In the wake of another fake news week at the major media “reporters” are scrambling to cover their tracks. Nathan Phillips, the Native American ‘victim’ in the latest Liberal Narrative Machine Production of all Trump supporters are racist, is a liar on multiple counts.
Everything initially about the story was wrong. And that is the story. The “professionals” who demand special press exceptions for their speech made the reporting fit their bias minus any facts or effort to obtain them. The result is kids getting death threats and a Catholic Diocese getting bomb threats.
Rule by Mob
This is how third-world mob-rule looks. A propaganda media instigates street violence that does the work of the ruling class. It suppresses partisan opposition, the opportunity for debate, and free expression. Right down to the clothes (or in this case the hat) you wear. That is its job. CNN, MSNBC, and the rest are lined up and waiting to get that job done.
This episode included some white Catholic kids wearing MAGA hats who were targeted, not one but twice, by left-wing radicals. Opportunists milking the false narrative.
The initial result produced what has become common these days. Media knee-jerk wall-to-wall coverage. Support the narrative and call it news. But it took actual investigation or reporting by amateurs with help from not-so-left-wing media to reveal the truth. A problem the Democrats would love to constrain.
When this first broke Ed Naile made the very accurate assessment that Nathan Phillips could not possibly have served in Vietnam. A key feature to the reporting.
When it became clear he had not, the media began spinning what was only one of many lies in the search for cover.
Consider your cover blown. Video of Phillips (a liberal activist with a history of this sort of thing) claiming to be a Vietnam vet.
“I’m a Vietnam Vet. I served in Marine Corps 72 to 76. I got discharged May 5, 1976. I got honorable discharge and one of the boxes shows peacetime or, what my box says is that I was **in theater**. I don’t talk much about my Vietnam times.”
Because you didn’t have any. You were a Marine (thank you) but you were never there.
In reality, Phillips served from June 1972 to May 1976 in the Marine Corps Reserve, a service spokeswoman, Yvonne Carlock, said Wednesday. He did not deploy, and he left the service as a private after disciplinary issues. From October 1972 to February 1973, he was classified as an antitank missileman, a kind of infantryman, Carlock said. He then became a refrigerator technician for the majority of his service.
Kurt Schlichter has labeled Phillips the “Frigidairborne Ranger.”
