Parkland student activist David Hogg has had more than his 15 minutes of fame, and his time may be running out.
It seems the media saturation of Hogg and his fellow liberal classmates from the Florida high school where last month’s mass shooting left 17 people dead, has worn out its welcome.
Social media users tired of seeing Hogg, hearing Hogg or being lectured by Hogg, launched a campaign to “make him go away.”
OMG just make him go away … stop giving him air time … lets start a new trend #BLOCKTHEHOGG enough already … they want you to parrot this stuff … just stop it …

The hashtags #BlockTheHogg and #Hogwash began to appear on Twitter as a collective venting unfolded against the 17-year-old who has been the face of the left’s anti-gun narrative following the Florida school shooting.

There is no argument. The Hogg is a fake Parkland student used by the left to push a gun control narrative. That’s it. Nothing more to tell and I’m sick of seeing his face in my feed.

Hogg’s most recent target has been Fox News conservative Laura Ingraham who dared to say he was whining about not getting accepted by some colleges he applied to, a fact he openly shared himself. The teen ignited a firestorm as he called for a boycott of Ingraham’s advertisers after his feelings were hurt, a move that has since seen nearly a dozen companies pull their ads from the Fox News Channel’s primetime show, “The Ingraham Angle.”
Conservative commentator and writer, Candace Owens, sees something alarming behind the actions of the teens.
“No ‘kid’ thinks up mercilessly going after someone’s advertisers because they called him ‘whiny,'” she tweeted.
There is something very dark and sinister motivating @davidhogg111 and @Emma4Change right now. I won’t be among the adults that sit back and pretend this is okay.

Hogg teamed up with liberal activist group Media Matters to launch the boycott and conservatives have fought back on the Ingraham attack with a counter boycott, using the hashtag #IStandWithLaura. They now have turned to Hogg himself.
I try not to be mean by blocking people who differ in opinion with me but I must say he really needs to go away now pic.twitter.com/rEF5TK6VO6

Frankly, any fowl-mouthed little snot who USES dead teenagers to make himself “famous” while peddling a failed liberal policy that has nothing to do with keeping ANYONE safe is fair game in my book.
What’s the problem?#HoggWash #ThursdayThoughts

I agree completely! Hogg put himself in the strike zone….he wants to be the “big man on campus” yet he starts whining when someone RT what he himself has made public knowledge! You can’t have it both ways David! You just can’t!

He’s not a kid he’s an adult he can join the military just like my son did. Let him put his big boy pants on and play with the big boys!
