  • I'm Sorry, They Really Are Insane...

    Liberalism really is a mental disorder!

    http://eastgreenwich.patch.com/group...s-honors-night

    EAST GREENWICH, R.I —Citing concerns about the "exclusive nature" of the annual honors night at Archie R. Cole Middle School, school officials have decided to scrap the tradition.

    Instead, students who would normally be recognized at the annual spring tradition will be honored during team-based recognition ceremonies and graduation.

    The notice was sent to parents over the weekend in an e-mail signed by School Principal Alexis Meyer and Assistant Principal Dan Seger.

    "Members of the school community have long expressed concerns related to the exclusive nature of Honors Night," the email stated.

      I can't wait till liberals decide that degrees are too exclusive and some people having them will make others feel left out.

        I don't get the addiction to liberal bashing, especially because most everybody would recognize the logical fallacies being used in any other contexts (hint: this has nothing to do with all liberals or any mental disorders).

          there is no addiction. You just have to read the news to see example upon example of idiots who are liberals. Not all liberals are idiots, but it sure seems like the stupid ones are in charge.

            Fortunately I don't think the truly insane ones have any real power. The "academic left" takes things to a whole different level. I could pull up some examples but there's some craziness out there. I'm sure Epo will link to them as part of his normal non sequitur posting soon anyway.

                But my broader point is OPs like this that call out individual examples of stupidity and paint them as normal for liberals are about as fair as if I were to start a thread about the Florida representative that said that Common Core was a liberal plot to turn kids gay, and act like it was representative of all conservatives.

                  Anyone who read the article would know that they are not getting rid of the tradition of honoring accomplishments on the parts of students; they are simply changing it. Drop the hysterics, seer.
                  Don't call it a comeback. It's a riposte.

                    no... And they certainly are down playing achievement...

                      So even you recognize that they're hysterics?

                        By having the recognition ceremonies during team-based ceremonies, it will "afford us the opportunity to celebrate the individual and collective success of all students and their effort, progress and excellence."
                        Right out of Marx!

                          Because in student athletics, the achievements of the best players are totally independent of the contributions of their teammates. If teaching middle-schoolers the importance of teamwork is Marxist, then may we all become Marxists.

                            How is the stupid crap in the OP any different from racial quotas? Or are you gonna tell me those aren't liberal either.

                              The point of giving honors is to reward people who stand out above and beyond the average individual's contribution. The mediocre players are already rewarded for their performance with victory.
