Barack Obama Gives Glowing Praise To David Hogg, Kyle Kashuv Destroys Every Word

Parkland school shooting survivor David Hogg, who was nowhere near where the actual shooting took place, has become as annoying as a canker sore, especially to Kyle Kashuv. He is one of the students who has received the least attention because he supports the Constitutional right to bear arms. Kashuv has had it with the grandstanding of his fellow students — particularly captain boycott, David Hogg.

On Thursday, it was announced that David Hogg, Emma Gonzalez, Kyle Kasky and other anti-Second Amendment activists from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, as a group, were named as one of Time Magazine’s most influential people of 2018. In a shocking twist of irony, their write up in the magazine was penned by none other than former President Barack Obama, the same president who helped run guns to Mexican drug cartels with former Attorney General Eric Holder in Operation Fast & Furious.

Kashuv thought it was ridiculous, and he destroyed it on Twitter. “It’s an absolute shame that @BarackObama gives no credit to @rpetty and @AndrewPollackFL who actually got the legislation passed. ‘Already, they’ve [the Parkland students] had some success persuading statehouses and some of the biggest gun retailers to change,’” Kashuv wrote, mocking what President Obama said of the anti-gun Parkland students.

“Seared by memories of seeing their friends murdered at a place they believed to be safe, these young leaders don’t intimidate easily. They see the NRA and its allies—whether mealymouthed politicians or mendacious commentators peddling conspiracy theories—as mere shills for those who make money selling weapons of war to whoever can pay. They’re as comfortable speaking truth to power as they are dismissive of platitudes and punditry. And they live to mobilize their peers,” former President Obama wrote.

In typical Obama fashion, he used the write up to attack his political enemies, but he ignored the fact that the kids who are protesting the loudest did not see anyone murdered. They were far from the actual shooting. But Ryan Petty and Andrew Pollack, whose children were killed in the shooting and who also support the right to bear arms, are ignored by Obama and his shills in the mainstream media. As should be expected from the former president, his write up “for the Parkland students” sounded a lot more like a campaign speech to elect Democrat politicians.

“Already, they’ve had some success persuading statehouses and some of the biggest gun retailers to change. Now it gets harder. A Republican Congress remains unmoved. NRA scare tactics still sway much of the country. Progress will be slow and frustrating,” Obama wrote.

“But by bearing witness to carnage, by asking tough questions and demanding real answers, the Parkland students are shaking us out of our complacency. The NRA’s favored candidates are starting to fear they might lose. Law-abiding gun owners are starting to speak out. As these young leaders make common cause with African Americans and Latinos—the disproportionate victims of gun violence—and reach voting age, the possibilities of meaningful change will steadily grow,” he continued.

Kyle Kashov responded, “This is so rich coming from @BarackObama.”

It was Barack Obama’s gun running scandal that led to countless deaths both in Mexico and the United States, including the murder of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry. Armed with only bean bag rounds, because Border Patrol agents were not allowed to shoot at the drug runners coming from the Mexican side of the border, Terry was shot and killed in front of his fellow agents in December 2010.

“As a former president, @BarackObama, shouldn’t you be supportive of anyone executing their #1A and commend all the students from MSD (esp ones who lost loved ones) that are adding to the dialogue? Why do you only recognize those who you agree with? Seems asinine and un-American,” Kashuv wrote.

Barack Obama is praising the efforts of select Parkland students, not because of their anti-gun efforts, though that is a bonus for liberals. He is praising their efforts to elect Democrats and mitigate the influence of The National Rifle Association. Obama, much like Hogg, is using the deaths of the Parkland kids to promote his own agenda, and that is truly sad.
