Brainwashed Teens Reason Behind March for Our Lives Protest!

What happens when teens have been brainwashed by Hollywood and a socialistic school system? An attack against our fundamental right to keep and bear arms.

Knowledge is power. The problem with knowledge among our young people today, is that they are not receiving it. Our teens are being brainwashed by a culture, primarily Hollywood, who is training our kids how to kill through violent media including TV shows, movies and video games. And we wonder why our kids are picking up guns and not thinking twice about pointing it at their classmates and pulling the trigger.

Combine that with students no longer being taught what the United States Constitution entails in our school system today, and we have a major disaster on our hands. The Second Amendment, in particular, protects the right of the people to keep and bear arms and was adopted on December 15, 1791, as part of the first ten amendments contained in the Bill of Rights. When students are not being taught their fundamental rights and learning from an entertainment industry daily training them how to solve conflict through violence, we have an uneducated, misinformed, anxiety-ridden Generation Z ready to blame whatever the secular media tells them to blame.

In the wake of the recent horrific school shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, where 17 innocent people lost their lives, the finger was quickly pointed at guns as being the issue. This couldn’t be further from the truth. Guns are not the problem, it’s the people who pull the trigger who have a problem. It could be a heart problem, uneducated problem, misinformed problem or a whole host of other problems. We must stop pointing the finger at the wrong things and start digging deep at what is causing the rise in violence.

Questions we should be asking are:

  • Why are teens killing their peers?
  • How are these teens coming to the conclusion that violence is the way to solve problems?
  • Why are the red flags of teens who are in crisis not being reported or if they are reported, they are not investigated further and offered help?
  • Why are laws not enforced in the entertainment industry to stop Hollywood from promoting behaviors that are illegal for teens to do? For example: glorifying drinking among our kids when it’s illegal for kids to drink.
  • Why are video game ratings not enforced when a 10-year-old is in the check out lane buying a game that’s only allowed for people 18 years of age or older?
  • What happened to America’s kids once prayer, God, the Bible and anything else Christian related was stripped from our country’s schools?
  • Why is evolution (we came from a rock), which is belief system, allowed in our classrooms, but Creationism (God created us) not allowed? We should have equal choice available in our education system today. Both of these are religions.

Point is, in every facet of society today, kids are being conditioned to believe, act and become anything but what God has called them to be. We can see the result of that in our world today. Loss of vision and purpose and people perish. Sad thing is, we are no longer just talking about our kids not living a successful life. We are literally talking about kids perishing as a result. Lives cut short, because we as a country are failing at training our kids the way God has called us to raise them.

To the policy makers in Washington D.C, we must keep the Second Amendment, so that every American can protect their loved ones from the people who are being brainwashed. Those that fight for obliterating the Second Amendment would quickly change their mind if someone was holding them at gunpoint. Criminals would never hand over their guns if the Second Amendment was ditched, hence leaving innocent Americans unarmed when attacked.

I also do not believe a majority of liberal news today due to the lies being promoted as truth just to get the Second Amendment repealed. This major misinformation then fuels an unnecessary fire among the uninformed, uneducated, brainwashed teens who then start a revolution with this “student walk out” chaos along with the upcoming March 24th protests. In fact, the very same celebrities promoting violence in entertainment through music, film, TV and video games are supporting this upcoming March for Our Lives protest by doing several free concerts for their fans. Miley Cyrus, Demi Lovato, Ariana Grande are some of the celebrities, just to name a few. Don’t fall for Hollywood’s hypocrisy.

What’s the solution? As Christians, we need to run for leadership positions in our country in order to restore value to life, bring back morals and raise the standards of character for the sake of the next generation. This means running for political office, getting on our school boards and reporting the news truthfully. Prayer is necessary, yes, but so is action! They will be taking care of us sooner than later. However, if we don’t invest in them now, they will not see the need to take care of us later.

Can we get this country back to it’s original purpose? Yes, but it will take every Christian to do exactly what God is calling us to do and work together as believers in Christ to make that happen. If we each did what God was calling us to do we would have a completely different nation. What is God calling you to do? What problem can you solve? Let Him use you to get this country back on track for the sake of our kids. As I recently heard at a Christian Women in Media Association (CWIMA) event, “If you’re not scared to do what God has called you to do, then you’re not dreaming big enough.” Together – let’s get this country back on track.

As a former actress, I know the lies of Hollywood first-hand. For the past 15 years I’ve been traveling the globe sharing my show called Hollywood Exposed. The best way we can make sure our kids are not brainwashed by today’s media, is by exposing the lies and teaching them truth – God’s word. I have a Parent Media Guide that will help parents do a pop culture purge in their home and make sure their kids are not corrupted by a backwards society. To get this valuable information, you can text the words MEDIAGUIDE (no spaces) to the number 444999. In addition, download the newly launched Counter Culture Mom app to stay updated on the latest pop culture news. As a mom of 4 kids 9 and under, I want to encourage you to stay diligent on protecting your kids from the messages they ingest. Let’s raise world-changers together who know the truth and can decipher the lies.

    Good article.
    Pls tweak 4th bullet point (no pun intended) to ‘when it’s illegal for kids to drink’.

    Hey, I was one of the teens participating in the March yesterday. I am not brainwashed. I am not against individuals owning or using guns responsibly but I do not believe that it should be so easy for anyone to access a gun. Everyone is entitled to their opinion but its ignorant to paint yesterday’s participants as ignorant. Many were there in response to the things they have experienced directly or indirectly. My parents were very concerned about letting me participate for safety reasons but they were able to see how it was so important to me and reluctantly let me attend.

      What did you think about what I wrote in it’s entirety? Do most of your classmates know about what the Second Amendment is? Why we have it? That criminals will NEVER hand their guns over if we lose our rights to own one? Then you will not be protected when something like this happens again. What are your thoughts on this? On what I wrote? tell me about what you think and what you’e being taught in schools and through entertainment. I’m very interested in hearing what you have to say!

        From my understanding, based on conversations with fellow marchers, I know that attitudes toward the second amendment ranges, from being completely against it to being for it. Though my family does not own a gun and I do not see myself owning one, I respect that it is a fundamental aspect of our constitution, which states that the right to bear arms is necessary for the security of a free state. Therefore, I think any responsible adult should be able to obtain a gun. What I hope to see is more uniform and thorough procedures in place to ensure adequate screening and background checks. I agree with you that those who want guns will find a way to get it but ensuring that there is an adequate and uniform standard for acquiring firearms could at least deter some unnecessary deaths.

        Regarding entertainment, I absolutely believe that violence, and especially gun violence, is glorified. I think parents need to be more vigilant and informed about what their kids are exposed to, and understand that each child responds differently to certain things. Though some may understand that what is depicted in films and video games are pure fiction, it may not be easy to grasp for some. I remember just a few months ago, I watched John Wick with my family, and although we initially cringed at the level of violence that was depicted, we were able to enjoy the movie and realize that this film is simply just entertainment. Of course, my experience may not represent that of other teenagers. But I feel how my parents have raised me and exposed me to different things in entertainment have helped me gain a clearer understanding of how violence depicted in movies is for entertainment value.

        Anyway, I am sorry for the long response. I know I have a lot to learn but I also wanted to share my side of the story because I do feel informed about this and am open to having a constructive conversation about this.

          Excellent thoughts! Thank you for sharing! Yes, violence in entertainment creates more violence in our country. Kids are learning to kill instead of working out their issues in other positive means – counseling, talking with others, etc. I’ve talked to school shooters face to face and they have told me that violence they were exposed to, gave them the ideas to shoot their bullies. And they did. Hardly any consequences are revealed in today’s entertainment as well. This should be illegal, because it tells our kids that you can harm others and there’s no repercussions. We must diligently watch what our kids are engaging in through the world of entertainment.

    Liberal states are about to pass a law right under our noses that if a child has a question our a concern about their sex identity a Doctor, social worker, foster parent or school service or councilor can not influence that child with the sex that thay are. This is sickening!! This country has gone mad!!

      I completely agree! Can you email me to keep me posted when that law passes or let’s keep praying it DOESN’T! Parents will no longer own their children!
