Back Israel to the max, stop appeasing followers of the Pedophile Prophet. Pro 2nd Amendment, pro death penalty, Repeal all hate crime legislation. Back the police unless you'd rather call a hippie when everything hits the fan. Get government out of dealing with education, childhood obesity and the enviornment. Stop using the military for sociological experiments and if we're in a war don't micromanage their every move. Kill your television, limit time on the computer and pick up a book.

Christmas carolers canned by cranks...

Found this via The Blaze. My comments are in bold:

HAYMARKET, Va. (WUSA) -- They call themselves the "Christmas Sweater Club" because they wear the craziest ones they can find. They also sing Christmas songs at school and try their best to spread Christmas cheer.(URRPPP! Sure sign of troublemaking tendencies!)

Now all 10 of them are in trouble because of what they did at their school.

"They said, 'maliciously maim students with the intent to injure.' And I don't think any of us here intentionally meant to injure anyone, or did," said Zakk Rhine, a junior at Battlefield High School.
The boys say they were just tossing small two-inch candy canes to fellow students as they entered school. The ones in plastic wrap that are so small they often break apart.(Shrapnel hazards?)

Skylar Torbett, also a junior, said administrators told him, "They said the candy canes are weapons because you can sharpen them with your mouth and stab people with them." He said neither he nor any of their friend did that. (A candycane shank. Now I've heard it all. Scotty, beam me up because there's no intelligent life down here.)

Next thing they knew, they were all being punished with detention and at least two hours of cleaning. Their disciplinary notices say nothing about malicious wounding but about littering and creating a disturbance.(Yep. Because "Rudolph the Rednosed Reindeer" is an anarchist's song from the getgo.)

"It was at 7 in the morning, before school even starts, so I don't know what we'd be really disrupting," said Cameron Gleason, also a junior.(There was probably a janitor cowering in fear nearby, it's those sharpened candycanes again.)

Principal Amy Etheridge-Conti says she can't comment on the students' discipline but did say there was a lot more to it than handing out candy and that the discipline was warranted.(This is like, "Trust me, it's for your own good." Am I the only one who learned that phrase & attitude hides a wealth of bovine excrement?)

The boys admitted their incident may have caused litter since some kids dropped their candy canes on the floor. But Cameron Gleason said he spent an hour cleaning up the dropped candy.

The boys' parents think the school went overboard and maybe administrators were trying to stop their boys from spreading Christmas cheer.(Ya think?)

Mother Kathleen Flannery said an administrator called her and explained "not everyone wants Christmas cheer. That suicide rates are up over Christmas, and that they should keep their cheer to themselves, perhaps." (Because smiling, singing adolescents will drive anyone over the edge, right?)

Patti Gleason, the mother of Cameron Gleason says, "I am 100 percent sure they did nothing wrong. We've gotten so many different stories. It went from maiming kids with candy canes, to littering. And then when we received the referral (disciplinary notice) it said 'disruption.' So nobody really knew what they were getting in trouble for, they were just making up a whole bunch of different things." (Careful there lady, you'll land your kid in double secret probation!)

But, like Who's of Whoville, the boys are still singing, not letting what happened to them dampen their cheer.(I'd say any relative of these boys who can reasonably croak out a Christmas carol should visit this school soon for a "spontaneous" acapella performance.)

I've already que'd up tomorrows post and have urged my readers to come over here (link included) and read this story.

Actually, if you check the stats, suicide rates drop over Christmass. And if they were spreading qwanza cheer it would have been all good.

VSO said...

This is something I'd expect to see in The Onion. Feckin' bed-wetting pillow-biting libs!

Cookie..... said...

Post is up at The Shack. I hope quite a few folks read this story.

Subvet said...

Cookie, thanks for the linkup.

Subvet said...

IR, it figures. I wonder if the dingbat administrator was citing statistics for folk who had listened to Kwanza music?

Subvet said...

VSO, another example of life imitating art. You can't make this shit up.

Mary Ellen/Nunly said...

Yup, ya gotta love those PC public school administrators.

At my granddaughter's school, during the height of the big influenza epidemic last year, they wouldn't allow the grade school kids to bring hand sanitizer to school with them because they were afraid they would drink it---because there is alcohol in it.

And these are the people who are educating our children.


Subvet said...

Mary Ellen/Nunly, what really twists my knickers is the "know-it-all" attitude you'll routinely encounter from the administrators. When my 26 yr. old son was in the sixth grade I tried making an appointment to meet his teachers. This was right at the start of the year, so the school receptionist tried stonewalling me by continually repeating that meetings were normally held as part of the Parent/Teacher Night in October.

She and I went round and round with that one until I exploded with, "Lady, here's my view on it. My child is now in the company of total strangers for eight hours a day, five days a week. I DON'T automatically trust anyone under those circumstances. Now do I get to meet my son's teachers? (The last was delivered in a slightly louder voice than I normally use).

I DID get to meet them after that. But parents shouldn't be made to feel as if they're being done a favor when they interact with the school administration.

And you might note that all of my comments have been directed against administrators. In my experience most teachers (not all) are reasonable human beings.

They would rather have Muslims running amok or Gays Pride transexuals flaunting their tatas.

Subvet said...

Rick, those two groups are proof that when libs in charge some folk are treated as more equal than others.
