High school freaks out over Duck Dynasty shirt because it ‘implies violence’

 

School officials at Dinwiddie High School in small-town Virginia forced a
student to remove a Duck Dynasty t-shirt he had worn to school because they
deemed it threatening, reports local NBC affiliate
WWBT
.


 

The shirt shows Uncle Si, an old, bearded guy from the hugely popular A&E
television show Duck Dynasty, with his fist clenched. The shirt reads, in big
block letters: “I will hurt you physically and metaphysically.”


 

The boy’s mother, Edna-Jo Spain — sporting a sweet, yellow Duck Dynasty shirt
for her interview — was incensed about the decision.


 

“For this to be considered as a threat to the school, I just couldn’t
understand it,” she told WWBT. “Anybody that ever watches Duck Dynasty knows
that Si Robertson is famous for his little funny slogans and his jargons.”


 

Other little funny slogans which Uncle Si has uttered include “Your beard is
so hairy, even Dora can’t explore it” and “A redneck walkin’ into Bass Pro Shops
gets more excited than a 12 year old girl going to a Justin Beaver concert,” according a website dedicated to
Duck Dynasty quotes
.


 

Spain explained that school officials told her son, Hunter, that he could
either turn the shirt inside-out or go home for the rest of the day.


 

Hunter chose instead to ditch the shirt.


 

“I’m not gonna look stupid in front of all these young ladies in school, so I
decided to get a different t-shirt.”


 

Hunter also noted that he didn’t mean to offend anyone.


 

David Clark, the superintendent of Dinwiddie County Public Schools
superintendent, told WWBT in an email that he was worried that people who are
unfamiliar with the show might be frightened.


 

“If you are a Duck Dynasty fan you understand the meaning of the shirt,”
Clark wrote. “But if you haven’t watched Duck Dynasty you may question if the
shirt implies violence.”


 

“As a school division, we would like to keep our slogans on student shirts as
non-violent as possible,” he added in a phone call with a reporter.


 

Spain mentioned that her family planned to
go on a Duck Dynasty cruise this summer. Also, there is such a thing as a Duck Dynasty cruise.

Now they’re arresting people who complain about the Common Core

 

Now you cant even voice your opinion in a school board meeting :banghead: :banghead:  :banghead:  

 

A YouTube video went viral over the weekend showing a parent who got
violently arrested for expressing his frustrations about the implementation of
the Common Core at a public forum Thursday night in the suburbs of
Baltimore.


 

Somehow, Ellicott City parent Robert Small was then charged with assaulting a
police officer in the second degree, reports The Baltimore Sun.


 

Small stood up out of order during a question-and-answer forum held by the
Maryland State Department of Education. He interrupted Dallas Dance, the
Baltimore County School Superintendent. Small explained — calmly, though not
particularly fluidly — his belief that the Common Core lowers standards of
education for children in the district.


 

“You are not preparing them for Harvard,” he said.


 

The irate parent, who has a sixth-grader and a second-grader and in Howard
County, Md. schools, asserted that the new curriculum will only prepare students
for community college.


 

This fall, for the first time, 45 states and the District of Columbia have
begun implementing Common Core State Standards Initiative, which attempts to
standardize various K-12 curricula around the country.


 

Criticism of the Common Core has risen sharply. Opposition has brought
together conservatives who stand athwart a federal takeover of public education
and leftists who deplore ever-more standardized testing.


 

The plan for the question-and-answer forum was for attendees write their
questions down on pieces of paper. Then, Dance and the Maryland State
Superintendent of Schools, Lillian Lowery, would answer them.


 

After Small spoke for perhaps a few minutes, a security guard confronted him.
A police report alleges that Small tried to push the guard away when the guard
initially confronted him.


 

The video does not appear to show Small pushing the guard.


 

“Let’s go. Let’s go,” the security guard said.


 

“Let him ask his question,” someone yelled.


 

To audible gasps, the guard then pulled the 46-year-old father aggressively
in the direction of the aisle.


 

As the guarded escorted Small out of the forum, Small said “Don’t stand for
this. You are sitting here like cattle.” Then he asked, “Is this America?”


 

According to The Sun, Small was then handcuffed and forced to sit on the curb
outside until police showed up to take him to a local police station. He was
finally released around 3 a.m.


 

The charge against Small, second-degree assault of a police officer, carries
a maximum fine of $2,500 and a prison term of up to 10 years. Another charge,
disturbing a school operation, carries a $2,500 fine and six months in
prison.


 

“Look, I am being manhandled and shut down because I asked inconvenient
questions,” Small told The Sun on Friday. “Why won’t they allow an open forum
where there can be a debate? We are told to sit there and be lectured to about
how great Common Core is.”


 

Small added that he himself attended a community college before transferring
to the University of Maryland, College Park to finish his bachelor’s degree.

i don't really like the idea of any meeting like this where only written questions can be submitted then they decide what ones they will answer to

 

that is where the complaint should be 

 

i think they are going overboard on the charges

Male Dallas Zoo gorilla to get therapy for sexist attitude

 

DALLAS (Reuters) - A gregarious male gorilla at the Dallas Zoo will be sent
to South Carolina for therapy after he bit one female gorilla and sneered at
others, zoo officials said on Monday.


They said they have tried repeatedly to socialize him with the other
gorillas, particularly the females, in the hopes that he might get along and
even breed. Instead, he bit one female and sneered and nipped at others.
