Not sure where this one ranks, but it is up there!
A Catholic high school student is appealing a suspension he received after distributing a Valentine’s Day letter to classmates that praised women’s inner beauty.
“Real attractiveness comes from having a certain dignity,” wrote Paul Gomille, a 17-year-old student at Archbishop Denis O’Connor Catholic High School.
Initially, Principal Donna Modeste was on board with his idea, said Gomille, who wanted to deliver his message as a speech.
But later, Modeste suggested some revisions to the address, in particular sentences where Gomille is “judgmental” and describes his audience as “the ones that don’t talk about people behind their backs, the ones that guys don’t flock to in droves, the ones that don’t dress in revealing clothing.”
Gomille didn’t comply with Modeste and ultimately decided to make 136 copies of his speech — the approximate number of students who sit in the cafeteria — and distribute them on Feb. 14, during lunch.
Hours later, he was summoned to the principal’s office and handed a two-day suspension for his “opposition to authority.” Gomille served his at-home suspension on Feb 15 and 16.
What was the offending passage?
The people this message concerns are the young women of this school, and of the world. In particular, it concerns the silent ones, the intelligent ones, the ones that don’t talk about people behind their backs, the ones that guys don’t flock to in droves, the ones that don’t dress in revealing clothing, the ones who would love to be in love, and the ones that are continually disappointed in their appearance because the only thing they have to compare themselves to are the women that have been put on pedestals by our society. This message also concerns those of you who may consider yourselves the so called “opposite” to the demographic I just described. The ones who do dress in revealing clothing, and the ones who try to fit in with the crowd.
H’T Blazing Cat Fur
And the Speech codes continue. One day, if we are not careful, we will all be too scared to even speak, and of course, that IS what the Left wants isn’t it?

“That language is insulting, in my opinion. It’s incendiary and most of all, it’s a distraction. It’s a distraction from what are very real and important issues,” said Fiorina on CBS’s “This Morning.”
Well of course Rush Limbaugh was being insulting. He was using it and sarcasm to highlight the absurdity of Sandra Fluke and the left’s position, which in a nut shell is they think you, me, and every other American should pay for them to have sex.
They call it “women’s health”, but the language associated with it involves pregnancy and sex. They have, in other words, turned “women’s health” into a euphemism for having sex.
Bill Quick lays it on the line, I could not agree any more with him
Of course. This is the leftist, Alinskyite strategy: change the very meaning of language so that not only can you not talk about opposing the left, it becomes difficult even to think about such opposition.
That’s why I’m so brutal in my own use of language. I call “post birth abortion” cold blooded murder. I call “leftists” communists, because in the end, they all worship at the dark altar of Karl Marx. (We already know what you are – now we’re just dickering over price…).
We who love liberty in America are in a war to the death (of liberty) with the communists. It is a war of ideas, and must of necessity be fought with words. Don’t let them take the words we need to wage that fight away from us.
Obamunism on display! Democrats firmly believe in using taxes, and spending, to force their version of America on to the rest of us. Sadly many people fall for the class warfare rhetoric the Democrats have been spewing for decades now. Too many of us are too wiling to be victims, and to wallow in self-pity. Too many of us look at the rich, as bad people, who have somehow “stolen” what is rightfully ours. So, foolishly, we look to government to play Robin Hood, to avenge the wrongs the rich have committed against us.
It sounds so good, doesn’t it?If we just make the evil rich “pay their fair share”, then we can all live in a Utopia where “fairness” reigns. That, in the end is the message of all the”isms” that sprang from the demented minds of Marx and Engels.

But, the promise of Marxism is never fulfilled. Instead of a Utopia, nations that are seduced by the promise are soon robbed of any hope of bettering themselves, or of success. And eventually, they are robbed of their liberties as well.
See, the promise of Marxism might sound sweet, but the cost of the hope of Utopia, a hope that is never reached by the way, is that our freedoms are sacrificed on the altar of Collectivism. This, in essence is what the Democratic Party has become. It has become the Party of Collectivism.
H/T to American and proud for this post!
After you watch that check out the fine work Robert has done on class warfare Here is a sample
I couldn’t give a rats ass if someone makes a trillion dollars a year as long as they are doing it legally, and I don’t give a damn if they don’t give to charity, or church or even spend it on their family. It’s their business.
I hold the rich American in high regard, I figure the vast majority of today’s wealthy Americans earned it by working hard and making the right decisions. I also know there are several Black, Latino and Asian wealthy, which means it’s possible for everyone.
I am in my late 40′s now and unless something miraculous happens I don’t plan on having an estate worth taxing after my death. I don’t expect to pay 70% of my income in federal taxes to pay for touchy feely programs our elected officials dream up. So the dog in this fight is not mine.
I would love to ask the Democrats who exactly are they fighting for?
Well, they are fighting for more money to buy votes with frankly. Democrats learned long ago that they can win elections, and be re-elected if they successfully divide Americans. Be it by gender, race, sexual orientation, religion or income. They love top pit one American against another, creating division and resentment to convince this group or that group that the are “fighting for them”. Sadly, many Americans have fallen for this trick. Of course, the modern-day Democrats are much more closely tied ideologically to Marx and Engels than they are to Madison or Jefferson. They believe not in our founding principles like Robert does.
If so, all I can say is it isn’t any pretty face and it is not all that smart either. How clueless are the Leftists about the Tea Party movement? This clueless!
They cannot grasp the spirit that breathed life into this movement because that spirit is something inherently foreign to the mind of the Left. That spirit is liberty. Individual liberty. Economic liberty, the liberty to live your life, raise your kids, pursue your dreams, work, run a business, make your money and do it all free of useless, wasteful, and liberty depriving government spending and regulation.
Those are principles the Left does not believe in. They do not have faith in people to run their lives. They see people as needy creatures requiring government nanny staters running their lives. So do not be shocked at how the Left reacts to the Tea Parties. The odeals espoused at these events are as foreign to the Left as they were to the man the Left gleens their ideals from, Karl Marx.
If the Left honored, understood, and admired the Founders of America, they would not be mocking the Tea Parties, they would be joining them. Instead, they are still stuck on the failed ideals and empty promises of Marx.
Here is a classic example caught on video
