American Children Are Using Trump's Words To Bully Classmates

American children are using Trump's words to bully classmates, report finds

Children across the US are using Donald Trump's rhetoric to bully their classmates, a report has found.

The Washington Post reviewed articles throughout Mr Trump's presidency that reference elementary, middle, or high school bullying and found students using the president's inflammatory statements, which are often described as racist or xenophobic, to bully.

The newspaper analysed 28,000 articles starting from the beginning of 2016 for its research relating to bullying in the classroom. It found Mr Trump's words, chants at his campaign rallies, and even his last name were used by students and staff members to harass other people in more than 300 reported incidents.

Of those incidents, 75 per cent showed inflammatory language relating to Mr Trump directed at students who are Hispanic, Muslim or black.

Bullying incidents cited by the Post in connection with Mr. Trump's rhetoric included what Cielo Castor, a Mexican American college student, experienced when attending Kamiakin High in Kennewick, Washington.

Ms Castor told the publication she felt personally bullied by classmates after she expressed her disapproval for the president, which influenced one student to refuse to sit next to her during class.

Then at a football game students unrolled a "Make America Great Again" flag and chanted "Build The Wall" from the stadium. Hispanic students at Ms Castor's school organised a walkout in protest against the racial problems exhibited by classmates. During the walkout, Ms Castor walked by a white male student who said: "Look, it's one of those f***ing Mexicans."

Another bullying incident occurred in June 2019 in New Jersey when a 13-year-old boy told his Mexican American classmate, 12, that "all Mexicans should go back behind the wall". The classmate's mother approached the bully the next day about his comment and was beaten unconscious by the child.

The Washington Post is not the only publication to research if Mr Trump's rhetoric has trickled down into the schools.

Buzzfeed News previously analysed the impact of Mr Trump's words on bullying and found 50 incidents across 26 states where students used popular phrases coined by the president.

One incident happened at a high school in Shakopee, Minnesota, where boys in Donald Trump shirts swarmed a black teenage girl and sang The Star-Spangled Banner. But instead of singing the correct lyrics, they replaced the closing line with "and home of the slaves".

While on a school bus in San Antonio, Texas, a white eighth grader told a Filipino classmate, "You are going to be deported." A black classmate in Brea, California, was told by a white eighth grader, "Now that Trump won, you're going to have to go back to Africa, where you belong.”

Claims Mr Trump could be influencing bullying behaviour and racist or xenophobic rhetoric between classmates comes as First Lady Melania Trump has made anti-bullying one of her initiatives while at the White House. The first lady launched her "Be Best" campaign in May 2018. The platform has a broad scope, but included is anti-bullying and cyberbullying objectives. Mrs Trump has never commented on her husband's alleged bullying behaviour.

Remembering History....Hilter Used the Children as well to sway the people and get control......Left seems to be following down that same road.....Just one problem....We on the Right Side Still have the Guns and it just might mean the rail road cars are loaded differently this go around........I really think the Left should stop pushing for another conflict they have no chance of winning.

It is probably true but that article is intended to incite and produce more acrimony between the races imo. 

 

Both Parties are playing the race card to fire up their base to go vote.   It plays to peoples anger and insecurities.  It’s very divisive and it’s not going to go away because it works.  It’s just another form of mudslinging.

I am not fired up to vote based on anyone or any party using a race card. I am motivated by which party wants to

take away things I have worked hard for and want to keep.

To Defeat Trump, Virginia Dems Give State’s Electoral Votes Away. Ted Cruz Gives Them A Constitutional Lesson.

In an astonishingly partisan move, the Virginia House of Delegates, which has a majority of Democrats, voted to disenfranchise their voters by deciding to give their entire state’s presidential electoral votes to whomever wins the popular vote.

 

The move was likely prompted by Virginia Democrats’ assumption that just as President Trump lost the popular vote on 2016, he might do so again, and thus their bill, House Bill 177, would hand the state’s votes to his Democratic challenger.

Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) who is one of the great constitutional scholars of the Senate, fired back at the high-handed tactics of the Virginia Democrats and their blithe rejection of the ideals for which the American Founders stood, tweeting, “VA House votes to give all of Virginia’s votes to California & New York. Because that’s definitely in the interest of Virginians. Jefferson & Madison would be appalled.”

The bill passed in the Virginia House 51-46 and is now headed for the Virginia Senate, where Democrats also hold a majority, and then on to Democratic Governor Ralph Northam. As The Hill reported, “Virginia would subsequently be entered into the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact.”

The bill’s summary asserts, “Under the compact, Virginia agrees to award its electoral votes to the presidential ticket that receives the most popular votes in all 50 states and the District of Columbia. The compact goes into effect when states cumulatively possessing a majority of the electoral votes have joined the compact … A state may withdraw from the compact; however, a withdrawal occurring within six months of the end of a President’s term shall not become effective until a President or Vice President has qualified to serve the next term.”

15 states and Washington, D.C., have joined the compact,  National Popular Vote reports. The Hill notes, “A group of states possessing 74 electoral votes would need to join the agreement in order for the compact to take effect.”

Article 2, Section 1 of the U.S. Constitution reads:

The executive Power shall be vested in a President of the United States of America. He shall hold his Office during the Term of four Years, and, together with the Vice President, chosen for the same Term, be elected, as follows: Each State shall appoint, in such Manner as the Legislature thereof may direct, a Number of Electors, equal to the whole Number of Senators and Representatives to which the State may be entitled in the Congress …

The Electors shall meet in their respective States, and vote by Ballot for two Persons, of whom one at least shall not be an Inhabitant of the same State with themselves. And they shall make a List of all the Persons voted for, and of the Number of Votes for each; which List they shall sign and certify, and transmit sealed to the Seat of the Government of the United States….The Person having the greatest Number of Votes shall be the President, if such Number be a Majority of the whole Number of Electors appointed …

As Allan Gulezo wrote in National Affairs in 2018 in a comprehensive piece defending the Electoral College, “This method was slightly altered by the 12th Amendment in 1804, but only slightly, and we have elected presidents in the same way ever since. There is no mention whatsoever of a popular vote, at any level.”

So just over 1% of the articles referenced pertain to Trump yet the headline fools people into believing it is the main cause... a reporter would have dug up what was the most prevalent cause instead of feeding a weak narrative to those they are leading down the Hate Trump path...they know that a lot of people just read the headlines, don't take time to read the articles...
