Jonah Mowry: 'Whats goin on..'( School Bullying)
This is a pitiful video. This child is in genuine pain due to the bullying he has suffered since first grade. He dreads starting eighth grade.
So?...: Some comments and questions:
--- When children are confined and herded together in same age groups with insufficient adult supervision, we should expect bullying. Bullying not an exception given the social situation the children must endure.. ( In many ways, the social pathology seen in institutional schools resembles prison pathology.)
---It is more important for modestly talented white collar workers in the government schools to keep their jobs and feed the educational-industrial complex than it is to really find **HUMANE** schooling models and effective teaching methods.
---There are schools and situations where it would be better for the child to receive **no** education whatsoever than to suffer the abuse they experience in school. Illiteracy and innumeracy can be fixed. Dead can't be. This child is in one of those situations.
---Why are children **forced** by the government to endure abuse that would win an adult court ordered restraining orders, felony charges, and millions in court for workplace harassment?
---Surely the parents know what is going on. This child needs to be rescued. Why have they abandoned him?
---Why should this child trust his parents or those adults in his life who should be rescuing him but have failed to do so?
---Why aren't teachers held to the **same** standards and penalties as employers in the workplace? Why are teachers and principals special and immune from personal court suits and government penalties and fines? Where are the class action attorneys when children need them?
---This child is in tremendous pain. The other children in the class have witnessed this bullying. Are they living in hellish fear that they may be the next victim? Is it good for children to be forced to witness such abuse? I certain don't think so.
---One of the cruelest things to say to a child suffering from bullying it to say, "It is normal or it is good for you." If it isn't good for an adult in the workplace or woman in a marriage, why would we think it is good for a **child**?
Again: ( It can't be stressed enough!)
How we currently school the vast majority of our nation's children threatens our nation's continuing freedom. If we treat children like prisoners in godless, socialist-entitlement, and prison-like schools we should NOT NOT NOT be surprised if we have a nation of future voters who are comfortable being godless and socialist state prisoners.
As people become more and more animalistic and cold of heart, and tribal (herd animals), sadistic bullying becomes more and more of a reality.
Queers are trying to cash in on this natural progression of socialist cultural cleansing by claiming the bullied child is gay and belongs to them - under their tribal protection.
So the bullied child get double abused.
As an adult, when was the last time you gave a person a bloody nose? ( Just wondering.)
Personally, as an adult I have never worked in such an environment. I have never chosen such a social circle.
A lot of fathers/husbands need to grow a pair. Part of that is setting things straight with emotionally impaired wives that have zero understanding how these things work with boys/young men.
Women nurture by instinct. They have their place after a fight occurs. But when it comes to raising a boy to become a man, a father is needed. A mother can help raise a gentleman, as well as fathers. But women lack the natural ability to teach a boy to be a man.
I fear our nation lacks good men to be fathers. There are too many limp-wristed, weak, liberal males that are chronologically men. These are the type of people that are willing to wait for the police to show up when their family's life and property need defending. What happens when our nation needs to be defended?

Until this thread, I had never considered the homosexual angle. Hm? VERY insightful! Double abuse!
I had some punk from the football team ridicule me in the cafeteria at lunchtime when I was a kid.
I bloodied his nose.
He was stunned
I did not get in trouble, and now that SOB is spending life in prison because he married and murdered a classmate.
Stand up! Fight!
We know right and wrong!
Give your children a fighting chance.
Teach them moral absolutes.
I seriously doubt this boy has a father at home or a father figure. Google his name - you’ll see what I’m talking about.
I will give an example from my own childhood.
When my brother was about 6, and 8 year old neighbor boy cornered him and held his little thumb to a cigarette lighter badly blistering it. My older brother who was then about 18 found this thuggish 8 year old and seriously threatened him. After that neither my brother or I ever had any problem with bullying in the neighborhood or in school.
Another time, my older brother, who was then about 13, was selling flowers at the entrance to the elevated train station. He was approached by two homosexuals and teased by them. My uncle ( who owned the greenhouse that supplied the flowers) and another uncle waited for these homosexuals. Again, there was a **serious** but polite talk. These homosexuals were never seen in the neighborhood again.
One final example:
My older brother,( as an adult, father, and husband, )had drug dealers move into his neighborhood. One evening my brother and other men in the neighborhood had a very polite and business-like talk with the dealers. They pointed out the roofs where snipers could easily take aim at the drug dealers. They also mentioned that police won't be very eager to vigorously investigate any “incidents”. The next day, the dealers were permanently gone from the neighborhood.
One of our kids was bullied.
It became a very intense effort on my part and the school started to fight back. I ended up filing a lawsuit that named the principal personally to get his attention.
Schools are way too messed up. Administrators way too incompetent. In a business setting they would have the company facing endless lawsuits.
I agree with you
In a business setting they would have the company facing endless lawsuits.
Why aren’t teachers and principals held to the same standards as other citizens?
Answer: Down on the Animal Farm government union workers live in the Farmer’s House. Private citizens are prosecuted and sued into oblivion and get to sleep in the barn! OINK!
You have a point.
Please read my post #29.
My Pop cracked me up LOL
He was a deep thinker and a staunch conservative, but he would spend all kinds of time trying to engage liberals in intellectual conversation, presumably to see how they ticked and to try to sway them with words
Anyhow, to get back to the point of why he cracked me up is When we were like preteen boys (brothers, cousins, neighbors)
We were always scrapping with each other.
Poor ol Pop got tired of trying to have intellectual discussions on the matter and one day when we were scrapping, he gave us a set of boxing gloves.
He said yall wanna fight? Here ya go.
Knock yerselves out! LOL
He then lit a cigar and watched us wear each other out.
We didnt fight much after that.
Pop Was the Jedi Master LOL
“As an adult, when was the last time you gave a person a bloody nose? ( Just wondering.)
Personally, as an adult I have never worked in such an environment. I have never chosen such a social circle.”
Part of becoming an adult is learning how to handle bullies.
In answer to your question, I learned as I matured how to handle bullies with words rather than actions. Adults tend to be more civilized than youngsters.
I’ve encountered plenty of bullies in the workplace; Fortune 20 company, even some of my bosses - it’s hard to choose them. Perhaps you have better options for choosing.
Is your child a boy or girl? If he was boy, why couldn't/didn't he fight back?
I have two daughters, and they have had their bad experiences. From what I can tell, girls are much worse than boys these days. It is not physical, but it still is bullying. My girls have been taught to stand up and deal with it - just different methods than boys. They do not have problems any longer.
I know schools are way too messed up. But lawsuits cost money. It is much easier to destroy an administrator's reputation publicly. It is called politics in the adult world.
Here is how to do it: Become a Republican committeeman/woman at the county level, or have your spouse do it. Now you have a network of other (hopefully) like minded conservatives in every neighborhood in your school district. Work the network and do not miss any chance to destroy liberal lives.
Exactly so, and this is part of learning social justice.
Those that learn it well will not find themselves in the company of bullies as adults.
I was just saying the other day, that banning games such as "cowboys and indians" robs young boys of this very key learning process.
When I was a kid, if you were captured, there was a trial or tribunal of some kind.
It is difficult to teach kids adult concepts if you expect them to never have adult experiences while you cloister them away from the world.
Oh, and I forgot to mention.
Pop said there were RULES
That took the bullying out of it for the bully.
No sucker punches, no 2 against one, no BS.
When my shy daughter was in kindergarten, another girl kicked her and taunted her. We roll played it at home, and she practiced saying “STOP IT.” It worked. The girl backed off. A few weeks later, the girl invited my daughter to her birthday party.
This year, she is in high school. She is still shy and awkward. But the other day she defended a boy who was being harassed by a mean girl. She had to say it twice to get her message across, but it worked again. In fact, the girl apologized to the boy the next day.
I told my daughter that I was prouder of her than if she had gotten an A on her report card, because she stood up to evil and defended the innocent.
