Stacy McCain reminds us that, the last post notwithstanding, school shootings are actually very rare and have been declining since the 1990s. So what is the point of all of this media coverage? Why, “Vote Democrat,” of course:
Donald Trump is president, Democrats are angry, we are a few months away from a midterm election, and the Democrat-controlled liberal media organized a propaganda campaign to demonize Republicans, by blaming them as responsible for the deaths of students in Parkland. A coalition of Democrat-aligned organizations, including Planned Parenthood, spent millions of dollars to fund Saturday’s protest rallies.
Like the “Occupy Wall Street” protests of 2011 and the “Black Lives Matter” movement of 2014-2016, the post-Parkland gun-control crusade is a “battlespace preparation” campaign by Democrats and their liberal media allies, who seek to establish a narrative that makes Republicans the scapegoats for a social problem.
Whatever the turnout of the next election, gun control will likely be a non-starter if it actually goes before Congress. Democrats will probably remember the massive spanking given to them by voters during the Clinton years. Which, if you think about it, is really a far worse statement than if they thought that they could actually make a difference.
