Nanny State Ninny Award for November: Principal no “pal” to imaginative 6 year old

David MenziesMission Specialist

In the ongoing struggle against meddling malcontents, I present the dubious Nanny State Ninny award for November.

Take me out to the ball game but skip the peanuts if our November runners-up at Hamilton City Council follow through with one crazy and unpopular idea.

And as ridiculous as our runners-up are, they can’t hold a candle to our winner, who handed a three day suspension to a first grader who committed an imaginary "crime."

You can always count on a Nanny State Ninny to imagine a problem where none actually exists in the real world.

Attila – good for you for standing and defending your boys. More people need to do this, in spite of those flying monkeys that continue to cover for these brainwashing freaks. Keep documenting these occurrences and when you show up at parent teacher interviews, go early and pass around your story to other parents, and compare notes. This is the only way to expose the teachers and principles who are crossing the line, and should be charged and fired for interference based on their prejudices against the male gender. Some of these teachers are mentally disturbed, and the unions hide them. It seems that if you are in a union, then you are protected from the charges that people who are not teachers would face. Criminals giving criminals a free pass. It’s disgusting to say the least. And keep telling your boys that they have done nothing wrong.

I am not surprised by the action of this principal David. Let me explain. What this principal is doing is carrying out the wishes of violence against women organizations driven by women who want to control the behaviour and action of men. Males who they accuse are all capable of being violent towards women and children. They start the grooming of males early in school, as early as JK, Junior Kindergarten. There is one fundamental error, they do not apply the same rules to females who are just as capable of being violent.

Here are some examples of what I have observed and experienced with my own two boys at school.
1. My son was made to stand against the wall for 30 min at lunch recess. Why? Because he touched the top bar of the soccer goal. No, I am not making this up.
2. I was called in to speak with the principal who informed me that my son was NOT allowed to hug his girlfriend as they departed on their respective school buses.
3. My son was charged and arrested for an assault that never took place at school. Defending my son in Criminal Court I was afforded the entire non-vetted disclosure of facts. Therein I found perjured information produced by principal Carol Taggio available to the police. After struggling with the female Crown Attorney and female duty counsel who failed to protect the rights of my son, the charge was unconditionally withdrawn. The Crown Attorney stated, your son should not be here while the Judge noted in open court, “I could only wish more parents were as connected with their children as you.”
4. I appealed my son’s 30 day suspension where Carol Taggio continued to lie and deny her previous lies about my son. At this appeal were about 6 people plus the board lawyer. At school she, Carol Taggio, stated to me that my son meant no harm, while on her report and at the hearing she made my son out to be violent by her flawed personal biased opinion.
5. Days following the appeal, the Vice Principal, Janet McMillan falsely accused my son of cutting another student with a pair of scissors. She called the police and York CAS, Children’s Aid Society. This was in retaliation for my grueling cross examination of Principal Carol Taggio. CAS found the allegation to be a lie and the police did not investigate.
6. My two boys aged 6 and 8 at the time were unlawfully locked up by Principal Stephen Baber in his office for just under 2 hours. My youngest urinated and defecated in his pants, unable to get to the washroom, terrified. My oldest son contemplated breaking the window to get free and find me. Police investigated and swept the entire matter under the rug. Outraged the investigating detective threatened me at the police station. Debbie Baber is the immediate assistant to the Chief and the Sister In-Law of Stephen Baber. Video of this incident documented here.

You can view the horror of what I was dealing with having my son criminally charged in this 30 min video. I also uncovered that the arresting officer, Dameian Muirhead, is a very bad YRP cop, previously charged by the Chief for dereliction of duty. He has been reduced to desk duty without his gun at the collision reporting center in Richmond Hill.

As I describe my personal experiences David, of the abusive behaviour towards boys by school officials in a quest to quell and control normal boy behaviour and non existent male violence, boys end up at the short end of the stick they are being beaten with for absolutely no reason at all. Vilifying male children for pretend playing with a bow and arrow, drawing a gun, eating a piece of toast that happened to appear in the shape of a gun and otherwise deeming boys as predisposed to being violent based on gender alone is akin to the outlawed witch hunts humanity found to be wrong. The abuse of males at all levels continues and must be stopped.

That is unbelievable. If I was the father at that principle/parent meeting, I would’ve pointed an imaginary gun at my temple or slashed an imaginary knife across my throat as I glared at the buffoon across the desk. And was one of those agents in the “Get Smart” clip Fred Willard? That was hilarious! Since I live in Hamilton, I’m abundantly aware of the woman who is trying to restrict nuts everywhere. If she succeeds, our city council office will be void of councillors…even though they are already nutless. Can’t this woman just educate her child to be vigilant and scrutinize her surroundings to protect herself? Or maybe she can just post an agenda of where her child will be every minute of the day and we’ll do all the security work for her. Get a grip lady. I don’t know who’s worse: the mother trying to enforce restrictions on EVERYONE ELSE or the city council for actually considering this ban. Nuts indeed, Mr. Menzies.

This explains a great deal to me. It much easier to understand the fixation on imaginary “global Warming” now.

Oh come on, there are nuts here on the rebel.
commented 2015-11-30 19:59:30 -0500
There are very few institutions left that can be considered ‘nut free zones’ anymore. Perhaps THEREBEL.MEDIA.
commented 2015-11-30 19:03:57 -0500
They need to make our schools a “nut free” zone by firing assholes like that principal Crachiolo.
commented 2015-11-30 18:51:17 -0500
Too bad the nuts have to live among us and cost us money , if they did not effect me in any way i would enjoy watching them screw up the world.

I really wish the rebel staff would stop inserting video clips that are not directly related to the story into the videos. They take up time, and are not all that funny.

You could have just said the kid made a bow and arrow gesture, without having to post nerf commercials.
commented 2015-11-30 14:40:21 -0500
I am all for a country wide nut free zone. Just imagine, no Liberals, no ndp, no Islam. What a dream.
commented 2015-11-30 13:03:23 -0500
Ridiculous. I guess they think they can take away the biological fact that they are boys, too. Boys love to play these games, get dirty, explore, etc. I don’t think they should fight or bully, but sometimes they just need to be boys.

First off Dave let’s be frank about what we are talking about here. “Nanny statism” is too convoluted a term and not truthful of what we are seeing at petty-bureaucrat authority level. Nanny statism = Fabian styled social engineering – mass indoctrinating in cultural Marxism and conditioning in unquestioning subservience to abusive authority . Just so we’re on the same page here, let’s start calling a snake a snake when we see it. K? Nannystatism = abusive authoritarianism.

In all the cases you cite, the above draconian themes are active and obvious, almost as if those abusing authority had been using Orwell’s opus on despotic authoritarianism "1984"as a guide book to implement this vengeful administrative autocracy.
  • The tot punished for making bow and arrow gestures – well, David, we can’t have the slaves of the utopian state armed and vigilant against despotism, it must be conditioned out of them at an early age. The thought of self actuated armed resistance must be replaces with a conditioned simpering self-destructive pacifism – can’t have the hoi paloi challenging the autocrats in any way.
  • The Peanut allergy excuse for removing other’s freedoms – well that’s what creeping authoritarianism does Dave – seeks any excuse to remove the rights and freedoms of the majority by canonizing the “entitlements” of the lowest common denominator minority. Aside from that there is ample evidence the peanut allergy epidemic is state sponsored anyway so Big Brother gets a double whammy on this anti-liberty move of tyranny of the minority.

Re read 1984 again and tell me this is not a blue print for abusive authoritarianism we are seeing today.

If they want to ban Nuts, they should start at Hamilton City Council and with that Principal :) :) :) ❤️

Fear not if you cannot find a minority group to join, now if you have an allergy there is opportunity to feel victimized!
commented 2015-11-30 11:03:58 -0500
by the same thinking, shouldn’t everyone in Hamilton that has peanuts in their residence post a clear warning on the front door?
commented 2015-11-30 10:57:22 -0500
The Marxist state has exposed it self again! Decadent education system is succeeding as per posed through UN Agenda 21. Deprogram your kids everyday and speak out against all moronic city reps/nieghbors. Merry Christmas All.

Menzoid, you’re right about the ‘nut-free-zone’ being impossible, there are just too many lefty/progressives running around messing everything up…
commented 2015-11-30 08:59:14 -0500
Wonder if the Hamilton City council would consider banning alcohol sales if say a person of a certain religion couldn’t attend games due to the presents of said beverage or maybe requiring the burka to cover women up so Muslim men could attend games?
