The protesters are a public-school indoctrination success story, given how they have so easily embraced the official line on gun control put out by government officials. If Americans will just accede to gun control, the notion goes, these type of shootings will be brought to a halt.
Yeah, right. And I've got some nice beautiful swampland in Florida I'd like to sell for you on which you can build a nice home.
Some people are comparing the student protests of today with those that took place in the 1960s. That is pure nonsense. The protests in the 1960s were against the killings that the U.S. government was committing in Vietnam. The protests today are totally silent about the mass killings that the U.S. government has committed and continues to commit abroad and are instead intended to amplify government power by disarming the citizenry.
In fact, notice something important about those high school protesters and, well, for that matter, much of the so-called millennial generation — i.e. people in their twenties: While they are understandably angry and outraged over the killing of those 17 students, they are totally nonplussed over the much bigger killer in our midst, the U.S. government. In fact, not only are the protesters and the millennial generation nonchalant about the government's killings, many of them actively support the government's commission of those killings.
