Jonah Goldberg Defends National Review’s ‘Spit On The Cross’ Comparison of Covington Students

Published

on

National Review Senior Editor Jonah Goldberg defended the outlet’s publication of an article promoting the Covington Catholic leftist hate hoax in an exchange with Big League Politics’ Twitter on Sunday.

Goldberg responded to an inquiry from Big League Politics requesting a statement on NRO’s publication (and subsequent deletion) of an article titled “The Covington Students Might As Well Have Spit on the Cross.” The article, published by National Review deputy managing editor Nicholas Frankovich, treated the now-discredited hate hoax accusations against Covington Catholic High School students as fact even AFTER evidence refuted initial reports.

Once it was unquestionable the students were engaged by Nathan Philips by responding peacefully, opposed to circling the man and chanting abuse at him as initially reported. National Review was forced to delete the article in disgrace. In its content, Frankovich attacked the religious affiliation of the high school boys.

As of Sunday night, neither Frankovich nor National Review has issued a much needed and appropriate apology to the high school kids they shamelessly smeared as the unwitting “conservative” dupes of the progressive left.

Big League Politics asked several National Review writers and personnel for a statement in response to the debacle. Sources within the publication have alleged that a massive internal backlash had developed in response the the publication of Frankovich’s article, which was apparently published without the approval of National Review executive staff.

Goldberg responded with a non-sequitur, defending the controversial article’s publication under the premise of simply being indicative of ideological diversity at NRO.

Goldberg’s claim about a diversity of opinion within the publication has little to nothing to do with a potential apology from Frankovich or NRO. The ‘Spit on the Cross’ article blatantly and shamelessly propagandized a flat-out-lie about Covington Catholic students, on premises now revealed to be false.

These boys are owed an apology, Jonah- crouching behind a fall guy just isn’t going to cut it.

New York Times Writer Blames Evangelical Christians for Chinese Coronavirus

Not China’s Communist Party.

Published

on

A New York Times writer published a column largely assigning blame for America’s Chinese coronavirus epidemic on Evangelical Christians.

In Stewart’s column, titled ‘The Religious Right’s Hostility to Science is Crippling Our Coronavirus Response,’ she frames conservative Christians for a supposed lacking national effort to contain the disease. Stewart alleges that Christians within the administration are preventing the federal government from recognizing ‘science,’ repeating a trope long alleged by liberals that their political opponents are supposedly ignorant of the discipline.
In the article, Stewart claims that “Donald Trump rose to power with the determined assistance of a movement that denies science, bashes government and prioritized loyalty over professional expertise. In the current crisis, we are all reaping what that movement has sown.”

She fails that recognize that scientific experts on viral outbreaks such as Dr. Anthony Fauci have informed the federal government’s response since the beginning of the crisis.

Stewart fails to mention that it was progressive liberals across the world who largely opposed international travel bans, a scientifically verifiable means of virus transmission and spread. The European Union lagged well behind the United States and Canada in placing curbs on travel across borders.

Perhaps most egregiously, she fails to even so much as assign any culpability for America’s coronavirus epidemic on the Chinese Communist Party, which failed to so much as even admit the scale of the problem as the disease first took the form of a true public health pandemic in China. The CCP’s negligent cover-up of the coronavirus epidemic in undoubtedly the most ‘unscientific’ governmental approach to the virus, with grave consequences. And China’s authoritarian leaders are by no means conservative Christians.

Stewart’s reaching move to blame Evangelicals for the coronavirus outbreak in America is merely a reactionary take from a cultural liberal seeking to impute political commentary in the midst of a pandemic.
