Finally! CNN let’s us know David Hogg’s plans after high school

CNN loves them some David Hogg.

You know, who I’m talk about, right? He’s the Parkland School shooting survivor who is on their network more than Brian Stelter. But honestly, he’s probably more reliable than the ‘Reliable Sources’ host, so maybe that’s part of the reason.

Anyway, Mr. Hogg is the lad whose been the most out front and in your face about guns, gun laws, the NRA, saying lawmakers have literal blood on their hands, organizing protests and other pleasantries.

Hogg also believes his parents “don’t know how to use a “f**king” democracy.”

So, you know he’s seems like a perfectly pleasant, reasonable young man.

CNN, “the most trusted name in news,” is without a doubt the primary, if not the sole reason, Hogg has gained so much fame and notoriety.

CNN’s Alliysn Camerota was absolutely incredulous when she learned that any college could turn away their media darling, exclaiming “what kind of dumbass colleges don’t want you?”

Well, now thanks to CNN we now know Hogg won’t be attending any “dumbass” colleges, at least for the next year.  What will the left’s intolerable poster child being doing for the next year?  Well, don’t you worry, he, just like to resident sane person and “comedian” Chelsea Handler, will be making our democracy even better.

How selfless of the lad!

Listen, this isn’t so much about Hogg as it is CNN. Hogg doesn’t realize he’s being used by those pushing gun control and the media. He’s lapping up all the fame and honestly, what 17-year-old kid wouldn’t like being told how great they are and how brave they are for holding opinions that the media elite hold.

Feeling it necessary to tell us what Hogg plans to do after high school just kind of shows where CNN’s credibility is at this point. Next to zero.

Perhaps CNN will tell us what he plans to do for the weekend? What his parents get him for his 18th birthday?

CNN, please do keep us informed! You know, “the most trusted named in news.”

Sexist Liberal Men Ridicule Dana Loesch Over Hairstyle

What is it about our society that we focus more on how a woman is dressed, her size, or how she wore her hair than on what she has to say?

Dana Loesch was ridiculed on Twitter by a bunch of leftist men who thought her top knot was stupid. Loesch normally wears her hair down but went for an updo on her new NRA TV show, Relentless, and instead of focusing on what she was actually saying, these sexist pigs decided to insult her new do.

This is a common hair style for women, and an easy fix for a bad hair day. Not sure why wearing her hair in a bun was so triggering for these men.

Dana’s response was to shake it off and say she’d probably wear it up again today, too.

 

 

Advertisers bend to the will of a high school student

Advertisers are caving and bending to the will of a high school student.

Yesterday, conservative radio and Fox News host, Laura Ingraham, tweeted out a message about Parkland school shooting survivor David Hogg being rejected from college.

That’s what she tweeted. Nothing less, nothing more.

Was it the smartest thing to do? Probably not. But it’s not awful.

Well, Mr. Hogg, liberal hero of the moment, was incredibly offended. Not only demanding an apology from Ingraham, but he started going after her advertisers.

And you know what, those companies began caving, giving into the demands of a high school student.

But the story doesn’t stop there. Ingraham apologized for her “insensitive” tweet. However, that turned out not to be enough for Hogg, he is now demanding an apology from an entire network.

Yes, the same kid that said Sen. Marco Rubio had blood on his hands, that also said radio host Dana Loesch was a propagandist for the NRA and calling her disgusting, wants an apology from entire network.

I understand he’s been through a horrible, horrible thing. But this kid is taking his 15 minutes a little far. You can’t accuse a sitting senator of being directly responsible for the deaths of 17 people and then claim the moral high ground, demanding an apology.

Seriously, is  where we are in 2018? If so, it’s a sad, sad place.

David Hogg: The NRA are “Pathetic F***ers that Want to Keep Killing our Children.”

David Hogg, one of the survivors of the Parkland school shooting and founder of the Never Again movement, had some very choice words about the NRA and pro-gun politicians.

Watch this interview with The Outline. WARNING: EXPLICIT LANGUAGE.

“Our parents don’t know how to use a f***ing democracy, so we have to.”

“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.”

David Hogg is seventeen years old. What he went through is horrific and no child should have to experience it. But that’s just it – he’s still very young and yet he acts like he’s an expert on everything.

He’s been extremely disrespectful to NRA spokesperson Dana Loesch.

He thinks he’s an expert on everything from voter ID laws to the security of our election.

And he’s even a journalist and documentary film maker!

Sadly what he and the rest of the Parkland students (yes, even Kyle Kashuv, the 2A supporter) don’t see is that all these kids are to politicians are pawns to be used for whatever agenda they support.

And the media needs to stop treating them as if they’re some sort of school shooting survivor celebrities. They’re still just kids and instead of flying around on private jets and shaking hands with the people using them to drum up votes, they should be working through what happened and thinking about returning to school.

They’re not experts and they shouldn’t be treated as such by either side.

And after that profanity laced interview, David Hogg’s parents need to teach him an appropriate approach to public speaking – people take you more seriously when you speak intelligently.

(Maybe wash his mouth out with soap too.)

Broward Co. Sheriff Israel doesn’t seem to understand ‘leadership’

The debate following the deadly Florida school shooting rages on, which is to be expected any time that many people senselessly lose their lives. And as is always the case following a tragedy such as this, the media and others begin screaming about increased gun control measures.

In the days following the shooting, the NRA and its spokeswoman, Dana Loesch, have received a ton of criticism, essentially blaming them for the shooting of the 17 people in that Florida school.  Businesses have also begun ending discounts for members of the NRA. Listen, that’s perfectly acceptable. Private businesses have the right to do whatever they please. But let’s remember, we also have the right to patronize other businesses, as well.

First, the FBI admitted that they ignored a Jan. 5th tip about Nikolas Cruz and they did absolutely nothing about the situation.

However, the most interesting developments since the shooting have to be the failures on the part of the Broward County Sheriff’s Department.

First, we learned there were repeated calls made about Nikolas Cruz and his odd and disturbing behavior. What happened? Nothing. Then we heard about at least one and as many as possibly four Broward County deputies failed to enter the school when the shooting was taking place.

But, for whatever reason, the Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel seems not to be able to grasp the basic concept of the word leadership.

In the above clip, Sheriff Israel mentions that he is not ultimately responsible for an individual’s actions. That he had done everything possible to prepare that so and so was ready for the fight, but if they choose not to go in, well hey, that ain’t my fault.

No sir, leadership is standing up and taking responsibility for the successes or failures of an organization. Leadership is stepping up and admitting failures, whether they be yours or not. Leadership isn’t using the NRA as a scapegoat for your failures. It’s being man or woman enough to admit when your organization failed and accepting the consequences whatever they may be.

If a company falters, loses stockholders’ money, it’s the CEO who ultimately pays the price, usually with his or her job. If the country isn’t performing at a level that the electorate believes it should be, a change in leadership in the White House is made.

Point is sir, taking responsibility for the actions of those beneath you is what leadership is all about. The voters elected you to do a job, to carry out those duties and it appears that you failed them miserably. To act as if you have absolutely no responsibility in this ugly, devastating outcome is incredibly absurd and appalling.

Why you continue to refuse say that you’ve provided excellent leadership and refuses to resign is baffling.

What happened in Florida that day was horrible, ugly and awful. There is still plenty of healing and pain to come in the coming days.

There are certainly legislative solutions that could and should happen. People must learn from their mistakes and failures in this case in order to hope this doesn’t happen again in the future.

However, responsibility for those failures and mistakes must be taken and a big part of that healing process is for Broward County Sheriff Israel to step down.

Celebrities Band Together to #RejectTheNRA

Some of Hollywood’s top entertainers have come together to urge you to text REJECT to 644-33, which will connect you to Everytown for Gun Safety (surprise, surprise) and they will connect you to your representatives so you can tell them you “reject the NRA’s radical agenda.” They’ll even help you with the right words to say!

In the PSA, big names like Melissa McCarthy, Julianne Moore, Adam Scott, Emma Stone and Elizabeth Banks can be seen calling their congressmen and telling them to oppose the SHARE Act which  “could make mass shootings even more deadly” by “rolling back gun silencer safety laws.”

They also oppose concealed reciprocity legislation, which would allow gun owners to carry firearms across state lines.

The PSA, which is (not surprisingly) sponsored by Everytown and Moms Demand Action, is spearheaded by Moore, who began working with Everytown in 2015. She plans to ‘send one million phone calls to Congress until the next vote in 2018 to urge representatives to reject the agenda of the National Rifle Association.’

Because, you know, somehow the NRA is responsible for people committing crimes.

You’d think that in light of what’s coming out of Hollywood with the Weinstein scandal, that these celebrities would be in favor of people, especially women, arming themselves to protect against the sexual predators in their own circles.

Not to mention that many of these celebrities PROFIT off of action movies where they seem to have no problem using a gun when the role requires it.

Dana Loesch Gets Apology from Yashar Ali; Called “Terrorist” by Kathleen Rice

Dana Loesch has been brutally attacked the last couple weeks by journalists (and now even a congresswoman) on the left who claim she uses the word “fist” instead of “fisk” in this NRA ad.

Fisk, in case you didn’t know, basically means to fact check and in the ad, Loesch calls for fact-checking of the NY Times. The NRA video series is called “Clenched Fist of Truth.” As you can imagine, things got nasty on Twitter toward Loesch AND liberals claimed she was inciting violence against the newspaper.

However, Yashar Ali of New York Magazine, Huff Post and Mother Jones decided things had gone a bit too far and issued this apology to Loesch yesterday.

Dana graciously accepted his apology.

But before the dust settled on the previous attack from Ali, she was then dealt ANOTHER blow from New York Congresswoman, Kathleen Rice, who decided to call Dana and ALL members of the NRA domestic security threats under the Trump administration.

Conservative women like Loesch are increasingly being attacked by members of the left, especially those who strongly support the Second Amendment. Calling Dana and ALL members of the NRA terrorists is completely outrageous and infuriating.

Many NRA members are former and current members of our military. More importantly, they are LEGAL gun owners who follow their state regulations for buying and carrying firearms.

Rice should apologize to Dana and the millions of NRA (and non-NRA) gun owners she just insulted. However, according to a statement from her spokesperson,  it doesn’t look like that will be happening anytime soon.

#IStandWithDana.
