I wish I could just quote every word in this article because it's worth the read in its entirety. And I hope my fellow ATSers will take the time -- and the inclination -- to read it and understand it. If I had to summarize the greater message it's simply this: Attacking David Hogg is exactly what the masterminds behind Hogg want us to do... So every time someone attacks this kid, they are furthering THEIR agenda. And at some point, I have to wonder how many people are doing so knowingly and deliberately. The controlled "opposition"...

Don't Talk About the Parkland Students, Talk About Who's Behind Them

We know that March for Our Lives is run by adults. The average age of adult March attendees is 49. The Parkland teens are there as political human shields. They want you to attack them.

Why??? Because it distracts and divides and serves absolutely NO PRACTICAL PURPOSE!!! Picking on a freaking kid is easy... too easy. It's also mean, petty and immature. And it makes the one picking on the kid -- even if he is a snot-nosed punk -- look much MUCH worse than the snot-nosed punk. We expect that kind of crap from teenagers. But not from adults. And if your ego and pride is such that you can't handle the nonsense of a kid, then you sure as hell aren't up to the challenge of handling the nonsense of adults. And that's what they're counting on. Because it's all they've got. And the alternative is devastating to their agenda.

What they don't want to do is...
1. Have a conversation about the adults behind the curtain
2. Talk about the armed guards that the adult celebrities funding this media circus have
3. Discuss where all the money is coming from and where it's going to
4. Polls showing that young people are actually less on board with gun bans than older voters

Everyone knows that these kids didn't do all this alone. Obviously. Everyone knows that the media and political critters have been using and abusing and exploiting these kids for their agenda. Everyone knows that teenagers simply do not have the mental faculties necessary to form thoughtful and reasoned opinions and conclusions. Everyone knows this is ALL POLITICAL SMOKE AND MIRRORS!!! (Though whether they will admit it is an entirely different animal!) Don't fight harder... fight smarter.

Don't fight the battles that the left wants you to.

Don't fight them on their terrain using the tactics that they want you to use. When you attack the human shields, you validate the left's larger narrative that
1. There is an independent student movement
2. That this movement of survivors and victims is under fire for standing up to the "gun lobby".

We don't have to play their game. We don't have to lower ourselves to their level. There's plenty of ammo to fight the "approved" message of these media darlings -- NOT the darlings themselves -- starting right here with the propaganda that these kids speak for ALL kids:
Marjory Stoneman Douglas Teacher Says Many Students Feel They Are Misrepresented By Famous Classmates
Black Stoneman Douglas Shooting Survivors: Minority Voices Not Valued As Much As White Students

And here:

Majority 18-34 Oppose Rifle Ban, 65+ Support

Bottom line?

When you attack human shields. The people behind them win.

And if we cannot and will not do better, then we don't deserve better.

I know Hogg is a petulant child, but who is the mastermind behind the gun control, weapons ban?

If the conservatives and FOX News would have never went after this kid, his name wouldn't even be known.

Your hate has made him a household name and a kind of martyr.

Kinda funny isn't it?

Yep, and conversely, his crusade against gun rights has caused NRA membership and donations to triple since the Parkland tragedy......

It's not just the right who are wondering about the motivations of the people financing this, if this article is correct in its facts From the Mockingbird

Likely the same folks who were behind Sandy Hook and so many other false flag operations.

Exactly. Why aren't these people talking about the people using this for political Gain. Hogg and his fellow students are just that students venting and pushing after suffering a tragedy. They're angry and want change. You attack him with petty, childish attacks, instead of going after those that are using it for political gain.

Attacking a high school student is easy...and very, very imature.

That's exactly the question we need to be asking and focusing on. Here's a start:

The Parkland Teens Fighting For Gun Control Have The Backing Of These Huge Organizing Groups

...major players and organizations — including Everytown, Giffords, Move On, and Women’s March LA — told BuzzFeed News they are helping 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.


There is also Delta Airlines and the NFL Patriots providing flights for the protesters, and other corporate assistance. There are many grubby fingers in this pie.

Of course it would have been known -- THAT was the point!!! Granted the attention given to him has helped propped him up, but it's not like "his name wouldn't even be known."


Your hate has made him a household name and a kind of martyr.


My hate? LOL!!! No. I don't hate silly teenagers. This is the type of thing I expect from the average teen. It's not their fault they have more bravado than brains. One of the wisest things I was ever told as a parent was not to judge the man by the boy. It was true with my son and it's just as true of this kid. Hate? No. Pity? A little.

To be fair, theres a ton of money and power behind the NRA too... when push comes to shove etc etc

To be fair, there is not much of a case in the way of facts and evidence that prove Cruz was the shooter. Hogg looks like he is reciting a script of some sort.

Not that I'd be surprised by false flag attacks, but if there was evidence I think the NRA supporting parents would demand a deeper investigation.

Most people who give speeches are reading from a script.

Thank you for adding the link here -- excellent article. But quite sad as well:

This is the hidden hand behind the Parkland Protest Puppets, and apparently Jose Gonzalez is perfectly happy to profit off his daughters trauma and desire to not be shot at school. The safety of children is not a priority for the people behind this movement however. Power and Control are and they are cynically using a tragedy and the fire of youth to advance towards these priorities.

Not to give anyone too much credit, but I can't help but wonder if the father isn't the subject of manipulation, exploitation and even extortion as well. I suspect that many would-be good people find themselves being blackmailed or otherwise coerced into playing the game.

Well said!!!

I don't know. But I do know that it makes no sense -- and serves no practical purpose -- to ignore the money/clout behind the kids. It doesn't make any sense to pick on kids either.

But it sure makes sense if you consider how many of these people know exactly what they're doing...

True. Money makes the world go around.

I would say the difference is that the NRA isn't hiding behind kids who have been traumatized.

You're right. And Nikolas Cruz was accused almost immediately, although I have yet to find one eyewitness account of him shooting anyone. There is one account from the freshman kid who encountered the shooter in the stairwell, but he stated that he didn't know who the shooter was. So that doesn't implicate Cruz specifically. And there is the student who reported walking and talking with Cruz as she evacuated the building (and while hearing gunshots elsewhere), but she did not witness Cruz shooting. Other eyewitness accounts claim the shooter was wearing a mask, so they could not identify Cruz as the shooter either.


Hogg looks like he is reciting a script of some sort.


I've had that thought also... while other times he seems to go completely off script. It's almost as if there are two David Hoggs. But it's probably more like one reciting talking points and one just talking trash.

And they have. We just don't hear about it from the media and critters pushing their agenda while hiding behind these kids... They don't want us to hear about it or even know about it. That would destroy their narrative that their opinion is the only opinion.

How do you know that? The same way you "know" that Trump is amazing and liberals are terrible?

They said they organized themselves because adults wouldn't do it, how do you know they didn't do it?
