Words can hurt . . .

. . . if you’re retarded.

Via bruce, comes this arfcom thread:

So, my phone rings Friday afternoon. It’s the vice principal from my son’s school saying that he needs to discuss a serious situation about my son. When I asked him what was going on, he tells me that a pen bearing a Glock logo is forbidden by school policy and that I need to come and pick up my son because there is a manditory 3 day suspension because of the violation. Apparently, one of my son’s teachers saw him writing with the pen during an assignment.

While I have the VP on the telephone, I retrieve my son’s student handbook. Flipping though it, I see that weapons, replica weapons, pictures of weapons, and weapon images on keychains or other items are forbidden. The pen I had given him was one I picked up at a law enforcement firearms competition last year – which bore only the Glock logo, but not an image or rendition of a firearm. Nowhere does it say that a firearm company logo is restricted by school policy. I explain this to the VP.

    So…how did the VP take his three-day suspension? Maybe he went shooting?

    I cannot list the number for people I know – personally – who have issues with the public school system. We need to fix this.

    It’s scary to think that people like that VP are responsible for the education of our children.

    SevenMaryThree on the arfcom thread said it all; “Zero Tolerance = Zero Thought”

    More precisely, words can hurt, if you’re dealing with retarded bureaucrats — excuse the monotony. The retarded vice principal isn’t going to get hurt here, just the kid and the parent who are actually capable of thinking.

    What I find almost as scary as the idiot Vice Principal are all of the morons on that arfcom thread who think the LEO father should have either shown up in uniform (maybe accompanied by some fellow officers in uniform) to intimidate the VP, or that he and his fellow officers should abuse their authority by targeting the VP for citations.

    Don’t these idiots realize that if it’s okay for law enforcement to abuse the people they don’t like, it’s a short ride to them abusing the folks they do like?

    Hypocrites of the highest order. Bullies. Self-righteous numbskulls.

    Sorry, I’m done now. I guess I’d better get back on my meds.

    Can you say “home schooling”? Were I in your position, I think I could say those words.

    My daughter took a photo of herself firing a tommy gun to her 8th grade class. I received the call around 10am, asking me to come and pick her up. She had asked if she could take the photo, and I did some research before I allowed her to do so. Nowhere in the school policy book does it say that photos of firearms are banned, and her history book contain dozens of images of firearms. I refused, and told him that if my daughter wasn’t returned to class without punishment, and her property returned to her, he would be hearing from my lawyer. I never heard another word about it.

    I have a zero tolerance policy for stupidity.

    Zero Tolerance = Zero Thought = Administrators that are complete MORONS!

    Wow. That’s even stupider than our zero-tolerance idiocy here.

    Chris: That’s the perfect response, IMO. Just shut ’em up, right now. These twitts are incapable of taking even the slightest bit of their own medecine. It’s time more of us understood that.

    When I was in school (central PA) Guns & Ammo was the second most read magazine in the school library (right after the SI Swimsuit edition).

    The Libtards must be stopped…

    My wife is a teacher and invaribly school administrators fear litigation more than anything. Kids can be caught having sex, drinking, and doing drugs on campus during school hours or during functions and as soon as the parents trot in their lawyer the administrators will fold everytime. Student handbooks are for kids that don’t have lawyers. One kid even set fire to the school to hide his MJ smoke and all he got was a very short probation (not suspension) so he could keep playing sports. Intimidation only works as long as you are intimidated and go along like sheep.
