From calling a Parkland survivor “another useful idiot” to peddling outrageous conspiracy theories to suggesting the Parkland students may be actors, @NRA commentators have repeatedly attacked and disparaged the teenagers who survived the mass shooting in Parkland. #LieOfTheYear
.@NRA board member Ted Nugent said Parkland activists “have no soul” and are “mushy brained children.” On the eve of the March for Our Lives rallies, the NRA’s Colion Noir said, “No one would know your names” if a student gunman hadn’t killed three staff members and 14 students.
In a year in which America experienced horrific shootings, Politifact is giving its “Lie of the Year” award to “the lies against the Parkland students in the wake of unspeakable tragedy.” There’s no denying that the @NRA played a leading role attacking the Parkland survivors.
