Hogg Comes Down On America For It’s Oppressive History

David Hogg was interviewed by Chris Hayes where they talked about America’s violent history and how it is full of white supremacy.

“We have a culture that is a very violent culture in America, how do you and the movement think about that?” Chris Hayes asked David Hogg.

“I think it comes down to reckoning with our history, and our history of white supremacy in the United States, and the fact that we live in a post-genocidal society, oftentimes that was orchestrated by the United States government and that, if we want to talk about mass shootings, we have to recognize the massive number of indigenous mass shootings that were committed by the United States government.”

“I think back to the Battle of Wounded Knee and the several hundred Native Americans, predominantly men, women, and children that were slaughtered by the United States government back in the 19th century, and how that’s never discussed as a mass shooting and that’s wrong because those people were not armed, and we were stealing their land,” Hogg continued. “I think it comes down to reckoning with the tough history and realizing that it’s okay if you recognize the actual history of the United States, it’s okay to hate that injustice that much of this country has been founded on and much of the oppression that this country was founded on. That doesn’t mean you hate America because it means you love your fellow Americans so much that you don’t want to repeat the same mistakes we’ve made in the past,” Hogg concluded.

It looks like he is just trying to find something to complain about. Americans had to fight with the Natives, in many cases, it was us or them. We are a product of our past, if not for these past battles many of us would not be here. We should all be proud to be American as many people gave up their lives for the freedoms we have today. Where there is nothing wrong with learning from the past, you can’t compare it to the culture of today, things were far different back then and this new generation of progressives would likely never have survived.
