Idiot children from the walkout yesterday
I'm amazed they put down their cell phones long enough to bother.
Whose useful idiots are they?
You’re telling me high school students don’t understand the nuances of the gun debate, act on emotion and don’t know what they’re talking about? They’ll make a fine addition to the Democratic Party.
What he means is that they aren't sheep in dead-end jobs who dutifully clock in every morning and spend their lives muttering about their asshole boss and spewing bullshit online.
I've been known to express my disdain for Millennials as a species, but I've developed a new respect for those who are taking action.
And when you've got Congresscritters trying to villify the victims of the Parkland shooting, you know they know they're on the losing end of the argument.
If you NRA fuckers had staged a one-day walk-in to school in support of guns, we might have a higher average GPA around here.
The Democratic Party.
BTW, to the idiot who started the thread: It's "awake," not "woke."
The least you clowns can do is master English as a First Language.
The Democratic Party want to ban guns?
In their defence, G, it's meme slang. And I realise I'm using the word "defence" loosely (and with the UK spelling).
Technically, these kids protesting are considered Generation Z. The youngest millennials are graduating college already.
Still, I'm glad they're doing what we should have been doing after Columbine and certainly after the Tea Baggers tanked Obama's proposal after Sandy Hook.
It's like they don't realize there's 4 million high school kids turning 18 by the midterms

Yeah. It's a highly annoying meme that everyone is using now. You even see it in so called journalist writings.
And if they were holding "God hates fags", signs, Lesbian Shoes and FF would be silently watching their pet crickets breed with each other.
Righties everywhere have that in common. I'm usually very entertained when I troll right wing places. They want to 'save the country' from whatnot - but really every fucking Syrian refugee has better German skills after 2 years than those idiots
Secretly, one assumes. How have you come by this knowledge?
Well, by listening to notable democrats say they want to ban guns for about the last 40 years. Ain't really a secret.
Through getting suckered by sound bites, misquotes, and Photoshop:
You know, it's funny you should mention that, because they basically are.
Which reminds me about that other #WalkUp bullshit the gun lubbers have been toting, crowing about "Oh, but he was bullied and niceness will cure everything" like this is goddamn Yu-Gi-Oh or some shit.
And it's victim shaming. Minorities get picked on and bullied and ignored all the time. I certainly did because I didn't fit into a neat stereotypical box. Why was there no Walk Up movement for black kids after all those cop shootings? Why no Walk Up for Mexicans and Muslims after the 2016 election?
We already went through this shit after Columbine where at least one of them was a complete sociopath who dragged his only buddy into it, so why is this sudden sympathy for a proven anti Semite who had issues with all his classmates and killed birds and cats for fun?
Remaining silent? So are you. Making it a threesome?
@Captain X :
There are more guns at the White House than almost anywhere - there's snipers on the roof, there's dudes walking the property with huge machine guns, the secret service is packing.......
But can't legally leave unless they quit.
Those ain't Millennials anymore... those are Gen Z/alpha.
you're just jealous of their sweet kicks
you should... those kids are gonna try to clarify the 2nd after years of technology and the shape of American society making it fuzzier.
I suspect you'll live to see them succeed, and not in the direction you'd like as if there's anything the gun lobby itself has taught them, it's that compromise is impossible.
Most of them are going to be old enough to vote next election, and old enough to launch political careers by 2024. For us, school shootings were an aberration, but these kids have to have practice drills for it like the older among us knew "Duck, and cover!".
