Minnesota Muslim Congresswoman Ilhan Omar went on the attack on Wednesday accusing the Covington Catholic kids of “taunting” a group of radical black activists despite widespread reporting of the truth that it was the black group that did the taunting.
In a tweet she soon deleted, Omar smeared the Catholic kids for “taunting five black men.” She then said the kids “surrounded” a group of Native Americans and “led racist chants.”
These are outright lies and the video 100 percent proves Omar to be lying.
The videos of the incident all show the catholic boys standing waiting for their bus when they are verbally accosted by a group of radical black activists who call themselves the “Black Israelites.” This group is a well-known racist group that even the Southern Poverty Law Center calls a hate group.
The video also shows that the Catholic kids do not change their position during the taunts thrown at them by the black activists. Neither do they move when the Native Americans, led by racist activist Nathan Phillips, wades into the mix and begin banging their drums inches from the boys’ faces.
In truth, the kids were simply standing their ground when they were accosted first by the black group and then by Phillips and his Natives. The kids NEVER “surrounded” anyone nor did they “taunt” anyone.
Omar’s lie-filled tweet is so blatant that attorney Robert Barns noted that the Congresswoman’s tweet is “libel” and he threatened to sue.
Further reports have debunked every part of Omar’s tweet. Indeed, early reports said that the Catholic kids yelled “build the wall” at the black and Native activists. This has been 100 percent debunked. Not a single vide shows anyone yelling “build the wall.”
Omar eventually deleted the tweet but has not apologized for her lies.
