School Board Member Calls Lockdown Protesters ‘Bioterrorists,’ Threatens to Shoot Them
A school board member and failed state house candidate in Pennsylvania found herself in hot water earlier this week after she vowed in a Facebook post to shoot anyone who approached her without wearing a mask.
She also called non-mask-wearers “bioterrorists” and compared them to someone pointing a gun at her.
Dr. Jennifer Rager-Kay is a Selinsgrove Area School Board member and a former Democratic candidate for a state house seat in Pennsylvania. In a now-deleted Facebook post, she commented under an image of an anti-lockdown protest in Pennsylvania’s capital:
Rager-Kay told PennLive she has no plans to resign from the school board over her comments.
Her fellow school board members have not called for her resignation, but board member Amy Stauffer told PennLive, “as public servants our words are significant and have an impact on others. Threatening words should have consequences.”
School board president Dennis Wolfe said Rager-Kay “should have been more careful with how she expressed her opinion” but believes “her follow up explanation reflects that understanding.”
