Is it a good thing or a bad thing when you’re quoted in HuffPo?

HuffPo referenced me as “a blogger,” but I’m still in there in an article about yet another school that has gone after quite obvious toy guns:

Multiple conservative bloggers and news outlets have come out in opposition to the way the school handled the incident.

“In a sane world, if a teacher or school bus driver saw the little boy bring out his orange-tipped cap gun, the adult would have said, ‘Put that away, and if you bring it to school again, I’ll have to confiscate it,’” wrote a blogger on Mr. Conservative. “America’s public schools, though, are not sane, at least when it comes to toy guns.”

Interestingly, the five comments that are on the HuffPo article now all come out against the school, saying it went too far.  In other words, they agree with me. Hah!  I’m sure, though, that there’ll soon be hundreds of comments lambasting America’s gun culture and applauding a public school that’s doing its bit to undercut the Second Amendment.

    There is no such thing as bad publicity. Congratulations.

    Doug1943 is right.  And further comments are in agreement that the school acted inappropriately. 
    When they start attacking you, you’ll know you are having an even larger impact.

    These incidents share a common theme – a war against a symbol or thought.  In none of these incidents is there an iota of real threat or even mistaken threat of harm.  To the contrary, these public school employees’ use of state power has nothing to do with school safety.  As such, these incidents are an attack on guns as innately evil.  That could be cast as a collateral attack on the right to keep and bear arms.  As vastly overreaching as these state actors are in punishing the thought or symbol of guns, I wonder if they could be sued under sec. 1983. 


    I wonder if they could be sued under sec. 1983. 
    I don’t know what sec. 1983 is, but I know what 1984 means.

    You’re starting to live inside their heads, Book. I think HuffPo’s masters are looking worriedly over their shoulders: Could Mr. Conservative be the dreaded asteroid that Blessed Breitbart foretold that would smash their wonderful hermetically sealed world? Oh, the humanity!

    Wolf Howling, I suspect that part of it is just Liberal/Progs reveling in the exercise of power…over kids, of all things.

    The Left is not a political movement. It is, as always, a religious one.
    Their religion… is not about God however.
    The Left hates God not because they think you are hypocrites (although they do), but because you are taking believers away from their cult…
    Well, people don’t have to believe it if they don’t want to.
