Hello this is Darrell Castle with today’s Castle Report. Today I will be talking about Nick Sandmann and his heroic non-confrontation with some racist protestors who called themselves Black Hebrews, Black Israelites or some such thing and also one who said he is a Native American and is apparently also a Marine Corps veteran.
What makes Nick Sandmann a hero
I refer to Nick Sandmann’s non- confrontation with the protestors as heroic simply because he didn’t do anything but smile despite extreme provocation from them, and more importantly, he refused to apologize for what he did not do in an effort to appease those who hate him. I didn’t intend to talk about this story because I know you must be tired of it, but the vicious nature of the way Nick and the other teenagers with him were treated warrants some discussion.
Most of what has been popularized by President Trump’s tweets as “Fake News” has at least a kernel of truth to it. The media, acting without regard to truth and integrity, twists the story into one of their own in order to advance their political agenda. The interesting thing about this story and the thing that made me want to talk about it is that this time there isn’t even a kernel of truth to the story. Everything the media reported about this non-incident is a total and complete lie without any truth whatsoever. The media used to spin stories to fit their political agenda but now apparently they just make them up or read from a script handed to them by their owners.
A deliberate lie
Could I be exaggerating and the misreporting just a series of mistakes? Perhaps the media saw the story and some reporter saw a chance to gain points with his Democrat boss and he jumped the gun and reported it incorrectly. No, in this case that is not what happened and it is not conceivable that it happened that way.
The media, the reporters, the TV talking heads, the networks, the liberal blog sites, all had access to all the information that I have now from the beginning. There were actual, real time videos actually taken by the racist protesters, at least an hour’s worth, of the entire event available from the beginning so it was not a mistake but a deliberate lie and an effort to destroy a bunch of totally innocent teenagers in order to advance their vile and wicked political agenda.
Nick Sandmann gives his version
Nick Sandmann , the 16 year old catholic kid from Covington Kentucky Catholic High School, that is seen in all the pictures and videos smiling or as the media reports it, smirking, in the face of the Native American, wrote a public statement giving his version of the event. In his letter Nick talks about coming to Washington to attend a pro life rally with other kids from his Catholic High School in Covington Kentucky. The kids were to gather at the Lincoln Memorial to catch the busses that would take them home. While there they were confronted by some African American protestors who called these kids “racists”, “bigots”, “white crackers”, “faggots”, and “incest kids” and that is just the milder things they shouted at these kids. If you doubt me just watch the video and you will see and hear.
Because they were being attacked and taunted the kids asked their adult teachers for permission to sing their school song and permission was given. There were no racist overtones to the song at all. Nick said that he believed that if he remained motionless and calm it would diffuse the situation. Unfortunately for Nick and the other kids his actions were reported differently by the media which now seems incapable of anything other than lies?
A new experience
He said “I never understood why either of the two groups of protestors were engaging with us, or exactly what they were protesting at the Lincoln Memorial. We were there to meet a bus, not become central players in a media spectacle. This is the first time in my life I’ve ever encountered any sort of public protest, let alone this kind of confrontation or demonstration.”
Nick Sandmann, you are right in the middle of no-man’s land
Well Nick, let me give you my take on why this happened. You and the other kids, but especially you because you are the one in the picture wearing the hat, should be reported by the media as casualties of war. You were simply caught in the middle of a conflict that has been raging for some time. This war should probably be referred to as a Cultural Revolution similar to what happened in China under Mao. To this point it has not had the murderous results that Mao’s Cultural Revolution had but give it time, it’s still young.
Just as in China, everything normal in our civilization has to be destroyed. All of the things that make up Western Civilization are old and normal so they must be destroyed. You Nick, represent many of those things so you were just a convenient target that day. You are white, male or should I say toxically masculine, Christian and worse Catholic, because that would normally make you pro life. Those things are hateful to our enemies in this Cultural War so they are the first targets of their destructive rage. In this cultural war, whether we intend to be here or not, the future of our society and the world that our children and grandchildren will live in is at stake.
The exclusionary game
Many decades ago, big media decided that if it could just consolidate into a few hands of like mind it could eliminate competing views and thereby control the outcome of the struggle. Sometime during the Clinton Administration, the regulations preventing media consolidation were removed and so now about five corporations with only five Boards of Directors and more importantly five Chairmen of those Boards control virtually everything you read, see, and hear.
These five corporations and their owners, and I’m sure there are nameless, faceless, billionaires behind it all somewhere, but these five media giants declared war on Western Civilization, on America, on American and Western Culture, on Christianity, on all who oppose them and will not bow to their agenda, and on every normal and decent thing.
Worse than a ministry of propaganda
The media enemy that we face today is in some ways more dishonest than Joseph Goebbels and his Ministry of Propaganda. Goebbels admitted what he was and put it right on the door of his building for all to see and I suppose he was very proud to be Hitler’s Minister of Propaganda. It was his job to propagandize the German people and build support for Hitler and his Party but at least they told the people what they were doing.
Today, our Ministry of Propaganda has names on its doors too, names such as The Washington Post, The New York Times, CNN, NBC, CBS, MSNBC, and many others. Unfortunately these well known media giants can hide in plain sight because for many people they have the only source of news available so what they put out forms the reality of many.
Now, other corporations, not connected with media at all except through advertising, have joined forces with media in the Culture War. Many Corporations including entertainment, transportation, and personal use products such as shaving items have all gone the route of destruction of the normal and decent. We are all bad you see, if we don’t accept their lying, disgusting, and vile view of what this once great civilization should be, we are the enemy and scheduled for destruction.
Leading the enemy forces in this struggle for the survival of all things normal and decent are most likely a few billionaires wise enough to decide for the rest of us how we should live and what we should accept as normal and good. Doing the bidding of those people are the media including traditional media, entertainment, and even some alternative media. Acting as shock troops for those who decide our lives for us are the protestors such as those who confronted Nick and his fellow teenagers, as well as thug groups represented by those such as Antifa and others. The shock troops will almost always be young and enthusiastic just as they were in Mao’s Cultural Revolution.
The common good?
It was teenagers and 20 something’s who provided Mao’s muscle. It didn’t seem to bother them that an ancient culture was being destroyed and millions were being killed. I suppose in a land where the individual counts for nothing and the collective counts for everything, that makes perfect sense. It can all be chalked up to the greater good. Never mind individual rights, because it’s all for the common good.
Not yet as bad, but…
Is this Cultural Revolution really as bad as Mao’s? No, at least I don’t think so, but give it a little time and we’ll see. The sad thing is that the only way to escape from the destructive path that identity politics has us on is to treat each other as individuals and not as members of some group. That, however, would not suit the power lust of those who urge us on our way from Marxist professors to corporate heads to politicians and would be politicians.
The hatred and evil expressed by Democrats and their celebrity media toward Nick Sandmann must have been hard for him to take, but he stood his ground and didn’t apologize and that makes him my hero of this week. He was threatened with death by celebrities, his family received death threats, and so did his school all because he did nothing but stand his ground. Unfortunately his Catholic Bishop and the other administrators of the Diocese were not as courageous as Nick. They haven’t learned yet that a groveling, sniveling apology for something you didn’t do only makes you seem weak and pathetic to the enemy. They hate you, they will always hate you, and there is nothing you can do about it so just deal with it and defend those kids not those who persecute them.
Nick Sandmann has new friends: alternative media
In conclusion, not all the news is bad today. Alternative media which is just individuals watching and commenting recognized within hours, not days, or weeks, hours that the mainstream media reports were nothing but a pack of lies and they called them on it. It was very encouraging to watch how people of good will came to Nick’s defense when the evidence that this was a false story by false people came to light. Maybe that’s why so many are being de-platformed by Silicon Valley.
Finally folks, that’s not all the good news. Media is in trouble financially because their ads are not selling. TV is laying people off as are liberal web sites and blog sites. I guess people are starting to recognize lies when they see and hear them. Who says there’s no more good news?
Oh and one last thing: Don’t believe them ever. They wouldn’t know the truth if they accidentally stumbled over it.
At least that’s the way I see it.
Until next time folks,

[…] Nick Sandmann, the young man most commonly identified by the media as the villain in the Catholic school kids’ story has filed a $250 million lawsuit against The Washington Post and other media defendants for defamation. The defendants may have trouble defending the lawsuit because Mr. Sandmann is not a public figure that they are free to defame without regard to how much damage they may cause. If he were a public figure he would have to prove the story was false and that the Post knew it was false and they published it with the malicious intent to defame. He is not a public figure, however, just a teenage kid so proof of malice is unnecessary. I hope he prevails in his lawsuit since that would send a message that perhaps they should at least look at the video before they defame someone. […]
