David Hogg, the obnoxious anti-gun Parkland survivor who has become most famous for going viciously after Fox News host Laura Ingraham and calling for a boycott of her show is up to his old tricks again, this time he’s targeting Publix, making two absurd demands of the company.
Hogg is demanding a donation of one million dollars from the grocery chain and an anti-NRA pledge, while also calling for folks to hold a “die in” protest event at store locations.
Publix is being targeted by Mr. Hogg for its support of Adam Putnam, a Republican gubernatorial candidate who is now the state’s agricultural commissioner. The Tampa Bay Times reported earlier this week that Publix had given $670,000 during the last three years to Putnam campaigns.
Mr. Hogg not only sought atonement money from the grocery chain in Thursday’s tweet, he also demanded a pledge of ideological fealty to the gun-control movement.Advertisement - story continues below

“I call on @Publix to donate double the money they gave to Putman [sic] to the Stoneman Douglas Victims fund, $1,000,000. And never support an A rated NRA politician again,” he wrote.

Here’s what Publix had to say about their support of Putnam:
“As the hometown candidate, Publix has had a long-standing relationship with Commissioner Putnam,” spokesman Brian West said. “We support pro-business candidates, and believe Commissioner Putnam will make a great governor.”
This anti-gun nonsense is getting completely out of hand. A company has the right to support whoever they want, as that’s the whole point behind freedom of speech in this country.
Hogg and his minions are absolutely insane if they think they have any sort of right to make demands of a private company simply because they do not support their cause, especially something as absurd as demanding a million dollars.
This kid has lost his marbles.
At the end of the day, what Hogg doesn’t seem to grasp is that he’s just a tool being used by the left to infringe on the rights of law abiding citizens and ultimately, he’s working to create more victims of violent crime.
Hopefully, one day soon, this young man will wake up to reality.
