Special snowflakes can’t handle getting their feelings hurt; Superintendent sends letter to parents calling for inclusion

One lesson they could have taught the children is how the First Amendment works. But we can’t have anyone’s feeeeeelings hurt.

Superintendent of Hurt Feelings

Superintendent of Hurt Feelings


Via KIRO TV: The superintendent of Highline Public Schools wrote a letter to families last week, calling for respect among students. Dr. Susan Enfield said she has received reports from staff around the district that students have been repeating language they heard from presidential candidates in the media. Click here to read the letter.
While Enfield said this language is not limited to statements by Donald Trump, she cited this example: “I did use one example in my letter, about a student seeing a ‘Trump Wins’ headline, and crying, thinking that he was going to be deported. … This is a young child. He doesn’t know. Somebody says ‘if this person gets elected, you will be deported.’ Now, obviously, that’s not accurate.”
In her letter, Enfield linked to a statement of solidarity, written by a student group called the International Rescue Committee at Highline High School. Among other things, the statement reads that students should not judge others, nor stereotype.
The club was started by Mohamed Mohamed, a student who left a Kenyan refugee camp to come to the United States. Mohamed said he has heard all kinds of language directed at Muslims like himself. “I heard somebody say that Muslims are terrorists. ‘If I see a Muslim, I’ll kill the Muslim person,’” he said he has heard. He has also heard people make comments derogatory to Hispanic students. He said he can trace this type of discourse to the timing of the presidential campaign season.
“You’re telling me, you’re going to build a wall? People are working so hard,” Mohamed said, referring to immigrants he knows who are working several jobs to survive. “I wish I could sit down with Donald Trump for like 5 minutes, because I have a lot to tell him.”
Enfield wrote a similar letter in The Seattle Times, which drew some criticism. But she told KIRO 7 she anticipated that when she decided to write it. “This is not, in my mind, a partisan issue. I am not asking people to take a stand, nor am I in any way trying to offend people’s political affiliations. … However, when I have children who are feeling frightened, who are feeling intimidated, I simply cannot stand by as the superintendent and a member of this community and say nothing,” she said.
Enfield said she had been tracking this issue for months, ever since she received a flurry of profane tweets from a group of Highline High School students in the fall. When those students were asked about cursing at the superintendent on social media, Enfield said one of them was emotional, “almost to the point of tears – and said, ‘we just didn’t know what else to do. And look in the news. Look at the people who get attention.’ That was the day that stopped me in my tracks and I realized, ‘Oh my gosh, those are the lessons our kids are taking away right now.'”

Face it lady, there are children who have no right to be in this country. Just like there are parents of these children who had no right bringing them here or giving birth to them here for the sole purpose of claiming the fraud “anchor baby birth right” nonsense. There are many who have no right to be here, just as we have some one in our white house who has no right to be there, and more who have no right lined up to compete to be the next fraud in office. That is a large part of why… Read more »

This is utter insanity. Either we define “law” or we devolve into chaos (a likely endgame). This wench should be tarred and feathered. She’s a “teacher”??? A teacher of what, exactly? Lawlessness? A teacher of “everything’s ok so long as it feels good”? NUTS! She should be shot, in my humble opinion. She’s taking what’s right and perverting it to what’s wrong. She should be crucified for influencing our kids to think “all is well if one thinks so”. Again; NUTS! She, and her minions, are ruining the futures of our kids, OUR KIDS, not theirs, OURS, by teaching them… Read more »

KJL and budfundi, great responses. It is a pity that this so-called teacher did not take this opportunity to do lessons in gov’t, civic duty, personal responsibility, etc. by teaching and discussing the 1st Admendment. Just another bleeding heart liberal who is ruining our country by encouraging lawlessness. To the muslim student, I say — ask yourself how many Jewish, Christians, Israelites, Latinos, Russians, white Europeans have set off suidicde bombs, dumped airplanes into the ocean, bombed a marathon, shot their co-workers in mass? Then tell me how peaceful over the last 1,400 years the ever-changing-names of this people group… Read more »

Are you a hasbara troll? Israel set off terrorism in the ME, for your information and as a matter of indisputable fact. It is to accomplish the Yinon Plan that Israel is both depopulating and Balkanizing its neighbors, while simultaneously causing the invasion of Europe and overwhelming of its social resources to destroy the Jews’ two thousand years’ enemy, Europe, using those displaced by these interminable, genocidal bloodbaths being undertaken for Israel to kill two birds with one stone, so to speak. And, what about the open-air prison camp in Gaza where the Palestinians, whose land Israel was for centuries,… Read more »

I’ve said this before and I’ll continue to say it: Every home has has a door. It’s not to keep people in but to keep the unwanted out.
The same applies to our nation – Either we have borders, and call ourselves a nation, or we don’t. THAT is the question!

I suppose such teacher’s are silent when armed tactical teams storm elementary school during the school day for their active shooter drills.
I suppose that’s excused because all races, religions, and socio-economic statuses are scared in the spirit of equality.

What a sneaky way to use children to attack people that have a different political opinion than she. Trying to gain sympathy saying “these are little children,” sorry, but I don’t buy the idea that little children are behind this. How many do you know even are aware of what is going on in the world and the elections? If there is any fear there, it was put there intentionally by someone with an agenda. She should call China and ask them if the Wall can work? Then she needs to call Mexico and ask the, what someone has to… Read more »

DEAR ANON—you are CLOSE to an ACTUAL “incident report” at my school. So, while I got a “ha-ha” out of this….it’s too REAL to be truly FUNNY to me. Instead…it’s so sad…. Recently the dance teacher set up her “tryouts” (dang well don’t KNOW why a middle school KID has to “try out” in order to be scheduled into an ELECTIVE on the “WHEEL”–meaning…everyone should have a chance to rotate IN and OUT of it for at least a 12 week period……so kids can KNOW by the time they register for HS whether or not they want to elect art,… Read more »

CalGirl . . . both of those scenarios are outrageous. The goofy dance teacher just wants trophy students to “shine” when her recitals are given. Why not let other kids, i.e. physically challenged, emotionally challenged also do the dance class–for Heaven’s sake it is just middle school . . . let them have some fun. I would wish that some parent would report this to the EEOC for investigation. As far as the little darling who thought she should be treated like a “treasure” but failed to get passing grades–that is an outrage to the teachers, and it cripples the… Read more »

very sad. Our society is collapsing. No resilience of character–actually no character! No God–just selfish little whinypants who think anything is justified in “getting even” because they’re “special.”
The Great Commandment taught us all to love God (Goodness, Beauty, Truth) first and foremost and to love our neighbor as ourselves (meaning no double standards).
That’s the only way order will be restored.
I don’t see it happening, but we must pray and never give up hope.
We each were given a sphere of influence. Let’s use it.

I agree! The Ten Commandments, AS WRITTEN, should be defended most vehemently. THEY are what kept society in line and THEY, and ONLY THEY, are what will bring it back into line. I have a little off-topic question for everyone: Have you noticed how people address others when speaking? It used to be “they and I” or “she and I”, placing one’s self last. Now it’s “me n my boys” or “me and them”. English be damned, it’s the context I’m referring to. People place themselves first and I find that it also reflects on their character, making themselves self-important.… Read more »

Which “real world” are we talking about here? The one that Glenn and I, obviously grew up in back in the stone ages? OR—the one where everyone gets a trophy or “first place” just for showing up…and $15 an hour for wiping tables & toilets at McDonalds—pretty MUCH up there with the daily rate for a substitute teacher who must pass mulitple tests and security levels and possess at the least, a BS degree—but most have an MS?????? Right now—this is the “real world” around here: Not only are small businesses dropping like flies due to over-regulation & Obamacare—but NOW,… Read more »

CalGirl . . . I always enjoy hearing from the front lines about teaching. I got a degree in Elementary Teaching, but when I got out of school–there was an over abundance of teachers, and I choose not to move away from my family in order to teach. I thank my lucky stars every day that I did not go into the classroom . . . I see that it is a battlefield, the teacher is at odds against the students, their parents, and the administration . . . who needs that kind of stress. God Bless you for stepping… Read more »

I see what is going on:
The Left wiggled and wormed sex education into the schools (no puns intended), and once the cancer metatastized, it took off.
The same is going on with the First Amendment.
“You cannot invade America. There will be an armed citizen behind every blade of grass.”
Not if every armed citizen is debauched and in a situational awareness coma, they won’t.

“Snowflakes” & “Cupcakes,” funny stuff! 🙂 This PC nonsense is so totally out of control it’s unbelievable! With that said, I wouldn’t want to see any little kid gripped with fear for any reason. However, coddling their fear will do them no good, at that moment, nor in the future, as they would always fall back into fear the next time, & on & on. So, as someone else said, it would have been a perfect time to TEACH THEM. Of course, Libs cannot TEACH because they are mentally diseased. 🙂 So the poor kids will suffer for it. I… Read more »
