Is there any more perfect way for students to give the finger to those Progressive Jackboots?
The school walkout was ‘big news’. It couldn’t HELP but be big news… even before it happened. Why? Because every ‘progressive’ community organizing group and their dog was sending out pressers to MAKE this “grassroots” movement big news.
But watch what happens when the kids turn that narrative on its head.
We called BS on the walkout being grassroots right from the beginning.
We also gave Hell to the ghoulish opportunists that were already turning this into a political event before the next of kin had been notified.
Students have since flipped the script.
Teachers gave a big thumbs up for a policy that was ‘protecting lives’ of students. A march to ‘honor the lives’ of those seventeen dead in the Florida shooting.
One teacher, as part of a critical thinking exercise, [God bless her for being a teacher that even still knows what Critical thinking is] asked whether other causes would be equally supported by schools and faculty. Or if they were just supporting this because it lined up with their biases?
Great question. Those double standards are now being put to the test.
This week, Rocklin High School students are using social media to organize a pro-life walkout using the hashtag #life.
“To honor all the lives of aborted babies pretty much. All the millions of aborted babies every year,” said organizer Brandon Gillespie.
He says his history teacher inspired the idea. She was a teacher that paid the price for swimming against the tide.

There are some key similarities and differences between this protest and the other walkout.
First, they are both organizing in support of the lives of victims.
Second, they both involve student protests during school hours, on school property.
Third, this one does NOT have the organized support of leftist activist groups across the country, and is therefore truly ‘grassroots’. (Which means the one everyone got giddy about in the news is what the left likes to call ‘astroturf’ when it supports causes they dislike.)
Right on schedule, here comes the pushback:
“Abortions aren’t really anything that has to do with school or students here,” said Naeirika Neev.
Neev is the editor of the school newspaper. In her posts, she’s using the hashtag “enough is enough” to promote peace, and take a stance against anything anti-abortion on campus.
“They have their First Amendment, they can go protest about that anytime anywhere,” she said.
But Brandon says protesting on school grounds is just the point.
The Newspaper editor wants them to NOT exercise their free speech on campus, becasue she dislikes what he is supporting.
We’ll give her a moment for the irony of that to sink in.
Brandon hasn’t picked a date yet, but he’s set to speak with is principal.
We hope he records the meeting.
Stay rowdy, kid. This loopy world could use another 100,000 like you.
Does your grandpa go off on paltry politicians, whether they be Democrats or Republicans? Does he get misty eyed when he talks about God and Country and America’s future? And have you ever heard him scream, ‘Awww … Hell no!’ when Rosie O’Donnell starts yapping on television? If you answered yes to one, or all of the above, then your gramps will love Doug Giles’ latest book, My Grandpa Is A Patriotic Badass.
Don’t be fooled by the title — this ain’t just for Grandpa.
The Snowflake Generation — and the rest of America — needs a good ol’ dose of ‘Grandpa wisdom’.
Especially if that Grandpa is Doug Giles.
You’ll love My Grandpa Is A Patriotic Badass just as much as Grandpa will.
Here’s a shirt for real men (and women, too):
Why be average? It’s so overrated.
Everyone does that.
