Catholic Diocese FINALLY Clears Covington Kids of Wrong Doing in Washington D.C. Incident

The Covington Diocese hired Greater Cincinnati Investigation, Inc., to look into the incident and the firm’s investigation has 100 percent exonerated the kids.

After its immediate — and wrongheaded — accusation that the Covington teens were racist, the Catholic Diocese of Covington, Kentucky, finally reversed course after a deep dive investigation showed that the kids were utterly innocent of charges that they engaged in racist attacks on blacks and Native Americans during their trip last month to Washington D.C.

You’ll recall last month when a chopped and misleading video began burning up the Internet leading liberals to claim that a group of Catholic school boys who were in Washington D.C. to attend the March for Life had “mocked” a group of Native Americans, one of whom was a “Vietnam veteran.”

Within hours the Catholic Bishop of Covington attacked his own constituents as being “racists” and condemned the boys. Instead of waiting to see what really happened, Bishop Roger J. Foys thoroughly condemned the boys.

It took days, but Foys finally backtracked from his ignorant proclamation and said he would launch an investigation to find out what really happened.

Before the investigation, Foys apologized saying, “Based on what the video clip showed we condemned the actions of students who engaged in the alleged disrespect and promised to investigate the matter.”

“Since that time other video clips,” Foys continued, “some of much longer duration — have surfaced. Once these went viral some of the very same people who put tremendous pressure on us to condemn the actions of the students now wanted a retraction from anyone who had previously issued a statement critical of them. All this was based again on a video.”

Now the investigation is concluded, and Foys is forced to wipe the egg off his face.

The Covington Diocese hired Greater Cincinnati Investigation, Inc., to look into the incident and the firm’s investigation has 100 percent exonerated the kids.

The report found that the kids were the ones harassed, not the Native Americans. The kids were also harassed by a group of black activists called the “Black Hebrew Israelites.”

“Some of the students asked the chaperones if they could do their school cheers to help drown out the Black Hebrew Israelites. After the interaction with the Black Hebrew Israelites, Mr. Phillips approached the student,” the investigators found.

“We found no evidence of offensive or racist statements by students to Mr. Phillips or members of his group,” the report continued.

The report then noted that the students thought Phillips was coming over to join their school cheers, but no Covington students felt threatened by Phillips’ presence. Therefore they were not mounting any attacks on Phillips and his Native Americans.

Bishop Foys celebrated the report.

“Our students were placed in a situation that was at once bizarre and even threatening,” Foys said in a statement Thursday. “Their reaction to the situation was, given the circumstances, expected and one might even say laudatory.”

Let this be a lesson to the Catholic Church. Don’t fall for the lies from the liberal outrage machine. Wait for the evidence.

New Women’s March Board Member Gets Kicked To The Curb After Two Days On The Job Over Anti-Semitic Tweets

This lady is deplorable.

Published

There seems to be something about the Women’s March that’s a beacon for individuals who just love to hate Jews and Israel. In fact, the group’s latest board member was only on the job two days before being booted after anti-Semitic tweets were discovered on her Twitter profile. Hmmm. Really does make you wonder. Why do these kind of people gravitate toward this group? via TheBlaze: On Monday, The Washington Post reported that inaugural co-chairs Bob Bland, Tamika Mallory and Linda Sarsour had stepped down from their positions at the organization, noting that the trio had “been dogged by accusations of anti-Semitism, infighting and financial mismanagement.” Conservative news outlets were quick to point out that many in the 17-member board replacing the former leaders were no better, and exposed an array of anti-Semitic tweets and messages expressing support for black nationalist Louis Farrakhan. One of the new board members was Zahra Billoo, the executive director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations. The Washington Examiner reported that Billoo’s Twitter feed was “filled with anti-Zionist tweets, which the Anti-Defamation League has deemed ‘anti-Semitic.'” On Wednesday, Billoo revealed that she had been voted off the board of the Women’s March, following “an Islamophobic smear campaign.” She went on to slam the organization for letting her go, saying “it has effectively said, we will work on some women’s rights at the expense of others.” So wait a minute. Is she really going to play the victim card here? It certainly seems that’s what she’s doing. It’s kind of hard to garner any sort of sympathy for a person trying to claim they are the victim of some sort of hate and racism, when they themselves have been engaged in heinous acts of hatred themselves. Billoo wasn’t removed because she’s a Muslim. She was removed…

New Video Shows Beto O’Rourke Moving Toward Openness Of Snatching ALL Semi-Automatic Firearms

Yeah, that’s a no from me, Beto.

Published

Not too long ago, failing Democratic presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke stated, in no uncertain terms, that he was all about openly confiscating citizens’ AR-15 rifles, despite the fact that owning such a weapon is protected under the Second Amendment. Because why allow a pesky little thing like constitutional rights get in the way of desperately trying to pull ahead in the political polls right? Well, a new video is out on the Internet that seems to suggest that Beto himself is open to grabbing up all semi-automatic firearms. Evan Todd, a survivor of the Columbine shooting, confronted O’Rourke in Aurora, after arriving an hour late to the event. Todd is actually a supporter of the Second Amendment, despite having been shot and wounded at the tragedy in Columbine, and wanted to know just how far O’Rourke was willing to go on gun policies. Here’s more from The Daily Wire: “I understand that you want to implement a mandatory buyback for AR-15s and AK-47s. None of my classmates were murdered with those weapons, 50% of mass murders don’t happen with those weapons.” “Don’t you think it’s time to get rid of all semi-auto firearms?” Todd asked. O’Rourke, who at one point said that if he was elected that he would be removing firearms from people’s “homes,” responded by saying that he wanted input from Todd about what types of weapons he thinks should be banned. Several minutes later, after the event ended and O’Rourke moved inside to answer questions from reporters, a reporter asked O’Rourke if he would be open to adding “additional classes” of firearms to his ban and confiscation plan. “Yeah, I want to listen to him,” O’Rourke responded. “If there’s a way to improve what we have proposed, I want to make sure that we are reflecting that.”…
