Earlier this evening, Big League Politics rocked the internet with a story exposing discrepancies in David Hogg’s original telling of events during the shooting in Parkland, Florida, casting serious doubt that he was even in the school at the time of the shooting.
The story includes a video that lays out the doubts very clearly.
In short, Hogg, who is one of the most vocal leaders in the anti-gun Never Again movement, had discrepancies in his initial statements of his experience during the shooting. Following the shooting, Hogg initially stated that he was in the building when shots rang out. But in a later released interview with CBS News, Hogg stated that he grabbed his camera equipment and rode his bike three miles from his home to his school to document the shooting that he admits he wasn’t sure happened yet.
Shortly after our story was released, Red State reporter Sarah Rumpf released a now heavily redacted story mirroring our findings. But shortly after releasing her story, it was redacted based on claims made by far-left media outfit Vox.
The Vox article reads:
“At 6 pm after the shooting, I took my camera, got on my bike. I rode in basically twilight. And I ride my bike three miles down winding sidewalks and find my way to the school, as I’ve done in previous years. All the while, I was making sure my camera bag didn’t rip open, because if you zip it a certain way, the camera falls out, and it would be destroyed.”
In response, Big League Politics has been receiving scrutiny from news organizations with known links to George Soros and other leftists. The anti-Trump Reagan Battalion even directly told their followers not to share our article. Those demands were then mirrored by political hacks working for Never Trump candidates.
Despite these attacks on us, which is to expected when breaking stories that challenge the mainstream media narrative, our story is crystal clear and accurate.
Here’s why the Left-Wing Conspiracy Theory Explanation Is Totally Bogus:
In the CBS News interview, where Hogg states that he rode his bike to school in order to document the shooting, Hogg alludes that he did not know if the mass shooting had occurred yet. According to the Vox article, which Red State referenced to redact their original article, Hogg did not leave on his bike to go to the school until 6:00 PM, hours after the shooting occurred.
But according to video that he took in the school earlier, Hogg claimed to have heard gun shots around 2:30 PM, and later heard a gun shot at 2:52, when according to the official timeline the gun shots stopped at 2:28 PM.
Hogg also identified the shooter as Nikolas Cruz at 3:13 PM, according to the video he took. This raises another un-answered question: Cruz was not apprehended until 3:41, and according to Hogg, the students he was with had been in lockdown for at least the previous hour. Media reports did not confirm his name until hours later. How could they have known it was Cruz? Even if someone had seen Cruz during the actual shooting, it’s unlikely that they would have known Cruz. The school has around 3200 students, and Hogg himself admits in the CBS documentary that he did not even know the 17 people who were killed.
This information clearly casts serious doubt on the fact that David Hogg was in the school when the shooting occurred. While other news organizations will back out and believe every claim coming from far-left news publications, Big League Politics will continue to ask the questions that nobody else dares ask.
