Do you have anything to back up the accusation of faking his Vietnam service or is this ****-kicking of the finest Republican tradition?

I covered it in detail in this thread already.

Long story short, he would have been 17 at the very oldest and would have to have cut his training short to have been a combat infantryman in the marines in Vietnam.

He claimed he was in the recon rangers, which is a song lyric but not a real thing.

Not skeptical regarding his claim, huh?

Lots of police and protesters tomorrow at the school, all because some fraud of a race grifter whipped up the ignorant Resistance into a spittle soaked frenzy.

Man, the left is so ******* broken

We have already pointed out that Marines were in Vietnam as late as 1975, when he would have been 21.

I don't know what his actual service record is - but neither do you.

Combat infantrymen? Huh. Could be... could be...

Well, we can agree that he wasn’t in the recon rangers right?

So the Right Wing PR machine went into overtime to try and exonerate the Hitler Youth of Kentucky. The school even hired a far right public relations company to help them construct the laughable argument that they were really the victims!


So here we have this little toxic school with a documented history of producing rapists and bullies. Where the kids wear blackface to basketball games. Where the entire staff has not a single person of color.



But they were the victims.


Sure. Well I've watched all the videos and nothing I've seen vindicates them. Nothing I've seen has changed my mind.


Nice try. But no dice.

Mr. Phillips can easily provide proof of his military service. People are already working on obtaining his records, should he decline to do so.

You see, the MAGA teens only retaliated with racist rants in defense against racist rants that were being shouted at them. Therefore, it's okay..................

Yeah, they were the victims, clearly. Everything the race grifter said is proven false by the videos. All lies. No building of the wall chants, no being surrounded, nothing.

Not surprised that you are defaming the school based on lies though. They are just kids after all....

False, no racist chants whatsoever, typical lies originally supplied by the race grifter.

The racist rants were from the Black Hebrew hate group, as already proven.

I just did. I can't see any justification for the racist way that the MAGA kids acted. Hooting and hollering like apes at the black people? Really?! Making fun of the Native Americans?

Yes, the Black Isrealites were saying toxic things, but the racist response to them isn't right.

Skeptical is one thing. Making stuff up another.

Like crescent said, I don't know what his actual service record is - but neither do you.

But if he isn't a real veteran, it's okay to be racist towards him, AMIRIGHT TBD?

You mean where they called him a demon.... oh wait, they was the Black Hebrews...

Oh wait, when they said that they should go back to Europe... oh wait, that was his gaggle of supporters after he walked up and confronted the kids.

Maybe it was the 15 year old girl wearing a Trump hat... oh wait, that was him terrifying her.

Well, I guess we are just going to have to go right ahead and take your word for it, just like we will take his word that he was combat marine infantryman in Vietnam as part of recon rangers ...

So having watched the video, you now know that the claim that the kids approached him and surrounded him was a lie; that the claim they said build the wall, as a lie; that the claim that the boys were beasts and the Black Hebrew hate group were their prey, also a lie.

However, the Black Hebrews called the Phillips group “$5 Indians” and “rented Natives”

But they were the "prey"

Vietnam veteran

Quote:
According to the US Department of Labor, the Vietnam Era Veterans' Readjustment Assistance Act of 1974 (VEVRAA) states, "A Vietnam era veteran is a person who

served on active duty anywhere in the world for a period of more than 180 days, any part of which occurred between August 5, 1964 and May 7, 1975, and was discharged or released with other than a dishonorable discharge.
was discharged or released from active duty for a service connected disability if any part of such active duty was performed between August 5, 1964 and May 7, 1975.

In 2004, the US Census Bureau reported there were 8.2 million Vietnam era veterans who were living in the U.S.,[needs update] 2.59 million of them being reported to have actually served "in country."
I used to work for a man who was a Vietnam Veteran, but never set foot "In Country". He served on an aircraft carrier. There were a lot of ways to be considered a Veteran of that war.

The tomahawk chants in response to the Native American drumming would be the racist response.

I was in the Navy between 2002 and 08. I would never call myself an enduring freedom vet. Or whatever they call what they gave everyone defense service medals for.

ETA: I wouldn't even call myself a veteran. They wasted six years of my time and I wasted six years of theirs.

Nope, it is proof they were doing the tomahawk chop and chanting. You do not know their motivations for doing it, you're just assuming it was racist.

I saw tens of thousands of people doing the tomahawk chop and chant on television last night during the Chiefs game, was that racism also?

I saw tens of thousands of people doing the tomahawk chop and chant on television last night during the Chiefs game, was that racism also?
The tomahawk chop, chanting and the whooping are racist reactions to the Native Americans. You can choose to deny it, but that's all you are doing, denying the truth. Their behavior is as bad as wearing blackface.

And yes, the tomahawk chop and chant at the Chiefs game is racist.

Racism doesn't have to be directed at someone to be racism.

Yeah, I will need more than you jumping to conclusions based on zero evidence and only your presumptions, thanks for not trying to convince me because I'm not interested.

Several major media news outlets tried to convince me there was a group of racist teenagers harassing a native American over the weekend based on the color of their skin and the hats they were wearing. Didn't work then, won't work now.

Racists often have a hard time seeing blatant racism when it happens, not that I'm implying that you are racist.

Strange that, I didn't notice any native-Americans on the football team the fans were chanting at. How do you explain that?

I don't see many black people at Klan rallies, but I think Klanners do racist things at them.
