A school massacre survivor just gave a Republican the ass kicking he deserves for attacking her

- Februari 20, 2018

How low can they go? Republicans, that is, in the nasty debate over gun control in the wake of the Parkland, FL school shooting. The bar has just dropped after an aide to State Rep. Shawn Harrison publicized a conspiracy theory claiming that the student survivors speaking out on TV are, in fact, actors. That aide has since been put on leave.

One Parkland student survivor, Jaclyn Corin, fired back on twitter.

The Tampa Bay Times Washington bureau chief Alex Leary tweeted exactly what the Representatives aide claimed in an email.

Rep. Shawn Harrison himself tweeted shortly after in response to the claim, seeking to distance himself from his aide’s paranoid, conspiratorial claim.

Harrison’s aide was referring to Parkland students Emma Gonzalez and David Hogg. The two well-spoken high schoolers have become the faces of the anti-gun movement in the wake of the Valentine’s Day massacre in which 17 students and high school faculty were killed.

Nikolas Cruz opened fire at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School using an AR-15 machine gun.

Surviving students boarded buses to Tallahassee today to witness a vote in the State Legislature on whether or not to take up the gun control debate. The State House voted it down.

Parkland students are mobilizing a movement, planning a march on Washington and school walk out on March 24 and speaking out publicly in support of common sense gun control.

Conspiracy theorists on the right have been amplifying the claim that student survivors speaking out have been coached by Democrats or gun control advocates. Cooler heads are hoping to prevail and shut down those outrageous claims.
