The vice chairman of the Republican Party in Cobb County, Georgia is under fire after promoting a video that claims the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida was a “fake shooting.”
Vice Chairman Michael Davis shared a Facebook video which claims that an active shooter drill prior to the Parkland shooting last month was evidence that the massacre never happened, reports WXIA. It goes on to falsely claim that students at Douglas High School were “rehearsing” prior to “the fake shooting aired by NBC.”
“Maybe 11Alive should focus on the fact these so-called ‘student lead’ protests are anything but with left-winged organizations from the ACLU to the SCLC just in Cobb County when it opens the door legally for outside political organizations using students to disrupt the school day when the US is already ranked near the bottom in education among industrialized nations,” Cobb Country GOP Chairman Jason Shepherd said in a statement.
“If a school district opens the door to one, then under Equal Protection they must allow any group of students to stage walkouts. What will this do to education in America?”
