Permission to be the Bully

Perhaps part of the problem in America right now, is the resident of 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. has given all the bullies in America permission to be a bully too.

Don’t like someone’s skin color?  Be the bully

Don’t like a woman who won’t tolerate sexual assault? Be the bully.

Don’t like people fleeing violence to save their families?  Be the bully.

Don’t like disabled people? Make fun of them…be the bully.

You probably see where I’m going with this. My father taught me many years ago when I was in elementary school, that if someone is a bully, they are really just a scared little kid on the inside. They can’t handle someone not liking them, or not doing what “they” want them to do, so they threaten out of their own fear and lack of self-esteem.

What is most disconcerting about all of this “bully behavior” from the White House, is that it clearly reflects a fascist agenda. Yep, I’m talking Hitler! Read your history book. The tweets from the White House could easily come straight out of any random Nazi handbook. Stephen Miller might agree. The president will deny that of course, maybe even call me a name or discount me in some way. No matter. His opinion of me is none of my business.

So what’s my point?

If you and I don’t stand up to this bully, this scared little kid who is out of control…only God knows what will happen next!

I’m standing up to this bully. Are you?
