Wounded warrior shreds teen demagogue David Hogg: ‘Watch what you say’

On Friday, Derek Weida, a wounded warrior who lost a leg while deployed in Iraq, posted a response to David Hogg, the foul-mouthed teen demagogue recently dubbed the “king of the snowflakes,” that has been shared over 20,000 times.

The post began by telling Hogg to “watch what you say.”

“I’m Derek, I got shot on a house raid in Iraq. My getting shot didn’t make me a professional on war, international relations, house raids (obviously), or guns,” he said.  “This horrible thing happened to me but I didn’t come home and protest the war… Even though I do kinda have these feelings that Iraq was errr… Questionable.”

While admitting that he signed up to get shot at, as opposed to Parkland students, Waida had a few words to offer about gun control.

“It’s not a gun problem, not a people problem, it’s a culture thing,” he wrote. “America loves guns. Accept that just like I had to accept that America loves God. Don’t ever be so quick to tell a whoooole lot of people how to live.”

Nobody, he added, “wants shootings of any kind,” even though he said that he’s “actually kinda with the anti-gun folk.”  But, he added, “It’s not even about the gun. It’s about the freedom and the right… And you can’t win an argument against that, nor should you (In most cases).”

Yes, he said, “let’s find ways to deter those .001% of people as best we can but they’re gonna accomplish their task regardless… Most likely. I guess I just want to say don’t be so quick to talk. Don’t be so quick to think YOU are somehow the ONE person who has things figured out. You want to make a change? Cool!! But… Try to be less of a c**t about it.”

The Daily Caller noted:

In 2015, Weida was featured in Stars & Stripes for how physical fitness helped pull him out of depression after losing his leg to an insurgent’s bullet in 2007 while deployed to Iraq.
