After deleting her tweets that misrepresented the entire encounter between Covington Catholic Students, Nathan Phillips and a third hate group initially un reported, U.S. Representative for Minnesota’s 5th congressional district Ilhan Omar is still refusing to apologize to the Students for her uninformed attacks on their character.
As reported by Dep. Kel, Last month a video of Covington Catholic High School students and a group of Native Americans went viral. After only watching a short part of the video, the media, political figures and celebrities took to twitter to spread lies about the students, threaten them and some even called for the students to be doxxed. They put out false information and accused the students of being racists, yelling racist chants and getting in an elderly Native American man’s face. But in reality, none of this happened.
Omar’s comments and and similar attacks put the lives of these children in jeopardy.
Following the incident and facing imminent lawsuit, Omar deleted her tweets.
Here is the tweet that has been since deleted:
So @IlhanMN just quietly deleted this tweet where she literally lies about everything to smear Covington students even though there's clear video evidence.
Don't worry though, I archived it for you all and it's never going away.
