Every time he talks, his story changes. And why not, he talks whenever he gets caught in a previous lie. So then he talks again and waits for that lie to be exposed.
Nathan Phillips is not a Viet Nam veteran as he claims. He was a refrigeration mechanic, stationed stateside and who went AWOL three times in his 4 years of duty. He also has a criminal record. He was caught drinking as a minor multiple times, assault, escaping from prison and assorted other charges.
He even ran a fundraiser for himself…. as a Vietnam veteran, which of course was another lie.
Despite Phillips’ criminal record, he criticized the Covington Catholic high school teens for their behavior.
“When we see our youth going the wrong way, we will go up and say, ‘You are doing the wrong thing there nephew, or grandson,’” he told Rewire News on Sunday. “This is just the wrong way. I tell them, ‘This is the way you have to behave. This is wrong, this is right. You gotta do it a certain way. We have protocols.’”
Phillips also told CNN on Saturday, after the encounter with the students on Friday that they looked like were going to “lynch” a group of black protesters, who were later identified as Black Hebrew Israelites that were harassing the students.
“Here are American youth who are ready to, look like, lynch these guys. To be honest, they looked like they were going to lynch them. They were in this mob mentality. Where were their parents? Because they were obvious a student group,” Phillips said.
He also said Sandmann had “put himself in front” of him, according to CNN’s transcript.
“This young fellow put himself in front of me and wouldn’t move. If I took another step, I would be putting my person into his presence, into his space and I would’ve touched him and that would’ve been the thing that the group of people would’ve needed to spring on me,” he told CNN.
