Hypocrite: Anti-Gun David Hogg Caught Taking Stroll in NYC with Apparent Armed Guards Feet Away


Self-defense for me, but not for thee: That seems to be the new message of anti-Second Amendment advocate David Hogg, at least if claims by people who spotted him in New York City recently are correct.

Earlier this week, the spotlight-seeking Parkland student-turned activist was photographed in the Big Apple apparently flanked by bodyguards with military haircuts and Secret Service-style suits.

“Here’s [David Hogg] in NYC today with armed guards and bunch of publicists. #neveragain #Hypocrites,” Sean Di Somma posted on Twitter, along with photographs to back it up.

As The American Mirror pointed out, Hogg himself jumped into the Twitter discussion of his apparent armed entourage and didn’t refute the claim that he was roaming the streets with armed bodyguards.

“Love you too,” Hogg replied in response to Di Somma’s tweet pointed out the professional security.

“Perfect Hypocrite Hogg. Speaking out every day about taking other peoples guns but oh so willing to have people with guns protecting him,” commented Jim Gerber.

Other users pointed out that the hypocrisy is especially deep since it’s in New York City, a place with some of the most strict gun control laws in the nation and where concealed carry permits are nearly impossible to obtain.

It’s almost as if Hogg doesn’t truly trust laws to keep people from illegally carrying guns, despite… well, constantly advocating for more laws to keep people from carrying guns.

Do you think David Hogg is a hypocrite on the gun issue?

“But (David Hogg), I thought armed guards were not an answer to security? Who is Paying for him?” asked GA Patriot on Twitter. “Everytown? George Soros ? What makes you Special or better that anyone else in NYC?”

Instead of answering that very good question, Hogg rushed to bizarrely claim that he wasn’t really against the Second Amendment.

“You should really read (my) book if you did you would know we’re pro second amendment,” the 18-year-old posted on Twitter.

Hogg’s version of supporting gun ownership: “They’re pathetic f***ers that want to keep killing our children,” he declared about millions of law-abiding members of the National Rifle Association.

“They could have blood from children splattered all over their faces and they wouldn’t take action because they all still see those dollar signs,” he continued. Gee, so pro-gun ownership.

Meanwhile, Hogg has also spoken out against conservative proposals to put more armed and trained staff members in schools, who could stop mass shootings quickly.

Take a look at what Hogg’s classmate and gun control ally Emma Gonzalez thinks about American gun rights. “I don’t really care what people who defend the Second Amendment have to say,” she declared a few months ago.

Claiming to be “pro-Second Amendment,” while also chanting that anyone who legally owns guns has children’s blood on their faces.

Pretending that gun ownership is bad while surrounding themselves with apparently armed bodyguards whenever they step into public.

Acting as if more laws are a magic solution while showing that they have no faith in New York laws actually keeping them safe.

If there was any doubt left that Hogg and his group shouldn’t be taken seriously, this should clear it up.
