It would seem that the Pit of Eternal Liberal Stupidity is, indeed, bottomless

Pit of Eternal Liberal Stupidity

Pit of Eternal Liberal Stupidity

Wouldn’t it be refreshing, just once, if Liberals admitted they were wrong instead of doubling down on inanity

Here’s a copy of the letter the school sent to parents:

Dear Parents and Guardians:

I am writing to let you know about an incident that occurred this morning in one of our classrooms and encourage you to discuss this matter with your child in a manner you deem most appropriate.

During breakfast this morning, one of our students used food to make inappropriate gestures that disrupted the class. While no physical threats were made and no one [was] harmed, the student had to be removed from the classroom.

As you are aware, the … Code of Student Conduct and appropriate consequences related to violations of the code are clearly spelled out in the Student Handbook, which was sent home during the first week of school and can be found on our website, http://www.aacps.org….

If your children express that they are troubled by today’s incident, please talk with them and help them share their feelings. Our school counselor is available to meet with any students who have the need to do so next week. In general, please remind them of the importance of making good choices.

HT: Legal Insurrection

So, if a student, a child, eating a strawberry Pop-Tart into a shape, because seven-year-olds are kids and kids do that kind of thing, causes a teacher with obvious mental shortcomings to freak out, other kids might need counseling? Excuse me while my head explodes.

 

The Left’s war on anything traditionally American

Now it is Valentine’s Day that is “culturally unequal”

Via Fox News:

Boys and girls at a Massachusetts elementary school have been banned from bringing Valentine’s Day candy or cards over cultural equality issues and federal guidelines regulating candy.

Parents of students at Salemwood Elementary School in Malden, Mass, received a letter informing them of the policy – that impacts not just Valentine’s Day – but all holidays.

“We have many different nationalities, cultures and languages spoken,” Principal Carol Keenan told Fox News. “Because of that we don’t honor specific holidays.”

Keenan said she did not want some students feeling left out.

“This is done with all good intentions – to have all students be accepted, to have all students feel like they belong,” she said.

Why do Leftists hate kids?

 

Infamous Left-Wing Activist Court Rules Teacher Must Remove ‘In God We Trust’ Classroom Banners

Court Rules Teacher Must Remove ‘In God We Trust’ Classroom Banners – The Blaze

Bradley Johnson has been a mathematics teacher in California’s Poway Unified School District for decades. And for much of that time, he has prominently displayed patriotic and faith-themed banners in his classrooms – a move that has drawn intense criticism and removal mandates from school officials.

……………………….

The banners, which touted messages like “In God We Trust,“ ”God Bless America,“ and ”God Shed His Grace on Thee,” were ordered taken down by a school principal back in 2007 when Johnson transferred to a new high school. But for years, the AP calculus teacher says that nobody saw any problem with them:

“Nobody thought there was anything wrong with them. Administrators, superintendents, school board people who had been in my room.”

After the banners came down, the veteran educator, feeling targeted over the Christian theme of the banners, filed a Free Speech lawsuit. The Los Angeles Times explains the reason for his legal challenge:

To Johnson, the banners were no more an assertion of a religious point of view than the Tibetan prayer flag, Dalai Lama poster and Malcolm X poster that other teachers had in their classrooms.

At first, Johnson was successful in his pursuits. Last year, Federal Judge Roger Benitez sided with him and ruled that his First Amendment rights had been infringed upon. But in a follow-up court ruling on Tuesday, the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals rejected this claim.

The God-focused banners, which the teacher put back up after his previous court victory, were again ordered to be taken down. In this ruling, the three-judge panel claimed that the principal and the board have the right, just as any employer does, to place limits on employees’ speech. The Times continues:

The size of the banners – some 7 feet wide by 2 feet high – made them “a promotion of a particular viewpoint,” Principal Dawn Kastner is quoted as saying in the court’s 40-page opinion.

The Christian Science Monitor provides more information about the ruling:

The appeals court said Johnson was a government employee hired to teach math, not to “use his public position as a pulpit from which to preach his own views on the role of God in our nation’s history to the captive students in his mathematics classroom.”

In addition to removing the banners, the appeals court ordered Johnson to pay the school board’s legal expenses. Johnson, though, is undeterred. He says he’s willing to take the fight all the way to the Supreme Court.
