This incident is far worse than just the astro-turfing. This event was enabled and the after math was planned ahead of time. Want proof? ... Why were Cruz’s clothes removed and DISPOSED OF prior to his arrive for booking? No, not removed and put in evidence nags, disposed of. There would be NO COURT discovery, no trial, no digging.

I doubt I am alone anymore when I think that I am sick and tired of playing games with these planned shooting events to bring about gun control and confiscation.

Every time there is a ton of proof of lies, crisis actors and all types of manipulation and malfeasance.

Yet here we are. Once again, we all have to pretend whatever the liars that plan this stuff and their corrupt media tell us is acceptable cause “the Kids”.

I don’t accept their lies anymore and this crap is not going to stop until good people become unafraid of the criminal left and their corrupt media.

I am sure they have already planned the next shooting. Probably reeeeaaalll soon. Once they get all the props in place and the crisis actors on the bus then off they go.

Slaughter some more “bumps in the road” to die for the agenda and drag out the clowns like that little p_ick Hogg and that scrawny bald lesbo. Sorry, done with the darn niceties.

4Chan pick up the white courtesy phone, and produce massive amounts of dank memes of Florida kids getting rooked by pro activists.

I always thought kids had a disdain for being manipulated.

This whole thing is as real as Spanky & Darla on “Our Gang” with “Come on, kids. Let’s put on a show in the old barn.”

United states press is no longer a news source all it is in Putin’s propaganda arm in our country.

shortly after the shootings, i posted this on FR several times, hoping it would spark further investigation...

18 Feb: NaplesDailyNews: #NeverAgain: ‘This generation ... The next generation will never have to worry about this.’
by Patrick Riley
The students will pack into buses Tuesday and make the nearly 450-mile trek from Parkland to Tallahassee, where they will split up into groups of 10 to talk to 10 state senators and representatives from both parties Wednesday. The journey comes less than a week after a gunman killed 17 people at the school.
“The action has been so quick,” said Corin, 17. “And that’s necessary because this is a fresh and open wound and we can’t let it close up. We need to do something about it before it just disappears like it always has.”...

Corin, who was hiding in a classroom during the shooting, said a family friend connected her with U.S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, whose aide helped her start organizing the trip.
A handful of other Democratic politicians, including state Sens. Lauren Book and Kevin Rader and state Reps. Carlos Guillermo Smith and Jared Moskowitz, also helped, she said...

They did not abjectly fail on this, they did it on purpose.

No one should look at what the media does today as if it was a well-meaning mistake.

They are Marxists/Progressives and all of their actions are by design and according to their agenda.

Unfortunately, most of us are too busy working for our families, paying taxes, and trying to move this nation to the next level (if that is possible given our circumstances).

I see your point, but responsibility never was a trait of the left.

They have the protests planned, the talking points written, and even the Assault Weapons Bill of 2018 carefully prepared and ready to launch as soon as the school shooting happens.

It would be interesting to investigate the history of their actions, and see how many plans, documents, proposed legislation, etc. the leftists have sitting on the shelf waiting for the tragedy they are hoping for to happen.

Well, I am older than you are. Even though it would be a hassle, I would still do it if I thought there would be honest coverage.

And, although I must admit that I thoroughly enjoyed hanging out with FReepers and chanting, “Get out of Cheney’s house!” at Al Gore, having the “news” media ignore or twist our activity negates the worth of making the 3-hour trip to DC. Not to mention the increased possibility of getting my old head bashed in by AntiFaggots.

(Remembering those times, reminds me of how taken in we were by the globalist Bush. &%*#!)

Why Did It Take Two Weeks To Discover Parkland Students’ Astroturfing?...because so much of the public, including much of the national press and political establishment, are so unsophisticated - or maybe ignorant is a better word - about what's up in today's culture - also shocking is the fact that so many big companies priding themselves on being so up-to-date and modern - like United Airlines and Hertz - aren't smart enough to know that the tsunami of protests they got on their linkage with the NRA came from a bunch of bots - probably ten malcontents with a computer email list blasting out phony outrage that made the companies lose their sanity - and ultimately probably a lot of customers.....

Why? Because so many sheeple accept fake news and propaganda without questions as does the main stream media.

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

I still associate it with the Astrodome.
