On Wednesday, Democrat and former Vice Presidential hopeful, Tim Kaine, took to social media to praise the recent student-lead anti-gun protests.
Kaine then made the ridiculous leap to compared the children, who are skipping school to protest in an attempt to repeal the Second Amendment, to the Civil Rights Movement.
“Let us remember which side was consigned to the dustbin of history,” which appeared to be a message to American gun owners and the NRA.
The spirit of #NationalWalkoutDay is familiar: 55 years ago, thousands of children skipped school to protest segregation in the streets of Birmingham—a moment that forever changed the Civil Rights Movement.
