    Rep. Thomas Massie Stands Up for Covington Catholic Students

    Exclusive Interview: Rep. Thomas Massie Stands Up for Covington Catholic Students
    By Peter D'Abrosca - Jan 21, 2019

    In an exclusive interview with Big League Politics, Rep. Thomas Massie (R-Ky.) defended the students of Covington Catholic High School who were unfairly smeared by the mainstream press and subsequently attacked by the political left on social media.

    “These kids got a lesson in social media mobs,” Massie said, “and the mob that forms in social media forms quickly, and it is there to bully anybody from saying what they really think and what they believe, particularly if it’s a conservative viewpoint.”

    Several boys from Covington Catholic became the object of press and social media scorn after video clips emerged of their interaction with a Native American man named Nathan Phillips last Friday at the March for Life in Washington D.C. Shortened clips showed Nick Sandmann, a student at the school who was wearing a #MAGA hat, smirking at Phillips as Phillips beat his drum in Sandmann’s face. The press narrative, which has now been thoroughly debunked as full videos of the interaction have emerged, was that the students were bullying Phillips. In reality, Phillips and a few other Native men approached the boys first, in a clear attempt at provocation.

    “The social media mob is a left-wing mob.” Massie said, “The right does not do this. It’s considered harassment if it comes from the right, and if it comes from the left, it’s just free speech – and there’s your double standard.”

    Massie also admonished the left for moving their social media efforts into the real world, attempting to destroy the personal lives of the objects of their ridicule.

    “What happens with the left, though, is they cross over into reality,” he said. “They migrate off of social media and they start calling the city of Covington to get tax records and figure out where people live. They go to their houses, and figure out where they work, and try and get the parents fired. That’s the difference. I mean, we all know Twitter’s a dumpster fire, but they try and take that fire and spread it into real life. That’s what this is. This is bullying.”

    Massie said that a prosecutor in northern Kentucky named Rob Sanders has already publicly warned the political left that it is against Kentucky law to threaten schools, and that there will be prosecutions for such actions. He described Sanders’ efforts in pushing back against the hate-filled mob as “admirable.”

    Massie, who reserved judgment about the students until all of the facts came to light, also cautioned against jumping to conclusions when the mainstream press makes these types of accusations.

    “It’s almost like this was a big psychology experiment – like freshman psychology 101,” he said. “You were told, before you saw the video, what you were watching so that when you watched the video, you completely fell for it.

    Its unfortunate the Manipulated Stream Media made this event such a national focus in CNN/MSNBC's quest for their own PC virtue signaling. After watching multiple videos, it is readily apparent that CNN, MSNBC lied, and that Nathan Phillips is a lying, disrespectful, cowardly fool.

    The self labelled “Black Hebrew Israelites” portrayed themselves are imbecilic fanatical nutcases, and that’s putting it gently. Seriously, they acted like they came straight out of the psycho ward for lunatic zealots.

    From the videos, a group that calls themselves the “Black Hebrew Israelites” were harassing the Native Americans with such taunts as:
    You[‘re] not supposed to worship eagles, buffalos, rams, all types of animals! This is the reason the Lord took away your land!

    You think there’s Uncle Tom? You’re an Uncle Tomahawk. You got your head up the white man’s ass! You say peace? There ain’t gonna be no peace!

    "$5 Indian"

    When a native American woman refuted the “Black Hebrew Israelite” lunatics [BTW never try to reason with a lunatic] they respond to her with such rationale dialogue as,
    This is the problem, Israel; it’s always our women coming up with they loud mouth…thinking they can come and distract things with they loud-ass mouth, cause they not used to dealing with no real men.

    When a black individual refuted the Black Hebrew lunatics, they respond with,
    You got all these racist bastards — you ******! you ******! — all these crackers with these racist-ass Make America Great Again hats on, and you want to get violent with us? Get your Uncle Tom ass out of here!

    To the catholic boys waiting at their designated bus pickup spot, the Black Hebrew lunatics direct such harassment as,
    You little dirty-ass crackers, your day coming!”
    “Dusty-ass animals!”
    “Bunch of child-molesting fa***ts!”
    “dogs”
    “hyenas.”
    "dirty ass crackers"
    "can't stand in the damn sun for more than five minutes"
    "incest kids"
    “only whites shoot up schools” … “look like they [sic] about to shoot up a school right now!”
    "You are the product of inces
    t"
    "You give fa***ts rights."

    The Black Hebrew Israelites targeted a black student saying, calling him a "n****r" and saying his friends would murder him and "harvest his organs."

    Throughout all of this the boys do not respond in kind. They keep their composure, remain polite. Those who had initially listened to the Black Hebrew Israelite lunatics walked away. They did positive school sports cheers to drown out the vitriolic hate form the "Black Hebrew Israelites", and laugh it off, never responding in kind and never escalating. They should be commended for such stoic virtue.

    Nathan Phillips, rather than confront the Black Hebrew Israelites who were harassing both the native Americans and the Catholic boys, (probably assessing the Black Hebrew Israelites may respond with violence), instead decided to join in the harassment of the teenage Catholic boys, whom he correctly assessed were harmless.

    The multiple videos show Nathan Phillips plowed right into the center of the group of boys - very disrespectful and and rude by any measure. The boys rolled with it and joined in with the chants. Nathan Phillips proceeded right up into the face of one boy , invading his personal space, and proceeded to pound his drum at head level right in the face of the kid. Rather then respond in violence or taunts the boy just stoically stood there smiling.

    Afterwards Nathan Phillips went on television and outright lied about the events calling the boys beastly,
    These young men were beastly and these old black individuals was their prey, and I stood in between them and so they needed their pounds of flesh and they were looking at me for that.

    The fake news liars CNN and MSNBC failed to conduct any remote semblance of a proper journalistic investigating before launching their front page broadcasts nationwide smear campaign of completely defamatory attacks against the teenage boys. CNN and MSNBC were more concerned about being able to virtue signal how leftist PC they are rather than reporting truth, or adhering to any code of journalistic ethic. CNN and MSNBC ignited the spark, piled on the fuel, and fanned the flames to whip up a leftist NPC hate mob spanning across the entire nation to target the boys with online bullying, harassment, intimidation, doxing, threats of violence, and death threats.

    CNN and MSNBC should be held fully accountable civilly for all the damages they caused these boys and their families and school due CNN/MSNBC’s gross negligence, incompetence, defamation and intentional incitement of NPC mob harassment campaign against the boys.

    These online threats and harassment against the minors have also been given the seal of approval by Twitter, Facebook, Google and YouTube despite banning conservative, libertarian or antiwar posters for far, far less.

    At about 4 minutes in Schiff states emphatically that the left sees the Hitler Youth
    when they see the MAGA hat, in my view this aspect of his take and something
    that seems to be spreading to some degree, is not in fact what anyone actually
    sees.
    As if it is some kind of actual phobia of snakes , spiders , nope, this is just a liberal meme that
    caught on , and it's chicken little, Armageddon, end of earth, because of MAGA,
    the reality is that the left is not getting their way, they hate not having Globalist
    Hillary in office.
    They have been throwing tantrums since the last day of the election, they act as spoiled
    children burning anything that Trump Built, their meme is a false narrative , just
    like the stories or fabrications that are put out by MMM.
    I say this because this meme legitimizes to a degree the hatred that liberals have
    toward Trump and Conservatives in general, they want free stuff for everyone,
    they want socialism , they think a woman in the White House is going to make the
    world a soft comfy place, little do they know that they are wishing the moral and economic
    collapse of America.
    Alright , lets get back to Peter Schiff, he is making some great points.

    One thing I have learned is that if someone wears a MAGA hat, they may as well wear a klansmen's hood or a swastika. That is no exaggeration. This is what is causing the loss of emotional control in progressives. Some of them are that brainwashed.

    Yes, even my own son thinks a MAGA hat is a label for 'racist.' I think its one of the symptoms of TDS.

    My contention is that they are using anything as an excuse to hate Trump,
    no one has ever come up with a legitimate item to label Trump or his
    policies as racist, they just want to get their way, they want him out
    and a liberal in. Calling someone racist today is nothing more than
    a tool.

    This is a severe split coming to our country. Pulling the race card used to end an argument or even a career. Now we have too sides forming. One side the R card means nothing because it has been over used for the past 30 years. The other side is pissed because their Trump card (no pun intended) no longer works.

    If people really valued Freedom, they would ALL come to the defense of anyone who is trying to express their opinion in a non violent and respectful way. But they dont, and those same people do not actually value Freedom. They are almost all taught that the only solution is to Cookie Cutter everyone, and fear hate and despite anyone who is not exactly like them. The more different people are from each other, the stronger they feel about rejecting that person.

    A Real Libertarian would defend the thing said they do not agree with, because that person has a Right to say it.

    What is happening on both sides is basically a Schism. Its taken on Religious proportions. "If you are not just like me, then you are the enemy". Thus, its no longer cumulative major differences that cause fights, its the little ones, and Politics is Little. We have zero choice of who our parents are. We had zero choice to be taught to think in school, or to be taught to worship govt like a God. What we do have a choice in is the way we treat others, and what we think. Do we support the expression of different opinions, or do we not? Do we make every effort to hold the High Criminals accountable for their crimes, or do we not? That same statement applies to the people in Law Enforcement as well. Will we forgive the kid for being out 5 minutes after curfew or do we not? Do we make efforts to remove the Thieves in office from power or do we let them stay in power and invite more of their criminal friends to steal whats left from the 99%?

    And let’s be real. The number one motivation for wearing a MAGA hat is to troll the leftists (with the exception of a Trump rally or GOP event). On the other side of the coin, it’s similar to a leftist wearing a Che Guevara or communist theme shirt. All about trolling.

    Maybe now, but I don't think those Catholic boys were trolling. I think they were just prolifers supporting a president.

    Not true.
    For most of us, the MAGA Hat is a rallying icon, a show of support to Pres Trump, a theme that
    that signifies a love of country and culture.
    Hate for the hat is just an extension of the noose or net that liberals cast, a shotgun blast hoping
    to hit anything , another of many ploys to get us all to genuflect
    to liberals and adopt their pc terms, appease them, bow to every demand.
    Liberals hate conservatism and capitalism, and all that support it, liberals are extremely
    handicapped in debate, they don't understand issues, they have no tools other than physical attacks,
    boycotts, and hatred toward opposition, eventually they discovered the 'Hat' as a focal point
    that they could use to shut up and bully conservatives, that was long after they had already been
    attacking Trump supporters.
    If you watch that clip, its obvious that any of those young boys wearing the
    MAGA hat were not trying to pick battles with anyone.
    I will give one accolade to liberals, though it stems from their desperation;
    they are 'inventive' .
    You mentioned the Che shirt, people just laugh at those people, they don't kick
    them out of restaurants , and beat them in the head for wearing the shirt,
    we could easily view them or tag' them as racists and genocidal socialists,
    but those are the tools of liberals, not conservatives.

    Lessons from Covington Catholic flap

    a picture of a high school kid supposedly harassing an old Indian guy beating a drum was, "Why is this image newsworthy?" The image was newsworthy because the left shapes the news.

    High school kids harass their elders on a daily basis. Even if the Covington kid was guilty as accused, other kids throughout America were doing worse things to old people … mugging them, punching them, maybe even killing them. Even if caught on video, the media would not show these incidents unless the left found them politically useful. … This framing of the news has gone on for more than fifty years. …

    the Washington Post, CNN, and the rest were prepared to ruin the lives of some adolescents, who had come to Washington to march for life, to score a cheap political point. …

    I am a Midwestern boy. I had no real connection to it. My first exposure to it was The Dukes of Hazzard. We called it the rebel flag and it entailed everything rebellious. It was cool.

    I married a southern woman and live in NC. I get irritated when northerners move here and make the most disparaging remarks about Southerners or they talk like a racist idiot thinking that that is how Southerners are. Most Southerners are too gracious to correct such stupidity. It may be my protective feelings for my wife, but I tend to tell those people to show some respect and set them straight on southern culture. -- hopefully that's my rant for the day

    Having lived all over the US, I have found that there are more racist people in the "Blue States" than any of the Red States. truth.
