David Hogg has taken the main stream media and the anti-second amendment crowd by storm. He is young, appears articulate and very savvy as seen recently with the whole Laura Ingraham dust up. Ms. Ingraham was wrong to mock Mr. Hogg. She has apologized. Mr. Hogg won’t accept it.
This video may tell the story. Be careful is all I can say to those considering him as a reliable voice for gun control. This is a real interview that has gotten very little traction. If you have children, please don’t let them watch this as there are no “bleeps” for the fowl language. The interview was with “The Outline”. Here is the link if you want to go to the original source. Here is more on “The Outline” if you want an overview.
My take is that there is a huge underlying attitude of contempt here. That is dangerous and it shouldn’t be ignored. Now matter what side of the issue he might take, we should be careful to elevate this to a leadership level.
Contempt is defined as “the feeling that a person or a thing is beneath consideration, worthless, or deserving scorn.” An example cited is “this action displays an arrogant contempt for the wishes of the majority”. In other words, it is “defiance” of authority. We do have a second amendment. It is clear.
When your old-ass parent is like, ‘I don’t know how to send an iMessage,’ and you’re just like, ‘Give me the f…ing phone and let me handle it.’ Sadly, that’s what we have to do with our government; our parents don’t know how to use a f…ing democracy, so we have to.”
It just makes me think what sick f…ers out there want to continue to sell more guns, murder more children, and honestly just get reelected. What type of s…ty person does that? They could have blood from children splattered all over their faces and they wouldn’t take action, because they all still see these dollar signs.”
Honestly, it’s alright that people are buying more guns. I just care that they are being safe individuals. And they can practice their Second Amendment rights all they want. I don’t give a f*ck about that. I just want to make sure that a crazy-ass individual doesn’t get an AR-15 or any weapon at all.
For the record, I am very supportive of our second amendment.
