SELINSGROVE, PA – Dr. Jennifer Rager-Kay, a school director for the Selinsgrove School District in central Pennsylvania made a post on her Facebook page saying she will exercise her constitutional right to kill anti-lockdown protestors and now she and her husband are both gone from their jobs.
“I find it interesting that the largest group of those participating in the anti-lockdown protests are refusing to wear masks in public as they see it as a violation of their constitutional rights, are those against any form of gun regulation,” she said. “As a conceal carry permit gun owner, if you refuse to wear a mask and come within six feet of me or my family, I will exercise the same constitutional right to shoot you.”
On Wednesday, with rebel defiance, both Rager and her husband Peter Kay resigned their posts. Kay served as public defender. She and her husband now blame Synder County Chairman Joe Kantz, who captured her Facebook post and shared it.
“As a result of a post placed on social media, I have received threats against my personal and professional well being that with great sorrow have compelled me to submit this letter of formal resignation from the Selinsgrove Area School District Board of Directors. For a position I am honored and passionate to serve, this is no easy decision and l feel it necessary to explain,” she wrote in her resignation letter. “This private social media post, that Snyder County Commissioner Joe Kantz elected to capture and share, has confirmed the state of affairs that prompted me to post it in the first place. Our society is so divided and entrenched with the ‘you vs. me’ selfish mentality, that we fail to recognize the level of hypocrisy this represents. Someone approaching me or my family not wearing a mask while in the midst of a pandemic, and refusing to back off if asked, represents a potentially deadly threat. Those who carry their rifles to rallies and protests speak so passionately about the right to personal defense, are the same ones now attacking me for boldly asserting that I would meet a deadly threat with deadly force.”
Rager is a failed Democrat political candidate who unsuccessfully ran for a seat in the Pennsylvania statehouse.
Kay was paid $55,000 per year to serve as public defender in the county court system, complained that both he and his wife are being threatened and harassed.
“[We are] inundated with harassing messages and e-mails from people threatening to come to our home to challenge our commitment to the safety and health of our family — people who were stoked into action by the chairman’s crass political opportunism. I am saddened that it has come to this, but I no longer feel safe in the Courthouse, and most unfortunately, my home is now threatened,” Kay wrote.
