Anti-Gun Activist David Hogg Makes Apology For Condemning Non-White Violence: ‘It’s Not My Place’

If it wasn’t already clear to you that we live in a world that has been flipped upside down, where right is wrong and wrong is right, then allow me to provide you with some hardcore evidence to help open your eyes to just how backwards things are in our culture.

There’s plenty to choose from, but the latest example comes from anti-gun activist and Parkland shooting survivor David Hogg, who recently made some comments stating violent political revolution isn’t a great idea. He seemed to be including non-white acts of violence like rioting, looting, and other activities done by Antifa and Black Lives Matter over the last few months.

And then he backtracked his reasonable comments to say “it’s not my place” to condemn non-white acts of violence.

So it’s totally cool for individuals who are people of color or minorities to loot, riot, and burn their neighborhoods down. But not white people. This stuff give anyone else a headache?

“Young people can stage a nonviolent political revolution over the coming decade but it will require all of us voting in consistently high # EVERY election, protesting, organizing and running for office and most importantly the persistence, love and community to overcome setbacks,” Hogg tweeted on Monday morning. “To do so we must all practice the humility, kindness and grace to be the political leaders we need to be in order to create such change.”

“We must not fall for the slander espoused by those in power that says violence will solve our problems, they only say that so they can have an excuse to grow their authoritarianism. I have seen how violence and hate destroys lives and communities- it is not the answer,” he continued. “The use of violence to acquire political power is deeply rooted in imperialism, capitalism and white supremacy[.] I personally refuse to believe that the use of this same violence will ever create nonviolent systems of government that represent and support everyone.”

Hogg went on to later offer some clarification, saying that his comments are only directed at “young white people” who have used the protests and riots as “cover” to loot, vandalize, and destroy stores and attack others. He said that “BIPOC” – an acronym standing for black, indigenous, and people of color – are exempt from his statement condemning violence. He apparently made the correction after a number of his followers criticized him for not separating violent acts committed by white and non-white people.

“This is directed specifically at the young white people I see arming themselves or wanting to so they can go and loot and act in antagonistic ways against the state trying to use allyship as a cover,” Hogg stated. “Let me be clear what I am NOT trying to do is tell BIPOC people how they should react to violence directed at them by the state. It’s not my place or any white persons to direct or criticize the way BIPOC people choose to defend themselves against this violence from the state.”

“I am sorry for how understandably anyone could have misinterpreted what was said,” the anti-gun activist continued. “I appreciate those that have called me out and let me know how this tweet was offensive and I am welcome to continuing to learn. Many are understandably upset and offended and I have have (sic) to do my part in admitting to mistakes when I make them and supporting my friends.”

Hogg is the prime example of the kind of citizen the progressive movement is hoping to create through the indoctrination happening in public schools. A loyal Marxist to the end, dedicated to the cause of expanding government power, wrongly believing that “elites” put in positions of power and given ultimate authority will fix all of the world’s problems.

Even though some basic critical thinking would completely and totally unravel his worldview, Hogg continues to press on into ignorance because it’s what he’s been brainwashed to do. He’s being rewarded with a career and good money so why would he bite the hand that feeds?

Folks, this the kind of thinking we’re up against. This is why it’s critical to get the federal government out of education.
