MAGA brats mock Native American with "build the wall" chants

Shortly after Trump won the election, and I was busy finding doomsday prep types to start hanging out with, I was with my friend who was getting married soon. He started talking about how he might have kids with his soon to be wife. I told him he was crazy to bring a kid into the world of Trump

This is a story about kids that have gone to the side of evil and embraced MAGA.


Two days ago there was a rally for forced birth degenerates in Washington DC. That same day some Native Americans decided to have a vigil with songs near the Vietnam Memorial (which is also near the Lincoln Memorial) and some kids from a high school in Kentucky, Covington Catholic, wandered over from the debauchery of the forced birth rally to inflict some misery on the Native Americans.


https://twitter.com/UncededClothing/...10180328722434


They surrounded them. Started chanting "build the wall" and at least one of them got in real close and seemed to try and do a stare down. Thankfully the man, Nathan Philips of the Omaha Tribe (and a Vietnam veteran) chose not to engage with evil that day and just continued his song.


But this is where we are. Trump has so debased our nation and infected our children with his diseased ideas that we now have this brooding SA to inflict misery on anyone they perceive as not white enough to be MAGA. Racism given a wash of acceptability by our Cretin In Chief who, even now, continues to try and get a monument to racism built on the southern border.



It was always obvious that all roads from Trump led to a world less civil and more infused with hate. Here we are.

What is even the logic of using "build the wall" to taunt a Native American?

Not raising them very bright over at that Kentucky high school it seems.

This is what happens when your "teacher" is also your mom-sister. Home schooling for the win.

More reddit-style circle jerk from a bunch of white boomers. For a skeptics forum, one would expect to see if this story is factually true before commencing.

Nice story brah, too bad it never happened.

It was the elderly man who "wandered over" to the group of high school kids and began to inflict them with some misery. The kids were chanting CCS (their school) when the man walked up to them, banged his drum in order to disrupt kids on a high school field trip.

https://mobile.twitter.com/mariajudy...81831804674048

The kids actually remained calm despite an adult trying to make their outing as miserable as possible.

The media has made it clear they are willing to lie to the public and smear children in order to advance their agenda. "Skeptics" continue to fall for it again and again. Case in point:

No original thoughts just copying the astroturfers on reddit.

What's even more disturbing is the thread starter is willing to resort to child murder and infanticide. And "skeptics" are willing to ignore this and jump straight to smearing a bunch of teenagers.

Um that does not show anything of the sort. They are all already there. And considering how abjectly evil Trumpers are I'm inclined to believe they instigated it because it follows the pattern of Trump supporters being totally bereft of even the smallest inkling of humanity. They are a cancer best ripped out and discarded.

I'd like to invite you to check out this website: www.gjopen.com
See how you do making predictions about current world events. From that you might discover whether or not your understanding of the world is particularly valid, and you might notice a trend in how you analyse the questions that you get right and how you approach the questions that you turn out to get wrong.

My own prediction is that you won't do very well, but feel free to prove me wrong.

Don't forget traitors to their country. It's ironic that Trump supporters care so much about immigration when they aren't real Americans.

That kid with the smirk is so ******. By this time tomorrow we'll know his name, where he lives, we already know he goes to a Covington Catholic High School in Covington, Kentucky. He's in for a massive public shaming. He's going to be toxic to colleges. Social media is going to take its revenge.

At the time of your 6-second clip, the kids had altered their chant to time with the drumming, and even in this short clip several of the students, particularly in the front and right, are already engaged in mocking "Indian dancing".

The situation started earlier, when several of the high school students were taunting a group of black Israelites (misidentified by a chaperone of the students in one report as "black Muslims", oddly enough), the tail end of which can be seen at the beginning of this video. Because of this taunting, the Native American group began singing a conciliation prayer and interposed itself between the high schoolers and the black Israelites.

The short video you posted, either by virtue of being filmed vertically or as an editing decision, does not show the black protesters or the segment of the high schoolers that had been taunting them, both groups being past the edges of the shot.

As seen in the video I posted, in which you can hear the beginning of the drumming as it starts, the small group of Natives is almost immediately surrounded and followed by a small crowd of young people with phones, and doing the "Indian dancing" in mockery.

These kids might be jerks, but the supposedly adult people who are gloating about the probability that one of these kids will get beaten up by a stranger certainly aren't any better.

Here is the full 2 hour video of the whole event.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UQyBHTTqb38

I can't be bothered to watch the whole thing, but everything I've seen is reprehensible from just about everybody involved, particularly the so-called "black Israelites". If I'd been anywhere near this I would have left as soon as possible.

As usual you're lying.
1. Mr. Phillips didn't initiate the confrontation, the morons from Covington did. As shown in the video you haven't bothered to watch.
2. They weren't chanting 'CCS'.
3. They weren't on a "high school field trip"; they'd been bussed to DC to make up numbers at a RCC anti-abortion rights demonstration.

Approaching fractal wrongness there.

Mr Phillips appears at 1 hour 12 minutes in. Certainly looks to me like he is wandering towards the MAGA hat wearing group.

The relevant part starts at about 1:12, although I've not scoured the video to see what events there might or might not be a response to.

There may be things in the OP I'd agree with, but I'm so turned off by all the gratuitous nastiness, hyperbole, and hand-wringing that everything else was lost in the noise and I can't be arsed to re-read to check and I'll just say that I don't want to be associated with anything in the OP.

So what we have is a group of white kids, god knows what they're doing but they're well behaved and non-violent (and even get chided for their failure to be violent by the black guys).

We have a guy with a drum who walks over the kids. They watch him. One smirks at him. Nothing happens. Then he leaves.

And we have a group of blacks who are shouting, swearing, repeatedly using racist language, screaming '******! ******! ******!', coming out with homophobic abuse and urging violence.

And the take-away from this?

Whites are evil. Trump is evil.

It's so funny. This is what happens when the far left feed off each other on the internet and disappear so far up their own arses that they lose touch with reality.


EDIT: And I didn't hear anybody mention 'The Wall'. Likely another lie from the lunatic left.

Or as CNN would report it: "Taitano said the whole incident started when the teens and four young African-Americans, who'd been preaching about the Bible nearby, started yelling and calling each other names."

I'm sure "the most trusted name in news" will eventually get around to showing the widely available YouTube video of these "four young African-Americans who had been preaching about the Bible nearby" ranting about the evils of the United States and its acceptance of homosexuals.


I will also leave this here for Travis who believes these high school students "wandered" over to the Native American vigil at the Vietnam Memorial Wall (despite video showing them at the steps of the Lincoln Memorial at least 200 yards away from the wall)to start trouble.

Quote:
It got pretty intense, Taitano said, so Nathan Phillips, an elder with the Omaha tribe, started playing his drum and chanting what she was told was a healing prayer, to help defuse the situation.
Phillips walked through the crowd, and Taitano said things were starting to calm down until he got to the grinning boy seen in the video.
"This one kid just refused to move and he just got in Nathan's face," she said.
I highlighted of the obvious parts.

There is zero doubt left. Phillips walked through the crowd, approached the "smirking" MAGA hat wearing kid then stopped with his drum about 6 inches away from the kid's face.

And to think CNN gets upset when Trump calls them fake news.

Which is completely normal in the new outrage culture.

From The Daily Beast:

Quote:
As the videos began to circulate, the diocese said it was investigating. But as the criticism mounted, with public officials and celebrities joining in, the church and school issued the apology.
No time to investigate because the perpetually offended are really, really offended this time.

Before he walked up to the kid, the mocking chanting and chopping gestures already started. That is not acceptable behavior on the kidS' part.

He should really have been walking up to the bigoted homophobic preachers who were much worse than the students and tried to get them to calm down.

You may believe that it is unacceptable behavior, but I don't. It's the same kind of behavior I can see anytime I tune into a Chiefs or Braves game.

One of the students explains what happened to a local news station.
Quote:
In the midst of our cheers, we were approached by a group of adults led by Nathan Phillips, with Phillips beating his drum. They forced their way into the center of our group. We initially thought this was a cultural display because he was beating along to our cheers and so we clapped to the beat. He came to stand in front of one of my classmates who stood where he was, smiling and enjoying the experience. However, after multiple minutes of Mr. Phillips beating his drum directly in the face of my friend (mere centimeters from his nose) , we became confused and started wondering what was happening.
The video filmed and posted to Facebook by the black Israelites linked earlier shows the students cheering and chanting before and after Phillips approached them.

I would recommend watching some of the video mentioned above. The students are anything but a bunch of racist a-holes the media are portraying them as.

It seems to me like both sides are colouring the event. The "butter wouldn't melt" characterisation is laughable.

No time to investigate because the perpetually offended are really, really offended this time.
The rush to judgment is just against Trump supporters. It's hard to get worked up about "fairness" to a bunch of kids wearing racist hats.

It's quite amazing, but not surprising, that 30 seconds of behavior from a group of high school students is what is making national headlines after listening to the vile bigotry and racism displayed by the black dudes throughout that video.

They had MAGA hats on. They might as well have been wearing white sheets.

Horrible little brats. And what is wrong with their school bringing them to an anti-abortion rally anyway? I went to a Catholic school and, devout as they were, no way would the nuns ever have taken us for a day out on a political protest.

The full video completely exonerates the high schoolers, yet they are getting death threats from the Resistance.

And the address and contact information for their school is plastered all over Facebook.

Shocking. The gall of these whites to actually exercise their fundamental democratic right and attend a rally. Some of them were wearing Trump hats, for Christ's sake, and one of them had the audacity to dance around in front of his mates! The school should be shut down! The parents should be ashamed! Why can't they be like that group of blacks and shout homophobic slurs, encourage violence, swear, repeatedly scream the word '******' and liken people of different skin colour to 'cave men'.

I'm not interested in your racial agenda or your white backlash chip on your shoulder. A school should not be bringing its pupils to a political rally, and the behaviour of the kids in that video shows a bunch of ignorant brats who have no respect for their elders.

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.
