Our schools have long been Leftist training centers, but they’ve recently taken the next step in their overt brainwashing of our children. Time after time, they are reinforcing the precept that all guns are evil, regardless of context or form.
No need to rehash the myriad older examples: every day seems to bring forth new (and worse) ones, which only serve to further prove my point.
(Courtesy of CBS Los Angeles) – Sophomore Haley Bullwinkle said when she wore her NRA shirt to Canyon High School last month, she landed in the principal’s office for violating the school’s dress code that forbids offensive, violent or divisive clothing.
The shirt, which was a gift from Bullwinkle’s father when he became a card-carrying member of the NRA, features a buck, an American flag and a hunter’s silhouette. It also has the words “National Rifle Association of America: Protecting America’s Traditions Since 1871” written in the center.
In a rational world, this wouldn’t even be an issue. After all, it’s just a t-shirt. But we’re not dealing with rational people: this is now Leftist belief as mass hysteria. Guns, things that “look” like guns, pictures of guns, words that rhyme with guns, and now silk-screened images of guns are to be demagogued and eradicated from existence.
Even better, now how you’re dressed is a potential area of concern:
HARRISON TWP., Mich. – L’Anse Creuse High School was shut down Tuesday morning after a former student, who now works at Selfridge Air National Guard Base, entered the building around 6 a.m.
Security concerns were raised because the man was dressed in camouflage.
Apparently the former student had just left work at the base and went to the school looking for a letter of recommendation.
This young man wasn’t brandishing, wielding, wearing, or in-possession-of a gun. He wasn’t behaving in a suspicious manner, nor did he give any sort of hint that he intended malice. At all. And yet the POLICE were called in to investigate the “incident”?
Actually, that last part is rather ironic when you look at this next example:
(From Fox News) – A police officer who dropped off his daughter at her Phoenix elementary school was asked by the school’s principal not to wear his uniform to the school because other parents were concerned that he was carrying a gun, MyFoxPhoenix.com reported.
Scott Urkov is a police officer for the Coolidge Police Department. The department told him not to comment to media inquiries, but immediately after he received the no-uniform request, he posted on Facebook:
“Nothing like your kid’s school calling and asking if I could not come to pick up my daughter in uniform, cause parents were concerned when their kids came home telling them there was a man at school with a gun, “ he posted.
“Are you freaking kidding me?”
Sadly, sir, no: they aren’t kidding.
Heck, one kid in Washington was initially suspended just for discussing guns, …the Nerf® kind. He was six-years-old, and an obvious high-security risk.
The Left has become so convinced of the inherent evil of firearms that anyone, even our police officers, are now to be feared. Why? I might expect reactions like this from some primitive tribe if I walked in with fire (“Agghhh! Bald man has stick that glows!!“), but for buildings filled with allegedly educated persons, such mindlessness is inconceivable.
I will stipulate that NOT all teachers have bought into this thinking, obviously. But it’s a simple fact that only in schools does this occur with such stunning uniformity, resulting in normal and well-adjusted students (and now parents) being made to feel like criminals.
Too many of these overly educated zealots are now little more than anti-gun Zombies, able to comprehend the topic on a barely sentient level (“Guuuuuuns. Baaaaad…”) . That’s why I likened it to a disease of sorts: they’ve been infected by the feverish dreams of the Marxist Left, and the infection is spreading …to our children, and to the public at large.
My advice?? Don’t get bitten.
Excellent entry JTR … “Agghhh! Bald man has stick that glows!!“ ROFLOL!
Thanks, Teach. 😀
Even as I try to highlight the almost infinite number of egregious acts of the Left, if I can also generate a laugh (or two) at the same time, I’ll take it as having been successful…
The only resolution to this problem teachers and admin have is to require all of them to take gun safety courses and to carry at all times while on school property to PROTECT THE KIDS. maybe they’d get it then.
I’d just be happy with the first one, tannngl.
Having teachers forced to carry could end up being dangerous (for everyone). However, I can’t see how having our educators thoroughly EDUCATED on firearms would be anything but helpful, for all concerned.
Great post, too bad we don’t live in a rational world.
The world has never been totally rational, but we’re undoubtedly moving even further away from logic, and embracing irrational fear. The irony is that many of the folks who are ginning up most of the anti-gun insanity are doing so IN THE NAME OF logic and reason.
It’s kinda’ like having Charles Manson tell you that you’re crazy.
Here’s my take on the push by libiots to promote fear of guns within our schools.
The left knows they will NEVER get this generation’s guns, uhuh, ain’t gonna happen. However, an entire generation of children are being raised with a fear of guns and the consequences of even “thinking” about them.
You wanna know who will eventually take our guns? It’s going to be our children. Well not my child, but you get my point.
Our enemy is very clever and we must do our part to raise rational, conservative, GODLY children.
Great post JTR
Thanks, Slayer, and you’re absolutely right: they seek to turn the next generation’s values upside down, and who can say they haven’t already been largely successful? Not me.
However, these examples (and the roughly 10,000,000 others) are just more reasons to guard against allowing the Left to supplant parents and parishes with schools and the State.
Well said, as usual, my friend. I just wrote a blog after being floored by something one of my youth group members told me at church tonight. I’m so grateful that I have a wife willing to homeschool my son.
And now we all know why the Left works SO HARD to force those little skulls-full-of-mush into THEIR perverted education….scratch that…INDOCTRINATION programs. Vouchers? BAD! School Choice? BAD! Home School? HORRIBLE (because it’s mostly us Bible-clinging, gun-toting, Conservatives doing it.)
WHO CARES if your kid will come out of the public school disaster and CAN’T add, read, or write, AS LONG AS they know:
1. Polar bears are floating around on chips of ice because of AGW.
2. Faith is dead.
3. The Government is all knowing and can make decisions for your life better than you!
4. Capitalism is unfair.
5. Rich people suck.
6. Only mean people have guns.
