About two weeks after what was reported as a movement by the students, forensic science specialist David Hines discovered that the whole “movement” was actually a coordinated plan from the Left. Within two days of the shooting, Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, D-Fla., was helping the kids; teacher’s unions, groups associated with Michael Bloomberg, and people connected to the Women’s March were all assisting in securing funding and promotion. Planned Parenthood, George Clooney, and Oprah Winfrey all donated money to the effort. …
… Basically, the left had money and infrastructure ready to go for an all-out assault on guns and the NRA, they just needed the right moment — the right victims.
It’s sickening, when you think about it; they were basically waiting for children to die so that they could swoop in and blame everyone they dislike, instead of the actual shooter. They paraded grieving children in front of cameras without any care for their well-being just to help their cause.
And as much as it pains me to say this, and as much as I think this was a horrible thing for the Left to do; the right should learn from these tactics. …
… Now that Donald Trump is president, the Right doesn’t appear to be starting any movements or marches or rallies — when they really should be. Just because there’s a Republican in the White House doesn’t mean the Right should stop working to get issues in front of the public.
I know, I know, there are a ton of right-leaning groups out there working on these issues behind the scenes. I’m talking about starting a national conversation, like the Tea Party did.
