Skip to comments.Anti-bullying icon bullies students with obscenity-laced anti-Christian rant

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.
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."

BINGO! He went nuts when I told him he was bullying me. I have never met a homosexual who is truly a happy person, they are all angry and bitter and growing up in Palm Springs, I have met A LOT of gays and lesbians.
Yuri Besmenov warned us. It's call demoralization. Complete societal collapse follows soon after.
Thanks for the reminder...
“Its 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.
