Leftist Tribal Activist Attempts to Intimidate Youth in MAGA Hat, Fails
Gun Watch ^ | 19 January, 2019 | Dean Weingarten

Posted on 01/19/2019 5:07:35 PM PST by marktwain



On 18 January, 2019, during the March for Life in Washington, D.C., another much smaller event was also scheduled. It was the first Indigenous Peoples March.  The video at the link shows there may have been a couple of hundred at the march, compared to many thousands at the 46th March for Life.

Nathan Phillips, an Oklahoma elder and Native American activist, was drumming and chanting during the two events. He moved away from his group and approached a group of pro-life teenagers, some of who were wearing MAGA hats.

The video can be seen below. Phillips gets right into the young man's personal space. It appears Phillips is trying to intimidate him, to get him to move or flinch, or push back. At one point Phillips drum appears to touch the young man's shoulder. Phillips beats the drum literally in the young man's face.  The drum stick is flashing by, only inches from his nose. At the same time, Phillips is chanting/screaming directly into the young man's face.  It appears to be an attempt at provocation by Phillips.

The young MAGA hat wearer refuses to be intimidated or provoked into a reaction that can be used against him.

It does not matter. The Washington Post runs a story claiming the young MAGA hat wearer showed disrespect by "smirking" at Phillips.

Phillips was involved in another incident in Michigan, where he claimed to have been disrespected. No evidence but his testimony was apparent. From his account, he appears to have provoked any incident that might have happened in Michigan.

At newsmaven.io/indiancountrytoday, the writer tries to portray the incident as teenagers in MAGA hats ridiculing, mocking, and taunting Phillips.

Some of the commenters there watched the video and are not buying the "mocking" narrative.

from onlygirl:
The elder demanded that boys attention, and the boy stood there and willingly gave it. The elder made him a part of it and the boy accepted by respectfully giving his attention to the elder. My sons who are half native would have done the exact same thing. Honestly to me it looks like the kids were enjoying it and the elder made them a part of it. I guess people want to find something to be offended about. There is nothing wrong with making america great again either. His hat is just a hat.
 from Red C:
No disrespect seen by the kids. The elder activist confronted THEM, while they were minding their own business, broke away from the march. They said and did nothing racist or demeaning, just danced and tried to chant along, or stood silently in their discomfort and tried to have a good time in spite of not knowing just how to react to a grown man approaching them whose culture they were not part of. Bullying and hating on these kids by the leftist agenda divisive SJWs at ICTMN is the abuse here. And I am native.

Watch the video, make up your own mind. Social Justice Warriors are piling on. They have given out the number of the school the  teens came from. They claim to identify the teen who silently stood and endured the provocation by Phillips.

This is a creating of an outrage from nothing, unless you consider the obvious provocation by Phillips.  It was created for the media, to show the power of the left to intimidate and cower anyone who is not in one of their favored identity groups.

This is how fake news is created.

After watching the video, it was clear the tribal activist was attempting to provoke an incident.

When it did not work, they simply lied about it and called it taunting and mockery.

Wow, thanks for posting. The reality is TOTALLY different from that portrayed in several mainstream propaganda pieces I read earlier today.

The stoic kid in the red MAGA hat was awesome. He handled the attempted provocation exactly right. Props to him.

I have a lot of respect for Injuns in what they could yet become.
These ‘aim’ types though seem a bunch of racist bums.

The earlier thread: Outrage as non-Native youth wearing #MAGA hats taunt and disrespect Native elder

Notice the spin on the title, since most of the readers won't watch the video and decide for themselves what is actually happening.

The leftist jackass (he's not there as a so-called indigenous person, he's there as a leftist, obviously) is practicing microaggression, a.k.a. bullying -- and it's typical, even diagnostic, of leftists, and clearly fell flat on its ass.

Exactly. The headline readers are still acting under the assumption that people on the other side are telling the truth.

In fact, they lie constantly.

This is one of the clearest examples.

Being a mix of Scots-Irish and Tsalagi, when I first read the story and viewed the picture, I felt the elder was being disrespected...I viewed the video and still felt some disrespect...After more and more comments from other FReepers, I did a little research into Nathan Phillips and saw how close he was to AIM...The elder was wrong to face up with the teenagers and as an “elder” in the Omaha tribe, he should not act in the way he did...I thought the young man was being disrespectful, but he was standing his own ground...That is to be commended...

I, being of mixed heritage, refuse to use the term “Native American” because that side of my ancestry was here before this was America...I don’t use the word “Indian” either because, again, that side of my family was not from India...I prefer to use “tribal”....

At any rate, the “elder” was in the wrong...He should act as an “elder” and NOT as an “activist”...

99% of the time when nooses are found in trees, racial graffiti scrawled on wall, racial rape, etc etc etc, it's the ones who did it screaming the loudest.

Fake Hate Crimes.

I took my usual check of CNN. At about 6pm today a female announcer held forth. She blamed the whole thing of the “disrespect” in society today. Then she unloaded. She blamed a prominent political figure for it all. No need to put his name, for most people will guess who it is. Made an important public announcement to today.

If the Indian did that to ConservaTeen, that drum would be shoved down his throat.

There’s another article on a Catholic diocese investigating the behavior of these students.

Actually, in my opinion, anyone born here since this country became “America” are “Native Americans”....
