If I'm a bigot and xenophobe for supposedly opposing the Parkland students opinions, then what does that make them for being intolerant of mine? When they help organize national movements to restrict rights of law abiding citizens, then take that movement around the world, I have the right and obligation to loudly raise my voice.
I also don't care what the UAE thinks of our gun laws - not one bit, but evidently the Parkland students think they do because they traveled to foreign soil to gripe about it.
I don't see anything intolerant about the Parkland students disagreeing with your point of view.
It is you who brings in irrelevant and incorrect data to make what the students do somehow bad.
UAE does not have Sharia Law, it's law is based on Sharia Law and has roots in it, but it is not Sharia Law.
Once you realized you went in "half cocked" (the thing you accuse the students of) you amended it to "semi Sharia", whatever that means.
Oh yeah...your level of experience is that your daughter went to Dubai and she didn't like it.
You called what the students do "ridiculous".
It is equally ridiculous to expect that the civil opinion in UAE or Israel or whatever other country can somehow put pressure on the USA to disarm on a civil level.
You really think the state of Texas is going to amend its gun control legislation because a lot of people in Germany think they should?
Finally, people who experienced horror travel around the world continuously. Happens all the time.
You have people from the USA who travel to other countries to do their story, and you have people from around the world going to the USA to do theirs.
Often by invitation and the Parkland students are no different from other people who have a story to tell.
And of course there are a whole bunch of people in the world who would love to hear from the students because most countries do not have school shootings.
Perhaps because they do have gun control legislation?
Maybe you should ask yourself why it is that in this horrible UAE where you cannot kiss on the street, and where you cannot curse at a taxi driver, you don't have school shootings.
Or why in Israel where there are plenty of guns, you have no school shootings.
Or why in Canada where you can buy guns, you seldom have school shootings.
Or why in Europe, where you have tight gun controls, you almost never have school shootings.
Perhaps time to give some thought why it seems to happen all the time in the USA?
Maybe the Parkland students have a point?
