Nathan Philips, Filthy Marxist Liar - media piles on and lies along with him

Native American activist Nathan Phillips waded into the crowd and taunted the boys and then lied to the media about the facts.
James Martin.
Dan Horan
The Bishop of the Diocese.
All disgraceful public sinners in their rash judgement who attacked the boys over the lie and set up used against them.

I am the student in the video who was confronted by the Native American protestor. I arrived at the Lincoln Memorial at 4:30 p.m. I was told to be there by 5:30 p.m., when our busses were due to leave Washington for the trip back to Kentucky. We had been attending the March for Life rally, and then had split up into small groups to do sightseeing.
When we arrived, we noticed four African American protestors who were also on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial. I am not sure what they were protesting, and I did not interact with them. I did hear them direct derogatory insults at our school group.
The protestors said hateful things. They called us "racists," "bigots," "white crackers," "faggots," and "incest kids." They also taunted an African American student from my school by telling him that we would "harvest his organs." I have no idea what that insult means, but it was startling to hear.
Because we were being loudly attacked and taunted in public, 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. 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. Our chaperone gave us permission to use our school chants. We would not have done that without obtaining permission from the adults in charge of our group.
At no time did I hear any student chant anything other than the school spirit chants. I did not witness or hear any students chant "build that wall" or anything hateful or racist at any time. Assertions to the contrary are simply false. Our chants were loud because we wanted to drown out the hateful comments that were being shouted at us by the protestors.
After a few minutes of chanting, the Native American protestors, who I hadn't previously noticed, approached our group. The Native American protestors had drums and were accompanied by at least one person with a camera.
The protestor everyone has seen in the video began playing his drum as he waded into the crowd, which parted for him. I did not see anyone try to block his path. He locked eyes with me and approached me, coming within inches of my face. He played his drum the entire time he was in my face.
I never interacted with this protestor. I did not speak to him. I did not make any hand gestures or other aggressive moves. To be honest, I was startled and confused as to why he had approached me. We had already been yelled at by another group of protestors, and when the second group approached I was worried that a situation was getting out of control where adults were attempting to provoke teenagers.
I believed that by remaining motionless and calm, I was helping to diffuse the situation. I realized everyone had cameras and that perhaps a group of adults was trying to provoke a group of teenagers into a larger conflict. I said a silent prayer that the situation would not get out of hand.
During the period of the drumming, a member of the protestor's entourage began yelling at a fellow student that we "stole our land" and that we should "go back to Europe." I heard one of my fellow students begin to respond. I motioned to my classmate and tried to get him to stop engaging with the protestor, as I was still in the mindset that we needed to calm down tensions.
I never felt like I was blocking the Native American protestor. He did not make any attempt to go around me. It was clear to me that he had singled me out for a confrontation, although I am not sure why.
The engagement ended when one of our teachers told me the busses had arrived and it was time to go. I obeyed my teacher and simply walked to the busses. At that moment, I thought I had diffused the situation by remaining calm, and I was thankful nothing physical had occurred.
I never understood why either of the two groups of protestors were engaging with us, or exactly what they were protesting at the Lincoln Memorial. We were simply there to meet a bus, not become central players in a media spectacle. This is the first time in my life I've ever encountered any sort of public protest, let alone this kind of confrontation or demonstration.
I was not intentionally making faces at the protestor. I did smile at one point because I wanted him to know that I was not going to become angry, intimidated or be provoked into a larger confrontation. I am a faithful Christian and practicing Catholic, and I always try to live up to the ideals my faith teaches me -- to remain respectful of others, and to take no action that would lead to conflict or violence.
I harbor no ill will for this person. I respect this person's right to protest and engage in free speech activities, and I support his chanting on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial any day of the week. I believe he should re-think his tactics of invading the personal space of others, but that is his choice to make.
I am being called every name in the book, including a racist, and I will not stand for this mob-like character assassination of my family's name. My parents were not on the trip, and I strive to represent my family in a respectful way in all public settings.
I have received physical and death threats via social media, as well as hateful insults. One person threatened to harm me at school, and one person claims to live in my neighborhood. My parents are receiving death and professional threats because of the social media mob that has formed over this issue.
I love my school, my teachers and my classmates. I work hard to achieve good grades and to participate in several extracurricular activities. I am mortified that so many people have come to believe something that did not happen -- that students from my school were chanting or acting in a racist fashion toward African Americans or Native Americans. I did not do that, do not have hateful feelings in my heart, and did not witness any of my classmates doing that.
I cannot speak for everyone, only for myself. But I can tell you my experience with Covington Catholic is that students are respectful of all races and cultures. We also support everyone's right to free speech.
I am not going to comment on the words or account of Mr. Phillips, as I don't know him and would not presume to know what is in his heart or mind. Nor am I going to comment further on the other protestors, as I don't know their hearts or minds, either.
I have read that Mr. Phillips is a veteran of the United States Marines. I thank him for his service and am grateful to anyone who puts on the uniform to defend our nation. If anyone has earned the right to speak freely, it is a U.S. Marine veteran.

I can only speak for myself and what I observed and felt at the time. But I would caution everyone passing judgement based on a few seconds of video to watch the longer video clips that are on the internet, as they show a much different story than is being portrayed by people with agendas.
I provided this account of events to the Diocese of Covington so they may know exactly what happened, and I stand ready and willing to cooperate with any investigation they are conducting.

Vox, thank you for posting about this.

I am not sure why, this horrific injustice has affected me deeply. In poor health already, I have taken steps backwards in a slow recovery.
I have seen the group of black Muslim supremacists and heard what they were saying to these young boys, and I have seen all the rest, including: "Go back to Europe, racists." The cameras were ready, right where the known old Native American professional agitator and frequent TV guest needed them.

How is it possible, that these boys, who showed such restraint and patience in face of provocations by adults, were than condemned by priests, bishops, media "elites", school administrators, celebrities and wider public? Horrible threats were issued on twitter, and twitter accounts were not suspended. Some want to gather up the boys in the school building, and then
set in on fire.

This evil, this orchestrated persecution of Christian boys, has truly broken something in me.

The most vile disgusting aspect of this attack on innocent Catholic Christians is the piling on by their own school and their own BISHOP. The persecution from 'within'. Will they get so much as a simple 'apology'? From their OWN BISHOP?? Or even their own school officials? Don't hold your breath people! The only upside to this is that people of 'reason' and 'logic' (in other words, people with a brain to think with) are seeing the sheer stupidity of progressive Churchmen. "Sin makes one STUPID" applies here.

Hate speech is not tolerated on Twitter and other social media sites, unless it's directed at white Catholic young people been set up.

It would appear the gutless, leftist weasel Foys has shut down the Covington Diocese website. So like his (f)ather Francis.

Dorota, how sorry I am that you are experiencing poor health. Good grief I've read your comments so many times and see you're a soldier in the Church Militant, badly needed and so effective. God bless you for your contribution to the faith, and please get well soon.

I completely understand your feelings on this issue as well. I myself have not watched the video, realizing I can't take it. Seeing these children, and they are, surrounded by these grown men, suffering the indignity of being intimidated, then persecuted, having to endure racial and ethnic HATRED, by the "black Hebrews" and the American Indians, it's a bit too much for me as well. Then to see the vitriol from grownups in our sick culture, the same people who can't celebrate sin enough, pile on, including, to their utter shame, their own bishops and principle of their school. It is disheartening indeed.
And this young man is thankfully able to express himself as articulately as could be imagined. What about the next time, since the left is slavering to find someone white to accuse, when the child is not so articulate? What happens then, public lynching? Will that satisfy the bloodlust of these demons??
I'm sorry Dorota. I'm sorry for us all. These are hard, hard times to be a faithful Catholic. These are hard times to be an American. People may not know that professional whiner, Nathan Philipps, tried to disrupt a Holy Mass a day or so after this fiasco. His mob of about 50 went to the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception, and tried to disrupt a Mass. Thankfully there was security and the doors were bolted shut so they could not. Imagine if anyone went to a Pow-wow of the native Americans and tried to disrupt a prayer service. Oh boy, hell would break loose, but the mainstream media on this...crickets. The Communists notice what they want to notice. Never was their hatred for white people or Christianity more obvious than with this horrible stunt.
God help us.
