Anti-bullying icon bullies students with obscenity-laced anti-Christian rant
The American Thinker ^ | April 28, 2012 | Rick Moran

Posted on 04/29/2012 2:02:12 AM PDT by Cincinatus' Wife

Part of the hypocrisy of the "anti-bullying" movement is that the concept of bullying is never defined in a meaningful way. Evidently, bullying is one of those things that is defined by the "victim."

Hence, we have the spectacle of the man who created the video "It Gets Better" can speak against the bullying of gay kids, but then turn around and bully kids with Christian beliefs - and get away with it.

Fox News:

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.

[...]

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."

It’s what leftscum do: take a good cause, change the meaning of the words (here “bullying” has been changed to mean “Christian”), and use the deception to dupe people...

This isn’t new coming from Dan Savage. He’s a bitchy vindictive homosexual who has done stuff like this before. The fact that this “guy” and Lady Gaga are involved should be a big clue that this new focus on bullying has a lot more to do with promoting homosexuality than it does protecting students from being bullied.

This should tell a lot more students, parents and people who learn about this, that “journalism” studies just as “education” studies are doorways used to enter and influence young minds.

“an anti-bullying speaker began cursing, attacked the Bible”

http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=1%20John+4:3&version=KJV

1 John 4:3

King James Version (KJV)

3 And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God:
and this is that spirit of antichrist,
whereof ye have heard that it should come;
and even now already is it in the world.

“Ever hang around a sandbox and listen to 4 and 5 year olds? Your blood will curdle at some of the stuff that is said. Teasing, name calling, and other manifestations of rigid social organization among children where those not in your “group” are targets for abusive language and behavior has been going on since the species walked out of Africa.”

Well said.

The problem with the gays is that they seem to be thin-skinned and are so easily offended when called names by the vast majority of folks that are offended by their homo practices.

It seems that every time you turn around there are a bunch of queers that raise all kinds of heck simply because they are offended by someone’s words.

The whole point of the “anti-bullying” movement is to stifle critical analysis.
Someone’s feelings might be hurt if their arguments are shown to be devoid of rational thought.

Poof goes the 1st Amendment.

One has to wonder at whether Mr. "THavage" (seen on the right) perceives the irony involved in calling someone else a "pansy ass."

From Skousen's Communist Goals:

26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as "normal, natural, healthy."

These disgusting perverts are deliberately dismantling America...of course, what they do in the bedroom in none of our concern.

Right.

Perverts. This had nothing to do with bullying. It’s foisting their perversions on everybody else. And bullying those that don’t accept it in the way they demand you do. For 1 percent of the population they cry like they are 30 percent and everyone seems afraid of them.

Faggies are a lot like Muslims, IMO.

Zero tolerance for any criticism of their ways. Violent response to those who dare to.

He does not have a “husband”. In spite of what some wish to believe, a marriage consists of one member of the opposite sex being united or joined with another member of the opposite sex. Always has, always will.

Oh.... haven’t you heard? The Devil doesn’t exist. He said so himself. And Muslims say they worship the same G-d as Jews & Christians. Said so themselves. Hmmm......

Dan the Perv Savage is really making it into the news lately. The anti-bullying campaign is all about pushing homosexuality onto kids and recruitment and forcing everyone else to bow to the agenda or shut up. "Bullying" to these band of perverts means not "embracing" gaydom. Or is that gaydumb? Savage is really after the kids, note the article pinged out today wherein Savage the perv says there are "good pedophiles".

Had a Christian minister yelled at a bunch of gay students - the New York Times would have covered it.

The New York Times has a style book for punctuation - but not one for how to cover stories with consistency? They've got to get real...

Too bad that the biggest kid on the football team didn’t walk up and give that bully a knuckle sandwich!

I posit that LIEberals are bullies who have never had to take responsibility for their words or actions. My experience with bullies is that once they realize they will be held responsible (IOW, knuckle sandwiches), they straighten up and fly right.

IOW, getting knocked on your ass a couple of times tends to have a civilizing effect on future behavior.

Gays are great ones for “Free speech for me but not for thee” and “do as I say, not say what I do”.

I lost a long time (since grade school) close friend (gay) recently over this same issue. I said bullying isn’t limited to gays and he freaked. It ended with him telling me I HAD to accept (approve) of his homosexuality and couln’t say it was a sin, but he could say Christians and conservatives were stupid (and worse) and I couldn’t defend myself.

Their hypocrisy is astounding.

“It’s what leftscum do: take a good cause,..”

You make an error in assuming that it is a good cause from the beginning. There is no such thing as a good cause for government intrusion, where the individual simply needs to be empowered.

Oh, I agree. By “good cause,” I simply meant doing something about bullies. The correct “something” would be re-establishing the concepts of right and wrong, dumping “zero tolerance” policies that punish those who defend themselves, and imposing consequences - from expulsion to financial pain to jail - on bullies, with “bullying” strictly defined to be physical intimidation of other students.
