Posted on 01/22/2019 11:37:03 AM PST by Enlightened1
The Washington Post has had to issue yet another retraction after falsely claiming that far-left Native American activist Nathan Phillips served in the Vietnam War. He didnt but this lie was previously used to help raise money for a documentary about his life.
On Monday, the Washington Post quietly issued a correction to their story about the activist, saying that while he served in the Marines, he was never deployed to Vietnam.
Correction: Earlier versions of this story incorrectly said that Native American activist Nathan Phillips fought in the Vietnam War. Phillips served in the U.S. Marines from 1972 to 1976 but was never deployed to Vietnam, the correction reads.

It also seems as though he resents Catholics.
Nathans past is a difficult one. He was forced out of his family at age five to be integrated into a Catholic school like so many ther Native Americans not being allowed to see his family for ten years, Stanisheva stated.
He’s an undocumented war hero.
I’m tellin’ ya, somebody needs to check this guys ethnicity. I’m not altogether convinced he is infact a Native American.
Isnt this another example of stolen valor? This guy needs to do some explaining to his fellow Marines, if he even served. Nathan Phillips is a real POS!
This guy reminds me of the couple(And the fake homeless guy who supposedly gave them his last 20 bucks to buy gas), had a gofundme page..and the entire story was total BS..this activist loser who I bet is NOT even a real Indian, raised a lot of money on his LIES, arrest his ass
This clown is as useless as the wooden Indian in Wall Drug. Wall, South Dakota.
Well, he was either there or he wasn’t. A number of John Kerry’s “witnesses” to Vietnam “atrocities” had never spent a day in Vietnam; others were coached to lie publicly at the so-called Winter Soldier investigation. I guess this clown is like Sen. Dick Blumenthal, who like other vets said he was treated badly upon his return, only he was never there in the first place.
He also hates Trump, he’s been seen protesting outside Trump Tower numerous times..boy this guy gets around
That would be the icing on the cake...if Elizabeth Warren beats him in the dna derby.
Does this really surprise anyone? He’s a self-promoting, walking sham. His goal in life is to seek attention. Period.

Yes it is stolen valor.
In the 2012 video raising money for a documentary about his life they explicitly say he is a Vietnam veteran.
Probably blood brother to Blumenthal..Can’t remember what that ugly bastard’s first name is now.
>>Im not altogether convinced he is in fact a Native American.<<
Another Iron Eyes Cody fake Indian.
Might’ve been in John F’n Kerry’s unit ?
