Hey, David Hogg, the 60’s Called. They Want Their Die-In Protests Back. [VIDEO]

Are David Hogg’s fifteen minutes finally running out? Or is Texas sucking all the air out of his attention chamber?

Hogg must be frustrated. No one is paying attention to him anymore, and he just has to find another business to protest. So he found one in Florida’s Publix grocery store chain.

Why the anger at Publix? Are they selling weapons or something? Maybe ammo?

No, Hogg’s snit with Publix is because the chain donated money to Republican David Putnam, a gubernatorial candidate. And do you know what that dastardly Putnam did? Why, he supported the NRA, the blackguard!

And what does Hogg think will be an effective protest against Publix? A good old-fashioned “die-in,” that’s what. So he’s invited his flock of sheep followers to go to Publix stores on Friday and lie down on the floors. It’ll be like they’re dead or something.

Shades of the 1960’s! He wins no points for originality — lots of other groups do it, too. Plus, it just looks stupid and juvenile. Toddlers throw themselves on the floor when they don’t get their way, right?

So what does Hogg think he’ll accomplish? After all, not only will he and his speed bump wannabes annoy the crap out of people just trying to shop, he’s also protesting a store that is employee owned. Way to do your research, doofus!

Hogg’s nemesis Kyle Kashuv noticed that, too.

Not only that, but Publix also offers some medications free of charge. And it recently donated $5 million to Habitat for Humanity, along with other charities that provide housing for the homeless.

Yeah, Publix sounds like a really eeeviill corporation, doesn’t it?

If David Hogg did his research, he’d also find that these kinds of shenanigans actually tend to backfire. Just ask anyone who boycotted Chick-fil-A back in 2012. Despite the Ooh-Evil-Bigoted-Christian-Chick-fil-A boycotts, their sales took off that year. And in 2017, the chain pummeled McDonald’s and KFC in average sales per restaurant — even though the chain closes all their stores on Sunday.

Yeah, that boycott of Chick-fil-A worked out really well for the protesters, didn’t it?

Come to think it, maybe it would be a good thing for David Hogg and his band of obnoxious children to hold temper tantrums on the floors of Publix grocery stores. The backlash could be very good for business, don’t you think?

    All of those stores should start saving, and “aging ” their mop water, and when this shit show starts, use it to mop the isles where these fools choose to lay down… that could make for an exciting 12 min.. or is that just my mean streak showing???

  • Tom G says:

    Makes me think of getting down on the ground during a dance, when the song is B-52s Rock Lobster, and they sing down …. down …. down…
    But this cool fund video doesn’t quite show it like I remember dancing it (in the 80s & just before).

    Also the Smith’s Girlfriend in a Coma. (I know, I know, it’s serious).

  • Rick Caird says:

    I have been saying that David Hogg is destroying himself. Most schools have a plethora of activists causing problems for other students. They are unlikely to go searching for more. And, when poor little David goes looking for a job, there will be Internet searches and all his nonsense will show up. How many employers will be looking for someone just like little Davey? I submit, not many. David Hogg should be looking for advice from adults, not feeding his childish frenzies.

  • GWB says:

    If I were a customer, I would simply drag each of them out of the store into the parking lot. By their feet. And deposit them (though I doubt any would last that long) right in front of the built-in speed bumps.

    Publix would be well within their rights to have these folks arrested when they show up, before they so much as hit a knee, since they’ve already advertised that they will be trespassing.

    Yet more mob bullying against people simply exercising their right to participate in the public square.
    These folks need to be shoved right out of our society. And I’m willing for that to be literal.

  • David Justus says:

    I think you have to view ‘worked out well for the protesters’ through what is important to the protesters (and their leaders). This sort of stunt doesn’t help change public policy but it is excellent at virtue signaling and establishing oneself as a leader and garnering the attention and other rewards that goes with it.

    It is also quite effective at increasing polarization, and the more polarized our society is, the better this sort of parasite will do.

    So I do think they aren’t dumb when they organize this sort of thing.

  • James Armstrong says:

    One thing I think these “protesters” seem to forget is that when you piss people off by doing stuff like this, you are actively hurting your cause, no matter how “just” it is. Block the road, lay down in the aisles, inconvenience people, and if they had been somewhat inclined to back you, they sure as hell won’t be afterwards! God, I love stupid people, they’re so much fun to watch!

  • Kevin says:

    I hope these draft-dodging, baby-raping anti-NRA devils try this at a store I visit. I intend to use violence against these infinitely evil cackling Satans.

  • TN VOLUNTEER says:

    …..pajama boys looking to get laid!

  • JibberJabber says:

    If they’re “dead” for 12 minutes, they shouldn’t be talking during that time. What’s the point of a die-in protest if you’re just going to break your own rules? Then it just looks like toddlers throwing a mini temper tantrum during nap time.
