Indoctrination: Kid suspended for making a gun out of a pastry

When you’re a kid you do a lot of stuff that might get you into trouble, but do you believe that making a “pop-tart gun” is one of them?

Don’t know what a Pop-Tart gun is? Well, it’s when you eat a Pop-Tart until it’s in an “L” shape and then you hold the short end. So if you really, really use your imagination it looks like a small, fruity gun.

“We have a second grader, another student has been suspended for something that represents a gun but isn’t anything like a gun. Josh Welch, second grader at Park Elementary School in Baltimore, Maryland suspended for two days because his teacher thought he shaped the strawberry prebaked toaster pastry into something resembling a gun,” Glenn said.

“Welch, an arty kid, reportedly been diagnosed with ADD said his goal was to turn it into a mountain, but it didn’t really materialize,” he continued.

“The father said this was insane.”

Glenn couldn’t agree with Welch’s father more.

“So when are you going to, A, pull your kids out of school or, B, stop calling this insanity? And start calling it what it is: Indoctrination. They are indoctrinating our children to be terrified against guns,” Glenn said.

Glenn suggested that one of the reasons kids can’t read has to be because the teachers are imbeciles.

“How do you like that one, teacher’s union? If you can’t get your teachers to not be afraid of a ‑‑ of a Pop‑Tart, if your teachers are so ridiculously out of control that toaster pastries are a reason to be suspended, your teachers are imbeciles and they should not be anywhere near children. And I don’t know how you argue that,” Glenn said.

Glenn said there were clear differences between a kid bringing a toy gun that looks real and just making a fake gun with their fingers or with some random objects.

“When are we as a public going to say enough? When? When? Does it happen? When? Can we all be together on this one?” he asked.

    Kids need to be taught that there are a lot of morons out there and many of them with teaching degrees.  Take your kids out hunting and they will not be fooled.

    Oh Glenn that is a dangerous weapon of mass destruction. Didn’t you know that pop tarts are lethal? I bet all the idiots doing these sort of things to children voted for Obama last election.

    When will the people finally wake up? 

    Soon I pray, for we have little time left, and the damage is growing greater among the children with each passing day; we not only have to stop the progressives madness, but be committed to how many years or generations it will take to UNDO the damage they have gotten away with.

    We are facing the time of dynamic change in our nation in all areas, culture, social, economy and political; the choices we make now determine the ending – slavery or freedom.

    I used to run around the playground with the other boys and we all made our fingers in the shape of guns and ran around, ducking behind swing sets and sandboxes “shooting” at each other.  We even made gun NOISES!  This natural childishness was amusing to the teachers supervising us at recess.  We were never suspended and never told to stop.  We were just being kids and expending our energy outside so we wouldn’t bounce around off the walls when it was time to go back inside and learn.  
    I will tell you, the Left has an intense track record of championing the freedom of rappers like Tupac Shakur and Notorious B.I.G. to talk about going to war with each other with GUNS. They also have pandered to video games like Grand Theft Auto, which allows you to shoot innocent people walking along the sidewalk.  You can also run over them with cars.  For the record I have listened to plenty of rap over the years and played my fair share of video games (although I abhor Grand Theft Auto).  But can’t we just let kids be kids and not overreact to things like this?  In the case of this suspension isn’t the teacher just posturing and trying to look like some kind of gun control world champion, instead of just teaching?

    People have either been so consumed over the arms debate that reason has taken a leave or opponents of the Second Amendment are using (creating?) this “incident” as a diversionary tactic.

    That is how my 10 year old great grand daughter learned how to shoot her shot gun.
    Her Mom is a great hunter both with a gun and a Bow, my grandson was also taught about guns before he started to school and he had no reason to play guns he was into slang shots.

    Is this going a bit too far? 
    Yes.  Everyone can agree with that.
    Is this indoctrination?
    No.  Glenn Beck is simply trying to scare, scare, scare in order to sell more tickets, books and worthless trinkets.

    I’ve raised 3 boys of my own and was a scoutmaster for 15 years, so I consider myself somewhat an expert on raising boys.  I remember reading an article about 15 years ago about how pc society was trying to turn wild little boys into good little girls with medication.  There was a study where they took groups of kids and put them into a playroom full of toys.  None of the toys were normal boy’s toys like swords, guns, spears, shields, etc.  It was funny that in every group, the boys made swords and guns out of the toys. I thought it hillarious that it was very common for the boys to immediately snap the head off a Barbie doll, bend her at the waist and turn her into a pistol!  Little boys naturally want to play soldiers, cowboys, cops, or knights.  Chivalry is natural for boys play, but it’s not politically correct so put them on drugs and suspend them from school.  Better ideas…. teach them gun safety and how to shoot, put them in private school or home school them.  Avoid the indoctrination at all cost.  Our kids deserve better!  I’m very proud of my one daughter too.  She is a school teacher in California.  She is a Libertarian and can shoot.  We are responsible to raise them right and they won’t stray.

    Just in, The teachers are pushing for the removal of the letters “L”, “F” & “Y” from the alphabet because they might be used to simulate a gun. The current administration is going to modify all curricula to remove the “spelling counts” rule so graduation rates don;t go down as a result of the missing letters.  The other unexpected result of this initiative is that no one can ever fail again since “F” will now be banned.

    That teacher should be suspended. Also the Administrative person who authorized this incident. This insane policy should be discussed in school board meeting.

    Young girls like guns too.  They pick-up on boy’s games and  join the fun. What happened to those ****** adults who played the same games and on the pathway to growing up,  that this weird thought process was indoctrinated —  accepted.

  • Anonymous

    So, where is the outrage from people? This is the perfect example of indoctrination from a young age. Young kids today will grow up to be sissies, just like kids in Russia and China. Their freedom and self-worth will be gone and they will praise their ruler as a god. It will be no different than it is in any commie country. If the dems take the 2016 election, it will prove that America is there already. Elections in America will sag to outright corruption just like they are in Venezuela etc etc. America will become a one-party rule, just like Gore hinted at to exterminate republicans altogether.  People have to wake up and revert to accountable elections that don’t permit the sleeze that was just done.

     I would pull my kid out of that school and rally the rest of the parents to consider a home schooling co-op. It’s time to stop placating these retards. I’m 50 and i had the Vietnam War protestors as teachers in Los Angeles. They’re fn idiots.
      I’m gonna take my 5 year old boy out this weekend and let him blow up some poptart boxes with a 20 guage.

    I do not like hunting and was married to a hunter, and do not care to be married to another hunter, BUT that being said, I support people having guns for protection and even to hunt if that is their choice. I go by what the bible says. Hunting is okay, I grew up around people who killed for fun and practice, they didn’t kill to eat; therefore I don’t like it for those reasons. They crossed a line. Yes, totally agree with taking the kids out of school. My animal killing husband thought I was crazy for wanting to home school our son. They have the crazies trying to indoctrinate the children. Need more real men back into the classrooms teaching.

    Throw the Oreo’s as hand grenades! They look like little black bombs filled with explosive white substance filling… Really gone are the days that kids got hunters safety training in school and for those that passed got to go down to the gun range and shoot .22′s. That is exactly how it was when I grew up. Heck when I was in high school we did not need an armed guard- the whole football team or at least most of us had our guns in the school parking lot. Rifles, shotguns and some handguns, we had no school shootings. Nobody made a big deal out of it either. I think that is the problem- kids don’t get gun education but they get exposure to hyper violent video games. This is bad, they need education about firearms.

    I loved the girls that would play football and basketball or whatever with me and my friends.  They were always the ones that ended up marrying the classiest guys in the long run.  They knew a real man when they saw one.  The girls who sit around playing with their barbie dolls usually end up sitting alone at a bar getting hit on by a bunch of creeps, and occasionally going home with one.

    Oh, come on Bert!  I played with Barbies  (though back when I was that age we had a paper doll craze among us girls) and I don’t go for liberals.  Liberals are the ones that keep mucking around with Barbie, saying she sends unhealthy body images, blah blah blah.  Never mind about all the magazines that have 18 year olds weighing 97 lbs being tarted up and supposedly representing women my age. No, its all Barbies fault.

    We have all laughed, fumed, and complained about children being suspended from school for drawing a gun, making a gun shaped object, or pointing a finger and saying, “BANG!”
    Here is the solution: Pass the word among kids that these actions are a quick way to get a few days off from school.
    Want a play day? Say “BANG!”
    Need a long weekend? Tear a corner out of a sheet of paper.
    Tired of class? Draw a picture of a gun.
    Change this from a draconian and idiotic anti-gun school policy into a kid controlled “day off on demand” policy.
    Pass the word!

    I want to know who provided the Pop-tart? If the school is providing the materials to make deadly weapons the school needs the be held legally responsible. A nice multi-million dollar lawsuit against a school that provides legos, bread, paper, clay, and other materials that can be made into a gun might slow down, or even stop this madness.

    No worries, Bert!  You are right about the indoctrination, who is doing it.  And most of the girls who played basketball or football with the guys in my area seem to turn out to be lesbos or feminazis.  Me, I take no shame in being a girly girl.  And if I had chosen to marry, I would have no problem with my husband being the head of the household, provided he was (and would be since I wouldn’t many someone who wasn’t) a Christian.  Bert, you’re one of the good guys.
