    Really disturbing and ridiculous at the same time.

    Apparently these kids are flunking US history. Why would they chant "build a wall" at a Native American man whose ancestors were in the US hundreds of years before the kids' immigrant ancestors? What's the point to harassing a peaceful person who isn't harming them in any way?

    Looks like these kids will probably be doxxed.

    Apparently they don’t teach history at CovCath.

    This is huge news here in Cincinnati so I feel certain the kids will receive some sort of punishment.

    Where were the chaperones?? As for the kids, they were the ones using their phones to record the behavior of fellow students. When will kids learn that there are consequences for their actions? There are so many great young people out there...then you have these kids...MOO

    I can't watch the video again, it's so disgusting. The disrespect, the smugness, the hateful sneer from this student and the rest just reminds me again that racism and the absence of anything sacred flourishes in this country. And the absolute irony of shouting "BUILD THAT WALL" to an Indigenous person, specifically a Native American Omaha Nation who also happens to be a Vietnam Veteran is profoundly ignorant and bigoted.

    This isn't even political or based on a legitimate issue. It's just shameful ignorance.

    Just nauseating.

    This is what it looks like when it crawls out of the woodwork: hatred's cloying sneer.

    Usually upperclassmen straighten out the underclassmen. Very sad.

    Sounds like at least some of the chaperones were egging them on, based on the heavy.com article I just read. And then there's this from the mother of the student who, I think, is the one at the center of the video:

    Most articles I have read say the elderly man was trying to make peace between two groups of students via his blessing song.
    The student in the MAGA hat actually walked up to the elderly man and tried to stare him down.
    And it was political.
    Students and some adults were chanting about 'the wall' and a political name for 2020.IMO

    Possibly the 'build the wall' chant was in response to the protest of the government shut-down by the indigenous people. Funding for the wall is one big reason for the shut-down. IMO

    NKY Catholic school faces backlash after video of incident at Indigenous Peoples March surfaces

    Iron Eyes told The Enquirer that the inaugural march was intended in part to condemn the ongoing federal government shutdown. His wife has been working without pay as a clinical director on a reservation, and he spoke about the adverse effect on many indigenous people.

    About 4 p.m., the Diocese of Covington and Covington Catholic High issued a joint statement that read, in part:

    "We condemn the actions of the Covington Catholic High School students towards Nathan Phillips specifically, and Native Americans in general. ... We extend our deepest apologies to Mr. Phillips. This behavior is opposed to the Church’s teachings on the dignity and respect of the human person.

    "The matter is being investigated and we will take appropriate action, up to and including expulsion."

    Who really started this? Longer version of the confrontation



    Nathan Phillips who banged the drum in the boy's face is an experienced protester (Occupy movement)
