Florida shooting survivor Hogg won't accept Ingraham's apology over mocking tweet

Source: Politico




By CRISTIANO LIMA 03/30/2018 10:18 AM EDT

Florida shooting survivor David Hogg declined on Friday to accept Fox News host Laura Ingraham’s apology over a tweet mocking him, saying she’s only expressing remorse because a flurry of advertisers dropped her program.

Hogg, who called for companies to boycott the talk show host after she derided the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School student over several college application rejections, framed Ingraham’s apology as insufficient and self-serving. Pressed on whether he'd accept her apology, he replied, "No."

“She’s only apologizing after a third of her advertisers pulled out and I think it’s really disgusting the fact that she basically tried promoting her show after apologizing — or ‘apologizing’ to me,” Hogg told CNN during an interview Friday.

Ingraham issued an apology for her remarks Thursday after several advertisers announced they were cutting ties with the program.

1. Good for him.

 

Fuck "turning the other cheek" with these Republican assholes. We are long past the point of normal and reasonable public discourse with these conspiracy freak clowns.

He's right, she only apologized after she got in trouble and it hit her bottom line.

Don't let up, Mr. Hogg. Good for you.

Our elected officials could learn more than a few things from your fortitude and strength when faced with dealing with these psychopaths.

FUCK YOU, Ingraham. I hope your show gets yanked and you get fired. You could stand to do some time on unemployment, examining your conscience (assuming you even have one, that is).

5. He told Andrea Mitchell that he won't accept

her apology since, "It wasn't sincere and was used to advertise her show". He also said that she is a bully and did this to someone at Dartmouth and a few other times so that makes her a bully. "She bullies people and needs to be held accountable". Now he is busy working on the Town Hall For Our Lives April 7th.

March For Our Lives TOWN HALLS April 7th.
The students and communities who support stricter gun legislation are encouraging citizens to call and arrange town halls in your district on April 7th (before they head back to DC). They organized a site with help from Town Hall Project (Town Hall For Our Lives).
These young people are getting people registered to vote and are going through the legislative process for change and on April 7, they’re calling for every member of Congress to hold a town hall.

“If your local legislator refuses to come for whatever reason, simply invite their opponent,” Hogg told us. “It's as simple as that.”

Town Hall Project empowers constituents across the country to have face-to-face conversations with their elected representatives. We are campaign veterans and first time volunteers. We come from a diversity of backgrounds and live across the country. We share progressive values and believe strongly in civic engagement.

6. Hogg Is Correct

She did not retract her hateful words making it a non-apology apology. It is not her words that are the problem. It is those pesky advertisers that are taking their business elsewhere that are the problem. She hasn't stopped digging and more advertisers have dropped her. Good for them. And good for Hogg.

Our Democrats have been good, but they must continue to stay strong...they need to be as strong as David Hogg has been!
