Tuesday morning, it was discovered that a bunch of meanies drew colorful sidewalk chalk drawings outside the office of TN State Senator Todd Gardenhire, expressing disapproval.

The chalk drawings criticized Gardenhire’s opposition toward Gov. Bill Haslam’s “Insure TN” proposal to insure 280,000 low-income Tennesseans and hurt his feelings in the process.

“Why do people have to be so mean?” said Gardenhire, holding back tears, at a press conference this afternoon. “If I find out who did this, I am going to tell on them.”

According to the Times Free Press, Gardenhire said about the meanies, “They might as well be in Nazi Germany, using tactics like this.”

The Nazi regime in Germany, under Adolf Hitler, was responsible for methodically murdering approximately six million Jews between 1941 and 1945.

“They may start with chalk drawings, but what will come next from these monsters?” said Gardenhire. “Now, I live in fear that they might soap my windows, or wrap my car’s antenna with yarn, or send me a letter full of glitter, or put a loaf of bread in my mailbox.”
