Gun advocate gives graduation speech to empty chairs

Recommended Posts

A former NRA president and gun rights advocate both unknowingly delivered commencement speeches at a fake high school graduation that represented thousands of children who died from gun violence before they could graduate alongside the class of 2021.

In two videos shared on Wednesday, former NRA President David Keene and author and gun rights activist John Lott are seen delivering commencement speeches to a field of empty white chairs. 

 

The speeches were organized by the group Change the Ref, which was founded by Manuel and Patricia Oliver, whose son was killed in the 2018 shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla. 

The 3,044 chairs represent the students who did not graduate with the high school class of 2021 because they were killed by gun violence, according to a statement obtained by The Hill.

and then

Why stop there?  Hell, have them speak at Soldier's Field and they can reach thousands of empty seats that represent the slaughter that goes on there, 24/7/365 without a single Democrat complaining or explaining.  :tu:

I don't think 3,044 students died that were going to graduate in 2021.

I have to agree. Reminds me of one of those cheesy, smarmy TRUTH ads. Just like those, whoever set it up probably feels like they are doing something important but in reality nobody gives a **** and just makes fun of them. The message, however genuine, is lost to the sheer overreaching lameness of it all.
