Several leading progressives are responding to an incident outside the Lincoln Memorial by calling for violent acts to be inflicted on students from Kentucky’s Covington Catholic High School, who engaged in a peaceful confrontation with a Native American demonstrator on Saturday.
In the incident, the teenaged boys (many of whom were clad in ‘MAGA’ apparel) in the area for the annual March for Life were confronted by Nathan Philips, a Vietnam veteran in the area for a Native American political event. Contrary to the assertions of fake news media reports, the boys did not engage Mr. Philips, but were approached by him as he drummed a beat on a traditional Native American instrument and sang.
There was nothing particularly outrageous or “racist” about the interaction- but that hasn’t stopped progressives and establishment media figures from framing the incident as if represented the embodiment of “white male entitlement.” Several progressives, demonstrating themselves unable to control their naked hatred and pure rage in response to the incident, went so far as to call for the boys to face violence or legal sanction for their (non)action.
One Gizmodo reporter, Anna Merlan, called for the boys to be lowered into a “shark tank” in response to the milquetoast incident.
Not really as amusing as it was when Dr. Evil had the same idea.
The accusations Merlan cited of the boys chanting ‘Build the Wall’ at Philips remain completely unsubstantiated, despite several videos of the incident existing. However, footage of the boys(mostly white) being racially abused by demonstrators accompanying Philips surfaced.
Some progressives outraged by the incident took a more practical approach to physically harming the boys than Merlan’s shark tank fantasy, calling for them to be punched or attacked. Content revealing the identities of Covington Catholic students pictured in the videos and encouraging people to attack them was deleted from Instagram.
One progressive called for the boys to face criminal penalties for the confrontation, without specifying on what grounds they could be prosecuted.
Just another day in the world of the hateful and intolerant left!
President Trump Shuts Down Minnesota Governor’s Demand for $500 Million in Riot Repair Funds
He wanted the taxpayer to pay for the riots.
President Donald Trump formally declined a request from Minnesota Governor Tim Walz to declare Minneapolis a federal disaster zone in the wake of the George Floyd race riots on Saturday, preventing the city’s Democratic governor and mayor from bilking the taxpayer for bailout funds to repair the damage they tacitly allowed through refusal to halt the riots.
Walz’s office confirmed that the White House had refused his request for an emergency declaration on Saturday in a press release, explaining that the governor had hoped the federal government would clean up the mess.
“The Governor is disappointed that the federal government declined his request for financial support,” said a spokesperson in a statement. “As we navigate one of the most difficult periods in our state’s history, we look for support from our federal government to help us through.”
The rioting in Minneapolis may have been among the most destructive ever to occur in the United States, devastating the community, causing what some estimate to be $500 million in damages to property, and damaging more than 500 buildings. Many Americans probably wouldn’t know it, as the corporate media has largely focused on promoting the activities of the rioters, falsely describing them as peaceful protestors, allowing the model of community destruction to be exported to other American communities.
Both Governor Walz and neoliberal Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey had waited fecklessly to deploy the Minnesota National Guard to contain the dangerous situation, hoping to appease the raging mob as the rioters torched a Minneapolis police precinct and destroyed countless small businesses in the city’s downtown area.
At the very least, the state’s Democratic officials won’t be rewarded with a hefty federal bailout as a result of their own irresponsibility and political fecklessness in refusing to crack down on criminal rioters. Sadly, it’ll be members of the Minneapolis community who pay for the cowardice of their local officials, and the once-serene upper-class community may never recover, instead morphing into a dilapidated shell of its former self.
