[Video] 8 Year Old Schoolboy Reprimanded For Thinking a Cloud Looked Like a Gun During Assignment

[Video] 8 Year Old Schoolboy Reprimanded For Thinking a Cloud Looked Like a Gun During Assignment May 22 2014 by Dan Cannon Share This Post

So I think we’re officially to the point where our public schools are punishing children for their imagination.

According to KKTV,

Second grader Kody Smith was assigned to go outside, look at the clouds, and then use his imagination to draw what he saw.

“Draw a picture of what you see in the clouds from your imagination and that picture is a gun,” explained 8-year-old Kody.

Because it was a gun, the teacher at Talbott Elementary in Widefield called him into the office, and then filed a behavior report. His parents say that’s too much.

So this kid is punished because he didn’t see an elephant or a unicorn or whatever else the school *thought* he should see when he looked at some clouds? Really?

This is just the latest example of the zero tolerance hysteria which has swept our nation’s schools.

Check out our article, The Plan to Disarm America Within Two Generations is Happening RIGHT NOW for more details on how these school policies will be the downfall of the Second Amendment.

Time to take the kid out of public school. He’s been punished enough by these idiots by merely attending.

“you didnt see that” You DIDNT SEE a GUN”

“DO YOU UNDERSTAND THAT...”?

What a wonderful way to warp a child’s mind.

I saw a cloud the other day that looked like Barack Obama holding a gun...

Have Conservatives Lost Colorado for Good, and Will America Follow?
Mar. 21, 2013 10:58pm Mytheos Holt

Colorado has been at the epicenter of major political controversy pretty much since the national election, and has recently witnessed a string of progressive victories. But does that mean the centennial state is permanently in the bag for Democrats? That’s the argument that Salon columnist David Sirota makes today, claiming that Colorado is a case study in “How to Turn a State Liberal,” with nine reasons why. We decided to take a look at each of his arguments individually and see how much reason conservatives have to be worried.

If people keep sending their kids to public school, after knowing what their kids are being taught, they deserve what they’re getting. All these “Millennials” who don’t know Bengahzi from Ben Affleck, parents fault for letting the government raise them.

Really?

The fact that he has reacted to this creeping fascist bullshit from the propagandist (re)educators is enough of a good example for me.

I'm not looking to pick a fight with you, but I learned not to judge by appearances about 50 years ago.

I personally feel the same way about the Dad’s hair and general appearance, but he should have the right to grow his hair the way he wants to. While the story details how the school attempted to squash his little son’s imagination, I hate to attempt to squash Dad’s individuality.

No offense!

An absolute outrage.

I’ve seen here on FR people say that sending your kids to public schools is tantamount to child abuse. Clearly, this is a case in point.

Most “educators” are such fools. They appear to hate Freedom and love thought control. My only thought is why did they get hired to be “educators” when they are such moronic degenerates. The “educators” are guilty of child abuse and should be arrested.

Thanks. I agree that the father may not meet someone’s personal appearance haircut code but he is sitting there with his son and appears to be a very concerned parent, unlike many so-called parents today.

Mind control of our kids for sure.

If he drew a picture of two gay males forn..ing, err, sharing their love, I am sure he would have got an A.

Thought I might get some pushback on that... it’s about a 2/10 in importance, but a clean “traditional” look would help bolster protecting his son from the zeitgeist culture.

Colleges too, especially the Ivy league ones on the upper east coast like “Hah-vaad” and Yale. It’s absolutely astounding how many brain dead liberals those abominations posing as a schools spew out. I mean just think: We have a POTUS who claims he was a Professor of Constitutional law at Harvard, yet he doesn’t know the first thing about the constitution. How the hell does that work? Or how about Sheila Jackson Lee? Graduate of Yale, thinks men walked on Mars and that the constitution is 400 years old.

Instead of a gun, the boy should have drawn a penis and testes...the government teacher would have given him praise and a gold star.

I have a confession to make in anonymity.
When I was in third grade I routinely decorated the margins of my spelling tests with crude drawings of all manner of weaponry: swords, knifes, spears, guns, etc.
I'm rather embarrassed to admit that today I own no weapons (but I'm thinking of purchasing a firearm), although I'm an NRA member, and if you don't count a Swiss Army Knife.
I was 11B10 in the military, and am now a physician.
I have never harmed a citizen with a weapon.
I shudder to think what I would be subjected to were I a third grader today.

Many of us who ride motorcycles wear our hair long for a practical reason. Helmets are supposed to fit tight. Tight helmets fold my ears as the helmet slides into place. Long hair lets the helmet slide on without folding my ears.

A side benefit is reduced wind noise at speed. Friends whose job requires a more conformal look put on a snazzy skull cap to prevent the discomfort.

I was in a supermarket a few days ago. I saw a young boy with a toy gun running around and pretending to shoot a friend. All I could think of was that he’d be in serious trouble if he did that in a public school. He was just a kid being a kid, but in the public schools that’s not allowed. You have to conform. How sick and how sad!

Couldn’t the time spent worrying about idiocy like this be better spent teaching important things? Like the meaning of the Constitution,the Bill of Rights,& more specifically,the meaning of the Second Amendment.....where it is age-appropriate of course.
