Tuesday's HOT MIC
He's ready for his closeup. Again.
He's going to deny himself a high-school diplomas, apparently, because that'll show us.
At a gun-control rally in New Jersey, Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School student David Hogg said he won’t return to school, which is scheduled to reopen for class Wednesday, the New York Daily News reported.
“I’m not going back to school on Wednesday until one bill is passed,” Mr. Hogg said at the rally.
The 17-year-old also had some choice words for gun-rights advocates at the rally, the Daily News reported, calling them “child murderers” and lamenting the fact that many Florida lawmakers who support gun rights didn’t want to meet with him and other anti-gun students.
“Literally any legislation at this point would be a success considering the fact that so few legislators in Florida met with us,” he said. “The fact that they want people to forget about this and elect them again as the child murderers they are, that’s unacceptable and we’re not going to let that happen.”
Enjoy your vacation, kid -- it's likely to be a long one.
A little something to brighten up your afternoon -- these guys are impressive. Most impressive.
Honestly, this is like choosing me as your AA sponsor.
Social media in practice is anything but social. It's a digitally enabled mob.
Good to know that all kids aren't snowflakes or leftist puppets:
Hundreds of students walked out of class Tuesday morning to support a teacher who was placed an administrative leave for his comments on the high school shooting in Parkland, Florida, CBS Philadelphiareports. Timothy Locke, an AP history teacher, was placed on administrative leave after voicing his concerns over security at Cherry Hill High School East. Locke said a similar shooting could take place at the school and said two police officers are not armed on campus, The Associated Press reports.
After Locke voiced his concerns, a student was so distraught she was escorted by another teacher to the principal's office. The incident led to the school's decision to suspend Locke.
On Tuesday, the students marched along a nearby street and around the school track to support Locke. Some parents attended the march to support the students.
The teacher made a sane, valid point and the school sided with an emotionally weak child. There's the real danger in American public schools in a nutshell.
