Catholic Leaders Refuse to Retract Slander of School Boys at March for Life
A number of Catholic leaders and institutions who slandered a group of Catholic school boys after the annual March for Life remain silent after the boys were shown to be innocent.
A short video released on social media made it appear that a group of students from Covington Catholic High School could have accosted Native American activist Nathan Phillips, whereas more extensive footage from different angles made it clear that it was Mr. Phillips who approached the boys and began playing his drum directly in the face of one of them.
Videos show that the students were not propagating racist abuse, they were being victimized by it. One of the activists who confronted the group told them: “You white people go back to Europe where you came from! This is not your land!”
A lot of people have contributed to this post. I have lost track of all but Xanthippa, and Richard at this point but thank you all for your diligence and keeping track of this increasingly bizarre, yet revealing story.
I begin to think the less sense a viral story makes, the greater the importance at a level of abstraction that is perhaps, not being addressed.
Lets go back to first principles in terms of what makes a law work. Something that it’s becoming increasingly clear, the Islamic-leftist alliance did at the strategic level at least, some time ago.
In a democracy, a bunch of us decide what is not acceptable and then pass laws to make those unacceptable things clear, and then hire people on the public purse to make sure that those who engage in those practices are caught and force is applied to them. Those who are hired to use force on behalf of the state have limits, transparency and are themselves in theory, accountable to law.
In a democracy, certainly in the US, but generally in the West, that which is not expressly forbidden is allowed. The opposite of leftism and islamic cultures/law (after all, what is law other than the formal codification of a culture, right?) where all that is allowed is expressed and all else is forbidden generally.
Freedom of speech for example is a given. People may say what they want without fear of persecution by the state, is more than a cornerstone of democracy, its the entire foundation, basement windows, plaster and paint on the inside walls and a nice stucco finish for Western democracy because controlling the flow of information is controlling what decisions people make. Every tyrant’s dream. (You indexing this Google?)
The left of course has circumnavigated that right by passing selectively enforced “hate-speech” laws, where those law enforcement officers who’s job it was to protect your rights, now really are goons for the state to make sure you practice right-speech and right-think.
But that isn’t the major force for change in the West today, although it is one of them.
First principles teach us that whatever we do or want or believe can be overcome with sufficient force applied in just the right way.
So our system gets overwhelmed with muslims demanding we not speak truthfully about Islam in a way that makes it look bad to people who do not hold the values that slavery, rape, forced marriage, genocide, terrorism, and Islamic-supremacy uber-alles are good things.
They apply force to any publication or individual that can be identified, as an example to others who might speak out of turn, thereby in effect (which is all that matters to muslims and leftists at this stage) creating new laws. We are afraid to say what we know is true, because the consequences are real and negative. This applies to questioning global-warming with actual climate science, open borders, Islam, with actual islamic history and Scripture and so on and so on. I think the example of Charlie Hebdo is a good one as its the most spectacular. But there are literally tens of thousands of examples of people who have been negatively affected for saying true things about Islam or leftist sacred cows ranging from death, to attempted murder, Lars Hedigaard and Kurt Westergaard just for two, to being fired, ostracized or losing family connections ad friends.
Examples of this are quite frequent in the last seven days and in fact, I have wanted to write about this for a while now. But what happened to these kids is too good an example to let it sit any longer. That, and the Church’s seemingly bizarre reaction to it, if you do not understand how this pope intends to destroy the Church as it has been for a very, very long time now.
In fact his behaviour is 100% consistent with someone who is trying to undermine the authority, message, and dignity of the Vatican, in much the way it appeared that Obama was trying to do to the office of president. (Fortunately for America, his fans and supporters imputed so much dignity to his presidency that this one kind of damage did not succeed) Note that the Pope denied sanctuary to an actual Catholic Pakistani who was convicted on blasphemy of Islam charges while simultaneously demanding Europe destroy itself with islamic immigration.
But back to the central thesis:
For a decade or more now, I have watched as police have moved from enforcing the law, to trying to reduce the amount of violence and injuries in a given situation. An example might be where in I think it was Sweden, and this has to be 8 years ago minimum, a pro-Israel group of Jews and non-leftists had a permit for a peaceful demo with folk style music and so on, and a large group of Muslims and leftist came and presented such a threat that the police arrested (on a catch and release basis) the legal peaceful people in order to stop what looked like it could have been an awful and violent scene.
Now you have law enforcement acting as mitigators for the real law makers. Those with the willingness and capability using the most force to a purpose.
You cannot get a permit to do something involving drawings of Mohammad, or any other point where muslims have demonstrated a willingness to use force. And of course this will increase in terms of the scope of the demands as the population of muslims increases. One of the best examples in the past few days will be to see how fast Marks and Spencer changes the Aloe leaf on their toilet paper because ONE MUSLIM said it looked like the arabic symbol for ‘Allah’.
It is unlikely they won’t. Burger King changed their packaging for soft serve ice cream because their line drawing of a soft serve ice cream cone, looked like allah to one muslim. Sony changed an entire video game because one muslim felt the music in one part of it resembled something something blasphemy islamic.
Orban recognizes this and its why he simply will not let muslims into Hungary, because there is no way you can without losing sovereignty. Muslims believe in the use of any and all means possible, especially violence and ideally lethality, to be the law and only culture in a territory. Their ideology, their central dogma demands it. There is no denying this. Read the Koran and the most authoritative Hadiths, not to mention Reliance of the Traveler, a book written in English, for muslims outside of the officially Islamic world.
And so Muslims and Leftists will use force to make damn sure that no matter what is true, fair, just or honourable, people will be afraid to stand against them.
The number of people who know that the Catholic high school kids are the real victims of this event is predictable. Generally, the headline is a lie favouring a leftist or Islamic narrative. Then the correction comes out. No “Asian” cut the little girl’s head cloth, the whole thing was a hoax, right? But only a fraction of those that know about the initial event know the truth of it, and the policies that were desired will be enacted whether the event was true or not.
CNN is now claiming they were the victim of “information warfare” by someone in Brazil.
They are actually saying this on CNN.com
Polish Legislator Invites ‘Wrongfully Accused’ MAGA Boys to Address Parliament (breitbart, Jan 22, 2019)
“A Polish lawmaker has issued an invitation to students from Covington Catholic High School in Kentucky to address the Polish Parliament after they were falsely accused of mocking Native Americans following the March for Life in Washington, D.C.
“Dear Covington Catholic students, I’d like to invite you to the Polish Parliament. After watching this video, I am now standing up for these wrongfully accused young men and all of you!,” wrote Dominik Tarczy?ski, Conservative member of the Polish Parliament, and newly elected Vice President of the European Conservatives in Council of Europe, in a Jan. 20 Twitter post.
“You are very welcome to come and speak out what You believe in,” he added.
A short video released on social media this weekend made it appear that a group of students from Covington Catholic High School might have accosted Native American activist Nathan Phillips, whereas more extensive footage from different angles made it clear that it was Mr. Phillips who approached the boys and began playing his drum provocatively in the face of one of them.
Videos show that the students were not propagating racist abuse, they were being victimized by it. One of the activists who confronted the group told them: “You white people go back to Europe where you came from! This is not your land!”
In an interview Tuesday with LifeSiteNews, Mr. Tarczy?ski urged the boys to be “brave” in the face of the slander and threats being leveled against them.
“Dear American Friends — dear students — be brave as your President has been brave. Bravery is very important at this moment in time, for America and for the world. We need you. Be brave!” he said.
Pulling no punches, the Polish parliamentarian said the U.S. mainstream media had been guilty of “manipulation of the facts.”
“This is about honest reporting of basic facts. In my opinion—considering the whole situation—there are some members of the American Media that are engaged with full manipulation of the facts,” he said. “These students were harassed — they did nothing wrong — and yet, even now, so many are targeting them and blaming them.”
“It’s absolutely uncalled for, and unfair. This is why I thought it would be a good thing to have representation from the school, at the Polish Parliament, to have them as witnesses to this debate, fairly,” he said.
Mr. Tarczy?ski said he wanted to provide the boys with the chance to “witness to our experiences as Catholics thrown into the public sphere — about the role of Catholic Youth in public and political discourse throughout the world.”
“Frankly, I did this as an act of solidarity, of support — these young people need support, and their voices, unhindered,” he said.
When I saw these videos, “I found myself witnessing just terrible, terrible harassment and I felt they needed support,” Tarczy?ski said. “They need support now. You see this example isn’t only isolated to America. It isn’t just ‘American Catholics.’ It’s not even about Poland. This is about honest reporting of basic facts.”
“What the Left is trying to do — especially in Europe — is to force us to separate Faith from the State, to separate your actions at work from your beliefs,” he said.
“Those pushing this narrative cannot use a logical argument, so they try to push us aside and delegitimize our voices,” he said. “They try to restrict even our rights.”
In the case of Europe, the battle also touches on the question of Christian identity, Tarczy?ski said.
“This idea of ‘openness,’ ‘diversity’ and all this humanistic, secularist rhetoric — when you simply look at the history of our continent, the history of Europe it was logically based — built on Christian Faith and a culture derived from that Faith,” he said.”
This is the truly Christian response.
Bless brave Poland, the generous Polish people.
(I repeat: Teach your kids Polish or Hungarian or Hebrew; give them options for an uncertain future. I’m not kidding.)
Yes the Pope and the leftist political leaders of Western Nations are trying to destroy what is left of Western Civilization, which is based on the Judo-Christian principles spell out in the Bible. The left has worked long and hard at destroying the West and think that they can use Islam as a weapon to achieve their goal. In my opinion their pandering to the Islamic Invaders thinking that they can be controlled or destroyed after the West is destroyed is one of the biggest mistakes the left has ever made. History has shown that the only thing that can control Islam is raw, naked force and the left is busy destroying the people and institutions that can rally the people to use violence and lead them to use it effectively. We in the counter revolution are in most nations playing catch up to attempt to prevent the total destruction of their nations and culture.
What was done to the High School kids in DC over the weekend was evil, the purest form of evil because with malice aforethought the leftist activist and his media allies set out to destroy the lives and future of the kids and their families. We need to support the kids and those who are jumping into defend them, with luck the pro bono lawyer can get several scalps of the supposed journalists to give to the kids as trophies.
This attacks on those who love freedom are going to increase and turn more violent, the war between what is left of civilization and the barbarians of the left is going to go kinetic in the near future. Those who live in large cities need to have bug out bags packed and several bug out routes laid out. The time when they will be needed is rapidly approaching.\
Keep your musket clean, your powder dry and watch your back.

The Next Time Some Old Fool Bangs A War Drum In Your Face:
“Grin and Bear It! Smiling Facilitates Stress Recovery”
APS – Association for Psychological Science
“The next time you are stuck in traffic or are experiencing some other type of stress,” says Pressman, “you might try to hold your face in a smile for a moment. Not only will it help you ‘grin and bear it’ psychologically, but it might actually help your heart health as well!”
I think I read somewhere that a white man, reputed to have infinite wisdom, suggested turning the other cheek.
“I think I read somewhere that a white man, reputed to have infinite wisdom, suggested turning the other cheek.”
You might be surprised at the second layer of meaning in the phrase, “Turn the other cheek.”
An interesting interpretation (claiming to be accurate) was that:
By turning the other cheek you are inviting the transgressor to strike you with their other hand.
According to this explanation, a slave would be struck only with the left (i.e., sinister) hand. The right one being reserved strictly for family members.
Obliging the aggressor to strike you with the other hand forces them to treat you as kinfolk, thereby rubbing it in about how such punishment hurts the entire family of man.
Curiously, this approach works with Muslims as well. Causing them to strike you right-handed means that they have slapped a filthy kuffar with their eating hand and must then wash it until the skin comes off like a glove.
Any students of theology are cordially invited to add their take on this intriguing interpretation.
I don’t think Jesus was white.
Ezra Levant: Media Lynching of MAGA Catholic teenager backfires
This latest episode of media spasticity goes headlong through the looking glass into the realm of YJCMTSU.
The lies come so fast and furious now that it’s no longer just, “one god damned thing after another“.
All intermittency ceased long ago and what were once periodic outbursts from a gaggle of Democrat fringe elements has become an uninterrupted torrent of conniptions, tantrums, hissy fits, mewling inanity, smarmy Political Correctness, smug virtue signalling, and the sort of unselfconscious fussiness normally associated with terminal senility.

I’ve always enjoyed a latter-day version of that great leader’s thought:
Man is certainly stark mad; he cannot make a worm, yet he will make gods by the dozen.
— Michel de Montaigne
PS: Since you are quoting the illustrious one, I’ll presume that you’ve an interest in the years preceding his ventilation. Go with a series called, “The Master’s of Rome”, by author, Colleen McCullough (she of
Thorn Birds fameextreme moonbattery—as in: this is Europa we’re talking about).
Her’s is a meticulously researched yarn of historical fiction on par with Wolfe’s (pilot’s seat epic), “The Right Stuff”. The books cover Rome’s infant days and, especially, the lives, intrigues, and endless peccadilloes of those who ruled the Eternal City.
To be fair, this author’s personal archive of authentic ancient Latin documents constitutes the world’s largest privately held collection. This source of high-resolution background information gives each of the seven volumes a flavor and realism rarely seen in print.
If you enjoy the history of Rome itself, look no further than Steven Saylor’s superb tome, “Roma” (https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/75503.Roma).
It’s so typical of church ‘leadership’ that they are more interested in being friends with the atheist media who despise them, than their own people.
What’s beginning to take shape is the segmentation of society into bantustans. With luck, the clash will see wholly new cities emerge where Leftist thought will be criminalized and Mohammed’s followers “evacuated” to “better” places for them. History tells many stories of violence necessary to quell invasion and treason; we are in no superior place now for the righteous have let themselves be vilified by those who truly DO hate them for their righteousness.
To think there will be no fatal push back is to not know history.
Big Data’s Alliance with Big Media is a Threat to Free Speech
The convergence of internet monopolies and the media threaten democracy.
January 22, 2019
The media is dying. Read about it in the media.
Facebook is pumping $300 million into the media. And that’s after the Google News Initiative shoved $300 million into fighting “fake news” and helping struggling media outlets like the New York Times.
These aren’t investments. They’re charitable donations by Big Data to Big Brother.
Take Jeff Bezos taking $250 million, a little more than the $215 million he makes a day, and using it to buy the Washington Post, not because it’s a good business opportunity, but a good political one.
The media isn’t worth investing in.
TV and cable news are the weakest holdings of the entertainment giants. That’s why AT&T is none too fond of the CNN white elephant it’s stuck with.
John Stankey, Time Warner’s new boss (and therefore also CNN’s new overlord) told CNN that the news network has a “special social responsibility”. That’s the same rhetoric about public service that has the emerging giant monopolies subsidizing media companies as a charitable cause, not a profitable venture.
Vlad, Dan Bongino and Dan Greenfield are all saying (on the same day) “Journalism is dead”.
Worse, it’s a ZOMBIE !!
Soulless, living dead that’s the most lethal weapon – out to get us!
“Vlad, Dan Bongino and Dan Greenfield are all saying (on the same day) “Journalism is dead”.”
You had me at Covington. Everything about the MSM’s treatment of that one single event could not have undermined its collective credibility more, even if they tried (which they most certainly did).
This show trial in the public’s kangaroo court was contrived, orchestrated, and manipulated from start to finish. Far more importantly, Nathan Phillips was not in any way being “played” by the media. This lying, conniving, scheming, Leftist spooge-nozzle is an equally culpable conspirator and perpetrator in this deliberate crucifixion.
The Sandmann family’s own letter was an excellent response and, it is hoped, a beneficiary of prior legal review before release. Everyone caught in the eruption of this Krakatau-scale tripe volcano appears perfectly primed for a class action lawsuit of limitless proportions.
There are some very deep pockets involved in this media lynching and even the sternest Conservative judge’s awards will be little more than what these corporate fat cats can dig out from under the executive break room’s sofa cushions.
If there is one thing that stands out about this bizarre psychodrama, it’s not the outright lying or highly selective editing. It’s not the crystal clear anti-White bias. It’s not even the obvious lack of fact-checking that’s de rigueur whenever interviewing a celebrated media whore like Nathan Phillips.
IT’S THE SHEER BRAZENNESS THAT’S BEEN BAKED INTO EVERY CONFECTED LAYER OF THIS JOURNALISTIC ABORTION.
Ever since November 2016, the American Left has been throwing one endless foot-kicking, fist-pounding, hysterically yowlling, TTT (Titanic Temper Tantrum).
Covington is a carelessly misplaced punctuation mark in The Narrative™. It’s for Conservatives to proofread and highlight such reportorial codswallop.
Covington Catholic Chaperone: Our Boys Were “Targeted” For MAGA Hats, Christianity, the Right for Life and “Color of Their Skin” (VIDEO)
Jill Hamlin, a mother and chaperone for Covington Catholic High School, went on FOX and Friends on Tuesday morning to tell the real story of what happened to the high school boys at the March for Life last week in Washington DC.
Hamlin says the boys were targeted because of their faith, their pro-life stand, their support for President Trump and for the color of their skin.
FOX and Friends: You say the boys were targeted. Is part of the reason because they wore MAGA hats?

HE LIED: Native American Activist Nathan Phillips Never Served in Vietnam — But Raised Money By Saying He Did
The Washington Post has had to issue yet another retraction after falsely claiming that far-left Native American activist Nathan Phillips served in the Vietnam War. He didn’t — but this lie was previously used to help raise money for a documentary about his life.
On Monday, the Washington Post quietly issued a correction to their story about the activist, saying that while he served in the Marines, he was never deployed to Vietnam.

“Flower Child Fascism”
By William Norman Grigg – March 18, 1966
Excerpt Under Subtitle : Marxist Affiliate
To understand the purpose behind AIM’s creation, it is necessary to review some critical events of the late 1960s. In 1966, Fidel Castro convened the “Tricontinental Conference” in Havana, an assemblage of 513 delegates from 83 radical groups in the Third World; terrorism expert Claire Sterling observes, “The like of it had not been seen since the Bolshevik Revolution of 1917.” Under Castro’s sponsorship, the Terrorist International plotted its “global revolutionary strategy,” which was to include support for “democratic workers’ and students’ groups” in the United States….
