David Hogg was very vocal during this weekend’s march, regurgitating the lines that CNN fed him. But when he was challenged by Kyle Kashuv to a debate, he shut his mouth quickly.
It’s not hard to understand why. Hogg is like a Hollywood actor, he can repeat the lines and he can even use the right emphasis on the words but they are still someone else’s words.
But when you start asking them questions, their answers can become confusing if not downright idiotic. That’s because they are not called on to think for themselves.
Hogg has been very careful where appears on TV, afraid that if he goes to the wrong one, he will be asked tough questions and will reveal his lack of knowledge.
The March Against Our Rights, er, March For Our Lives in Washington D.C. was ostensibly led by some of the liberal media-adored student survivors of the Parkland, Florida school shooting — with some hefty financial and logistical help from several prominent left-wing organizations — chief among them student David Hogg.
But not all of the Parkland students are in favor of strict gun control as a solution to prevent mass shootings, most notably Kyle Kashuv, who instead of calling for ineffective and unconstitutional gun bans spent time speaking with legislators on both sides of the political aisle and helped get school safety legislation passed as part of the recent omnibus spending bill.
As these two students continue to emerge as leading young figures on both sides of the gun control issue, The Daily Wire reported that libertarianesque classical liberal political pundit Dave Rubin offered to moderate a civil debate on the issue between both of the students, after the idea was suggested by one of his Twitter followers.

Kashuv immediately agreed to the debate but you would probably have to look under Hogg’s bed to get his answer.
He has been totally silenced by the thought of having to debate someone who has actually studied up on the subject.
