MORE ON BULLYING AND OTHER THINGS

This past Friday, my post was on bullying, the new liberal crime. I indicated that bullying is going the way of racism. It’s a heinous act that should definitely be punished and the definition changes according to what the liberals want it to be at the time. While my Friday post concentrated on childhood bullying, I’m going to take this post a little farther into childhood bullying and also talk some about adult bullying because it does exist.
The liberals have done their best to take God out of our society and have instigated all of this sensitivity related bull crap. We have anger management, cultural sensitivity, sexual harassment, etc. Thanks to liberals, most schools and workplaces have zero tolerance for insensitivity.

Bullies are aggressive individuals and may need to exercise that aggression to let off steam at times. Of course, they shouldn’t let off steam against another person and make that other person uncomfortable. The liberals, of course, have a solution to this, anger management classes. Instead of telling a person that he or she has to control his or her temper and if he or she makes another student, employee, etc. cry, then he or she will be written up with the possibility of termination. The threat of losing a job will probably whip that person into shape.

We didn’t have to deal with all of this BS until the Clinton presidency in the nineties and political correctness became “in vogue.” Someone loses their temper, they need to be sent to anger management. It was suddenly decided, even though thirty years had elapsed after the signing of the Civil Rights bill, we needed sensitivity training programs because of cultural differences between many groups, including, but not limited to blacks and whites. And let’s not forget sexual harassment training. That’s the only training that I had to go through and again, it was BS. Practice a little common sense and decency and you should be fine.

At one point, I was walking out of the building and into the parking lot with my Vice President, who had lost quite a bit of weight through hard work and dedication. I told William that he was really looking great. And then I remembered my sexual harassment training. Did I cross the line? Why can’t I tell someone that they look good, especially when they had been working hard at it?

How is this related to bullying? With all of our political correctness and making everyone a victim of some kind, the liberals can then control a substantial portion of our lives. The liberals make the bullied a victim who doesn’t have to face his tormentors and therefore becomes week and helpless, a liberal’s dream.

Whether the child is successful or not, having to face the playground bully makes you stronger and will serve to better prepare the child for challenges he or she is sure to face as an adult. While no parent wants their child to be sad or afraid, making the child go on that field trip or to that class party where he or she may be bullied is not such a bad thing for the child. On the other hand, now that God has been taken out of our society, and Judeo Christian principles are no longer valued and taught, bullies are now crossing the line and a child could get seriously hurt and in an extreme case could die.

Bullying, though, doesn’t stop on the playground or in the gym class, it carries on into adulthood. Adult bullies are probably not going to steal someone’s clothes out of their gym locker or give someone a wedgie, they can intimidate and make life miserable. And most of us, including myself, have had to deal with them. In most instances, when dealing with an adult bully, you can give it right back to them and they will back off. You have to be careful, though, if the bully’s your boss. Depending upon other circumstances, you can choose to look for another job. If the bully is a friend, you can end the friendship.

So much focusing on the bullied child and making him or her a victim is not preparing our young people for the difficulties they will face as adults. As a result, they will become weak adults and more likely to become dependent upon the government.

With taking God out of our society, people have nothing to depend on, so the government becomes their god, their savior, and their provider. God tests and will continue to test his followers while the government doesn’t even want to test welfare recipients. God takes care of his followers and promises them eternal life when their time on earth has ended. Is government always going to be there for those dependent on it? I think we know the answer to that.
The liberals have spear-headed taking God out of our society and have implemented various forms of political correctness. All of the stuff they do has one goal in mind. I’ve said it many times, and will continue to say it many more times. This is all about controlling every aspect of our lives as they possible can. Everything they do eventually comes down to it.

Before the invention of gun powder, those inclined to be physically strong overcame those who were physically weaker. The invention of gun powder served to further equalize the difference between the weak and strong. The weak now had a weapon that they could use against the strong. Now the liberals are desirous of taking our guns away from us so that equalizer no longer exists and creates additional weak individuals dependent upon government.
While the liberals want to have a zero-tolerance policy on bullying, they are also promoting the taking away of a great equalizer between the strong and the weak.

BULLYING-THE NEW LIBERAL CRIME

Bullying is not new. In fact, it’s been taking place since the beginning of time, and in our imperfect world, it will continue to take place until the end of time or whenever we’re all turned into milquetoasts and the government has complete control over us.

During the last seven or eight years, bullying, as bad behavior, has gone the way of racism. It’s held out by the liberals as an inexcusable crime and whoever is guilty of it should be demonized and, if possible, destroyed. While you can’t, as of now, give the death penalty to someone who is guilty of bullying or racism, their lives can certainly be ruined in various ways. As I’ve said many times, liberals change the definition of racism on a dime and we unenlightened oafs must fall in line. If we slip up and plead ignorance to the definition or racism at that moment, we’re not excused. The tolerant left seems to be doing the same for the definition of bullying.

When we think of bullying, out thoughts generally move toward school children. There are the bullies, there are those who are being bullied, there are those who, while not actual bullies, are on the side of the bullies, and there are those who take the side and stand with the bullied. It’s wrong and as we were growing up, we knew it was wrong. Our parent told us it was wrong, we learned in Sunday School that it was wrong, and our school teachers told us that it was wrong. This was before God was taken completely out of our schools and out of our lives. Children who were disadvantaged were often bullied by “advantaged” children. A child might be bullied because he or she wasn’t physically attractive or perhaps because he or she came from a poor family. And yes, a lot of children who were physically and mentally challenged were bullied.

Before God was taken out of our schools, children were bullied. Back in the day, though, kids were made to go to Sunday school and church, made to listen to devotionals at school, and were disciplined by their parents and teachers. Sure, the kids didn’t listen and often made fun of church and devotionals. However, I firmly believe that even though kids were rejecting these teachings, Judeo Christian principles that were taught to them slipped through the cracks in their brains and kept these school bullies from “going to far.” When God was still very much present in our society, victim children might have water or food thrown at them, they might be embarrassed in ways, they might have had their clothes hidden while they were in the shower during gym class, but I don’t remember any situations where anyone was physically maimed for life. Some children may have been taunted to the point that they carried grudges into adulthood; but again, this pales in comparison to what we often see on the news today.

So many people, on the left and on the right, have come out against bullying. Parents are given guidelines in order to determine if their child is a victim of bullying. Children are told to report any types of bullying they observe. Also, victims are told to report any bullying to their teachers and parents. The victim, the victim, the victim. That’s all we hear about.

How about the bully? What if it’s your “little darlin” that’s the bully. He or she needs their butt worn out. But wait, we can’t do that anymore, can we? Maybe parents need some guidelines so they can determine if their child is a bully.

If a child is a bully, that’s not good, either. That child could very well have issues as he or she grows up and gets into the real world. The child bully could very well have issues in interacting with other people in an adult environment and could potentially have problems holding a job, problems in relationships, problems in marriage, and problems raising his or her children. That bully could also become a lawbreaker and end up in jail.

The speaker, one evening, at a service club to which I belong, was some kind of social worker and spoke on bullying. The program, of course, was all about the victim. During the question and answer session I posed the question, shouldn’t a parent also look for signs that their child may be doing the bullying and if he or she is, wear their butt out? The speaker, who looked like her hair had never seen the likes of a brush or comb, who had obviously never heard of make-up, and who had obviously never been taught how to dress properly, said to me, “Oh, we don’t advocate the wearing out of butts. Yes, that can be an issue.” She was clearly caught off guard.

In focusing on the victim, only, we’re not cutting off the head of the snake. We’re not properly dealing with the problem; instead, we’re creating a society composed of victims and aggressors, who in time, will also be considered victims. In other words, we’re continuing to create a society of misfits where bad behavior will continue to be excused because of trauma experienced as a child.

Maybe this is what the tolerant left wants in their quest to control every aspect of our lives they possibly can. As we continue on this planet, more and more victims are created and with all these victims who are not strong enough to exist on their own, the left has a perfect opportunity to swoop down on these unfortunates and give them a place at the government trough.

I’ve witnessed bullying in all forms and I’m sure you have too. In many instances to date, God has judged and dealt punishment. With God, there are no coincidences.
