There’s more. Tweets referring to the NRA’s Carry Guard insurance as “Murder Insurance” went from being largely ignored during prior pushes to getting certain Center for American Progress-related accounts hundreds of retweets. Those tweets were being pushed and circulated in a way they hadn’t been before.
Basically, the left had money and infrastructure ready to go for an all-out assault on guns and the NRA, they just needed the right moment — the right victims.
It’s sickening, when you think about it; they were basically waiting for children to die so that they could swoop in and blame everyone they dislike, instead of the actual shooter. They paraded grieving children in front of cameras without any care for their well-being just to help their cause.
And as much as it pains me to say this, and as much as I think this was a horrible thing for the Left to do; the right should learn from these tactics. Everyone remembers Michelle Obama saying “When they go low, we go high,” even though neither party really goes high. It was probably the most ridiculous thing she said as First Lady. Because what the Left has down with Parkland is not high, it’s incredibly low.
