Barbra Streisand: Trump ‘Directly Responsible’ for Growing Hate Against Children

By  | 

Actress-singer Barbra Streisand is blaming President Donald Trump for what she believes is growing racism and discrimination among children in the U.S., saying that she is heartbroken over the issue.

The two-time Oscar-winning megastar tweeted Thursday that President Trump is “directly responsible” for the alleged upsurge in kid-on-kid racism.

“Trump is directly responsible for the hate and discrimination that is growing in this country,” Streisand tweeted. “And for our children — This is heartbreaking!”

Barbra Streisand was responding to a recent Washington Post report about incidents of young children saying things like “build the wall” and “go back to where you came from” to children of color.

But the Post article provides no statistical evidence that such incidents are “growing” in number, as Streisand tweeted.  The Post acknowledged that most schools don’t track the phenomenon of “Trump bullying” and that researchers didn’t ask about it in the most recent federal survey devoted to bullying.

The newspaper cited a 2016 teacher survey by the highly partisan Southern Poverty Law Center claiming that there were 2,500 incidents of “bigotry and harassment that can be directly traced to election rhetoric.” But the Post provided no comparable figures from earlier years that might show some kind of trend.

The Post article also acknowledged that young Trump supporters also face bullying and harassment at school at rates higher than those experienced by some minorities.

Streisand has frequently expressed her antipathy for President Trump on social media.

The Hollywood star tweeted a violent photo last year depicting a bloodied President Trump being impaled by the heel of a shoe belonging to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA). She tweeted earlier that year that President Trump should be the first “climate denier” to be removed from office.

In 2018, Streisand released a new politically themed song, “Don’t Lie to Me,” which was aimed at President Trump.

    The only bullying going on are the Democrats trying to bully the conservatives. They are the ones who are against freedom of speech, freedom of expression, and want to take rights away. Many liberal teachers are the ones pushing these issues. Old Babs, like of her Hollywood cronies, have their heads up their butts.

    Barbara Streisand, please do something with your looks. I mean you are so ugly that you have to sneak up to a glass of water to get a drink. Damn you are an ugly skank. We can definitely tell you’re a democrat, as ugly as you are.

    Poor barbra never caught on that kids learn from the people they hang around with including their parents. She has such a bad case of TDS that she more than likely will never be cured unless she unwraps herself from herself.

I think we need all new senators that’s been in way to long. DEMO has done nothing in the last three years but plan on getting rid of president. I think they are worried about the skeltons in their closets.
