The liberal media has been trying to make a hero out of teen anti-gun activist Emma Gonzalez for weeks now. The liberal magazine the New Yorker has really jumped the shark. They’re now comparing Gonzalez to Joan of Arc. Isn’t it funny how liberals are OK with religious figures when they think it serves their purposes?
Take a look at this:
Joan of Arc and the Passion of Emma González
Since the mass shooting on Valentine’s Day at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, in Parkland, Florida, in which a former student of the school killed seventeen students and staff with a legally acquired semiautomatic rifle, several of the survivors have become veteran public speakers. At the March for Our Lives, on Saturday, in Washington, D.C., speaking before thousands of people from a stage that framed the outline of the Capitol, they delivered remarks at least as articulate as those generally heard on the Hill.
David Hogg gestured with disdain as he called on his fellow first-time voters to turn out for the midterms in 2018, and told lawmakers who were funded by the N.R.A. to “get your résumés ready.” In a moment of unscripted eloquence, Samantha Fuentes, a senior who was wounded in the attack, was so overcome with emotion—“Lawmakers and politicians will scream, ‘Guns are not the issue,’ but can’t look me in the eye,” she said—that she broke off and vomited behind the lectern.
But it was Emma González, a Stoneman Douglas senior, who provided the afternoon’s most memorable moment. Only days after the attack, González offered a potent combination of composure and fury when she delivered a speech at an anti-gun rally in Fort Lauderdale, her refrain of “We call B.S.” swiftly cemented as one of this nascent movement’s slogans.
Do these people not know how ridiculous they sound?
