Many of the conservative commentators have criticized Trump, and the Republicans including Hannity, Ingraham, and Limbaugh. The latest being the recent spending bill he signed. When did the Left ever criticize Obama, and Hillary?

It's a one off. As we've learned over the past year or so, Trump could stand up on that stage and pee on them, and they would say they were being anointed by the Gods. The ruder, cruder, and the more he lies, the better they like it. They only hold people from the other side to a higher standard.

She is constantly harping on how performers, athletes... should not be using their celebrity to espouse on politics and yet, my understanding is that she has uttered nary a word about how her boy Trump parlayed exactly that same celebrity to election and the WH.

Pretty obvious double-standard.

Have we really descended so far that we need a 1000+ post sticky thread for people hurl insults at a 17 year old and have a gigantic meltdown because a 54 year old woman just discovered that there actually are limits to what she can say before facing negative consequences?

Every time they did something wrong.

It's not the 17 year old. It is the dishonesty of the Left using big money Democrat supporters and the media to create this guy. Also, why should their be "LIMITS" on what Ingraham says? CNN, and MSNBC/NBC has said much worse about Trump, the Republicans, and many conservatives. Nobody is saying THEY should be limited?

Should Hogg's profanity, and lies be limited?

Yep, poor little David Hogg is ONLY concerned about banning guns and is ONLY concerned with using his sudden celebrity to further that cause.

Evidently NOT the case. He is a left wing activist wannabe reporter now being used as a front person.

Quote:
The March for Our Lives may have been the Parkland activist students' magnum opus, but they are by no means done agitating for leftist policies. The only relevant legislation on the horizon, the STOP School Violence Act, passed without their support, and there are few gun regulations likely to pass.

So, at least one Parkland student is seeking to expand his policy agenda; David Hogg is battling voter ID laws.

That's right: he may believe you should have photo identification in order to exercise your Second Amendment rights, but is iffy on whether you should have similar paperwork to cast a ballot.

Politicians: Yeah let's make it easier to vote.

Politicians Also: Wait let's require voters to have id so we can suppress the vote of the people so I can get reelected via a system that disproportionatly effects people of color and the poor! Smh

David Hogg (@davidhogg111) March 22, 2018
Hogg's statement appeared to come out of nowhere. The linked article is an ACLU fact sheet, not a new blog post, or a relevant news story. Hogg simply interrupted his regularly scheduled anti-gun programming to bring you a message from your betters: asking people who already have access to the means to acquire picture identification to show that identification in order to protect the electoral process is a problem.

After social media users suggested that voter ID laws help to safeguard elections, Hogg was forced to backtrack.

Listen I support the security of our election but not when it uses a system that suppresses the American's vote and voice

David Hogg (@davidhogg111) March 22, 2018
Hogg was silent once confronted with the idea that burdensome identification and background check requirements might serve to unfairly prevent Americans from exercising other Constitutionally protected rights.

Contrary to the stated purpose of Saturday's March for Our Lives "preventing gun violence" the objective appears to be the widespread promotion of a severely leftist agenda, and not just on guns.

So let me get this straight. When the Trump inspired boycotts hurt the NFL or CNN's ratings, all of the right wingers said Rah-Rah yay team. But when Hogg's boycotts hurt Ingraham and Fox, it's "wahh, wahh, pity poor Laura."

Give me a break. Live by the sword, die by the sword. Fox got a taste of their own medicine. Karma is a beotch, ain't it?

Nope, we've got a 1000 post thread to show the hypocrisy of the left and their new face David Hogg, henceforth known as another useful idiot or AL Sharpton wannabe.

I wonder why he didn't go after TMZ who's headline basically said the same thing as Ingram did? I'd guess it's because TMZ leans left and hates Trump maybe?

PARKLAND LEADER DAVID HOGG
I'm Changing the World ...
BUT UC SCHOOLS STILL REJECTED ME
That headline is certainly whining if there ever was so why didn't Hogg go after dear old Harvey?
