L. Lin Wood, the Atlanta lawyer representing Covington Catholic student Nick Sandmann in upcoming litigation, spoke with Big League Politics Wednesday to offer some insight into his firm’s investigative process, and the strategy of his client. The Covington Catholic students were smeared by the media after they were confronted by left-wing activists near the Lincoln Memorial at the March for Life.

“The members of the mob who falsely attacked or threatened Nick Sandmann should be on notice that his attorneys will identify them and will take aggressive legal action against them to achieve full accountability for their wrongdoing and willful mistreatment of this young man,” Wood told Big League Politics.

“While our focus is to seek redress for the damage wrongfully inflicted upon Nick, we hope that a byproduct of our efforts for Nick will be to effectuate a sea change in how people in our society treat each other, especially when our children are involved. Nick is not the first victim of a premature rush to judgment based on false information, personal or political agendas, rumors and speculation. Hopefully, through our efforts for Nick and the efforts of an army of individuals and entities who support him and the rule of law, a lesson will finally be learned. We will be relentless in our pursuit of justice for Nick. This is not a threat – this is a fact.”

L. Lin Wood has stated that he is aware of the profane rant that Bill Maher went on against his client.

On Capitol Hill, Democrat congressman John Yarmuth from the students’ home state of Kentucky called for a “complete shutdown of teenagers wearing MAGA hats,” then claimed he was joking after the media’s narrative fell apart.

Kentucky Republican congressman Thomas Massie offered a much more useful perspective.

BLP reported:

In an exclusive interview with Big League Politics, Rep. Thomas Massie (R-Ky.) defended the students of Covington Catholic High School who were unfairly smeared by the mainstream press and subsequently attacked by the political left on social media.

“These kids got a lesson in social media mobs,” Massie said, “and the mob that forms in social media forms quickly, and it is there to bully anybody from saying what they really think and what they believe, particularly if it’s a conservative viewpoint.”

Several boys from Covington Catholic became the object of press and social media scorn after video clips emerged of their interaction with a Native American man named Nathan Phillips last Friday at the March for Life in Washington D.C. Shortened clips showed Nick Sandmann, a student at the school who was wearing a #MAGA hat, smirking at Phillips as Phillips beat his drum in Sandmann’s face. The press narrative, which has now been thoroughly debunked as full videos of the interaction have emerged, was that the students were bullying Phillips. In reality, Phillips and a few other Native men approached the boys first, in a clear attempt at provocation.

“The social media mob is a left-wing mob.” Massie said, “The right does not do this. It’s considered harassment if it comes from the right, and if it comes from the left, it’s just free speech – and there’s your double standard.”

Massie also admonished the left for moving their social media efforts into the real world, attempting to destroy the personal lives of the objects of their ridicule.

“What happens with the left, though, is they cross over into reality,” he said. “They migrate off of social media and they start calling the city of Covington to get tax records and figure out where people live. They go to their houses, and figure out where they work, and try and get the parents fired. That’s the difference. I mean, we all know Twitter’s a dumpster fire, but they try and take that fire and spread it into real life. That’s what this is. This is bullying.”

Massie said that a prosecutor in northern Kentucky named Rob Sanders has already publicly warned the political left that it is against Kentucky law to threaten schools, and that there will be prosecutions for such actions. He described Sanders’ efforts in pushing back against the hate-filled mob as “admirable.”

Massie, who reserved judgment about the students until all of the facts came to light, also cautioned against jumping to conclusions when the mainstream press makes these types of accusations.

“It’s almost like this was a big psychology experiment – like freshman psychology 101,” he said. “You were told, before you saw the video, what you were watching so that when you watched the video, you completely fell for it. So, for instance, you were told before you watched this video that these kids were chanting ‘build the wall,’ and you can’t make out the words. You assume, yeah, they’re chanting ‘build the wall.’ In fact, they were not. You were told this kid was smirking, and that he had gotten in the face of this Native American. But that’s not the case. This kid was smiling – he was trying to diffuse the situation and broadcast to his friends that he wasn’t feeling threatened, so they didn’t need to feel threatened either. And then you were told that these kids surrounded that older man, and that was not the case.”

“But if you were told all these things, and then you watched the video, it was hard not to fall for it,” Massie continued. “But after watching the longer videos I know that Nick Sandmann didn’t do anything wrong. He did what most 16-year-olds don’t have the composure to do, which is to diffuse the situation that was not of his own making and was a situation he’d never been in before. Everything he’d been taught in his life prepared him to do the right thing, and that’s what he did.”

“They’re raising our future leaders at Covington Catholic,” Massie finished. “These are kids of very high character. Many of them are going places. So I guess my main takeaway is to admonish, not just the left, because there are always going to be people on the left pandering to their base, but to admonish the Democrats who I know are reasonable, and the people in the middle who don’t associate with either party but form their own opinion, and even the people on the right who got spoofed by this, to just take a step back and wait a day before they form opinions next time, based on something in social media.”

Woke Leftists Upset Over Christian Organzation Setting Up Hospital for Coronavirus Patients

Published

on

Samaritan’s Purse, a charitable Christian organization that helps the poor and sick all over the world, has setup a temporary tent hopsital in New York City.

Most see this as an all around positive, but not radical LGBTQ activists and their allies.

Some Leftists in New York have complained of the organization’s traditional Christian beliefs on sexuality. They claim to believe that Samaritan’s Purse might treat LGBTQ patients with less consideration or care.

This nonsensical narrative reached Mayor Bill DeBlasio’s office, who has also now expressed concern. DeBlasio said,

I said immediately to my team that we had to find out ­exactly what was happening. Was there going to be an approach that was truly consistent with the values [of] New York City?

We’re going to send people over from [my] office to monitor. I’m very concerned to make sure this is done right. But if it is done right, of course, we need all the help we can get.

Samaritan’s Purse and its workers have done everything from risking their lives to serve Ebola patients in Africa to helping after tornadoes here in the states. They have also already been dealing with coronavirus in Italy, giving them much needed experience.

They are exactly who you want to show up in a time like this. The combination of experience, compassion, and dedication they have is very hard to match.

And no, they do not discrimate based on sexuality. They never have and there is no indication they ever will.

To suggest that they need to be monitored or that New York should be worried about their presense is not only unwarranted, it’s insulting.

DeBlasio is taking advantage of Samaritan’s Purse because he knows they, unlike him, are not utter degenerates. He knows that Samaritan’s Purse will do everything they can to help, despite knowing they are hated by the Mayor and his ilk.

This whole incident shows that Bill DeBlasio is a weak effiminate man who is more concerned with his public imagine than saving lives. He will accept the help, but insult those helpers, all while pretending he has displayed some sort of virtue.

This is outright bigotry, disguised with smooth talk.
