Debbie Wassermann Schultz aiding in the lobbying in Tallahassee, a teacher’s union organizing the buses that got the kids there, Michael Bloomberg’s groups and the Women’s March working on the upcoming March For Our Lives, MoveOn.org doing social media promotion and (potentially) march logistics, and training for student activists provided by federally funded Planned Parenthood.

(IMO)The $money quote$ was ~ until the press covers organizing campaigns accurately, organizers will be able to punch above their weight politically even if they don’t win every election. ~ ty 4 posting

Freepers used to be able to organize on the site. We don’t do physical protests anymore and that’s a bummer.

Yup.

Broward Sheriffs Department was aware that Cruz was about to go postal.....and they let him.

And then they stood back and watched him do it!

Sheesh.

The journalists *are* part of the power structure.

Many conservative outlets were saying how the children were being used by the left.

I did so myself.

Expecting the left to out the left is idiotic.

A week ago Congress asked Tide Detergent to change their pod design so teenagers would stop eating them.

This week the media thinks teenagers should determine gun control laws.

So “astroturfing” now means something other than Bill Clinton’s pickup truck bed?

Does anyone remember the good old days when the media used to protect the identity of minor victims of crimes?

Now everyone is organizing marches for these minor victims?

Children are the perfect face for gun control.

Children are children and they want what they want and they don't care about reason or logic. That sums up the gun control lobby from its inception and using actual children to promote it makes sense. No on wants to argue with children.

Conservatives cuss and discuss the sheer will of the Left to pay the cost, whatever it takes, to show up, do the hard work and expend the shoe leather to get their job done.

Conservatives will not imitate it.

I think it is because we are a lot older now. think 20 years ago how willing you were to organize and how willing you are today I am in my 50s now and unless its right in my back yard I am not going to a protest

The liberal gun-grabbers never give up.

Adolph would have loved them.
