On Friday, David Hogg, the anti-gun teen demagogue once dubbed the “king of the snowflakes” on Twitter, posted a tweet in which he decried “gerrymandering” at colleges across the country, prompting many to wonder if he even knows what the term means.
He started with this tweet:
North Carolina A&T is still the most civically engaged and politically involved college I've ever been too.
I asked 300 people if they have voted and only 2 said they hadn't but had a plan to. I wish that was the story at every college.

He then followed up with a statement declaring: “The gerrymandering on campus is ridiculous tbh”

For Hogg’s benefit, Mirriam Webster defines “gerrymander” as: (1) “to divide or arrange (a territorial unit) into election districts to give one political party an electoral majority in a large number of districts while concentrating the voting strength of the opposition in as few districts as possible,” and (2) “to divide or arrange (an area) into political units to give special advantages to one group.”
Naturally, pretty much everyone’s heard of gerrymandered congressional districts — districts designed to ensure someone like Sheila Jackson Lee gets re-elected to office for the rest of her natural life no matter what she does or says.
So, how are colleges across America gerrymandered? We’re not sure, and we’re pretty certain Hogg isn’t sure, either.
Reaction on Twitter was pretty much what you’d expect:
Fellow Parkland student Kyle Kashuv wasn’t finished shredding Hogg:
You should learn what gerrymandering is, moron.— Kyle Kashuv (@KyleKashuv) November 3, 2018
Others hammered Hogg as well:
I don’t think that word means what you think it means— Neil M (@Neil10790465) November 3, 2018
You have no idea what gerrymandering is.— PB Firearms (@FirearmsPB) November 3, 2018
I gerrymandered my Pork Carnitas before it went in the cooker. It really helps with the flavor.— Ryan (@SingSellPray) November 3, 2018
One person suggested:
perhaps you'll be able to go to college one day— Sede Vacantist (@dibassetto) November 3, 2018
Perhaps he should go back to high school and retake civics first.
How exactly does one "gerrymander" a college campus? https://t.co/eSl3C4YDpj

That’s what we’d like to know.
