So much truth here: @PoliticalOrgy ...
YEP.
Renewed interest in #RoyMoore...

Where does a country go to regain democracy when a kleptocracy has stolen elections and laughs about it?
There HAS to be punishment.
And recompense.

Teen in Lincoln Memorial protest sues Washington Post for $250 million #Covington reut.rs/2GPsfP3
The lawsuit, filed in U.S. District Court in Kentucky by Covington Catholic High School student Nicholas Sandmann, 16, seeks $250 million in damages, the amount that @JeffBezos, founder of Amazon.com and the world’s richest person, paid for the Post in 2013.
The lawsuit claims that the newspaper “wrongfully targeted and bullied” the teen to advance its bias against President Trump because Sandmann is a white Catholic who wore a Make America Great Again souvenir cap on a school field trip to the #MarchforLife rally in D.C.

So, @NYMag’s @nhannahjones (with 100K followers) implies “the MAGA kid” was treated with “grace”, “benefit of the doubt” & ability to be “viewed as a child”

She actually R/T’d that #Covington was a case of “white supremacy”

And journalists wonder why they’re viewed negatively?
The idea of giving both kids (she cites the case of Kalief Browder) the benefit of the doubt, treating them with grace and as kids **regardless of race** doesn’t seem to have crossed her mind
Also, spoiler alert: Browder plead guilty to grand larceny. And came from a broken family with no father figure (thanks Dems and welfare state)

He later committed suicide after a lengthy stay in prison after being accused - possibly falsely - of another crime

1) I've tweeted already about why the contrition & apologies towards the #Covington kids is misplaced and wrong. But their Trump-inspired racism & bullying is not new - we've seen this in schools across the country since Trump's emergence in 2015. Here's some evidence:

2) In March 2016, high school basketball fans in Indiana chanted ‘Build A Wall’ at their Latino opponents.

In this thread, I'm going to archive flagrant information spread about #Covington by significant figures, supposedly in the news and commentary business. We can't let these media outlets just delete this and try to move on. There has to be accountability.

Trump is the subtext to the rage you're seeing...

Normal Americans know that face is Who We Are. The Damaged are Triggered

#SmirkRight
Images of election night 2016, the image of smiling #MAGA fratboys next to images dejected sacks of lard at Hilloory headquarters were burned into their minds, and since then they've been looking for revenge. The #Covington kid is another outlet for their titanic rage
the hatred of Trump itself proxy for very old personal and often ethnic resentments. Cowards like @BenHowe are driven to a rage by that smirk because they remember guys who shoved them in high skrewl (and who they lusted for). Trump as "80s movie bully" for such types

Ok, so it turns out the #Covington kids might have been riled up by the other group of black demonstrators close to them. THAT SAID............
1. Why did the ADULT chaperones with the #Covington students not move them to a different spot? That's kinda their job in such situations.
2. In what way does that excuse the confrontational tactic employed by the boy in the viral video? If you want to claim the high road, then TAKE the high road.

1/ Thread: Piecing together the calamity from the #Covington students that were attending the anti-abortion march in DC and their altercation with others at the Lincoln memorial.

Research in bias, cognitive dissonance presented in a timeline of events via OSINT video footage.
2/ First, there isn’t a single video showing what happened. Currently there are a prevelance of short 5-10 second videos which encourages the viewer to impart their own bias as to what happened.

Keep that in mind when watching the next links to videos.
3/ Video 1, The students interact with activists that were already on the steps of the memorial. The students and activists are tense; the students summon their 1 of 2 minority students. “Armand” shows, the activists warn him he should “get out”. video.twimg.com/ext_tw_video/1…

I was watching this video waiting for a moment where the kids at #CovingtonCatholic did something truly outrageous, like getting into a physical altercation.

But there's none of that in this video. All I see is stupid kids WHO DON'T KNOW ANY BETTER, NOT KNOWING ANY BETTER.
But apparently, SOME SCHOOL STUDENTS MAKING IDIOTIC COMMENTS **TO THEMSELVES** is enough for the internet to attack them.
What the fuck is Anna Merlan of Jezebel doing? ruining the lives of children?
