Why March For Our Lives isn’t as great as you believe it is.
Another midterm election is right around the corner as Americans across the nation are debating as to where their vote is going to. A ‘blue wave’ is expected as organizations such as ‘March For Our Lives’ is prepared to unseat almost every Republican in both chambers. However, high school juniors and seniors might have the advantage here.
They are more induced to affiliate with Democrats rather than Republicans, specifically 34% of high schoolers. With the current narrative going around that assault weapons must be banned and high capacity magazines need to be abolished, who do you think they’re looking towards?
You guessed it: Democrats.
In light of the latest events, it’s clear that young teenagers and college students tend to walk behind the hysteria produced by the MSM instead of educating themselves and doing the research. For example, when I asked a protestor if they were willing to ban assault weapons, they simply said yes. When told that there had already been one from 1994-2004, but failed, they went back on their statement and said a ban on assault weapons would no longer be necessary.
Another example is the transparent close-mindedness of young, ignorant progressive Democrats. (By definition, ignorance is not knowing.) When asked for a ban on assault weapons, three protestors said yes, but when asked about a ban on a Ruger Mini 14, they said, “No.” When asked why not, they responded “It doesn’t look scary”.
A Ruger Mini 14 is semi automatic like an AR-15 and uses .223 ammunition like an AR-15.
In fact, perpetrators of the 6 of the past 96 mass shootings have used AR-15s. And progressive Democrats are calling for a ban on those.
Teenage progressive Democrats only follow one of two things: a learned behavior from their parents or listening to CNN, MSNBC, or mainstream media outlets that want to take your firearms away because they are “scary looking”.
This is what’s scary:
In 1966, Chinese dictator and authoritarian Mao Zedong implemented a student led revolution called the “Red Guards”. In the book China’s Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution, a leader said this (pg.105): “Chairman Mao has defined our future as an armed revolutionary youth organization…So if Chairman Mao is our Red-Commander-in-Chief and we are his Red Guards, who can stop us? First we will make China Maoist from inside out and then we will help the working people of other countries make the world red…And then the whole universe.”
“We will make China Maoist.” That’s the equivalent of saying, “We will make China Jinpengist”. (Although Chinese Congress recently removed term limits) The ultimate goal of the Red Guards was to “rebel against the system” all over China.
Another example is the Young Communist League of Cuba, also known as the Cuban Youth. Founded in 1965, the Cuban Youth continue to be active day in and day out with over 600,000 active members.
Last but not least, you have the Hitler Youth. Carrying the motto “Blood and Honor”, the Hitler Youth required boys from 14-18 to join the Nazi Party. They constantly disrupted public venues and the sole vision was to be racist. During a speech to Hitler Youth, Adolf Hitler said this:
“The state must declare the child to be the most precious treasure of the people. As long as the government is perceived as working for the benefit of the children, the people will happily endure almost any curtailment of liberty and almost any deprivation.” If you’re asking what this means, it means what you’re seeing politicians doing.
Agenda driven Democrats are using children as political human shields to simply push their leftist agenda, along with Mao and the Red Guards movement. So, the first step in attempting to get rid of school shootings is to eliminate and abolish the Gun Free School Zones Act of 1990.
Studies show that 98% of school shootings occur in gun free zones, making it extremely difficult to have the possibility of eliminating the threat.
They all carry the strictest gun laws, yet are able to maintain the highest crime rates in the nation.
Now onto the people. David Hogg, Emma Gonzalez, and Cameron Casky are the students who have been organizing March For Our Lives. These students experienced a devastating tragedy where they will never be able to see their classmates again due to the failure of Sheriff Scott Israel, cowards like Scot Peterson, and the remote nonfulfillment of the FBI.
However, there lies one of the major problems within the organization. Why is there no backlash or even talk from the three students about the mentioned above? In fact, Hogg has defended Broward County Sheriff’s Office Sheriff Scott Israel.
Contrary to popular belief, these kids and their organization actually discriminate against conservatives. Kyle Kashuv, a classmate of theirs at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, is a conservative student. When wanting to join March For Our Lives, he was told no by the three simply due to his political beliefs.
Kyle wants to debate all three on the topic of gun violence, but David, Emma, and Cameron have all said no. Kashuv has met with FLOTUS Melania Trump and President Trump on the issue.
In particular, David Hogg is not a role model whatsoever. In an interview, David used vulgar language towards politicians and even his own parents who have raised him for the past 17 years.
“Adults don’t know how to ‘use a f*cking democracy'”.
“When your old-a** parent is like, ‘I don’t know how to send an iMessage,’ and you’re just like, ‘Give me the fing phone and let me handle it.’ Sadly, that’s what we have to do with our government; our parents don’t know how to use a fing democracy, so we have to.”
“It just makes me think what sick f*ers out there want to continue to sell more guns, murder more children, and honestly just get reelected,” Hogg said. “What type of shiy person does that? They could have blood from children splattered all over their faces and they wouldn’t take action, because they all still see these dollar signs.”
Also, Hogg said, “What if politicians weren’t the b**** of the NRA?” Okay, David. Let’s list out the actual ‘what if’s’.
What if we didn’t exploit teenagers trauma to push your leftist agenda? What if the media actually showed the kids, like Kyle Kashuv, who disagree with anti-gun narratives? What if we had listened to the NRA who called for armed security guards in schools back in 2012?
Because the NRA kills kids, right? Wrong.
Here’s some food for thought for progressive Democrats:
Where was the outrage when Steve Scalise was shot? Was there none because he’s Republican?
Where was the outrage when Kate Steinle was shot?
Where was the outrage when a Bangladeshi native immigrating through a broken and unnecessary lottery program and mowed down 8 people?
Where was the outrage when the Sandy Hook school shooting took place?
There wasn’t and now there is. Why? Because mainstream media with declared bias are using David Hogg and Emma Gonzalez and political human shields and puppets.
