As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News offers the following information published by FOXNEWS.COM:
Freshman Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., is facing a social media backlash for going after Covington Catholic students anew Tuesday night, even after many in the media acknowledged initially misreporting on their widely viewed confrontation with a Native-American elder in Washington last week.
Media figures initially seized on the viral confrontation between the group of students and Native-American elder Nathan Phillips. The initial clip appeared to show students antagonizing him, but additional video then emerged offering context, including that Phillips approached them amid a confrontation between the students and Black Hebrew Israelite protesters. The students pushed back on the initial criticism, and many of those critics have since retracted their statements — but others have revived the criticism.
The article goes on to state the following:
Omar weighed in on the subject, responding to President Trump’s tweet defending Covington student Nick Sandmann and his peers — by claiming they were taunting the black protesters despite accounts to the contrary and citing a videotaped comment about rape, though it’s unclear whether it was one of the Covington students who said it.
-The boys were protesting a woman’s right to choose & yelled “it’s not rape if you enjoy it”
-They were taunting 5 Black men before they surrounded Phillips and led racist chants
-Sandmann’s family hired a right wing PR firm to write his non-apology 🤦🏽♀️https://t.co/fG8AUCuDTr https://t.co/bOA6yFsIjW

You are a shameless liar!
Not only did the boys not taunt the “5 black men,” but it was actually the 5 members of the Black Hebrew Israelites who taunted not only the boys, but other black men AND women who tried to interject & stop their racial slurs against Native Americans! pic.twitter.com/OqDqxqGr0I

The militant black supremacist lunatics who call themselves the Black Hebrew Israelites are a well known hate group, FYI. I’m sure you have a lot in common with them.

You’re a liar.
Hebrew Israelites to students:
– “child-molesting f*ggots”
– “dirty a** crackers”
– “dusty a** crackers
– “racist bastards” (same people calling students dirty crackers 🤔)
– Oh, and they called other black people ‘n***ers’
Honestly, how are you this shameless?

Hi @IlhanMN here’s a fact-check:
• The 1 boy who said that was not with the Covington Catholic group
• The 5 Black men called the boys f*ggots, crackers, racially taunted a Black boy, the boys didn’t retaliate
• Show us one racist chant on video from the boys, there isn’t one

The “5 Black men” were members of the Black Israelites hate group & they were hurling vile bigoted insults at the kids from Covington Catholic High School — calling them “cracker” “faggot” “pedophile” & even calling the black students “n-ggers.” Are you seriously defending this? https://t.co/VoBmdxnd3J

I don’t know someone could be this wrong about something.

How did you miss the videos of the Black Israelites calling people n—–s, f—–s, and saying that white people harvest people’s organs like in “Get Out”
Only you would quadruple down after all of this has been debunked
Your voters are real dopes

Your first two bullets are lies, and even if they weren’t this is your criteria making it ok to send children and mothers death threats?🤦♂️
In America we don’t view death threats as an acceptable norm.
