"This is the kids! It's THEIR movement!" In a pig's ass.

The March For Our Lives against gun violence, organized by kids for kids, quietly registered as a 501(c)(4) with the D.C. Department of Consumer and Regulatory Affairs, The Washington Free Beacon reports — a designation that allows the March to keep its big money donors secret from prying eyes. 

According to WFB, the March, whose signature event is scheduled for this Saturday, decided to incorporate as a "social welfare" organization, and a non-profit, but not a 501(c)(3), a designation which would have allowed those who donated to the March to claim their contributions as tax deductions, but which would have required the March itself to submit a list of their contributors to the IRS.
Wonderful, isn't it.
The Huffington Post also discovered that while the kids are theoretically in charge, a "board of directors" that reads like a who's who of progressive activists will decide how the nearly $4 million the kids have raised is spent. 

George Kieffer, chair of the Board of Regents of the University of California; Jeri Rhodes, who is with the Friends Committee on National Legislation, a Washington-based lobbying group founded by Quakers; Aileen Adams; who served under former Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa; Nina Vinik, an attorney who has a background in gun violence prevention; Vernetta Walker from BoardSource, an organization that provides support for nonprofit leaders; and Melissa Scholz, an attorney who has expertise in nonprofit law. 

The Parkland studentsuseful idiots(there, fixed it for them) will serve as an "advisory board" with no apparent official say over how the funds are dispersed.

I believe the descriptive term you are looking for there is "fascist whores".
