David Hogg launches lofty hashtag campaign from HIGH atop his soap box – and falls flat on his face


Media darling David Hogg, the Parkland high school grad who has foregone his first year of college to take part in a national bus tour to advocate for greater restrictions on gun rights and encourage young people to register to vote, has launched another hashtag campaign.

…except this one isn’t turning out quite as the activist teen intended.

Fresh off the floor of his hometown grocer, Hogg shared his latest hyperbolic anti-gun message to his 831,000 Twitter followers.

“The sound of gunfire echoes everywhere,” Hogg tweeted. “You hear it in our cities, towns, and it brings grief to our Native American friends, too. But you know what’s louder? The sound of all of YOU demanding change. use to speak for your right to live and be safe.”

The tweet offered supportive responses such as this:

There is plenty of angst on the right over the platform the media has granted this 18-year-old to espouse what often proves to be misinformation, such as calling 5 million members of the NRA “child murders.”

The fact  Hogg now keeps company with powerful gun control fanatics like billionaire Michael Bloomberg only adds to the anxiety.

But the best thing supporters of the Second Amendment can do is let David Hogg be David Hogg.

Not the qualified expert to speak on such critical matters as the right to self-defense, or free speech, as the media holds him up to be, but a fresh high school graduate still living at home who is totally inexperienced in the ways of the world.

Here’s a sampling of the reaction to Hogg’s hashtag campaign that he may not have bargained for, including concerns over using Native Americans for “a prop.”
