International day for Tolerance
International Tolerance Day is recognized each year by people across the globe who are taking action to create a more tolerant society for others. Be it in the workplace, at school, in the community or family, these actions are crucial to minimize hate and discrimination in our society.
There are three very common forms of intolerance that my father, Mike Rinder is guilty of: Injustice, discrimination and violence.
1. Discrimination – definitely a yes. Mike Rinder does not have boundaries when it comes to discrimination. He will discriminate against anyone and everyone. His only criterion for doing so is those he feels will harm his own reputation by telling the truth of who he is. He has uses various platforms to do so continuously. Worst of all, Mike Rinder discriminates against his own children and family.
To call your child “a robot”, “brainwashed” “an automaton” or a “rabid rat” is beyond cruel and disgusting. No father should ever say this to their child, much less say it on social media! Mike Rinder’s discrimination tells a lot about the man that he is.
2. Injustice—check. [Random House Webster’s: Violation of the rights of others; unjust or unfair action or treatment.]
My father, Mike Rinder, deserted his family, started a hate campaign against us and then domestically abused my mom (the mother of two of his children) and left her with a crippled right arm. He has not been held accountable for this abuse, nor for his hate and harassment of his children. He has continued to victim shame my mother and is supported by such entities as CHILD USA and iHeart radio in that hate. If that isn’t injustice, I don’t know what is.
3. Violence—also a check. As I mentioned, Mike Rinder, attacked my mom. The attack was violent and hurt her badly. He did it with a visible intent to harm her—which he did. This was no accident. The resultant damage was that her right shoulder was cracked, the nerves in her arm were damaged and the flesh was torn. She had to go to the hospital to get surgery because the damage was so bad. His violent behavior manifests itself in the pain my mom experiences every day of every year since that moment.
Please step back and take a look at Mike Rinder and his intolerance of others. It’s prevalent. Confront his intolerance and help stop it by ending any support of him—small or large.
Instead, let’s express tolerance for one and all!
