David Hogg, one of the Parkland massacre celebrities who made his television rounds and got verified on Twitter has begun a shakedown of significant proportions.
Hogg is calling out Publix after the Florida-based grocery store chain backed a gubernatorial candidate that supports the National Rifle Association (NRA). Hogg and his student buddies have been demonizing the civil rights organization over the massacre that happened at their school, even though no NRA member was associated with the shootings.
Hogg wants one million dollars from the chain and a promise to never support NRA candidates again. Where did he learn his negotiating tactics from? The Reverend Jesse Jackson?

The public face of the gun control movement demanded $1 million Thursday from the Florida-based grocery chain in a tweet, just one day after calling for a “die-in” protest at its stores.
Publix is being targeted by Mr. Hogg for its support of Adam Putnam, a Republican gubernatorial candidate who is now the state’s agricultural commissioner. The Tampa Bay Times reported earlier this week that Publix had given $670,000 during the last three years to Putnam campaigns.
Mr. Hogg not only sought atonement money from the grocery chain in Thursday’s tweet, he also demanded a pledge of ideological fealty to the gun-control movement.
I call on @Publix to donate double the money they gave to Putman to the Stoneman Douglas Victims fund, $1,000,000. And never support an A rated NRA politician again.

Cleaning company, Facilities Pro Sweeps says the property manager for this shopping center called them to come clean up the protest display where @davidhogg111 & classmates are protesting @Publix financial backing of pro-gun politicians.

He demands. Really? Or what? You know his parents must have been terrified the past 18 years. Spare the rod, spoil the attention brat.
Maybe someone can post a list of Publix Stores, so those who live in the area of the establishments can go shop there and tell the manager why we are shopping there. In an attempt to counter the possibility of protests, we should be vocal and get the word out.
