A few thoughts:

Any movement to transform America’s gun politics requires neutralizing the National Rifle Association and its power over the Republican Party. It means attacking a corrupt system of legalized bribery in which politicians ignore public opinion and take the NRA’s blood money and do its bidding.

The GOP has devolved into merely nothing more than a far-right, fascist, criminal syndicate. Trump the Dump, who in recent days has said he wants to arm teachers, received $31 million in help from the NRA on the 2016 election.

Gun-right lobbying groups gave $5.9 million to Republican candidates for Congress that year, and only $106,000 to Democrats. According to the Center for Responsive Politics, more than half of the members of the House of Representatives received campaign donations from interests representing gun rights and manufacturers.

Fifty U.S. Senators received $27 million to vote against background checks and other gun-control measures that enjoy majority public support.

David Hogg reacts to Laura Ingraham’s apology

“Laura Ingraham Trolls Parkland School Shooting Survivor David Hogg”

LOS ANGELES – A number of advertisers have abandoned Fox News host Laura Ingraham’s weeknight show after she alleged that Parkland, Florida, shooting survivor David Hogg was bitter over being rejected for admission by multiple universities.

Those companies pulling their ads include TripAdvisor, Expedia, Hulu, Johnson & Johnson, Wayfair, Nestlé and Nutrish. A spokesman for TripAdvisor said the company doesn’t “condone the inappropriate comments made by this broadcaster. In our view, these statements focused on a high school student, cross the line of decency. “

In a tweet sent on Wednesday, Ingraham said Hogg had been rejected from four colleges and that he then “whines about it.” In response, Hogg mounted a social media campaign to get advertisers to pull their ads from Ingraham’s show.

He told NBC News that those fleeing advertisers represented about one-third of those he listed for action.

On Thursday, after Hogg’s online campaign was a success, Ingraham apologized, via Twitter, “for any upset or hurt my tweet caused him or any of the brave victims of Parkland.”

In his Thursday night interview with NBC News correspondent Kerry Sanders, Hogg said he did not accept the apology.

“No,” he said. “She only cares about her pocketbook, and that’s just sad.”

In fact, while he praised those advertisers that left, Hogg also lamented that it took his campaign to hasten their exit. He noted that Ingraham also attacked NBA stars LeBron James and Kevin Durant after they criticized President Donald Trump. She admonished the players to “shut up and dribble.”

The Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School student, meanwhile, said he has been accepted to Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, California State University San Marcos (CSUSM) and Florida Atlantic University. He listed the University of California schools, which generally have a higher threshold for admittance, as having turned him down. The University of California campuses rejected Hogg despite his reported 4.1 GPA.
