Ending Bullying With Even More Bullying: Or is it Really About Attacking Dissent? UPDATED


We have frequently noted that one of the main goals of leftists is to silence dissent.  If they try to argue based on facts, they tend to fall flat on their faces.  So, the next best thing is to attack and discredit anyone that disagrees with them, attempting to silence them with wave after wave of ridicule, intimidation and abuse.  For the latest example, we need to look at the incredibly ironic, and excessively hypocritical efforts to end bullying.  While everyone would agree that actual bullying should be combated, it isn’t the real agenda, at least not for our leftist neighbors.  Instead, it is another flavor of political correctness/Cultural Marxism.  The mechanism is simple:  any disagreement with the leftist agenda is hate, and since bullying is hate, any dissent is therefore bullying.

For the latest example, kindly take a look at how an “anti-bullying crusader” treats Christians…

As many as 100 high school students walked out of a national journalism conference after an anti-bullying speaker began cursing, attacked the Bible and reportedly called those who refused to listen to his rant “pansy asses.”

The speaker was Dan Savage, founder of the “It Gets Better” project, an anti-bullying campaign that has reached more than 40 million viewers with contributors ranging from President Obama to Hollywood stars. Savage also writes a sex advice column called “Savage Love.”

Savage, and his husband, were also guests at the White House for President Obama’s 2011 LGBT Pride Month reception. He was also invited to a White House anti-bullying conference.

So, so to set the stage, this guy is a widely know, and apparently well respected (at least in lefty circles) “anti-bullying” expert.

Rick Tuttle, the journalism advisor for Sutter Union High School in California, was among several thousand people in the audience. He said they thought the speech was one thing – but it turned into something else.

“I thought this would be about anti-bullying,” Tuttle told Fox news. “It turned into a pointed attack on Christian beliefs.”

Tuttle said a number of his students were offended by Savage’s remarks – and some decided to leave the auditorium.

“It became hostile,” he said. “It felt hostile as we were sitting in the audience – especially towards Christians who espouse beliefs that he was literally taking on.”

So then, in an effort to end “bullying,” Mr. Savage thinks it perfectly appropriate to engage in some of his own, attacking people that disagree with his beliefs and behaviors.  Because, as we all know, attacking, deriding, and abusing people that disagree with any facet of the leftist platform is somehow not bullying?  Just like, disagreeing with the feminist agenda is a “war on women,” but the same critics that are incredibly abusive towards Conservative women are just fine?  Or, is it that any disagreement with Barak Obama is blatent racism, but attacking Herman Cain, or other Conservative blacks is par for the course?

I would submit that not only is such behavior hypocritical, it is also evil.  And, in fact, we were warned that this would happen…

John 15:21

 New American Standard Bible  (©1995) 
“But all these things they will do to you for My name’s sake, because they do not know the One who sent Me.

John 15:18

New American Standard Bible  (©1995) 
“If the world hates you, you know that it has hated Me before it hated you.

There is some good in this, because if you read the book, the good guys win in the end.  Also, be warned that it will get much worse before it gets better.  Or, to put in another way, the left is behaving just as predicted.

Update:  Stacey  McCain has video.

  • I saw the video of this fellow and all i can say is, what a bigoted ass! Deriding Christian students simply because of who they are. Shame on this bigot and all those who clapped for him.

    Good on those students, they did the right thing by walking out, that’s what you do to hate-filled bigots.

    I also read a good comment elsewhere that this bigot wouldn’t have the balls to say the same thing about islam. You know the religion where gutless wonders like him are hanged from cranes. Mind you if he did, muslims would probably lynch him there on the stage.

    Funny thing that this ignorant and ungrateful cur won’t get through his thick skull is that the only people who would defend him if that were to happen are the very Christians he derides and scorns.

  • Dan Savage has been slandering Rick Santorum for many years now. In addition, he has also sexually harassed him on a tv show, as well as extorted him to stop the slandering attacks, and also has been bullying him and other Christians… it is sick that Obama, Pelosi, Clinton, Google, Facebook and many others sponsor that sexual deviant, and support him, and enable him, instead of putting that wicked piece of poop in jail. That sick individual and all who support and sponsor him and his attacks on the youth of America to purposefully make them like him (homosexual and a hater of anything decent), will awaken one day in a fiery hell which they will never escape, if they do not repent of their sins and have God’s mercy, love and forgiveness reach them through Jesus Christ.
