A rather horrible case of bullying was recorded, and ended up on a local newscast.  Take a look for yourself…

 

A student captured footage of a violent beating in a Mississippi high school cafeteria, and the mother of the victim, who has since pulled her children out of school, is now threatening to sue.

The mother, Rhonda Hughes, says her 13-year-old 7th grader suffered multiple bruises after being punched over and over again, WTVA reports.

“It makes you outraged and makes you sick at your stomach to watch the videos. You know, the school has a policy against bullying and violence, but if they’re not going to enforce it, it’s not worth the paper it’s printed on,” said Destiny’s mother, Rhonda Hughes.

This is not the first time Destiny has had issues with this bully, Hughes said. The teachers’ failure to intervene has forced her to withdraw her children, and she is pursuing legal action against the school for negligence.

I hope and pray these children are safe, and the bully herself gets help as well.  That needs to start with some sharp discipline that starts her on a process that leads to a bit more self awareness.

Apparently, one school’s basic guidelines for bullied kids amounts to STFU.  The Federalist Papers has more…

Another example of how school officials don’t always think clearly, and why you need to be vigilant and check up on what your children are learning at school!

Via The Blaze:

Fifth grade students at Zeman Elementary School in Lincoln, Neb., were recently sent home with a “flyer” outlining how they should handle bullies. The instructions were apparently deemed so ridiculous by parents that the school district quickly issued an apology and the “inaccurate information” was pulled.

That was after the nine “rules” for dealing with bullies went viral, of course.

Here are some of the more questionable ones:

• Rule #3 Do not be afraid.
• Rule #4: Do not verbally defend yourself.
• Rule #7: Do not tell on bullies.
• Rule #8: Don’t be a sore loser
• Rule #9: Learn to laugh at yourself and not get “hooked” by put-downs.

Here is the print version.

eysuwikmyh0ejieewmqy-620x315It is important to note that the school did retract these, but who in their right mind would approve something like this.

Imagine, if you will, that you are a kid, and that you are being bullied mercilessly in school.  Now, imagine that you went to the trouble to record evidence of the bullying, so you could take it to the school’s principal.  Because, surely the school will protect you once the evidence comes to light, right?

Then imagine that you face criminal charges for exposing it.

That’s exactly what happened to a special education student from, South Fayette High School, located in McDonald PA.   Here are some details as to what happened…

A South Fayette High School sophomore claims to have been bullied all year at his new school located in McDonald, Pennsylvania. In February, the student made an audio recording of one bullying incident during his special education math class. Instead of questioning the students whose voices were recorded, school administrators threatened to charge him with felony wiretapping before eventually agreeing to reduce the charge to disorderly conduct. On Wednesday, March 19, the student, whose name we have agreed to not include in this story, was found guilty of disorderly conduct by District Judge Maureen McGraw-Desmet.

The student and his mother, Shea Love, testified before the magistrate that the boy has been repeatedly shoved and tripped at school, and that a fellow student had even attempted to burn him with a cigarette lighter. The defendant is, according to school records, a well-behaved student with no history of disciplinary action. He was, however, previously diagnosed with a comprehension delay disorder, which is a slower processing speed for information than is normal, ADHD, and an anxiety disorder. He says the bullying treatment is especially harsh and academically disruptive during his special education math class, in which students with behavioral problems are also placed. On February 11, after doing research on several anti-bullying websites, he used his school approved personal iPad to make a seven-minute audio recording of his classroom experience. He played the recording at home for his mother. Outraged, Love, a former Air Force Morse code operator, transcribed the audio before calling school administrators.

Love says that upon fielding her complaint, Principal Scott Milburn called South Fayette Township police Lieutenant Robert Kurta to the school to interrogate her son in the presence of Associate Principal Aaron Skrbin and Dean of Students Joseph Silhanek. The defendant testified before Judge McGraw-Desmet that he was forced to play the audio for the group and then delete it. Love says by the time she arrived at the school, her son was surrounded by school officials and the police officer and was visibly distraught. She says

Principal Milburn advised her that her son was “facing felony wiretapping charges” because he made a recording in a place with an expectation of privacy, and that Officer Kurta agreed.

So in my humble opinion, these are the messages that this school is sending…

1.  Better make sure the evidence gets deleted before we look bad.

2.  Oh, and kid, STFU, get back to class, and take it!

3.  Oh, and bullies, keep up the good work, we’ve got you back.

4.  Let’s make sure no other kids get the bright idea of recording any potentially embarrassing events  in school.

Sarcasm aside, this school punished a bullied kid for  coming forward to report, with actual evidence, that he was being bullied.  And, does a public school being PUBLIC and all, have an expectation of privacy (outside of locker rooms or restrooms)?  Or, is that just to make sure that “what happens in school stays in school?”  Of course, the public school, being an agent of liberalism, has to punish dissent, because any evidence that the system isn’t working has to be covered up, and those that have it are to be punished.

Everything here is perfectly fine.  Nothing to see here.  Just move along…and STFU! After all, the fine folks at South Fayette High School said so!

#FreeKate Update: Social Justice Advocate Calls for Federal Charges, Supporters Get FOIA, and Are Strangely Silent

Share

I had not planned on another #FreeKate post so soon, but there have been two developments to note.  The first is unexpected.  I received an email regarding a letter written to the Attorney General for the Southern District of Florida, Wifredo A. Ferrer, asking that a federal investigation be started into the crimes of Kaitlyn Hunt.  Here is more…

Request for Federal Investigation in Kaitlyn Hunt Case Filed with United States Attorney for Southern Florida.

Honorable Wifredo A. Ferrer Asked to Review Evidence for Violation of Federal Law Regarding Transfer of Obscene Material to Minors.

Contact: Bill Simpson, 301-339-3338, ProtectChildrenFromPredators@Gmail.Com

MIAMI, Dec. 17, 2013 /Christian Newswire/ — A letter requesting the US Attorney for the Southern District of Florida to review the evidence in the State of Florida vs Kaitlyn Ashley Hunt (Case No. 31-2013-CF-000197-A) has been filed asking for an independent, thorough and transparent investigation into a series of presumptive federal sex crimes committed against a 14 year old female Florida resident residing in Indian River County.

Kaitlyn Hunt pleaded no contest to a series of five charges resulting from a sexual relationship she had with a minor child. The plea agreement included two felonies of interference with child custody (F.S. 787.03), two counts misdemeanor battery (F.S. 784.03(1)(B)), and misdemeanor contributing to the dependency of a child (F.S. 827.04(1)).

The child victim was illegally contacted thousands of times by the defendant, Ms. Hunt, even after two separate no contact orders had been filed with the court as condition of her release from custody. This contact was made in person, through third parties, and electronically through the use of an iPod and an application called FaceTime.

“The victim in this case was sexually violated multiple times by the defendant, and those violations continued for months, long after the initial arrest of Kaitlyn Hunt,” stated social justice activist, Bill Simpson.

“It is every parent’s worst nightmare their child would be groomed by an adult for an illegal sexual relationship, not to mention the first encounter occurred in a stall in the girl’s bathroom at a public school. We should not have to worry each day when we drop our children off at school whether or not they will be sexually assaulted in a bathroom during the course of the school day,” continued Mr. Simpson.

Here is the full text of Mr. Simpson’s letter…

 

US Attorney Ferrer Letter 12-17-13 Regarding Kaitlyn Hunt by Bill Simpson


Concerned individuals might want to contact the AG, and let him know that you support this.

In the second development, two #FreeKate supporters, Thomas Mix, and Rachel Carson Zerbe, obtained the same FOIA information that we had received last month.  They claimed that they were going to show how we, “cherry picked” the information to make Kaitlyn Hunt and crew look bad.  Tonight, they are silent.  After some rather poor attempts at lying, they claimed victim-hood, and stopped posting.

Funny thing; they couldn’t post a single, solitary, anything that contradicted the data in these posts…

#FreeKate Update: Hunt Family Claims Anti-gay Bias, Police Investigation Finds None-Kelley Hunt Smith Engages in it?

#FreeKate Update: Victim Tried to Break Off Relationship, Kaitlyn Hunt ‘Wouldn’t Let Her,’ Described to Have ‘Problem With Lying’

#FreeKate Update: New Information Proves that Kaitlyn Hunt Knew That Her Relationship was Illegal, and That She Was Warned to End it

In fact, they refused to post a single thing that would contradict these posts.  Frankly, they couldn’t.  They had the exact same thing that I had posted, so it could not have been contradicted.  Of course, they aren’t concerned with the truth.  They are only concerned with their hate for people that expose their lies, not to mention making it legal for adults to have sex with minors.

I’m sure that they’ll be back with a new twist on their typical lying and bullying tactics.

And, we’ll be here to cover it.  Exposing bullying tactics to the world helps limit their effectiveness.  What they’ve done to the Smiths, the blaming of the victim, the stalking (pretend or otherwise) against people that oppose their efforts to lie; all needs to be seen, discussed, and countered.  If not, more and more sexual abuse victims, their families, and supporters, will be victimized.

Let this be the case where decent people stood up to the bullies, and made the country safer for children.

Note:  The Conservative Hideout and it’s contributors do not recommend contacting any #FreeKate supporters.  I condemn any attempt to harass, “dox,” or otherwise harm another human being.  We deal in truth here, we’ll leave the lies and harassment to the #FreeKate supporters.  That will not, however, prevent us from exposing their lies and bully tactics.

The Strange Case of the Pretend #Freekate Stalkers

Alleged Sex Offender Kaitlyn Hunt in Court

It’s been really interesting to observe the #FreeKate supporters that are stalking Jeanette Runyon.  They have been ruthlessly using false reports in getting her banned from Twitter multiple times, yet they continue to do to Jeanette what they claim she does to them.  I covered this a couple months ago.

Here is the most interesting section…

c) Feigning victimhood: in the unlikely event of denial and counter-attack being insufficient, the bully feigns victimhood or feigns persecution by manipulating people through their emotions, especially guilt. This commonly takes the form of bursting into tears, which most people cannot handle.

Variations include indulgent self-pity, feigning indignation, pretending to be “devastated”, claiming they’re the one being bullied or harassed, claiming to be “deeply offended”, melodrama, martyrdom (“If it wasn’t for me…”) and a poor-me drama (“You don’t know how hard it is for me … blah blah blah …” and “I’m the one who always has to…”, “You think you’re having a hard time …”, “I’m the one being bullied…”).

Other tactics include manipulating people’s perceptions to portray themselves as the injured party and the target as the villain of the piece. Or presenting as a false victim. Sometimes the bully will suddenly claim to be suffering “stress” and go off on long-term sick leave, although no-one can quite establish why. Alleged ill-health can also be a useful vehicle for gaining attention and sympathy.

You see, #FreeKate supporters have lied about the case-from day one.  When they were caught lying about almost every aspect of the case, and exposed in their open efforts to legalize sex between adults and minors, they went on to attack the people stating the truth.  Then, when the people stating the truth were not silenced, and exposed the “katers” attempts to silence them, the #FreeKate supporters switched gears again, claiming to be victims themselves.

The Other McCain summarized their reaction well…

How dare you describe my attempts to intimidate you into silence!

And, as we covered back in November, the #FreeKate stalkers are still busy making sure that Jeanette is never allowed to quote them on Twitter again…

gloating over their lies being effective

This is NOT stalking, right?

So, as you can see, they are the tolerant victims of Jeanette’s “hate,” right?

Here is some background…

@JanaEschbach Interviews Smith Family Regarding #FreeKate Revelations, Supporters Still Trying Silence Truth Tellers

#FreeKate Supporters Continue to Lie in Order to Ban Those That Expose Them, Display Anti-Christian Hatred

#FreeKate Update: Supporters Lie to Censor Those That Quote Them-Shutuppery in Action!

In other words, they really don’t want anyone spreading facts about Kaitlyn hunt and the #FreeKate supporters out there.

So, here’s where it get’s curious.  @NicoleBonnet1, a #FreeKate supporter, started to claim that she had gone to Jeanette’s home state to “have people monitor her…”

nicole lie 1nicole lie 1This is NOT stalking, right?

This is NOT stalking, right?

Now, as you can see, she’s stating that she went to North Carolina, and actually met with people that know Jeanette.  However, there is one problem with that…

No one in North Carolina seems to remember meeting her, or him, or whatever she claims to be.

priest calls nicole liarSo then, no one in her church or community has heard of anything that @NicoleBonnet1 has posted.  When the local PD was approached about “monitoring,” or even having heard of this, they laughed.  It’s also interesting to point out that @NicoleBonnet1‘s typo, “applaud,” seems to be the most true thing in any of these screencaps.  The people that have responded are most favorable of Jeanette.

But, they weren’t done there, Jeanette’s husband, a disabled veteran, was also targeted…

tracking hubbyOh, and by the way, no one seems to have received these mythical DVD’s either…

katie harassing hubAccording to Jeanette, her husband was never arrested. 

And, not only have they gone after Jeanette, for exposing their lies, and support for legalizing adult-minor sex, they even went after Jana Eschbach, a reporter for CBS 12 that interviewed the Smiths, and had obtained the same information that we had in our FOIA.

Jana Eschbach (JanaEschbach) on Twitter - 2013-11-27_23.11.11Twitter _ Truebie2013_ @JanaEschbach Maybe they want ... - 2013-12-01_10.11.09Half truths, like Kaitlyn Hunt’s own words?

Thomas (Periabo) on Twitter - 2013-12-16_12.25.35Actually, Thomas Mix is lying. I never communicated with Ms. Eschbach until after her report.  She simply obtained the same legal information that we did.  You know, when one person gets the information from a legal source, and another person get’s the the same information from the same legal source, they will say the exact same thing?  But, we can’t expect Thomas Mix to tell the truth, can we?

In other words, @NicoleBonnet1 is a liar.  And, the other @FreeKate supporters like Thomas Mix, Rachael Carson Zerbe, and others are already confirmed liars, or very foolish for believing @NicoleBonnet1.  But, then again, since they have lied about the case of Kaitlyn Hunt, and openly have the desire to make adult-minor sex legal and safe for sex offenders, I guess you can’t expect too much in terms of moral or ethical behavior.

Thomas Mix has an odd sense of “victory.”

mix reaction to being pointed out.Mr. Mix, there is no meltdown.  We’re not only calm, we’re laughing.  We’re just systematically pointing out to the world that you, and your associates, are liars.  The entire planet is now aware of that.  The internet is forever. All the lies, and the stalking, pretend or otherwise, cannot change that.

Remember this, Thomas Mix, regarding the false claim that Jeanette was a convicted felon?

they don't care if its true

“She must think I care if it’s true or not.”

Yeah, you’re the trusted source of information now, aren’t you Thomas Mix?  You haven’t cared about anything being true or not, have you?

So then, what’s the point of all of this?  There are several.

1.  The #FreeKate supporters, in their efforts to engage in shutuppery, are only drawing more attention to themselves.  They are blissfully unaware of the Streisand Effect.

2.  Since they are engaging in standard liberal intimidation tactics, a Conservative blogger is almost obligated to point it out.  The more these tactics are exposed, the less effective they are.

3.  Since we have exposed Kaitlyn Hunt as a liar, and Kelley Hunt Smith for opposing homosexuality before she was for it, and that Detective Shepherd found no anti-gay bias in his investigation, and that Kaitlyn Hunt used threats to control her victim, the #FreeKate supporters have to smear the woman that filled out the paperwork .  In other words, it’s a rousing game of Accuse the Accusers.  They can’t counter, or disprove a single fact that was included in the FOIA the we acquired regarding Kaitlyn Hunt.  So, they have to lie.  And guess what? They are going to continue lying-because that is what liars do.

4.  They are really poor liars.  And for IRL stalking, they failed miserably.

In the end, the only reason that I’m still covering this story is that the supporters keep lying and stalking people.  Or pretending to stalk people, or something like that.  Their lies and actions are keeping this story alive.  They make themselves newsworthy by harassing others, but then complain when that is pointed out.

And, we’ll be right here to continue displaying it for the world to see.

Oh, and how’s that bullying working out for you?

Note:  The Conservative Hideout and it’s contributors do not recommend contacting any of these people.  I condemn any attempt to harass, “dox,” or otherwise harm another human being.  We deal in truth here, we’ll leave the lies and harassment to the #FreeKate supporters.  That will not, however, prevent us from exposing their lies and bully tactics.

Are Anti-Bullying Programs Backfiring?

Share

Bullying is considered to be one of the most significant problems in our schools.  I can see that, and I don’t really disagree.  I would say that the leftist indoctrination is far worse, but that is a post for another day. After months of covering #FreeKate, I now know more about bullying than I ever cared to.  From the death threats, the threats to “ruin people professionally,” the “digging up of “dirt,” on law enforcement personnel, as well as the victim’s mother, the simple insults and false claims about critics,  to the “doxing” of people that state the truth about the case, the Hunts and their supporters have raised the bar in terms of bullying the family of a sexual abuse victim, and nearly anyone who stands up to their lies.   They are a case-study in online bullying.  Of course, as consummate on line bullies, they will claim to be the victims whenever they are caught.

So then, schools have been spending tons of money on anti-bullying programs.  However, the question arises, do the programs work?  If we are to believe the following, the answer is a resounding, “no!”

But a University of Texas researcher found that anti-bullying programs increase bullying, and “actually teach students different bullying techniques — and even educate about new ways to bully” classmates:

A lot of schools spend countless hours trying to stop bullying. But . . . University of Texas at Arlington criminologist Seokjin Jeong analyzed data collected from 7,000 students from all 50 states.

He thought the results would be predictable and would show that anti-bullying programs curb bullying. Instead — he found the opposite.

Jeong said it was, “A very disappointing and a very surprising thing. Our anti-bullying programs, either intervention or prevention does not work.”

The study concluded that students at schools with anti-bullying programs might actually be more likely to become a victim of bullying. It also found that students at schools with no bullying programs were less likely to become victims.

The results were stunning for Jeong. “Usually people expect an anti-bullying program to have some impact — some positive impact.”

The student videos used in many campaigns show examples of bullying and how to intervene. But Jeong says they may actually teach students different bullying techniques — and even educate about new ways to bully through social media and texting.

Jeong said students with ill intentions “…are able to learn, there are new techniques [and gain] new skills.” He says students might see examples in videos and then want to try it.

According to Jeong, some programs even teach students how to bully without leaving evidence behind.

 Broad anti-bullying rules can backfire and be harmful to child development. As a school administrator noted after passage of New Jersey’s bureaucratically rigid anti-bullying law, “The anti-bullying law also may not be appropriate for our youngest students, such as kindergartners who are just learning how to socialize with their peers. Previously, name-calling or shoving on the playground could be handled on the spot as a teachable moment, with the teacher reinforcing the appropriate behavior. That’s no longer the case. Now it has to be documented, reviewed and resolved by everyone from the teacher to the anti-bullying specialist, principal, superintendent and local board of education.”

Frankly, I can see this being true.  We know that Head Start has never shown a statistical difference in school achievement past third grade.  DARE has never been shown to decrease alcohol or drug use by teens.  If it’s a bureaucratic and top-down program, it will likely fail, if not make things worse.  To invoke Quinn’s Law…

Liberalism generates the exact opposite of it’s stated intent.

Do I know the real solution?  I don’t know that there is a blanket one.  I think that if school personnel take the time to watch for it, punish misbehavior, reward good behavior, and try to derail nasty behaviors whenever they occur, they stand a far better chance of turning things around.  In other words, let the professionals be professionals, and hold them up as examples, or hold them responsible.  This is a fight that is won in the classroom, not in a legislature.

Online Bullying: TwitterGate Revisited

Share

In my ongoing look at online bullying, I would be remiss if I did not revisit what I think was one of the most egregious examples.  TwitterGate was reportedly an invention of Democratic activist/consultant Neal Rauhauser.  What they did, was an organized and concerted attack on Tea Party leaders and members.  In fact, I would say that it went beyond attack, to terror.  Here are some screencaps…

PPST attack bigot gwlPPST THREAT methadonnaTwitterGate9TwitterGate10TwitterGate11There was a video that chronicled more of this, all equally vile, if not worse.  Many times, people were offered the option of terminating their Twitter accounts in exchange for ending harassment.  Sadly, this video no longer exists.

In a similar vein, I received the following comment, responding to the post, Shutuppery and You, Why the Left Wants to Silence You, Plus #FreeKate Relevancy.

Shutuppery and You, Why the Left Wants to Silence You, Plus #FreeKate Relevancy - Conservative Hideout 2.0 - 2013-09-23_13.00.02 I cannot stress enough that these tactics are never acceptable.  There is never a reason to do this, especially if you can argue from the point of truth.  Political speech has always divided, and in this day and age, we are divided like never before.   And, with so many unethical people operating in the open, political speech exposes people to threats and terror.  However, the truth still wins in the end.  TwitterGate was meant to derail the Tea Party.  Instead, we won the House in the 2010 midterm, and ended the Democrats veto proof majority in the Senate.  Like countless other bloggers, I’ve been blogging about ObamaCare since it was proposed.  We have been called innumerable names.  Baseless accusations have been hurled, and we’ve been disparaged.  The result?  A significant majority of Americans, in spite of the MSM mostly refusing to cover it, now see that ObamaCare is the disaster that we said it would be since day one.  If you hold on-if you keep pressing-the truth still wins the day.

Why do you think that bullies resort to such tactics?  To prevent the truth from being discussed.

So, they will threaten to report you to the police for quoting them.  They will threaten someone’s career, or organize boycotts of their business.  They might threaten your children, or your own life.  They don’t want people to speak out.  They believe that free speech belongs to them, and them only.  Resist them, and resist the temptation to become like them.  If you sink to their level, you are no better than they are.

#FreeKate #KatesFight Update: Law Enforcement Involvement and the Consequences of Standing up to Bullies

Share

“All tyranny needs to gain a foothold is for people of good conscience to remain silent.”

Edmund Burke

First off, I’d like to apologize for being cryptic the other day.  I really do hate when people do that, particularly bloggers.  However, here is where I explain what I’ve been up to, and how that applies to #FreeKate, now #KatesFight.

As I have been indicating on Twitter, sources have been coming to me with the inner workings of #FreeKate, including their admins.  I had been posting screencaptures of those, and will continue to do so.  In fact, I still have tremendous amounts of information that I have not had the opportunity to read fully, which explains my decreased posting.   I have also been given information regarding the potential misuse of money obtained in the fundraising efforts of #FreeKate.  Consequently, the IRC Sheriff’s office was notified that I held potential evidence, and they reached out to me.  After phone and email communications with their office, I have forwarded information to them.  I do not know at the time of this writing how useful that information will be, but I gladly sent it along, and, I will likely send even more, as it becomes available.

I did that, and openly state it, with the full recognition that it will result in retaliation from the #FreeKate or #KatesFight crowd.  Much of my recent coverage of that movement has been in comparison to other liberal movements that use Alinsky tactics to silence, smear, or otherwise punish anyone who exposes them, or even disagrees with their narrative.  So far, they have performed as predicted.  And, I project that they will continue to do so.

So, why all this then?  Why go over all of this?  Too many times, good, well meaning people are punished into silence by regressive tactics.  Businesses are forced to close.  People are bullied and intimidated.  Some are terrorized in their own homes and business.  All because #FreeKate or #KatesFight, like other liberal entities, use bully/mob tactics to silence dissent, as they can’t withstand it.  With all of the lies told by the Hunt family and their supporters, they HAVE to threaten and silence people that mention the truth.  Their cause collapses in the face of facts (an upcoming post will expand on that). As for myself, not only have I stated the facts of the case, I have supplied law enforcement with potential evidence.   That means that they likely will have to redouble any efforts against me, as they don’t want others to come forward and hand over their evidence to the police as well.  In other words, they might try and make an “example” out of me.

I know that there are people that are holding even more evidence against the Hunts, but are in fear for their personal safety.  I have relayed that fact to the IRC Sheriff’s office as well (I have not given them names).  I hope that by making a public stand, and weathering whatever nonsense comes my way, that the others will come forward as well.  It only takes a few people to make a stand, and others answer the call to get involved.

Another, and perhaps more personally, I have little room for bullies in my world,  I have spent years of my life advocating for bullied teens.  When I see how the #FreeKate movement has treated the Smith family, blaming them and their minor daughter for behavior of an adult, I am alarmed.  When I see that they dig up “dirt” on their victim’s mother, the detective investigating the case, and people that expose their lies, I recognize their Alinsky tactics.  And, if we continue to allow these tactics to work, they will continue to be used-not just by #FreeKate, but by other entities as well.  The fact of the matter is that if enough people stand up to the bullies, their tactics will not longer work.

So, I will stand against the lies, the threats, and the thug tactics.  I refuse to be silenced, and give the bullies of the world an easy win.  I am not a victim, nor will I allow myself to be one.  For every tactic that is used against me, there will be a post explaining it.  I will display their activities to all who want to read it.  I will not advocate violence, or encourage others to engage in it.  The truth is the sharpest sword, and that will be my “weapon” of choice.   The world needs to know what their tactics are about, and why people use them.  It’s actually an incredible opportunity to expose leftist bullying tactics to the greater world.  So then, #FreeKate, or #KatesFight, or whatever you’re calling yourselves these days; do your worst.  I’m not going to lay down, and I’m going to document every dirty move you make.  I am not your typical target.  I know your tactics.   I will not cower.  I will not be goaded into stupid threats and counter-threats.   I will not be silenced.

Great Moments in Civil Discourse: Gays Insult, Make Death Threats Against a 14 Year-old Sarah Crank

Share

civility

In the name of tolerance and diversity, large numbers of regressives threatened the life of a 14 year-old girl named Sarah Crank.  Her crime? Not agreeing with regressive attempts to destroy marriage.  Here is her testimony…

Here is a video highlighting the situation…

Here is some additional coverage from Life Site News.

After audio of her uncharacteristically mature testimony was posted on YouTube, the story went viral on homosexual activist websites—and death threats quickly followed.

TFP Student Action, a Roman Catholic organization dedicated to traditional morality, recorded several of the most offensive threats in a press release. A commenter on the YouTube video wrote, “If I ever see this girl, I will kill her. That’s a promise.”

Other YouTube comments ranged from, “Her parents should be exterminated,” to, “Kill this child and his [sic] parent, for my 11 birthday would be a wonderful gift, thanks.”

A comment posted on LGBTNation.com said, ““And now everyone knows her name, so hopefully she will feel what its like to be harassed and bullied…” 

Since TFP issued its press release, the comments have not moderated. Supporters of same-sex “marriage” continue to wish violence, sexual assault, or censorship upon the girl. (Warning, profanity):

  • I hope you get raped by your married parents.—madisonen;

  • Stupid bi**h – I hope you die on your Bday!!!!!—geminiboi007;

  • A dumb way for a dumb bi**h to do dumb things. Stop talking nonsense that your Christian, Anti-Gay parents are force-feeding you through a thin straw, and learn to accept other people. Now shut up bi**h, before I smack you.—123adbnvcs;

The original video of Sarah’s testimony, death threats included, has been scrubbed from YouTube.

You’ve seen what was said and done.  Herre’s what we can surmise…

1.  They gay rights crowd says they hate bullying.
2.  The gay rights crowd says they want tolerance.

3.  the gay rights crowd  threatens to kill people that disagree with them.

If you are seeiung the obvious disconnect there, you are not alone. As I’ve pointed out before, regressives always scream about tolerance, and decry bullying, yet they are the most intolerant people on earth, and eagerly and enthusiastically bully anyone who dares to take a point of view that opposes their own.

I also find it interesting how they single out Christians for their wrath.  In Muslim countries, homosexuals are tortured, jailed, and even put to death.  Muslims call for Shariah law here in the US, that would kill gays, yet, I see no protests or death threats against that religion.  I wonder why?

Student Sues School for Bullying: Was Abused and Threatened After Wearing Romney/Ryan Shirt to Class

Share

hypocrite

For all of the talk about bullying, Conservatives get left out of the mix.  For the proof, take a look at this video, via Gateway Pundit…

See, bullying is bad, unless you belong to the following “categories”…

1.  Conservatives

2.  Christians

3.  Jews

4.  Tea Party members

5.  NRA members

You see, “anti-bullying measures” are meant to protect liberals from dissent (yes, they might protect some poor kids from general abuse-at least while someone is actually looking, but that is another story).  Anyone who disagrees with the regressive agenda are still subject to discrimination, abuse, death threats, violence, and the like. After all, Saul Alinsky was the master bully, and they left isn’t about to throw out that playbook.

Teacher Caught on Video Assaulting a Student: Get’s to His Job

Share

What happens when a teacher is caught on video assaulting a student?  He gets to keep his job!  Here is the video…

Here is the information from the video…

The Pierce County Sheriff’s Department said Wednesday it is investigating a complaint of an alleged bullying incident, caught on video, involving a student at Kopachuk Middle School in Gig Harbor in February.

The department said it was contacted July 30 by a lawyer representing the parents of the student who was concerned that her clients’ 13-year-old son had been the victim of a bullying incident and that “the incident appeared to be abuse.”

Might it be that the teacher’s union is so powerful, that this man cannot be fired?  I don’t know of many places where you can be charged with teaching and protecting children, and then abuse children, and still not be fired.  But, I guess that is par for the course anymore.

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

Share

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.

“Tolerance and Diversity” on Display: Biblical Stance on Homosexuality Bullying?

Share

Ah, the left.  They live in a land of duckies and bunnies, with unicorns that fart rainbows.  And, if you ask them, they are by far the most tolerant, diverse, and loving people in all of the world…unless, that is, you disagree with them.  For those that have a different point of view, or have the audacity to engage in dissent, all pretenses of “tolerance” disappears.  Dissenters are ridiculed, accused, accosted, punished, and sometimes physically attacked.  For, you see, tolerance is a one way street for our liberal friends.  For the latest example of this “tolerance,” we have to look at the story of a student that based an op-ed on, of all things, the Bible! 

A 15-year-old Wisconsin boy who wrote an op-ed opposing gay adoptions was censored, threatened with suspension and called ignorant by the superintendent of the Shawano School District, according to an attorney representing the child.

Wegner, a student at Shawano High School, was asked to write an op-ed for the school newspaper about whether gays should be allowed to adopt. Wegner, who is a Christian, wrote in opposition. Another student wrote in favor of allowing gays to adopt.

Wegner used Bible passages to defend his argument, including Scripture that called homosexuality a sin.

After the op-ed was published, a gay couple whose child attend s the high school, complained.

The school immediately issued an apology – stating Wegner’s opinion was a “form of bullying and disrespect.”

“Offensive articles cultivating a negative environment of disrespect are not appropriate or condoned by the Shawano School District,” the statement read. “We sincerely apologize to anyone we may have offended and are taking steps to prevent items of this nature from happening in the future.”

So, the student writes an op-ed, in what seems to be a point-counterpoint format, with another student.  That might have been OK, but the student had the nerve to disagree with liberal doctrine.  But, what the school then allegedly did was more outrageous…

But Staver said what the school system did next was absolutely outrageous. He said the 15-year-old was ordered to the superintendent’s office where he was subjected to hours of meetings and was accused of violating the school’s bullying policy.

“The superintendent called him ignorant and said he had the power to suspend him,” Staver said. “He’s using his position to bully this student. This is absolutely the epitome of intolerance.”

Staver said the boy’s parents were never notified.

At one point, Staver said the superintendent gave him a chance to say he regretted writing the column.

“When Mr. Wegner stated that he did not regret writing it, and that he stood behind his beliefs, Superintendent Carlson told him that he ‘had got to be one of the most ignorant kids to try to argue with him about this topic,’” Staver said.

At that point, Staver said the superintendent told the boy that “we have the power to suspend you if we want to.”

The superintendent allegedly told Wegner that he was personally offended by Wegner’s column.

So, it appears that the kid was removed, taken to the superintendent, to “convince” him to apologize for his position.  In actuality, it appears that the school tried to bully the kid for taking a biblical stance on a social issue.  This is a familiar pattern:  liberals decided that they are infallible, and any disagreement with them is “hate.”  Then, once someone engages in “hate,” liberals can engage in real hate to punish the dissenter.  It is yet another manifestation of the leftist tendency to control, subjugate, and otherwise engage in tyranny.  In this case, over thought itself.

We also now have to add that anti-bullying rules at schools are going to be used against Christians, Jews, or anyone else that dares to cite the Word in schools.  People should be warned, but, at the same time, be bold, and refuse to back down from the schools, or any other servants of the really bad guy that resides down below.

And your kids are in public school why?

Moonbattery: Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer Encourages Bullying?

Share


I saw this story covered on KDKA out of Pittsburgh, and my initial response was, Whiskey. Tango. Foxtrot???  Apparently, the nannies have their panties in a collective bundle over the adventures of that infamous, and much loved, red-nosed reindeer.  Here is that report…

Is that just about the most asinine pile of garbage that you have ever heard? I can’t believe that I actually have to explain this, but the freaking story is about overcoming adversity, and finding one’s place in the world. But, I guess it would be better if Santa HUGGED him? And that it’s bad that Rudolph’s gift turned out to save the day? Think about it though, the fool in the video represents a point of view that everyone who is bullied is a victim, and needs to be coddled, so that they’ll never grow, develop, or become independent. It’s the nanny state in action. If they had their way, Rudolph would have been coddled. The others would have been punished, and forced to let Rudolph participate in all of the reindeer games. The others still would not like him, and he would know it. He would never grow any confidence of his own, and all the children of the world wouldn’t have recieved their toys. But, it would look good, and that’s all the nannies care about. That, and Rudolph would always be dependent, and voting Democrat in every election.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying that bullies should be free to terrorize the public, but this report takes it to the extreme. Punish folks for bad behavior, and give everyone a chance to learn and grow. But know this; sometimes adversity forces people to grow, and teaches them to overcome negative circumstances that come-no matter how much nannies try to shield people from life.

No freaking wonder that society is so dysfunctional.

Nation of Emotional Cripples Bans Bullying

Share

Stunned by recent incidents of schoolyard bullying, and heeding the cry of Hollywood to do something, the House passed a resolution calling for an end to “all bullying and unnice behavior” in the entire United States “unless said bullying is directed at a monster such as Sarah Palin.”

The House resolution was introduced by Anthony Weiner, (D-NY) of the ninth congressional district.  During a moving speech that had himself and many members of the House in tears, congressman Weiner recounted painful incidents from his childhood when he was bullied:

I remember it like it was yesterday.  It has seared my consciousness.  In 8th grade I was chosen last for the volleyball team in gym class.  I was so humiliated I went home, cried, played my Simon and Garfunkel albums and read the Lord of the Rings trilogy to get my mind off things.  As I lay in bed that night, dreaming of escaping my troubles with Frodo and Samwise Gamgee I decided then and there to dedicate my life to social justice.  Never again in my America would a man with no athletic ability whatsoever be chosen last.  I mean just because I throw like a girl –

And here Weiner broke down, sobbing, unable to continue.

After paramedics gave Weiner oxygen and placed him on a stretcher it was Steny Hoyer’s (D-MD) chance to talk about the anti-bullying resolution.

I can identify with my younger colleague.  I too have been bullied.  I too have been humiliated.  In high school I asked Julie Davidson to the prom.  I had been in love with this girl since the 4th grade. I finally got the courage to speak to her.  I walked right up to her and asked her if she would go to the prom with me.  She laughed and called me a “doofus.”  All her girlfriends she was with laughed at me too.  I felt so embarrassed my ballsack retreated up into my throat.  It had to be surgically extracted.  I vowed then and there that never again in my America would a nerdy doofus be denied the opportunity to take an attractive woman to the prom.  I yield the balance of my time but not before saying – bullying – never again!  Bullying!  Never again!  Unless it’s directed at Sarah Palin or her slut children.

The House resolution, in addition to banning bullying mandates that all sporting events must contain at least five nonathletic nerds who throw like girls.  Also, whenever possible games must end in a tie to ensure that “everyone feels good about themselves and those who would have lost aren’t traumatized.”

Cheer leading squads must contain “four ugly girls with braces, at least three one-legged girls and if at all possible one manly hermaphrodite.”

The House resolution will now be sent to the Senate where it is expected to pass easily, thanks to Harry Reid (D-NV) who often sits alone in dark room, crying because he used to wet the bed. Often.  In college. And law school.  And the floor of the Senate.
