Just one day after CNN settled a $275 million defamation lawsuit against them for falsely portraying a Covington Catholic High School kid as a racist and a perpetrator of “hatred” toward people of color, Nick Sandmann is now going after high profile congresswoman, Senator Elizabeth Warren, along with Ana Navarro, Maggie Haberman, and Kathy Griffin.
Reza Aslan is the CNN host who first published the now-deleted tweet asking rhetorically, “Have you ever seen a more punchable face than this kid’s?”
According to a lawsuit provided to PJ Media, “the tweet calling Sandmann’s face ‘punchable’ further spread the false narrative that the Covington Catholic boys had aggressively insulted the Native American man, when that was not the case,” it writes. “The lawsuit, which Barnes provided to PJ Media, would slap Aslan with a minimum of $135,000 in damages.”
False and Defamatory Accusations against the plaintiffs are defamatory per se, as they are libelous on their face without resort to additional facts, and as clearly demonstrated here, [the plaintiffs] were subjected to public hatred, contempt, scorn, obloquy, and shame,” the lawsuit argues.
The lawsuit then lists several “labels” that are now tied to the kid’s image for the rest of his lifetime, including, “racist,” “shameful,” “compared to genocide,” cavemen gestures,” “bullies,” and “be punched in the face.”

It should be noteworthy to mention that the high profile liberal Democrats mentioned in this lawsuit were not the only influential names to spread falsehoods about Sandmann. Highly popular and influential Southern Baptist leader, Beth Moore, also joined the chorus of liberals denouncing him, stating things such as “reeks of the vomit of hell,” and “glee in dehumanizing,” receiving thousands of likes an re-tweets on social media.
It is not yet known if Sandmann will go after Beth Moore for her libelous accusations against Sandmann but if he does decide to do so, it should be noted that many Southern Baptist leaders are known for this kind of behavior.
