What happens when your 15 minutes months of fame finally fade and you’re no longer the subject of fawning profiles and softball interviews by media outlets that want nothing more than to help you spread your anti-gun message?

Easy! Make up a story about how your opponents in the debate want you dead and portray yourself as a martyr to the “gun safety” cause.

It obviously wasn’t enough that David Hogg was gifted a spot at Harvard despite grades and test scores that excluded him from allegedly far less prestigious or selective schools. No, it seems Mr. Hogg needs to continually see his name in the media to fluff up a sagging self-image.

Hence, in a recent interview he claimed seven — count ’em, SEVEN — “assassination attempts” have been perpetrated against him since he became a gun control advocate.

Parkland shooting survivor David Hogg said he has been the target of seven “assassination attempts” in the last year.

The vocal supporter of gun-control legislation detailed his experiences throughout the last 18 months as he went from regular high school student to one of the faces of the school safety movement in an interview with the Washington Post published Tuesday. He was not asked for further details about the threats.

Actually, he really didn’t “detail” them at all.

The Amazon Times‘ KK Ottesen was apparently insufficiently curious about Hogg’s sensational claim to follow up in any meaningful way. No questions about when these alleged attempts occurred. She didn’t ask if there had been arrests of those involved or how close any of the attempts came to succeeding. You know, questions an actual reporter might ask.

Maybe the Posts slogan should be Democracy Dies in Disinterest (Especially When Digging Might Disrupt the Narrative). Or maybe that wouldn’t fit on a t-shirt.

All Ottesen could manage to babble was:

Oh, God. So how do you process something like that? And how do you see other people as a result?

Well, I see people as misguided and misinformed of what we’re actually here to talk about. But I also realize, if they kill me that’s probably the sutpidest thing they could do to try to end the movement. Because that would make it even more successful in the end. Because it wold invigorate us and create f—ing change.

He went on . . .

Honestly, I realize that it’s horrible that I have to live through this, and it’s traumatizing. But you eventually become desensitized to it. Like, oh, your house gets SWAT-ted. You got a call from the police saying someone said that everyone in your family had been killed and that you are being held hostage for $100,000. Right? That becomes part of daily life. It’s just something that you have to get through. But I mean, what am I going to do? Stop?

Some people do. 

Well, I’m not going to stop. I want to go to school and, for lack of a better word, weaponize my knowledge and learn as much as possible to end violence.

David Hogg will be old enough to run for Congress in 2025.

    • Isn’t his daddy (not much of a father) in the FBI? Who is going to attempt an assassination on an FBI agents kid? Hoggbreath isn’t even credible.

    • It looks like he is trying to get more Bloomberg cash by getting himself in the news again.

      Hey Hogge-boy, if someone really wanted you dead you would be found in a cheap motel with a needle in your arm.

  1. Obvious lie is obvious. Even if it were true, odds are one of the seven attempts would have been successful.

    • Nah, what really happen was he saw a Hero in Jessie Smollet.

      He saw in Smollet a smugness and arrogance that exceeded even his own. He marveled when he saw Smollet proudly modeling the noose around his neck in the police body cams. There is how a real victim shows his victim “status” he thought. With awe and amazement he watched Smollet prance from the court room free from any charges because of the corrupt and acidic Michelle Obama and Kim Fox, and thought “That is what I want to be when I grow up and become a real boy”.

      Then he realized Smollet’s mistake, the lie wasn’t big enough! Smollet only had ONE attempt, Hogg will say he had SEVEN attempts to fry his bacon. And of course he knew, like Smollet, the tainted, debased, and corrupt leftist media will cover for him.

      Victim status…progressive’s golden currency.

    • @bryan,

      Doubt it’s a lie in his own head. Since he’s already skeered of the sight of a gun, he may be interpreting negative comments on his Twittie or Instacrap feeds as ‘assassination attempts’.

      Then there was that time several years back when Hillary stepped off the chopper and “narrowly missed” being cut down by sniper fire from a firefight a hundred miles away from the base.

  2. You think the twit is a waste of oxygen now? Wait until Harvard gets done with the little SOB.

    • He will have to read books (instead of burning them), do assignments, and even pass tests!

      Unless Bloomberg protects his investment by having all that boring drudge stuff done by assistants, and has a word to the dean about Hogge-boy’s grades.

      • I’m pretty sure these days all you have to do to get a degree is successfully regurgitate the progressive memes. Class attendance and actual intelligence are not required.

  3. Do these ‘attempts’ include the lid on the grill he’s using at McDonald’s falling when he wasn’t expecting it?

  4. Today’s snowflakes are so fragile that even a mean look towards them is considered a deadly assault…

    But David Hogg is still just a pathetic liar.

  5. I would imagine this is all in his head.
    1. law abiding guns owners don’t make threats or attempt assassinations.
    2. law abiding gun owners have pretty decent marksmanship and bryan1980 nailed it.
    3. he’s not much of a threat to worry about.

    • It’s probably not in his head. Well except for the lying part. I suspect what is really going on is that once you peel back the lie, is that he got a bunch of death threats ( which since he’s a public figure and there’s the internet, he’s probably gotten a ton of) and law enforcement found 7 of them to be worthy of something other than hitting the delete button on them immediately.

      • And all 7 came from users of 4chan, 8chan or voat.
        Who mostly are basement dwelling versions of hog.
        They see or think he is becoming successful and maybe is no longer an incel .

        • Or he set up some disposable accounts and sent such threats to himself to provide “proof” for the MSM.

  6. Maj Toure of Black Guns Matter and Dana Loesch have also been targeted for assassination. In fact Loesch had to move her family out of their home because of the real threats.
    But when you are the son of an FBI agent, you get special protection, that no other citizens gets. The pig Hogg will be just fine.

  7. People keep trying to “assassinate” him with a Truth Bomb…. ….but somehow
    somehow mr. Hogg always seems to evade it’s payload.

  8. And none of them succeeded?

    Then either a) these ‘attempts’ never existed, or b) you’ve acquired the most inept bunch of enemies in the history of mankind.

    My money is on choice ‘a’.

    • Probably threats made from neckbearded basement dwellers on events he was scheduled to appear, and nothing happened, so he considers it surviving another attack.

    • That is the crux of the entire deal. If you didn’t call the police and make a report. I don’t think you took it seriously and I can’t.

  9. Hes’s an a$$hole who is also an attention whore. Unlikely he even cares much about gun control, it’s just a vehicle to get attention. He has stepped over the dead bodies of his classmates to stand in front of a camera.

    • He’d have to have been in the building in order to do that. He chased the ambulances over to the school on his day off, and took control of the event to bolster his career as a professional shit-head. Guy’s phonier than Brian Williams’ story about destroying the One Ring.

      • @barnbwt. I didn’t mean in the literally sense that he physically stepped over the bodies.

    • No we wouldn’t want that, as it really would strengthen his movement. It’s far better that a sophomoric twit, who is an obvious liar and laces his mainstream media interviews with profanities, continue as the face of gun control!

  10. He puts the “ass” in assassination. Twice. That’s how much of an ass he is.

    Mr. Dumbass is rather clearly priming the waters for his inevitable Jussie Smollet false-flag. That, or he’s suicidal and thinks this can make his sleazy, grasping life mean something, after he finally ends it. Somehow, I don’t think a poseur who still lies about being a ‘survivor’ of the shooting in order to land a career as a political operative could ever be earnest enough to die for his cause, so my money’s on the false-flag. Especially since we all know he’d be screaming to the heavens for press coverage if anyone did something more significant than call him a fuck-nut on Twitter.

    • I disagree. Take him to the range, let him try all the guns he wants, and when he realizes how fun it is to plink targets with a .22LR all day, and the sense of self-protection a solid 9mm, shottie, or even an AR provides, give him one for free and welcome him as a new “woke” member of the 2A movement. Then we take selfies with him and post them all over the Internetz to make the other Lefty nutcases furious that they lost one of their own to the Light Side (opposite of Dark Side, see what I did there?).

      I’ve done it three times this year already with newbies who were nervous about guns but ended up asking me to please take them to the range again because it was much better than they had expected.

      Heck, I’ll throw in $20 to buy the Hoggster his own 10/22.

  11. Golly Hoggboy you’d think just a minor cut would kill your girly body. Or your boyfriend’s caress😄😊😏

    • More likely to be buzzcut girl with a strap-on. And they have gender-fluid moments.

  12. This young man is a bold-faced liar and needs professional help. He can’t seem to stop lying about things.

  13. Yeah I call bullshit on that claim. Given that he has about the same level of credibility as any SJW that says that they get harassment for spewing patently false claims. Probably someone said something spicy about him on 4Chan and it gets back to him.

    Regardless if he can’t take flak for spewing his anti-civil rights BS then maybe he should just go back to surfing on Redondo Beach in California. Which is where he actually was when Parkland went down. He actually graduated back the year before the shooting.

  14. Wouldn’t surprise me with as much of a demagogue he happens to be. That said if it was true I would have also thought it certain to make the news as a way to disparage his opponents and hit the snooze button on his 15 minutes of fame. I mean there would be police reports too, wouldn’t there? If someone tried to kill me I’m pressing charges.

  15. Well, when you’re not famous they call it “murder” vs. “assassination.”

    And murder attempts are why targeted people get security details (with guns). And why people not rich enough to hire security want the option to carry guns. And why smaller, slower people stand a chance with a gun, when they wouldn’t without.

  16. Why are we not seeing reports of these attempts in the MSM? Why do we not have parents on TV demanding some sort of government action?

  17. Prediction One: Hogg will attend Harvard for two or three semesters where he will dazzle his professors with ignoring basic facts and logic and will finally be informed by Harvard that he doesn’t meet their minimum requirements and that he should try another college. Preferably one that has “clown” or “barber” in it’s name.
    Prediction Two: Hogg will run for congress in 2026 as a “progressive” democrat in the heavily anti-gun Northeast where he will win the election.
    And some people wonder why I think America is doomed.

    • F off we’re full. On the serious side yeah the punk probably could pull an election out of somebody’s ass downstate or in Albany. It’s would be like another Hillary but less ambitious in corruption and less manly.

    • Bloomberg will protect his investment by having assistants do the actual coursework and quiet word to the dean will ensure adequate academic standards are met.

  18. Hogg survived I speculate, because of exactly the protections he would deny the rest of us; exactly what his classmates did not have.

    His (presumably armed) security. Tip-offs and monitoring kniwn tbreats. Premptive responses.

    • He survived because he wasn’t there. He got to the school after the shooting was done, but claims to be a survivor. He’s as phony as a $3 bill yet the left accepts him as a survivor. Supporting him is the perfect IQ test!

      • When do you out house people ever check facts instead of believing every far out Right Wing Nut Case theory you hear from idiots like Rush Limbhead.
        David Hogg at School During Parkland Shooting
        By Angelo Fichera

        Posted on April 3, 2018

        Q: Was David Hogg at home during the February school shooting in Florida?

        A: No. Hogg recorded videos from inside the school during the shooting and a teacher confirmed that he was there at the time.

        Is this real???

        David Hogg Changes Story, Wasn’t At School When Cruz Opened Fire

        Several weeks after 17 people were killed in a Feb. 14 school shooting in Parkland, Florida, a number of student-survivors have continued to draw national attention as they advocate for gun control laws.

        What’s also persisted: the flow of fabricated claims about those students from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.

        One of the latest rumors — circulated in at least a dozen stories flagged as potentially false by Facebook users — claims that David Hogg, a senior named in previous false stories, was not actually at the high school during the shooting.

        Those stories are indeed false.

        The allegations are based on an out-of-context quote from Hogg. In a CBS News documentary, the 17-year-old said: “On the day of the shooting, I got my camera and got on my bike and rode as fast as I could three miles from my house to the school to get as much video and to get as many interviews as I could because I knew that this could not be another mass shooting.”

        With a glaring spelling error in its headline, the website declared on March 28: “David Hogg Unintentially Reveals He Was Not At School When Parkland Shooting Happened.”

        “SHOCK: David Hogg Changes Story, Wasn’t At School When Cruz Opened Fire,” reads’s March 26 headline.

        But at no point did Hogg ever say that in the CBS News documentary, “39 Days,” or elsewhere.

        Interviews and videos published in the days after the shooting support Hogg’s narrative that he was at the school when the shooter opened fire and that Hogg went home at some point and returned to the scene later that night.

        In fact, Hogg, a student journalist and member of the school’s news show, recorded interviews with his peers inside the school as it remained locked down. The Miami Herald published that footage Feb. 15, which shows Hogg asking his fellow students about their views on gun control.

        Time also published a video on Feb. 15 that was recorded by Hogg during the lockdown. In it, Hogg says “it’s 2:52” and that he “heard one gunshot.” (The shooting reportedly occurred from 2:21 p.m. to 2:28 p.m., and the lockdown was lifted at 3:36 p.m.)

        “Once we were all in the room and we started seeing the headlines, we realized this was anything but a drill — this was life or death,” Hogg said in a MSNBC interview the day after the shooting. “And that actually was when I started recording. Because I realized that if I died, and if everyone else around me died, I wanted to have our voices heard.”

        Hogg told MSNBC and Time magazine that he was in an AP environmental science class when the attack occurred.

        Time reported that Hogg and other students tried to exit the building after a fire alarm went off, but a janitor sent them back. “A culinary arts teacher, Ashley Kurth, pulled Hogg and others inside [a classroom], locked the door, and made them hide in a closet,” Time wrote.

        Kurth confirmed that account weeks later in a March 30 report by the Associated Press.

        “I physically grabbed David by the arm and pulled him into my room,” Kurth said. “It is extremely frustrating the kind of information that is being put out there.”

        In an interview with Vox that was published Feb. 20, Hogg said he rode his bike back to the school at 6 p.m. that night with his camera to do more filming. He was interviewed that night by Fox News.

        At least some who shared the fictitious claims later realized as much.

        A writer for the conservative blog RedState, who reported that the CBS video “is casting doubt” on Hogg’s whereabouts during the shooting, retracted her March 26 story and issued a tweet-thread apology. The story’s original headline was changed to read: “UPDATE: CBS Video Confusing. Hogg Was On Campus.”

        Editor’s note: is one of several organizations working with Facebook to help identify and label false stories flagged by readers on the social media network.

        • Whether or not he was at school that day he was not in fact in the building where the murders took place. The only ones who should be given survivor status are those who were in that building.

  19. “known threats”

    Also, lift the edit button restrictions — ban by overhead, but not a “ban, ban”, just like guns — and maybe dial back the “spam” and “virus” blocking. My tinfoil hat keeps telling me that’s based on parti ular key words and arguments. Please prove it wrong…

  20. In it’s next interview, Little Baby Hoggboy will claim that four of the seven assassination attempts were successful!

    • “In it’s next interview, Little Baby Hoggboy will claim that four of the seven assassination attempts were successful!”

      I would demand he produce official medical records to prove that !

  21. Assisination is a criminal act. So it Attempted Assassination. How come there aren’t any arrest records linked to his claim?

  22. OTOH, I wouldn’t rule out someone on the gun-control side plotting to make him a martyr!

  23. When you consider the stats show most of the mass killings are by Right Wing Nut Cases and Right Wing Religious Fanatics I have no doubt that Hogg is probably telling the truth. It is usually the Far Right that threatens to kill people when a person has another political viewpoint, is a member of a minority religion or is an immigrant or a refugee. The Charlottesville Nazi’s were marching to threaten Jews and murdered an innocent women all in one march. Does anyone think they would not kill Hog if they even thought they might have half a chance to do so. They would do it in a heart beat.

    • Where are the red flag laws when you need them? VLAD is a danger to others. Himself is irrelevant.

    • …the stats show most of the mass killings are by Right Wing Nut Cases and Right Wing Religious Fanatics…

      ?!? Citation?

      Florida gay club shooter?, whack-job who missed Hogue-boy?, shooting up a church-guy?; the Army chaplain was far from right wing, likewise the Navy Yard shooter; and today Steve Scalise is reported to be practicing for the Congressional softball team after being shot-up along with other R-party by … I’m thinking not so right wing.

      That’s from memory. You got a well-constructed analysis from a legit data source? Change my mind.

      • T”””””””””””””””””””hat’s from memory. You got a well-constructed analysis from a legit data source? Change my mind.”””””””””””””””””””””

        As usual the Far Right refuse to acknowledge all the legitimate studies on this and they are conclusive i.e. the vast majority of mass murders and terrorists attacks are done by the Far Right.

        • That’s still not a citation, which should be easy, being so well-known.

          BTW, you’re talking-ish to me, not a group. What have you seen or heard that makes you think I’m “far right?”

    • Hey Vlad, then how come over two-thirds of spree killers were Registered Democrats?

  24. I’m pretty sure those assassination attempts may have been partly successful.
    Although, Call of Duty does allow one to respawn.

  25. The real problem is how do we protect ourselves from assassination attempts, mobs (Tucker Carlson), riots (antifa, name the city), n murder, while leaving the No Guns For You folks to live with their own rules.

    How’s this…

    If you advocate for disarming people, No Guns For You. If you don’t, well, go now and don’t die in whatever way seems best to you.

    We may drop the demand that they beg us each for forgiveness for a hundred years of theft, rape, and murder.

  26. Let me guess. Did they attack you, Mr. Hogg, on a cold night while you were innocently carrying a sandwich, throw bleach on you, and put a noose around your neck? How very original of you.

  27. Threats don’t count when they come from your own family, especially sisters. When the term “your dead meat” is coming from your parents it has little to no meaning at all.

  28. “David Hogg said he has been the target of seven “assassination attempts” in the last year.”

    I was raped by David Hogg in a Walmart dressing room. And I liked it.

  29. No one is coming for your life. We just want commonsense life control. Nobody needs a 90-year life. Anyone who has a life should have to register it with the state. Lives with liberty features or full-pursuit-of-happiness capability should be banned.

        • “Towards the end, you may not want it very much…”

          Perhaps, but right now I have difficulty grasping that will never be 20-something again. Anyway, the satire saluted was just great.

  30. Lol quit squealin’ Hogg, there has never been an actual attempt to asassinate him. That little dweeb thinks he’s so important lol.

  31. 7 attempts, 0 arrests, 0 convictions. I’m guessing 0 police reports and 0 actual attempts too.

  32. I thought he had been raped by Trump in the lingerie department at Target!?!

  33. If he was stabbed to death, blown up, or run over with a car I don’t think that would hurt the Second Amendment much.

  34. 7 Assassination attempts???

    dang….well, he better go take karate class. Guns bad, guns very bad.

  35. You’re telling me that 7 times he’s avoided a murder because he’s that cunning, smart, or just a navy seal in disguise? Come on. If someone, practically ANYONE wanted a 17 year old kid dead, it would’ve happened.

  36. Alex, I’ll take “Seven people who aren’t very good at their job” for $1,000!

    • My thoughts too. Will Paladin Possum”they can take your badzooka, I hunt with landmynes” Fudd ,Have Gunm Will Travel

  37. He likes to exaggerate.
    A handful of death threats magically turn into “Seven ASSASSINATION attempts!”

    And everyone gets death threats, especially when you’re young, kids say to each other all the time “I’m going to kill you,” and 99.99% of the time they’re joking.
    Even teachers make these threats against students. When I was in Catholic high school, my teacher (a priest), caught me passing notes and yelled, “I will kill you!”
    I’m sure if that happened to Hogg, he’d call that another “assassination attempt.”

  38. Dudes, Lil Hogg played a game of Call of Duty and a leet camper with a sniper rifle took him out every time he respawned. He then switched to “Hello Kitty Cupcake Adventure”. Somehow he ended up getting gibbed in that game too.

  39. I thought you had to be important for an assassination attempt to be made. He is a pimple on the ass of pelosis.

  40. Just when he was becoming irrelevant and disappearing from the media.

    What a lying dweeb. Was one of the “assassinations” getting rifle ammo in a box from Amazon?

  41. The idea that this twerp (who spent the school shooting hiding in a closet) would survive 7 ‘assassination attempts’ is chuckle-worthy.

  42. Hogg-boyy is irrelevant. His 15 minutes were over a long time ago, and this is just a PR stunt to put his name back in the news.

    With long-range precision shooting the thing these days, the pool of technically proficient potential assassins increases daily. If someone actually thought Hogg-boyy’s life was worth the price of a bullet, he would have been whacked a long time ago

  43. Raised by an FBI agent? Those FBI people are really impressing nobody lately and neither are universities. I would give anything to see him on Jeopardy (and not the dumbed down celebrity version). Nobody in the history of the world has had and been unscathed by 7 attempts. He is a fuckin’ dumbass lying dirt bag which makes him perfect for a seat in Congress. His “tweets” are priceless. Dumb Hogg will never be popular jokes since they are all true. Q:How many Dumb Hoggs does it take to change a light bulb? A:The NRA.

    Now will someone gift him a membership in the NRA and GOA? Then send him to visit Venezuela for a year or two? Please.

  44. Please quit showing this moron and he’ll go away. I don’t know how many times I’ve seen this same story. So stop it!
