Nicholas Sandmann, along with his fellow classmates from Covington Catholic High School, were standing quietly while waiting for a bus. Nicholas, and some of his classmates, were wearing ” Make America Great Again ” hats. MAGA hats are worn by individuals to show support for President Donald Trump.
A group of African American men who call themselves Hebrew Israelites began shouting vile and reprehensible racial slurs at the Covington High School students. To make matters worse, Nathan Phillips who claims to be a Native American activist, walked up to Nicholas Sandmann and began beating a drum in Mr. Sandmann’s face.
The parents of Nicholas Sandmann have filed a defamation lawsuit against The Washington Post newspaper. The suit seeks $250 Million in damages claiming that The Washington Post ” targeted and bullied ” Nicholas in order to embarrass President Trump.
Having watched this video five times, it is belief of this website that The Post engaged in a vile form of ” McCarthyism ” in collusion with CNN and NBC and others to attack, vilify, and threaten an innocent 16 year old school student.
L. Lin Wood is the Sandmann’s lead attorney. WWW.Sanityandsense.com believes that this legal action will become one of the most important court cases in the past 100 years. This website finds it difficult to believe that The Washington Post can mount any reasonable excuse for their vile and reprehensible actions.
This court case could redefine how media organizations collect and disseminate news. Jeff Bezos, CEO of Amazon, bought The Washington Post in 2013. Sanityandsense.com continues to support the rights of responsible free speech, but this website believes that Bezos greatly abused his Constitutional rights of free speech to promote a political agenda at the expense of an innocent 16 year old high school student.
