Viral Video Of Boys Confronting A Native American Doesn’t Tell The Whole Story

Liberals are quick to judge a situation, walking into something they know nothing about thinking they have all it all figured out; especially when it involves Trump supporters.

In a recent confrontation gone viral between a Native American man and a group of Catholic School boys, the media jumped on the story as a chance to attack conservatives.

However, the left-wing media had it all wrong, as they usually do, skewing the story to fit a narrative that plays into their agenda, but we have some factual insight.

The Catholic school boys who were in the viral video confronting a Native American in Washington, DC was one sided, and new information shows they may have not initiated the confrontation.

Teens from an all-boys Catholic school were seen in a video clip posted to social media making noise and laughing while a Native American, Nathan Phillips, chanted traditional songs from his tribe and banged on an animal skin drum.

Standing on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, DC, the young men were in town from Kentucky to participate in the annual March for Life rally, which shows national support for the pro-life movement.

Phillips was in Washington to walk in the first Indigenous Peoples March, which happened to be planned at the same time as the March for Life.

A short clip of the lengthy original video is what went viral in an effort to point the finger at the young men as the antagonists.

It is pointed out by liberal fanatics that some of the boys were wearing “MAGA” hats, which they were trying to infer meant that they were racist Trump supporters.

In the clip Covington Catholic student Nick Sandmann, also wearing the red “MAGA” hat, is standing face to face with Nathan Phillips banging the drum. Sandmann is smiling in most of the video, which is portrayed by naysayers to be a “smirk”, as reported by The Blaze.

There were people on social media sticking up for the kids, releasing the whole video that showed the young men were not in the wrong, but just making the most of the difficult situation they were confronted with.

One Twitter user had a texting conversation about the incident, which he posted.

Another Twitter user, Jim Hanson, suggests the kid who had a grown man banging a drum in his face should get a “peace prize” for not reacting violently.

The story actually begins prior to the viral clip, when a group of men who call themselves “black Hebrew Israelites” are seen yelling derogatory comments at the group of young men, as seen in a video released by the New York Times.

The Catholic school boys were off to the side, and weren’t paying the other groups any mind until they were confronted.

According to an interview with Sandmann by the Detroit Free Press he said the Black Hebrew Israelites were saying “hateful things”, calling the students racists, bigots, and “Trump incest babies”.

These are grown men shouting to kids who they have never met, and know nothing about them other than they are seemingly Trump supporters by their hats.

To counter the vulgar language that was being hollered to them, Sandmann asked the teacher chaperone if he could begin singing school spirit chants “to counter the hateful things that were being shouted at our group,”, reported the Courier Journal.

While the kids are doing their school spirit chants is when Phillips is seen entering the video singing and banging his drum. Phillips walks right up to Sandmann drumming in his face.

The Courier Journal reports on why Sandman stands there smiling while being provoked by the elder man:

“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…. 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.” 

Phillips claims that he approached the Catholic School boys to “diffuse the crowd” after witnessing the confrontation with the Black Hebrew Israelites.

However, that is simply not true, because in the longer video footage you can see the group of Native Americans getting into the boy’s faces after the drumming stops.

The Native Americans tell the Catholic School boys that the land, inferring America, is their land, and that they should go back to Europe.

This type of racism is what perpetuates prejudice among people groups. Each individual born in this nation to a citizen is an American. Where your ancestors have come from does not define a person. The character shown here and now is the person you are.

How a small portion of the bigger picture was singled out to demean and degrade a group of kids is a prime example of what is wrong with liberal media.

It’s important to get the whole story before casting unvalidated judgements on a group of people.

Hopefully, now the left can stop perpetuating their lies, and efforts to discredit conservatives; but it’s unlikely.

Please let us know in the comments section what you think of the boys brave and sensible reaction to the confrontational adults.
