Baltimores new Mayor Catherine Pugh is sending public school students to the March for Our Lives event in Washington, DC. The event has been organized for the students of Parkland who have been repeatedly exploited by the left to push gun control. Pugh is charging the taxpayers of Baltimore for the trip.
Philip Wegmann reports at the Washington Examiner:
Baltimore mayor promises taxpayer money to high school students playing hooky and protesting gun violence
To succeed in life, stay in school unless youre cutting class for the sake of progressive politics.
Thats the message Baltimore Mayor Catherine Pugh delivered to hundreds of high school students playing hooky outside City Hall in protest of gun violence. Shouting through the SWAT teams microphone, Pugh cheered their little act of delinquency before offering taxpayer cash for the adolescent activists to march on the national capital. Flanked by Police Commissioner Darryl De Sousa, the mayor shouted, Lets show Washington D.C. that Baltimore matters.
Pugh promised free T-shirts and free lunches if the students will board 60 city buses later this month to protest gun violence. The grade school protestors, in exchange, will provide advocacy and a convenient photo-op for an ambitious politician.
But since when have cities become political action committees and their municipal budgets seed money for political organizing? The stunt is irresponsible and borderline abusive.

“Baltimores new Mayor Catherine Pugh is sending public school students to the March for Our Lives event in Washington, DC.”
Everything that women run is FUBAR.
I hope we get a week of heavy snow making these punks stay in school past memorial day.
Are they going to riot and try and burn down DC like they did their hometown?! Priceless. Lets see how many get arrested for rioting, vandalism, and violence.
$1.3 billion spent on Baltimore schools and what do you get? 70% graduation rates even BEFORE exposure of wide-spread grade rigging, schools with zero proficiency in math and english, a huge leftist bureaucracy, and social-justice education
yes, it all fits.
This woman was on with Laura Ingraham last night. I nearly threw something at the tv. She was possibly the stupidest person I’ve every heard. She wouldn’t shut up, saying the same talking points over and over. Laura couldn’t get a word in....and believe me, she tried.
How does someone so STUPID get to be mayor????
Please excuse Sally Citzy from her absence from school on Thursday, April 7th. Sally will be aytending a constitutional rights march in Wahington, D.C. in support of the second amendment.
dirtbags, stealing other people’s money..
Because the Baltimore Mayor has had such success disarming criminals in Baltimore......right?
We could easily fix our trade imbalance if we were allowed to export our stupid.
“How does someone so STUPID get to be mayor????”
Consider the electorate in Baltimore.
Well, sadly, we don’t need any up here. We’re saturated with stupid, but good luck with that.
The Mayor views using kids as development of useful life skills. In reality the Mayor oppresses the weak and views the kids as pawns in a game. They are creating a city plunging to disaster.
“Not one student in five Baltimore high schools and one middle school tested proficient in state testing in the subjects of math and English a finding that was discovered during a Project Baltimore investigation.
Their scores place them in one of five categories a four or five is considered proficient and one through three are not, Townhall reported. At Frederick Douglass [High School], 185 students took the state math test last year and 89 percent fell into the lowest level. Just one student approached expectations and scored a three.”
You spelled her name wrong—it’s Catherine P.U. She stinks.
With Stupid education and stupid voters, she’s a shoo-in!
She seems to have the Maxine Waters DNA in looks and IQ!
I had thoughts, she might be related?
