Source: POLISH POLITICIAN Invites Covington MAGA Students to Speak Before PARLIAMENT!!!
Dr. Steve Turley (who I wish would use slightly fewer exclamation points and all-caps in his titles… *grin*) comments on the Covington Catholic High School students who were accosted by both “Black Hebrew Israelites” and by Native American activists, and the fact that they have been invited to speak before the Polish Parliament.
He notes, in the process, that some folks abroad have shown them more respect than their own Diocese, which was quick to throw them under the bus when the first false reports started to come out – even speaking of possible expulsion – but which has been notably silent since it became all too clear that this was a textbook example of “fake news.”
He calls upon the Diocese of Covington to publicly exonerate the students, and apologize for its quickness to believe the worst, before all the facts were in. I agree with him! They should – but I’m not going to hold my breath until it happens. A shame that the Diocese seems to have so little moral courage.
What kind of example does that set, for its students?

So much goodness in this picture! The Governor’s Mansion at Colonial Williamsburg, once the capital of 18th-century Virginia, with adorable little girls in proper Colonial attire carrying a basket of naturally-dyed wool from (perhaps) some of the Leicester Longwool heritage sheep raised there. A recreation of early America at its finest! Anyone who claims that “America was never that great” should look at this picture, and be ashamed. Yes, we were still colonies of Great Britain at that point in history. But the groundwork was already being laid…
And then we have the excellent phenomenon of homeschooling, in which parents can opt their children out of the politically-correct agendas of so much of public (and even private) schooling! So glad that Colonial Williamsburg – historically one of the flagship sites for living history, and a major influence on me, in childhood and beyond – is providing programs in support. Children need to learn about our history and heritage, and there is no better way than through experiential learning.
The Colonial Williamsburg Foundation has come under fire (not without justification, it must be said) in recent years, for apparent financial mismanagement, and also for some of its programming decisions: replacing costumed interpreters with docents in modern attire, canceling popular events, discouraging reenactor participation, and cashiering the popular tavern Balladeers, for example. But this, at least, deserves commendation.
