By now most everyone knows that the Covington Catholic High School boys didn't mob and harass a revered "tribal elder" at the Lincoln Memorial following the March for Life on January 18. The boys were actually targeted and harassed by two groups of protesters: the Black Hebrew Israelites (who hurled hateful, racial, homophobic slurs at them) and Native American activists from the American Indian Movement, led by "tribal elder" Nathan Phillips.
A nationwide media frenzy erupted after the Covington boys were falsely accused of mocking Phillips, spurring hundreds of threats against the school and the school's students from across the country by phone, email, and social media.
Not everyone who helped perpetuate the initial fake story has retracted their claims or apologized, and lawyers for the Covington families are working hard to make sure people are held accountable.
A new fourteen-minute video of the incident in Washington, D.C., last month emphasizes the starring role Phillips took in spreading the fraudulent narrative and the supporting roles the uncritical media took in smearing the innocent kids.
The video was released Saturday by L. Lin Wood, the high-profile attorney who was retained by the family of Nicholas Sandmann, the 16-year-old who smiled at Phillips while the activist banged on a drum and chanted in his face. The initial viral video clip of that confrontation spurred widespread condemnation and death threats against the 16-year-old. Wood's specialty is bringing "aggressive libel and slander suits against media organizations," reportedly.
"Two weeks ago, the mainstream media, politicians, church officials, commentators, & celebrities rushed to judgment to wrongfully condemn, threaten, disparage & vilify Nick Sandmann based solely on a few seconds of an out-of-context video clip. It only takes 15 minutes to learn the truth," Wood said in the YouTube description.

Hitting back hard.
The only way to fight the SJW progressives.
I wonder is Daddy Soros is going to pick up the tab for Uncle Tom Tom.
You have to load some extension to watch it? Is it on youtube?
” Nicholas Sandmann, the 16-year-old who smiled at Phillips while the activist banged on a drum and chanted in his face.”
I feel sorry for Sandmann, because he had to breathe what was coming out of “Chief Ten Teeth” Phillips mouth. As they say, Liberals talk so much $hit you don’t know whether to give them a breath mint or toilet paper!
Agree. The penalties need to be severe. Everybody feels the penalty when they have to pay.
I’m hesitant loading the media extension. I wish the video was on You Tube.
Well said. We don’t call them DemonCRAPS for nothing.
Chief Sh*tting Bull will owe heap big wampum.
It actually is on youtube.

What about all of the students of that school. What about the school itself (the Roman Catholic Church really shot itself in the OTHER foot on that one).
See the link I just posted.
