Fake News Reigns

It is no longer enough for those on the left to rewrite history, they now feel compelled to edit—or entirely fabricate—current events. Tragically, they hold all of societies power and influence centers, dominating academia, the media, entertainment, Hollywood, mainline Christian churches, Big Tech and corporate offices. This affords them the ability to do just that.
One could even say that instances of fake news (that the media so vehemently denies exists) are happening fast and furiously now, with apologies to the Obama administration. BuzzFeed disgraced itself again by reporting that President Trump had pressured Michael Cohen into giving false testimony. Then, Nick Sandmann and some fellow Covington (Kentucky) Catholic High School students were accused of confronting and mocking a Native-American man at the Lincoln Memorial. Media outlets and personalities piled on, saying the students, many of whom were wearing “MAGA” hats, were acting in a racist fashion and were trying to intimidate the man. They immediately-- and gleefully-- tried and convicted the youngsters in the court of opinion. Their clucking and tut-tutting, sad shakes of the head and other virtue-signaling behaviors let the world know these monsters were typical, bigoted, radical right-wing Trump supporters from coal country.
Unfortunately for the unbiased media, complete and unbroken video soon turned up proving that the students did not confront or harass the man, who was banging a drum and chanting. In reality, the man-- and other Native American protestors from the Indigenous People’s March—came towards the students. Sandmann said the man came towards him, stopping only inches away from his face, locking eyes with him and playing his drum the whole time. He stated: “I never interacted with this protestor. I did not speak to him. I did not make any hand gestures or other aggressive moves. To be honest, I was startled and confused as to why he had approached me. I believed that by remaining motionless and calm, I was helping to diffuse the situation.”
What’s more, the students, who were attending the March for Life, were also being loudly taunted by protestors from a group called “Black Hebrew Israelites,” leading them to ask a teacher/chaperone if they could begin their school spirit chants to “counter the hateful things that were being shouted at our group.” Hateful things like “crackers,” “faggots” and “pedophiles,” to name a few. Sandmann said that he never heard any student say “anything hateful or racist at anytime,” and that “Assertions to the contrary are simply false.”
Sandmann also noted that he and his family have received death threats and vicious insults from “the social media mob that has formed over this issue.” He added, “I am mortified that so many people have come to believe something that did not happen—that students from my school were chanting or acting in a racist fashion toward African Americans or Native Americans.”
Sadly, Nick, many people are quick to believe fake news…as long as it validates their pre-conceived notions and strokes their need to feel superior (due to their deep-seated inferiority complexes).
Belatedly, some in the media admitted that “the incident did not take place as originally reported.” They should have added, “Though we wish it had.”

            (Bung, bung, bung, bung)
Mr. Sandmann bring us a dream
Give him a pair of eyes with an “I hate you" gleam
Give him a steely heart like Mussolini
And a crazy stare like Scaramucci
Mr. Sandmann, someone to scold (someone to scold)
Someone racist for our viewers to behold
So please now before we livestream
Mr. Sandmann, give us…please, please, please
Mr. Sandmann, give us……our theme!
(Bung, bung, bung, bung)
