Robert Kraft Provides Patriots Plane For Parkland, Fla., Students, Families

Sports Illustrated

New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft provided the team’s plane to fly the families of the 17 victims and other injured students of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting to Washington D.C., the team’s spokesperson said.

The students and thousands of others are expected to participate in the “March for Our Lives” rally against gun violence on Saturday.

Patriots spokesperson Stacey James told The Boston Globe that Kraft lent the plane to those victims after former Arizona representative Gabrielle Giffords and her husband, Mark Kelly, contacted him.

“Not only did their friends and teachers get shot and killed, other friends shot and injured . . . most of them, they had bullets flying over their heads,” Kelly told the Washington Post “This is not fair that they have to deal with something like this at their age. They wanted to go to Washington and be heard, and so I felt it was our obligation to help them.”

More than 800 “March for Our Lives” are planned worldwide.

  1. Oh, the irony. kraft, joo-supreme and owner of the “patriots”, is helping the anti-gun children.

    Don’t worry, his joo buddy kelleher from swa is gonna help, too.

    I wonder where miller, giffords etc and all the rest fall in with their backgrounds?

    I am just an anti”semitic” conspiracy theorist, so never mind me.

  2. Here’s a fun quote from miller. She’s half right, anyway.

    “I would say something about the politicians if the Jews were in charge of the weather, but that’s not right.” 

    When asked about the strange comment, Miller told DANGEROUS she is Jewish and “the truth is, I wasn’t really thinking about it. I was just making a joke.”

  3. ….and I wonder who paid for the plane tickets to send all the kids to Isra-hell to lobby for US gun control…

  4. The 17 attendees were given designated areas to adhere to for safety purposes and for their security.

    Warning them that outside the beltway it gets really black at night.

    Well at least the last time I was there.

    In 1976…

    Probably gotta bunch of Cambodians and Syrian refugees running the town now.

    And Mexicans cooking Japanese Teriyaki food.
