Nathan Phillips, the professional activist/attention whore who waded into a protest by Covington Catholic kids and banged a drum in their faces, lied about serving in Vietnam. Color me shocked.
Via Gateway Pundit:
The Washington Post has had to issue yet another retraction after falsely claiming that far-left Native American activist Nathan Phillips served in the Vietnam War. He didn’t — but this lie was previously used to help raise money for a documentary about his life.
……This wasn’t the first time that Phillips has misrepresented his service.
In a video about the documentary, director Maria Stanisheva explained that her documentary was about Phillips’ belief that he could pray cancer away from his wife.
Stanisheva explained in the footage that Phillips had been sent to a Catholic boarding school at the age of five. From the sound of it, he resents the experience.
……Countless media outlets and reporters used this false claim about his service in an attempt to shame those who questioned his antics when he confronted the students in Washington, DC.
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.
Looks like Sitting Bull Shit has the same problem as Richard Blumenthal.
