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.
More than 40 College and Young Republican Groups Sign Letter Demanding Action on Big Tech Censorship from Senate GOP
Calling out Silicon Valley’s election interference.
Almost 50 youth conservative organizations, ranging from Young to College Republican Chapters and America First student groups, signed onto an open letter on Friday demanding action from Senate Republicans on Big Tech censorship and political authoritarianism.
The young conservatives and nationalists cited the recent suppression of the Hunter Biden email scandal, with platforms such as Twitter implementing an unprecedented level of political censorship to squelch a New York Post report detailing insider foreign business dealings and Joe Biden’s knowledge of them.
Read the letter in its entirely here.
In a statement provided to Big League Politics, College Republicans United at Arizona State University emphasized the need for conservatives to unite against the authoritarian alliance of the Democratic Party and Silicon Valley tech monopolies.
“Democrats use to be the loudest critics of ‘Corporate America’ trampling on the rights of average Americans. These days they are nothing more then corporate apologists who protect crony capitalism.”
Populist Senator Josh Hawley has taken point in the drive to hold Silicon Valley oligarchs to account for their censorship of the American people, but the anti-Big Tech movement has been hamstrung by malcontents within the Senate GOP caucus unwilling to do little more than whine about censorship, while actively undermining a policy solution.
