You Say You Want a Revolution [VIDEO]

The runaway ego of the most punchable face gracing every mainstream media broadcast right now is claiming he and his ilk are starting a “revolution.” In a very scripted appearance on ABC’s Good Morning America broadcast this morning, David Hogg (thankfully leaving the obscenity-laced rants at home this time) metaphorically pounded his puny chest in a bout of self-aggrandizement, claiming he and his Parkland pals are all heroic and such.

Uh. OK.

Now, not all revolutions are violent, shedding the blood of participants all over the battlefield, and the definitions of what, exactly, a “revolution” is will differ.

A revolution is a change in social or political systems – an overthrow of a political regime “by a popular movement in an irregular, extraconstitutional and/or violent fashion,” according to sociology professor Jeff Goodwin.

Sociologist Jack Goldstone defines a “revolution”  as “an effort to transform the political institutions and the justifications for political authority in society, accompanied by formal or informal mass mobilization and noninstitutionalized actions that undermine authorities.”

Every definition and example of a political and social revolution I have seen involves radical change, especially the overthrow or renunciation of one government or ruler by the governed. But what I haven’t seen in readings about revolutions and revolutionary movements is government-funded, organized, high-end, media promoted events steeped in ignorance of the law, natural rights, and political philosophy.

Does this look like a revolution? Or does this look like a rock concert?

Does this look like the overthrow of a political system, or does it look like a bunch of ignorant kids, funded and encouraged by extremist billionaires, government institutions, and teachers unions?

These kids’ egos have written checks that the rest of us can see are counterfeit from miles away, and no adult in their life has had the common sense to pull them back and advise them to stop and think.

In their zeal to paint themselves as a revolutionary movement, Hogg and his buddies have forgotten a few things.

A revolution requires principles – the will and courage to make a change, no matter what the cost. It certainly doesn’t require funding and organization by statist liars and politicians (but I repeat myself).

Revolutions require strategy, intelligence, and commitment. Not parroting talking points from would-be petty tyrants intent on relieving us of our rights without actual knowledge of our political system, the law, and what authorities politicians have to change them.

“Politicians who accept money from the National Rifle Association in the next election have a “badge of shame” on them,” derped Cameron Kasky recently.

“The NRA are pathetic fuckers,” claimed Hogg, denigrating millions of law-abiding citizens who choose to associate with one another, exercising their First Amendment rights.

Do these sound like revolutionaries, or bratty kids?

Revolutions are not started by whining punks, who want the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding citizens curtailed, while idiotically whining that the requirement for clear backpacks violates students‘ First Amendment rights, because it makes girls feel all embarrassed because they might have tampons and stuff.

Revolutions are not initiated by willing puppets, goaded into ignorant action by teachers’ unions consisting of individuals employed by government schools. GOVERNMENT SCHOOLS! Revolutions aren’t started and supported by governments. They’re started by rebels, by independent thinkers, by warriors who are willing to shed their blood to initiate change.

They aren’t started by egotistical punks who spent time locked in a closet, while their peers and teachers sacrificed themselves to protect them. And they certainly aren’t pathetic little twats who congregate and promote a statist agenda, surrounded and protected by armed police!

They aren’t started by ignorant little thuglets, wearing armbands, giving Hitleresque salutes, threatening elected officials, backed by authority-loving, dictator-fellating scum, given free rides by Lyft, and supported by self-righteous airline employees, who see it fit to lecture passengers on the virtues of staged demonstrations, demanding statist policies.

Hamilton wrote in “The Farmer Refuted.”

Hence, also, the origin of all civil government, justly established, must be a voluntary compact between the rulers and the ruled, and must be liable to such limitations as are necessary for the security of the absolute rights of the latter; for what original title can any man, or set of men, have to govern others, except their own consent? To usurp dominion over a people in their own despite, or to grasp at a more extensive power than they are willing to intrust, is to violate that law of nature which gives every man a right to his personal liberty, and can therefore confer no obligation to obedience.

David Hogg recently stated:

When your old-ass parent is like, “I don’t know how to send an iMessage,” and you’re just like, “Give me the fucking phone and let me handle it.” Sadly, that’s what we have to do with our government; our parents don’t know how to use a fucking democracy, so we have to.

You say you want a revolution?

Grow up first.

    So what changed after the Women’s march? Nothing? Oh right. Same thing will happen after this one.

    • Micha Elyi says:

      “So what changed after the Women’s march?”–Robin H

      A guy named Trump instead of Obama has signed federal spending bill after spending bill that keeps Planned Parenthood on the federal teat, to name one thing that has changed. How can you call that “Nothing”?

      Sigh.

  • Wfjag says:

    He won’t like the revolution when it comes. Hint, twerp: The guys with the guns, win.

  • Skillyboo says:

    You mean the young Glenn Quagmire?

  • Wang Wei Lin says:

    An egostistical ignoramous wants to ban guns and start a revolution. He should read history to see how revolutions are conducted. Start a revolution Mr. Hogg–I dare you.

  • harleycowboy says:

    I just want to puke every time I see his face. The willing tool doesn’t have a clue. He’ll be dressed up, polished up, photoed up and when his usefulness is over the door will be closed up. Tell Cindy Shehan to move over and make some room.

    • Rick Caird says:

      Cindy Sheehan was heroic compared to this little darling. Gee, where is Cindy now. Oh right, she was used and then discarded. See your fate, David Hogg.

  • parker says:

    Personally I don’t and to punch his smug face, I want to stuff it up his back side where the sun don’t shine. A smug twerp deserves to less. Life lesson, yes, you caca smells too.

  • Raphael says:

    He might just end up like Che………!

  • Nan says:

    Remind me, in which amendment will 8 find the right not to be embarrassed?

  • Thomass says:

    More a coup. The government and elite is overthrowing the republic and the people because it found them too limiting to their power. Act accordingly.

  • Flying Dutchman says:

    The generation that would change the world are still trying to find their cell phones.

    They’re so adorable when they get their skivvies in a knot like this.

  • jorge says:

    Revolutions also require useful idiots, and cannon fodder, so at least they have that already…

  • MarkJ says:

    I saw a tweet by one of these smug female twerps confidently claiming that an “FBI assault gun task force” would be able to confiscate all AR-15’s not otherwise voluntarily turned in during a confiscation drive. My semi-cordial reply was that, for starters, our troops in Afghanistan haven’t yet been able to defeat a bunch of semi-literate, Islamist peasants in 17 years of fighting; so what in the wide world of sports would make her think the FBI could handle literally millions of pi**ed off, heavily armed Americans? Especially so once they got organized and started going after their perceived opponents?

    Our pimple-faced “revolutionaries” don’t have a friggin’ clue as to what they could be unleashing. The real shame is that they’re too stupid to care in any event.

      “I saw a tweet by one of these smug female twerps confidently claiming that an “FBI assault gun task force” would be able to confiscate all AR-15’s…”–MarkJ

      I guess “these smug female twerps” haven’t figured out that if the same federal government that operates the FBI can’t catch and deport any but a few of the tens of millions of illegal aliens (who are much bigger, harder to hide than AR-15s, and eat more besides) will also fail to confiscate all but an insignificant number of AR-15s. Plus, any such confiscation risks sparking an armed popular resistance to any such tyranny. Only kids suffering a so-called public school educations could be so ignorant.

      P.S. Here’s a riddle: what did old Mrs. Clinton’s activist supporters do after she lost the election on Tuesday, November 8, 2016? Answer: Wednesday they were back in school teaching your kids.

  • Buck Wheaton says:

    Leftists always seek a revolution. The fist step is the complete destruction of a functioning society and economy. The next step is that the revolutionary somehow is in charge of creating a new and far better society from the ashes and rubble, rebuilt by the pliant and newly indoctrinated survivors. In their dreams, the new society is equitable because everyone lives at the expense of everyone else.

    Jordan Peterson is right. People who cannot yet keep their own rooms clean should not think they are qualified to run a society.

  • Skillyboo says:

    The Left is real good at organizing but not good at all at finding solutions or employment.

  • Scottie says:

    Gonna be kind of hard to have a revolution without any guns. If you do, it’ll be the last revolution because the government will have all of them and you will be defenseless. Do you really think that giving all of the guns to Donald Trump is a great idea? You really need to think this through a bit better little boy.

  • Harvardr says:

    The good news? Hogg is most definitely one of the first MFers up against the wall come the “revolution”.

    • nuthinmuffin says:

      no one will remember his name in a year or so..remember sandra fluke? only because i mentioned her…do you think this dweeb knows who she is? he was twelve when she was pushing her contraception fraud…

  • FiftycalTX says:

    Shame he gave up on the idea of “armbands”. That pose would have been perfect if he had had a brown shirt and swastika armband on.

  • nuthinmuffin says:

    never mentioned, parkland wealthy and mostly white, yet no mention of their elitist status. why is it that when rich white kids get bloodied, it’s national emergency, black kids in chicago, never mind?

    Parkland, FL’s median home price stands at $473,000 while $126,905 is the value of the average household income

  • ZZMike says:

    Why does the media tell us that the kids organized the march? That sort of turnout and media coverage doesn’t start itself, and while some of them could very well organize a prom or graduation party, most of them could not organize a shopping trip. Let’s publicize the real organizers – moveon . org &c.

  • Cynthia Willis says:

    Obviously, he is not as good a student as he purports! The United States is not a democracy, it is a republic form of government, whose leaders are elected representatives of the people who send them to congress. Stay in class, young man, you have a lot to learn.

  • Buford Freeman says:

    Another kid with just enough smarts to text, drive and kill someone. He couldn’t fight his way out of a paper bag and obviously has no clue. He might want to remember why we carry guns, to keep idiots like him from gaining control and erasing the constitution. He should remember that real Americans fought, died and bled for his freedom – a debt he can’t repay. Ever. For that debt a little respect is due.

  • Subotai Bahadur says:

    Revolutions require casualties. It is the way that they are. Let us say that the FBI, who already has most patriotic Americans p*ssed at them, tries to confiscate all weapons. That is not an 8 hour a day, 40 hour work week job. Those agents will be hunted 24/7/365. And unlike our soldiers in Afghanistan, there are no rules of engagement. The government has already proved over the last couple of decades that they rather enjoy killing innocent women and children. I don’t think that if it comes to a real revolution that the agents, their families, their non-agent co-workers and their families, or anyone considered to be a collaborator with the government [and their families] will be considered non-combatants.

    I think that they could fall under the heading of collaborators. If they think that they are at a high statistical risk of harm from a random school shooting, they have not pondered what their risk will be if they are deliberately targeted. And “law enforcement” are going to be too busy to care about protecting them.

    Revolutions and civil wars are not like rallies in the school quad. Look at Spain, Russia, China, Cambodia, etc.

    They have freedom of choice in what they do or not do. Nobody has any freedom from consequences for those choices.

  • Joe Mack says:

    I expect the same coverage for the right to life march,, NOT.

    get armed, the civil war is coming.

  • sound awake says:

    total armed forces and sworn law enforcement officers in america: about 3,000,000

    half of that is navy air force coast guard ie wont be seeing them on the streets with m-4s

    as many as 100,000,000 gun owners in possession of upwards of 300,000,000 firearms

    and everybody i know has at least 100 rounds on hand PER GUN if not way way more

    so thats billions of rounds of ammo

    maybe as much as the government

    maybe even more

    sure at least half of either side will sit this one out

    and some gunowners voted for hillary

    i work with some of them

    but still its like 20 or 30 to 1

    and they will be on defense

    advantage: us

    an exercise:

    i live in a city of 30,000

    so roughly 10,000 gun owners

    only like 50 cops total

    word of the day: insurmountable
