David Hogg Urges Greene To Apologize To Families of Shooting Victims

Parkland shooting survivor David Hogg is calling on Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) to apologize to families of shooting victims after expressing doubt over whether the events happened.

She previously questioned whether the Parkland shooting was planned and called Hogg a “paid actor.”

Greene expressed support for comments on Facebook in 2018 suggesting the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting was a “staged” event.

She also considered on Facebook whether the Las Vegas massacre in 2017 was part of a conspiracy to enforce gun control.

CNN’s Alisyn Camerota on Friday asked Hogg about his thoughts regarding Greene’s suggestion she could relate to what he went through.

“The thing I care most about in this situation isn’t so much myself, but it’s the real people that she offended, which are the families in Parkland and Las Vegas and Sandy Hook that have a permanently empty bedroom, that have a permanently empty place at the dinner table,” Hogg said.

He continued, “They’re the people that are the real victims here that deserve the apology, not me. And that’s really what upsets me is that she’s detracting from their suffering and their experience because she can’t know their pain.”

Watch his interview below:

He argued she cannot know the pain these families have experienced because “they had the worst possible thing in the world happen to them.”

Hogg continued, “They are the ones that deserve an apology.”

Late last month, Hogg called on House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) to strip Greene of her committee assignments over her comments, as IJR previously reported.

“My message to Kevin McCarthy is take all of her committee assignments away, along with that also, don’t support her when she runs for re-election again, and try to get her primaried,” Hogg said.

He added, “If you say this is not your party, actually call it out and hold her accountable because Republicans always act as if they’re the party of decency and respect, but would the party of decency and respect question whether or not school shootings happened?”

House Democrats voted to strip Greene of her committee assignments on Thursday night, as IJR reported.

    1. Vayjay thinks he’s important. Hypocritical that he thinks his hate speech is OK. Of course, he’s a Democrat and feels only he has rights.

        1. Confused Squat Vayjay, as usual, you and Squat are right where you are expected to be. I’m glad to see you’re amused Vayjay. Giving little warm fuzzies to the mentally challenged, such as yourselves, always makes for a good day. Seeing your infantile, sandbox responses is particularly funny. The small minds of the gullible Democrat sheep make me wish I had more than a brief time to tease. Have fun with your keyboards.

          1. Are you certain calling D’s “gullible” after Jan 6th Trumpers believed they overturn a fair and free election by storming the Capitol? Same Trumpers believed the VPOTUS had the authority to overturn election results certified by the 50 states and District of Columbia. Same Trumpers believed Trump would pardon them. Same Trumpers claimed to believe “massive election fraud” claims that were not proven in a court of law. Same Trumpers believed a wall would stop illegal entry of drugs and people even after Border Inspectors reported that 95% of illegal entry occurs at legal points of entry. Are you not one of the IJR posters that claimed the Jan 6th insurgents were “Antifa”? Still looking for an arrest that is NOT a Trumper.

            Perhaps you need to share what your working definition of “gullible” or “sheep” entails.

    1. Yes he does with that manly facial hair. He wasn’t even there at the time. He rode his bike home to get his camera. Or was it to hide in his closet?

      1. Does it make you feel better to claim to believe the crazy unfounded crap you post? Are you thinking it will get you a seat in Congress as it did MTG?
