Has David Hogg become another SEIU puppet? The Florida teenager-turned-gun-control-activist is now advocating for the $15 minimum wage.
David Hogg, the Florida 18-year old who has garnered national attention for his gun control activism following the February mass murder of 17 students at his high school, is now apparently advocating for the $15 minimum wage.
On Saturday, the controversial Hogg tweeted from Boston’s Gay Pride parade and, while there, apparently advocated for raising the minimum wage to $15 per hour.

In reaction to Hogg’s new-found #FightFor15 activism, twitterers engaged in skepticism over his seeming shift on his activist motives. One tweet, in particular, received a response from Hogg.
No one is more full of sh*t than David Hogg. WTF does a $15 an hour minimum wage, that he was promoting at a gay pride parade on Saturday, have to do with guns? Emma cares about guns. Hogg cares about making himself a star.

Here is Hogg’s response:
The $15 minimum wage is to help spur gun violence in lower income communities so kids don’t have to resort to crime to subsidize their income help raise their family. Right now it’s right around the anniversary Pulse nightclub

Accordingly, someone else pointed out Hogg’s misuse of the word ‘spur’ (see definition here).
“…help spur gun violence in lower income communities…”
You… you don’t know what the word “spur” means, do you? https://t.co/YudM3LKYrb

It is interesting that Hogg’s gun-control activism is suddenly morphing into the #FightFor15 debate.
Of course, this begs the question:
a) Has David Hogg been bought? And…
b) If so, by whom?
