Michael Bloomberg pledged $50 million to his new Everytown for Gun Control organization.
What has that bought?
Ineptitude, incompetence, and one do-nothing, bench warming Congressman by the name of Robin Kelly.
And a Facebook page that seems to be the center of their efforts. We seldom visit their Facebook page, but a post by Miguel at Gun Free Zone was too juicy to pass up.
First, about Facebook: Assuming you’re even (still) on Facebook, fewer and fewer young people are participating on what used to be “the” social media hangout for those 30 and under. Like bell-bottom jean, parachute pants and Benetton stores, the fad of Facebook has run its course. Translation: Fewer and fewer people see Everytown’s Facebook posts.
Given the shrill nature of so many of their Facebook entries, we suspect they are resorting to hyperbole and make-believe in an effort to sensationalize their content and reach more people within their little echo chamber.
What sort of sensationalism are they employing? Here’s an example from a few hours ago. (No, we’re not including a link as we’re not driving thousands of unique visitors to their Facebook page.)
Shoot first culture?
They’re using this man to try to convince everyday Americans to oppose their own right to self-defense from America’s criminal class?
Frankly, it’s young, drug using thugs just like Tray Tray Martin who have inspired millions of Americans to go out and buy one or more firearms to defend their homes and families from violent attack.
What else is on the Everytown Facebook page?
Shilling for more “cause” bracelets.
If I saw someone walking around with this on their wrist, I’d probably lump them into the same pigeon hole I’d put someone with 32 bumper stickers on the back of their 20-year-old Volvo.
