Toy Soldiers Dangerous Because They Have Guns

**Update: "A Rhode Island boy whose school banned a hat he made because the toy soldiers on it carried tiny guns was awarded a medal on Friday for his patriotic efforts." Story here.

No, our public school system is not PC. No, of course not. The continuous, daily drip, drip, drip of examples is nothing more than "over-generalized anecdotal evidence." Uh-huh.

"Christan Morales says her son just wanted to honor American troops when he made a hat decorated with an American flag and small plastic Army figures. But the hat ran afoul of the district's no-weapons policy because the toy soldiers were carrying tiny weapons."

No, this is not a line from a Saturday Night Live comedy skit. Story here. Unbelievable. Have we lost all of our ability to apply common sense?

This story will dovetail nicely with my upcoming post on the current educational "social justice" debate going on in the blogosphere.

Sad very Sad I can not express my feelings about such nonsence.

So, I guess they will replace these with a likeness of Bill Ayers holding a bomb?

Glad the NG rewarded that young man for his efforts.

I can see the PSA now "Remember, Toy Soldiers Kill!"
