Fake News Coverage of the Confrontation at the Lincoln Memorial – What Really Happened?

Once more, for the Nth time, the lying international mainstream press has reaffirmed that they are without a doubt the enemy of the people.

Again, outlets like CNN, The Guardian, the New York Times, the Washington Post, the Huffington Post, Buzzfeed, The Daily Beast, and others have shown the American public and the people of the world that they have nothing but utter contempt for the truth.

Last Friday, following the anti-abortion March for Life procession in Washington D.C., students from Covington Catholic High School gathered outside of the Lincoln Memorial while waiting for school buses to pick them up to go home.

That’s when the trouble began.

The lying mainstream media’s narrative of the event went something like this. A large group overly aggressive, MAGA hat-wearing boys preemptively swarmed an innocent, elderly American-Indian activist by the name Nathan Phillips. A short video clip then showed what the lying mainstream press described as a teenage boy in a Make America Great Again hat staring-down Phillips as his buddies mocked the man in the background.

What ensued in the next few hours was nothing less than an orgy of hate which leftists and NeverTrumpers were more than happy to indulge themselves in. Media pundits and prominent public figures didn’t hesitate to call for violence against the boys.

Leftist Hollywood filmmaker Jack Morrisey expressed in a tweet that the MAGA hat-wearing boys should be killed, saying, “MAGAkids go screaming, hats first, into the woodchipper.”

Reza Aslan, a former CNN contributor, tweeted a picture of Nick Sandmann, the boy who stood up to Phillips, alongside text which read, “Have you ever seen a more punchable face than this kids.”

CNN’s Anna Navaro called the boys ‘racist’ and ‘ass wipes.’

Bakari Sellers, a CNN legal analyst, said that the boy should be punched in the face.

Maggy Haderman from the New York Times has suggested that these boys be expelled from school.

Disgraced Comedian Kathy Griffin also took to twitter saying, “Name these kids. I want NAMES. Shame them. If you think these f***ers would dox you in a heartbeat, think again.”

Meanwhile, Twitter, which claims to have an explicit policy of against encouraging violence, stood by silent. Apparently, as long as the encouragement of violence is directed at conservatives, it’s okay.A few days later, on Sunday, additional video footage of the incident surfaced which provided an entirely more accurate view of the events that occurred that day.

The new footage revealed that while the group of high school students waited for their bus near the Lincoln Memorial, they were confronted by a black supremacist group who call themselves the Black Hebrew Israelites. Members from this group yelled racial epithets at the group of high school students, calling them ‘crackers’ and ‘incest babies.’

To drown out the vitriolic filth spewing from the mouths of these ‘Black Hebrew Israelites,’ the MAGA hat-wearing the boys began performing loud high school sports chants. The chants weren’t directed at anyone, and nothing violent or aggressive was being said.

While this was happening, Nathan Philips, the now famous American-Indian, directly approached Nick Sandmann, got up in his face, and proceeded to bang his tom-tom drum inches away from Sandmann’s face.

It’s evident to any honest person who watches the video that Sandmann showed remarkable restraint. It’s also clear that he did absolutely nothing to provoke the actions to direct against him.

On Monday, Trump, in a tweet, extended his sympathy and support to Nick Sandmann and other Covington Catholic high school students.

Again on Tuesday, Trump took to Twitter and expanded on his thoughts concerning the fake news coverage of the incident. He wrote, Nick Sandmann and the students of Covington have become symbols of Fake News and how evil it can be. They have captivated the attention of the world, and I know they will use it for the good — maybe even to bring people together. It started unpleasant, but can end in a dream!”

Congressman Thomas Massie praised the boys in a tweet, “In the face of racist and homosexual slurs, the young boys refused to reciprocate or disrespect anyone.” He added that he was proud to be the representatives of these boys.

So, what can we take away from the corporate media’s latest attempt sell the people a pack of lies deliberately concocted to demonize a very particular demographic of people?

Well, it’s obvious that this was nothing short than a brazen attempt by to paint Catholic, Caucasian, MAGA hat-wearing students as evil racist bigots.

This story is also an indictment of the mainstream press. It is now clear that when the facts do not add up to support whatever liberal politicians and corporate press think they know to be true, the facts suddenly become irrelevant. Their false narrative is the only thing that matters.

Lastly, this story reaffirms what all honest and thinking people already know to be true. Namely, that the lying corporate press is an enemy of the people and needs to be abolished, and abolish it we will.
