Accountability Guns Guns in Schools

Laura Ingraham Mocked David Hogg, and Now He is Headed to Harvard

Interesting essay samples and examples on:

After the massacre at the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, in February, several students emerged as national spokespersons for the anti-gun movement. One of them, David Hogg, helped organize the “March for Our Lives” in D.C., which drew 800,000 people to the nation’s capitol. Hogg became a target for right-wingers and NRA shills.

When he admitted that he had been turned down by four California universities, FOX talk show host Laura Ingraham mocked him as a “whiner.”

This was not a good move for Ingraham.

In March, he told TMZ about his rejection letters he’d received from four California colleges, which came as he organized a movement he said was “changing the world.”

Mocking Hogg’s comments, Fox News host Laura Ingraham tweeted a story from a conservative news website that described the teen as a “Gun Rights Provocateur” — and said Hogg was whining.

“David Hogg Rejected By Four Colleges To Which He Applied and whines about it,” Ingraham tweeted. “(Dinged by UCLA with a 4.1 GPA … totally predictable given acceptance rates.)”

Hogg responded on Twitter, where his number of followers has surpassed 900,000. He compiled a list of 12 companies that advertise on Fox News’ “The Ingraham Angle.”

In a matter of days, Ingraham lost more than a dozen advertisers, including Johnson & Johnson, Nestle, Hulu, Jenny Craig, Ruby Tuesday and Miracle-Ear.

David Hogg was just accepted into Harvard.

Payback is a bitch.

Congratulations, David!
