TIME Magazine named the left-wing survivors of the Parkland, Fla., shooting among the 100 most influential people of 2018 Friday, and former President Barack Obama wrote the article praising them.
Right-leaning survivors of the February shooting such as Kyle Kashuv were omitted in the piece. Instead, Obama praised survivors such as David Hogg and Cameron Kasky for dismissing “platitudes and punditry,” despite the pair frequently engaging in punditry themselves. Hogg is the same person who claimed that adults “don’t know how to use a f***ing democracy” in an interview with The Outline, and Kasky likened Republican Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida to a mass shooter on live television at a CNN town hall.
“Our history is defined by the youthful push to make America more just, more compassionate, more equal under the law. This generation—of Parkland, of Dreamers, of Black Lives Matter—embraces that duty,” Obama wrote. “If they make their elders uncomfortable, that’s how it should be.”
Their generation is certainly making the older ones more uncomfortable, but that may have more to do with teenagers propensity for eating tide pods and snorting condoms.
