Today is not a good day for Native American bully Nathan Phillips.
On Monday, Phillips’ story about being threatened by a group of teenage Catholic boys waiting for their school bus to pick them up and take them home from the March for Life, fell apart after video evidence proved it was all a lie.
Today, Phillip’s story about being a U.S. Marine Recon Ranger fell apart today, when it was discovered that again, he lied.
Now, the Catholic News Agency is reporting that night, Phillips and his group of leftist agitators who confronted the group of young Covington Catholic High School boys, were stopped by security at the Washington D.C Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception and were stopped from entering and disrupting their evening mass.
Could it be that Nathan Phillips and his leftist group of agitators were intentionally stirring it up with pro-life Catholics in D.C.?
While chanting and playing ceremonial drums, a group of Native American rights activists reportedly led by Nathan Phillips attempted Jan. 19 to enter Washington, D.C.’s Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception during a Saturday evening Mass.
The group of 20 demonstrators was stopped by shrine security as it tried to enter the church during its 5:15 pm Vigil Mass, according to a shrine security guard on duty during the Mass.
Here is their announcement for the rally at the D.C. Basilica:

“It was really upsetting,” the guard told CNA.
“There were about twenty people trying to get in, we had to lock the doors and everything.”
The guard said the incident was a disappointment during a busy and joyful weekend for the shrine.
“We had hundreds and hundreds of people from all over the country come here to celebrate life, to celebrate each other together. That a protest tried to come inside during Mass was really the worst.”
The guard told CNA the situation was “tense.”
“I’m just really grateful that nothing too bad happened, they were really angry.”
A source close to the shrine’s leadership corroborated the security guard’s account, telling CNA that during the Mass, Phillips and the group tried to enter the church while playing drums and chanting, and were prohibited from entering the building by security personnel, who locked the main basilica doors with the congregation still inside.
Here’s a video of Phillips reading a list of demands of the Covington Catholic students, their school and the Catholic church outside the D.C, Basilica. It’s difficult to understand him at times in the video, as he appears to be reading from something that someone else wrote for him.
Standing here today with Nathan Phillips. Most of you know he was greatly disrespected by students from #convingtoncatholic This man is a Native American Elderly Veteran who fought on these lands. This is absolutely disgusting and unexceptionable. #defendtheroots #iwontbackdown pic.twitter.com/7BG2sixf4t
