children follow the example of the adults around them. as long as anglo culture condones and even praises adult bullying the children will follow.
henry krimgle, your outrageaos libels about president obama, what do you think people think that is , for example?
it looks like racist bullying to me. how do you think that makes people from minorities feel about participating on mudcat.
the vancouver folk song circle had the biggest bully of all, a nazi . singing hitler youth songs for years. what does anyone think that message was? it's ok to bully minorities, and any victums of the holocoust were driven out by the examp,e. i addition the real nazi inculcated bullying in his chlidren and they spent a liftime driving the "bad people" from their folk group. that is nothing but adult bullying. demonizing others in any way is bullying and if you are doing it you are telling young people its ok, even good. the culture of aggressiopn wins , wins out.
and i've had mudcat moderators say its ok to sing hitler youth songs, they used to be german folk songs. well its illegal in germany . you have to remove the nazi era verses. no one ion vancouver did that.
i certainly do not participate as much in mudcat as i used to of would if it were not for the racist and bullying attacks. and these are relatively mild, imagine whats going on out there in the cyber world.
agaim i told the story of the simngers club, when i once visited, i was told in no uncertain terms that no gaelic here, and they ran me off. again adult bullying. of course in britian folk groups are totally divided by race and class-- the ultimate culture of bullying.
i even had one ranting english nut accuse the acadiens of atlantic canada of stealing from the natives. the acadiens were the only group to marry into the native community and get along--and mostly still do. his people. the english, put a bounty on native scalps!!!! and ethnically cleansed the acadiens from their settlements
what booms louder than any words is no one ever ever comes to the defense of people under these attacks on muscat. you all sit on your hands and let the aggression win.in fact the victum is usually made fun of.
children follow the example of the adults. anglo culture is a labratory for bullies.
