Over the weekend, leftist Twitter mobs hounded a group of Catholic students who APPEARED to confront an Indian. But the truth has finally emerged. Fox News reports:
The Kentucky high school student seen in a viral video standing-face-to-face with a Native American protester at a Washington rally spoke out for the first time Sunday evening, claiming in a statement that he and his classmates were taunted by a group of African-American protesters and saying that he and his family had received death threats.
Nick Sandmann, a junior at Covington Catholic High School, said he was “mortified that so many people have come to believe something that did not happen — that students from my school were chanting or acting in a racist fashion toward African Americans or Native Americans. I did not do that, do not have hateful feelings in my heart and did not witness any of my classmates doing that.”
The students initially were accused of mocking a Native American participant in the Indigenous Peoples March, which coincided with the March for Life. A snippet of video from the apparent confrontation quickly gained traction on social media, with many condemning the students — some of whom were wearing “Make America Great Again” apparel — and some calling for them to be identified and harassed. The Roman Catholic Diocese of Covington and the high school issued a joint statement apologizing to the activist, identified as Nathan Phillips Saturday.
However, the emergence of longer video that appears to show some students being harassed prompted some conservatives to take back their earlier criticisms of the students.
This is an egregious abuse of power, and shows to the nation the vileness of leftists.
Those young men were standing there minding their own business while wasting for their bus. They were not actively bothering anyone. Except there were those that were resented their presence, what they represented, and their apparel. They were subjected to insults and taunts but chose not to respond in kind. A man with a drum walked up and got in their face. But they stood their ground and did not flinch. Those young men responded with self control and dignity. They are owed an apology by everyone concerned. That includes their school that failed to support them.
The Native American tried to provoke an innocent peaceful teenager minding his own business. A young man already being cursed at and taunted by a group of racist cowards. He failed. I’d have liked to see the kid just tun and walk away.
Or even better takes his drum and throw it away
Why is it that these cowards always confront peaceful people going about their business. This old Native American chose to get in the face of a nice kid minding his own business and already being taunted and insulted by left wing racists .
Those kids acted like true gentlemen and should have been commended by the press instead of vilified by a make believe bit of fake news. The hate mongers never try to approach neo nazis or ultra right wingers who would hand their assess to them. Hey , violence begets violence, and it’s all these left wing morons understand
These lies have put those high school children in danger of physical violence and death threats from the liberal, progressive, and Democrat “GOONS”. A lot of people owe those high school kids a big apology, and those who instigated this sham, the black Jews and the Native Americans, should be punished for endangering children for their own political goals.
Anyone who EVER votes for ANY DemonCRAP (socialist/communist) Party candidate or politician has already proven that they are anti-American and want the further destruction of the US. Why would ANYONE with brains want things such as transgender bathrooms, unions, criminals voting, illegal aliens, higher taxes, frivolous lawsuits, more government control, Muslim terrorism, less law enforcement, release of prisoners, total gun control and confiscation, teenage voters, LGBTQ power, BLM, AntiFa, increased racism, punishing the wealthy, a single political party forever, gay marriage, climate control and ridiculous environmental restrictions, banishment of all religions except for Islam ( and of course, Jews want Judaism which completely CONFLICTS with Islam, but go figure…..), destruction of American culture in order to push TURD WORLD cultures, reduction of private businesses to promote government owned businesses, punishment of White males, increased feminism, support for socialist governments of the world, increased support of homelessness, revoking of the US Constitution and Bill Of Rights, sanctuary cities, allowing more drugs and government funding of drug usage, government paid abortions on demand and many more examples of the dissembling of the US done by anti-American brainless idiots? Can ANY DemonCRAP dispute or discuss any of their party platform points, as listed above, intelligently, and without hostility?
I think it is disgusting how the students were treated. Between the Black Hebrew Israelites that were yelling racist and homophobic at the students and the Native American Veteran that walked up into the face of the student chanting and drumming, I felt that the kids handled it quite well. Yes, students did dance to the drum music which should not be seen as disrespectful as they seemed to be enjoying the beat, not mocking. The one student held his ground while having a drum right in his face which was reasonable and couldn’t help but smile because of the kids around him, but he was not being disrespectful and he was there first. Yes, most of us would have backed up or moved because it is uncomfortable having someone right up in your face, he just chose not to and that’s not a crime.
People need to get all the facts before judging and making death threats or other harmful threats is unacceptable in the first place and a worse crime than anything that occurred in what little snip of video was first shown. Disgusting.
