David Hogg Tries ANOTHER Boycott of Laura Ingraham – He Didn’t Expect This to Happen Instead (VIDEO)


David Hogg is on the warpath again with a familiar target: Fox News host Laura Ingraham. He is not getting the victory he had hoped for, however.

Ingraham earned the wrath of Hogg when she made an off-the-cuff remark about the child separation issue in immigration. Ingraham likened some of the facilities the separated children were staying at as similar to summer camp.

While the comment may be ill-formed, it was obviously not in reference to the fenced-in areas where some children and other migrants stay in upon first arrival. In truth, those are only temporary holding cells until individuals are processed and moved on to more civil facilities. Ingraham was referring to the facilities they eventually move on to, which are far better and offer more amenities.

Ingraham’s critics are not making that distinction, however. In an effort to score political points, that one comment is being taken out of context in order to create a controversy.

Hogg took to social media, calling for an advertiser boycott, much like he did when Ingraham criticized him for complaining that he wasn’t accepted into his first choice for college. For a time, Ingraham lost a number of advertisers, although most came back.

His new effort to punish Ingraham, however, isn’t going as well as he had hoped.

Here is David Hogg’s tweet that started his latest rampage against Ingraham.

He then gets cocky, teasing what he has in mind.

Then he starts to celebrate a bit prematurely, assuming his latest extortion attempt will work on Ingraham’s advertisers. He also doesn’t seem to know exactly what “capitalism” is.

And then he drops “the list,” assuming these companies will just cower to his demands.

He then retweeted this from former Marjory Stoneman Douglas student and current gun grabber Matt Deitsch, who was attempting to shame Cabela’s into submission.

He also retweeted Grant Stern of Occupy Democrats, who tried his best to appear really upset with Ingraham. He also reminded everyone that she had the nerve to insult Hogg once, and needed to be put in her place again.

The boycott, however, never materialized.

Even The Hollywood Reporter admits the boycott effort fell flat.

So far, none of her advertisers has publicly pledged to pull out, despite the backlash. Of the more than 10 top corporate advertisers contacted by The Hollywood Reporter, none revealed plans to pull spots from The Ingraham Angle — and most did not respond.

StarKist, which ran five ads in a recent weeklong period, said in a statement to THR: “We do not endorse individual opinions. Our television ads appear on a number of cable networks as part of our national media buy.”

Mike Lindell, the politically conservative chief executive of top advertiser My Pillow, said, “I have no intention of changing my advertising.”

Between June 4 and 15, Ingraham’s top television advertisers were Sandals resort (21 ads), Home Advisor (13 ads), My Pillow (10 ads) and SiriusXM radio (10 ads), according to Kantar Media data.

Fox News on Tuesday provided a statement to THR supporting Ingraham, as it did during a previous controversy. “Laura Ingraham’s very personal, on-the-ground commitment to the plight of impoverished and abandoned children — specifically in Guatemala — speaks for itself,” the network said. “So, too, does her strong belief in a common-sense, legal immigration system, which will continue to be a focus of her show. Fox News will never tolerate or give in to attempts to silence diverse viewpoints by agenda-driven intimidation efforts.”

David Hogg has not commented on the lack of response from the companies he tried to intimidate.
