Karen Huff Klein gets abused on a New York school bus by young fat busters

EGGED on by the State-sanctioned war on the fat, the kids on board the Greece School District bus in Greece, N.Y, set about abusing (surely, encouraging her to lose weight – ed) Karen Huff Klein, a 68-year-old bus monitor.

The most popular terms of abuse if “fat ass”. A playground wit tells her “you don’t have a family because they all killed themselves because they don’t want to be near you.” Her son killed himself ten years earlier. The nippers knew this. They advise her that she will “die of diabetes.

It’s all pretty much the usual expert-inspired stuff, in which the fat are told to objectify themselves and their roly-poly kids, who are responsible for draining the health system of funds and killing the planet. Kids, he, they really do just pick up adult prejudices.

Reddit user razorsheldon asked the web to support the abused woman:

Now, as awful as this was, there was a silver lining in not only the universal condemnation of the actions of these kids, but also in a call for support for this poor woman. Her name is Karen Klein, and if you are so compelled, please feel free to reach out to offer support. She has been a widow for 17 years, has lived in the same town she grew up in and is about to have her 50th high school reunion in the same school district, and deserves so much better than the actions shown by those in this video. Let’s show her that there are still good people out there…

The kids involved are being hit with “disciplinary action.”

Here’s Karen Klein:

She handled herself well. Perhaps she’s used to being abused on account of her weight?
