Marjory Stoneman Douglas shooting survivor David Hogg has become a household name. He's continually pushed the progressive agenda and, in particular, gun control measures. In fact, he co-founded the "March for Our Lives" organization, a student group that's sole focus is on advancing so-called "common sense" gun control measures, like an "assault weapons" ban and "high capacity" magazine ban.
Pro-gun advocates frequently turn their nose up at Hogg's suggestions. Something amazing happened on Wednesday. He actually said something that conservatives could agree with: TikTok, the new social media platform, should be used to slam the Chinese government for their atrocities. In particular, Hogg cited the Chinese regime's refusal to allow Hong Kong to have any form of democracy.
Tik Tok is a national security threat that should only only be used to call out the Chinese government (who controls it) for their atrocities and human rights abuses.— David Hogg (@davidhogg111) March 25, 2020
Seriously y'all memes and jokes are fun but downloading the spyware of an authoritarian regime is not.
I'm not kidding we need to #CancelTikTok— David Hogg (@davidhogg111) March 25, 2020
Another reason I will not be going on there is because they censor activists voices in Hong Kong and around the world that call out the CCP for their atrocities.— David Hogg (@davidhogg111) March 25, 2020
I refuse to be complicit in the death of democracy in Hong Kong by supporting Tik Tok. https://t.co/pnrvaFZqaw
Conservatives were shocked to say they agreed with Hogg. After all, we're typically worlds apart on things, especially on guns.
