About Yesterday…

I’ve been reading crowd size reports, trying to assess if the Republicans will be able to write off yesterday’s protests as a focus group (as they did the pre-invasion of Iraq protests). As near as I can tell, the #MarchForOurLives gun protest march in, D.C. attracted 800,000 people, which is far more than the number who attended the Russian Usurper’s inauguration.

That will leave a mark.

The Hill said that the march was large enough to be visible from space.

USA Today tells us the demonstration was the largest in the history of the nation’s capital. You know, even if everyone there was a Soros-paid shill…

And Wingnuttia tried to hold the line against the dirty, filthy hippies the inspiring Yutes of Today by sending out their own yute:

…to which one wag replied,

The NRA, of course, saw this as a fine opportunity to raise some Ameros:

“On Facebook Saturday morning, the NRA posted a short membership-drive video along with a brief message.

“Stand and Fight for our Kids’ Safety by Joining NRA,” it said. “Today’s protests aren’t spontaneous. Gun-hating billionaires and Hollywood elites are manipulating and exploiting children as part of their plan to DESTROY the Second Amendment and strip us of our right to defend ourselves and our loved ones.”

Why are the dogs all barking?

And of course, NRATV called the march, The March for their Lies, where the host addressed the Parkland students and said that if their friends hadn’t died, “no one would know your names.”

Dude, that was the point.

    Guess the NRA (nor the Xtian Xrazies) realize that in a David & Goliath analogy, the NRA is Goliath. Just ask Captain Obvious.

    I live a bit too remotely to march anywhere nowadays, but I did put some Street Time in back in the 60’s when there was a War to fight against, and I lived in the city of Berkeley Ca.
    The powers that be called us all kinds of names too, from “Commies” on down. I was proud of that at the time. Proud of theses kids now too.
    We had to get the Voting age down to 18 back then, and we did finally do that. Now these kids who are now, or are almost 18 have a real chance, and they seem to be ready for a change.
    I am excited again. I see Social Change ahead, powered by People again.
    In this age of ‘the Cheetolini”, things are very dark and fearful but the kids have brought a bright ray of hope and I am thrilled.

  5. Can we find someone rich and douchey to wife up Tomi Lahren so that she has something better to do? Do we have Donald Trump Jr’s deets on hand? I hear he’s looking for a new boo.

    The marchers nation-wide were addressing not only changing gun laws or strengthening existing ones, but also solutions to areas where gun violence has a strong grip and how young women have voices as powerful as their male counterparts, if not more so. They showed that this generation is smart, savvy with social media, and not satisfied with being told they’re too young to accomplish anything.

    Basically, a thumb in the eye of the bastards of the NRA. These kids are going to turn the NRA upside down.
