    Anyone familiar with social media would know that you don't need it to be a conspiracy for the rush to viralize the news to get it wrong.

    First of all, it's a straw man because those two incidents are unrelated even if Sandmann did or did not have knowledge of the women from earlier (that's assuming that he himself was there). Second of all, their claims of being "harassed" are fishy because you can clearly hear one of the kids shouting "We can't hear you!" at the start of the video to the women implying that they said something first that was conveniently not filmed. And even the women hadn't been the provocateurs, while chanting "Maga" and "Build the Wall" in public might be annoying, it's hardly a crime. Especially as their school was closed today because the staff couldn't guarantee the children's safety since people are still advocating violence over children over a false narrative.

    In regards to Phillips himself. No one's saying he isn't a ex-soldier of some kind, just that his claims of being a Vietnam vet are dubious given he's only 64 and yet he claims to have been in the marines during Vietnam which is unlikely as the marines left Vietnam in '71 which would make him 15-16 at the time of leaving. (Enlistment age is 17 at the minimum).

    But whatever, it's clear you and I will not see eye to eye on this situation. I won't continue to press the subject since it's clear people want to move on.

    oh yeah since everyone is tired of this argument turns out the new spin on things is quite literally that because the parents of one of the kids hired a PR firm

    still not quite sure why this is so important in general

    It has all the elements for easy outrage clicks. I find interesting how some highlight the whole 'innocence of children' take on events but curiously some children in the quite recent US history did not get the same courtesy, puzzling.

    the point is moot nobody who actually defends these "kids" thinks they made any kind of mistake

    its point scoring and politically completely irrelevant

    Clearly they got their money's worth with that PR firm, damn. Hook, line, and sinker.

    Those dudes are bound to do something stupid again in public though, the paid sympathy only teaches them to get bolder and they sure aren't looking to repent.

    You're implying people's 'boys will be boys' is just posturing in the service of keeping a publicly acceptable face and abide by social norms where kids insulting an elderly man is still seen as somewhat crass while they themselves consider it perfectly acceptable behavior and desperately want to play it off as innocent as possible so normies take their word for it or can be easily accused of being paranoid if they happen to smell the dogwhistles?

    Who would even do such a thing?!

    idk, maybe theres currently a governmental crisis because some advisor thought it would be smart to give the president an anti immigration mnemonic in the form of something tangible that is from a security standpoint irrelevant

    mainly because he doesnt like reading speeches

    which is now the #1 issue of government funding

    i distinctively remember several people telling me "buster this wall thing, hes not actually that dumb, its just a thing he says as placeholder for tighter border security"

    and now staffing border security and logistical components of this are not discussed at all and its literally about building a wall that does nothing because this guy is probably suffering from dementia

    - - - Updated - - -

    this is just so fucking stupid that when i was a 14 year old kid and bought fully into the bush is a literal monkey meme i wouldve dismissed the current situation as an unfair exaggeration of his stupidity
