The People Behind The ‘Student Anti-Gun Movement’ Have Been Ousted, It’s bad.
Anyone who has watched the news or has been on social media over the past few weeks has seen them. Students who seem perfectly choreographed giving well-scripted speeches, acting beyond the ‘average’ teenager’s mannerisms. We have been lucky enough to have reported about the few students who called out mainstream media for trying to script their questions but apparently, it goes bigger than CNN pushing agendas.
The latest propaganda project is dubbed “March for Our Lives.” And while it’s having some logistical problems (this Washington Post report is almost funny), it’s generally being played by the media as a “spontaneous” outburst of student-led activism to promote gun safety through demonstrations planned across the country.

Everytown for Gun Safety, for instance, is the Michael Bloomberg-funded group…
