Bullying is a huge cause for the progressive left, and they have put forth their usual array of “solutions” to the problem of bullying; such as talking to each other about how bullying is bad, sending social workers into schools to lecture kids that bullying is bad, wearing ribbons to raise “bullying awareness,” and making lots and lots of simpering YouTube Videos. Most of this is intended not to put an end to bullying but to allow progressive leftists to posture sanctimoniously about how much they care about the issue of bullying.
That doesn’t stop bullying. This does.
Naturally, the school punished the kid who stopped the bullying, because that’s what leftist ninnies do. And they justified the punishment by issuing the usual Public Education nonsense:
‘Huntington Beach High School firmly believes that all students are afforded an opportunity to learn in a safe and secure environment. Because of this, safety is the highest priority,’ the statement said. ‘Huntington Beach High School has a very strong anti-bullying code of conduct and will not condone this type of behavior from any student.’
Leftists punish soldiers in Afghanistan for trying to stop child rape, and they punish football players here at home for defending weaker students from bullies. What the hell is wrong with our country?
