The curious case of the Covington Catholic high school boys wearing red MAGA hats and then being attacked by the left has garnished enough attention to get big time lawyer Robert Barnes involved. He's offered to support the kids for free if they're willing to sue people for libel, and possibly other damages occured after numerous left wing "journalists" have laid down attacks on the boys, or published inaccurate details revolving around the incident with the Native American drummer. After so many leftist media outlets attacked the boys with headlines suggesting the boys "mobbed" or surrounded the man and harassed them, the boys have been under attack to the point that their school even canceled class for a day.
After video evidence contradicting the stories published by left wing media, the real truth was exposed and people who obviously passed incorrect judgement and some retracted their stories or apologized. Others, not so much. Some people called for the boys to be attacked and physically harmed, quite a disturbing thing for adults to do to other people's kids. All of this for wearing a little read MAGA hat, right?
Robert Barnes is now setting Twitter on fire as he calls out people and unabashedly mentions them as he targets them. His objective is that he will sue said people if they do not retract their incorrect stories about the Covington boys. Barnes was seen on Twitter going after the following people: Kathy Griffin
, USA Today, Andrea Mitchell, The Washington Post, Maggie Haberman of the NY Times, Esquire, S.E. Cupp, Alyssa Milano, and Tom Watson.
PJ Media reported...
Los Angeles-based trial lawyer Robert Barnes offered to represent the Covington families for free should they decide to sue the New York Times.
Barnes told PJ Media that he was working with the families to sue the media outlets that defamed them.
He said that "anyone who doesn't correct and retract" their false smears would be subject to a lawsuit and that updated stories merely indicating "a more complex picture has emerged" would not necessarily be enough.
When asked if such stories would count as a retraction, he replied that it "depends."
All it took to get the truth was a quick Google search. Regular everyday people were able to search Google and find at least two hours worth of video evidence to contradict all the stories from left wing media. It takes how long to do a Google search? Maybe ten seconds? All the people who published the story trashing the Covington boys showed one short clip and claimed the boys were harassing them, but had they included the other videos in their story, then it would've been a different narrative.
This turned into a major story only because the boys were wearing a Trump MAGA hat. If they weren't wearing the hat, then there would be no story.
Now the lawyers are getting involved and it's a massive mess.
Here's a few tweets by Barnes and other to show they're not playing around.
.@Barnes_Law has given 48 hours to all of those who slandered and defamed the #CovingtonBoys to issue retractions and apologize or face legal action. @Ali and I have more than 9,000 tweets in the #VerifiedBullies at the ready to aid his litigation efforts. #StandWithCovington— CJ Pearson (@thecjpearson) January 23, 2019
This is libel. Retract, or get sued. https://t.co/18DO7vHOLN— Robert Barnes (@Barnes_Law) January 23, 2019
