WATCH: Parkland Student’s ‘Salute’ After Speech Causes Major Twitter Reaction

On Saturday, an enraged student from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School gave a fiery speech, and at its conclusion threw up a salute that ignited a firestorm on social media.

Far-left activist David Hogg attacked Republicans during his speech, saying, “I’m going to start off by putting this price tag right here as a reminder for you guys to know how much Marco Rubio took for every student’s life in Florida.”

Hogg continued with his Democratic talking points, stating, “Let’s put the USA over the NRA.”

Toward the end of his approximately four-minute speech, Hogg said, “Thank you. I love you all. God bless all of you and God bless America. We can and we will change the world!”

At that moment, Hogg threw up a salute that sent Twitter into a frenzy.

WATCH:

It is not clear what Hogg meant by his hand gesture, whether it was from some sort of past political movement or if it was just something he did spur of the moment.

Here are some of the reactions that people had to it:

Again, while it’s not clear what Hogg meant by his hand gesture, different media outlets like BuzzFeed News published clips of his entire speech, but specifically cut off the part where he makes the salute. Why edit it out?

    Gestures have variable meanings. The raised clenched fist raised aloft can mean brotherhood when two military veterans exchange the gesture. When done the raised clenched fist is generally held in a vertical position but variations occur dependent upon circumstances.

    Of course, the boys words speak volumes. I will interpret the boy’s gesture as one indicating solidarity among a group. The crazed mob referring to themselves as Antifa have been seen using that gesture along with the Che shirt wearing folks and the rag-tag motley crew proudly displaying the red Communist flag hearkening back to USSR days.

    I wonder if the tyrannical elites class, their corporate entities and the upper-class and politicians beholden to the money-wielding tyrannical elites/entities will make the skinny wimpy kid their poster boy for the continuous attempts to disarm the USA masses? The task requires “baby steps.” A little bit of this and a little bit of that then LO!!! A servile mass of commoners helpless against the elite overlords enforcement arms.

    On a side note: observe the diversity and multiculturalism in the boy’s high school. Then gaze across the USA and the ramifications to society and the USA as a whole deriving from the purposeful import of cultures, mores, religions, etc. from across the planet. That is a divide-and-conquer strategy assisting the efforts of tyrannical overlords to gain control over the masses of bickering quarreling common folks. A divided house can not stand!!! I believe my observations are not a conspiracy theory but an accurate view of the ongoing negative changes within the USA.

    These are contentious times that cry out for a new set of Founders to unite and guide American patriots to fight the growing tyranny confronting We, the People. The original Founders told us via their writings how to confront the ugly, evil head of tyranny when it arises. Where are those quality folks of the Founder’s quality to save the USA from continuing towards an abyss of destruction that may never be altered.

    Thank you for taking the time to read this essay. Please assist the growing number of patriots using the Web and real-life opportunities to counter the massive amount of propaganda spewed by the elite-owned media, tyrant-controlled public schooling and many other venues where an ultra-wealthy thus powerful tyrants can spread their greedy self-serving agendas into the minds of the masses. Their IS method behind their madness and looking at most parts of USA society their effectiveness is obvious. Fight the good fight, patriots. Critical times are confronting us.

    Democrats better jump on his bandwagon if they want to have a chance at winning any race this year. I don’t like Hoggs, but boy is he getting a lot of attention these days. Bad or good, he is getting a lot of free air time which is what the Democrats need.

    I hope Republicans will support his counterpart, Kyle Kashuv..who seems more mature, reasonable and well verse than Hogg.

    Sieg Hogg! Hoggers Revolt! Hogg Power! Just what is this commie-puppet boy trying to appropriate and promote? And what fool is grooming him? They are ratcheting this dipstick up so fast that he’ll either self-destruct or get killed. I’m betting they’ll kill him to create a ‘youth martyr’.
