CNNís Kirsten Powers: Covington Students Called Classmate ĎN***erí with Hand Gesture
Breitbart ^ | 22 Jan 2019 | Joshua Caplan

Posted on 01/22/2019 3:00:07 PM PST by detective

CNN political analyst and USA Today columnist Kirsten Powers bizarrely claimed on Monday that Covington Catholic High School students referred to a black classmate as a racial slur with silent hand gestures to their harassers — who were actually saying the word.

The alleged gesture occurred in the lead up to a confrontation between some of the school’s students and a Native American activist on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial during Friday’s March for Life event in Washington, D.C.

Initial video of a confrontation between Covington Catholic High School junior Nick Sandmann and Native American activist Nathan Phillips created a firestorm of controversy on social media, with both left and right-wing media observers accusing the student of racism. Sandmann, donning a red Make America Great Again baseball cap, is seen smiling as he stands in front of Phillips, an elder with the Omaha tribe, who is beating a drum close to his face. Some of Sandmann’s classmates were laughing and making hand gestures in what some say were attempts to make fun of Phillips.

The fake news media just can't stop lying.

CNN needs to make up more lies after their initial lies were all proven false.

The black radicals were harassing their black classmate, who looked very young
Seems to me the boys were pulling him away from the radicals to protect him

Funny how and Powers has no problem with actual racial slurs hurled at the students by screaming savages who surrounded them.

Reminds me of Get Smart: “would you believe, the student hummed Dixie? Would you believe, the student once refused to share his ice cream with someone who might have African ancestors?...”

CNNs current reporting strategy is “We will keep lying until you believe us.”

Goebbels is beaming with pride for CNN.

Wasn’t there a front-page story last year about how Trump was “about to say the n-word, but stopped himself” ?

It’s going to cost them a lot, going after non-public-figure children in this way. They appear to be unaware that the extraordinarily high standard regarding public figures which lets them get away with years-long litanies of slander against Trump and others does not apply in the case of a private citizen, and that committing crimes against children makes the tort much much worse.

I refuse the racist assertion that only black people are allowed to use the word ‘nigger’ and that everyone else has to use asterisks or else call it ‘the n-word’.

If they really wanted everyone to stop using that word then they’d stop using it themselves.

And until they do I will insist on being able to spell it out when it is germane to the topic at hand.

Kirsten, Kirsten, you have fallen SO FAR since leaving FoxNews. I suspect you are irredeemable now.
