Newly elected Congresswoman Ilhan Omar has joined the bandwagon against the Covington teens, while defending a racist group yellowing slurs at the teens.
Far-left Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) defends the Black Hebrew Israelites, which even the Southern Poverty Law Center says is a *hate group*
The group called the Covington Catholic HS boys:
-"Child molesting f**gots"
-"Dirty a*s crackers"
-"Future school shooters"
-"Incest babies" https://t.co/9C3M0lKpww

From Daily Caller:
Democratic Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar continued to promulgate a debunked narrative on Tuesday by misrepresenting an incident between Catholic high school boys, black supremacists and American Indian activists.Ilhan Omar
Students from Covington Catholic High School in Kentucky were attending a school-sponsored trip to the March for Life on Friday when they were taunted by a group of self-described Black Hebrew Israelites, who were protesting and taking videos. After the Black Hebrew Israelites jeered a nearby group of Native Americans who were gathered for the Indigenous Peoples March, a confrontation ensued between the three groups.
A short video quickly went viral showing the boys laughing and chanting around the small group of Native American protesters. The boys, who were wearing Make America Great Again (MAGA) hats, were quickly dubbed the “MAGA hat kids” and the incident was characterized as a racially motivated attack.
Native American activist Nathan Phillips repeatedly misrepresented several facts about a viral incident, however, the news media largely ran with his story.
A longer video was released that corroborated the students’ accounts of events and debunked Phillips’ statements. Regardless, Omar continued to promote the false narrative three days after it was debunked.
