Approximately 3,000 students at Margery Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida survived the murderous intentions of Nikolas Cruz on Valentine’s Day. Yet these survivors are ignored while four politically groomed anti-2nd Amendment activists are pushed in the news cycle 24/7 with their anti-American, anti-Constitutional message.
Sadly, there are even some in Washington in positions of leadership supporting this message to disarm America. It seems that our leadership in Washington understands the words of communist dictator Joesph Stalin in that “the only real power comes out of a long rifle…but “ideas are more powerful than guns. We don’t let our people have guns. Why should we let them have ideas?”
According to former Senator and former Vice President Joe Biden, the ability of the people being able to arm themselves with guns is a “prostitution of the Second Amendment.” In a speech given at the University of Pennsylvania recently Biden stated:
“I think the Second Amendment is being badly interpreted; it’s not consistent with what our founders intended. What’s happened here is the nation as a whole has decided it can no longer, in my view, continue to turn a blind eye to the prostitution of the Second Amendment here and can no longer turn a blind eye to the enormous damage being done not just in our schools but on our streets.”
I wonder if Biden read much of the words of America’s founding fathers? Alexander Hamilton stated very plainly – “The constitution shall never be construed…to prevent the people of the United States who are peaceable citizens from keeping their own arms.” James Madison clearly stated – “The Constitution preserves the advantage of being armed which Americans possess over the people of almost every other nation where the governments are afraid to trust the people with arms.” It seems there is little to misunderstand when Thomas Jefferson states – “The laws that forbid the carrying of arms are laws of such a nature. They disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes…. Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man.”
Yet that is exactly what is being done. It seems there truly are no morals in politics, merely expedience. Scoundrels are of use to the gun control agenda simply because they are…well…scoundrels.
Biden went on to praise the anti-gun Parkland students for voicing their opinions. Naturally, the other 3,000 survivors were ignored including pro-America, pro-2nd amendment students like Kyle Kashuv. Lenin coined the term “useful idiot” as a derogatory term for a person perceived as a propagandist for a cause the goals of which they are not fully aware, and who is used to push an agenda by the leaders of the cause.
It seems Washington is not above using students like Emma Gonzalez and David Hogg to push their agenda of disarmament. The communists knew that if they were given one generation…just one, they could transform the world.
Biden went on to say – “This was totally, thoroughly spontaneously on the part of the students, there was no adult inspiration for this. They insisted and that’s why guys like me who led in the gun issue did not show up to speak, we wanted to make sure everybody knew this was a spontaneous, thoroughly spontaneous effort on the part of young people. These millions of kids, they’re impacting on their parents’ sense of responsibility and you’re going to see it in the polls, you’re going to see it change, it’s already a movement, it’s real and I predict to you it’s not going to stop.”
Except it was not some spontaneous effort on behalf of young people…despite these teenagers providing a catalyst that catapulted the movement back into the headlines, the March for Our Lives event had only a very thin veneer of youth. The vast majority — a whopping 90% — of marchers were middle-aged.
According to a survey taken during the March itself by researchers associated with The Washington Post the same people simply keep showing up at each and every event. These researchers have tracked the so-called anti-Trump “Resistance” since its inception on election night 2016 and they note nearly three-quarters of the marchers — a whopping 72% — had a bachelor’s degree or higher level of graduate education, putting them well into the category of “leftist elite.”
As the Daily Wire states – “Most importantly though, less than 10% of marchers were under the age of 18, even though the march was clearly supposed to be for and about high school aged children. Of those adults attending the march who were over the age of 18, the average age was 49 years old — well within the realm of ‘Baby Boomer.’”
