WaPo Nathan Phillips Not Vietnam Vet

In the newest twist in the fake news fiasco that led to the Covington Catholic teens being doxxed and receiving death threats, the Native man at the center of the controversy, Nathan Phillips, is not a Vietnam veteran.

The Washington Post, one of the first mainstream news publications to seize on the narrative of racist teenagers harassing an elderly veteran, published a correction to its story today, noting that Phillips is not a Vietnam veteran.

From The Washington Post:

Correction: Earlier versions of this story incorrectly said that Native American activist Nathan Phillips fought in the Vietnam War. Phillips served in the U.S. Marines from 1972 to 1976 but was never deployed to Vietnam.

Many began questioning the media’s reporting that Phillips served in Vietnam when his age, 64, became known. Assuming he enlisted at 17, Phillips would have had to be deployed to Vietnam in 1972, and the last Marines left Vietnam in 1971.

Phillips, who Big League Politics painstakingly exposed as a left-wing fundraiser and media darling who appeared in an anti-police music video and previously accused a different group of students of anti-Native racism, never specifically called himself a Vietnam veteran. Instead, perhaps seeing this revelation coming, Phillips carefully used the phrase “Vietnam times veteran”, a vague expression that seemingly means he served in the military during the Vietnam war.

While it seems this fact should have been easy to check, it did not stop the entire mainstream media from referring to Phillips as a Vietnam veteran.

Quick research reveals most mainstream media is still mistakenly referring to Phillips as a Vietnam veteran even after The Washington Post’s correction, with Inside Edition, CBS News, Rolling Stone, Yahoo! News, and Fox News all still describing him as such. Perhaps the worst is Vogue, which specifically refers to Phillips as a veteran “who served as an infantryman in the Vietnam War.”

The fake news narrative surrounding Phillips and the Covington Catholic teens continues to crumble, and the teens are being identified as the victim of a horrendous smear campaign. As Republicans seek to rectify the situation, the group of teens have now been invited to visit President Donald J. Trump at the White House.

OWNED: ‘The Federalist’ Employees Slam Never Trump Hack David Frum for Insinuation of Conservative Gender Bias

Frum is a disingenuous virtue signaler.

Disgraced former Bush speechwriter David Frum, who abandoned the GOP to become a Never Trumper and Democrat operative, made a complete idiot of himself on social media on Thursday.

Frum posted a bizarre conspiracy theory, naming people such as left-wing journalists Matt Taibbi and Glenn Greenwald, Fox News host Tucker Carlson, podcast host Joe Rogan, the writers at The Federalist, and Donald Trump Jr. as part of a new milieu centered around a mutual disdain for U.S. power, or something.

“Wanted: smart, non-polemical assessment of emergence of Tucker Carlson, Joe Rogan, Glenn Greenwald, Donald Trump Jr., Matt Taibbi, the Federalist group of writers etc. as a coherent and cohesive faction in American politics. They share more than just the same dislikes,” Frum wrote in a tweet.

He started a Twitter thread to justify selling out his party and his country while hurling accusations at various political enemies who he arbitrarily grouped together.

“Trump put racism, misogyny, cruelty, corruption, authoritarianism on a giant billboard and forced us all to look. Could we accept? Those who said No found themselves in tandem with others who said No,” Frum wrote.

“Trump pushed Never Trump Republicans into partnership with moderate Democrats – and prodded even formerly conservative minded people – to see power in ideas like Me Too and Black Lives Matter,” he added.

“And that’s what we’re seeing in this fusion of the pro-Trump right with factions of the far left. Both are mistrustful of US power as a force for good. Both recoil from “centrism.” And both have heard quite enough from women and minorities, thank you very much,” Frum concluded.

While Frum’s rant is obviously meritless drivel, he really stepped into it when he made a drive-by comment to virtue signal to his left-wing, anti-male “Resistance” followers.

Writers for The Federalist, the conservative media outlet that employs many female reporters, and other like-minded conservatives have spent the entire day dunking on Frum for his idiotic and humiliating comment.

Big League Politics has been hammering Frum for years as he has emerged as perhaps the most dishonest charlatan among the “Never Trump” defectors:

Former George W. Bush speechwriter David Frum, a face of the NeverTrump “Republican” establishment, lost the Munk debate in Toronto to Steve Bannon, populist-nationalist CEO of the President Trump 2016 campaign and original Trump White House chief strategist.

Frum is one of the few media-friendly so-called conservatives still clinging to newsprint in the age of Trump by throwing spitballs at the wildly successful Commander in Chief. (He also wrote a book on W. Bush entitled “The Right Man,” lest we forget).

Bannon fans were looking forward to the confrontation…

Perhaps during term two, President Donald Trump could have Frum arrested for his role in devising and selling the public on the Iraq War.
