A young man in a Confederate uniform holding a Confederate flag stood at attention by Robert E. Lee’s statue. He was silent as Antifa screamed in his face, flipping the finger at him.
The called him a terrorist and demanded he go home.
“You have a home to go to! There are people who are dead and injured and stuck in the f*cking hospital and yet you are here doing this when you could just stand up!”
The Antifa called the police, demanding he be taken away. A patrol car pulled up and and officer took him into the car.
One of the hate-filled women followed the officer, recording as she claimed the man, who had done nothing wrong, was “terrorizing” people.
The police officer blasted the woman and said, “you want another day like Saturday, don’t you? You should be ashamed of yourself”
She then put the deaths on “him”, meaning the officer.
As the young man with the Confederate flag walked away, he said, “I want to honor my ancestors. They need to know that what they fought for wasn’t slavery or oppression.”
The only oppression is coming from the left who wouldn’t let this man stand, bothering no one. He has the right.
I’m no fan of the Confederacy being brought up in the North and having ancestors who dies fighting for the North in the Civil War. However, I understand that most of these fighters thought they were fighting for their “country” and the dead soldiers should be honored. The Southern heritage is good and bad and they deserve to keep whatever they feel is good about it. The leadership in the country was largely responsible for the Civil War. There were many mistakes by the time Lincoln came into office and he came in for war.
We are the sum total of all that went before, bad and good, there’s plenty of both but the USA has always come out on the correct side, until now. Identity politics is evil and must end.
