Liberal, far left activists were staged at this event with foreknowledge and advanced planning
The Native American activist who appeared to be mocked by Kentucky high school students Friday, during a Washington, D.C. march, reportedly said that they had a “mob mentality” and were harassing black protesters. Omaha elder Nathan Phillips told Detroit Free Press that this incident at the Indigenous Peoples March, which now-viral video seems to show Covington Catholic High School students taunting him and other participants, “was scary.” According to Phillips, these students, who had attended the anti-abortion March for Life that same day, became upset while watching the Black Hebrew Israelites make speeches. More and more Covington students arrived and were then “in the process of attacking these four black individuals.” Phillips claimed some Black Hebrew members did grow heated and that one spit toward the students, prompting him to step between them, but said the blame fell on these students. “I'm a Marine Corps veteran and I know what that mob mentality can be like...the looks in these young men's faces...”
Then, as tension appeared to escalate, Nathan Phillips and other Indigenous people stepped in between the two groups in what Phillips says was an attempt to deescalate the conflict. As Phillips beat his drum and sang “Raymond Yellow Thunder Song,” which is about “resistance and remembrance,” the students chanted around him and one smugly smiled directly in Phillips’ face.
“But this is the commitment when I picked up the pipe 27 years ago. It’s for the next generation. It’s when that moment comes and you got to stand your ground. That commitment that you made to either fulfill that or you don’t. I mean, I was scared and I didn’t want to. I really, I really didn’t want to, but nobody else was,” Phillips said, adding, “We’re indigenous. We’re different than that. When we see our youth going the wrong way, we will go up and say, ‘You are doing the wrong thing there nephew, or grandson. This is just the wrong way.’ I tell them, ‘This is the way you have to behave. This wrong, this is right.'”
Someone needs to teach that old gentleman that a bunch of kids chanting are not a threat.
Meanwhile the media makes these kids out to be racist, when the only racism I heard was from the native american and black activists.

They are see though because #ExposeChristianSchools. I've been wondering if part of the outrage here is linked to the Karen Pence Christian school thing.
These are kids who attend a *gasp* private Christian school.
