Who was outside and behind the school instead of inside the school where he could have done some good. Once the shooters were inside, he couldn't do anything. So get your FACTS straight, libert@rd.

The Left routinely ascribes absolute moral authority to grieving victims in furtherance of their political agenda.  Their agitprop is often manipulative and exploitive, but it works.  Appeals to facts and reason aren't enough anymore; persuading the public increasingly requires emotional appeals.  Even if they find it inherently unpalatable, conservatives must promote people whose personal stories offer counter-narratives to liberals' tragic parade of victimhood.  Katie
