Michael Moore Snatches Mic Away After Hogg Urges Foreign Meddling In US Elections

Elder Patriot – It’s always been a source of wonderment for me how the left adopted seventeen-year-old David Hogg as their spiritual leader.

Hogg once again made a fool out of himself, this time while accompanying Michael Moore to the Canadian premiere of his anti-Trump film Fahrenheit 11/9.

The virulently Trump-hating Moore had asked Hogg to accompany him to the Toronto Film Festival where he almost immediately inserted his foot into his mouth once he was handed the microphone.

Hogg, reverted to the leftist tactic of turning shame into votes:

“I have a question for you guys: Who’s ready to save America? Who’s ready to make America the country we say it is on paper and make it the actual country that it wants to be?.”

Whoa!  What in the world do Canadians have to do with American politics?  Read on:

“I think the most important thing to realize, however, is the problems we face as a country, whether it be water in Flint, Michigan or the amount of mass incarceration of people of color that can’t vote.”

Not their problem.  So where was the boy wonder going?  Here comes the ask. Hogg suggested that Canadians should donate to the campaigns of leftist politicians.

Oops.  The boy genius was asking Canadians to commit a felony and Michael Moore realized it as the words were spewing forth from Hogg’s mouth.  Moore grabbed the microphone away from Hogg as quickly as he could.

Only American citizens can make political contributions to candidates running for office in the United States.  

A short time later Hogg was again given the opportunity to speak and this time he turned to spewing hyperbolic nonsense accusing President Trump of getting $30 million dollars from Russia with the NRA acting to launder the payoff.

The Center for Responsive Politics claims the NRA spent more than $30 million to back President Trump’s candidacy.

The NRA does not deny that they spent that amount supporting the Trump candidacy but, according to a report by CNN, their secretary and general counsel John Frazer cleared the record

“While we do receive some contributions from foreign individuals and entities, those contributions are made directly to the NRA for lawful purposes.  Our review of our records has found no foreign donations in connection with a United States election, either directly or through a conduit.”

Even CNN admitted it’s not illegal for interest groups such as the NRA to accept contributions from foreign donors.  Any such group would only run afoul of the law if that money were used for electioneering purposes.

Following an inquiry by Senator Ron Wyden, there was no finding of wrongdoing by the NRA’s political action committee, the NRA Political Victory Fund.

But, for this new breed of Democrats, the truth is secondary to the severity of the accusation.  And, that explains why David Hogg, a boy with little life experience and even less knowledge of the law, has become the darling of the left.

The new, radicalized, emotional, unthinking left never lets facts, or the law, get in the way of disparaging their political opponents.
