“Using children..”

You think these young people have no voice or thoughts of their own?

Levi Starks said...

Those without guns demanding something from those with guns.
They may learn something after all.

eddie willers said...

That's exactly what I think, Inga.

Inga...Allie Oop said...

Many of them are less than a year away from voting age.

Yes I know. Scary.

Corporate America is listening to the children, and they want unlimited immigration so that they don't have to employ any of these sissy bitch crybaby cracker ass American kids.

These? No.

The Republic will survive. Somehow. I hope.

Greg said...

All this clearly demonstrates that:
1) Voting should be restricted to people who are net taxpayers, they pay more than they take in.
2) Raise the voting age to 25 unless you are serving in the military
3) Public service unions should either be eliminated, or give up their voting rights.

Greg said...

#1 and #3 may be partly redundant

When about 26 percent of them will actually vote.

gilbar said...

seriously, if we're going to tell crazy disturbed people that they can't have access to guns, can we start with David Hogg? Let's not wait until he starts shooting NRA members; let's act now and lock that loonie up.

Marcus Carman said...

When the children have something interesting to say, I'll gladly listen.

Otto said...

We made that big mistake in the 60s out of cowardness and guilt.

Inga...Allie Oop said...

It’s a huge mistake to dismiss this group as an entity incapable of independent thought.

Sal said...

When about 26 percent of them will actually vote.

And most who vote will go Dem or Green or something like that. It's always been that way, yet the Second Amendment is as secure as ever.

DAN said...

Should the voting age (and, to be fair, enlistment age) be raised to 21?

Jim at said...

Attention whores.
Nothing more.

Breezy said...

Indoctrinated children...

They call themselves critical thinkers yet are not allowing any critical thought into their space.... For example, where were the school officials, BPD and FBI prior to this heinous act, kids?

Get real.

Big Mike said...

It’s a huge mistake to dismiss this group as an entity incapable of independent thought.

The entire age cohort? Many, probably most, are already capable of thinking and acting responsibly. This subgroup? Not on your life.

MeatPopscicle1234 said...

I question their ability to use reason and cognitive ability to make logical decisions based on fact, or present and defend a position based on anything other than emotion-based virtue-signalling... Independent thought requires experience and the wisdom of life that comes through hardship, struggle and overcoming adversity... Otherwise even when you think you’re of your own mind... you’re nothing more than a broken record playing someone else’s theme song...

Sal said...

I was young once. Protesting is fun.

It's a Mob.

ga6 said...

Which one has FBI for father? Hogg or the fuzzy haired Garfunkle look alike?

gilbar said...

Hogg's dad was FBI, and his mom worked for the school district.
Surprisingly, those two groups (according to Hogg) had No Fault in the shooting.
It was all 'cause of the NRA

buwaya said...

Lenin was young once.

rhhardin said...

Klavan, the last time they demonstrated, touchtyped

Here are some questions I'd like to ask the protesting children

Do you know what the Constitution is
Do you understand why the founding fathers thought to protect the right to bear arms from the government
Do you know who the founding fathers were
Do you know what government is
Can you name the three branches of government
How does a bill become law
Who is james madison
Have you done your homework
Why aren't you in school
Have you finished your chores
Do you even have chores
Have you ever read a book without pictures in it
How would it be if the next time you tried to take one of my constitutional rights away I took away your allowence

Shorter mass of kids: Vote corruptocrat. They will save you.

Can Of Cheese for Hunter said...

I want to know if Hogg bullied the shooter.

Bilwick said...

"Serfdom now, serfdom forever!" Sorry, Inga--they stole your motto.

I like how Pajama Boy Hogg or one of his equally brilliant colleagues said how inevitably the NRA and other pro-freedom groups will die off, leaving only the "Jugend" to take over. In other words, tomorrow belongs to them!

stevew said...

Listening? Ah, no, rather pointless. I think Oscar Wilde put it best: "In America the young are always ready to give to those who are older than themselves the full benefits of their inexperience.".

Dr Weevil said...

Some more good questions:
Do you know that a student was arrested just a week or two ago for building bombs to blow up his high school in Utah?
Do you know that school children have been slaughtered with knives in France and China and other countries?
Do you think maybe you should be demonstrating against all kinds of violence in schools, not trying to ban guns for everyone, violent or not?

Can Of Cheese for Hunter said...

Tonight, many of these kids will tune into HBO and watch something violent on TV.

Not quite qualified yet to be Sophomoric.

SweatBee said...

Did they all join hands and sing, "Tomorrow Belongs to Me?"

traditionalguy said...

It is like watching a slow motion suicide. They are demanding that their rights be taken away from them.

Last year Soros was paying out $100 millions for BLM to organize riots demanding that the police be disarmed. And now they want the citizens to be disarmed. It sounds like the Deep State is doing sabotage work before their planned invasion.

Or, the kids have all gone insane.

DavidD said...

I find it interesting how they’re coopting the March for Life name.

Can Of Cheese for Hunter said...

Do you understand the NRA did not kill your friends, a sick sad dejected mofo who was reported to the local police some 30+ times did.

buwaya said...

It will be interesting to see the FBI background check count for March-April.
After falling, overall, in 2017 - 2016 having been a high-sales year - 2018 is looking better. They may even succeed in saving Remington.

Gun sales are a barometer of social anxiety.
It's no accident that sales are running 3X what they were in the 1990s-early 2000s, till about 2007.
Cumulatively, I estimate that "gun control" efforts may have have sold an extra 60-80 million firearms 2007-2017.

madAsHell said...

I'm old enough to remember how poorly this turned out the last time.

Can Of Cheese for Hunter said...

The press are ga-ga over these protestors.

The local Sheriff is a loyal democrat. Don't expect him to help you. It's his job to be a useless bureaucratic flunky.

tim in vermont said...

Somewhere around there are some amazing high school kids with organizational skills, and fundraising abilities that are off the charts! Just think of the logistical problems those high school children overcame!

Lyle Smith said...

Nope, not a listening.

Jim at said...

The thing that's so disingenuous about all this?

None of it would be going on if Hillary was President. Not a single bit.

It's just another chapter in the non-stop temper tantrum against Trump.

Fortunately, temper tantrums don't create policy.

eddie willers said...

I remember watching the forgettable movie, Getting Straight with Elliot Gould and Candice Bergen in 1970.

One scene (and one thought) struck me then enough to never forget it. (remember I was 18)

From IMDB:

Jan: How can you be so cavalier? Did you see what was going on out there? It was ugly!

Harry Bailey: No. That protest... was sexy.

Jan: Sexy?

Harry Bailey: Do you think you're the only one who got laid tonight?


It was that and the next line (that IMDb does NOT have, so I will have to paraphrase it from memory) that struck me like a ton of bricks

You were so slick you slid off the bed

I immediately grasped that that was true and that started me on my long voyage of cynicism.

Lyle Smith said...

It's a mistake not to realize many of these people will change their minds one day. Some of them will feel shame and embarrassment.

Can Of Cheese for Hunter said...

I agree. School shooting under Hillary's watch - this would not be happening.

rcocean said...

Children should be seen and not heard.

Oh well, once we let women vote, letting children vote was the obvious next step.

rcocean said...

Seriously does anyone except the Left care?

They're just talking to themselves.

Lets have a kids march against abortion. The kids can makes speeches about how happy they were that Mom didn't abort them.

Lets see the NYT times cover that March.

walter said...

I'm sure they're talking tons about the multiple bureaucratic failures in Broward County as well as the very different result in Maryland.


Blogger DavidD said...I find it interesting how they’re coopting the March for Life name.

More appropriate to coopt "March Madness"

buwaya said...

To put that in context, assuming that number is 1/3 long arms, that means an extra number of guerrilla weapons in public hands equivalent to 2X the number of individual weapons the US produced in WWII.

The US public seems to be, semi-consciously, arming for a major war.

Humperdink said...

"It’s a huge mistake to dismiss this group as an entity incapable of independent thought.'

Independent thought? If any of the group were members of the Jr ROTC, then yes. Otherwise, as I stated elsewhere, a collection of librul windup toys.

buwaya said...

Someone else does care, or they wouldn't be buying so many guns.

Francisco D said...

Surprise us all by demonstrating your ability to engage in independent thought.

Start by explaining why it's a huge mistake.

Calling the wrong people murderers, wearing Nazi arm bands, and giving Nazi salutes?? No thanks.

walter said...

News clip showing kid saying the gun violence against kids is like Vietnam. "Blood on the streets every day.."
Bet there are some here who have a bit of a problem with that comparison.

Bleach Drinkers Curing Coronavirus Together said...

"Are you listening to the children?"

Of course not. THey're Republicans. Unless these children have a lot of money they don't notice that they exist. Or feel that they should even exist.

That's why they're willing to let so many of them get gunned down.

PB said...

I don't support anti-civil rights movements.

Jim at said...

Or feel that they should even exist.

Yeah. They should be aborted. That'll shut us up.

Bleach Drinkers Curing Coronavirus Together said...

You think these young people have no voice or thoughts of their own?

Of course not. They're Republicans. That's why they're so willing to let so many of them get blown away.

Althouse must be hitting the wine boxes pretty heavily these days. It takes real gall to say that because you're a certain age you have no right or interest (or apparently permission) to protest on behalf of saving your own life. As I said, these Republicans really only think that some people should be allowed to live, let alone speak out for their own lives. It's deeply immoral, very corrupt and obviously something that only a tiny minority would even countenance to dignify.

Killing the kids. Can't even speak out against that. The Republicans are about as humane as Nazis.

Bleach Drinkers Curing Coronavirus Together said...

Yeah. They should be aborted. That'll shut us up.

You can't do that to a 14 - 18 year old, Einstein. But that's why you're ok with them getting gunned down instead. And it won't shut them up, no matter how many weapons you seek to proliferate into their communities. Wow, you guys are like Fast and Furious - High School Edition. So disgusting and fucked up.

Bleach Drinkers Curing Coronavirus Together said...

The press are ga-ga over these protestors.

Good. Maybe they'll vote on behalf of saving them then, as will 90% of the country. While you vote to proliferate more weapons into their communities. You really do have quite a hell of a lot of contempt for them, don't you? No wonder you're ok watching them getting smoked away.

The Toothless State-fellator is, as the name suggests, a statist. That's why he's willing to let his beloved State slaughter millions.* You can't make an omelette without breaking some eggs.

Protected from what?

Bruce Hayden said...

Inga said: "It’s a huge mistake to dismiss this group as an entity incapable of independent thought."

Here is the thing - they pretty well aren’t capable of independent thought at their ages. Their brains are not fully formed, and most aren’t going to get to adult levels of judgement until their mid twenties - 7-10 years from now. Now, absent that, they are thinking almost completely emotionally. Which, of course, is why they are so easy to manipulate by Soros and Bloomberg financed operatives. The left (including of course Inga) desperately wants us to take them and their protest seriously. We shouldn’t, except maybe to join the NRA, if we haven’t already, as our response. And maybe buy more guns (I have my wish list ready for when I get back up to MT, where I can legally purchase such).

Bleach Drinkers Curing Coronavirus Together said...

Right now your party and your policies are running the state, and running the kids suffering under it into the ground. And your obsession with sucking dick is getting a little boring. I guess you refer to it so knee-jerkingly because you want to distract from the fact that you don't have any thoughts of your own. Or have gone without fellatio for quite some time.

One thing is certain: if any of them were capable of independent thought, Inga would have nothing to do with them.
"Independent Thought" = Democrat Party Line.
"Lets have a conversation"= Listen to my monologue, you deplorable knuckle dragger.

Bleach Drinkers Curing Coronavirus Together said...

Apparently the so-called "good guys with guns" are voting to proliferate more guns to the "bad guys with guns."

But they like that. It helps make them feel more heroic.

You got to hand to the right. They feel heroic even without doing a thing to save those kids. The more of them that gunned down, the more heroic they feel. Any day now they'll step right in and save all those assaulted kids. Any day.

Just not today. Today is a day to rally for giving more guns to anyone who wants them. And to belittle the kids and tell them that they have nothing to say and should just shut up and die already. Go back into the classroom and get shot.

Jim at said...

Well, at least Ritmo is running his mouth on-line today and isn't out there prancing in public with a silly sign.

There is hope.

Michael K said...

No, I see kids joining the military all the time and most of them are doing a wise thing.

College right now is a waste of time and money unless you are majoring in a science field.

The amusing part of this is those kids probably don't understand why the shooting happened and it has zero to do with NRA.

"School to Prison Pipeline" is the reason and the Obama admin policy of ignoring crime by blacks or "brown."

The amusing part of this is that the killer was probably not even of Hispanic ethnicity as he was adopted.

The idiocy of all this is just amazing and indicative of how far American common sense has fallen.

It will be good for gun sales though, so not a complete waste.

Bleach Drinkers Curing Coronavirus Together said...

...prancing in public with a silly sign...

Yes, I'm not surprised that you find sentiments directed at reducing the number of our kids who get killed as "silly."

Bleach Drinkers Curing Coronavirus Together said...

Ha ha. Setting themselves up for a lifetime of panhandling as they discover that the government whose only use for them as cannon fodder doesn't care if they live or die after a "tour" of finding imperial subjects to kill. You fuckers crack me up. The homeless vet phenomenon is the starkest signifier of just how evil Republicans are. Even the demographics they proclaim to respect the most, get just as fucked over by the big government they claim to hate so much as everyone else. Give me a break. I should give a homeless vet your home address and enough for a bus ticket to crash at your doctor's pad in Arizona. I have no doubt that you'll turn him right away the second he lands on your porch.

Bilwick said...

How about those millions killed by your best bud, Toothless?

Bleach Drinkers Curing Coronavirus Together said...

It will be good for gun sales though, so not a complete waste.

The number of gun owners in America declines below a third, and the number of hunters even further, while the number of guns (1 per American stays stead or rises).

I know of no one who can adeptly use three guns at once.

Having more than they know what to do with is a Republican specialty.

Michael said...

Kids are awesome!! Imagine. High schoolers armed with laptops, smart phones and social media organized these gigantic marches in a few weeks. Double awesome. What is really great is that they are going to keep this up until the guns are controlled. Watch. Next week the marches will be triple the size of these and the week after bigger still. And the good news is that CNN is going to never let them down. CNN will be there for them week after week, month after month.
Kids are awesome.

Bleach Drinkers Curing Coronavirus Together said...

I think Republicans just claim to like the military while really seeing it as a way to "thin the herd" - which is what they like to do most.

Abwartion.

Why didn’t they march on the Broward County Sheriff’s office or the Obama Education Department? Cruz, the shooter, should have been in jail.

Don't mean to go all Godwin on you, but I don't think Hitler had any intention of allowing the Jugend to vote, nor Mao his Red Guards.

Kids can think all right, but they have no idea how foolish adults can be until they have been adults themselves for a while.

Humperdink said...

Listening to children:

I had an Amish guy and his son working on my house. The dad, Ervin, and I have been friends for years. They speak German when they don't want you to know the conversation, otherwise it's in English. The kid starts speaking to his father in German. Ervin, my friend, responds in German. The kid had a cross look on his face and went back work.

So I ask Ervin: "What's up?". He responds that his son was hungry. So I ask him: "What did tell him?". Ervin said: "Sometimes it's good to be hungry".

He listened and then went to work.

If by "circles" you mean "well housed", well then you're right. My "circle" includes a pad. Although I don't think people who aren't homeless (like me, for instance) are "depraved." I don't think most people do.

You have a strange way of seeing the world.

Go do something about those homeless vets. After all, you got your Big Government Deep State to either make killers of them or put their killing tendencies to important use. You wouldn't be so cynical as to tell people who kill on behalf of your Big Government Deep State that the same Big Government Deep State should just let them die now, would you?

Maybe you're just a sneakier social darwinist than I thought. Leaving the vets to starve and freeze. Not very nice now, are you Dr. Mike?

Hagar said...

I saw a clip of this Hogg kid on TV last night. It was hard to tell what he was saying for all the bleeping of his obscenities. He obviously has chosen a poor grade of adult to imitate.

BTW, the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School kids were flown to Washington on some football team's corporate jet.
Who is paying for the buses for the others? Surely not the kids from their lunch allowances?

To be perfectly honest, that Hoag kid is kind of a douche bag to be blaming this on a group that advocates for gun rights.

As a member of that group I did not cause that massacre and I am not responsible for it. Period.

Lets ban democrats from having guns and see how that works.

Almost every mass shooting happens in a gun free zone.

Lets make entities liable for violence in their gun free zones.

The Left thinks people under age of 21dont know enough about guns and responsibility to be allowed to buy a gun, but these same people should be making our gun laws for us. The Left is incapable of rational thought.

As for the kids from the school that got shot up who are marching to ban our guns, how rational is it to think that if they get their way, they’ll never again be in a situation where only one guy has a gun——the bad guy coming to kill them?

Stupid is as stupid does.

No, not at all. They are too ill informed to realize that they are far more likely to be sexually abused by a teacher than to be killed or shot in school. This is nothing more or less than a continuation of the Maoist tactics of "progressive" culture war. They jumped the shark almost immediately.

Most people who agree with me already - (i.e. most of America) - avoid this little blog. Duh. I don't mind engaging you all because unlike the vast majority of America, I accept that that you're irrational types who really just need your thoughtlessness exposed. The thinking majority assume that you're rational people who can't be understood. I know this is not the truth, though. You're irrational people who just have emotional attachments to strange things.

Lol. This is what you call "an argument?" Hilarious. Well, if your hands make such good weapons then obviously you don't need high-powered killing devices from afar with which to massacre scores now, do you? Problem solved. There's your "arms." You're already bearing them. I guess you're saying we can ban all guns now.

Children are fitting persuaders of childish minds.

BEN SHAPIRO: Let’s stop making children into moral authorities.

On March 14, high school students from Parkland, Fla., led a school walkout in favor of gun control. The media have already appointed student witnesses of the horror at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School untouchable moral authorities; their opinions are not to be questioned.

But now, the left has found even more sympathetic faces for its agenda: kindergarteners. According to The Wall Street Journal, “Schools are grappling with how to address the event with children as young as 5 years old and with finding ways for children who are too little to be told about school shootings to take part.” Children in pre-K at Manhattan Country School will sing, “If I Had a Hammer” and “Paz y Libertad.” Public schools like PS 321 in Brooklyn allowed children to do activities linked with the protests.

There is something deeply perverse about using children to promote a political agenda. Children simply don’t know anything about politics. Sometimes children ask questions that help us rethink the world because they’ve had little experience with it — when my 4-year-old daughter asks questions about the universe, that prompts me to further learning and research. But she doesn’t have answers, because she’s a child.

What makes children particularly valuable is their innocence, not their ignorance. The left seems to like conflating the two characteristics. Innocence, as a quality, isn’t about lack of knowledge or gullibility. The fact that everything in the world is wondrous to children is charming, but it’s not something we can truly protect; as children age, they learn more, and they become more jaded, as we all do. We experience moments of wonder throughout our lives but never as we do when we’re young. That’s natural.

But we can protect innocence.

Innocence is the moral quality of being sinless, and children are inherently innocent specifically because they have not yet developed the ability to distinguish right from wrong. Once they do, the only way to maintain their innocence is for them to do right — the same way we all attempt to maintain our innocence.

But children must first be taught right from wrong. That means that as children develop their capacity to choose, they must develop a moral compass. Children don’t have such a compass — the most selfish, cruel and nasty human beings on Earth are small children. If 2-year-olds had the capacity to carry weapons of war, we’d all be dead already; my son isn’t yet 2 and takes a peculiar pleasure in knocking down his sister’s blocks. That’s why it’s a good thing they’re so damned cute.

But they’re not moral guides. We must protect them from having to act as moral guides until they are prepared to do so. And that means we must stop using their innocence — their lack of capacity for moral decision-making — as a substitute for moral authority. To do anything less isn’t merely foolish; it’s cruel.

You know, before the Republicans convinced you and all those other dying white males that guns, corporations and authoritarian leadership were more important?

BEN SHAPIRO: Let’s stop making children into moral authorities.

Well if anyone should know about childish moral authorities it'd be Ben Shapiro. A guy whose about 4'11" and takes his moral authority literally from bronze age documents telling mid-east goat herders to either separate their consumption of milk from their consumption of meat or face certain death from the Almighty.

Did someone say "guns, corporations, and authoritarian leadership"? Someone seems to have forgotten the Constitution. Odd: whenever someone suggests banning porn, they're told it can't be done because of the First Amendment, which doesn't mention porn, and which no one thought protected porn until well into the 20th century. Yet the same people feel entitled to ignore the Second Amendment's explicit text.

Yea - of course they did. So what - that means they don't believe what they are marching for and should not be listened to? God forbid that high school kids who saw their classmates gunned down should have an opinion on the topic. Agree or disagree on the merits, but show some respect.

You mean Scalia? His landmark Heller ruling states exactly what you bozos can't understand - it's limited as is any right. Are inmates' rights to bearing arms "infringed?" Should they be? You don't say. (You conserv assholes still can't account for that fact). And yet inmates can still say (or write) pretty much whatever they want. Imagine that. Rights defined by practical reality.

He said that it's not an unlimited right, can ban certain guns (including many that already were for being "dangerous") and as with the 1st doesn't mean you can force any private individual to host it. Read the fucking text, retard. It's the best SCOTUS interpretation you've got going for your whacked-out "interpretation" and even it doesn't go as far as you fetishist absolutists wildly imagine that it does.

But then there wouldn't be a bunch of fools that complain about cops shooting people then immediately say only cops should have guns.

Or they say that we should ban rifles even though knives that kill 3 times as many people.

Naw. It is way easier to get a bunch of drooling idiots like ARM to march for gun control if they are ignorant of facts.

If a kid thinks he's invulnerable then he's stupid. Most accidents are caused instead by curiosity - which is also an instinct that you and the other right-wingers don't possess. And one instinct temporarily being operative doesn't mean that the other one disappeared, dummy. It just wasn't thought necessary in that moment. Unless you're naturally afraid of everything - which I hear that many right-wingers are.

"It’s a huge mistake to dismiss this group as an entity incapable of independent thought."

Individuals have the capacity to think — independently and dependently.

I don't think an "entity" thinks — even dependently. People may move in a group, but the minds are separate. It would be spooky if they could think as an entity.

So I think it's a huge mistake NOT to dismiss this group as an entity incapable of independent thought.

Can individual children think independently? In a strict sense, no one thinks completely independently, but I don't see how children can think in any seriously independent way about policy. I'm sure they can arrive on their own at a feeling of caring about threats of violence, but ideas about what the threat level really is and odds of different dangerous things affecting them have got to come from outside sources not to be radically distorted. I remember as a child worrying about various dangerous things but I way overestimated the threat posed by lava and quicksand.

I'm sure the children are worried about getting shot at school, but their level of feel is not independent. It has been stirred up by news coverage. It makes some sense to be afraid of school shootings, along with tornados, bombs, rabid bats, falling, e coli, and suicide. But what to do about it? The idea that particular gun control measures will be effective and worth it must necessarily be based on relying on other people to supply the ideas and I doubt very much that the people did this were neutral experts. And I think many young people form their opinions based on a desire to fit in with the crowd and be popular.

The result of this was the 37 events that should have warned the authorities that Cruz was dangerous and should be on the NICS database, were not reported and he was able to buy the gun.

This has NOTHING to do with the NRA. The children's march is theater.
