According to the mainstream media, the student-initiated march for gun control represents nothing more than a spontaneous effort to fight against what they consider is wrong. However, a recent report from BuzzFeed reveals that left-wing activists and donors are essentially the driving force behind this move.
According to the report, a slew of well-funded leftist groups are working with the students behind the scenes in order to support and execute in the most effective way possible the March for Our Lives next month. The leftist groups that are exploiting these young students include Everytown for Gun Safety, Giffords, Planned Parenthood, Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in American and MoveOn.
Apparently, in order to push their own agenda, these left-wing groups have moved extremely fast to take full advantage of the emotional momentum from the Florida high school shooting.
Basically, they are using these kids in the most disgusting way just to move forward a political talking point. What seems even worse in this despicable display of political exploitation is the fact that even the mainstream media is taking the same steps.
As reported by BuzzFeed, a spokesperson for the public relations firm 42West revealed that this powerful company is also acting as a driving force behind the march by managing the student’s media campaign.
Naturally, we’re talking about one of the most important PR firms in the United States, considering that its list of clients includes celebrities such as Meryl Streep, Tom Cruise, Conan O’Brien, and even Rihanna.
While this won’t be exactly the first progressive march that will take place in the President Trump era, the truth is that the left is betting a lot on this one.
After all, it is an undeniable fact that the emotional momentum will be quite high in order to push gun control and the repeal of the second amendment.
While facts don’t back the leftist claim on this particular issue, this side of the political spectrum is exploiting feelings to the point where the social polarization promises to get even worse.
According to recent reports, the American Federation of Teachers is also backing the students in their anti-gun march. Of course, this seems like a very powerful support considering that we’re talking about the largest teacher’s union in the United States.
As reported by BuzzFeed, the union’s president Randi Weingarten said that they are supporting the students with their experience in terms of logistics and strategy in order to put on a march in Washington in the most efficient way.
In addition, Weingarten told BuzzFeed that considering that it is quite “early,” people will have the time to organize the march, so the message against the government and the National Rifle Association (NRA) could be loud and clear.
Apparently, they are helping the young kids with strategy, logistics, and planning, not only for next month’s March For Our Lives rally but also for any other public manifestation they would like to make.
While the students and the entire American left are trying to push the narrative that what happened in Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland was because of the current gun laws, a recent Rasmussen poll indicates that most Americans actually blame government failure.
According to that poll, 54 percent of American adults believe that the element to blame for the mass shooting was the failure of government agencies to respond to the numerous warning signs from Nikolas Cruz.
On the other hand, the Rasmussen poll indicates that 33 percent attribute the mass shooting more to a lack of adequate gun control, while only an eleven percent believe there were other elements to blame.
Naturally, we’re talking about a huge difference that liberals refuse to accept. After all, several members of the Democratic Party and the mainstream media have come out in favor of gun control measures.
In fact, the left has executed such an incredible amount of pressure to tear down the NRA over the last few days that a number of corporations are now boycotting this powerful organization.
While reality clearly contradicts their narrative, the American left has always shown a threatening irresponsibility when it comes to pushing for what they believe is a noble cause.
Naturally, the way they are using these students is just the latest example.
