Michigan state Senator Gretchen Whitmer is not letting Republicans get away with "creating a blueprint for bullying"

This is a follow up to a post I wrote last week about "Matt's Safe School Law", which passed 26-11 with no (that's zero) Democrats voting for the anti-bullying bill. Why? Because the bill, named for Matt Eppling, a 14-year-old who committed suicide after being bullied by classmates in 2002, was changed to allow expression of religious or moral beliefs, basically giving a free pass to people who bully gay children in the name of God (yes, this is supposed to sound as hideous as it does).

Here is a great YouTube clip of  Michigan's Children (led by Sen. Gretchen Whitmer) Speaking Out Against this Republican Pro-Bullying Legislation:
