FIFY.

Find a conservative kid as arrogant and ineffective an advocate as Hogg and then get back to me. There is no such person.

An articulate and effective anti-Second Amendment jack ass is not an intelligent person. The idiot should consider sporting a tattoo on his forehead, with the words "100% Anti Self Defense Pendejo" in red and black ink.

Certainly not proto-Trump

I take it your daughter is not one of those 1570 SAT, 4.0 GPA's the school claims to accept?

Not to worry, just play by their rules. Claim foreign student status. Not only accepted, Law Review President. What the heck, if you decide to run for president, just reclaim citizenship. Nancy will cover for you. Stick a feather in your hair. Not only admission, but professor. Harvard will tout you as a great example of its diversity. Or ride your bike 3 miles as fast as you can to get your camera. Instant gun expert. For gun experts, 1200 SAT's is good enough. GPA not necessary.

I would think as a prominent Harvard law grad now practicing attorney you would know these things.

Character Assassinations are the rage within the far right community. From now until the election in Nov. 2020 this will be their theme.

The anti-intellectual, hate and fear, group seems dedicated to the destruction of democracy in America, and seeks to continue 1984 into the third decade of the 21st Century.

That's rich. It was not the right that has been employing character assassination to stifle speech. In the case of David Hogg, it was the left that promoted this 18 yr old kid as their spokesman after the Parkland shooting. It is when he began attacking everyone with a differing opinion that the right fought back to show how clueless he was in his positions.

If you want to talk character assassination, lets talk Nicholas Sandmann who had the audacity to visit Washington D.C. for a pro-life rally while wearing a MAGA hat. Then while being attacked by not one, but two separate, left leaning groups, he simply stood there and said nothing.

And what did the left wing MSM (and here I repeat myself) do? They painted him as the second coming of Hitler. He never expressed an opinion; he didn't confront anyone; he just stood there and let the idiot with the drum make a fool of himself. And then naturally, the MSM took the side of the fool.

THAT is a classic example of Character Assassination!

That maybe one data point. Though the facts of his being "attacked" seem to be hyperbole. I watched the video, and that smug face was arrogant, not audacious.
