Covington: Innocent white teenagers framed by hostile media

American mainstream media reported this week that a group of white school children harassed a group of Native American, black and minority adults when footage of the interaction shows that the exact opposite happened.

Published: January 22, 2019, 6:39 am

    A group of American high school boys from Covington Catholic attended the pro-life march in Washington and visited the Lincoln Memorial. During their visit, they were verbally attacked by a group of black, anti-European racists.

    The black adults were screaming at teenagers, “you little dirty ass crackers, your day coming” and “I will stick my foot in your ass!” The aggressive adults shouting racial epithets at children, were made out to be the victims by the mainstream media in this case however.

    Because the teenagers had been wearing MAGA hats, this became a national news story in the US with President Trump wading into the debate after Washington Post readers described the white teenagers as a neo-lynch mob.

    Trump defended the students of Covington Catholic High School on Monday night saying they may have been “treated unfairly” and “smeared by [the] media”. Trump tweeted. “Not good, but making big comeback!

    “New footage shows that media was wrong about teen’s encounter with Native American,” he added, quoting conservative journalist Tucker Carlson.

    Tucker gave examples of how leftist media pundits unfairly attacked the children before getting the facts, including Bill Kristol who “quietly deleted” his tweet when the footage came out.

    “[W]hen the actual facts emerged, Kristol quietly deleted his tweet,” Tucker noted. “He never apologized of course. He hasn’t apologized for the Iraq War, either.”

    It now turns out that the black adult Nathan Phillips has a history of appearing in the media claiming to be a victim of anti-Native racism.  BigLeaguePolitics reported that Phillips was not simply a random Native man who was accosted by “racist” MAGA-hat wearing teens, but is connected to leftist activists who donate large sums to leftist causes.

    “[Phillips] is a Vietnam Veteran and former director of the Native Youth Alliance,” according to Heavy.

    The well-funded Native Youth Leadership Alliance – which claims that it is not associated with Phillips – is currently promoting Phillips’ fundraising campaign stemming from the incident with the Catholic teens.

    Despite doing nothing wrong, the white Covington teenagers were subjected to a sustained 48 hour barrage of violent abuse, threats and doxxing on Twitter, with tech giants nothing about the hate directed at the children.

    A musician known as “Uncle Shoes” incited murder against the teenagers after he tweeted: “If you are a true fan of Shoes I want you to fire on any of these red hat bitches when you see them. On sight. Lock the kids in the school and burn that bitch to the ground.”

    Hollywood producer Jack Morrissey said the children should “go screaming, hates first, into the woodchipper” while author Kevin Allred maintained that all white people were terrorists. He is white himself.

    When users reported the threats to Twitter, they responded by saying the tweets did not violate their guidelines.

    Nick Sandmann, Covington Catholic High School Junior, on Sunday night tweeted the “factual account of what happened on Friday afternoon at the Lincoln Memorial to correct misinformation and outright lies being spread about my family and me”. But the mainstream media ignored his account.

    Sandmann said: “At no time did I hear any student chant anything other than the school spirit chants. I did not witness or hear any students chant ‘build that wall’ or anything hateful or racist at any time. Assertions to the contrary are simply false. Our chants were loud because we wanted to drown out the hateful comments that were being shouted at us by the protestors.”

    Most alarmingly, the Kentucky diocese betrayed its own youth along with the pro-life movement by supporting the propaganda against it.

    In a joint statement on Saturday, the school and Diocese of Covington said they would “take appropriate action, up to and including expulsion” of the teenagers.

    “We condemn the actions of the Covington Catholic High School students towards Nathan Phillips specifically, and Native Americans in general, Jan. 18, after the March for Life, in Washington, D.C. We extend our deepest apologies to Mr. Phillips. This behavior is opposed to the Church’s teachings on the dignity and respect of the human person,” the statement read.

    The high school, just south of Cincinnati, is a private, all-boys school with about 550 students, according to
