This Is The Left’s Answer To Bullying?

First enjoy Dan Savage talking passionately with a group of High School Students, paid for of course by the Department of Education, as a part of their anti bullying campaign labeled, “It Gets Better.”

Having been a member in good standing of the political left very early on in my life, I know pretty much all of the asinine mantras that we are likely to hear. violence never solved anything and war is never the answer are among my favorites. Upon growing up, and actually learning a little something about economics, history, and consequences, I gave up being a leftist, (or being wrong about everything,) just prior to graduating from college. The problem with the phrase violence never solved anything is that in the real world, it is just not true. In fact, violence often is the only thing which can solve some problems. Wringing our hands and crying about bullying will only serve to embolden the bullies, most especially since they get a rise in their good feelings by inflicting fear upon their victims. So, when they see a national whine fest like the one in the video, their reaction is not going to be, “golly, I did not know I was causing so much angst amongst my fellow human beings. Maybe I should rethink my life.” The reaction is more likely to be, “hey, I got a lot of people to be afraid of me. I really am somebody.” The answer for people who seek validation in bullying others is to not allow them to find that validation.

Imagine if the Department of Education spent the money wasted on Dan Savage’s approach to purchase karate lessons for every child in America identified as a potential target instead. Standing up to bullies is what stops bullying. This is something which was understood by people who existed prior to the 1970′s. It is also a valuable lesson for children to learn, as adults are also capable of bullying. The only difference is that adults bully in different manners, but the methodology for stopping it is the same. Standing up to the bullies, and giving them a dose of their own medicine rather than validation is what will put an end to it. As Dennis Miller once asked, “do we really want to send our children into the world completely unprepared for the shit storm that is adult life?”

For Mr. Savage I have this to say, what Bible are you reading? In my Bible, the Old Testament, the whole slavery issue was addressed with the parting of the Red Sea and Moses leading the children of Israel away from the slave masters of Egypt. The removal of the tyranny of bondage is kind of the whole point behind the Jewish Holiday know as Passover. In case you have missed its airing every single year since the mid 50′s, go and rent, “The Ten Commandments,” some time. It was a movie directed by Cecile B. DeMille, and is generally regarded as the way an epic movie should be made. Personally, I found the performances of Yul Brynner and Charleton Heston to be over the top, but then that really seems to be just up your alley anyhow.

I have also not read anything about stoning girls for losing their virginity any where in any version of the Bible that I have ever seen. Don’t Murder, (including stoning people to death,) don’t steal, don’t bear false witness, those concepts are all in there however. Putting aside the religious and anti religious arguments, I am sorry that you personally never learned to stand up to the bullies who tormented you during your formative years. While you obviously never learned the lesson of standing up to them in order to stave off their vicious attacks, you also subconsciously learned to utilize this for your own personal validation. Here is my case in point, a video of Dan Savage bragging about his attempts to bully Rick Santorum. The video also highlights other leftists telling us that they feel as though capitulation and appeasement are the preferred methods for dealing with bullies.

Now that these videos of you have gone viral, enjoy your upcoming vacation spot, otherwise known as under Barack Obama’s bus. say hello to the many folks already there.

    Returning to the topic at hand, it is interesting to watch this video by one of Savage’s poor dupes in his “It Gets Better” campaign. The boy speaking killed himself; and, if you watch the video, you can see from his flat, affectless monotone that he is lying throughout his presentation. He might wish that what he was saying were true, but he himself knows it is not.

    @ buzzsawmonkey:

    You know I watched this video, and it is sad that someone would take this selfish step. There is a reason why every psych nurse I have ever met, and there are a lot of them with one in the family, loathes the people with borderline dissociative disorder. That reason by the way has nothing to do with the suicide attempts.

    The thing about this video is that we will never know if there were, or what else was undoubtedly going on in the belfry known as his mind. this young man obviously had more problems beyond his confusion issues. I refuse to take the responsibility for someone else’s attempt to put an end to their own existence, most especially those whom I have never had the pleasure of meeting.

    Fair enough; my point, however, is that Savage is collecting kids like the one whose obit I linked to and using them for his own ends. In this, he reminds me of the old South Park where Rob Reiner comes to town, cozies up to Eric Cartman, and is planning to kill Cartman in order to prove that cigarettes are evil.

  9. 9 | April 30, 2012 5:42 pm

    @ Lily:

    I also have a problem with him holding up the behavior of people who use the bible as an excuse to avail themselves of evil as the paragon of what the Bible teaches. The Bible is not a pro slavery document because some slave owners posited the argument that their authority to commit that heinous act was granted in the Bible. Besides being flat out nonsense, evil people are always rationalizing their evil. That does not mean that every document that they hold up really preaches what they claim it does.

    The entire anti-bullying movement was put together by the heads of the LGBT movement. It has nothing to do with bullying unless the one being bullied falls under one of those “protected” groups. I know in my area they have begun “protecting” non-gay bullied kids by taking away their recesses.

    If you research you’ll see a massive amount of cross-pollination between the gay rights movement and the anti-bullying groups.

    No, he doesn’t “loathe bullies.”

    He merely dislikes people whom he has accepted as “gay” and worthy of protection—i.e., those who share his political views in addition to being interested in same-sex coupling—being disadvantaged in any way.

    Good point, and one I had not considered.

    @ Lily:

    It is painfully obvious to me that he is nothing more than the manifestation of the psychological damage perpetuating itself. He has become that very thing that once tormented him. He learned to be the bully by being bullied himself. Victims of child abuse will be the most likely to become abusers. Children who’s parents abandoned them, will be the most likely to abandon their own kids. Literally, Dan Savage is a psychology 101 class.

    The “anti-bully” movement works in tandem with the pushing of “transgenderism” to geld and marginalize traditional sex roles.

    “Transgenderism”—aka postmodern flesh sculpture—is the ultimate triumph of “feelings” over fact.

    “Anti-bullying” ensures that the whiny victim will be able to triumph over his adversary without the necessity of having to fight back himself. One generation of this and there will be no adults for the whiner to run to.


  16. 16 | April 30, 2012 5:53 pm

    @ Mars:

    To which I say, let’s do something actually destined to get results. Let’s give these kids karate, or kung fu lessons. If you want to stop bullying, don’t reward the behavior by validating the bullies. Once they get their asses kicked, that usually puts an end to it. yes there are some who will require a further beating, as they might be slow learners besides, but my method is guaranteed to work about a thousand times better than whining about it.

    Savage’s hatred for the Bible is typical of those ignorant and angry leftist homosexuals who wrongly believe that the Bible condemns “being gay,” when what it actually does is condemn certain acts.

    I cannot speak for the Christians, but under Jewish law condemnation/conviction for a certain act required the non-conflicting testimony of at least two witnesses. As a practical matter, this means that one can have whatever desires one has, and one can even engage in certain forbidden actsif they are not witnessed.

    I point this out because people like Savage are under the erroneous impression that a third-grade-level reading of a Biblical translation of questionable quality somehow qualifies them to make pronouncements on the meaning of the text.

    This is not always true. Sadly many people who were abused are so scared because it has been brain-washed into them that they will do the same to their children, they have no children. It is a choice on the persons part to continue the abuse. Sorry I was bullied in school and did not turn to bullying. It made me hyper-aware of other peoples feelings. Criminals have used and lied about their childhoods to get their sentences lessoned. Yes on occasion the abused become abusers but it is NOT a given. I have read many peoples accounts of horrid childhoods and these people become excemptly great people despite the odds in their early childhoods. I have read where adults were given the greatest of childhoods who have turned out to be the most horrid of people.

    @ Lily:

    You may have noticed that I used the phraseology of more likely, or most likely. Nothing is certain, and not even better than a 50/50 shot. Everyone faces some bullying in their development somewhere. What differentiates us is how we learn to deal with it. Dan Savage has some obviously unresolved issues. He is also willing to allow harm to come to others in order for him to allow his personal demons free reign to grant what he believes will be satisfaction.

    Homosexual behavior is very small potatoes—in the Torah, at least (I don’t know the Christian Bible well enough to comment on it). Understandably so, of course—because it is the regulation of relationships between the sexes, and at different levels of consanguinity, which is more important for the perpetuation of a healthy society.

    Arguably, the Levitical prohibitions are actually limited to the performance of homosexual acts in the furtherance of idolatry (homosexual orgies were part of the worship in some of the idolatrous cults in the ancient world). This would tie into the prohibition against both men and women working as sacred prostitutes, which appears in Deuteronomy—right next to a prohbition against male and female commercial (as opposed to sacred) prostitutes using their ill-gotten gains to pay their Temple dues.

    It is my impression that these prohibitions were expanded during the Hellenistic period, when Greek mores (including idolatry and pederasty) made serious inroads into Hebrew society.

    Excatly. It is small potatoes to be honest. Where it goes awry is trying to what is a good word, convert teenagers to become gay, or telling everyone there is nothing wrong with it. Basically I see it as heterosexuals having wanton sex, same difference. Do we encourage teenagers to have sex just because they want it? Now days we do and that is wrong also. But in the end it is between them and God.

    Good point. The Seventies were the decade where the mores of the gay bar—one-night stands, promiscuity, drug use—broke out of the homosexual subculture and became embedded in the larger society.

    It’s almost bizarre to think of it now, but as late as 1968 one of the big national hits in American popular music was…Love Child, a Supremes song in which the woman singing the song refuses to sleep with her boyfriend lest she become pregnant and bear a child out of wedlock, as she herself was born, despite the fact that she recognizes she will probably lose him by refusing.

    Four to six years later the whole country was doin’ it in the road.

    A few notes. Many bullied kids are special needs individuals so teaching them to stand up to the bullies won’t be very effective. What needs to happen is that other more capable kids need to come to their defense. Easily said but a hard thing to do because you then make yourself a target.

    Another thing is that in my day you stood up to the bully and even if you got your but kicked that usually put a stop to it. Now standing up to the bully could get you shot. On the other hand constant bullying can lead kids to snap and shoot up a whole school. The adults are the ones that need to get a handle on this, the teachers and bus drivers. I wonder how many of them are afraid to get involved?

    Are you referring to Columbine? The two teenagers who shot up that school were not bullied. They were bullies. The msm drummed it into the minds of Americans that the those two shot up the school were bullied, nothing could be further from the truth.
    This book, which is very well researched puts to bed all the myths of Columbine.
    http://www.amazon.com/Columbine-Dave-Cullen/dp/B004Y6MT96/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1335826269&sr=1-1


  31. 31 | April 30, 2012 6:56 pm

    @ Rancher:

    Which brings up another point. Who’s bright idea was it to put an end to the parents having the right to spank their children. I’m not talking about whacking them around like you’re from the other side or anything, but setting parameters and teaching the kiddies a healthy respect for authority and to have some apprehension for wrong behavior is a must. Those kiddies you speak of with weapons to aid in their bullying efforts I guarandamntee you grew up without any corrective behavior modification at all.

    Once in my Woolworth store a mother was beaten senseless by her 13 year old son. When the police came along with the ambulance we called for her, the officer asked her point blank if she had ever spanked her kid. I will never forget, for as long as I live, the absurdity of her looking at the officer from her rolling gurney with blood trickling out of her ear and repeating the phrase, “violence begets violence.”

    The officer did not even attempt to hide his laughter. He just blurted out, “dumbass, what do you think you have now?”

    The Left hates religion for two reasons.

    First, it allows for the notion that there is an authority higher than man.

    Second, all religions make distinctions between acceptable and non-acceptable behavior and have a very efficient mechanism of enforcement that the Left has been trying to co-opt with ever-increasing success; shame.

    Global warming, political correctness, bullying, fairness in life, et al. The Left in conjunction with the professional media is using the identical mechanism to enforce their ideologies that they denigrate religion for using.

    That is the crux of the matter. The homosexual lifestyle is one of one unbridled unrestricted sexual experience after the other. It is promiscuous liaison city. Since homosexual DO NOT REPRODUCE sexually in order to maintain their lifestyle of constant new partnership experiences they need a constantly expanding crop of new partners added to their swimming pool, as it were.

    Absolutely. I’ve been saying for some time that the reason for all of the leftist handwringing about abuse in the Catholic Church is…that the NAMBLA crowd doesn’t want competition, and most importantly doesn’t want competition from a group which recognizes that what has been done is morally wrong—when it actually has been done, that is.

    There’s plenty of sexual abuse by teachers in the NYC public school system, but the teachers are kept on at no-show jobs and protected by their union. The Church, when called to account, recognizes that a wrong has been committed; a huge difference, and one which the Left would rather eliminate.

    The withdrawal, by adults, from positions of enforcement, and their self-tying of their own hands, has brought us to this place.

    Time was, it was understood that children fight—and that while this was not desirable, this was permissible, as long as certain basic rules were abided by. Parents, school authorities, police, etc., all understood this.

    Now, schools enforce “zero tolerance”—which sounds like a serious ban, until you realize that it treats the instigator and the victim of the instigation the same. The right is not backed up; the social worker, not the policeman, is in the driver’s seat.

    Astonishingly little was made of Obama’s “Safe Schools Czar” Kevin Jennings being an admirer of one of the founders of NAMBLA, and of his having started an organization that went into high schools to teach “safe fisting” techniques. Indeed, unlike Anita Dunn or Van Jones, Jennings was not fired but left of his own accord.

    In the recent bullying verbiage, it is increasingly clear that, just as “education” means “haranguing and bullying opponents into acquiescence” to leftists, “safe schools” means “pro-gay-rights agenda antibullying initiatives” and has nothing whatsoever to do with actually making schools safe.

    On some other conservative forums, hawt female teachers educating mid-teenage boys really breaks the “conservative faction” into two distinct groups.

    Sorry, not to defend Dan, cause he is clearly one fucked up puppy, but his hair style isn’t a hair style, it’s the result of a combination of it’s length and how curly it is. Believe me on this one bro, it’s something I know way to much about… :sad:

    ROTFLMAO… Little brothers copying their older brothers without knowing how much their older brothers hated how their hair looked. In the 70′s, we all wanted our hair to look like Robert Plants. Well you have to have really long hair to get that Robert Plant look, and it has to be really curly.

    So we grew our hair, and discovered that… It looked like a poorly done fro until it reached a certain length, and only then did it look right. But it had to be well past your shoulders and half way down your back before it looked right.

    Urban Infidel is right though, those fro’s did turn into the 80′s big hair, because the only way a lot of the guys could get their really straight Gregg Allman hair to look like Robert Plant or Roger Daltrey was with a ton of hairspray.

    One of the things that non- and antireligious people ignore/intentionally forget, and that religious people forget/fail to realize, is that part of the purpose of religious practice is to institutionalize the practice of compassion. This is not a bad thing.

    One cannot count on people being “moved” by the charitable impulse. Tithing and inculcating the habit of giving, of contributing, of feeling compelled to alleviate or at least address the suffering of others, even if you’d rather roll over and catch forty winks, is one of the great glories of the institutions of religion. Making “charity” a reflex ensures that contributions will be forthcoming.

    The reason that the nonreligious have, as a rule, such a vile record of giving is that they have not for the most part institutionalized the charitable impulse.

    The post-Stonewall gay-rights movement was a Maoist movement which had the objective of destroying Western society, starting with—particularly concentrating on—the institution of marriage.

    The gay-rights movement has gone from wanting to destroy marriage to demanding marriage as its must-have. I have liberal friends who believe that this is merely because “people have gotten older, and want benefits.” I do not.

    I believe that the push for same-sex marriage is a Cloward-Piven strategy aimed at benefits; at the concept of family; and at the ultimate undermining of traditional religion and the First Amendment. For this reason—despite the fact that I know individual same-sex couples who would, pair by pair, make wonderful “wedded couples”—I believe that same-sex marriage should be fought at every turn. These well-meaning individuals are being used as pawns by “advocates” playing a larger game.

    Also, as far as the power of the government compels them. There have been numerous videos of interviews with left-liberal types who, when asked whether they have given more to the government than required, have indignantly replied that they have not—even though it is from the government that all the blessings they believe in flow.

    In short, the institutionalized compassion of the religious donor is far more generous, even if a matter of reflex, than the government-compelled donation of the secular leftist—because the compassion of the religious donor, even if a matter of reflex, is still voluntary.

    If the populace votes for same-sex marriage in a plebiscite or referendum, then one of two things has happened; the society has already collapsed or the population has not been told what the issues are.

    Here’s a hint: the equation of same-sex marriage with outlawing miscegenation laws (as was done in the 1960s) is a pernicious lie. SSM is the invention of a new kind of marriage; anti-miscegenation laws were laws which prevented otherwise-marriageable people from wedding based on extraneous factors.

    Same-sex marriage is part of the war on maleness; it is part of the war upon the traditional family; and it is, further, aimed at destroying traditional religious denominations, First Amendment be damned.

    The gay-rights lobby has already half-destroyed the First Amendment with speech codes, “PC,” and “hate crimes.” Same-sex marriage is the coup de grace.

    @ darkwords:

    Understand that “transgenderism”—the utterly fact-free belief that, contrary to your body and its DNA, you are a member of the opposite sex—is completely opposed to the concept of “gay and proud.”

    The practice of “transgenderism” is an extreme form of physical self-mutilation sanctioned and practiced by a medical establishment which does not wish to admit that it has no “cure” for this deeply-rooted mental disorder.

    Most, but not all, “transgenders” are homosexuals who find self-mutilation to outwardly conform to society preferable to accepting their homosexual inclinations. South Park touched on this in an episode where Mr. Garrison underwent a sex-change operation, and was disappointed to realize that he “was not really a woman,” but decided he’d rather be a fake woman “than a fag.” Brutal, but largely true.

    There is also a smaller group of “transgenders” that undergo this surgical process but become “gay” or “lesbian”—e.g., men who become “women” but are still interested in women. These are people who hate their own gender so much that they want to avoid it despite a lack of any same-sex attraction. I know of one such case myself, where a male-to-female “transgender” wanted to remain wed to his wife, by whom he had had two children.

    Why would the gay-rights advocates embrace this relatively marginal group—so much so that they have made “transgender” the “T” in the ubiquitous “LGBT?” For several reasons. First, because these lives are so bizarre that they make a sequined drag queen with a beard look almost normal. Second, because these tales of transgenderism, the more frequently they appear in the public press, “normalize” the fringe. Third, and most important, because the tales of men who become “women” but want to stay married, or women become “men” who are nonetheless pregnant, are bollixing up the whole concept of marriage so much that same-sex marriage will seem like a blessed simplification.

    In short, the transgenders are the Cloward-Piven shock troops for the push for same-sex marriage. It is for this reason that the gay-rights activists embrace them, even though “transgenderism” is antithetical to the concept of “gay.”

The only real cure for that i believe to be love at all levels of ones being. but that seems almost impossible. Especially in a secular group.

    I could see these people being happy if they entered a commune like existence that allowed them to experience the polarity in their personalities as it cycles. And be among like minded people.

    The former is probably the better course. It certainly is the one most consistent with the concept of liberty—but it has nothing to do with “society” granting any “accommodation” to anyone.

    “Acceptance” can mean many things, as “education” can. To a leftist, “education” means “browbeating you until you agree with me”—see the Savage video above for an example.

    By the same token, “acceptance” can mean either “you are something outside social norms who will have to make your own way” or “we can chop and channel you to pretend to conform.”

    It may be true, but is it really the best way?

    First, even if they “have no choice about the way they are,” that does not mean society does not have a choice about how it responds to them.

    Second, if indeed “they have no choice about the way they are,” this proves that all of psychiatry is a complete scam (not that that is any surprise). Seriously: if the so-called “mental health professionals” are incapable of getting somebody’s male mind in line with their male DNA, or their female mind in line with their female DNA, what the hell are they good for? Why is this considered a “scientific discipline,” or indeed anything other than a joke?

    Third, of course there is “a choice.” Lots of people live heterosexual lives and then choose to be homosexual; many others, who are far less publicized (gee, guess why) live homosexual lives and then choose to be heterosexual. The revolving door lets people both in and out.

    The “gay” activists don’t accept people unless it serves their purposes; last year, a “gay softball league” in Washington State refused to accept bisexual players (the “B” in that “LGBT” alphabet soup) on the grounds that they “weren’t gay enough.” The whole recruitment drive of ever-younger “education” about homosexual behavior, ever-extended claims that if you slapped somebody on the ass during a football game or “experimented” while on a Boy Scout campout you are really gay, is about forcing people to choose when they are least informed and most vulnerable.

    There are always choices. It is the Left—the class-warfare, zero-sum crowd—who, using the language of “choice,” try to keep people from recognizing that they are in actuality free to choose at any time. The religious person recognizes that man has free will, and choices are always being made. The secular leftist babbles about “choice,” but is dedicated to ensuring that a single choice makes a life determination.

Just like when I said that evidence seemed to support a link between lesbian/bi-sexual behavior and bi-polar disorder. They said it might be true, but no one would ever write the paper.

    Got to git: ‘nite, all.

    Those of you who feel like being loquacious elsewhere for a moment can go to the PJM Tatler; I’ve got two “Buzz Ballads” up there at the moment, one of which is linked to in the first comment on this thread.

    Yes; psychiatry and psychology are cheap whore disciplines, if you will pardon my saying so. Any “science” that can vote on whether or not something is a “disorder” is full of shit.

    Much like, Narcissistic Personality Disorder being dropped after the current President was elected.

    Heard this guy on Coast to Coast AM of all places. He is awesome, his view of the future is sure to piss all the liberals off everywhere they might be.

    He believes that the future is going to be a wonderful place with enough of everything for everyone. Some of the technologies he details are already being put into place.

    Anyone who’s getting depressed about the way things are going should give him a listen to brighten their day. His optimism is amazing and contagious.

    I was bullied when I was on third grade or so. That ended because I fought back, as did friends of mine. We fought and knocked out the bullies. We hit them hard, used wolf pack tactics -- bullies were hockey players, older and athletic while we were skinny little nerds. We took them down and humiliated and as a result, we were left alone. Later on, I haven’t had to fight at all, as I know how to take care of myself and I don’t have the victim aura hanging on me.

    Regarding Dan Savage and people like him: I bet he hasn’t read bible or any other religious text more than three pages or so. He and his likes keep spewing stuff that have no basis on bible, tanakh, koran or any other texts, but which they had heard from other people who haven’t been reading those texts either. I know that since I used to be like them… until I actually opened those books and started reading. It was only then that I understood both differences between each of those books and the difference between those books and what the left says about them.
