The mother of a boy filmed harassing a Native American man along with his friends at a rally in Washington DC has blamed “black Muslims” for the confrontation, without providing any evidence for the claim.

The teenager was among a group of students wearing Make America Great Again (Maga) hats who were criticised for taunting the musician Nathan Phillips, surrounding him and jeering and chanting “build the wall, build the wall”.

The article goes on to state the following:

In an email to the news website, she wrote: “Did you hear the names of the people were calling these boys? It was shameful. Did you witness the black Muslims yelling profanities and video taping to get something to further your narrative of hatred??

“Did you know that this ‘man’ came up to this one boy and drummed in his face?”

this is our reality. 2019. a swarm of young, unattended Trump supporters gathered to cause a scene, disrespect our cultures, and put fear into us. i was pushed and laughed at by teenage boys who grew up to believe their lives are more important than ours. they shouted things like “Gone in 2020” and mocked us. i am still in shock. i don’t know what to say other than that i’m sad and deeply shaken. this is our reality. 2019. . . . . . . EDIT: i do not intend to discount your fear, anger, and upset, but please keep in mind these boys are of high school age. i am tired, i am upset, and i am overwhelmed, but all i wish is for these boys to be reprimanded by their schools, parents, and friends. i posted this with the intention to spread the reality of being indigenous in 2019. we did not meet these boys with violence for a reason. mvto for the support.

    They they need to show the video before hand. These kids were waiting on their bus to pick them up, they were approached. These grown men used racism terms, he walked up & started to beat the drum. Show the entire truth! Where these grown man (with cameras following them) harassed them. These are good kids! And I’ll defend them the entire way. If I could upload the “before” video showing what these men did before hand and then cried victim… I would! Good kids! Good school! My home town! Just wish they would show & tell the full truth because these boys were called horrible horrible names & were spoken to terribly.

    Form an opinion after ‘all’ the facts are known.It may be a good or bad opinion to some, but it’s yours to keep. Just remember to use common sense more often. Thank you, Terrence.

    More fake news focusing on MAGA hats and turning around what really happened. The video is out there. Judge for yourselves. Some kids were loud but to destroy them and put them in danger by the crazy left is wrong. This was a true set up. The video proves that
