Stockton Anti-Gun Violence Protest Becomes Violent
This post was written early Tuesday morning. The over/under for David Hogg blaming the Stockton violence on the NRA or Gov. Rick Scott is mid-morning Tuesday. Gotta be ambiguous on time for all your different time zones. To bite off of The Reagan Battalion, this is what happens when you let people claim political opponents don't care about kids. Especially when it goes unchallenged by grown-ups who should know better.
From KCRA Sacramento:
What happens when @CNN allows @davidhogg111 to tell fellow children day after day that the adults don’t care about them?

At least five students were arrested Friday as hundreds of others from several Stockton high schools walked out of classes in protest of gun violence after last week's deadly shooting at a Florida high school.
Students at Stagg, Edison, Chavez, Lincoln and Village Oak high schools were walking along streets, creating traffic problems in the area as streets were blocked off.
Stockton police said some students threw rocks and damaged both police and citizen vehicles.
Peaceful. Tell me again how they're against "violence."
Five arrests were made, including charges of battery on an officer, resisting arrest, taking an officer's baton and vandalizing vehicles, including patrol vehicles, Stockton police said.
Yes, this is a thirty-second clip of a longer news segment (that wasn't readily embeddable). The full clip shows there were other non-violent protests. Everyone gets a cookie for that. This Stockton protest was an isolated incident...for now. The rub is that violence is par for the course when the left gets together to protest (see WATCH: Mobs of “Tolerant” Leftists Violently Protest Election Outcome… and Leftist Protesters Get Violent Against Trump Supporters in San Jose, California…). Also, when a protest becomes violent, I don't think it's still considered a "protest." Just like it's hard to call Hillary a "human" after her seventh blood sacrifice for full body regeneration.
The media, by continuing to exploit kids' ignorance, keep adding fuel to the fire. It's harmful when media invites a tween on Morning Joe or the Chris Cuomo Power Hour. Especially as that tween claims people who disagree with them literally have blood on their hands literally. We can say the same with every celebrity tweet calling the NRA a terrorist origination. That is literally responsible for 17 kids being murdered literally. That none of them literally knows what literally means is the fault of their 8th grade English teachers. Who should literally be fired.
Please stop abusing literally. Where's the march for that?
Media is pouring gasoline on the fire of immaturity and stupidity as potentially hundreds of thousands of Justin Beiber's target audience plans to cut class and march on Washington. That's a problem. Not least of all for Justin Beiber's concert attendance that week. How will he buy a new Tesla if Skylar and Braden are designing posters with gun chants? Think of the little people.
But hey, ratings!
