March For Our Lives organizers boasted days before the event that more than a half-million people would be attending the anti-gun, anti-NRA march.
The real numbers are now in via CBS and the turnout was actually less than half that amount. Given the 24/7 gushing media advertising of the event, it’s an astonishingly poor showing that further bolsters earlier polling data that indicated the vast majority of Americans don’t see yet more gun control legislation as the answer to school violence issues.
“CBS News reports there was actually an estimated 200,000 people at the march. The number comes from Digital Design & Imaging Service Inc. Organizers were hoping to reach a crowd size of 500,000.
DDIS says there were an estimated 202,796 people. The company’s margin of error for its estimate is 15 percent.”
Tens of millions of dollars have poured in from a cross-section of far-left groups to help fund and coordinate the anti-gun “March For Our Lives” protest this weekend. From political activist entities like MoveOn.org to deep-pocket donors like Michael Bloomberg, it is a protest that has expanded far beyond the “student-generated” activism that has been repeatedly portrayed throughout the Establishment Media.
Perhaps most odd though is how involved Planned Parenthood has become in a march which is operating under the guise of “saving children’s lives”.
Regardless of whether or not you are “pro-life/pro-choice” it strikes an undeniably odd tone to have the #1 killer of unborn children orchestrating a march that calls for saving the lives of children.
This is what happens when a manipulative agenda takes over for common sense and truth.
Did you know far more kids drown in the bathtub or from riding bikes than from school shootings? The numbers aren’t even close – as in something like 500% more every year. Do we ban bathtubs for minors? What about a national bike helmet law?
Take away the propaganda and false emotion and introduce real facts and the lie of what is behind “March for our Lives” becomes all too clear. That’s too bad because seeing this nation’s youth express an interest in wanting to make their world better is a good thing. At issue here is that their interests are being manipulated and misused toward a longtime agenda they don’t presently understand.
