It seems that foul-mouthed anti-gun demagogue David Hogg needs a refresher in basic American history before he ships out to Harvard. Responding to President Trump’s Oval Office address on immigration and border security, Hogg implied that the United States is illegitimate and made up of “stolen land.”
“Reminder: No one is illegal on stolen land,” he opined on Twitter.

Hogg’s acolytes naturally agreed, illustrating their ignorance of history as well, but a number of people took exception to his short and uninformed missive.
According to the Washington Times, the first response to Hogg came from a Twitter user named “Kelz,” who informed Hogg that, “It’s past your bedtime little one.”
“We don’t deserve his genius. No, really. We don’t deserve it. We haven’t done anything to deserve it,” Twitchy sarcastically said.
Here’s just a small sampling of the criticism hurled at Hogg:
I'm thinking this reasoning would cause democrats to lose elections. Open borders with no vetting isn't popular with anyone.

Except leftists like Hogg and his ilk.
Another person tried to give Hogg a short history lesson, something he obviously never received in high school:
The Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo settled the US/Mexican border in 1848. We paid $13,000,000 for the land. I guess they don't teach history at Harvard.https://t.co/YqpzCXZMHQ

Son, you need to stop living 400 years ago. We won, there are consequences of losing wars. We are now a nation of laws. Live and learn your history son.

Good luck with that.
One Twitter user called Hogg out for his blatant hypocrisy:
Until you and your family give away your own land and house to a Native American family of your choosing you are simply a hypocrite. Let us know when you do that and then we can start taking you serious. That goes for all of you who try to use this argument. But none of will.

So you’re trying to invalidate the whole idea of the United States? Go live somewhere else then.

Please. And don’t go away mad…

But wait. One Twitter critic reminded Hogg:
Harvard is built on stolen land. https://t.co/NEcQm0f4cx

Incidents like this is why many refer to leftists like Hogg as “low-information.” Let’s hope Harvard can actually teach him something.
