Activists Running Out of Students

Activists Running Out of Students March 31, 2015

This is hilarious:

“Of the approximately 3,000 students at the four Catholic High Schools involved, there were only about 35 students at the event—CBS was forced to pad their coverage with video of students at a similar demonstration that took place on Ash Wednesday. At least a third of those in attendance at the event were not students, but activist adults.”

"Fox bad.What is the obsession here? Fox gets LESS THAN 1% of the American population ..."

    Don’t laugh. The power of coercion an media propaganda works exceptionally well with young adults. They’ll probably have a more successful protest in the coming weeks after they organise. They’ve been masters of this, have a bottomless pit of cash, and the ignorant sheep/masses on their side.

    And yet, I’d still bet cold cash that these 35 protesters got for more media coverage than the many thousands at the March for Life.

    This is not the first time I’ve seen this. In the limited times I’ve been able to participate in March for Life, the same thing happens – news cameras facing away from a crowd of hundreds or thousands, to face a line of pro-abortion counterprotestors, and then panning just far enough to catch scattered patches of pro-life demonstrators on the edge of the crowd without hinting at the actual size of the crowd.

    The news editors are also very careful about which clips they actually play on the evening news. I rather doubt it is as much to protect the children watching from the profanity, insults, taunts, and sometimes even threats, as it is to protect the adult viewers from recognizing which side actually hates women, who at these protests usually seem to make up about 70% of the people those insults and threats are directed at.

    Kids typically have better things to do than to be unpaid conscripts for a former Chevron guy. In other news, the Holy Father is a Catholic.
