The founder of the viral #WalkAway campaign has responded to allegations made on Twitter by activist David Hogg that the campaign is “Russian propaganda.”
“It is understandable that Mr. Hogg would be incapable of comprehending a movement that is born organically from the purity, positivity, and passion of the people – grassroots and free from manipulation, considering the genesis of ‘March For Our Lives,'” Brandon Straka, #WalkAway founder told Big League Politics.
Hogg, known for agitating for gun control after the tragic Valentine’s Day shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland FL, has been on a nationwide book tour with his non-profit, “March For Our Lives.” He tweeted the following Sunday, attaching a CNN article that echoed a similar sentiment:
“David Hogg has, once more, waged an attack on the truth, and waged an attack on the validity of the voices of real Americans as they honestly and bravely tell their stories,” Straka said. “Mr. Hogg has again become a puppet parroting the crackpot narratives of his handlers at CNN.”
Hogg is currently on a 60-day bus tour that will travel through 20 states and make 75 stops. He has been pictured traveling with armed bodyguards on the tour.
Hogg did not return BLP’s request for comment.
