Hands up! As soon as you heard there was another high-school shooting in America, you knew that in the back of your mind that self-proclaimed gun activist and saviour of the masses, David Hogg, would pop up like a bad case of herpes, making himself front and centre of the conversation.
And there he was, on cue and already lecturing responsible and law-abiding gun owning citizens on social media over their second amendment rights and why it was the National Rifle Association’s fault that another mentally deranged teenager had illegally gained possession of a firearm.
On his crusade to unarm accountable and registered gun owners, Hogg took to Twitter and simply tweeted “We are fighting for you” a defiant message to lawful and honourable citizens that despite the constant threat of illegal migration and MS-13 gang members, he is coming for your right to lawfully defend yourself.
However, Hogg was not met with the celebrity worship and adulation that he was probably expecting, but instead met with a barrage of criticism and ridicule, with many pointing out that he is just trying to promote his political and social views rather than actually contribute anything of substance.
“If you were telling the truth, you’d be willing to look at all avenues that would stop these senseless shootings. Not just destroying the NRA. Your political views are more important to you than the lives of these victims.” wrote one concerned user.
While one user simply wrote “God, he sucks.”
Despite being accused of being a ‘crisis actor’ and a far-left activist, Hogg has been enjoying his 15 minutes of fame since being caught up in the Stoneman Douglas High School shooting on February 14, 2018.
He has declared himself a gun control advocate, an activist against gun violence in the United States, and has urged his Twitter followers to boycott companies and public figures who dare disagree with him.
Soon after the incident in which as many as 10 were left dead and 10 injured in the Texas school shooting, Hogg took to social media again to offer his narrative on the ongoing incident.
“Get ready for two weeks of media coverage of politicians acting like they give a shit when in reality they just want to boost their approval ratings before midterms.”
However, as with his previous tweet, many users went online to call out David Hogg for his virtue signalling and lack of compassion for the murdered and their families, and instead using the shooting, in which he was once a survivor in a similar incident, to showcase his anti-Trump and socialist stance.
“Wow, you didn’t waste any time going into gun control, did you? Kids are dead. Show some respect!’”
Officials have identified 17-year-old Dimitrios Pagourtzis as the shooter, but what motivated him is still yet unknown, but with all the fake news on mainstream networks as well as conspiracy theories making the rounds on Twitter, we can be sure of only one thing, and that is that this incident almost came at the perfect time for the left… in order to hide the Chilean bishop pedophile scandal, the IG report on Hillary Clinton that’s about to drop, as well as even more news coming out from Anthony Weiner’s laptop… amidst the Royal Wedding of all pure events…
Now we can expect David Hogg, along with his comrade Emma Gonzalez, to be on CNN for the next few weeks pointing the finger of blame towards the NRA and upstanding gun owners, while ignoring the fact that the FBI, the Democrats, and the local authorities continuously turn a blind eye to the mentally ill and those that cause harm to others, with or without a gun.
