being the the hapless hypocrites they’ve always been.

LEAD BY EXAMPLE!

Just goes to show that no matter how much Fatso grovels for the lefties, when it comes to crunch time, the lefties will treat him just like any other Republican. And he’s burned his bridges with conservatives, so he’s going to be SOL.

Actually, I don’t kill spiders, because they are helpful at keeping down the fly and bug population.

But I think my reasoning differs from PETA in that regard.

Maybe they did and that's why he started letting the flies just crawl around on his face

“Aren’t those things supposed to have antlers?”

They've already been removed. If you don't harvest and grind them immediately they loose much of their aphrodisiac potency.

And once again, the brilliant minds at PETA figure out a way to get everyone outraged and mention them. They're playing us, folks.

Don't you get it yet?

Keep in mind Christie is a liberal.

This whole thing is staged to make you think Christie and PETA are on opposite sides.
