    Just how much of the inflammatory rhetoric from the nation’s political leaders harms young people isn’t precisely known, but two recently released surveys show that groups scapegoated in public run greater risk of being bullied.

    The family of a South Carolina girl who committed suicide says she shot herself because she was bullied. Toni Rivers, 11, confided to friends before her death, saying that “she just couldn’t do this anymore, and she was going home, and she was killing herself,” the family told news station WTOC. The sixth-grader reportedly returned home Oct. 25 from her Hampton County School District elementary school and shot herself. Her 14-year-old sister found her lying on her back with a gunshot wound and called 911. {..snip..}
  • What does it take to make a snowflake?

    The complaints are everywhere. Kids, young adults included, are incapable. Dumbed-down! Inept! They’re “snowflakes.” Drifting with the breeze, piling up to weigh down roofs and flatten fences, snowflakes melt at the slightest rise in temperature while more await being pushed aside so functioning adults can get to work. But nothing happens in a box. The modern snowflake didn’t arrive like a Currier and Ives Christmas card. Their existence owes in part to previous generations being either too busy working, or inventing methods to avoid work, that no thought was given to product quality at home. (Where the heart is, remember?)...
  • Major corporations funding “gay” indoctrination in elementary schools across America.

    12/29/2014 7:27:53 AM PST · by massmike · 59 replies ^ | 12/29/2014 | n/a
    It's every parent's nightmare, but true: Major U.S. corporations are funding a campaign of sophisticated, psychologically intrusive "gay" indoctrination programs targeting very young children in elementary schools across America. It’s part of a very well-planned and well-funded effort to reach children as young as possible without their parents’ intervention. The national program, called “Welcoming Schools”, skillfully works on the minds of young children in three ways: (1) Introducing the concept of homosexuality to children. (2) Telling them that homosexuality is normal and natural. (3) Telling them that their parents or friends who portray homosexuality in a less than positive way...

    Investment manager and GOP megadonor Foster Friess told CNBC's Squawk Box on Friday that President Trump's decision to blame both white nationalist groups and their counter-protesters for last weekend's violence in Charlottesville was correct and the resulting uproar was "politically inspired." The key quote: "I love Donald Trump. He's become a victim. And he's being bullied. And that's why Americans are flocking to him, because they hate [seeing] people…bullied." Friess' influence: A supporter of conservative Christian political causes, he helped finance Rick Santorum's presidential run in 2012. He's been active in media as well, investing millions into The Daily Caller.

    A man wanted in the murder of a mother of eight who was killed after reporting her son was bullied turned himself in on Sunday, Baltimore police said.

Neal was wanted in the June 12 death of Charmaine Wilson, a 37-year-old mother of eight who was shot to death in a home in the 1700 block of Gertrude St. She had reported people were bullying her son over a bike...

    President Donald Trump believes that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell did not do everything possible to pass an Obamacare replacement bill. When reporters asked Trump why he continued to batter McConnell despite support for the Senate Majority Leader from his Republican colleagues, he replied shortly, “Don’t make anything of it, we should have health care approved.” He hinted that McConnell should have threatened to remove Sen. John McCain, Sen. Lisa Murkowski, or Sen. Susan Collins from their chair positions in the Senate to force them to vote for the health care bill. “He should have known that he had a...

    New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio treated his staffers poorly and often bullied them with harsh threats if they did not meet his demands, according to newly revealed emails. "What do I need to get you guys to follow a direct order? Do you need to experience consequences?" he threatened in one 2015 email, according to the New York Post. "I'm not raising this again: fix it, or I will [have] no choice but to find a way to penalize people. Not my preference, but I won't have my instructions ignored," he added. The emails show de Blasio blowing...

    The same news outlet which often claims President Trump is a "thin-skinned" narcissist is now threatening to ruin the life of a private person who dared mock it with a Trump meme. In an appalling display of what's been labeled "thug journalism" and may even be blackmail, CNN sought retribution against the anonymous Internet user who created a video portraying Trump wrestling a figure whose head has been replaced by CNN's logo. The video went viral this week after Trump retweeted it and irked CNN, which stated that it "encourages violence against reporters." The video's alleged creator has since been...

    ~snip~ "Today's young adults and teenagers have grown up with technology and they have access to it 24/7. Many times they become very bold over technology and text things they would never say directly to someone's face," said Melissa Tortorici, the communications director for the school district. "It's extremely difficult to stop someone from sending messages when apps make it easy to remain anonymous." As technology has become more ingrained at increasingly younger ages for children, cyberbullying has become a serious issue that teachers and parents are trying to combat.

    There is a perfectly legitimate argument to be made that the President of the United States should just sit back and take all attacks and insults hurled his way, even when the magnitude of the attacks is unprecedented. Donald Trump has chosen to ignore that philosophy. In case people aren’t aware by now, when Donald Trump is attacked, he fights back, even when he probably shouldn’t. Whether it’s a war hero like John McCain, the parents of a war hero like Humayun Khan, or just some morning talk show hosts, Mr. Trump feels the need to retaliate for criticism against...

    A lawsuit was filed today to stop the Islamization of students in San Diego public schools. Parents have been fighting this policy for months, to the school board’s deaf ears.

    Two teachers in Louisiana were arrested after they were accused of harassing an 11-year-old girl, CNN reported. The girl's mother went to the school board, as well as local authorities, and ultimately had her daughter removed from the classroom of Ann Marie Shelvin. According to police, Shelvin then threatened to fail three other students if they didn't fight the 11-year-old, and also told the girl to "go and kill herself."
