Whenever there’s a lull in the news cycle, just check David Hogg’s social media activity. The dude’s a goldmine of stupidity.
In a hilariously uninformed tweet earlier this week, Hogg demonstrated a command of logic as weak as his chin in arguing that politicians have no right to defend America’s sovereignty because, well, we’re all just descendants of genocidal white colonialists.
It’s so ironic how many politicians’ ancestors came here through open borders, stole land, and killed indigenous people, and now call people that come to the United States the same way illegal.Notice: The WPP_Query class has been deprecated since 5.0.0.

I don’t have enough caffeine in my system to properly address the stupidity of that statement, so allow me to phone in a GIF, y’all:
Thankfully, the People of Twitter™ were there to set Mr. Hogg straight, including Trump supporter and Dilbert creator, Scott Adams:
How did open borders work out for the indigenous people? https://t.co/K5fSQbct84

In fact, the real irony here is that Hogg’s statement actually makes a great case for securing our borders, as this dude noted:
Native Americans failed to secure their boarders. We should learn from their mistake.

Then, this dude went for the jugular:
Reminder: Harvard is on “Stolen Land”. Craft your letter turning them down immediately, “white person”.

As for Hogg’s myopic view of the first European settlers in the Americas, this dude’s got you covered:
Mine came legally and made this country what it is. My god, grow up.

Then there’s this dude who very kindly offered Hogg a bit of branding advice:
Incredible. Making a strong case against open borders and people illegally entering other countries while simultaneously advocating for the people who do it. 🧐
I have a new tagline for you…

Right, so..the law program at Harvard may not be for you.

No, probably not!
Of course, Hogg’s only response to the education he received (which, presumably is far better and cheaper than what Harvard could ever offer), was to drop an f-bomb and complain about racist white folks.
Lord help us if this dude ever gets the idea to run for office.
