A New York school took quick action to ban t-shirts being handed out by a New York National Guard recruiter because the shirt “promoted violence” since it had an drawing of a U.S. soldier in battledress on it. And, *gasp*, the drawing of the soldier was holding an evil, evil GUN!
Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk High School in Ravena, New York, said that the Guard recruiter’s t-shirts were “inappropriate” and violated the school’s dress code because of the gun image.
“They’re not allowed to wear anything that would have a weapon on it,” district Interim Superintendent Alan McCartney told the Times Union. “Our main purpose is education. Wearing pictures of weapons brings to mind those things in our society that are not pertinent to education.”
So, even mentioning America’s fighting forces is “not pertinent to education”? This man is an idiot who should be fired just because he is plainly too stupid to be in “education.”
McMoron, there, was referring to the dress code that insists that kids can’t wear shirts that “promote or endorse the use of alcohol, tobacco or illegal drugs or encourages other illegal or violent activities.”
So, our National Guard, our American military promotes nothing but “illegal and violent activities”?
Jennifer Delisle, a parent of one of the school’s children, told CBS-6 that “there’s a big difference between violent crime and people who serve us and keep us safe and keep our freedom.”
Rusty Weiss noted that the school drama department recently did a production of the famed musical “Annie Get Your Gun.” So, why what that not banned? Because: GUNS!
This is just another example of the so-called ‘adults” in our school systems refusing to act like adult who can make logical, informed decisions. It’s another example of why our miseducation system is a massive failure that needs to be torn down.
