Stephen Colbert gets serious in the wake of the Parkland, Florida, school massacre. He's right. Rarely have I been so disgusted, watching adults abuse these teen victims of a mass murderer. Questioning their motives, calling them actors, assuming they cannot think for themselves is revolting. I'm glad politicians offing the empty headed "thoughts and prayers" (by the way, it isn't true prayer unless it leads to direct action so stop saying it NRA purchased pols) are being exposed for how much NRA blood money they have received. I wish the students from Parkland who have arrived in Tallahassee all the best as they face these purchased NRA mouthpieces in politics. They deserve far better than to have an assault weapons ban HEARING rejected by Florida's pols as the students were on the road. This level of disrespect is disgusting. It is also the knee jerk reaction of pols who have been in office far too long.
Thanks for the clarity Stephen. Stay strong, students of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.
People across the nation stand with you.
