By now you've heard the radicle swing in the narrative of what happened at 'ground zero', last weekend.
The ecumenical effort to end abortion in the USA was largely sponsored by traditional Roman Catholic organizations. Covington is a suburb of the predominantly catholic Cincinnati metro area. the Catholic schools enjoy more public support than the public school systems.
Covington Catholic sponsored their annual bus trip to Washington for a weekend of events. The March for Life was just one of the educational events. The kids were then allowed to visit memorials and museums.
The kids pretty much kept their mouths shut and refused to even show offense. That led to the black speakers doubling down and trying even harder to create a conflict.
Phillips took his little drum and held it up within inches of a boy named Nick Sandmann. Without any friendly greeting or gesture, Phillips took his stick and began swinging it against the drum's skin. Some of the school students decided to get into the music and sort of chanted along.
Phillips went on for several minutes of staring down the boy and pounding loudly on the drum. The Indians and 'Black Hebrews' kept ramping up the rhetoric and racial insults of the students. Then they insulted the kids' Christian denomination. Not once did the kids fire back verbally. Nor would they run away from the aggressors. They just stood there and remained friendly and refused to 'take the bait'.
Many leftist media outlets humiliated themselves by jumping on a fake narrative. A few of the journalists later admitted their error. One such journalist (Julie Irwin) had the courage and character to public admit her failure. I recommend reading her retraction and learn from what she writes. Many of us on the right have made similar mistakes when we choose to react to a narrative we want to believe.
