    Forget the link....this story is all over the place and there are two totally different accounts of what happened.

    The kid says the entire event has been manipulated by the media. That what really happened is nothing like what the NYT and other radical Leftists outlets are saying.

    SURELY in this day and age there has to be some video recording of exactly what occurred and the entire context?

    Moral of the story....considering the political climate right now....don't be stupid and go out in MAGA hats or to ANY political public event without having constant video being recorded to prove what really happened. This IS NOT your Fathers America. It's becoming a fascist hell hole.

    If you're innocent, post the video on social media. (If the left doesn't block you from posting it...since the left actually does control ALL social media)

    And if you can't post it on social media, post it directly on forums like this.

    This nation is sinking fast.

    The MSM portrayed the young men as trouble-making racists and nothing could be further from the truth. The MSM wanted to depict White Trump supporters in a bad light and they fabricated the entire account. In an article dated January 20, 2019, Robby Soave, an associate editor at Reason.com, wrote what really happened. There is no evidence the media-maligned students did anything wrong; instead it appears the students were victims of the bad behavior of others. The following are relevant portions of Soave's article:

    “Partial video footage of students from a Catholic high school allegedly harassing a Native American veteran after the anti-abortion March for Life rally in Washington, D.C., over the weekend quickly went viral, provoking widespread condemnation of the kids on social media. Various media figures and Twitter users called for them to be doxed, shamed, or otherwise punished, and school administrators said they would consider expulsion.

    “But the rest of the video—nearly two hours of additional footage showing what happened before and after the encounter—adds important context that strongly contradict's the media's narrative.

    “Far from engaging in racially motivated harassment, the group of mostly white, MAGA-hat-wearing male teenagers remained relatively calm and restrained despite being subjected to incessant racist, homophobic, and bigoted verbal abuse by members of the bizarre religious sect Black Hebrew Israelites, who were lurking nearby. The BHI has existed since the late 19th century, and is best describes as a black nationalist cult movement; its members believe they are descendants of the ancient Israelites, and often express condemnation of white people, Christians, and gays. DC-area Black Hebrews are known to spout particularly vile bigotry.”

    “You can judge for yourself. Here is video footage of the full incident, from the perspective of the black nationalists. Phillips enters the picture around the 1:12 mark, but if you skip to that part, you miss an hour of the Black Hebrew Israelites hurling obscenities at the students. They call them crackers, faggots, and pedophiles. At the 1:20 mark (which comes after the Phillips incident) they call one of the few black students the n-word and tell him that his friends are going to murder him and steal his organs. At the 1:25 mark, they complain that "you give faggots rights," which prompted booing from the students. Throughout the video they threaten the kids with violence, and attempt to goad them into attacking first. The students resisted these taunts admirably: They laughed at the hecklers, and they perform a few of their school's sports cheers.”

    The Media Wildly Mischaracterized That Video of Covington Catholic Students Confronting a Native American Veteran

    There are definitely two sides to this story and one of them is false. Now, all you fine folks can watch the actual video and make your own informed decisions as to what really happened.
