It is time to take back America…Or destroy it.
Welcome to Trump’s America: 87 reports of people bullied by emboldened bigots — and the list is growing
First Lady-elect Melania Trump wants to stop bullying, but children all over America are being bullied today because of her husband.
“We must find better ways to honor and support the basic goodness of our children, especially in social media,” Mrs. Trump said at a Pennsylvania rally last week. “It will be one of the main focuses of my work, if I am privileged enough to become your first lady.”
Ironically, the International Bullying Prevention Association conference took place during the first part of this week and during Election Day.
“We know that traditional bullying results in higher rates of anxiety and depression and even higher risks of suicidal ideation and lower self-esteem and the research shows that we’re seeing similar impacts from cyber-bullying as well. It’s most likely to be harmful when there is that mixed harassment of bullying and cyber-bullying that occur together,” IBPA president Patricia Agatston said.
In a single day, Raw Story has reported on three cases of pro-Trump related bullying of students. The first occurred when students in Minnesota were greeted with “F*ck n*ggers” written on their door. A Michigan middle school had a small group of childrenchanting “build that wall,” while their fellow students, who are Latino, were crying. Another school, this one in Pennsylvania, had students marching with Donald Trump signs while chanting “white power.” We also covered a story of Trump supporters, who filmed themselves driving through Wellesley College, Hillary Clinton’s alma mater and harassing black students. George Zimmerman was also kicked out of a bar for calling someone a “n*gger lover,” though he wasn’t embolden by Trump. That’s just who he is.
Yesterday, we covered a south Philly neighborhood subjected to Nazi graffiti. A Utah man told a neighbor boy, “get out of here n*gger” — then attacked the boy’s dad with stun cane.
While there have not been many of these, there are incidents of anti-Trump violence. In the case of a Los Angeles school, Trump supporters were attacked and one principal is on leave after anti-Trump attacks. Another with anti-Trump protesters in College Park. Another man was also robbed and assaulted.
Thus far Melania Trump has not commented on any of these incidents.
Unfortunately, there have been so many of these stories we decided to begin compiling a list of them here:
Here’s a tweet from a young black student who captured a white boy calling him “a n*gger” and said that he “should be pickin’ cotton.”
