‘It’s Not Rape If You Enjoy It,’ Says Teen Involved In Native American Elder Incident





A confrontation between MAGA-hat-wearing students at Covington Catholic High School and a Native American elder sparked a nationwide conversation about racism and a fierce debate about who the real victims are.

HuffPost first reported on a new video from the confrontation showing a student, who has not been confirmed to be a Covington Catholic High School student but is part of a group of teens that includes students from that school, shouting, “It’s not rape if you enjoy it.”

Some students can be heard laughing, while others gasped.



The students in the video had just come from the March for Life, the country’s largest antiabortion rally and march, reports The Washington Post.

Parkland shooting survivor David Hogg condemned the incident on Twitter:

The “they’re just young just boys” mentality for young white men must be stopped.

Saying ”it’s not rape if you enjoy it” is not just something boys say out of the blue, that is learned hate.

Can’t wait to see @FLOTUS comment on this #BeBest

WokeSloth notes:

While this short clip doesn’t show the students from the other, now infamous ‘MAGA Teen’ video, a longer video of the incident shows that the student making the rape comment is part of the same group of students who gathered at the Lincoln Memorial when all this ridiculous bullsh*t went down and is presumably a student at Covington Catholic. (The comment comes at the 13:40 mark.)

A new video emerged on social media this week reportedly showing the Covington Catholic High School boys ‘harassing’ a group of young women shortly before the viral confrontation between a Native American elder and the students.

Former Covington Catholic basketball player Jacob Walter is accused of pinning a woman down last month and raping her until she bled, according to a news release from the Boone County Sheriff’s Department, reports WCPO-TV.

The New York Post on Monday reported that photographs of students from the same school in ‘blackface’ have emerged.




The same Catholic Diocese that oversees Covington Catholic High School in Kentucky also reportedly banned openly gay valedictorian Christian Bales’ speech at the High School of the Holy Cross last May.

President Trump weighed in on the controversy, tweeting his support Monday night for the students from Covington Catholic High School in Park Hills, Kentucky.

Fox News’ Laura Ingraham reported that the students will meet with President Trump at the White House “as early as tomorrow.”

A number of students have shared stories of discrimination they allege happened at the hands of Covington Catholic High School students.

In a lengthy Twitter thread, Mac Duckworth claims after he came out as gay, he was harassed and threatened by Covington Catholic students.

He says an army of fake Twitter accounts were created to harass him online. He also claims an explicit image of him was printed and shared throughout the school and says his name was mentioned in morning announcements for the school’s “prayer board.”

“I’m tired of being afraid to go certain places because of cov cath. I’m tired of being depressed and treated unfairly. I’m tired of it all.”
