Tweet of the Day: Is David Hogg now a eugenicist?

David Hogg, whose Wikipedia page (yes, he has a Wikipedia page!) identities him as an “activist,” has worn many hats in his brief — shall we say? — professional life.

He briefly worked as a financial adviser, counseling investors to steer clear of BlackRock and The Vanguard Group, two firms whose portfolios include positions in gun manufacturing companies. Not many adults were willing to listen, and both companies were unsurprisingly unfazed by the boycott.

Hogg and his younger sister Lauren tried their hand at professional writing, co-authoring a book titled “#NeverAgain.” The tome, published in paperback by Random House, was released without much fanfare. If you’re interested in a copy, you can get one at Target, marked down from its MSRP of $10 to $7.41.

As to what David Hogg is up to nowadays, a curious tweet suggests that he is now into eugenics. Much of the tweet is boilerplate — for Hogg, anyway — promising, (theatening?) as he has now countless times since a shooting at his high school started his Warholian clock, to “change the world.”

But it’s the last part of the tweet — specifically the words for those that should still be in it — that is interesting.

Is Hogg intimating that he now believes in a “final solution” for those who refuse to share his view of a world free of guns (via government fiat)? If he does, the belief would be of a piece with his Hitlerian salute during the March for Our Lives rally in Washington, D.C., and the Hitler Youth armband he designed for his movement back in March.
