You can talk about wise advice. The U.K. Daily MailNicholas Sandmann was maligned in liberal media for just wearing the MAGA hat to the Lincoln Memorial 2019 and going to the March for Life on Tuesday. spoke out about the liberal media’s treatment of Kenosha self-defender Kyle Rittenhouse and gave him some tips on when he’d be in for if he chose to sue them for slander and libel.
Stating the truth, Sandmann began by noting: “The parallels between me and Kyle Rittenhouse are impossible not to draw.” Both were teenagers when the malevolent eyes of the liberal media fell on them and labeled them heinous things.
“Kyle was almost immediately labelled [sic] a ‘white supremacist’ and a ‘domestic terrorist,’” Sandmann wrote. “To many, my red MAGA hat clearly meant that I was a racist.” He described ho
Sandmann acknowledged that he wasn’t a lawyer but wanted to offer up advice because “defamation cases are some of the hardest cases to win.” Because of the First Amendment, media types could easily weasel out of accountability because they could say calling him a “racist” and “white supremacist” was their “opinion.”
He would have to first win the case.
Do you think Kyle should sue for damages? First, it depends on the outcome of his trial. If he is found guilty, these elements will be in play. If Kyle is innocent, it will make winning easier.
At the time this article was written, the jury was still deliberating.
But even if he won, “the chances are still low and nothing is guaranteed in a defamation trial. Kyle should also be prepared for a long trial which will be present in his mind for years.”
Sandmann was fighting his own legal battles against the liberal media all those years later.
Three years have passed since that confrontation at March for Life, and I am currently involved in six media litigations. With the understanding that Kyle might not be able to bear another burden, but he is willing to try, let me know and I will hold them accountable.
“One of the saddening parts of this media onslaught is that it has taken young people like Kyle and myself to expose how corrupt the media really is,” he lamented.
Continuing to draw obvious parallels between them, Sandmann called out how CNN and the rest of the liberal media rushed to slap labels on them (Click “expand”):
CNN hosted tweeted me an image in less than 24 hours. He wrote: Honest question. Do you remember a punchier face?’.
Kyle was not given his moment in court by his critics.
Just like they did for me, the attacks against Kyle were brought to you by national media.
Because Kyle was an easy target to paint the way they desired, they came swiftly.
“This is the problem with liberal media outlets in the United States. They want to get the story first, get the most views, make the most money, and advance the agenda from liberal patrons,” he astutely deduced.
And while he didn’t address the facts of Rittenhouse’s case directly, Sandmann concluded by reaching out a compassionate hand:
This is my opportunity to tell Kyle that I am available to help him. If you have any questions, let me know. It is horrible how the media treated you, but you do not have to go through it all alone.
