    http://www.politicususa.com/2016/10/03/concerned-teachers-speak-alarming-trend-bullying-call-trump-effect.htmlKids are shouting “build the wall!” and waving their hands around to imitate a disabled kid like the Republican nominee for president Donald Trump did.

    This is what is happening in our schools, according to reports by educators relayed in a press call with reporters Monday.

    Teachers and educators are becoming increasingly alarmed, so much so that their union, the National Education Association (NEA), is going to spend 6 figures on a digital campaign and direct mail buy to help amplify their message about the alarming trend of increased bullying due to the 2016 presidential election, which has been dubbed the “Trump effect.”

    Joy Bock, a middle school social studies teacher from Pataskala, Ohio, described herself as a lifelong Republican, who will be voting Democrat for first time in her life for many reasons, not the least of which is, “We must not have a bully in the White House.”

    In all of my years as a teacher I have never had to think about how to undo the harm a candidate for president is doing,” Bock explained. Teachers are used to dealing with bullying, but it’s very hard to explain to kids that they shouldn’t be doing what an adult who is running for president is doing.

    AMBRIDGE (AP) – Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump is returning to Pennsylvania next week with a rally planned at a high school.

    Trump’s campaign says he’ll appear Monday at Ambridge Area Senior High School. That’s about 25 miles northwest of Pittsburgh.

    The rally will be Trump’s first in Pennsylvania following a second debate with Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton, which will be televised Sunday night.

    Doors open at noon but the rally won’t begin until 3:30 p.m. It will be held in the school’s athletic field house.

    First the Republicans subjected our country's children to their pedophile priests. Now to their Trump.

    Duh uninformed Liberal, the only Catholic President the US ever had was Liberal Democrat JFK.

    VP Joe Biden is a Catholic.

    Sec. Of State John Kerry is a Catholic.

    Governor Andrew Cuomo of NY is a Catholic.

    Liberal Democrat VP Candidate Tim Kaine is a Catholic.

    Hadn't looked at the surveys of congregants. Pretty sure I was judging based on the institution's attitudes put into action against marriage equality and for discrimination against LGBT as to whether the church was liberal or conservative. Here's the stats which favors Dem over Rep among the faithful by 7 points in the Catholic column so I am surprised at that though I'd more so take a stand against their deeds of denying us than their words of compassion which have no meaning without them putting that into practice.

    Once they start marrying us and stop discriminating against us (anyone for some pizza?) you might have a leg to stand on as to their dominant political leaning.

    The pope might pander left, but if he doesn't move the church, his words alone don't count so much.

    The reality is that children are bullied in school ,regardless. And You can thank Hillary Clinton for the exposure of Trump's mannerisms, as she had run an ad for several weeks depicting his movements- He did it once at a rally and it should've died there. I remember growing up , special needs children were always made fun of, as were fat children and poor children. It's just the reality of the world we live in. I'm not saying it's right but it is reality. So please stop the whining and the sanctimonious preaching. Thank you

    Did you just blame Hillary for Trump?

    You mean like how we're gonna hear about grabbing pussy for the next two years is Hillary's fault? Oh, and don't forget that she decided a decade ago to keep his film under wraps for 10 years to spring 30 days before they'd be facing each other on election day. Even if you could fault her on that, you'd at least have to give her a hell of a lot of credit for planning, right? Never mind for omniscience.

    Stop being such a stupid fucking moron please. Thank you.

    You were sleeping in church. Many priests are pro gay marriage, the Pope is NOT.

    A truly pathetic attempt to blame bullying on Trump. As if bullying never happened until a presidential candidate came along in 2016.

    That article is complete pandering, propagandistic horseshit.

    JFK was also known as President Pants Down, and a drug addict, who had his own Dr Feelgood by his side at all t imes; just as Hitler did; another catholic.
