The Native American man who falsely claimed “harassment” by a group of peaceful pro-Trump Catholic students has been exposed as a Democrat activist with a history of race-related public relations stunts.
Several video feeds surfaced over the weekend showing far-left activist Nathan Phillips banging a drum in front of a group of students outside the Lincoln Memorial for the pro-life march, which the mainstream media then egregiously claimed was an act of racism by the Catholic students in attendance.
Infowars.com reports: The media demonization campaign resulted in the Covington Catholic school students receiving death threats, prompting several students and their parents to release lengthy statements setting the record straight.
As liberal figures and publications backtrack their accusations in light of additional video showing the full picture, more information is coming to light about Phillips and his history of “drumming up” racial division.
In 2015, Phillips accused a group of Eastern Michigan University students of racism after confronting them for wearing Native American garb for a theme party.
“For me just to walk by and have a blind eye to it,” he told local media. “Something just didn’t allow me to do it.”
“They had their face painted,” he added. “I said what the heck is going on here. ‘Oh we are honoring you.’ I said no you are not honoring me.”
Additionally, the media is reporting that Phillips served as a Vietnam veteran, but the validity of those reports remain in question given Phillip’s claim that he was a “Recon Ranger” is a nonexistent operational force.
Phillips also made his politics known in 2012 when he appeared in a Skrillex music video called “Make It Bun Dem,” which demonizes law enforcement.
In further evidence that Phillips supports the left’s agenda, he also protested the Dakota Access Pipeline at the Standing Rock reservation in 2018.
