Hogg Booted from Gun-Control Organization for Shameless Money Grab?

David Hogg is no longer on the Board of March For Our Lives (MFOL), the student-led gun-control organization, after the former Parkland student was blasted on social media for leveraging his Internet fame and victim status to cash in on a new pillow venture that seeks to take on the conservative MyPillow guy, Mike Lindell.

March For Our Lives issued a statement, last week, explaining the move. 

“Today, March For Our Lives Co-Founder David Hogg decided that he will take a leave of absence from his position as Board Member to take some time for himself to reflect and recommit to the mission,” it read.

“We want our youth activists, supporters, and followers to know that the Good Pillow company is not associated with March For Our Lives,” it continued.

“Good Pillow,” is what Hogg is calling his company.  

Parkland survivor and MFOL co-founder Cameron Kasky was one of Hogg’s biggest critics.  While Kasky left MFOL in September of 2020, he couldn’t help but weigh in on Hogg’s Good Pillow business and how it blights the mission and work of MFOL.

“To those of you who marched, donated, lobbied, and called for change… I’m so sorry this is what it turned into.  This is embarrassing,” Kasky said on Twitter, Feb. 9, 2021.  But, welcome to America, everything ends up a grift.”

The next day, Kasky added more fuel to the fire. 

“I spent so much time promising people this wasn’t going to turn into a cash grab.  I am applying my clown makeup with the shame I deserve,” he tweeted.  

Hogg immediately rejected the notion that Good Pillow is a cash grab. 

“To all those questioning my intentions sincerely fuck off I refuse to feel guilty about wanting to help people and feed myself and pay for therapy,” he tweeted.  “You may not agree with how I do it— but ultimately I know what my intentions are — to help people.  I’ll prove it.” 

In a longer statement pinned to his account, Hogg evinced a more conciliatory tone. 

“To my fellow organizers and those I love most, I want to express my deepest apologies.  You all have been there for me through some of the roughest times of my life, and I also want to thank you for your continued practice of holding me accountable,” Hogg said.

He then went on to say that while he won’t be on the MFOL board he’ll still continue to “volunteer and help” the group in “any way I can.” 

What do you think of Hogg’s sudden pivot away from “gun violence prevention” and his headlong jump into the bedding and home decor sector?

    The best way this little choad could benefit society would be to leap into an active volcano. Otherwise, the market for $2 BJ’s is pretty small, despite it being the only thing that this rat faced choada boy woild have a chance at being good at.

    Oh, and I bet all his “pilows” will be good for is biting (which is likely also very experienced in).

    • Gregory Romeu February 21, 2021, 7:10 pm

      We all knew the boy blew a gasket before he even became known beyond his neighborhood. I’m surprised she wasn’t arrested for claiming to have PTSD?

  • Rollin_L February 20, 2021, 1:12 pm

    This chump is an attention Hogg. Opps, hog. One day, when no one takes him seriously and he has worn out his welcome with those who have learned not to trust him, he will be just another clown who couldn’t be content with his 15 minutes and, thus, took himself out.

    Why that sniveling little skinny snot head. PARKLAND SURVIVOR!? it’s my understanding that dip-shit wasn’t even there that day; not on school grounds. Trying to capitalize on his so-called fame? The only fame he’s got is he’s the biggest DICK the 2A has ever seen.

  • Janet Tomkins February 19, 2021, 2:28 pm

    D Hogg, from all appearances that I’ve seen on media, is an absolute, self-centered moron. He has no idea what he is talking about, generally spewing word salad of leftist talking points. He and Beto O’Rourke seem to be two of a kind and neither of them has anything useful to say.

  • RALPH GLORIOSO February 19, 2021, 2:19 pm

    I’ve always hoped that Hogg would marry Greta Thunberg and they would be so busy stumping around the world with their lunatic ideas that they’d have no time to procreate.

  • Joe February 19, 2021, 2:10 pm

    This disgusting pathetic loser is using the death of others to build some sort of image and presence for himself. The real victims should sue him for using the attack to further his money grabbing ways. A narcissist cares only for himself. He should be in jail for fraud. But we all know twitter (shitter) and others will not ban this commie scammer. Total PUKE.

  • kb31416 February 19, 2021, 1:31 pm

    … and just like that, he got on his bicycle and rode home to his dwelling place in mommy’s basement, where she had a fresh batch of warm cookies and his favorite cuddle blankie all waiting for him.

  • Punisher 6 February 19, 2021, 1:26 pm

    Ah, yes; marxists devouring their own. Priceless.
    And I don’t think that Mike Lindell is loosing any sleep over this.

  • Edward J Vercelli February 19, 2021, 1:24 pm

    I am a Parkland School Shooting Survivor. OH, wait a minute, I am 75 years old and heard about this tragedy on the news that day. How tragic is it that this little pukes mommy dragged him out of her basement to make him a leftist media darling.
    Was she that far behind on her rent that she was hoping that this scam would work for her to buy him some new diapers. This little scam artist is so full of crap that it is laughable. Why is it that there are those low lifes like this skinny, big head, runt of a despicable supposedly humanoid that will try to make a mockery of actual students who were there that day and actually have PTSD or were wounded, killed, maimed and their families who still have to live every day with this senseless tragedy.
    I wish this heartless turd and his equally worthless money grabbing family complete and utter financial ruin.

  • Danny MacDonald February 19, 2021, 12:50 pm

    Why do they keep calling this little worm a “survivor” when he wasn’t anywhere near the actual shooting?

  • MPGunther February 19, 2021, 11:56 am

    Let’s make one thing clear! This soy boy butt hole is NOT a survivor of Parkland, He wasn’t even there

    • Russ February 19, 2021, 2:13 pm

      Exactly, the pansy wasn’t there yet acts like he was. He is the typical lying hypocritical liberal.

    • kb31416 February 19, 2021, 3:51 pm

      I think that i see a common thread with these libtards. He is about as much of a survivor as Hil-liar-y Clinton was under sniper fire in Bosnia.
      I could go on, but that would be tiresome.

  • ray February 19, 2021, 11:54 am

    He actually looks like a hogg!

  • Budd February 19, 2021, 11:53 am

    LOL… The leftist/communist participants of MFOL (More Fools Offering Lunacy) also don’t like free-market capitalism. It just doesn’t fit into their utopian world of unicorns and pie-in-the-sky.

    • PB- dave February 19, 2021, 11:03 pm

      They are free to believe in their Unicorns, the problem is they expect their imaginary utopia(commune) to be funded by real people with real lives, real jobs, and real money that they work for. And if you don’t give it up , they will legislate a take-away to make the world “fair”.

  • Mark February 19, 2021, 11:51 am

    In this pathetic punks defense … it’s gotta be rough going through life trying to establish in the eyes of others that you’re a man when you have the shoulders of an 11 year old girl.

  • Norm Fishler February 19, 2021, 11:49 am

    All in all, the news has been pretty grim over the last several months, but I’ll have to say, this is one of the few high points.

  • Kane February 19, 2021, 11:46 am

    Actually, I am glad that Hogg is going into business and I do NOT care that the organization “March for Our Lives” (a rip off of the pro-life group “March for Life) is kicking him out. It will be interesting to see what Hogg and the people behind him can do in comparison with Mike Lindell. If Hogg and his backers can create jobs in the USA and give left wingers a place to put their heads at the end of the day then so be it but he will probably fail. Hogg’s former partners will jump if they ever get a chance for a big payday.

  • Big John February 19, 2021, 11:31 am

    He has the need to pay for therapy? Therapy for what? This clown wasn’t even there on the day of. Maybe therapy to get over his martyr complex.

  • Sleptym February 19, 2021, 10:20 am

    Survivor? What exactly has he “survived”? As I recall from the news reports, Hogg wasn’t anywhere near the school campus when the actual shooting occurred. I suspect he is more of a leftist puppet and economic opportunist than a survivor. Garbage in; garbage out. The left allows garbage into their ranks; the left has to deal with the garbage it outputs…… As the previous poster suggests will occur, I hope Mike Lindell wipes his a** with the Hogg.

  • Scott Syverson February 19, 2021, 9:42 am

    How does pretending to be a shooting survivor translate into manufacturing expertise? He certainly has a flair for marketing himself though… We’ve seen this show before – Remember Air America? It was going to deal a death blow to conservative talk radio, remember? The left with their collective/group bias thinks that political motivations are behind all buying actions. Could not be further from the science. Let’s review a little business history, shall we… Mike Lindell’s my pillow was never marketed as a conservative’s product. It was only after his product was successful did his views become known. He saw a problem , designed a product to fix that problem, and then mounted first a regional marketing campaign which was quickly expanded to national circulation. It was successful because while pillows are ubiquitous, no one was brand building for pillows – can you name another pillow brand that markets nationally? If you can’t sleep, you will do anything that will help resolve this problem. Hogg believes his name and political association will extend to purchases like George Foreman and his Grill. Hogg doesn’t understand the basic tenets of business or marketing. Lindell used himself as spokesman because he was proud of his product and manufacturing process. This sense of pride gives people confidence to try his product. The George Foreman Grill works because Foreman is a goofy, likeable cuss. Lindell is authentic. Hogg is unlikeable in the extreme. So if you’re a liberal and think the cancel culture is a good thing, please invest heavily in Hogg’s pillow venture. Put your life’s savings into it, please. I am sure your conscience will be rewarded as being a good collective/hive mind drone while your money vanishes.

  • Pete Faz February 19, 2021, 8:28 am

    To be a survivor of an incident -you need to be involved in a situation ,he was not.
    As to his fund raising I believe it is to pay for his transition surgeries and hormone therapy .

    • Altoids February 19, 2021, 9:34 am

      How could he be a “survivor”?

  • Joel Cameron February 19, 2021, 8:14 am

    MAN, the little boy has a trashy mouth and thinks his shit doesn’t stink as well. See when you’re a little punk, people think it’s cute that the little guy is standing up for something he knows nothing about. But as you get older you will be judged by your demeanor, and honestly, your has become the type that nobody wants around. Collar flipped up, got you some shades, walking around beating on your chest like you know what’s good for everybody when you don’t even know what’s good for you. Just on the outside looking in you thought you had another gold mine didn’t you. You were jumping up, run off leaving your little gun control group high and dry so that you can hopefully get you some brownie points as you making fun of the pillow man thinking you are going to be some kind of competitor to the pillow man. (LMMFAO) Then you stop turn around to see who all is in this little adventure with you. Well, Well, Well, to your surprise you are by yourself, and guess what, the group you left they don’t want you back (LMMFAO). I see you met KARMA, I’ve met her a couple of times in my life, she is someone that you don’t want to know on a 1st name basis, TRUST ME, she’s not your friend and she will try and convince you that she is. Oh well, good luck to you (yea right) Karma and yourself try to get along with each other, ya hear.

You’d think after a “tragic event” you would have a little bit more innocence in you. Oh no he came in completely normal an rehearsed. We should bring back pubilc execution.

  • DAVID MILLER February 19, 2021, 6:57 am

  • Alan Adams February 19, 2021, 6:53 am

    There was no doubt in my mind right from the start that this arrogant little weasel was going to try to cash in on this tragedy…pay for therapy my behind!! Has he ever dispelled the rumors that he wasn’t even at the school during the shooting and was seen riding his bicycle toward the school after the shooting was done?? So he could play the victim and line his pockets?? He, like Biden’s communist gun grab needs to fade into the sunset and leave the law abiding gun owners in this Country alone!!

    What is seriously funny here is that this little punk-ass thinks he can just hop-scotch his way from zero-to-millionaire just because Mike Lindell did it!

    Mike Lindell started his company against all odds and from virtually nothing, and built it into a large corporation that employs approximately 1,500 people along with exponential growth through excellent marketing, an excellent product line and superior service.

    “Camera-Hogg” as the great Rush Limbaugh once called him, doesn’t have a clue. He operates from a false premise that since he is the “media’s darling” espousing gun control, that this fake popularity they have helped him create for himself will take him places he would otherwise never see.

    Thinking that he will be an “overnight millionaire” in the pillow business is similar to the enormous list of democratic candidates in the 2020 primary, thinking they could just as easily step in as an outsider and win, just because the “outsider” Donald J. Trump stepped in and won the election in 2016.

    It’s laughable!

    Face it, this is a shameless attempt to put good people out of business. Even if one does not like Lindell, the man employs good people who may lose their jobs, just for the gratification of a two bit shill of a boy.
    Hogg is a jerk, plain and simple.

  • jeff February 17, 2021, 9:09 am

    It seems Hogg needs this venture to pay for his therapy. What about the people who were shot and survived? Hogg only cares about Hogg and it appears he will do what he can to make a fast buck.

  • JonsOn February 17, 2021, 9:07 am

    Hogg needs to take a few minutes and read the Constitution of the United States of America. Then he needs to take an English class to teach him what “infringe” means and what “shall not infringe” entails. Not one of the things this clown purposes is constitutional. Good luck with that pillow business. I wonder what he calls them “Moron Pillows”? “Assclown Pillows”? “Unconstitutional Pillows”? He’s a commie so how about “We Pillows” where everyone shares a pillow.

  • Old Number 5 February 17, 2021, 8:35 am

    Hogg thinks he can rip-off Mike Lindell’s (CEO of My Pillow) idea without doing the work and research needed to start a company and just sit back watch the money roll in. He might sell some pillows to some left wing fringe using his name but without a decent product the company won’t make it and he’ll just end up losing his investors money. Look on the My Pillow website and you’ll be impressed, they sell a lot more than just pillows. This shows a lot of work that Hogg won’t put into.

  • Greg Gerhard February 17, 2021, 7:52 am

      Does Hogg have a right to earn a living? Yes. Does Hogg have a right to be competitive with Lindell? Yes. Does he have a right to work towards banning guns? Yes. Is Hogg’s PTSD therapy working? NO. Did Hogg use the March’s money to start his business venture? Not enough information. Is Hogg unique in using his name to promote the business venture? Ask Hunter Biden. Will Lindell wipe his ass with Hogg? You betcha.

        Does DH have a right to earn a living? Interesting question. A lot of democrats would say the answer to that is no. He needs to depend on them. In fact he doesn’t have any of those rights you mentioned. Especially the right to work towards banning guns. That’s an actual right we all have. Says so in the Constitution.

    More evidence of “Common Sense”, rather than good sense…?
