'Doesn't Matter How People Spin It': Native American Says MAGA Teens Were Harassing Tribal Elder...

....With War Whoops

“What we perceived was a very tense situation,” he added. “Our elder, Nathan Phillips did what he thought he could offer, and stand in a peaceful and prayerful way, and try to diffuse that situation.” He urged Americans to ignore the spin and watch the entire video.

“All you have to do is watch the video, and you’ll see them doing what’s known as the tomahawk chop,” he said. “We’re in a city that has a textbook racial slur as their football team.”

“We have a racially charged environment with a president who is giving license to this behavior,” Iron Eyes continued. “These kids show up being very loud, very disruptive, and doing the tomahawk chop, it is on video, making the fake war whoop we all know how to make.”

“It doesn’t matter how people spin it,” he said. “Our elder felt threatened there.”

2. Their past is much worse than that

One of their 1995 grads and basketball stars raped a girl until she almost bled to death. There was some sort of lawsuit of a sexual nature for 120 million involving the Archdiocese there.

11. An 18-yr-old former Covington Catholic basketball player raped TWO women last year:

https://www.wcpo.com/news/local-news/boone-county/burlington/former-covington-catholic-basketball-player-charged-with-rape-sodomy

<<BURLINGTON, Ky. — Former Covington Catholic basketball player Jacob Walter pinned a woman down Sunday and raped her until she bled, according to a news release from the Boone County Sheriff's Department....

According to the sheriff's department, Walter repeatedly assaulted and choked the 18-year-old victim, ignoring her pleas to stop. The news release also stated the victim was afraid to have sex with Walter because of his size: He stands 7 feet tall and weighs 300 pounds.

"Walter dismissed the victim by laughing at her and telling her that she would be fine," Sgt. Philip Ridgell wrote in the release.>>

This was just a few months after he committed another rape as a minor:

<<BURLINGTON, Ky. — The 18-year-old accused of violently raping a woman Sunday was previously registered as juvenile sex offender for another rape authorities said he committed just weeks before his 18th birthday....

The allegations are similar to those made against Walter after another incident back in May. That victim told investigators that Walter ignored her telling him to stop sexual intercourse. She later recorded a phone call in which he admitted to doing it despite her requests to stop, according to court records....

The victims in both incidents were taken to hospitals. A medical examination of the victim in the new case revealed bruises and multiple lacerations."...>>

3. Thank you

I did see the whole video and it didn't change my initial impression of what happened. The BI group behaving like racist asshats to the kids and NA's doesn't excuse the kids behaving like racist asshats towards Mr. Phillips and the other NA's. They may be teenagers but they are still old enough to know better.

10. The Covington boys were in D.C. for the sole purpose of male control of female bodies

The Covington boys were in D.C. for the sole purpose of male control of female bodies.
Teenagers bused in to demand adult women be subjected to forced child-bearing.
They weren't on a field trip to the Smithsonian.

4. As someone once said, "Don't piss on my head and tell me it's raining."

That was malice in that boy's stance, he was animated by animosity.

7. These douche bags are a textbook example why there should be mandatory draft in this country.

Be it military or public service, a little humility and appreciation for others would go a long way towards healing the divide IMO.
That, and I'd love to see their reaction to their first drill instructor.
