Covington Catholic High School student Nick Sandmann and his classmates have been attacked by everyone from respected journalists to B-, C- and D-list celebrities to the point that a neutral observer might think they’re gunning for a spot on the Supreme Court.




Conservative strategist Chris Barron told Fox News that this is actually “way worse” than the way Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh was treated.The shocking vitrol directed at the MAGA hat-wearing teens, before video evidence showed they were innocent of instigating the confrontation, has shown a disturbing willingness among some on the left to demonize even children, as long as they are seen as conservative.

“Not only was there a rush to judgment here, the initial story has been unquestionably debunked and yet some in the media and on the left still refuse to apologize for their initial attacks,” Barron said. “On top of everything else, we are talking about an attack on children. It’s so much worse than Kavanaugh and even more appalling.”
Appalling is a good word to described what happened to these Catholic teens.

I hope that they will get a invitation to visit the White House very soon.
President Trump is aware of what happened as he has tweeted about it.

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 off unpleasant, but can end in a dream!
 
These teens were politically persecuted by the media.

No they were not.. the teens were sent there by their religious wackjob parents and community to protest against women. They were political pawns long before the media knew they existed.

It's both.

That was at a different location.

I don't know if it was worse than Kavanaugh. I mean, you have to keep in mind that the House Judiciary committee is still likely to investigate Kavanaugh. The FBI ran a SIXTH investigation of Kavanaugh during the confirmation process. Kavanaugh had Democrats trotting out more and more liars every day to implicate Kavanaugh in freakier and freakier stuff.

Yeah, these kids got hammered unjustly but it was over pretty quickly.

I will tell you, however, that this tendency for the press to go scorched earth on any story that has an inkling of a possibility to embarrass Trump or any supporter of Trump, private citizen or not, is getting out of hand. They'e getting mighty close to doing with ink and airwaves what Hogdkinson couldn't do with guns and bullets.

"Protes against women"
VOMIT IN MOUTH.

Pro life is a position that has been held by the Catholic Church forever.
about half the babies aborted are female so I guess you could say they were marching in support of those women.

The Catholic Church is and always has been anti-Female.

They are- but certainly not becuase of their pro-life stance. You REALLy have to be a pandering liberal to call pro life ' anti-woman"

All I see is brainwashed women trying to force male beliefs on others.

I'm sure they'll appreciate your mansplaining it to them.

Hey they can do whatever they want with their own bodies, but trying to force their religious based morality on others is a big no no.

I’m not going to get deep into the details of what happened, except to offer what I think is a brief and fair summary of the events. The students, who were in town for a march to oppose women’s reproductive rights and many of whom were wearing “Make America Great Again” hats to proclaim their devotion to President Trump, were on the steps for a long period of time, during which they were yelled at by fewer than a half dozen Black Israelites, a small but noisy cult that most people have the sense to just walk past as they perform their belligerent street preaching. During that time there were periods of relative calm and periods when the boys got extremely rowdy, shouting and chanting. As Phillips has explained in interviews, he thought the situation was getting out of control and sought to interpose himself between the two groups. Videos show the boys all around him in a state of extreme excitement, sometimes chanting, laughing and doing tomahawk chops. One boy in particular stands very close before Phillips, unmoving and with either a friendly smile or a rancid smirk on his face, depending on your interpretation.

But here’s the important point: The right, and President Trump, are overjoyed that this has become such a big deal. That’s because this story slots in so perfectly with the same metanarrative they’ve been feeding their constituencies for years. It says that white people, men and Christians are the only remaining victims of racial discrimination; that when liberals attempt to call out what appear to be racist incidents, in fact they are lying to oppress conservatives; that the media is also out to get conservatives and will purposely lie to do it; and that this is all part of a broad effort to destroy everything that is good about American society and replace it with a new system in which white Christians will become a permanent underclass.


[continues beyond fair use limit; echoes things many here have pointed out. (1) Fox is a main seller of the victimhood narrative, (2) there is a general conservative media structure that was created to maintain this narrative at all opportunities, (3) perpetual agitation, hence voter turnout, is the goal, (4) the same game was played with Kavanaugh. In a sane universe, the question would be what standard of evidence do we want to use if we deny someone a nomination? Instead, it was spun as evil conspiracy and RW victimhood]

Yup. He's right. After all, Rush Limbaugh fed this to people before they came here to repeat it:




The only innocent people on Saturday morning in Washington were the kids from Covington who end up being blasphemed and impugned and destroyed all over America! And they’re the total, full-fledged innocent ones! They didn’t do anything! Except show up at a rally for life wearing their “Make America Great Again” hats. They’re from a Catholic school; so they had everything going against them. They’re white, they’re teenagers, they’re wearing Trump hats, and they are Catholics. They believe in Jesus Christ. They are the enemy. They have to be destroyed.

You guys really need to drop the fake victimhood routine. A bunch of people behaved poorly in those vidoes. The kids were one of multiple groups that behaved poorly. Enough with your fake victimhood narrative.

Appalling is a good word to described what happened to these Catholic teens.

We are seeing an alarming rise of ungodliness in American public life more and more in recent times. Unsaved degenerates do not give others the benefit of the doubt. They rush to judgment and condemnation before they even know the facts. Jesus did not teach this kind of treatment of others. In fact, Jesus condemned that sort of wicked irresponsible judgment and condemnation of others for unjust reasons. America is losing is status and reputation as a Christian nation and is quickly degenerating into a godless nation run by tribal barbarian savages.
