David Hogg is now demanding that Publix donate $1 million to his cause and pledge to never support a candidate that the NRA likes again.

I call on @Publix to donate double the money they gave to Putman to the Stoneman Douglas Victims fund, $1,000,000. And never support an A rated NRA politician again.
Also trying to organize a "die-in" at the Publix in Parkland tomorrow. This is what happens when people encourage illogical thought.

He's been tutored by Jessy Jackson and Al Sharpton from the looks of it.
Now he just needs to become ordained.

I hope Adam Putnam gets primaried in the FL Gov race. Putnam is controlled by the NRA. Hogg has brought this out into the open by showing that Publix has contributed a lot of money to Putnam over the years. I hope Hogg continues to bring this to the attention of Florida voters. This will help Putnam's GOP competitors for the August primary. Putnam is the frontrunner at the moment.

I think your idea of Florida is influenced by the southern end of the state. Most Floridians - hell, most people who are capable of logical thought - could care less about the NRA and its pittance of members. There are more than 100 million firearms owners in the U.S. The NRA has 5 million members. Your boogieman is not nearly as scary to Floridians as public unions are.

The NRA has very little political power, contrary to popular belief.

In fact, many gun owners greatly dislike the NRA, as they are a spineless, capitulating, compromising organization whose sole concerns are gun manufacturer profits and police unions.

Those die ins will likely have the opposite effect of what they are expecting. Normal Americans found the antics of the occupy Wallstreet crowd annoying and all they accomplished was giving the impression they are spoiled, obnoxious adult children.

If petulant Hogg has started a campaign against Putnam, he should at least learn to spell his name correctly.

I don’t think you understand what extortion means, let alone demands. That tweet is not a demand and it isnt extortion.

Exactly, the sheep just haven't figured that out.
