Furious Furloughed Federal Workers Descend on DC Swamp to Demand Action

It’s the ruling class versus the working class on the streets of DC this weekend as protesters take their gripes to Pennsylvania Avenue.

government shutdown

Americans are becoming increasingly disenfranchised with the asinine behavior of our elected officials, and a breaking point seems to be in the offing.

The partial government shutdown that we are currently navigating is undoubtedly sending us in the direction of civil unrest, as nearly a million government workers are being asked to continue toiling away at their jobs despite their net-zero paychecks.

This has led to massive callouts at the TSA, the suspension of routine food inspections by the FDA, and a general sense of anger and lament among We The People.  The Washington fat cats are too proud to compromise, and the working class Americans who are affected by this sinful pride have reached a tipping point.

It’s the ruling class versus the working class on the streets of DC this weekend as protesters take their gripes to Pennsylvania Avenue.

Hundreds of furloughed government workers and contractors descended on the White House on Thursday to plead to be allowed to return to work.

Holding signs such as “Stop the war on workers” and “We want work, not walls,” the protesters assembled in the bitter cold outside of AFL-CIO union headquarters before making their way to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

The anger was palpable.

“I’d like the shutdown to end. I’d like to go back to my job,” said Matthew Chrichton, a 32-year-old staffer for the Peace Corps, adding that he’d moved to Washington for his job four months ago and “living in DC is expensive.”

“I have rent to pay,” he said. “I have bills I need to pay. I want to go to work, and I can’t because they can’t figure out how to fund the government.”

The action comes after weeks of populists uprisings in France, in which the French people have railed against their own government’s lack of care for the people of that nation.

If the American government shutdown doesn’t end soon, there is little doubt that scenes similar to those we’ve witnessed in Paris could be on the horizon.

After Harassing Catholic Teens, Indian Man STORMED Church and Disrupted Mass

Things just got WAAAY more interesting…

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:

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:

Here’s the full, unedited clip of the altercation at the Lincoln Memorial:

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?

HE LIED: Indian Activist Who Harassed Catholic Teens Did Not Serve In Vietnam War

Another mainstream media narrative buster…

Nathan Phillips, the Native American activist who harassed the Catholic teens at the Lincoln Memorial, did serve his country.

He was a Marine.

For that, he is owed a debt of gratitude.

However, Phillips clearly claimed in a CNN interview that he served in Vietnam.

He lied.

From CNN, (bold mine)…

CNN: “Let me ask you about what happened to you. These boys in the middle of this group and you find yourself surrounded. How did that happen and what did that feel like as a person standing there face to face with a young man who seems to be staring at you or glaring at you? How would you describe that moment?

Phillips: “When I was there and I was standing there and I seen that group of people in front of me and I seen the angry faces and all of that, I realized I had put myself in a really dangerous situation. Here’s a group of people who were angry at somebody else and I put myself in front of that, and all of a sudden, I’m the one whose all that anger and all that wanting to have the freedom to just rip me apart, that was scary. And I’m a Vietnam veteran and I know that mentality of “There’s enough of us. We can do this.

WATCH:

More from Washington Times:

According to multiple news accounts, the activist is 64 years old, which means he would have been 18 years old in 1973, the last year any U.S. combat units were stationed in Vietnam. Mr. Phillips also claims to be a Marine veteran, although the last Marine combat units left Vietnam in 1971.

A careful reading of Mr. Phillips‘ own descriptions does not make clear if he ever set foot in Vietnam. Instead, he has used much more careful language claiming he is a “Vietnam times veteran,” an ambiguous phrasing that led many media accounts to conclude he was a combat veteran.

Phillips 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.
