Today, the Department of Health and Human Services has issued another of its mass emails on behalf of stopping cyberbullying:
Cyberbullying, which happens online, can hurt feelings and damage relationships, and it is increasing with emerging technologies. One-click access to the Internet makes it that much more dangerous for kids.
Marci Hertz is a health scientist with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
“It can happen 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.”
The email recommends that readers check out stopbullying.gov, the government website set up specifically to teach about the dangers of bullying.
Only one problem. As we’ve been reporting, the Obama administration’s anti-bullying efforts are closely linked to those of the It Gets Better Project, founded and led by Dan Savage. The same Dan Savage who recently called Christian high school students “pansy-assed” for walking out on his bigoted, obscene anti-religious harangue at a journalism event.
The StopBullying.gov website carries an endorsement for It Gets Better by Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius. It also carries an endorsement by President Obama. And one from the Department of Justice Civil Rights Division.
And yet the founder of the It Gets Better Project is one of the most effective cyberbullies on the web. He’s the guy who created the Santorum google bomb designed to turn Rick Santorum’s name into an obscene term. He’s the guy who then threatened to turn Santorum’s first name, Rick, into an obscene term via Google bomb. He has done the same with the term “Saddlebacking” in order to target Rick Warren’s Saddleback Church for supporting the pro-traditional marriage Proposition 8.
So the Obama administration’s anti-bullying partner is one of the world’s more successful cyberbullies. The Obama administration clearly doesn’t care about bullying, so long as the victims of the bullying are conservatives.
