Alyssa Milano has inserted herself into the Catholic teen dustup in DC over the weekend at the March for Life rally. This time she smeared millions of Americans who support President Trump by equating them to the racist killers of the Ku Klux Klan.
“The red MAGA hat is the new white hood. Without white boys being able to empathize with other people, humanity will continue to destroy itself,” Alyssa Milano stated in the wake a viral video that allegedly shows a clash between several Covington Catholic High School students and a Native American activist at the March for Life in Washington, DC. Milano finished her statement saying, “first thoughts when I wake up.”
Once again we have a celebrity who responds in a knee-jerk fashion without checking out the facts of the situation. Milano is only one of a number of celebrities, including Kathy Griffin, calling for action against these students over twisted takes on the episode. They are now getting death threats and Griffin is calling for the boys to be doxxed, which would put them and their families in even more jeopardy.
The fact of the matter is that the boys did not surround and harass Nathan Phillips, an elder Native American Vietnam veteran. More videos have emerged that contradict Phillips’ account that Nick Sandmann and his peers were the aggressors. A video shows that Phillips approached the MAGA hat-wearing students and aggressively hammered his drum in their faces.
The red MAGA hat is the new white hood.

Breitbart reported on the incident:
“Phillips also told the Washington Post “he felt threatened by the teens and that they swarmed around him.” But the full video makes it clear he had approached the students, who were already there, rather than the other way around.”
Apologies are now pouring in but it’s a little late for that development. The media, liberal, and conservative sites ran with the story without checking to see if it was accurate. The boys’ school has also reprimanded them over the encounter. Adding insult to injury, it took about ten seconds to find out that this isn’t the first time Phillips has done this. He did it back in 2015 with college students as well.
We now have a 2 hour raw recording of the MAGA kids incident.
We can see
No chanting "build the wall" as far as I saw
Native group approaches about an hour after the kids were already there

Liberal vultures wasted no time in trying to tear these boys apart:
“The mayor of Covington, Kentucky, the school, and the Catholic diocese condemned the students’ alleged behavior based on the viral video and media reports. The school and the diocese also announced that the students involved faced expulsion. Hollywood celebrities called for the students — all of whom are minors — to be “doxxed” (that is, to have their personal information released online) or even punched.”
Most egregious is more than 24 hours after CNN and other media outlets reported on this and used a doctored version of the encounter, they are still standing by their faux story. “NBC stuck with fake news about Catholic teenagers viciously harassing a Native American activist,” News Busters reported.

Milano somehow managed to blame “white boys” for all the problems plaguing “humanity.” Talk about racism and identity politics. She should stick to acting instead of activism.
Phillips told The Washington Post that he was being “blocked” and harassed by the boys. “It was getting ugly, and I was thinking: ‘I’ve got to find myself an exit out of this situation and finish my song at the Lincoln Memorial,'” Phillips claimed. “I started going that way, and that guy in the hat stood in my way, and we were at an impasse. He just blocked my way and wouldn’t allow me to retreat.”
That’s probably all Milano read on it before popping off. WaPo and Phillips are both lying. There is simply no excuse for tying Trump to this and comparing the MAGA hat to the ‘white hood’. Others are comparing those that wear the red hat to those who crucified Jesus if you can believe it.
One boy released a statement saying the group was waiting for a bus and doing some cheers when this happened:
“We initially thought this was a cultural display since he was beating along to our cheers so we clapped to the beat. He came to stand in fron of one of my classmates who stood where he was, smiling and enjoying the experience.
“… we did not partake in any physical or verbal abuse, did not chant “build the wall” or mock or anything of the like, and did not seek to incite violence. After that initial occurrence, we were then verbally assaulted by four or five African-American men who called us “faggots” and berated one of our African American friends for being friends with us.”
Shame on Milano for putting this out to her fans and endangering these boys and their families when this is clearly not something they did but instead was done to them. No thought went into her statement at all except how she could be the center of attention in this mess.

An entire generation of young white boys and men are being radicalized by Trump in front of our very eyes.
Impeachment or no impeachment, defeat in 2020 or no defeat in 2020, I suspect it’s too late to put this particular #MAGA genie back in the bigoted bottle.
