Good Grief … Michigan Elementary School Confiscates 3rd Graders “Insensitive” Cupcakes Because They Were Decorated With Plastic Toy Soldiers
UNBELIEVABLE … WHAT HAPPENED TO THE COUNTRY I GREW UP IN?
The insanity and anti-gun hysteria continues in our public schools. This time it is a Michigan Elementary School that confiscated a 3rd graders cupcakes because they were decorated with plastic green toy soldiers. The cupcakes that were supposed to be a birthday treat were confiscated because the toy soldiers had guns. The school deemed this “insensitive”. Sorry for the pun, but what kind of “candy-a$$es” are we raising in today’s schools? The politically correct nonsense is a joke and beyond ridiculous. OMG, those green plastic Army men were one of my favorite toys growing up. Now they are considered “insensitive”. Maybe these school Administrators should be categorized as “insane”. However, I guess the mother who made the evil cupcakes should look on the bright side, at least her son was not suspended for this terrible act.
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 son’s elementary school called the cupcakes “insensitive” — in light of the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut. “It disgusted me,” he said. “It’s vile they lump true American heroes with psychopathic killers.” Fountain’s wife made a batch of 30 chocolate cupcakes for their son Hunter’s classmates at School Elementary School in the town of Caro. The 9-year-old helped decorate the treats with plastic figurines representing World War Two soldiers.
Political Correctness has gotten out of hand. It is simply amazing that we as a society cannot differentiate good from evil. I guess cupcakes with carpenters or baseball players would be banned as well since they might be carrying hammers and bats?
Fountain said it was beyond outrageous to compare American soldiers to deranged mass murderers. “In our politically correct society they can’t separate the good from the bad,” he said. ”I’m sure hammers are allowed in schools — although a lot of people are killed by hammers.” Principal Wright explained in her statement that she meant no disrespect to the military. “By not permitting toy soldiers on cupcakes at school, no disrespect for our military or for the brave men and women who defend our rights to have our differences was intended,” she wrote. “Our commitment is always to our children and creating a safe place for them to learn, grow and have respectful dialogues about their differences.”
The Last Refuge reminds us of the lunacy in the Maryland schools where they dispatched counselors to evaluate the psychological damage from a child nibbling a Pop-Tart into the shape of a gun. GOOD GRIEF!!!
EXIT QUESTION: If the mom had put gay, lesbian or transgender figurines on the cupcakes, would that have been deemed insensitive? How out cupcakes decorated with Mohammed?

Actually, under the watchful eyes of the ‘Government’
the schools are confiscating the children themselves!
This is a skirmish in the battle of the teachers unions in the state of Michigan. The state is in the process of waking up at the legislative level and making it a Right to Work state.
The public school systems in Michigan should be shut down and tax money given to parents for tuition to the school of their choice.
Insensitive to who?
Parents who let their school boards get away with this crap deserve to have what’s happening with their kids.
