Why lefties attacked Nick Sandmann

Nick Sandmann and his classmates went to Washington to exercise their First Amendment right to peaceably assemble against abortion -- as well as have an adventure. He is a student at Covington Catholic High in Park Hills, Kentucky, in suburban Cincinnati.

Waiting for their bus after visiting the Lincoln Memorial, the group was taunted by a group of black nationalists who shouted, "Go back to Europe."



Then this Indian fellow started approaching them while banging on his drum. Sensing trouble, Sandmann stepped in and smiled.

That's all he did.

He smiled.

He faced danger from Nathan Phillips who confronted these boys in order to get a cheap headline.

Sandmann stood tall and smiled.

The left could not stand it.

The left had a meltdown.

The left unleashed hell, attacking him, threatening his classmates, and condemning him.

Even his church and his school would abandon him.

But I urge anyone to be like Nick Sandmann if they ever wind up in one of these eighth dimension hellholes the media puts people in.

His smile became the "smirk" that dominated the news for several news cycles.

Never mind all the murders in Washington. Never mind the robberies. Never mind trade talks with Red China. A kid in a MAGA cap smiled. Off with his head!

Condemning the boy became a  national pastime. Joe Scarborough, Alyssa Milano, Debra Messing, and National Review tweeted and published their self-righteous anger at a 16-year-old boy who dared to smile when a bitter old racist approached him. These bullies of a boy have miserable lives, don't they?

And his would-be tormentor is a racist.

Change the colors around. Make the chant "Go back to Africa" from real KKK members who vote Democrat and hate Catholics. Now dare call under that scenario a smiling young man a black privileged smirker.

Caitlin Flanagan of Atlantic Monthly described well the situation, "The full video reveals that there was indeed a Native American gathering at the Lincoln Memorial, that it took place shortly before the events of the viral video, and that during it the indigenous people had been the subject of a hideous tirade of racist insults and fantasies. But the white students weren’t the people hurling this garbage at them — the young 'African American men preaching about the Bible and oppression' were doing it. For they were Black Hebrew Israelites, a tiny sect of people who believe they are the direct descendants of the 12 tribes of Israel, and whose beliefs on a variety of social issues make Mike Pence look like Ram Dass.

"The full video reveals that these kids had wandered into a Tom Wolfe novel and had no idea how to get out of it."

Nick Sandmann did what Jesus would do. He turned the other cheek and smiled. Maybe he delighted in watching this old buzzard try to provoke him. Maybe he was frightened by what the old man could do. Maybe he wondered if someone was putting him on. But Sandmann would not be moved. He remained true to himself and his religion.

He became a man at the memorial. Gillette should hire him as a spokesman for its campaign against toxic masculinity because he showed restraint when a stranger got in his face.

Flanagan's original headline was, "The Media Must Learn From the Covington Catholic Story," but it was changed to "The Media Botched the Covington Catholic Story," which is more accurate because the only lesson the media wants to learn is how to attack and stigmatize young white men and be successful.

Many reporters and pundits still sting from the Duke lacrosse tragedy in which the media insisted 46 players on that team gang-raped a black stripper even after DNA evidence exonerated the men.

Make no mistake, the attack on Nick Sandmann came from anti-male, anti-Catholic creeps who want to turn America into a third-world spit hole. They saw his smile as weak. His smile gave him the strength of Samson.

Lefties attack The Church for the same reason Romans attacked The Church; Christianity offers hope and liberates the tortured soul from the bounds of this Earth. The Church has its flaws but its message is what the Left fears most because a people who have God don't need government.

As I watch these media these days, I finally know why they call the Devil the Lord of Lies.

    Worse than the group hollering at him calling him and his friends "incest babies" and worse.

    1. Yep. Racism is racism, and it doesn't matter the color.

    2. This is a heartbreaking situation. Those boys are going to have a long road ahead of them. They will have to tolerate being stared at and jeered at i(or worse) n public places, continued social media assault, college entrance people declining their application for fear of students uprising against these poor boys or because the admissions person doesn’t want conservative kids there. My daughter was caught up in a smaller, local situation very much like this and was offered no support from her school. We had to pull her for her personal safety in her Jr. year of high school. She endured a living hell for the last 12 months. She suffers from PTSD and has had to leave for college early to start over. Even when she drives into town for the weekend she wants to leave soon after arriving because of the stress and anxiety. Thank God for a strong family and a few very close friends. I was so naive about the level of cruelty some people have in their hearts. I do pray for these boys and their family as I know what is to come and it’s’ far worse than we endured.

  2. Sad that some of the anti-Catholic creeps were themselves Catholic - the heads of his school and their religious leaders. Shameful.

  3. Banging a loud drum just a few inches from a stranger's ears is assault. I trust legal counsel will be engaged.

    And where were the chaperones? Why didn't they step in between them. Regardless the young man showed remarkable restraint despite his personal space being violated.

    1. The chaperones knew they could trust Nick to do right and be right. They had other kids less mature to watch and protect.
      GOD, bless Nick and all those young men who stood tall for you.

  4. The first thing I thought when I heard the full story was he was turning the other cheek.

    He may be 14, but he's a man.

    1. I agree. His smile says "this is all kind of weird but I'm not backing down." Anyone who calls that a smirk is lying or projecting.

  5. White people need to begin to understand that it is not ok to allow racial solidarity in in every other race but their own. This business of saying that racism is wrong in all cases is both empty virtue signaling and something that only white people really believe. Preference for one's own race is a strong biological trait. It can be tested for in the laboratory. It is a fact. Like many other traits it can be overcome situationally or by conditioning. And in our society what conditioning that has been done has been directed at whites and whites only. Everyone else has been taught-- conditioned -- to believe that they are victims.

    You can't win a game where the cards are stacked against you and you have been conditioned to make all the wrong moves.

    If you are going to survive you need to overcome the conditioning. Asking other people who have not been subjected to it for decades and expect them to suddenly be color blind and cultural blank slates is not going to happen overnight, or maybe even never.

    Overcoming that conditioning can be difficult. Look at how many conservatives jumped to the same conclusions as the left about this recent event, and many, many others in the past.

    The trick, as Don has pointed out, is to withold judgement, and not offer it when asked JUST LIKE DEMOCRATS DO when one of their people seems to have done something out of line. You give the benefit of the doubt to people who look like you and refrain from condemning them, because in condemning them you are implicitly allowing the opposition to condemn you, because blood libels are ok against white people.

    I say this as someone who has been raised to love people outside my own race. I lived in Africa with missionaries who got real results. I married outside my race. I spend more social time in the absence of white people than I do with them. These experiences have allowed me to see how people act in their most unguarded moments and how things work outside media conditioning.

    If you keep playing the game by rules the other side makes for you things will turn out ugly.

    The reason that kid was excoriated the way he was is because he wasn't playing by their rules. It drove them batshit crazy. We need more of that, and not simply for racial reasons. We need it because it takes away a major part of their strategy.

    1. Birds of a feather......

      Designed, Created and Maitained as Designed.

      To change the Design is to oppose the Designer.

      To change one's self is to participate in the Design.

      Be as body as Designed or be as Soul.


      Pick one.

  7. Another zinger post today, Don. And the last few paragraphs-- "...why they call the Devil the Lord of Lies."

    Back when Hillary was running for President, I happened to do a Bible Concordance review of the words "lie", "lies", "lying", etc. (Used a King James version-- not sure the modern versions would be as clear). It was very startling to see how many and how strong the Bible statements on "lying" were. We tend to think of lying as a "lesser" or more innocent-type of fault, to brush it off a bit, but that is not what the Bible had to say. It opened my eyes to lying being a much more serious practice, something fundamentally cooperative with evil. Am thinking maybe I should do that again.

    And what is this with the Left calling Donald Trump a rampant liar? How can a man that "has no filter", and that is known for his total candor-- he speaks his mind, he calls a spade a spade, he says out loud what many other people are thinking-- how can that be twisted into being "a liar"???

    1. Actually-- just answered my own question-- (or one answer to it, maybe)-- it's because Donald Trump speaks the Truth, that they hate him so much. The truth is so dangerous to a lie. And the sheer twistedness to call someone who speaks Truth, a Liar. Geesh.

  8. The demons are loose among us, evidently we Christians and any sane person must be destroyed even the children.

  9. Black Hebrew Israelites, a tiny sect of people who *claim* they are the direct descendants of the 12 tribes of Israel. FIFY.

  10. Being a not well known Paranoid, I believe what is happening here is to trash Catholics in particular and religion in general, for a reason.

    Amy Barret (hope I got her name right, lol) as a replacement for SC Justice RBG who is no doubt, room temp and has been for some time.

    Amy appears to be the leading contender and is really a Catholic. Attempts to degrade Christ and the religion are legion in congress now even ending with an official rebuke in the Senate.

    This is why Nan Palsy canxed the SOU as she would need to show up and the Cabal is keeping her death under raps for now. Once they reveal her death, the Dem plan is likely as follows below. They HAVE gamed this out. No doubt about it.

    Immediate call for impeachment investigations to proceed.

    Quick house vote to do above, which passes.

    Statements made that the POTUS cannot nominate a SC Justice while being investigated for impeachment.

    Hoping to stretch the impeach investigation until 2020 so they can invoke the Biden rule; no SC Justices confirmed during last year in office by POTUS.

    The only questions will be, how does DJT and the Turtle handle this?

    1. I'd also like to add, Trump is messing with the timing of the #SOTU so a sudden funeral announcement doesn't get in the way.

      YMMV (your mileage may vary)

    2. Interesting theory but they're gambling with the Catholic vote and that's a lot of people.

  11. Sorry Don, I think you're wrong here:
    "Sensing trouble, Sandmann stepped in and smiled."
    My view of the video that shows Phillips moving, has Sandmann a couple of steps up, identifiable due to his silver vest, while other guys sort of get out of the way. Sandmann is standing in place, and continues to stand in place as Phillips steps up so as to assault him with his drumming. Not stepping in; and especially not backing away when softly assaulted.
    Not backing down.
    Like Trump doesn't back down, when "softly assaulted".
    The Dems hate that Sandmann didn't back down.

    I'm glad he stood his ground.
    (But he didn't step in to start it; he merely stood his ground and Phillips assaulted him.)

    1. That's exactly right: Sandmann didn't move, so "stepped in" isn't correct. He stood his ground as a man should, and didn't back away even though he was threatened.

      Later in the piece Don says, "He became a man at the memorial. Gillette should hire him as a spokesman for its campaign against toxic masculinity..." He became a man all right, but that's real masculinity which isn't toxic, and Jillette wouldn't want him; he's a real man, not a soyboy pretending to be one.

      Mr. Sandmann is a courageous man, even though he is still a youth; I commend him and urge others to emulate him!
