Lynch-happy liberals and how they targeted those Catholic kids

I don’t know how to break this to my Israeli readers, those who imagine us high, handsome and invincible – but America is falling apart.

It was another lousy, drowsy, dreary day in America, if, that is, you took a chance to read or watch the news.

Somewhere out there people are going to school, going to work, raising families, leading ordinary lives in the pursuit of happiness.

They keep doing it all so privately, so quietly, so decently, you wouldn’t know we’re at war for the heart and soul of the country.

I don’t know how to break this to my Israeli readers, those who imagine us high, handsome and invincible – but America is falling apart.

It’s been happening in many ways and I am not talking football and how Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints got cheated by a bad decision from an official who must have been, if you ask me, a radical leftist. That was big. You can catch the FULL picture in all the replays over the internet.

Suppose, on the other hand, something else happens, outside of sports, but all you get is HALF a picture?

You get half a story.

That’s what happened during a stand-off near the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C., when pictures showed a group of Catholic high school kids hassling a Native American.

The image went viral and so did the left. Not a moment to pause for accuracy or decency. The New York Post’s Michael Goodwin tells more here.

Liberals needed no more information. They had enough to call for these kids to be executed. Literally so. The calls for a lynching came from politicians, journalists and entertainers.

Yes, Kathy Griffin again. She jumped right in. So did Rep. Ilhan Omar. Joy Behar on “The View” admitted it was more than a rush to judgment; it was a rush to get Trump.

The high school kids, from Covington, Ky., were mostly white, male, and Trump supporters. They’ll hang you for that alone.

Worse, they were Catholic and – a learning moment for me; apparently, the left has no tolerance for them along with the Jews.

Truly, I thought it was only me and the rest of my people who are so irksome to liberals.


They were Catholic and – a learning moment for me; apparently, the left has no tolerance for them along with the Jews.
We know the Democrat Party has been on a furious pace to demonize Israel and Jews elsewhere. I’ve written about it enough.

How to say this; that it is a relief to know we are not alone. We’ve got company – a big world of Christians.

That is quite a number for liberals to scorn – 70 million Catholics. What do they do wrong?

Five or six million Jews in America – what did we do?

Laura Ingraham, on Fox News, herself Catholic, blasted away at the entire leftist movement, including Catholic leftists who got the Covington story so wrong.

Yes, wrong. Completely wrong. Just the opposite happened. Further videos showed the kids being hassled by gangs of radical leftists.

The kids were the grown-ups. The kids were the victims.

Gradually, the truth has been making the rounds. But the truth will never catch up to the lies that were spread coast to coast…and caused so much bitterness.

This just in – Queen Pelosi has nixed President Trump’s State of the Union Address at the House of Representatives.

Politicians can’t be trusted.  The media can’t be believed. The people stumble in the dark.

Just another day in the U.S.A.
