If you have paid attention to the media you probably know this kid:



The problem is the media doesn't even know what happened and they are doubling down on a fake click bait story of this poor native war veteran being harassed by these evil hateful kids.

A great video of what really happened with ACTUAL FOOTAGE and PROOF is here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EZTDIoywwGk

The problem is its just a bunch of people who did no research quoting people who did no research coming up with this grand story that never happened.

What Actually Happened:
> Kids went to a pro-life march
> Were told to wait at the Lincoln memorial and wait for their bus to arrive
> Black Israelites come by and start chanting their nonsense along with insulting homosexuals and calling people faggots
> Kids say woah woah woah thats not cool
> Eventually native guy who the Black Israelites call their elder comes banging his drum
> Kids think its cool and start dancing and doing their thing with the native
> Native walking through the crowd of kids
> Native stops and stands banging his drum infront of a kid for 5 minutes
> Kid finds it cool at first then a little strange
> Eventually native guy leaves
> Two groups go their seperate ways
> Done



Now the media has framed this as a variety of things like the kids barged in and interupted this man or they were coming in yelling hateful things. Actually the Native's buddies were calling people faggots and insulting them. As a result you have the leftist mob now trying to hunt down these kids and ruin their lives as a result of the fake news media and the left not double checking ANYTHING!



This is sick. I see people on CR also blaming the kids and its disgusting. You are ruining people's lives and not only that but they were the victims in this situation but because they wear MAGA hats you immediately view them as (((The Enemy))).

Nasty nasty behavior and remember the media lies all the time. Do not trust it. Check out the live videos.

Ugh, I'd been trying to stay out of the discussion about this on account of it being a stupid thing to fuss over, but this media buzz about it is really getting out of hand.

Ruji's surprisingly close to the mark for once, even though he's still as biased as ever. The Black Isrealites were indeed the primary instigators. The catholic boy and co. didn't seem to be acting much better, but wern't the assholes the media has been making them out to be. The Native American drummer seemed to have gotten between them in an attempt to break up the argument.

The left wing seems intent on demonizing the kid, while the right-wing seems to be intent on demonizing the drummer guy; which is probably the only reason it's generating as much attention as it has. Most don't even seem to realize the Black Israelites were even there.

im glad to see so many well-thoughout responses from the left here. they are not showing strong bias and straight insulting people with a different political views, but instead they make a carefully crafted and balanced response to try and reach a consensus on what actually happened, distilling truth from the half-truths.

Yeah I seen the original video and I was like "wtf is this it, meh" then ignored it till it blew up like crazy.

Really I think most of the backlash against the Native is BECAUSE of the left saying the native is a hero when instead he was an agitator. You don't bang a drum in someones face for minutes at a time staring them down without trying to start something. It's obvious he was trying to get attention and he got it, bet there will be a go fund me for him soon...

Yeah from what I seen initially no one mentioned the Black Israelites. They didn't even know the situation they were framing it as a bunch of Maga kids harassing a native.

i think this thread should be locked until folks on both ends of the political spectrum start acting mature.

Saw the video, followed your chain of "facts of what actually happened" and even with all that, your first statement (i.e. Title of the thread) is a complete fake. You need to solve your problems with reality, man.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/nation/2019/01/20/it-was-getting-ugly-native-american-drummer-speaks-maga-hat-wearing-teens-who-surrounded-him/?utm_term=.4f2193538100


Surrounding him are a throng of young, mostly white teenage boys, several wearing “Make America Great Again” caps. One stood about a foot from the drummer’s face wearing a relentless smirk.

Nathan Phillips, a veteran in the indigenous rights movement, was that man in the middle.

In an interview Saturday, Phillips, 64, said he felt threatened by the teens and that they swarmed around him as he and other activists were wrapping up the march and preparing to leave.


Native was intimidating the smirking boy not the other way around then saying he felt threatened.

Yep, your statement is false.. Even if the media would be biased, (probably is, most surely not at the point you suggest) , based on the video (and only in the footage, because the analysis of the YouTube its terribly poor and misleading, so counts for little to nothing) it wasn't the native who's leading a difamatory campaign against the little brat. That's altering the narrative, which is the fancy name to say you're making. Fake News. Again. Check your reality.

Don't get the wrong idea. You're also trying to change the narrative to fit your own biases. Most notably in the paragraph I quoted. Drow gives a good explanation of how you're incorrect in the post above this one.

Everyone will twist, misconstrue, manipulate, interpret facts to suit their narrative. No exceptions.

From what I saw of the video it looked like everyone was trying to provoke each other to violence to play the victim.

I agree. To an extent everything was off. The black Israelites were doing their usual bs... I can't stand them.

The MAGA kids... Weren't doing anything wrong per say but they looked smug as hell, maybe in an incredulous manner because of the guy approaching them? Or maybe they were being arses, who knows. But they DO know why they got approached, they shouldn't have been approached, but they did get approached because of the hats. And the drummer is in the wrong for walking up to them... He was trying to elicit a reaction 100%.

Passive and active provocation from all sides. Idk. All parties have some stake, to some degree. The media did blow it out of proportion of course.
