Efforts to turn a vigil for hero Kendrick Castillo into a gun control rally met with pushback from students:
The tone changed during the second vigil at Highlands Ranch High School, as STEM School Highlands Ranch students burst into a spontaneous demonstration, protesting politics and the media.
The protest, in the form of a walkout with chants, happened after Sen. Michael Bennet, a Democratic presidential hopeful, and Congressman Jason Crow, spoke to the crowd.
Students, several hundred strong, chanted “Mental health” and complained about the media in derogatory terms.
The protest derailed the organized vigil, although students eventually went back into the gym and spoke as part of an open-microphone gathering, where they continued to vent. The event ended at about 9 p.m.
Earlier, another vigil was held in the wake of Tuesday’s shooting — the fourth school shooting in Colorado since the Columbine High School massacre 20 years ago.
Go here to read the rest. Bravo. Something is beginning to rise in this nation. The Left has overplayed its hand. Its constant efforts to politicize everything, including the death of a young hero, is increasingly disgusting decent people. Keep your eye on this.
