Pay No Attention to the Nomenklatura Behind the Curtain

There was a big to-do in the media yesterday about all those marches against guns in cities across the nation. There’s nothing the MSM loves more than photogenic teenagers weeping because American citizens own guns.

Sultan Knish (Daniel Greenfield) asks an important question: “Who runs March for Our Lives?” Read the whole thing, but this is an important part of the answer:

March for Our Lives is funded by Hollywood celebs, it’s led by a Hollywood producer and its finances are routed through an obscure tax firm in the Valley. Its treasurer and secretary are Washington D.C. pros. And a top funder of gun control agendas is also one of its directors.

None of this has much to do with Parkland. The mass shooting by a mentally ill man who should have been committed and arrested long before he carried out his massacre was a political opportunity.

Now that opportunity is being exploited to the hilt by a professional class of political activists.

Gun control activists wring their hands over the NRA. They claim that a special interest lobby is illegitimately thwarting the “will of the people”. Yet it’s the anti-gun groups that are invariably false fronts. It’s very clear who runs the NRA. But the latest fake anti-NRA group is a nebulous shadow. Out front are the high school students and out back are the professional activists.

And who is really behind the whole thing? Hollywood celebs, Bloomberg, a network of organizations?

We know who supports the NRA. You can see NRA stickers on car windows even in the bluest cities in the country. But who really supports the anti-gun political network? You’ll need to spend hours sorting through paperwork, following the trail, comparing addresses and researching names, to even get a hint.

That’s what an illegitimate lobby thwarting the will of the people really looks like.

  1. The Globalists are in the hurry. They rushing the muslim invasion of Europe, they want unarm the US citizens, they want to start a nuclear war with Russia as soon as possible…
    Busy little gang… I guess the FED does not see a great future in the FIAT money system…

    • I agree. They see a window now. Russia is becoming too strong. The low price of petrol is not breaking Russia as they assumed. Remember the petrol prices above $4? Why did they go below $2.5? Greedy capitalists turned sweet?

      They are afraid to just attack Russia now that there are 300 million guns in private hands. They know that such a war has 0 support on the left and on the right. The only difference is that the left doesn’t know now, and when it will know, it will be too late. We can think whatever we want, as long as we don’t have guns to enforce our thoughts. Then government will enforce its thoughts, up to no good.

  2. This is really sad. We see youngsters like Hogg behaving like they are Hitler. I understand that one of his parents is an ex gov’t employee. How disgusting it is that he would put his CHILD in this imbroglio.
    There is no discussion to be had here because the gov’t has proven that they cannot solve this problem through their bureaucracy. The Parkland shooting was a massive fail of every level of gov’t, and that is the truth.
    From what I understand there was not one sign that said “FBI, do your job to save our children.” Nor was there a sign condemning the Broward Sheriff’s Dept. for their dereliction of duty. Will anyone lose their job over this? I think not. Even the deputy sheriff charged with securing the high school that was caught sleeping in his car the other day has been suspended WITH PAY!
    There is massive money behind the chaos that we are experiencing. Hollywood stars flying in to D.C. to promote this (with their armed entourage in tow.) Does anyone in the MSM see how absurd this is?
    I’m not sure how our society can go on like this.

    • Indeed, the blue state in which I reside cautions me greatly of putting any bumper sticker on my car or even placing a lawn sign on my property lest I get attacked.
      That is the reality.

      • Yes, indeed. We don’t put any signage on our car just in case we are forced to go to Charlottesville for something. It’s a deep blue spot, matching Northern Virginia. Here, it’s because so many federales move to C’ville after they retire. Their riches inflate the cost of living. Having the gov’t subsidized University of Virginia doesn’t help, either. Regular folk like teachers and nurses and firemen have to live further out since the real estate is so inflated.

    • David Hogg’s father is Kevin Hogg, a retired FBI agent. That would be the same FBI that refused to take any action when they were informed multiple times about Nikolas Cruz. Their inaction was partly responsible for the Parkland shooting.

      My personal opinion is that FBI management “politely” informed the retired father that his son would take on the role of outspoken gun control activist to redirect and minimize any negative fallout on the FBI.

  3. Something very odd about the anti-gun lobby. People have been killed for centuries by knives, but no one would even think of having them banned. Multiple people have also been killed by trucks and vans driven by evil people with an agenda. But no thought of banning that “weapon”. Why the emotions stirred up by guns?
    I do however think the laws need refining. Assault style rifles with large magazines do have potential to do a lot of damage very quickly. It would seem sensible to limit access to this type of rifle. The fact a Florida 16 year old, who couldn’t legally drink alcohol due to age, can buy an AR15, (and had been reported to the FBI), seems unwise. That’s what other countries have done to address the “in the wrong hands” issue. Switzerland has very high ownership levels of guns, many of them military assault rifles, but only one massacre crime in recent years. The same situation in New Zealand. High level of gun ownership, where people are registered, not the firearm. Also Police approved secure storage is required. Military style semi autos can be owned by approved and vetted people. There has never been a mass killing in a New Zealand school. Australia banned this type of rifle and but still has gun crime no different to New Zealand. As always, criminals will get their hands on guns regardless of laws.

    • People have been killed for centuries by knives, but no one would even think of having them banned.

      I thought they were banned in the UK? Perhaps a Brit could tell us what the current law is.

      Meanwhile, in American schools, even plastic butter knives are illegal.

    • I’m not going to get into a long drawn out “gun control” discussion here but I want to make a few points.

      1 – Semiauto firearms using “large capacity” magazines are no more lethal than semiauto firearms using “low capacity” magazines. Anyone familiar with an AR-15 can change magazines in under 2 seconds. That’s statistically insignificant.

      2 – Semiauto firearms have been around for over 100 years. They are not a new invention and they are not any more lethal now than then.

      3 – “Military style” and “assault style” are useless political constructs that mean exactly nothing except to put fear into uninformed lemmings. ALL semiauto firearms (rifles, shotguns, handguns) operate on the same basic action.

      4 – The US is not Switzerland, New Zealand, Australia or any other country one cares to mention. Their laws and experiences do not form the basis for our laws.

      5 – It’s misleading to compare one country’s “gun violence” against another country’s “gun violence.” If you want to compare something then compare countries overall violent crime statistics (all violent crime).

  4. “I do however think the laws need refining. Assault style rifles with large magazines do have potential to do a lot of damage very quickly. It would seem sensible to limit access to this type of rifle.”

    Banning a type of gun because of cosmetic/ergonomic features is silly. Especially in the age of 3D printing. Ban putting adjustable stocks and rear/forward hand grips on a gun? I’ll just print one. Flash hiders or muzzle breaks a no go? I’ve got a drill, file, etc.

    “The fact a Florida 16 year old, who couldn’t legally drink alcohol due to age, can buy an AR15, (and had been reported to the FBI), seems unwise.”

    19 if I recall correctly. Who would be issued automatic weapons and body armor if he became a soldier or police officer. I wouldn’t try to point out thatmilitary/police have a solid vetting process. Unless you’re going into a line of work that deals with very sensitive information the “vetting process” is a joke. He wouldn’t have been able to buy a gun if any government agency had done its job and charged him with a crime. 39 interactions with police and not one charge. Not one charge when they had several they could have used and made them stick.

    I’ll never be for any sort of registration of arms or people who keep arms. Its just a a shopping list for the Gestapo, NKVD, etc when the wrong people come to power.

  5. An intricate network in which you can only identify an inexhaustible source for all this activism: Marxism! I thought that Marxism in my continent was more compelling, but it seems that it is taking shape faster in the United States and throughout Europe. By the way, I think he never left, to begin with.

  6. American CBSNews Special clip Sneak Peek: 39 Days
    David Hogg:

    “On the day of the shooting, I got my camera and got on my bike and rode as fast as I could, three miles from my house to the school to get as much video and get as many interviews as I could.”

    Clearly, David Hogg, just undermined his “survivor” status in this interview.
