CNN's Covington Coverage Complicit in Covert Confabulation
Object of Leftist Media Slander, Nicholas Sandmann
At Least the Media Outlets of Nazi Germany had to be Threatened to Tell Lies
During the 12 year reign of the tyrant, Adolf Hitler, the press of Germany had to be threatened, bullied, and terrorized into submission. This is not the case with the banded arm of the left-wing-media in my own beloved country (the United States). Germany's news outlets of the 1930s-1940s were compelled by propaganda minister, the nefarious Dr. Joseph Goebbels, to slander and malign any who dared to step out of line with the "odious Nazi apparatus" so labeled by that great lover of freedom, Sir Winston Churchill. The media in America has needed no such coercive tactics to slander, smear, and besmirch innocent, albeit out-of-step conservatives. They do it for free. Like a prostitute who requires no payment for services rendered the liberal media performs its services for nothing; nothing perhaps except the satisfaction of insulting those with whom they disagree.
* Allow me a brief digression: I would like to take a moment to apologize to any prostitutes I may have offended by comparing them to leftist journalists.
The Story in a Nutshell
I think most readers already know the meat and potatoes of this story, but for those who do not- a brief re-cap:
A group of students from a Catholic high school in Kentucky, some sporting the popular "Make America Great Again" (MAGA) hats, journeyed over to D.C. to participate in the Right to Life March. While mulling about waiting for a bus, chatting and what not, a Native American man wandered into the student's group and began beating his drum, no I do not mean that metaphorically, he was literally beating a drum, to disrupt the student gathering. One student, in particular, Nicholas Sandmann, stood politely smiling at the drum beater. Photos and video were taken of the incident, then edited to make it appear as though the students had approached the Native American and were mocking him. "Super intelligent" ( Yes, the quotation marks mean what you think they mean) celebrities like Kathy Griffin, Chris Evans, and Ed Asner were quick to condemn an innocent 16-year-old kid. Alleged journalist and sissified metrosexual, Reza Aslan referred to Sandmann in a tweet; "have you ever seen a more punchable face?" Now, I think its safe to say that the only thing Aslan has ever punched was his mani/pedi punch card (10th one is free!) and yet here he is encouraging others to assault a minor. Think I'm exaggerating? Consider this: The school was on lock-down today due to the arrival of a "suspicious package." The school, as well as family members of the students, have received death threats from peace-loving, tolerant leftists at the behest of celebrities like Evans, Griffin, and Reza. I expect childish behavior from celebrities, but having it compounded by journalistic quotation sans vetting or investigation of facts is sickening, and more importantly, dangerous. For a succinct, reasoned, and accurate revelation of what really happened I encourage readers to view the video below which features commentary from boy wonder Ben Shapiro (no quotations marks-he really is a boy wonder!) along with the unedited version of the footage.
Coverage of What Really Happened
Conclusion: CNN Featuring Lies from the Alleged Victim
Nathan Phillips, the Native American man who intruded on the students, was interviewed shortly after the event on the Clinton News Network where he unequivocally lied about his military service. He said he fought in Vietnam. I take particular exception to this statement as I work with lots of Vietnam vets and have many who are friends. I love listening to them share their experiences, when they're willing to talk about them, during the war. Their courage, their valor and faithfulness cannot be overstated. Their love for this country, this country that spat on them when they came home from foreign soil, compelled them to stay, to go to work, to forgive the hippie generation that shunned and shamed them. Nathan Phillips is not one of them. In lying about his military service he dealt yet another painful blow to real vets by associating himself with them. He is not worthy of their title or their company. What a disgrace it is that people who call themselves journalists would facilitate a venue for lies at the expense of our most unappreciated heroes. Shame on them for that.
What can we conclude from these torrid facts? Simply this: Stop watching CNN, MSNBC, ABC, CBS and NBC news outlets. They are playing their viewers for chumps and you should be outraged about it. As Denzel Washington once said, "If you don't read the papers you're uninformed. If you do read the papers you're misinformed." I love the quote and I think we can extend its application from the written to the spoken word. My advice? Tune in to FOX News. It's the best shot we got when it comes to accuracy and truth telling.
