Comments

  1. As a Vietnam vet myself, I'm appalled at the youth in this video. Many men have died protecting their rights over the years only for it to come to this. All of these students lives combined together are not worth the life of the man they were mocking. I blame their parents for not using proper birth control. America would be so much better if NONE of them had ever been born.

  2. Re the border wall and the immigrants fleeing their desperate countries, read the article by Stephanie Herweck in the Chicago Sun Times, January 20, 2019 about how America has been SUPPORTING the DICTATORS in Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala and it is they who have kept the people from improving their own conditions in their own countries. Wake up, America, to the truth of the situation! A wall is only a band-aid solution!!! America is the guilty party in this mess.

  3. The news just proved their bias, they interview a border patrol agent who tells them there is a crisis, then immediately question whether or not there is a crisis. Then they immediately follow that with a propaganda story about some youth protesting for a border wall, but spin it in a way to make them look bad because they are wearing MAGA hats. This news station is clearly an arm of the radical left wing.

  4. it's Border agents who are working without pay that's protecting our borders not a wall….these people are not a band of criminals…its families trying to find a better life in the US…if there isn't a crisis now there will be…

  5. THESE YOUTHS SHOULD BE SMACKED!  HOW DARE THEM HARASS THIS ELDER!  WE AS A NATION NEED TO LISTEN TO THE NATIVE AMERICAN INDIANS!  WE SHOULD HAVE LISTENED TO THEM A CENTURY AGO AND WE WOULDN'T BE IN THIS CHAOTIC MESS TODAY!!!!

  6. Trump your red hat is spreading hate everywhere you and the GOP are hateful.but heres an idea move to Russia its all white like you and it bends a country to its will so off you go

  7. All of those little brats need to be spanked!
    His Honor, the Native Elder veteran has the patience of Buddha and a strong heart!

  8. Gabe keeps saying undocumented immigrants… like nearly all of the MSM. These people have violated U.S. immigration law and entered the country illegally. They’re illegal aliens, per SCOTUS. Illegal alien is the correct legal term. “Undocumented immigrant” is a term adopted by pro-illegal alien groups and liberal media outlets.

  9. Learning decency, respect for others not like ones self, and compassion comes from the heart. The kids will learn……..life isn't always kind.

  10. Shame on CNN. The old man approached the kid. The kid never moved. Fake news strikes again! You really make me sad for you with your propaganda. Brainwashing young people into believing all trump voters and white people are bad. Have you no decency?

  11. So disrespectful – obviously the School & parents aren't doing a very good job on showing their High School children – respect to Veterans & Native Americans – so sad

  12. Racist, ignorant, clueless, vulgar, disrespectful, hateful, tasteless, deplorable American scum. Sorry, that was redundant; "American" says it all.

  13. The stupidity of those high school boys. Covington Catholic, we now know about you. You are a national disgrace. Mean American Goons Attack. In Germany, a country that some people will always associate with Nazis, there is a high regard for Native Americans. Germans look at Indians as human beings of noble character. Contrast that with the boys who have brought shame to Kentucky.

  14. the DHS agent says it's a humanitarian nightmare because the "papers please" thugs will miss a paycheck. the patriot act needs rescinding

  15. White people dont know history do they this is natives land. These white people bout to start a war they not understanding what going to happen

  16. Am i the only one who wants to crush that smilling catholic kids face in ? I'm sure they were taught that American Indians are from Mexico.

  17. Covington Catholic High School, of Park Hills, Kentucky – How proud you must be of the young 'men' you are educating.

  18. So a completely republican-controlled government shuts down, then democrats inherit the shut down government and republicans refuse to open it unless Trump gets his statue built.. is that about right? Even aside from all the racism and homophobia, republicans are a disgrace.

  19. Those disrepectful punks should be ashamed of themselves. They can take those hats and stick them where the sun doesn't shine!

  20. These are the "deplorables".. Redeemable but deplorable..10:45 I thought "religion" is supposed to teach these kids morals? Funny how a megalomaniac GOD and President has taught these kid no respect for others…

  21. It has already come out that those k8ds were singing a SCHOOL SONG and the Indian approached them from a distance and provoked the standoff. It is shameful that any news agency would distort the facts especially when it critisizes our children for doing absolutely nothing. This is the MSM doing everything in its power to weaponize the news, and false news at that. The elderly Indian man is only half right. 600 years ago there were no walls. However, there were tribal wars on the border and within the Americas because of land. Times have changed. Technology has changed. Indigenous or not, this is OUR land. Build that wall.

  22. There was an unusually high number of kids wearing MAGA hats trying to disrupt the indigenous people's rally. Makes ya think they were put up to wearing those hats on purpose knowingly trying to disrespect indigenous people and associate that with Trump supporters somehow. Hmm… liberals disguising themselves as Trump supporters just to get people to hate them? Are liberals getting smart all of a sudden?

  23. Could you imagine if the Indigenous people had built a wall 11:25 instead of being so open and willing to let the Europeans in. They wouldn't have been put in reservations.

  24. like i said on twitter. Trump spreading hate by proxy. the kid in the elders face has a death wish. but he is white so it will get covered up.

  25. How can people blame Trump for that punk kid showing disrespect. Trump was in office for 2 years. Those parents failed him his whole life. That Catholic school had better rectify this this has nothing to do with politics it's bad parenting and how grandparents will go to not have to discipline or teach their children

  26. The day the government shut down you reported the Congress shut it down. Now you say the president shut it down. I'm tired of the lies.

  27. Despite how much trump irritates it was nice of him to make some progress so a group people can get citizenship.

  28. I can honestly say that I have never had to work for nothing. Not ever. Not once in my lifetime. How does not paying the border patrol make the border more safe?

  29. And trump and his cult would call this fake news…. THANK YOU NBC for your great news coverage, it is much appreciated and we can and do trust your reports, unlike the lying Fox. THANK YOU NBC!!!

  30. Those punkass kids need to have the smirks permanently erased off their faces. Being Native American myself this goes above disrespect. There is going to be a modern day Massacre because of stupid individuals like these. Then who are they going to blame when a large group of them go down? Blaming us indigenous Native Americans won't solve the issues.

  31. hehe.. you guys are still running the buzz feed story? Also, you should think about taking a look at other videos about that Indigenous people's march, it's much more interesting that the clip shown here.

  32. Lol … Fake news always makes such a Dramatic entrance … even the opening music is made to make it feel so dramatic only to find that they don’t tell the truth most of the time …. it’s all about getting the views … but they are losing

  33. PELOSI……IS THE RICH OLD BAG AT THE BEACH AGAIN?? THIS OLD INCOMPETENT, INCOHERENT, HIGH SCHOOL EDUCATED FAMILY NITWIT……..NEEDS TO GO. HER CRIME MAFIA FAMILY WILL LOSE MILLIONS IF THERE IS A WALL. GET RID OF THIS RICH MONEY SUCKING CROOK !!!

  34. wow those students mocking elderly chiefs my god it just disgusting mabye we shouldgo back 100 years and those natives should scalp those rude and disgusting and stupid students whats even worst some of those students could be running the us in 20 years

  35. SOME ONE SHOULD FIND THE NAME OF ALL THOSE DISRESPECTFULL LOSERS AND POST IT EVERY WHERE AND MAKE IT VIRUL AND IF THAT DONT HAPPEN I WOULD EXPECT AN APOLLIGY ON AIR

  36. Those kids who harassed my fellow Vietnam veteran are from Kentucky, where the toothbrush was invented. Any place else and we would be calling it the teeth brush.

  37. Who gave birth to those bad seeds. As a mother I would be ashamed to have given birth. Blood line is trash. Dishonor!

  38. I surmise that this group of folks, usually PROTECTED, federal employees, that they've had a continuous run of employment. This is a serious rest. Hopefully some entrepreneurs are born…. Some artists….. Perhaps some people never RETURN, AFTER THIS, but yeah , they're in a test of their lives……..

  39. This is native American land. It is not those who stole this land nor their evil fore fathers. Looking at the seeds of demons makes me ask God. Treat them like they treated the Native Americans.

  40. Why did you make up the story about the native American man being harassed? It was the other way around. This is fake news.

  41. The kid should be disciplined to a month at home to learn the manner, respect and history.
    It is a shame for the Catholic school to have produced a racialist jerk. And his parents should be shamed by the kid nerdy behavior.

  42. The cessation of the government shutdown will make man's jobs profitable like they were in the beginning of employment.

  43. Well, if you followed Al Gore's predictions, snow was supposed to be a thing of the past and the NBC news headquarters was supposed to be under water by now.

  44. Article IV Section 4 "The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against Invasion; and …"

  45. WTF ? Seriously, consider that ? I think it got worse !! AMERICA SPOKE !!! 75 % !! IQ45 needs to respect our country and it's government. OPEN the govt. AS for that kid…see below 100% agreed !! A catholic high school right ??

  46. I am shocked at the level of disrespect and the display of open bullying on an elderly war veteran. Shame on these high school students. I hope they get expelled from their schools. It is because of such youth and guys at the top who promote the 'red hat agenda' that America is falling from grace at a very fast pace. I feel so bad to see such things happening in a country that I adore so much.

  47. Hope the cult freezes to death. Sick of you dumb animals in my world. You are colossal fuckups. Not worth having around. You ruin everything you ugly vile freaks.

  48. That just broke my heart in two.I have always been so respectful and fond of Native Americans since i wad a child.They resoected the land, The Animals and The earth.I wish to god i would have been their in person.
