Huge Leftwing Activist Groups Behind Supposed Teen-Organized March for Gun Control

Huge Leftwing Activist Groups Behind Supposed Teen-Organized March for Gun Control

Left-wing agitators and second-amendment haters are in the worst and most literal sense using traumatized kids as tools to garner political capital.

It was bad enough that the media exploited Marjory Stoneman Douglas shooting survivors during an incredibly vulnerable time.

Now, two weeks after the school shooting that left 17 people dead, these same teenagers are being objectified by leftwing activist groups in a national push for gun control.

“March For Our Lives” (an overly dramatic name), a rally to be held in D.C. on March 24, is being organized by teenagers from Marjory Stoneman Douglas, and a few major players in the social justice fight.

According to a report by Buzzfeed, Planned Parenthood (does no one see the irony here?), Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America, Move On, and The Women’s March (organized by an anti-Israel, pro-BDS, anti-feminist) have joined forces with the teens, to assist them with the march.

The Women’s March, not the teens, is the entity that applied for the event permit. According to the application, they’re expecting 500,000 attendees.

Barely two weeks ago, the student survivors sat in a circle in the living room of one of their parents’ homes, planning a trip to Tallahassee to meet with lawmakers and handling nitty-gritty matters like which media outlets to talk to.

Since then, major players and organizations — including Everytown, Giffords, Move On, Planned Parenthood, and the Women’s March LA — told BuzzFeed News they are helping the students with logistics, strategy, and planning for next month’s March for Our Lives rally and beyond. Much of the specific resources the groups are providing to the Parkland students remains unclear — as is the full list of supporting organizations — but there are broad outlines.

…Everytown for Gun Safety — bankrolled mostly by Michael Bloomberg — recently secured a $1 million donation from entrepreneur and philanthropist Eli Broad.

MoveOn said it will encourage its millions of members to follow and promote the March for Our Lives movement on social media and attend the rally next month. The group said it had offered support in organizing logistics such as security and portable toilets, but it is unclear if the students have taken them up on their offer.

A spokesperson for Planned Parenthood said the group is “teaching and hosting trainings” for young activists across the US “to keep momentum going so they don’t get burned out.”

Planned Parenthood said it has been in contact with Giffords, which is spearheading the national coalition of groups working with March for Our Lives.

Arguably, these groups have hijacked the march, being as they plan to take center stage for the majority of the festivities.

Giffords, an organization started by former US Rep. Gabrielle Giffords that fights gun violence, is working with Everytown and Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America to plan the main march on Washington — as well as sister rallies across the country.

With the event scheduled to happen in less than a month, a spokesperson for Giffords told BuzzFeed News the organization “will be lending support in any way the students need, especially helping to operationalize these marches from logistics to programming.”

I’m sure it’s purely coincidence that all of this is happening just before the 2018 midterm elections. Surely these national organizations aren’t using kids as political props. Right?! RIGHT?!

SPOILER: They totally are.

Social justice outfits aren’t the only groups to join the party. The American Federation of Teachers is also involved, helping kids organize walk-outs and wait for it…”We are also marching towards midterms.”

Buzzfeed ctd.:

The American Federation of Teachers, which helped bus students and parents to Tallahassee multiple times last week, are now assisting with the March for Our Lives rally. The federation’s president told BuzzFeed News that they are also helping support next month’s march as well as helping to shape the vision and mission for the group once the rally is over.

“There are a lot of people who know how to put on a march in Washington and we are here to help support the teens with that experience in terms of logistics and strategy but it’s still early and they have some time to figure that out,” AFT President Randi Weingarten told BuzzFeed News. “We will be here for that ‘oh shit moment’ when they realize they need things like permits.”

Weingarten said “this moment is different,” and there will be a lot of work to do after next month’s march.

AFT, as well as the growing contingent of organizations backing the student-led march, are working to cultivate and build upon the movement after the rally. Weingarten noted that the groups are also behind the “National School Walkout” taking place in April to commemorate the 20th anniversary of Columbine.

After that, she says the goal is to carry that momentum until November — with some of the students already using the hashtag #VoteThemOut.

“We are also marching towards midterms,” she said, adding that the activists intend for gun control and student safety to be a major platform and key issue for voters in the midterm elections.

“With their angst, anger, and authenticity, these students have pierced through the normal polarization of this debate,” Weingarten said. “This moment is different.”

Where are their parents? And why are these kids left unprotected and vulnerable to political predators?

Make no mistake, The March For Our Lives is not spontaneous, nor is it For The Children™ (Planned Parenthood’s involvement says at least that much). Left-wing agitators, social justice warriors, and anti-second amendment folks are in the worst and most literal sense using traumatized kids as tools to garner political capital.

Heartbreaking. Heartbreaking and disgusting.

    The left did the same when the Occupy movement pushed the students aside some years ago. The young provided the energy and then were drowned out by professional agitprop players.

The centipedes on Reddit and the autists on 4-chan pointed this out before the CNN townhall.

Does anyone know when the March for our Lives people will march on Planned Parenthood?

This is on us for letting the Marxists tap out.

Something about “the ends justifying the means….”

    Isn’t that why the right supports Donald Trump?

      Wow!!!! this is shocking. A sock puppet account because absolutely no one believes any of YellowTroll’s feelings as facts narrative. So like any good leftest he is going to put his thumb on the scale to TRY to change the facts and the perception.

      Truly YellowTroll you sicken me. I hope I never have to meet you IRL.

        DaveGinOly in reply to Shane. | February 28, 2018 at 6:42 pm

        I met snake oil once IRL. Took me ten minutes to scrub him out from between the treads on my athletic shoes.

I just love to be lectured to by a seventeen year old whose authority stems from being a victim. Who is pulling the puppet strings of these little children?

Well, sure. Never let a good atrocity go to waste. This march won’t do much, but they’ll be ready for another one when the next atrocity happens. And it will. The “gun free zones” make that certain. Even so, they’re advertising—just to be sure no miscreant anywhere misses it—with their ritual pig-wallow in a Columbine Anniversary Celebration.

YellowSnakeInChief | February 28, 2018 at 3:36 pm

“Planned Parenthood (does no one see the irony here?)

sort of like anti-abortion groups calling themselves pro-life.

Shocking, shocking! Groups that have experience with organizing a march are assisting the students because they are behind what the students started. That would be a fairer way of putting it unless you wish to claim that these organization started it.

Breaking News: A teacher (previously a good guy with a gun) barricaded himself in a classroom, today. He fired the gun when the principal opened the door with a key. In the ensuing panic, a student was hurt while running away.

As he was dragged away, the teacher was heard to exclaim: “I am a liberal democrat and I did this to protest Donald Trump making all teachers carry guns in their classrooms. I wanted to prove it is a stupid idea”.

    So it’s irony that someone who doesn’t want to kill something is considered for life? I swear you are a high school student in an ultra liberal district. Do you think through any of the things that you say?

    Ohhhh BTW you forgot to up vote your comment with your other account. Just wanted to let you know in case you forgot.

    First of all, this is a self identified liberal Democrat. As is becoming increasingly accepted, in the mental health community, liberalism is a form of delusional mental illness. So, probably, this man should not have been allowed to own a firearm. At best he has proven that he is not competent to own one, now.

    Second, if the school had any meaningful security, this teacher would not have been able to enter the school with a firearm to begin with.

    Third, this is why only heavily vetted individuals should be allowed to have firearms in a school to begin with. Without psychological screening, it is impossible to know if a person is dangerously mentally ill of not.

    As I have mentioned previously, arming teachers, to provide security at a school, sounds like an easy fix for the problem of school invasions. But, it is not.

    Snake oil reveals himself as the abject moron that he is.

    First, he calls someone shooting indiscriminately in a school and “good guy,” when by definition good guys don’t do bad guy things (because that makes them “bad guys”). Second, he quotes the miscreant as self-identifying as someone other than a “good guy with a gun,” completely subverting his own statement.

    The only thing this teacher (and snake oil) proved is that liberals are lunatics. Only a lunatic would pull a stunt like this and only a lunatic would proudly point to it as an incident that supports his world-view. (And only liberals need incidents like this, and worse, to promote their anti-gun agenda. But somehow, they call the NRA and 80 million gun owners who did not irresponsibly discharge their weapons today – or yesterday or the day before – “murderers” and “child killers.”)

    Yeah, removing guns from Democrats would drop our gun homicide rate to that of Scandinavia.

    G. de La Hoya in reply to YellowSnakeInChief. | February 28, 2018 at 10:03 pm

    Exactly correct Snake. Probably 80% of the teachers are unhinged, union first, communist that shouldn’t realistically pass a background check to even own a firearm to begin with. That is the Pandora’s box the NEA doesn’t want opened. Teachers will be outed and fired because they psychologically shouldn’t be around kids. Never thought I would agree with you more. I hope the good Professor forgives you for your past sins 🙂

Planned Parenthood thinks it’s replacing the gun with the scalpel as the mode of death for children.

    YellowSnakeInChief in reply to faboutlaws. | February 28, 2018 at 3:48 pm

    So guns do kill children.

      And so do needles full of formaldyhyde, cars, buckets, planes, buses, parents, wood bats, knives, ditches, trains, canals, bridges … do I really need to go on.

      Please you have no arguments that involve any facts. You just make shit up based on your feelings. Go away … you are STILL not welcome here.

      So how are you still alive?

      Are you in favor of raising the age to acquire a driver license to 21? After all, more teenagers are killed annually as drivers and in wrecks caused by teen drivers, than are killed in schools by attackers with all types of weapons.

      If you’re not in favor of raising the age for driver licenses to 21, then you don’t care about children and are a heartless monster, responsible personally for the deaths of teens in car wrecks.

[sarcasm]
You have to give the Leftist anti-gun people credit: they have perfected a method to turn large groups of teens into mindless zombies.

    You have to give the Gun Lobby credit: they have perfected a method to less people to buy more and more guns [sarcasm? – No]

      No, they rightly point the danger of people like you that lie and manipulate to hurt other people. They also expose what happens when large groups of you get together and call yourselves the moral authority.

        YellowSnakeInChief in reply to Shane. | February 28, 2018 at 5:59 pm

        Like the anti-family planning lobby. I am not using a euphemism. Most of the things PP does have nothing to do with abortion.

          What a neanderthal. You make misogynist statements, (“Don’t you worry about logic or facts. They aren’t for girls.”) and you support barbaric birth control that has not advanced since the 1st century. And yet you think yourself enlightened. Only in your weird dreams, my friend.

          YellowSnakeInChief in reply to YellowSnakeInChief. | February 28, 2018 at 6:38 pm

          Elle, you crack me up. I was baiting you. LOL. You make me laugh. That is a good thing.

          I was also making fun of conservatives that fought the ERA and don’t generally want women to be equal. I would have been disappointed if you got it.

          I am still laughing.

          That’s cute that you are baiting me, because I was mocking you.

          Whelp, I guess your right because pretty much all they do other than abortions is lobby the government for more money … good call YellowTroll.

          YellowSnakeInChief in reply to YellowSnakeInChief. | February 28, 2018 at 8:59 pm

          @elle I hope you are at least good looking. Trump has no use for ugly women.

          Lie, straight up. 90% of what they do is abortion.

          YellowSnakeInChief in reply to YellowSnakeInChief. | March 1, 2018 at 12:36 am

          @SDN Someone is lying. ‘Pregnancy Crisis Centers’ brag about lying in the cause of ‘saving’ babies’ O’Keefe lies in the name of – making misleading headlines. The Catholic Church and a whole bunch of other religious types certainly lied about what they were doing.

          90% eh? Then they do a lot of birth control, cancer tests, std testing and treatment with the other 10%. But then the weirdest of your lot think sex is strictly for procreation. So I guess that would explain your misperception.

          Look, you can hate all you. But if you are lying to justify your hate, then you are sicker than the people you hate.

          Ah yah the myth of other services. If you go for an abortion you get a range of “other” services like STD testing, pregnancy testing, etc … and then you get an abortion. But hey each one counts for the optics … I wonder why they do it like this?

          Wow and 37% of their funding comes directly from the government, and 36% from “private” funding so a whopping 73% of their revenue comes from not the client buying the product … oooohhhh no it comes from “other” sources. And I wonder how much the private donations are really just a mis-direct for government support via other means, we will never know because their financials don’t disclose it.

          The only reason for PP exists is to siphon government money into private hands like any good Marxist the final goal is to get the favored people the right amount of money.

          Most things the Manson cultists did had nothing to do with murder either.

      You have to give the Gun Lobby credit: they have perfected a method to less people to buy more and more guns

      Interestingly enough, the government has done just that. And evidently plans to do more. Who needs a gun lobby, when the industry has government selling guns for them as fast as they can make them?

      And much of the market is artificial—particularly the dreaded non-“assault weapon” market—and driven mainly by government. I’ve been involved with guns for over a quarter of a century—buying, selling, importing, repairing, building, designing. I’ve owned everything from antiques to the latest hardware straight off the drawing boards. And I know others who do the same, due either to my local membership in clubs or ranges, or to international correspondence about my gun web sites. And without exception, the only people I personally know who have bought either AR or AK pattern rifles bought them solely because one government or another was trying to make them harder to get. Every single one. I own both myself. I actually had no interest in either … but if I ever changed my mind in future, I might not be able to do anything about it (at least not legally, which is the only way I operate). So I beat the government and bought what I might want someday. Other people of my acquaintance buy them … and in large batches … because they anticipate reselling after the price rockets up. Supply and demand, etc etc.

      We can always rely on the government to pursue the stupidest possible goals in the most ineffective possible way. And we can rely on liberals and other totalitarian fanboys to do their mindless best to make it happen. Though to be fair, the gun-grabbers have a long way to go before reaching the supreme majesty of 1920-1933 and Prohibition, perhaps the stupidest thing any US government has ever done … and a failure still extracting a price to this day. But, as our totalitarian Left is working toward gun prohibition, the nation may yet reach hitherto unexplored depths of unnecessary idiocy. I anticipate quite a show. Or perhaps a showdown.

        YellowSnakeInChief in reply to tom_swift. | February 28, 2018 at 6:34 pm

        Maybe buying batches will turn out to be a good investment. I don’t know.

        If you look carefully, you might notice that my comments tend to be to be about things I find illogical, counter factual, caricatures or outright bias.

        Personally, I recognize that it would take generations and a lot of blood to do what they did in Australia. I don’t see that happening.

        A couple of months ago I commented that I was considering buying a shotgun along with a woman neighbor who lives alone. Instead of getting some constructive advice or a comment that I was capable of thought, what I got was a bunch of ridiculous speculation that I would be a ‘bad’ gun owner. That I wouldn’t get training. That it would all end in tragedy or some such BS. They don’t know me. I am meticulous in anything I get involved in. Besides the world is shades of grey.

        I get comments claiming I don’t think logically. Buddy you may know guns, but logic is my business. My degrees are in Computer Science. When I was younger I often misinterpreted situations because I believed the world to be logical. I have learned better. People here are often profoundly illogical or don’t recognize the mirror image to a position they think is unassailable.

        As far as I can tell, after Obama got elected there was a similar obsession with buying guns before Obama tried to take them all away. It didn’t happen. I assume the market absorbed them. The manufacturers sure made out like bandits. While my belief in surveys is greatly diminished since Trump, there seems to be a steady line that shows fewer people possessing guns, but buying more.

        Remember, this article started with a purposely misleading headline. There seems to be little question that the students spoke up spontaneously from their pain. That organizations that share their point of view offered help is very different from claiming that the organizations are ‘behind’ the march.

          “SnakeInChief…”

          Congratulations on your promotion.

          You lauded the actions of a teacher who irresponsibly and maliciously discharged a firearm in a school. Sounds to me like you will make a bad gun owner (or already are) if you thinks actions like that are a good idea.

          And your comments about what you find “illogical, counter factual, caricatures or outright bias” would be a lot more interesting if they contained more logic and facts, didn’t make caricatures of the people who frequent this site, and had less bias yourself.

          You come here and insult everyone’s intelligence with your feelings for arguments and wonder why no one takes you seriously. Here, here is your advice for owning a shotgun … get a 20 gauge, use 000 buck, go to the range occasionally. Most people with a half of a brain could have found this on the intrawebz. So let’s dispense with why you claim to be here.

          As to anyone knowing you, what more can we know than what you say on this blog, and pretty much you say stupid liberal shit without any facts or logical arguments to back you up. People may not like you but they have to respect that you really have a logical conclusion if only you would present it. Maybe somebody who disagrees will chime in and counter your argument, but as of now your arguments are fallacious and that lets people draw conclusions about things you might do IRL, and they are going to be 99.9% in nailing what you do.

          YellowSnakeInChief in reply to YellowSnakeInChief. | February 28, 2018 at 8:53 pm

          @DaveGinOly I guess you lack something since you cannot recognize obvious satire.

          Who could possibly laud what appear to be a very troubled man?

          YellowSnakeInChief in reply to YellowSnakeInChief. | February 28, 2018 at 9:16 pm

          @Shane Remedial reading for you, too. Now if this happened IRL, I would worry if it was my writing. But it doesn’t.

          Thanks for the advice. But I found a local reputable dealer. In the end, the situation resolved without a show of any force by a civilian. Isn’t that best?

          Your short sightedness shows your childish mentality. You think that owning a gun is some sort of whim to make you feel like a big man? Ohhh today some guy said bad stuff to me and now I need to have a big penis to make sure that doesn’t happen, ooooohhhh wait nvm it has a been a month I don’t need a big penis anymore. Ignorance is your perfect ally.

          I seriously don’t know why you post here. Everyone sees what you are and you will change no one’s mind, nor will they think of you the next time they wipe their ass, you are THAT irrelevant. But hey go back to your school buddies and tell them how you showed up the stupid ole rednecks and made them all mad an’ stuff.

          YellowSnakeInChief in reply to YellowSnakeInChief. | March 1, 2018 at 12:52 am

          @Shane We’re a bit defensive, aren’t we? I didn’t write or imply any of what you wrote. But you know who referred to sizes in national debates and now that you mention those attributes – YEAH

          Boy, you guys can’t stand one dissenter. Seems like you have a very weak myth.

          Whelp I guess you didn’t do so well in the english class. I guess you can retake it when you go to college.

          You have yet to dissent. Dissent requires logic and rational representation of facts that support said logic. I have yet to that in ANY of your posts. Don’t they teach you that in HS? Maybe you have to wait to college for that now.

          So contrary to your view of yourself you are not a dissenter, we have a name for people like you. Perhaps you can guess what it is YellowTroll.

          Actually most of the comments you get here are telling you what a cretinous dipshit you are.

        Ragspierre in reply to tom_swift. | February 28, 2018 at 6:40 pm

        That was good, Tom.

        And, as with Prohibition, the Collective would meet a massive response by way of civil disobedience.

        Even the “assault weapons ‘ban'” of a few years ago grandfathered in millions of scary black rifles.

          DaveGinOly in reply to Ragspierre. | February 28, 2018 at 7:10 pm

          A few decades ago, the first time an “assault weapon” ban was proposed in Rhode Island, I was moved to protest by buying the most accurate bolt-action firearm I could afford – a Steyr-Mannlicher PSG II. (I already own an H&K 91A1, so didn’t need another “assault weapon.”) That thing could shoot better than I could, and I could put five rounds into less than .5″ at 100 yards and I’m by no means a “trained rifleman.” (Although the gun did have a set trigger, so I bought and read the book “Managing the Set Trigger Rifle.”)

          YellowSnakeInChief in reply to Ragspierre. | March 1, 2018 at 1:05 am

          So the ‘Collective’ was responsible for Prohibition? Is that same Collective responsible for the Drug Prohibition?

          Are all the Southern Baptists part of the Collective? Bill Moyers was a SB. When he was taught the tenets, one of them was that everyone had to interpret the beliefs for themselves. Not so much now. So, during an interview, he asked the Chairman of the SBC if that was still true. The Chair said yes, but if you interpret correctly …. So I guess they are definitely part of a Collective that all independently came to think alike.

          Boy this Collective is kind of problematic. I am sure glad I am not part of it.

          Shane in reply to Ragspierre. | March 1, 2018 at 1:51 am

          Well YellowTroll you may not be a part of it but you are it’s greatest cheerleader. Run along now and play with your spiritual brethren, Antifa.

          Milhouse in reply to Ragspierre. | March 2, 2018 at 11:35 am

          Yes, Prohibition was a “Progressive” project, the crowning glory of the “Progressive” movement. Passing it was the reason women were given the vote. It was supposed to transform America, just like 0bama said he wanted to do. Well, it transformed America, all right.

          As for Xian fundamentalism, my outsider’s understanding of it is that it says everyone has to interpret the Bible for themselves, and if someone is open and honestly seeking God will guide them to the correct interpretation. Therefore if you land on the wrong one it shows didn’t get that guidance because you weren’t letting it in. Any actual fundamentalists here, feel free to correct me.

        YellowSnakeInChief in reply to tom_swift. | February 28, 2018 at 6:46 pm

        One other thing: You can’t blame liberals,alone, for the stupidity it the world. I just got finished with a history of the Middle East going back to 1900 when oil was discovered and 1st became important. The west could not have done a better job of fomenting the current terrorism if they tried.

        Exxon-Mobil comes to mind.

        Besides, the EPA was the answer to a problem. You don’t like the EPA? I didn’t like the problem.

          So you make all these little boxes that people fit into, but have no idea whatsoever what motivates people (a typical problem of a totalitarian). Maybe you should do a little research on what is conservative and what is libertarian and what they stand for (generally). It might get you an A on your school research paper if you put it in a disparaging light.

          YellowSnakeInChief in reply to YellowSnakeInChief. | February 28, 2018 at 8:46 pm

          Forget research papers. Why don’t you get someone to give you remedial help with reading comprehension.

          Let me help you a bit although it will do no good. Ideologies of all sorts ultimately land up at the same place because they cannot admit error. They have to force facts to their ideology.

          Now I admit it. Liberals are stupid and Conservatives are brilliant. Happy?

          Par for the course … barbed insult out of no where. No reasoned disagreement no counter arguments, just insults. That says if you are not physically a child, then mentally you are.

          You betray your ideology and show you complete ignorance here:

          Now I admit it. Liberals are stupid and Conservatives are brilliant. Happy?

          You are in waaay over your head, and the worst part is your arrogance won’t let you see it. Run along YellowTroll the adults are talking.

          There was no problem that the EPA could answer. The environment was getting cleaner, not dirtier. The fact that by 1969 river fires were so rare that even a tiny and insignificant fire, that was put out so quickly that nobody managed to get any pictures of it, still got national headlines, proves how clean things had got in the decade or so since people decided they wanted the luxury of clean air and water. So there was no need for an EPA

All eyes look to Soros.

Ok. Ok.
Go march for your lives, but my life and my family’s will be protected in another way.

I do not know of any studies which have been done on activist interception of immediately grieving people to see if they get better sooner or forever stuck in a cycle of anger-bargaining-hate-bargaining. My guess is the interruption of Kubler-Ross progression leaves them forever stuck. About a 1/3 of people “recover”, a third wobbles back and forth and a 1/3 never recover. I saw a family torn apart forever when a middle daughter died in a water skiing accident … the patents so grieved it left the other daughters diminished.

As for Dick’s…. follow the money… any promised loans from Bloomberg et al for the company? Got to have a safety net for such over the top virtue signaling.

    DaveGinOly in reply to alaskabob. | February 28, 2018 at 7:13 pm

    After Newtown, Dicks promised to stop selling “assault weapons.” So they established a subsidiary and sold them that way. The current claim may likewise be meaningless grand-standing or it may be sincere. Either way, it should hurt their business.

      So if they stopped selling the evil “assault rifles” back then, did they start selling them again? If that is the case then that would seem … what’s the word I am looking for …

Rent A Mob with useful idiot’s kids. The kids get a few days off school, some parents get to bask in the virtue signaling, others enjoy a break from the kids.

It is SOP fr the liberal/Progressives organizations n this country to exploit children. They have been doing it since the 1030s. Of course, many conservative organizations now do the same thing. It is all designed to generate the desired response based upon feelings, rather than intellectual analysis and logic. Of course, these groups have little or no compassion for the children. People, other than the leaders of these groups, are unimportant. The Cause is what is important.

Chuckin Houston | February 28, 2018 at 5:17 pm

Normally we’d have little compunction at hitting back at the various left-wing and anti-guns groups attacking 2nd Amendment rights, but with these kids we tend to hesitate. We need to realize that the left is employing emotional bullying and using these kids as human shields.

I guess for these kids, it’s all fun and smiles that their classmates are dead.

    Getting them ready for college.

    (They’re probably teaching them to have sex with one another on the bus.)

    Where is De Vos on purging leftists from our schools?

    No. I think that’s wrong entirely. What these kids are doing is what people who face a traumatic event all tend to do…something. SOME THING that makes them feel they have some control, understand WHY, and WHO. We see it all the time, and it’s an impulse that leads many people to grasp onto absolutely insane conclusions. Of all populations, adolescents are perhaps the most in danger of this, since they really do not think well. “Action” is a balm, and thinking is hard…

      I think it’s some of both. If they were getting the same treatment for lambasting the FBI and Sheriff Israel they would be all over it. As you said, “thinking is hard” and feeling is not

      The Nazi Party in 1930s Germany rallied young people with calls to “action,” as the “man of action” was the Nazi ideal – a person willing to act based on feelings (rather than thought) and at the direction of party leadership. This ideal came from post-modernism, a world view that had been embraced by Germany even before the Nazis came to be.

      The Nazis also embraced the idea that “truth” could be divorced from “facts,” and that “truth” varied as party leaders determined what was best for the party at any given time.

      I urge people to read The Cause of Hitler’s Germany (Leonard Peikoff). Written in 1982 about how the party co-opted and corrupted Germany’s culture in order to gain power, it reads very much like a book written in 2082, about how fascists gained power in the United States earlier in the century.

        A more neutral stance from someone who was there would be William Shirer’s Rise and Fall of the Third Reich. You may have to make your own understandings but the clarity of how it happened is relevant even today.

        The Weimar republic had its own version of the GOPe. The nazis could not have taken power withou their cowardice and corruption.

        Sound familiar?

      You are right, these young people are doing what young people usually do, whatever they think is correct. However, in most cases, they lack the education and the experience to make sound decisions. There is a reason why people are legal dependents of older people until they reach their majority, usually 18yoa. People do not travel thousands of miles to seek enlightenment from a 17 surfer in Tibet. The Founding Fathers were not a bunch of 18-20 year olds. The point is, while a young person has a good idea from time to time, it is stupid to assume that they actually know what they are talking about. I wouldn’t make many life decisions based upon the advice of a 17 year old.

Was that picture of the kids from just a day or two after the tragedy?
Mourning must be hard at such a young age.

How’s the campaign to lower the voting age going?

Isn’t it bigoted to have little gender binary stick figures in their poster? I thought these extremist left-wing wackos were all down with gender binary.

    Is that what you call thinking? Perhaps being a prince has led to too much inbreeding.

      He is an intellectual giant in his thought process compared to you. Once again, why are you here?

      Hey Yellowsnake! it’s been fun mocking you the last few days. And in fact, I get why you do it now. There is kind of a high playing the game. Putting a string of words together to say, anything you care about, I care about better than you. Facts not required. Just a verbal jockey for “I’m better than you”.

      Had you finally admitted I was correct that gun deaths pale to car deaths, I just would have moved the goal posts to drugs and so on. You could never have cared more than me. Isn’t that the game?

      I get you are having fun. But it’s not really very funny. There are real problems in the world that need solving.

      You are like the kids in the picture. Having a great time as a useful tool in someone else’s power game. But the reality is you aren’t solving anything, nor is that your goal. You are just getting off pushing people on the shoulder. You are just a bully that gets in the way of the people who are trying to come up with difficult solutions to the world’s difficult problems.

      So go have fun. Like the kids above, enjoy your little power trip. Adios, amigo.

      Ooooh, you hurt my feelings. NOT.

      G’wan, kid, run along – you’re starting to annoy me.

Shocking how grief-stricken these kids are, how dare anyone criticize them?

Just look at that photo, can’t you tell?

How long before these kids realize they are just tools for the socialists and will be dropped like a rock at the first opportunity?
