A Michigan elementary school is defending its decision to confiscate a third-graders batch of homemade cupcakes because the birthday treats were decorated with plastic green Army soldiers.
Casey Fountain told Fox News that the principal of his sons elementary school called the cupcakes insensitive in light of the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut.
It disgusted me, he said. Its vile they lump true American heroes with psychopathic killers.
Fountains wife made a batch of 30 chocolate cupcakes for their son Hunters 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 Hunters class.
About 15 minutes later the school called my wife and told her the couldnt 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.
The school complied and confiscated the soldiers sending them home with Hunter in a bag.
I was offended, Fountain said. I support our soldiers and what they stand for. These (plastic soldiers) are representations of World War Two soldiers our greatest generation. If they arent allowed in our schools who is?

I played with toy soldiers when I was a kid, but we did not have school Nazis
Of course. But I'm sure crescent rolls are ok :-)
Yes, stories like this involving guns or even something as
ambiguous as “gun shapes” are coming thick and fast.
And the more they happen, the more the impression is created
that WE are provoking THEM, and making it inevitable , as though this is something they HAVE to do.
We are seeing before our own eyes the surreptitious takeover of the education system. These indoctrinates were brainwashed a generation ago.
Across the country, these Fluffernutters are teaching children now.
And administering school systems...
That works both ways. Funny thing ... I have guns. Me and my kids shoot regularly. If they keep pushing this crap, they do need to be scared.
If they had decorated them with condoms and **** rings it would have been such a hit the school would have declared an annual day for it.
if that was my kid it would be the last time i would do anything for the school.
The school would’ve approved if the cupcakes had condoms on top instead.
OK, I’m going to make green 0bamaMen for kids to shoot with their BB guns.
When I wuz a kid we were afraid of nukes, not guns.
i’m amazed theres a school district left that allows homemade products. i thought it was store bought or nothing these days
ping for later
at least the school didn’t suspend Hunter 30 times.
Duh, will the same school confiscate food that looks like an Obamadrone?
“How about hot cross buns? Even worse?
Of course. But I’m sure crescent rolls are ok :-) “
Remove the cross, just like Methodist Seminary.
Then they can be happy with their Hot Buns.
Our commitment is always to our children and creating a safe place for them to learn, grow and have respectful dialogues about their differences.
She sure as hell wasn’t respectful of ONE specific point of view.
At least she had the good grace to allow little ‘Hunter’ to keep his name.
>>Many school kids don’t know that Obama goes shooting all the time. <<
