BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KGET) –March For Our Lives, a PAC created by survivors of the 2018 mass school shooting in Parkland, is targeting Congressman Kevin McCarthy with a mobile multi-sided billboard that is traveling across Kern County.
The billboard claims that McCarthy supports conspiracy theories promoted by Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Georgia, and is calling on McCarthy to condemn Greene, who the organization is advocating to be expelled from Congress.
“Hey Congressman McCarthy — Parkland was real,” one side of the billboard reads. “If a massacre kills kids in Bakersfield, will you say our deaths are fake?”
In 2018, Greene said the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School was a “false flag planned shooting” and also advanced a conspiracy that the 2018 Camp Fire in Northern California was started by Jewish “space lasers.”
A spokesperson for Congressman McCarthy provided the following statement regarding Greene’s claims: “These comments are deeply disturbing and Congressman McCarthy plans to have a conversation with the Congresswoman about them.”
Hey @GOPLeader Kevin McCarthy, we’re in your district today showing constituents how ridiculous it’ll be if you fail to condemn the dangerous, conspiracy-peddling congresswoman @RepMTG tomorrow. pic.twitter.com/4enAV78rsl— March For Our Lives (@AMarch4OurLives) February 2, 2021
