2 Videos show Nick is lying about Nathan Phillips. Phillips told AP he moved between the two groups to diffuse the tension. This video is from pov of the BI group- clearly shows that's exactly what he did. By the end you can see kids have surrounded NP

Look at the crowd at the :30 pt and the 2:05 point. NP moves a couple steps but mainly is standing still. 100% non-aggressive. Look at the blue coat kid jumping at 1:13 mark just to the right in front of Phillips. Nick is several feet behind him.

Here is the blue coat kid from another video. Notice Nick is behind him. There is beige cap kid between them. Things are much calmer now.

Beige cap kid moves away, you can see the edge of the drum here (I'll post full video in a sec). Nick begins to move forward.

Phillips is moving a little as he drums, but basically staying in same place a couple feet to the right, looking for a way through and blue coat is in front of him but now Nick has come forward a bit.

At this point, it does seem like tensions have eased around Phillips and the kids. There are some kids on the peripheral making tomahawk chop chants etc, but mostly it's calm. Nick has closed the gap. There is an opening behind him. Kids are making a clear path for Phillips.

And then the mood changes. Nick is not moving. Phillips has been slowly making his way forward towards the memorial, you can see him look around for an opening. This spot is the most open. The kids made room. Except for Nick. This is when some of the boys behavior escalates.

The crowd fills in behind Nick. The woman says "you guys are acting like a mob" More chanting, goofy dancing, etc. We have two people from different groups who were there and both mention the inappropriate behavior of the boys. Both see Phillips as a peace maker.

So Phillips did not lie. He went towards the Lincoln Memorial to finish his prayer-song. He got between the two groups to diffuse peace. The boys surrounded him and Nick approached him even as his peers were making room for him to walk through.

All those other kids knew he was trying to pass them. But when Nick chose to stand his ground, the boys followed his lead. Where they knew earlier Phillips was trying to get through, they saw Nick was not letting him and so filled in the space. This is more clear on the video.

So no matter how Nick and his mom try to portray them as victims of Phillips, it's bs. Nick purposely put himself in that spot and refused to move. The open space was behind Nick. There was none behind Phillips. Don't defend an asshole just because he wears the same hat as you.

Ugh ton of awkward phrases (diffuse peace etc) in this, but I was hyper-focused on the videos. Sorry. You know what I mean.

Where is your brilliant analysis and observation that the elder could have walked around the kid. The kid never moves. Never threatens. Even when hit with the drum. But sure, kid is horrible.

Which two videos? I just see your one link to the National Review, which seems to have an excerpt of the Black Hebrew Israelites 90 minute video.

Interview with at , stated he stepped to the left then to the right and this kid kept blocking him. This disrespectful boy is lying. And mommy hiring a PR firm says it all. Now, we know how he is raised at home.

You can see him moving to the right and then back to the left in the 2nd video and you can see the other kids move out of the way, but Nick stays put. So obviously the other kids knew he was trying to move forward.

Where could he have walked? The video shows him trying to walk around. He ends up in the spot with the most daylight. Except for Nick. Why does everyone clear the space? Because they knew he was trying to get through. But, once in place, the kid never moves, like you said.

Why does he have to move for him? Now we can’t even occupy space?!? People got out of the way of hitler, if that’s what you’re referring to. But I wouldn’t call the elder a nazi like you.

Keep saying that.. the “veteran” is about to get sued for lying to the media. The news outlets are going to be making these kids rich very soon.
