When Covington Catholic student Nick Sandmann took a field trip with his school to Washington DC, he could have never guessed the uproar that would follow.
After getting into a very peaceful and restrained altercation with an older Native American named Nathan Phillips that was caught on video, the mainstream media chose to crucify Sandmann, calling him a racist and provocateur. All the while, the only real reason the media chose to treat Sandmann with such vitriol was the fact that he was wearing a MAGA hat when the video was filmed.
Once the truth started coming to light, though, and it was revealed that Mr. Phillips was, in fact, the one to blame for the altercation, Sandmann and his parents filed a defamation lawsuit against the Washington Post. That lawsuit was originally dismissed, but a federal judge has now ruled that a portion of Sandman’s lawsuit against the Washington Post may continue.
