David Hogg promised us a new boycott (see David Hogg Advertises Another Boycott, Gets Mocked By Kyle Kashuv and Kyle Kashuv Ends David Hogg’s New “Boycott” Before It Begins). Forget Fox News. The Hoggermeyerweiner said he was going against investment firms that “fund” the gun industry. It was totally his original big boy idea, too. Not the idea of the leftist special interests who give him his milk money. Who use divestment as a weapon against anyone they don’t like. Hoggzilla thought of this himself. Sitting around the a picnic table with the rest of the Hoggy Bunch. During a Pokemon Go lunch break.
He should have spent more time on his Playstation. The boycott was just as successful as his forays into facial hair.
Lighting appears not to have struck twice with David Hogg’s call for a boycott of investment management companies Vanguard Group and BlackRock over their investment in gun manufacturers.
“No high-profile clients that I can think of left BlackRock as a result of it,” one BlackRock employee told TheWrap. “It’s definitely not water-cooler talk.”
At Vanguard, one company employee told TheWrap, the situation “remains kind of the same as what it has been in previous months.”
And while Vanguard has noted that its investment options include an FTSE Social Index Fund that specifically “excludes gun manufacturers,” the company insider said there had been no noticeable increase in requests for that fund in the last week.
Adulting is hard. Isn’t it, David?
Here’s what we know around these parts about David Hogg: Americans do love the little pug face. But not in the way David thinks. Based on what we’ve seen, Americans love David Hogg much the same way they love London’s Mayor Sadiq Khan. Or Piers Morgan having tea with Ben Shapiro. Scratch that, Piers Morgan drowning in his tea as Ben shoves Pier’s face into a vat of it.
Americans love to hate David Hogg, is what I’m saying. So when the insufferable little toe wart calls for a boycott, Americans go and do the opposite of what David says. Which could be why Laura Ingraham’s viewership numbers are rock solid. Words we wouldn’t use to describe the firmness of the moral ground Hogg stands upon.
