One has to wonder who appointed THAT judge. This is the bias, and the entire deep state machine in action, try to use the legal system and get bizarre results. Funny who owns the Post. Funny YouTubers could get the whole story in less than 12 hours when it happened, funny the Post was unable to report "fairly". Yet, it seems so easy to find Judges that will shutdown long standing federal law, and then SCOTUS turns them over and says it was ok to do.

    If you read the judge's verdict, however, he fails to address the real complaint: that of willful misrepresentation (ie slander/libel). He invented a "right" of the papers to print whatever they wanted despite libel and slander laws which specifically address this. I am confident this is going to get overturned on appeal, as the ruling in this was ridiculously devoid of any real legal reasoning.

      That was my thought when I read through it, it made no sense, as it never justified the decision beyond "I was told to do it, so I rejected it and made up some stuff"....

    Let me see if I have this right! A grown man cannot walk around a standing unthreatening student? Really? This sends a message to our youth. I'm so thrilled the WAPO editor is so happy.

      The ridiculous part of that argument is that the entire school crowd was standing to one side. If the agitator Nathan Phillips had any real intent of going to the monument, he would have headed in a different direction than directly at the students. This is easy to see from the compiled footage shown by Glenn Beck. Phillips initiated the encounter and Nicholas just happened to be the one who ended up in front of Phillips.

      But that isn't really the issue at all - and this judge knows it. The real issue was how the event was covered by the press and their intentional defamation of Sandmann.

    The judge was a Jimmy Carter appointee.
    I heard it was because they supposedly did not name him. Also 1st amendment was cited. The Case may be appealed. There are many other targets in the legal actions.

    And keep in mind, part of this is "You MIGHT be able to sue us, but you had BETTER have very deep pockets. Because we will BOTH be appealing everything. Meanwhile, the punishment was done!"

    Agreeing with EVERYONE that this was CLEARLY a hit piece against "MAGA" which is a hit piece against Political Affiliation.

    We have people USING this as an example as to why we SHOULD NOT let our kids wear MAGA stuff...

    After this, I upgraded my MAGA Hat to A MAGA Bathing Suit... Because it's much harder to remove! Screw 'EM!
