David Hogg wants Marjorie Taylor Greene’s resignation, not her sympathy
David Hogg gets 'swatted.'

Gun rights activist said Congresswoman's contriteness comes too late.

David Hogg doesn’t need Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene’s apology.

The Parkland shooting survivor-turned-political activist spoke to CNN a day after the Georgia Congresswoman evoked his name on the House floor.

“We are continuing to call for her resignation,” Hogg said while wearing a March For Our Lives T-shirt.

That’s after Greene, before the House voted to strip her of all committee assignments in Congress, gave a contrite speech on the floor where she acknowledged the Parkland shooting indeed happened. She also discussed a traumatic experience when she was in high school when an armed student took her campus hostage.

“I know the fear David Hogg had that day,” she said, referencing the Feb 14, 2018, school shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.

Greene previously declined to retract controversial statements about the shooting being a planned event and recently faced criticism over resurfaced video of her stalking Hogg outside Congress and calling him a coward paid by George Soros.

About Greene’s apparent change of heart on the reality of the event, Hogg told CNN, ”I don’t really care.”

He told the cable outlet that if Greene truly felt apologetic, she would have withdrawn her support of conspiracy theories before having her committee assignments threatened.

“In politics and in life generally, there are a lot of immature adults in power,” he said of Greene.

But he also said that he does not personally deserve an apology; Greene owes more to the families who lost children at the Parkland shooting and mass shootings at Sandy Hook in Connecticut and the Las Vegas shooting.

The gun control activist also reminded most shooting deaths don’t happen in mass shootings like at his high school, but in Black and Brown communities in acts of violence that rarely earn national media coverage.

CNN also asked Hogg about the talk he wants to launch a pillow company to compete with Mike Lindell’s MyPillow. Hogg said he’s working on the venture but needs to find a manufacturing partner.

“It’s very hard to find a unionized pillow manufacturer in the United States,” he said.

Hogg also said that while the company will be a for-profit venture, he wants a social enterprise component where money gets funneled to a positive cause.

    Who cares what this child wants? He has a vastly inflated sense of his importance.

    I think what he really wants is a few more minutes of fame. His first 15 were not enough for him.

    David Hogg claims to be a survivor of a shooting that he heard about on the radio or Facebook and rode his bicycle to the school to see what was going on. He was no longer even a student at the school. How can this loser claim survivor status?. He is just a snot nosed twerp trying to be relevant, he is not.

    Maybe after this little entitled twit gets a job, pays taxes, and becomes a productive member of society, I might listen. Until then……he is another loud mouth with nothing to say. Perhaps he can hook up with that greta what’s her name?
