    Instead, these 17 year olds (hardly “children”; we are talking more along the lines of those annoying college freshmen we all know, every one of which thinks they are an activist) have chosen, in sound mind, to portray themselves as capable, competent and willing and able to be the face of a political movement that they believe their elders have been incapable of advancing.

    Their entire message is “we are not afraid, we have informed, adult opinions which are just as valid as the generation ahead of us, but our generation is rising, and is going to effect change.”

    Well, that’s not the position of scarred, traumatized youths who are incapable of processing what they went through and who need sheltering. You can’t have your cake and eat it too; if you are going to announce yourself as the leader of a political cause, of which you are a fearless and tireless champion now due to your experiences, you cannot also shield yourself from criticism because of those experiences.

    You can be one or the other. If you have chosen to be political leader, then you have abdicated childhood and the kid glove treatment that comes with it. Hogg is choosing to be in front of a microphone at this point, because he considers his mental faculties and opinions on par with any adults on the subject (and no doubt for his 15 minutes of fame and a book deal to boot). Therefore he’s a public figure capable of receiving criticism like any adult.

    And he’s gonna get tons of it, cause his idiotic takes are ignorant and easily debunked. Just like Bipo’s.
    You have come a long way since your early days of posting on this site. You are on the right track and I for one am glad to see the progress in ideology.

    That's what you guys say. Don't like your job, get a new one.

    Don't like your pay, get a new job. blah blah blah.

    She'll have twitter, facebook, whatever to express her views.

    She would just be replaced by someone else with similar views. So let's not pretend like this will have any impact.

    Oh yeah, losing your career is an appropriate punishment for gently mocking an arrogant, outspoken teen who didn't get into four colleges. Meanwhile, turd boy continues to slander millions of Americans as "child killers" without consequence.

    I’m a free market, free speech guy but that doesn’t make what the snot nosed kid said any less douchy.

    I do agree that the kids went through a traumatic event, I’ll give them that. Still, no event gives people a free pass in life. Every individual is still responsible for their own deal.

    Figures. You're a fucking cunt too.
    First off, those getting rebutted aren't children. And being traumatized doesn't give you the right to go out and MF and insult everyone that disagrees with you on various things with vile intent. Their parents should be given them some guidance on how to behave, but apparently they are of the mindset that let's their kids behave that way. If you as a "child" lash out in the vile way they have been, then you should expect to be countered the same way. And pushing back thoughtfully against their views is not an attack either, it's debate because they are wrong on so many levels. And believe it or not, I agree with some of your solutions as well. Some.

    Left-wing adults are just using these "kids" to get what they want. Same thing with DACA. Why do you think they drag these poor little urchins to press conferences advocating for amnesty?
