Parkland Shooting Survivor Calls on Kevin McCarthy to Hold Marjorie Taylor Greene ‘Accountable’

Parkland shooting survivor David Hogg is urging House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) to stand up to Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) after a video resurfaced of her confronting Hogg.

CNN’s Alisyn Camerota noted at the time Greene was chasing after Hogg and “heckling” him she was not an elected leader. The video is from March of 2019.

She mentioned Greene has just been assigned “a plum assignment to be on the education, the House education and labor committee.”

Camerota asked Hogg what his message is to McCarthy about whether Greene is “equipped” to hold the position.

“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 continued, “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?”

Watch his comments below:

Hogg argued, “Would they harass the survivors of these shootings for having different opinions than them? I don’t think so and I think if Kevin McCarthy doesn’t think so either, he needs to actually stand up and do something about this congresswoman.”

In the video, Greene is seen following Hogg asking him about gun laws.

She later calls him a “coward” for being unable to “defend his stance.”

Greene told CNN that the video was when she was in Washington, D.C., “going from office to office in the Senate to oppose the radical gun control agenda that David Hogg was pushing.”

Watch the video below:

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton took to Twitter to weigh in on a report that Greene indicated support for the execution of top Democrats in old social media posts, as IJR reported.

“This woman should be on a watch list. Not in Congress,” Clinton wrote.

Mark Bednar, a spokesperson for McCarthy, told Axios he plans to discuss the past comments with Greene.

“These comments are deeply disturbing and Leader McCarthy plans to have a conversation with the Congresswoman about them,” Bednar said.

  1. Wow such angry bitter people (except general and Jay)
    Man your lives must be really miserable to pick on a young person like this.
    Nastiness and negativity—you’re getting nowhere.
    Any of you have children? Any of you want your children’s school shot up? Any of you want an actual INTELLIGENT child who knows how to communicate and is willing to do it publicly? Probably couldn’t handle the intelligence

    1. Thanks, Jason. I just came in here to post something similar, but now I don’t have to add much.

      I find it disconcerting that so many especially older people find it so necessary to attack the younger generation so viciously. And they do it over the worst reasons or causes. I mean, dead teenagers? Give me a break!

      1. For real—to attack him they’re basically attacking all school children who would ask for one simple thing, can we go to school and not be shot dead. But if they talk about it publicly they get bashed by nasty bitter adults. Like I asked them, can they handle having an intelligent child, I know for sure they cannot. They’re too weak and insecure

  2. Where did they find him? Thought we heard the last of him years ago
    By the way Allison, Nancy Pelosi has kept the Chinese boy toy, Eric Swalwell, on the Intelligence Committee. Why don’t you try doing some journalistic work for a change>

  3. This pussy must be taking testosterone pills to grow that little beard. Hogg’s been shaving for two years. Cut himself both times.

    1. Your pussy’s been taking testosterone and it’s obviously still not working hahahaha

  4. isn’t this the kid that claimed to be a survivor but wasn’t even at the school…. what a tool

  5. Well, Hogg boy, I think that nearly 200 million people in this country who are legal gun owners would disagree with your ‘personal problems’. First of all, you weren’t even at school when the shooting happened. You used this tragic shooting to make a name for yourself. It worked. We now call you Little Hitler. Doesn’t matter how many rallies you hijack, how many poisonous tweets and emails you send out. You’re still a punk choosing to put your personal success over the ABSOLUTE RIGHT we have to protect ourselves, our loved ones, our communities and our country. And we have a Constitutional guarantee of our rights to carry arms. History lesson, punk: in WW2, Japanese Admiral Yamamoto refused to attack our mainland, saying that in America, ‘there’s a rifle behind every blade of grass’. Neither you, your anti-gunner moms and teacher’s, THIS Pope, the UN, or this Democrat nightmare of our current government will EVER take our right’s from us.
    I will obey ANY laws your leaders come up with that CRIMINALS will obey. Over 1,000 CHILDREN are killed every year with ILLEGAL guns in gang-related activities, most of them young black boys in poor neighborhoods. Are these children not as important as the Parkland kids? Do not their friends and families weep for them? Are they lesser people because they’re black and poor? When I see your skinny butt out these adressing THEIR problems and concerns I would have a sliver of respect for you. Here’s an idea for you: you, Beto, AOC, Swalwell and other gun-hating politicians should go house to house trying to confiscate weapons. Yeah, that’ll work.
    And BTW, don’t expect any calls from Hollywood, backboard. You haven’t managed to grow a chin yet.

    1. Wow you’re really an angry bitter decrepit ugly example of a human. Actually you aren’t human for using all your punk words and your bull crap. You need a life. You’ve been abused haven’t you. Ok I have sympathy for you you poor decrepit excuse. Try to get some help—even though you’re a nasty skank someone will Try to help you and your deep rooted hostility and bitterness

  6. Want his 5 minutes of fame over? Who gave this kid a platform again? Someone put the pacifier back in this whiners mouth

    1. Only the “right wing, pry my assault rifle from my dead hands” idiots can try and put the blame on victims of gun violence. Very sick people

      1. hay hay… he wasn’t even at school when this went down… he’s just playing it up like he cares.. the only thing this kid cares about is being famous for a couple minutes from his friends being killed…. he’s a dink… get over your self or your dinked too…

        1. He “cares” Dicker. Can you say the same? His school was shot up and he had friends die. But all you obviously care about is your gun rights. Do you have children DICK?? If you do then it’s a good thing they didn’t go to Parkland right??

          1. To be a liar you have to first prove that I am a liar, but you have never yet given ANY verifiable evindence to be able to do that, Chuck. That would require some effort on your part, right, Chuck?

        1. And if he were his boyfriend what about it? As if that’s a negative? There’s a negative here, you hahahahaha

    2. You’d like something in your mouth chad but not a pacifier right? You want the real thing. The longer thicker one

  7. It was so nice that he was quiet for four years. seems a dem comes to power and COCKroaches come out. David hogg is another one. quick turn on the lights maybe he will scurry away.

    1. Can’t handle reality huh? Get used to it cause David and no other intelligent young people are going away. They’re going to TAKE OVER! And you’ll be in your wheel chair asking for their help

  8. Why is he called ‘A survivor from the Parkland shooting?’ He wasn’t even there! Just another d-bag wanting some attention.

    1. “Who gave this kid a platform again?” Chad

      Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) did.

      If you had read the article, you would know who it was, unless you are just trying to play dumb.

      1. Confused Squat Dogfart – Who cares what this Liberal twat says? He wants to deprive citizens of their rights, the goal of all lying, cheating, corrupt election stealing liberals/democrats.

        1. Oh yes because retrumplicans are very honest and don’t cheat or lie or TRY TO STEAL ELECTIONS! You follow that orange 🍊 and you’re in the same place his followers who stormed the capital are in—wondering why their leader abandoned them. If you wanna win, become a democrat

    2. Yeah, I was wondering the same thing, this pissant comes out and tries to be a hero to something he was no ways close to. He’s a mouthy coward as far as I’m concerned !!!

    3. And you? Are you not a d bag looking for attention. Your question is completely senseless

  9. What’s duh matter Davey? Did the wittle girl scare you with the truuf? Were you afraid she’d corner you with the truuf and you wouldn’t be able to defend your views? Dat’s OK just run away fast and the girlie won’t get you.
