kudos to Jamie Lee Curtis

She admits she rushed to judgement and apologizes for her remarks against the Covington kids. She suggest the president invites both the kid and drummer to meet at the White house. That would be a good move to end the disinformation which is leading to way too many threats of violence towards the kids, their parents and the school.

Re: kudos to Jamie Lee Curtis

I agree that a White House visit would be a great thing, however that Indian drummer doesn`t strike me as the "I`m sorry" type.  He lied, has a history of trouble making and lying about it.  He probably wouldn`t meet Trump if offered unless it was to raise a stink and extend his 15 minutes of fame. But, maybe that`s exactly what the country needs to see.

Trump should look up his service record and heap praise on him for it. Smiley Wink

After having read the news articles and seen the videos, have come to the conclusion that there are many who owe the students a huge apology.  Kids will be kids, YET there is more to the story.  The immediate media stories were that Phillips found himself surrounded by the students, the truth is that he walked into the group of students, they did not surround him.  So, right off the bat, FAKE NEWS.  My own opinion is that the Indian group received minimal notice during whatever ho-hum demonstration they had, reporters were obviously present, and they had just witnessed the students' response to being harassed by the small group of black guys (another ho-hum demonstration group to whom nobody paid attention), a situation that was already diffused.   The black guys created a scene on purpose, and were out of line in doing so, yet no harm done.  Phillips (a known activist) purposely walked into the group of students, beating his drum, to create a reportable moment, with reporters in tow, at his own behest and/or quite possibly at the urging of one or more reporters looking for a photo-op and story.  Phillips should have left the students alone, as other observing adults obviously did, and left the students to be managed by their chaperones.  Regardless of what Phillips was saying to the contrary, both the black group and the Indian group were the instigators, who were trying purposefully to get reactions from the student group.  AND, where were the student chaperones while all this was happening?

One has to ask if the situation would have been any different if the student group was not religiously affiliated, did the black guys or Indian group know they were?  What if the students were wearing ***** hats and wearing Hillary or Obama T-shirts?  Would either antagonizing group have approached them, would the reporting have been the same?

Patricia weighs in with some excellent points about how this could follow the kids and school for years to come while those who perpetrated the fraud will never face any consequences at all. It has always been the progressive who claim they are the protector of children and conservatives who have no concern.

Absolutely, those reporters who purposely misrepresented the facts should receive the consequences commensurate with their actions.  The world needs to know who they are and who they work for, and why they are still employed after trampling on the rights and reputations of so many others.
