Over the weekend accusations of racism by Catholic school boys towards a Native American counter-demonstrator at the March for Life on Friday led to the Mainstream Media spreading the allegations like wild-fire, as it spread on social media like a plague. Quickly, death threats towards the students ensued from Hollywood and Americans around the nation. By Sunday afternoon, new evidence in the form of the video surfaced, showing that it wasn’t the Catholic boys who were being racist or threatening, but from the Indian, and a group of black counter-protesters against the ‘Right to life’ demonstrations. Now, authorities are concerned and have released statements, as the boys and their families have had their lives threatened.

Sadly, it all started when the Hollywood Reporter ran with a headline on Saturday that read…

“Students in ‘Make America Great Again’ Hats Mock Native Americans After Washington Rally.”

Quickly, Mainstream Media latched onto the headline and began attacking the boys as racists! CNN headlined

“Teens in Make America Great Again hats taunted a Native American elder at the Lincoln Memorial.”

The video quickly went viral, as it was edited to cut out the majority of the video, so as to depict the children as making fun of the Native American Indian Vietnam Veteran. In fact, the video reported by the Mainstream Media painted the boys as mocking the Indians on the Lincoln Memorial’s steps, as Nathan Phillips, the Native American drummer, walked towards them. The student’s gestures were perceived as mocking him.

Also, the Native American drummer, Nathan Phillips told a Detroit newspaper that he had

“tried to keep the peace between a group of mostly white students attending a March for Life event and a gathering of about four black members of a religious group known as the Black Hebrew Israelites.”

Phillips went on to say that…

These young men were beastly and these old black individuals was their prey.” He claimed that the students had chanted “build the wall”

Also, Phillips told the Washington Post that…

“he felt threatened by the teens and that they swarmed around him.”

Quickly social media saw the video go viral, as the boys were doxxed, and threatened with expulsion and disciplinary actions. Left-wing Slate reported that the student had

“harassed” the Native American and had the “face of self-satisfaction and certitude, of edginess expressed as cruelty.”

Slate then said that the boy’s actions were tied to the President’s criticisms of Senator Elizabeth Warren, and her claim to Native American heritage.

Then, anti-Trumper Bill Kristol tweeted out that the President should condemn the Catholic school. He said…

If some kid wearing a McCain 2008 cap had been filmed behaving this way, John McCain would have already called Mr. Phillips to express regret. And he would have used the occasion to remind his supporters they should treat others with respect. Will Trump do anything like this?

The pack of reprehensible, racist boys in MAGA hats mocking an elder at Friday’s #IndigenousPeoplesMarch on the National Mall are from Covington Catholic High School [859-491-2247] in KY [@senatemajldr]. Superintendent @supmikeclines was in DC with them.https://twitter.com/2020fight/status/1086476619877765120/video/1 

The mayor of Covington Kentucky slammed the students in a Washington Post opEd that said that the videos of the students’ behavior at the event
“do NOT represent the core beliefs and values of this City.”

Then the Catholic school and the diocese issued a public apology, regardless of the boy’s claims that they were being smeared. Still, the school and diocese pledged discipline and expulsion of the students. They stated…

Within 24 hours, the boys were receiving threats and harassment from people whom they knew, and people they had never heard of before.

One of the boys that attended the event posted a plea for the media to look at the full story about what had happened at the Lincoln Memorial, as he said…

I am a student at Covington Catholic and was present at the occurrence. Here is what truly happened …

In the midst of our cheers, we were approached by a group of adults led by Nathan Phillips, with Phillips beating his drum. They forced their way into the center of our group. We initially thought this was a cultural display since he was beating along to our cheers and so we clapped to the beat. … However, after multiple minutes of Mr. Phililps beating his drum directly in the face of my friend (mere centimeters from his nose), we became confused and started wondering what was happening. It was not until later that we discovered they would incriminate us as a publicity stunt. … To reiterate, we did not partake in any physical or verbal abuse … After that initial occurrence, we were then verbally assaulted by four or five African-American men who called us “faggots” and berated one of our African-American students for being friends with us. The truth needs to come out. I pray that you read this …

Then as new evidence began to emerge, The Daily Caller posted another side of the story. The reported that…

The boys had traveled to Washington, D.C. to participate in Friday’s March for Life from Covington Catholic High School in Park Hills, Kentucky, and were waiting for the bus that was to take them home. The boys were seen jumping up and down around him (Phillips) and can be heard chanting “Cov Cath is the best” which is their school chant, in time with the drumbeat. Meanwhile, as Phillips beat his drum, the boys around them clap and chant. One of the boys can be heard yelling, “What is going on? This is so sweet!”

Newsweek, reported that the mother of one of the boys who attended, said…

“Shame on you! Were you there? Did you hear the names the people where (sic) calling these boys? It was shameful. Did you witness the black Muslims yelling profanities and videotaping trying to get something to further [sic] your narrative of hatred??”

Then, by Sunday afternoon, less than 24 hours after the Hollywood Reporter broke the story, new videos showing the incident in its entirety began to surface. Also, it began to shine a new light on the event.

Ironically, the following videos were not even posted by the Catholic boys, but instead by the radical left-wing activists who had been taunting the boys, before Phillips got involved.

When watching the video, it shows the boys chanting their school song, as a radical anti-Trump, black group yells racial slurs at the Catholic boys like…

“White people, go back to Europe, where you came from. This is not your land.”

The attacks continued with other racial slurs and attacks…

Meanwhile, Phillips was beating on his drum, as the boys ignored the black men’s slurs, and danced to the beat of the drum. The boys said at first they thought that Phillips was banging the drum to the beat of their school song. Meanwhile, Phillips approached the students, who were already there on the steps, despite his claims that they surrounded him.

Furthermore, the full video showed even more problems with the claims made by Nathan Phillips and the Mainstream Media. For example, Nathan Phillips  account that he “tried to keep the peace between a group of mostly white students attending a March for Life event and a gathering of about four black members of a religious group known as the Black Hebrew Israelites,” was not actually the case, but instead, he approached the boys as they began chanting to his drum beat. Then, he walked up to one boy with a MAGA hat as they began staring each other down, neither one speaking or moving.

Phillips also claimed that…

These young men were beastly and these old black individuals was their prey.” He claimed that the students had chanted “build the wall”

However, they were not even saying to “build the wall”, and it was the black men who were yelling racial slurs and threats at the boys for wearing MAGA hats, and their skin color. The racial slurs were caught on video.

Phillips other claims that he told the Washington Post about the fact that “he felt threatened by the teens and that they swarmed around him” was completely inaccurate, as the boys never moved, and as Phillips along with some of his friends, and the radical left counter-protest black group surrounded the boys, as they hurled threats at the school kids.

The Gateway Pundit also pointed out that Phillips had been involved in similar occurrences like this before, as he accused college students elsewhere of hurling racial slurs and threats. Phillips reported it immediately to the news, and campus police investigated, but no evidence of threats or violence was ever found.

Also, Nathan Phillips has previously attended anti-Trump protests in April of 2017, when he had his picture taken in front of the Trump International Hotel in Washington, D.C., where he said that he was protesting against President Trump’s environmental policies.

Now, the parents and students from Covington Catholic are demanding an apology from the diocese, which they have yet to get. However, the retractions are just now beginning to emerge!

On Saturday, cartoonist and political commentator Scott Adams said that the students had behaved like “assholes.” However, he changed his Saturday comment of saying that the students had behaved like “assholes”, to apologizing for the remark, and blaming it on “fake news” CNN portraying the victim as the perpetrator! Also, he pointed out that Phillips turned out to be confrontational, rather than the reverse, after seeing the video in its entirety. He tweeted…

In addition, the Associated Press admitted that Marcus Frejo, a member of the Pawnee and Seminole tribe said that the children were singing with them, and not making fun of them.

Journalists who uncritically accepted Nathan Phillips’ story got this completely wrong.

Meanwhile, the RINO anti-Trump publication National Review didn’t even have the guts to retract their comments, but instead silently took down their attack piece on the Catholic boys, who happened to be wearing ‘Make America Great Again’ hats down.
Nick Sandman issued a statement on Sunday night. He said…
“The protesters said hateful things. They called us ‘racists,’ ‘bigots,’ ‘white crackers,’ ‘f-ggots,’ and ‘incest kids.’ They also taunted an African American student from my school by telling him that we would ‘harvest his organs.’ I have no idea what that insult means, but it was startling to hear. Because we were being loudly attacked and taunted in public, a student in our group asked one of our teacher chaperones for permission to begin our school spirit chants to counter the hateful things that were being shouted at our group. The chants are commonly used at sporting events. They are all positive in nature and sound like what you would hear at any high school. Our chaperone gave us permission to use our school chants. We would not have done it without obtaining permission from the adults in charge of our group. Our chants were loud because we wanted to drown out the hateful comments that were being shouted at us by protesters. The protester everyone has seen in the video began playing his drum as he waded into the crowd, which parted for him. I did not see anyone try to block his path. He locked eyes with me and approached me, coming within inches of my face. He played his drum the entire time he was in my face,” Sandmann recalled. “To be honest, I was started and confused as to why he had approached me. We had already been yelled at by other groups of protesters, and when the second group approached I was worried that a situation was getting out of control where adults were attempting to provoke teenagers.”
“I said a silent prayer that the situation would not get out of hand. When he left to get on the bus, the student believed that he had diffused the situation by remaining calm, and was thankful nothing physical happened. I was not intentionally making faces at the protester. I did smile at one point because I wanted him to know that I was not going to become angry, intimidated or be provoked into a larger confrontation. I am a faithful Christian and practicing Catholic, and I always try to live up to the ideals my faith teaches me to remain respectful of others, and to take no action that would lead to conflict or violence,”

Now, the Polish Catholic Parliamentarian Tarczynski Invited the Covington Pro-Life boys to come and speak in Parliament after they were wrongfully accused and attacked.

Sadly though, as a result of the out-of-control Mainstream Media, which has taken their anti-Trump hate to an all new level, they have spun a web-of-lies that has grown into threats of violence against pro-Trump children.

Now,  Hollywood Producer Jack Morrisey tweeted threats of putting pro-Trump kids into a wood chipper, as he tweeted…

Then, when Morrissey began to get a backlash on Twitter, he locked and protected his account so no one could comment…

Sadly, Twitter once again protects the radicals on the left, and is protecting his account, and refusing to remove his tweet, regardless of its violent threat!

Hate filled so-called comedian pleaded for names and information on the Catholic boys, as she wanted to doxx them. She tweeted…

Also, actor and ‘comedian’ Ben Hoffman, who goes by the stage name ‘Wheeler Walker Jr.,’ called for violent sexual crimes to be committed against the minor teens and went to the extreme of offering a reward to whoever can stalk and find the minor child and

“punch him in the nuts.”

Sunday night, the American Indian Movement Chapter of Indiana and Kentucky announced that they are planning to protest at Covington Catholic School on January 22nd. They will be protesting…

“against racist attacks against the March for Indigenous People in Washington DC. We are calling for a boycott of the school itself and the archdiocese for fostering an environment of hatred and violence against people of color,” the statement reads. “We are calling for a boycott of the school until they fire the chaperones who accompanied these students for allowing this attack to happen and we are calling for them to educate their students on racism and a zero tolerance policy regarding racist attacks by students and punish students with expulsion for racist attacks.”

They posted…

Now, as a result of countless threats, and an impending protest on the outskirts of the school premises, the Kenton County Prosecutor warned leftists and those who have threatened acts of violence against Covington Catholic High School and its children, will not be tolerated. He posted…

Sadly, this is what happens when the media loses sight of responsible reporting, allows accusations to become convictions, and allows mob justice to prevail before all the facts are given time to ascend to the surface. Unfortunately, although few will learn from the injustices of this incident, one thing has become apparent. Americans cannot trust the Mainstream Media or Hollywood hate-mongers! They only care about bringing hate and violence down on President Trump, and anyone who dares support his Presidency and agenda. We cannot rely on Social Media for truth, because the truth that the Silicone Valley tech giants allow, is rarely truthful!  Furthermore, leftists and so-called RINO (Republican In Name Only) Republican news organizations including Bill Krystal and the National Review should be ashamed of their actions this weekend, as well as, their actions over the past few years. Today, anti-Trumpsters and Progressives will do anything to smear those who hold ideological differences of opinions, rather than looking for ways to work together! Sadly, even the Catholic School and diocese itself should be ashamed of themselves, because instead of looking at the facts to make a determination for the course of action to take, they allowed the Mainstream Media, social media, and the public mob-like anger to influence them to make a rash judgment and condemn the school children and make threats of punishment and expulsion fo the students, regardless of not having all the facts!

Now, it is time to reign in the anger, allow the children to be children, and not allow the radical Marxist mob-like mentality to spread like a weed in the garden. Instead, it is time for ‘We the People’ to stand up to the Mainstream Media’s lies, allow the truth to the surface before allowing conclusions to pervade our minds. Otherwards, whether we are conservative or liberal, or socialist or capitalist, we will be no better than the radicals who spread hate, vile words, or threats of violence.
