Covington’s Catholic student Nicholas Sandmann has offered his support to 18-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse, who has previously been slandered by left-wing media as a racist supporter of white domination.
In a Daily Mail article, Sandmann recalled the horror of being a teenager, the worst imaginable notation that people like institutional media can imagine, offering a kind of kinship with Kyle Rittenhouse.
The attacks on Kyle came from the national news media, just as they came against me. They came quickly, without hesitation, because Kyle was an easy object they could paint the way they wanted.
This is a problem in the liberal media in the United States. They want to get the story first, get the most views, make the most money, and advance the agenda of liberal patrons. These outlets cover themselves, if they are wrong, with small footnotes at the end of long articles that make it clear that new information has appeared and that they have updated their coverage.
News should not be an ever-changing scoreboard. The news is about news that contains facts that don’t need to be corrected. But the liberal media does not do this. The liberal media is rushing to report first.
Sandmann continued to rebuke politicians and media figures such as President Joe Biden and Lebron James, and told them all to remain silent before rushing to court. President Biden, for example, referred to Rittenhouse as a “supporter of white supremacy.” Sandmann said:
In my experience, the threat of death, the feeling of not having a future, and the fact that millions of people hate you is enough to change you in many concrete ways and permanently. Make no mistake: even the strongest people can’t resist the mental impact when the media war machine targets you.
After exploring the possibility of Kyle Rittenhouse suing the department’s media, Sandmann expressed his sympathy:
Right now, I’d like to use my platform to tell Kyle that I’m here for you, and if you ever want to contact me, I’m pretty much the only one of our age who has an idea of how the media treats you. The way the media has treated you is awful and you don’t have to face it alone.
Sandmann was brought into the national spotlight in 2019 when mainstream news channels such as The Washington Post and CNN said he and several of his fellow students harassed Nathan Phillips, an Indian man, while attending March for Life in DC. Phillips told the media that the boys in the “Make America Great Again” hat blocked his path and mocked him with racial slander.
The story seemed somewhat plausible at first as the viral video showed Phillips around them, cheering as he drummed Sandmann’s grinning face on the drum. However, the story took a dramatic turn when other videos emerged showing Phillips approaching the boys. The video also revealed that an extremist group called Black Hebrew Israelites at the time mocked the boys with racial slander.
Without completely investigating the matter, the news channels largely followed Phillips’ account of what happened, blackmailing the boys into racism. Sandmann was probably to blame, and media outlets like CNN assistant Reza Aslan opposed Sandman. “Honest question. Have you ever seen a more striking face than this child?” Aslan tweeted at the time.
Disney’s “Beauty and the Beast” producer Jack Morrissey also said he wanted to throw the kids at the chopper. Fargostyle. “” #MAGChildren shout their hats inside the chipper first, “Morrissey tweeted.
