2nd Amendment News

Corporations, Professional Agitators Behind DC Gun Control Rally

The media will portray this weekend’s so-called “March for Our Lives” as an earnest, spontaneous gathering of young people who are taking a stand against violence in the wake of the Stoneman Douglas High School shooting. However, this protest is actually a well-organized, well-funded initiative by radical leftists intent on advancing a gun control agenda that undermines the 2nd Amendment and demonizes guns and gun owners.

Not surprisingly, Michael Bloomberg’s “Everytown for Gun Safety” is the main conduit for funding and organization. The event’s website directly solicits donations to the March for Our Lives – Everytown Support Fund, which is apparently a 501(c)3 non-profit, as well as the March for Our Lives Action Fund, a 501(c)4 “dark money” organization. Everytown.org emails are listed as the contact for assistance with “sibling marches” and financial support is available in the form of $5,000 from Everytown.

Everytown is also a sibling organization of professional activist Shannon Watts’s “Moms Demand Action.”

While Bloomberg and Everytown may be funding the event, the dollars raised in support may be flowing elsewhere. The president of the 501(c)4 organization is the co-executive director of the Women’s March Los Angeles Foundation, Deena Katz.

In fact, FrontPageMag.com’s Daniel Greenfield finds hardly any individuals or organizations involved with the March are tied to Florida at all:

Florida is notably absent from the roll call. Instead the organization, one of a number of seeming incarnations of the March for Our Lives brand, draws on established activist talent from the usual places, Chicago, Los Angeles and Washington D.C. There’s nothing particularly local about it.

March for Our Lives is funded by Hollywood celebs, it’s led by a Hollywood producer and its finances are routed through an obscure tax firm in the Valley. Its treasurer and secretary are Washington D.C. pros. And a top funder of gun control agendas is also one of its directors.

Greenfield describes “nebulous shadow” obscured by high school students used as props as the driving force behind the March for Our Lives and, with this well-oiled political machine clearly visible beneath the surface, the corporate supporters of the March cannot be given a pass. Companies like Aetna, which has pledged $200,000 in support, Gucci, $500,000, and dating app Bumble, $100,000, are complicit in not only advancing the March’s anti-2nd Amendment agenda, but the entire progressive movement as well.

In addition to the corporate donations, Lyft is offering protestors free rides and American Eagle has contributed to recruitment efforts via emails to its customers.

Perhaps the ultimate hypocrisy by these corporations is their absence from another march earlier this year in Washington. On January 19th, over 100,000, mostly young people, joined the March for Life, an annual event that works to end the 900,000 deaths caused by the abortion industry every year. Not one of these virtue signaling companies was present, and Lyft provided no free rides.

    Saul Alinsky radicals never letter a crisis go to waste… They took a tragedy in Florida school that was mainly caused by the failure of the School District not allowing the police to do their job in the first place just so the school district looked good not having so many of their little snow flakes arrested for doing bad things, they ignored a sick psycho kid and his family after many, many, many police calls to their home, the FBI and the police ignored multiple WARNINGS on this psycho kid, and then after something happens you have Mr. Hogg (student-agitator) and his co-horts being adopted by the professional agitators and the Bloombergs, and Code Pink and Michael Moore and MOve-0r.org and the Soros factor picking up the crisis and organizing the march’s so they have one thing in common destroy our Constitution, destroy our Bill of Rights, take away our free speech, take away our 2nd Amendment to defend ourselves against a tyranical government. Well if they do this they will have won and we might as well lay down in the streets and let the tanks roll over us. How stupid the American people can be at times beings used as “useful idiots” and playing right into the progressive lefts hands. This is right out of Rules for Radicals.. Wake up America before it’s too late, if not too late already.

      It boggles the mind how people are such willful sheep. Try to educate yourselves and get informed people!

    Delta joined in, again, helping give free seats to March for Our Lives. So when flying, boycott both Delta and Southwest!

    Corporations and Professional Agitators ARE behind this chaos, but also the MEDIA is involved perhaps as much if not more. We must not give in to this well organized plot that chips away at our Constitution. You may be sure that this is but the beginning – they will keep on chipping away ’til they destroy our Christian based government; best the world has ever known. And why do we allow them to use school children to accomplish their satanic end? Why have we allowed the National Education Association (NEA) to replace the three Rs (RRR) with out and out rank teaching of Marxism? I believe the media joyfully informed the public that it was college students whose vote put Obama in office, twice – a rare time when the media ever told the truth, and Obama clearly admits he is a socialist; a double first cousin to Marxism. It is my unalterable belief that if America doesn’t get back to the God of our founders, we will lose what’s left of our way of life, and descend into the hell of a third world country! Go ahead call me a prognosticator of gloom but our children will see, if not us! I believe God is fed up with Hollywood filth, crooked politicians, and Citizens who are just too busy keeping up with the Joneses to care about what’s really going on. Give ’em another Bud, and another ball game. . .

      I like to define the term “Marxism/progressivism” as the belief that the world and all its history is the story of oppressed classes oppressed by oppressor classes, and that justice to the Marxist/progressive is the oppressed classes overcoming the oppressor classes to become the *new* oppressors (not equality). Thus, Marxism is an umbrella term for communism (proletariat vs. bourgeoisie), feminism (female vs. male), brown power (blacks/Latinos vs. whites and sometimes Asians), the gay agenda (homosexuals vs. traditionalists), and militant atheists (scientism vs. Christianity). Also, fundamentalist Islam is sometimes tacked on as an additional oppressed group (vs. Christianity/traditionalism).

        TheKnowerseeker Karl Marx who wrote he Communist Manifesto saw poor people have little, and thought rich people who have much should provide for them. The fact that the poor were generally unproductive made no difference to him. He, himself, never had a job tat anyone knows about, and it is an unfathomable fact that he was supported by the very industralists he was trying to destroy! Karl Marx also was an atheist, and some think he was queer. He never gave a crap about the poor, he was just trying to justify the unjustifyable!
