Cupcakes With Army Soldiers Get Kid In Hot Water At School
CBS Detroit ^

Posted on 03/09/2013 5:46:46 AM PST by bryan999

A 9-year-old boy’s birthday cupcakes sparked a school controversy that just keeps growing, with scores of people lining up against a school principal who found the cupcake’s topping “inappropriate.”

The boy was chided, and so were his parents, for cupcakes featuring little green Army men on the top.

Shameless, utter madness.

Can't seem to find any articles where the parents are interviewed. New story, perhaps it needs a little time. If anyone finds one, please post.

The article stated, “The guys (soldiers) are heroes and too many associate them with psychopaths”.

No... the psychopaths are the lib morons who make these beyond stupid rules and enforce them. Little green soldiers on top of cupcakes can do what? Can they kill someone? I am glad the parents contacted the media.. stories like this should get out and the school administration laughed at. IMHO.

I suppose a picture of the US Marines raising the flag on Iwo Jima would be considered pornographic in this school. What concerns me is that these same lunatic administrators who cringe at even a kid making a gun shape with their fingers are designing the “lock down” policies to keep kids safe should a real gunman arrive at their school.

The boy was chided, and so were his parents, for cupcakes featuring little green Army men on the top.

Schall Elementary School principal Susan Wright called the parents at home and said the cupcakes were insensitive in the wake of the Sandy Hook school shooting. School staff pulled off the Army men before they were served.

I went to my daughter’s elementary school (on Veterans Day), in uniform, so they could talk to a veteran.

It was a great time. I showed them some of my gear (sleeping bag, e-tool, NO weapons of any kind) and for a snack we all had MREs (a huge hit - kids love them!).

At dismal, some parents came in to pick up their children.

I overheard a few saying things like “What the hell is he doing here?” and “Is he trying to brainwash our children” etc.

My favorite was said out loud directly to the teacher: “We need to bring in an environmentalist into class to counter balance the army guy.”

I still laugh about that.

I can actually empathize with the Principal.

Imagine the phone call from a lib opposed to guns who doesn’t want the kid exposed to guns or toys with guns

Might even threaten a lawsuit.

I am surprised the school allowed the cupcakes in the first place. Many school won’t even allow that.

Fountain’s wife made a batch of 30 chocolate cupcakes for their son Hunter’s classmates at Schall Elementary School in the town of Caro. The 9-year-old helped decorate the treats with plastic figurines representing World War Two soldiers.

“The following morning Fountain said his wife delivered the cupcakes to the front office. The secretary complimented her on the decorations and then took the cakes to Hunter’s class.

“About 15 minutes later the school called my wife and told her the couldn’t serve the cupcakes because the soldiers had guns,” Fountain told Fox News. “My wife told them to remove the soldiers and serve the cupcakes anyway — and I believe she may have used more colorful language.”

In defense of the Military, I would have loudly rebuked the asswipe by saying: “He means jihadist.”

I hope the jackwagons didn’t discourage you.

Just a few days ago a school near Selfridge air National Guard base was evacuated because an airman went to the school wearing his uniform. The idiot sheriff says the airman showed poor judgement.

If a soldier speaks you need to balance him with a jihadi who needs to be balanced with a Rabbi who needs to be balanced by.....

Unless there were troops involved at Sandy Hook, I fail to seen any connection. Should we start a new conspiracy theory? (Nahhhh.)

Weapons grade lunacy prevails...

Don't these idiots realize that American "Army men" protect them from violence? Suppose Susan Wright gets her wish, and we we get rid of all of our "Army men." Will she be happy when she finds herself wearing a burqa while sitting in the harem of a conquering jihadist?

Well yes. I would be tossing thousands of little green army men all over the school grounds. Perhaps gun mags in the restrooms and NRA stickers zapped about campus.

COMING SOON,,,into the bedroom and CONFISCATING the video games of people shooting, jumping and blowing up things.
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Coming soon is a nation of emasculated men who have been mentally de-balled by the Teacher Ratcheds of Marxist and queer dominated K-12 schools.

Coming soon is a nation of men incapable of defending their wives, children, and nation.

Coming soon is the fulfillment of the Marxists’ long march through our cultural institutions.

Personally, I consider government K-12 schooling to be so evil for the child ( both girls and boys) and such a threat to our nation's freedom that I will NOT NOT NOT have a government teacher for a friend. They are too evil, too stupid, or too much of a Useful Idiot to be a friend.

Conservatives and Christians REMOVE YOUR CHILDREN from government K-12 schooling on MONDAY! Honestly, anything you could do as a parent would be better than what they are getting in government school today. Even total illiteracy and innumeracy would be better. At least illiteracy and innumeracy can be fixed. Scrambled brains often can't be.

Yeah. The TSA confiscated a GI Joe who was holding a gun several years ago.

You did good. We still have a lot of work to do in this country, but we've come a long way because of people like you and the good works you do for the rest of us.

We are dealing with the insane, of the same type who protested those coming home who had been drafted, not volunteers, they were drafted by their government and sent to war.

Thanks for being a great "counter balance" to that insanity.

Wife works at a local high school, and in her office, tacked to the wall, is a bag of plastic toy soldiers, “Good Ol’ USA vs Commies”, made nowhere else but in Red China. I think they’ve been hanging there a good five years.

"Principal Susan Wright released a statement to local media defending the decision.

“These are toys that were commonplace in the past,” she wrote. “However, some parents prohibit all guns as toys. In light of that difference, the school offered to replace the soldiers with another item and the soldiers were returned home with the student.”

Living in a democratic society entails respect for opposing opinions,” she stated. “In the climate of recent events in schools we walk a delicate balance in teaching non-violence in our buildings and trying to ensure a safe, peaceful atmosphere.”"

So this principle made the decision base on a democratic vote? or hitler like authoritarian rule??? there's so much hypocrisy from this likely left wing principle its pathetic...

A perfect opportunity for the principal to tell the parent to be "tolerant" and "celebrate diversity"!

Yeah, I know. Like that would ever happen nowadays.
