Another little boy has gotten in trouble at a taxpayer-funded public school for having something – or, in this case, drawing something – that represents a gun but isn’t actually anything remotely approaching a real gun.
This week, a second-grade teacher in Colorado filed a behavioral report on a boy after he drew a picture of a gun because she instructed him to go outside, look up at the clouds and draw what he saw.
The incident unfolded at Talbott Elementary School in Colorado Springs, reports local CBS affiliate KKTV.
“Draw a picture of what you see in the clouds from your imagination,” 8-year-old Kody said, describing the teacher’s assignment.
“And that picture is a gun,” he added, proudly pointing to the gun he drew — based on the cloud he saw.
Kody’s cloud portrayal was deemed wrong by his unidentified teacher, who marched him into the office and then filed the behavior report.
The boy’s crime, according to the behavioral report, was exhibiting behavior that is disruptive to the learning community at Talbott Elementary.
Kody’s parents were not pleased.
Can’t imagine why. The plethora of reports like this is just the tip of the iceberg, you know. The progressive feminist mafia (both male and female) currently running our public school systems like their own personal tyranny is marked by this lockstep thinking, and totally dedicated to making even the thought of a firearm into a “thought crime.”
I would guess that for every one of these incidents that actually gets reported, another hundred go entirely unremarked.
