The Big Dollar, Dark Money Contributions That Fund March For Our Lives
Similarly, after the Parkland shooting, the media promoted the fiction that a retired FBI agent’s son and his merry band of plucky high school student friends started “March for Our Lives” (probably in their garage) after school.

Yes, once upon a time. Again, that was all a lie.

Now we learn that 99.5% all of the nearly $18 million raised in the first year by this new “student-led” group did not from the $25 donations sent in by everyday Americans who just wanted to keep their children safe.

Instead, almost almost $17 million of the total came from exactly 36 donations of between $100,000 to $3.5 million.
