A leading voice and advocate of bullying prevention for many years questions some of the methodologies and research of the anti-bullying political movement. In sharing recent research that calls into question the efficacy of school-wide anti-bullying programs he gets bullied.
“Speak out against the anti-bullying political movement and get bullied. School psychologist Izzy Kalman speaks out against the false prophets of anti-bullying.

Check out what happens when you try to bring wisdom and experience to the table. “The anti-bully movement has done such a phenomenal job of convincing everyone that it is good to go after ‘bullies” that many people have no interest in evidence to the contrary. Look at this response I received from one newspaper editor:
|Your logic here sucks. I’m sorry, you depend on me being stupid to take this trash seriously. You might want to run this by Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold. Oh. Sorry. They’re dead, as are 10 or so people who bullied them plus several innocent bystanders. But that’s just life, right? Take me off your mailing list. You’re a moron.|
