Today’s Paragraphs come to us from Daniel Greenfield, writing for his own blog, sultanknish.com.
Mr. Greenfield’s latest commentary looks into who is running the so-called “March for our Lives” political movement. In other words, he has explored what mainstream media were either too lazy and/or indifferent to look into , or – far worse – what they did look into, found out about, and intentionally suppressed so that the general public would stay nice and ignorant.
The following paragraphs summarize what Mr. Greenfield found out. But they are just a small part of what he has written, which is why I urge you in strongest terms to use this link and read every word:
March for Our Lives is funded by Hollywood celebs, it’s led by a Hollywood producer and its finances are routed through an obscure tax firm in the Valley. Its treasurer and secretary are Washington D.C. pros. And a top funder of gun control agendas is also one of its directors.
None of this has much to do with Parkland. The mass shooting by a mentally ill man who should have been committed and arrested long before he carried out his massacre was a political opportunity.
Now that opportunity is being exploited to the hilt by a professional class of political activists.
Gun control activists wring their hands over the NRA. They claim that a special interest lobby is illegitimately thwarting the “will of the people”. Yet it’s the anti-gun groups that are invariably false fronts. It’s very clear who runs the NRA. But the latest fake anti-NRA group is a nebulous shadow. Out front are the high school students and out back are the professional activists.
And who is really behind the whole thing? Hollywood celebs, Bloomberg, a network of organizations?
Most people, it seems to me, would probably like to know who is behind any organization they consider supporting, and what their motives are.
Daniel Greenfield wins Paragraphs Of The Day honors for giving us the tools to do just that…
…and mainstream media, in general, wins DIS-honors for being too lazy and/or indifferent, and/or dishonest to do the same.
