Dem Rep DEFENDS Hate Group That Attacked Covington Kids

Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) slandered the now-famous Covington Catholic High School students at the center of a made-up controversy with demonstrably false claims.  

She also defended a radical group with that attacked them on video, calling the teens “racists,” “bigots,” “white crackers,” “f**gots,” and “incest kids.”

“The boys were protesting a woman’s right to choose & yelled ‘it’s not rape if you enjoy it,'” Omar tweeted. “They were taunting 5 Black men before they surrounded Phillips and led racist chants. Sandmann’s family hired a right wing PR firm to write his non-apology.”

 

Nearly everything in Omar’s tweet is factually inaccurate.

Rep. Omar’s claim: The boys were protesting a woman’s right to choose & yelled “it’s not rape if you enjoy it”

What actually happened: One boy, who many are claiming did not attend Covington Catholic High School, made the comment as the large group of students was waiting for their bus to arrive. Omar’s statement tries to portray the statement as coming from multiple members of the group, which is factually false.

 


Rep. Omar further claimed the teens were taunting five black men before they surrounded Philips (the Native American elder who approached them banging a drum) and led racist chants.

Here’s a video of the Black Hebrew Israelites, a group even on the leftist Southern Poverty Law Center’s radar, screaming vile epithets at the students.
 


Worse, there’s incontrovertible video footage showing Phillips, aged 63 or 64, approaching the students and beating his drum point-blank in 17-year-old Nick Sandmann’s face.

Finally, Sandmann’s family hired a PR firm, but so what? Liberals tried to permanently tarnish his reputation because of their visceral hatred for anything even peripherally connected to President Trump.

Omar has previously tweeted anti-Semitic message and shamelessly pushed a homophobic conspiracy involving Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC).
