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?

It sounds like the sleaze running the indoctrination center don’t support the troops.
Happy Birthday to you...
How about hot cross buns? Even worse?
Next big war we fight we are F#$%ED so hard.
Culture war? What culture war? How could we have a culture war in such a tolerant country?
Oh good grief!
Our Public Schools are run by Marxist Traitors
Thank you...You Stupid Democrats.
Commies In Classrooms Alert!
*&^ing insanity. I am so tired of these progressive birdbrains running our lives & raising our children.
These f'ing socialist teachers need to be unemployed.
By saying unemployed, I am being very reserved.
That's exactly right, Susan Wright (principal) and whether you like it or not you are living in a free society because of our military. And guess what? They carry guns!
17. Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers' associations. Put the party line in textbooks.
Imagine how many more of these stories we never see?
With his name being Hunter, surprised they allow him to enroll in the school...his name connotates violence and guns and killing!!!
The Marxists are training the children to be hoplophobes. It will make disarmament that much easier in the future.
Exactly. Meanwhile, we just sit comfortably in our homes and do nothing other than writing on FR.
We need to use liberal's number one weapon against them - community organizing.
Yet another one. I’ll say it again. Leftists took over public schools long ago. Absurd crap like this is common place. Decent people do nothing about it and continue to send their kids to these indoctrination centers. Most will say their kids school “is not like that”. Sure.
Every afternoon after 4 pm I look out my office window and watch the color guard of the high school across the street practicing with their rifles and wonder how much longer that will last.
