Stoneman Students Complain All Over the Internet About Betsy DeVos Visit
The new celebrities at Stoneman High School have garnered millions of followers since the shooting. Emma González and David Hogg are the Kardashians of their school. Minus the silicone. The kiddos say nonsensical things, but they suffered through a tragedy. So agree with them. Or else.
Betsy DeVos went to Stoneman to show support for the students. The students don't like adult discussions.
Taking just five questions in a brief press conference following the visit, DeVos did not share specifics of what she discussed with students or which gun control policies she supports as Secretary of Education. "I told the student newspaper reporters that I would love to come back in an appropriate amount of time and just sit down and talk with them," she said.
Indeed, Betsy came to show she's aware of the debate and of the students' stances. 'Twas not enough for the spoiled Twitterlings.
Can we like have a walkout on @BetsyDeVosED ?— Jose Iglesias (@Jose Iglesias)1520399029.0
Thank God I’ll still be in New York. I don’t wanna see her face on my campus https://t.co/GhI566jk1t— Ryan DeWerff (@Ryan DeWerff)1520400679.0
Betsy Devos came to my school, talked to three people, and pet a dog. This is incase the press tries to say something else later— Alanna//#NEVERAGAIN (@Alanna//#NEVERAGAIN)1520435055.0
The press is on your side, sweetie. Just ask Emma about her countless CNN interviews.
Do something unexpected: answer our questions. You came to our school just for publicity and avoided our questions… https://t.co/nRUAW5gYRP— Aly Sheehy Ⓥ (@Aly Sheehy Ⓥ)1520437678.0
All this complaining. Yet no insight into how the Department of Education works. Or how time works for that matter. Even if Betsy could give them the answers to all their demands, one person can't take on all the questions, complaints, and tantrums of an entire high school.

As the press reported on DeVos' visit, they haven't covered any conservative student views except for Kyle Kashuv. A smart kid with some idea of how politics work.
I did, actually. @BetsyDeVosED @BetsyDeVos is an American patriot and is the Sec. of EDUCATION which means she is a… https://t.co/qYmHwuxdDr— Kyle Kashuv (@Kyle Kashuv)1520404649.0
Kyle also wanted to note the students are physically peaceful despite the battleground of opinions on the interwebs.
Believe me, there's no chaos, believe me. https://t.co/SCc190VGzm— Kyle Kashuv (@Kyle Kashuv)1520437815.0
Don't let the professional-esque social media campaigns confuse you. These are high school students. Teenie weenies. Some of whom think the phrase "extra" is sufficient to describe an overbearing person or topic. Their voices fluctuate from that of a toddler to a fag huffing 60-year-old. Sans elderly wisdom.
Many of these children aren't old enough to vote, but the left is doing everything it can to exploit them so as to affect the gun laws of our country. We're not discounting the trauma they have experienced. We're pondering their lack of life experience. Their unfinished, developing teenage brains.
Yes, their thoughts matter. If they want to interject their opinions into the national conversation, let's analyze them. Emotions have a bad habit of blinding the eye holes. In the world of politics, having the Secretary of Education come to an institute of education is an honor. An honor which these students are stomping all over. So which is it, they want to be heard or they don't? Betsy DeVos isn't doing enough or she's doing too much?
Leave the politics to the adults. Or act like adults. Options.
