Back in April I warned people about David Hogg.
He is not the kind of “spokesman” I would want representing me (and I suspect many people of very different political persuasions than me even feel the same way.)
I attempted to delicately show how he was talking about HIS OWN parents pretty disrespectfully (“disrespectfully” too mild a term here) for those that may not know.
That warning from me was in this post . . .
Unfortunately the Youtube site I linked to is now gone and you cannot see David Hogg talk about his parents this way.
Why is it important?
Because if you are going to use Hogg for a spokesman, you need to know who he is. (A bull in a china shop comes to mind).
So these quotes/links are still going to be genteel for internet discussion, but a little less delicate than I wanted . . .
“When your old-a** parent is like, ‘I don’t know how to send an iMessage,’ and you’re just like, ‘Give me the ****ing phone and let me handle it.’ Sadly, that’s what we have to do with our government; our parents don’t know how to use a ****ing democracy, so we have to.”–David Hogg
Here is another aspect of this one but I will hide the front page by word linking it here.
And one more . . .
Well Hogg is now back in the news and not in a good way.
Hogg is attacking Nancy Pelosi in a manner even I (who don’t agree politically with many of Congresswoman Pelosi’s ideas) would think is waaay out of bounds.
You can say what you want about Congresswoman Pelosi needing to step aside, but I thought this was a very inappropriate and wreckless admonition from Hogg.
Guys like Hogg don’t just “eat their own” (in my opinion by his actions). They tend to be very self-destructive in the long run.
If I were a liberal Democrat, I would ALSO be bothered by how Hogg frequently implicitly thinks (evidence = actions) he has the authority to speak for other liberal Democrats (“let US . . .”, not "let me" . . . Sometimes that is OK. But Hogg seems to overplay his ability to speak on behalf of others in my estimation anyway).
