Right here in Ohio, there are crazy folks

'Shoot the president': School cancels assassination party game for kids after public outcry | 18 Feb 2019 | A college running a community arts center in Ohio was forced to stop advertising a party game where kids are instructed to 'eliminate' the president with toy guns, after it sparked national outrage. [If there was national outrage, I didn’t see it in Columbus.]  The game entitled 'President' had been advertised as a part of NERF gun-themed party organized by the Olmsted Performing Arts community center in Berea, a suburb of Cleveland. "There is one president with body guards. Everyone else tries to eliminate or shoot the president," read the description of the game on the center's website, since deleted.


There doesn’t seem to be evidence that Democrats in the arts center came up with this “game,” but I can’t imagine that Republicans did.

Baldwin Wallace acquired Olmsted Performing Arts on January 1, 2019.  Of course, an apology was issued to “anyone who was offended.” Here’s my suggestion for an apology:  “BW believes this game is offensive and dangerous, we’ve removed the staffer who planned it and we apologize to all, especially the president and his family.”
