The fake news media is always on the hunt for any opportunity to attack Donald Trump and his supporters as racists.
They believed they struck gold when a viral video of Catholic students supposedly mocking an 85 year-old Indian protester.
But what happened next will make you sick.
Celebrities and journalists lined up to heap scorn upon a group of Kentucky students from Covington Catholic that attended the March for Life.
A video rocketed around social media showing a group of boys chanting – many of whom were wearing Trump hats – and surrounding 85 year-old professional leftist Nathan Phillips as he banged an Indian drum inches from one of the boy’s faces.
The left rushed to paint the picture of rich, racist, privileged white Trump supporters singling out a discriminated against minority for persecution.
Every single one of these kids was once, pretty recently, a baby who didn’t know anything about anything in the world they were entering. This is the world given to them. (Also, I want to punch all of them. They really need to be punched.) https://t.co/UkZVpCGbru

But the video was deceptively clipped to frame the boys.
The truth was a group of black nationalists harassed the students with vulgar slurs.
Phillips seized on that moment to wade into the group and get in the face of one of the boys with his drum.
None of the students chanted “build the wall” or anything derogatory.
The boys said they broke out into school chants to drown out the racist taunts from the black militants.
If anything, Phillips was an experienced activist who critics believe thought he could create a viral moment.
He was right.
Within 24 hours the boys were convicted of being the heirs to Bull Connor.
But the media was forced to backtrack when word leaked out that some of the students planned to sue.
Fake news outlets scrambled to present the full story and exonerate the boys.
All the apologies could not paper over the fact that this story revealed the true nature of the media and what they really think about Trump supporters.
