So I’m cheering on Nick Sandmann’s $250M lawsuit.
The lawsuit, filed in federal court in Kentucky, came as the first of what could be dozens of lawsuits stemming from the Jan. 18 viral encounter in which Covington students initially were depicted as harassing Omaha Nation elder Nathan Phillips.
The complaint argues that the newspaper falsely conveyed the impression that the 16-year-old pro-life marcher “engaged in acts of racism by ‘swarming’ Phillips, ‘blocking’ his exit away from the students, and otherwise engaging in racist misconduct.”
“The Post ignored basic journalist standards because it wanted to advance its well-known and easily documented, biased agenda against President Donald J. Trump (‘the President’) by impugning individuals perceived to be supporters of the President,” said the filing on the Hemmer DeFrank Wessels law firm page.
I reported on this story on LewRockwell.com on January 21st, after I had spent a couple of early-morning hours unwinding some video footage + stories round the ‘Net, in addition to fielding some comments from a young protestor I know who was right there, on the spot, at the time this happened. This was not a difficult dissection. Yet, for days, the lies continued to circulate among the MSM, with scant (or no) attention paid to the the glaringly obvious (full) video making the rounds.
Three weeks later, in mid-February, a bevy of leftist, race-and-hate-baiting websites still continued to circulate the lowbrow lies in spite of the overwhelming evidence of the truth. Heck, even CNN had capitulated by that time. Sue them all.7:46 am on February 20, 2019 Email Karen De Coster
