GOP Mayor’s Criticism of Anti-Gun Activist David Hogg Could Have Major Consequences

Published

on

Waterville Mayor Nick Isgro could be facing a recall vote after criticizing Parkland shooting survivor and rabid anti-gun activist David Hogg.

Isgro wouldn’t be the first person to experience severe backlash after taking shots at Hogg. Fox News host Laura Ingraham was forced to take a “vacation” from her show and lost a significant amount of advertisers after having a Twitter altercation with the young gun control advocate.

The recall movement in Waterville is being headed up by former Maine Democratic Mayor Karen Heck, with the end goal being to see Isgro removed from office.

In April, Isgro reportedly reveled in Fox News’ president backing Ingraham after the boycott and wrote on Twitter, “Eat it, Hogg.”

A screenshot of the alleged tweet can be seen below, copied and shared by an account that calls itself “Waterville Republicans.”

The group wrote, “We are deeply disappointed in @nickisgro1’s recent tweet about @davidhogg111. As #2a supporters, we don’t agree with David’s policy ideas, but he should be treated with respect and decency, especially given the terrible tragedy he endured. Mr. Mayor, apologize.”

Isgro himself responded to the movement to have him ousted from office on Facebook:

“My team will be closely examining the petitions for accuracy since over 14% of the petition signatures were disqualified or rejected so far,” he added, noting that the movement was nothing more than an an “effort organized by dark money funded outsiders,” and said that the attack is not just on him, but on “all of us.”

“They do not like the way we run Our City, they do not like that we speak up at meetings, and they do not like how you have worked with me in an effort to put you first before politics and political agendas,” Isgro continued. “They want to silence us. They do not like that Democrats, Republicans, Independents and those not enrolled in political parties have come together as a unified people to achieve great things — as friends and neighbors should.”

Here’s the full post:

While his comment might have lacked professionalism to a certain degree, he’s certainly entitled to his own opinion, and to be fair, David Hogg — who is now legally an adult — chose to get involved in the public arena.

He knew full well what the political climate is like in America in the 21st century, yet he chose to not only wade into the water, but dove in on one of the most divisive issues in our country: guns.

This is aside from the fact that Hogg himself has repeatedly insulted his elders for not implementing gun control, an act for which he was given a complete pass by the media.

This comment in no way justifies a recall vote, which in turn translates into a full nullification of the voters’ voice in Waterville.

The First Amendment no longer seems to matter in America anymore.

Barack & Michelle Obama Purchase Home for Nearly $12 Million on Almost 30 Acres of Land

You’d be smiling too if you were a multi-millionaire…

Working in the public sector is not supposed to make people rich. For example, Barack and Michelle Obama were certainly not extremely well-off before Barry became president. But thanks to all the book deals and Netflix deals and this and this and that, the Obamas now live quite a comfortable lifestyle thanks largely to Barack’s time serving the American people. Ain’t that something? You can cripple a nation for nearly a decade, trash her, disparage her at every turn, and still wind up with millions beyond your wildest dreams!? God bless, America. From Daily Wire: The former President and First Lady received the keys to their new mega-home which occupies 29 acres of beachfront property. […] The house was originally listed for $14,850,000 but TMZ reports the Obamas managed to obtain a huge discount and secured the 6,900sq ft home for $11.75 million. PHOTOS: Most first lady’s don’t remain as active as Michelle after leaving the White House. The reason is simple: nobody cares what they have to say. Predictably, Obama doesn’t understand that. She appears to desperately need the attention. Check out the clip below where Michelle goes on NBC’s “Tonight Show” and mocks First Lady Melania Trump for bringing her a gift on Donald Trump’s inauguration day… https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iEkMp6J0YIM#action=share Of course, Michelle gifted Laura Bush on Barack’s inauguration day. Did she forget about that? Just attacking Melania to be cool and edgy? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i9Vw7Mx21A0#action=share During an interview with ABC’s Robin Roberts, Obama admitted she was at first skeptical of Barack. The reason? Because white people liked him. Roberts: “You– you weren’t overly impressed in the beginning?” Michelle: “I– I wasn’t, you know? I have my suspicions when a bunch of white folks fawn on over a black man ’cause I sorta think, ‘Okay, he can talk straight so they think…

Confirmed: Pelosi Makes Clear That Dems Will Draft Articles of Impeachment Against Trump

Based on………what?

What you may or may not have imagined happening is happening. The Democrat-led House of Representatives is set to draft articles of impeachment against the duly-elected president of the United States, most likely because they disagree with the content of his tweets. There is no other reason; no other legitimate reason. Dems know that 45 did nothing wrong with Russia or Ukraine but thanks to the power of the mainstream media, they believe they have the people on their side. At the end of the day, impeachment has to go through the Senate. And who controls the Senate? Republicans. Therefore, will this impeachment attempt backfire come 2020? You’d have to imagine so.

Independents are key in the shift, with 49% opposing impeachment and only 34% supporting impeachment. In October, 48% of independents supported impeachment and 39% opposed. From Daily Wire: Kurt Volker, the former U.S. special envoy to Ukraine, and Tim Morrison, a top National Security Council official that was on President Donald Trump’s Ukraine phone call, both confirmed during their testimonies on Tuesday that there was no quid pro quo, no bribery, and no extortion. WATCH: [email protected] completely deconstructs the Dems’ case with her questioning. “Schiff got the facts wrong” is turning into an evergreen phrase. Morrison & Volker agree no quid pro quo, no bribery, no extortion. 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥 https://twitter.com/TCPigott/status/1196955642868719617?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1196955642868719617&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Fimpeachment-witnesses-confirm-no-quid-pro-quo-no-bribery-no-extortion A great day for Republicans, a great day for our Country! https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1196958035127783427?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1196958035127783427&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Fimpeachment-witnesses-confirm-no-quid-pro-quo-no-bribery-no-extortion Our Crazy, Do Nothing (where’s USMCA, infrastructure, lower drug pricing & much more?)
