Apologies Roll In For Catholic School Protesters As Fuller Picture Of Events Emerges

DC: It was the hate crime of the century.

Or so some in the media appeared to think, judging by the condemnations and mass hysteria that followed initial footage of a group of Covington Catholic High School students — some of whom were wearing MAGA hats — supposedly harassing an older Native American man.

Except, what may have seemed to be one thing at first turned out to be something else altogether-

As details emerged, some individuals and outlets who had been quick to condemn the students retracted their words and even apologized.

National Review published a scathing piece by its deputy managing editor, Nicholas Frankovich.

The outlet pulled the article on Sunday and published an explanation by editor Rich Lowry.

“Anyway, if not a hoax, this at the very least was not what it initially seemed,” Lowry wrote. “I deleted my original tweet and we also took down a strongly worded post by my colleague Nick Frankovich that relied on the incomplete video. It’s another reminder — even for an old hand like me — that it’s best not to make snap judgments and to wait for all sides of a controversy to have a chance to be heard.” more here

SNIP: I’m sure the boys feel better now. Except for that whole Liberal lynch mob thing.

  1. Screw the media but what is unforgivable about this is the school and church throwing these kids under the bus before hearing their side. Why do Catholics in power feel they have to work so hard to appease the masses. There will never be another saint at this rate.

  2. Raise your hand if you saw “The Oxbow Incident” in 7th grade? Remember how appalled you were to think that innocent men could be hanged on the strength of hearsay? It was a powerful example of mob mentality and its potential (nay, it’s near probability) for violence — and getting it ALL wrong.

    Someone is not going to get the word of truth in time one of these days.


    Now important lesson like “The Oxbow Incident” have been replaced with Leftist instruction on how to get gender pronouns right.

  3. And what will the media say about the dirty scheme of Nathan Philips et al?
    What? No equal accountability?
    Not surprised.

  4. Social media is nothing more than a hotbed of aggrieved computer commandos in search of the next target du jour, so that’s to be expected.

    That “legitimate” print/TV media followed suit with boiler rooms full of itchy trigger fingers is the problem.

  5. “that it’s best not to make snap judgments and to wait for all sides of a controversy…” – why does everything have to be a controversy? Why is the MSM looking for controversy? Why are political candidates seeking points of difference and not unity?

    To sell papers, ad time, political views, agendas, harm others different from you, ignorance/stupidity, or just plain mean spirited outlooks on life?

    Sadly these young people (seemingly very good young people) were at the wrong place at the wrong time.

  6. Not on my Facebook post from yesterday. I haven’t looked yet this morning, but what I saw yesterday was two vocal groups: one advocating for the idea that there were conflicting points of view; and one advocating for ideological purity, i.e. Believe the Leftist Narrative.
    I take two things away from my post yesterday (not that they are new revelations):
    Parable of the Sower: some seeds are going to land among the rocks and never grow. But that parable is really meant for the disciples to realize that they are the sowers, and that their success will come not in trying to retrieve and replant the seeds among the rocks but to just focus on sowing more seeds.
    A Michael Crichton revelation: People assume you act the way they do. Leftists are filled with hate (even my so-called friends), and assume that your disagreeing with their narrative means that you hate them and everyone. The crucial thing is that this gives them the ‘right’ to hate you for simply disagreeing with them.

    Frankly it’s sad that I have to keep reminding myself of this! 🙂

  7. Poor MSM, caught again in half truths and unwarranted smears. They’ll never learn and I’ll never tire of seeing them embarrassed.

  8. On NBC “news” fb page I posted an article about this being a hoax. I got comments accusing me of being racist and posting biased links.
    I commented back a dozen LOL’s and told them thanks for the laugh that they actually think NBC is not biased.

    Sheeple will follow their masters.

  9. Anybody thinks American Indians aren’t racist needs to say yáʼátʼééh on the Hopi Reservation, and wait for the vitriol.
    Same with Lolamai on the Navajo reservation
    Most racist bastards I ever met.
    This Cliff Shitter should be glad he didn’t do that to a group of blacks, or he’d be shitting out pieces of that drum

  10. The lynch mob never hears about the retraction.

    You can be charged for a mob action in real life but if they ever apply those rules to the internet it is going to be a gamechanger.

  11. Further points out, you need the facts as offered from both sides, not just the perceived victims account, before making a declaration of wrongdoing.
    The old Winnebago should remember, everybody has a video camera now a days, before he spreads his despicable lies.
    Viet Nam vet, maybe, after Da Nang Dick Blumenthal’s lie, I don’t believe anybody until I see the DD-214. The NA already has been proven to speak with forked tongue.
    #MeToo, my big ol’ butt.

  12. It must have been the algorithm. Yeah- that’s it.
    Just how the msm news industry works. It is deceptive and criminal.
    And they used both the kid and the Indian, ruining both their lives.
    But it did work.

    The buzzfeed hoax is now off the table and being memory holed as this new scandal takes front stage.
    It is orchestrated. They pulled out the race card, dog-eared as it is. They always play the race card. Or the sex/gender card…

  13. I’m keeping a running count of how many of the VERY PUBLIC racists are losing their jobs. Even if the evidence later proves you “were lied to”, you calling for a racial lynching is still YOU screeching for a racial lynching.

    So far, I’m up to… Oh, wait. Never mind.

  14. @ Larry the Loser – you ignorant slut. WATCH the whole vid MORON they did disperse once after being verbally ABUSED.

    Watch @ 50:00 you douche and dickhead.

    “You can’t even stand in the sun”.

    What do you hate most?
    People wearing MAGA hats?
    White people wearing MAGA hats?
    White Catholic high schoolers wearing MAGA hats?
    Or yourself?

    Which is it?

    Eff off you POS.

    Yeah BRING it.



  15. Nah, Larry just wanted a few of those underage boys to disperse into his candy van.

  16. @ Larry the Leftist – the students actually SAT DOWN at one point in COUNTER PROTEST.

    I am going out on a freakin’ limb here, their actions were GANDHI-ESQUE if not MLK.

    Try paying attention would you? You sound like an self uniformed ASS.
