Tucker Carlson Takes Down David Hogg on National Television

Kirsters Baish| As we look back on the Parkland, Florida high school shooting, we have to stop and wonder when this tragedy turned into the spark that ignited a political war. The left has waged an all out war on the Second Amendment, all while taking advantage of impressionable teenage survivors of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting.

One student whose name we have come to know because of rampant media coverage is David Hogg. If you own a television, computer, smart phone, or have seen a magazine cover in the last few weeks, you know his face and you know his stance. Hogg has become the poster boy for the alt-left anti-Second Amendment movement in America.

Hogg calls anyone who points out that he is not an expert on the Constitution insensitive. While Hogg is certainly a shooting survivor and he deserves the right to have his own opinions on gun control, he and his fellow protesters will not listen to reason and discuss possible solutions to the issues at hand. He would rather soak up his 15 minutes of fame. He has allowed the left to turn him into a child soldier.

Fox News host Tucker Carlson wasn’t shy about his opinion on what is going on in America. During his Friday show, Carlson was going through an analysis of David Hogg and Emma Gonzalez’s points. These two students are two of the most vocal anti-gun Parkland survivors. Carlson called the pair extremists who are “definitely not fit to be making policy for the rest of us.”

Carlson explained, “A handful of teens from Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida, they have a right to their views, obviously. This is a given. But the rest of us also have rights including the right to assess what they are saying and decide whether it ought to become law to which we are subject. These are not religious figures; we are not the faithful. We’re all citizens here. Let’s take a look at what they are saying and decide if it’s a good idea or not.”
