Posted on 04/27/2012 5:49:45 PM PDT by Redcat
As many as 100 high school students walked out of a national journalism conference after an anti-bullying speaker began cursing, attacked the Bible and reportedly called those who refused to listen to his rant pansy asses.
The speaker was Dan Savage, founder of the It Gets Better project, an anti-bullying campaign that has reached more than 40 million viewers with contributors ranging from President Obama to Hollywood stars. Savage also writes a sex advice column called Savage Love.
Savage, and his husband, were also guests at the White House for President Obamas 2011 LGBT Pride Month reception. He was also invited to a White House anti-bullying conference.
Savage was supposed to be delivering a speech about anti-bullying at the National High School Journalism Conference sponsored by the Journalism Education Association and the National Scholastic Press Association. But it turned into an episode of Christian-bashing.

ROTFL! KMA Danny boy.
The organizers not only knew what Savage is about: they SUPPORT what he’s about. That’s why they sent out a non-apology to the attendees to shove it in their faces that “we were very pleased with all of the educational opportunities at the Seattle convention and we hope our attendees feel the same.” That’s where “journalism” is today, boys and girls.
Look at the up side...
As many as 100 high school students walked out of a national journalism conference. Smart kids.
Uh...the “conference organizers” love the “norming” influence, as it attracts more potential victims.
Seriously; his husband? No matter how much you parse it, it just sounds ridiculous
very revealing as to who the real “haters” and “intolerants” are....
I’m getting really tired of being labeled... intolerant .... while being forced
to put up with this, hmmm, stuff.
The article says that thousands were in attendance, so evidently only a relative handful walked out—and Savage hurled insults at them as they departed.
“As many as 100 high school students walked out of a national journalism conference”.
To me, it doesn’t get any “better” than that! I think a lot of high schoolers are pushing back on the whole “bullying” association with homosexuality. This year at my son’s high school, they had the usual “silence” day (support of homosexuals). The Seniors planned that day as their “skip” day. MANY of the other students suddenly had “doctor appointments, dentist appointments, sore throats, coughs... whatever and stayed home. The population of the school was dramatically decreased (and the parents cheerfully wrote absence notes).
More like his “male penis cozy”.
Yep, sounds like the others were bullied into staying.
Conservative children are bullied in schools - by their teachers and teacher's pets... No liberals are being bullied anywhere. If it happens it'll be on the front page of every newspaper. This story? It won't be covered.
Yeah...I caught that too. Must be a piece of work.
I happened to read Savage’s column once. This guy is a pervert of the highest magnitude. He must be institutionalized and treated.
This story lost me at “...and his husband.” Say no more, as those three words say it all. Lost AND angry, which is normal when one chooses a life apart from Christ.
Watch out! He might do it. It's his fantasy.
To you it's a figure of speech. To him, he'll take as an invite.
No matter how much you parse it, it just sounds ridiculous

Yes, it certainly calls for a ‘double take’.
I had to reread to make sure my ‘lyin eyes’ didn’t really see a male name attached to the first freak.
the louder they flog their cause, the more skeletons in their closet. it’s absolutely true regardless of race, creed, color, sexual preference, hair color, shoe size, whatever.
Most journalists are group-think bullies too - look how they took on and lied about Zimmerman. They stand against us - our children and our way of life. They buy ink by the trainload - and we sit in our PJ’s in front of a computer... Jerks.
The only good thing about this story is once again liberals showed their true colors. They’re NOT against bullying - they’re the bullies. They’re the thin-skinned eternal ‘victims’ who dish it out and NEVER EVER take an iota back...
Glad to know I'm not the only one that read that a few times.
“ANTI-BULLYING” = “PRO-GAY”.
I hate their stealing the words “husband” and “wife” more than I hate their wanting to be married.
I suggest the words “gouse” and “louse” instead.
You’ll enjoy this...
That will never be a phrase deserving of anything save contempt and ridicule.
You just knew this guy had to be a faggot friend of Ubama and the rats!
Standing by a purpose true,
Heeding Gods command,
Honor them, the faithful few!
All hail to Daniels band!
Dare to be a Daniel,
Dare to stand alone!
Dare to have a purpose firm!
Dare to make it known.
Many mighty men are lost,
Daring not to stand,
Who for God had been a host
By joining Daniels band.
Many giants, great and tall,
Stalking through the land,
Headlong to the earth would fall,
If met by Daniels band.
Hold the Gospel banner high!
On to victry grand!
Satan and his hosts defy,
And shout for Daniels band.
Don’t forget his attempt to infect then Presidential candidate Gary Bauer with his flue virus (one of Bauer’s assistants actually did fall ill).
I remember that. Dan Savage wrote (bragged) about licking doorknobs at the campaign office, so that people would become sick.
Savage is cruising for dates.
Irony, as usual, is completely lost on such people.
But a very revealing moment. Far too often, people on the Left are opposed to [name the issue: slavery, discrimination, bullying, whatever]...ONLY FOR THEMSELVES AND PEOPLE WHO THINK LIKE THEMSELVES. This is how people can demand the criminalization of the use of the n-word...while blaring the word out of their car speakers at 110 db.
This is how one typically finds "staunch opponents of capital punishment" calling for the assassination of Dick Cheney and Sarah Palin.
Dan Savage is many horrid things. And one of the horrid things that he is, is a bully.
To have him speak against bullying is like inviting RuPaul to speak against cross-dressing, to have Ted Nugent speak against hunting, Willie Nelson give an anti-pot address, Bill Ayers to speak for peace, Queen Elizabeth to call for an end to monarchy, Paula Deen against butter.
You need to get him involved, make him see that just sitting around and being depressed just helps the oppressors win.
He needs to go door to door this summer for some candidate of his choice. It doesn’t need to be a person running for President or Senator or even Congress (although ALL congress critters are up for re-election this year, so your grandson’s got at least on race in his area); just GET INVOLVED.
Besides, he’s young, he’s got the energy and stamina that us older people wish we still had.
Sign him up here, at the very least. Especially if he’s serious-minded. He’ll like it!
I am confused.... Are they each husbands, or is one of them the wife, or could two men both be wives. Just how is the nomenclature determined? I think your two words work much better.
The Bible tells how Sodom became so wicked that when angelic visitors came to Lot’s house, all the men in the town surrounded the house and demanded Lot give up his male visitors, so they could rape them. To make matters worse, Lot offers up his two virgin daughters to appease the crowd. http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Genesis+19&version=NIV1984
When we first read this account it seems unbelievable. How could a society get this bad?
I’m beginning to see.
Good on the kids that walked out. There’s still some hope.
Worthless faggie. Happy AIDS to him & his main squeeze.
I once had someone at our old church explain to me that the story of Sodom wasn’t about homosexuality - it was that the guests were treated poorly. THAT was the big sin.
Did I mention that was at our OLD church?
You handle bullies by punching them in the mouth. The one hundred kids who walked out should have first beat the crap out of this Savage dude(ironic name). In my day, forty-five years ago, that’s how you handled a typical school-yard bully. What the f**k is wrong with kids today?
“Conservative children are bullied in schools - by their teachers and teacher’s pets... No liberals are being bullied anywhere. “
You know I just heard the story a college student told of her parents who immigrated from the Soviet Union.
She said that the communists made fun and bullied her mother so much that all she could do is recite the Pslams about having faith that God defends his children.
The Christian believers in the Soviet Union were constantly ridiculed and harassed in schools and in the army.
When her father was 19 he was in the Soviet army and because of his faith, they made him stand out in a snow storm naked.
Finally the couple decided to come to America where they could be Christian without harassment. They raised five children and they are all strong believers.
Hmmm. I thought our nation was founded to get away from persecution?
Now is it becoming mainstream.
Thanks. This guy is one angry fag.
Remarkable — he was hired to demonstrate a textbook example of bullying, in real time, to a group of high school kids.
I hate to think we're moving in the direction of the old Soviet Union, but it does seem that way. Your story speaks of great pain, humiliation and courage. I pray we never get as bad as they were... that our people don't have to suffer as they suffered. Thanks for sharing.
“I pray we never get as bad as they were”
Reagan said that this is the last bastion of freedom on the earth and that if we lose it, no one will have any place to escape to. Let’s hope some patriots step up to save the union and our culture.
And he’s a narrow minded bigot! He doesn’t understand that he and his type are bullies - they hate traditional Christians and I’ll bet they don’t even know any...
The funny thing is the whole anti-bullying crap is back firing. People are starting to fight back. My children have no respect for teachers. They learned that lack of respect from me. They fully understand that any teacher that belongs to a union and is unwilling to be individually evaluated on their knowledge and ability to teach is worthless, vile, socialist scum. The anti-bullying scheme is for teachers, not students. It exists so teachers are not attacked for there indoctrination of the children.
I take every chance that I have to bully teachers and all “protected-class” people. And to think, I was raised to be respectful to authority and not to bully anyone. Only recently have I lost all respect for authority and have become a bully myself.
