Teen tyrant David Hogg: ‘Why doesn’t Congress have clear backpacks?’

On Tuesday, David Hogg, the foul-mouthed anti-gun teen demagogue dubbed the “king of the snowflakes,” took to Twitter to ask why members of Congress aren’t required to use clear backpacks the way students at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School are.

“Why doesn’t congress have clear backpacks???? Aren’t they unsafe???” he asked on Twitter.

“Oh, David, Twitchy said. “We realize you are feeling your 15 minutes slowly fading away but c’mon, you had to know this wouldn’t go very well for you.”

And it didn’t.


Hogg responded with a poorly-worded tweet that made no sense whatsoever.

Members of Congress aren’t protected by the Broward County Sheriff’s Department, which is probably a good thing, given their response before and during the Parkland shooting.  Apparently, Hogg didn’t get the memo.




Twitchy added:

Maybe if he understood the type of security Congressmen have he’d realize why instead of fighting for people to lose their rights he should be fighting for better security at our schools. Congress doesn’t need clear backpacks because they are guarded by good guys with guns.

“If,” however, can be a mighty big word…

One person reminded Hogg of a quote by Benjamin Franklin:

And then there’s this:


For starters, they’re Members of Congress, not high school children, even though some of them may act rather childish at times…

One Twitter user observed:

Yes, it is.

Kyle Kashuv responded:

Then there’s this:


Apparently not, but a growing number of people are getting tired of his low-information antics…
