Obama: Parkland students 'are shaking us out of our complacency'
CNN ^ | April 19, 2018 | By Jennifer Hansler

Former President Barack Obama has again lauded the students of Parkland, Florida, writing that they "are shaking us out of our complacency."

"America's response to mass shootings has long followed a predictable pattern," the 44th president wrote in an entry published Thursday in Time Magazine's "100 Most Influential People" list. "This time, something different is happening. This time, our children are calling us to account."

"Seared by memories of seeing their friends murdered at a place they believed to be safe, these young leaders don't intimidate easily," Obama wrote of the students.

"The Parkland, Fla., students don't have the kind of lobbyists or big budgets for attack ads that their opponents do. Most of them can't even vote yet," Obama noted. "But they have the power so often inherent in youth: to see the world anew; to reject the old constraints, outdated conventions and cowardice too often dressed up as wisdom. The power to insist that America can be better."

Kids were organized by 44’s allies, after a massacre enabled in part by 44’s school district rules.

***WARNING***

CNN (Counterfeit News Network) – 1st Place in Trump's 2017 First Annual Fake News Winners AKA Biggest Liars of the Lying Leftist Media with FOUR entries in the top ten

Don’t believe these Lying Leftist Media outlets that proved themselves during the 2016 campaign to be operatives of the DNC and intentional liars. They are presumed to be lying and we should presume what they publish is a lie. The presumption can only be rebutted with the outlet providing clear and convincing evidence they are not lying.

Why not post the TRUTH about the lies? You don't have to use the liar as the source to post a headline that alerts readers to a published lie. Use yourself as the source or a reasonably reliable source that addresses what the Lying Leftist source is saying. That way you have a headline and a source that your readers can reasonably rely on and they go away more informed about the lie AND the truth.

If this story is true and has some redeeming value, at least get the story from a reasonably reliable source, not from a known Lying Leftist operative posing as a “news” organization. You’ve done the Patriotic Right a service. Much better than the mindless repetition of lying sources and their lying headlines.

If we’re told a lie, don’t repeat it. Neutralize the lie by speaking the truth. Lies aren’t defeated by repeating the lie. Lies are defeated by repeating the truth. We should have our eyes on the prize - in this case, politically, what it takes to recover our Free Constitutional Republic. That should be what we major on and focus on.

IMO, if a poster can't be bothered to do that, then they shouldn't post. If they're going to be bothered to post, do it right. We're on a mission here.

You said it, Obozo. Hence the spike in gun sales and NRA memberships.

"The Parkland, Fla., students don't have the kind of lobbyists or big budgets for attack ads that their opponents do..." Obama noted.

It's nice to know he hasn't lost his talent for telling outrageous lies.

Obama: Parkland students 'are shaking us out of our complacency'

Obviously, the "us" he's referring to is a separate set of people from the "us" who own firearms and ammunition.

FU.

This astroturfed, bought and paid-for fake campaign will fall just like everything else you’ve done.

I will resist the parklandpunks and the brownshirts.

Nice. How many times were school officials and law enforcement notified that this kid was a threat? A dozen? More?

About how many other mass events were we subsequently informed that, “Yeah, this person was on our watch list”?

Institute per-student per-year refundable tax credits sufficient to cover tuition/fees/books at high-security high-quality private schools so every parent can send their daughters and sons to high-security high-quality private schools.
