College:

That place where you can Jitterbug on the Lawn in broad daylight and you get this reaction from the public:

“The Siren” by Kiera Cass –

“People walked by, pointing and laughing, but it was one of those moments when I knew we weren’t being mocked; we were being envied.”

But, even though there’s envy, its always paired with acceptance and a desire to join in. THAT is why its true that College liberalizes people.

Donald Trump is a Bully and the Christian Post agrees (even if they don’t realize it yet).

Yeah, I know,  I know. It’s easy to say it, but apparently the rest of the country doesn’t actually believe it.

But, while browsing Christian Post, I came across this article about 8 Warning Signs of a Church Bully and Oh My Goodness, they’re describing one Donald J. Trump! The real irony is that while trying to grab this list, there was a Trump ad on the page calling Hillary “Crooked Hillary” and saying that she’s bought by the lobbyists, Wall Street, etc.

1. They are among the first in the church to tell you how much they love you. And they will continue to love you as long as you do everything exactly the way they want it done every single day.

–Trump loves to say how much he loves you! He’s got friends everywhere–including Idaho! I still would love to hear directly from these Idahoan friends of his!

2. They have strong personalities. They tend to be boisterous. They speak up frequently in meetings. They can be loud. They like to dominate conversations.

–Uh yeah. This is Trump with a capital T!

3. They are highly opinionated. And if you ever disagree with them, you become their next target.

–Especially when it comes to people who disagree! Encouraging the booing of protesters and having them kicked out of “his show”. Bad talking EVERYONE on the Republican side who says something negative about him even after the nomination is his! I was very appalled when he not only encouraged Ted Cruz to go on stage knowing that Cruz didn’t plan to endorse him, but then was saying that Cruz’s career is over because he did that.

4. They are terrible listeners. They want you to listen to them; they don’t want to listen to you.

–Trump lives in his own little world. He says he already knows everything he needs to know about everything or can learn what he needs to know from a 3 page brief!

5. They build unhealthy alliances. The bully in one church built an alliance with two weak staff members. The three of them spoke in secret to the personnel committee about the pastor. The pastor was fired without even being asked his side of the story. Watch carefully those the bully befriends.

–I’ve been very disappointed as top Republicans keep letting Trump steamroll them. I mean, Paul Ryan didn’t want to endorse Trump, but decided he had to in favor of “Party Unity”. To Hell with Party Unity–this is THE COUNTRY that’s at stake!

6. They murmur and gossip. Most of their words are negative. They are the anti-Barnabas.

–“Crooked Hillary”. Rubio’s small hands. “Lyin’ Ted”. I haven’t heard what he’s come up with for Tim Kaine yet, but I heard that coming up with a mean nickname was on the top of their agenda (because apparently it’s too much work to come up with a proper platform for the candidate and actual plans to implement everything that he wants to do).

7. They do most of their toxic work in darkness. They let other people become the fall persons for their nefarious deeds. They meet with them behind closed doors and then slither away.

–He’s thrown Cruz under the bus just this past week. He let the speechwriter take the fall for Melania’s plagiarism. He has attached his name to a lot of businesses that have since failed, while he comes away richer and with more fame. But it’s never his fault that the company failed. There are something like 3000 court cases with the Trump brand attached in both plaintiff and defendant positions!

8. They have been to several churches. Bullies tend to move around. They do their damage at one church and then leave. They are sometimes asked to leave.

–Hmm…there hasn’t been much evidence of Trump’s church attendance, but he has bounced from business to business leaving havoc in his wake. See above.

 

When everyone sees through the bragging and suddenly you’re in deep doo doo.

“Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets” by J.K. Rowling, Mary GrandPré –

““Just the man,” he said. “The very man. A girl has been snatched by the monster, Lockhart. Taken into the Chamber of Secrets itself. Your moment has come at last.”

Lockhart blanched.

“That’s right, Gilderoy,” chipped in Professor Sprout. “Weren’t you saying just last night that you’ve known all along where the entrance to the Chamber of Secrets is?”

“I — well, I —” sputtered Lockhart.

“Yes, didn’t you tell me you were sure you knew what was inside it?” piped up Professor Flitwick.

“D-did I? I don’t recall —”

“I certainly remember you saying you were sorry you hadn’t had a crack at the monster before Hagrid was arrested,” said Snape. “Didn’t you say that the whole affair had been bungled, and that you should have been given a free rein from the first?”

Lockhart stared around at his stony-faced colleagues. “I — I really never — you may have misunderstood —”

“We’ll leave it to you, then, Gilderoy,” said Professor McGonagall. “Tonight will be an excellent time to do it. We’ll make sure everyone’s out of your way. You’ll be able to tackle the monster all by youself. A free rein at last.”

Lockhart gazed desperately around him, but nobody came to the rescue. He didn’t look remotely handsome anymore. His lip was trembling, and in the absence of his usually toothy grin, he looked weak-chinned and feeble.”

Because a “Get Well” card is the perfect time to remind everyone AGAIN of your accomplishments

“Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets” by J.K. Rowling, Mary GrandPré –

““To Miss Granger, wishing you a speedy recovery, from your concerned teacher, Professor Gilderoy Lockhart, Order of Merlin, Third Class, Honorary Member of the Dark Force Defense League, and five-time winner of Witch Weekly’s Most-Charming-Smile Award.””

Trump loves to tell everyone how “really rich” he is because that’s the only thing he has going for him. Ignore the fact that he’s declared bankruptcy like 4 times and he and his companies either have been sued or have sued approximately 3000 times. Lockhart’s one spell to take on Cornish Pixies failed during his lesson plan!

That time some guy says that evil goes away because he is in charge

“Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets” by J.K. Rowling, Mary GrandPré –

“Gilderoy Lockhart seemed to think he himself had made the attacks stop. Harry overheard him telling Professor McGonagall so while the Gryffindors were lining up for Transfiguration.

“I don’t think there’ll be any more trouble, Minerva,” he said, tapping his nose knowingly and winking. “I think the Chamber has been locked for good this time. The culprit must have known it was only a matter of time before I caught him. Rather sensible to stop now, before I came down hard on him.

(I added the emphasis.)

Trump seems to think ISIS will cease to exist when he becomes President. That magical harmony will erupt between police and minorities. That we will all kiss his feet in gratitude…

A lesson in humanity:

Bad guys mock people.

“Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets” by J.K. Rowling, Mary GrandPré –

“Malfoy started taking pictures with an imaginary camera and did a cruel but accurate impression of Colin: “‘Potter, can I have your picture, Potter? Can I have your autograph? Can I lick your shoes, please, Potter?’””

Here’s Hillary’s “Role Model” commercial so we can see some of the times Trump has mocked others. Can anyone share an example of Hillary mocking someone?

Well now I’m really confused!

I was under the impression that Coulter hates immigrants (you know, by blaming them for EVERYTHING wrong with this country). But I guess some immigrants are okay. I guess the ones that have green in the country what? …10 years? A generation? She’s not specific, but here she is praising these Hispanics for agreeing with her:

Or maybe its not supposed to be praise. Maybe she’d kick these people out and Rubio with them.

—————————

“Adios, America: The Left’s Plan to Turn Our Country into a Third World Hellhole” by Ann Coulter –

“Most Hispanics are smarter than Marco Rubio. In 2011, 73 percent of California Hispanics said they’d support a candidate who wanted to “secure the border first, stop illegal immigration, and then find a way to address the status of people already here illegally.”12”

Sounds like something Trump would say

Style-wise, if not content-wise:

“Adios, America: The Left’s Plan to Turn Our Country into a Third World Hellhole” by Ann Coulter –

““The fact is,” Corker exclaimed, “we are investing resources in securing our border that have never been invested before.” 10 Why, he’s so serious about getting in shape, he’s taken out three gym memberships!”

The contradictions are great with this one…

“Adios, America: The Left’s Plan to Turn Our Country into a Third World Hellhole” by Ann Coulter –

“As Reagan’s amnesty proves, it’s pointless to talk about what to do with the illegal aliens already here until we’ve secured the border.”

But earlier she wrote: “The Obama administration simply changed the definition of “deport” to include “illegal aliens turned away at the border.” It’s as if a school lowered the definition of “passing grade” from 70 to 40, then bragged about its high graduation rate,” to contradict the claim that Obama isn’t the “Deporter in Chief”.

What gives?!?! Border Patrol during the Obama administration has apparently been doing a heck of a job keeping illegals from crossing the border (30% is kind of huge if her analogy has any mathematical reality!). But I guess its not enough for Coulter.

The way I think she wants us to read this book is that the gates are wide open even though she’s already implied that that’s not the case whatsoever! You’d think she’d be consistent if she cared about gaining supporters to her movement. If I wanted my audience to believe that Obama has opened the borders to everyone, I wouldn’t mention that any have been turned away. Just a suggestion!
