Hogg decided to postpone his first year of college to work on November's midterm elections. He has said he has his eyes on running for political office in the future, and has expressed support for progressive causes and candidates such as Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, calling the New York congressional candidate a "future president of the United States."

    Activist David Hogg talks of his generation of gun controllers in a NYMag cover story, then thinks of Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and says, “Move the f**k off the plate and let us take control.” NYMag indicates Hogg is wearied by the “old” Democrats who keep hanging onto their offices. He mentioned Pelosi in particular, and said pointedly, “Nancy Pelosi is old.”

    David Hogg, one of the powerful young activists who recently graduated from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, has dreams of one day running for Congress. In an in-depth profile of the 18-year-old, New York Magazine's Daily Intelligencer reports that not only does Hogg want to enter politics, but he plans to do so soon — when he turns 25 years old. Since the February 14 mass shooting at his high school in Parkland, Florida where 17 people were killed, Hogg's joined forces with fellow classmates like Emma González and Cameron Kasky to call for stricter gun control policies

    As summer comes to a close and kids start going back to school, there is one school getting more media attention than most others. Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, the site of the February 14 shooting, is in the spotlight as teens from the Parkland, Florida, community began a new school year this week. This past Tuesday — August 14 — also marked six months since the shooting, putting that subject at the forefront of everyone’s minds. Several teens from the school spent their summer as teen activists, both locally and nationally. Some students even took their “March For Our...

    The National Rifle Association taunted gun control activist David Hogg and his group’s Saturday protest at its Fairfax, Virginia, headquarters by noting his security. “Today, @davidhogg111 (with armed security) and a bunch of gun-grabbing activists protested our empty HQ,” the gun-rights organization wrote on Twitter on Saturday night. Today, @davidhogg111 (with armed security) and a bunch of gun-grabbing activists protested our empty HQ, and there were some interesting people there.

    To his enemies online and elsewhere, gun-safety advocate and recent high-school graduate David Hogg can be seen as a pesky mosquito that happens to be buzzing into a microphone for the world to hear. In the four months since a mass shooting at Hogg’s high school rekindled the gun debate in the United States, the sharp-tongued Hogg has become a leading voice of the student-led Never Again movement — and a lightning rod for contempt from opponents on the right. That wasn’t an accident, he says. In a new mini-memoir written by Hogg and his 15-year-old sister, Lauren, a rising...

    Laura Ingraham’s Fox News program saw its highest-rated month ever in June despite two advertiser boycotts led by Parkland shooting survivor David Hogg. “The Ingraham Angle” earned 2.654 million total viewers per night last month — the highest the show has seen since it launched in late October, The Wrap reported Tuesday. Ms. Ingraham thanked her viewers and production team in a tweet Tuesday afternoon. This after Mr. Hogg, an 18-year-old anti-gun activist, renewed his call for a boycott against Ms. Ingraham last month after she compared migrant child detention centers to “summer camps.”

    Survivors of the mass shootings at Pulse nightclub and Parkland are planning to pressure Walt Disney Co. to withdraw its support of self-described “NRA sellout” Adam Putnam by holding a “die-in” at a Disney property sometime this month. National Die-In, a group co-founded by Parkland survivors, is in the early stages of organizing the demonstration where protesters lie in a corpse-like pose to emphasize the effect of shooting massacres. The protest would be at a Disney headquarters or Orlando theme park. “We want to keep doing these protests to show people we aren’t backing down,” Nurah Abdulhaqq, a Georgia teen...

    Fort Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel ^ | June 8, 2018 | Erika Pesantes
    They’re bogus 911 calls with real consequences— and public figures or celebrities are often the victims. This week, 18-year-old activist David Hogg in Parkland and fellow #NeverAgain student leader Cameron Kasky in West Delray were targeted by swatting calls, according to authorities in Broward and Palm Beach counties. Named after the response by police SWAT squads who respond to the calls, false 911 callers often describe emergencies involving barricaded gunmen or hostages in an attempt to draw heavily-armed officers. These fake 911 callers often spoof a victim’s phone, making it appear as though the victim is placing the emergency call.

    Deputies recently swarmed a suburban Delray Beach neighborhood, the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office put its chopper in the air and called out its SWAT team. Then they learned they were responding to a fake 911 call. It's called "swatting" and it happened Wednesday. The 911 caller said there was a stabbing and a hostage situation. It turns out the day before the Broward County Sheriff's Office received a similar call and now the two incidents may be connected. "We had to deploy a lot of resources down there including putting a SWAT team in that direction. Turned out, it...

    David Hogg might not want to hold his breath while waiting for that $1 million donation from Publix. Two weeks after the 18-year-old student activist called on Publix to atone for supporting a pro-National Rifle Association candidate by sending $1 million to the Parkland victims’ fund, the grocery chain has shown no indication that it plans to do so. Publix spokeswoman Nicole Krauss confirmed that the company has not donated to the crowdfunding account, but highlighted the firm’s public-service activities at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, scene of the deadly Feb. 14 shooting. “While we have...

    With Parkland high school graduate David Hogg expected to announce a 60-day, 20-state, 75-stop summer bus tour Monday to push for more stringent gun control laws and to register young people to vote, the 18-year-old found himself facing another daunting challenge that could break the internet if he accepts. Kaitlin Bennett, the Kent State grad who took the internet by storm recently when she posed on campus with an AR-10 strapped across her back, took to social media to challenge Hogg to an arm wrestling contest.

    Having been involved in the public discourse with the left since Reagan was in office, I have found universally that liberals love it when you hate them, but will go apoplectic with rage if you laugh at them. Using plays on words or rhymes (hey hey, ho ho...) appropriates their chosen form of ridicule and uses it against them, further deepening the wounds. So, based on years and years of making liberals supremely angry at me, I move that we refer to David Hogg’s brain dead, bereft of logic, two standard deviations left of the bell curve followers as “Hogglodytes”....

    Staring down the prospect of a public relations crisis — boycott threats and "die-in" protests included — over its donations to Republican gubernatorial hopeful Adam Putnam, Publix said Friday it has halted all corporate political contributions. The supermarket giant made the announcement moments before a "die-in" protest planned by David Hogg, a vocal Parkland school shooting survivor and gun control activist. Despite the news, Hogg and dozens of protestors sprawled on the floor of a Coral Springs Publix for 12 minutes clutching sunflowers and signs that read "No NRA Money." Hogg and other students began their influential movement for gun...
