It’s really sad to see how many news outlets reported on a short clip that didn’t at all represent what actually happened, and are now having to recant, retract, and update their stories to accurately represent the truth of the sitauation.

And now in spite of a clearer picture being painted, many people are still holding onto their beliefs that “we don’t really know what happened” or “they may have said something” when there’s no evidence of any of it.

However there is clear evidence of four adult males hurling racist insults at kids that is going mostly unreported. It appears people’s outrage is misdirected and very closely aligned with their political leanings. People just see and hear what they want to hear, regardless of what actually happened. They’re willing to dismiss visual evidence just to try to further their political agenda.

The reporting and reaction to this situation has been simply awful and is a sad commentary of the state of the world right now.

A different video surfaced Sunday showing what happened before the encounter, when a radical group of protesters called Black Hebrew Israelites taunted the boys for more than an hour with racist and homophobic abuse.


Speaking Sunday night to CBSN's David Begnaud, Phillips said he inserted himself between the students and a small group of African American protesters, known as the black Hebrew Israelites, to diffuse the situation.

The point being these "educated" young Trump supporters thought a wall would keep out Native Americans.
The ability to suspend judgment and change your mind when warranted is a distinguishing feature of critical thought
– apparently not recognizable to those who don’t have the ability.

Several videos circulating twitter showing the catholic boys and some of their antics. One video shows 2 girls walking past a group of 7-8 of those boys and they start screaming at them, literally screaming. Another video shows a debate between a pro-life catholic kid and a pro-choice girl and the boy shouts “it’s not rape if she likes it”. Clearly none of us know the full story.

I dont think there was anything “Pro-life” about these kids.

What they were rallying for was Pre-Life. Let’s not confuse the two.

And because of this, they MUST have been in the wrong during the protest. Period. The black guys slinging racist and homophobic slurs at them were clearly in the right because they aren't white. The native guy who claims to be a Vietnam veteran is also being abused by the boys because he's not protesting abortion. This is how intersectionalism works. Facts don't matter. Science doesn't matter. Nothing matters but your skin colour and how many progressive ideas you hold. You got raped while wearing a MAGA hat? Well, you had it coming because of that hat. The rape was your fault.

Gee I wonder where these boys got their ideas that they are entitled to a say on a woman's decision on her own body to begin with?

Even with clear video evidence we still cant agree on what happened.

Everyone is so caught up in their own agenda and biases that there can be no compromise.

This has happened plenty of times in the past and inevitably leads to war.

From what I saw these boys were attacked.Being called racists and crackers(whatever that means)and being called products of incest.Damn ! These full grown men saw the MAGA hats and went ballistic.Even death threats ?
These are 16 year old boys people....get a grip.
While I'm ranting here,the ignorant reaction to the "doctored" video clip,isn't just a U.S. media phenomemon but even here locally.One radio personality in Kelowna just had to spout off about the video he saw on MSN.His favourite news source.He said "I saw what I saw and that's final".Yup...that's Bell media for ya.Way to go there lefty's.
I love listening to this stuff,first thing in the morning.Yelling at my radio is a great way to get the blood flowing before I head to work LOL

Agreed, unfortunately I think it may come to that. Thing is, one side feels genuine disgust (conservatives) while the other doesn't, which makes me think their ideology is based purely on selfish grounds, doing things that make them feel virtuous and good without even being able to perceive the negative consequences.. Why do I think that? Because leftists lack the normal disgust response! Check these links:
