The topic of this thread is not the military service record of any individual, up to and including that of Mr. Triangle Face.

Rather, the topic is Mr. Triangle Face’s appalling inability to gracefully deal with public criticism he himself precipitated by his own words.

Please exercise some badly needed intellectual discipline by getting back on point, and avoid these lame attempts to sidetrack the discussion in the future.

Love it. Ingraham got her bullying butt kicked by high school kid. Having survived a school massacre and being justifiably concerned about school safety Hogg has now been targeted not by bullets but by the alt right with character assasination and ridicule. Shame on Ingraham and her ilk.

If she had offered any sort of sincere apology, he might have accepted it. Saying she was doing it "in the spirit of Holy Week" was a crock of cranberries and totally transparent. Everyone knew by that time she was hemorrhaging advertisers and therefore disposable dollars. She got exactly what she bargained for.
She have been more holy in Holy Week anyway, and never mocked him in the first place. In the spirit of Holy Week she should have been much nicer, and not so mean spirited and hateful. All that blew up in her face, and she should be embarrassed.

I will support the declaration of views expressed non-violently or without incitement of violence, even if I do not agree with those views.

If you have a problem with that then fine, but please try to not get confused in the future on the topic. Thanks in advance.

I'd never heard of her before this thread.

Sure she has a right, within the confines of what her employer deems acceptable. I absolutely support that.

I also support the right of all the advertisers who pulled their accounts as representative as their right to free speech.

Keep talking, troops.
Exactly, I agree 100%, they only have themselves to blame. But, let them keep it up, this kid got staying power.

The same could be said for the other side. In any event, anyone who doesn't agree with the progressive agenda is considered a right winger.

The NRA sticks up for gun manufacturers, not constitutional rights. Time to put the koolaid down for once.

Now, if Ingraham had tweeted something legitimately offensive such as a racial, sexist, religious, or whatever comment, then I would have wholeheartedly agreed that she deserved what she got.

But all she did was post out legend in his own mind camera hogg's whining about not being accepted into UC, his implication being that based on his 'heroism' on this gun control nonsense, the UC schools should have made an exception for him.

And camera hogg made a mountain out of a molehill, and I am truly disgusted at those adults who enabled this fool. This is the same camera hogg that insulted Republicans, OLD people, and others far worse than what Ingraham posted.

I wonder if the adults that enable fools like hogg realize that young people like him mock and despise older people. Jeezus this whole thing is soooo stupid.
Perhaps you are familiar with the word, slander. If not, it's the oral defamation of one's character, and can be used for the basis for a lawsuit. When a public figure with a huge platform and audience slanders someone, much less a minor, there should be consequences in some form, if not in court then in the court of public opinion. Justice prevailed this day.

Hogg never whined, nor did he make any such made reference to why he was not accepted. This is what the right does, they spread fake news because this is the kind of stuff they know their audience will fall over and over again, even after it's been proven fake. Go the link below to actually educate yourself on what he said, rather than getting all your info from talking heads.
