David Hogg, 17 year old school shooting survivor, has been making headlines in the Mainstream Media for the last week. Hogg has criticised the government’s latest demand that all students must have see through backpacks to avoid another school shooting incident, where he called it unfair and a violation of his privacy. The irony here is that Hogg has been calling for President Trump to ban guns and get rid of the second amendment whilst insulting him in the process, now he is the one worried about having his rights violated.
At this point, to judge David Hogg you have to take on board that he was involved in a school shooting. This experience for him would’ve been life changing, if the rumours that he was a paid CNN actor isn’t true. So at the beginning, I personally had some sympathy for Hogg over what he and his classmates had been through. Hogg had a good opportunity to do some research over the causes of school shootings and how we can effectively prevent it. Instead he went straight to CNN to read of off a script that they had specially prepared for him, where he embraced his role of bashing the NRA and the second amendment – even though a ban on the second amendment would not get rid of gun crime, period. Banning illegal weapons will go as well as the war on drugs, there will always be drugs and there will always be guns. Other students have testified against CNN for putting them onto a script, where the bash the NRA and the President.
Then bad went to worse when Hogg started insulting people personally, including in the President of the United States who has expressed his intention to help make schools safer. In a conversation between Hogg and President Trump, Hogg blanked Trump and hung up on him. At this point, it became apparent that Hogg was only interested in ripping on the president rather than wanting to make his country safe of gun crime.
Then was the moment I lost all respect for the boy, when he started needlessly attacking parents over their politics. “When your old-ass parent is like, ‘I don’t know how to send an iMessage,’ and you’re just like, ‘Give me the f*cking phone and let me handle it.’ Sadly, that’s what we have to do with our government; our parents don’t know how to use a f*cking democracy, so we have to.” I don’t have any children but if I did have children, I would not want them listening to him.
But the worst part about him is that he acts like a facist. Now with a large Twitter following that will like his every post, Hogg feels like a leader with loyal followers. However it is strange that he’d choose this as an outfit:
This is very Nazi-ish of you David, good luck getting the Jewish communities to embrace this look.
Oh and they even come in red, just like the Nazi’s, all he needs is a brown shirt and an SS cap! And his followers are the ones who dare to call anyone right of Stalin a facist… You can argue that there is a peace symbol on it but I’ll remind you that Hitler stated that he was for the people and wanted to help rebuild Germany.
Here is the snotty weasel giving a salute after a very big headed speech at the March For Our Lives Rally where students were reportedly bullied to go by their schools. All he needs to do is unclench his fist and he’s gone full on Goebbels. But don’t just take my word for it, here is what Twitter had to say about it all:
David Hogg is not a hero, he is a puppet for the DNC created to try and take away the rights of hundreds of millions of ordinary Americans. He does not stand up for the safety of his country, all he wants to do is act like a child and rip into the President for political brownie points. He had an opportunity to raise questions and look into the most efficient ways to stop school shootings. Instead he became CNN’s puppet.
