'This man is a despicable liar': Glenn stands behind Covington boys, exposes lies about them

The Glenn Beck Program

'We must stand up for these boys in Covington ... it's despicable what has happened'

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn took an in-depth look into Nathan Phillips' version of his run-in with the students of Covington Catholic High School in front of the Lincoln Memorial last week.

His investigation lead to unfavorable conclusions regarding Phillips, to put it mildly.

"This man is a despicable liar, and the media held him up. And they are still holding him up," asserted Glenn. "And the media never did any of this work. They never looked at the entire body of evidence to find out what really happened. They saw young white boys from a Christian school wearing MAGA hats and instantly handed out a verdict of guilty."

Phillips initially told the Washington Post and CNN that the Covington Catholic High school students surrounded him after he stepped in to calm a confrontation between the Covington boys and four members of the Black Hebrew Israelites.

"Then there was this young group of young students that came there and were offended by their speech, and it escalated into an ugly situation that I found myself in the middle of. Yeah, I found myself in the middle of it, sort of woke up to it ... It looked like these young men were going to attack these guys. They were going to hurt them. They were going to hurt them because they didn't like the color of their skin. They didn't like their religious views," Phillips said to CNN.

Later Phillips contradicted this in an interview with the Detroit Free Press, admitting that it he, not the Covington students, initiated the contact. But he explained that did this because the boys were attacking the Black Israelites.

"They were in the process of attacking these four black individuals," Phillip said. "I was there and I was witnessing all of this ... As this kept on going on and escalating, it just got to a point where you do something or you walk away, you know? You see something that is wrong and you're faced with that choice of right or wrong."

"This is clearly not what happened," Glenn said. "If you've watched the video, it's all too painfully obvious."

Glenn emphatically stated that he stands behind the Covington Catholic High School students and encouraged listeners to do the same. Find out how you can help here.

"[We] must stand up for these boys in Covington. They have been hassled. They've had death threats. Their school is shut down today," he said. "These boys are heroes who tried to do the right thing and were betrayed, betrayed by the group of people they were trying to assist and help. And then betrayed by the media. And then betrayed by social media, and all of us who might have said something that isn't true because we believed the media. They were betrayed by their own principal, their own priest, their own church, their own Archdiocese, their own mayor. It's despicable what has happened."

"These boys, I would be proud proud to call my own son. The parents of these boys are under attack. Some of them are being attacked at work," added Glenn. "These boys are innocent, not just innocent, but the story you have been told is the exact opposite. They are protectors of the weak."
