The mainstream media was caught demonizing Trump-supporting Catholic students by falsely claiming they were harassing a Native American activist when video evidence shows the opposite. The incident began Friday when video surfaced showing students from Covington Catholic school standing in front of the activist while he beat a drum outside the Lincoln Memorial.
Below is a sample of the fraudulent stories cooked up by the mainstream media, who have not yet issued retractions.
The demonization became so intense that one student released a statement to WKRC News setting the record straight, saying it was the activist who was looking for trouble.

He describes the activist, Nathan Phillips, and his group approaching the students while beating his drum before forcing his way into the center of their group, where he began to become hostile.
“They forced their way into the center of our group,” the student wrote. “We initially thought this was a cultural display since he was beating along to our cheers and so we clapped to the beat. He came to stand in front of one of my classmates who stood where he was, smiling and enjoying the experience. However, after multiple minutes of Mr. Phillips beating the drum directly in the face of my friend (mere centimeters from his nose), we became confused and started wondering what was happening. It was not until later that we discovered they would incriminate us a publicity stunt.”
The statement included video links corroborating his story.

It’s WAY worse than this. Start at 1hr10min mark and end when kids get on bus. https://t.co/xkHrsypOiv

The mainstream media is determined to demonize Trump supporters to start a culture clash any way they can in a divide-and-conquer tactic meant to distract and anger the public.
(Breitbart) Twitter has spent years assuring the public that it will crack down on trolling, harassment, and violent threats. It’s also pledged to tackle “misinformation” and “unhealthy conversation,” using these loaded terms as excuses to ban a wide range of anti-progressive dissidents from the platform.
But when innocent conservative high school kids are flooded with violent threats, targeted harassment and doxing on the basis of media-promoted misinformation, Jack Dorsey and his staff seem to do nothing — it even briefly promoted the smears.
The wave of attacks was sparked by fake news — a claim, based on a clipped video and repeated by the mainstream media, that the high school students “taunted” and “harassed” a Native-American activist near the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C. Longer versions of the same video showed that it was the activist, and a nearby group of black supremacist activists, who harassed the students. The latter group even hurled racial abuse at the students.
Most of the tweets remain on the platform, which has yet to ask the authors to take them down — much less deverify or ban them, something Twitter has done to conservative activists for far less.
