Co-Founder of ‘March For Our Lives’ Leaves Group, The Reason He Left Shows Hope for Growth

Published

on

Cameron Kasky, one of the founders of “March For Our Lives,” the group that sprung up out of the Parkland, Florida school shooting earlier this year, has officially quit the group, stating that he is now ready to listen to both sides of the gun rights issue.

Perhaps there’s hope for the future generation after all. The one thing both sides need a bit more of is calm, rational discussion. It’s sort of in short supply these days.

Here’s some of his interview with Fox News Radio:

On going after Senator Rubio at the town hall: I’m very regretful of a lot of the mistakes that I’ve made along the way. One of the things I never really did was watch myself. If I was on a screen I kind of tried to run away from it. I’m not entirely sure why. But, looking back on that it’s like you said, you touched off on this very well in the intro, I’m not going to kick myself for it because I’m 17. Despite the fact that I thought I did at the time, I don’t know everything. But, I look back on that and I say, you know what, there were people who had just been buried and when you’re looking at somebody that you find might in some way have been complicit in this murderer obtaining the weapon it’s hard not to say something like that. But, I went into that wanting less conversation and more to embarrass Rubio and that was my biggest flaw. (3:00)

On if he would redo his question to Rubio: Certainly, and I even name dropped the murder, which at the time I never really thought about, but looking back it ticks me off so much when people do that because then you’re getting that person’s name out there and making them a celebrity. I mean that’s one of the worst things you see come out of these horrific mass murders is name recognition. These people are very often crying out for some sort of attention and power and entitlement and then you’re making them a household name. I feel in some ways responsible for that. (5:13)

On his plans going forward: This summer when March For Our Lives went on the summer tour that we embarked on I met that person in Texas whose got that semi-automatic weapon because that’s how they like to protect their family. I met the 50 some odd percent of woman who are pro-life, even though I thought it was preposterous that a woman could be pro-life and not pro-choice at the time. I learned that a lot of our issues politically come from a lack of understanding of other perspectives and also the fact that so often young conservatives and young liberals will go into debate, like I said earlier, trying to beat the other one as oppose to come to an agreement…I’m working on some efforts to encourage bipartisanship or at least discussion that is productive and help a lot of people avoid the mistakes that I made. (6:33)

On his current relationship with March for Our Lives: I left the March. I’m off the board. I left the organization and if I thought that my friends and the people I worked with couldn’t do it without me I would not have done that, but alas all of our efforts looking forward looked like they didn’t really need my involvement and while I could have helped it wasn’t crucial. You know what I thought in some of the platforms that I have for only the worst reasons is something I really believe in, because I’m a Spider man fan, and I can tell you with great platform comes great responsibility. I thought it was my responsibility to take all the things I was kicking myself for and to encourage others to avoid it. (8:12)

Kasky later went on to plug his podcast, “Cameron Knows Nothing,” stating that during this whole ordeal the message presented by the leftist media surrounding the survivors of the Parkland shooting was that they were all “experts.” He said that while he has some intelligent friends, he’s not an “expert” in anything, despite what the media painted him up to be.

This kid is showing remarkable maturity for someone his age, which is proof positive that once the wool is pulled back from their eyes, a lot of young people can make solid decisions about what they think and how to engage with important issues.

Best of luck to the young man.

Dem Rep. Implies National Guard Members Who Voted Trump May Target Libs At Inauguration

What a horrible thing to say!

We’re just over two weeks into the new year and we already have a quote that may hold up as the most ridiculous of 2021. Remember, this guy was elected to office. What does that say about the people who voted for him? It’s because of people like Goofy McGoofball in the clip below that America has become such a liberal cesspool. During a Monday appearance on CNN, McGoofball said, “You know I was thinking, the Guard is 90 some-odd percent male. Only about 20 percent of white males voted for Biden. You’ve got to figure that in the Guard, which is predominantly more conservative…there are probably not more than 25 percent of the people that are there protecting us that voted for Biden. The other 75 percent are in the class that would be in the large class of folks who might want to do something. There were military people and police who took oaths to defend the Constitution, who didn’t do it and were in the insurrection. So it does concern me.” WATCH: https://twitter.com/tomselliott/status/1351196676036435972?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1351196676036435972%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fvideo-democrat-argues-national-guard-members-who-voted-for-trump-may-be-a-threat-to-bidens-safety%2F From The Daily Wire: Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (CA) added to the already deep divide in our nation during a online meeting with constituents in San Francisco on Saturday, claiming the Trump supporters who breached the Capitol on Wednesday chose their “whiteness over democracy.” Pelosi said, “When that assault was taking place on the Capitol, 3,865 people in our country died of the coronavirus, many of them people of color because of the injustice of it all. The next day, on Thursday, 4,000 people died of the coronavirus. Why? Because decisions were made at the highest level, months before in the Oval Office, of denial, distortion, delay, calling it a ‘hoax.’” She added, “I thought it was going to be an epiphany for…

WATCH: Melania Trump Delivers Powerful & Moving Farewell Message As First Lady

Gorgeous, as always!

She wasn’t unbearable like Hillary Clinton. She wasn’t as polarizing as Michelle Obama. But because she is married to Donald Trump, Melania Trump is the worst first lady in American history. That’s how the mainstream media will remember the woman who speaks five languages fluently; the former model whose mere presence is a sight for sore eyes. FLOTUS’s farewell message is one that should be replayed for decades to come. From New York Post: First lady Melania Trump on Monday released a nearly seven-minute farewell message urging Americans to choose “love over hatred” and “peace over violence.” The video filmed at the White House was posted to Twitter fewer than 48 hours before President Trump leaves office Wednesday at noon. “As Donald and I conclude our time in the White House, I think of all the people I have taken home in my heart and their incredible stories of love, patriotism and devotion,” she said.
