Native American Drummer Accosted MAGA Catholic School Kids, Made To Regret It

Native American activist and tribal elder Nathan Phillips, who was caught on video in what appeared at first to be a face-off with MAGA Catholic school kids, was not the innocent “Indian playing the drum.” In fact, after CNN and other mainstream news outlets attacked the MAGA kids, longer videoes emerged showing a very different story. Now, the Native American leftist activist was made to regret accosting the kids. Don’t miss this.

Nathan Phillips, the Native American drummer, has made salacious allegations against a group of MAGA Catholic school kids who were in Washington, D.C. to attend the March For Life, the pro-life rally. And just like the fake news which plagues President Donald Trump, these MAGA kids are also victims of the leftist media.

CNN had to retract their earlier reports as the longer videos emerged. At the beginning of the longer videos, the kids are waiting for their buses to go back to Kentucky when the fringe group called the Hebrew Israelites started to scream at the kids.

“The [Herbrew Israelites] accuse them of reaping the benefits of slave labor. The men repeatedly use the n-word to refer to the black teens in the group, prompting cries from group,” CNN reports. The men ask the students if the water they’re drinking “tastes like incest” and call the students “young Klansmen.” The teens listen for a few minutes longer, accusing the men of being racist and booing when the main speaker uses the word “faggots” when talking about equal rights.

In a statement, Covington Catholic High School student Nick Sandmann said the students decided to raise their voices to drown out the Hebrew Israelites’ inflammatory comments — not to intimidate or mock Phillips. “A student in our group asked one of our teacher chaperones for permission to begin our school spirit chants to counter the hateful things that were being shouted at our group,” Sandmann said in his statement.

“The chants are commonly used at sporting events. They are all positive in nature and sound like what you would hear at any high school,” he said. In fact, it was Phillips who at this point approached the MAGA Catholic school kids beating his drum. He got right up into that kid’s face. But the teens were already chanting their spirit songs to drown out the vile comments by the Hebrew Israelites.

Nathan Phillips is part of the extreme leftist “Occupy Movement” and a Trump-hater who has cried wolf before. In April 2015, Phillips made nearly identical allegations four years ago in a case involving students from Eastern Michigan University. Phillips claimed the teens were chanting “Build the wall, build the wall” and “Trump 2020.”

Except, none of those chants, “Build the wall” or “Trump 2020,” are heard on any video that has surfaced. 

Take this story from FOX2 from April of 2015 and see if it sounds familiar to you.“An Ypsilanti man [Nathan Phillips] says he was trying to teach a few students dressed in American Indian theme party about respecting Native Americans,” the station reported. “Not long afterward, Nathan Phillips said that in an interaction with party-goers and students turned ugly.”

According to Phillips, while out on an afternoon walk, he spotted EMU students dressed in Native American garb. Phillips said the students invited him over.

After he walked over, he says he found dozens of students dressed up as Native Americans for a theme party. “They had their face painted,” Phillips said. “Then they started whooping and hollering,” he added. “I said that wasn’t honoring, that was racist. Then at that time, it really got ugly.”

“Ugly” included racial slurs and a beer can hurled at him. “(They said) ‘Go back to the reservation, you blank Indian,’” Phillips said. Phillips called the police, but when they arrived, they didn’t find any evidence of what he says happened. “By the time police got there, it was like there was no party there at all,” Phillips said.

Phillips leveled similar accusations against the MAGA Catholic school kids. He claimed the teen blocked his path as he tried to keep moving. “I was scared,” Phillips told CNN’s Sara Sidner. “I don’t like the word ‘hate.’ I don’t like even saying it, but it was hate unbridled. It was like a storm.”

Even after the longer version does not back up his story, Phillips is sticking to his story. But he is being made to regret it as the truth comes out.

Conservative reporter and former Army Special Forces Jim Hanson tweeted, “More Media Lies — There was no #MAGA mob hounding a Native American. Multiple Native Americans instigated an incident walking into a peaceful group of kids & taunting one chanting & drumming inches from his face. No one said ‘Build the Wall’ & if anything that kid deserves a peace medal.”

The MAGA Catholic school kid, Nick Sandmann, has had death threats against him and his family thanks to Nathan Phillips’ lies and the leftist media. These Catholic school kids were there to attend the pro-life rally. They gave up their weekend, not to attend parties but to march in freezing weather against abortion. These are good kids, who also love President Donald Trump, and for that, there was a rush to judgment.

Shame on the leftist media and shame on Nathan Phillips. As for the Hebrew Israelites, they are a fringe group who are a pack of nutjobs. It was Phillips who wanted his 15 minutes of fame by accosting kids wearing MAGA hats, and then he tried to spin a tale of hatred. I’m sick and tired of the mainstream media making Trump supporters out to be racist. Make sure your family and friends know the truth about Phillips and these MAGA Catholic school kids.
