Fresh astroturf

The antis have planted some fresh astroturf:

“When they got prayers and thoughts from U.S. lawmakers after a massacre at a Florida high school that left 17 students and teachers dead, thousands of young people turned to the country’s largest gun-control advocacy group to learn how to make their voices heard. Students flooded Everytown for Gun Safety with calls after last week’s Florida school massacre, prompting the creation of its first student branch, the group said on Wednesday … The new “Students Demand Action” branch is expected to try to lift a ban on government research into gun violence, get out the notoriously absent youth vote and even run for elected office themselves …”

I don’t believe this at all.

This stinks of professional activists using kids as a front while controlling everything in the background.  I’ll even go so far as to say SDA was thought out long before and Everytown was waiting for an opportune time to unveil it.

Here’s evidence to support my theory:

Women’s March organizers are encouraging students, teachers and their allies to walk out of schools on March 14 to protest gun violence. They’re demanding that Congress take legislative action on gun control in the wake of last week’s deadly school shooting in Florida instead of merely tweeting their thoughts and prayers …”

The phony “Women’s March” was anything but grassroots.

The media is all in with the narrative:

Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School student Colton Haab said he was approached by CNN to ask a question at Wednesday night’s town hall but decided not to after the network gave him a “scripted question,” quashing one he wrote himself. Haab, a member of the Junior ROTC shielded students while the school was under attack from the shooter, said he was going to ask about using veterans as armed security guards. …”

The good news is that the antigunners and their media allies have been trying this tactic for decades and as time moves on more and more of the public sees right through it.
