Gibson Bakery Case Sets Precedent For Future Cases Against Political Correct Attacks

Gibson Bakery Case Sets Precedent For Future Cases Against Political Correct Attacks

In a move that should be taken with a sense of victory, we have finally seen the slander from the left be not only called out, but has hit them in the one place that will always make them take note an listen, their wallets.

A Jury this week first awarded Gibson Bakery $11M for damages, has since come back with an additional award for $33.2M for Libel.

While this may not seem that much of a big deal, the problem you had up to this point was establishing court precedence in such a case, this case has done exactly that.

Further, the awarding of this also will make far left strongholds, like colleges, be forced to take into account the possibility that their attacks in the name of political correctness may carry a penalty in monetary damages.

One can just hope this will be the first of many, we now have cases pending in court with the teens from Covington Catholic High School in Kentucky that slandered from the press and the leftist establishment, this case is also in the courts.

In the hours and days since those first snapshots of the encounter made the rounds, however, it has become crystal clear that the original narrative was hugely misleading.  Additional videos from different angles began to emerge, proving that the students did not swarm or try to block the drum-toting man; rather, he proactively approached them.  

We also learned that a small group of African-American men was hurling racial and homophobic insults at the boys, singling out the small number of non-white students in the group for especially grotesque abuse (including creepily telling a black student that his classmates would harvest his organs).  The drum-beating Native American ‘victim’ was accompanied by someone who screamed at the students to “go back to Europe,” profanely hectoring them over ‘stolen’ land.  And the drummer himself acted strangely, choosing to approach one of the students wearing a red hat to play his instrument within inches of the boy’s face.

Mr. Phillips has gone on television and accused the students of being vessels of violent hatred, claiming that they were somehow attacking the black men who were, in reality, the true aggressors, tormenting the teens with vile insults.  As Soave writes, “all the evidence suggests that Phillips got it backward.” Furthermore, Phillips’ version of events — which has changed dramatically as more evidence has come to light — “is at best flawed, and arguably deliberately misleading.”  

After viewing the available video, and reading statements from two of the boys (including the teenager who became “the face” of the episode), it seems quite obvious that the students’ detailed accounts are at least much closer to the truth than the media storyline that first circulated.  And it is now beyond dispute that the worst actors of the whole lot, by far, were the members of the “Black Hebrew Israelites,” whose cartoonishly bigoted invective was appalling.

It is time that this none stop slander we have seen starts to have a pushback, suing for libel is the best way to do this. Hitting the main press where it hurts, they have to understand, if you are going to label without bothering to check facts, you can and should receive a legal case for libel.
