David Hogg Tweets About America’s Democracy — Gets Hilariously Fact-Checked

Hogg is once again proving there is a difference between having an Ivy League degree and being actually educated.

He has once again taken to Twitter to spew baseless ridiculous talking points.

In the old days of Twitter his BS would have been spewed into the public consciousness with impunity.

But this is the Musk-era Twitter. The rebranded-to-‘X’ era of Twitter. And the rules have changed.

When you spew bullsh^t like Hogg’s, people have a way to call you on it a way that can’t just be ‘blocked’ when it raises uncomfortable facts… and one that attaches directly to the tweet itself.

Here’s how that dynamic played out for him yesterday.

The tweet:

And the screenshot, in case he deletes it:

We can’t help but notice how consistently the Democrats oppose aspects of the election that make sure each eligible citizen resident in a given voting area can vote precisely once (like ID or clean voter rolls) while maximizing points of weakness that could be exploited by bad actors (like mail-in ballots, signature verification rules, and counting ballots received after election day).

It’s almost as if they are protecting some kind of a strategy in which they game the system somehow. Strange, isn’t it?

The fact-checkers linked to a Pew Research article debunking Hogg’s claim. Here is the key information right at the top of that article:

More than half of all countries and territories have compulsory voter registration. Though the exact policy varies from one place to another, 122 of the 226 countries and territories in the ACE Electoral Knowledge Network have some form of compulsory voter registration. In Argentina, Chile, Hungary, Israel, the Netherlands and elsewhere, such registration is automatic, based on government records such as census counts. In other cases, qualified residents are required to register themselves. Failing to register is punishable by a fine in some places, including New Zealand, Tonga and the United Kingdom.

Another 90 countries and territories have no laws requiring all qualified residents to register to vote, though registration may be required in order to vote. In India – the world’s largest democracy – and Mongolia, voter rolls are compiled automatically through census data collection, though registration is not compulsory. In Austria, voter registration and voting itself were compulsory in at least one province until 2004; today, there is no requirement to register or to vote in Austrian elections. There is no compulsory voter registration in the U.S., though registration is necessary in order to vote in nearly all states and U.S. territories (North Dakota does not have voter registration). — Pew Research

Face it, David. You are a professional propagandist whose one job as an activist is to make up ‘facts’ to push your team’s most ridiculous policy goals.

Since you trade in lies and aren’t interested in facts and rebuttals, let’s give him an answer in a language he can understand…

Although this would assume Hogg has any idea who Nelson Mandela is… and that might be giving him too much credit.

Psalms of War: Prayers That Literally Kick Ass is a collection, from the book of Psalms, regarding how David rolled in prayer. I bet you haven’t heard these read, prayed, or sung in church against our formidable enemies — and therein lies the Church’s problem. We’re not using the spiritual weapons God gave us to waylay the powers of darkness. It might be time to dust them off and offer ‘em up if you’re truly concerned about the state of Christ’s Church and of our nation.

Also included in this book, Psalms of War, are reproductions of the author’s original art from his Biblical Badass Series of oil paintings.

This is a great gift for the prayer warriors. Real. Raw. Relevant.
