Washington Times op-ed: ‘David Hogg would’ve made a good brownshirt’

In an op-ed published Friday at the Washington Times, Cheryl Chumley said David Hogg, the foul-mouthed teen demagogue recently dubbed the “king og the snowflakes,” would’ve “made a pretty decent brownshirt back in the pre-World War II day.”

“Those are the National Socialist party people who ran around Germany strong-arming and bullying and intimidating the general populace into accepting the goals of the Nazi organization,” she explained.  “Not saying Hogg’s one now — goodness, no. There are advertisers to consider, of course,” she added.

Chumley continued:

Just saying his demeanor, his rhetoric, his whiney demands, his illogical views of the Second Amendment, his refusal to consider facts and historical truths over emotionally charged screams — all that, added up and considered, suggests he may have missed his calling by a few decades, and an Atlantic Ocean.


Chumley summarized the brouhaha involving Fox New host Laura Ingraham, observing that she apologized for something that really didn’t call for an apology.  Hogg, however, refused to accept her apology and demanded she denounce Fox News as atonement for her sin.

He later told MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell that he refused to accept her apology because, “she’s a bully” and needs to be “held accountable.”

“Whaah,” Chumley said.  “Advertisers should have more guts than to cave on a matter so minute as Hoggs’ hurt feelings. Ingraham’s apology was far above what he deserved. And if Hogg wants to be taken seriously and regarded as a leader of movement against violence, he needs to drop the brownshirt-type bully tactics and toughen his skin.”

That pretty much echoes what yours truly said here.  Hogg has chosen to become a public figure and either needs to grow up or shut up.
