David Hogg should rethink his plan to start a pillow company.
It probably wouldn’t take off – after all, it's hard to make bedding that can absorb that many liberal tears. But it might keep him busy enough that he doesn’t travel all the way to Washington, D.C. to heckle members of Congress about “assault rifles” he knows nothing about.
The 22-year-old Parkland shooting survivor-turned-professional anti-gun activist was escorted out of a congressional hearing Wednesday after screaming at a Republican congressman who said Americans living in border towns had a right to keep and bear semi-automatic firearms for protection against dangerous illegal aliens crossing into the U.S. unlawfully.
“You are reiterating the points of mass shooters in your manifesto,” Hogg began yelling at Rep. Andy Biggs, a Republican from Arizona. “The shooter at my high school [was] antisemitic, anti-Black and racist! The shooter in El Paso described it as an invasion!"
"Guess what, those guns are coming from the United States of America. They aren’t coming from Mexico,” he continued.
Notably, Hogg is partially correct: weapons more often flow from the U.S. and into Mexico rather than the other way around – a problem that Obama might know a little something about.
Hogg then posted a video – which coincidentally does not include Biggs’ remarks – of himself shouting at the committee before being removed from the room by security.
The guns in Parkland, Buffalo, El Paso, didn't come from Mexico. They came from the US, and the shooters were inspired by racist, anti-black, anti-immigrant manifestos that rhyme with GOP talking points. pic.twitter.com/0D4QbHvu1t— David Hogg ☮️ (@davidhogg111) July 20, 2022
Yep – I’m still thinking the pillow company route might be Hogg’s best bet. On the other hand, lunacy can be a lot of fun to watch.
