You may recall the MAGA hat-wearing high school kid from Kentucky being falsely accused of taunting a Native American protester in D.C. last year. As is the relentless habit of the liberal media, the story was blown way out of proportion, and as would be expected, the confrontation didn’t quite happen in the way it was portrayed.
Nick Sandmann, now a graduate of Covington Catholic High School in Kentucky, finally received his long-awaited chance to set the record straight. And boy did he ever.
As an invited speaker at the 2020 RNC, Sandmann walked straight up to the microphone, and without hesitation, clearly and concisely let it be known that he was not the bad guy he was made out to be. He reconfirmed his support of Donald Trump and blasted what he called the deep-rooted bias of the anti-conservative press.
As Sandmann recalled the negative allegations he and his classmates were forced to endure, he boldly stated, “My life changed forever in that one moment. The full war machine of the mainstream media revved up into attack mode. They did so without ever researching the full video of the incident, without ever investigating … or without ever asking me for my side of the story.”
Sandmann recently settled two multi-million-dollar news defamation of character lawsuits with CNN and the Washington Post. “And do you know why? Because the truth wasn’t important. Advancing their anti-Christian, anti-Conservative, anti-Donald Trump narrative was all that mattered. And if advancing their narrative ruined the reputation and future of a teenager from Covington, Kentucky … so be it. That will teach him not to wear a MAGA hat!”
He is currently in the process of settling similar lawsuits against four more news agencies who unjustifiably threw him under the bus, and from what has been seen thus far, he is certain to win those cases as well.
News reporters and commentators jumped the gun as they quickly labeled Sandmann and his high school buddies as racist villains. But this was only after viewing one video. As other videos surfaced, taken from different angles, it became evident the boys were not at fault. Also as one would expect, the initial story was never recanted.
“I learned that what was happening to me had a name,” Sandmann said. “It was called being canceled. As in annulled. As in revoked. As in made void. Canceled is what’s happening to people around this country who refuse to be silenced by the far left. Many are being fired, humiliated, or even threatened. Often, the media is a willing participant.”
He followed up with, “But I wouldn’t be canceled. I fought back hard to expose the media for what they did to me and won a personal victory. While much more must be done, I look forward to the day that the media returns to providing balanced, responsible, and accountable news coverage.”
“I believe we must join with a president who will challenge the media to return to objective journalism. And together, I believe we must all embrace our First Amendment rights and not hide in fear of the media or from the tech companies or the outrage mob, either. This is worth fighting for. This is worth voting for. This is what President Donald Trump stands for. Thank you all for listening to me tonight.”
It’s fair to say, at least in the case of this young Kentucky resident who did nothing wrong, justice has been served. But because of the stigma now attached to his name, Sandmann will forever be subjected to the slings and arrows of those who will forever side with the lying media, rather than the truth.
We haven’t heard the last from this young man. He may have had his moment to display the media for what they really are, but he is by no means done. It seems a future in politics would befit him well, and he certainly off to a rip-roaring start.
Sandmann took a timely pause before making one final statement. “And one more thing,” he said as he pulled a bright red MAGA hat from his rear pocket and proudly placed it on his head, “Let’s make America great again!”
