Rocky Mountain High School Students Say Pledge of Allegiance in Arabic_One Nation Under Allah 001
Rocky Mountain High School in Fort Collins, Colorado where students recited The Pledge of Allegiance in Arabic, replacing “Under God” with “Under Allah”

Hat/Tip to Rick Wells at GOPTheDailyDose.

When will the moon-battery ever end??

The principal at Rocky Mountain High School in Fort Collins, Colorado, is facing a hailstorm of criticism from some very angry parents and residents.

The school recites the Pledge of Allegiance weekly, on Mondays. Last Monday, a member of their “Cultural Arms Club” led the student body in an Arabic version of the pledge, replacing the words “under God” with “under Allah.”

But the principal says his school isn’t pushing any agenda, Arabic or otherwise.

Principal Tom Lopez denies any attempt to push an Islamic agenda, saying, “These students love this country. They were not being un-American in trying to do this. They believed they were accentuating the meaning of the words as spoken regularly in English.”

Principal Lopez doesn’t make any sense. Speaking unintelligible words in Arabic in some way accentuates their meaning? That is an extremely weak argument in defense of an ill-advised decision.

He said the cultural clubs seeks to “destroy the barriers, embrace the cultures” that exist within the high school.

That would translate into “destroy the barriers to Islam and embrace it,” correct, Mr. Lopez?

So this school made a mistake, right? I mean everyone is entitled to make a mistake. Well, maybe they’ve been down this road before…

The Poudre School District communications director, Danielle Clark, said they understand why parents are upset. She told Fox News, “We understand not everybody would agree with the students’ choice. We’ve heard there are some who are upset.”

Let’s put his into perspective for the feeble-minded Clark and Lopez. It is not the student’s choice. They do not control the public address system. It was a school choice.

The amount of stupidity that these school administrators can stoop to, is only surpassed by their apparent lack of knowledge of our country’s founding.

Her simplistic defense included a reference to “one” supportive email and a reference to a similar mistake last year which drew controversy when the pledge was recited in Spanish. Somehow not learning from and expanding upon your previous mistakes is perceived as a viable defense for these educators.

“We deferred to the students because it’s their deal,” she said.

As if to reinforce the idiocy of reciting the pledge in another language, Clark said she did not hear the pledge and does not speak Arabic so she could not confirm exactly what words were used.

 But one local resident broke it down to a level that, hopefully even the “elite masterminds” in control at Rocky Mountain High School in Fort Collins, Colorado can understand.

One resident, Chris Wells put it in terms even educator Lopez could understand. Writing in The Daily Coloradoan, he said:

“As a veteran and a friend of a man killed defending these children in their little games they like to play with our pledge, I’m offended. There are things that we don’t mess with – among them are the pledge and our anthem.”

Just in case those folks in Colorado are too “fuzzy” from a “contact high”, here is another explanation of our beloved Pledge of Allegiance. Please pay attention Red Skelton’s voice at the end of this video. You can hear the catch in his throat as he gets choked up over expressing his love for his country.

Hollywood, AND Rocky Mountain High School in Colorado, you could do well to learn a thing or two from this Great American.

School Shuts Down Toy Drive When Athiests Threaten to Sue

Share

taking on their typical role as “Grinch,” athiests, who cannot stand the mention of God, Jesus, or the day we celebrate his birth, threatened to sue a school that dared to offer a toy drive for underprivileged children.  Poor Richard’s News has the story…

from WLTX:

An elementary school in Cayce is canceling a Christmas toy drive after a threat of legal action.

East Point Academy is a publically-funded charter school under the South Carolina Public Charter School District. About 360 students attend.

For the past three years, the school has participated in “Operation Christmas Child.” Under the program, kids collect toys, pencils and other small items, pack them into shoe boxes, and donate to needy children.

That now has to stop after the school received a letter Monday from the American Humanist Association, a national nonprofit organization with over 20,000 members and 125,000 supporters across the country, according to the letter.

The mission of American Humanist Association’s legal center, according to the letter, is “to protect one of the most fundamental principles of (American) democracy: the Constitutional mandate requiring separation of church and state.”

The letter called the school’s involvement in Operation Christmas Child “unconstitutional.”

“The letter was very explicit that there would be litigation against us if we did not stop,” said school East Point Academy’s principal, Renee Mathews.

Mathews said that of the two full years the school has participated, before the practice was stopped with the letter, about 100 families participated each year.

The letter came as a shock to her and others at the school because she hasn’t had many issues from the local community.

“We have parents that ask questions, but in this case, it’s not really a parent. It’s an outside group,” she said.

The letter was sent on behalf of a parent at the school. It points to the fact that Operation Christmas Child is part of “Samaritan’s Purse,” an international Christian based organization led by Franklin Graham, son of Evangelist Billy Graham.

“There’s no religious literature tied with it,” Mathews said. “There’s no speakers who come. There’s no religious affiliation at all.”

So, someone can just go and threaten to sue a school, and they cave?  Or, when a school deprives a Christian child or family of their religious freedoms, someone has to file a suit and fight it out?  I wonder why that is?

Fascist Friday: Eleven Year old Earns Suspension for Talking About Gun

Share

fascist friday

That’s right, all a child needed to do was to mention a gun, and he earned a ten day suspension.  Here is the story, from WMAL…

OWINGS, MD — The father of a middle schooler in Calvert County, Md. says his 11-year-old son was suspended for 10 days for merely talking about guns on the bus ride home.

Bruce Henkelman of Huntingtown says his son, a sixth grader at Northern Middle School in Owings, was talking with friends about the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre when the bus driver hauled him back to school to be questioned by the principal, Darrel Prioleau.

“The principal told me that with what happened at Sandy Hook if you say the word ‘gun’ in my school you are going to get suspended for 10 days,” Henkelman said in an interview with WMAL.com.

So what did the boy say?  According to his father, he neither threatened nor bullied anyone.

“He said, I wish I had a gun to protect everyone. He wanted to defeat the bad guys. That’s the context of what he said,” Henkelman said. “He wanted to be the hero.”

The boy was questioned by the principal and a sheriff’s deputy, who also wanted to search the family home without a warrant, Henkelman said. “He started asking me questions about if I have firearms, and [the deputy said] he’s going to have to search my house.  Search my house?  I just wanted to know what happened.”

No search was performed, and the deputy left Henkelman’s home after the father answered questions in a four-page questionnaire issued by the Sheriff’s Office.

So, the kid mentioned guns in the context of protecting others, and he gets suspended?  And, how is it that law enforcement can demand to search a home without probable cause or a warrant?   This is a prime example of knee-jerk reactionary nonsense.  Emotional thinking leads to stupid decisions, and this is a prime example.

#FreeKate Update: Does Video Show Kaitlyn Hunt Being Less Than a “Model Citizen?”

Share

The only “approved” photo of Kaitlyn Hunt.

A video has emerged that reportedly portrays alleged sex abuser Kaitlyn Hunt in a negative light. It was reportedly uploaded by another student at the Hight School attended by the #FreeKate hero.  Here is the video…

Here is the coverage from Viral Read…

Supporters of the “Free Kate” movement say Hunt is a victim of homophobia who “made a mistake.” Her lawyer Julia Graves says Hunt is a “model citizen,” but video surfaced over the weekend that would appear to contradict that claim.

“Beat her f–king ass, Emily! Beat her ass! Get that bitch!” the girl reported to be Kaitlyn Hunt shouts in the video showing two girls fighting on the beach.

The video, which Viral Read staff were able to convert to YouTube format, was first posted Saturday at a Tumblr site by a teenager who says he is a Sebastian High classmate. The anonymous teen said “that the way the media is portraying [Hunt] is far from reality. … she is not a good person and is not ‘innocent’. She … constantly starts high school drama, gets in school suspensions, and is overall not well liked at all.” As proof that the girl yelling on the video is actually Hunt, the anonymous poster referred to the arrest record which describes her as having three tattoos, including a bird on her right shoulder. The tattoo appears briefly in the video at the 14-second mark:

So, if this video is what it is said to be, Kaitlyn Hunt is not the “model citizen” that the #FreeKate crowd would suggest.  Frankly, the longer this goes on, the worse Kaitlyn Hunt looks, and the more foolish the #FreeKate crowd appears.

Barney Rubble Shot Dead!

Share

Bedrock resident Barney Rubble was shot dead in front of his son’s school today.

“This was a tragic incident” said the Bedrock SWAT commander.

But given the recent uneasiness over the Newtown school shooting it is understandable what happened.  My team acted appropriately and within the rules of engagement.

While the incident is still under the review no one denies that the facts are these:

Shortly before 3 pm local time Barney Rubble arrived at the Bedrock Middle school to pick up his son, Bamm-Bamm Rubble.  Because of the strike by Bedrock school bus drivers most students either were walking home or having their parents pick them up.

After arriving at the school Mr. Rubble stood in front of the building for a few minutes.  Not seeing his son he began to shout, “Bamm-Bamm!  Bamm-Bamm!” repeatedly.

At the first sounds of “Bamm-Bamm” school administrators, not knowing the source of the threatening sound had the school locked-down.  As per lock-down procedure a call was placed to Bedrock’s SWAT team.

Upon arriving at the school the SWAT team noticed a white male, approximately 35 years of age wearing a brown shirt and apparently no pants standing in front of the school with his arms raised in a threatening manner and shouting “Bamm-Bamm!”

Said a SWAT team member:

I checked the “School Shooter” app on my iPhone and he fit the profile.  White.  No pants.  Acting threateningly.  After canvassing the ground to ensure that no children were in the line of fire we proceeded to engage the suspect.

As frightened children watched from the windows of the school Rubble took a few steps towards the front entrance, still shouting “Bamm-Bamm!” when he was cut down by bullets.

“Dude” one child later told investigators

the top of his head like just freaking exploded!  His skull and brains went flying up in the air.  It was so cool.  I took a photo of it with my phone and uploaded it to Facebook.  It’s my cover photo now.

After officers verified that Rubble was dead the students were let out of the school.

A hysterical Bamm-Bamm Rubble was not allowed to approach his father’s body.

“You f*cking killed my father you b*stards!” he shouted before being restrained.

“I thought that language was a little inappropriate for a child that age.  But what do you expect with what they watch on TV nowadays” said a teacher.

Mrs. Rubble, after being informed of her husband’s death was given the chance to address the citizens of Bedrock.  Standing in front of a phalanx of cameras the newly-widowed Betty Rubble apologized for her husband’s actions.

While I grieve I recognize that he acted inappropriately.  I do not blame the authorities for my husband’s death.  I wish to thank the teachers of Bedrock Middle School for their quick thinking and I hope that today’s events will prevent further tragedies like this from happening.

The Mayor of Bedrock issued a statement thanking Mrs. Rubble for her correct attitude and closed with the hope that

in the future parents will refrain from calling their children “Bamm-Bamm.”  Perhaps a more friendly name like “Sunshine” or “World Peace” would be more appropriate.

As for the Bedrock school bus driver’s strike, representatives for union and management have postponed tomorrow’s round of negotiations out of respect for the trauma the children have suffered.

School Voice Mail Greeting Bashes Entitled Parents

Share

If you’re a regular reader here, you know that I bash the public school indoctrination system.  And, it is rotten-right to the core.  However, there is another angle to consider; that there are many entitled parents and students, that think the rules, and reality, do not apply to them.  I would imagine that we all know entitled people, and if we work with them, we also know that it can be a nightmare.

The following video is purported to be from an actual school in Australia, which is allegedly being sued by parents for poor grades given to children.  I found it over at Freedom by the way…

Of course, this is the internet, and this could be a complete fabrication, and chances are, it is.  But either way, it’s hilarious.

Teaching and Brain-Dead Liberal Students

Share

Of all the students in my class, the ones who are the least intelligent are the liberal ones. As Ronald Reagan once said, it isn’t that these students are ignorant- in a great many cases, these students earn A’s in all their classes and have a considerable wealth of knowledge on the issues and the subject matter. But what makes them just so darned unintelligent is that they know so much that isn’t so.

For example, one of my students every day talks about the right to occupy public places that the people in the Occupy Wall Street movements are exercising. He knows that individual citizens have the right to squat on public places and protest, regardless of time, place, and manner restrictions, and he knows this beyond a doubt in his little mind. But what he knows isn’t so- at no time has any court or legal scholar ever argued that people have an unlimited right to live on public lands without being molested- in fact, there are considerable and respected time, place, and manner restrictions on protesting on public property, and this includes not being able to sleep overnight in tents in public parks. My student isn’t ignorant of the laws and rules and regulations regarding the First Amendment; rather, it is that he knows things where aren’t so.

Another one of my students knows that under President George W. Bush and the Republicans, our nation was plunged into a severe recession that President Barack Obama has had to battle his entire time in office. She knows that the recession began under Republican control of Congress and the Presidency, and here in Michigan she knows that the recession can be blamed on a Republican Governor and state Congress. She is not ignorant- if I were to ask her when Congress was taken over by the Democrats, when President Obama took office, when the Great Recession started, or when Democrats lost control of the Michigan Congress or Governorship, she’d be able to tell me. It is just that when I ask her to put all this information together, she suddenly knows things that aren’t so, because the truth of the matter is that the Great Recession began in 2008 during the last year of Bush’s presidency, under a Democrat Congress, and in Michigan there was a Democratic Governor and Congress too. What she knew wasn’t so!

Another student last week knew that global warming was happening- that is, she knew that ever since the industrial age began, human activity has been causing a steady and progressively accelerating of the global temperatures. She knew this to be so, and she was a good student who every day would quote from the New York Timesor Barack Obama, so she wasn’t ignorant- it was just that what she knew wasn’t so. The temperature of the globe has not been steadily rising in temperatures since the industrial age, and to be honest, it is difficult to determine beyond a shadow of a doubt whether it is rising even now, what with data being manipulated by scientists, a lack in measuring stations, and an overall problem of putting thermometers near industrial and populated areas that naturally emit a lot of heat.

Just why exactly are the liberals and left-wing of our nation brain dead? In an article that appears in the Wall Street Journal called The Brain Dead Left, James Tarantohinted at the reason why this may be when he wrote:

…Obama has multiple degrees from Ivy League colleges and spent a good deal of his career as a part-time professor. At Columbia, Harvard and the University of Chicago, he absorbed the politically correct nostrums of the academic left. But he didn’t pick up much by way of critical thinking skills (although at least he doesn’t scream at banks).

He didn’t have to learn how to think, since he was thinking all the “right” thoughts anyway. So he came to office with lots of ideological preconceptions but no ability to adapt or innovate. As a result, he is simply in over his head intellectually–at the mercy of allies, opponents and events…

The reason that our liberal friends know so much that isn’t so may just be the fact that their movement is intellectually bankrupt, starved of critical analysis by supporters who have few thinking skills and are unable to question their own theories and views because of the rigidity of political correctness.

Although they are not ignorant people, they do know so much which isn’t so, and that is why as a teacher I have great job in teaching the students above what is really so- that the OWS people have no right to squat on public lands, that the blame for theGreat Recession is complicated and unclear, that the global warming theory as advanced by this student was incorrect, and that President Obama is a bad bad President.

UPDATE: Today another liberal student, who is a rather intelligent one and who knows a lot about a range of subjects, again demonstrated that the problem with liberals is not they they are not smart or ignorant, but rather it is that they know so much that isn’t true. This student sent me an email that said

“There are two difference between the Occupy Wall Street movement and all other movements in American history- the first is that they represent the views of all Americans, and the second is that the situation today, unlike at other times in the past, justifies any sorts of violent, anti-social, law-breaking behavior.”

The liberal student could tell you everything there is to know about other social movements, identifying the main people, years, influences, impact, and other details with these movements, and this liberal student scored very well on Advanced Placement tests in World History and US History and knows all about history.

And yet it isn’t what this student knows that is wrong, but what this student thinks they do know that is wrong.

First, OWS does not represent ‘the views of all Americans’- there hasn’t been a single credible poll that shows that it represents even the majority of Americans, and in fact a lot of polls show that the majority of Americans are against it. Second, there is nothing about the current political situation more so than others in the past that justifies the sort of violent, law-breaking activity that characterizes the Occupy Wall Street movement- today is no more or less unique than the past and the beauty of the law is that it is above the moments of the time and is blind to the passing of the ages. This liberal student’s problem is that the things that they think they know are in fact wrong, and so all actions and decisions based on these wrong things are wrong actions and decisions.
