Anti-Second Amendment activist David Hogg sure knows how to play the victim… but a wounded soldier just called him out on his perpetual lectures.
From Conservative Tribune:
On Friday, a U.S. Army soldier named Derek Weida posted a scathing response to Hogg, who has proclaimed himself the voice of a generation on gun violence in America.
Whether you want to call Hogg a shooting “survivor” is up for debate. Perhaps “witness” is a better term: He was at the high school at the time of the tragedy, but only heard gunshots in a different part of the school.
In contrast, Derek Weida is a shooting survivor in every sense of the word. He literally took a bullet for his country… and gave up his leg due to injuries from that attack.
“I got shot on a house raid in Iraq,” the former soldier posted on Facebook. “My getting shot didn’t make me a professional on war, international relations, house raids (obviously), or guns,” he explained, seemingly criticizing Hogg for positioning himself as a gun control authority.
Weida explained that he isn’t particularly pro-gun himself, but feels that David Hogg is using the issue for self-aggrandizement and coming across as condescending and smug as a result.
RANT: Accurate portrayal of me listening to David Hogg speak. Look, I’m sorry dude, sincerely. It is horrible… School…
“Here’s my two cents: It’s not a gun problem, not a people problem, it’s a culture thing,” the one-legged soldier wrote.
“Don’t ever be so quick to tell a whoooole lot of people how to live,” he warned Hogg. “F***ing NOBODY wants school shootings, mass shootings, shootings of any kind where somebody ends up injured or dead. Nobody.”
Do you agree with Derek Weida? Is David Hogg being too smug in his presence?
