Fox News ^ | 6/17/2010 | Fox News

Posted on 06/17/2010 11:47:51 AM PDT by Domandred

A Rhode Island mother says her 8-year-old son's school would not let him wear a patriotic hat she says he designed for a project to honor Army troops because the school thought it was inappropriate.

--- SNIP ---

Morales said the principal at David's school called her to say the hat wasn't appropriate because it had guns, which violated a school ban on weapons and toy weapons.

Someone might confuse those “toy weapons” for the real thing. /sarcasm. Why doesn’t our educational system do what they REALLY feel like doing and order sex change operations for all boys. Heck, they’d stand a far better chance of finding a job. /NOT sarcasm.

Wasn’t there a case of this happening in the same area of the country last year?

Guess these morbidly stupid “educators” won’t allow Toy Story to be shown in “school” either, eh?

What’s the difference between an education degree and a bucket of s***, er, a bucket of Obama?

Answer: Not a darned thing.

Why are the parents surprised? If they want their children to be educated they will pull them out of the government schools. It is neglect at best and probably child abuse to send children to these godless schools.

So, wear the hat. When the school forcefully removes it, sue the district and file assault charges against whoever touched the child.

One more example that the government schools are doing what they were designed to do: turn out sissified sheep that do what they’re told.

If you have children, remove them from the government schools.

The government schools are the primary tool the “progressives” have used to turn a nation of free men into sheep that want to enslaved for empty promises of safety and security.

If I had ever had kids, they would not have attended a government school, even though I did.

I guess all school personnel and students should check their pocket change and make sure thae aren’t carrying The Massachusetts State Quarter since it depicts a Minuteman carrying a weapon. If caught, the adults should lose their jobs.

Remove all exposure to guns of all sorts,
make them a scary and taboo topic,

and you set up a society in which gun ownership can be banned.

Too many f'ing liberal, leftist, progressive, socialist, communist LAWYERS AND squeamish union-loving FEMALE school teachers and administrators.

Let's ship them to some God-forsaken island penal colony, even a nice place like Hawaii, I don't care, just let 'em have the whole damn thing - and then imprison them or ship 'em back if they try to come back to the mainland.

I'M FED UP WITH THE UN-AMERICAN BASTARDS.

I certainly hope the school provides adequate psychological counseling for any teachers or students who were traumatized by viewing this troublemaker’s hat.

It is not all the teachers fault, most of this crap comes down from the nanny state school boards. Aren't they elected if so maybe voters with kids should pay closer attention about who they elect into these positions.

This lunacy can be laid to rest at the feet of those who are registered to vote in this School District. It is their Representatives expressing their ideals.

Want to fix things? Elect a more appropriate School Board.

The real fools in this case are the voters.

This article confirms that hoplophobia is an actual mental illness. The pathological fear of class of inanimate objects so strong that the sufferer cannot distinguish between a 1/20th (or thereabouts) scale plastic cast toy and actual weapons should be more than sufficient reason to ban a person from contact with children. Or society in general.

Rush was right 20 years ago or more when he was first saying how the Femi-nazis were going to churn out a generation of feminized men.

Take a look at our approach to anything and you’ll see the “feminine” touch on it. Look at our foreign policy. Talk, talk talk talk talk talk talk. No action or reprecussion to back up the talk. That’s the feminine approach of “time out” played on the world stage.

Look at our approach on “forbidden words”. Kowtowing to someone’s feelings, walking on verbal egg shells around someone for fear of offending them is the feminine way.

Generally speaking, conservative men and women would not have a problem with this hat. It is because we have not fallen victim to feminization of the country.

“If I had ever had kids, they would not have attended a government school, even though I did.”

That’s why. You know what they’re like first hand, and they’ve gotten a lot worse since you were there.

Back in third grade I wore a “leather” (cheap plastic) holster belt to school complete with two “pearl” handled 8-shooter cap guns.

I would have been in prison today.

How does this school or others like it, deal with a Student named Colt, Winchester, Gunn or the like? Are books by Browning eliminated from the Library?

Useful idiots, no doubt, but carrying the water for the anti American/ anti 2A crowd doesn’t change the fact that many of these people are really mentally ill. Pretending that weapons do not exist won’t help anyone, but they do get to transmit their fear to young people. A generation of hoplophobes fits very well with the anti gun crowd. Those that desire a strong government forcing their wishes on the people are also well pleased.

"Want to fix things? Elect a more appropriate School Board."

They can't because a majority of voters are stupid and insane. People get the government they deserve.

One of my favorite cartoons was of two ladies sitting at a table and one telling the other that she did not let her son play with violent toys and under the table was a little boy with a pot on his head for a helmet and using a doll with it are stretched out as a gun it was hilarious it shows boys will be boys no matter what.

Here's the solution. More of these type of plastic soldiers. I hated the minesweepers and walkie talkie guys. They were the first to die in my battles. What does a 10 year old do with an army guy with no gun?

Yea the minesweepers blow. They never stood up right either. Thought the walkie talkie guys at least had a side arm in their other hand though.
