The students of Covington Catholic High School are facing expulsion and need our help.

On January 19, a now-infamous video took the internet by storm, depicting a gaggle of students from Covington Catholic High School looking on as an elderly Native American man played the drum in front of them. The boys, as they looked on, appeared enamored. However, when the video of this event hit the internet, their looks of enamor were soon mischaracterized. Scores of public figures flocked to social media, decrying the students supposed bad behavior, labeling them racists, bigots, and white supremacists. Many even called for their expulsion from Covington Catholic High School. 

Early Sunday morning, the Diocese of Covington and Covington Catholic High School released a statement: 

We condemn the actions of the Covington Catholic High School students towards Nathan Phillips specifically, and Native Americans in general, Jan. 18, after the March for Life, in Washington, D.C. We extend our deepest apologies to Mr. Phillips. This behavior 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. We know this incident also has tainted the entire witness of the March for Life and express our most sincere apologies to all those who attended the March and all those who support the pro-life movement.

However, as this episode has played out, new videos have emerged, directly in conflict with the narrative of the mainstream media. It was not the students from Covington who approached the Native American. It was the Native American who approached the students from Covington. It was not the students from Covington who chanted "Build The Wall". It was, however, one of the Native Americans who told the students from Covington to "go back to Europe". It was not the students from Covington who instigated this fiasco. It was Native American activist, Nathan Phillips. 

The #BoysOfCovington need our help.
