You remember David Hogg, right?
He's that kid from Stoneman Douglas High School which went through a school shooting back in 2018. Nowadays, he's a quasi-gun activist and he thinks that he's an expert on guns and apparently violence as well.
Now he's getting some backlash from his peers because he criticized the violence going on in right now across the country.
“Young people can stage a nonviolent political revolution over the coming decade but it will require all of us voting in consistently high # EVERY election, protesting, organizing and running for office and most importantly the persistence, love and community to overcome setbacks. To do so we must all practice the humility, kindness and grace to be the political leaders we need to be in order to create such change.”
“We must not fall for the slander espoused by those in power that says violence will solve our problems, they only say that so they can have an excuse to grow their authoritarianism. I have seen how violence and hate destroys lives and communities- it is not the answer. The use of violence to acquire political power is deeply rooted in imperialism, capitalism and white supremacy[.] I personally refuse to believe that the use of this same violence will ever create nonviolent systems of government that represent and support everyone.”
Then he ended up apologizing for it because apparently some people are too stupid to understand common English and were mad at him for speaking about another race since he's white.
"This is directed specifically at the young white people I see arming themselves or wanting to so they can go and loot and act in antagonistic ways against the state trying to use allyship as a cover."
"Let me be clear what I am NOT trying to do is tell BIPOC people how they should react to violence directed at them by the state. It’s not my place or any white persons to direct or criticize the way BIPOC people choose to defend themselves against this violence from the state."
"I am sorry for how understandably anyone could have misinterpreted what was said."
"I appreciate those that have called me out and let me know how this tweet was offensive and I am welcome to continuing to learn. Many are understandably upset and offended and I have have (sic) to do my part in admitting to mistakes when I make them and supporting my friends."
I think we need to get back into calling people sissies again. Because there sure are a lot of them nowadays. People have grown so sensitive about everything in the world, and so illogical about everything in the world that they can't accept criticism. And that's how we find ourselves in the wreck that we're in today.
