By Nick Sandmann | PUBLISHED: February 21, 2019 at 10:43 pm | UPDATED: February 22, 2019 at 6:33 am I am providing this factual account of what happened on Friday afternoon at the Lincoln Memorial to correct misinformation and outright lies being spread about my family and me. I am the student in the video who was confronted by the Native American protestor. I arrived at the Lincoln Memorial at 4:30 p.m. I was told to be there by 5:30 p.m., when our busses were due to leave Washington for the trip back to Kentucky. We had been attending the March for Life rally, and then had split up into small groups to do sightseeing. When we arrived, we noticed four African American protestors who were also on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial. I am not sure what they were protesting, and I did not interact with them. I did hear them direct derogatory insults at our school group. The protestors said hateful things. They called us “racists,” “bigots,” “white … [Read more...] about Student in Lincoln Memorial confrontation responds

Photo by File Graphic The Tuesday morning Chattanooga Times Free Press on Sept. 11, 2001, focused on the Monday funeral of Hamilton County Sheriff's Deputy Donald Bond, who had been gunned down at an East Brainerd fruit and vegetable stand the Friday before. The story chronicled the outpouring of support as the funeral process traveled from Collegedale to Chattanooga National Cemetery; a three-column picture of the rider-less horse symbolic of a fallen officer was centered below a four-column headline, "An emotional farewell." His killer, Marlon Duane Kiser, was convicted two years later and is serving a life sentence. The other lead story reported on the first subcommittee hearing on a bill by Rep. Zach Wamp that would lead to Moccasin Bend being designated as the first National Archeological District … [Read more...] about Moments in Memory: 9/11 crossed generational lines as most impactful event

In the initial media churn, they were nearly missed. But a small band of Hebrew Israelites, members of a historic but little-known American religious movement, may actually be at the center of a roiling controversy that has gripped the nation in recent days. It began with a now-viral video clip, filmed Friday at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, in which high school students from a Catholic school in Kentucky appeared to be in a faceoff with a Native American elder, who was beating on a drum. The boys, some wearing red hats with President Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign slogan, appeared in the clip to be mocking the man, a Vietnam veteran named Nathan Phillips. The clip was widely understood as being centrally about the dangers of Trumpism, and the teens were condemned. But a longer video soon bubbled to the surface, widening the lens. It showed how a group of half a dozen Hebrew Israelites had, in fact, been goading and preaching at both the Native Americans and high schoolers, … [Read more...] about Who are the Black Israelites at the center of the viral standoff at the Lincoln Memorial?
