We’re living in an age of participation trophies and selfie sticks.
And for some reason, people are being encouraged to speak on things about which they’re completely unaware.
Black-masked fascists are fascistically fighting for fascism while calling themselves the opposite as some applaud and agree (here).
Revolutionaries are hocking socialism without ever having stopped to find out what it means (here).
Black people are being called white supremacists (here).
People are raging with bigotry while condemning the word (here).
Why know things? Why make sense? Just assume you already know all that is in the world, with no reason to think so. It can get you elected to Congress (here).
It can also land you a position as noted activist — just witness David Hogg’s recent point-making tweet:
Buying an AR-15 shouldn’t be easier than voting.

You might think he’d wanna find out if that’s true first. But nope!

Voting: it's free, just show up and be a citizen
Buying a firearm: 100's-1000's dollars, background check, permission from ATF(unconstitutional) for certain items, Age restricts on some items.

That's probably why it isn't.

Do you have to fill out 4473, give the FFL dealer your drivers license, and have a background check down in order to vote every year?

People offered a variety of angles:
David Hogg ladies and gentleman, a boy that has never bought a gun or voted. Most likely he’s never paid rent or served his country either. It’s safe to say he hasn’t read the Constitution and definitely has no idea how the bill of rights was formed or why #2A exists. #worthless

Getting into Harvard shouldn’t be easier than voting.

Swing and a miss, soy boy.

Do you get paid in stupidity points?
Dead people can’t buy AR-15s but they will be voting in the next election.

Nearly every elected official in California would lose their jobs overnight.

That's because all you have to do is walk across our border and you can vote.
