The Madness Continues

Yeah, we've gone off the deep end...

A school sent a little girl home with a note to her parents stating that the girl's lunch box was inappropriate for school because it was festooned with violent imagery...

And just what was this violent imagery that was so horrific as to warrant such fear that innocent school children would be psychologically scarred for life?  Was it Arnold Schwarzenegger's Terminator attempting to snuff the life out of Sarah Conner?  Or perhaps Anthony Hopkin's Hannibal Lecter having a late night snack of liver and chianti?  (I'm pretty sure it couldn't have been shots from the undercover Planned Parenthood videos).

No the image that prompted such immediate concern from school officials was Wonder Woman...  Yup, that's right -- Wonder Woman.

And my liberal friends -- who argued with me most strenuously about the need for controls on speech that can be seen as "micro-aggressions" (God, how I hate that term) -- are inexplicably surprised by this story.  

<Sigh>   Sometimes, it just doesn't pay to get out of bed and read the news.


  1. "And my liberal friends...are inexplicably surprised by this story."

    Perhaps. Or perhaps they're just mimicking surprise and have anticipated this sort of social fascist regime all along, but would prefer not to celebrate it openly.

    A wise man -- possibly Heinlein -- once said "Never attribute to malice what can be explained by stupidity." That maxim might have passed its sell-by date. There's a lot of palpable malice toward freedom and freedom-lovers out there.

  2. Whether Heinlein, Hanlon (see Hanlon's Razor), or some other notable author, most versions of that quote usually follow up with something along the lines of "But don't rule out malice."

    Indeed there is much malice directed towards those who think like us. And I, for one, am tired of it.... It seems that after every increasingly frequent horrific crime (that used to be a relatively rare event in days past), the liberal/progressives point their fingers at us and say "YOU need to change."
