The attacks on Trump supporters are ever-increasing. While true heroes such as triple-amputee veteran Brian Kolfage work to raise money for Americans to build the border wall for our national security concerns, the big, bad left spends their time threatening children and their families with violence and death. Why? Because it fits a political narrative.
Take a look at the video below where Brian asks: “Where was the media when this elderly @realDonaldTrump Supporter was ACTUALLY attacked by liberals. NEVER TRUST The left wing media, NEVER! DONATE 2 build border wall: http://gofundme.com/thetrumpwall.” You’ll see how at least two brainwashed teens harass an elderly Trump supporter and show him no respect. I don’t remember seeing that in the news, do you? Kolfage wants to know where the MSM was on that one… good question.

The media and the left are quick to attack the teens from Covington Catholic High School in Kentucky. They didn’t even bother checking out the facts before they labeled them racists and fascists.
“Over the weekend a story blew up concerning boys from Covington Catholic High School in Kentucky. While in DC for the March for Life rally, they had an encounter with Nathan Phillips, an elder Native American and Vietnam veteran. A deceptive video made it appear as though the boys surrounded Phillips and were mocking and harassing him. The opposite was true.
“Phillips aggressively approached the boys banging a drum in their faces. The boys were also harassed by another activist group there. Leftist media outlets ran with the story… so did left and right-sided sites. After the threat of lawsuits arose when other videos made it clear the boys were innocent, many backed off. Not all of them, however, and those that did were half-hearted corrections.

“The boy who the left is attacking is Covington Catholic High School junior Nick Sandmann. He issued a long, detailed statement on the incident in an effort to correct the record and clear his family’s name. “I am providing this factual account of what happened on Friday afternoon at the Lincoln Memorial to correct misinformation and outright lies being spread about my family and me,” Sandmann begins. Unfortunately, a lot of damage was already done here.
“Sandmann relates that before Phillips showed up, he “noticed four African American protestors who were also on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial. I am not sure what they were protesting, and I did not interact with them. I did hear them direct derogatory insults at our school group.” Those were derogatory racial slurs. The protesters called Sandmann and his fellow classmates “‘racists,’ ‘bigots,’ ‘white crackers,’ ‘fa**ots,’ and ‘incest kids’. A number of the students were wearing MAGA hats.
“They also taunted an African American student from my school by telling him that we would ‘harvest his organs,'” said Sandmann. “I have no idea what that insult means, but it was startling to hear.”
“In retaliation, the boys were given permission to shout school spirit chants. Sandmann made it clear: “At no time did I hear any student chant anything other than the school spirit chants. I did not witness or hear any students chant ‘build that wall’ or anything hateful or racist at any time. Assertions to the contrary are simply false. Our chants were loud because we wanted to drown out the hateful comments that were being shouted at us by the protestors.”
“After a few minutes of chanting, the Native American protestors, who I hadn’t previously noticed, approached our group. The Native American protestors had drums and were accompanied by at least one person with a camera,” Sandmann stated. “The protestor everyone has seen in the video began playing his drum as he waded into the crowd, which parted for him. I did not see anyone try to block his path. He locked eyes with me and approached me, coming within inches of my face. He played his drum the entire time he was in my face.”
“I never interacted with this protestor,” Sandmann said. “I did not speak to him. I did not make any hand gestures or other aggressive moves.”
“If anything, Phillips confused these boys. “I believed that by remaining motionless and calm, I was helping to diffuse the situation,” he says. “I said a silent prayer that the situation would not get out of hand.”
“The engagement ended when one of our teachers told me the busses had arrived and it was time to go. I obeyed my teacher and simply walked to the busses. At that moment, I thought I had diffused the situation by remaining calm, and I was thankful nothing physical had occurred,” he adds.”
You don’t see any outrage from the left when a Trump supporter is mocked, harassed, or threatened. They are just fine with whatever happens to them even if they are children or the elderly. But even give the appearance of attacking a leftist and it’s “off with their heads!” Talk about a double standard and hypocrisy.
Lawsuits are coming over the confrontation in DC and they should. Leftists are still threatening these boys and their families even though there is a ton of evidence that it did not go down the way they claim it did.
Here’s a thought… why don’t Americans do something pro-active for a change? You can start by helping Brian Kolfage build the wall.
