The American media’s heavily promoted march of the #MarchForOurLives event organized by backers of Louis Farrakhan provided a glimpse into the truth about the children — the CNN Five — who were directed to center stage, pretending to speak for all the victims of the Parkland murders.
Hey @Emma4Change please stop using my sister’s name to push your agenda, she DID NOT and WOULD NOT support it

What was once raw emotion as a result of their horrific experience is now stage-craft for voter turn out in November. But, as carefully crafted and focus grouped as was this event, the kids went off their talking points when things got, you know, “real.”
Fact: Police let the murderer have guns he shouldn’t have
These children started of the media event by calling anyone who belongs to the NRA, or who do not want it expunged, accessories to murder. They call it a distraction when people focus on the fact that law enforcement purposefully, as a matter of policy, ignored a series of crimes committed by the Parkland murderer. He threatened people with guns to their heads. He assaulted others. He made criminal threats. Any of these should have landed him in jail and barred him from buying guns.
None of that mattered to the CNN Five. The child stars of the #MarchForOurLives media event will accept only one solution. They want to ban rifles used in about 1 percent of murders.
#MarchOurLives child stars: Give my opaque backpacks or give me . . .
On CNN, Time, NPR and every other media outlet promoting the march, they lecture that adults need to get out of the way. They are going to do what it takes to #NeverAgain see a murder at a school . . . unless, of course, kids have to wear transparent backpacks. That, they huff, is a line too far.
Tyra Hemans, 19, a senior, told CNN that she opposes the idea of clear backpacks:
I’m not happy with it. Why are you punishing me for one person’s actions?
The Boy King, who calls Marco Rubio a hired killer, said with a straight face that asking kids to wear transparent backpacks is against the First Amendment. If you are keeping score, a backpack is clearly sacrosanct under the Bill of Rights. Firearms, though . . . well, c’mon, the founders were too busy protecting Che Guevara backpacks to worry about something like self defense or an armed populace to help keep tyranny at bay. By their own “logic” their refusal to wear an uncool backpack, even if it could save lives, makes them what they call others: give me an opaque backpack or give me death.
Child stars ignored a hero cop
These child stars ignored a hero cop because there was no script for that. Only focus group tested, leftist kids count as survivors working for change.
At the expensive media event in Washington D.C., none of the CNN Five thanked the heroic cop in Maryland who stopped a shooting at a school before it got much worse. They dismiss a fellow classmate — and survivor — Kyle Kasurav, because he disagrees with their approach. Nevermind that Kasurav has helped get legislation passed or that he has an app to help prevent shootings. The child stars of the #MarchForOurLives media event say only banning the weapon used in the smallest percentage of murders will suffice; anyone who disagrees, they dismiss as murderers or accessories to murder. A brave new world of rule by teenage mood.
Of course, these children — as focus grouped and stage-managed as they have become — are kids and would normally be forgiven such inconsistencies. But nothing here is normal. These people — as Jay Inslee explained and another other Democrat presidential candidates have explained — are our leaders. Bravely we march into the future where the Bill of Rights ends where the children’s feelings begin.
