The anti-abortion crowds are getting small as the god-botherers are dying off.

I won't speak on his behalf, as I don't know what his intentions were. You claim to know, and I think it'll be fairly evident by now that nothing I say will change your mind, and I have no desire to do that anyway so....ok. Whatever you say. I would point out that the person wearing the MAGA hat knows exactly what he's doing as well. Just because you guys deny that there is anything negative about wearing that hat and it's just supporting the POTUS is complete ******** that anyone can see through in a heartbeat.

Kind of like characterizing a guy softly hitting a drum and singing as walking up to everyone and beating a drum in their face? Tell me more.

They're making blatantly racist actions towards a Native American. Again, I get that you're trying your ******* damndest to minimize that but it's right there in the video. I saw you downplay it as "I've seen worse watching a Braves or Chiefs game". Which, again, fine. That's how you want to play it, play it that way but don't expect me to buy that same ******** excuse.

In my world. As I've said before now, a couple times. They're both doing deplorable, stupid, ignorant **** to each other. One is not better than the other. I get that to you they are because you've got an obvious bias in this.

Oh come on. They reacted to a man walking, singing a song and banging a drum like he was approaching with a megaphone saying their school sucks and their father smelt of elderberries.


That...is problematic.

I'm not surprised that teenagers wearing MAGA hats are deplorable, with the caveat at the bottom.

I'm not surprised that the Native American guy provoked the confrontation, although I expect more from adults than teens.

I'm not surprised there are hateful religious fanatics like the "Black Israelites".

I expect better from the media. As the facts emerge, I expect the outlets that told a misleading story to correct the record / tell a fuller story. (I hope to have time later today to see which outlets did and didn't knee-jerk.)

I'm not surprised that people reacted to the crappy news coverage the way they did, what with people being suckers. I expect reasonable people to adjust to the facts as they emerge however.

I'm not surprised that the discussion here turns tribal. However, I don't think it's reasonable to use any of the actors here as representative.

I'm perpetually surprised that the President of the United States embodies a mind-boggling list of negative characteristics, any one of which should cause a rational, non-bigoted adult to recoil in disgust. It's appalling that the school would allow the teens to wear hate symbols on a school outing, but that's a sign of the topsy-turvy times we live in.


What about the fact that this was a school trip to a forced birth rally? How freaking weird is that?

Catholic schools demand better standards of behaviour than that where I come from, maybe the Bishop in charge of that diocese in Kentucky needs to sack a few people.

No one was harassing a veteran.

The actual hate group was harassing the high school kids and now The Resistance is actively doxxing 16 year olds on Twitter because the Resistance swallowed the story fed to them by race grifters.

Then how can you say he's as bad as anybody else? You don't half talk some rot. First you claim each group is as bad as the next, then you admit you haven't a clue what their intentions were.

Suddenly, the man who's unable to assign motive to a guy he actually sees performing on video is an expert on the motives of tens of millions of hat-wearing people across the 52 states. When you're in a hole...

Well I don't agree with calling people racist names and I also don't agree with gassing Jews, but at least I'm honest enough to distinguish between their severity.

It's very divisive right now. That said, I suspect that.. certain.. people refuse to condemn the teens for their actions, and only point out how the leftists are doing all the damage.

That said, if people want to wear MAGA hats, let them. It lets me know who the idiots are.

Stacyhs 20th January 2019 01:34 PM

This thread has been an interesting read. It exemplifies the extreme partisanship that this country is experiencing.

As an ex-teacher who has take many, many field trips with my students, I have to wonder about the school chaperones and their failure to control and direct their charges. The Black Israelites were despicable but the chaperones should have moved the students away from them and instructed them not to interact with or react to them. As the adults, they should have recognized a potentially explosive situation and avoided it. Teen boys are going to be teen boys: get a bunch of them together and they're going to feed off each other's stupidity and immaturity as the video shows they did.

If the chaperones had done their job responsibly, none of what ensued would have occurred.

It is not clear at all that it is a "lie." I mean we do have video of Smarmy Smarmism staring down a man that is just trying to perform a song. You do accept that is real, right?

“Just trying to play a song.” Total lie. He also claimed he was surrounded and could not retreat. Liar.

The claim that the tweet from the frantic anti free speech democrat is parody is likelwise a total lie.

Although the suggestion that he is using a news report quoting the Native American as saying it was scary and racism, and accusing kids from his state of racism is just the sort of sick ******* twist a scumbag Congress critter like this democrat would think is funny.

I can't get the audio on the tweet in the OP and really have no interest in looking at the longer version (at least right now). Watching that brief snippet without audio was interesting. My impression is that kid was nervous. The fixed grin looked like bravado to me, not contempt. I was kind of triggered by the body language all around. Not in a pro-Trump or anti-Trump way - more like general dismay at the high level of emotionalism I picked up on. IMO we need a way to pull back from the brink.

Well that's it, then, end of thread. Any kid who dares to stare at an adult who walks over to them and starts banging a drum is clearly the most vile of racists.

smartcooky 20th January 2019 02:00 PM

And the school appears to have responded...

"Kentucky Catholic high school is considering expelling students who were captured in viral videos taunting a Native American veteran on Friday.

In the videos, a large group of teenage boys – including several wearing Covington Catholic High School sweatshirts – are seen chanting and surrounding a small group of Native Americans, who were attending the Indigenous Peoples March in Washington, D.C. One of the boys, wearing a red “Make America Great Again” hat, smirks and stands close to an elderly Native American man, who was later identified as Vietnam veteran Nathan Phillips."


No investigation necessary, its obvious what they did. Expel all of them now!

The Catholic Church, and every donor should be reviewing or removing their funding from this school if they don't permanently expel all of the boys involved. This kind of behaviour is completely unacceptable - punishment needs to be swift and without mercy.

If you watch the rest of the video I'd submit that the restraint and good behaviour by the kids in the face of that constant barrage of aggressive, racist, homophobic abuse from the black preachers, or whatever they are, should be roundly commended. Certainly if someone spoke like that to me I'd do more than shrug or move away, I'd flatten them.

My impression of the 'fixed grin' was the same as yours: bravado.
