Knox & Pincus – one and the same!

Hate & bullying from public officials with no consequence?

Hoboken and Union Township have a lot in common. Everyone claims “to be against” hate, bigotry, and bullying, but here once again, you have yet another situation where public officials protect a person’s right to any freedom of speech with no consequences, but don’t protect the victims of that speech.

So we allow bullying and bigotry after all!

Mayor Dawn Zimmer supports Zoning Board member Nancy Pincus to spew hate, racism, and threaten violence all she wants and now Union Township has a public school teacher, Viki Knox, preaching bigotry on the internet.

Knox recently posted on her Facebook page saying that “homosexuality is a perverted spirit that has existed from the beginning of creation,” and despising a school display created in recognition of LGBT History month.

Let’s see what Union does about this. They already have a former councilperson John Paragano saying, “Hateful public comments from a teacher cannot be tolerated. She has a right to say it. But she does not have a right to keep her job after saying it.”

And there’s more outcry:
“Ms. Knox has the freedom to say whatever she wants. But her employer has every right to hold her accountable,” said Steven Goldstein, chairman of gay-rights group Garden State Equality. “Teachers are supposed to be role models for our children, not hatemongers.”

Now Union public officials are actually investigating this situation further which is a hell of a lot more than Hoboken’s Council Majority of Do-Nothing and Spineless Mayor Zimmer has done.

Does “Free Speech” protect your job as a public servant?

One thing to note, the Legal Director of the American Civil Liberties Union in New Jersey, Edward Barocas, recently said “Although we do not agree with the sentiments expressed on Ms. Knox’s personal Facebook page, her beliefs and comments are protected by the First Amendment.”

Yes, the ACLU protects freedom of speech, however, it doesn’t say anything about protecting someone’s employment or as in Pincus’ case, an appointment to a government board.

Sure, give Nancy Pincus freedom of speech and let Pincus spew her hate in her own sad little world, but REMOVE her and her hate from our government NOW.

Agreed Whisky on terroristic threats. The appeals will find that Brice and Pincus acted in reckless disregard for the truth. It is simply a matter of the first level process wanting to close as many cases as possibe quickly.

Your comment on KY jelly is apropos – the pharmacies need to stock up on KY jelly if the citizens of this town continue to passively roll over.[quote comment=”211519″]JC NO DEFENSE of this porkchop aka knox but she typed it on facebook..still not to wise for a teacher..The other one NP is a different story.. terroristic threats said in fun pun other wise are out of order…The beat goes on…This knox girl may have forgot where she came from such as whoppi Gold berg aka who the f knows her sir name.Was written she was on welfare 40 + plus years ago..So far to the left she is listing 40%…It’s the sign of the times..Politically correct is a violation of the 1st ammendment.? ohh ok..Our kids in school get fed chit and the show the view is the closest thing to left wing turds.We are going down the tubes..wake up americia..100 more troops sent to africia to assist the oppressed and starving..another blackhawk down? hope not ..where is the rest of the free nations to asisist..?????[/quote]

This is precisely the problem when government officials appoint friends and campaign supporters to board positions and jobs. God damn pathetic.
