Neo-Neocon: Nathan Phillips Proveably Lied About the Covington Kids, and Maliciously. Why Is The Media Completely Ignoring This?

To be honest, I think she knows why.

But it's a question worth asking rhetorically.

She notes that the media has, of course, been very reluctant to correct their slanderous lies at all, and where they have backtracked, it has been equivocal and at the margins.

What about the proveable lies "Vietnam Vet Recon Ranger" Nathan Philips told about the boys to get this hate-pile started?

Is this a banana, or is this an apple? Are they even pretending to care about the truth any longer?

That is also rhetorical, of course.

It was Phillips himself who quite early on, during his Saturday interview with CNN that set the original tone and was widely disseminated, gave the following description of the Covington boys:
It looked like these young men were going to attack [the Black Israelites]. They were going to hurt them. They were going to hurt them because they didn't like the color of their skin. They didn't like their religious views. They were just here in front of the Lincoln -- Lincoln is not my hero, but at the same time, there was this understanding that he brought the (Emancipation Proclamation) or freed the slaves, and here are American youth who are ready to, look like, lynch these guys. To be honest, they looked like they were going to lynch them. They were in this mob mentality.

That is not some disagreement about who went up to whom, or whether the wall was mentioned by the boys, or what caps some of them wore. This is an extremely defamatory statement by a political agitator, designed to shape perceptions that the boys were vicious racists with a killer instinct. The language is purposefully inflammatory and of the harshest variety.

It is a lie, and unless Phillips is clinically insane and out of touch with reality (something I donít believe is the case), it is a knowing and purposeful lie about a bunch of teenagers who were minding their own business. It is a lie so egregious, so foul, that I really lack words to describe the depth and depravity of that lie.

And as far as I can see, just about everyone is ignoring it now.

Including people on the right, she points out. As for my own reason for not stressing this: Well, I didn't see anyone collect up his lies into such a persuasive post before!

BTW, she has more of his flagrant deliberate smears, but I'm not going to steal the whole post.

She also mentions that he can be sued, except for the fact he looks like a smelly homeless bum with no money. But ah, she notes, there is every possibility that this was a put-up Information Operation from jump street, and some discovery might reveal who the people behind this op were.

I'm going to be linking him too much today -- it just works out that way -- but Tim Pool has video of Nathan Phillips' vicious, deliberate lies. Including one that Neo-Neocon doesn't mention, with Phillips claiming that Sandmann "slid to the right, slid to the left" to remain in front of him, blocking his movement. The video, of course, shows that this is a complete lie.

That video gets into the many Blue-Checks calling for violence against the Covington Kids, a point I'll get into more later.
