2.) Propping Up Children… and Tearing Them Down

The media and the Democrats can’t seem to figure out whether or not they should use children as political tools or tear them down when they see them, based on their own biases and inability to see the world through anyone else's eyes.
This becomes all too apparent when one looks at the cases of the Covington Catholic High Students and David Hogg.
The media circulated fake news about a group of high school students being racist and attacking a Native American activist. Multiple outlets showed edited videos of the high schoolers appearing to harass the activist. These videos were manipulated to make it look as if they were attacking him but this isn't the case.
The reality was that the activist was harassing them! But you wouldn’t have ever known this if the entire video wasn't released.
After a tragic shooting in Parkland, Flordia several students received national attention from the media and members for the Democratic Party as new voices for gun control. David Hogg was the most prominent. The Left defended these students endlessly, in contrast to students that did not support the same agenda, like Kyle Kashuv.
