Here’s why folks are calling title of David Hogg’s book not only clueless, but shameful

Parkland high school student David Hogg and his sister have scored a major book deal expounding on “the birth of a new movement,” but have created controversy before it is even released.

Hogg, the media darling of the student anti-gun movement since the mass shooting at his Florida school in February, has teamed with his sister Lauren book deal with Random House, the publisher announced Wednesday.

The planned book, “#NEVERAGAIN: A New Generation Draws the Line,” is being described as “a statement of generational purpose, and a moving portrait of the birth of a new movement.”

The siblings announced they would be donating the proceeds from the book to charity and Random House will make a donation to nonprofit organization, Everytown for Gun Safety, according to Time Magazine.

But while Hogg has made waves with his incendiary rhetoric and his calls for boycotts against pro-gun companies as well as Fox News’ Laura Ingraham, who hurt his feelings by tweeting about his college rejection letters, it is the title of the upcoming book that has ignited the latest backlash.

Perhaps the Hoggs need a history refresher. Although with the current state of education in the school system, maybe teaching about the Holocaust was left out of liberal textbooks.
