Stop the anti-gun insanity. Now America’s kids can’t have toy World War II soldiers with guns? WOW.
The idyllic “small town America” and its values only go so far when small town public schools are run by politically correct morons so scared of guns that a kid can no longer celebrate his birthday with cupcakes topped with World War II soldiers who bear guns. It’s absurd. We used to live in a less violent America in which kids were allowed to eat cupcakes and play with plastic toy soldiers bearing guns. Now, we live in a world in which kids aren’t allowed to eat cupcakes (because it offends the food police) and in the odd case where they are, the cupcakes can’t feature plastic toy soldiers with guns.
Idiotette: Absurdly Politically Correct Elementary School Principal Susan Wright a/k/a Susan Chambers Offended by “Insensitive” Soldier Cupcake Toppers
At least, that’s the case in Caro, a small Michigan town. Casey Fountain found out the hard way. His son’s third grade class wasn’t allowed to have World War II replica toy soldier cake toppers on cupcakes for the son’s birthday party in school. It’s all thanks to Schall Elementary School’s absurdly politically correct principal Susan Wright a/k/a Susan Chambers (news reports call her, “Susan Wright,” but the school directory I found calls her, “Susan Chambers”–perhaps she got married and changed her surname accordingly), who said the cake toppers were “insensitive” in light of the shooting massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School. HUH? It’s like saying you can’t have cake toppers that look like cars because, after all, more American kids are killed by drunk drivers than were killed at the Newtown massacre. Watch the two video news reports, below.
School officials actually believe this seismic idiocy is legitimate policy in the “education” of kids. No wonder America’s kids–especially those coming out of public schools–are dumber than ever.
If you are a parent who thinks your kids shouldn’t play with toy soldiers or even see them atop cupcakes, you’re a failure as a parent. It’s funny how the parents and school administrators who are so anti-gun are often the same ones who, just a few years later in their kids’ lives, do nothing to stop kids from seeing violent and sexually explicit movies or playing violent video games.
The cupcake toppers and toy soldiers are nothing compared with the things in America that actually do promote violence.
Also, I wonder if school officials would have protested so strenuously (or even at all), if the cupcake topper was some sexually explicit or violent rapper. Don’t count on it.
A nation whose kids are fully coddled and insulated by incompetent adults is a nation whose kids will grow up to be even more incompetent adults. Sadly, we’re already there in America.
And it’s getting geometrically worse.
