After far-left climate activist Greta Thunberg gave an extreme speech at the United Nations on Monday, the Left worked overtime to brand anyone who criticized Thunberg or her speech as a vicious bully picking on a child. The Left used similar tactics after the media repeatedly trotted out teen survivors of the tragic Parkland high school mass shooting last year to promote gun control.
But teens are only off-limits when they are promoting left-wing causes, it seems. Last year, Catholic students at Covington High School were ripped apart and smeared by liberals after an out-of-context clip of a confrontation with Native American activist Nathan Phillips went viral online. More footage of the encounter would later show that the teens were the ones confronted by Phillips and endured nasty, racist taunting from another group of activists moments before.
Nonetheless, here’s how the Left treated 16-year-old Nick Sandmann, who became the face of the incident, and his fellow students.
“Honest question. Have you ever seen a more punchable face than this kid’s?” asked former CNN host Reza Aslan.
