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 firms public-service activities at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, scene of the deadly Feb. 14 shooting.
While we have not contributed to the GoFundMe account, on April 3, more than 65 Publix associates, including our CEO & President [Todd Jones], spent our Publix Serves Day at Marjory Stoneman Douglas, said Ms. Krauss in an email.
We worked on several projects that were funded by Publix, including an herb/vegetable garden for the culinary program, beautification of common grounds and sodding, and landscaping a new yoga/meditation area for the students, she said. We hoped our efforts would help the students find comfort in each other and a peaceful place to reflect and meditate.
Publix landed in the center of the gun-control debate last month over its reported $670,000 in campaign contributions over three years to Florida agriculture commissioner Adam Putnam, a staunch NRA supporter whos running for the GOP gubernatorial nomination. The company suspended its political giving shortly before Mr. Hogg led a May 25 supermarket die-in, but has not asked Mr. Putnam to return the campaign checks or contributed to the GoFundMe account, which reached $8.8 million on Wednesday.

No. Please David, hold your breath.
The combination of protest and request of a mill is extortion. Why isn’t this punk in cuffs?
Hogg should call for a Publix boycott if they don’t send the money.
That will teach them to mess with the Hogg
Call in a drone strike on the SOB.
“Why isnt this punk in cuffs?”
Worked for Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton.
Boycotting Publix in Florida would be like boycotting Safeway in California.
Ain’t gonna happen........................
This Asshole, Hogg deserves a rent free vacation in Gitmo for a couple of years.
How cute hes got the bracelets and everything.
Ahh, but they were smart enough not to ask for cash outright, and certainly not in a way that can be proved in court, like the zit did by publicly announcing it.
They caved pretty quick with the first “lie-in”. Economic extortion appears to work. Publix should have applied for an FFL the day the threat from the hoggalites first came in.
Stormy Daniels, David Hogg,... same profession.
Im thinking more perhaps more opportunistic. He hopes this is just the beginning of a long and rewarding career as a shakedown artist.
Where are this useful idiot’s parents? Aren’t they embarrassed?
Somebody - anybody - slap some sense into this boy!
(and then keep on slapping)
Because if they did prosecute, they’d have to take down Jessie Jackson and Al Sharpton with him.
That depends on what part of California. There isnt a Safeway store within at least a hundred miles of where I live.
