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?
Make no mistake that's what the unhinged leftists are doing now. Moving the "goal posts" so CHILDREN are now OPEN SEASON. #CovingtonCatholic
"Force out hate" says this woman's bio, as she makes tweets that outlandishly compare #CovingtonCatholic to 1950s segregation of blacks.

The hateful person here is you, Morgan. Get help.

MORE CONTEXT:
-The #CovingtonCatholic boys were engaging a counter protest,
- then the Native man walked up to the crowd as they were doing a school chant, - then the full length video you saw passed around.

*THEY walked up to KID with the drums. KID DIDN'T walk up to THEM.*
oh BULLSHIT 🤣
CNN is hamming this up.
You can choose to do something about that, or let them get away with that. archive.is/dFlQs
"You white people go back to Europe, this is not your land"

AND PEOPLE ARE YELLING AT #CovingtonCatholic FOR THIS?
WHY? WHY?
Leave those goddamn kids alone. If you have a problem with them, I have a problem with you.
> Expulsion.

The kids of #CovingtonCatholic are going to have their lives DESTROYED because Buzzfeed figuratively strangled them to death
Let's see. We got a
"Black Agenda Report Editor and Senior Columnist" DOXING THE SCHOOL

DO YOU THINK SHE GIVES A DAMN ABOUT THE DAMAGE TO THESE KIDS SHE'S DOING? No.

(and Patreon doesn't allow for targeted harassment like that.)

Dear @maggieNYT

Is this tweet of yours considered written permission to call up your high school and ask for your records?

Please correct me if im wrong, but you seem to consider such a thing newsworthy.
HERE’S A MIRROR FOR THE YOUTUBE VIDEO
A student from #Covington gives their side to the MSM smear campaign archive.is/4a3Hm
A message to the kids of #CovingtonCatholic -- I know today must have been very confusing and scary for you.

This hyper-politicized place that our society has become.

I promise there's hope. I promise the whole world isn't all against you.
Don't let what happened to you be something that turns you away from logic, facts, and reason. Calmer heads prevail and the truth comes out.
I want to apologize to #CovingtonCatholic 's students.

The world is treating you like you don't know any better.
But it's the world that doesn't know any better in their condemnation of you. The youth. School students. You should be FREE to make mistakes, and be able to learn.
A lesson for you.

Below is a screenshot example of something called Left-wing Extremism. It's when an "advocacy group" is really a front for pushing political agendas. They don't have morals or values. They just want to win, and they'll steamroll you to get there.
Look at everyone with their hot takes dunking on school children
Gizmodo staff member joins in on the "Let's beat up school children" mob

Decides to make the situation all about them
This person needs to be reported for targeted harassment. They're attacking family members of the #CovingtonCatholic students
This one too
These as well
For some reason people are attacking the parents of #CovingtonCatholic students

Here's another one
... OH MY GOD
They are trying to get the mother fired from her job
And the father
The entire family tree of the #CovingtonCatholic student is being attacked
this is insane
Report Kathy Griffin for targeted harassment of the #CovingtonCatholic students.
Shaun King is painting these kids as "the face of terrorism"
And THIS is the effects of Shaun King and Kathy Griffin's warmongering.

Ruining people's lives forever
"My apologies. I latched on to the wrong name."
"Sandman should find a good hiding place."
The Extremist Left is going as far as CONTACTING COLLEGES and trying to sabotage any aspirations for a future that #CovingtonCatholic students have

I don't understand why people are doing this
"we have to make sure he gets violated"
Twitter has an option to report tweets that incite violence. If you wanted to report something like that, I have just the tweet for you.
One of the main ringleaders of the #CovingtonCatholic harassment campaign is someone by the name of William LeGate.

"If confirmed, I will release the names of the kid's parents"
If you want to see more video footage, here's an interesting thread from @ZachFromIthaca
Just in case it gets deleted for w/e reason "The buses finally show up for the Covington kids and then the Black Israelites turned on the Catholics or whoever the hell were silently holding hands with their backs turned. The way that this has been spun is sickening. "
Regarding the "BUILD THE WALL" chant alleged to have occurred, according to Phillips + MSM...

Testimony from #CovingtonCatholic students interviewed by @JoeySalads -- "nobody chanted build the wall."
The only POSSIBLE explanation for the "BUILD THE WALL" aspect of this story?

Is at 0:05 to 0:12 of this video I posted earlier. Some kids are shouting, it's hard to distinguish who it was or how many of them. Or even what is said.
HOWEVER *The Black Israelites brought up the wall directly.* (starting at the 0:25 mark.)
.... When they accused the #CovingtonCatholic students of being future school shooters. 🙃
Got a tip from someone in touch with one of the #CovingtonCatholic students.
" they are watching the doxxing efforts against them. They are even getting personal threats and their school message board is filled with warnings"
Attached is one of the threats against #CovingtonCatholic

They say "if you want to come with us tomorrow we're going to vandalize the fuck" out of it.
National Review took down a controversial article about #CovingtonCatholic (spotted just now by @JackPosobiec )
Somebody messaged me to vouch on behalf of Nathan Phillips, and they gave me permission to share that testimony in this thread.
(this is in response to a tweet I made earlier in this thread, yesterday. )
"In the context of everything that was going on (which the media hasn’t shown) the parents and mentors of these boys should be proud, not ashamed, of their kids’ behavior. It is my honor to represent them." -- says @RepThomasMassie in a statement on #CovingtonCatholic situation
"What does @RepThomasMassie mean when he refers to the media?"

Speaking of deleting tweets -- Twitter Safety is reportedly being VERY SLUGGISH in addressing the #CovingtonCatholic harassment campaign that's attacking the students.

On a lighter note, sensible people like @JosephKahn (director on Taylor Swift music videos) see the reality of the #CovingtonCatholic situation.

"I'm no fan of Trump and his supporters, and I'm pro choice, but seems like those teens got unfair coverage."
Marcus Frejo is one of the Native Americans involved in the #CovingtonCatholic incident.

In a Facebook post (that @timcast found), Marcus ACKNOWLEDGES "the hebrew Israelite brothers said some disrespectful things"

and condoned the homophobic comments made that day.
CNN is one of the main culprits on this #CovingtonCatholic debacle, by the looks of it

WHEN Left-Wing Extremists and the MSM media jackals attacked #CovingtonCatholic students this weekend, some had MISIDENTIFIED Sandmann as Michael Hodge.

Meet Michael Hodge's brother, Andrew. He lays out the horrors that his ENTIRE FAMILY had to face these past few days.
Why does @BarackObama follow someone who is threatening to burn #CovingtonCatholic to the ground?

AND NOW we get another #CovingtonCatholic clip archive.is/Pd4zJ
While the clip posted DOES SAY “ITS NOT RAPE IF YOU ENJOY" it, Khary **mischaracterizes** it as something the #CovingtonCatholic kids in the MAGA hats said.

They did not.

Plus, it's a 6 second clip. We have no clue why the ONE kid in the Cincinnati Bengals gear said that.
Here's the original tweet where this video came from. Has 3000 retweets and will probably grow as people want any more reason to attack #CovingtonCatholic archive.is/ot9bZ

A six-second clip alleging a kid from #CovingtonCatholic said "It's not rape if you enjoy it" has been circulating on social media.

Here's more context to the video. (found here archive.is/UfmTn)
UPDATE: According to a #CovingtonCatholic student, the person who said "it's not rape if you enjoy it" DOESN'T EVEN GO TO THEIR SCHOOL.

I REPEAT. THE KID DOES NOT EVEN GO TO #CovingtonCatholic
I got double confirmation on this one.
