Green Army Men Removed From Cupcakes At Michigan School
The classic toys which represent American WWII soldiers were deemed too insensitive.
Is anyone else as tired of this politically correct crap as I am?

School Confiscates Cupcakes Decorated with Toy Soldiers
A Michigan elementary school is defending its decision to confiscate a third-graders batch of homemade cupcakes because the birthday treats were decorated with plastic green Army soldiers.
Casey Fountain told Fox News that the principal of his son’s elementary school called the cupcakes “insensitive” — in light of the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut.
“It disgusted me,” he said. “It’s vile they lump true American heroes with psychopathic killers.”
Fountain’s wife made a batch of 30 chocolate cupcakes for their son Hunter’s classmates at Schall Elementary School in the town of Caro. The 9-year-old helped decorate the treats with plastic figurines representing World War Two soldiers.
The following morning Fountain said his wife delivered the cupcakes to the front office. The secretary complimented her on the decorations and then took the cakes to Hunter’s class.
“About 15 minutes later the school called my wife and told her the couldn’t serve the cupcakes because the soldiers had guns,” Fountain told Fox News. “My wife told them to remove the soldiers and serve the cupcakes anyway — and I believe she may have used more colorful language.”
The school complied and confiscated the soldiers — sending them home with Hunter in a bag.
God forbid the school use the toys as an informal moment to talk about World War II, American war heroes, history or even the long history of the toys in America. No, we have to take them away, lest someone use them as an opportunity to be offended.
What the hell has happened to this country?
