Parkland student David Hogg has stirred controversy not just by pushing gun control, but in the way he went about doing it in the wake of the school shooting in Parkland, Florida. Hogg has gone out of his way to be political and to demonize the NRA calling them “child murderers” and to attack Republicans including President Donald Trump, bragging about how he “hung up” on Trump when the White House tried to reach out to listen to what he had to say.
But Hogg managed to step in it again, this time along with his sister Lauren, as they pushed their latest endeavor.
Lauren Hogg posted a tweet pushing their “armbands for change” movement.
Do you see it?
Actor James Woods pointed out the small problem that kids who are teenagers might not understand.
You might have a little trouble getting Jewish Americans to embrace this look. Do you have some shiny jackboots and brown shirts to go with it? Guessing maybe you skipped history class while you were shilling for the @DNC… https://t.co/I4gPFmR3FS

Exactly! And when you’re running around attending media events, you tend to miss things in history class that might be important for you to know.
Lauren Hogg later apologized for her tweet, saying she didn’t mean to offend anyone.
But that’s exactly why kids don’t make policy. Because there’s perforce a whole lot of things they just don’t know or understand yet.
And that’s not their fault. They’re kids. They’re not supposed to be making policy.
James Woods tried to give her a little advise. Classy.
Take a little time away from the media circuit and concentrate on what you’re supposed to be doing: being students and kids.
