KANSAS CITY STUDENT WALKOUT PROTEST WEDNESDAY: WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT THE NEXTGEN AGAINST GUN RIGHTS?!?!
Today Kansas City students join a nationwide protest movement urging comprehensive reform of American gun laws amid the aftermath of a school shooting that left 17 people dead.
Accordingly . . .
SHOULD KANSAS CITY SUPPORT THIS YOUNGSTER ACTIVIST MOVEMENT TO STOP THE VIOLENCE???
Or . . .
IS THIS JUST MARKETING HYPE AMONG A FEW STUDENTS PROPPED UP BY THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY ELITE WHEREIN ANY CRITICISM AGAINST EFFORTS TO STRIP AWAY CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS IS DEEMED A HATE CRIME?!?!
TKC perspective . . .
Defending the 2nd Amendment is tricky in this instance but still vital to our Democracy.
Here's the wrong way to do it:
'Skinhead lesbian': GOP candidate attacks Parkland teen Emma Gonzalez
A much more sophisticated perspective for our smarter readers:
"We shouldn’t be treating innocence as a political asset used to push the agenda of more sophisticated players."
Sadly, youngsters entering the political fray are very much akin to lambs being led to the slaughter. Thankfully, only a metaphorical one.
Advocacy and activism have become an increasingly cynical business during this exceptionally divisive era in American politics. Nevertheless, with time, bright-eyed students will eventually learn that all grassroots movements eventually become cannon fodder expended in the service of election season schemes to protect the status quo and the illusion of Democracy amid partisan slap-fighting distractions.
