A few liberal activists have grander aspirations than just venting their venom on Twitter and are hoping to make it big in the world of politics.
Parkland, Florida, massacre survivor David Hogg told New York Magazine that he has his sights set on Congress when he turns 25 to further his gun grabbing agenda.
Hogg, 18, has made a name for himself, absorbing the spotlight as a well-organized anti-gun movement all too eagerly scooped him up along with several of his leftists classmates and paraded them around the country after the horrific school shooting.
New York Mag’s interview reads as if Hogg is a both struggling victim and a brave “warrior” (real quote) who had given both kidneys – and a lung – to terminally ill children he never met.
When you sift through the abounding accolades and the profanity unleashed by Hogg (this makes him “edgy” according to NY Mag), you find that Hogg will be attending college at the University of California (of course), but that’s just a stepping stone to get to D.C.
“Older Democrats just won’t move the f*** off the plate and let us take control,” Hogg said. “Nancy Pelosi is old.”
Hogg has been most recently inspired by the Democrat Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez who he hopes and believes will be president one day. He’s also been critical of former and incumbent Democrats including Bernie Sanders and Barack Obama.
“Honestly, they all kind of suck,” Hogg said.
Hogg is not alone with the hope that he can breathe new life into the Democrat Party and he might have some competition — or a running mate. Fueled by Trump-hate, former first daughter Chelsea Clinton is also feeling the itch to run for Congress.
“At federal level, as much as I abhor so much of what President Trump is doing, I have a great amount of gratitude for what my congresswoman and my senators are doing to try to stop him at every point,” Clinton said, according to WND.
“While I disagree with the president … I think my family … is being really well represented,” she added. “But if that were to change, if my city councillor were to retire, if my congresswoman were to retire, my senators, and I thought that I could make a positive impact, then I think I would really have to ask my answer to that question.”
“For me it’s a definite ‘no’ now, but it’s a definite maybe in the future because who knows what the future is going to bring.”
So, it’s a definite “no” and a definite “maybe.” How politcian-y.
Since Chelsea has political pedigree coursing through her blood, that’s almost certainly a “yes” on a future run.
While distraught Hillary fans may be hoping for a second chance with Chelsea, many who know Hogg from his home town and who’ve directly and tragically been effected by the Parkland massacre have a very different view of the self-absorbed leftist star.
Hunter Pollack, whose sister Meadow was killed in the massacre, has been busy making REAL change in Broward County by going door-to-door to promote school board candidates and local officials. While he’d been promised activism from his now famous peers like Hogg, they’ve been nowhere to be found on the local level.
“We talked about uniting. There’s been no uniting yet,” Pollack said of Hogg in a video posted to Twitter last week. “I haven’t even seen them knock a door yet in Broward.”
Hogg and his gun-grabbing friends have been touring the country, selling books and doing interviews like the one in New York Magazine.
It seems he’d make a GREAT candidate for today’s Democrat Party.
