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?
16 Year Old Cypress Lake High School Student Who Wrestled Loaded Hand Gun Away from Another Teen Gets Suspended for Three Days
WHAT HAS HAPPENED TO THE COUNTRY I GREW UP IN … now we punish teenagers for a heroic acts.
A 16 year old Cypress Lake High School student in Fort Meyers, FL who wrestled a loaded hand gun away from another teen threatening to shoot, is being punished with a three day suspension. WHAT!!! That’s is correct, this is the lessons that we are teaching students in out dysfunctional public schools these days. The student managed to get the gun away from the 15 year old suspect on the bus ride home. Witnesses on the bus said that the suspect aimed the weapon point blank at another student and threatened to shoot him. The 16 year old who wrestled the .22 caliber loaded revolver from the teen most likely saved a kids life. What did he get for his heroic actions … a three day suspension. I can remember a time when such an act would have been praised. I can remember a time when it was expected that one do the right thing and prevent bullying and stand up to those on school buses who would try to cause harm to others.
The student, who Fox 4 has agreed not to identify because he fears for his safety, says there’s “no doubt” he saved a life by disarming the gunman. And for that he was suspended for three days.
“I think he was really going to shoot him right then and there,” the student said. “Not taking no pity.”
The student says he wrestled the .22 caliber RG-14 Revolver away from the suspect, a football player, who witnesses say threatened to shoot a teammate because he had been arguing with his friend.
“No doubt,” the student said, “he was going to shoot him point blank.”
The teen we spoke to and authorities both confirm the Revolver was loaded. According to the arrest report the suspect, who Fox 4 is not naming because he is a minor, was “pointing the gun directly” at another student and “threatening to shoot him.”
That’s when the student we spoke with says he and two others tackled the teen and wrestled away the gun. The next day the school slapped him with a three day suspension.
What have our schools become and what messages are they teaching our children? as the American Thinker stated, Our children are being intimidated and punished by a malicious government and an ever-weakened society. According to the idiots from the Lee County School District, a teen should be suspended for doing the right thing. I guess the school administrators would rather have their kids look the other way and have students killed? Get this, the teen who saved lives is being suspended because of being part of an “incident” where a weapon was present. WTF!!! Are you telling me that the school does not differentiate between the shooter and the hero? The 15 year old suspect was arrested and charged with possession of a firearm on school property and assault with a deadly weapon without intent to kill. How do they know it was not intent to kill? These school administrators should be ashamed of themselves. What has happened to the country I grew up in?
“It’s dumb,” he said. “How they going to suspend me for doing the right thing?”
According to the referral, he was suspended for being part of an “incident” where a weapon was present and given an “emergency suspension.”
