Just as the USSR imposed Marxist ideology on every aspect of existence, the USSA imposes liberal weeniness. The latest example of how children are conditioned so that they will grow up to be suitable subjects for their moonbat rulers:
A 10-year-old California boy was suspended and threatened with expulsion after he brought a Swiss Army Knife on a week-long school camping trip.
Tony Bandermann told Fox News that his son Braden was on a science camping trip with his class at Garden Gate Elementary School in Cupertino, Calif.
According to a school incident report, the boy showed the small knife to other students who then reported him to teachers. The incident report stated that law enforcement was also notified.
The little stoolies who squealed on him will no doubt get commendations in their files.
Bandermann, who was out-of-town on a business trip, said he received a telephone call from the school’s principal informing him that his son had violated the school’s weapons policy. The punishment, she told him, must be immediate and severe.
“She threatened to expel him,” he said. “She kept telling me, ‘you can’t bring a weapon to school.’ A Swiss Army Knife is a tool not a weapon.”
But tools are weapons now. Ask Doug Bartlett, the Chicago teacher who was suspended for showing children how to use wrenches and pliers.
Since he was unable to pick up his son, the principal put the boy in 24-hour isolation at the camp — held in a teacher’s lounge where he was forced to eat and sleep in solitude.
Here we see Braden brandishing the weapon that got him in such trouble:
Nothing good can come of allowing the government to educate children.
