David Hogg orders: ‘Sell FedEx stock’ to hurt NRA; Anti-gun libs blindly obey

On Monday, student-turned activist and media darling David Hogg took a break from dictating travel plans for spring breakers to giving anti-gun leftists marching orders regarding what shipping company to use.  And his followers — not surprisingly — seem willing to obey.

“Sell FedEx stock!” he declared on Twitter. If they wanna stick with NRA we’ll stick with or

In another tweet, he added:  “No matter who you are or what organization are I’d (sic) be a huge help if you changed your shipping service over to @USPS or @DHLUS or @UPS in support of us. In fact tweet out at companies that use only use @FedEx and demand action! Let’s get this done.”

He also retweeted this:

Naturally, his followers blindly pledged their obedience.




Not everyone was impressed with Hogg’s investment advise, however.




Some even said they would purchase FedEx stock simply because Hogg is targeting them.



As we’ve reported earlier, a number of companies have caved to pressure from radical anti-gun leftists and essentially declared war on millions of law-abiding members of the NRA, mistakenly thinking that will have an impact on gun crime.

But those companies are now facing a huge backlash from those who support freedom and the Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms.

FedEx, so far, has not caved to the anti-gunners’ demands.

According to Time:

Thus far, however, FedEx has not made any changes to its partnership with the NRA, making the shipping company one of the most notable companies not to do so. The carrier’s FedEx Advantage discount program is still available to members of the NRA Business Alliance, and the NRA still lists FedEx discounts among the benefits of joining its business association. The program provides a variety of discounts on FedEx services, ranging from 18% off on select FedEx Express international shipping to 26% off select FedEx Express shipping within the U.S.

MONEY reached out to FedEx for comment on its NRA discount program, and asked if it planned to cut ties or continue its business partnership with the NRA, but FedEx has not replied. We will update this story if and when FedEx responds or releases any statement on the subject.

But Hogg and his fellow anti-gunners have apparently decided that anyone who doesn’t march in lock step with them must be targeted for destruction.

Hogg, by the way, has become something of a messiah-figure to those on the left who want the Second Amendment repealed and all guns confiscated.  At this point, we have to wonder: If he ordered his followers to jump off a building, would they blindly obey?
