David Hogg Scores Book Deal

Publication will “Help Heal the Community”

Two of the young gun-grab heartthrobs from Parkland Florida are being rewarded handsomely for his “reporting” on the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas School. They’ve landed a book deal–or perhaps the book deal landed them?

Entertainment Weekly reports:

David Hogg and Lauren Hogg, students at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School and survivors of February’s deadly mass shooting in Parkland, Florida have signed a deal with Random House for a book to be published in June, EW has confirmed.

The siblings have been leaders in the gun control movement that took shape among students, in the aftermath of the Parkland shooting. Their book, #NeverAgain, is described as “a statement of generational purpose, and a moving portrait of the birth of a new movement.” The book will explore their efforts taking on some of the most powerful forces in Washington and beyond, and will detail their commitment to new legislation aiming to prevent future tragedies.

“In times of struggle and tragedy, we can come together in love and compassion for each other,” David Hogg said in a statement. “We can see each other not as political symbols, but as human beings. And then, of course, there will be times when we simply must fight for what is right.”

Hogg’s most recent escapade involved leading an advertiser boycott of Laura Ingraham’s cable news program because the broadcaster poked fun at the fact that Hogg was only admitted to fourth-tier universities.

NeverAgain is scheduled to be published on June 5. That’s not much time to put a book together, so their ghost writers had better get started!

  1. I predict that this book’s actual sales will be small yet somehow it becomes a best seller. Here’s a Wall Street Journal article about how it’s done. There’s a company you can hire to spike your sales enough to make it jump onto best seller lists. If the powers that be want this book to jump, it’s as simple as picking up the phone and writing a huge check. Ever read Trump’s book ‘art of the deal’? It’s 372 pages of hot air trapped inside the cover. Were the sales legit or did it have help? A million suckers bought this book? Probably after the first 100,000 “flew off the shelf”. It’s a vanity publication from someone than can afford to pay outfits like ResultSource to make it hit the afterburners to the stratosphere. I kept reading it thinking I would be blown away by his insights. After I turned the last page I wondered what the hell was going on, how such a bland uninteresting book did what it did. That’s when I realized what Trump was all about. He’s the Hype-Master. Watch him closely when he makes a speech. The truth of what he says is of little concern. I was just watching him say he was the toughest President ever on Russia. Everything he says is designed to gaslight the left into a rage while playing a symphony to his base. I have no doubt Trump knows Assad is not behind either of the gas attacks. He pushed the button on the Tomahawks because it kept Israel and M.I.C. happy and off his back, not because it’s the right thing to do. Here’s my links to a story of Trump’s book sales and the outfit you can hire to salt your book sales

  2. A Puppet’s Open Letter to Parkland’s Crisis Actors:

    “America’s response to mass shootings has long followed a predictable pattern. We mourn. Offer thoughts and prayers. Speculate about the motives. And then—even as no developed country endures a homicide rate like ours, a difference explained largely by pervasive accessibility to guns…”

    So the first black President of the Harvard Law Review concludes that our mass shooting problem is “largely explained by pervasive accessibility to guns.” Based on what evidence? Surely, Harvard’s Northeast, liberal establishment professors taught him to back up his arguments with evidence and not to make spurious claims without hard facts. He must have been instructed in the Socratic method, etc. However, here we have an emotional appeal and not a logical argument. There is an overt contempt for those who “speculate” about motive. Yet, motive is usually at the forefront of any serious criminal investigation. Surely, any competent investigation of mass homicide would have to address motive. Except , as here, when political agendas are at play.

    “They see the NRA and its allies—whether mealymouthed politicians or mendacious commentators peddling conspiracy theories—as mere shills for those who make money selling weapons of war to whoever can pay. ”

    This is particularly rich satire considering the Obama Administration sold more military weapons than any previous Administration since WW2:
