Parkland survivor turned activist David Hogg has been on a rampage against the NRA since day 1 of the tragic Florida shooting. This time he accuses politicians of being the “b**ch of the NRA” in a new attack ad.
It starts off a bit gritty: “What if our politicians weren’t the b*tch of the NRA?”
“What if we all voted and said this was not okay?” he continued. “What if we stood up as Americans and fought for our freedom and our children’s lives? My name is David Hogg and I stand with the #NeverAgain movement.”

Just recently, he and his sister attempted to launch an armband campaign that was quickly denounced by many people, saying that it resembled the armbands worn by the Nazis during WWII.
As reported by Steadfast and Loyal:
The original Tweet was deleted (we’ll explain below) but it said: ““Inspired by the Supreme Court Landmark case Tinker vs Des Moines I’m starting #armbandsforchange. Make your own and wear it to school or work to protest gun violence,” Lauren tweeted.”
“You might have a little trouble getting Jewish Americans to embrace this look. Do you have any shiny jackboots and brown shirts to go with it? Guessing you might’ve skipped history class while you were shilling for the @DNC,” actor James Woods tweeted.
A little firestorm of sorts started up over this on Twitter, leaving Hogg no choice but to feel she had to delete it, saying “I am so sorry if I offended anyone with my former tweet, I had no intention of bringing any bad connotation to what we are trying to do which is using our past as in the Tinker vs Des Moine case to create a better future for us all.”
Woods then reminded: “I commend you for correcting an image that could be mistaken for a hurtful one. We all want a better future. I respect your voice, regardless of any differences we may have. Please just beware of political hacks trying to commandeer your genuine aspirations for a better world.”
