Connecticut School: Veterans Didn’t Use Guns

Did you know that soldiers didn’t use guns to secure our freedom? 

Neither did I.  But apparently that’s the message being taught to kids in Glastonbury, Connecticut.  You’re not going to believe this.

In honor of Veterans Day yesterday, an art teacher in one of the schools worked with students to make silhouettes of a soldier kneeling at a grave marked by a rifle and a helmet.  Why?  Because… ‘merica.

This teacher is educated enough to know you don’t win freedom with diplomacy.  You do it by killing bad guys.

But a couple of other teachers were so triggered by the site of rifles that they demanded they be removed. 

So what did the principal do?  Did the principal embrace patriotism and stand up to these social justice warrior idiots who shouldn’t be allowed to teach children to begin with?  Did the principal encourage teachers to actually teach about history?

Nope.  He called for the removal of the silhouettes. 

Apparently your freedom is only worth defending if you don’t have to SEE what it takes to defend that freedom.  In the minds of these teachers brainwashing your children, freedom is fought for not in the battlefield – but in the streets wearing vagina hats.

Well, dear triggered teachers, I’m sure many of you have kids.  So let me ask you a little something.  What do you do when your kid sees a cop?

Do you cover your kid’s eyes?  Do you rush them off to a safe space so they don’t have to be exposed to the real world?

But I’m sure you have absolutely no problem plopping them in front of an iPad and letting them watch whatever movies they want, filled with images of guns and cocaine and booze while you and your hubs sit on the couch sipping your cosmos watching keeping up with the freaking KARDASHIANS. 

Let’s be crystal clear.  Freedom isn’t free.  Freedom was earned through the blood of our soldiers.  It’s protected by those soldiers.  And no matter how much you want to sit on your butts in your gun free zone encouraging kids to get a gender studies degree so he or she can “feelings” their way through life…. you are doing nothing more than teaching them how to be un-American pansies like yourself.

These teachers – and the administration – has failed their students.  They have failed their own children.  They have failed at their jobs.  They have failed their country.  They should be fired and sent to the unemployment line. 

Don’t worry – you’ll be safe in that unemployment line.  Why?  Because you’re in a country protected by soldiers and police who carry big scary guns.

True Americans know that if you fail at securing freedom…if you fail at holding the thin blue line… there is no participation trophy.  There is only darkness.

It’s time teachers start checking their agenda at the door and start doing their jobs.
