The now well-documented attack by the Black Israelites, (Warning: strong language) and “professional Indian” Nathan Phillips upon a group of prolife Catholic school boys from Covington Kentucky at the 2019 March for Life has proven to be an epiphany for many Catholics.
Although recent high-profile attacks on Catholic Trump nominees for the US judiciary—Notre Dame Professor Amy Barrett’s and Brian Buescher, both pilloried by Democratic senators for the crime of being Catholic Americans—have shone light on the clear contempt many leftists have for Christianity in general and Catholicism in particular, it wasn’t until Phillips and the Black Israelites terrorized the Covington boys that many Catholics became aware of the gravity of the situation.
The more scientific corroboration there is that we are viewing a real human being, the more frenzied, unnatural, and anti-human the arguments of the pro-abortionists become, to the point now that the narrative is simply to declare openly that it is simply okay to “kill” the infant embryo.
On Friday, January 18, 2019, over 100,000 people—families, young adults, children, religious groups—gathered in the freezing cold of Washington DC’s Mall to once again “March for Life,” a national event that has taken place every year since 1974, forty-five years consecutively.
But you wouldn’t have known it had you watched cable channels CNN or MSNBC, or even the coverage on NBC or CBS. The march hardly registered a blip, and then with barely disguised condescending comments about only a few “thousands” or “tens of thousands” of participants. Watching those broadcasting networks, I would have missed their coverage had I blinked more than once.
