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.
Leftist Michael Moore Chides Joe Biden for Pursuing “White Racist Redneck Votes in Michigan”
Moore isn’t happy Biden is going for Republican voters.
Leftist filmmaker Michael Moore blasted Democratic nominee for pursuing what he termed as “white racist redneck votes in Michigan in a Saturday tweet.
So the Biden campaign thought getting a few more White racist redneck votes in Michigan was more important than getting the Black vote in Flint? Better to embrace the mass-poisoning Republican ex-Governor than worry about “those Black people?” Are u nuts? Apologize & retract NOW.

Moore took offense at Biden’s decision to accept the endorsement of NeverTrump RINO former Michigan Governor Rick Snyder. Snyder, who left office as one of the most unpopular governors in the history of the state, oversaw the response to the Flint water crisis.

Moore saw it as offensive that Biden would tout Snyder’s endorsement on the basis of the water scandal, in which tens of thousands of mostly black Flint residents were provided with contaminated and dangerous tap water on the part of the state.
It’s of some political importance to point out that Joe Biden isn’t a socialist. He’s a neoliberal corporate Democrat with a long track record of policy positions that are distinct from the track record of socialists such as Bernie Sanders. The former Vice President is planning on coasting to victory through making inroads with senior and suburban affluent voters, but his reluctance to pay homage to young left-wing voters who formed a considerable part of the 2008 Obama coalition could spell his November downfall.
Moore’s description of supposed “white racist redneck voters” in Michigan doesn’t exactly spell much in support of new voter outreach on the part of Democrats, suggesting that the seemingly malleable Democrat coalition might stretch too much and figuratively explode.
