Parkland survivor David Hogg demands QAnon Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene apologize to families of shooting victims

PARKLAND survivor David Hogg branded "QAnon Rep" Marjorie Taylor Greene "pathetic" – demanding she apologize to families of the victims.

It comes after a resurfaced video showed Greene, 46, confronting Hogg – who survived the 2018 school shooting – and calling him a "coward" over his gun rights stance.

The Georgia representative appears to accuse Hogg, 20, of "attacking our second amendment" by "using kids" as he met with senators in Washington DC.

Speaking to CNN on Friday, Hogg said: "The thing I care most about in this situation isn't myself but the real people that she offended in Parkland, and Las Vegas and Sandy Hook that have a permanently empty bedroom, that have a permanently empty place at the dinner table. They are the real victims here who deserve an apology, not me.

"She's detracting from their suffering and their experience because she can't know their pain."

Continuing, Hogg said she owes the families "an apology" after the "worst thing in the world happened to them."

"I think they're trying to paint themselves as the victims…the little guys so … It's just pathetic – they're not the victims here," he added.

"There's a lot of immature adults in power that cannot simply have the humility to leave and admit that they were wrong before they face consequences."

During the unearthed footage, Greene is seen chasing after Hogg – who was 18 at the time – shouting: "David why are you supporting the red flag laws?"

"If Scot Peterson [the former Broward Sheriff's Deputy], the resource officer at Parkland had done his job, then Nikolas Cruz wouldn't have killed anybody in your high school or at least protected them," she continues.

"Why are you supporting red flag gun laws that attack our second amendment right and why are you using kids as a barrier? Do you not know how to defend your stance?"

In response, Hogg says: "Look, I'm an American citizen. I'm a gun owner. I own a conceal carry permit."

She replies: "I carry a gun for protection for myself and you are using your lobby and the kids to try to take away my second amendment rights."

And California Rep Jimmy Gomez announced the move to expel Greene fromCongress after the video surfaced – and Greene defended her comments to Hogg.

Gomez said he will introduce a resolution that would remove Greene "in light of numerous reports revealing her repeated endorsements of sedition, domestic terrorism and political violence."

Gomez cited Greene's belief in multiple conspiracy theories, as well as past social media posts calling for violence against political leaders as a reason for the Georgia Rep's removal.

Last week, the Parkland school survivor revealed he will take on conservative MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell.

Hogg says he will launch his own pillow company as "progressive competition" for Lindell – who is a staunch Trump supporter and outspoken conspiracy theorist.

Lindell was banned from Twitter for spreading misinformation about voter fraud and had his MyPillow products dropped from major retailers including Wayfair and Bath Bed & Beyond last month.

Hogg — who was a Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School student in Florida during the 2018 slaughter — tweeted that he’ll team up with the progressive tech entrepreneur William LeGate to create a direct rival for Lindell's company.

“This pillow fight just got very real,” Hogg tweeted Thursday.

The company is yet-to-be-named but Hogg’s supporters on Twitter are begging for him to call it PillowHogg.
