Democrats inviting Parkland students to intern this summer, but where’s Santa Fe’s town hall, CNN?

So, has Kyle Kashuv received an invitation yet?

NBC News reports that House Democrats are inviting students from Majory Stoneman Douglas High School to intern this summer to work on gun violence prevention … which may or may not be a step up from lying on the floor of a supermarket.

Reminder: Any time the media uses the shorthand “Parkland students,” they’re referring to a subset consisting of anti-NRA activists like David Hogg and Emma Gonzalez.

NBC News reports:

House Democrats are inviting students from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida — who survived a mass school shooting in February — to come intern in their offices, working on gun violence prevention.

“We think it would be a great experience for them to be on the Hill to see exactly how things operate — or doesn’t, to some degree — but also to have time with these very special young people that have experienced something that none of us ever want to have experienced and I think we can learn from each other,” House Democratic Caucus Chairman Joe Crowley, who is helping lead the effort, told NBC News.

Our politics are about 180 degrees from hers, but we think Symone D. Sanders has a valid point here — why are the Parkland students getting special treatment, as if there haven’t been other young people affected by gun violence?

Wait y’all!! Are the #Ferguson protestors, young people who were/are on the frontlines in #Baltimore or the amazing student activists from #Chicago getting internships too? Nah? https://t.co/jNN3xxEWl9

I love the Parkland students. Everyday their perseverance encourages me. But I also love them b/c they have been good at talking about their privilege and bringing other students whom don’t get town halls and Harvard invites to the table.

So it really bothers me when time & time again folks act like the students from Parkland were the first kids who experienced a tragedy that decided stand up and demand change in their communities. It’s like the young folks in Ferguson, Baltimore, Baton Rouge, DC etc don’t exist.

I will be asking the @HouseDemocrats that they consider an intern policy that incorporates the voices of kids who navigate their communities daily while under the threat of gun violence. Those young people matter too…And pissed I even have to say that.

While Sanders asks the House Democrats why they’re limiting their invitation to Parkland students, quite a few people are asking when the survivors of the recent school shooting in Santa Fe, Texas are getting their own CNN town hall?

It’s sick that since majority of Santa Fe students oppose gun control and favor school security measures instead that the media won’t give them nearly as much coverage as the MSD students. Students of SFHS, my DMs are open to work together with you. I know your pain. #FixIt!

And this is why the Santa Fe kids won’t get a CNN townhall ==> https://t.co/8eOONtUfzt

Just not Santa Fe students, right? Still waiting on their townhall, @CNN.#ideologues https://t.co/iTi2TYS0GZ

Which reminds me… why hasn’t CNN called for a townhall with Santa Fe?

@CNN Still waiting on the Santa Fe townhall. I guess their pro 2A stance doesn’t fit your agenda. Y’all couldn’t find an attention seeking, NRA bashing loudmouth like David Hogg to run on a 24 hour reel?! Shame on CNN!!

Has CNN scheduled a town hall yet with the kids from the school in Texas?

No because they wouldn’t have their “assault rifle” talking points to lean on https://t.co/7CXJBKX12n

Something tells me this won’t happen. But I’m sure @brianstelter will report on why because “apples.” https://t.co/c4bDwwZAtQ
