Looks like the indigenous veteran was the one who actually confronted the kids while they were peacefully waiting for the bus to arrive after the March for Life. When I first saw the clip, I was disgusted and wondering what these boys were trying to accomplish. Now that I’ve seen the full video of what actually transpired, it’s pretty apparent that four grown men had been verbally assaulting these kids and a group of Native American men confronted these boys and started drumming in front of their faces. They had been practicing their school cheer to drown out the four aforementioned men and when Phillips arrived (the Native American) they thought that it was all fun and games, but realized that something more serious was going on when he wouldn’t stop drumming near one of the student’s face.
He also falsely claimed that they ended up surrounding him and wouldn’t let him leave - that he had been subject to derogatory remarks and that they had been screaming “build the wall”.
Even CNN and the NY Times are backtracking from their initial reports.
Now the student at the center of this is receiving death threats.
