Styx on those evil, evil Covington High School kids

This video got flagged and removed by YouTube, so I'm embedding the same video from Styx's BitChute channel (he maintains multiple platforms for just such occasions). Watch the vid and decide whether Styx said anything racist or otherwise bigoted. This is just more evidence that YouTube and other platforms for self-expression all follow a particular agenda.

Meanwhile, here's Styx on YouTube, talking about the de-platforming of his video:

UPDATE: here's Styx on BitChute, discussing his de-platforming. This video was itself de-platformed from YouTube by the same censorious cunts who suppressed his previous video.

As for the incident in question, in which some Catholic high-school youths purportedly harassed an aging Native American who is also a military veteran, it's probably going to turn out, as is always the case when fake news is involved, that the original story was only that: a story and not the truth. People reviewing the video in question aren't seeing the antagonism and bigotry supposedly on display against the celebrated veteran.

From here:

Last night before bed, having only seen those shorter videos, I retweeted a condemnation of these boys. Now I regret that, having seen the whole video, and observing how left-wing activists — some of them Christian — are seizing on this ugly incident to discredit the March For Life, a massive annual event protesting the murder of the unborn.

To be clear, it is POSSIBLE that these boys really did make fun of this old Native American man. If that’s what happened, they should apologize.

I don’t think this is what happened at all, though. These boys were already chanting their high school chants. Nathan Phillips confronted them. They don’t appear to understand what point he was making with his own chanting and drum-beating. And now they are held up to the contempt of the country for something they appear not to have done at all. And, the news accounts conveniently ignore the provocative, racist, foul-mouthed attacks on the boys by one of Phillips’s Native American companions.

From what I can tell from over here, what is being reported about the Covington Catholic boys appears to be almost 100 percent Fake News. I started out ready to condemn those boys, but after watching more videos of the entire incident, I changed my mind. I am willing to revise this opinion if more facts come forward, and I welcome your e-mailing them to me.

More here, where the theory is propounded that this attack on Catholicism is preparation for the upcoming Supreme Court battle to replace Ruth Bader Ginsburg with Amy Coney Barrett, who is decidedly Catholic. The left needs Catholicism to be a strike against Barrett, just as the right tried to make John F. Kennedy's Catholic faith into a liability. (How'd that turn out?)

The problem, for the left, is that American Catholics, while coming in all political flavors, have a very large, liberal-leaning voting bloc. Attacking Catholicism is likely to disenchant Catholics who might otherwise be for the liberal/Democrat cause. The left should tread lightly.

Even more here: The Media Wildly Mischaracterized That Video of Covington Catholic Students Confronting a Native American Veteran. The veteran, Nathan Phillips, may have actually been part of the problem: he interposed himself between a group of "Black Hebrew Israelites"—who were shouting racial and sexual slurs and epithets—and a group of quiet, utterly nonviolent white students, convinced that the white students were making ready to attack the black students, whom Phillips automatically assumed to be the victims.
