Gov. Snyder - Devil
A picture of Gov. Rick Snyder on the official Michigan Education Association Facebook page.

The Michigan Education Association pulled down a photo on their Facebook page of Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder that had demonic symbols superimposed on Snyder’s forehead, referred to him as “Satan” and had Nazi swastikas and blood spills on the GOP elephant symbol.

The Mackinac Center for Public Policy alerted the MEA Tuesday morning of the photo on their page and it was shortly thereafter taken down. The photo was posted on March 11.

MEA spokesman Doug Pratt said they investigated the post and found it was an MEA Facebook “fan” who had no affiliation with the teachers’ union.

“We do monitor our page — unfortunately, we missed this one (items move down the Facebook feed pretty quickly, so if we miss it, it can get buried fast),” Pratt said in an email. “We've deleted the item. Thank you for bringing it to our attention.”
