Watch Live: The Amazing “March for Our Lives” Rally to End Gun Violence

Politics • Views: 29,486

It’s amazing to see this finally happening. After all the horrific mass shootings, all the grinding, senseless violence enabled by the GOP and the NRA, America seems to be at a tipping point where enough people are saying NO MORE that something may finally change for the better.

And the children are leading us, which seems totally appropriate.

Victims of gun violence, students and American families march in Washington, D.C. and communities around the country in a demonstration to end mass shootings in schools.

Emma has power. She just silenced a few million people. Damn…she’s going to hold her silence for 6:40 or so, the length of the Stoneman Douglas shootings.

I am wet in the eyes. I think that may have been one of the most powerful protest moments ever.

I don’t say that lightly.

And it holds to a great artists axiom. Keep it simple. There is power in simple.

Thank you Emma.

Future President of the United States right there - she’s already more qualified than the one we’ve got… she just has to meet the age requirements.

an observation:

the high school students themselves are too young for probably most elected offices

look at the pictures - they are about to become a huge and powerful voting bloc

they cant be elected right now
they can and will work for those people they back.
i predict a lot of them will get right into politics behind the scenes
there’s a lot of influence and connections in those pictures

And meanwhile, the moron in the White House is off golfing and Congress is on vacation. Quite a stark contrast and a study in bravery vs. cowardice. I wanted to be there today, but cannot. I’ve decided to become more active since the person I am married to bought one of these horrible weapons behind my back. I’m going to focus on my community, doing kind things for others and doing what I can do, however small, to demand this madness end. Enough. Beyond Enough.

I want them to do what they want to do, no pressure. These students are on the right paths. There are all kinds of leaders on that stage.

Following their lives from now on is going to make one great future documentary.

I just hope the pressure doesn’t become too much. If Emma wants to be a fashion designer or a teacher or a scientist, she has my support, even if she never runs for office or does one more overtly political thing again in her life. All of these young people are astounding, I cannot imagine myself at that age having my shit together to that degree. Hell, I still don’t , lol. She’s not even my kid and I’m proud of her, I’m proud of all of them. They are not victims, not even close. I have to love that.

Brian Williams just did a nice sum up on Emma. He called her (as close as I can remember) “a speaker with the power of only a few of our presidents, past and present…she spoke with a power and authority missing in many of the politicians in this town.”

Heh, just saw a sign in the crowd “Impeach Pence.”

Now to get something done yet today…wow, wow, wow!

She’s willfully ignorant and is trying to pull the same schtick that right wingers pull with all the athletes who took a knee against police brutality and discrimination.

The protests aren’t about the NRA. They’re looking to end gun violence.

They want something done that will stop gun violence, not just in schools, but all over society, because there’s no other developed country on the planet that has gun violence and gun death rates like we have in the US.

I tweeted a reply about that yesterday. We left them a world where they have to fix it. As much as I want her to have a normal life, it won’t be for a while. But, we also have to resist pushing them away from something they have to do because WE want them to be normal.

re: #32 Skip Intro

You know, recent events in my life have shown me something I never really thought about with all this “thoughts and prayers” nonsense. And I am NOT picking on Christians here, but I just received all kinds of “thoughts and prayers” for my husband and our family. It didn’t do a fucking thing. Nothing. Well, almost nothing. It made the person doing the offering feel like that’s all they needed to do. It takes literally zero effort. It’s selfish, in about the worst way imaginable. It is perhaps the most passive thing you could do and it is exactly the same as doing nothing. So the next time someone comes at me with that BULLSHIT, I’m going to respond with “oh, so you’re not going to do a fucking thing then. Good to know.” I’d rather there be silence then empty platitudes. I felt worse after this being offered, not better. It enhanced my loneliness, not make me feel all warm and fuzzy.

I’ve all out of fucks to give.

But see, that’s totally un-American. So the only way to counteract that is with another gun. Gun is the only safety in this country, after all. Gun is the only thing that can ever protect you.

Somehow, I get the feeling that all of the MSD HS students who have been so instrumental in inspiring and organizing this amazing protest would be only too happy to trade in their newfound public exposure and recognition in order to get the lives of their slain classmates back.

And I won’t be surprised if one, any, or all of them make this same point to that “NRA host” assclown in public/on air quite soon….

Spite is all-powerful in this country, though. Spite makes you strong, and hating the right people is the ultimate path to power and influence in this country. People hear spite, and see strength. That’s the depressing truth.

Exhibit A: The GOP.

Exhibit B: The NRA.

Exactly. Though at this point, I feel like #MarchForOurLives has one advantage the Women’s March* didn’t - a single, powerful, overriding focus on one issue. It’s much easier to translate that kind of thing into a specific, memorable Call to Action.

*The Women’s March, to me, seemed like more of a “hey, we’re still here” type of protest, and the only CTA I can readily associate with it is, more women should vote and run for office. That’s no small thing, but I still feel like mass protest movements are most effective when they demand a few specific and significant policy outcomes.

Sympathy for white Austin bomber stirs debate about race

When a law enforcement official described a cellphone recording left by the Austin serial bomber as “the outcry of a very challenged young man,” the remark caused an outcry of its own.

Because the bomber was white, some people almost immediately questioned whether the same level of compassion would have been afforded a person of color.

“Here you have a case of a young white male who killed and injured people of color, and we’re culturally more concerned about his story, about his life, about what led him to take these lives,” said David Leonard, professor in the department of critical culture, gender and race studies at Washington State University. “It’s a striking reminder of a racial empathy gap that persists.”

There have been people registering voters at every march I’ve been to in Houston. They show up at concerts, live podcasts, any place where people gather, they show up. We had 3 teenagers with us today that were bummed they couldn’t register yet. They have to wait until 6 months before their 18th birthdays. They can’t wait.

What’s particularly funny about this is that this protester knows more about the legislative process than Trump does.

She also knows that the GOP/NRA have done more to block any and all gun control than anything else out there. Thoughts and prayers are not a substitute for action, no matter how much the GOP tries to pull that nonsense.

The NRA is now left with attacking school shooting victims and survivors who are taking up protesting against gun violence because they have nothing else. They don’t have solutions. They only have tactics to spur more gun sales.

That’s not a solution. It’s a recipe for more gun deaths.

No, Marco, and other lying ammosexuals, the vast majority are not marching for a “gun ban” but for some reasonable regulations that will make it harder for psychopaths to get semi-automatic weapons.
Have you noticed that no school shooter has used a class 3 registered machine gun, even though they are ideal for the purpose and there are many thousands of them out there? Why is that?

I would prefer a total ban on AR-15s and similar weapons with a buyback. I will settle for a buyback or registration and a large tax, insurance, and restrictions on where those guns can be carried.

Any semi-automatic weapon and I’m on board. I like target shooting, but I’ll settle for single-shot pistols and rifles if it means I don’t have to suffer the horror of another mass shooting.

Given the experience with machine guns, it might be enough to put semi-autos on the class 3 schedule. NRA nuts will go apeshit at the very suggestion though, since licensing and registration could lead to confiscation by the evil authorities, leaving them helpless against the “others.” It is an article of faith that this is ultimate objective of gun grabbing liberals.

re: #100 Belafon

I saw a guy at Braum’s who had a shirt with an AR-15 and the word ‘Wolverines’ on it, and he looked like the kind of guy who thinks that is a successful protest against these marches.

These are the people who think that a mass shooting that kills 10 instead of 11 is somehow a sign that having more guns would reduce gun violence.

These are the people who think that the Wolverines won in Red Dawn. They got wiped out. They had guns, they got their hands on military grade weapons, and got wiped out.

Gun-fuckers seem to be of the mindset that someday, somehow, with a sufficient density of “good guys with guns”, a “bad guy with a gun” will be recognized before he is able to fire, thus preventing the crime from occurring in the first place. How this mind-reading is to be accomplished is yet to be explained, however.

Given the experience with machine guns, it might be enough to put semi-autos on the class 3 schedule. NRA nuts will go apeshit at the very suggestion though, since licensing and registration could lead to confiscation by the evil authorities, leaving them helpless against the “others.” It is an article of faith that this is ultimate objective of gun grabbing liberals. For the rest of us, there is no reason for us to allow batshit conspiracy theories, originated in racist anxiety, to control legislation and endanger law abiding Americans.

Yep, it’s time to stop worrying about what they might do. It’s not like it’ll be any worse, just more of the same.

I would prefer a total ban on AR-15s and similar weapons with a buyback. I will settle for a buyback or registration and a large tax, insurance, and restrictions on where those guns can be carried.

The second part essentially is class 3. A complete ban on semi-autos, besides being much harder to pass, would leave us in the anomalous position of allowing outright machine guns, but banning semi-autos.

While there were marches in towns large and small across my state, outside Omaha and Lincoln the media is not covering it.

They are trying to memory-hole the whole thing. Searching as best I can, no media outlet (newspaper, radio, television) covered any of it, outside of the outlets in Omaha and Lincoln.

For the rest of the state, if you don’t have Internet service you likely don’t even know it’s happening.

The Unicameral is in session right now, arguing over defunding proper payment to any medical group that refers a woman for an abortion. That was a line inserted in the state budget by Gov. Ricketts. Democrats are filibustering the budget (they already did the same the first time around), arguing that should be a separate bill, not part of the budget.

Gov. Ricketts’s argument is the state “promotes a culture of life” (that’s why this is an open-carry state I guess) and that should be reflected in the budget.

That is some seriously advanced stupidity. It’s a measure of their stupidity that these inbreds think they are fooling anyone but other yokels with this fake scandal mongering. There is no parking in downtown DC, let alone for thousands of people. Of course the organizers use buses to take people from the available parking areas, which are in Virginia and Maryland, to the demonstration site, and it is no secret that generous supporters pay for this.

They chose to become a radical organization and a lobby shop for gun and ammo manufacturers. Oh well. Buh-bye.

True, the NRA has been caught flat-footed (finally, for once!) on the wrong side of the PR of the “gun issue”: being owned - in public media - by a bunch of high-school kids whose message inspired a couple of million people to come out and march nationwide can’t have done their image too much good. Especially as their themes for “counterattacks” are finally losing their efficacy (one sincerely hopes). Outside of insults, name-calling, and wacky conspiracy-theory-mongering on social media and in the “press” (a la Jack Posobiec’s gibberings above), their main avenue of riposte boils down, eventually, to threats of violence in defense of their “rights”. Threats which so far, neither the NRA or even the more fervent gunhumpers seem willing to carry through on. Outside of nasty Tweets, of course….

I think what must be giving Wayne LaPierre and creatures the real willies, though, is the universal subtext of the MFOL people: that they are also voters, and will likely vent their outrage at the ballot box. The NRA’s main line of “defense” is, and has been for decades, the vast amounts of money and advertising they are willing to throw at sympathetic politicians (and just as importantly, against those deemed unsympathetic); if that line fails in November, well, good: as in “good riddance”…

Too bad his church organisations don’t call out the ones which promote this. There is nothing preventing the Catholic Church, the United Methodist Church, the Episcopal Church, &c from directly calling out the Southern Baptist Convention, Pentecostal churches, &c.

LGBT Pride Parade Held in City That Initially Denied Permit

STARKVILLE, Miss. (AP) — Thousands of people have marched peacefully in the first-ever gay pride parade in a Mississippi city where officials had tried to block the event.

It happened Saturday in Starkville, weeks after the city council initially denied a parade permit. The council later reversed its decision.

Mayor Lynn Spruill tells The Associated Press about 2,500 people marched, without incident.

Video on the Starkville Daily News website showed people with rainbow balloons. Some roller skated. Several walked with their dogs behind a sign saying, “Unleash Pride.”

The video showed a protester with a sign calling homosexuality an “abomination.”

I doubt many people are ready to tear down the entire system and, more importantly, be ready to put together a system from the wreckage while fending off the vultures. The chance to make change is to win elections…and if you can’t do that, you’re not ready to make changes.

re: #259 Barefoot Grin

Killer Mike, Bernie’s point man to the black community, made no bones about his gun collection and the need for law-abiding African Americans to arm themselves. It’s hard to argue with that, given the disproportionate violence* they face (though as a non-gun person, I’d still argue with it). But apparently he’s hooked up with the NRA.

Was Bernie even out and about today in support of the marches?

Or was he enjoying his vacation?

I would also note the message of peace in the New Testament is contradicted by, you guessed it, the New Testament.

KJV:

But those mine enemies, which would not that I should reign over them, bring hither, and slay them before me. (Luke 19:27)

Slay is pretty clear. That’s what drives Christian terrorists in this country.

That’s part of a parable, not a directive by Christ for faithful to kill nonbelievers.

I grow confident that this movement will produce enough momentum to get some sort of gun control reform passed.

After which there will be a mass shooting and detractors will point out that it did not help or even insist that the reforms enabled the shooter somehow.

Because America.

Cause it’s gotta happen instantly and 100%

There will be less deaths. There will never be zero

re: #300 Weaselone

That’s part of a parable, not a directive by Christ for faithful to kill nonbelievers.

I am aware of that. It is not my problem as an atheist to make Christianity clean its own house.

Not one mainstream Protestant church body or the Catholic Church has called out the other church bodies. Individuals, sure.

But not one church body. Not one.

I guarantee you that every single voter in the Lutheran Church across the street from my house pulled the lever for Donald Trump. He is their idea of a Christian leader, not Hillary Clinton.

In the next town over to my east, I know every single person in the Catholic Church and the United Methodist Church there pulled the lever for Donald Trump. As a matter of fact, in that township every last person who voted did. Clinton/Johnson/Stein together pulled zero votes. He was their Christian leader.

When I wrote the village clerk in the town to the south expressing concern about an explicit Easter message on town-owned signs, I got an E-mail back asking who the hell are you to tell us how to run our town? (I simply wrote, in my official capacity as a village trustee here, that such messages run afoul of the I Amendment Establishment Clause and could draw trouble for the village.)

It was Christians who stepped over me when I was homeless. It was an atheist who took me in, fed me, sheltered me, and loves me now.

Yes. We have discussed this before. Jesus was a Rabbi and a very standard rabbinical teaching technique is hyperbole then and now. Sorry it doesn’t fit your bias but that’s reality.

And we have discussed this before as well: That it doesn’t matter what Jesus allegedly said, it matters what Christians do in his name.

When I see a single national church body call out those bodies that promote hate or bigotry, I will applaud that church body.

I’m not holding my breath.

I get what he’s saying.

I see kids at the marches speaking defiantly against “adults” and “older generations,” then thanking their teachers in tears and hugging their moms. It’s not “adults” they’re pissed at. They’re mad at the adults that weren’t there for them and are willing to throw away their lives for money and power. They’re mad at Trump and Republicans and what is happening in our country right now. They’re not mad at their moms.

Look, we trained them for this. We taught them to stand up and shout and march and vote. We can stand next to them or behind them but we sure as hell don’t get to stand in front of them and tell them where to go.

Yup. They are not mad at “adults,” they are mad at adults who grasp money and power over their own lives.

The NRA can get back to its original purpose, and the GOP can learn to yield, or they will be swept away. Not today, maybe not tomorrow, but they will.

re: #142 Cheechako

“We’re looking at the future of our Country….and it looks damn good!”

I’m very proud of our kids. I’m a retired high school social studies teacher, and some of the things I always emphasized to my students were to think critically, do your own research on an issue and/or matter, and to never let others do your thinking for you, along with knowing things is cool. After I read a tweet from Tomi Lahren claiming that schools no longer teach students about the Constitution, I just couldn’t let it go, so I sent a tweet to her informing her that all of my students had to learn all of the amendments to the Constitution, and I asked her not to talk about things she knows nothing about. She’s never taught high school social studies but feels she knows 100% what is taught in those classes, and she’s wrong in using her huge media platform on Twitter to misinform her followers. Someone who has actually taught the information in the Constitution to high school students needed to respond to her, and today, I was that person.
