For anti-gun teen demagogue David Hogg, the oft-repeated phrase, “the young people will win,” is somewhat akin to “I am Groot,” the only line given to the character Groot in the movie, “Guardians of the Galaxy.”
Last Tuesday, Hogg used the line in response to a tweet by Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who responded to the Daily Beast’s Gideon Resnick, who said said on Twitter that she was “over 1,000 emails deep on press requests…”
A week after her win, @Ocasio2018 is still, per spox, over 1,000 emails deep on press requests

Ocasio-Cortez responded: “This is 100% true and I also have 600 unread text messages on my phone. I am responding to them in no particular order at this point, so don’t be offended if you haven’t heard back! It’ll take a minute. Patience, grace, and generosity are appreciated.”

That prompted Hogg to issue a “Groot-like” response: “The young people will win.”

What, exactly, does this mean? Did Hogg endorse Ocasio-Cortez? We’re not entirely certain, not being equipped with a Hogg-English dictionary or a decoder ring, but it doesn’t take much to connect the dots.
As our own Dave Workman noted, the New York socialist is a far-left anti-gunner:
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the political newcomer who just became a media rock star for knocking off the fourth-ranking U.S. House Democrat in a stunning primary victory is a far-left gun control advocate who wants to ban so-called “assault weapons” and magazines, and mandate so-called “universal background checks.”
Workman also posted this from her campaign website:
Ban Assault Weapons, High-Capacity Magazines, and Bump Stocks
It’s clear that the Founding Fathers did not have assault weapons in mind when they wrote the Second Amendment. These machines of war were brought over to the civilian market in the 1980s, alongside high-capacity magazines, and dramatically increase the death toll of mass shootings where used. Alexandria believes that the Federal Assault Weapons Ban should be reinstated, strengthened, and made permanent.
She also wants to ban members of Congress from accepting campaign contributions from the so-called “gun lobby” and companies that invest in the firearms industry. In essence, she wants to strip those entities of their First Amendment right to political speech — just like a good Socialist:
Require Congresspeople to take no money from the gun lobby or private equity companies that invest in the firearms industry
Gun lobby money is the number one barrier to getting any meaningful action on guns accomplished in Congress. The NRA has invested millions of dollars to make sure our politicians keep our gun laws weak and our children at risk. This is also not just a Republican problem — many Democrats take millions of dollars from private equity companies that own large stakes in gun companies and stand to lose millions of dollars if gun laws are made stricter.
We need to make sure our Congresspeople are making laws to protect Americans and not the gun lobby, and until we take away the financial incentive for our elected officials, we will continue to have Republicans blocking any gun regulations and Democrats not having the will to fight hard enough against it.
Hogg, by the way, has also railed against politicians accepting contributions from special interests.
It would certainly seem that Hogg and Ocasio-Cortez are on the same page.
One person reminded the youngster:
Socialists always lose in the long haul.
Another person added:
Your quote should be “the young socialist will win.” And I pray to God you’re wrong. Based upon your history of helping those you protest, I have a feeling you’re wrong again! #MAGA

A third person responded:
NO! Common sense will win!

We can hope…
Did Hogg actually endorse Orcasio-Cortez, even if the endorsement is somewhat cryptic? It sure looks like it to us…
