Oprah, Clooney Give $1 Million to Anti-Gun March

“These inspiring young people remind me of the Freedom Riders of the 60s.”

Actor George Clooney and his human rights lawyer wife, Amal, announced they are donating $500,000 to the “March for Our Lives” anti-gun march scheduled for next month in Washington, D.C. and the actor is not even fazed by the fact that he’s gotten rich off of being a gunslinger in movies.

Clooney released the following statement to inform us of his generosity and to let the kids know he will be there with them:

Amal and I are so inspired by the courage and eloquence of these young men and women from Stoneman Douglas High School.

Our family will be there on March 24 to stand side by side with this incredible generation of young people from all over the country, and in the name of our children Ella and Alexander, we’re donating 500,000 dollars to help pay for this groundbreaking event.

Our children’s lives depend on it.

Climbing aboard this virtue-signaling train is media mogul Oprah Winfrey. She was so moved by the Clooneys' donation that she matched it, bringing the total to $1 million. She took to Twitter to let us know she is equally as generous and to tell the protesting high school students in Florida that they are just like the black bus riders who defied the South and rode on segregated buses:

 

 

Perhaps they truly care about these kids, or perhaps Oprah is looking for a running mate:

Either way, these Hollywood elites think they're the ones to save the United States like they do in the movies — except with fewer guns.
