Semi-Automatic Pastry Warrants Two-Day Suspension for 7 Year Old

I weep for my country. We are becoming pathetic fools and total wimps.

Consider these jaw-dropping examples of behavior by adults who work in government schools. I think they must be competing for the Stupid Official of the Year Award.

The contestants include:

Here’s another example that belies belief. It starts innocently enough, as reported by a Baltimore news outlet.

Children at Park Elementary School went home with a letter today explaining there was a disruption in school.

A “disruption”? What, pray tell, happened. A fire? A theft? A gang fight?

Well, brace yourself lest you faint in fright at what you’re about to read.

 
At Park Elementary school, Josh was enjoying his breakfast pastry when he decided to try and shape it into a mountain. Josh said, “It was already a rectangle and I just kept on biting it and biting it and tore off the top and it kinda looked like a gun but it wasn’t.” Josh takes full responsibly for trying to shape his breakfast pastry, but admits it was in innocent fun. He told FOX45, “All I was trying to do was turn it into a mountain but, it didn’t look like a mountain really and it turned out to be a gun kinda.” When his teacher saw the strawberry tart he knew he was in trouble, he recalls, “She was pretty mad…and I think I was in big trouble.”

Oh, Heavens. Get the smelling salts!

What was the punishment for this thug?

Josh’s dad received a phone call from the school saying that Josh has been suspended for two days because he took his breakfast pastry and fashioned it into a gun. Josh’s dad was astounded to learn the school chose such a harsh punishment, even after no one was hurt.
But here’s the real kicker. The supposed adults who run the school (and are in charge of educating children) decided that an artfully chewed pastry was “an inappropriate gesture.”
Late Friday afternoon a letter went home with students explaining the incident saying, “A student used food to make an inappropriate gesture.” But Josh’s dad is not happy saying, “I would almost call it insanity. I mean with all the potential issues that could be dealt with at school, real threats, bullies, whatever the real issue is, it’s a pastry.., Ya know?”

The dad had the right reaction.

And the real moral of the story is that we need to break up the government-run education monopoly and allow school choice.

P.S. Mindless political correctness is not limited to the United States. There are also unbelievable examples from the United Kingdom.

I’m making an inappropriate gesture to the idiots running this school.

I blame the easy availability of assault pastries. Any pastry can be easily converted, and every kid knows where to get one. If we can save just one child...

These occurrences should be paraded in front of the public as much as possible. Every Twitter account, every Facebook page, every comment section, etc... Even low information voters get the insanity of this. It needs to be tied to DEMOCRATS.

Zero tolerance for anything resembling a gun. Or even mentioning the word “gun” (like what happened to bubble girl).

But full tolerance of sex with random strangers in public places.

Okay then...

Nevermind the transgendered and gay sex weirdness that is foisted upon kids in school no less to force kids into thinking that that is the new “normal” and that they must embrace the transgendered freaks.

Everyone is missing the point: This is a concerted, organized effort to brainwash the next generation to HATE FIREARMS.

This is what that criminal holder meant when he said “We can’t reach this generation, but we can reach the children.”

By introducing this organized hysteria, they aim to erase support for the 2nd.

This is NOT stupidity or anything. IT IS A SINISTER, CYNICAL, ORGANIZED MOVEMENT TO TERRORIZE CHILDREN IN AN EFFORT TO CONVINCE THEM TO HATE FIREARMS OF ANY SORT.

How to counter this? Don’t know. But maybe a pamphlet campaigned aimed at ratting out the spheres of influence behind this extremist agenda, might be the only avenue left.

The fully automatic chewed pastries have a different sear.

Parents better get organized. Vigilance Committees are the answer. If you don’t know, look it up.

Another way to counter this is to OVERWHELM THE SYSTEM by organizing a “Finger Pointing Flash Mob.”

Everyone bring their fingers to school, and at a predetermined time and place, hold a COPS AND ROBBERS free for all, complete with the appropriate Stick em Up shouts and loud verbal Bang Bangs.

Like to see them arrest some 200 kids at once. And if it happened in several schools at once, the system would collapse.

Just a thought.

No! This in not foolish or wimpish. This is diabolical! It is scientifically crafted brainwashing straight out of a Soviet gulag or North Korean prison camp. These people know exactly what they are doing. The Communists/Globalists are trying to kill the gun culture in this country so we can't resist them.

There is a new movement in education to equalize the number of suspensions between blacks and whites. I suspect that all of these fake weapon suspensions are to raise the number of white children punished.

For a hundred years, the modern state has been at war with human society to render humans more vulnerable and malleable to state direction. State controlled schools are the engine-room of this social blitzkrieg.

Dissolving government schools should be the first act of a humane government. The aggressive institutionalisation of children by way of “education” is a crime against humanity, if ever there was.

Daniel forgot my favorite, a case where a school district demanded that a hearing impaired child's family CHANGE HIS NAME since the sign language symbol for his name, Hunter, included "making a gun" handsign.

I believe that it was a school district in Nebraska, and the district eventually backed down.

What is needed is competition.

Leftists are now in charge of US education. All of it.

Conservatives do nothing about that.

So the problem gets ever worse.

Conservatives do nothing about that.
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

The only possible solution is to collapse the system. Why?

Fact: Government K-12 schooling is the very definition of a middle class entitlement that is a socialist, compulsory-funded, single-payer, compulsory-use, GODLESS, religiously non-neutral, and price-fixed monopoly cartel.

Question: When in the history of mankind has it been possible to reform a socialist, compulsory-funded, single-payer, compulsory-use, GODLESS, religiously non-neutral, and price-fixed monopoly cartel?

Answer: Never!

There are counties and states where, if conservatives and Christians removed their children, the entire corrupt and EVIL system of government socialist-entitlement schooling would immediately COLLAPSE!

But....I guess free babysitting, even if it comes with non-stop Marxist indoctrination, is powerfully addictive.

Well....I beginning to feel a tiny bit more hopeful.

Last week I heard Glenn Beck urge his listeners, for about 15 solid minutes, to REMOVE their kids from the government schools.

I don’t get to hear Rush often, but I am surprised that he, too, is focusing on the danger of government socialist-entitlement schooling to our nation’s freedom.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

It is definitely a crime against the child.

Over 150,000 years of our human ancestors would be appalled at how we treat children. It is abusive. We treat them like prisoners and the only crime that they have committed is to be born! Then, if a child **rationally** rebels against being treated like a prisoner, he is condemned to hart-time prison, euphemistically called “reform” school. “REFORM SCHOOL”? Could Orwell invent a better double speak word? I doubt it!

When did we loose control of our educational system? What gives the Government the right to indoctrinate our children?

When did we loose control of our educational system?
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

In the mid-1800s when government took control of K-12 schooling.

Government schooling has **always** been a middle-class socialist-entitlement that is a single payer, compulsory-use, compuslory-funded, and price-fixed monopoly cartel.

Question: In the history of humankind has it ever been possible to reform a middle-class socialist-entitlement that is a single payer, compulsory-use, compuslory-funded, and price-fixed monopoly cartel?

Answer: NEVER

The only solution is to collapse the system. In many counties and even whole states the entire EVIL system of socialist-entitlement schooling would COLLAPSE if conservatives and Christians removed their children.

But....I suppose free babysitting is powerfully addictive.

By the way, I consider K-12 socialist-entitlement schooling to be soooooo EVIL for the child and such a threat to our nation's freedom that I will NOT NOT NOT have a government school worker for a friend! I won't have an abortion worker for a friend, either.

You must be talking about this one, which I found by doing a search

Deaf Child’s Sign For His Name Violates Gun Policy, Says School District

He probably hasn't heard about as it was not reported in the national news. I have not heard about it either
