Boy fires imaginary bow and arrow, gets suspended
A ten-year-old boy has reportedly been suspended from school after he ‘fired’ an imaginary bow and arrow at a fellow pupil. No, really
The US government’s monopoly education system is a travesty mostly because taxpayers spend record amounts of money and we get very poor results.
But I’m also irked at the way government schools engage in absurd displays of political correctness, particularly when it comes to make-believe weapons.
A little boy was suspended for throwing an imaginary grenade while playing by himself in Colorado. A school wanted to force a deaf child to change his name because, when using sign language to say who he is, his fingers looked like a gun. Speaking of which, a six-year old in Maryland was suspended for saying “pow” while having his fingers shaped like a gun.
All this sounds crazy, but at least school bureaucrats are consistent in their nuttiness. Not only are they against non-existent grenades and imaginary guns, they all have a zero-tolerance approach for bows and arrows that don’t exist.
Here are some of the details about what happened at a Pennsylvania school.
It is hard to believe that Julie Christie and the other 49 people, actors, writers, artists, musicians, who signed The Guardian letter really want the Bedouins to remain in squalor. Israel most certainly does not
Some of the usual suspects in the politically correct British company of Israel-bashers are at it again. This time, fifty public figures signed a letter in The Guardian on November 29, 2013 demanding that the British government protest what the letter called “forced displacement of Bedouin Palestinians” by Israel.
Not only should these automatic critics be ashamed of themselves for their insufferable ignorance and arrogance, but they are also espousing a politically reactionary, not progressive, point of view.
The letter was signed by “experts” on people, law, and conditions in the Negev in Israel, such as the actress Julie Christie, the film-makers Mike Leigh and Ken Loach, and members of Parliament, including Jeremy Corbyn and Lady Jenny Tonge.
Many of the signers have long exhibited their acute criticism or hostility on many occasions, having signed statements about alleged violations of something or other by Israel. It is less clear their “expertise” extends to mastery of the intricacies of Ottoman Land Law in the Middle East.
All can agree that the Bedouins, numbering 210,000 in the Negev, are the most impoverished group in Israel, and one with serious social problems.
SEE SHOCKING UPDATE BELOW THE PIECE AS WESTERN FEMINISTS COMPARE OUR CONCERN FOR RAPED CHRISTIANS TO HOWLING DOGS (LITERALLY!): The Western mainstream claims to care about women’s rights, and to abhor crimes such as rape. So why the silence when the victims are Christian nuns and the perpetrators male, Muslim extremists?
Yet another phenomenon with a long paper trail in Islamic history has just taken place in Syria, even as the Western “mainstream” — little acquainted with true history or reality — dismisses it as an aberration. Asia News has the details:
“Islamist rebels have kidnapped a group of nuns from the Greek Orthodox monastery of St Thecla (Mar Taqla) in Maaloula [an ancient Christian community where Christians were earlier forced to convert to Islam or die]… “Armed men burst in the monastery of St Thecla in Maaloula this afternoon [Dec. 2]. From there, they forcibly took 12 women religious,” Mgr Zenari said …. Neither the nuncio nor the Greek Orthodox Church know [the] reason behind the kidnapping.”
The “reason behind the kidnapping”? Sexual abuse and rape certainly should not be discounted, as these have been the lot of thousands of women abducted by “freedom fighters” in Syria.
Indeed, a new report issued by
the National Reconciliation Commission in Syria states that some 37,000 women have been raped since the war started. To keep the jihad in Syria alive, pro-war Islamic clerics have issued any number of fatwas, or Islamic rulings, permitting sexually-frustrated, female-deprived rebels to rape women.
Most of these are based on the simple fact that Islam permits jihadis, based on the example of their prophet, to copulate with any captured woman — or, in the words of the Koran, “what your right hands possess” (see “The Jihad on Christian Women: Abduction, Rape, and Forced Conversion,” pgs. 186-199 in Crucified Again for detailed information).
One cleric permitted the abduction and rape of any Syrian woman, provided she is not Sunni. Yet apparently because there are still not enough women for the jihadi hordes, many of whom are foreigners –one Christian child was recently raped by 15 men before being killed — Sunni Muslim women are also being targeted through sex jihad fatwas.
So would such jihadis and their clerics have any special respect for Christian nuns?
The fact is, raped nuns is a phenomenon that goes back centuries. According to Muslim historian Taqi al-Din al-Maqrizi (1364-1442) during his raids on Egypt, Caliph Marwan II (r.744–50) “made captive a number of women from among the nuns of several convents. And he tried to seduce one of them.”
The account describes how the enslaved nun tricked him into
This week’s Glazov Gang was joined by Dwight Schultz, a Hollywood actor, Ann-Marie Murrell, the National Director of PolitiChicks.tv and Monty Morton, a Walking Encyclopedia of Facts.
The Gang gathered to discuss Inconvenient Truths About The Knockout Game. The discussion occurred in Part II (starts at the 13:20 mark) and focused on the key details the media mysteriously overlooks. The discussion was preceded by an analysis of Spencer and Geller Banned from the UK for Pro-Israel Stance and Israel Betrayed.
In Part I, the Gang discussed The ObamaCare Nightmare, focusing on the catastrophe that Obama’s health care plan is inflicting on America.
