There are a plethora of fronts in the new war on the Second Amendment, and the left flank of our right to bear arms is currently under attack by a mysterious newcomer to politics.
This man is David Hogg – a survivor of the Parkland, Florida school shooting who has had a meteoric rise to prominence in the ensuing weeks.
Hogg, from the get go seemed a bit dubious. Not only was he entirely too well spoken and unemotional to truly convey the grief that someone in his position would surely be burdened with, but he was found to have been already “camera tested” during a story on the west coast just a month or so earlier in which Hogg described a strange confrontation between a body-boarding local and a police officer on the beach.
The conspiracy theorists of America were having a heyday at this point, working cockamamy allegations of Hogg’s FBI father being one of those on the “inside” of whatever grand Machiavellian scheme the loons are peddling now.
Hogg, to his own twisted credit, has made quite the star of himself, while standing on the back of his slain classmates. His pointed features and perfect hair, however off-putting they would be in high school, are completely at home amongst the angular-jawed pundits of the mainstream shill media.
The kid is, oddly, a natural. It is this puzzle piece fitting all too nicely that has armchair sleuths chomping at the bit.
On his stage, Hogg has made some bold claims, and launched vicious attacks on those who dare to oppose him. In one such rant, Hogg called for a boycott of the last remaining businesses who were still working in concert with the NRA, with Fedex being one of the larger businesses named.
“Last week, in the wake of the shooting at a Florida high school that left 17 people dead, people on social media pressured companies that offer special deals to NRA members to cut ties with the gun-rights organization.
“While companies including United, Hertz, and MetLife have done so, FedEx, which offers NRA members discounts of up to 26% on shipping packages, has not.
“Now, gun-control activists are doubling down on their efforts.
“‘So how else should we pressure @FedEx to end their relationship with the NRA?’ tweeted David Hogg, a student at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School who has since emerged as a leading voice on gun control.”
In their defiance of the leftist pressure, Fedex has found themselves a windfall, however, defiantly downplaying the perceived importance of David Hogg’s contribution to the national discourse.
Supporters of the company are doubling down on Twitter and around the internet, most notably at Reddit’s r/The_Donald subreddit, where yesterday’s rise in Fedex stock prices was directed right back at the precocious young opportunist from Florida.
