SOLUTIONS TO BULLYING

I wanted to tell you that before I read “Sticks and Stones,” I’d been struggling to find a way to approach a school bullying incident with one of my children. He was totally stonewalling me — he didn’t want to talk about it.

In the same decade, Miller founded the Carolina Knights of the Ku Klux Klan and the White Patriot Party. Running for senate in Missouri in 2010, he talked about his views with Howard Stern (our politicians “are all a bunch of whores for Israel”), and he talked to Talking Points Memo in 2012 (“Jews call the shots. But white people, we have no power at all”).
