i thought it was "the face when" because at first it was usually attached to memes of people looking frustrated, angry, rolling eyes etc. but i've never looked into it so that could just be something i assumed.

Laura Ingraham is such a lowlife. She mentioned on her show, and tweeted about it, that David Hogg was "whining"about not getting into four colleges. And she talked about his GPA.

His sister tweeted at her that it was low even for her, and she said coming from a 14 year old grow up. She's right. It's so unseemly and frankly disgusting-that so called adults are attacking teenagers over this. Even death threats. Under the circumstances , makes me sick.

Criticising these kids political positions and dept of knowledge is fair. Going after them personally, mocking their grades, accusing them of being crisis actors, etc. is past the red line.

They want to change laws that will impacts millions of people, so what they say is not immune to scrutiny. And I frankly think some of their rhetoric is over the top and incendiary itself. But adults should just let that go...these kids should not subject to personal attacks.

Mocking a 4.1 GPA is rich. Sounds like he was likely a top 10% student in his class.

Not that your performance in high school means anything at all.

Well I'd only contradict them if they were wrong!

A contrarian is someone who always opposes "popular" opinion simply for the sake of opposing popular opinion. If someone says "Trump should be impeached like Nixon", and you say "Nixon wasn't impeached", you're not being a contrarian. That's called being fact based.

Anyway, I had other things on my mind in "high school". Kicked into gear at uni though.

I think these kids are full of righteous anger, not rhetoric. If I had kids I'd be damn proud if my kids were like that.

They can spew their rhetoric all hours of the day and night. They are growing up in a world in which they have to live in fear of being shot at school. Every day, and on Sunday nights. I didn't grow up in that world, so who am I to tell them what they can and cannot say? As an adult old enough to be their parent, I have failed every one of those kids. I have, I feel I have and I know I have. We've messed things up for them, big time.
