Anti-bullying hero bullies conference of school children

posted at 11:46 am on April 28, 2012 by Jazz Shaw

Barack Obama and Joe Biden may be having second thoughts about assigning Dan Savage as their de facto “Anti-Bullying Czar” this year. According to Fox News, the sex advice columnist – Savage Love – and gay rights activist who founded It Gets Better seems to either have a hard time understanding the definition of bullying or has some serious issues with irony.

Really? So you picked a raunchy sex advice columnist who publishes a column called “Savage Love” as your ambassador to help out at risk children. What could possibly go wrong? Well, here’s what can possibly go wrong.

As many as 100 high school students walked out of a national journalism conference after an anti-bullying speaker began cursing, attacked the Bible and reportedly called those who refused to listen to his rant “pansy asses.” …

Savage was supposed to be delivering a speech about anti-bullying at the National High School Journalism Conference sponsored by the Journalism Education Association and the National Scholastic Press Association. But it turned into an episode of Christian-bashing.

Rick Tuttle, the journalism advisor for Sutter Union High School in California, was among several thousand people in the audience. He said they thought the speech was one thing – but it turned into something else.

“I thought this would be about anti-bullying,” Tuttle told Fox news. “It turned into a pointed attack on Christian beliefs.”

Tuttle said a number of his students were offended by Savage’s remarks – and some decided to leave the auditorium.

“It became hostile,” he said. “It felt hostile as we were sitting in the audience – especially towards Christians who espouse beliefs that he was literally taking on.”

The speaker, in a supposed attempt to encourage young people to behave in a civil fashion toward each other, immediately launches into a diatribe against Christian values. When some of the students – particularly a few of the young ladies – become offended, he berates them and engages in hostile name calling. This is the keystone of the anti-bullying campaign?

For anyone to be shocked by this outcome, you’d either have to be completely ignorant about the author’s history or … well… have a job at the White House, I suppose. For just one brief sample of the aforementioned “Savage Love” wisdom, click here. But before you do, I have to warn you… the language in this column is absolutely not safe for work and not appropriate for children to read. Also, if you are easily offended, don’t read it either. (Or at least don’t say I didn’t warn you.) I will not be reprinting any of the quotables here today.

UPDATE: (Jazz) I won’t embed it here because of the NSFW language, but if you want to watch Savage’s speech (along with all of the Christian students walking out) you can do so here. Link provided via Twitter by Ningrim.

But wait! We have located what is likely the primary source material Dan Savage used in developing this program. Watch the video and be amazed.

Gawd, I am soooooo sick of hearing every single hour of every single day about bullying and homosexuals.

On a percentage basis, I am willing to bet, there are no more bullies nor any more homosexuals than there ever have been since the beginning of mankind.

This guy is a hack, STFU already.

or … well… have a job at the White House,

Question #2—Has ANYONE that works for this administration EVER had a real job?

Dan Savage is very good as an advice columnist, but his politics are terrible, so when he gets on the topic of politics or religion, all he does is shoot himself in the foot.

Obama just was trying to co-opt some of this guy’s “cool” factor and now it blew up in his face.

Typical leftist. This is how these robots always reflect Christians and patriotic Americans. But it is simply hilarious that the one guy who wraps himself in an ‘anti-bully’ blanket has morphed into the biggest bullying thug yet.

How in the name of all that is holy does the PBHO Administration manage to install human trash in almost every single position, I seriously don’t understand. Maybe I’m just too much of an old fashioned rube.

You want to deal with bullying, teach your kids to respect themselves, stand up for themselves, and be willing to throw down if necessary. And if the school makes a stink about it, stand up for your kids.

Come on, now. I read Savage back in the 90′s in the alt-newspapers, and his advice was always geared around some person’s whacked out fetish.

And I’m not so sure it was the cool factor, as it was he’s a borderline sociopath that, if not appeased, was going to make holy hell on Barry for not federalizing ghey mirage his first month.

An ant-bully-ing spokesman who is a bully and denigrates, reviles and (let’s face it) BULLIES CHILDREN who have the courage to stand up to the bullying.
What is more difficult for a teen than standing up, in front of their peers, and walking out of something? Those children are HEROES!

This is so 1984 it’s stunning.

You forgot the sarcasm tag.

The homosexual lifestyle is at least as dangerous as the smoking & unhealthful eating that Dems want to ban, but they–& especially Savage–promote it.

Homosexuals have higher rates of domestic violence.

Homosexuals have higher rates of STDs.

Homosexuals have higher rates of sex-related injuries.

Homosexuals have higher rates of mental illness.*

Homosexuals have higher rates of suicide.*

Homosexuals have lower life expectancy.

.

* “That’s because they’re persecuted!”
Lots of groups are harassed in one way or another (illegal aliens, Muslims, Christians, atheists, Asians, etc) but have no corresponding higher rates of suicide or mental illness.

Asan aside I find it richly ironic that the NBA has joined the “don’t use the word gay to mean anything negative” campaign considering that Kobe Bryant called a ref a “f*cking f*ggot” last year and was only fined, when players have been suspended for less.

Client Number Nine on April 28, 2012 at 12:21 PM

How far we’ve fallen that filth like this is allowed near the White House, much more is part of the administration.

I’m old enough to remember how Reagan would never loosen his tie in the Oval Office because he considered it disrespectful of the office.

Yep, that’s what I was feeling. Savage is showing he has an ulterior motive. I’m guessing he feels safe about it because the cause is on the edge of becoming a lapel.

Damn, Chicago produces a massive amount of scumbags.

I’m stunned that the National Scholastic Press Association supported the speaker and released its “too bad some people were offended” response.

I’ve developed a new respect for the creators of South Park (Trey Parker & Matt Stone.) Andrew Breitbart & Mark Ebner interviewd them for the book Hollywood Interrupted.
Trey Parker said, “South Park was based on our hatred & loathing for Hollywood.” And- “People in the middle of the country do not matter AT ALL to the entertainment people in LA and New York. People in the entertainment industry are by and large whore-chasing drug addict f-ups. But they still believe they’re better than the guy in Wyoming who really loves his wife and takes care of his kids and is a good, outstanding, wholesome person. Hollywood views regular people as children, and they need to tell the idiots out there how to be.”

It will be interesting to see what the Obama admin does with this.
He was representing them after all.
Will they apologize and correct him
or will they throw him out
or will they agree with him
or will they blame someone else
or will they be too afraid of him to do anything?
Place your bets.

Deanna on April 28, 2012 at 12:29 PM

In NC, we’re getting ready to vote on Amendment 1. The measure would define marriage in the state constitution as between one man and one woman, and would ban any other type of “domestic legal union” such as civil unions and domestic partnerships. You can’t swing a dead cat around here without seeing a yard sign that’s either for or against it. I’ve actually been considering voting against it, mainly because I think it’s a display of too much government power. If they’d have left domestic and civil unions alone I’d be more inclined towards it.

Unfortunately for homosexuals and their overt supporters, they are going way over the top. Instead of trying to show others that they’re people just like everyone else and are no threat–they loudly berate people and their beliefs. That’s the wrong way to build support for something. The gay cause has advanced over the years because more and more people are working with and hanging around homosexuals in their everyday lives, not because of hysterics.

It’s incredible how many posts I’ve seen on Facebook entitled with something similar to “Amendment One: To My Christian Friends.” Then the post goes on to explain how homosexuals are no threat to Christianity. Now Dan Savage has given those people on the fence the perfect ammunition to respond to these posts. Savage and others are shooting themselves in the foot.

I really don’t think the people who run the progressive movement really care about gay rights, global warming, abortion, etc., but they are useful causes to use in order to achieve something they really love…communism. They just can’t come out and say, “We think Stalin was wonderful”….

The goal is to convince straight, Christian teens, particularly those with conservative values that they are the strange ducks, the misfits that must conform to the the new value system.

It’s kind of like telling beauty queens that they are the ugly ones who must try to look like Debbie Wasserman-Schultz to conform.

bw222 on April 28, 2012 at 12:36 PM

I don’t see how bullying can be on the increase in our government run schools. How is this possible? I mean, come on, we kicked God out of our schools, we’ve replaced real subjects with classes on self-esteem and multiculturalism while at the same time installed zero tolerance and anti-bullying policies throughout our education system. How schools should be a haven of peace and tranquility.

Yeah.. after I resigned from social services a few years back, I was fortunate to get a long term substitute position in a local middle school. I attended an anti-bullying assembly where the principle ( a great guy by the way) basically told the students that if they are attacked, they have to fall into a fetal position or they will be as guilty as the attacker. Of course, if a teacher is attacked by a student, you won’t see the teacher doing that.

We are ignoring basic human nature and the basic laws of nature here. The best way to stop a thug is to be prepared to fight back. I have always told my students in Karate class…. you don’t have to win a fight to be the victor. You don’t have to be bigger than the other guy either… you just have to make them realize even if they might “win”… will it be worth the cost. Let them know there will be a price to pay for their so called victory. Maybe some thug at school will want to take you on once, that doesn’t mean they’ll want to do it again.. once they realize the price they paid for getting the best of you wasn’t all that worth it.

When I was in school… that’s how it was. We had fights at school… the guy who started it was the guy in trouble. The teachers knew who the trouble makers were and it didn’t matter who swung punches all that mattered was who started it first. Now, both the attacker and the victim are punished.. and if the attacker as a mental health diagnosis.. they don’t get punished at all. No wonder there’s a problem… the stupid schools, the administrators and the Education system and the politicians are the ones creating it. Everyone else has to lay on the floor in the fetal position.

When my older brother was about 13, and this would have been about 1963, he was overweight and this one snotty kid that everyone hated, taunted him all the time. My dad taught my brother that there were some mean people in the world and if he needed to stand up for himself, to do it. My brother came home one day with a black eye and all dusted up because he finally had enough. The bully never taunted him again and my dad was so proud of my brother. But that was back in the day when bullying meant all kinds of bullying. Now it means you can’t say anything negative about gays or their lifestyle.

TxAnn56 on April 28, 2012 at 12:38 PM

This is what made me really hate the Clinton Administration. It was the constant in your face of his programs. And his own moral superiority that he pushed. What drives the left crazy during republicrat administrations is that they can’t enforce the “get in your face” stuff they so enjoy. Love Bush or not (and I’m not a fan of the man) he never tried to turn his morality into federal rules. The One, of course, is a lot worse than the Chief Groper. Frankly, I’ll vote for Romney just to make these people crawl back under their rocks for the next four to eight years, where they can squeal their displeasure.

Homosexual’s are like the unions… they’ve worn out their welcome with their constant whining. And it’s not the fault of the average gay guy or girl. It’s the fault of the bread and butter, radical, leftist agenda of the movement’s leaders. We accept the gay culture, but we are tired to death of hearing all the squealing.

Not really, where is their a direct command from god to kill gays in bible? It says they will go to hell, probably yes, but if you don’t believe in the bible why would you care what Christians say. No mainstream Christian organization is calling for gays to be hunted down and killed by their followers.

Islam yes, they actually do kill gays on a regular bases, but why did Savage not talk about that? Because it does not help the progressive agenda, which is why this whole thing is a farce. Savage is not fighting for gay rights, he is just a propagandist fighting for a political movement that will destroy freedom and liberty in this country.

William Eaton on April 28, 2012 at 12:45 PM

My isn’t he brave taking on a bunch of kids, mostly girls, and calling them names.

Way to speak truth to power there Bucko!

And his justification seems to be that because he or someone else was once bullied he gets to do the same to anyone who disagrees with him. Classic bully behavior and rationalization ploy.

If there was anyone ever in need of a bully beatdown, this guy is it.

I really believe that most gays want to just be left alone. Leave it to the activists on their side to stir up the crap. It is guys like him and the people that try to shove their lifestyle on us that earn my disfavor (gay pride parades). It is always been a God thing with these haters because they know that if they can take God out of the conversation, they get their way. You can not tell me that there is no other way for gays to have the same rights married couples have other than to screw up the sanctity of the marriage union between a man and woman. Nope they just want to jam their lifestyle in Gods face. Where were these anti bully creeps when I was getting the snot kicked out of me for being a fat boy. I grew up and came out of it relatively well. Maybe that is the point, these boneheads don’t want to grow up.

Your book wants you to kill innocent people for a million idiotic reasons and I’m the hateful one?

lester on April 28, 2012 at 12:37 PM

Not hateful; just stupid.

bw222 on April 28, 2012 at 12:39 PM

Both. They’re not mutually exclusive, y’know.

whatcat on April 28, 2012 at 12:46 PM

Lester dear, would the brave sir savage have dared, have dared, to say the same about the koran?

Marcus on April 28, 2012 at 12:39 PM

I don’t see the point or how that is relevant. What do you mean? If Savage says that Koran is bullshit Christians would agree that Bible is bullshit too? We’re not in Saudi Arabia. Why should we be talking about Koran?

lester on April 28, 2012 at 12:47 PM

So, this ADULT starts calling kids name that don’t agree with him? This is the ‘anti-bullying’ leader we are supposed to respect?

MunDane68 on April 28, 2012 at 12:07 PM

Leftist victim groups don’t think it is bullying if the deem you a “bigot.” Then it is “intolerance of intolerance” or some other progressive BS…

melle1228 on April 28, 2012 at 12:47 PM

So the vile Savage does what the vile Savage does. Utterly predictable.

The real question: Why was he chosen to speak to high school kids?

The National Scholastic Press Association and the Journalism Education Association sponsored this debacle. Those organizations have allegedly issued a joint press release. Judging by the excerpts I have seen, it amounts to a passive voice non-apology in which they take no responsibility.

But I have seen only excerpts. For a press release, it isn’t easily found on the web, at least, I couldn’t find it. You would think a web search with relevant terms would bring it right up. It is as if those two organization are hiding the so-called “press release”. Go figure.

Time for these two organizations to be held to account.

Anyone have a link to the press release?

I was half expecting him to break out singing Jesus Jones. Talk about being trapped in a time warp.

OliverB on April 28, 2012 at 12:38 PM

Violent Fems is probably more his speed.

Joe Mama on April 28, 2012 at 12:41 PM

Yes, and he still thinks that bullies listen to Huey Lewis.

OliverB on April 28, 2012 at 12:48 PM

Hey Bill Eaton…you had a really nice post above but can you remmeber the next time to capitilize the B in Bible……Thanks

crosshugger on April 28, 2012 at 12:49 PM

You do realize that because other people might be hateful that doesn’t make you not hateful. This is known as a fallacious argument. I tend to see you use such arguments on a very regular basis.

I think it is very clear you are a sad little person filled with hate.

CW on April 28, 2012 at 12:40 PM

I think you can’t actually point out why I’m hateful. In the meantime you do subscribe to a book full of hate. Seems like I have proof, while you are imagining things.

lester on April 28, 2012 at 12:49 PM

This is what made me really hate the Clinton Administration. It was the constant in your face of his programs. And his own moral superiority that he pushed. What drives the left crazy during republicrat administrations is that they can’t enforce the “get in your face” stuff they so enjoy

deadite on April 28, 2012 at 12:38 PM

That’s a great summation.

Savage really does personify everything wrong with progressive movements. It’s never about only about what they claim.

He has a new show on MTV that started at the beginning of the month. I’m wondering what the ratings are, and if he’s been purposely making noise for the attention.

Come back when you have actually read the Bible and not googled bits and pieces.

If Savage says that Koran is bullshit Christians would agree that Bible is bullshit too? We’re not in Saudi Arabia. Why should we be talking about Koran?

lester on April 28, 2012 at 12:47 PM

You know what if you stood up the point might hit you in the head. Savage was invited to talk about BULLYING. He shouldn’t have been talking about the Koran or the Bible.

melle1228 on April 28, 2012 at 12:50 PM

Just watched the video. I generally agree with Savage’s points, but it’s entirely inappropriate in a public high school. I couldn’t imagine someone being allowed to extoll the virtues of biblical morality in that setting, so why tolerate the opposite?

Client Number Nine on April 28, 2012 at 12:51 PM

We’re not in Saudi Arabia. Why should we be talking about Koran?

lester on April 28, 2012 at 12:47 PM

Because there are Muslims in America?

Bishop on April 28, 2012 at 12:51 PM

Can we stop referring to this wasted pile of DNA as “a sex advice columnist and gay rights activist?” He the result of the militant homosexual crusade to not just ask society to tolerate homosexuality, but to make it criminal to object to it.

Gay used to mean “happy” when I was a kid. This sack of excrement is the unhappiest person I’ve ever seen in public.

TugboatPhil on April 28, 2012 at 12:51 PM

Dan Savage & Excitable Andy kinda “bully” each other, too. And they’re proud of it.

BCrago66 on April 28, 2012 at 12:51 PM

Christian: I’m so offended I’m not allowed to kill gays I’m going to walk out!!

lester on April 28, 2012 at 12:34 PM

Where, in all of the New Testament, is there anything even remotely calling for violence against others? Just one citation. Just one. One. C’mon. Just one.

John the Libertarian on April 28, 2012 at 12:53 PM

What I understand about liberal beliefs because of this video—

It is impossible to bully a Christian child.

Homosexuals have something important to say just because they are homosexuals.

dirtseller on April 28, 2012 at 12:54 PM

It’s a crying shame that liberals have, once again, co-opted a valid problem to push their political agenda.

I’m no expert on Alinsky. Is that one of his “rules,” or just a commie habit: find a valid, painful issue, figure out a way to hitch your issue onto it and milk the crap out of it until the origial problem is forgotten about and you get what you want.

They do the same thing with dead soldiers, dead civilians, minorities etc…
