Great article! Thank you.
oooh buoy. "Democracy cannot function in a world where the truth is irrelevant, or even worse, where it is manufactured." Absolutely true. How do you know what these kids were thinking? You didn't. Therefore, most of your article is UNTRUE. You know, you wasted a really important opportunity here. If you were truly THERE and you had so much hate in your heart that you had to automatically assume these kids meant you ill will,, then I am very sorry for YOU. You must have a cold heart twisted by years of hate. Because I love these boys. If you had stopped to THINK first, struck up a dialogue with some of these kids, talked about how the tomahawk chop was really offensive to Native Americans, maybe share your pain with them, I guarantee you that you would have gained more than a few advocates for your cause. You stupid, stupid girl. You wasted this opportunity because YOU JUST KNEW what was in these kids' hearts. YOU JUST KNEW they were white privileged boys. YOU JUST KNEW they were racists. YOU DIDN"T KNOW ANYTHING. For all you know, Nick Sandmann could have Native Ancestry. You see, here in Kentucky, the one state in the union with NO NATIVE TRIBES, we are proud of native ancestry. We may not always know much about it, because the school curriculum for Native Peoples is generally an overview of all Native Peoples and their histories. So if you have gripes about how WHITE PEOPLE relate to YOU, look in the mirror to see the problem. Up until now, I have had respect and awe for Native Peoples, I have tried to educate myself and my children about Native People and their hardships at the hands of not only the US Government but also the Catholic Church - and I believe our recent pope apologized for those actions - but we simply do not have a Native presence here in Northern Kentucky and that is NOT THESE KIDS' FAULT. And now, I have lost respect for all the angry, hateful Native Americans like you who practice hate and bigotry while crying about what you perceive are abuses from US. You COULD have made friends with these guys. You cannot ask for better advocates for a cause than a bunch of Catholic High School kids because they are trained to service to the poor, the disposed, those treated unjustly. You completely blew your golden opportunity because I guess you thought you would get a bigger bang for your buck by targeting and taking down these kids all because of their hats. That is, assuming you were a part of this. Someone was. But you will reap what you have sown. What will you reap? Well these kids are surely not going to be turned into little liberals when they go to college! Oh no, they will be Take-No-Crap conservatives and they will NOT forget THIS. Furthermore, all their fellow Catholic High School students (only about 1 million) and other Christian high school students who know THEY are targets will no doubt follow suit. So you and your black-hearted fellows have probably single-handedly re-elected Donald Trump in 2020. And Mike Pence in 2024! Way to go! Congratulations! But seriously, we know you have issues and we will pray for you. Got a bigger hole to dig out of now, good luck.
