Social media erupted Saturday after selectively edited videos of Covington Catholic students were posted on Twitter accusing the boys of harassing and mocking an elderly Native American man.
The left, along with their mouthpieces in the media immediately called for these teens to be tarred and feathered — no judge, no jury.
Here are the cold hard facts about what really happened at the Lincoln Memorial this weekend:
According to one of the high school boys who was present, a group of black men were taunting the Trump supporters, calling them “shooters” and “crackers” and said the white kids “had everything given to them by their parents.”
At first, the Trump supporting teens ignored the black men who were harassing them, but after the blacks continued to taunt the white kids, the white kids began to chant back at them.
According to a witness, it was at this point that a Native American man showed up “out of no where” and began drumming in the high school kid’s face.
“We weren’t even chanting at him, we were chanting at the African American guy, but obviously social media made us look bad to get views and stuff,” a witness said.
TGP’s Kristinn Taylor reported that the students begged local news stations to report the truth.
A video posted to Facebook shows the beginning of the incident. The students are off by themselves doing school cheers when Phillips and his fellow Native American activists walk over to them, beating drums and chanting, and enter the students’ space.
Another clip shows a Native American man telling one of the students, “white people go back to Europe. This is not your land.”
These Covington Catholic students showed incredible restraint after being ambushed and taunted. No crimes were committed and no one became violent yet the media is piling on the children and calling for them to be severely punished over lies!
Despite the liberal media narrative completely collapsing far left pundits are comparing the boys to Nazi storm troopers, rapists and race-based lynchings.
Clara Jeffery is Editor-in-Chief of Mother Jones.
James Fallows is the author of “Our Towns” his strange journey through middle America.
Dana Gould is a comedian and writer.
Reagan Gomez is actor-writer-director of the Gotham awards.
This is the modern day left.

The 15-year-old kids from Covington Catholic who made the mistake of smirking at the wrong time have been compared to Nazi Storm Troopers, rapists, and race-based lynchings. I hope the parents of these kids sue every single one of these media pundits to oblivion… pic.twitter.com/LcwDt0vgdp
