Press failed Covington Catholic kids, Internet saved them

A day after another story of Mad Hatter Mueller's investigation blew up in the face of the press like an exploding cigar, the press latched on to the tale of group of white privileged boys mocking a poor old Indian at the Lincoln Memorial who bangs a drum to honor his fellow Vietnam veterans.

Now we know that's a pack of lies. We know this not because of any gumshoe reporting by the Washington press corps, but because a few good citizens fact-checked the story and discovered the lies.

The initial anti-Catholic reporting by the Washington Post led to death threats that have closed Covington Catholic High in Kentucky, which the boys attend.

But the Indian, Nathan Phillips, is not a Vietnam veteran. Don Shipley, a former Navy SEAL who routinely outs fake warriors checked the man out.


Phillips was a Marine Reservist from 1972-1976 who was never deployed overseas.

He was a refrigeration mechanic, not a "recon Ranger."

He was punished for being AWOL three times and given a general discharge not an honorable one.

We learned from the Internet that Phillips has a history of banging his Indian drum at protests to troll conservatives over the last 20 years. He spent some time outside Trump Tower.

None of his activity is illegal. All of it is part of the public record. The military records are under Nathan Phillips Stanard as he was adopted and raised by the Stanard family.

I also get that Phillips has faced discrimination over the years.

But judging by the death threats the kids received when Phillips falsely accused them of harassing him, those days are long gone.

Phillips is a bully. The press was his accomplice. Reporters in Washington love to preen about their importance and brag about how they hold the powerful accountable.

But a group of Catholic boys waiting for their bus were taunted first by a group of black nationalists, and then by Chief Annoying Orange, and the media did not call out the grownups. The media attacked the boys who turned the other cheek and held their tongues in a very Christian manner.

Now the truth has come out -- no thanks to the press.

In fact, despite the press.

    1. Force Recon, not Forest.

      They're the cream of the Marines, similar to the LRRPs in 'Nam.

    2. LOL! It was admin day at CamPen where Marines get their affairs in order before heading out for Vietnam. Two hundred+ processed that day in 1967. Just before leaving there is a Gunny sitting at a table telling everyone he can cut them orders to stay stateside all you have to do is sign up to go to recon school. 200+ Marines told him no thanks, I'd rather go to Vietnam. True story and I think all of us probably made the right decision.

  2. The internet helps turn the media fire into a full blown inferno.

    The internet helps put out the fire.

    A two edged sword.

  5. Phillips, who changed his last name, has now been found to have been AWOL multiple times when he was stationed in the dense, muggy jungles of...Kansas. Another LibCommie in need of serious therapy.

  6. Everything the "progressives, liberals, lefties, socialis, communists, democrats, rinos, snob republicans, so called sj warriors, pompous resisters, racist race baiters, poverty pimping promoters, msm provocateurs, grifters, grafters, fascists ALL, accuse MAGA of being, THEY are.

    Truly forked tongue, insidious infiltration.

    To restrain from stating, with clarity and the honesty of a brick hit to side of head, is to deny THEIR innate contempt for MAGA.

    MAGA is US. All of US. Americans all.

    To Envy, to Covet, to Rage about being not worthy of having what others have earned, (and THEY have not even considered earning, merely taking), is the hubris of reliably fed bellies.

    ALL consume. Some do not earn what they consume. These some are who THEY are.

    WE earn. WE share by choice to share. WE determine MAGA to be who WE are.

    THEY exploit US. THEY impose upon US their insatiable obsession to take, to not earn. This is their nature, THEY can exist only because WE feed them. WE house them. WE shelter them. WE provide. THEY deride.

    The less fortunate are so because THEY choose to seek to gain by taking from US whatever WE earn.

    By hook and by crook.

    The upside to the mid terms is that THEY will display, with ever increasing fervancy, THEIR natures.

    The tendancy to succumbing to the 7 Deadly Sins is not new.

    WE enable those who have succumbed by feeding them, sa s any requirement to earn, in even the most minimum of ways, anything WE provide to them.

    WE feed the vermin and then bemoan the vermin being who THEY are.

    Is there a soul so void as to not feel the least shame in THEIR mooching, thieving, deceiving, pandering, pompous conniving, violent taking, etc.?

    Yes. There are many. THEY are truly not US. THEY are truly not MAGA. THEY are the pox upon ALL; themselves and everyone else.

    The Design & Creation is brutal enough.

    THEY rachet brutality to another level.

    WE enable THEM to do so, by feeding them, submitting to the false belief that there is goodness within everyone, and that this goodness remains possible from birth until death for everyone.

    It does not.

    How many times do the hands that feed need to be bitten for this to sink in?

    And for how much longer will even the most "give the benefit of the doubt" minded give credit where credit is NOT due?

    The Good Samiritan today would be mugged for his kindness.

  7. Maybe he meant Freon Ranger

  8. Then on Saturday evening he and fifteen to twenty other activist dopes tried to storm a Catholic mass with drums.

  9. Seems that real journalism is an endangered species; what has taken its place are rhetoric read from a script.

    Almost anyone willing to wait 24 hours and do internet searches might have exposed this false resume of
    Mr.Phillips.

    But that requires thought and effort and a loyalty to evidence that seems to have been kicked to the curb more and more.

  10. He was a refrigeration mechanic, not a "recon Ranger."

    Maybe a "Recon Ranger" reconditions ranges. I wonder if there's gas and electric are separate specialties.

    1. A reservist going awol to avoid...what, cleaning the refrigerator in the breakroom. I guess he didn't get the warrior business.

  11. Kinda curious...

    Couldn't beating a drum incessantly be considered creating a public nuisance?

    Wouldn't yelling epithets at miscellaneous people just minding their own business be considered creating a public nuisance or uttering "fighting words?"

    Where were the cops?

  12. "The military records are under Nathan Phillips Stanard as he was adopted and raised by the Stanard family."

    Were his adoptive parents white Christians?

    If so, the fact that he has dedicated his life to racist anti-white and bigotted anti-Christian hatred is just incredibly vile.

    So typically leftist.

    1. "Typically leftist" is exactly right!

      Reminds me of some other frauds who were brought up by white parents or grandparents but whose actions shame those parents. People like Colin Kaepernick and Barry Soetoro, long may they live in infamy!
