Some people (leftists) are so desperate for attention they’ll abandon all sense of decorum, dignity, and tact just to pull a stunt or cause a scene. Nothing makes for better social media content than a disgruntled leftoid shouting down a congressional hearing!
We’ve all seen this on numerous occasions, most recently with the ‘Squad’ when they pretended to be detained with handcuffs by Capitol Police during an abortion rally. But left-wing activism in and of itself seems to be a massive cry for attention — just look at Antifa and Black Lives Matter!
Another notorious lefty activist made a splash on social media this week after being forcefully escorted out of a congressional hearing.
Gun control activist and Parkland school shooting survivor David Hogg interrupted a hearing on firearms, ranting and raving like a lunatic before eventually being escorted out by security guards.
Video footage shows the activist and left-wing provocateur standing up during the hearing and delivering an impassioned plea against guns before security ushers him out.

Hogg interrupted a markup of bills H.R. 2814, the Equal Access to Justice for Victims of Gun Violence Act, and H.R. 1808, the Assault Weapons Ban of 2021, according to the House Judiciary Committee’s weekly schedule.
In what could possibly be the most irrelevant point any gun control activist has ever made, Hogg can be heard yelling “Those guns aren’t coming from Mexico!” amongst other non-sequiturs.
Apparently in an attempt to be the most woke anti-gun radical, Hogg was referring to Republican gripes about border security as cartels continue to traffic drugs, firearms, and human beings into the U.S.
He also attempted to explain to the committee that mass shooters have often expressed racist sentiments in their manifestos, offering multiple examples.
The guns in Parkland, Buffalo, El Paso, didn't come from Mexico. They came from the US, and the shooters were inspired by racist, anti-black, anti-immigrant manifestos that rhyme with GOP talking points. pic.twitter.com/0D4QbHvu1t

He proceeded to rant, rave, and generally embarrass himself by pointing out the motivations of recent mass shooters, claiming they were inspired to commit murder by “GOP talking points”.
“We have a duty to interrupt white nationalists when they spew harmful rhetoric. We have to. They’re using the same talking points as mass shooter manifestos. Here’s my reflections and some context,” Hogg later added, sharing another video of himself.
Meanwhile, Hogg conveniently failed to mention the critical level of gun violence within the black community, choosing instead to focus on white mass shooters. Really makes you think!
