Kyle Kashuv is a survivor of the 2018 Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting in Parkland, Florida, where 17 students were gunned down.
But unlike David Hogg, a fellow student at the high school, Kashuv didn’t use the tragedy to advocate for more gun control laws. Instead, he publicly and prominently defended gun rights.
Which put a big political target on his back.
As such, the left began sifting through Kashuv’s old Twitter posts from years earlier. And lo and behold, they found some that included immature and inappropriate racial references from when the kid was 16 years old.
The tweets were made public this week.
And Kashuv’s admission to Harvard was rescinded shortly thereafter.
If you’re thinking of running for public office in 2020, NOW is the time to start going back through all your old social media posts – especially Twitter and Facebook – and deleting ANYTHING that could possibly be used against you in a campaign.
As the old saying goes: “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.”
And it should go without saying that now would be a good time for YOU to be going through your OPPONENT’S social media sites and looking at all their old posts.
You never know what you might find.
