Parkland shooting survivor David Hogg his most insane demand yet during his latest media appearance.
Ever since last month’s mass shooting in Parkland, Florida, Hogg has become a mainstream media celebrity as he has gone on countless shows to call for gun control. Now that he feels the public’s interest in him waning, however, Hogg is resorting to making increasingly unhinged demands to keep himself relevant.
The U.K. Independent reported that during a Twitter livestream on Tuesday, Hogg called on young people to use their “white privilege” to make sure that the stories of other students across the country who experience gun violence are also heard.
“There is a lot of racial disparity in the way that this is covered,” Hogg said of last month’s shooting. “If this happened in a place of lower socioeconomic status, or a….black community, no matter how well those people spoke, I don’t think the media would cover it the same.”
“And I think it’s important that we point that out as Americans and realise that,” he continued. “Because, we have to use our white privilege now to make sure that all of the voices that….all of the people that have died as a result of this and haven’t been covered the same can be heard. It’s sad, but true.”
Clearly, Hogg is well aware of the fact that the mainstream media loves to make everything about race, so he us resorting to race-baiting just to make sure the media keeps putting him on TV. However, Hogg is ignoring another group of people the mainstream media ignores: young people who are pro-gun. New studies have shown that the majority of millennials are actually pro-Second Amendment, but Hogg has tried to downplay these statistics as much as possible.
Mad World News reported that host Joe Scarborough blindsided Hogg by bringing up a recent study that found that the majority of millennials are actually conservative when it comes to guns.
“It is interesting, though, we had John Della Volpe from Harvard Institute of Politics talking about polling numbers that I’ve seen before that are fascinating, that Millennial voters, while more progressive on just about every other issue, actually are more conservative when it comes to guns,” Scarborough said. “What message do you have, instead of just to elected leaders, what message do you have to your own generation and other millennials who are more conservative than most would expect on this issue?”
Scarborough was referring to a recent poll that concluded that, “Respondents aged 18-29 are the least likely in the country to support a renewed ban on assault weapons, at 49 percent, a fact that has helped drive nationwide support down to a record low. Pew’s data suggest that those falling in the youngest age range have dropped the furthest in support for ‘gun control’ since 2000 (when the alternative is presented as ‘gun rights’).”
Hogg did not like being confronted with these facts, and he immediately had a full meltdown.
“One thing I think is important to remember about those polls is conservative students and conservative people in the Millennial generation are typically a lot more politically active, so the polls may be biased in that way because many students that have more liberal views may just not partake in them,” Hogg said. “So there may be a skew in the polls that way.”
