Maryland school offers counseling for students troubled by “pastry gun” incident

Maryland school offers counseling for students troubled by “pastry gun” incident

Can we just officially declare the anti-gun hysteria to have reached the point of insanity?

We’re punishing 7-year olds for biting pastry into the shape of a gun?

These school officials have lost their minds, 7-year-old suspended for alleged ‘pastry gun’:

But WAIT, it gets worse:

UPDATE II: School Offers Counseling for Students Troubled by Pastry-Gun Incident:

“If your children express that they are troubled by today’s incident, please talk with them and help them share their feelings. Our school counselor is available to meet with any students who have the need to do so next week. In general, please remind them of the importance of making good choices.”

In addition to the anti-gun hysteria, I think this is just another part of the education system’s “war against boys.

Having a kid in MANY public schools is a form of child abuse.

And, as Glenn Reynolds pointed out, people this stooooopid should not be near kids.

The libs are teaching children that guns are the worst thing ever to happen to our culture, ever. Scare them, show them what happens when you think guns are okay. Indoctrination is the goal, instead of teaching the Constitution.

So this school have to ban itself? I wonder what kind of therapy will be offered to the students?

We are doomed.

Why stop at pop tarts? The danger extends to all pastries.

But this counseling that’s always offered–i.e. end run the parents and make the children weak, malleable, unable to handle themselves without guidance, and they will turn into Democratic voters almost automatically.

Was this a Moochelle approved pastry? If not this could get really ugly and this little boy may also be guilty of the possession of owning the ingredients to make a weapon of mass destruction.

If the administrators and faculty are incapable of acting reasonably and with reason then they should be removed from their positions. We cannot afford for fanatics to be in positions of authority, especially when they have an opportunity to disrupt/corrupt development during our children’s formative years.

The presence of fanatics is demonstrably a greater threat to the lives and welfare of children than any potential threat by lunatics who run amuck with guns, scalpels, vacuums, or any other dual-use weapon.

    That’s not to say that the murder of around one million children annually using scalpels and vacuums does not pose an existential threat, including its role as the principal sponsor of evolutionary dysfunction and driver for the general devaluation of human life.

      Scissors—they’ve got to get Kermit Gosnell’s favorite instrument away from the children.

      Imagine a panel of conservative speakers addressing America in terms like this post’s. Imagine swing voters and a few Democrats laughing or nodding thoughtfully. Imagine a speaker jumping to the podium and announcing that if you care about children, you will Stop abortion now! God requires it!

      The Democrat attack ads write themselves.

      Imagine wavering Obama voters deciding to stick with the devil they know.

Take your children out of government-run schools. The people who run those schools are not accountable to you, the parents, in any meaningful way. They will continue to exercise their power over your children in ways you do not and will not like. They will fail to teach your children how to read, write, do maths, but will teach your children that our nation and society are despicable and even the worst dog-hole in the Middle East run by acknowledged lunatics is preferable to life in the U.S. They will teach your children that white people have privileges they didn’t earn based on their skin color, but will leave out the fact that 400,000+ white men died to free black Americans in the Civil War. There is no cure, no remedy, no reform possible to the government-controlled school system which will make that system responsive to the parents and which will eliminate the indoctrination of young Americans to the beliefs of those who hate America and white Americans. Take your kids out of public schools, even if you have to school them at home yourselves. If you do not, you will live to regret that failure, bitterly, as you watch your kids and your nation destroyed in this wave of hatred for everything America stands – or at least once stood – for.

The mounting insanity and hysteria drove me yesterday to put “Extraordinary Popular Delusions and The Madness of Crowds” onto my kindle and start reading.

In reading the history of nations, we find that, like individuals, they have their whims and their peculiarities; their seasons of excitement and recklessness, when they care not what they do. We find that whole communities suddenly fix their minds upon one object, and go mad in its pursuit; that millions of people become simultaneously impressed with one delusion, and run after it, till their attention is caught by some new folly more captivating than the first. We see one nation suddenly seized, from its highest to its lowest members, with a fierce desire of military glory; another as suddenly becoming crazed upon a religious scruple, and neither of them recovering its senses until it has shed rivers of blood and sowed a harvest of groans and tears, to be reaped by its posterity.

It’s comforting, in a way, to know that this mindless, unreasoning herd behavior has happened many times before; but disquieting, to say the least, to read the author’s bleak acknowledgement of where it inevitably leads.

In our area, it was the pink bubble machine shaped like a gun. A little girl told two friends that she was going to shoot them with it. The family went through hell after that.

I’ve always thought that cupcakes are like little breasts. So if a kid eats a cupcake in school, especially if he licks the icing, does that mean …….?

Education children is too important to be left in the hand of the government

If you stick your finger in your nose does that mean you are going to blow your head off?

At this rate the outraged Left is going to want to outlaw certain levels of testosterone. You will have to take the little pink pill with your small soft drink.

I’m thinking they’re bananas! Oops. Looks like another food where children need emotional trauma training, I mean counseling.

How long before they ban bananas?

Would it be constitutional to require the state of Maryland to disclose to everyone who is considering taking a job in the state how thoroughly f-ed up they are?

1. In addition to the anti-gun hysteria, I think this is just another part of the education system’s “war against boys.“

Leftist feminist author Doris Lessing, 2001:

“I was in a class of nine- and 10-year-olds, girls and boys, and this young woman was telling these kids that the reason for wars was the innately violent nature of men.

“You could see the little girls, fat with complacency and conceit while the little boys sat there crumpled, apologising for their existence, thinking this was going to be the pattern of their lives.”

2. Per other commenters, the “counseling” these kids will receive will leave them worse off in the long run.

3. If a child was disturbed by this non-incident, therapy might indeed be beneficial. I would suggest something like hiking, backpacking, Scouting, Outward Bound…

I think that we have passed the window of opportunity for peaceful change in this country. The inmates HAVE taken over the asylum and those of us who retain rational reasoning ARE the victims that Jefferson warned of over two hundred years ago.

I probably won’t live to see it but it will happen and if not this country really IS finished…

Here is another incident.

Actor Joseph C. Phillips: Teacher Threatened My Son, Questioned His Mental State Over Photo Of BB Gun

9thDistrictNeighbor | March 5, 2013 at 1:38 pm

We got one of my son’s favorite T-shirts outside a Romney-Ryan rally in the fall. I don’t know whether he would be suspended because it is a Romney-Ryan shirt, or it features Clint Eastwood with his .44 making a threat “Go ahead, make my day.” He wears is a lot. Good thing we homeschool.

However, a bill has been introduced in the Connecticut Senate to require periodic mental health evaluations of public school and homeschool students. Those girls at Miss Porter’s obviously aren’t a threat. Guess my kid would be in the hoosegow in either Maryland or Connecticut. War on boys, indeed.

Midwest Rhino | March 5, 2013 at 2:47 pm

These teachers will be disappointed if any of “their” kids end up in the military.

The kids do need counseling though. They have been abused by leftist run authority figures that train them to recoil at even the thought of a weapon.

The training from Sandy Hook should have been of an authority figure using a weapon to repel an intruder. Instead they were taught that the tragedy of a gun free zone was somehow a worthy sacrifice of life. The God given right to self defense is not taught, rather the authority of the state must be trusted to the death.

Once again, actions of the lunatic-left nut-jobs are sooooo insane it’s not even possible to mock them!

Where this kind of crap leads is to kids going to school and reporting that Mommy and/or Daddy shaped pastry into guns at breakfast and don’t believe in global warming. And then eventually to anything that Mommy or Daddy does that the school teacher tells you is bad. Sound crazy? It is crazy — as crazy as seeing guns everywhere — .

And does anyone even pause to think about what this kind of accusatory attention does to a little boy who thought he was shaping a pastry into a mountain?

Elect your school officials carefully. And parents, start participating and call BS on this kind of stuff.

Anyone else notice the state of Florida is shaped like a gun?

On another note: I love Maryland, but I gotta get out of this state.

Maryland has become just as nutty and fruity as CA.

The next time The Prezzzz-O-Bama points his finger at us, shouldn’t we all claim to be traumatized? I mean, how far is it from pastry to hand gesture? And, he’s the most powerful man in the world.

If I were a parent of a kid at that school I’d certainly need counseling – for my concern that my child was being ‘educated’ by imbeciles.

I never knew that a teaching certificate was a license to be stupid. Instead of counseling for the kids, maybe the school should consider sending the teacher to class where they can tutor her on the difference between real and imaginary threats.

The student ate his pop tart into the shape of a gun and he is expelled.

If he ate it into a sexually suggestive shape, he would get an A in sex education.

Great school system.

I don’t expect this boy to be an “A” student for a while.

These kids do need counseling after the “pastry gun” incident.

The counseling they need is that the education establishment is filled with idiots who have an innate inability to rationally analyze situations. Therefore, the kid needs to keep his head down until he gets through school and not be too influenced by these morons.
