Thank goodness Rep. Massie is getting behind this because the media is absolutely screwing over these kids.
(1/5) I was uncomfortable when I saw the video & description that first went viral, so I understand the initial reactions to the CovCath video. I chose to wait for more facts before responding because the narrative did not match what I know to be the character of these students.— Thomas Massie (@RepThomasMassie) January 20, 2019
(2/5) The honorable and tolerant students of Covington Catholic School came to DC to advocate for the unborn and to learn about our nation’s Capitol. What they got was a brutal lesson in the unjust court of public opinion and social media mobs.— Thomas Massie (@RepThomasMassie) January 20, 2019
(3/5) I’ve now watched over an hour of other videos from 4 different cameras of the incident in front of the Lincoln Memorial. I urge everyone to watch the other videos before passing judgement. Would you have remained that composed at that age under those circumstances?— Thomas Massie (@RepThomasMassie) January 20, 2019
(4/5) In the face of racist and homosexual slurs, the young boys refused to reciprocate or disrespect anyone. Even when taunted by homophobic bigots, which was obviously bewildering to them, they insulted no one.— Thomas Massie (@RepThomasMassie) January 20, 2019
This is basically what conclusion we came to. The media is running crazily with anything the left says about this story.
But because Massie is on it, they’re forced to report what he’s saying too:
Good for him. I wish more politicians would jump on board….
