Catholic student who was part of the MAGA-hat wearing crowd claims vet bullied THEM

A student part of the MAGA-hat wearing ground who allegedly taunted a Native American veteran at a rally claims he made his way into their ‘cheer circle’ as a publicity stunt.

Nathan Phillips, 64, was singing the American Indian Movement song of unity near Friday’s March for Life when he was surrounded by the teens who he claimed were chanting ‘build that wall, build that wall’. 

Philips said he felt threatened by the teens and that they suddenly swarmed around him as he and other activists were wrapping up the march and preparing to leave the Lincoln Memorial.

Kentucky students wearing MAGA hats appeared to mock a Native American man and wouldn't let him move forward at a rally on Saturday in Washington D.C.

But a student from Covington Catholic School in Kentucky claims it was Philips who approached them and ‘has a history of claiming racial harassment.’

In a letter posted on Twitter by a priest named Fr. Jim Sichko, the unnamed student said that his friend who came face to face with Philips as Philips stood singing and beating his drum, now faces expulsion for ‘a crime he didn’t commit.’ 

He claimed his school attends the March for Life rally in D.C. every year and they had been asked to meet at the Lincoln Memorial at 5.30pm.

As an all-male school he said the group like to get ‘hyped up’, adding that their cheer name section is Colonel Crazies. 

He added: ‘In the midst of our cheers, we were approached by a group of adults led by Nathan Philips, with Philips beating his drum.

‘They forced their way into the center of our group. 

‘He came to stand in front of my classmates who stood where he was , smiling and enjoying the experience.

‘However after mutiple minutes of Mr Philips beating his drum directly in the face of my friend, we became confused and wondered what was happening.

‘It was not until later that we discovered the would incriminate us as a publicity stunt.’

The student claimed the group did not partake in any physical or verbal abuse and did not chant ‘build the wall’ or mock anyone, and did not seek to incite violence.

He claimed that after their encounter with Nathan Philips, they were then verbally assaulted by four or five African men who called them ‘f*****s’ and berated one of their black friends for being their friend.

‘The truth needs to come out. A great injustice has been done and it is our duty to see that the truth prevails.

‘Additionally, Mr. Philips has a history of claiming racial harassment. I am by no means disparaging his credibility, but this should be taken note of.’

The student also posted links to footage showing Nathan Philips walk towards them as the large group of boys stand cheering at the Lincoln memorial.

He also posted a link to footage of four or five African-American men shouting at the students, shouting obscenities which were bleeped out. 

In response one of the students shouts back ‘Woah, that’s racist.’  One of the men shouts at the student: ‘When you get old enough they’re gonna steal your organs.’

He then seemingly shouts at the African – American student from Covington County: ‘Get out n****r, get out, have you seen the movie?’

A student can be heard shouting back: ‘Why are you being mean?’ 

The man shouting racist slurs was referring to Get Out, a racially-charged horror movie which tells the story of a young black man who meets the family of his white girlfriend.

The student claimed the links he posted prove that Philips approached them first and they were not aggressive towards him.

Philips said he felt threatened by the teens and that they suddenly swarmed around him as he and other activists were wrapping up the march and preparing to leave the Lincoln Memorial.

Philips said he saw only angry faces around him and knew that he was in a dangerous situation.

He told CNN: ‘All of a sudden all of that anger and wanting to have the freedom to rip me apart. That was scary. 

‘This young fella put himself in front of me and wouldn’t move. If I took another step I would be putting myself into his space.’ 

Covington Catholic High and the Diocese of Covington released a statement Saturday condemning the student’s action.

It said: ‘We condemn the actions of the Covington Catholic High School students towards Nathan Phillips specifically, and Native Americans in general, Jan. 18, after the March for Life, in Washington, D.C.,].

‘We extend our deepest apologies to Mr. Phillips. This behavior is opposed to the Church’s teachings on the dignity and respect of the human person.

‘The matter is being investigated and we will take appropriate action, up to and including expulsion.’
