Having watched ALL the videos, my humble opinion is "a plague on all your houses." Not so much the hapless participants at the Lincoln Memorial as the viral legions of "outraged" spectators who turned a circus of misperception into a carnival of righteousness and condemnation.
HAVEN'T YOU ALL GOT ANYTHING BETTER TO DO?
Trust me when I say that OUTRAGE has a right-wing bias. There are several reasons for this. One is that the right is fueled by outrage. A second reason is that the Mostly Seagulls Media is easily manipulated by the right-wing outrage Wurlitzer, which is heavily subsidized. The third is that you can't beat something with nothing. Liberals seem to think that outrage is some kind of spontaneous expression of disapproval. WRONG! (see points one and two) It's one thing when a mob of MAGA-hatted brats are disrespectful to a Native American elder beating a drum. But it is something else entirely different when a restaurant owner politely refuses service to a lying press secretary. One is just kids-will-be-kids, the other is incivility.
Having heard that a public relations firm associated with Mitch McConnell wrote the exculpatory explanation for the poster-boy Covington kid, I begin to wonder if maybe that firm staged the whole incident as sort of a rhinestone Reichstag Fire. Because, you know, everything the right doesn't want you to pay attention to is a false-flag carried out by crisis actors.
Maybe if people were busy building the General Strike, they wouldn't have so much time for pointless spectacles of outrage.
