A series of brutal documentaries has emerged that trace the evolution of bullying in movies from its earliest inception, through its current form, and beyond.
In the first of these documentaries, Bully: The Brutality of Bullying in Movies, Drew and Sarah Tishler chronicle the origins of the term bully in Hollywood, its prevalence, and its impact on young and middle-class men.
As the films reveal, BULLYING has been around since the early 1930s, when the term was first used by Hollywood’s most powerful men, including Cecil B. DeMille and Victor Fleming.
The Tishlers argue that Hollywood’s obsession with bullies, including the infamous James Dean, has played a major role in perpetuating the stereotype that boys and men are more violent than women and minorities.
Tishler notes that during the 1930s and 1940s, men were encouraged to play up their masculinity by taking the role of tough guys.
They were encouraged, for example, to wear the standard blue suit, to play sports and to make “bully” jokes.
However, as the years progressed, men increasingly came to see themselves as bullies, and they were portrayed as the villains in the movies, Tishling writes.
From their early days, Hollywood’s bikers and gangsters were portrayed by the characters as being aggressive and aggressive.
They became villains, the Tishlings say, because the media and popular culture portrayed them as the most violent.
“The bullying in these movies was not only the media’s way of making the audience feel good about themselves, it was also their way of portraying their masculinity,” Tishlin says.
Bully: Bully is available on DVD and is available for purchase on Amazon.com and Netflix.

Today’s piece examines the role that the right wing has played in the rise of the American nationalist right in the 20th century.
Neurath’s essay, What’s the Right?
Explains the history of the right, from the rise to power of the Ku Klux Klan to the rise and fall of the modern-day Trump.
This week’s video is: Why Are There So Many Conservatives in America?
The Nationalist Republican Forum is one of the oldest, most influential, and most powerful groups in the country.
Its members are often the leading lights in right-wing politics and are often given credit for the emergence of American nationalism.
But in recent years, the right has become increasingly intolerant of dissenting views.
Why Do Conservatives Have to Hide?
Neuhaus argues that the reason the right is increasingly intolerantly intolerant is that the political system is rigged to reward the loudest voices.
He says that, historically, conservatives have relied on the fact that the government was biased against them and that they are often treated as illegitimate.
It was only after the rise in the 1950s of a movement to overturn the Court’s decision that the ruling was reversed, he says.
Neuracom, the national right-leaning news and opinion website, is the only outlet that focuses on this story, and has been named by The Atlantic as one of The 50 Most Important News Sites in the World.
On Sunday, the site posted a new video explaining the rise, rise and rise of American nationalists.
You can watch the video below: Neo-Nazis and the Rise to Power of the Neo-Nazi RightIn The Rise of American Nationalism: Neo-Nazis, the Right, and the Future of the Right.
The video begins with a look at the history and evolution of the white supremacist movement.
To understand the rise is to understand the current climate.
We see the rise today, the rise we saw a couple of years ago.
