From calling a Parkland shooting survivor “another useful idiot” to peddling outrageous conspiracy theories to suggesting the Parkland students may be actors, NRA personalities like NRATV commentator Chuck Holton, NRATV host Colion Noir and Sheriff David Clarke have repeatedly attacked and disparaged the survivors of the mass shooting in Parkland, Florida, most of whom are still in high school. Below are just a few examples:
- NRATV host and spokesman Colion Noir suggested Parkland survivors might actually be actors, and were part of a grand hoax or conspiracy.
- NRATV host and spokesman Chuck Holton called a teenage Parkland survivor “another useful idiot.”
- NRA booster David Clarke tweeted: “The well ORGANIZED effort by Florida school students demanding gun control has GEORGE SOROS’ FINGERPRINTS all over it. It is similar to how he hijacked and exploited black people’s emotion regarding police use of force incidents into the COP HATING Black Lives Matter movement.”
