David Hogg has become the face of the Parkland high school shooting, eclipsing the tragic memories of the 17 victims who were murdered by Nicolas Cruz.
Hogg has been rabidly elevated as a media celebrity by the mainstream press, who found a willing mouthpiece to push their anti-Second Amendment agenda. In a profanity-laced, rambling interview with The Outline, Hogg slammed the NRA and pro-Second Amendment politicians, calling them “sick f**kers.” (Video warning: language)
The Outline hosts treated Hogg as if her were a Constitutional scholar and gun expert rolled into one. His answers proved, once again, he is neither.
“It just makes me think what sick f**kers out there want to continue to sell more guns, murder more children, and honestly just get reelected,” Hogg said. “What type of sh*tty person does that? They could have blood from children splattered all over their faces and they wouldn’t take action, because they all still see these dollar signs.”
Hogg basically pinned all the blame for the Valentine’s Day mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School on the National Rifle Association (NRA) and the Second Amendment.
Keep in mind that no mass shooter in American history has ever been a member of the NRA. Nor has there ever been a shooting at an NRA gathering even though everyone has a gun.
Hogg, 17, cavalierly said it’s up to him and his teen peers to fix America because today’s “old-ass parents” are too clueless and incompetent to do it.
“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.”
Hogg said he doesn’t care about the lip service politicians pay when they express their condolences after a shooting because they’re insincere. “Those f*ckers aren’t getting re-elected,” said young Hogg, who’s not even old enough to vote.
The budding activist wants to take guns away from law-abiding citizens and thinks gun control is the answer to mass shootings, but it’s unclear if he would have wanted his father (a retired FBI agent) to not have his gun during his employment with the agency.
In his anti-gun salvo in February, Hogg urged tourists to boycott Florida until guns are outlawed in his home state. However, many slammed David’s childish suggestion, saying a boycott would only hurt innocent people, like the bartenders and waitresses whose livelihoods depend on tourism.
Hogg’s newfound activism is commendable, but there’s a limit to how seriously we should take the advice of a 17-year-old kid who has never held a real job or paid his own bills.
The state of California has the strictest gun-control laws in the United States, but that didn’t stop an illegal alien — a 7-time convicted felon who had been deported 5 times — to gun down Kate Steinle in 2015, when Barack Obama was president.
That also didn’t stop illegal alien Luis Bracamontes from shooting two San Diego police officers to death in 2014 and then laughing about it. At trial, Bracamontes told the judge his only regret was that he didn’t kill more Americans.
“Only thing that I f—en regret is that I f—en killed two,” Bracamontes laughed. “[I wish I] had killed more of the motherf—ers!”
If electing anti-gun politicians is the answer, how does David Hogg explain the record number of mass shootings that occurred under former president Barack Obama?
Whether you’re a gun advocate or not, the right to bear arms in self-defense is a civil liberty guaranteed by the United States Constitution. In fact, it’s considered so important that it’s the *2nd* Amendment.
Where were all the anti-gun protests during the mass shootings that occurred under Barack Obama? Remember the 2009 Virginia Tech massacre? What about the 2012 Sandy Hook shootings?
Here’s a breakdown of mass shootings by president:
- Barack Obama (Democrat): 162
- William J. Clinton (Democrat): 23
- George W. Bush (Republican): 20
- George HW Bush (Republican): 12
- Ronald Reagan (Republican): 11
Meanwhile, Hogg’s classmate Kyle Kashuv is a Second Amendment advocate who wasted no time condemning the interview:

Karma bites back at young David:
Just got rejected from another college but that’s ok we’re already changing the world. Goodnight everyone
