Remember when Muslims demanded that Burger King change a stylized representation of ice cream because they thought it looked like chicken scratch for “Allah” turned sideways? That level of absurdity has now been topped by comparably totalitarian and hysterically anti-gun educrats:
A Nebraska school district wants a 3-year-old deaf boy to change the way he signs his name because they say the gesture makes his hands look like weapons, the boy’s family claims.
The district, in Grand Island, about three hours west of Omaha, has a policy that forbids kids bringing to school “any instrument … that looks like a weapon,” local station KOLN reported.
According to the report, Hunter Spanjer signs his name by crossing his index finger and middle finger and then wagging his hands, which the school says is not appropriate.
Actually, it is completely appropriate:
“It’s a symbol,” his father, Brian Spanjer, added. “It’s an actual sign, a registered sign, through S.E.E.,” or Signing Exact English, a sign language system.
But the important thing is the safety of the children. What if his fingers go off and someone gets shot?
Next moonbats will ban the letter L because it looks like a gun pointing upward to murder innocent birds.
