Despite that the 17 victims of the heinous shooting in Parkland, Florida, on Wednesday aren’t even buried yet, Tom Perez and the Democrat Party are already fundraising off the tragedy.
In an email to potential donors, the DNC implored they sign a petition to Congress arguing “it’s past time to take action to address our country’s gun violence epidemic.”
Naturally, after signing the petition, supporters are forced to a donation page and urged to give money to ‘take on the gun lobby’.
Of course, Perez and company don’t bother to mention that more people are killed every single month in Chicago and Baltimore by gun violence than in any single school shooting despite that those cities boast the most draconian gun regulations.
We call that an inconvenient truth.
Here’s more from Daily Caller…
The Democratic National Committee is using Wednesday’s mass shooting that left 17 people dead to ask for campaign donations.
The DNC on Thursday sent out an emotional email, signed by DNC chair Tom Perez, asking supporters to sign a petition telling Congress that “it’s past time to take action to address our country’s gun violence epidemic.”
Anyone who signs the petition, which requires giving the DNC your email address and zip code, is re-directed to a donation page asking for money to “help Democrats take on the gun lobby.”
“Your contribution will benefit Democratic National Committee (DNC),” a line above the donation box reads.
Perez’s email relies on heavy, emotional language to draw in supporters. “Yesterday afternoon, a 19-year-old with a weapon of war walked into Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida and opened fire, killing 17 people and injuring many others,” Perez writes.
