Covington Catholic High School had to close on Tuesday, most likely due to the threats received by people upset with some of their students.
It doesn’t matter that there’s evidence showing the kids did no wrong.
What matters is…I don’t know. Insert whatever far-left talking point you want.
What’s wild, and going unreported, is that Nathan Phillips, the Native American man who confronted the teens, stormed a Catholic Church and disrupted mass AFTER the shenanigans at the Lincoln Memorial.
While chanting and playing ceremonial drums, a group of Native American rights activists reportedly led by Nathan Phillips attempted Jan. 19 to enter Washington, D.C.’s Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception during a Saturday evening Mass.
The group of 20 demonstrators was stopped by shrine security as it tried to enter the church during its 5:15 pm Vigil Mass, according to a shrine security guard on duty during the Mass.
“It was really upsetting,” the guard said.
He added, “There were about twenty people trying to get in, we had to lock the doors and everything.”
“We had hundreds and hundreds of people from all over the country come here to celebrate life, to celebrate each other together. That a protest tried to come inside during Mass was really the worst.“

Here’s a preview of an interview with one of the teens:
"Do you feel from this experience that you owe anybody an apology? Do you see your own fault in any way?”

Check out the clip of a chaperone who was at the event:
Here are the facts:
First, the kids were doing school cheers and not bothering anyone.
Second, the activist, Nathan Phillips, invaded their space in an attempt to antagonize.
Third, leftist activists jeered at and brutally mocked the kids.
Fourth, the mainstream media and unhinged celebrities erred bigly when siding against the Catholic kids.
President Trump weighed-in:

It turns out that this isn’t the first time Phillips has accused kids of racial harassment.
Back in 2015 he claimed that a group of college students, who were allegedly dressed as Indians for a party, uses verbal slurs as he walked by.
From Fox 2 Detroit:
He walked by a home where he saw Eastern Michigan University students dressed as Native Americans.
“They had little feathers on, I was just going to walk by,” Phillips said. “A group of them said ‘Come on over, come here.'”
He says he walked over to the fence and saw roughly 30 to 40 students involved in a theme party.

Nick Sandmann, the student who was facing Phillips in the video, has been inundated with death threats.
He and his family have released this statement:
Is Phillips a Vietnam vet, as he claims?
#NathanPhillips Claims to have been a "Recon Ranger" in Vietnam. https://t.co/6wmcPveB5i As a servicemember, let's break this down: There is no such thing as a "Recon Ranger". Closest is the 75th Ranger Regiment Reconnaissance Company, established 1984. Way after 'Nam. [1/11]

They were smeared and vilified by people whose own Trump hatred made them the mob they called the boys

Recon Ranger is not a real thing in the USMC. The only time I've heard the term is in lyrics for a cadence song. I assume he picked it up from there. His service records need to be looked into because what he says is suspect. https://t.co/ulp0L4SFMM

Far-left know-nothing Alyssa Milano shared her ignorant thoughts on the situation:
The red MAGA hat is the new white hood.
Without white boys being able to empathize with other people, humanity will continue to destroy itself. #FirstThoughtsWhenIWakeUp
