‘Something dark and sinister’: Fed-up Americans push ‘Hogg-wash’ campaign to make him go away

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.”

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.

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.

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.
