Miami’s Dwyane Wade Visits Marjory Stoneman Douglas Students: “I’m Inspired By All Of You”

Published

The Miami Heat’s Dwyane Wade is the latest celebrity to go out of his way to heap praise upon the far-left students of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, who have used their school’s tragedy to become minor celebrities while pushing for gun control.

Wade has been outspoken since the February 14th shooting at the Parkland, Florida school about his support for the student’s pushing for gun control, and visited the school on Wednesday to spend time with them.

“First of all, I am so excited to be back in this city, be back in this state,” Wade told the assembled students.

“I just want to come here today, and hopefully, for a moment, for a second, bring a little bit of this,” Wade said in a video posted to Twitter. “Bring a little excitement, bring a little joy.”

“What you guys have been going through and … how resilient you guys have been — I’ve been amazed from afar. I just wanted to come and say I’m inspired by all of you. As someone out here in the public eye, I am proud to say I’m from this state.”

Last week, Wade dedicated the rest of his season to Joaquin Oliver, a 17-year-old student killed in the Parkland shooting, who was buried wearing Wade’s No. 3 jersey.

The 15-year NBA veteran became emotional when talking about Oliver’s gesture, and went on to write Oliver’s name on his shoes prior to his team’s February 27th game against Philadelphia – a game in which he hit the game winning shot.

As expected, Wade’s visit to Parkland caused quite a stir on social media, as well.

One would assume that a better use of the student’s time, considering the amount of class time they’ve missed in the wake of the shooting, would actually be in class rather than drooling over yet another liberal celebrity trying to use a few 16-year-olds to force gun control on law abiding Americans.

But, of course, it is all about the children.
