UPDATE: The Author of this post, as well as numerous other Conservatives, are being banned from Facebook and Twitter for posting about David Hogg and inquiring about his affiliation with CNN.
As objective journalists, our ethical obligation is to avoid sensationalism, dishonesty, and deception. According to this moral compass, it is absolutely necessary to observe all facts in objectivity, and in honest inquiry, avoiding perceptual biases and filters. To this end, any objective observation of the recent shooting in Parkland is quite an unprecedented, and altogether shocking, occurrence.
What We Know
Noted “witness” David Hogg, who is also, coincidentally, a liberal, anti-Trump political activist, has been consistently at the forefront of the incident. But immediate suspicions were gathered, due to the nature of Hogg’s incoherent interview with a news anchor, in which he repeatedly attempted to revise entire phrases and repeat himself. The emotional connotation appears to convey not distress and pain, but anxiety at incorrectly phrasing certain statements in his explanation of what he claims happened. The video has since been removed from YouTube for “bullying and harassment.”
Additional research on Hogg reveals that his father, Kevin Hogg, is a retired FBI agent, which is confirmed in Hogg’s interview (you can watch it on our Gab profile, as YouTube has removed the video) as well. In addition to this, Hogg was coincidentally interviewed at the end of last year in California, pertaining to a conflict that he was involved in there.
The demeanor of the victims of the shooting is inconsistent with the alleged incident, in their evidently cheerful attitudes while being interviewed on CBS. Many alleged sources have been leaked, including these images of Parkland survivors appearing on CBS’ This Morning and Hogg wearing a CNN propaganda shirt.
Setting sensationalized assumptions and conjectures aside, what may be guaranteed is that this event has provided an unprecedented political pressure for the enforcement of totalitarian policies, including gun control. Irrespective of whether this is deemed an orchestrated event or not, the evidence presented is undeniably suspicious, and a reasonable cause for concern.
The repeal of the Smith-Mundt Act, a legislative measure to prevent the U.S. government from producing propaganda to influence the American citizenry, is also a major variable that raises suspicion. Only a circumspect American can properly address the preservation of their Constitutional rights and liberties, and that is precisely what is required, in further investigation into this case.
