FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) — A diocese in Kentucky apologized Saturday after videos emerged showing students from a Catholic boys' high school mocking Native Americans outside the Lincoln Memorial after a rally in Washington.

The Indigenous Peoples March in Washington on Friday coincided with the March for Life, which drew thousands of anti-abortion protesters, including a group from Covington Catholic High School in Park Hills.

Videos circulating online show a youth staring at and standing extremely close to Nathan Phillips, a 64-year-old Native American man singing and playing a drum.

Other students, some wearing Covington clothing and many wearing "Make America Great Again" hats and sweat shirts, surrounded them, chanting, laughing and jeering.

Look at all the punks mocking this man.  They act exactly the way I remember them acting when I was in Catholic high school.  The shithead with a smile standing so close to the Native American deserves expulsion.  Or maybe a Catholic priest could bugger these boys to shake them up.  Catholics are pigs.

"Editorial: MAGA-hatted teens, a Native American and the peril of instant judgment"

An editorial from the Chicago Tribune:

"But the reaction turns out to be a cautionary tale about jumping to conclusions. Other videos of the gathering showed the students being subjected to nasty slurs by black protesters known as the Hebrew Israelites; the teens eventually countered with chants. It was Phillips who strode up close to the boy in the MAGA hat, singing and beating a drum. Robby Soave of Reason watched two hours of footage and didn’t hear a single 'build the wall.'"

How do insults by the "Hebrew Israelites" lead these Catholic piglets to taunt and mock Native Americans? Did you see how many students were doing "the tomahawk" during the drumming? They were dancing and taunting a Native American elder because they were insulted by black supremacists? That makes no sense. I went to Catholic high school. The in-crowd was always picking on the out-crowd. The boys were bullies and the priests were molesters. Nothing's changed in 50 years.
