The Fat Kid Video And The Time My Mom Punched Mrs. K in the Face
David Horowitz's NewsReal Blog ^ | Jeff Dunetz

Posted on 03/18/2011 4:19:47 PM PDT by Michael van der Galien

The video below is one of those internet movies that become viral. It shows a fat kid (in Australia) being bullied, punched a few times till he finally decides to fight back. Like most of these viral videos, the viewer can figure out what led to this point in the story. It is obvious that this wasn’t the first time the “fat kid” in this video was bullied; it was simply the first time he stood up to the bully.

WATCH THE (pretty awesome) VIDEO

This video touched me greatly because, well when I was growing up, I was that fat kid. And this video reminded me of the first time I stood up to a bully, I didn’t get suspended from school like the “fat kid in the video,” but it did lead to my Mom (of blessed memory) punching the bully’s mom in the face.

I happened to see this video last night when I surfed onto O'Reilly's show.
BOR was upset that the "fat kid" could have seriously hurt the bully and the "fat kid" should have thought twice before body slamming the bully.
BOR - a classic Lib POS.

“BOR was upset that the “fat kid” could have seriously hurt the bully”

The first time I watched the video I thought the little kid was fighting back for something that occurred before the filming started and the bigger kid was the bully.

I still don’t understand how a bigger kid could be bullied by a smaller kid physically.

Name calling, mental, and social bullying (which are often times more harmful in the long run) I can understand. How in the world do you let yourself get punched all the time by someone you can literally pick up and toss around like a rag doll?

Must be a personality thing.

Personality, yes, but also he’s been taught pacifism by his parents. To turn the other cheek. He’s been trying to do what his parents have told him to do. Hard to blame a kid for being obedient.

I’m 6 1/2 feet tall and have a HUGE skeletal frame. I was warned as a young teen-age to stay out of fights as I could, even in self-defense truly injure someone. When as a sailor I had the most boring SHORE PATROL duties because no one, even the drunkest, wanted to try me out. I’m thankful because I’m quite passive and happy about it.
Call me names, I think you are stupid, get physical and I am the one on my feet, and in trouble with the law.

One of my dad’s brothers loved to tease. My dad told a story of growing up in Western Canada in the 1920s/early 30s and walking home from school across the property of a Ukranian farmer. The Ukranian family had a rather obnoxious child who enjoyed attaching himself to the older kids as they walked home. At any rate, there were a lot of goat droppings on the path as they walked and my uncle tried to convince “Mikey” to pick them up and try the “raisins.”

Fortunately Mikey wasn’t stupid and he didn’t try the road raisins. He did, however, run home to his mom who came out and caught my uncle by the ear to make sure he heard her. My dad could do the accents really well - he really enjoyed telling this one on his little brother.

Anyway, Mrs. *Stovchovik* (I’ve forgotten her real name) grabbed my uncle by the ear and yelled at him in her less-than-perfect English,

“You tell my Mikey eat cheet!”

“You eat cheet! You beeger! You hold more!”

Maybe because he didn’t want to smash the little bitch’s bones into the ground until he had no other choice but to do that.

Good for him. Had it been me, I would have knee dove him after he landed to drive my point home even further.

I have no sympathy for the little kid. I just hope he’s able to learn a lesson from this.

“BOR was upset that the “fat kid” could have seriously hurt the bully”

the first time i saw this (earlier in the week) i was impressed that the big kid (Casey, i think) didn't keep hurting the little punk after he dropped him... he dropped him and walked away... haha! i read someone's comment that said the little punk was walking all "bambi" afterward... i thought that was funny... they are both lucky that the big kid didn't drop the punk on his head...

BOR is correct the Bigger Kid could have seriously hurt the one dancing around like OBama, that be the bully, .......but he didn't. I believe that is more than can be said about BOR’s sexual harassment.
He is so tiresome.

If you watch the video, there is a kid that walks up to the fat kid in a threatening manner. These two are then separated by a third person.

I believe that it was this kid lurking in the shadows that was backing up the little kid.

It probably is a personal thing. When I was kid, I attended a Military school. Some bullying went on but not for long. We had one kid in our company like the big kid in the video. He had a personal problem where he would crap in his pants. Many kids picked on him all the time. Until.....some of us got together and protected him. It wasn’t his fault, he just had a problem. The kid turned out to be a really good guy and learned to stand up for himself once he saw us taking on the other kids. Some kids just don’t know how to fight....it takes something like this to show them that they can defend themselves.

We used to get harassed all the time simply for being female in the Middle East. One time, my sister was on her roller skates when some little twit began to harass her. She had simply had enough. The instant he touched her, she skated right into him, felled him, put her foot on his neck with his skinny little neck between the front and back wheels and let out a barrage that he listened to without even trying once to move. That’s a pretty image in my mind.

Back in my fraternity in college one of the frat brothers was a 6’ 4” 320lb OT on the football team. He was the nicest guy around. Never looked to confront anyone. So one day this smaller guy tries to take advantage of him by pushing him more than once. The big guy just kept telling him to stop before he got mad. The little guy told him he did not have the guts to make him stop. Long story short, the smaller guy ended up thru the wall up to his chest out stone cold.

The little guy in this video showed a lack of experience in fisticuffs. When you hit a guy in the face, twice, with everything you got and he just stares back at you, that is the time to get out of Dodge, because you got big problems.

BOR is right. Clearly, the big fellow could have seriously injured or perhaps even killed the little bully, but that’s part of growing up. Some lessons, dangerous though they may be, need to be learned in youth. Having lived through this one, that kid now stands a better chance of surviving adulthood.

“I still don’t understand how a bigger kid could be bullied by a smaller kid physically.”

The smaller kid had a couple of friends with him, at least one of which was bigger.

The kid was bigger, no doubt, but my understanding was that the group had been bullying him for a long time.

The bigger kid reminds me of the kid in the Bad Santa movie. Big and afraid until he was pushed too far.

The first time I watched the video I thought the little kid was fighting back for something that occurred before the filming started and the bigger kid was the bully.

I thought the body language of the smaller kid was that of a smart-ass trying to prove something. The bigger kid gave him plenty of chances to avoid it -- it isn't like he retaliated after the first punch, or even the second one.

It looks to me like the little sh*t learned a valuable lesson, and I hope that the bigger kid, whose body language to me indicates that he was fully aware that he could cream, pulverize the little yapper the same way a St. Bernard could obliterate a chihuahua, but was inclined not to because of the unfair differences in size. The little sh*t, it looks to me, was taking advantage of the bigger kid's good nature and miscalculated.

When I was a kid I managed to be on both sides of the subject, more than once.
Lost more'n I won, won the ones that went on the longest (repeats)...

I'm totally for the big kid and remember a time when a guy named Melovic could have smeared me against five unadorned lug nuts and his biker boots - but stopped and walked away...
Size does call for restraint, but nobody needs to put up with having some punk entertain his friends by harassing an easy target.

And the target's response was a beautiful thing to see.

On that note, I'll bet the "friends" encouragement had more to do with the punk's actions than did anything else...I'd bet on a set up of both parties.

Ditto. As a former college professor I am convinced that experiential learning is the best form of learning. That kid has now learned not to let your mouth write a check your butt can’t cash.

Does anybody know if the big kid has been approached yet by the WWF? LOL!!!

As long as the professional victims don’t get hold of his mind and twist the lesson into a belief that he’s the one who was wronged... he has a chance. There’s far too many today who don’t take responsibility for learning life’s lessons when they’re ripe for the learning, no matter how many times it hits them in the head. Experience is the thing that enables you to recognize a mistake before you make it again.

I would hope he refrains from that behavior in the future just because it’s wrong to intentionally hurt others... but even if it’s just to avoid being at the losing end of a pile driver... so be it. :)

Well, yeah, Billy Boy was just looking out for the best interests of his own people -- bullies. This is the same jerk who has, throughout the length of his career, tried to intimidate people with the suggestion of potential physical violence. He LOVES to refer to his height when he is losing an argument.

Right on. One thing I discovered when I was young is that bullies almost always operate from within a group.
If you get them alone and confront them, they're usually cowards.

That was me as a kid. The big kid called fat by some, and always had to deal with what I called “Little man Syndrome”. I was only in 3 fights in my life, and all 3 were with someone half my size trying to prove himself to his buddies.
None succeeded, with me anyway.
Actually had someone say in the middle of one of those fights, after I had given the little guy every chance to walk away, and had tried to myself several times, “Pick on someone your own size!”. I was angry by then and spun around and said “How about you?”. They left the scene rapidly.
