Did you hear any reporters wondering how that Florida shooting became a campaign so quickly?
Because that IS a question we raised here on Clashdaily.
Guess what? We nailed it!
While many other outlets got swept up in the movement itself — which was obviously newsworthy — some of us went deeper. We were curious about how everything could fall together so quickly.
Why, for example, were there professionally printed ‘never again’ signs and bullhorns at the Parkland protest, if it was just a grassroots movement spontaneously generated by grieving and outraged students?
Are we seeing a ‘grassroots movement’ or cynical ‘astroturfing’ hijacking their vulnerable emotional state, and public sympathy to cram a political ultimatum down our throats?
Hogg has become Shaun King 2.0. He is the photogenic figurehead of what is now obviously yet another astroturf movement heavily bankrolled by leftist activist groups.
No WONDER there was a major scheduled ‘march’ (with a name) within a day or two of the shootings.
No WONDER Hogg has a detailed Wiki page (and probably a publicist).
How many other teenage kids do you know with the Twitter check mark and hundreds of thousands of followers?
Clearly, ‘mourning’ is consuming all of Hogg’s time and energy. Well, that and TV appearances. And grinning on social media.
Forgive us if we’re a little skeptical of someone so boldly using emotional blackmail to force his adolescent politics (or those of his handlers) down the nation’s throat.
It also explains why students holding a different view of which changes need to happen never seem to show up on camera.
We now know who those backers really are. A leftist site was bragging about them.
Barely two weeks ago, the student survivors sat in a circle in the living room of one of their parents’ homes, planning a trip to Tallahassee to meet with lawmakers and handling nitty-gritty matters like which media outlets to talk to.
Since then, major players and organizations — including Everytown, Giffords, Move On, Planned Parenthood, and the Women’s March LA — told BuzzFeed News they are helping the students with logistics, strategy, and planning for next month’s March for Our Lives rally and beyond. Much of the specific resources the groups are providing to the Parkland students remains unclear — as is the full list of supporting organizations — but there are broad outlines.
They’re not even trying to hide it.

Hold up. Did you catch that?
Everytown, Giffords, Move On, Planned Parenthood, and the Women’s March LA.
MoveOn got involved, too. (Of course they did.)
Everytown is the group that put out that completely bogus stat about ’18 school shootings’ in the first 6 weeks of 2018 that the Media (D) were all citing.
Planned Parenthood — whose entire mandate is literally, from the Pro-life perspective, the actual Killing of Children is on board with ‘protecting lives’.
Don’t they have enough to worry about with that DOJ Baby Parts investigation?)
Maybe Planned Parent should rethink their own mandate. Why?
The data may indicate that Planned Parenthood is actually part of the problem, not part of the solution. So, Planned Parenthood? You can kindly STFU.
We can’t help but notice that each and every one of these groups are either Left-leaning or Lefter than Lenin.
What does this really tell us?
It tells us who is willing to hijack a tragedy, and the mourning period of high school children, to use them as ‘human shields’ so that emotion, not facts can drive the public conversation about their political agenda.
Doug Giles had some choice words about any sick vultures willing to pimp out school kids like that.
And if anyone is interested in FACTS rather than just heated emotional rhetoric about the latest looming crisis that absolutely MUST compel us to forego our Second Amendment rights, you can find that here:
The Effeminization Of The American Male
by Doug Giles
Doug Giles, best-selling author of Raising Righteous And Rowdy Girls and Editor-In-Chief of the mega-blog, ClashDaily.com, has just penned a book he guarantees will kick hipster males into the rarefied air of masculinity. That is, if the man-child will put down his frappuccino; shut the hell up and listen and obey everything he instructs them to do in his timely and tornadic tome.

We’ve all wondered for a long time, but it looks like medical science has finally determined the problem.
It’s spreading like a plague. For some reason, Liberals are losing their ever-loving minds.
Trump Derangement — and Romney Derangement before that — and Bush Derangement before that are only the tip of the iceberg.
What is driving them so berzerk?
Looks like we’ve found an answer:
A liberal walks into the hospital and asks for an X-ray of its skull. Doctors confirmed what we already feared. Here’s the sad diagnosis…
That’s the ladies’ version. You can get it here.
Don’t worry. There’s one for the guys, too.
You can get the guy’s version here.
