Why I Find David Hogg Pathetic

Posted by Troy on 29th March 2018 in Current Events, Political

We raise our fist in the air in celebration of violence!

People are “upset” that people are eluding to that he is Hitler.  They say “Look, Hitler’s hand is flat.  David clearly has his hand in the raised fist, the symbol of rebellion.  How dare you?”

I dare because the raise fist is saying, “Accept my worldview, or this fist is going to be in your face.”  It is the clear comment that there will be no persuasion.   The only discussion there will be is them telling you their view.  If you don’t see the wisdom of their words, there will be violence.  Such is the way of fascists.

Take the recent events.

The boy was complaining that he was changing the world and couldn’t get into his school of choice.  Laura Ingram commented that he didn’t have the scholastic aptitude to get into that particular school.  So what did he do?  Did he fight his own battle and engage her?  Nope!  He called upon the mindless mob.  “Boycott her sponsors!”

Look, kid…the sting of the rebuke is in its truth.  I wouldn’t have apologized to you.  She shouldn’t have apologized to you.  You have been a disrespectful brat.  Hell, if I acted that way when I was his age, my dad would have done the single worst thing I could imagine… He would have looked at me and said, “I am disappointed in you.”  You are a foul-mouth, ill-mannered brat.  That is the truth.  You were poorly raised.  Instead of standing up like a man, you summoned others to fight for you.

I will go one step further than Laura.  I don’t believe he is the least bit upset by the death of his classmates.  I don’t pick up anything that reads of sincere anguish in his mannerisms or his voice.  I only pick up a self-assured entitlement.  I firmly believe that he saw the events as his chance to launch himself into fame, get into his choice school, and eventually become a pundit or anchor.  I have no proof, but that’s how I read this kid.

You can say, “‘Awww, but he’s just a kid!  You can’t talk that way about him after what he went through!”

Well, which is it?  Is he a traumatized kid that doesn’t have wisdom or maturity?  Or is he some wise shaman, showing us the error of our ways?  You can’t have it both ways.  Either he’s a stupid kid, and you are using him to press your agenda, or he’s a man of wisdom.  He can’t be a man of wisdom when he’s telling us to abandon a Constitutional right and a traumatized child when we respond to his attacks on our freedom.

Now, why I think he’s pathetic.  I was bullied when I was young.  But I fought back with my wits and with my fist (when the bullying was of a physical nature).  I had a teacher growing up.  When the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor.  He lied about his age and fought at Iwo Jima when he was sixteen.  What does this kid do?  He insults.  He condescends.  He speaks in show-trials with a packed audience and friendly press.  He never puts himself on dangerous ground.  Whenever someone offers him the least bit of of a challenge, he calls upon others to fight his fights, to destroy them.  That is why he is pathetic, just like all fascists.

Long Live the Constitution!
