David Hogg is currently the loudest anti-gun voice for the left, but he just made himself look like a bigger idiot than he ever had before. Considering that he has displayed a lack of knowledge of the Constitution and a lack of decency in his interactions with government leaders, that is no small task.
David Hogg made a mind-boggling statement on Twitter on Friday. “The NRA is scared- that’s why they brought out the President and the VP for the first time to their convention. The young people will win,” he wrote.

The young people will win. #USAoverNRA

In those two sentences, Hogg made a number of mistakes. For starters, getting both President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence to come to its convention is the opposite of being scared. It is called being defiant.
When he says that “the young people will win,” who is he talking about? Is he talking about pro-gun rights teens like Kyle Kashuv and brother of Sandy Hook victim Jesse Lewis, JT Lewis? Who elected Hogg the president of the youth?
But David was not done making himself look foolish. He took his argument to his favorite network, CNN, and continued to explain his theory.
“This is the first time they had the president and the vice president come out to the annual convention for the NRA. What they are saying here is that they are worried because the support we’ve been getting and the support we’ll have in midterms,” he claimed.
This is interesting. Every time the 18-year-old Hogg speaks, he reveals himself to be nothing more than a tool of the Democratic Party. His singular focus on helping the Democrats win in the midterms has been evident. And for the record, he “survived” the shooting like the people who watch rockets take off at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station “survive” trips into space. They are somewhere in the vicinity of the rockets when they take off but never actually get near them.
Hogg, who has had one failed boycott after another, believes that Americans will not vote for anyone who has taken campaign contributions from the National Rifle Association in the November elections. “If you are supported with the NRA, you don’t stand with kids you stand with the gun manufacturers and the people making money off this fear and tragedy that is perpetuating itself,” David Hogg told CNN’s Anderson Cooper who, as usual, did nothing to challenge him.
Hogg was joined by fellow Parkland student activist Cameron Kasky, who went after President Donald Trump for his support of the NRA. “[Trump] was saying some things that implied that he was stepping forward into the right direction for gun safety in this country and then he had a meeting with some NRA officials, a private meeting, and afterwards he came and claimed that the Second Amendment was under siege and he was going to defend it,” he said.
Kasky was referring to the speech that President Donald Trump gave at the NRA convention in Dallas on Friday where he said he will protect gun rights for all Americans. “We will never give up our freedom. We will live free and we will die free,” Trump said. “We’ve got to do great in ’18.”
David Hogg’s rant came hours after he accused President Trump of committing acts of treason, for which he got schooled by the president’s supporters. But it appears that of the lessons Hogg learned in school, he missed one of the most important. It’s better to keep your mouth shut and appear stupid than open it and remove all doubt.
