ICYMI, a bunch of Brett Kavanaugh starter kits from Covington Catholic HS in Kentucky made spectacles of themselves yesterday:
The images in videos that went viral on social media Saturday showed a tense scene near the Lincoln Memorial.
In them, a Native American man steadily beats his drum at the tail end of Friday’s Indigenous Peoples March while singing a song of unity for indigenous people to “be strong” in the face of the ravages of colonialism that now include police brutality, poor access to health care and the ill effects of climate change on reservations.
Surrounding him are a throng of young, mostly white teenage boys, several wearing “Make America Great Again” caps, with one standing about a foot from the drummer’s face also wearing a relentless smirk.
Nathan Phillips, a veteran in the indigenous rights movement, was that man in the middle.
In an interview Saturday, Phillips, 64, said he felt threatened by the teens and that they suddenly swarmed around him as he and other activists were wrapping up the march and preparing to leave.
Completely unsurprisingly, it turns out that this school is notoriously for entitled racist rich shits:

None of this is surprising- what does one expect from an all male school around Cincinnati that sends teenagers to a “march for life” wearing MAGA hats? I mean, it would not surprise me at all if the parents and teachers are as bad as the kids or worse.
And while we are at it, it was not a march for “life.” It was an anti-abortion march. The fuckers at that yesterday don’t give a shit about life.
