David Hogg’s Salute After Speech Causes Major Reaction On Twitter

Published

Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School student and gun control activist David Hogg gave a fiery speech and a salute at the “March for Our Lives” gun control rally in Washington, DC. It was filled with gun control talking points and heated rhetoric aimed at the NRA and politicians.

But it was his totalitarian salute following his speech that set Twitter on fire and sent social media into a frenzy. He led up to that with vocal attacks and basically a call to revolution – he singled out Senatar Marco Rubio (R-FL) to demonize during his speech. “First off, I’m gonna 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. One dollar and five cents,” Hogg said.

Hogg – 18 – gave a four-minute speech that looked and sounded like a leftist politician’s rally for election. “When politicians say that your voice doesn’t matter because the NRA owns them, we say: No more. When politicians send their thoughts and prayers with no action, we say: No more. And to those politicians supported by the NRA, that allow the continued slaughter of our children and our future, I say: Get your résumés ready,” he said later in the speech. These are standard talking points by the left and it is very obvious Hogg has been coached on them. Never mind that most of these kids are not even old enough to vote.

Dressed in a gray suit with a orange price tag hanging from a buttonhole, Hogg said marchers must “make this the voting issue.” The price tag was intended to represent what Sen. Marco Rubio received from the NRA’s legislative arm, divided by the number of students killed at his high school, Hogg said.

“Lastly, let’s put the USA over the NRA,” Hogg concluded. “Thank you, I love you all, God bless all of you, and God bless America. We can, and we will, change the world.” It was at that point that Hogg stepped away from the lectern and put his fist in the air. It is unclear what he meant by the gesture, but it is used as a black power symbol, a communist symbol and is fascistic in nature. Needless to say, it was not a good look.

Many, many people found the gesture as well as the speech and the rally off putting. Hogg has already produced armbands reminiscent of the Hitler Youth to wear at rallies. Followed by this gesture, social media went wild. Kyle Kashuv, a Parkland student who doesn’t advocate for gun control, asked his followers to caption the moment. “This is almost too easy,” one person replied. “‘Today we march, but tonight we DISCO!’” another humorously stated. “First it was armbands, now it’s salutes. #MarchForOurLives seems dedicated to reviving the totalitarianism that brought so much bloodshed last century. The demonization of groups in society, calls for violence, etc This is why Americans own guns,” another person said.

There were more. “Raised fist is a Communist gesture,” one person pointed out. “I’m doing everything CNN and liberals want me too. I really have no clue what I’m talking about,” another replied. “Not a good look. Gonna be a meme fest with this,” another said. And a whole bunch of people compared the gesture to the Nazi Party salute.

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

Hogg and his compatriots are demanding that government authoritarians strip away the civil liberties of all law-abiding Americans in the name of “gun control.” While doing so, they are calling for a revolution. I think showing his salute and armbands is reminiscent of Nazi Germany and should serve as a warning to all Americans concerning this new movement that is developing in America among our young people. Totalitarian regimes always strip citizens of guns and rights just before clamping down on them and killing people. These children may not have been taught this history, but their parents and other adults should know it and learn from it. Not promote it.

Hogg is being groomed as the new, young face of the Marxist left. He will surely run for political office and try to create a movement among young people in America that drastically shifts the nation and lurches all the way to the left.

Here is the short transcript of David Hogg’s speech – it’s a must read:

First off, I’m gonna 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. One dollar and five cents.

The cold grasp of corruption shackles the District of Columbia. The winter is over. Change is here. The sun shines on a new day, and the day is ours. First-time voters show up 18 percent of the time at midterm elections. Not anymore. Now, who here is gonna vote in the 2018 election? If you listen real close, you can hear the people in power shaking. They’ve gotten used to being protective of their position, the safety of inaction. Inaction is no longer safe. And to that, we say: No more.

Ninety-six people die every day from guns in our country, yet most representatives have no public stance on guns. And to that, we say: No more. We are going to make this the voting issue. We are going to take this to every election, to every state, in every city. We are going to make sure the best people get in our elections to run, not as politicians, but as Americans. Because this — this is not cutting it. When people try to suppress your vote, and there are people who stand against you because you’re too young, we say: No more.

When politicians say that your voice doesn’t matter because the NRA owns them, we say: No more. When politicians send their thoughts and prayers with no action, we say: No more. And to those politicians supported by the NRA, that allow the continued slaughter of our children and our future, I say: Get your résumés ready.

Today is the beginning of spring, and tomorrow is the beginning of democracy. Now is the time to come together, not as Democrats, not as Republicans, but as Americans. Americans of the same flesh and blood, that care about one thing and one thing only, and that’s the future of this country and the children that are going to lead it.

Now, they will try to separate us in demographics. They will try to separate us by religion, race, congressional district and class. They will fail. We will come together. We will get rid of these public servants that only serve the gun lobby, and we will save lives. You are those heroes.

Lastly, let’s put the USA over the NRA. This is the start of the spring and the blossoming of our democracy. So let’s take this to our local legislators, and let’s take this to midterm elections, because without the persistence — heat — without the persistence of voters and Americans everywhere, getting out to every election, democracy will not flourish. But it can, and it will. So, I say to those politicians that say change will not come, I say: We will not stop until every man, every woman, every child, and every American can live without fear of gun violence. And to that, I say: No more.

Thank you, I love you all, God bless all of you, and God bless America. We can, and we will, change the world.
