You won’t get gun control by disarming law-abiding citizens. There’s only one way to get real gun control: Disarm the thugs and the criminals, lock them up and if you don’t actually throw away the key, at least lose it for a long time… It’s a nasty truth, but those who seek to inflict harm are not fazed by gun controllers. I happen to know this from personal experience. – President Ronald Reagan
TheHill.com reports that
Oprah Winfrey tweeted Tuesday that she was joining George and Amal Clooney in supporting the pro-gun control “March for Our Lives” to be held in Washington, D.C., next month.
“George and Amal, I couldn’t agree with you more. I am joining forces with you and will match your $500,000 donation to ‘March For Our Lives,’” Winfrey tweeted.
George and Amal, I couldn’t agree with you more. I am joining forces with you and will match your $500,000 donation to ‘March For Our Lives.’ These inspiring young people remind me of the Freedom Riders of the 60s who also said we’ve had ENOUGH and our voices will be heard.
The Clooneys said earlier Tuesday that they would be donating half a million dollars to the event and personally participating in the march on March 24.
“Amal and I are so inspired by the courage and eloquence of these young men and women from Stoneman Douglas High School,” George Clooney told ITK in a statement Tuesday, referring to the school where a gunman killed 17 and injured many more last week.
The march’s website states that the event is to demand that children’s “lives and safety become a priority and that we end gun violence and mass shootings in our schools today.”
According to their website, marchforourlives.com,
March For Our Lives is created by, inspired by, and led by students across the country who will no longer risk their lives waiting for someone else to take action to stop the epidemic of mass school shootings that has become all too familiar. In the tragic wake of the seventeen lives brutally cut short in Florida, politicians are telling us that now is not the time to talk about guns. March For Our Lives believes the time is now.
On March 24, the kids and families of March For Our Lives will take to the streets of Washington, DC to demand that their lives and safety become a priority. The collective voices of the March For Our Lives movement will be heard.
School safety is not a political issue. There cannot be two sides to doing everything in our power to ensure the lives and futures of children who are at risk of dying when they should be learning, playing, and growing. The mission and focus of March For Our Lives is to demand that a comprehensive and effective bill be immediately brought before Congress to address these gun issues. No special interest group, no political agenda is more critical than timely passage of legislation to effectively address the gun violence issues that are rampant in our country.
If you believe that this is a spontaneous, grassroots movement like the Tea Party was, you are wrong.
An organization named Everytown For Gun Safety is one of the organizers.
Everytown is a movement of Americans working together to end gun violence and build safer communities. Gun violence touches every town in America. For too long, change has been thwarted by the Washington gun lobby and by leaders who refuse to take common-sense steps that will save lives.
But something is changing. More than 4 million mayors, moms, cops, teachers, survivors, gun owners, and everyday Americans have come together to make their own communities safer. Together, we are fighting for the changes that we know will save lives.
Everytown has been around for several years. They are very well-connected within the Liberal Hierarchy, running in the same circles as Clooney, Oprah, and other Liberal Elitists.
In fact, after the Law Vegas Massacre last fall, Everytown put out a Public Service Announcement in order to take advantage of that mass shooting for the purpose of furthering their political agenda, as Breitbart.com reported…
Emma Stone, Melissa McCarthy, and Sheryl Crow are among a number of celebrities urging Americans to “reject the NRA” and concealed carry of firearms in the wake of the shooting at a Las Vegas country music concert this month.
Laura Dern, Bill Hader, and Adam Scott are also taking part in the anti-gun campaign, as is noted gun control advocate Julianne Moore. The celebrities are part of the Michael Bloomberg-funded Everytown for Gun Safety PSA against the NRA specifically, and against gun rights generally.
In typical Everytown fashion, the PSA does not present real solutions to the attack in Vegas–after all, the attacker complied with all gun controls, including background checks, so no new law would have stopped him. Even gun control advocate Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) admitted as much on the October 8 airing of Face the Nation. Therefore, in lieu of a substantive position, the celebrities are urging Americans to call Congress and oppose things that had nothing to do with the Las Vegas attack.
Per discoverthenetworks.org, Everytown even shares a Political Consulting and Strategy Advisor with Former President Barack Hussein Obama, among others…
270 Strategies (270S) is a consulting firm that was launched in 2013 by supporters of President Barack Obama. Their objective was to help left-wing “campaigns, companies, and causes” use “grassroots organizing” methods to “transform communities” and “keep doing big things to change the world” even after January of 2017, when Obama’s presidency was due to end. From 2013-15, the firm served more than 160 clients across a variety of sectors. In the political sphere, for instance, 270S’s clients included such groups as Battleground Texas, iVote, and Ready for Hillary. The organization also provided key services for Cory Booker’s 2013 run for the U.S. Senate (in New Jersey), Terry McAuliffe’s 2013 gubernatorial campaign in Virginia, Rahm Emanuel’s 2015 mayoral re-election bid in Chicago, and Ro Khanna’s (unsuccessful) 2014 run for a congressional seat representing the Bay Area and Silicon Valley.
In areas not related directly to electoral politics, 270S has supported clients like the Service Employees International Union, Planned Parenthood, the Environmental Defense Fund, Everytown for Gun Safety, the College Board, and AARP to promote their respective agendas vis-a-vis a wide range of issues—including immigration reform, health care access, “women’s equality,” a higher minimum wage, education standards, and efforts to avert the purported dangers associated with “climate change.”
Make no mistake, gentle readers, it was not the honest heartfelt grief of fellow students from Parkland High School which has led to the “March For Our Lives” Event on March 24th in Washington, DC.
This is the same crowd whom the Russians have been using both before and after the election of President Donald J. Trump as “useful idiots” to spread discord, hate, and division within our Sovereign Nation.
One final thought:
After Obama became the 44th President of the United States of America, among his first visitors were George Clooney, Oprah Winfrey, and George Soros.
I believe that if you dug into the funding of “Everytown” and the non-profits which comprise that organization, you would see some of his money at work.
The first thing that anyone who ever wants to gain control of a Sovereign Nation does is to come after the guns.
These Modern American Liberals whom I have named “The New Bolsheviks” are no exception.
Meanwhile, over in Moscow, Vladimir Putin and the “Old Bosheviks” are rubbing their hands together and giggling like a bunch of schoolgirls on Prom Night.
Always…FOLLOW THE MONEY.
Until He Comes,
