The Diocese of Covington released a statement apologizing to the Nick Sandmann and the teenage students who were falsely smeared by the media as racists due to their interaction with Native activist, Nathan Phillips.
After a week of false reporting that lead to death threats, doxxing, and bomb scares, bolstered by the Covington Diocese’s unwillingness to admit they might have been wrong about the students, the diocese finally released a statement formally apologizing to the teens.
The statement, written and signed by Bishop Robert J. Foys, served to retract its previous statements and apologize to Sandmann in particular.
“We are sorry that this situation has caused such disruption in the lives of so many. We apologize to anyone who has been offended in any way by either of our statements which were made with good will based on the information we had,” the statement read, “We should not have allowed ourselves to be bullied and pressured into making a statement prematurely, and we take full responsibility for it.”
“I especially apologize to Nicholas Sandmann and his family as well as to all CovCath families who have felt abandoned during this ordeal,” Bishop Foys continued, “Nicholas unfortunately has become the face of these allegations based on video clips. This is not fair. It is not just.”

Prior to this written apology, many of the Covington Catholic parents had planned to keep their children home from a Catholic Confirmation ceremony, preventing them from joining the Catholic Church.
The Diocese of Covington had put out two previous statements which appeared to pile-on to the media’s narrative about racist teens confronting the Native-man, Phillips, who claimed he was a Vietnam war veteran.
This narrative has completely fallen apart over the last week, as a longer video exonerated the students, and Phillips was outed to be a former refrigerator repairman who never saw Vietnam, and a current radical left wing activist.
POLITICAL HIT? Pro-Trump Portland, Oregon Print Shop Owner Gunned Down in Parking Lot
The shooting of a Portland man is colored with political connotations.
A Portland man who operated a print shop was shot and killed in the parking lot of a nightclub on Saturday, with police thus far unable to apprehend a suspect or establish a motive. 40-year old William Peters was shot and killed in the parking lot of the Acropolis bar, with a friend of his, Adam David-Lawrence Arrambide, also being shot and killed in a double homicide.
Peters was senselessly murdered on his four-year old daughter’s birthday. He also leaves behind a fiancée. Reports sourced from purported friends of Peters indicate that the 503print owner was leaving the club uneventfully when a vehicle pulled up in front of the parking spot his truck was in. After an exchange of words, Peters, and Arrambide were shot.
Big League Politics has learned that Peters previously made himself a target of ANTIFA intimidation for printing pro-Donald Trump banners and imagery at his print shop. The father also personally supported Donald Trump, a bold move in the notoriously left-wing and bigoted Oregon city.
On a Portland Reddit page, left-wing haters celebrated the family man’s death, claiming the shooting was deserved because of Peters’ support for Trump. Other users on the forum confirmed that the small businessman was known as a Trump supporter, potentially making it onto the Stasi-style ‘lists’ that the extremist group has compiled of conservatives in Multnomah County.
Portland ANTIFA has proven more than willing to target businesses that stand in the way of their own political power, especially in the city’s downtown area. In the wake of Peters’ seemingly random homicide, it’s difficult to ignore the political implications of the targeted assassination. Anyone with information on the disturbing double homicide is being asked to step forward and contact Det. Scott Broughton at Scott.Broughton@portlandoregon.gov or 503-823-3774 or Det. Eric McDaniel at Eric.McDaniel@portlandoregon.gov or 503-823-0833.
A GoFundMe raising money for Peters’ funeral expenses has already received more than $8,500 in contributions from mourners.
