This story is getting even more outrageous and infuriating, and now, the attorney for the Covington students is threatening lawsuits against the media unless they retract their false stories.
And, Washington Times is now questioning whether Phillips is, in fact, a ‘Vietnam vet,’ which added to the false drama of “white Catholic boys taunting an elderly Native American Vietnam veteran.” Not that the anti-Trump mob, or, as they prefer to call themselves, “journalists,” would have bothered checking his background. Or bothered to check the video, where they would have seen that Phillips is the one who instigated the incident.
And now this, via Daily Wire:
The Native American man at the center of the controversy involving a group of Trump-supporting high school boys from Covington Catholic High School in Kentucky has a history of claiming disrespect and racism by students.
Nathan Phillips of Ypsilanti claimed in April 2015 that a group of students at Eastern Michigan University (EMU) were “racist” toward him after he approached them while they were participating in an American Indian theme party….
Phillips says that he called the police and that by the time they showed up “it was like there was no party there at all.”
Fox 2 Detroit asked Phillips why he decided to approach the students and why he didn’t walk away….
