All Fun and Games, Right?
We will start off by saying the full footage of the Patriot versus the Chief can be found here. Now that everything has settled down, and we can pick through all the roughage, we can see that Covington Catholic High students were being bullied by grown men. Yes, you read that right. They were being bullied by very large fully grown men.
The fact that these fully grown men felt it appropriate to commit a hate crime against kids for any reason is one that stuns civilized people. They call themselves the Black Hebrew Israelites (BHI). Yet they do no justice to their name when they stand in derision, spewing hate and vitriol in what was an obvious attempt to get the kids to lash out.
Meet Black Hebrew Israelites
Oddly enough, the Christian Apologetics and Research Ministry (CARM) says the vast majority of BHI are peaceful people who oppose racism. Some practice the Talmud, while others do not. It is difficult to discern where the bulk of their beliefs come from, but most of them do not subscribe to the shameful behavior witnessed at the Lincoln Memorial.
What is equally apparent, just through CARM’s research, is that BHI does not engage in child abuse. It is safe, then, to say that the behavior witnessed in D.C. is an aberration that does not represent the bulk of what BHI stands for. You can learn more about them by visiting the original African Hebrew Israelite website.
This hateful and shameful rhetoric continued for the better part of an hour. At which point a First Nation American man approached, beating his drum. No one knows exactly what the man wished to accomplish, and he is a consummate liar who cannot be trusted. So the best guess is that he joined in solidarity with the BHI members who were shouting filthy and racist comments to young boys.
Meet Nathan Phillips
Nathan Phillips is known by some as a Tribal Elder. He is known by others as a Vietnam Veteran (heard straight out of the horse’s mouth), and by still others as a liar and race baiting grifter. By all accounts presently known, he was not approached and surrounded by a mob of racist teens intent on intimidation. He chose to freely and willfully march himself (and his drum) straight into the middle of them, where HIS companions also started flinging racist filth.
It seems everyone wants to be a soldier. As long as they do not have to enlist.
Additionally, Nathan Phillips has had previous encounters with ‘racist’ students. In 2015, he clashed with students from EMU, stating they told him they were honoring him and Indigenous Peoples by smearing red paint on their half naked bodies and pinning feathers in their hair. He proceeds to claim racism, causing an uproar with the students, who have since changed their schools team name and mascot to the Eagles as a result of Phillips interference.
In fact, if you Google Nathan Phillips, you will find he is all over the place tooting his own horn. Or beating his own drum, if you prefer. He travels around doing speeches in which he freely speaks of and touts his alleged Vietnam Vet status. He is caught on camera claiming to be a Vietnam Veteran, not a Vietnam ERA Veteran.
The Truth About Nathan Phillips
I am going to speak personally right now. On December 9, 2018, a hero who fought in Vietnam (whose grandmother was full blooded cherokee) passed away due to brain cancer from agent orange poisoning. What I am about to tell you concerning Nathan Phillips should be understood as being saturated with all the contempt the daughter of a REAL Indigenous Vietnam vet could muster. There is no honor in a First Nation man who would claim valor he did not earn.
Nathan Phillips was a refrigerator mechanic with the Marines from 1972 to 1976. Although he was listed as active duty, he never left Lincoln, Nebraska and El Toro, California between those dates. He was never deployed, but he was AWOL a shocking number of times. A rifleman for a mere two days, Nathan Phillips absolutely never saw combat.
My father saw combat. He saw combat with children who had bombs strapped to them. Women with razor blades in their vaginas tempting American Soldiers to have sex with them. Those are only two examples of what our soldiers faced in Vietnam. Upon coming home, my father really was called a baby killer and he really was spat on. They really were expected to allow a child to blow them to smithereens.
Stolen Valor, a Sickening Epidemic
It seems everyone wants to be a soldier. As long as they do not have to enlist. All the rage across the U.S., stolen valor has prompted laws condemning the practice and making it illegal. It has also inspired people like Don Shipley to battle back and to expose these frauds.
People under the impression that Nathan Phillips is being falsely accused of stolen valor can find videos of him stating he is a Vietnam Vet on the Twitter page of Phil Kerpen. Also on Kerpen’s Twitter page are videos evidencing the claims of Phillips to have received medals and honors from the Marines for his service. This is illegal in the extreme. The Stolen Valor Act of 2005, as described by Wikipedia, was meant to curtail stolen valor:
“The Stolen Valor Act of 2005, signed into law by President George W. Bush on December 20, 2006, was a U.S. law that broadened the provisions of previous U.S. law addressing the unauthorized wear, manufacture, or sale of any military decorations and medals. The law made it a federal misdemeanor to falsely represent oneself as having received any U.S. military decoration or medal. If convicted, defendants might have been imprisoned for up to six months, unless the decoration lied about is the Medal of Honor, in which case imprisonment could have been up to one year. In United States v. Alvarez the U.S. Supreme Court ruled on June 28, 2012, that the Stolen Valor Act was an unconstitutional abridgment of the freedom of speech under the First Amendment, striking down the law in a 6 to 3 decision.”
In A Nutshell
So Nathan Phillips is not who he claims to be, and certainly, he is no peacemaker. After the incident with the Covington Catholic students, Phillips and about 60 other drum beating indigenous protesters, screaming and banging their drums, tried to storm D.C.’s National Shrine. This incident is being looked at as a possible war on Catholics that is being orchestrated to foment unease about the Catholic church. The reason given by those who subscribe to this is that the next Supreme Court Justice nominee Trump will nominate is Catholic.
It seems to be the consensus amongst those in the twitterverse that another debacle much like the Kavanaugh hearings is in the offing. To garner public support for their refusal of her suit, it is said the DNC and George Soros are paying Nathan Phillips and his team to disrupt all things Catholic, in hopes something will happen they can then villainize the church for.
In the next installment of this series, we will look at the media’s role in, and possible motives for, their false coverage of the incident at the Lincoln Memorial. For now, this thought: It is highly egregious, indeed repulsive, for an adult to work to instill fear in a child. To bully children is child abuse and verbal assault. But who is most at fault for this? Nathan Phillips, the media, BHI, Covington High and MAGA hats are your choices. In any case, whether the child in question is Malia Obama, Barron Trump, David Hogg or some kid from Kentucky, leave children alone.
