TN: Parent banned from school for protecting his daughter from harm
January 28, 2014
White House,Tennessee: A city approximately 22 miles north of Nashville Tennessee, nestled below the Kentucky line is a Robertson County school system that by it’s actions, has once again brought national attention to it’s liberal policies.
A protective father has been banned from school property for allegedly protecting his daughter from harm as she exits the school for routine pick up.
Damon Holligan (father) observed his daughter strolling to her fathers vehicle as she has probably done many times before.
The casual stroll, observed by Holligan, turned violent for his daughter as he witnessed her being assaulted by a male child as she was exiting the secure confines of her elementary school on her way home.
A male child was grabbing his daughters arm and kicking her in the legs, according to reports.
Mr Holligan I am guessing instinctively reacted to these threats upon his daughters safety and exited his vehicle running to her side to protect her from further harm and securing the area.
The male perpetrator according to Mr Holligan ran away and was later confronted and asked why he would do such a thing to his daughter and demanded an apology.
Police reports state that Mr Holligan was the one that found the male child and asked for an apology but sadly now it’s his word against the schools and will more than likely be determined in a court of law.
Seems reasonable doesn’t it? A father seeing his daughter being abused, running to her side, stopping the assault, verbally confronting the person doing the assault and preventing further harm, right?
In a pre modern education era, this would have been the end of the discussion. Damon and his daughter would return home, the offender knowing he didn’t get away with the crime and all is well, right? Afraid not!
What happens next will blow you away and leave you scratching your head.
Two days after this event, the Principal Kathy Schwab reportedly responded by calling a meeting to discuss the events surrounding Damon and his daughter.
Principal Schwab notified the father that he could not again step on to school property.
“She immediately handed me a letter saying I was no longer allowed on the grounds of the school property until further notice because it was inappropriate for me to even say anything,” Holligan said.
He says the boy who kicked his daughter was never punished and no punishment has been reported in local media to date.
“She doesn’t understand why she’s the one who got physically assaulted and yet now her daddy can’t come to lunch with her,” Holligan said.
Mr Holligan left the impression he plans to sue stating that the school failed to enforce it’s own rules and policies which ended with the Principals verdict being tossed in the wrong direction.
BCN post assessment note:
Inside a liberal machine chocked full of indoctrination with Common Core type equality policies and reasoning lies an underlying vein of distorted equality for all, a judgement that leaves all on a level playing field although the rules of the school demand otherwise, the laws of nature and the consequences of an aggressive child are challenging the debate despite rationale calling for a differing and appropriate outcome.
The school inflicting a banning of a father from his daughters own school leaves one to question the effectiveness of policy intended to protect our children inside a public educational device.
A piecemeal socialist quilt of blind and partial justice, sprinkled with “a trophy for all” mentality is distorting our God given ability of the species to balance themselves with natural progression of the fittest, the best known law of nature given to us by our creator.
By progressive design, a vehicle inside our schools is rolling over into our social environment, overwhelming and perhaps is unintentionally leaving the stronger, more aggressive subject as the protected by liberal policy. More often than not this is leaving the victim wounded and the perpetrator the victor. With this determination and analysis neither ends up being protected.
The overwhelming conclusion is this, the victim, in this case, Damon Holligan and his child is left with numerous questions placed into a forced situation where their rights were overlooked by a Principal that yielded to political correctness instead of reasonable action calling for a balanced and just judgement.
The intent to protect the rights of his daughter and her father, who chose to rightfully protect his daughter are being overlooked and the privilege and will of the father to protect his child is being squelched.
We are staring at the newest most progressive version of education in America, in Tennessee, and it should concern every parent and citizen of this great state and nation.
We now have a government controlled indoctrination engine that is purring loudly and is saturating our children’s brains with socialistic
A system where parents and the school board have less and less say so in the decisions that affect our kids.
A system where parents input is no longer valued and its leaving bureaucrats with top down decision making to drive decisions that affect our children. We are no longer at an empasse where we are thinking this may happen, it is upon us now and is showing it’s ugly fangs.
We now have a system that breeds an environment of secularism, indoctrination and liberal left leaning policies controlled by our federal government.
I will be the first to say let the kids sort this out and allow peer pressure to flush bullies out with natural progression.
Before objectors attack and they will because exposure of the truth in any form brings out vitriolic emotions from the left, even to the point of sadistic and violent. With that said, I do not condone violence and practice that daily. I do believe God has given us the ability to recognize right and wrong and I also believe that certain repercussions and consequences accompany those decisions.
I also believe that long before a Principal is allowed to inflict his or her will on me or my child with their pre determined set of values allow me to inject this comment.
If two kids get into an argument, as in the old days, we used to allow them to sort it out individually where the offender ended up getting a strong message that the next time he or she decides to be the aggressor there will be a certain consequence and action rendered when you choose to bully or harm another child.
I am not advocating harm for harm but there used to be a system that took care of a bully and didn’t result in a father being banned from eating lunch with his daughter and the school granting the prepetrator a free pass because social justice and equality to all does not allow for a judgement of bad behavior because someone, although the guilty will be offended or his/her social structure may become disrupted.
I know at least 99 percent of my readers will see this point of view, the other one percent consider your self a part of the problem and not the solution.
The liberal left with the establishment of popular “anti bullying”, “anti violence”, “zero tolerance” and “social equality” policies have created a very litigious environment with the advent that we all should be treated the same regardless of the crime.
Little boys and girls, children of parents looking for equality under liberal banners have trapped the very children they untended to protect.
The children are now left at a disadvantage and powerless because every choice is somehow muted by indecision.
We live in a world where stiff policies often leave the victim and their protectors vulnerable to backlash from the equality police as parents/students, our children, assert their individual rights working within this rigid system of equality.
There is no system intact to protect the afflicted. The system that calls for equality presents a duality and an observance of punitive action for those asserting their inalienable rights inside a machine that favors the aggressor with liberal policies and judgement based on the fact that involvement and intervention somehow makes you a guilty party.
Our educational system is swaying too far to the left and is leaving children broken and confused.
P.S.- It is also interesting to note from the links below that the same school district that is rendering this “inequality” of justice upon it’s parents and students is the same system that is not allowing the 10 commandments to be displayed and the 5 Pillars of Islam with Jihad, Holy War upon Christians to be displayed upon it’s walls.
This Common Core exercise in “tolerance” and “equality” is acceptable for all except those being offended or sanitized.
Yes, this particular incident has nothing to do with Islam but the comparison is being made only to show the lack of disparity and annihilation of some people rights are diminishing inside a system that favors equality, banishing our civil liberties for a minority.
Inside a constitutional republic there should be equality and a sovereign balance. Sadly inside a democracy where the whims of a few are saddled with liberal alienation inside a communistic socialist system is emerging and the benefactor is the social trapping of the day, the parent protecting their child.

Post note: This post as with all my blogs are my opinion only. I base my opinion and expression on what I see happening all around me only a daily basis. These posts should be taken at face value and realize it is a culmination of many hours of research with every attempt to be factual, fair, without harm and accurate. With this said, although my opinion may vary from your opinion this does not make you wrong and me right or vica versa, it just means we have a differing view. Simply disagreeing with my point of view does not make the story untrue and unfactual. I usually dont edit my content or remove posts. I was asked recently to remove a mothers childs name and the school she attends from this blog entry. I was approached in a very nice and professional manner and because I am also a parent with school age children, I reviewed the content and saw that this was a reasonable request and I have granted this mothers wishes. She made a very good argument as to why select content should be removed. I apologize for any inconvenience my words may have caused. It was the best decision for all involved. This blog has been edited and re published for this reason. I learn and grow from worthy advice. Thanks and have a great day.
