DAILYKENN.com -- Crisis actors exploiting the tragic shooting in Florida "have no soul," according to Ted Nugent.
The rise to infamy of David Hogg and others suggests the teens are being coached and led many to label Hogg a crisis actor.
200,000 anti-Second Amendment extremists rallied in Washington, DC days after the tragedy, pointing to a contingency plan set in place long before the actual shooting occurred.
The tragedy, itself, was like spontaneous. Nonetheless, the far left extremists anticipated another shooting and, it appears, were prepared in advance to exploit it.
Police were apparently ordered to stand down, allowing seventeen young lives to be lost and the media to create a firestorm of rage against gun owners' rights.
Extremists prefer to refer to the crisis actors as "survivors" eliciting sympathy and tacitly placing them in the same category as holocaust survivors.
Survivors who support the Second Amendment have been routinely ignored by the mainstream media.
YouTubers who use the term "crisis actors" are receiving strikes and talk show hosts critical of the crisis actors are facing advertiser boycotts.
Far-extremists are determined to control the conversation.

National Rifle Association board member and classic rocker Ted Nugent slammed survivors of the Parkland, Florida, school shooting, calling them "liars" and "poor, mushy-brained children."
Nugent made the comments during an interview on "The Joe Pags Show," a nationally syndicated conservative radio program.
"All you have to do now is not only feel sorry for the liars, but you have to go against them and pray to God that the lies can be crushed and the liars can be silenced so that real measures can be put into place to actually save children's lives," Nugent said about the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School students.
"These poor children, I'm afraid to say this and it hurts me to say this, but the evidence is irrefutable, they have no soul," he added.
Nugent's comments come six weeks after 17 people were gunned down at the high school, reigniting a national debate on the nation's gun laws. An outspoken supporter of President Donald Trump, he joins a growing list of conservative pundits, commentators, and government officials who have railed against the student activists.
"The lies from the left, the lies from these poor, mushy-brained children who have been fed lies and parrot the lies, they are actually committing spiritual suicide because everything they recommend will cause more death and mayhem, guaranteed." Nugent said.
Later in the interview, radio host Joe Pagliarulo showed him clips of survivors David Hogg and Emma Gonzalez railing against the NRA on CNN.
"The dumbing down of America is manifested in the culture deprivation of our academia that have taught these kids the lies, media that have prodded and encouraged and provided these kids lies. I really feel sorry for them because it's not only ignorant and dangerously stupid, but it's soulless," Nugent said after watching the videos.
"To attack the good, law-abiding families of America when well-known, predictable murderers commit these horrors is deep in the category of soulless," he added.
In his response, Nugent also defended the NRA.
"The level of ignorance goes beyond stupidity. Again, the National Rifle Association are a bunch of American families who have a voice to stand up for our God-given, constitutionally guaranteed right to keep and bear arms," Nugent said.
Nugent's comments about the students drew backlash online.
Several Parkland survivors took to Twitter and demanded an apology.
"If only he saw all the tears. If only he had to look into the eyes I've looked into. If only he saw what this did to all of us," junior Cameron Kasky tweeted. "And here the NRA is, receiving more fear-based donations than ever. Talk about 'no soul.' This guy better apologize. Seriously."
