Memes comparing the Parkland students to Nazis have circulated at the fringes for days, but on Tuesday seemed to find a wider audience.
I wonder what gives people that impression.
Hijacking “Never Again” to promote victim disarmament as the Nazis did with the Weapons Law of 1938 (which has its own odd connection to previous US legislation)? I keep expecting to Hogg to froth at the mouth and bring up a “final solution.”

The hell with transparent backpacks. I want to see high school girls forced to wear transparent bras and blouses so they can’t hide weapons.
Not really, of course. But apparently it is going to take more than backpacks for these little immature whiners to see the irony of demanding firearms bans on honest folks with the inevitable “transparency” of searches to force compliance. It’s just “common since.”
It occurred to me that, having grown accustomed to accommodating moderators and “journalists” prompting them, they might need a little help focusing. I reached out yet again with a request for a simple email interview. It wouldn’t even be interactive, where I could spring surprise questions on them. I provided a list of prepared questions to which they could provide carefully crafted answers without time pressure.
Please note that I have been unable to determine a single person authorized to speak for Never Again MSD, which provides them with deniability when some Parkland student who self-identifies as NA MSD makes vague, ludicrous, and irresponsible statements.
But perhaps I’m being unfair. After all, these are students who may be busy with cla… oh. Wait. These are former students who claim they won’t return to classes until our rights are shredded.
Still, they do seem to keep busy, with oddly nonadversarial interviews, in which the ” the moderator did not stop to challenge in what amounted to a circus show.”
David Hogg says white privilege is one of the biggest obstacles he’s faced in his anti-gun agenda,
…says the white kid getting a pass from the media.
Cameron Kasky says mass shootings like Parkland “happen everyday.”
…says one of the founders of NA MSD, who one might think speaks officially for the group. And who is blissfully unaware that school shootings are down. Even leftist NPR knows that.
These students do have time for interviews, or to pen a column outlining their… beliefs. But somehow they will only spend that time with over-friendly venues that won’t point out their empirical lack of clothes. Venues and “journalists” who enable their ignorance.
They’re afraid of being questioned, of being called out on facts. Afraid of anything but basking in their 15 minutes of lamestream media adoration.
That they won’t even try to state their goals with clarity and specificity indicates that they know they are pushing bullshit. They even refuse to name a spokesman who can be held to account.
The cowardly little schoolyardtruant bullies enjoy their life of lies too much to bravely face a less accepting commentariat.
Their only real convictions are that they are entitled to abuse and accuse the innocent, to trample on rights, and cry when someone disagrees.
[And poor little David Hogg appears to be giving up on going to college…
…what with all those rejection letters. Perhaps those colleges saw your interviews and concluded that you’re not very bright, and likely to be a campus troublemaker. That your education to date is inadequate for collegiate studies. Possibly even, they realized that under Florida law skipping too many days of class makes you ineligible for a diploma, and won’t waste a college slot on a drop-out. Funny thing…
Back in the day, I applied to several colleges. I was accepted by all of them. I went to then-Southwestern at Memphis on a partial scholarship. And I wasn’t a “brilliant” young “victim” on whose words CNN clung.]
Carl is an unpaid TZP volunteer. If you found this post useful, please consider dropping something in his tip jar. He could seriously use the money, what with truck repairs and bills.
People using the große Lüge and Reichstag fires to demonize entire demographics innocent of crimes in order to suspend rights, to exert control.
The Third Reich? The Fourth, I’m afraid.
I’d put off writing this column because I feel so strongly about the subject. If that sounds paradoxical, all me to explain.
I am an impassioned writer. Sometimes, when I feel strongly about something — when I’m angry — that is reflected in my writing to an extent I think is inappropriate for The Zelman Partisans. I try to keep the material with extreme tone and language confined to my personal site.
This time — because I’m angry, and the topic — it is appropriate to TZP.
I generally avoid Twitter and Facebook, for reasons of my own, so I don’t know just when the victim-disarming gunpeople-controlling fascists of the anti-RKBA movement adopted the hashtag slogan. I noticed it, and expected it to fade away when someone clued in the idiots. Around the time of the Parkland shooting it became impossible to miss. And either no clued them in…
Or it was exactly the message they want.
Scumbags in the major leftist media want you to associate this hashtag slogan with “eliminating school massacres.” Their clueless dupes go along. (I’m looking at you, David and Emma.)
Let me tell you about Never Effing Again, you lying bastards. You “Never Again MSD,” puppets.
Let me tell you about six million men, women, and children deliberately disarmed, herded away to concentration camps, and murdered. Seventeen million total “undesirables.”
It’s called the Shoah. Maybe you’ve heard of it as the Holocaust.
Seventeen million people murdered. All within a few short years. Families broken. Families eliminated completely. Often their very bodies eliminated.
Human beings registered and tagged like cattle, and sent to slaughter houses.
Can you grasp that number? Did “Common Core” math prepare you for death on that scale?
More than all of America’s wartime casualties. Ever. Combined. More than all the civilians lost to what you like to call “gun violence.” In our entire history.
Because they were disarmed by the Nazis.
Right about now, I’m sure the folks doomed to repeat history are smugly proclaiming that to be a right-wing gun-clinger lie, that the Nazis didn’t disarm anyone because the gun control laws were passed by the Weimar Republic. That conveniently ignores the 1938 — Nazi — law that allowed the denial of permits and licenses for Jews and other “undesirables.”
Perhaps we should look back a few more years. The Reichstag Fire comes to mind: Someone torched the German parliment building; “communists” were blamed, and it was used as an excuse to pass new laws to suspend human/civil rights. Modern day victim-disarming rat bastards see every new high profile shooting — especially the ones the government should have been able to prevent (see Sutherland Springs, Orlando, DC Navy Yards, Charleston, Parkland) — as their own personal Reichstag fire to justifyrationalize disarming the millions of people who didn’t do it.
Just like good little Nazis, pointing their fingers at the Jews… NRA… gun owners. Working to “make people free” of fear of gun violence.
#NEVERAGAIN is not yours to use to distort reality. It certainly isn’t your to use to reaccomplish the Nazis’ evil; disarming the undesirables all over again.
Be honest: The hashtag slogan you really want, that truly represents your goals is
It isn’t going to work this time around, Latter Day National Socialists. Because we do understand “Never Again,” and you aren’t dealing with 6,000,000 disarmed men, women, and disposable children. There are tens of millions of us who have a sneaking suspicion of your intent should you ever manage to render people helpless, and we declined to be… rendered.
