These kids are being held up by the media as a non-political grass roots movement. But like everything else on the left, that’s all smoke and mirrors. The list of left wing organizations that is backing them is a who’s who of the far left.
The Parkland Teens Fighting For Gun Control Have The Backing Of These Huge Organizing Groups
In the days after the shooting in Parkland, Florida, that killed 17 people, the teenage survivors of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School were impossible to ignore. They blanketed cable news coverage, built a massive following on social media, and began to organize a rally in the country’s capital in support of gun reform.
Barely two weeks ago, the student survivors sat in a circle in the living room of one of their parents’ homes, planning a trip to Tallahassee to meet with lawmakers and handling nitty-gritty matters like which media outlets to talk to.
Since then, major players and organizations — including Everytown, Giffords, Move On, Planned Parenthood, and the Women’s March LA — told BuzzFeed News they are helping the students with logistics, strategy, and planning for next month’s March for Our Lives rally and beyond. Much of the specific resources the groups are providing to the Parkland students remains unclear — as is the full list of supporting organizations — but there are broad outlines.
Keep this in mind the next time one of these student “activists” appears on cable news.
Now that we know that every leftist advocacy special interest group is pushing these kids out as spokespeople, pay attention to who in media lends them credibility without disclosing that fact.
