Today is the day that marches are scheduled to be held in our nation’s capital and 852 other cities across America and the world, in protest of “gun violence” and to advocate Gun Control.
The Main Stream Media is describing this worldwide event as being “organized by the students of Parkland High School” as a response to the Valentine’s Day Massacre committed by a troubled young man whom it turns out was known to have needed to have been placed in a psychiatric care facility two years before.
According to the organization’s 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.
Sounds pretty noble, huh?
It would be.
Except for the fact that the Parkland Students are not running this show. Here are a list of the true organizers and the “money behind the march”…
According to its website,
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.
This organization began as “Mayors From Gun Safety”. It was founded and is funded by Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who is a multi-millionaire.
The Women’s March Youth EMPOWER Toolkit is an initiative of Women’s March Youth through a coalition with Peace First, Rise To Run, Teen Vogue, The Justice League NYC, The Gathering For Justice, and Rock The Vote. Women’s March EMPOWER upholds the unity principles of the Women’s March platform. Our goal is to provide young people with the tools needed to create high school and college chapters that guide students in making a positive impact in their communities. We believe that the single most powerful act we can do is prepare young people with the skills and commitments to take actions around causes that matter to them with courage, compassion and collaboration.

I’m sure you remember Radical Islamist Linda Sarsour, one of the main organizers of the Women’s March Movement.
Guess who funds her and the organization’s Empower Youth project, which the National School Walkouts and this march fall under?
Last Year, Feminist Writer Asri Q. Normani of The New York Times reported concerning the funding for the “Women’s March on Washington” that
…[George] Soros has funded, or has close relationships with, at least 56 of the [Women’s] march’s “partners,” including “key partners” Planned Parenthood, which opposes Trump’s anti-abortion policy, and the National Resource Defense Council, which opposes Trump’s environmental policies. The other Soros ties with “Women’s March” organizations include the partisan MoveOn.org (which was fiercely pro-Clinton), the National Action Network (which has a former executive director lauded by Obama senior advisor Valerie Jarrett as “a leader of tomorrow” as a march co-chair and another official as “the head of logistics”). Other Soros grantees who are “partners” in the march are the American Civil Liberties Union, Center for Constitutional Rights, Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch.
By the way, yes, Planned Parenthood IS funding these events which are supposedly being held for the purpose of preserving life.
Irony is embarrassed.
And last, but certainly not least, the very people who are in charge of our children and grandchildren during the hours in which they are supposed to be learning Readin’, Writin’, and ‘Rithmatic, not Radicalization.
According to Buzzfeed News, as reported in an article posted on 2/27/18,
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.”
Founded in Chicago in 1916, the American Federation of Teachers (AFT) was almost immediately welcomed into the American Federation of Labor by the latter’s President, Samuel Gompers. The AFT would quickly charter 174 locals in its first four years, gaining a membership of approximately 10,000 during that period. The decade after World War I, however, was a period of intense struggle for the union. While the AFT fought for academic freedom and tenure laws, school boards conducted campaigns that pressured teachers to resign from it — often forcing them to sign “yellow-dog” contracts in which they promised not to unionize.
…Like the labor movement in general, however, the AFT was infiltrated by members of the Communist Party, particularly during the latter years of the Great Depression.
…The AFT is currently part of America Votes, a national coalition of leftwing grassroots, get-out-the-vote organizations. The AFT also co-founded and provides funding for Free Exchange on Campus, which is also heavily funded by George Soros’ Open Society Institute. As part of the progressive campaign for single-payer healthcare, the AFT joined forces with the Soros-funded Health Care for America Now! in 2009. In December of that year, the AFT also co-founded Defend Education, a leftist coalition that opposed private schools and called for increased funding for public education.
In recent years, AFT has donated money to such left-wing organizations as The American Prospect, Americans for Democratic Action, the Ballot Initiative Strategy Center, the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, the Children’s Defense Fund, the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation, the Economic Policy Institute, the Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights, the NAACP, the William J. Clinton Foundation, and Women’s Policy Inc.
Just as with “spontaneous grassroots” Liberal Movements such as Occupy Wall Street and the Women’s March, what appears to be a graceful swan floating effortlessly across a glassy pond on the surface, is actually ugly feet paddling furiously underneath.
The Professional Protesters of these “nonprofit” organizations are the ugly feet to the beautiful swan known as the March For Our Lives.
I’m calling them “ugly” because, gentle readers, there is nothing beautiful about using children to further a political cause.
It’s nothing new, I know.
Heck,there is a picture going around Facebook of murderous maniac Adolf Hitler posing with schoolchildren as props when he was taking away the guns of Germany’s citizenry.
Using children as the face of a movement, as these politically-motivated nonprofits are doing, is fascism disguised as innocence.
Who’s going to say “no” to those innocent faces?
Every time Liberals want to take away one of our freedoms while making American Taxpayers pay out the wazoo while they are doing it, Liberals insist that “it’s for the children”.
Today’s march and the school walkouts are staged events, being held by Liberals using children as props in order to make Gun Control more palatable to the majority of Americans who remain opposed to it.
God comfort the families and friends of those savagely butchered at Parkland High School on that fateful Valentine’s Day.
However, if there had been a good guy there with a gun, as there was in the recent Maryland High School Shooting, which left 2 students injured and one dead psychopath, thanks to a brave armed School Resource Officer, today would be just another Saturday.
And, there would not have been a mass murder for Liberal Political Activists to take advantage of.
Until He Comes,
