David Hogg exposed trying to extort a Florida grocery store

Parkland survivor and full-time bully David Hogg is trying to shake down Florida grocery store Publix.

In a tweet, the gun-control mouthpiece is demanding $1 million from the Florida-based grocery chain.

Publix is being harassed by David Hogg for its support of Adam Putnam, a Republican gubernatorial candidate who is the state’s agricultural commissioner. The Tampa Bay Times reported just this week that Publix had donated $670,000 during the last three years to Putnam campaigns.

“I call on @Publix to donate double the money they gave to Putman [sic] to the Stoneman Douglas Victims fund, $1,000,000. And never support an A-rated NRA politician again,” he wrote.

The demand came a day after  Hogg called for disruptive demonstrations Friday at all Publix stores, one of the biggest chains in the Southeast and especially Florida, where it is the largest private employer.

“@Publix is a #NRASellOut,” he tweeted. “In Parkland we will have a die in the Friday (the 25th) before memorial day weekend. Starting at 4pm for 12 min inside our 2 Publix stores. Just go an lie down starting at 4. Feel free to die in with us at as many other @Publix as possible.”

When the Florida grocery store was asked by the Tampa Bay Times about its support for Mr. Putnam, a Publix spokesman they said:

“As the hometown candidate, Publix has had a long-standing relationship with Commissioner Putnam,” spokesman Brian West said. “We support pro-business candidates, and believe Commissioner Putnam will make a great governor.”

We all know how this will play out if they don’t respond to his demands he will no doubt push for a boycott.

And it begins.
