Indigenous People’s March MAGA Kids Harass Elder Vietnam Vet … In Washington D.C.

A mob of MAGA hat-wearing youngsters swarmed round a Native American Vietnam veteran to harass and drown out his peaceable demonstration — and the scene was tense.
The face-off went down Friday on the D.C. National Mall — close to Arlington National Cemetery — the place Omaha elder Nathan Phillips, who served within the Vietnam War, was drumming and singing towards the tail finish of the Indigenous People’s March.
According to native reviews, a big group of males — together with many younger boys who had been sporting MAGA gear — descended upon Phillips and started mocking him … with one pupil getting proper up in his face as he peacefully tried reciting his track.
What’s depicted right here is sickening … lots of the boys are mimicking Phillips’ singing in a demeaning method as they encompass him and some lingering marchers. As you may see, one of many boys stands face-to-face with Phillips with a smug grin on his face as he continues to drum.
Fortunately, there aren’t any reviews of violence breaking out … but it surely seems like these children had been on the verge of one thing nefarious. Some of the boys have been reported as Covington Catholic High School college students in Park Hills, KY. It’s unclear why they had been in D.C.
Students from Covington Catholic High School in Kentucky sporting #MAGA hats mocked an elder on the #IndigenousPeoplesMarch on the nationwide mall. The Superintendent of Schools Diocese of Covington @supmikeclines was in DC with them.

Covington’s web site briefly crashed Saturday as tons of individuals demanded solutions from Principal Bob Rowe and different college. A communications rep for the Roman Catholic Diocese of Covington launched an announcement on the matter saying, “We are just now learning about this incident and regret it took place. We are looking into it.”
Ironically, CCHS’ mission assertion reads … “At Covington Catholic, our primary purpose is to embrace the gospel message of Jesus Christ in order to educate young men spiritually, academically, physically, and socially. With this focus, we are Building Minds and Living Faith.”
We’ve reached out to Covington Catholic High School for remark … it seems their cellphone line is busy, as calls should not going by.
