Arrogant & Stupid – Not A Good Combination

Published by at 1:54 pm under All General Discussions

This story is just one more example of why government is running out ideas, gas and just plain brains:

Refusal will result in a Racial Discrimination note being attached to your child’s educational record…’

Of course this idiotic attempt at oppression is laughable on so many levels.  This note went out to parents of children who were not going to attend a field trip to an Islamic Center.

Islam is a religion, not a race. So you wonder about the fool behind this?

What is the single most depressing aspect of this letter? Is it the idea of labelling eight-year-olds racists? Is it the moronic conflation of religion and ethnicity? Is it the ugly grammar (“As such our expectations are that all children in years 4 to 6 attend school on Wednesday…”)? Is it the bullying tone? Is it the unconscionable choice of font? Is it that someone can write that way and yet hold a position of authority in a school?

Tax dollars ‘at work’.
