Confederates Cry Victim at D.C. March – Freedom vs Freedom?

 

Fans of the Confederate flag marched on Washington, D.C., to defend their standard and claim victimhood. Less than three months ago, Dylann Roof walked into Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in downtown Charleston and slaughtered nine people because of the color of their skin. Because they were black. Hours after the church shooting, pictures surfaced that showed Roof taunting America and his victims. The disturbing photos showed Roof holding the Confederate flag. It was his personal battle flag. This Saturday, a quiet Labor Day weekend in Washington, D.C., became the sad center of that movement, as it hosted possible the feeblest pro-Confederate flag rally ever at the Upper Senate Park at 11 a.m. According to the event page that was set up for the demonstration, 1,400 people were planning to attend. As it turned out, roughly 75 people made it. People came all the way from Tennessee, Indiana, and Virginia. Of the 75, three of them were “security” guards wearing awkwardly fitting black suits.
