The Covington Catholic schoolboy's interview with NBC.

Nick Sandmann looks very different — much younger — in this video:



Via Real Clear Politics:
SAVANNAH GUTHRIE, NBC 'TODAY' HOST: Do you feel that you owe anybody an apology? Do you see your own faults in any way?

NICK SANDMANN, COVINGTON CATHOLIC STUDENT: As far as standing there, I had every right to do so. My position is that I was not disrespectful to Mr. Phillips. I respect him. I'd like to talk to him. I mean, in hindsight I wished we could have walked away and avoided the whole thing.

Is it coincidence that it was Kentucky Fried Movie?

"Robert, are you seriously claiming that a bunch of folks who are talking about beating up these kids are 'republicans?'"

No, I said nothing of the kind.

"They really haven’t changed much, have they?"

Yes. The people who were Democrats then are Republicans now.


Pretty revealing. In reality the people who were Democrats then are dead now.

This kind of nonsense should teach people that group analysis is invalid. Instead it apparently teaches them if you avoid thinking at all you don't risk uncovering inconvenient and discrediting logical flaws.

Strangely they seem to think this is a good outcome.

Robert.... The democrat party is the party of racial hatred. 100 years ago they hated blacks, now they hate whites.
Their ideology hasn’t changed. Republicans stood against discrimination based on race 100 years ago, and they stand against it today. They haven’t changed either.

Hyphenated American said...

Rick, the ideology of the democrat party hasn’t changed.....

Freder is convinced the kids are nazis. Freder. They'd never been to DC before, They were waiting for thier bus exactly where they were told to wait.
Is it so importtant to you and your idology to paint these kids as perpetrators. Are you so immature you need to destroy these young people on your narrative alter?
They're kids, Freder. For high school kids the deported theselves well. Why don't you follow their example and try acting like an adult.

Freder Frederson said...

Freder is convinced the kids are nazis.

Where did I say that? There is a vast gulf between being an obnoxious jerk (which is what I did call them) and a nazi.

If you don't believe that the vast majority of teenage boys, especially when they are in a large group, will frequently act like obnoxious jerks, then you are the one who doesn't know how to act like an adult. I look back at some of the things I did in high school and college, and think to myself, "what a little asshole".

As for comporting themselves well, the jury is still out on that one. The audio doesn't tell us what they were chanting but school cheers in response to vicious racial and sexual slurs does seem very likely. And there were definitely some tomahawk chops going on in the background. I find it very unlikely that the tomahawk chop is part of the sports cheers where the school mascot is a colonel. It makes no sense at all.

Hyphenated American said...

“I told you, they should have all walked over to the Vietnam Veterans' Memorial until the buses came.”

Are you saying no white people are allowed where they were? Only black racists and fake Vietnam veterans?
Or maybe you think the police should have kicked out the black hate group?

Hyphenated American said...

So,these kids were no worse than any other kids....


“And there were definitely some tomahawk chops going on in the background. I find it very unlikely that the tomahawk chop is part of the sports cheers where the school mascot is a colonel. It makes no sense...”

I would compare these kids with a bunch of black kids in big cities who attack elderly people and steal things from the stores. A lot of videos on that. And I imagine if this big a crowd of black youths met 3-4 KKK activists, who are screaming obscenities at them, I am sure the “tomahawk chop’ would be the least of the problem...

Yet somehow the media is upset with these white kids and want them beaten up.

Is this what they call “white privilege”?

I don't understand how much attention this is still getting when we should be addressing the ringworm epidemic.

Freder Frederson said...

Are you saying no white people are allowed where they were?

I am not saying that at all. Again, you are twisting my words.

There are also lots of videos of white crowds attacking groups of blacks, and going further back, photos of people having picnics after a lynching with the victims still hanging from a tree in the background. What is your point?

Earlier on I was accused of having low standards for people of color. When is someone going to call you on this?

Rusty said...

Freder @ 5:11
I watched the whole video. They weren't obnoxious.

Freder Frederson said...

I watched the whole video. They weren't obnoxious.

You also claimed that I called these kids nazis, which I never did. So forgive me if I don't put a whole lot of stock in your perceptive abilities.

Hyphenated American said...

Freder:

You said the kids had to leave the area. You never explained why.

There are no “videos” in the last 18 years of white kids attacking blacks - or at least there are very, very few of them.
But today, there is plenty of info on the violence from the blacks. In fact, the murder ratio (black on white versus white on black) is about 6 to 1 if not even 10 to 1.

I believe all people, independent of their color, should be treated equally. The media went berserk because of a white boy smiling. On the other side there a plethora of stories of black crime, and the media ignores it.

Hyphenated American said...

Freder, do you think the fake Vietnam veteran was obnoxious? How about the folks he brought with him, who were screaming at kids? Were they also obnoxious? Do you agree that “Black Hebrews” are a hate group?

Drago said...

Freder: "You also claimed that I called these kids nazis, which I never did"

Oh, so you're the one lefty/LLR who didn't call them Nazi's.

Congratulations....but don't expect any prizes for that from the Inga's/LLR Chuck's of the world.

Drago said...

Freder: "If you don't believe that the vast majority of teenage boys, especially when they are in a large group, will frequently act like obnoxious jerks, then you are the one who doesn't know how to act like an adult."

You are not allowed to say this about any group of teenagers who can be associated with the left, anywhere at anytime for any reason.

The Parkland nuts were declared off-limits even though they were calling all 2nd Amendment supporters Nazi's and murderers and needed to have their Constitutional rights taken away.

I haven’t seen the broad conservative coalition as fired up about a story since Kavanaugh. Pretty interesting.

Let me get this straight- racial/racist activists confront, harass and hurl racist epithets at a group of children of another racial group who are standing, waiting for a bus. Then a second bunch of activists representing a third racial group march over to the children, confronting them in their midst while beating drums, and then lie about the reason (their excuse) for the racial confrontation

One of the children keeps a bemused look on his face while all this hostile racial confrontation is going on....and the child is the villain?

Now the Lincoln memorial is a public place and all three groups were exercising their rights of protest and free speech that day- but only one group did so fairlyvrespectfully and with reasonable judgement- the children. Could you imagine how the press would have handled this if an alt right group of whites hurled racial epithets at a group of African-American children wearing BLM caps, and then a group of Tea Partiers drummed their way into the group of children? Doesn't bear thinking about.

The hypocrisy, lack of self-awareness and greed (monetizing clicks and gathering chits for "virtue" and "right thinking") of media types is abominable.
