During a program, right-wing preacher Lance Wallnau created with pastor Andrew Wommack, Walnau declared that the tens of thousands of students who have been marching and protesting for gun laws in the wake of the Parkland, Florida, shooting are as dangerous as “the Brownshirt Hitler Youth.”

“I’m still upset over the fact that 3,000 schools with children 14, 15 and 16 were organized by—I’m sorry to say—left-wing Democratic mobilizers to be forced to have to go out and have their first experience of doing public protests and, in a sense, to raise a fist of frustration at government, feeding in to this whole sick culture that we have on the left of perpetual discontent and organized protest,” Wallnau fumed. “These kids, whether they wanted to or not, have peer pressure, teachers, students, propagandize them and making them go out and march.”

“The left is lawless,” Wallnau added. “The create lawlessness and then they raise up a rebellion out of the very lawlessness they create. So all these kids marching and having their posters made and organized; this is, in my opinion, it’s as dangerous as Hitler raising up the Brownshirt Hitler Youth and forcing them to become politicized and weaponized. From age 10 to 14? I know most adults aren’t prepared to discuss the Second Amendment profoundly, let alone a 10-year-old or a 14-year-old. This is an abuse of political leverage through the school system, which tells us the left will politicize everything, from the Academy Awards to the Golden Globes to schools and high school and there is always an agenda and the agenda is power, not righteousness.”
