The media has been hyping the March for Our Lives and the supposed youth movement that’s driving it. But it turns out that it’s all smoke and mirrors. Of all the people who attended the march in Washington, less than 10 percent were under the age of 18.
The Washington Free Beacon reports:
Report: Only 10 Percent of D.C. March for Our Lives Protesters Were Under 18
Only about a tenth of participants in the March for Our Lives rally in Washington D.C. over the weekend were actually minors, according to a sociology professor’s analysis.
University of Maryland professor Dana R. Fisher has been surveying rallies and protests in the nation’s capital since Donald Trump’s inauguration in preparation for an upcoming book on the “Resistance” to the president. In a Washington Post analysis published Wednesday, she detailed how she randomly sampled 256 attendees of the gun-control rally.
“Contrary to what’s been reported in many media accounts, the D.C. March for Our Lives crowd was not primarily made up of teenagers,” Fisher wrote. “Only about 10 percent of the participants were under 18.”
“The average age of the adults in the crowd was just under 49 years old, which is older than participants at the other marches I’ve surveyed but similar to the age of the average participant at the Million Moms March in 2000, which was also about gun control,” she continued.
What this means is that 90 percent of the people who attended the march were the same old left wing activists who go to every left wing march in Washington.
The entire narrative around this so-called movement is astroturf.
