A second grade student at a school in Widefield, Colo., was disciplined after drawing a gun for an assignment, just the latest over-the-top example of how public schools are brainwashing the youth to fear anything firearm-related.
“Draw a picture of what you see in the clouds from your imagination,” second grade Talbott Elementary student Kody Smith summarized the assignment to CBS affiliate KKTV. “And that picture is a gun,” he said pointing to his drawing.
When Kody’s teacher saw the drawing he produced, she made him visit the principal’s office and subsequently issued him a behavior report.
The report states that “Kody drew a picture of a gun when he knew he was not supposed to,” and that he “showed behavior that is disruptive to the entire learning community,” according to KKTV.
Kody’s parents say they’re disappointed that the school deemed it necessary to stifle the boy’s creativity. “It hurts. It hurts that he was so scared for being penalized for his imagination,” Kody’s father, Jeff, lamented.
“He’s 8 years old,” Kody’s mom Angel Rivers defended, adding, “He was doing exactly what he was told to do for the assignment.”
When asked why the school felt it necessary to issue a behavior report, officials stood by their ridiculous actions, claiming it was “in line with routine procedures focused on school safety.” KKTV obtained the following statement:
“Our primary responsibility as a school district is to ensure safety of all staff, students and community. We exercised an age-appropriate reaction to an incident. The student’s education was never disrupted nor is this incident on the student’s permanent record. Our response was in line with routine procedures focused on school safety.”
The school said the incident would not appear on Kody’s permanent record, however, the sheer number of cases in which students are being persecuted for anything remotely firearm-related suggests there is an agenda to “really brainwash people into thinking about guns in a vastly different way.”
Earlier this year, Infowars editor Steve Watson compiled a running list of outrageous examples illustrating how student victims are being persecuted by overzealous thought police and zero tolerance policy enforcers.
As we have thoroughly documented, there is now a plethora of cases of overreactions in schools to anything remotely considered gun-like.
Other similar idiotic cases include the infamous Hello Kitty bubble gun ‘terroristic’ incident, the miniature lego gun school bus massacre, the plastic toy soldier, holding a gun on a cup cake catastophe, and the perilous pencil pointing ‘pow powers’ of Virginia.
Even food bitten into the shape of a gun has been cracked down upon with suspensions.
The latest to do so are Florida representatives who have introduced legislation that says “simulating a firearm” is not grounds for disciplinary action. The bill, which cleared its first legislative hurdle last week, lists “brandishing a partially consumed pastry or other food item” as something that should not land students in hot water.
