SHAME: CNN and the NY Times, along with an avalanche of left-wing activists, pounced. Author Reza Aslan told his 287,000 followers: “Have you ever seen a more punchable face than this kid’s?” Death threats ensued. The kids’ families have now been threatened. Famous musicians were encouraging their followers to track down the students and punch them. One of the people who issued a threat to the children lives in their neighborhood. Left-wing activists are now publishing the home addresses and phone numbers of the kids’ families and urging people to destroy their lives, rescind their college acceptance letters… and ruin their future careers. But there’s more… Some of the loudest voices condemning these kids were Catholics! Including a famous Jesuit priest who regularly condemns others for their lack of compassion and mercy. Regrettably, even the Covington Catholic school and their local bishop issued statements critical of the kids — though we hope and expect some of these statements may soon be revised or retracted.It all started when four Black Hebrew Israelites, a radical religious group centered on black identity, approached the Covington Catholic students and began heckling them with anti-gay slurs — for almost an hour. In response, the students tried to be positive, and began singing school spirit songs. That’s when activist Nathan Phillips approached the Covington Catholic students.
