Boy Suspended for Bringing Swiss Army Knife on Camping Trip

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:

Braden-Bandermann

Nothing good can come of allowing the government to educate children.

    Ummah, that would make Reggie Love so JEALOUS!

  4. Jim says:

    What’s next? Having parents pre-chew the kids food ala Ferengi so sharp knives and assault forks aren’t needed?

  5. Tax Slave says:

    I TOLD you a Swiss Army knife was an ASSAULT KNIFE!

    It’s a militarized knife (hello? Swiss ARMY knife!)

  6. KHarn says:

    When I was young, he would have been reprimanded for bringing a TOY KNIFE on a camping trip! I have one just like it, it’s good for trimming my nails and opening letters.

  7. Doug says:

    Whadda ya think, would this knife cause liberal heart palpitations?

  8. Fiberal says:

    What I wonder is whether the school officials that punished this kid ever reflect on the empirical fact that liberalism erases all elements of human decency.

  9. GoinSane says:

    What makes this story even worse is the Obama Youths finking on him. It’s only a matter of time before the “schools” have them ratting out their parents.

    The kid’s only 10 and he is already smarter and with more commonsense than the entire school faculty.

  10. Jimbo says:

    This is why I loath liberals and buy lots and lots of ammo. Liberals are dangerous, dangerous FOOLS.

    Camping without tools or knives? My guess is that the students and teachers spent most of the time on their iPhones, iPads, Smartphones, etc., detailing their non-adventures on Facebook.

  15. pointyhead says:

    I’d call the news media, then the cops and have the principals car searched. If he’s got a tool in the car, and a lug wrench or a jack handle is a tool, then make sure that he’s immediately arrested, and perp walked in front of the media. Then do it to each teacher, para-pro, right down to the lunchroom ladies. Arrest them all.

  16. justme says:

    Clearly it had an ASSAULT NAIL FILE ON IT! DUH…

  17. justme says:

    Are toothpicks classified as deadly weapons yet?

  18. RestlessOne says:

    When I was in elementary school in the 70s, almost every boy carried a little jackknife. (I lived in a rural area where a lot of kids hunted, fished, etc.) My pocket knife had two little blades, a corkscrew, and a little can opener. In a society with a moral foundation, you don’t worry about kids carrying around things like that.

  19. Flu-Bird says:

    Our school system totaly stinks and its becuase of this Zero Tollrence nonsense Frankly we need to return to HOME SCHOOLING and end the brainwashing for the leftists NEA and the DEPT of INDOCTRINATION formerly known as the DEPT of EDUCATION

  20. whotothewhat says:

    I guess pulling out my ACB 90 K Bar would have exploded the teachers head. Full lock down with Black Hawk helicopters hovering with SWAT teams repelling down with full auto MP5s at the ready.

    All on Sweet Water Lake where the fishing and fun never end.

  21. Jimbo says:

    An 8″ tent stake is dozens of times more deadly than a pen knife with a 1-1/4″ blade.

    I bet their campground was scattered with lethal rocks, as well as tree limbs that could be used as lethal clubs.

    Also, a camping trip being supervised by liberals is a dangerously lethal idea.

  22. Clingtomyguns says:

    This boy’s government abandoned his race and religion beginning almost 50 years ago to the disease of diversity, feminization of men, and societal guilt for white privilege. The Land of Fruits and Nuts leads the spread of this metastatic cancer to American society.

    If he were a Sikh wearing his Kirpan, he could sue the scrool back. As a white, and likely a Christian, he and his heritages are the target.

    To achieve the final feminization and emasculation of boys that progressives seek, so that we’re all as just as metrosexual, and throw, ride bikes and shoot balls like Obama, liberals have successfully demanded that we systematically abandon our heritage as Americans as well as many traditions, and love of sport games with knives. It wasn’t so long ago, prior to Hopey Change, that it was popular thought that:

    “Every man should carry a pocketknife. It’s handy for cutting open packages, severing twine, and, of course, eating an apple like a bad ass.

    But it can also be a source of instant, anywhere entertainment. Because it’s all you need to play the game of mumbley peg.

    Never heard of the game? Don’t worry. Today we’ll give you the scoop on how to play this knife throwing pastime that was once popular among 19th century schoolboys, Wild West cowboys, and World War II soldiers. All you need to play mumbley peg is a friend, a couple of pocket knives, and a bit of skill. It’s the perfect way to pass the time when hanging outside with your friends, relaxing around the fire on a camping trip, and bonding with your son.

    He sure looks like a stone cold killer to me

  24. Pegon Zellschmidt says:

    Adolph would be so proud of the little stoolies who squealed.

  25. […] as gun-control, weapons in school, and other issues that are forefront in the media.  There was an article about a boy who was suspended from school for bringing a swiss army knife on a week-long school […]

    Where’s a mountain lion or a bear when you really need one?

    Camping trip. They used to call it ‘The Wilds” because there was the idea that wild things lived out there, some of which didn’t care if you were politically correct or not.

    This kid has only two problems. His parents still have him in government schools, and the family still lives in California (they may even have voted for Governor Moonbeam).

    I’ll bet the Mooslimb kids know how to use a knife.

  27. Elizabeth says:

    Hurry comrades, we’ve got another one showing signs of masculinity. Get him back to the indoctrination center, stat!

  28. 70Stage1 says:

    My kids went to a school run by two female Moonbat Libs. They couldn’t play chase, dodgeball, etc….to violent. Icing on the cake? They changed the name of Physical Education (PE), to “cooperative games”. I swear….the truth.

  29. PisOff says:

    What is a weapon i’d say anything that can inflict harm so why don’t they ban sharp pencils from school

  30. Flu-Bird says:

    Hitler and Stalin were both for GUN CONTROL and also for removing the child from the parents and brainwashing them is state run goverment run schools

  31. rex freeway says:

    You dont need a Swiss army knife. Theres an app on your I-phone for that!

  32. rex freeway says:

    I carried a pocket knife from 6th grade until i was a senior. I graduated high school in 79. Still carry one. Along with a 40 cal glock. 😉
