Last month, a video of Covington Catholic High School students and a group of Native Americans went viral. After only watching a short part of the video, the media, political figures and celebrities took to twitter to spread lies about the students, threaten them and some even called for the students to be doxxed. They put out false information and accused the students of being racists, yelling racist chants and getting in an elderly Native American man’s face. But in reality, none of this happened. As I wrote in a previous article, the students were the ones being harassed and threatened by a group of black Hebrew Israelites. While the students were being harassed by the black men, the group of Native Americans approached the students and joined in on the harassment..
After 100’s if not 1000’s of tweets with misinformation about the incident were tweeted, the students were doxxed.
After the full video went viral, some of the people who spread misinformation about the students apologized. But not Congresswoman Ilhan Omar. Omar tweeted lies about the students but refuses to apologize. Jason Calvi asked Omar if she felt she owed the boys an apology. Hear her response below:
