The left constantly refers to conservatives as ‘extreme’ in their views while painting themselves as the model of sanity. Does that match reality? Not in Philadelphia, where one 5th grader was scolded by the school and called a ‘murderer’ by her peers because she had a paper ‘gun’ on her at school. The actions have done irreparable harm to the little girl.
Melody Valentin’s grandfather had made her the “gun” — which resembled a piece of paper with a chunk torn out of it — the day before, and she stuck it in her pocket and forgot about it, WTXF-TV reported. When she went to throw it out in class the next day, another student spotted it and called her out. A school administrator was summoned, and Melody was reprimanded for having the paper.
“He yelled at me and said I shouldn’t have brought the gun to school and I kept telling him it was a paper gun but he wouldn’t listen,” she told the station. The administrator allegedly threatened to have her arrested, and other students called her a “murderer.”
Melody’s mother, Dianna Kelly, is furious and has been keeping her daughter out of class to avoid harassment. She said she wants to pull her out of the school permanently.
“Why did he threaten my daughter? Why did you stand over my daughter and tell her that you should call the cops on her? ‘You can be arrested?’ Why were you trying to scare her?” Kelly said.
School officials did not return a request for comment from WTXF. The Philadelphia school district said it was looking into the matter.
“This is not extreme. This is insanity. And you have to ask yourself, who is insane? Which one of us is insane? This is 2 plus 2 equals 5. This is 1984. Which one of us is insane? For them to equate and search a kid with a paper gun and then call them a murderer and have the teacher say, you know, we could call the police on you and we should call the police, that’s what ‑‑ in front of children, that’s what she said, with a paper gun. Which one is insane? Are we insane? Or is the teacher insane? And the entire school system insane?”
“Because they are doing it, but I don’t think they are doing it for any other reason than indoctrination. And if they are not ‑‑ if they don’t know they are indoctrinating the kids to give an irrational fear ‑‑ and they do. But if they don’t, they’re crazy. They’re crazy. And their judgment is so off, your children should not be around them. And if they are not insane and they know what they’re doing, then you’re crazy. Because you’re allowing it to happen, to your children. You have a profound responsibility. We all do. You’re not going to be able to change those school districts, but you’ve got to get your kids away. You have to get your kids away. No matter what the cost is to you, the responses of what we do and do not do will come when our children come of age.”
