Soon School Children Will Not be Able to Watch ‘Toy Story’

This isn’t a news story yet, but if liberal logic succeeds, it soon will be. Elementary school children can’t even think about guns. They certainly can’t draw one or use their fingers to mimic one. And please tell your children not to nibble on a Pop-Tart so it looks like a handgun. There will be grave consequences.

The nonsense never seems to stop:

  • A seven-year-old Colorado boy was suspended for pretending to throw an imaginary grenade. According to Alex Evans, he was just trying to save the world from evil on the school playground.
  • A five-year-old girl was suspended from a Pennsylvania kindergarten after telling another girl that she was going to shoot her. The weapon she was going to use was a pink toy gun that blows soapy bubbles.
  • A six-year-old elementary school kid got suspended for forming a gun with his hands, pointing it at a student and saying ‘pow’. Staff at Roscoe Nix Elementary School in Silver Spring called the action a ‘serious incident’.

It’s gotten so ridiculous that a law is being considered to protect children and parents from such foolishness. A Maryland Republican “state senator has crafted a bill to curb the zeal of public school officials who are tempted to suspend students as young as kindergarten for having things — or talking about things, or eating things — that represent guns, but aren’t actually anything like real guns.” Sen. J. B. Jennings has introduced “The Reasonable School Discipline Act of 2013.”

He had better hurry and get it passed before our schools turn into permanent detention centers.

The latest in government overreaction to a non-issue is the soldier cupcake caper. United States toy soldiers were used as a decoration atop some cupcakes, held in place by a generous portion of icing. The contraband was immediately confiscated.

“School officials at Schall Elementary rushed to remove Hunter Fountain’s plastic soldiers, designed to spice up his birthday cupcakes, for fear they were asking for a fight.”

It probably didn’t help that the young thought-criminal’s first name is Hunter. I’m surprised school officials have not forced him to change it for fear that he will pretend to take down a deer or a squirrel.

The toy soldier confiscation incident reminded me of the ever-popular Toy Story. If you recall, Andy’s menagerie of toys included a ‘Bucket of Soldiers,’ the same type of soldier toys that graced Hunter’s cupcakes.

Don’t be surprised if notes start going home with warnings that watching Toy Story could jeopardize your child’s academic future, his psychological well being, and the planet. If you have a birthday party, be sure that no one brings a Toy Story toy as a gift. It might lead one of the birthday guests to rent the film and see toy soldiers being part of a happy, well-adjusted child’s life.

These types of stories are further indicators that public (government) schools are hopelessly controlled by people who have little sense and even less wisdom. Think long and hard if you really want your children educated by people who can’t tell the difference between a Pop-Tart, toy soldiers, fingers, and a boy’s imagination and real guns in the hands of maniacs probably strung out on prescription drugs that started when they were diagnosed with being ADD or ADHD while in elementary school.

    Gary, don’t forget that a school in Nebraska demanded that a family change their deaf son’s name from Hunter to something else because the ASA sign for the name “Hunter” is a finger gun.

    You have no idea how much liberals get off on taking stuff away from people, even if they are little kids.

    Come see us at the Two Minute Conservative at http://adrianvance.blogspot.com and when you speak fine ladies will swoon and liberal gentlemen will weep.

    Every tinpot dictator whoever made history follow one simple rule! Control the minds of the children and you control the future!

    The Social Progressives and other aligned perverts have been in control of our school systems for a generation. We are seeing the product that they produce in our schools and it’s not a very good product at that.

    Our schools, public schools, are no longer places of education but detention camps for indoctrination! Our children are bombarded every day by socially correct concepts that of most parents took the time to look at would be shocked. Our children are being taught that there is no repercussions for what they do. They need not follow rules of behavior or scholastic aptitude. The schools tell us that it is wrong to grade children on their schoolwork because it might hurt their psyche. The schools teach and reinforce that it doesn’t matter if you excel at something because you will get no more recognition than the person who does absolutely nothing. They’re taught that competition is wrong that trying extra hard to accomplish something is not only a waste of time but it’s stupid.

    Our schools teach that morality and responsibility have no place in today’s world! That history is nothing more than a story that starts out “once upon a time” . Now we have these young people who are morally responsible and have no concept of right or wrong going on to college where everything that they learned before is reinforced. What do we end up with in the end?

    To better explain this look at the past. There are no more guns in society now per capita then there was in the 50s and early 60s. Schools require students to learn and to be responsible for their actions. Many high schools had rifle teams and sponsored hunter safety classes as a matter of course. What didn’t we have back then? Let’s see we didn’t have children in our schools being beaten up or stab. We get every boy carry a pocket knife. We didn’t have mass shootings even know there were guns at school for the rifle teams and in many cases during hunting season students brought their guns to school left them at the office picked them up after school and hunted on the way home. What have the new school systems given us? A bunch of monsters that’s what that feel no remorse for killing other human beings, no remorse for killing innocent children, and they care nothing about the death and destruction that their actions cause. All they know is that their teachers never said they couldn’t do it or that they shouldn’t do it. And they get to be famous for a few minutes that sheds a little light on their worthless lives of mediocrity and socially corrupt mindsets. Welcome to the Future!

    Parents can stop all this B S. You must face the school admin and tell them how it is going to be. I have done this and it worked after I caught he principal off site in a private area and told him what was going to happen if he kept up this crap. Of course he called the cops, which did nothing. His word against mine. But, he did stop the bad behavior.
