Twitchy watches the assault sausage being made; video of the initial doubleplusgood planning meeting posted above.

And don’t even think about tossing an imaginary assault grenade onto the playground:

In the politically correct world we are now forced to live in, courtesy of the progressive left, a second-grade student at Mary Blair Elementary School in Loveland, Colo., has been suspended for throwing an “imaginary grenade.”

“The 7-year-old says he was trying to save the world. But school administrators say he broke a key rule during his pretend play,” KDVR-TV reported.

What is the key rule? No real or play fighting.

A decade ago, these sorts of articles were staples of the Drudge Report — except that they all came from England. (IngSoc, indeed.) The same sort of political correctness that transformed the UK from the nation with broad enough shoulders to win WWII to its current enfeebled state is now working its way through America.

Which in just a few years will be unrecognizable. Well, even more unrecognizable than it is today. As Steve Green writes at the Tatler, we’re doomed.
