In an attempt to back pedal after throwing a group of high school kids to the wolves, National Review quietly erased their article condemning the teenagers, and began posting tweets sympathetic to them on Twitter.
Less than 12 hours after publishing the sharp toothed hit piece, “The Covington Students Might as Well Have Just Spit on the Cross”, National Review quietly purged the article from its website after facts came out vindicating the students in the viral video, which purportedly showed the Catholic high school students surrounding and intimidating a Vietnam veteran.
The article, which condemned the Catholic school students as anti-Christian, was written by National Review deputy managing editor Nicholas Frankovich. It was published at nearly 3 a.m. this morning, and was erased from the website by 3 p.m. in the afternoon. Fortunately, the hit piece had already been archived.
In his now-deleted article, Frankovich compares the children to the Roman soldiers responsible for the torture and crucifixion of Jesus Christ, describing their actions as “evil”:
It appears that most of the teenagers in this video are from a Catholic high school near Covington, Kentucky, across the Ohio River from Cincinnati. They mock a serious, frail-looking older man and gloat in their momentary role as Roman soldiers to his Christ. “Bullying” is a worn-out word and doesn’t convey the full extent of the evil on display here.
Frankovich also attempts to appeal to Christians’ desire to be Christ-like, begging the question at the end of the article, “Decide for yourself who is more pleasing to Christ, Phillips or his mockers,” and concluding, “As for the putatively Catholic students from Covington, they might as well have just spit on the cross and got it over with.”
As Big League Politics reported yesterday, the students, who are accused of making racist chants directed at a Native American veteran while physically intimidating him, have been completely vindicated after a lengthier video shows the Native American approached them and began drumming and chanting. The teens, who both provided their story to various right wing media outlets and had it corroborated via video, maintain that they were respectful and confused by the man’s presence.
Indisputable video evidence of the entire interaction shows the Native man approaching the boys as they stood doing school chants on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial. The press blatantly flipped the narrative around. The boy at the center of the video, who has been demonized and doxxed by internet crazies, did not approach the Native man. The Native man approached him.
After these facts came to light, National Review journalists began posting tweets defending the teenagers, and condemning the media frenzy which they had been a part of mere hours earlier.
Agreed. The mobbing and threatening of these kids has been disgraceful. And now we’re on the phase of the controversy where it’s apparently important to tell the world that their school is some sort of hellhole. https://t.co/Y6GHwdhrT2

Without verifying their information, the left wing media and their allies in the #NeverTrump coalition, including National Review, published an incessant flurry of hit pieces slamming the students. Many of these hit pieces resulted in the doxxing of the students, and a series of death threats made against them on social media.
Big League Politics reporters have also unveiled troubling facts about the Native American man at the center of the controversy. The man, Nathan Phillips, has a long track record of making media appearances to accuse others of “anti-Native racism” and is now fundraising with the Native Youth Leadership Alliance, a shady group that receives money from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, the Rockefeller Brothers Fund, and the Social Justice Fund Northwest.
New York Times Claims Churches are ‘Major Source’ of COVID-19 Infections…Despite Accounting for Only 0.02% of Cases
This is a war on Christianity.
The New York Times published an article on Wednesday that claimed, “Churches Were Eager to Reopen, Now They Are a Major Source of Coronavirus Infections.”
“More than 650 coronavirus cases have been linked to nearly 40 churches and religious events across the United States since the beginning of the pandemic,” the Times claims, “with many of them erupting over the last month as Americans resumed their pre-pandemic activities.”
Reason Magazine performed an analysis of the claims made by the Times and found they were complete bunk. Only 0.02% of cases have come from churches, an infinitesimal percentage, but the fake news targets churches while giving a pass to leftists who are rioting and looting nationwide.
“The number of confirmed COVID-19 infections in the United States is now 3.1 million, meaning the church-related cases identified by the Times account for 0.02 percent of the total. On the face of it, that does not seem like “a major source of coronavirus infections.” And there are something like 385,000 churches in the U.S., so the ones tied to COVID-19 infections represent around 0.01 percent of Christian congregations,” Reason Magazine wrote.
Reason Magazine noted that the article from the Times is bigoted against Christianity and serves as propaganda against religious worship. The Times claims that COVID-19 “has struck churches that reopened cautiously with face masks and social distancing in the pews, as well as some that defied lockdowns and refused to heed new limits on numbers of worshipers.”
“The issue is whether churches can reopen with an acceptable level of risk by following the same guidelines that apply to other settings where people gather for extended periods of time. By implying that precautions don’t really matter, the Times is sending a dangerous message to Americans, many of whom are already weary of social distancing rules and disinclined to wear masks,” Reason Magazine wrote.
Big League Politics has reported on how Christian pastors have been charged with crimes for holding services during COVID-19 mass hysteria:
Another Christian pastor is being charged with crimes for holding church services during the coronavirus lockdown.
Mark Anthony Spell, a Central, La. pastor, is receiving six misdemeanor charges for disobeying Gov. John Bel Edwards’ emergency shutdown edicts after he held church services this past weekend.
“Over the last two weeks I have worked with the sheriff, state police, the state fire marshal, Reverend Tony Perkins, and others to address this matter outside of legal action. Mr. Spell made his intentions to continue to violate the law clear. Instead of showing the strength and resilience of our community during this difficult time, Mr. Spell has chosen to embarrass us for his own self-promotion,” said Central Police Chief Roger Corcoran, who issued the misdemeanor summons to Spell.
“Mr. Spell will have his day in court where he will be held responsible for his reckless and irresponsible decisions that endangered the health of his congregation and our community. This is not an issue over religious liberty, and it’s not about politics. We are facing a public health crisis and expect our community’s leaders to set a positive example and follow the law,” he added.
Spell has allegedly convened six unlawful church services at his Life Tabernacle Church hosting more individuals at his worship proceedings than what is allowed by the state. East Baton Rouge District Attorney Hillar Moore said Spell is receiving a misdemeanor count for every time he allegedly violated the edict. They will not charge everyone who gathered unlawfully at the church but will attempt to make an example of Spell because “encouraged others to violate” the law.
The Left has used COVID-19 to punish Christians, as they exploit the crisis to punish hurt enemies and gain illicit control.
