Mr. Nathan Philips ia a liar.

This is a lie - "Phillips, on the other hand, told CNN this week he felt hatred coming from the young people in the crowd. When asked about Nick standing in front of him, Phillips told CNN he was trying to retreat and the only way he could do so was to go forward. 

"When I started going forward and that mass of groups of people started separating and moving aside to allow me to move out of the way or to proceed, this young fellow put himself in front of me and wouldn't move," Phillips said.

The only way to retreat was to go forward? Does he know what the word "retreat" means?  He wan't retreating.  He was charging. He charged into kids he had no business going anywhere near.   

Sandmann did not put himself in front of anyone.  Philips put himself in front of Nicholas Sandmann. 

Why didn't Philips feel any hatred coming from the "Hebrew Israelites" who were taunting, mocking and cursing at the Indigenous People as can be easily seen and heard on the video these "Hebrew Israelites" made of their own actions?  They mocked, taunted, and cursed at them for most of this second video and then they do the same to the kids in the MAGA hats.  

Yet, Philips would still have the world believe that everything was lovely until the Covington kids suddenly and for no reason misbehave.  And that simply isn't true.  


Kentucky Catholic diocese apologizes for condemning students in viral video with Native American elder

CNN. A Catholic diocese in Kentucky said Friday it was "bullied and pressured" into a making a premature statement about a viral video showing a confrontation between a Native American elder and a Catholic school student, according to a letter the diocese's bishop wrote to parents.
The Rev. Roger J. Foys said in the letter that the leadership of the Diocese of Covington was "being pressured from all sides to make a statement" about the video clip. 

"We are sorry that this situation has caused such disruption in the lives of so many," Foys wrote. "We apologize to anyone who has been offended in any way of our statements which were made with good will based on the information we had. We should not have allowed ourselves to be bullied and pressured into making a statement prematurely, and we take full responsibility for it."

Foys wrote he especially wanted to apologize to Covington Catholic High School student Nick Sandmann -- the teen featured prominently in the video -- his family and all the Covington families affected by the video. 

"Nicholas has unfortunately become the face of these allegations based on video clips. This is not fair It is not just," Foys wrote.

The original January 19 statement said the diocese condemned the actions of the Covington students for the January 18 incident with Omaha Nation elder Nathan Phillips in Washington. The church also issued an apology to Phillips. 

After more videos surfaced showing other vantage points, "the very same people who had put tremendous pressure on us to condemn the actions of the students now wanted a retraction from anyone who had previously issued a statement critical of them," Foys' Friday letter says. "All of this based again on a video." 

Foys also wrote that Covington students and their families received death threats. The school was closed Tuesday, but reopened Wednesday morning, according to a letter from the high school to parents obtained by CNN affiliate WCPO. 

The diocese is now awaiting the results of the investigation into the incident. 

"It is my hope and expectation that the results will exonerate our students so that they can move forward with their lives," Foys wrote.

One video, two stories

The video of the confrontation surfaced January 18. It showed students from the all-boys Covington Catholic High School wearing "Make America Great Again" hats surrounding Phillips as he stood face to face with Nick, playing a drum and chanting.

The students were in Washington for the school's annual trip to the March for Life rally.

A second video surfaced Sunday showing another group, who identify themselves as members of the Hebrew Israelites, taunting students with disparaging and vulgar language, before the encounter with the Native American.

Covington Catholic parents told CNN affiliate WKRC the students did not incite violence and were calm as taunts were hurled at them. One parent said he tried to intervene to defuse the situation.

Speaking out for the first time, on the "Today" show Wednesday, Nick said he doesn't owe anyone an apology, but he respects Phillips and would be willing to engage in dialogue with him. Nick also said neither he nor any of his classmates are racist and they've been mischaracterized based on videos of the scene that unfolded in front of the Lincoln Memorial last week.

Phillips, on the other hand, told CNN this week he felt hatred coming from the young people in the crowd. When asked about Nick standing in front of him, Phillips told CNN he was trying to retreat and the only way he could do so was to go forward. 

"When I started going forward and that mass of groups of people started separating and moving aside to allow me to move out of the way or to proceed, this young fellow put himself in front of me and wouldn't move," Phillips said. 

Phillips is offering to travel to Covington Catholic High School to talk about the importance of respecting diverse cultures, according to a statement from the Lakota People's Law Project.

CNN is reporting that Nathan Philips, get this, DID NOT SERVE IN VIETNAM


Nathan Philips, the elderly Native American Indian said he served in Vietnam.   Apparently, that isn't true.

Philips served in the Marine Corps from 1972 to 1976, but was never deployed to Vietnam.

Talia is a fake

This is the Twitter account that spread false information. This twitter account was the one that spread the one video that made people hate the High School student, Nate Sandmann.

Twitter account that started the controversy suspended

It seems a fake Twitter account started the whole thing. From CNN's website:

Twitter suspended an account on Monday afternoon that helped spread a controversial encounter between a Native American elder and a group of high school students wearing Make America Great Again hats. 
The account claimed to belong to a California schoolteacher. Its profile photo was not of a schoolteacher, but of a blogger based in Brazil, CNN Business found. Twitter suspended the account soon after CNN Business asked about it.
The account, with the username @2020fight, was set up in December 2016 and appeared to be the tweets of a woman named Talia living in California. "Teacher & Advocate. Fighting for 2020," its Twitter bio read. Since the beginning of this year, the account had tweeted on average 130 times a day and had more than 40,000 followers.
Late on Friday, the account posted a minute-long video showing the now-iconic confrontation between a Native American elder and the high school students, with the caption, "This MAGA loser gleefully bothering a Native American protester at the Indigenous Peoples March."
    That version of the video was viewed at least 2.5 million times and was retweeted at least 14,400 times, according to a cached version of the tweet seen by CNN Business. 
    The video shared by @2020fight did not show what preceded the confrontation between the Native American elder and the high school students.
    The video had been posted earlier on Instagram by someone who was at the event, but it was @2020fight's caption that helped frame the news cycle. 
    Rob McDonagh, an assistant editor at Storyful, a service that vets content online, was monitoring Twitter activity on Saturday morning and said the @2020fight video was the main version of the incident being shared on social media.
    In one indicator of the @2020fight's video's virality, multiple newsrooms, including some national American outlets, reached out to the user asking them directly about the video. 
    McDonagh said he found the account suspicious due to its "high follower count, highly polarized and yet inconsistent political messaging, the unusually high rate of tweets, and the use of someone else's image in the profile photo."
    Molly McKew, an information warfare researcher who saw the tweet and shared it herself on Saturday, said she later realized that a network of anonymous accounts were working to amplify the video. 
    Speaking about the nature of fake accounts on social media, McKew told CNN Business, "This is the new landscape: where bad actors monitor us and appropriate content that fits their needs. They know how to get it where they need to go so it amplifies naturally. And at this point, we are all conditioned to react and engage or deny in specific ways. And we all did."
    Twitter's rules forbid users from creating "fake and misleading accounts," and shortly after CNN Business asked Twitter about the account, it was suspended.
      A spokesperson for Twitter told CNN Business, "Deliberate attempts to manipulate the public conversation on Twitter by using misleading account information is a violation of the Twitter Rules."
      CNN Business was unable to reach the person, or people, behind the account, to ask if they were indeed a California schoolteacher that chose to use someone else's picture. Soon after we pointed out on Twitter that the account was using a different woman's profile picture, the account blocked this reporter.
