Media (and Trudeau) praise anti-gun teens — facts and “boring statistics” be damned

Ezra LevantRebel Commander


Over the weekend, there was a huge rally in Washington, DC calling for a ban on guns.

USA Today claimed that 800,000 people were there. Except that’s not true. Experts consulted by CBS News say it was 200,000. Still a lot. But the fact that the organizers, and the media, exaggerated that statistic tells you not trust them without verifying what they say.

They called this protest the "March for Our Lives." There is already an annual protest in Washington called the March for Life, a pro-life march. It was three times bigger than this anti-gun rally. But it got a sliver of the media coverage.

What’s weird about this protest is that organizers clearly made it an international protest — foreigners telling the U.S. to change their laws.

Justin Trudeau tweeted his support. He loves to lecture America about guns. There is more violent crime in Canada, per capita, than in the U.S. More property crimes, too. But don’t bother Trudeau with those facts.

By the way: Do you know haw many Americans are killed in any given year by rifles — including the dreaded “assault rifles” which are just rifles painted black, with plastic scary parts. Ten thousand? A hundred thousand?

WATCH and I'll tell you...

The media went along with the idea that a bunch of teenagers organized protests around the world.

Really? Does any teenager you know have the ability to organize anything bigger than a house party?

This movement has adopted the phrase “never again,” which for decades was used for Holocaust remembrance. A shooting at a high school is an atrocity, a tragedy and a crime. But it’s not a Holocaust.

In fact, the Holocaust happened, in part, because Hitler seized all the guns.

Hitler also knew the power of getting teenagers on board. Mao had the Red Guards. The Soviets idealized Pavel Mrozov, a boy who turned in his parents to the secret police.

But all the media cares about are that today's anti-gun kids are exciting. And they lived through a high school shooting — so you can’t question them.

And if you do, you're like... Hitler.

NEXT: To talk more about the many absurdities surrounding the March For Our Lives, and who's really behind it, I'm joined by Breitbart Senior Editor Joel Pollak.

THEN: Tony Bernardo, President of the Canadian Shooting Sports Association, comes on to talk about how the Liberals are using American issues to change our firearms laws.

FINALLY: Your letters to me!

Andrew Mirlach:- “The same people who think you should be 21 before you can buy a gun, think 16 year olds should vote?”… Well yeah… Apparently that makes perfect sense to the SJW types… And which yet again illustrates how much such “intellect” should be respected or even listened to…

Jonathan Bryant…I approve of this.

I used to really hate the old adage, “Children should be seen and not heard”. Since I became an adult it has become something of a beauty to me. Would be nice if some adult got all Drill Seargent in that fist pump brats face and went all ‘Full Metal Jacket’ on him. That would be awsome.

The same people who think you should be 21 before you can buy a gun, think 16 year olds should vote? They think the borders should be open and that even the most violent of illegals should never be deported? Why is it that gun free districts that have been run by Democrats for decades have the worst gun crimes? Maybe because there are no BORDER CONTROLS to keep drugs and guns from entering? Yet somehow completely opening borders and keeping terrorists in the country leads to a better world… The tolerance and diversity promoters, have Zero Tolerance for those who have an opinion that “diverges” from theirs.

Isn’t it interesting and instructive, that the attention of these children has been turned from the failures of the local police (who seem to think that standing around outside listening to 17 people being murdered, is an acceptable response) and the vaunted FBI ( who are more adept at unseating a duly elected President, than they are in stopping this mass shooting) to supporting every democrat / liberal’s wet dream; gun seizure and repeal of the second amendment. Socialists feel no shame in politicising children and using them to advance their dangerous agenda and that is why socialists have hi-jacked the education systems north and south of the border.

Great report by Katie Hopkins on Tucker Carlson Tonight Show concerning LA’s Skid Row over in The Rebels on Twitter section. Gee, cholera in Vancouver and excrement in the streets of LA, isn’t the “left coast” wonderful?

Jan G writes there is no anti-abortion group. The term pro choice was created by the feminists and leftists as a euphemism to replace any characterization of a woman’s decision to have an abortion which in reality is terminating , killing and destroying a human baby.
The proper terms should be Anti-Abortion versus Pro-Abortion. As soon as you use strong language that actually describes life and death , you start winning the argument. Too bad that some smug arrogant leftist has to be exposed to words like death and killing and termination and don’t get to hide behind their phony nice euphemisms.

A sociologist has estimated that of the 200,000 that showed up in DC, only 10% were actually kids. The demonstration was just your basic Soros funded anti-Trump event attended by the usual far left zealots who are a dime a dozen in DC. Is that the best you’ve got Sorosman?

@Space Moose…yes, in fact several gun companies have gone out of business or changed hands with foreign owners. Webley in the UK was bought by the Turkish firm Zoraki (rumble of WW1 vets rolling over in graves), Colt USA is in receivership (Colt Canada is expanding) Winchester is now made in Japan, Jerico got closed down because the owner got caught insider trading…I could go on…it’s called mismanagement.

There was once a bordello in Nevada that got caught out by the IRS…but by federal law the IRS had to act as receivers so as not to cause the employees to loose their jobs….it went …ummm…tits up ….about a year later. Oh yes…..bureaucrats are so inept at running companies that they couldn’t make a profit running a whorehouse and selling whiskey…..

Remingtons competetors have been making equal or better products at a much more attractive price.

Everything that comes out of the Trudeau Liberal government is a catastrophic mistake, the exact opposite of what the country actually needs, the exact prescription for devolving society into a less livable state.

I pray Canadians wake up nationwide and see this government for the ongoing catastrophe that it is, before it is too late to save this once free, prosperous, magnificent country from the death it is headed for under Trudeau.

Hate brings hate, death brings death but guns are just tools.If guns did not exist, other tools would be used to kill.A kitchen knife is just as dangerous as any other knife(not really but still).We need to wake up and give people the tools and the strenght to defend themselves.
The more civilised we become, the less we hurt each other but no matter what, violence will never cease to exist since there will always be someone who wants someone else dead, no matter what.

All these kids are so clueless as to what is really happening. They are all but a big handful of Pawns being used to tout the Left Wing Agenda with the aid of the traitorous, lying media. For these anti gun fools to even contemplate war against the right that comprise the nations gun owners is insanity. The Left will be decimated by the Right if the Right does indeed pick up their weapons to retaliate against these stupid, irritating, foolish, immature, virtue signalling teenage puppets. Whose strings are being manipulated by the likes of Barack Obama and George Soros. Civil War is a strong possibility for the near future, the law abiding citizens are tired of being labelled as criminals simply because they own firearms. They are ready to fight for their right to keep and bear arms, if they do not, they will lose not only that right but any others that the Left wishes to take from them. They are being squeezed into a corner, when the time comes the Left will be sorry they violated the Second Amendment. Those on the Right that are gun owners, many are ex military, the Right are organized beyond the NRA and most are well trained in firearms usage and in a general combat role. If the Left chooses to fight it out with the Right, at the conclusion of the struggle, the Left will be left for dead by the Right. Prepare, Train and Equip.

The weaponized anti gun kids are not going to succeed in helping the government take the guns of Americans. Not going to happen. That, this movement is spreading globally just shows it is coming from outside of North America. The pattern of these movements is becoming obvious and will be the reason they won’t succeed. We pretty well know its BS before they get started.

Good show, good info.
So glad to hear Tony Bernardo say he thinks Scheer and others will hold their ground.

I really enjoy seeing the Hogg twerp whining about having to use a transparent backpack, welcome to Communism idiot. You wanted it for others , why did you think you would be deciding on what is enforced?

Seems to me i remember such marches towards similar goals , now when did that happen?? Oh right , NAZI GERMANY!

1.I’ve said this before, but the “WE DAY” in Canada is propaganda and designed to screw up the little heads attending that gathering. This is a Trudeau/Soros initiative.
2. The US March For Life is a PRO-LIFE march, not ‘anti-abortion’. There is no ANTI-ABORTION group, movement or whatever. It is PRO-LIFE.
Remember, pro-life means from the moment of conception to the end of life. Not just abortion.

I’m a gun nut sure but a reasonable one. These big rallies around the world and in canada will just make me fight harder and donate more money to the NRA, the CSSA and the National Firearms Association in Edmonton. Good comments by Ezra and Mr. Pollak today right on the money. I think we are in for some very tough times in public discourse. I’m at least as right wing as those goddamn lefties are left.
commented 2018-03-26 22:19:06 -0400
I think it’s pretty lame that Canadians can’t find enough to fix about their own country that they bus into the U.S.A. to tell them how to deal with their problems.

I have a FaceBook page, but I have very, very rarely used it because I never liked the idea that FaceBook owns any pictures you may post on your page. After all this news, I will never use FaceBook.

I’ve been using rifles, pistols and shotguns SAFELY and competently off for fifty years. I’m so sick and tired of being scapegoated by the Libtards and their lapdogs in the MSM as somehow being a contributor to criminal activity who needs closer and closer regulation. As if that would impede the criminals. What needs to be done is to throw the crooks who use firearms in the commission of a violent crime in jail and keep them there until they rot. But no, the Liberals are criminal friendly and have fostered the revolving door justice system. So it’s easier to punish the law abiding, tax paying and property owning recreational gun users and pretend they’re doing a virtuous thing…
This country badly needs a regime change in 2019…

I’m not what people would call a “gun nut” but I realize that they’re a powerful tool in the hands of good citizens. What we need to do is to tell average Canadians that guns actually save lives. Most non gun owners never hear the truth about firearms. The media frightens them with words like “assault rifle” instead of informing them about the real situation.

In the US, 11 teens per day die from texting and driving, that’s over 3 times teen gun deaths, I demand that teens give up their cell phones and drivers licences.

The children are being used…rules for radicals dictate you take advantage of every crisis. Follow the money, this was not a student organized protest. Paid protesters were also in attendance, and, leftist organizations let the money flow, along with a heavy dose of propaganda.

Trudeau is a backdoor man… C-71 is another example of how he rolls!
commented 2018-03-26 20:49:36 -0400
- A well organized, well funded, spontaneous grassroots protests. Opposing views forbidden. Big on ignorance & devoid of facts. If these kids organized this farce than the DNC should be okay with letting them organize their next profession. Almost 60,000 people murdered every year in strict gun control Brazil. The criminals have guns. The gangs have guns. Law abiding citizens have to hide & if they fail, they die.

- David Hogg was probably the wrong guy to choose to be the mainstream media puppet. He’s really not very bright. The irony award goes to planned parenthood for throwing their support behind this “March for Our Lives” farce. BTW – planned parenthood outspends the NRA by a huge margin when it comes to politics.

- There were no Germans or French or Haitians at that “March for Our Lives” farce – they were globalists. Trudeau isn’t a Canadian, he’s a globalist. It’s not like he’s been shy about saying so. He looks out for globalist concerns, not Canadian concerns. Gun control is a goal of the far left & globalists are far left. Globalists set up puppets like Trudeau. Butts acts as his strings. Soros acts as his puppet master.

What I find interesting is that between the shooting incident and this past weekend, the students had time to attend school (with some leeway provided), arrange for the required permitting and security in Washington DC, book accommodations and transport, arrange with banner/flag companies for the pageantry on display and … even make a logo! A logo of all things!

Of course, I didn’t hear one mainstream media outlet comment on the logo. Because if they did, the whole student-led narrative would fall apart and they’d have to start asking real questions as to whose money was paying for the permitting, hotel rooms, transport, security, pageantry and … the logo design!

Thoughts?

The guns they made have been junk for a number of years.
