Anatomy of a Narrative

Yesterday (unexpectedly!), Twitter exploded into paroxysms of rage. We were presented with a video (below), that showed a group of white teenagers in MAGA hats who, it's reported, surrounded a native American Vietnam vet (suddenly the left cares about vets) and mocked him (That's from WaPo, but I can't link it because of their paywall). The NYT called the kids a “mob” (Story), while USA Today screamed about “Blatant racism. They all talked about the smug white kids getting in the face of the poor, peaceful native American who was innocently taking part in the Indigenous Peoples March.

So let's unpack this.

Here is the video that was initially widely shared on social media:


I'll admit, when I initially saw just this video, I wondered “Gee, why are they harassing that man? That seems rude and way out of line”. Remember, it was presented as these kids “surrounding” and “taunting” the man. Twitter agreed. Left wing Twitter was in free-fall, melting down about “racism” and “bigotry” and exploding, as I said above, into paroxysms of rage. There were demands that these kids be doxed (and typically, the first widespread doxing attempt targeted the wrong guy completely. Some poor schlub who was attending his brother's wedding suddenly had his social media explode with calls for his head on a pike), expelled, prevented from going to college, put on blacklists for employment, etc, etc. (Whoever said that the left has managed to recreate Maoism without Mao was dead in the black) That's to be expected, but a good chunk of right wing twitter was joining the chorus. I saw numerous twitter accounts from people (including some who post here) I know to be normally thoughtful and prudent conservatives leaping into the fray and savaging these kids. I saw no doxing calls, and most at least prefaced their condemnations with some variation of “they're just kids”, but the mob was in full howl. * I * was prepared to join them, at least in spirit, but here's the thing. I don't trust the media. Any of it. 95% or more of what's presented in the media is designed to emotionally manipulate you into an unthinking reaction. So I waited, and lo and behold, the story started to come out.


Backstory

Who were these kids? Well, as it turns out, they were a group of kids from Covington Catholic High School in Kentucky, in town for the March for Life. They had been told to meet on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial by 5:30 to catch their buses home. They were in high spirits, roughhousing and catcalling each other and chanting school cheers. Unfortunately for them, also at the Lincoln Memorial was a group of leftist grievance groups, gathering for the Indigenous Peoples March. Among these groups was Phillips (the native American with the drum) and Shar Yaqataz Banyamyan, who is a “Secured Party Hebrew Israelite American National, of the Tribe of Benjamin “ (That's from his Facebook page).

So, to set the stage: Here on the steps we have a boisterous group of mostly white, Catholic high school boys, roughhousing and chanting on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial. Over there we have the leftists activists, including Mrs Phillips and Banyamyan. We are told that the boys (mob), proceeded to surround Mr. Phillips, who was innocently drumming, “taunting” and “intimidating” him and shouting “racist” phrases including “Build the wall!”. We are given the above video to prove this point (although I've watched hours of film of the incident and haven't heard “build the wall” once) That would be pretty despicable behavior, if true. But see, here's the thing. In this age of cell phones, it's not just one person who has a television studio in their pocket, it's everybody. And with everybody filming, it's now nigh impossible for any one piece of film, however edited or tightly framed, to carry the narrative. Set it, sure, see the above clip, but carry it? No. Lets look at the scene from another angle.


Well now, isn't that interesting. As we can see, the Covington kids were dancing and chanting when Mr. Phillips decided to march into their circle. In fact, once you have that context, the entire first clip takes on a different light. Suddenly what we see is a bunch of exuberant kids and “Hey, look here, this drum guy is coming to join us! Yaaaaah!”. You can say that the tomahawk chops were “culturally insensitive”, and I'll give that to you using the standards of hyper-PC culture that the left is demanding, but really, if that's all “racism” is now, haven't we pretty much solved that problem?

To my mind, we now have a totally different situation than the narrative we were spoon fed. Could the kids have been better behaved? I suppose so, but I don't see them doing anything wrong, and in the full video below they show remarkable restraint when Mr. Benyamyan get into it (at one point he yells to the kids “You president is a homosexual!” and several shout back “Who cares?” Just another example of the rampant homophobia on the right donchakno).

Ahh, yes, Mr. Benyamyan. Why did I bring him up in the first place? Well, Mr. Benyamyan did us the service of filming his entire day protesting. He took it down once it was discovered that his film pretty much destroyed the narrative, but the internet, bless its black little heart, is forever. If you have a couple of hours, you can watch the entire event play out,


The part with the Indian and the kids starts shortly after 1:10, and if you watch for 20 minutes or so, you'll see Mr. Benyamyan shouting quite a number of racist and homophobic slurs at the kids. I will confess that I fast forwarded through the first hour of the film, so I'm making no claims on what occurred during that part, so if there's something earth shattering that I missed please tell me, but I've been investigating this for a couple of hours today and I've seen no references to anything.

So there you have it. A perfect case illustrating exactly how the media manipulates a story to push a preferred narrative. The conclusions I've presented here are my own, based upon the available evidence which I've presented above, feel free to draw your own. If you have a compelling counter argument (with evidence), please present it below. There's a lot more information available out there, particularly on Twitter (like statements from the students themselves and a (predictable) knee-jerk condemnation of the kids from the Diocese of Covington ), go see for yourself. Never, ever, ever believe what the media tells you to believe without checking into it personally.

I watched about 10 minutes before the Native American approached them to about 10 minutes after. If the kid is smirking it's because all of these weird fvcks that approached them.

I would have been laughing at them too. Normal people think strange people are strange, and kinda humorous too.

And Shar Yaqataz Banyamyan? I don't think they come any stranger. Batshit crazy isn't even half of his issues.

Late to the thread, but you give the Democrat party too much credit. The Commies that took over by 1972 just hid their anti-American inclinations better. The era of Trump has caused them to remove their masks and we now see the reptilian aliens that had been lurking among us more clearly.

Democrats:
Party of Slavery since 1860
Party of Treason since 1968
Party of Excusing Islamic Jihad since 2001
Party of Domestic Terrorism since 2016

244 The Christian apologist James White among others has discussed the theology of these Black Hebrew Israelite guys. There are a lot of sects, but nearly all are characterized by false history, non-Christian theology (anti-trinitarianism, denial of Christ's deity, works righteousness), and of course hatred of white people. Much of it is crazed anger. I've heard that it's made great inroads into black churches.

I think the appeals are: (1) Getting to feel superior to others. (2) Aggressive triabalism (3) Open masculinity in this effeminate culture which has all too unfortunately impacted elements of the church as well. (4) Biblical illiteracy. (5) Most people are utterly clueless about history, so something like this comes along which posits esoteric things, usually kernels of truth mixed with heaping portions of falsehood and poison, and this "hidden" (aka. mostly false) knowledge is like crack to some.

I work in the education field, legal liability and defense. I fully expect that their School will be sued, because it is Catholic, ya know - like Mike Pence and his wife who are currently under fire for being.. Catholic. Catholic Schools are run by the Diocese which will defend the case.

As for the students? I'm pretty sure that they will ALL be Doxxed, harassed, harangued, bullied, tarred and feathered before their heads go onto a rabid leftist pike.

This type of rabid-Leftist Targeting, Bullying and their rabid attempt to ruin the lives of everyday Americans is not going to end well.

I suggest we call the left what it really is: RABID.

Read the other day about a guy who enlisted in the Airborne at 14. Was kicked out when his mother learned he had been wounded in Sicily. Kicked out of the Navy for underage, too. Finally joined the Merchies on the North Atlantic run. Rejoined the Army after the war, Special Forces, retired after being Sergeant Major of all SF in Vietnam.

The process of destroying this kid is happening now. He sent his local TV station the video and pleaded with them to run the truth but they refrained and stuck with the original story. This could happen to any of our kids. Beyond sickening.

Actually, that smirk is the natural reaction of a young boy to a potential assault OR to actions he does not understand. Were he 19-20 or a little older, he might either pop the dude or simply walk away. But that semi-smile is meant to be disarming.

273 What is the proper etiquette when an old indian you don't know walks up to you beating a drum in your face?

DO:

Treat him with "respect," as the term is defined in The Current Year.
Listen holistically to his chant and try to heal yourself.
Absorb his holy tribal-elder wisdom.
Love his heathen gods as he does.
Apologize for being white.
Bow, or maybe better, kneel.
Patronize every "native-American-looking" person you meet, out of a polite sense of historical guilt.

DON'T:

Smile.
Question him when he says utter falsehoods like "This is indigenous land."
Disbelieve his unlikely claim to be a Vietnam vet.
Investigate his history of grievance-collecting.
Pay attention to the fact that he is nothing but a paid MASCOT of the activist left.
Have a white, punchable, "frat-boy" type of face.
Live in Flyover America.
Wear a MAGA hat.
Be male.
Be Christian.
Be pro-life.

275 I think I may see what's going on. They're trying to get the Pope to weigh in, condemning these students (or, if that's too much, condemning Trump and his supporters in general).
And then run with it and put pressure on any Catholic that supports Trump, just like there used to be some pressure on Catholics who supported abortions, but in reverse now (pressure Catholics who don't support abortions and gay rights).
Francis will feel compelled to offer his opinion and it will be based on some third-hand impressions. He'll probably say that, right or wrong, the students should apologize (turn the other cheek). And then, if they apologize, this will serve as the final guilty verdict in their case.
Does this play seem plausible to anyone else? Hopefully I'm wrong though.
