Educrats Ban the Number 18

Astonishing zero-tolerance lunacy from the zero-intelligence government educrats we entrust to teach children:

A third-grader has been sent home from a Greeley [Colorado] school to change out of his Peyton Manning jersey because Manning’s No. 18 is too close to the name of a local gang.

CBS Denver reports Konnor Vanatta was forced to take off his jersey because of a Greeley school district policy that bans clothing with “18” on it.

How do you explain to a third-grader that the reason he can’t wear his prized Peyton Manning jersey is that schools are run by militant fools?

Other numbers banned by the school district include 13, 14, 31, 41, and 81. Yes, I’m serious.

Coming next: bans on various letters of the alphabet.

Forbidden by educrats.

On a tip from Full Tilt.

    Do you think that this is the left’s way of finally admitting after 20 years of coddling the gangsta-rap/hip-hop “culture” as “art” that they were actually very wrong?

    (No, I’m not actually that naive.)

    How about we ban gangs? What a revoltin’ turn of events!

  3. StanInTexas says:

    So gangs are running wild and unchecked in the region. And what it the solution? The law-abiding citizens have to barricade their houses like fortresses and change their lifestyle so that the local authorities do not have to deal with the gangs.

    Great solution guys.

    Please parents, I beg of you, please take your children out of government schools!! There is no hope for them – but there is hope for you and your children if you run away from what passes as public education today!

    Considering the sorry state of public education, the school officials should be happy that this young boy even knows his numbers. But they probably know how to put on a condom and all about the contribution of gays to our society.

    this morning, while driving my angry homeschooled high schooler to the market (her schedule is flexible, because they are not being indoctrinated with wasted time –movie watching, assemblies on bullying {how to } and other such nonsense during cyberschoolin ); we heard on the radio, yet another teacher who is being accused to having a sexual relationship with a minor.

    I didn’t have to say a word, although my high schooler is somewhat angry with me, about not letting her attend school (she misses her friends). I do NOT miss the constant calls from guidance counselors and I don’t have to worry about the ciriculum, or angry bus drivers who can’t drive safely, or guns being brought to school… etc etc.

    This works in nicely with the left’s new war on the NFL.

    Dang…. Now I’ll have to get that MS 13 tattoo on my neck removed when I work on my school’s campus. All the other vatos are gonna give me grief

  9. Jimbo says:

    The boy just needs a jersey that has it spelled out: “Eighteen” The dumb ed-u-crats wouldn’t even recognize it as a number.

  10. chuck in st paul says:

    Perhaps if they banned and deported all the illegal greasers and taco benders that are causing all the death and destruction it might work out better.

    I’m 18
    I get confused every day
    I’m 18
    I just don’t know what to say
    I gotta get away!

  13. Joe says:

    When they keep banning numbers like that, it’s gonna make math class hell.
    What’s 9 + 9? I’d tell you, but I don’t want to get detention.

  14. johnnosk says:

    Upcoming letters to be banned will include G, O, P!

    For some reason, this reminds me of the Seinfeld episode when Kramer is confronted by a gang, The Van Buren boys. He got away free from them without being hurt, because, he didn’t realize it at the time, he flashed their gang symbol at them. He was at a pizza place holding a shaker of cheese when he put his hands up in terror at the Van Buren boys approahed him. All that showed were eight fingers (due to holding the cheese shaker). The vicious Van Buren boys left him alone. Van Buren was the 8th president of the US. (thus their gang symbol!!) hahahaha
    Don’t know why I find that funny. Maybe because we need to also ban the number 8.

  16. Anne says:

    oops, it was the garlic shaker, not cheese shaker

    Maybe it’s a math phobia. Half of them are primes…

    My son got it trouble once in kindergarten for wearing a Power Rangers shirt.

    It had a picture of a sword in one of the Power Rangers’ hands. They said that it violated their weapon policy. They mitigated the criminal offense by putting a piece of masking tape over the sword so he could continue his “education” for the rest of the day.

    I imagine that they were shocked and appalled many weeks later, when they asked if anyone knew what was man’s best friend. I think they were looking for the answer “dog”, but my son blurted out AK-47.

    That’s my boy!

    Separation of school and state is an idea whose time has come.

    [but my son blurted out AK-47. That’s my boy!]

    Sir you just brought tears of joy and pride to my eyes. LOL

  22. FrankHD says:

    This is crazy.
    The next number to be outlawed will be 69 because it’s too hetero…(but 99 and 66 will be still ok)
    BTW the only gang who comes close to the number 18 (unless theres a 18th St,Ave,Pl,Ct, etc..gang) is The Hells Angles who use the number “81” the 8th letter of the alphabet is “H” and the first is “A”, HA, Hells Angles. I doubt that the school has a problem with them running around the school.

    These guys are having too much 420.

    The holder government conspires to allow Mexican ILLEGAL drug gangs to run wild and they prevent the border states from enforcing the law and this is the result?!

    It’s high time to take back the school boards folks. All you plumbers, engineers, techs, electricians, and other ‘useful arts’ folks need to do at least one year/term on a school board near you. I know it’s a pain in the butt, but if we don’t turn this around all the kids will be mind rotted by these chicken littles and other types of ass biscuits.
