This might be the last Nick Sandmann blogge (today)

But don’t count on it

Is the news media biased? IMPLICITLY!

NBC, probably the most prejudiced of the three legacy networks (Chuck Todd), scored a big “Get” with Nick Sandmann, the boy from Covington Catholic high school with the “punchable face” who, it turns out, was confronted by the Native American drum pounder and not the other way around. (That was one long sentence!)

Here is the interviewer’s leading question (hat tip to Ann of Althouse): 

SAVANNAH GUTHRIE, NBC ‘TODAY’ HOST: Do you feel that you owe anybody an apology? Do you see your own faults in any way?

NICK SANDMANN, COVINGTON CATHOLIC STUDENT: As far as standing there, I had every right to do so. My position is that I was not disrespectful to Mr. Phillips. I respect him. I’d like to talk to him. I mean, in hindsight I wished we could have walked away and avoided the whole thing.

Notice: the kid looks much less “smirky.”
Hey, Blaska has yet to take a good picture.

Ann’s commenters are interesting. A sampling:

stevew said: “Do you feel that you owe anybody an apology? Do you see your own faults in any way?” Second question betrays a bias against him. I will watch more of this to see if that assessment is correct.

Phil 3:14 said: He should have just turned around. But, I have to keep reminding myself, he’s 16.

stevew said: Assessment of bias confirmed. Also confirmed that Phillips is an insufferable a* * *.

alanc709 said: Wish he had responded by asking her if the media owed them an apology.

Michael Fitzsimmons said: When do they interview the Black Hebrews?

rehajm said: Savannah Guthrie cried when Matt Lauer was fired for rape. Do you feel that you owe anybody an apology, Savannah? Do you see your own faults in any way?

Today’s Wall Street Journal:

Most of those who so eagerly maligned these boys will face no lasting consequences, while the boys themselves will always have to wonder, when they are turned down for a job or a school, whether someone had Googled their name and found only half this story. This is an ugly moment in America, all right, but there are few things uglier than a righteous leftist mob.

Blaska’s Bottom Line: Covington Catholic incident happened because ‘We’re desperate to get Trump out of office’, Joy Behar admitted on The View. You got to wonder how many high schools across the nation are re-assessing that spring trip to Washington D.C. The Las Vegas strip might be more wholesome.

    A few random observations;

    1) If you have enough melanin, racism, homophobia and antisemitism are unremarkable. If you are melanin deficient, and have the wrong hat, smirking is evidence you are a Nazi

    2) If you are a celebrity with the right politics, calling for kids to be doxxed and assaulted will be conspicuously ignored the media. You may do this comfortably assured of the tacit and explicit support from the political left.

    3) Calling for kids to be shot and schools to be attacked is entirely acceptable to Twitter.

    4) We will never ever reach accommodation with the left. These are people that believe calling for murder, assault and attacks on schools is the appropriate response to kids giving WTFs to a kook with a drum. They are telling us their intentions unambiguously. We’d best listen to them and act accordingly.

        How about the Northwestern black PhD student beaten, arrested for stealing his own car. That cost the cops (4) of them and their city 1.25 million. What happened to checking plates, talking to the driver; you know regular police stuff, before drawing guns and going nuts. The real funny thing is it all started with some busy-body old white woman calling 911, getting in her car, following him while talking to the cops on her phone. Her reason was “he was black and had on hoodie on.”

      I interpret the phrase “act accordingly” to mean blow a few heads off. It’s bound to happen anyway. If you keep prodding a dog long enough, no matter how good-natured it is, it will eventually bite you. The Left and their pimps in the MSM have been allowed to play their little game far too long without consequences.

        Not exactly what I had in mind. Such things are best avoided. What I meant was that right needs to quit pretending we’re not dealing with people that hate us, our culture and our nation. The regressive left has metastasized due to the feebleness of establishment conservatives, that needs to change.

        Though, given the level of vitriol from the left, keeping an eyes towards exactly who winds up in a big hole in a corn field if things go sideways probably isn’t a bad idea.

    Some of you might have seen the tweet (posted by someone whose name escapes me–probably some minor celebrity desperate for attention of any kind) featuring photos of Nick Sandmann and Brett Kavanaugh side by side. What prompts the rage of the tweeter is that they’re both …Brace yourself! …smiling. Apparently, that facial expression has now officially been deemed a manifestation of white male privilege. So keep the corners of your mouths firmly turned down at all times, or face the wrath of the perpetually outraged lefty loons.

      Then educate yourself before you keep denying any Trump campaign collusion with Russia. Netflix has a well done documentary about him: “Get Me Roger Stone.” He’s truly a long time, dirty tricks playing, GOP campaign scum. And DC lobbyist scum. A Mueller indictment couldn’t happen to a more deserving guy; at least until it’s Trump’s turn.
      What is your fixation with BHI? I’d never heard of them until this incident. They seem to be foaming at the mouth Christian nuts. Racists? Sure, sounds like it. Happy now? Go do your Roger Stone homework. It’ll be interesting to see (but no surprise) how you defend him.

    ABob, since I owed you for the BHI effort you made I did a quick survey of the Roger Stone arrest and I see how the FBI went up to his house like the Marines went up to Mount Suribachi. Stone must be a dangerous hombre. I also see that CNN just happened to have a crew there in the wee hours of the morning. What a coincidence.
    My take is that whether or not Mr. Stone handed Mr. Trump the presidency, with Russian help you assume, he certainly has the GAB Handbook that corrupt minions used to take down Scott Walker.
    The similarities are striking.

      How’s this going to turn out? Probably not well for Stone, Trump, and his family. Mueller seems to get a lot of guilty pleas and convictions.

          Oh but I do. Apparently I know more about your latest Acme Catalog issue than you. A CNN anchor asked the CNN reporter how he happened to be there (at 4 a.m.). “Reporters instinct” he answered. They noticed grand jury activity in DC on Thursday and realized that was unusual on a weekday so they waited in front of Mr. Stone’s house in Fort Lauderdale at 4 a.m. and surprise! the nice FBI gave them access.
          Strangely enough, no other reporters had the “instinct” because no one was there but CNN.
          A cynic might believe that the FBI “leaked” and/or CNN might misunderstand something about President Trump and stumble into some inadvertant “fake News.”
          But then you’d have to imagine the FBI breaking the law and CNN telling an untruth.

    The staggering hypocrisy of @AnonyBob specifically, and Lefty generally, continues apace.

    To wit:

    Career Über Lefty Andrew Sullivan: The Abyss Of Hate-v-Hate:

    (bolds caps mine throughout)
    “To put it bluntly: They were 16-year-olds subjected to verbal racist assault by grown men; and then the kids were accused of being bigots. It just beggars belief that the same liberals who fret about ‘micro-aggressions’ for 20-somethings were able to see 16-year-olds absorbing the worst racist garbage from religious bigots … and then express the desire to punch the kids in the face.

    HOW DID THIS GROTESQUE VERSION OF THE TRUTH become the central narrative for what seemed to be the entire class of elite journalists on Twitter? That’s the somewhat terrifying question.”

    And the coup de grâce kill shot:

    ”But (protected class/privileged group Black Hebrew Israelites) USING A BULLHORN to call Native Americans ‘SAVAGES’ and ‘DRUNKARDS AT THE CASINO’ to their faces a few minutes earlier on the same tape was not worth a mention?
