Before anyone goes #SavedYouAClick, no. This time it’s someone OTHER than Kyle Kashuv calling out Lil’ Hogg. Take a minute to recap the David Hogg/Laura Ingraham feud. Let’s start off from Hogg rejecting her apology.
I 100% agree an apology in an effort just to save your advertisers is not enough. I will only accept your apology only if you denounce the way your network has treated my friends and I️ in this fight. It’s time to love thy neighbor, not mudsling at children. https://t.co/H0yWs4zMGk

I don’t care how young you are. If you’re old enough to have a big boy opinion, you’re old enough to get criticized for it (see Save Your Whining. If You Enter the Public Arena of Ideas, Prepare to Get Burned and Dear Parkland Activists: You Admit to Bullying the Shooter, But Have the Gall to Blame Guns and the NRA?). Suck it up, buttercups.
A point made by another Parkland survivor, Patrick Petty. Who has been speaking out after his sister was one the victims of the tragic shooting,
I find it funny that @davidhogg111 wants people to show him love while being nasty and vile to others. Worse than that, he and his friends have not said a word to me since the shooting, considering my sister died on 2/14 don’t you think it would’ve been loving to reach out to me? https://t.co/8Gn3UsatjI

Sadly, Patrick and his father Ryan aren’t as much as household names. They don’t fit the left anti-NRA narrative. Also, they are too buys working toward making positive changes.
Thank you Shannon. We're doing our best to make sure this never happens to another family. We're in a race against time.

Here’s the bottom line: if you’re going to be nasty and vile to people, expect them to be nasty and vile back. I’m rubber, you’re glue, etc.
Public political discourse isn’t pretty. It’s not always civil. Polite. So people mocking each other, throwing mud, stones, and high capacity clips for semi-automatic sub-machine guns “iz normal.” Don’t act all hurty about it when it finally catches up to you, a person making hay in the anti-gun news.
