Nathan Phillips Continues to Play Victim in NBC Interview

Nathan Phillips Continues to Play Victim in NBC Interview

This man is so full of himself.

A day after she interviewed Nick Sandmann, NBC’s Savannah Guthrie interviewed Nathan Phillips.

Many considered the interview “too soft” compared to the one with Sandmann. They may have a point as Guthrie allowed Phillips to continue to play victim despite evidence coming out that he confronted the Covington Catholic students at the Lincoln Memorial.

From The Washington Examiner:

Phillips told NBC Thursday morning that he thought Sandmann’s responses in the interview were “coached,” but said he forgives Sandmann for those responses.

“Coached, and written up for him, insincerity, lack of responsibility. Those are the words I came up with, and then I went to go pray about it and woke up with this forgiving heart,” he said. “So I forgive him.”

“I was upset that I was made to sit down and watch it [the interview]. I read his statement,” Phillips said when asked what he thought about Sandmann’s comments. “I got into the first 30 seconds 40 seconds of it [the interview] and I was like, ‘that’s all I need to hear.’”

Phillips also said he forgives all the students.

“Even though I’m angry, I have that forgiveness in my heart for those students,” he said.

Guthrie didn’t challenge Phillips as he continued to lie about the incident. He still claims that the students “surrounded me and the folks that were there with me” even though video evidence shows that Phillips and his friends confronted the Covington students.

Guthrie also brought up Phillips’ military service that so many have rightfully criticized:

“Some have said you were a Vietnam veteran. I don’t believe you have said that. What exactly is the nature of your service?”

Um…how do I internet? Phillips has proclaimed time after time that he is a Vietnam veteran. Guthrie asked this question this morning despite this video going viral on social media:

*UPDATE AT 8:12PM: The transcript I had originally was wrong. Phillips identified himself as a Vietnam times veteran. CNN identified him as a Vietnam veteran.

Stolen valor, media enabling, faux outrage, Twitter threats. Rinse and repeat. When will this maggot’s 15 minutes of fame be over? So very tiresome, and so very indicative of the rot in our culture.

Try to imagine for one second what the msm would do to this man if he had been caught wearing a MAGA hat! It would not matter if he had been a Vietnam combat vet with the MOH around his neck!

Lieawatha’s claim to heritage on display.

Let them keep digging that hole in which they’re standing. Just more evidence for the pending lawsuit.

One can only hope that for once the courts will rake the msm over the coals.I won’t hold my breath after the Zimmerman fiasco with the doctored police call.

Puuuurrrr, puuuuurrr provocateur caught in his numerous lies.

Phillips also said this in his CNN interview after the incident at the Lincoln Memorial: […] And I’m a Vietnam veteran and I know that mentality of “There’s enough of us. We can do this.” (Emphasis added.)

Except he didn’t say that. As the article you linked to acknowledges, the transcript is wrong. He said “I’m a Vietnam times veteran”. Although there’s no publicly available recording of the second instance in the same transcript, it stands to reason that it is also wrong.

    Actually he does call himself a Vietnam vet in both of the videos linked on this post.

    Milhouse did you watch the videos? You are 100% wrong. He has made that claim. Stop trying to defend indefensible people.

      Milhouse in reply to rdm. | January 24, 2019 at 1:27 pm

      Did you watch the video of this alleged claim? He clearly said “Vietnam times veteran” and the transcript misquoted him. The linked article explicitly acknowledges that, so how can you deny it?

      RedEchos in reply to rdm. | January 24, 2019 at 1:35 pm

      Milhouse is correct about the CNN transcript though. That interview, posted in an earlier post, shows the ‘little drummer boy’ was very careful about what he said to CNN in that interview.

      He’s going to have to fire up the b.s. machine and say his videos above were altered, especially since we now now he had a general, not honorable, discharge and he was never “in theater”

    txvet2 in reply to Milhouse. | January 24, 2019 at 7:19 pm

    He said specifically: “I got honorable discharge and one of the boxes shows peacetime or, what my box says is that I was **in theater**.”

    “In theater” indicates he was somewhere in SEA, not necessarily “in country” in Vietnam/Cambodia/Laos. As far as anything I’ve heard, he never left the states, unless maybe he took a trip or two to Mexico while he was AWOL.

      DaveGinOly in reply to txvet2. | January 25, 2019 at 12:54 am

      He has also said, “I don’t talk much about my Vietnam times,” strongly implying that he has “Vietnam times” to talk about and that he was there.

      I am a Vietnam era veteran and the reason I don’t “talk much” about my “Vietnam times” is because I was not there.

      Milhouse in reply to txvet2. | January 25, 2019 at 9:47 am

      What lies he has told at other times is irrelevant. The point is that in this instance he told the truth, so it’s wrong to accuse him of a lie he did not tell.

        txvet2 in reply to Milhouse. | January 25, 2019 at 11:06 am

        The point is he knows that people have revealed the fact that he’s been lying and has changed his tune to only imply that he was “in theater”. All that proves is that he’s as devious as he is dishonest.

The main problem is his continuing to side and sympathize with the Black Hebrews who were harassing the boys, and his insistence that the boys were aggressors, about to beat up those poor innocent black people, just because they were exercising their first amendment rights. Of course the boys were exercising the very same rights, and in a far more innocent manner; the only possible reason to call them aggressors and the Black Hebrews “prey” is race. That Phillips doesn’t seem to see that says everything we need to know about him.

Just another graduate of the Joseph Goebbels School of Journalism appearing on American Pravda.

The MSM fact checks, not only the President’s remarks, but the remarks of every person who speaks, who is not a member of the liberal privileged class. Yet, they refuse to do it to someone who advances their agenda and narrative, no matter how obvious his misstatements are. Phillips [aka Standard] is free to say whatever he wants, on camera. However, the journalistic profession has an obligation to expose any misstatement, in accuracy and potential lie put forth by Philips.

    ronk in reply to Mac45. | January 24, 2019 at 3:05 pm

    they do if you call what they do fact checking, actually it’s pulling the “facts” out of your butt.

Hey, war hero. It’s called “a dentist”. Look into it.

    Jackie in reply to UJ. | January 24, 2019 at 12:22 pm

    Those teeth. He could go to the VA and have them fixed for free. If he was not Native American he would be called a race hustler, but in the scheme of racial politics he’s on top, so according to the MSM whatever he says is true and whatever someone wearing a MAGA hat is false. Doesn’t matter what you see with your own eyes.

      actually no. need to be 100% disabled with service connected disablity to get VA dental.
      I am 60% with pretty much destroyed knees, dental I have to handle on my own.

    I have never been a dentist. In this case, I might give it a try. Grab a pair of pliers, a couple of those ratcheting tie down straps, maybe a clean tire iron and git’r’dun!

Here’s an absolutely spot on video (with proof) refutation from a former SEAL. WARNING: language is very definitely SEALish.

Does thos loathsome lying sack of excrement have an actual job? I assume he is not a professional “drummer”.

Alternative headline: Nathan Phillips Continues to Direct This Week’s Media Narrative.

Nathan Phillips, (THE ELDER) is a disingenuous A-hole who has cast himself as…..THE HERO….!!!!
Yes, he was SOOOOOOOOOO brave……
Those apple cheeked hooligans had worked themselves into a fighting frenzy..!! The MAGA horde was on the verge of attacking the poor Hairy Bearded Ranters….!!!
But, Nathan Phillips, (THE ELDER) sensed the danger and with no regard for his own safety, grabbed his drum…strode bravely into the lions den…and tapped out a PARADIDDLE OF PEACE…!
And thusly…..THE DAY WAS SAVED…!!!!!

Holy Crapola this guy is full of it…..
Please…..let ME interview Mr Phillips (THE ELDER) on live TV !

Concur with dmacleo @ 12:55.

But Ms. Flanagan glosses over the horrible invective and vitriol hurled at the kids by big, strong, intimidating, militant, grown men. Their comments toward the kids were full of hate, homophobia, vulgarity, and profanity. In any other context, these Black Israelites would have been accused of bullying because that, in fact, is what they did.

But they got a pass from the media and a pass in this Atlantic article, no doubt because the kids were wearing MAGA hats. I would have been scared sh-tless had I encountered this kind of verbal violence at 16 or 17. In fact I would be scared sh-tless today.

Not exactly America’s finest hour. I feel for the kids, their families, their school, and their community. Tragic.

    Milhouse in reply to tiger66. | January 25, 2019 at 9:55 am

    But they got a pass from the media and a pass in this Atlantic article, no doubt because the kids were wearing MAGA hats.

    That too, but mainly because they were white and the people harassing them were black. If all the facts were the same but the colors were reversed there’s no doubt Phillips would have drummed in the white harassers’ faces instead, and the black Catholic kids would very likely have been reported as the victims they in fact were, despite their MAGA hats and pro-life views.

“Even though I’m angry, I have that forgiveness in my heart for those students,” he said.


What’s he angry about? That the kid he targeted for his provocation didn’t respond with the violence or insults he was hoping (and had his buddies filming) for?

Or is he just angry that so many of the kids had their own phone cameras, and were able to take videos of what really happened, and thereby harsh his “I’m a victim” narrative?

Is it time for journalists to sign off Twitter?

By Brian Stelter, CNN Business

I used to think the transparency of Twitter helped improve trust in media. I think that’s true around the edges. But I’m leaning toward the Silicon Valley exec’s view that the incessant tweeting undermines trust. “You guys are down in the mud with the bots and the bad faith actors,” the tech exec said.

That’s definitely true. The more time someone spends on Twitter, the more likely their view of the world is distorted by all the shouting. And the more likely they start shouting too. Being on Twitter contributes to a sense that the thing being shouted about is hugely important and being discussed by THE WHOLE WORLD when in fact it’s being discussed solely by people who are Extremely Online. The Covington Catholic controversy is just the most recent example.

    RedEchos in reply to Neo. | January 24, 2019 at 2:42 pm

    “You guys are down in the mud because you ARE bad faith actors,” the tech exec should have said.

    Twitter hasn’t done this; Twitter has exposed this.

Wait a second…Why exactly was this activist/protester at the March for Life rally in the first place, with his drum at the ready, Because he is a dedicated supporter of the right to life?

    There was also an Indigenous Peoples Rally going on in the square and the small group of Black Hebrew Israelites were nearby.

    I don’t know if you’ve seen it or not, but there’s a 1 hour and 49 min video on Utube (shot by the BHI) that documents the whole debacle….I found the video highly entertaining in a bizarrely obnoxious kind of way…
    (But, I like weird stuff)

      I don’t think that is quite a complete answer. By a strange coincidence, this so-called indigenous people’s rally happened to be scheduled on the same day that, for 40 plus years, a right to life rally has also been held?

      Of course, maybe there is some significance to Jan. 18 in the native american activist movement? Or maybe they also wanted to mark the anniversary of Roe in a unique way, with drums?

        AJR, I did a little research…
        Fri Jan 18 was the first Ann. Indigenous People March. There was also a Right to Life march…and since there were Right to lifers, I’m sure the pro abortion folks were also in attendance for the requisite counter-protest…

        It seems like the I-digs and the R-lifers would be on the opposite ends of the lib-consertive scale, but I wouldn’t think the I-digs and the Roe-B’s have that much in common either.. But, Holy Crap…who knows now days..???

        I think Nathan Phillips, (THE ELDER) is an opportunist who has inserted himself into this mess and is going to stroke it for as long as possible….(he’s creating a brand)

      DaveGinOly in reply to tgrondo. | January 25, 2019 at 1:13 am

      Speaking of the BHI, they are on video trash-talking (with foul language) Nathan Phillips’ group. Yet CNN in their initial reporting refers to them (the BHI peeps) as “four African-American young men preaching about the Bible and oppression.”

      I didn’t know such language was necessary to preach the Bible.

      CNN has become a parody of itself.

        In Nathan Phillips (THE ELDER) first telling of, “The Greatest Story Ever Told” he said he was protecting “4 elderly African Americans” from the pack of teenage heathens…

        And yes, the BHI were certainly artists of profanity…
        Their juxtaposition of peckerwood and the n-word, along with the eloquent use of the f-word was quite unique…toss in a few homo-phobic slurs and you had a verbal profanity salad..!

    iconotastic in reply to AJR. | January 24, 2019 at 3:05 pm

    Because Phillips was in town to disrupt a Catholic service in Washington D.C. A day after Phillips harassed the students he and other misfits tried to disrupt a service at the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception.

    Milhouse in reply to AJR. | January 25, 2019 at 10:04 am

    Wait a second…Why exactly was this activist/protester at the March for Life rally in the first place, with his drum at the ready,

    He wasn’t. This didn’t happen at the march, it happened at the Lincoln Memorial after the march, while the kids were waiting for their bus to go home.

    There was an Indian rally that day (there are only 365 days in a year, and more than that many marches, rallies, and other events. It’s a big mall, and most of these events are not very big, so several of them can be going on at once without interfering with each other. He was there for that.

    The Black Hebrews were probably just there because they’re always there harassing people; that’s what they do.

    It was a coincidence that all three happened to be at the same time, and both other groups decided to harass the ofays.

Okay, I am sick and tired of hearing about 1) the Saudi Post “journalist” who learned not to upset the status quo in the Middle East, 2) Sandy the Socialist with nothing of intelligence to say, regardless of her university degree, 3) Ilham Omar, you’re in America now, when here, do as the Americans do, and 4), finally, Nathan Phillips. What a fraud, he went AWOL thrice and was discharged as a private. He repaired refrigerators. What a hero.

Stop talking and writing about them.

Glenn Beck sounding like a pre-breakdown Glenn Beck. Brings the high heat on this

Piss on this bum, and all bums like him, and all bums enabling him.

Stop watching CNN.

VetHusbandFather | January 24, 2019 at 7:06 pm

Aside from the flat out lies about being surrounded by the savage teen horde, and his outlandish claim that Nicholas Sandmann started the tomahawk chop, Mr. Phillips also claims that he saw a video on “the internets” of people chanting “Build the Wall.” I’ve literally watched hours of the incident and have not made out a single whisper of “Build the Wall.” Has anyone else found this video Mr. Phillips speaks of?

    I believe it was NBC who had to retract comments about that because even they couldn’t find any evidence of it being said.

    “Evidence” didn’t stop them from running with the hit piece first, though

    Why would it be wrong if they had chanted “Build the Wall”? How would that have been any sort of insult to either the Indians or the Black Hebrews?

Looks like a chronic/toxic alcoholic.

    murkyv in reply to NotKennedy. | January 24, 2019 at 8:34 pm

    Just saw an article on NTD (for what that’s worth), that he has a criminal history, including jail break, from his youth.

    Original and subsequent charges were mostly alcohol related.

*UPDATE AT 8:12PM: The transcript I had originally was wrong. Phillips identified himself as a Vietnam times veteran. CNN identified him as a Vietnam veteran.

Except there is video of him saying he’s a Vietnam vet.

“I’m a Vietnam vet. You know, I served in Marine Corps ’72 to ’76, you know. Uh, one of the — I got honorable discharge, and one of the boxes in there, it shows that it was peacetime or what my box says is that I was in theater. I don’t talk much about my Vietnam times,”

    Milhouse in reply to 4fun. | January 25, 2019 at 10:13 am

    Except there is video of him saying he’s a Vietnam vet.

    Um, that video is linked in the article. We’ve seen it already. That doesn’t change the fact that in the CNN interview he did not repeat this claim, and the CNN transcript falsely claimed he had.

      Obviously you didn’t click on the link. In that video he says he IS a Vietnam Vet. No times or era mentioned. Plus the link has other videos.
      Click and listen before you post once in a while.

Also in the link I put up, he has a “Warrior Medal of Honor” from the “Native American Nations of the United States of America”.
And lets call him what he isn’t, he’s not a “Native American”, he is stealing that also. He’s a Lakota Sioux.
American is a European term not an Indian term. There was no America for the Indians until the Europeans came along.

Philips is a victimization huckster who’s getting his 15 because the MSM loves their victim groups and hates white, Christian males and especially of the Republican variety. Not a word from any of those mokes about the only people acting like adults were a bunch of kids.

Around the campfire alongside the railroad tracks, he’s known by his tribal name “Flosses-With-Camels (Unfiltered).”
