In the latest episode of an over-active school board making an overtly PC move, a New Hampshire school district has banned the game of dodgeball for fears that it reinforces and leads to bullying.
As reported by the Eagle Tribune and other outlets, the Windham (N.H.) School Board voted 4-1 to outlaw dodgeball and nine other human target activities because it was concerned that the traditional game was reinforcing the exact behaviors that the school district was aiming to eliminate in its students.
We spend a lot of time making sure our kids are violence free, Windham superintendent Dr. Henry LaBranche told the Eagle Tribune.Here we have games where we use children as targets. That seems to be counter to what we are trying to accomplish with our anti-bullying campaign.
Though dodgeball can occasionally lead to some students being targeted for their lack of agility or other physical limitations, it seems harsh to claim that the pseudo sport is a petri dish for bullying. Rather, it is a continued embodiment of the dog-eat-dog ethos that was once embodied in all school sports.

From Skousen's "Naked Communist":
17. Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers' associations. Put the party line in textbooks.
41. Emphasize the need to raise children away from the negative influence of parents. Attribute prejudices, mental blocks and retarding of children to suppressive influence of parents.

Have you noticed that an African made the top four most wanted in Franklin County tonight? At the same time that liberals are banning all forms of aggression they bring in adult brute savages from African in the form of Refugee Programs. This is truly indicative that liberalism is a mental disorder, suicidal and a threat to civilization.

This sort of promotion of weakness is typical of liberal idealism. They make a culture weak and then invite in the criminal through refugee programs and transferring and confiscating wealth in every way imaginable.
