UPDATES AT BOTTOM OF ARTICLE.
Came across this from our pals at BLM757 out of Newport News, Virginia:
It was in response to this:
Yikes, Moms Demand Action. Are your chapter leads (this one out of Virginia) condoning murder based on politics? we redacted the children, as they have nothing to do with this disgusting statement sent to BLM757. Before her current profile pic, this was it:
And a few other pic updates:
And another post that works into her selective outrage when it comes to unjust police shootings:
Through checking out the profile, we got a name:
Sure enough, she is, in fact, a Virginia (BLM757‘s state) Moms Demand Action lead:
Melanie Cornelisse with Moms Demand Action said Thursday she wants more funding for gun safety programs, another big issue this year.
“We are hoping that our elected officials will support gun safety laws and support these kind of intervention and gun violence prevention programs,” said Cornelisse.
Cornelisse was the 65th speaker. She supports giving millions to enact new gun legislation.
About her being a chapter lead:
Mayor Louis Jones and the City of Virginia Beach proclaimed Friday, June 1 “National Gun Violence Awareness Day,” while Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America hosted a “Wear Orange” event at the Thalia Methodist Church.
“Orange is the color hunters wear in the woods to say `Don’t shoot,” said Sibel Galindez, Hampton Roads legislative lead for the group and organizer of the event, along with Leigh Anne Woodside, Hampton Roads group lead, Marian Kiehl-Kearney, Hampton Roads elections lead, and Melanie Cornelisse, Chesapeake lead.
So there you have it. MDA chapter leads like to private message people and let it be known “they see you” and post an example of a person shot to death in their sleep due to politics. Keep in mind BLM757 also got harassed by local MDA members and even Shannon Watts (she wanted the cops to arrest them) due to them defying a local gun control ordinance:
Be it also known that she (Melanie) was also involved in this incident in which a group of pro-2A women, including the Mom-at-Arms founder, Jill (who is also with the DC Project and One Million Moms Against Gun Control) attempted to have a civil discussion with Virginia gun control advocates during a zoom meeting, only to be called “pathetic“ for their stance on gun rights:
UPDATE SINCE ARTICLE POSTED:
Interesting, as the Breonna (get it right, MDA lady) Taylor death was executed by a department and a police chief (Steve Conrad) allied with, wait for it.....Moms Demand Action!
Now how about the mayor of Louisville, where Conrad was chief (S. Conrad was fired mid 2020 after another major blunder involving an officer involved shooting)?
And what did the Taylor family and their lawyers have to say?
LOUISVILLE, Ky. —
Mayor Greg Fischer called allegations that a redevelopment project contributed to the death of Breonna Taylor outrageous and nefarious.
Fischer held a news conference Thursday to shed some light on the Russell neighborhood redevelopment plan, also called Vision Russell, which has come under scrutiny after recent claims by Taylor's family's attorneys.
The attorneys claim Louisville Metro Police more aggressively pursued a drug case against Jamarcus Glover, who they say is Taylor's ex-boyfriend, and others, because of where they allegedly operated -- a home on Elliott Avenue in the heart of Russell.
The attorneys claim certain "lingering" homes and people remained an obstacle to the redevelopment plans, including Glover. They said a dedicated squad within LMPD's Criminal Interdiction Unit called Place Based Investigations was tasked with focusing on certain areas which needed to be "cleared" for real estate development.
On March 12, officers with the CID obtained five search warrants related to their investigation of Glover. Three were for homes on Elliott Avenue, one was for a residence on Muhammad Ali Boulevard and the fifth was for Breonna Taylor's apartment 10 miles from Elliott Avenue.
Take a seat, Moms Demand Action.
Holy hell this lady is now accusing them of being allies with white supremacists and being part of the gun lobby and then she is telling them what to do (yes boss lady, show your “white privilege” and boss around a Black Lives Matter chapter) LOFL!
