A seven year old second grader was suspended from Driver Elementary School in Suffolk, Virginia for holding his pencil like a gun. The boy was playing like he was a Marine and another kid was the “bad guy”. The boy held his pencil and made “pew-pew” sounds. The teacher asked him to stop, so he did.
I suppose the story could have ended there, but it didn’t. The Political Correctness Police had to step in and suspend the little boy under their “Zero Tolerance” rule. I prefer to call it the “Zero Intelligence” rule.
Bethanne Bradshaw, a spokesperson for Suffolk Public Schools said “A pencil is a weapon when it is pointed at someone in a threatening way and gun noises are made”

Are you kidding me? What’s wrong with these people? Clearly, these are rhetorical questions, but I’ll provide the answers anyway. The liberal/progressive/socialist/communist/whatever-you-want-to-call-it agenda has perverted our public school system just like it has perverted the rest of our society. Schools are no longer places for children to learn – they’re places for adults with agendas to push their agendas and forcefully indoctrinate our children into their liberal mindset. Children can’t pray, they can’t show respect to our flag, they can’t play dodge-ball or tag or pretend Cowboys and Indians. It’s absolutely ridiculous, and it’s why my children go to a private school. The public school system is a joke – and unfortunately, it gets less funny every day when absurdities like this happen.
