March For Our Lives Co-Founder Leaves the Movement
Since February, you have heard a lot about the kids of Parkland, FL. The most notable of them have used every platform they can find to blame adults, politicians and the NRA for the tragedy they suffered.
Very few placed the blame solely on the killer. Every effort to try and correct these children with facts and reason has been stifled by the extremist zombies on the left. They view any attack on logic as an attack on the kids themselves, and thus they have been sheltered from critically reviewing their positions.
Well, today you’re going to see that the best efforts of the left are failing — at least in part. It’s time to learn about Cameron Kasky.
The Tale of Cameron Kasky
Some of you might recognize this name. Others won’t. It seems he was overshadowed by his peers. Nevertheless, Kasky was 17 when the infamous shooting took place at Marjory Stoneman Douglas high school in Florida this past winter. He survived the incident and opened his house to fellow students while they waited for news from authorities.
It was the very same day of the shooting that they decided to take action and try to prevent any future school shootings from happening. They began with the #neveragain social media campaign.
It didn’t take long for their efforts to get traction, and it eventually evolved into March for Our Lives. Cameron Kasky was one of the original founders of that movement. It was through those efforts that he made his name reasonably well known. He was possibly the most vocal and least reasonable critic of Marco Rubio when he had a CNN town hall to discuss the shooting.
He was also the primary source of the notion that the NRA was responsible for the shooting. He pushed for legislation to go after any politician who had received any amount of support from the group.
At this point, you’re at least rolling your eyes. You might be gripping something tightly. Hang in there. Things are about to get interesting.
A Changing View
This past summer, March for Our Lives toured the nation. During that tour, Kasky was exposed to a large number of views he didn’t understand. First, he was floored to meet women who were pro-life. He said in an interview later that he just assumed all women were pro-choice because of the “don’t legislate my body” argument.
What really left him speechless was meeting gun rights advocates who had actually used their firearms in self-defense. He met a man who had saved his family by using an AR-15. He then met a hero who stopped a mass shooting with the same weapon.
Being exposed to real people and the real world, Kasky was forced to challenge the indoctrination that was forced upon him in school. He began to realize that the March for Our Lives was built with good intentions but might not be the salvation for this country he originally hoped.
A Revealing Interview
Last week, Kasky went on Fox News Radio to discuss these revelations. During the interview, he announced that he would no longer be a part of March for Our Lives. He stated that he was confident the organization would be fine without him and that he wanted to work on other things. He also explained some of his biggest regrets over the past several months.
Chief among those regrets was how he handled the CNN town hall. He now says that a civil, productive discussion with Rubio would have done everyone more good than just trying to brand him as evil and shout him down. While Kasky didn’t say as much, this language sounds like someone who has taken the red pill and come back for seconds.
Also in the interview, Kasky revealed his new plans. He’s starting a podcast titled “Cameron Knows Nothing.” It’s intended to help others learn from his mistakes and work towards better civility in politics and contentious discussions. He freely admitted that he should never have been propped up as an expert on school shootings, and he fully regrets misusing that position. Now, he is dedicating his efforts to correcting that course for himself and anyone who listens to his podcast.
The gun grabbers from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School have been a source of great frustration for anyone who believes in the 2nd Amendment. Liberals trying to defend them from actual debate and discourse has been even more frustrating. Despite their youth and naivety, it seems that not all hope is lost. If one of the founding members of March for Our Lives can learn to value alternative views, then maybe this country can recover from liberalism as a whole. It’s not an easy journey, but it seems that staying dedicated to truth and rationality can pay off in the end.
