Are you Serious?
You are Supposed to be Leaders
Lead by example. Two wrongs do not make a right.
Although some bullying will probably always take place, I believe that everyone needs to work together to stop bullying. Schools, parents, community businesses and organizations, community members, and politicians.
One example is:
This is also an Ad Hominem Fallacy in which his opponents are trying to tear down his character (BULLY) in order to claim that he is unable to do his job properly. This is bullying.
At this point I was DISGUSTED by the candidate that would create this flyer. I now wanted to know who it was and contact them to see if they would ever consider explaining why they are a good candidate instead of tearing down and bullying their opponent.
I looked for the candidates name. Then I looked some more. I couldn't find it! That is strange, I thought. Then I noticed the fine print on the top of the page which read this:
Paid for by the American Federation of Children Action Fund.
Time out! The American Federation for Children is responsible for the worst case of bullying that I have seen in politics this year? This makes absolutely no sense. Is this a federation that stands for children? Or, is this a federation that stands for a different agenda and hides behind the guise of helping children?
I didn't know much about this group so I decided to look them up. Their mission statement, on their website (http://www.federationforchildren.org/about-us/mission/) reads:
The American Federation for Children and the Alliance for School Choice seek to improve our nation's K-12 education by advancing a systematic and sustainable public policy that empowers parents, particularly those in low-income families, to choose the education they determine is best for their children.
I figured they had to have some political agenda. On this same URL they had a section titled "WHAT WE DO", but I did not see "bullying" anywhere in that paragraph.
