The native activist served from 72 to 76, but never in Vietnam. WaPo had to issue another retraction...
Sure he did! He served with Senator Richard Blumenthal - D Connecticut. Blumenthal obtaining at least 5 deferments.
Let's keep this between you and I - you know how upset Carter will be!
Typically for MSM , but initially heard he said he was there to "honor" native American Vietnam veterans.
I'm as "native-American" as he is.
Service during that period would make him a "Vietnam Era" vet. Still counts as honorable service. Don't take the bait.
What is disturbing is his string of lies and changing stories, easily refuted by the evidence. While lionizing the guy, the media hasn't directly asked him about those.
#1: Said he was surrounded by the kids, when it was clear he wandered into the group.
#2 When that lie was blown up, he changed his story to went into the group to promote peace. Howver, he was followed by a cameraman, and members of his group shouted at the kids to "go back to Europe". This was only an attempt to provoke.
#3 Says the kids chanted "Build the wall" when that was not heard on video.
#4 Claimed he was "scared" by the kid, when his history shows he has pulled off exactly this scam before with other students as an attempt to cry victim and defame them.
#5 Claimed the kid "stared" at him, in a hostile manner. However, the video is more supportive of the kid's statement he was trying to act peaceful, and non-provocative while the "scared" Native American was banging a drum in his face.
#6 Said he had the right to be there because he had permit for the Native American demonstration, but reports are that the permit did not include the monument where the incident took place.
He used the "Vietnam vet" claim to fundraise. The press picked it up, unvetted. That's two strikes, one for him and another for the MSM.
Raising money to publish a story of his life? I'm sure that would make reading the funny papers intellectually uplifting by comparison-not that the money would ever really be used for that. Just another 2-bit grifter playing the race card, the "service to country" fable ala Ct senator Dick Blowsthemall, and all of the usual "boob bait" rhetorical manure. Wonder if he has ever had a real job or just picks on kids?
Drumming for dollars.
1. Not true. He walks up to the group but stops a good 10-15 feet away. The camera cuts away, and when it comes back he is in front of the group. As the video progresses, he’s surrounded. He didn’t “wander into the group.”
2. People from his group yelled go back to Europe. The victim kids? They were doing mock Indian chants and tomahock chops.
3. Unclear. We do know they were wearing their MAGA caps, and one of the doofuses ripped his shirt off and acting like a fool, leading chants. You really wanna put your money on kids in the group NOT chanting build the wall?
4. He didn’t seem scared, although but he was surrounded by a bunch of teens cackling and filming. The student group certainly didn’t look like victims.
5. You think the kid looked like he was simply smiling? Who got in the others’ face? Do you know? And why were the students buddies filming looking so euphoric? They seemed to be enjoying it.
No wonder you act so stupid.
Your blindness must have kept you behind at least five grades in school.
If you ever attended at all.
Seems to me there were douchebags on all sides.
Actually this has reached the point of diminishing returns for all parties .
It's clear from his history of provoking incidents like this - it was staged for the cameras.
Anyone in any way identifiable as "not progressive" must, from now on, make certain that their actions are filmed - in full. This is necessary now, since selective filming to fake "incidents" is now apparently the norm so the rebuttal footage is essential.
It's clear what would have happened had there not been other footage...
You think the kid looked like he was simply smiling? Who got in the others’ face? Do you know? And why were the students buddies filming looking so euphoric? They seemed to be enjoying it.
Of course they were. After an hour of being called N*s and F*s, what's not to enjoy? Just another leftie love-fest.
The rest of your points are absurd. I was going to refute them point for point, but it occurred to me it would be a waste of time.
Translation: I can’t refute them
They were laughing at the craven taunters the same way we laugh at you, mattzine. And the more lipstick you put on, the more we laugh.
The Guardian won't back off... still pushing the narrative.
The Indian has convictions! While he believes in nothing apparently, he does however have CRIMINAL CONVICTIONS.......... Gee, does it stretch credulity to think this schmuck is a bloody pissant liar, and the kids most likely told the truth? Especially in view of his going from this CF to a Catholic Church to create a problem there.
BTW, Savannah Guthrie, just go stuff yourself. Go sell your lefty horse shit to someone who may care. They will most likely be found in a facility for the mentally infirm. BTW, the kid handled YOU. Guess you may not be the first bimbo who tried to manipulate him.
Some guy called the Carr Show this afternoon and tore into the fubar Marine, and said he had been AWOL a number of times during his "heroic service". Sorta lends itself to the theory that if someone is an asshole on the first count the rest will likely follow suit. If this schmuck had half a brain he would leave things alone before some kid takes him seriously and puts him out of our and his misery. Obviously we would all be heartbroken.
"Retired Navy SEAL Don Shipley, who is known for his work on stolen valor, said he got a hold of Phillips’ military records, which showed that he was never deployed outside of the United States, and that his job was as a refrigerator mechanic.
The record also showed that he went Absent Without Leave (AWOL) three times, according to Shipley."
So much for his "Recon Ranger" BS. He was a refrigeration mechanic with 3 AWOLS as the guy on the Carr Show had said.
His military record apparently includes two stints AWOL, while assigned in the upper northwest - Idaho being one of his duty locations. Never got anywhere near Vietnam. He was a refrigeration tech, not a commando as he also claimed.
"Translation: I can’t refute them"
They've already been refuted, on this website and a cornucopia of others. Your description of events is wholly fictional. But you know this of course...
Plenty of MSM sites now saying they misquoted him, and that he only ever said he was a Vietnam-era vet. Here is a link to a video of this liar stating that he was actually in Vietnam. .
Here's the full quote, (9:45 mark):
"I'm a Vietnam vet, you know," Phillips said. "I served in the Marine Corps from '72 to '76. I got discharged May 5, 1976. I got honorable discharge and one of the boxes in there shows if you were peacetime or... what my box says that I was in theater. I don't talk much about my Vietnam times. I usually say 'I don't recollect. I don't recall,' you know, those years."
In the same video, at around the 23:45 mark, he states, "I got a Section 8 home because I'm a veteran, wartime veteran like that. Honorable, in theater, so I have Section 8 home."
"I got a Section 8 home because I'm a veteran, wartime veteran like that. Honorable, in theater, so I have Section 8 home."
The more I hear some of this schmucks interviews, the more I think he is a section 8-the military section 8 not low-income housing..........
Section 8 (military) - Wikipedia
Section 8 is a category of discharge from the United States military, used for a service member judged mentally unfit for service. Section 8 was also often given to homosexuals, bisexuals, cross-dressers and transgender people.
This has reached the point of diminishing returns.
Just what are we getting for it ?
Particularly when we have such a stellar piece of crap in Speaker of the House.
It also strikes me that actual Vietnam veterans were told not to wear their uniforms back to the states, since that could trigger anger and hatred in those who disagreed with the war. People felt perfectly justified in behaving with hate toward what they saw as a symbol of beliefs different than theirs. Here we are today, and we have the same thing happening - people who feel justified in their hateful behavior toward those who wear MAGA hats and anything else that symbolizes differing beliefs. It wasn't right then, and it's not right now.
Have you seen the mama boys in their new blue hats?
You know, AMG's LGBT crew, wearing hats that say "Make America Mediocre Again."
On the back of the hat is their logo....a thumb red and tooth marked from sucking.
"a thumb red and tooth marked from sucking."
Maybe a rememberance from a Kancho accident ?
Smell ya later!
