David Hogg: ‘What if our politicians weren’t the bitch of the NRA?’

Four weeks ago, David Hogg was some skinny pencil-necked kid whose name nobody outside his family and circle of friends knew. Today, David Hogg is still some skinny pencil-necked kid who knows as little about politics as he evidently did before a shooting at his Florida school thrust him into the media limelight.

Now in his newfound capacity as national spokesman on gun control, Hogg appears in a professionally made video promoting yet another national demonstration in which he can star: a March for Our Lives to be held March 24.

The video, which has been viewed 417,000 times, features a dramatically lit Hogg looking directly into the camera, a studious expression on his face, asking three rhetorical questions, each followed by a clip of one or another media figure sympathetic to Hogg’s “cause.”

The questions, which follow, suggest respectively that Hogg (1) is a little too big for his britches, (2) is unaware that he is personally too young to vote, and (3) seems to believe he is a parent.

Here are the questions:

  1. What if our politicians weren’t the bitch of the NRA?
  2. What if we all voted and said, “This is not OK”?
  3. What if we stood up as Americans and fought for our freedom and our children’s lives?

Some of the 2,200 comments are by real adults with real thoughts who make a sincere effort to set this teen straight. Some examples:

Others play into Hogg’s disinformation campaign:

In the end, what this upstart needs most is to be taken out to the woodshed and/or have his mouth washed out with soap.
