Mayor Who Told Bullying Victims to ‘Grow a Pair’ Is Refusing to Back Down: ‘Enough’s Enough’
The Blaze ^ | May. 21, 2014 | Erica Ritz

California Mayor Cameron Hamilton has some blunt advice for those who are being bullied: “Grow a pair.”

“I’m against bullying, but I’m getting damn tired of it being used as a mantra for everything and the ills of the world, when most people have to just grow a pair and stick up for them damn selves,” the Porterville mayor said at a city council meeting last week.

CNN describes the mayor as “looking and talking like an Old West figure,” and he’s not backing down despite claims that his comments were homophobic.

Attention America! Your language is, once again, being hijacked by the HomoNazi Lobby! Bullying is now something that only happens to queers! How gay is that?

i predicted many years ago that the incessant use of the bullying label will cause a backlash, and this might be the beginning of the stand.

You can’t be bullied unless you let it happen.

and he’s not backing down despite claims that his comments were homophobic.

Which brings us to the whole point of the "anti-bullying" campaign. In case there's anyone left who is unaware.

The Anti-Bulliers are the biggest and most illogical bullies.

homophobic

Let's see...

If you're against cancer, you must be cancerphobic

If you're against rape, you must be rapeophobic

If you're against murder, you must be murderophobic

If you're against child molestation, you must be molestophobic

If you're against getting sunburned, you must be burnophobic

If you hate stupid movies, you msut be stupidophobic

And if you jump to conclusions like the Daily Beast, you must be conlcusophobic (or maybe just claustrophobic).

And if you are against truth—what does that make you? A liberal.

Anyone know who's claiming that non sequitur?

“Tolerance” is basically liberal code for “consent to being exposed to deviant behavior”. Most bullying is useful for growing character, anyways; if you can’t deal with Robby from Joe Dirt, then how are you going to deal with IRS goons and urbanites who try to steal all of your possessions?

Just as "sodomite rights" is an oxymoron, "homophobic" is almost always a non sequitur (Latin for "it does not follow").

Whatever the Left uses for facts and figures, it rarely supports their conclusions. They just throw terms like "homophobic" against the wall to see if it will stick. Peel the stupid thing off by showing they have no support for their "homophobic" accusation or conclusion and turn it around on them to say that they, instead, are truthophobic or reasonophobic.

Just out of curiosity, is it legal for people to react to bullies in the way this guy advises, in his locale? Because there are a lot of places where doing so is now criminal.

In my day kids were bullied for all sorts of reasons: too short, too tall, too skinny, too fat, too shy, nerdy, wearing braces, too many freckles, too poor, too rich, etc.

Now the only official reasons for being bullied are if you are queer or a tranny.

So if you are being bullied for any other reason then you should clam up, or else decide you're gay or gender confused and come out of the closet and get protection from the Bully Police, i.e. LGBTIQZYX folks.

Normal, non-PC speech sounds so refreshing when you hear its rare utterance, it almost sounds obscene to our culture-corrupted ears.

“homophobic” = Nazi = racist = bigot, etc.

Damned tired of the queers and their insipid supporters...
