Well, death threats directed at the students of Covington Catholic High School was inevitable as soon as that clip went viral. You’ve all seen it. Student Nick Sandmann wearing his Make America Great Again hat standing next to Nathan Phillips, a Native American man, who was banging a drum at the Lincoln Memorial in what the liberal media called a racist hounding of a person of color. The same media said “build the wall” chants were spewed during the incident. All of this was false. Obscenities were hurled at the students from a group of Black Hebrew Israelites, an alleged black supremacist group, who were also there. Hence, why the kids did sports chants to drown out that nonsense. The students were attending the March for Life event last weekend. Phillips was the one who approached the group, hoping to diffuse the two sides. There was no hounding. The hysteria from the Left occurred because the students were white, Catholic, and wearing MAGA gear. They needed to be destroyed. For one writer at Vulture, he hoped that would happen, along with their families, on social media.
Well, as some people have told me when these incidents happen, Twitter can also serve as one’s 140+ character resignation letter. In this case, however, it was a one-way ticket to the unemployment line for this journalist. Ashe Schow of The Daily Wire has more:
A journalist who contributed to Vulture has been fired from his main job at INE Entertainment after he publicly wished for the Covington Catholic students and their parents “to die.”
“I don’t know what it says about me but I’ve truly lost the ability to articulate the hysterical rage, nausea, and heartache this makes me feel. I just want these people to die. Simple as that. Every single one of them. And their parents,” Erik Abriss said on Saturday in a tweet.
“'Racism is in its Boomer death throes. It will die out with this younger generation!’ Look at the shit-eating grins on all those young white slugs’ faces. Just perverse pleasure at wielding a false dominion they’ve been taught their whole life was their divine right. F–ing die,” he added in a follow-up tweet.
INE Entertainment, where Abriss was a post-production supervisor, fired him after the tweets, according to TheWrap.
And all of this happened because some people got overworked over fake news. The anti-Trump infection of the liberal media was bad. It’s always been if there was a Republican in the White House. It’s going to get worse, folks.
