  • Parkland shooting survivor David Hogg has some strategies for dealing with smears and conspiracy theories.

    After surviving the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, Hogg and his classmates became vocal activists in the fight for gun control. But that spotlight has made them prime targets for the right-wing smear machine: a collection of Fox News hosts like Laura Ingraham, conservative pundits, conspiracy theorists like Alex Jones, Twitter provocateurs, and YouTube commentators who piled on to the teens in the wake of the shooting.

    Rather than crumbling under the pressure, they're using humor and advertiser pressure to keep their cause in the media spotlight while disarming their critics. In the face of intense media attention, the Parkland students are putting on a masterclass in how to deal with bullies.

    Parkland students want change on guns, but what about other students? We asked and recorded the responses: http://bit.ly/2HboW24

    The alternative right proves that they care about freedom of speech by mass flagging videos that don't confirm their own world view

    Barry Shitpeas lmao I never said anything about background checks. Are you delusional? I can send you links to mental health facilities if you want because from what I’m reading you might be suffering from schizophrenia. To you it makes sense why owning a gun seems so weird because you would probably use it to kill someone or yourself. I never talked about background checks once as they are essential to weed out people who shouldn’t own guns and potential terrorists. since you seem to just paraphrase ...
