Steve Knipper, frontrunner for the GOP nomination for Kentucky’s Secretary of State and an alumnus of Covington Catholic High School, spoke with Big League Politics Monday morning in the midst of the controversy surrounding the school.
“It’s just one of those things where they’re going to try to make a story,” Knipper, a 1988 graduate of the the school said, referring to the mainstream press
“Here’s a Northern Kentucky prep school that raises leaders. The discipline at Covington Catholic is so pronounced I can’t see somebody doing something to provoke a fight like that,” he continued.
Knipper was referring to the incident in which a Native American man approached a group of teenaged Covington Catholic students who were in Washington, D.C. for the March for Life last Friday. The man was beating his drum in the middle of their gathering as the boys, some wearing #MAGA hats, laughed along. Short clips of the incident made it appear as though the boys were mocking the man. The full clip, though, along with further evidence, shows that Native man approached the boys first. Further research into the man, Nathan Phillips, proves that he is a leftist activist and D-list celebrity. All signs point to the indisputable fact that he, not the boys, initiated the interaction. Predictably, the left-wing press has demonized the young men, calling them “racists.”
“It seems to me like they though ‘here’s an opportunity to take advantage of a bunch of younger guys who were wearing Trump hats,'” Knipper said. “I think they wanted to make this a political statement. They probably thought they saw some easy targets and thought ‘we can make a hey day out of this.'”
Leave it to the mainstream press, who was still wiping the egg off of its face after BuzzFeed’s flubbed story on President Donald J. Trump and his personal attorney Michael Cohen, to then immediately use children as political props to smear conservatives.
Knipper noted that there was nothing particularly controversial about the incident. The press, he recalled, claimed that the boys were chanting “build the wall,” when in reality the boys did not. Knipper added that he watched the video “20 or 30 times” to confirm that fact.
He then praised the boy in the center of the controversy, now named as Nathan Sandmann.
“In actuality, I think he showed great restraint,” Knipper said. “Had it been another school, it probably would not have worked out that way. I’ve heard people say, ‘well he had a smirk on his face, or he was making fun of [Phillips].’ I think the guy was just intimidated a little bit. He’s 15 years old and here’s a grown man staring him down, beating a drum in his face.”
“I want to reiterate the fact that Covington Catholic raises leaders,” Knipper finished. “They give you such a good background, a good foundation, and preparation for life. Attitude-wise, socialization, communication, how to treat others – it’s all part of the curriculum. That’s what I would say the left really doesn’t understand about that school, and for them to demonize them, I think they’ve picked on the wrong school.”

HUGE: Court Documents Reveal Shot Kenosha Rioter Joseph Rosenbaum Was a Convicted Child Rapist
Convicted pedophile Joseph Rosenbaum was killed in an altercation at the Kenosha riots.
New court documents of the Pima County, Arizona circuit court reveal that Joseph Rosenbaum was convicted of various sex crimes against children in Arizona in 2002.
Rosenbaum was killed in an altercation while rioting in Kenosha, Wisconsin last week. He is seen on camera lunging at 17-year old Kyle Rittenhouse, who eventually shot him, claiming he acted in self defense when Rosenbaum attempted to take the AR-15 rifle he was carrying. Rittenhouse attempted to flee the scene, and was pursued by two other rioters, one armed with a gun. He tripped and fell, and when the other rioters assailed him, he shot them both. Rosenbaum and one other rioter were killed, and a third wounded. Rittenhouse has been charged with first-degree murder in the shootings.
Watch video of the shootings and decide for yourself.
Shortly after Rosenbaum was identified as one of the deceased individuals, it became public knowledge that he was on the Wisconsin sex offender registry, for crimes committed in Arizona.

The man who may very well have set off the violent altercation is a convicted pedophile, judging from the court documents that were published Wednesday. A presentence report reveals that Rosenbaum committed a range of sex crimes against several boys from the ages of nine to eleven years old, including outright rape.
More documents reveal the legal proceedings against Rosenbaum.
Rosenbaum would be convicted of two of the eleven total charges.
Some leftists had speculated that Rosenbaum was merely a victim of the criminal justice system upon the revelation that he was a convicted sex offender, claiming he had been merely been railroaded for sexual activity with his 17-year old girlfriend as an adult, or something of the like. The new documents disprove such an assertion, demonstrating that Rosenbaum was convicted for some of the most heinous child sex crimes known to society, including the outright rape of children.
Previous criminal records of parties involved in use-of-force incidences aren’t usually admissible in court cases, but Rittenhouse’s argument of self defense appears more credible when his word is placed against the conduct of a convicted pedophile.
