VIDEO: David Hogg Claims Clear Backpacks Infringe On His Rights

OfficerBlue

In an interview, Stoneman Douglas student David Hogg made some questionable claims.

Stoneman Douglas student turned anti-gun activist, David Hogg, claimed in an Axios interview that students' First Amendment rights were being infringed upon by the use of clear backpacks.

His statement comes after it was announced that Stoneman Douglas students will be required to carry clear plastic backpacks when they return to classes after Spring Break, instead of their usual book bags, CNN reported.

Additionally, eight Florida State troopers joined the security staff on Thursday morning at the Parkland high school where a former student shot 17 students and faculty on Feb. 14, the Orlando Weekly reported.

Blue Lives Matter is working on a project to defend gun ownership. The project will launch if we get 100k followers on The Firearm Project Facebook page. Please like the page to show your support and help defend our rights. 'Like' The Firearm Project on mobile HERE. 'Like' The Firearm Project on desktop HERE.

In the interview, Hogg voiced his opposition to the clear backpacks.

"I think after we come back from spring break, they're requiring all of us to have clear backpacks," Hogg said. "I think one of the most important, one of the other important things to realize is, many students want their privacy."

"There are many, for example, females at our school." Hogg continued. "When they go through their menstrual cycle, they don't want people to see their tampons and stuff. And it's just unnecessary and it's embarrassing for a lot of the students and it makes them feel isolated and separated from the rest of American school culture when they're having essentially their First Amendment rights infringed upon because they can't freely wear whatever backpack they want..."

It's not clear how clear backpacks allegedly violate students' rights to freedom of speech.

Hogg offered an alternative solution to keep students safe.

"What we should have is just more policies that make sure that these students are feeling safe and secure in their schools," Hogg concluded.

Typical whinie liberal puke.
Safety protocol is instituted and then they cmplain. Action was take. And now they dont like it.
What would you like more gun zone signage and i hate President Trump and hope the NRA dies?
Remember puke. Obama’s DOJ and Broward County Sheriffs office created the foundation for kids and teachers to die in that FL. H.S. The program to shit can criminal activity in schools to get more funds is what caused that sociopath to be able to slaughter. Sheriffs office tesponded to numerous domestics on the shooter and never collared him or removed his guns required by law in a domestic involving menacing with a weapon or bringing live ammo to school. The school never called pd and allowed this nut to be allowed to be free to kill.

When he is a tax paying citizen, works and contributes to society instead of crying about it maybe he can then have a voice to change the country. Until then, graduate from school and continue living in your mom and dad's basement. The school superintendent in PA wants to have buckets of rocks to throw at a shooter. That would work...............................sigh...................

I just wish this little turd didn't get so much air time . He thrives on it. It frightens me to think what he and the clueless others like him will become as older adults .His Left wing FBI father must be very proud of his little boy.

the irony is he is complaining how this infringes on his rights but doesn't see that he is trying to infringe on our rights with the gun laws he wants to impose on us.

Why do I keep seeing this kid. He has no idea what he is talking about. About the girls and their personal belongings, they can have them in a bag the is not transparent inside the backpack.

Not that I agree with this kid but clear backpacks is stupid, you can stick a handgun in your waistband or just walk into the school with an AR, clear backpacks are a feel good band aid for the administrators.

Love how the millenial brown shirts act just like the german gestapo brown shirts of 1933. They bash their parents and follow these left wing facist. They preach they are taking control of the democracy. The little ass hole didnt lean shit in school. This is not a democracy. It is a represenative republic.

All progressives and commie a like preach same bs. Take back democracy.
That code for overthrow present government and constitution.

Ok for this little shit to have freedom of speech to tell me what rights he will entitle me too. GO FUCK YOUR SELF BROWN SHIRT.

BARAK OBAMA FAILED YOU, SCHOOL FAILED YOU, and BROWARD COUNTY SHERIFF AND HIS DEPUTY FAILED YOU, NOT PRESIDENT TRUMP. GET INFORMED AND STOP GETTING MANIPULATED BY THE LEFT FACIST WHO USE YOU TO PROPEL THEIR AGENDA. THEY ARE THE ONES WITH BLOOD ON THEIR HANDS NOT PRESIDENT TRUMP OR THE NRA RETARD.

Just watch your rights trickle away once you allow them to remove guns. You have NO idea the path you are taking, but are willing to let them build your ego by using you. You are too stupid to even see it. Bet they tell you this "fame" will lead to a career in politics or acting. lol You are just a useful idiot, Hogg,.... for now!

So let me think about this. Democrap mindset "Ok to have a bomb /knife or other weapon in a back pack" but Guns some how discharge on their own AMAZING how the son of a "HOG" thinks

We live in a mostly free society, and as such must expect to have to provide for our own security. We cannot, nor should we, look to the government to provide safety for us on a daily basis, we must do that for ourselves. Anyone who thinks that these young people are not being led around and told what to say by others is sadly misinformed.

How about NO backpacks and no cell phones? That way very little can be concealed, and the "chicken little" effect of all the crap on social media can't be spread around like wild fire! It's scary to think that this generation of reactionary spoiled brats will be running the country one day.

Hogs clearly doesn't care about school safety. A simple act like changing backpacks to clear ones would result in immediate change for safer schools, but bc it isn't gun control, he isn't interested. It's time he sits back down and put his effort into his school work. Typical snowflake wanting to strip people of the Rights that they don't care about and whining about any inconveniences they may have to endure! Smh. Sickening.

That skinny little nauseating little stain. When all of this comes crashing down around his ears, and he is standing in a mess of discarded papers and wires where everyone he thought had befriended him doesn't even say goodbye, he will find out just exactly how this world will use you up if you let them. Easy to be high and mighty when you feel like so many have your back, really hard to be, when you find out they've been using it as a distraction and perfecting stabbing people in the back. You were an easy target young Mr. Hogg. Conceited, arrogant, better than others, and most importantly gullible. Go the fuck away already!

It's funny how this dickhead thinks his is part of the ruling generation. By almost every definition, I am not even a boomer, but listen to your elders, boy, there are millions and millions of younger people that already view you as "old" and wish YOU would get out of the way. And it will get worse everyday of your life. You just don't understand it, YET.

A clear backpack has nothing to do with free speech. Also, when attending a public school setting, you don't free speech rights anyway. IF that was the case, than school papers could post any articles as long as the editor of the paper is okay with it. Which is not the case, the school officials, typically the principle, must approve of the content. Basically, it is like the state/federal government being required to approve of all news stories.

Its interesting that he is only concerned about the civil rights of one segment of the population and the rights of everyone. Gun control isn't and shouldn't be the focus of protecting the students. Time, money and effort should be spent on making the schools safer - since protecting our children at school should be of paramount importance. Simple things like restricting entry and exit from the building by using one set of doors and by using metal detectors and x-ray machines upon entry would minimize risks [I taught at a school that used these measures.].

well I guess the girls can carry purses with their monthly necessities in it or maybe a little throw clutch purse to put them in for the backpack..I'm sure that once it's opened or if small enough..they won't be put through a spectacle like they do at the airports..get a grip boy, you can't have your cake and eat it too...

I completely agree. However, this is a "open" school like many. The majority of the classrooms open directly to the outside.
Honestly, I believe that this kid wants to keep his face in front of cameras. His arguments are very self serving instead of wide ranging. If he is so very concerned about safety, he would not be using this to be an argument. Especially since the 'why restrict everyone for the actions of a few' is the backbone of his argument. However, he does not see the same in the 2nd Ammendment.
The safety of children needs to be thee focus. That needs to be addressed in by multidisciplinary adjustments. Including mental health, security, law enforcement and community. One adjustment (gun control) will not fix this issue.

David Hogg was initially a sound voice for gun control. He has done what most angry white men (he's still a boy who thinks he knows it all though so lets hand him some humble pie). BTW:**to those of you who name call "liberals" as a derogatory statement: piss off, it's not about that and get over someone having an opinion different from yours!! Hogg is just a scared kid who just survived a brutal massacre I doubt you name callers have ever lived through so shut up until you've lived what he's lived through! I'm proud of the kids and adults taking to the streets by the millions.. That being said, I will not stand for some punk kid telling me I'm a baby boomer who fucked it up so don't go there with me. I'm not a baby boomer and I almost lost my life at Standing Rock. Believe it or not KIDS, many adults DO know a bit more about life than do you so LISTEN. White culture in America doesn't teach children to respect elders and it's gross. OKAY, about DAVID HOGG: he is in this for HIMSELF. HIS FAME and nothing else. Emma Gonzales: she's in this authentically. Watch Hogg speak: he is self absorbed and not connected to what he's saying. During his speeches and interviews he does what Rump does in that he is divisive saying older people didn't do their jobs so move out of the way so they can....he says "fuck" every other word and talks about being "exhausted". His parents need to go get him therapy for acute stress and keep him out of the news. For his sake and the sake of gun control movement. He's now giving it a bad name. The FIRST AMENDMENT is about free speech. He's in high school and he doesn't know this?! But some yappy teenager is telling baby boomers we fucked all this up? Okay yappy teenagers, how about all we adults sit play video games, play on our phones someone else bought us and pays for every month, play with our friends, do nothing while you support the household AND fight all of the fights we do everyday for a better future for David Hogg: he's another angry, homophobic wannabe famous dude who doesn't know shit. Get him to a therapist to work through the trauma of being in that situation and point the microphones and camera's on people who REALLY DO CARE ABOUT THIS ISSUE AND ARE INFORMED.

“White culture in America doesn't teach children to respect elders and it's gross” what does white have to do with anything? That’s an incredibly racist statement. I’m white, and you better believe I teach my kids to respect authority. The color of my skin has nothing to do with how my kids react to people.

His comment that "white culture" doesn't teach respect....that's the very definition of racist.

Many people don't know the definition of "racist". There are some people who will use it every time they don't get their way, no? I mean, look at the recent incident of the black kid who was shot by the police holding a cell phone. The first words out of every black persons mouth was that the officers involved were racists, just because they happen to be white. We live in sad times.

No, an adult was showing you a dictionary.
This PC 'only whites can be racist' crap was done years ago, despite SJW's trying to commandeer the language.
His assessment of an entire RACE OF PEOPLE as having a specific lack of virtue was not only untrue, it was prima facie evidence of RACISM.
I know the left hates words with meaning, but you clearly don't understand that dictionaries supply them.
No one's ASKING you to re-write the language so that the racist won't be called a racist.
You're doing it to deflect from his clear racism.

Then, you went all AGEIST on the thread.
SJWs: Thinking they're mooning people, when all they're showing is a dirty ass.

No, what is funny is his reasoning. He thinks having a clear backpack is violating his freedom of speech? Nothing here is hindering his freedom of speech. He can still say or write anything he wants to. Even stupid stuff like this. No one is stopping him or even trying to hinder him.
I'm sure that you could relate to the menstrual cycle stuff though. But that still isn't stopping you from talking.
What is irritating is people like you think this kid is smart.

Okay. Back to school for you. First of all you have to know the meaning of words. I will try to keep it simple for you. Let's start with the word "or".

Or is "used to connect alternative terms for the same thing". You know, one or the other. Now let's look at the definition of racist given. "a person who shows OR feels discrimination OR prejudice against people of other races, OR..". See the word "or" there? It is used quite a few times. In this instance that means one of the possible conditions were met.

Wookiethechoo is correct in his use of the word racist. Now get the dunce hat you are so use to wearing and go to the corner.
