Protecting Our Children From Radical Leftwing Activists

Protecting Our Children From Radial Leftwing ActivistsLike the Fake News that wholly created and sustains him,  Native American rights activist Nathan Phillips seems to have a low regard for facts and truth in what really happened to the students of Covington School on January 18.

Like so many of the made-to-order activists sent out by progressive-left ‘Rebels With A Trumped-up Cause’, Phillips seems to be looking for racism and bigotry in all the wrong places.


The Covington school students were not at the Lincoln Memorial to harass Native American rights activists or any other kind, they were there to celebrate life following the highly successful Right to Life March that this year drew hundreds of thousands of kids and young people to come out in defense of the vulnerable unborn.

Still smarting from the loss of abortion champion Hillary Clinton to Donald Trump, the far left couldn’t take it.

While chanting and playing the same ceremonial drums, they played in the face of Covington school student, Nick Sandmann and others, the same group of Native American rights activists reportedly led by Nathan Phillips attempted a run on Washington, D.C.’s Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception during a Saturday evening Mass one day after they accused the Covington kids of bigotry and racism.

Count on the activists and fake news media trying to pass it off as mere coincidence.

“The group of 20 demonstrators was stopped by shrine security as it tried to enter the church during its 5:15 pm Vigil Mass, according to a shrine security guard on duty during the Mass. (Catholic News Agency, CNA, Jan. 22, 2019).

“It was really upsetting,” the guard told CNA.

“There were about twenty people trying to get in, we had to lock the doors and everything.”

“The guard said the incident was a disappointment during a busy and joyful weekend for the shrine.

“We had hundreds and hundreds of people from all over the country come here to celebrate life, to celebrate each other together. That a protest tried to come inside during Mass was really the worst.

“The guard told CNA the situation was “tense.”

“I’m just really grateful that nothing too bad happened, they were really angry.

“The guard told CNA that he’d never witnessed anything like it during his whole time of employment at the basilica.

“A source close to the shrine’s leadership corroborated the security guard’s account, telling CNA that during the Mass, Phillips and the group tried to enter the church while playing drums and chanting, and were prohibited from entering the building by security personnel, who locked the main basilica doors with the congregation still inside.

“The shrine’s spokeswoman would not confirm or deny that the group attempted to enter the Mass. She told CNA that “a group did assemble on Saturday evening outside the shrine” and that they “left without incident.”

“Video footage showed one supporter saying that the group had gathered at the shrine to listen to Phillips, and to hold the Catholic Church “accountable” for the alleged actions of the Covington Catholic students and for the “colonial violence that the Catholic Church reproduces every day.”

Isn’t that racism and bigotry against a particular religion?

“The incident has become the subject of intense national debate, and Phillips has been accused by some of instigating an encounter with the students, and subsequently altering his initial account of events. (CNA)

“Covington Catholic High School was closed Jan. 22, following threats against students and staff in the wake of media coverage of Friday’s incident.”

The incident unleashed a flood of hatred from celebrity and media trolls against the students, some wishing death on them and their parents with reports of activists calling the employers of the students’ parents hoping to have them fired.

It goes without saying that some Native America Indians would object to adult activists bullying high school students.

Much will be made by the media that Nathan Phillips now faces questions about reports that he’s a veteran of the Vietnam War.

“According to multiple news accounts, the activist is 64 years old, which means he would have been 18 years old in 1973, the last year any U.S. combat units were stationed in Vietnam. (Washington Times, Jan. 22, 2019)


Mr. Phillips also claims to be a Marine veteran, although the last Marine combat units left Vietnam in 1971.

“A careful reading of Mr. Phillips‘ own descriptions does not make clear if he ever set foot in Vietnam. Instead, he has used much more careful language claiming he is a “Vietnam times veteran,” an ambiguous phrasing that led many media accounts to conclude he was a combat veteran.”

Not of much account when politicians (Senator Richard Blumenthal)  holding public office who have made the same claims never set foot in Vietnam,  and in an era where you can be anyone you want on the Internet, which also affords anonymity to those who would Tweet death threats.

Meanwhile the students at the March for Life learned more from from being at the legal gathering than they would have learned in class that day.

Lesson Number 1: You can’t get the support of the celebrities and media if you protest baby-killing abortion, but only their visceral hatred.  You have to be Democrat to be able to protest in peace.

The progressive-left have moved the goal posts in their dangerous game of hate.  After January 18, 2019, civil society will have to come up with a way to protect school kids from physical harm called for by the unhinged surrogates of the far left.

A fact not even Fake News can whitewash.
