Nurse the Hate: Those Darn Covington Boys!

I have been fascinated by the Covington kids and their interaction with the Native American tribesman and the Black Israelites in Washington last weekend.  I really dove in on this thing, looking at various footage to try and get to the real core of the incident.  It’s not deciding if the rich Kentucky kids in Trump hats that got bussed in from the expensive private school are racists.  I think that sentence alone suggests what any reasonable person might conclude.  “Hmmm… if I didn’t know any better I would think some of those boys in that video are assholes…” 

In one of the videos, a boy with shockingly large breasts takes off his shirt to get crazy for “his boyz”.  You can tell he’s the “crazy” one of the group, the one overcompensating for the reality that he should be in his physical prime but instead has nice pointy breasts.  I believe he has a bright future of hazing other dudes in frats and sexual assaults of young girls in freshman dorms, but that’s only because I draw shockingly fast conclusions based on past experience.  If I’m right, I’m “wise”.  If I am wrong, it’s because he gets counseling. 

This kid gets all wound up and leads the boys in some sort of football cheer.  It’s pure gang mentality.  The boys are laughing it up because they have never considered anyone else’s point of view or been taught empathy.  Indians and blacks are to be laughed at.  MAGA motherfuckers!  We are in DC and the gang is all here!  Fuck you strange old Indian guy!  Let’s have a great laugh at things we don’t understand.  Afterwards, we can hop back on the safety of the bus and get buzzed on home to Mom and Dad.  Woo!  It’s clearly a video of asshole boys out of control.

Normally one would think the President of the United States would weigh in with something along the lines of “America and the great melting pot we have of cultures and blah blah blah…”  Not this guy.   “Looking like Nick Sandman & Covington Catholic students were treated unfairly with early judgements proving out to be false - smeared by media.”  It is unbelievable how often our President goes out of his way to defend racism.  The guy doesn’t even take a pass on it.  He gets right in there with a variation of “good people on both sides” idea.  At no point does he suggest that the Native American kook with the drum was not to blame for getting mocked by a bunch of kids wearing his hats.  Nope.  He has once again made it out to be about him and suggest the “evil media” is contorting a clearly fucked up situation.  By the way, no collusion!  Don’t look into the light!

The real story for me is what is going on with the adult chaperones?  Is that mob of douche boys roaming around on their own?  I can’t ever remember an occasion of a school trip where we were not bludgeoned with threats for any behavior deemed even close to objectionable.  I especially enjoyed the clearly empty threats of “if you wander off from the group, you will NOT graduate this Spring!” (as if your previous four years of education would be voided because you bought a switchblade in a Montreal shop…  saying that for a friend by the way…  I have no idea where those knives came from…)  How in God’s name did an adult not come to their senses and suggest “Boys, perhaps we should not yell cheers at the Black Israelites as they are clearly unhinged.  I would also suggest we not mock the Native American as that is not in fashion at the moment.”.  This would suggest to me that perhaps a group of boys sent on a bus for an Anti Abortion march might have some other “alt right” ideas that get knocked around the old campfire back home courtesy of their “adult chaperones”.  Remember, it’s not a Klan hood, it’s a MAGA hat.  It’s not racism, it’s Alt Right.  See how nice it can clean up? 

It will all simmer down soon thanks to the crisis PR firm hired by the smirking boy’s parents that swooped in to save that smirking kid.  I am fairly certain that the Native American guy does not have a crisis PR firm.  He could probably use one though as at this point all the Fox News talking heads have already spun this thing into an opportunity for Rubes not to trust the media.  The key is to see want you want to see.  The media is trying to trick you into thinking those kids were acting like assholes.  Don’t be fooled by the obvious.  They’re just good boys.  And remember, if the media is lying about that, I’m sure it’s all lies about the historic corruption in the Trump Administration.  Yep.  Nothing to see here.  Let’s rid ourselves of “political correctness”, which used to be called “tolerance”.  It’s so dull.  America is becoming greater every single day.

Just imagine if you could switch that around to a large group of chanting, aggressive African American high school boys, a Caucasian veteran, and a handful of belligerent native Americans, but all other conditions remain the same. Think that’d be reported the same way by your favorite news outlet? Think we’d be debating how those boys were part of a media smear campaign?

Lived in Cincinnati since 1995. Covington Catholic has a history of being Deep South racists. To get away with black face at sporting event is never something I every thought would have been done, let alone allowed repeatedly in the 1950's, but that happened in the last couple of years.

A friend of a friend said he would have been proud if that was his son. Could be the saddest un-defensible comment ever.

Love hot people turn it into a political or racial issue. Let us just look at what happened and what that kid did was clear and completely wrong.
