You Might Be Incredibly Surprised By What David Hogg Just Said About the Texas Shooting

Well ….. on second thought, maybe not.

Published

David Hogg has barely been in the spotlight long enough to become predictable, and yet he has in three months of beating the same old gun control drum, and beating it incredibly loudly, turned into an almost satirically huge stereotype of the uninformed, rhetoric-laden gun control advocate.

The just-turned-18-year-old was, up until recently, in the news nearly every week with some new explosive statement about gun control or plan to blackmail businesses associated with the NRA, gun manufacturers, or Laura Ingraham into getting behind his cause.

Supporters of the Second Amendment no doubt cringed at the thought of Hogg’s response to the latest school shooting in Santa Fe, Texas on Friday, but, shortly before a stream of all the same inane ranting against the NRA and the Second Amendment, he had a brief moment of clarity and said something actually true:

He probably has no idea how much he has struck at the core of the horrific trend of school shootings, since he spends the vast majority of his time blaming people who have absolutely nothing to do with school shootings and are actually much more capable and successful at securing our nation’s schools and citizens.

But it’s true.

As we as a society glorify school shooters, we create a series of antiheroes that other young, angry, ill-adjusted men across the country who have been left behind from the modern progressive era in every imaginable way.

This young man in Santa Fe was not the first school shooter to have an apparent interest in the Columbine shooters, and it was reported following the Parkland shooting that the shooter’s brother became fascinated with his brother’s fame.

 

What’s ironic here, of course, is that Hogg himself is a perfect example of the way young men seek fame, influence, and ultimately power, and he no doubt fails to notice this as he calls for us not to make the Santa Fe shooter notorious while simultaneously urging the nation to take the advice of a bunch of teenagers when it comes to our most sacred rights.

He’s also completely unaware that by making this statement, he’s extracting from every other argument against guns he’s ever made, separating the weapon of choice from the mind of the criminal who carried out the senseless massacre.

Regardless, truth is truth, and Hogg ought to be given credit for this tiny glimmer of wisdom, however much he still has to learn about gun violence.

This may or not come as shocking to some people. Like Ocasio-Cortez and Tlaib, freshman Democrat Rep. Ilhan Omar often finds herself on the wrong side of the issue. Here’s just the latest example.

To some, a godsend. To others, a disgrace. What cannot go overlooked, however, is that Obama lied to the American people about the strength of radical Islam while burying 470,000 documents related to the raid on Osama bin Laden’s compound. Why? In order to win re-election in 2012. From Western Journal: In a detailed exposé in The Weekly Standard, journalist and author Stephen F. Hayes showed that Obama buried a staggering number of documents from Osama bin Laden’s compound, and essentially lied to the American people about the real status of Al Qaeda in order to win votes. […] A key piece of Obama’s re-election was the elimination of bin Laden and the claim…

FACEPALM: Ocasio-Cortez Repeatedly Refuses to Condemn Terror Attack At ICE Facility (Watch)

Just another day in the life…

AOC and her “squad,” which consists are far-left radicals like Rashida Tlaib, Ayanna Pressley, and Ilhan Omar, are the gift that keeps on giving. They are virtually gift wrapping the 2020 election to President Trump. When pressed about the domestic terror attack by an Antifa activist at an ICE detention facility in Washington this past weekend, AOC would not condemn the man’s actions. Because that’s where liberalism is, nowadays. From Daily Wire: The attacker repeatedly called the facilities “concentration camps” in a manifesto that was obtained by the local media outlet. The media has repeatedly tried to tie manifestos of white nationalist terrorists to President Donald Trump, suggesting that he was somehow responsible for attacks on a synagogue and on a mosque. The media has not held Ocaiso-Cortez to the same standard, even though she single-handedly interjected the “concentration camp” rhetoric into U.S. politics. […] Ocasio-Cortez was asked about her rhetoric and whether she would condemn the attack. Ocasio-Cortez refused to answer the question.
