Tucker: MAGA hat-wearing students smeared by media


>>Tucker: GOOD EVENING AND WELCOME TO TUCKER CARLSON TONIGHT. IF YOU WERE ON SOCIAL MEDIA OVER THE WEEKEND YOU PROBABLY SAW THIS VIDEO. IT WAS SHOT FRIDAY AFTERNOON ON THE STEPS OF THE LINCOLN MEMORIAL IT SEEMED TO SHOW A GROUP OF TEENAGE BOYS TAUNTING AN ELDERLY AMERICAN INDIAN MAN WHO WAS HOLDING A DRUM. THE YOUNG MEN HAD COME TO WASHINGTON FROM A CATHOLIC SCHOOL IN KENTUCKY TO DEMONSTRATE IN THE MARCH FOR LIFE. SOME OF THEM WORE MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN HATS. THEY SEEM MENACING. WITHIN HOURS THE VIDEO IS BEING REPLAYED BY VIRTUALLY EVERY NEWS OUTLET IN AMERICA. HERE’S WHAT YOU MAY HAVE SEEN. ♪ [CHANTING] ♪>>Tucker: THE AMERICAN INDIAN MAN WITH THE DRUM YOU JUST SAW IS CALLED NATHAN PHILLIPS. AND HE DESCRIBED THE YOUNG MEN HE ENCOUNTERED, THE ONES IN THE HATS AS AGGRESSIVE AND THREATENING. ESSENTIALLY SHOCK TROOPS FOR DONALD TRUMP. WATCH.>>HEARD THEM SAYING BUILD THAT WALL. BUILD THAT WALL. THIS IS INDIGENOUS LANDS. NOT SUPPOSED TO HAVE A WALL HERE. NEVER DID.>>Tucker: IT’S HARD TO REMEMBER THE LAST TIME THE GREAT AMERICAN PEOPLE MACHINE PRODUCED A CLEARER CONTRAST BETWEEN GOOD AND EVIL. IT WAS ESSENTIALLY AN ENTIRE MORALITY PLAY SHRUNK DOWN TO FOUR MINUTES FOR FACEBOOK. ON THE ONE SIDE YOU HAD A NOBLE TRIBAL ELDER WEATHER BEATEN CALM. YOU CAN IMAGINE A SINGLETARY SLIDING DOWN HIS CHEEK AT THE SENSELESSNESS OF IT ALL. AND ON THE OTHER SIDE HEEDLESS YOUNGS MEN FROM THE SOUTH DRUNK ON RACISM AND WHITE PRIVILEGE. THE IRONY WAS OVERWHELMING. THE INDIGENOUS MAN’S LAND STOLEN BY THE ANCESTORS OF THESE BOYS IN MAGA HATS AND DARE TO LECTURE HIM ABOUT WALLS WHO LOOK VERY MUCH LIKE HIM OUT OF WHAT THEY WERE CALLING OUT OF THEIR COUNTRY. IT WAS INFURIATING TO A LOT OF PEOPLE. AT THE SAME TIME, WAS ALSO STRANGELY COMFORTING TO THOSE WHO WATCHED IT FROM BROOKLYN AND L.A. THE PEOPLE WHO RUN THIS COUNTRY HAVE LONG SUSPECTED THAT MIDDLE AMERICA IS A HIVE OF NATIVIST BIGOTRY AND NOW THEY HAD PROOF OF THAT. A CAUSE FOR A CELEBRATION OF OUTRAGE A BECAUSE NOTHING QUITE AS SATISFYING AS HAVING YOUR OWN BIASES CONFIRMED. BUT DID THE VIDEO REALLY DESCRIBE WHAT HAPPENED? THAT SHOULD HAVE BEEN THE FIRST QUESTION THAT JIRNLSES JOURNALISTS ASKED. CHECKING FACTS IS WHAT JOURNALISTS ARE PAID TO DO. FIRST LINE OF THE JOB DESCRIPTION. YET, AMAYSINGLY. ALMOST NOBLE IN THE AMERICAN MEDIA DID THAT. AND THAT’S A SHAME BECAUSE THERE WAS A LOT TO CHECK. THE FULL VIDEO OF WHAT HAPPENED ON FRIDAY IN WASHINGTON IS WELL OVER AN HOUR LONG. THE FOUR MINUTES THAT MADE TWITTER DON’T TELL THE STORY BUT, INSTEAD, DISTORT THE STORY. A LONGER LOOK SHOWS THAT THE BOYS FROM COVINGTON CATHOLIC IN KENTUCKY WERE NOT A ROVING MOB LOOKING FOR A FIGHT. THEY WERE, IN FACT, AND IT SHOWS IT ON THE TAPE STANDING IN PLACE WAITING TO BE PICKED UP BY A BUS. AS THEY WAITED THERE. MEMBERS OF A GROUP CALLED THE BLACK HEBREW ISRAELITES BLACK SUPREMACIST ORGANIZATION BEGAN TAUNTING THEM WITH RACIAL EPITAPHS AND THEN NATHAN PHILLIPS, THE NOW FAMOUS INDIAN ACTIVIST APPROACHED THEM POUNDING ON HIS DRUM. THE FOOTAGE SEEMS TO SUGGEST THE BOYS WERE UNSURE WHETHER PHILLIPS WAS HOSTILE OR TAKING THEIR SIDE AGAINST THE BLACK HEBREW ISRAELITES. BUT, IN ANY CASE, THERE IS NO EVIDENCE AT ALL THAT ANYBODY SAID BUILD A WALL. HERE’S A SELECTION OF WHAT DIDN’T MAKE SOCIAL MEDIA. [SHOUTING]>>Tucker: SO WHAT REALLY HAPPENED ON FRIDAY? YOU CAN WATCH FOR YOURSELF AND DECIDE. THERE IS PLENTY OF VIDEO OUT THERE OF IT. AND SOME OF IT IS FASCINATING AND REVEALING. WHAT WE KNOW FOR CERTAIN AT THIS POINT IS THAT OUR CULTURAL LEADERS ARE IN EFFECT BIGOTS. THEY UNDERSTAND THE REALITY ON THE BASIS OF STEREOTYPES. WHEN THE FACTS DON’T CONFORM TO WHAT THEY THINK THEY KNOW, THEY IGNORE THE FAX. THEY SEE THIS COUNTRY NOT A GROUP OF PEOPLE OR OF CITIZENS BUT AS A COLLECTION OF GROUPS AND SOME OF THOSE GROUPS THEY’RE CONVINCED ARE MORALLY INTERIOR TO OTHER GROUPS. THEY KNOW THAT’S TRUE THEY SAY IT OUT LOUD. AND THAT BELIEF SHAPES ALMOST ALL OF THEIR PERCEPTIONS OF THE WORLD. IT’S NOT SURPRISING THEN THAT WHEN A GROUP OF PRO-LIFE CATHOLIC KIDS WHO LOOK LIKE LACROSSE PLAYERS AND LIVE IN KENTUCKY ARE ACCUSED OF WRONGDOING THE MEDIA DON’T STAND FOR A MOMENT WITHOUT CASTING JUDGMENT. SUGGESTED THE BOYS NEED TO BE EXPELLED FROM SCHOOL. AMY NAVARRO CALLED THE BOYS RACIST AND ASS WIPES AND WENT AFTER TEACHERS AND PARENTS. OTHERS CALL FOR VIOLENCE AGAINST THEM. CNN LEGAL ANALYST SUGGESTED ONE OF THE BOYS SHOULD BE, QUOTE: PUNCHED IN THE FACE. FORMER CNN CONTRIBUTOR AGREED. ASKED ON TWITTER HAVE YOU EVER SEEN A MORE PUNCHABLE FACE THAN THIS KID’S. KATHY GRIFFIN SEEMED TO ENCOURAGE A MOB TO RISE UP AND HURT THESE BOYS. NAME THESE KIDS. I WANT NAMES. SHAME THEM IF YOU THINK THESE FERS WOULDN’T DOCKS NEW A HEART BEAT. NAMES PLEASE AND STORIES FROM PEOPLE WHO CAN IDENTIFY THEM AND VOUCH FOR THEIR IDENTITY. THANK YOU. HOLLYWOOD FILM PRODUCER JACK MORSI WANTED THE BOYS KILLED MAGA KIDS GO SCREAMING HEAD FIRST INTO HARST INTO HATST INTO HATS FINTO HATS FIRTO HATS FIRST INTO THE WOOD CHIPPER. IN CASE ANYONE WANTED TO GET STARTED ON PROJECT. TWITTER WHICH CLAIMS TO HAVE A POLICY AGAINST VIOLENCE STOOD BY SILENTLY AS THIS ALL HAPPENED. IN CASE YOU THINK. THE ABUSE WAS BIPARTISAN. IT WASN’T JUST LEFT VS. RIGHT. IT WAS THE PEOPLE IN POWER ATTACKING THOSE BELOW THEM. AS A GROUP. PLENTY OF REPUBLICANS IN WASHINGTON WERE HAPPY TO SAVAGE THE COVINGTON KIDS PROBABLY TO INOCULATE THEMSELVES FROM CHARGES OF IMPROPER THOUGHT. BILL KRISTOL ASKED HIS TWITTER FOLLOWERS TO CONSIDER THE CONTRAST BETWEEN THE CALM DIGNITY AND QUIET STRENGTH PLAINTIFF PHILLIPS AND THE BEHAVIOR OF MAGA BRATS WHO HAVE ABSORBED THE SPIRIT OF TRUMPISM. AND THEN WHEN THE ACTUAL FACTS EMERGED KRISTOL QUIETLY DELETED HIS TWEET. HE NEVER APOLOGIZED OF COURSE. HE HASN’T APOLOGIZED FOR THE IRAQ WAR EITHER. NO NEED PEOPLE KEEP GIVING HIM MONEY. THE COVINGTON STUDENTS MIGHT AS WELL HAVE SPIT ON THE CROSS THAT STORY HAS SENSE BEEN PULLED, TOO. THE AUTHOR ADMITTED HE NEVER EVEN BOTHERED TO WATCH ALL OF THE VIDEOS. HE KNEW WHAT HE KNEW AND THAT WAS ENOUGH. WHAT’S SO INTERESTING ABOUT THE COVERAGE OF FRIDAY’S VIDEOS IS HOW MUCH OF IT MENTIONED SOMETHING CALLED PRIVILEGE. ALEX CONTROLLED SUBSTANCE AN EDITOR WROTE THIS FROM EMPTY SCHOOL THROUGH COLLEGE I WENT TO SCHOOL WITH SHELTER TERRED MIDDLE CLASS WHITE BOYS WHO COULD DEVASTATE WITH A SMIRK. A FACIAL GESTURE THAT WEAPONIZED THEIR PRIVILEGE. INFURIATINGLY YOU CAN’T FIGHT THAT F’ING SMIRK WITH A PUNCH OR WORDS. WE SAW THAT AS TRUMP SMIRKED HIS WAY THROUGH THE ELECTION AND SEE IT AS THAT BOY’S FAMILY AND SCHOOLS PROTECT HIM IIM IHATE THAT SMIRK IT SAYS I’M RICHER, I’M WHITE AND I’M A GUY: THESE ARE HIGH SCHOOL KIDS FROM KENTUCKY. DO THEY REALLY HAVE MORE PRIVILEGE AN ALEX CONTROLLED SUBSTANCE FROM GIZ MOTO? PROBABLY NOT. IN FACT PROBABLY MUCH LESS. FAR LESS PRIVILEGED IN FACT THAN EVERYONE WHO HAS CALLED FOR THEM TO BE DESTROYED ON THE BASIS THEY HAVE TOO MUCH PRIVILEGE. CONSIDER KARA SWISHER AN OPINION COLUMNIST FOR THE “NEW YORK TIMES.” SWISHER WENT TO DAY SCHOOL AND GEORGETOWN AND GRADUATE DEGREE AT COLUMBIA. RICH AND FAMOUS BY BILLIONAIRE TECH CEO HAND MAIDEN. NOBODY CONSIDERS HER VERY TALENTED AND SOMEWHAT HIGHLY INFLUENTIAL IN OUR SOCIETY. SHE MORE PRIVILEGED THAN THE BOYS OF COVINGTON CATHOLIC AT KENTUCKY? OF COURSE SHE IS. MAYBE THAT’S WHY SHE FEELS THE NEED TO CALL THEM NAZIS WHICH SHE DID REPEATEDLY. WHAT’S ACTUALLY GOING ON HERE? WELL, IT’S NOT REALLY ABOUT RACE. IN FACT, MOST OF THE STORIES ABOUT RACE AREN’T REALLY ABOUT RACE THIS SO NO DIFFERENT. THIS IS ABOUT THE PEOPLE IN FOX ALL POX ALL POWEALL POWERLL POWER PROTECTING THEIR POWER AND DESTROYING THOSE AND MOCKING THOSE WEAKER THAN THEY ARE. THE REASON SIMPLE THE LEADERS HAVE NOT IMPROVED THE LIVES OF MOST PEOPLE IN AMERICA. THEY CAN’T ADMIT THAT BECAUSE IT WAS DISCREDIT THEM. INSTEAD THEY ATTACK THE VERY PEOPLE THEY HAVE FAILED. THE PROBLEM THEY WILL TELL US WITH KENTUCKY ISN’T THAT THE POLICIES HAVE HURT THE PEOPLE WHO LIVE THERE IT’S THAT THE PEOPLE WHO LIVE THERE ARE IMMORAL BECAUSE THEY ARE BIGOTS. THEY DESERVE THEIR POVERTY AND THEIR OPIOID ADDICTION. THEY DESERVE TO DIE YOUNG. THAT’S WHAT OUR LEADERS TELL THEMSELVES.

  1. Liberal brought here by Junior HS daughter's homework assignment to find a video op-ed and write about it. This is a top-notch opinion piece. But its a bit depressing because the tactics he dissects are now the norm on all sides of the political debate. We've all lost something to the sound-bite news industry. Nobody has time to fact-check and there is no editing. The average consumer of social media news and that's most of us, are easily duped. Any white parent should be incensed at the bigotry and hate these kids were subjected to. And how does that help the left's cause? It stirs up the base (sound familiar). I don't like it and I don't want to be a part of any mob. I have to believe that most conservatives out there are also repulsed by knee jerk mob hatred.

  2. This guy is shooting off his opinion. I’m glad he eventually shows what really happened but He’s part of the news, he’s not payed to give his opinion.

  3. The land of the Native LOL did they make grass create trees air for us to breathe and dirt to plant a food that's God's work and he put us on this planet and not give you right to think it's your land LOL

  4. Black people can't be racist they're only stupid sorry only a small % is stupid but that is the % the news media protect

  5. I just tried to go back and listen and view what was shared on the public media. Seem Tucker in his description and insinuations is inciting more verbal hate. This was a misunderstanding between these groups. That native elder said he was in fear. Tucker does not know what that man felt or what the kid felt. He has used descriptives words that definitely are blowing the incident up even more. But he can pass judgement and put his two cents worth in. There were a lot of people there, you still don't know what was happening, who said what and how they all perceived what was going on.

  6. I am still listening to Tucker. Still passing judgment and ranting on what others said in reply to what has been posted. He is one of those posting hate to build up the rhetoric.

  7. This shows a teen perfectly living the bible verse ( Matthew 5:39 ) "Resist not evil" . That is Don't be goaded into a useless confrontation.

  8. Nathan Phillips, with respect for being a veteran, comes with also disappointment because he straight out lied about everything he said. Claiming that the students chanted "Build that wall" is fake. It was actually the 4 black mans with thick coats on that said those words, well not in a chanting way.

    Second, he said he got spit on, it's true at the same time he maybe deserve a different kind of punishment because he admitting in his own video for punching the woman's boyfriend BEFORE she spits at him and call him a 'child killer'. Idk understand why would she say that but I can understand her anger, but why did he punch her boyfriend is the real question?

  9. I find it funny they felt so threatened by a group of kids from KY! I live in Ky, the majority of our kids know how to act and yes they are conservative kids.

  10. The funny thing is, liberals want hate speech to be band, if you call someone fat that’s hate speech, but it’s not hate speech if you demand a group of school kids to be punched, killed or hunted down or asking for all of there names to be released and where they live, that’s not hate speech, remember what ever the left say is fine and perfectly legal but when it does suit them it’s illegal, sounds a bit like fascism to me.

  11. Utterly ridiculous and insane, so called adults calling for any sort of violence against the young people. These young people should be able to look to their leaders to lead them in Truth not selfishness. Shame on everyone who call for violence on any Americans for supporting their own President. They are only going to end up pushing people over to President Trump again. Only this time he’ll have a bigger majority🙃hahaha. MAGA IJN

  12. …..the ONLY reason Trump supporters wear that hat is to get a reaction – they do NOT care about making America great again, they never did!!!

  13. Radio talk show host Hugh Hewitt also put down these kids. He showed what a phony he is. BTW Nathan Phillips never went to Vietnam.

  14. Dude the Indian guy seemed pretty racist to me. And putting this crap on young white boys who wasn't even around in those times. I'm scared for younger small white boys. These are innocent children and they're getting suppressed pushed aside in Society. Young white boys and Men wasn't even around in the Native Indian and slavery times. But yeah they are hated just because of the colour of their skin… these people are hating them as soon as they're born.

  15. Those white boys are 100% more privileged than Native Americans. The government failed Native Americans not white boys

  16. I LOVE this MORE Democrats will join the Walk Away Movement seeing time and time again whos the liars and trouble makers are. Nick Sandmann ( the kid) parents are suing CNN for 250 million and the Washington post for 250 Million He has a DAM good case all on tape.

  17. consider those black Israelite racists that yelling racial slurs at the students they clearly less privileged than them

  18. I love you Tucker. Tell it like it is. You are the only voice of reason in America today. God help us

  19. I hope this kid wins all his lawsuits and uses the money to break up the social media monopoly ! Richard Smokers

  20. All I can hope is that the majority of America can recognize this for what it is and what the left is trying to do… I can only hope

  21. From the beginning i didnt understand. All I saw was a kid standing with a nervous confused smile 🤷‍♀️

  22. The smirking boy, his parents and school sued CNN for 275 million and Washington post for 250 million. Hopefully this will teach them a lesson.

  23. "Look at these racist crackers" (An approximation of what was said). Let's examine the irony of this statement. "Cracker" is a black term, derogatory in nature, used against whites. It is essentially the black version of the "N" word. So the person responsible for shouting this sentence is condemning racism while being racist in the same breath. Love the double standard.

  24. Tucker is definitely one of the best news anchors in the United States of America.

    From a dane. God bless.

  25. The only racism was coming from the “Black Hebrew Israelites”. Their language was absolutely foul. So no criticism of them was forthcoming.

  26. As a working class white male , I work in construction, I come home filthy , covered in sand , cement and dirt . I literally stink of “ privilege “ , I wonder if my “privilege “ is worth as much as journalist?

  27. Heres the thing. ..even of they were taunting him being an asshole isnt illegal if it was 2/3 of democrats would be in prison.
    Side note we should build the wall and the indian moron doesnt realize the indians lost the ears so it is not their land and no its not stolen

  28. Tired of liberals.
    Use these old words coming back, and the next things are going to be war.
    Don't fight on the wrong side.

  29. Are you trying to tell me that a video that was taken off of the internet which was a clip of an even longer video could possibly have been taken out of context. This is the internet you can't lie here

  30. I hope Kathy Griffen gets her stupid butt thrown out of social media for endless hate speech inciting violence.. oh I forgot she's a Democrate. Rules dont apply to her and the rest of the elitists.

  31. Dam when did it become a crime to be white? I guess I should be thrown in jail because of my skin color. I never seen so much hate in my life thanks Obama.

  32. That Indian is an embarrassment to his nation.. I have an idea I'm going to give him a new name lying crying little cub

  33. I'm fascinated how something like this can possibly get a single dislike let alone thousands. I'd be really interested to hear from one of you which part you disagreed with.

  34. calls the white kids racist because they support trump in wanting to build a wall. liberal media is ridiculous

  35. I freaking hate the media what the hell is wrong with these people?
    I was wondering where that poor teenager looks nervous now I understand why

  36. "This is indigenous land, sniffle, we never had walls here"…. and howd that work out for YOUR way of life.

  37. Wait…so those native americans hate the european americans for migrating into there…isnt it a bit xenophobic of them?

  38. Someone tried to paint them as something they weren't. The major news outlets that covered and continued to smear that kid needs to be sued but not for money, they should be sued for their business license and the corporation closed permanently and any reporter that had anything to do with working that story without the facts need to be banned from ever working as a journalist again.

  39. Ana Navarro is a complete idiot and a national disgrace. All these jackasses rushed into judgment and condemned these innocent kids are nothing but a bunch of whack jobs.

  40. The black guys behaved abominably, the schoolkids were far too unruly for which I blame their teachers and the native American man behaved foolishly. I personallywouldn't go deriving any great right left morals of the story from the whole sorry incident.

  41. How pale face white man, in breed, child molesters, yep that's everything. Who's the racist? Left any comments? How you gonna excuse this, it's their fault, so your people were openly racist bigots, or don't matter if their black they are no better than anyone else, so you can call names, but you know what the score is.

  42. We are not black hebrew israelites we are just hebrew israelites we have always been dark from shem to now and we are not black we are light brown to dark brown

  43. One question.  What the ^&%$ was the Covington Catholic School doing sponsoring a school trip to a political event (The Right to Life March) where students were wearing political clothing (The MAGA hats)? (Rolling eyes)

  44. Seemed? It doesn't seem like anything but what it is. These teenagers were mocking them they we're being menacing. Regardless of all the other evidence that you pulled up and all the other footage all the other videos. Still doesn't change what we saw and this one. The fact that matter is is these kids should have been kids and not involved in this political battle. They should have never been put in the situation because they're kids. I don't blame them. But I do not condone their actions regardless we need to take responsibility for our actions and what we do. They were mocking these Native American people.

  45. You gotta admit that using Native American tribes names for military aircraft equipment is kinda messed up! 1. Apache Helicopters
    2. Comanche Helicopters
    3. Night Hawk
    4. Little Bird
    5. Tomahawk Missile
    6. Kiowa
    7. Apache Longbow

  46. what the hell is going on!! how is it ok to do this to kids who did nothing wrong………..unreal, the adults asking for the boys to be in trouble should be hung out to dry

  47. Sometimes, fake news platforms like cnn and others will smear the story and distort what really happened to fit their own agenda
