David Hogg Gets Upset When His Rights Are Taken Away Because of One Person

It’s usually difficult not to feel sympathetic for the survivor of a mass shooting. David Hogg has somehow, sadly, managed to accomplish this difficult task.

Whether it’s through debasing the national conversation about guns and gun safety, pretending that surviving a shooting makes him a bona fide public policy expert, allowing himself to be politicized in the most cynical of ways, using victimhood as form of naked self-promotion or doing so in the most confrontational and obnoxious way possible, Hogg has established himself not just as an enemy of Second Amendment supporters but of civilized debate.

This isn’t to say that he’s wrong on everything. Like a number of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School survivors, Hogg is upset that the Broward County Public Schools’ superintendent’s solution to stopping violence is taxpayer-supported clear backpacks and school ID badges, as he made clear during a gun control forum Friday.

However, Hogg isn’t against it just because it’s dumb (although it is dumb).

He’s against it because — get this — it violates his constitutional rights.

“One of the other important things to realize is many students want their privacy,” Hogg said. “There are many, for example, females in our school that when they go through their menstrual cycle, they don’t want people to see their tampons and stuff.”

“It’s unnecessary, it’s embarrassing for a lot of the students and it makes them feel isolated and separated from the rest of American school culture where they’re having essentially their First Amendment rights infringed upon because they can’t freely wear whatever backpack they want regardless of what it is,” he continued.

“It has to be a clear backpack. What we should have is just more policies that make sure that these students are feeling safe and secure in their schools and not like they’re being fought against like it’s a prison.”

Wait — so constitutional rights aren’t negotiable in order to keep people safe? Or it’s just certain ones? I’m confused.

As I write this Saturday morning, there are likely to be hundreds of thousands of people — teenagers, mostly — lining up in the streets for the March for Our Lives, an event dedicated to anti-gun hysteria, a hysteria that has been whipped up in part by both Hogg and Everytown for Gun Safety, an astroturfed group started by Michael Bloomberg that believes the Second Amendment to be roughly as important as a discarded Kleenex.

On Saturday, these people will march so that legislators will do something, anything about guns. This will likely involve legislation, if passed, that could abrogate people’s rights under the Second Amendment. There’s no indication it’ll make a difference. But it’s in the name of safety.

Meanwhile, Hogg is being asked to wear a clear backpack in school. He says “(i)t’s unnecessary, it’s embarrassing for a lot of the students and it makes them feel isolated and separated from the rest of American school culture where they’re having essentially their First Amendment rights infringed upon because they can’t freely wear whatever backpack they want regardless of what it is.”

But you don’t really need that backpack, Mr. Hogg. What kind of American needs a backpack made out of opaque material? Your need to express yourself surely doesn’t override my need for safety.

Oh, and by the way, unlike the kind of gun laws Everytown thinks it can push, invasive school safety measures — metal detectors, drug-sniffing dogs, school uniforms and public school restrictions like those — have all mostly sailed through the courts.

The great irony here, however, is that David Hogg is only interested in constitutional protections when it affects his backpack. When it’s other people’s stuff, he’s not so interested. That’s not how the Constitution works. It was put together to protect the rights of every American, including rights that may be temporally unpopular.

And while I don’t agree with Hogg that the clear backpack idea is unconstitutional, I agree that it is useless, wasteful and distracting. Just like almost everything he and his cohort are proposing.

      Was thinking the same thing. This child doesn’t know what he is talking about. He is just a fast-talking tool for the Liberals. I’m willing to bet that his own mom and dad back home own a weapon or two. Hell, he IS a student and they are the ones doing all the school shootings… HE probably has a gun of his own!

    Please do your research before posting about Hogg. He had already graduated. He wasn’t there.

      I can’t find anything that says he graduated. Snopes and Factcheck both say he hasn’t. Can you help me find different please? Thanks

    Mr. Hogg, my second amendment rights are just as important as your 1rst amendment rights. Without the 2nd nothing guarantees the first!

    Hogg was not there and isn’t in high school , he lives in California . As for backpacks there is no right to have them in schools just ban the backpack problem solved . As for Hogg is it to late for him to be aborted .

    David Hogg, the student who shoots his mouth off on any subject, will wake up one day soon and find that no one wants to listen to his gibberish. Perhaps then he will take the time to actually read the constitution and do research on rights conferred by the constitution .

    Hogg is a tool to foment unrest in our children , to bring down our country. Something the NWO has not been able to do, but has probably spent billions trying.

    This is just the latest tantrum from Baltimore, to Fergusen, to Chicago, to Wall Street, to Women’s march to BLM to yadda yadda yadda.. to the kids. How low can they go? Or will go?

    This is just another useful idiot carrying the NAZI / Communist / NWO / Globalist agenda to destroy our country as it is the last one with guns.

    Quit giving him and his sister and cousin Press coverage. They will then go away.

    The attacks on schools has become events that are as long as each President time in office and for some reason it is now worse then ever or is it? This gives the Trump bashes ammunition. Why don’t the students and those other protesters look at solutions away from trying to change the Constitution. We in Australia could remove guns because it was not in our Constitution. Israel has a solution and it could be adapted to the USA safe school programmer if you want one?

      Australia did ‘remove guns’, but not ALL guns, as murders by guns are still happening there. But here’s a fun fact: After the Australian gun ban 22 years ago, mass shootings went down to zero, but murders… especially “bludgeoning” murders skyrocketed. It’s a matter of ‘where there’s a will, there’s a way’. Oh, and Australia still has knives (“now THAT’S a niofe”)… and knife murders.

      On my local news station, they made it a point to say that the 4 million dollars used to send all those idiots to Washington, was RAISED BY THE STUDENTS. Yeah, right… in one week. I’m sure those car-washes and bake sales really paid off THAT well. Soros is at the helm.

    Why are his parents allowing their son to make an idiot of himself? He curses and wants everyone else to make changes to their lives,but he is unwilling to do something as simple as wearing a clear backpack. He pretends to stand up for all students, but does not allow anyone who disagrees with his agenda to speak. Heil Hogg
