Never be responsible for yourself or others! How schools teach dependence on the government and train good little sheeple.









This is one reason I couldn't teach anymore.  Our school policy was that "fighting"was never allowed, not even in self defense.  When I had playground duty I did not enforce this nonsense.  I stopped fights but I didn't turn in the kids who were defending themselves from bullies.  Teachers can't be everywhere.  I told some parents at parent teacher conferences that their kids needed to stop being such p****ies and stand up for themselves.  If they got suspended as a result , so what?  Big deal.

My brother remarried late in life and had a son when he was already in his fifties. As a former Marine and a retired cop, he did not buy the flower drum song.  He taught his son to stand up for himself. When his boy did, the school suspended him. My brother went to see the school principal, told him his boy had done exactly what he was supposed to do, and that he and his son were going fishing on the boat during the weeks suspension.  He laughed in the pompous prigs face.

But the avowed goal of many in the education hierarchy is the emasculation of males. By and large, this business in the video is how they do it.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE DATE: September 24th, 2015 MEDIA CONTACT: Alyssa Griffiths, Public Information Coordinator Huntington Beach, CA: On September 23rd, 2015, Huntington Beach High School leaders responded to an incident that occurred on campus during lunch. Shortly following this incident, a video of the event began circulating via various social media outlets.

Additionally, the school is working with local authorities to define the appropriate actions necessary once all of the information is collected. Huntington Beach High School firmly believes that all students are afforded an opportunity to learn in a safe and secure environment. Because of this, safety is the highest priority.

  1. I guess it is true. No good deed ever goes unpunished. The kid who decked the bully deserves better. And his parents deserve a pat on the back for raising a son who cares enough to step up to the plate to help one who was being hurt. We need more like him and fewer like the school officials.

    1. The kid was even braver than the video clip shows, because there's a longer clip on a New York Newspaper page that makes it clear all those other kids standing around were the lackies of the bully. So he waded into a hostile crowd to stop this. I went to the web page and the school is now saying "he wasn't removed from the team because he wasn't on the team roster this year." I wonder how long it took the principal to call the coach and make sure that was the case once the principal saw this video and realized people were going to know what happened? School administrators, by and large, are not admirable people. There's a saying in teaching, "those who can, teach. Those who can't, become administrators." There are some good principals, I worked for one, but in the main they are not people you would want living next door to you. They are often petty tyrants to those who work for them, and obsequious ass kissers to those they work for.

  2. Harry,

    This school system needs to re-look at the evidence. This young man came to the rescue of a blind teenager getting hit and not able to protect himself. Shame on this school!!!!

    1. If you have a zero tolerance policy, then the administrators can hide behind it, cry crocodile tears, and say "oh, dear me, if only we didn't have to suspend this young man but it's school policy." In reality, it's a hedge for individuals who have no stomach for making decisions of any kind, let alone decisions that might bring the opprobrium of their left wing superiors in the education department down on them.

  3. No good deed goes unpunished.

    The sad thing is that their policies do not stop the bullies, just those who'd try and defend the weak. My blood boils just thinking about it.


    I lasted 2 weeks teaching as a sub. They gave me all the trouble kids as I'm big and ugly looking. The kids didn't give me trouble, but the administration . . .

    1. That's essentially what did me in after three years. The "policy" was written by leftards in Atlanta. The local school district could have set their own, but they found the boiler plate version from the Department of Education to be a comforting thing because it removed all responsibility for decision making from them. There were no leaders in most of the schools, only career bureaucrats who had failed in the classroom and so made the crossover to administration. The irony was that these people who couldn't hack it in the classroom then took out their frustration on those that were teaching in the classroom.

      I did have one principal who was courageous and was a leader. If she had stayed on I might still be teaching today. But she bailed out, and the vice principal was a Janet Reno wannabe. It was too much. She got the principal slot and I left.

  4. Hey Harry,

    (captaincrunch)


    Yeah' kids are not allowed to fight. Part of the eurosocialism bullshit.

    Back when I was in high school about a million years ago. We would fight off campus after school. No video. No school personel and no cops. If the other guy did not show out of cowardice. The argument was settled. No one got badly beaten. When one guy had the other guy on the ground it was usually settled and clear who the winner was.

    The last fight I almost got into was years and years ago because this idiot was calling a friend of mine a 'fat boy'. There were five of them and five of us and the the pool table was between us.
    I looked at the idiot directly across the pool table from me and I already planned to throw my leather jacket on him (as a distraction) as I was planning on leaping over the pool table to deliver a beating. All five of us had an opponent picked out, then at the last second. One of the five guys across from us realized we were going to be trouble and offered to buy us a couple of pitchers of beer.

    We accepted and got an apology.

    That calmed us down, but I kinda wish I could thrown my leather jacket over the pool table at the other guy and leaped over the pool table like a screaming banshee and started to hit that guy in face. I remember the feeling of excitement, bloodlust. The primal urge to f*ck sh!t up (it would have been glorious to be a Viking, Spartan or a Scotsman with a sword, shield and a worthy opponent)

    The thought just popped into mind 'Harry that with all the violent movies, tv, video games and daily news of war oversea's. The young in our country may be less 'feminized' than we realize.
    The problem is that they are not allowed to fight and don't have the emotional resilience to allow them to carry through with the violence and know how to taper it
    off so no one really gets hurt. That and that they are not used to throwing punches or taking punches and shrugging off the pain. Someone gets hit, starts to bleed and everyone freaks out when its a minor or (very minor) injury.

    Humans are a very violent species. History has show that time and time again. Its impossible to color over our primal instincts.

    1. You can train the capacity for self defense out of many people. They just "comply and die." There are examples of it every day in the paper. One guy with a gun holds thirty people hostage and they all just go along with his program. I think it's not that all thirty are cowards, but they have been indoctrinated from the cradle with the philosophy that "someone" will come help. If no one does, they are completely at sea.

  5. I read that the school in Mercer Island will now not allow kids to play tag at recess so they have a save physical and emotional environment......whatever that means. They are not allowed to touch anybody. Glad my kids went to school in the 60's and were taught to stand up for themselves. We were always told to go fight our own battles. These kids nowadays are going to be no match for the muslim invaders.

    1. Feminism in education became a really corrosive influence in the 1970's, and has continued to be. Feminists don't want masculine men, because that kind of a male is threat to them. They like metrosexuals. There are a lot of left wing feminists in education, both in the state administration, the federal department of education,, and in the teaching profession itself. When I got my teaching degree, I had to take classes from a lesbian professor who had never taught a day in her life outside college. But she taught the people who would be going out into classrooms, how to teach elementary school students. I refused outright to go along with some of her teaching methodology, including "role playing" and I had a rough time in her classes. Vindictive doesn't begin to describe her antics. The schools today are good at turning out drones, but not much more.

  6. Believe it or not, there are still places in this country where you can send your kids to public school and not worry to much. I'm still in education after 18 years mostly because of where I live. The kids are actually nice country kids, and we almost never have bullying or fights. I suppose I have been lucky to have good principals as well. --Troy

    1. If you have a good principal with the moral courage to resist the moon bats at the district office, teaching can be rewarding. Unfortunately, those opportunities are few and far between. The only principal I had worth a damn got out of education and went into business.

  7. I've not seen this before. When our wee man gets a bit older James is going to take him boxing. I want my son to be able to defend himself and his sister. I also won't take any shit from school if he needs to defend himself. I'll be the first in front of the headteacher giving my son a high five and a good job for defending himself.

    1. If more parents would do that, the problem wouldn't be so all pervasive. Part of our problem here is that school administrators cast themselves as being patrician and treat everyone else with contempt. It's hard for a lot of the poorer, less well educated rural people here to stand up to them.
