Maga hat accuses the mother of boy black Muslims & # 39; because her son harasses the Indian man

The mother of a boy who was tortured by an Indian man during a demonstration in Washington DC and harassed his friends, accused black Muslims & # 39; of the confrontation, without providing evidence for the claim.

The teenager belonged to a group of students who wore Make America Great Again (Maga) hats, who were criticized for criticizing the musician Nathan Phillips, who surrounded him and cried and "built the wall, built the wall".

But his mother claimed that "black Muslims" had harassed Donald Trump supporters from the private, fully male Covington Catholic High School in Kentucky.

In an e-mail to the news website, heavy.com, she wrote: "Did you hear the names of the people who called these guys? It was a disgrace." You have witnessed the black Muslims who were shouting and crying for something to promote your story of hatred?

"Did you know that this & # 39; man & # 39; came to this one boy and drummed in his face? & # 39;

The meeting took place on Friday during an anti-abortion event March for Life in the capital.

Images of the confrontation with Mr. Phillips, a veteran of the Vietnam War and an elder of Nebraska's Omaha tribe, were shared online by the organizers of an indigenous peoples march which also took place on Friday.

Separate online shared video showed a group of black men standing near the scene of the confrontation, arguing with the Maga hat-carrying supporters of Trump. It is unclear to which religious group the men belonged, but they were told with passages from the Old Testament.

Amid claims online that Mr. Phillips himself had participated in the harassment of the boys, another video shows the moment he arrived at the scene of the confrontation. The 64-year-old can be seen as he places himself between the two groups, ending a few meters away from both, before the students approach him and begin to sing.

The intimidation of Mr. Phillips has in the meantime caused a deluge of indignation. Actress and activist Alyssa Milano tweeted that the images "brought me into tears", while actor Chris Evans said that the students' actions were "horrible" and "shameful".

Democratic Congressman Deb Haaland, a member of the Laguna Pueblo tribe in New Mexico, twittered that the students had shown "blatant hatred, disrespect and intolerance."

Ruth Buffalo, a North Dakota state lawmaker and member of the Mandan, Hidatsa and Arikara Nation tribe, said she was saddened to see students showing disrespect to an elder who is also a military veteran.

“The behaviour shown in that video is just a snapshot of what indigenous people have faced and are continuing to face,” said Ms Buffalo.

Both the Catholic high school and the Diocese of Covington have apologised and condemned the actions of the students.

“We extend our deepest apologies to Mr Phillips. This behaviour is opposed to the church’s teachings on the dignity and respect of the human person.

“The matter is being investigated and we will take appropriate action, up to and including expulsion,” the statement said.

Covington Catholic High School has since closed its Facebook page.

“When I was there singing, I heard them saying, ‘Build that wall, build that wall,’” Mr Phillips said, as he wiped away tears in a video later posted on Instagram. “This is indigenous lands. We’re not supposed to have walls here. We never did.”
