The vice chairman of the Republican Party in Cobb County, Georgia shared a video on Monday that claims the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida was all an act rehearsed by students.
According to WXIA, Vice Chairman Michael Davis took to Facebook where he shared a video that claims the Parkland shooting never happened.
The video shared by the GOP official claims that students at Douglas High School were “rehearsing” prior to “the fake shooting aired by NBC.”
Cobb County GOP Chairman Jason Shepherd attacked student protestors in a statement and refused to say whether the conspiracy theory was the official position of the party.
“Maybe 11Alive should focus on the fact these so-called ‘student lead’ protests are anything but with left-winged organizations from the ACLU to the SCLC just in Cobb County when it opens the door legally for outside political organizations using students to disrupt the school day when the US is already ranked near the bottom in education among industrialized nations,” Shepherd said. “If a school district opens the door to one, then under Equal Protection they must allow any group of students to stage walkouts. What will this do to education in America?”
