(Tea Party PAC) – Covington Catholic teen Nick Sandmann, whose face has been burning up the internet for awkwardly smiling while Native American activist beat a drum in his face, has been subject to relentless persecution for the look on his face, all because the rest of the narrative about him unraveled completely.
Let that sink in.
While Sandmann stood on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial with his school group as black racist heckled him and his peers, calling the teens “crackers,” “f*ggots,” and other vulgar names, he stood his ground and showed incredible self-restraint.
But he apparently didn’t do enough to avoid offending anyone.
The left-wing media has been unceasing in their attack on his so-called “smirk” which George Orwell would have called a “facecrime.”
In Chapter 5 of Part 1 of the dystopian classic 1984, citizens can face persecution for having an unacceptable expression on their face:
“The smallest thing could give you away. A nervous tic, an unconscious look of anxiety, a habit of muttering to yourself—anything that carried with it the suggestion of abnormality, of having something to hide. In any case, to wear an improper expression on your face (to look incredulous when a victory was announced, for example) was itself a punishable offense. There was even a word for it in Newspeak: facecrime, it was called.”
