The images in a series of videos that went viral on social media Saturday showed a tense scene near the Lincoln Memorial. In them, a Native American man steadily beats his drum at the tail end of Fridays Indigenous Peoples March while singing a song of unity for indigenous people to be strong in the face of the ravages of colonialism that now include police brutality, poor access to health care and the ill effects of climate change on reservations. Surrounding him are a throng of young, mostly white teenage boys, several wearing Make America Great Again caps, with one standing about a foot from the drummers face wearing a relentless smirk.

You have good ears. He is singing the AIM song, which is the anthem of the AIM, the group most famous for its support of Leonard Peltier. Peltier murdered 2 FBI agents.
Very good catch!
Most of the kids were enjoying it, the one smirking kid walked up and invaded the drummer’s space.
Say what you want, if some little shit gets up in my face like that, I’ll break his nose.
Tell that to your grandkids.
You have it backwards.
The young man in the MAGA hat did not move. The drummer moved in on him, into *his* space.
The drummer, Phillips, appears to be attempting to provoke the young man.
Actually he didn't, you are wrong. You can see for yourself in the video above, and other videos.
Tell that to your grandkids.
Keep believing that, it will get you know know where.
I am not going to do a forensic dive, you can talk about editing and such with someone else.
Yes I have been blocked, and I have blocked others due to their lies and I have told them why.
Today two guys tried to tell me that the polls never had Clinton winning, and when I gave them links all I got was I am stupid. It is not true. bla bla bla. They just cannot admit they were wrong and if they watched other channels other than CNN, MSNBC they would know the facts.
Another Freeper posted it, and it works great. Don't need a membership, don't need to allow cookies...
It is sad to see a Freeper fall for the leftist BS. Most people who post hear can see through the it. You should look more carefully, and not be fooled by the left.
He pushed his way into the boys crowd in a harassing manner IMO. The young boy in front would not move to allow him to get any closer to the rest.
It was getting ugly, and I was thinking: Ive got to find myself an exit out of this situation and finish my song at the Lincoln Memorial, Mr. Phillips told The Post. I started going that way, and that guy in the hat stood in my way and we were at an impasse. He just blocked my way and wouldnt allow me to retreat.
So going forward into a crowd of people is a "retreat" now. Only in the mind of the left wing activist who sees a chance to go after pro-life conservative kids.
I should have known it was a media ‘set up’ of fake news to make MAGA group look bad. You only have to see a few seconds more of the before footage to see that.
The drummer approaching into the young boys (encroaching). And getting right up into a few inches of one of the boys beating the drum right into his face. The boy didn’t run away. And just smiled. So now he the young boy is labeled everything evil.
And naturally a full media was right on the scene before hand and following the whole encounter. Selectively posting only part of it. And like all of the media fake news, they knew full well what was going on. And reporting a ‘story’ to support their agenda only.
I can see the memes, strategies, smear campaigns unfolding.
It provides a window in to their operations.
I also don’t mind the true believers being so mixed up and detached from reality. They waste and energy time on idiocy.
Excellent thread on the violence of the indians
At around 2:15 in the video at that first link, the boys fall silent, and one of them asks, “What’s going on?” Suddenly the boys seem to realize something is not right with this situation - because the older man won’t stop drumming in the one boy’s face.
Fake News According to this later posting which has links disputing the event
So open a casino Chief.
