David Hogg FINALLY Goes Back to School, Then TAKES OFF AGAIN – Here’s Why (VIDEO)

David Hogg

David Hogg has been out of class at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School since the tragic Valentine’s Day shooting took the lives of 17 students and staff. He claimed he would not go back until politicians made the school environment safe.

However, Hogg did return to Douglas on Friday, at least momentarily. He then turned around and took off out of the school again. It was all political theater, as it turned out, which he recorded on his phone and shared via social media.

The stunt was part of the National Walkout Day, which was held on the anniversary of the Columbine school shooting, which many point to as the first in the modern trend of school mass shootings. The effort is calling on politicians to support new gun restrictions.

Hogg teased the walkout first thing on Friday morning. “Who’s ready to change the world and save lives? #NationalSchoolWalkout,” he tweeted.

He then started making excuses for the logic of the walkout, blaming politicians and their inaction on the gun control issue. “Why should we be expected to work in school when our elected officials won’t work to ensure safety and security of our citizens, children and future?”

He then filmed himself walking out of class in protest, sharing the video on social media.

He then turned things political again.

He then plugged his effort to force politicians to stop supporting the National Rifle Association and refuse NRA donations. “@TheDemocrats @GOP have your candidates/elected officials that don’t take money from the @NRA sign the @noNRAmoney pledge so voters can be informed on who takes money and doesn’t. #noNRAmoney” he tweeted.

Hogg then revealed that he was a “proud” member of the ACLU, which has pushed for a gun ban.

Thousands of students walked out of class on Friday across the country as part of National Walkout Day.
