On Monday, when CNN’s Alisyn Camerota called out far-left activist David Hogg for his vicious attacks on Marco Rubio, suggesting that Hogg’s vile rhetoric was going too far and was not constructive in helping provide solutions to problems, Hogg declared that he, Hogg, was not going nearly far enough in his attacks.
Camerota called out Hogg, saying that she had spoken to the victim’s families and they have said that Rubio is doing a lot behind the scenes to try to fix problems. Camerota asked Hogg if he thought he should be at least giving some credit to Rubio for some of the changes that have taken place.
Hogg responded by snapping that the actions that Rubio and other lawmakers have taken have been insufficient, saying, “In reality these laws have more holes than Swiss cheese.”
“I guess my point is, is that if you’re trying to get everybody together, if you’re trying to have solutions, do you think it is helpful when you say things like, Marco Rubio is putting, you know, for a dollar and five cents or whatever your coupon said, that’s how much he values students?” Camerota responded. “I mean do you think that’s unnecessarily provocative?”
“No, I think it’s not enough — I don’t think it’s even provocative enough because I — Marco Rubio is still supported by the NRA, which works to ensure not the safety of gun owners and the safety of Americans everywhere, but to insure that they sell more guns,” Hogg responded.
During the segment, Hogg continued his pattern of lying, which goes unchecked by CNN, as he persists in trying to smear Republicans and the NRA.
The NRA’s bylaws explicitly state that the NRA exists to “promote public safety, law and order, and the national defense,” as well as to “promote hunter safety.”
The NRA’s primary function is to “protect and defend the Constitution of the United States, especially with reference to the inalienable right of the individual American citizen guaranteed by such Constitution to acquire, possess, collect, exhibit, transport, carry, transfer ownership of, and enjoy the right to use arms, in order that the people may always be in a position to exercise their legitimate individual rights of self-preservation and defense of family, person, and property, as well as to serve effectively in the appropriate militia for the common defense of the Republic and the individual liberty of its citizens.”
Hogg also falsely represented the Dickey Amendment.
Hogg said, “They’re passing right now, where they tried kind of fixing the Dickey Amendment, they didn’t give any more funding. What they did is they said like you officially can do research, but we just aren’t going to fund it.”
The legislation states: “None of the funds made available for injury prevention and control at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention may be used to advocate or promote gun control.”
