ATTACKS ON EMMA GONZALEZ CONTINUE
She must be doing something right when adults and right-wingers chose her as a target of their inane comments.
Iowa Republican Rep. Steve King’s campaign team mocked the “look” of Parkland shooting survivor Emma González in a meme published to King’s Official Facebook Page Sunday, March 25, drawing criticism from shooting survivors.
It’s part of a wave of recent attempts to discredit Gonzalez and other survivors as they call for legislation to address gun violence.
The item includes an image of González with tears streaming down her face at Saturday’s March for Our Lives in Washington, D.C., as she recalled the 17 lives lost at her school, Marjory Stoneman Douglas High in Parkland, Florida.
The accompanying text criticizes González’ Cuban heritage, seeming to reference the Cuban flag patch seen on her sleeve.
“This is how you look when you claim Cuban heritage yet don’t speak Spanish and ignore the fact that your ancestors fled the island when the dictatorship turned Cuba into a prison camp, after removing all weapons from its citizens; hence their right to self defense,” the post says.
