Some facts and brief commentary I put together on this event:
Bravo for the young man. You can clearly see his dignity, integrity and intelligence in that statement. He also did not run from “racist,” which is a big deal as the country moves forward. He was, no doubt, well advised by the adults in his life.
As to adults in his life who have failed, this is the statement posted by the Diocese of Covington and Covington Catholic High School:
The school and diocese should have taken an uncompromising stance protecting their students. Instead, they threw them under the bus. This blog’s regular commenter Suburban_elk nails it:
That’s what is unforgivable. I don’t know how long the “full length video” has been out and about, but even w/o that full length video, it’s cowardly and despicable for the school administration to side against their own students.
At some point those people have to be called on their COWARDICE.
Daily Stormer has doxed the administration, and they will get some online heat. But more needs to happen.
The students themselves might make a show of solidarity, and not boycott their school. This would clearly be an effective move, on their part.
I am not “up” on the story and its details, but that’s a UMC Catholic school with tuition?
The administrators at that school are charged with a responsibility and given a lot of status for their positions.
They are in a shitstorm now. Ffs imagine how angry some of the more upstanding parents are; or at least we can hope.
I checked out a number of the twitter threads from the leftist accounts, and how they just stick their heads in the sand and refuse to acknowledge their mistake, is something to behold.
Nathan Phillips, the American Indian who aggressively entered the underage minor’s personal space in a way that could be perceived as aggravated assault, has a history of radical left wing activism.
The most ignominious antagonist in this story is the serpent National Review, which published an article comparing the Covington High School student to Christ’s killers. They promptly took that article down, but not before it was archived.
As others said, President Trump should invite the young men from Covington Catholic to the White House. In fact, that’s what he should do for any for any of his supporters who suffer from the violence of the media and the mobs they sic on honorable Americans.
