Most disgusting thing I’ve ever seen. Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you the next generation of white male “Christian” Republicans. This happened after I left the #IndigenousPeoplesMarch at Lincoln Memorial yesterday. Native elder surrounded and jeered by #MarchForLife group.
This group took a picture at top of steps earlier. One boy clearly has a #MarchForLife T-shirt on. From this angle it is clearer what’s happening. The instigator is challenging the Native elder for the space. The group cheers over elder’s song. #IPMDC19

Dear .@supmikeclines, Students from Covington Catholic High School made a complete and utter mockery of Christain faith in DC yesterday. They carried a spirit of empire, conquest and colonization—not the spirit of brown, indigenous, colonized Jesus. 1/ #IPMDC19
Some, .@supmikeclines, may look at these videos of White boys using their bodies to challenge a Native American elder for space and a white male crowd, many wearing #CovingtonCatholicHigh jackets, jeering over the Elder’s song and, say “Boys will be boys.” 2/ #IPMDC19
This, @supmikeclines, was not a simple mistake. Jesus said we will know a tree by its fruit. The fruit of your tree has been seen by the world. It-is-rotten-to-the-core. It is NOT of Jesus. 3/ #IPMDC19
So, .@supmikeclines, supervisors must be fired. Students in video must bare consequences. But more than that, your students attempted to steal the dignity of a Native American elder. They must face him, and ask him what can be done to make things well between them. 4/4 #IPMDC19
Here DIRECTLY from Elder Nathan Phillips (Omaha), a US Veteran, about the abuse he absorbed.
