A heated confrontation unfolded in what started out as a group of American citizens showing their support for a flag that has flown freely in this country since 1864.
The only thing racist about the Confederate flag is what Barack Hussein Obama is doing to it.
“The blood on my face, the blood in my teeth, the blood on my hands is no comparison to the Southern blood that runs through my veins.”
Those are the proud words spoken by Joe Linder, one of the people that supports history, freedom of speech and oppose banning the confederate flag.
He was hit during the brawl and said “racism has no part” in the flag.
“I’m gonna tell you one thing, I ain’t sitting down; this’ll just make me walk taller,” he said.
According to an eyewitness, a Confederate flag was ripped from a passing car. The car following behind stopped, and a passenger got out to retrieve the flag and ask why it was ripped down.
That’s when the confrontation began.
“It felt like they were taunting us and the people on the ‘take it down’ side reacted to that,” one of the anti-flag protesters said.
Police began separating the two groups and pushing them back onto the statehouse grounds. One man was arrested at the scene and charged with disorderly conduct.
