The Selfie March

The Selfie March

By Judie Brown

Was the recent March for Our Lives really about teens loving, caring, and mourning other teens, or was it something completely different?

The March for Our Lives was a cleverly orchestrated activity designed by left wing political types to give the appearance of concerned high school students protesting because they are the “mass shooting” generation.

While we feel deep sadness and angst for those left behind to mourn, we detest the elite for using these kids for their own political agendas. Want proof? Read on.

If you look beneath the hype and the propaganda, this event was not primarily attended by high school students at all, at least not according to Professor Dana R. Fisher. Her findings are rather interesting:

  • Only about 10 percent of those in attendance at the Washington, D.C. March were under 18.
  • Twenty-seven percent of attendees had never protested before.
  • “Only 12 percent of the people who were new to protesting reported that they were motivated to join the march because of the gun-control issue.”

Behind the scenes, there were even more curious antics going on that were never reported by the mainstream biased press.

The Washington Free Beacon reported in February that Planned Parenthood, operators of the nation’s largest abortion chain, had stepped in after the Parkland, Florida, high school mass shooting and was “‘teaching and hosting trainings’ for young activists around the United States ‘to keep momentum going so they don’t get burned out.’”

Pro-abortion Democratic Representative Debbie Wasserman Schultz (FL) said she has been speaking with students from the high school and emphasized the importance of communication strategies.

And then there’s Deena Katz, who was the force behind the Washington, D.C. Women’s March and became the president of the March for Our Lives so-called student protests. Her role should come as no surprise to anyone who considers the fact that abortion honchos will work any angle they can to promote the idea that human rights start with “me,” with “myself.” Period! Such indoctrination eliminates the possibility that the lives of others are more important and deserve our total self-sacrifice.

The preborn child falls into that category. That is why I am convinced that Katz did nothing more than orchestrate another avenue for propagandizing the flawed “my body, my choice” argument. Continuing to poison the minds of the young who are sincere but easily misled seems to be a passion of those who advocate abortion, contraception, and other life-diminishing actions.

But in the process of misrepresenting actual attendance numbers, the ages of those who did attend, and what their real concerns may or may not have been, something even greater has been forgotten. And that is the acts of violence themselves.

Compare these numbers. Approximately 17,000 children and teens are shot each year in the United States. Of that number, 3,400 die from those wounds. Approximately 1.1 million preborn babies die each year in the United States—a staggering number of senseless killings committed by medical personnel.

So, while the tragedy of gun violence absolutely must be addressed, it occurs to us that the cause of such violent behavior—including our national moral blindness when it comes to aborting our future—cannot be ignored.

Just think about this. Every single one of those high school students who did participate in a Selfie March is a member of a generation that has lost more than a third of its members to inhumane killing. Some have lost siblings, some have lost cousins, but all have lost the opportunity to experience solidarity with their fellow teens.

That is why those who have misrepresented these young people and their passion should be ashamed.

The March for OUR Lives suggests ego and self-absorption. What it does not suggest is what is so desperately needed: brotherly love, mercy, and justice for all—born and preborn.
