The Federalist asks “Why Did It Take Two Weeks To Discover Parkland Students’ Astroturfing?” Author David Hines lays out the case that there was a well oiled machine behind this, and I don’t doubt it. However, I don’t think that was why it took two weeks for folks to figure this out, although it doubtless had something to do with it.
I think one of the biggest reasons, at least for the folks on our side, is that we’re good people. We don’t dance in the blood when a mass shooting occurs. The other side, our enemy, has absolutely no problem with doing that and a lot more besides. Like taking advantage of kids in the aftermath of a tragedy. Especially when those kids have already been primed to be taken advantage of by an educational system ran by the same leftists that want to take away our guns.
Feel free to say I’m a conspiracy theorist nut. But wait until the next spree killer shows up a a gun-free school zone and see how fast this happens again, and just how many well known leftists are involved.
I’ll be happy to be proven wrong–if you can.
