David Hogg Tweets Bizarre Claim That ‘Indigenous LGBTQ Women’ Started Gun-Control Movement in 1800’s

Well, that didn’t take long.

After only one semester at Harvard University, anti-gun activist David Hogg has already started making bizarre claims about race, history, and gun control. It’s not the 19-year-old’s first off-the-wall comment (far from it), but this revisionist history sounds like something that can only originate in our centers of higher learning.

In a tweet posted earlier this week, Hogg appeared to claim that the “gun violence prevention movement” was started “centuries ago” by “almost entirely black, brown and indigenous lgbtq women and non binary people.”

As noted by the Washington Examiner, Hogg has a history of making strange connections between the gun rights debate and racial issues. Last year he said in an interview with MSNBC that pro-gun culture has roots in genocide and white supremacy.

“I think it comes down to reckoning with our history and our history of white supremacy in the United States and the fact that we live in a post-genocidal society oftentimes that was orchestrated by the United States government,” he said.

Hogg did not clarify his claim in subsequent tweets, and he hasn’t responded to the thousands of (hilarious) replies. Check out a few of our favorites:

If it isn’t already obvious, gun control didn’t originate in “non-binary” communities in the 1800’s. In fact, gun control has a long history of racial discrimination, as we’ve covered here, here, and here.

After slavery was outlawed, many gun-control laws were written with the sole intent of restricting gun ownership for African Americans. That mindset has continued in more recent years with the prohibition of cheap firearms (e.g., “Saturday Nigh Specials”), and may-issue concealed carry permit laws that allow law enforcement to deny the right to bear arms to certain groups of people.

The truth is, the right to keep and bear arms was a critical component of the Civil Rights movement in the 1960s, and both Rosa Parks and Martin Luther King, Jr., obtained gun licenses.

It’s unclear who or what Hogg is referencing in his tweet, but it’s a historical fact that most “indigenous women” in our country’s history would have appreciated less gun control, not more.

    Sounds like hogwash

  • Ted February 7, 2020, 12:14 pm

    Wait…LGBT was a thing in the 1800s? The term even existed in the 1800s? There actually were gender issue people that would be brave enough to come out in the 1800s? I would think that such a person would be shot or lynched on the spot. Maybe that’s why they were such gun control freaks. I gotta get a copy of that history text book that Hogg is studying from. His history professor must be a genius!

  • Ted February 7, 2020, 12:04 pm

    Well…his head shape reminds me of the alien head associated with Area 51. Any correlation, I wonder?

  • SeppW February 6, 2020, 2:30 am

    Hogg is a card-carrying member of the incapable and unproductive guild and a stooge for the anti-gun apparatchiks.

  • Wiz February 1, 2020, 5:33 pm

    This mutt deserves the old adage which is “Ignore him and he will go away”. Maybe just maybe.

  • alex January 31, 2020, 11:18 pm

    did you see his eyes,he looks nuts. this idiot will be doing the next mass shooting,he has the tell tale signs.

  • Pat J January 31, 2020, 7:52 pm

    Young Hogg, certainly there are notable exceptions, but most everything in your life that brings you comfort, convenience, safety, health, and enterprise was brought to you by white men. White men, young Hogg.
    These life-enhancing benefits have also been provided to homosexual females regardless their tint, and the confused and unsettled in what should be their privacy. Speak less for a while, and read everything, David.

  • Beachhawk January 31, 2020, 4:48 pm

    I think David Hogg’s “use by date” has expired. He has had his 15 minutes of fame.

  • Sam January 31, 2020, 2:58 pm

    David Hogg is a racists!

  • Max Hoyle January 31, 2020, 2:57 pm

    David the Hogg is such a gay-bo? DI think that he’s a lesbian!

  • Mike January 31, 2020, 1:12 pm

    Could there be a bigger “Crack Head” than David Hogg?

  • Michael J January 31, 2020, 12:44 pm

    Sure, government wanted gun control. For everyone but certain people who didn’t fit the stereotype.

  • ea January 31, 2020, 12:10 pm

    Young Hogg may look like a mortise chisel, but he’s not the sharpest tool on the workbench. Actually, there isn’t even anything here to work with. Now, I do think he and Greta would make a lovely couple. I’m not sure why he wasn’t invited to speak at Davos. And like fair, angry Greta, he too should be spanked and sent to his room.

  • Norm Fishler January 31, 2020, 11:53 am

    If there was ever anyone upon whom I wished homosexuality it would be David Hogg. Can you imagine what his offspring would turn out like?

  • J Franks January 31, 2020, 11:53 am

    We should all start mailing him sex toys, lacy underwear, and rainbow striped high capacity magazines.

  • jspat January 31, 2020, 10:15 am

    I believe D. H . Mother is ABC news person and his Father is an FBI agent

    • John January 31, 2020, 4:29 pm

      If that is true, then that explains how he gets the undeserved publicity that he gets.
      It also shows what you get from an ABC fakenews person and an FBI agent…
      A reject.

  • Sleptym January 31, 2020, 9:37 am

    His gleeful ignorance provides living proof of the continued desire for the constant use of contraceptive devices by the libtards on the left.

    • John Rogers January 31, 2020, 2:52 pm

      He could be the poster child for the Pro Choice folks. I’ve heard his face described as “extremely punchable”.

  • Russ January 31, 2020, 9:37 am

    Just more proof of the stupidity in this one. Hopefully someday he will wise up. Every time he opens his mouth he improves his imbecile rating.

  • rsmalt January 31, 2020, 8:46 am

    Words fail me. This reads like a scene from “Idiocracy.”

    • John January 31, 2020, 4:35 pm

      That is so true!
      Anything the lunatic fringe leftists say belongs in “Idiocracy”.
      “Idiocracy” is their documentary.

    • Singleshotcajun February 1, 2020, 9:25 am

      Mike Judge is a prophet

  • Pat Bryan January 31, 2020, 8:36 am

    Old fat White men have a history of making strange connections between the gun rights debate and racial issues too. The purpose of the “Well-regulated Militia” was to catch runaway slaves.

    • KO January 31, 2020, 11:39 am

      Perhaps you should propose that brilliant interpretation as your thesis for your Masters in American History to the staff at Harvard. If the genius of Hogg defines their current admissions standards, you’d go to the head of the line!

    • Michael Maynard February 1, 2020, 11:06 am

      *yawn* Hyperbole much? Your revisionism is noted.

  • Ziggy January 31, 2020, 8:29 am

    Get a picture of Timothy McVeigh and look at the two of them.

  • Hendrik Haan January 31, 2020, 7:21 am

    Little Hogg must be learning history from Harvard’s indigenous instructors like Pocahontas. He has a long way to go to be as knowledgeable as Greta Thunberg, though. The MSM sure loves these idiot savants.

  • Anthony Romano January 31, 2020, 6:50 am

    Thanks Dave Hogg you just made mind mind up about which AR to buy. I’ve been checking them out for a few weeks now so the S&W M&P AR it will be! It’s a great rifle from a great company!

    • rsmalt January 31, 2020, 8:45 am

      Great choice. Bought a S&W M&P-10 four years ago, tricked out in Real Tree camo. Mounted a Nikkon Pro Staff scope on it (also in Real Tree camo), and it’s been my primary deer rifle since then.

    • Phid Emore January 31, 2020, 11:22 am

      Good choice. Any operational concerns aside for the moment, in this case I might have felt compelled to get one of the Trump-marked receivers assuming that I would notify David “Camera” Hoff of my choice.

  • DAVID MILLER January 31, 2020, 6:36 am

    His mommy is ABC big shot when he graduates 3 years you will see him in news at every gun report just like geraldo started as bleeding heart

    • Dan January 31, 2020, 7:43 am

      If that is true that his mommy is an ABC big shot, that could explain how he got the publicity that he does not deserve. Otherwise, he would just be another stupid no name moron, like millions of others…

  • Leighton Cavendish January 31, 2020, 6:16 am

    Has he been taking magic mushrooms again?

    • Dan January 31, 2020, 7:40 am

      Either that, or maybe he forgot to take his brain meds.

  • Hondo January 31, 2020, 6:14 am

    Does anyone care what this bed wetting cuck has to say ?

  • Dr. Strangelove January 31, 2020, 6:05 am

    Hogg should read a history book himself. Or, in the words of one of his peers, “How dayah you!”

  • hugo January 31, 2020, 5:24 am

    Warren and Sanders want to provide free college to all so they can all end up ignorant morons like Mr. Hogg.

  • Will Drider January 30, 2020, 11:25 pm

    Its a fine line between a few moments of fame and a few moments shame. He’s just a publicity seeker. Though It’s humorous, we shouldn’t feed his desire for attention; other media will call him out on it because of his stupidity.

  • Frank Vazquez January 30, 2020, 8:53 pm

    Well after years of an established educational system and thousands of books, teachers and historians, thank goodness David Hogg came along to set us all straight.

    The Democrats created this puppet and now he is an autonomous, self absorbed douche bag. Good job Democrats in misleading and brainwashing another youth for the purpose of fueling your propaganda machine. Now this poor boy will be a clueless moron for the rest of his life and continue to annoy the rest of us with a full cerebral cortex for the rest of our lives. You chew up the minds of these impressionable kids and leave them as fools to suffer public backlash while your group moves on to other innocent children.

    And by the way, it needs to be said, gun control and bans won’t stop violence, but simply shift more power into the hands of elitist politicians. It’s been proven in Venezuela that no gun ownership means and oppressed citizenry and people in Britain are now beaten or stabbed to death when criminals don’t have guns. They are defenseless and no liberal solutions have been enacted to secure their safety. And as they protest gun ownership, the rich and powerful are still protected by security personnel with licenses to carry.

  • Phil Whitehead January 30, 2020, 7:15 pm

    Who… I ask WHO… Really gives even a half of a small shit what this nitwit has to say? REALLY… Who?

  • Bear January 30, 2020, 6:12 pm

    Mr Hogg is in serious need of a mental evaluation.

    • Area52 January 31, 2020, 5:21 am

      Those that allowed him to attend Harvard deserve a mental evaluation.

      • Dan January 31, 2020, 7:56 am

        Harvard is one of several well known propaganda indoctrination schools.
        Many misguided and deluded famous people came from Harvard or one of the other indoctrination schools. Yes, many of the staff and teachers there probably also need some mental evaluation, as do many politicians.

  • Alan January 30, 2020, 5:21 pm

    Strange comments from an obviously strange person.

    He is not news, just a misguided child seeking attention.

  • kjj1564 January 30, 2020, 3:25 pm

    Did we expect anything less than socialist gibberish to come out of student mouths attending Harvard University! Especially when hog was a far left gun hating snow flake before he went in. I give him one year before he flunks out of Harvard!

  • Danun January 30, 2020, 3:09 pm

    eighteen-year olds can be trained to use the world’s most powerful weapons against third-world countries, and their innocent woman, and children, yet hardly anyone bats an eye.
    getting rid of guns solves everything ………. London Assembly figures showed there were 14,521 knife crime offenses in the capital in the 12 months to January 2018, with stabbings in London at their highest level in six years, a 23 percent rise from the previous year.

    Of course HOGG is not about to VOLUNTEER to serve the Nation …. he/she is too bust stuffing her purse with money from a shooting which he/she was THREE MILES away from ……. yes Hogg was safe at home when that shooting happened, and rushed there to get in front of the cameras.

  • D.J. January 30, 2020, 2:44 pm

    Are we still listening to this undereducated neocommunist ?

    Did his fifteen minutes of fame not expire over a year ago ?

    Someone , please , duct tape that little insurgent’s mouth shut !

    Thank you all for your indulgence .

  • Bob Ailanjian January 30, 2020, 2:30 pm

    Lemme see now. The whole gun thing is about the gun crowd being total racists? Then please explain the middle 1950’s…when the Klan was running crazy, attacking Black people at will. The saviors of Black people, the Democrats did nothing got help them. In fact, they totally ignored what was happening. Too busy voting down Eisenhower’s Civil Rights Legislation, no doubt. No, Black WWII vets that were going against the Klan, were helped, were helped by NONE other than the NRA , in arming and training Black civilians to protect themselves. Those lousy gun owning racists!!!!!

  • Konrad Lau January 30, 2020, 2:14 pm

    This tells you loads about the state of the modern media.
    Even Yellow Journalists would have laughed at these comments.
    He’ll probably wind up being the governor of California when he grows up.

    • Scott January 30, 2020, 4:08 pm

      Or New York – the California of the east coast.

      • Dan January 31, 2020, 8:00 am

        Or another fake news talking head on some fake news channel…

  • Charles E Moore January 30, 2020, 2:01 pm

    It’s also a shame that the internet has ignored them for the past 200 or 300 years as well!

    demeaning to its students

    no other school would take this hitler looking moron Hogg… he is despised by most at his old HS.. just a POS person

  • teyegrrpauwz January 30, 2020, 1:48 pm

    D.H. is an idiot moron who is just trying to keep his name in the news.
    Biggest mistake the news made was interview him. He now thinks he’s a celebrity.
    He also sounds Prejudice against anyone who isn’t white.
    D.H. has no respect for anyone.

  • catawampus January 30, 2020, 12:49 pm
