Baltimore, General Poltroonery, Hoplophobia, Mark Steyn, Official Idiocy and Incompetence, Pop Tarts
Mark Steyn, on Rush Limbaugh’s Show yesterday, read, in the recent school suspension of a 7-year-old in Baltimore for allegedly nibbling his breakfast pop tart into a shape resembling a gun, serious bad news for American civilization.
Youâ€™re doomed America! Youâ€™re done for! No society can survive this level of stupidity! The school counselor is available to meet with any students who are traumatized by hearing reports of some guy four grades below them who nibbles a pop-tart into a gun-like shape.
Iâ€™ve never subscribed to this whole greatest generation thing, you know. But you look at those guys, they werenâ€™t much older than the kids from the school. A lot of them were like seventeen, eighteen years old. And theyâ€™re storming out of these transport ships in the churning waters of the English Channel and the North Sea and theyâ€™re landing on the beaches of Normandy. And their getting out of these and they stomping up the beaches and theyâ€™re taking German gunfire and all the rest.
Do you think if you raised people so that you make a school counselor to available to them in cased theyâ€™ve been traumatized by someone who was nibbled a pop-tart into the shape of a gunâ€¦.do you think if theyâ€™re ever called upon to get out those ships and the storm the beaches of Normandy, do you think theyâ€™re gonna be up to that?
â€˜Oh no look, the Germans, theyâ€™re all holding pop-tarts! AAAAAAAHHHHHHHH!â€™
No society can survive this level of stupidity! These small things are not small. They tell you a lot about the institutionalized stupidity of our institutions.
