U. Iowa Student Paper Claims MAGA Becoming Symbol of White Supremacy
“appeared to be a display of white supremacy in his smirking ignorance toward Native American Nathan Phillips”
It’s amazing that this false narrative is still being advanced so many days later.
Take a look at this:
Column: MAGA is becoming a symbol of white supremacy
The viral video showing a standoff between a Covington Catholic High School student and a Native American veteran shed light on the escalating visibility of racial issues and cultural insensitivities in President Trump’s America, ranging from the meaning of “Make America Great Again” hats to media coverage.
On Jan. 18, an initial video documenting the incident was released which portrayed the student, Nick Sandmann, in what appeared to be a display of white supremacy in his smirking ignorance toward Native American Nathan Phillips. Sandmann appeared to refuse to move from the spot in front of Phillips and maintained a sniggering character toward the traditional Native American song Phillips was playing on his drum.
The tune Phillips sang was from the American Indian Movement from the 1970s. AIM was a political movement that strove to create economic independence for Native people and strove to abolish police brutality, racism, and imperialism affecting Native peoples. That fact that this song was being mocked adds insult to injury in the controversy. Not only were the students mocking traditional Native dances and songs, but they were also mocking a resistance song that was written during a time of great political unrest. This song was meant to uplift Native people around the country and to have it mocked so publicly is hurtful — a fact that was overlooked by many media outlets.
A longer video was later released, showing Sandmann and his peers appearing to mock traditional dances of Native Americans, prompting Phillips to walk over to Sandmann. It’s this video that has caused public, white outrage, arguing Phillips approached Sandmann.

Ignorance? I bet he knew exactly what Philips was all about.
And a group of black Jewish whatever’s were also spewing out tons of hateful shit and no one even gives a rats ass … and instead focus on the kids. Phillips shoulda minded his own damn business instead of walking over to the kids and getting in this kids face while he banged on a drum.
And that’s not even the worst of it … the worst is how it’s being reported, how the kids have been treated and how the media and other groups are twisting it to suit their narrative and biases … bloody disgusting.
What do you mean “black Jewish whatever’s”? The Black Israelite movement are not Jewish by any stretch of the imagination, except in their own minds. They are not recognized as Jewish by any Jewish group. There are plenty of Black Jews, but those hate-filled delusional nutcases weren’t them.
What’s the difference between “Jewish” and “Hebrew” or “Israelite”? They all mean the same thing, and these hateful people aren’t any of them. But we have to call them something.
Leftists are disgusting. Nick Sandmann did ABSOLUTELY NOTHING WRONG.
