Ginni Thomas, the wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, is sharing on her Facebook page a series of posts critical of the survivors of the Parkland, Fla., school shooting, who have become vocal advocates for gun control.

Thomas shared a post Monday that included a pile of shoes from people killed during the Holocaust. The post was directed at students who walked out their classrooms last month to protest gun violence.

"To all the kids that walked out of school to protest guns. These are the shoes of Jews that gave up their firearms to Hitler. They were led into gas chambers, murdered and buried in mass graves. Pick up a history book and you’ll realize what happens when u give up freedoms and why we have them," the post said.

Another post Thomas shared specifically went after Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School student David Hogg. Along with the post, Thomas wrote: "So, just wondering, who got the permits and paid for buses for this YOUTH march?"

Thomas, a conservative activist and speaker, also shared an article titled, "Who Runs March for Our Lives?" 

"Do you really believe the students of Parkland are doing this?" she posted, along with the article.

Gun control has become a central issue in the country since a gunman opened fire at Stoneman Douglas last month, killing 17 people.

Students who survived the shooting have since become vocal advocates for gun control, demanding that lawmakers pass new gun laws to prevent future shootings. They've endured withering criticism from the right over their activism.

Last month, more than a million people in cities across the country participated in the March for Our Lives to protest gun violence and demand change.
