WATCH: Protest organizer bullied shooter?

posted by Preston Scott -

Strangely, only the American Spectator is covering this irony. One of the faces of Parkland, Emma Gonzalez, admitted at the recent protest in Washington, D.C. that she had been one of many who bullied the shooter.

Interesting to me, though not surprising, is 1) the alleged fact-checking website Snopes said she never said what she is recorded saying below; 2) the mainstream media has totally turned its attention away from this important point - the Parkland shooter was bullied for years. Years. 

It does not excuse his actions. It does, however, help explain them. 

In this eighteen second rant from prepared remarks (which is also important because this was not some emotional deviation from her script; no, this was a planned comment) she makes it abundantly clear you have no right to judge her (or others') decision to bully...err, "ostracize" ... the shooter. You did not know him. She did. 

She feels justified. She is a budding illiberal, no doubt. Isn't that the message of the anti-bullying campaign? "Don't bully, unless they deserve it!"
