David Hogg Wants You to Photograph His Dead Body

This sounds like a really weird request, doesn’t it? Why would anyone want to do this? Then again, this is David Hogg, the most self-aggrandizing little douchewagon in America aside from Martin Shkreli. And Shkreli is doing time in prison for securities fraud. Frankly, I think it’d be hard to determine who is more insufferable.

Because, I imagine, no one’s been paying attention to him recently, Hogg tweeted out his last wishes. Now statistically David Hogg has a long life ahead of him, but he made this final request:

For a change, however, Hogg didn’t dream up this silly idea on his own. No, it was a group of students at Columbine High School who inspired the World’s Most Obnoxious Teen.

They called the campaign “My Last Shot,” set up a website for it, and launched a Twitter campaign. Not only that, but they’ll even provide a sticker to put on a drivers license or phone, just in case someone gets shot to death. Then the sticker instructs whomever finds the body to publicize it. I guess if someone dies while texting and driving, the publicity part doesn’t apply.

Denver media was more than happy to do TV feature about it, although they’re in a quandary about how to reconcile the request to show a gory body versus broadcast ethics.

I’ve got a suggestion for the befuddled media types — how about you follow your code of ethics and maintain political neutrality here? And maybe stop listening to children? Oh, wait. . .

So where did this idea come from, considering that the Columbine High School shooting happened nearly 20 years ago? It started with a 17-year-old (because so much profundity comes from the noggins of teenagers) named Kaylee Tyner. Tyner said that the 1955 racist murder of the black teenager Emmett Till inspired her, especially since Till’s mother insisted on an open-casket funeral. The murderers had disfigured him, and his mother wanted the world to see what they did to her son.

Never mind that Emmett Till died as a result of racism, and not a school shooting. And ignore the fact that Kaylee Tyner is a blonde white girl. “Our country has a history of photography effecting real change,” she said. I guess, then, it’s okay to pimp out an unrelated tragedy.

However, not every social media outlet is onboard. For example, YouTube apparently removed the #MyLastShot promotional video:

But, of course, David Hogg thinks this is brilliant, as do his groupies, some of whom responded on Twitter:

“Although morbid, I had a conversation about this with my parents recently. I expressed concerns that my hypothetical death would be overly sanitized, so I asked them to have photos of my publicized a la Emmett Till.”

Yeah, I’m a parent of grown kids. No parents, other than the hyper-political, would want their child’s bloody body displayed all over social media.

And this guy:

“He’s giving the nation an intervention. . . I got to go to school without getting shot at or attending several funerals. We only had tornadoes to fear.”

Guess what? The vast majority of high school kids go to school without “getting shot at.”

Finally, there’s this response:

“Oh, Sweetie. Love and prayers.”

Hold on — haven’t our social betters have been telling us to lay off the “prayers” stuff?

But I have an idea for David Hogg & Company to promote the #MyLastShot campaign. They should travel to Chicago. After all, so far this year the Windy City has seen 74 people shot and killed. That’s a target-rich (pardon the pun) environment for passing out their little stickers to put on cell phones and licenses. I’m sure all the mommas of dead children and gang-bangers would welcome these sanctimonious white kids and their stickers.

Or not. I wonder what their new social media campaign would be after they got run out of Chicago?

    If this generation of twerps was in charge during WWII, half of America would speak German, the other half Japanese and I’d be a cake of soap.

    In the event that I die from gun violence, please publicize the photo of my death
    Must… resist… urge… to volunteer………

    a sticker to put on a drivers license
    That would likely be illegal in just about every state.

    (because so much profundity comes from the noggins of teenagers)
    Yes. “From the mouths of babes” is NOT about wisdom, actually. And the use of it as such is originally intended to be profound because of its unlikelihood.

    I guess, then, it’s okay to make hay out of an unrelated tragedy.
    Meh. The ability to relocate principles from one event to another is a sign of some amount of brain activity. And, it’s not entirely unrelated. So, not gonna bash that.

    No parents, other than the hyper-political
    No. Less prosperous/advanced countries do this sort of thing. But it’s really more a function of our English Protestant roots that we treat death as a private thing, and a Judeo-Christian principle that we don’t literally wave the bloody shirt. (That last bit relies on a society that obeys and reinforces the law, however.)

    I’m sure all the mommas of dead children and gang-bangers would welcome these sanctimonious white kids and their stickers.
    Actually, I’m betting that a lot of people in Chicago would welcome some publicity for their friends and family members that have been shot and killed. Because the anti-gunners LOVE to talk about all the gun crime, but they never seem to actually want to confront the real issues of gangs and criminals ruling the streets in these places. They LOVE to talk about white-on-black (or white-cop-on-black-perp) violence, but never seem to want to confront all the black-on-black crime and violence.
    Of course, those folks who actually live in the bad parts of Chicago (as opposed to 0bama and Emmanuel and the other black grifters) might want to have a talk with them about ideas of how to protect themselves.

      Would the people of Chicago, especially in bad neighborhoods, welcome publicity about crime? Absolutely. Especially after so many police hours went towards Smollett. But kids hawking stickers so that neighborhood children will have their bodies publicized if they got shot? In areas where there’s a real chance of them getting killed in drivebys? Oh hell no.

      There’s necessary publicity and then. . . this idiocy.

  • Suburbanbanshee says:

    I bet these are the same kids who won’t watch concentration camp footage, or who think that cooking meat is too gross. But they want to have the teen drama of imagining their own deaths, and that everyone will finally be sorry for not acknowledging their dominating perfection.

    Also, that they were stolen from their real parents, who are kings and queens.

  • CaptDMO says:

    Aw….c’mon kids, show some commitment
    Instead of stickers on your revocable drivers license, have your message tattooed onto the back of your necks!
    THAT way it can be applied for folks that may slaughter you with edged weapons, as well.
    Does “My last shot” apply to self medication with a disposable plastic syringe as well?
    How about that immunization your parent(s?) neglected for you?

  • zenman says:

    So, if he happens to get beaten to death with a brick or stabbed to death with a knife, we are free to ignore his untimely death?

    • SFC D says:

      I feel quite free to ignore the little phony right now. The clock is ticking on Davey Boi. His usefulness to the lefties is rapidly approaching the Cindy Sheehan expiration date. May they enjoy their time together.

  • His_Highness says:

    I will not photograph his dead body.

    However, there is something about reading his obituary that is strangely appealing. Not that I’d actually read it. Young lad Hogg has not done anything worthy of reading about. But reading that his obituary is out there has an appeal.
