Edit: BREAKING: Covington Kids Going To The White House
https://www.dailywire.com/news/42522/...

It is the perfect story for the left and fits the leftist made-up narrative of racist anti-Indian Trump loving white christian males so perfectly. Except...

The video below is NOT the viral video making all the main stream media news. It starts with the story everyone has been hearing, then this video shows what happened before the encounter.

vvvvv
BIG WARNING!!! There are lots of racial slurs in the video link below! It has stuff being said that gets people fired, kicked of internet sites and their credit revoked.
And it wasn’t from the catholic teens.

    The journalist who wished the teenagers to die has been fired:

    He should be in jail.

    "I don’t know what it says about me but I’ve truly lost the ability to articulate the hysterical rage, nausea, and heartache this makes me feel. I just want these people to die. Simple as that. Every single one of them. And their parents,” tweeted Abriss.

    What does it say about you? It says you are a demented hyena who should be locked away for good and never be let out.

      I have heard the word "snowflake" used a good deal over the past 12 months or so. This thing (journalist?) is the living embodiment of a snowflake. It reminds me of something Rand wrote in AS near the end -- I think it is where Dagny and Galt are talking after taking a good look at the enemy -- and they are a bit flabbergasted when they realize that the thing they are fighting is just a gauzy little puff of nearly nothingness.

    I first head of this as it was reported by the mainstream media - when it hit the airways yesterday as I sat on my couch. I watched what was reported. It consisted of the video, followed by the talking heads. What the talking heads said was so unrelated to the video that I said, "Honey. Can you come in here and tell me what I'm missing?" My wife watched it and said, "Oh my god." I thought, "Ok, I'm not hallucinating." Problem was...my young son saw it too. He's almost too young to glance through this window into how f'ed up our society really is...how skewed our trusted media is. Makes me sad for the kids these days...

    I am a first time poster and I am genuinely looking for a response that is representative of "Objectivism". I see a lot of name-calling, blaming, and references to "fake news". Is anyone able to analyze this situation in a manner that is truly Objective? If not, then how can Ayn Rand's philosophy be advanced?

    Can anyone provide me with a reference to a member who best represents genuine capitalism as described by the website?

      First, welcome bethanyball!

      Don't give up on the Gulch because you don't see a pure representation of Objectivist dialog or thought under one (or more) topic. Most of us here are fans of the Atlas Shrugged movies, which is why this site was originally formed, and are fans of Ayn Rand, but are mostly Objectivists "in the rough". I can only speak for myself here, but I consider myself more of an Objectivist in the making rather than the finished product. As a result I may offer my 2 cents in a non-objectivist way, but I'll be set straight if I really mess things up.

      Others in the Gulch are extremely versed in Ayn Rand and Objectivism, but don't always chime in on all topics. Stay with it and offer your views. The very fact you asked the question you did is important and I like having you here because of it.

      Best to create a new topic with this question.

      BTW, fake news or biased news is a very objective term for this topic.
      I do consider this to be a very important story in today’s world. Not because of the story, but because the stories behind the story.

        Rather than relying on what is reported, isn't it better to view as many of the videos as possible and piece together some sort of time line that provides a realistic picture of what took place. Americans would be a lot better off if they began to analyze, ask questions etc. rather than be brainwashed by what outside sources with obvious agendas. It was a situation where everyone involved reacted without looking at the situation objectively. I was hoping that this site would be different and practice Ayn Rand's philosophy. From what I've seen, it's just more of the left vs. right with both sides wearing blinders.

          That is what I tried to do, to a point, therefore this topic and topic video to show last weekends mass fake and biased news using very select clips to match their made-up narrative.

          You could call it damage control from the firestorm the MMM created.

          That's interesting. In my recent interactions with people who are in the mood for a political discussion I often find myself blurting out that I don't talk politics - but that I love to talk philosophy. But, Bethany...almost nobody knows how to do that anymore. This forum is about as good as you'll find in that regard. I occasionally point out the flawed premises that show up (ala Ayn Rand's "check your premises"). Some get it and some don't. Some topics are like religion.

          I hope you find some enjoyment here.

    The left-stream MSM is only reinforcing what they've been programmed to do since the mid '70s. That is spew and enforce the "New Jim Crow". That white boy obviously hasn't received the correct memo and gone through the required indoctrination process. He's supposed to be showing proper fealty and genuflect to his racial superiors, regardless of what idiocy they regurgitate. The poor creature's great sin of being born white, even more sinful as a male, even more sinful thinking for himself, even more sinful for wearing a MAGA hat in public, is more than enough to bring about the ire of his racial/gender superiors and burn him at the MSM stake just for existing and being there.

    Whatever a person is programmed with is their reality. These so called Israelites are perversions of Israelites. There are Black Jews who are actual descendants of the Tribes of Israel who have migrated to Israel from Ethiopia and other African countries. These yahoos are just racist blacks, who have appropriated the culture of the actual Israelites.

    They have been screaming their paranoid delusions on street corners for decades. I believe NYC finally banished them.as public disturbances.

    Finally the story told shortly before the confrontation,
    https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/ne...

    “But a longer video from a different angle shows that Philips was the one to approach the teenagers, taking a left on a landing along the stairway up the Lincoln Memorial and walking directly into the throng of students.
    Furthermore, video shows that long before Phillips arrived on the scene, a small group of Black Hebrew Israelites on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial yelling obscenities at passersbys, including the students who would eventually crowd the area, appear to be the ones who incited the confrontation.”

    When reality does not fit narrative.

    How do these people work up so much energy to stand out in public and scream at one another? No one is really listening. It doesn't make sense.

    Get a job.
    The commentary does not match the video reality.
    Another lame media attempt to place blame on anyone that expresses their opinion and opposes the statist left.
    I'd guess that neither side in the video understands they are being used as pawns by the media and the state.

    "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."

    "Best-selling author Reza Aslan tweeted that the high school junior had a “punchable face.” Former Democratic Party chief Howard Dean opined that Covington Catholic is “a hate factory.” GQ’s Nathaniel Friedman urged people to “Doxx ‘em all,” i.e., make their personal information public. "

    Remember Dean? The hysterically screaming Dean during his presidential campaign?

    Well, the same Dean is playing ethics, claiming Covington is a "hate factory".

    He has no problems with the colleges across the US, like Berkeley, where students are indoctrinated with hate by their professors, physically attacking speakers they disagree with, and banning anyone who is even remotely conservative.

    Yeah, that is where the left is now. Wonder how long the brainwashed crowd supports them?

    Does anyone get the impression that these "righteous leftist mobs" are the modern day reincarnations of the lynch mob of old, when the townspeople took justice in their own hands and grabbed the person they deemed guilty without proof, to hang him?

    On other forums there are leftists actually apologizing for being wrong about these white Christian male teens. They are saying that the doxing and death threats were not needed.
