Washington, DC: On Friday, a group of Catholic high school boys from Kentucky, who were wearing ‘Make America great Again’ hats, went to the Lincoln Memorial after attending the March For Life and then waited for their bus. News reports said the students harassed a Native American man named Nathan Phillips who was trying to perform a religious ceremony. Video shows, however, that Phillips and his friends approached the boys, entered their space, and harassed them. Phillips has a history of confrontation of this kind. Because of the fake news account, the students were threatened with expulsion by their school. Kentucky Secretary of State Allison Grimes condemned the boys and accused them of hatred. This is a classic example of the power of the media to engineer public opinion with fake news. -GEG
A student at Covington Catholic High School sent a letter Saturday to a local TV station that serves that part of Kentucky, Cincinnati-based WKRC-TV, begging the station to report the truth of an incident Friday in Washington, D.C., involving a Native American man and students from Covington Catholic.
The incident took place at the Lincoln Memorial as the students waited for buses to pick them up after participating in the annual March for Life that day. News reports claimed the students harassed a Native American man named Nathan Phillips–a Vietnam veteran–who was trying to perform a religious ceremony. The students and the school have been viciously attacked online with many threats being made to attack the school children.
As happens too often these days, the media got it wrong. Numerous videos show the students being approached by Phillips and a group of fellow Native American activists who were at the Lincoln Memorial for an Indigenous Peoples Rally that had ended earlier. Videos also show the students being harassed by a group of African-Americans who hurled racist and anti-gay insults at the students.
