Governor Henry McMaster (R-SC) gave a few of his deep Republican thoughts on today’s nationwide walkouts protesting gun violence, to a news crew from South Carolina ETV.
It appears that these school children, innocent school children, are being used as a tool by [this] left-wing group to further their own agenda. It is not about the tragedy. It is not about the school children. And what we can all do, and what these students should do, I imagine a lot of them intend to do, is to pray and to hope for those families of the folks who were slain.
But this is a tricky move, I believe, by a left-wing group, from the information I’ve seen, to use these children as a tool to further their own means. It sounds like a protest to me. It’s not a memorial, it’s certainly not a prayer service, it’s a political statement by a left-wing group and it’s shameful.
It IS a protest you old stupid prick. Do these mysterious “left wing” activists include David Hogg, a survivor of the Parkland shooting you have so profoundly prayed and hoped for, Gov. McMaster?
That’s fine those future voters will not reelect you and outlive you too can’t wait to see what the history textbooks our generation writes will have to say about people like you https://t.co/96wQvE1cNA *cough cough its called the first amendment.

McMaster is the guy that only became governor after Nikki Haley resigned to become a waste of history as Trump’s U.N. ambassador. He faces a big primary in his own party this fall and then a bigger Democratic wave after that.
