As we reported earlier Thursday, profane teen demagogue David Hogg got worked up after conservative talk show host Laura Ingraham responded to news that he had been rejected by four colleges. This didn’t sit too well with Hogg, who apparently believes that while he’s free to smear millions of innocent gun owners, no one is allowed to criticize him. He then demanded that some twelve companies pull their ads from her program. Rachael Ray’s pet food company, Nutrish, dutifully obeyed Hogg and announced on Twitter and Facebook they would pull their ads.
“We are in the process of removing our ads from Laura Ingraham’s program,” the company said on Twitter.

This didn’t sit too well with many, who promised to boycott the company.
R u kidding? Fascist liberals say a conservative host is “mean” and you pull ads ? We conservatives and Fox supporters buy pet food too and will be buying a lot less of yours . Hogg put it out there on dociak media that colleges rejected him yet to comment on it is forbidden? Sad

Switching brands now, I despise companies that get political regardless of which side they choose to demonize.
You’ve made your bed, now sleep in it.

Hogg’s followers naturally applauded the decision.
It’s not because of what “liberals” said. It’s because of what Laura Ingraham said…
She dug her own grave by picking on a kid who survived a school shooting diring which 17 of his mates died simply for being declined by a few colleges.

Actually, Ingraham didn’t pick on anyone, but facts mean nothing to the increasingly-insane left. This is the tweet that brought out Hogg’s inner fascist:
David Hogg Rejected By Four Colleges To Which He Applied and whines about it. (Dinged by UCLA with a 4.1 GPA…totally predictable given acceptance rates.) https://t.co/wflA4hWHXY

Many also expressed themselves on the company’s Facebook page.
“You just sealed your fate! If you boycott Laura Ingraham, we will boycott YOU!!!!! I will never buy from you again!” one person said.
“Boycott Nutrish!!!!” added another Facebook user.
“[S]ince you have caved and left sponsorship of the Laura Ingram (sic) show I will no longer be a customer of yours. I support those that support free speech,” said a third Facebook user.
And it continued:

One person said she was throwing out the food she had bought from the company.
Thanks 4 letting me know. I just tossed out the $40 in dog food I just bought, into the trash. As an immigrant, I have NO TOLERANCE 4 companies taking political stances especially regarding ones based ON LIES; or 4 co’s who allow kids 2 be used 4 politics. You lost my business.

This Twitter user hit the nail on the head.
Hogg, as we’ve noted repeatedly, has smeared millions of Americans, accused lawmakers of being “child murderers,” slandered NRA Spokeswoman Dana Loesch and made demonstrable false claims against the NRA.
He also engaged in a profane tirade in a video interview with The Outline, attacking “old a** parents” and declaring that he and his ilk know how to “use” democracy better than adults.
In short, Hogg has proven that he can dish it out in spades, but can’t take it.
Meanwhile, he has this tweet pinned to the top of his Twitter feed:
Can we please not debate this as Democrats and Republicans but discuss this as Americans? In the comments if you see someone you dissagree with do not attack each other talk to one another, this applies to me too. WE MUST WORK TOGETHER TO SAVE OUR FUTURE.
