School Shooting in Chicago, Where’s David Hogg? [VIDEO]

There was another school shooting this past week, but I bet you never heard about it. It happened in Chicago, when gunmen pulled up in a car, with T-shirts over their faces, and began shooting into a group of students leaving school. Fortunately, no one was killed, but three were wounded.

This was after Chatham High School had held an active shooter drill earlier in the day. It was also after the principal urged students over the intercom to go home immediately. There was a man shot a few blocks away earlier in the day, so the warnings were warranted.

A security guard had the same message for departing students:

“There’s a lot of shootings going on, we want y’all to be safe. We want y’all to go straight home. Make it back tomorrow safe and sound.”

But then all hell broke loose.

The mother of one of the victims, visiting her son in the hospital, told the Chicago Tribune:

“No parent should ever have to go through this, and I’ve never been through this before. It really tore me apart, but again, thank God that my son is alive, and that’s the most important thing right now.”

Needless to say, the students at the school were shocked, and they decided to take it to the streets — not with guns, however, but with protest.

So on Friday, accompanied by their principal, about 100 Chatham High students marched through the neighborhood with signs demanding peace. As principal Tony Lyons said:

“We need the community to come out of their houses. It’s not the police responsibility, it’s our responsibility.”

A high school senior added:

“I do believe we need to take matters into our own hands to make this community better.”

While a Chatham resident echoed her words:

 “We’ve been in the community 40 plus years. The government can’t do everything, it has to be the community.”

Yes, indeed.

But guess who was missing from the brave march through a violence-ridden neighborhood?

Yep, the School Shooting Guy. The guy who earned his anti-gun cred by hiding out during the Margery Stoneman Douglas school shooting in Florida.

Yes, where indeed was David Hogg?

Let’s see, shall we?

Well, on Friday he was on social media, encouraging young people to run for office:

And, of course, getting out the vote. Against the NRA and 2A supporters, naturally:

And he also retweeted one of his little Margery Stoneman High School buds. Because, after all, it’s all about their school. Chicago schools? Meh.

So why doesn’t David Hogg stand up for his brothers and sisters in Chicago? It’s quite simple, really. First of all, Chicago is a Democrat town — the home of Barack Obama, after all — and that’s something that Hogg and Co. would just as soon you’d ignore. Plus, could you see his skinny white ass walking through the mean streets of Chicago?

Yeah, I didn’t think so either.
