David Hogg’s hands are drenched in the blood of an innocent victim, according to reports. His selfish pursuit of fame and fortune has now led to the death of a child, and Hogg has been silent about it ever since the news broke.

The incident occurred on Friday, April 20, when a Parkland Middle School student followed the lead of Hogg and his Marjory Stoneman High School classmates by walking out of school to protest gun crimes. That’s when Texas student Jonathan Benko walked out of Parkland Middle School in El Paso with 12 – 15 other students. But, as kids will do when you let them out of school in the middle of a school day with no repercussions, Benko and several others broke from the pack and went to visit a park nearby.
In order to get to the park, Benko and his classmates had to cross a busy highway. Benko was the last one to attempt to cross it, and he did not make it. As he ran across Loop 375, he was hit by a Ford F-150 pickup truck, according to the El Paso Police Department. He was quickly taken to the University Medical Center of El Paso where he died from his injuries. The hospital where he died is the same hospital that employs his mother as a nurse and his uncle as a respiratory therapist.
“All of us at U.M.C. are heartbroken by the loss of a child belonging to one of our associates, especially a child as young as Jonathan,” chief executive of the medical center, Jacob Cintron, said in a statement, according to The New York Times.
“It is illegal to walk on a highway. It’s next to impossible for motorists to move out of the way of pedestrians on the roadway and that’s why it’s a restricted passage,” El Paso Police Department Sgt. Robert Gomez said at a press conference discussing Benko’s death. But is it also illegal for a school to allow students to leave during school hours when parents have entrusted the school with their care?
“Obviously everybody’s in a state of shock,” Ysleta Independent School District superintendent Xavier De La Torre said of the incident. Do you know why everyone is in a state of shock? We are in a state of shock that adults are allowing children to walk out of school at 11-years-old as if they have any idea about the intricacies of the gun control debate.
“What we’ve come to understand is that there are students out there that are very vocal, that are going to be our future leaders that are going to insist upon walking out,” De La Torre said. “And what we try to do is help them understand that they can still have a voice and that they can still have a presence and demonstrate their recognition and honor of some of the things that have happened in this country without leaving the premises.”
What has happened is that the liberal agenda, currently led by David Hogg and his classmates from Parkland, Florida, is using kids as props to push its anti-gun propaganda. These kids have no idea what they are protesting, but what they do know is that they get a free pass to walk out of school during school hours with no punishment so that Hogg and others can virtue signal how good they are. And so that Hogg and his sister can sell more copies of the book they are writing to cash in on the deaths of their fellow students.
This obsession with pushing the Democrat agenda, and using children who cannot possibly comprehend it as the props to do it, has led to the death of one of those kids. There is no other way to frame it. And yet CNN, Everytown For Gun Safety, David Hogg and his Parkland classmates have been silent on Jonathan Benko’s death. No thoughts and prayers, no condolences, not even a mention of his name.
They cannot mention his name because they know the bloody finger will be pointed at them. They know that his death will be an inconvenience for their agenda. How could they call for more school walkouts if parents know that this could happen? And what is truly sad is that their silence has exposed them as not caring about students who die, but about the agenda that is making them rich.
