If you’ve been on social media in the last 24 hours then you’ve been bombarded with the new BOMBSHELL story the media has chosen to focus on.
And I mean EVERY media outlet. Go to CNN, NBC, CBS, or pretty much any other Facebook page of a well established and widely read media entity, and you will see this story everywhere. When I first saw the headline I had the same visceral reaction many of you had, which is exactly how the media wanted us to react – the kid looks like the ultimate chud.
Then I watched it.
The MAGA-hat wearing Covington Catholic High School students mocking Elder Nathan Phillips at the Indigenous Peoples March in Washington are direct descendants of the white privilege that empowered white kids to mock Elizabeth Eckford at Little Rock Central High School in 1957. pic.twitter.com/tQroBf6aPb

That’s it??? Just to review what happened in that video:
- Man plays drum
- Boy stands 18 inches away from man playing drum
- Boy looks at man
- Others in crowd cheer on boy looking at man
That’s it. That’s the headline news. At no point did the man with the drum attempt to leave. At no point did anyone physically touch him. At no point did anyone chant “build the wall.” I was honestly disappointed that nothing else happened because that was boring as shit.
Nevertheless all you had to see was a smug face, a MAGA hat on a white kid, and an elderly Native American man, and the mob had made up its mind.
Harass the school.
Label everyone in the community as a rapist.
Try to harass the school’s sponsors.
Get really mad.
Hit children with chairs.
Dox them all.
Punch a kid.
Say things like, “I’m 100% against violence, but I want to commit violence on that child’s face because I don’t like the way he looks.”
I don’t think she understands what 100% means. Or violence.
The blue checkmarks were levying threats too.
Call them all racist and blame it on Trump.
Racist little white punks in #MAGA hats spawned from the seeds of white supremacists harassed, mocked, and ridiculed a Native American elder. They were students from Covington Catholic in KY who had just attended the #MarchForLife.#TrumpsAmerica pic.twitter.com/ZQee0VIwGN

Use your platform to accuse the entire community of abuse based on unconfirmed anecdotes you heard from strangers that fit your narrative.
The more I read from alums of Covington catholic about the abuse, bullying and cruelty there, the more I come to believe that the students thuggish behavior is a feature of the school, not a symptom. Just like with all Trumpism – based on bullying, arrogance, and hatred.

I'm suddenly in favor of building a wall…around Covington Catholic High in KY. And let's electrify it to keep those disgusting punks from getting loose and creating more vileness in society.

Expressing joy that high school kids fear for their life now that the media has irresponsibly made them America’s most famous racists.
And of course do what they did to Kavanaugh – get ahold of the yearbook.
Anna Merlan is the Jezebel feminist who wrote this story after someone had the audacity to suggest that the UVA rape on campus story in Rolling Stone might not be credible.
Now she’s trying to use her platform to dox and ruin the lives of high school kids based on a 60 second video she saw of a kid staring at a Native American elder. This is the media.
But wait, it turns out the victim actually approached the students while banging on his drum.
“Covington Catholic student bothering elder man” yet here is evidence of the man approaching them during their school cheer not disturbing anyone. Doesn’t make sense pic.twitter.com/SRYRJOIoKf

Oh look, he approached them. Banging on a drum. An adult instigated a group of teenage boys chanting and dancing by encroaching on where they were standing. Then he played the victim when one of the boys stood in front of him and stared at him, thus giving him the attention he obviously wanted.
Then he continued to bang the drum in the kid’s face.
Consistent with the student’s story, the tension begins to build as Phillips beats the drum in the student’s face for several minutes. When an argument breaks out between a student and a Native American, the student with the drum in his face turns back and tries to defuse it. pic.twitter.com/LvTpUADKD7

Again, he is an ADULT approaching a group of high school kids. But because he’s diverse and they’re not, he’s the victim.
Then there’s this video, once again showing the Native American dude approaching the group of CHILDREN from afar, and banging his drum. They respond by dancing, which is what people often do when there’s a good beat.
This video seems to back this student's statement.
"Here’s the entire unedited video with original sound of the Covington High School/Nathan Phillips encounter via – watch, listen and decide for yourself. "

Oh, and he wasn’t alone either, as his buddy tells the other kids, “you white people go back to Europe, this is not your land.”

Adults taunting and harassing kids, followed by kids acting douchey and arrogant. That’s what happened here.
The evidence was overwhelming.
More Media Lies
There was no #MAGA mob hounding a Native American
Mult Native Americans instigated an incident walking into a peaceful group of kids & taunting one chanting & drumming inches fm his face
No one said "Build the Wall"
& if anything
That kid deserves a peace medal pic.twitter.com/lPbPtQtTh7
— Jim Hanson (@Uncle_Jimbo) January 20, 2019
We now have a 2 hour raw recording of the MAGA kids incident.
We can see
No chanting "build the wall" as far as I saw
Native group approaches about an hour after the kids were already there

Witnesses (other students) dispute everything the mainstream media has been saying. According to kids, and confirmed in the video, you can hear the kids chanting their school cheers, when a group of four or five African-American men start berating them and the “victim” chooses to walk towards them and taunt them with his drum.

The kids start dancing because….they’re kids.

Just finished talking with Kids who were at the protest.
They were there for “March for Lives” not protesting against Native Americans.
Read their responses. pic.twitter.com/kg6GtvZGRL

And wouldn’t ya know it? The “victim” is a professional protester who loves the media spotlight.

When I first saw the video I thought it was just another stupid media freakout over nothing. Turns out the victim is actually a world class douchebag. He is an ADULT who intentionally provoked a group of teenagers who were minding their own business, being loud, and chanting their high schools cheers. He didn’t have to walk up to them banging his drum, but he did so anyway. He repeatedly banged his drum in a kid’s face, and the kid responded by looking at him smugly. Then he ran to the media and cried about it like the whiny little bitch that his. Now the kid has been doxxed, it will now be much harder for him to get into college or obtain employment, and he will be a meme for eternity. And the ONLY reason this is a story is because the kid is white, and he was wearing a MAGA hat.
The mainstream media is the enemy of the American people.
