The anti-gun students from Parkland, Florida have been on a nonstop media tour.
It all culminated with a march on Washington, D.C. where they demanded Congress ban so-called “assault weapons” and strip Second Amendment rights from large numbers of Americans.
Tucker Carlson addressed one of their leaders on his program and he silenced the anti-gin student with one amazing statement.
David Hogg has been one of the most out-front anti-gun Parkland students.
He has toured left-wing media and pushed his anti-gun agenda while soaking up all the attention.
Carlson addressed Hogg’s increasingly deranged arguments and unhinged behavior on his show Friday night.
He noted that Hogg was just a grieving teenager and that his trauma was being exploited by adults in order to score political points.
Fox News reports:
“During Friday’s “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” host Tucker Carlson discussed the media trotting out activists like Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School student David Hogg, who has been outspoken against gun violence since his school’s February shooting.
Carlson argued that Hogg, who bashed Sen. Rick Scott (R-FL) as a “sick f***” who wants to “sell more guns, murder more children” and “get re-elected,” is acting as an extremist who is “definitely not fit to be making policy for the rest of us.”
“A handful of teens from Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida, they have a right to their views, obviously. This is a given,” said Carlson. “But the rest of us also have rights including the right to assess what they are saying and decide whether it ought to become law to which we are subject. These are not religious figures; we are not the faithful. We’re all citizens here. Let’s take a look at what they are saying and decide if it’s a good idea or not.”
He continued, “Let’s take this seriously. If you honestly don’t care what the people who disagree with you think if you believe they want to ‘murder more children,’ who are you? Well, you’re angry. You’re definitely not fit to be making policy for the rest of us. You are by definition an extremist. You should not have power if you really believe anyone who disagrees with you is evil and wants to kill the innocent.”
Carlson pointed out that the real inhumane people in this debate are the anti-gun adults who jumped at the chance to exploit grieving teenagers to promote a political agenda.
