If Hogg’s approach to criticism is representative of his generation as a whole Americans would be even MORE foolish to give up their firearms than we first imagined.

The old rules, when someone offended you, were to either ignore them, or give a response.

Depending on the situation, that might be a joke, a metaphorical middle finger, or (if they’re worth the time and trouble) a reasoned breakdown of where they got it wrong.

That sounds like work.

Especially when it’s easier to just destroy the reputation or even livelihood of the person who offended you.

Laura Ingram (Fox) managed to offend Hogg. (I know, hard to imagine such a mellow and level-headed guy being upset about something, but it’s true.)

Here’s her offending tweet.

She was hardly the most insulting social media comment directed at his complaining about being rejected by schools. Saw a suggestion to attend “STFU”, for example, but haven’t been able to find it again.

So, what did the Social media darling do? Did he book an appearance on her show to discuss it? Nope. But he is welcome there and has been there before. Did he tell people why she was wrong?

No. He knee-jerked to a far more totalitarian impulse. Destroy her livelihood.

No matter that he spouts the most calumnious garbage at anyone who doesn’t think his policies are straight from the mouth of God.

He was offended. So he set out to break something — her show.

And yes, at least some of the advertisers pulled out.

Those companies pulling their ads include TripAdvisor, Expedia, Hulu, Johnson & Johnson, Wayfair, Nestlé and Nutrish. A spokesman for TripAdvisor said the company doesn’t “condone the inappropriate comments made by this broadcaster. In our view, these statements focused on a high school student, cross the line of decency. ”

Don’t think he pulled this off without some help from the activist buddies that organized the march ‘with’ him.

Here’s her apology.

Here’s his ‘gracious’ response. (As you read it, keep in mind how he has been standing behind his youth and victim status to make hyperbolic and bogus accusations against the people and organizations he’s decided to target/destroy.)

Either he’s a child, and should not be taken seriously, or he’s an adult, and is big enough to take some criticism. Which is it? The goalposts keep shifting.

If a whole generation is rising up that would rather silence dissent than engage it… let’s just say we’ve seen that movie before.

The folks who ‘dig’ that sort of thing tend to wave red flags and talk about revolution.

His ‘pinned tweet’ is getting harder and harder to take seriously.

I dunno. All his backers are hard left activists. Does he have their permission to do so? Or would they just pick a different ‘face’ of the movement?

Without meaning to, he just gave a stronger argument AGAINST citizens giving up guns than anything else he’s done to support it.

The Effeminization Of The American Male

One thing that increasingly unites men and women? We can both agree that Liberals are losing their ever-loving minds. Now there’s a shirt that says just that.

Conveniently available in Both Ladies…

AND Men’s versions.

Either Liberals just don’t get it, or they are sick in the head. Probably both. Think about it: They want to have all of the blessings that come with living in a capitalist society such as modern medicine and technology. But they believe in socialism, which stifles innovation and progress.

They want to be protected by the police and the military, but they attack and criticize the men and women who protect us. They call conservatives “racists,” but it’s their own identity politics that have created race problems in the first place. After all, Democrats were the party of slavery!

They attack hunters, but have no problem wearing leather shoes or owning cars with leather upholstery! And of course, they believe guns kill people. Not the people that pull the trigger.

Well, here’s a shirt that sums it perfectly. Liberalism is a… MENTAL DISORDER.

And the best part? This shirt is made in the USA, printed in the USA, on an American-Made t-shirt press!

Ladies, get yours here.
