David Hogg: 'Non-Binary People' Founded Gun Control Movement 'Centuries Ago'
Gun control activist makes bizarre claim on Twitter
Liberal gun control activist David Hogg gave a surprise 'history lesson' on Sunday after he claimed the gun control movement was launched by "non-binary people," gay women, and racial minorities.
Hogg said Sunday on Twitter:
"This is a tweet for [sic] the founders of the gun violence prevention movement started centuries ago by almost entirely black, brown and indigenous LGBT women and non-binary people that never got on the news or in most history books."
"We may not know all your names, but thank you."
But Hogg failed to state when the gun control movement began.
Though history books and the media link pro-gun culture to racism, unfortunately for Hogg there isn't much else concerning LGBT or nonbinary people.
Last year, the activist claimed pro-gun culture was connected to genocide and white supremacy.
"I think it comes down to reckoning with our history and our history of white supremacy in the United States and the fact that we live in a post-genocidal society oftentimes that was orchestrated by the United States government," he said at the time.
Earlier this month, Hogg mocked the gun-rights activists marching on Virginia Capitol in Richmond as insecure fascist wannabes in the thrall of white supremacy who need to read a book.
The activist sent out a series of tweets, and retweets repeatedly characterizing the march as a Nazi enterprise.

“VA is in a state of emergency because white supremacists and nazis are using their 2nd amendment rights to shut down the 1st amendment rights of students, veterans, and clergy,” he wrote.
It's been noted hogg has a habit of making even the most hardened Democrats squirm with uneducated claims.
In 2018, Hogg called on Canadian citizens to meddle in US elections during a screening for Michael Moore's Trump-bashing film "Fahrenheit 11/9"
Hogg, along with fellow students from Parkland, Florida, was invited to the stage to "say a few words."
As Hogg ranted about what he saw as an injustice, someone yelled, “Shame!”
“Turn that shame into your vote,” he responded, adding, “if you’re not Canadian.”
“Um,” he continued, turning to Moore, “I think Canadians can donate to political campaigns in the United States.”
Moore shook his head in disagreement.
“They can’t?” Hogg asked.
