    Trumpís words, bullied kids, scarred schools

    Since Trump's rise to the nation’s highest office, his inflammatory language — often condemned as racist and xenophobic — has seeped into schools across America. Many bullies now target other children differently than they used to, with kids as young as 6 mimicking the president’s insults and the cruel way he delivers them.

    Trump’s words, those chanted by his followers at campaign rallies and even his last name have been wielded by students and school staff members to harass children more than 300 times since the start of 2016, a Washington Post review of 28,000 news stories found. At least three-quarters of the attacks were directed at kids who are Hispanic, black or Muslim, according to the analysis. Students have also been victimized because they support the president — more than 45 times during the same period.

    Although many hateful episodes garnered coverage just after the election, The Post found that Trump-connected persecution of children has never stopped. Even without the huge total from November 2016, an average of nearly two incidents per school week have been publicly reported over the past four years. Still, because so much of the bullying never appears in the news, The Post’s figure represents a small fraction of the actual total. It also doesn’t include the thousands of slurs, swastikas and racial epithets that aren’t directly linked to Trump but that the president’s detractors argue his behavior has exacerbated.

    It's actually good news.

    At least the brats aren't bringing in guns.

    More Washington Post propaganda.

    IMO the only people who are actually leaning towards totalitarian thought, are those who feed on and wholeheartedly believe this moral panic effort to demonize anyone they don't agree with.

    Someone dares to disagree with your viewpoint? They must be a Nazi!

    What do you do when you find a Nazi? Punch them!

    The real hate speech, IMHO comes from purveyors of ideas and narratives like the author of this WaPO "article." :

    If I stop responding it doesn't mean I've conceded the point or agree with you. It only means I've made my point and I don't mind you having the last word. Please wait a few minutes before "quoting" me. I often correct errors for a minute or two after I post before the final product is ready.

    The NYT will be doing a feature story soon that Trump has caused dogs and cats to fight!
    It's quite a troubling story. Just think about it... Dogs and cats fighting. Oh the humanity!
    Attorney General William Barr: ďThe fact of the matter is that, in waging a scorched earth, no-holds-barred war of 'Resistance' against this Administration,
    it is the Left that is engaged in the systematic shredding of norms and the undermining of the rule of law.Ē

    Did you notice that part about kids being bullied because they support the President (so by Trump haters) still being Trumpís fault?

    Yes indeed. Its foolish to think demagogues only bring out violence from one side.
