‘What is this kid saying?’ Hogg tells MSNBC we need worry about perpetrators of evil in bizarre segment

The left’s activist darling, David Hogg, insists that Americans should elect politicians who do not go after those who perpetuate evil.

In the wake of the mass shooting at a Pittsburgh synagogue that left 11 people dead, Hogg repeatedly put forth his argument in an interview on MSNBC.

“This Congress in this election on November 6, Americans have the chance to go out and save lives and elect politicians that don’t try to divide and conquer but try to unite and conquer the challenges that we face as a people, that attack the sources of evil and not the people that are perpetrating it,” Hogg said on MSNBC’s “Kasie DC.”

Hogg became the liberal face and voice of the anti-gun movement following the deadly shooting at his Florida school, Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, back in February. His comments on MSNBC following the attack on the Tree of Life Synagogue were not in error, as he reiterated his questionable point again.

“Because in reality, none of us are Democrats or Republicans, we’re Americans that have to face the same issues every day and we’re not going to get anywhere by blaming other people,” Hogg continued. “We have to go after the sources of evil and not those perpetrating it, contrary to what the president likes to do.”

He also took the time to slam President Trump for his call for armed security in places of worship, mocking the idea of a “good guy with a gun” as being part of the larger effort to sell more guns.

Naturally Hogg missed the whole point of how one “good guy” could have taken down the Pittsburgh shooter. And his argument about going after the sources of evil and not those perpetrating it only earned him a solid takedown on Twitter where he was mocked for his “uninformed and ignorant messages.”
