I think it’s worth spending a few words on Covington, since the real root of the matter seems to be overlooked by a lot of people who I think ought to know better.
Originally, this was labeled by the Left, their trained seals in the media and yes, a lot of faux ‘conservative’ cucks as a hideous example of Trump inspired racism, with MAGA hats being the symbol of the new Nazi brown shirts.
Basically,what happened was this. Teenage students at the Covington Catholic High School in Kentucky decided to peacefully demonstrate in solidarity with the March For Life near the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C. They were approached by one Nathan Phillips, described by the media later as an ‘Indian tribe elder’ and a ‘Vietnam War veteran.’
The media’s story, led by the habitually fake news Buzzfeed, was that the kids went up to him, mocked him and insulted him racially. And Buzzfeed, the NRO and the rest of the media jackals were quick to pick up on a heavily doctored and edited video that supposedly showed this.
Of course, the real story was revealed later. Longer versions of the same video showed that it was the activist, and a nearby group of black supremacist activists, who harassed the students while they were waiting for their bus. The black group even hurled racial abuse at the students. You’ll notice, of course that the racist vile black supremacist group was left out of this story. The student’s response was to sing school songs to try to drown out the obscenities and remain calm.
The student shown smiling at a professional ‘activist’ who got in his face and started beating a drum while chanting some Indian gibberish was admirable in its restraint as far as I’m concerned
Even the so called creds of this Nathan Phillips turned out to be sheer BS. It turns out that this guy is simply a professional agitator who makes seems to have quite a history of confronting white students and then claiming he was assaulted by these ‘racists.’ He’s pulled this several times, and no real evidence to back up his stories has ever been found. In fact, he’s also something of a Catholic basher. Phillips led a rally that attempted to disrupt Mass at DC’s National Shrine on January 19th, just a few days before this happened.
He’s no ‘Vietnam War Veteran’ either. After one reporter at the WAPO shrieked in print ad nauseum about how these MAGA Nazi teenagers disrespected a war veteran, the WAPO had to fix it by admitting it was a blatant lie:
“Correction: Earlier versions of this story incorrectly said that Native American activist Nathan Phillips fought in the Vietnam War. Phillips served in the U.S. Marines from 1972 to 1976 but was never deployed to Vietnam.”
He also isn’t a tribal Elder as far as I can find out.
But of course, all this was too good to let a little thing like this get in the way. The media creeps piled on, to the point that the kids lives were actually threatened. The Twitter people, who have lied over and over again about their political bias and still mock us by claiming that they are taking great steps to eliminate violence, threats and things like harassment, and what they call ‘misinformation.’
Get a load of what ran on Twitter and is still up:
Have you ever seen a more punchable face than this kids?
I hope all these MAGA kids in the news get cancer and the horrible parents that raised them this way get to suffer alongside them- 🏴 Jez 🌻 Watson🌹 (@jezawatson) January 20, 2019
There’s lots more, but the above is stomach turning enough.
So here are a few things to take away from all this.
1) Commentators on the right have been vilified, lost jobs and been pushed off the net for far milder things than this and will continue to be. So this is a war with no rules. Women,families and children are not off limits. There are no standards anymore. The Left hates us, and wants us dead or in the gulags.
2) To the Left, any racist hatred against whites, Jews, Christians, women, children, Hispanics, Asians or blacks who fail to bow to the new order is legitimate, and any violence and retaliation directed at them is going to be excused.
3) A puppy will keep peeing on the floor if he is sees that there are no consequences for doing so. What we have here is exactly that…puppies who have learned they can pee on the floor with impunity and even bite people because there’s no downside for them, no cost to them whatsoever. If the Left’s behavior is going to change, they are going to need real punishment for this sort of thing until they realize that their violence, defamation and and attacks are going to merit similar treatment.
And yes, it has come to that, I’m afraid.
4) These children have been unjustly scarred for life. Their identities have become known, and they will never know if they weren’t refused college admission, scholarships, promotions, or a job simply because someone Googled their name and rejected them simply because the people making the decisions were on the Left or afraid to antagonize the Left.
And that was part of the reason this hideous assault on the Covington kids was planned and publicized as it was. It was to give them and everyone else a message. Oppose the Left in any way and you and your loved ones will be ruined for life. Brett Kavanaugh still needs to have private security on his home and his two daughters still need bodyguards in school, simply because some Hillary loving left Wing activist was wiling to lie under oath about a ‘sexual assault’ that never happened.
This, by the way, is what the Klan used to do to blacks who had the temerity to register to vote. They’d make life hell for them or even lynch them, which is exactly what the Left did here, using the media instead of a rope. With Democrats, some things never change, I suppose.
Because of our antiquated libel and slander laws, Kavanaugh was unable to sue the pants off this foul woman because he is a public person. But the Covington kids were neither public people or attempting to be public people. Their reaction to this should be to sue every company that collaborated in this attack on them and made them a target. For that matter, so should the Covington Catholic High School, which has been forced to remain closed for safety reasons.
Among other things, this was a violation of their First Amendment rights. Twitter, Buzzfeed and the National Review should be the first on the list to have their bank accounts drained, followed by the talking heads and celebrities who threatened these kids with violence. I can think of other things that could be done, but I’ll leave that to my reader’s imagination. Let the Left and their cuck allies see the price for this kind of attack on kids who neither merited it or deserved it.
5)Finally, the worst enemies we have now are not the Left, but the faux so-called ‘conservatives.’ Cucks like Bill Kristol, Hugh Hewitt (boy do I hate writing his name here, but so be it), Jen Ruben, Max Boot, the cucks at places like the NRO and the whole disgusting pile of never Trumpers. They all jumped on this likes flies on a fresh dog turd. You think they would at least have said ‘let’s wait a bit and see, this seems a bit manufactured. It’s Buzzfeed, you know, and after all…’
In reality, they very much wanted this to be true. That’s why they were so anxious to start virtue signaling and showing their friends on the Left that they hate what the Left hates….It’s their way of saying, ‘ I want you to really like me. Please keep hiring me to do spots on your networks, write for your newspapers, publish my books and keep inviting me to your parties, OK?’
And of course they lied blatantly (again) once the con was discovered to be just that. Like they didn’t know Buzzfeed is not to be trusted? Like didn’t know the Left pulls this stuff all the time? Please, spare me.
They’re rather like the Left wing Jews willing to swallow the Jew hatred and anti-Israel rants of their fellow Democrats just to wallow in the illusion that these people actually like them. And they are willing to ignore all the hard evidence they see that they’re really not liked at all except for the checks these Jews write and the verbal support and votes they are suicidally willing to cast.
The left, frankly, is quite open about its hatred of us. That’s a given, and they prove it every day. The danger of the people I’m talking about here is that even though they betrays us at every turn, they pretend to be our friend and allies. Who needs a bunch of quislings cucks and traitors as allies?
What happened to the Covington kids needs to be a wake up call to all of us. And it deserves a substantial response. The rules of the game the way the Left and their allies play it changed a long time ago.
It’s time we realized it and responded in kind. If we don’t, we have no one to blame for how this ends but ourselves. It’s time we started hitting back instead of simply being punched time after time.
