Saturday night, while banging their drums and chanting, they tried to enter evening Mass at the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception.
Many people are disgusted by the incident and wonder why it has become acceptable to interrupt a house of worship as a political stunt.
When the real footage of the incident was released, it showed the fake news for what it was, a group of grown men ambushing teenagers. However, that didn’t stop the death threats, violence, and other hate spewed by unhinged leftists throughout the country.
A security guard at told the Catholic News Agency that the protest was “really upsetting,” and “there were about twenty people trying to get in, we had to lock the doors and everything.”
“We had hundreds and hundreds of people from all over the country come here to celebrate life,” the guard continued, “It’s a house of worship, a place of prayer where people come to celebrate. All this anger is so against what we are all about here.”
Such actions have prompted others to speculate that apparently this group, led by Phillips, is only interested in targeting people who he thinks he can bully.
The security guard added that the “protest” attempting to enter the church during its Mass was “really the worst.”
Phillips has also claimed that he is a Vietnam veteran, but yesterday, it was discovered that Phillips had never been deployed to Vietnam and that he had been discharged three times, causing the Washington Post to correct its story regarding Phillips’ military record.

The guard stated, “I’m just really grateful that nothing too bad happened, they were really angry.”
The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation reported that about 60 people gathered outside the shrine in support of Phillips, but it failed to report that Phillips and some supporters attempted to disrupt the evening Mass, and other reports confirm only about 20 protestors were involved.
“Video footage showed one supporter saying that the group had gathered at the shrine to listen to Phillips, and to hold the Catholic Church ‘accountable’ for the alleged actions of the Covington Catholic students and for the ‘colonial violence that the Catholic Church reproduces every day.’”
He told CNA that he’d never witnessed anything like it during his time of employment, adding “And this all happened on our biggest event of the year. I hope we never see it again.”
