New Jersey education trustee to Muslims: ‘Stay in your desserts’

A northern New Jersey board of education member accused of Facebook posts urging Muslims to “stay in your desserts” is refusing to step down despite a growing list of educators and lawmakers calling for her resignation.

Gladys Gryskiewicz remained listed as a trustee of the Elmwood Park Board of Education on its website on Wednesday despite an uproar over reports of a series of messages on her personal Facebook account.

Posts earlier this year urged Muslims to “stay in your desserts [sic] and follow your religion in your own countries,” as well as “Go back to your own country; America needs to get rid of people like you,” according to a statement from the New Jersey chapter of Council on American-Islamic Relations, or CAIR.

Gryskiewicz’s lawyer, Evan Goldman, was quoted in The Record of Bergen County newspaper as confirming that his client wrote the online comments but saying she would not resign.

    Could the tide finally be turning against the epidemic of spinelessness? In related news, John Tory is standing up to Black Lives Matter, and they don’t like it one little bit.

    • I saw that interview he gave on City TV, he did the right thing.

        Will have to look for that, unless someone has a link handy.

    When I first read the Facebook post I was out for her blood, but after due consideration I decided that bad spelling does warrant her dismissal.

      How many times have you overlooked it when people youse the word losing and spell it as loosing?
      I stopped being a grammar nazi years ago when I found I had more in common with the people who misspelled words.
      A gentle nudge here and there like hey did you loose the horses or lose the horses?

    Kudos to her for speaking the truth. Too bad she’s with the board of education but can’t spell.

    I agree; there’s nothing that annoys me more than Muslims in my desserts.

    Speaking of CAIR , they coach muslims to not help the FBI ( RCMP in Canada) when they come around to investigate a Jihad terrorism cell or post Jihad terrorism act.
    The silent peaceful muslims seem to be the most dangerous because it can be seen as a tacit approval to the terrorist that they can continue Jihad for allah’s Global Caliphate.
