Bul­ly­ing comes from the lib­eral left, too

The Gulf News (Port aux Basques) - - EDITORIAL -

I am writ­ing to con­grat­u­late Fi­nance Min­is­ter Cathy Bennett on her anti-bul­ly­ing cam­paign re­gard­ing cy­ber­bul­ly­ing, etc. It is so easy now to use cy­berspace to spew vi­cious ha­tred against a per­son or or­ga­ni­za­tion, prac­ti­cally anony­mously.

As a politi­cian and a per­son up to date on cur­rent af­fairs, I won­der how Bennett feels about the cam­paign by the group be­hind the “grab your wal­let” cam­paign (https://graby­our­wal­let.org) list­ing stores that sell Ivanka Trump’s prod­uct line in an at­tempt to bully the stores into tak­ing her prod­ucts off their shelves.

As a politi­cian, there will al­ways be peo­ple who love you and peo­ple who hate you, but how would you feel if your child, who has noth­ing to do with your pol­i­tics, was at­tacked sim­ply be­cause she was your child?

And to make mat­ters worse, this vi­cious bul­ly­ing is be­ing done, not by the “de­plorables,” as the Trump sup­port­ers have come to be known, but by the good, po­lit­i­cally cor­rect, non­racist lib­eral left! It is amaz­ing how good the lib­eral left can be un­til they lose.

Can you imag­ine for one sec­ond the up­roar on CNN and other lib­eral me­dia out­lets if Hil­lary Clin­ton’s daugh­ter was ma­ligned and bul­lied in this fash­ion?

Again, I con­grat­u­late Min­is­ter Bennett in her stance against bul­ly­ing, and I hope she makes ref­er­ence to the bul­ly­ing tac­tics of the lib­eral left against a young lady who should be up­held as a role model for young women ev­ery­where, not trashed be­cause she hap­pens to be the daugh­ter of the elected pres­i­dent of the United States.
