Behind every pro-gun control, “grassroots” movement in the wake of a mass public shooting is a far-left organizer and millions in shady money.
Shannon Watts founded Moms Demand Action following the tragic Sandy Hook massacre in 2013. She claims to have heard the news during a yoga class, after which she rushed home, not because she knew someone at the school, but to start a Facebook page. And with that, “Moms Demand Action” was created, with the Facebook page’s first post reading “We need to organize a One Million Mom March in 2013. Join us — we will need strength in numbers against a resourceful, powerful and intransigent gun lobby.” Does that sound like someone who just left a yoga class distraught?
Within three days the group had chapters in multiple States – all while the “Moms Demand Action” Facebook page had consisted of a single post. Major news organizations began reporting on Watt’s groups when the organization’s Facebook page hadn’t even yet made two dozen pages. And why? Because the media wanted to portray the narrative of “moms rising up” against the gun lobby, all while “Moms Demand Action” was a manufactured group, and Mrs. Watts has a history in PR.
The same is the case of the anti-gun Stoneman Douglass school shooting survivors. The media has been happy to parade around this group of kids who “appeared out of nowhere” – when the organized Left has been pulling the strings the entire time.
Debbie Wasserman Schultz had met with some of the left-wing survivors, and coached them, from day two.
And now, according to the Washington Free Beacon, March For Our Lives, a demonstration involving survivors of the Stoneman Douglass school shooting that will take place Saturday in Washington, D.C., and across the country, registered a 501(c)(4) nonprofit advocacy organization that is not required to disclose its donors.
While the organization said on its website it is “for kids and by kids” and the “March For Our Lives organizers are the kids themselves,” it also said the kids “have brought in support to help ensure it is a success.”
A coalition of liberal advocacy groups is currently involved in organizing and planning the march. In addition, the march has received support from leading gun-control groups like Everytown for Gun Safety, the Brady Campaign, and Giffords. Organizers from the Women’s March, Planned Parenthood, and Move On are involved with the permitting for the event, as well as promoting it.
March For Our Lives is even directing donations to Everytown, which has set up a March For Our Lives Initiative under their own 501(c)(3) operation. Donations to that fund will be tax deductible, and its donors will have to be publicly disclosed.
While donations are anonymous, a number of celebrities have made some very public donations, including Oprah Winfrey, George Clooney, Steven Spielberg, and Jeffrey Katzenberg. Them, along with fashion company Gucci, have donated $2.5 million to the March.
The group is fine with those donors being public about it. I wonder who they want to keep hidden.
The media doesn’t want you to know that this gun control march is being funded by some wealthy anti-gun, and far-left organizations, but Americans deserve the truth.
