The Indian and the Sandmann
Even if you live under a rock, in a cave or on the moon, you’ve no doubt heard about the kerfuffle in Washington, D.C. between a MAGA hat-wearing boy, an Indian with a drum, black racist cult members and the Trump Derangement Syndrome-suffering mainstream media and Twitterverse.
You had to have heard about it. It’s consumed the MSM since Friday, when they all got it all wrong (except Reason.com). And they’re mostly still getting it wrong.
Trump Derangement Syndrome (TDS) is a mental illness that infects all the mainstream media and half or more of America. It has afflicted the country like a plague from outer space; its effects so profound that it has sent seemingly rational people into fits of wailing and crying as if their young child just died. Experienced journalists suffering from TDS — long thought to have been seekers and arbiters of the truth — have abandoned all sense of propriety and no longer even feign objectivity where President Donald Trump or his supporters are concerned.
The narrative that broke the Twitterverse and the minds of “journalists” everywhere was that a bunch of privileged white kids from a Kentucky Catholic school shouted racial slurs and invective first at a few black dudes preaching the Bible, then at a poor old Indian man named Nathan Phillips who was marching for “Native American rights” and was also a Vietnam veteran. The Catholic boys mobbed the poor Indian man who was only minding his business and banging a drum, preventing him from moving forward. The leader of the Catholic pack was a white privileged MAGA-hat wearing racist who smirked disrespectfully at the poor Indian “elder.”
Even the so-called “conservative” media piled on, the worst of which was National Review, which posted an article titled, “The Covington Students Might as Well Have Spit on the Cross” (since deleted). The kids were even thrown under the bus by their own school, which issued a statement condemning the students and apologizing to Phillips.
But it’s all fake news.
The kids were minding their own business, doing what they were instructed to do — gathering at the Lincoln Memorial — while waiting for their bus to arrive. Through no fault of their own, they got caught in the maelstrom of insanity that is Social Marxism, identity politics and rabid anti-Trumpism.
The black dudes “preaching the Bible” were part of a cult of black supremacists who claim to be descendants of Israelites and who condemn whites as devils. The Black Hebrew Israelites are so radical that even the Southern Preposterous Lie Center calls them a “hate group,” probably the only leftist group to ever earn such a designation from the SPLC.
They started taunting the kids with racial and homophobic slurs and told a black student in the group that his school peers would harvest and eat his organs because he’s black. The kids responding by shouting out a few school spirit chants to drown out the expletives and invective being hurled at them.
It was then that Phillips marched into the crowd, singling out MAGA-hat wearing Nick Sandmann. Phillips got into Sandmann’s grill and proceeded to beat his drum in his face and chant. He did it, Phillips claimed, to calm down the situation; because nothing says calm down like getting in someone’s face and banging a drum. (For the snowflakes and feminazis reading this, in man world one man getting into the face of another is a direct challenge — sort of like a slap with a glove. It’s an invitation to fisticuffs. And that’s precisely what Phillips wanted.)
Sandmann, showing great restraint, just stood there and smiled. He even nodded to one of his buddies that all was OK. But since we have devolved into George Orwell’s 1984dystopia, we learn that Sandmann committed a “facecrime,” by smiling — or “smirking” his “white privilege” as the leftists categorized it — rather kicking the snot out of the old man.
Rather than apologize after complete videos came out showing the conventional wisdom narrative was wrong, much of the MSM either deleted their initial stories and tweets without correction or comment, or they issued lame non-apology apologies that blamed Sandmann and his “gang” for a series of “isms” because they wore red MAGA hats; implying that whatever fate that befalls them is deserved. That justified the calls for “smashing the kids faces” or “feeding them into the woodchipper” that ensued on Twitter. The rest piled on, looking at school photos to find students in “blackface” (it was a blackout game) and racist hand gestures (basketball players signaling their teammate had just scored a three-pointer).
What the MSM also didn’t do is correct its lionization of Phillips, who falsely claimed to have served in Vietnam. He didn’t. And he was AWOL three times in four years and was a refrigerator repairman, not a “recon ranger” as he claims. He also has a criminal record, including convictions or guilty pleas for assault and escape and a host of alcohol-related charges from his early years.
The day after his encounter with Sandmann, Phillips and a group of “Native American activists” tried to enter the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Washington, D.C., during evening mass, chanting and banging on drums in order to disrupt the service. Because he wanted peace and conciliation, I guess.
That’s the left’s hero, while 16-year-old Sandmann is being raked over the coals. And the media wonder why people hate them.
More MSM lunacy
While working to destroy the lives of innocent teenagers caught in the MSM’s anti-Trump crossfire, social media-scouring “journalists” rolled up another kid as collateral damage.
Someone named Michael Hodge from Cincinnati was misidentified as the guy who “stared down the Native American elder,” and he and his family became the victims of online threats and attacks. Their personal information was shared online and “members of his family were harassed and spammed with ‘threats of physical violence,'” according to Michael’s brother, Andrew.
“My parents, uncles, & aunts, receive messages stating they are pieces of shit parents and won’t be able to protect #MichaelHodge forever… seriously what kind of behavior is this?” Andrew Hodge wrote.
Man, you’ve got to love those “tolerant” leftists.
That’s not how that works
A couple of crazy white people who have been injecting themselves with the synthetic hormone Melanotan to darken their skin appeared on a British morning show and claimed that doctors have told them that they are black and their future children will be born black.
The 30-year-old woman, a previously-white and once somewhat attractive German “glamour model” who now has a face like a catcher’s mitt — and the same color — is named Martina Big. She’s “famous” for having breast enhancements that “took her breasts to a 32S,” according to The Daily Mail. Her husband is 31-year-old Michael Eurwen, a balding fat man who is about five shades lighter than Ms. Big. In other words, he’s still just a bald fat white dude claiming he’s black.
On the show, an incredulous hostess asked Ms. Big, “Doctors have told you that your baby will be black?”
To which Big Martina responded, “Yep, they said they will be black. We have also discussed about breast feeding and if it is safe for me to have a baby.”
Still not convinced, the hostess asked, “If that baby is not black, because I’m trying to understand how genetically this would be possible, will you still be close to them if you give birth to a white baby?”
Big Martina doubled down. “Of course- it will be a mix of me and Micheal, but I’m pretty sure it will be black, but if it is milk chocolate or a little bit lighter it doesn’t matter.”
Which just goes to show you people will believe anything a doctor tells them, no matter how insane it is.
More fake climate science uncovered
A study published in the journal Nature on October 31 claimed that ocean temperatures had warmed 60 percent more than even the UN’s scaremongering Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report claims, a startling revelation if true. According to the most recent UN IPCC report, climate emissions have to be cut by 20 percent by 2030 and zeroed out to keep warming from exceeding 3.6 Fahrenheit above their preindustrial levels.
As The Daily Caller points out, after their study was published, the study’s authors claimed emission levels would have to be cut even more because warming was worse than anyone thought. The fake news Washington Post focused on the study, claiming it meant the “Earth could be set to warm even faster than predicted.” The fake news New York Times said the study showed, global warming “has been more closely in line with scientists’ worst-case scenarios.” The BBC exclaimed, “[t]his could make it much more difficult to keep global warming within safe levels this century.”
But so-called “climate skeptic” Nick Lewis didn’t take their findings at face value and decided to run their numbers. He found a math error. “A big error,” University of Colorado professor Roger Pielke Jr. called it.
Once the numbers were corrected and recalculations were made, the rate of warming stayed consistent with previous overestimates of global warming by the study’s authors.
When told about it, at least the study authors admitted they’d erred and pulled their report.
