Skip to comments.Sociologist: Less Than 10 Percent Of March For Our Lives Participants Were Children
Posted on 03/27/2018 6:45:59 AM PDT by Enlightened1
A sociologist on MSNBC threw cold water on all the medias claims that the March For Our Lives protests were spontaneous and led by the nations children during a Morning Joe segment on Monday.
University of Maryland sociologist Dana Fisher conducted a study of the demographics of Saturdays march in Washington, D.C., and discovered that only less than 10 percent of those in the crowd were under the age of 18.
While Fisher tried to make it sound like these individuals were all potential voters, it is likely that many of those who showed up were simply run-of-the-mill liberal activists.
The study was done by going through the crowds with tablets and conducting surveys of participants and then extrapolating trends from the data collected, according to Fisher.

This was NOT grassroots at all...
It was organized, planned and funded by Leftist Soros groups.
Tablet clipboards dont just appear spontaneously.
Even Stevie Wonder could see that the crowd was 90% adults! The DNC-ABC-CBS-NBC-CNN talking point that this was a “children’s” led movement was totally bogus! This was a DNC gun grab gathering!
100% were morons though.
Of COURSE ... just like DACA (and all the rest of the “children’s” programs).
Just another mob hired by Soros and the DNC to subjugate American gun owners by taking their weapons.
As the Texans said at Gonzales during their war for independence, “Come and take it.”
That’s why they were able to have AstroTurf demonstrations in cities around the world, all coordinated. It’s the pussyhats and Soros crews.
For instance, why would schoolkids in Tokyo give a crap about this issue? It’s just purely opportunistic.
Rush nailed it.
This is astroturf... this whole thing is... obvious to anyone with a few neurons that work
Anybody that thinks this protest movement was “by the children” is either brain-dead or a leftist agitator.
Last Saturday, they had a March For Our Lives event at the Minnesota State Capitol.
I was watching it on the 10PM news. I looked at my wife and said “Hmmm, I’m not seeing very many kids there at all”.
Anybody who actually thinks this parade was put on by the “survivor” children from Parkland really should take a small vacation from all those “recreational” drugs. Soros and the communist party had more to do with staging this show than any Parkland “survivors”. This whole Parkland fiasco is a joke. It’s just sad that seventeen people had to be sacrificed for “the cause”.
Agree. The protest should be about the failures to address the PC politics that lead to this tragedy and why federal buildings are protected but not schools
Maybe two weeks ago, there was a National Remember the 17 (or something like that) on a Wednesday morning. Our schools here were on Spring Break. But there were around 75 people standing by the front of the high school with signs. There were MAYBE 10 kids, the rest were adults. That would be consistent with this article. I am truly fed up with the Leftist control of Media. Always telling us what we should think and how we should act..........
Even more disturbing was the circular reasoning by the Parkland kids involved in the march that it was okay to bully and ostracize Cruz as a freak since Middle School since he turned out to be a murderer later. Sorry, but cruelty is still cruelty, no matter what the other person ends up doing later.
They were 10% children and 90% childish leftists of adult age.
I thought it took a long time to get a protest permit in DC. These “kids’ obtained a permit within a month?!! Either this protest was planned six months ago or someone switched events for these “kids”.
Kind of like those “child” refugees.
