Roger Hedgecock is a very disappointing man for he judges people by their weight! I have to tell you, I am furious. I am disgusted by what I heard on the radio today.
I was driving home from work. Traffic has been awful lately, but tonight a twenty-minute drive took me almost fifty minutes. It was a slow, snarling mess of a drive.
I turned on talk radio to catch the traffic report. It was still too early to hear it, but what I heard instead was Roger Hedgecock giving his commentary on the Governor Chris Christy scandal in New Jersey. He began his commentary by saying that he is not a Chris Christy fan because he is too fat. “Chris Christy is as wide as he is tall. He even had stomach stapling, and maybe he lost a little weight, but not much. I admit it. I am a California snob. I can’t take a fat person seriously.”
I may not have the exact order of the words he said, but I am spot on about his meaning. I could not believe my ears! He is supposed to be an educated man, an intelligent man, a man of the people, and this is what he says publicly. It is shocking.
He went on to say that he didn’t care for his politics because he was too liberal, but then gave several examples of the good Chris Christy did, contradicting himself over and over again.
I don’t care whether or not Roger Hedgecock likes Christy’s politics. He is entitled to his opinion, and his opinion of how he feels about fat people is just that, his opinion. What I am disgusted about is the first thing he judged the governor by was his weight and his size.
Roger Hedgecock felt NBC was biased toward President Obama, having given the problems with the Obama plan minimal coverage because NBC supports liberal policies. Conversely, in the case of Governor Chris Christy NBC devoted eleven minutes to the scandal that shows no real evidence of Governor Christy having any involvement while only devoting less than a minute toward the Obamacare fiasco.
This is where his commentary should have begun. Governor Christy’s weight and size should not have been mentioned. And then to have the audacity to claim that he is an admitted California snob implying that the state of California hates fat people is completely shameful. How insulting to the people of California to lump them in with him, an obvious prejudicial man who judges people not by who they are and their contribution to their community and their actions. No instead Roger Hedgecock affiliates with the notion that if you are fat then you do not deserve to be respected.
I welcome him to have a conversation with me any time, any day. I would look upon this man as a pathetic excuse of humanity because I believe most people are not as superficial as Roger Hedgecock.
Hey Roger Hedgecock, Governor Christy obviously worked his ass off to accomplish everything he has in order to make it to Governor. Fat or thin didn’t enter the picture when it came to making things happen and working to better the lives of the people of the state of New Jersey.
Frankly Roger Hedgecock, you should be ashamed of yourself. Are you so perfect that you should judge a man by his size and not by his character and his contribution? I think not.
I don’t care whether or not you like his policies. I do care that you feel it is appropriate to judge people by how fat they are, and you cannot say you didn’t. The first words of your commentary about the bias of NBC news time spent regarding Obamacare versus the scandal of Governor Christy’s staff over traffic manipulation did not start with this news. It started with you discussing your abject disgust with fat people, namely Governor Christy.
May you not be judged by what you look like, but by who you are and what you represent to humanity. Unfortunately, in my book, I judge you as shallow and a snob. Not a California snob. Most Californians are good people and come in all sizes.
