Nick Sandman, a student at Covington Catholic High School recently scored a major legal victory against the Washington Post for its slanderous portrayal of his infamous encounter with Native American activist Nathan Phillips.
Sandman’s victory over the Jeff Bezos owned Washington Post for not verifying the story before rushing to publish the initial erroneous account and its incendiary accusations by its left-wing hack writer against a minor child is well documented. But Sandman’s attorneys are also systematically going through all the hundreds to thousands of terrible comments made about Sandman and his family, sending letters to them and asking them to retract their statements and preserve their documents.
Sandman’s victory is a major victory against careless and reckless practices by media hacks and armchair commentators.
Sandman, who recently celebrated his 18th birthday, will join fellow pro-life advocate Abby Johnson to speak at the 2020 Republican National Convention next week.
The Trump campaign confirmed the news to Breitbart Monday, explaining that Johnson, Sandmann, and other speakers were selected to “illustrate the potentially disastrous consequences of Democrat governance,” such as the dangers of left-wing “cancel culture.”
Johnson is a former Planned Parenthood abortion facility director who converted to the pro-life cause in 2009, and has since exposed numerous details about the inner workings of the abortion industry. She now leads And Then There Were None, a nonprofit dedicated to helping people leave the abortion industry. Her story was turned into a successful motion picture last year, Unplanned.
Sandmann was a student at Kentucky’s Covington Catholic High School who attended the 2019 March for Life in Washington DC, and found himself at the heart of a national firestorm when the press erupted with claims that a video showed him and his classmates harassing Native American activist Nathan Phillips outside the Lincoln Memorial. But additional extended video and firsthand accounts soon revealed that Phillips was the one who waded into the group waiting for its bus and decided to beat a drum inches from Sandmann’s face, while the boys had merely performed school cheers in hopes of drowning out racist taunts from members of the Black Hebrew Israelites fringe group.
