10 times schools took political correctness to the EXTREME and the ABSURD

Rebel Staff
 

From banning moments of silence to remember the victims of 9/11 out of fear it could offend Muslims to straight up banning yoga because of 'cultural appropriation', here are ten times that schools crossed the line between political correctness and absurdity.

1) University students voted to ban Canadian and American flags from 'inclusive space' for this bizarre reason

Canadian and American flags are no longer welcome at the University of California.

The Associated Students of University of California, Irvine (ASUCI) voted to ban flags from hanging in its main lobby – an 'inclusive space' – because they are "offensive."

 

According to the legislation, flags are “symbols of patriotism or weapons for nationalism.”


2) Germany bans pork sausages in schools to avoid offending Muslims

Germany continued to commit cultural suicide this year. A report suggested that sausages had been removed from public canteens to avoid causing offense to Muslims.

 

According to the IB Times, a regional branch of German Chancellor Angela Merkel's CDU party is fighting to keep pork sausages on the menu.


3) Beta male school principal bans Christmas, Valentine's and other holidays that “threaten the culture of tolerance”

Principal Scott Masini of Bruce Vento Elementary School sent a letter on a private Facebook page saying, “I have come to the difficult decision to discontinue the celebration of the dominant holidays until we can come to a better understanding of how the dominant view will suppress someone else’s view.”

The beta male continued, “One of the concerns that I have... is whether or not this practice is encroaching on the educational opportunities of others and threatening the culture of tolerance and respect for all.”

4) University of Ottawa bans free yoga class because of “cultural appropriation”

This is not an Onion article. Keep that in mind as you read. A free yoga class at the University of Ottawa was been banned by student leaders.

Yoga would eventually return to U of O, but with an Indian teacher replacing the white one they had for years.

5) University of Minnesota committee: making fun of terrorists 'compromises the cultural harmony of the campus'

Campus Reform reports that the Student Service Fees Committee cherrypicked a 2011 issue that pictured a man with a gun burning an issue of the Minnesota Republic with the words, “Terrorists hate the Minnesota Republic.”

 

The SSFC targeted SVC over this back issue saying, “While reviewing one of the sample publications, committee members came across material that demonstrated an overt lack of sensitivity to the portrayal of members of the Arab world.”

6) Muslim students continue jihad on 'American Sniper', yet another school cancels screening

Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute has decided to cancel its initial screening of American Sniper after the school's Muslim Students Association complained.

 In a message posted on Facebook by the Union Programs and Activities Committee Cinema (UPAC), the decision is explained.

7) Kindergarten teacher blocks boys from playing with Legos to promote 'gender equality' agenda

Washington Kindergarten teacher Karen Keller is forbidding her male students from playing with Legos during play time in order to encourage female students to use them. Despite the fact her female students rushed to play with dolls while boys rushed to Legos.

 

Keller told the Bainbridge Island Review that she even makes up excuses to fit her 'gender equality' agenda.

8) University bans chalk after 'offensive' pro-Trump messages trigger students

Overly politically correct DePaul University has gone full social justice warrior.

 

The school has banned students from chalking political messages on sidewalks after some students were offended by certain political messages the previous week.

 

Those messages included: “Make DePaul great again,” “Blue Lives Matter,” and “Trump Train 2016”.

9) A moment of silence for 9/11 victims is offensive to Muslims say University students

University students voted against a moment of silence for the victims of the 9/11 terrorist attacks because it would apparently cause “Islamophobia.”

 

According to The Daily Beast, students at the University of Minnesota killed a proposed moment of silence for 9/11 victims.

10) Real life PC Principal bans Santa, Thanksgiving and the Pledge of Allegiance

If you thought PC principal was just a South Park character, we have some bad news for you.

 

Principal Jaela Kim of PS 169 in Sunset Park, Brooklyn has earned the ire of many for banning many events and activities.

 

“We definitely can’t say Christmas, nothing with Christmas on it, nothing with Santa,” PTA President Mimi Ferrer said administrators told her. “No angels. We can’t even have a star because it can represent a religious system, like the Star of David.”

Dan, that was worth the read, great.

WE need to not shut up, and not avoid the conflict. This is what we have been doing, look where it has put us. The left what’s us to shut up, avoid the conflict, let’s all give them they what they want. It’s said what goes around comes around, time to make that happen.

LIBERALISM IS A MENTAL DISORDER!
Anybody that doesn’t see that, who lives on this planet today, is delusional – just like the liberals…
Please excuse the length, it’s worth its value as ammo:

“…‘The Liberal Mind’ is the first in-depth examination of the major political madness of our time: The radical left’s efforts to regulate the people from cradle to grave. To rescue us from our troubled lives, the liberal agenda recommends denial of personal responsibility, encourages self-pity and other-pity, fosters government dependency, promotes sexual indulgence, rationalizes violence, excuses financial obligation, justifies theft, ignores rudeness, prescribes complaining and blaming, denigrates marriage and the family, legalizes all abortion, defies religious and social tradition, declares inequality unjust, and rebels against the duties of citizenship. Through multiple entitlements to unearned goods, services and social status, the liberal politician promises to ensure everyone’s material welfare, provide for everyone’s healthcare, protect everyone’s self-esteem, correct everyone’s social and political disadvantage, educate every citizen, and eliminate all class distinctions. Radical liberalism thus assaults the foundations of civilized freedom. Given its irrational goals, coercive methods and historical failures, and given its perverse effects on character development, there can be no question of the radical agenda’s madness. Only an irrational agenda would advocate a systematic destruction of the foundations on which ordered liberty depends. Only an irrational man would want the state to run his life for him rather than create secure conditions in which he can run his own life. Only an irrational agenda would deliberately undermine the citizen’s growth to competence by having the state adopt him. Only irrational thinking would trade individual liberty for government coercion, sacrificing the pride of self-reliance for welfare dependency. Only a madman would look at a community of free people cooperating by choice and see a society of victims exploited by villains. [From The Liberal Mind; The Psychological Causes of Political Madness by Lyle H. Rossiter, Jr., MD]…”

The quick and dirty way to end many of these bizarre moves is to file a million dollar lawsuit against the school board who hired the person. Make them prove in court that the move is anything other than some
f*cked up personal preference. The obligation of the school boards is to educate to the demands of the majority of the public.
There are many lawyers that would be happy to take on a class action suit of behalf of parents .
My wife and I took on schools many times while our kids were growing up . One example was when one of my boys was in Grade 10 and a grade 12 kid decided to take him on in a fight. My son is very athletic and did Judo and played football as well. Even though he walked away from the confrontation , the other kid pursued him , goaded on by his friends. He hit my son with the first blow and my son responded with a severe beating . My son was suspended for fighting for two weeks as was the other boy. My son missed playing in 3 football games as a result . The other boy didn’t play sports . Even though he was two years older and instigated the fight ( a teacher admitted seeing him throw the first punch ) he received no more a punishment than my son. He is black.
I didn’t sue but I wrote a letter to the school board blasting the school for using my son for its political correctness move and I threatened to go to the newspaper. The Principal who lead this was “promoted” to another school the following year.
I advise parents to seek a legal remedy when some school decides to promote a social idea that is contrary to the wishes of the parents it is supposed to serve.

Do any of these people have brains or are they robots?
The educational system is corrupt and is simply causing chaos to society.
Where are the parents and why aren’t they doing something about this?
Everyone whines about these changes taking place, but no one does anything about it.
Who is paying the tuition for these kids?
Parents….protect your children from the brainwashing taking place.

I would like to see some more top ten lists. Maybe we can have one on the screw ups of the Alberta NDP?

Tell everyone you’re a Trump supporter and watch them go into a tizzy and hopefully off themselves.

Its this Political Correct/Progressive blatant stupidity in control. This is also the end of Western values and civilisation if it continues and remains unchallenged.

Small groups or individuals forcing their views upon the rest. It appears that our Western values and traditions, and social beliefs are secondary to possible offending of others who are foreign to our cultures. And so what if they are offended by our beliefs and traditions?

If someone from another part of the world comes here, I am sorry, but we do not have to bend over simply to make them comfortable. They chose to come here, so they must learn to accept our way of life. If Muslims do not like or take offence at, for example, a moment of silence for 9/11, our flags, our nationalism, our holidays and traditions, our way of life, our laws then they can leave. That simple. No different than a visitor coming into your house and telling you to change the way you live to their standards: you show them the door.

As for the PC teachers, principals and student bodies forcing their world view upon everyone else, the teachers and principals should be told where is the line in the sand and the limits of their authority, and the student bodies face rebellion by the majority of students on campus (as if there is dissension).

Its time we took back our world from the PC Progressives.

This would definitely stop future actions If we would quit allowing Liberal Privilege, bigotry, thus having it both ways.

Get rid of these limited employment liberal arts programs that no college would allow for such reasons.

In the same vein, apply the same zero tolerance standards to left-wing actions and groups as done towards right-wing. The Feminists don’t want Men centers and courses because they may attract misogynists, so eliminate these male bashing wimmins/wymyns center/courses same reasons.

Liberals love quotas, well require left-wing dominated universities to have hiring quotas for conservatives and treat any hatred against them because of their ideology as no different than hatred against e,g, race.

Liberals use the term racist in the same insensitive hateful manner as conservatives use the n-word, when used because you disagree with something, the r-word is just as hateful as the n-word

Marxist, Communist, Socialist, you name it, have been controlling our education system since at least the 1930s. Now, four or more generations on, we are seeing the results. University students that are fully qualified protesters, who really don’t know what they are protesting about.

These Oafs should all be given a Rifle and sent off to some hot spot, to fight a War and learn the facts of life. If they manage to survive and return home, they can then be sent back to University to learn their Multiplication Tables.

The World is going to hell in a basket.

They are losers. Absolute losers. Agree with everything they say or be called divisive. Who needs to behave like that except losers?

You know folks all of this is our fault. Why do we allow one individual with a Hitler complex to dictate what we should or shouldn’t do? If the majority wants Christmas, well we have Christmas. And so it goes. If you don’t like it STFU and go look for another job. After seeing all of this PC bullshit going on, especially on university campuses , I sometimes wonder if this is some CIA thought control experiment gone awry. The Manchurian candidate on steroids. Boys can’t play with Legos. Why do we allow this?

It seems the public education systems need to be a shaken up. Unions have totally destroyed our education systems, from kindergarten, to the finishing school for marxists, the universities. Maybe homeowners should all sell, and let the system crash.

@ 4 freedom, unfortunately the parents of these kids being indoctrinated in school are the same parents that voted in turdo and his hate laws being enacted and his protection of transgenders and gay and everything else under the sun that most normal people find abhorrent. so they are OK with the brain washing, all they thought about was the free goodies turdo would give them and his making pot legal,their priorities were not on how their kids get educated and thus so here we are no more Canada and canadian traditions

And I’m trying to remember the name of that public school in Toronto that removed all playground equipment for fear that one of the little creampuffs would get hurt… “Play” there consists of the kids having a three foot high hillock to run up and down, up and down, up and down…. Now ain’t that “Fun”? ….
commented 2016-05-26 17:03:23 -0400
All education institutions and programs, including “play school” all the way up to “universities”, are now predominantly social engineering and indoctrination centers for Marxist doctrines and political correctness. Parents/guardians must be vigilant for truth and ensure the children are taught these truths rather than rely on the rhetoric and dogmatism of fallacious sophistry proliferating learning institutions. If one makes it through the primary years without incurring too much damage, they would be best served to enroll in technical schools and programs to gain beneficial and meaningful real-world practical skills in order to avoid the mind control and brainwashing of other post-secondary institutions.

This is the result of George Soros and his so-called charities that pay professional protesters minimum wage to cause trouble and bicker over anything they can find.

Soros with worth billions and a few million goes a long way ( particularly when running craigslist ads or posts on reddit to round up bus loads of sheeple to stage phony events ).

This is one tactic Soros used to destabilized parts of Europe in the past.

Obama is Soros’ boy. Obama supports and promotes this crap – an activist lawyer that has run his course.

160 days to Trump-mas folks!!!! Thank goodness.
