Oprah joins growing list of Hollywood celebs donating to anti-gun March for Our Lives rally

Right, there’s nothing political about this at all.

Oprah Winfrey announced this week that she is matching a $500,000 donation from liberal actor George Clooney and his wife, Amal, in support of the gun control group, March For Our Lives.

The group was founded by surviving Parkland, Fla. high school students and their handlers.

The students are out in front of a planned pro-gun control march in Washington, D.C. next month following last week’s tragic shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School that claimed 17 lives.

A march Oprah is likening to the civil rights movement of the 1960s.

“George and Amal, I couldn’t agree with you more,” tweeted the media mogul worth an estimated $2.8 billion. “I am joining forces with you and will match your $500,000 donation to ‘March For Our Lives.’ These inspiring young people remind me of the Freedom Riders of the 60s who also said we’ve had ENOUGH and our voices will be heard.”

Other noted Hollywood celebrities offering financial support include director Steven Spielberg and wife Kate Capshaw, and studio executive Jeffrey Katzenberg and wife Marilyn, who are also dropping half a million dollars each, according to Variety.

Second Amendment supporters may want to keep this in mind the next time they opt to take in a film and line the pockets of Hollywood liberals.

The Clooneys, who are making their donation in the names of their eight-month-old twins, plan to also attend the march, saying “our children’s lives depend on it.”

Never mind that the odds of the Clooney progeny ever attending public schools are south of zero.
