Nick Sandmann Wasn’t Supposed to Survive. He Was Meant to End Up Like Mike Adams.
The Stream ^ | 7-25-2020 | John Zmirak

Nick Sandmann just turned 18 years old. And he’s settling a $250 million lawsuit with major media outlets that libeled him.

I was prepping Robert Oscar Lopez’s powerful piece on Mike Adams for publication when I realized something chilling. Reading how the left hounded that talented writer to suicide (if indeed he wasn’t murdered) I heard in my head the media headline that never ran. Thanks be to God.

“Racist Ringleader, Nicholas Sandmann, Dead at 17.” That’s what the media mob wanted. They as good as admitted it. When powerful reporters call a young man’s face “the most punchable in America,” that’s what they mean. When columnists and activists propose “doxing” him, contacting every college he ever applies to, or job he tries to get, that’s what they mean.

When Sandmann’s own Catholic bishop threw him to the wolves, when his school suspended him, when “conservative” columnists at National Review and other venues denounced him as “bigoted,” they were writing him off for life. They were branding him on his face with the most destructive charge available in America. The charge that’s now burning cities and getting Trump supporters murdered.

Smiling While White All for what crime, exactly? For waiting for a bus after a pro-life demonstration. And smiling while white. For Sandmann standing his ground, when some “Indian tribal elder” confronted him with a war drum. Ah, but Sandmann and his friends were supposed to give way. They should have taken a knee. Maybe flattened themselves to form a human red carpet, so the “tribal elder” could walk all over them. You know, as cops in Portland and Chicago are apparently ordered to do, in the face of violent mobs.

One leftist after another pointed out Sandmann’s unforgivable sin. That he was smiling. He didn’t look terrified, guilt-struck, or even enraged. He was calm, confident, and amiable. Perhaps those character traits are now part of “white privilege,” as the Smithsonian now explains. I read at least a dozen columnists or reporters expatiate on that smile, comparing Sandmann to settlers who slaughtered Indians, or concentration camp guards...

“...That he was smiling.”


I recall the word they used was ‘smirk’.

I do believe that we are. Just a different battlefield, ammunition and soldiers

He certainly was an odd target for leftist hate. A young nobody who did nothing more than stand around and smile. I hope he invests his money wisely.

What is the story on Mike Adams.

All I read was that he passed away.

A real punch in the gut.

Lord God, please give Your angels charge over Nick Sandmann and his family to keep them in all their ways. Avenge the wrong-doing perpetrated against him and help him to be at peace. Satisfy him with long life and make him a mighty witness of Your love. In the Name of Jesus, Amen.

Following Sandmann’s story. Just tried to add a keyword.

And I got, “Sorry, your account is too new to use this feature.”

Is anyone else getting the same message?

I hope conservatives will think of this, and Mike Adams, whenever they’re tempted to brush off cyber bullying with a smug “just don’t use Facebook, problem solved”.

Let's not forget that “Indian tribal elder”, faux Vietnam Vet is a fraud...something the media failed to report in the beginning...Shame on the Bishop for being so weak and I would guess is also a religious fraud.

I saw several posts on DU talking about how much they’d like to punch him in the face. Such violent, hateful people. But I’m sure they mean well.
