Pro-Bully Group Will Speak to Anne Arundel Middle Schoolers

Pro-Bully Group Will Speak to Anne Arundel Middle SchoolersAnne Arundel County Public Schools (AACPS) announced on their Website yesterday that a national pro bully group will speak to Anne Arundel middle schoolers in May. Bullies for a Strong America (BSA), a national non-profit, has been scheduled to speak at several county middle schools in May. The concept of having a pro-bully program runs contrary to a national trend that has generally condemned bullying, but AACPS Spokesman, Mike Bosier, says that parents should keep an open mind.

School Reasoning For Pro-Bully Discussion

“School officials and teachers frown on bullying, in general,” Bosier said, in an email. “But we also think that it is important to present all sides of an issue. We need to start a dialog on bullying; and quite frankly, that includes the views of bullies.”

Pro-Bully Group Speaks

BSA President, Doug Grunderson, says that his group performs a valuable service by demonstrating that bullying is an age-old tradition that serves as a form of natural selection. He argues that, by eliminating the role of bully in schools, the natural order is being disturbed and that affects society, as a whole.

“By clamping down on bullying, we are turning a generation of kids into coddled sissies,” Grunderson explained, while leaning against a locker that sounded like someone was trapped inside and trying desperately to get out. “Middle school is a formidable time in kids’ lives where they decide if they want to spend the rest of their life being the predator or being the prey. And let’s face it…many bullies grow up and move into successful careers in professions such as lawyers, DMV employees, and cable news personalities.”

The presentation, which involves eight members of BSA, lasts about two hours, including questions from the audience. It starts with a discussion on the value of bullying and how to do it without being observed by teachers or other school employees. There will be demonstrations on the correct execution of various bullying tactics including general intimidation, spitballs, swirlies, wedgies, ear-flicks, wet-willies, Native-American burns, and the most effective methods of muttering threats under one’s breath so that only the victim can hear them. New to the seminar this year is a panel on social media and cyber-bullying.

“This is not your father’s bully,” laughed Grunderson, while knocking the books out of the hands of a passing seventh-grader. “In this day and age, it’s not enough to be a bully just during school hours. It’s a 24-7 job now. With Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Tumblr, Snapchat…the new opportunities for effective, consistent bullying are endless. Being a bully nowadays means you have to stay on top of technology.”
