Covington Catholic High School will be closed Tuesday after authorities told administrators it was unsafe for students to be on campus.
“After meeting with local authorities, we have made the decision to cancel school and be closed on Tuesday, January 22, in order to ensure the safety of our students, faculty and staff,” said a letter from school principal, Robert Rowe, according to Fox19.
“All activities on campus will be cancelled for the entire day and evening. Students, parents, faculty and staff are not to be on campus for any reason. Please continue to keep the Covington Catholic Community in your prayers,” the letter continued.
Days after the mainstream press falsely accused the several students from the school of “racism” by purposefully playing out of context videos, the school community is still feeling the blowback.
Originally, the establishment conservative media jumped on the leftist media bandwagon, bashing the boys. Most of them have apologized for their hastiness. Some in the left wing media are coming around, too, including S.E. Cupp of CNN, who apologized on Twitter, not to the boys, but for “reacting too quickly.” Most of the left wing press is either dodging an apology, or still actively in attack mode despite the exculpatory evidence.
As Tucker Carlson said in an epic monologue Monday night, the elite media simply could not help themselves. They just had to prove that they were our moral better. In doing so, they neglected the most basic responsibility of their job, providing context around the incident.
Now, because of press malfeasance, the boys’ personal lives have been thrust into chaos and their school must be closed out of fear of physical violence.

City of Denver Unanimously Votes to Rename Columbus Park “La Raza Park”
There might come a time when nothing in the US is named after Christopher Columbus.
The Denver City Council unanimously voted to rename Columbus Park last week Monday, and now it will be named “La Raza Park.”
“La raza” is Spanish for “the race,” which has connotations with Latino identity politics. A Denver Post article tells us that the phrase “viva la raza” (long live the race) was the “rallying cry of the Chicano movement in the 1960s and ’70s.” The Chicano Movement encouraged Mexican ethnic and cultural solidarity with a particular emphasis on their indigenous heritage. The movement, however, rejected assimilation and thus the term “Mexican-American,” essentially branding themselves as the Hispanic version of the Black Power movement.
Councilwoman Amanda Sandoval claims that the unanimous vote was an act of officially naming a park that has “always” been unofficially called by its new name. “La raza is a word of unity and about celebrating community,” she said without a hint of irony.
The reason for officially renaming the park is about what you’d expect, namely because Christopher Columbus is irredeemably associated with colonialism and genocide and is thus not fit to be honored in any way, shape, or form.
Arturo Gonzalez, a retired professor, said that “Mexican Chicanos and Indigenous peoples have suffered genocide over the last 500 years. We live with that trauma. We continue to live with that trauma.”
Renaming parks, buildings, and schools that were previously named after so-called “problematic” or “white supremacist” historical figures is nothing new, of course, but the practice has accelerated over the past several months due to the hysteria following the George Floyd riots.
Big League Politics has covered many instances of this phenomenon. One of the most recent instances included a San Francisco school district renaming Abraham Lincoln High School because black lives apparently “didn’t matter” to him:
