First they came for the inbred hicks, and I giggled

In today’s episode of “What About MY Civil Rights, Bro?” we bring you the tale of sad Confederate-flag waver and butthurt neckbeard Chris Oliver and his wife Angela, who were taking part in a “Confederate flag run” through the mostly black town of Petersburg, Virginia, when they were astonished to be greeted by unruly local negroes throwing water bottles and shouting vile racial slurs at him. The ordeal was so traumatic that Chris called the police and insisted that justice be done! Watch the shocking news video from WBBT, if you dare!

The Olivers were just minding their own business, along with roughly 100 other people driving pickups carrying large Confederate flags — in a totally non-confrontational manner — when someone threw a water bottle at their pickup. AND DENTED IT!

“My initial reaction was, ‘What the hell?’” Oliver recalled, adding that he could not understand why he had not been welcomed into the community.

“There was people protesting, throwing bottles, hit my truck, hit numerous other vehicles, people yelling, yelling racial slurs,” he insisted.

Angela Oliver said that she was angry because the Confederate flag parade had come to Petersburg as a “peaceful ride.”

“People throwing bottles at our vehicles, our property that we worked for,” she lamented.

The horror. It’s like those people dented their hearts.

Chris Oliver also said that he feels ill-served by the Petersburg police, who said that they didn’t have enough evidence to catch the bottle-throwers. Have these people never heard of forensic science? Also, what about the hate crime aspect of all this?

“The racial slurs are really what hurt me,” Oliver remarked. “You know, it’s uncalled for. There’s no need for that in today’s society.”

Yr Wonkette doesn’t even want to think about how much money this poor sad neckbearded bucketload of stupid is going to collect in the inevitable GoFundMe to repair a small dent in the side of his goddamned pickup.

It is not known whether the Olivers felt that the abuse they suffered was on a par with the marchers at Selma, who were beaten senseless with nightsticks, or if it was more akin to the children of Birmingham being hit with firehoses that could strip the bark off trees. Given that their vehicle — their property, that they had worked for! — suffered an actual dent, we feel safe in saying that they no doubt experienced a level of fear commensurate with that felt by James Chaney, Andrew Goodman, and Michael Schwerner, whose station wagon was also harmed in a similar 1964 incident.

    Giving them water was kind of a Jesus-y thing to do, as I see it.

    • Antimassacree

      And neckbeard turned that water into whine. Even Jesusier!

      • JustPixelz

        He walked up to jug, touched the top with his hand. The water changed to a deep red, almost black color. He invited someone to taste it. “It’s wine!”

        He repeated this again and again. Sometimes people tasted before and after. Water. Wine. Again and again. Water. Wine. The converted jugs unmiraculously disappeared pretty quickly.

        “Yeah, but he changed it all into Merlot,” says Martin. “What a tragic waste of water!”

    What do think the chances are that he’s got a “black friend”?

    • Keziri

      They always got 1 black friend, who suspects they are slightly bigoted but tries to befriend them anyway. They only tell their dog whistle bigoted jokes when said friend is not around. Hell, depending on the black person, they might even dog whistle the jokes in front of them because they think there is a “pass” for them for having a black friend. They only call this friend around when they need help with some sort of labor work, and might even have some beers with them after. They keep that 1 black friend just so they can claim “not racist”. They might even actually like said friend a little bit, but not enough to stop displaying a flag that hurts them. Also if said friend is married, they’ll claim the spouse despite not really even knowing them, just because they are linked to the friend. These are the ones first to say “But one of my closest friends is black!”. Just cause you’ve got some cows you love on your farm don’t mean you stopped eating hamburgers and steaks.

  • Angry_Cop

    A water bottle? Shit, Mr. “My Family Tree Does Not Fork” Dumbass ought to count his blessings. Those folks were being nice. They ought to have used bricks.

      True and not true. If they had used bricks, those phuckers would have deserved it, but if they had used them, they would have got the provocation they were looking for and would just call the police and play victims just like they did, crying about a ding in their truck that was probably already there. Don’t take the bait from these jackasses.

    It would be interesting to confront this fella with the notion we’ve been hearing recently that the confederate flag is a symbol of racist Democrats, since I would imagine he considers himself to be neither racist nor Democrat.

    We are just here on a peaceful ride. Showing our overt racism for all the world to see. Don’t these negrah’s know their place here in the south. Amazing when black people treat you the same way you have treated them for generations and you don’t like it.

        You don’t need to be embarassed of yourself. Every culture has asshats.

      Christ is also tired of them. He has vowed not to come back until “the assholes stop being assholes”.

    • JustPixelz

      I’m in. What is your GoFundMe link?

    • JustPixelz

      Back when I lived in the ‘burbs, an older woman down the street put a rope festooned with orange ribbons across her driveway to stop people from turning around. She was in the middle of the block so I’m unclear why she thought anyone would want to use her driveway for that. Anyway, whenever she left her house, she’d back out of the garage, get out to unhitch the rope, get back in the car, back out into the road, get out, re-hitch the rope, get in and drive away. Then the reverse procedure when she got home. We called her “Ribbon Lady”.

    • Antimassacree

    I hope someone thought to recycle the bottles, or put the good ones up to re-use on the next ride day.

    • Blank Ron

      I can guarantee that that idea did not occur to anyone in the ‘ride.’ Recycling’s for them dam lie-bruls.

  • JustPixelz

    This is progress! Fifty years ago it was police turning firehoses on the negroes. Now it’s African-Americans throwing half-liter bottles at cars. Another fifty years and it will be Muslim-Americans handing out Perrier to Christians (in the FEMA camps, duh!)

    • Catstro

      Will it be those tiny little cans of lime Perrier? I love them but they’re too expensive to justify buying very often and they NEVER go on sale. I think I would be willing to endure FEMA camp for a steady supply of those.

    So, they DON’T understand that some people are offended by the flag?

    • clubseal

      I think it’s obvious that they do understand that, and it’s the reason they did it – to provoke a reaction that confirms their fantastical ideas about being oppressed.

  • clubseal

    Sounds stupid on both sides.
    Sorry, but you have no right to assault someone because they are exercising their right to express themselves, no matter how stupid that expression is.
    Here’s what it accomplished: Cletus T. Sisterfucker here went home with his 30 pack of Natural Ice, patted himself on the back of his Confederate flag t-shirt and said, “Well golly, we sure showed them. Let’s do it again cuz we just validated our feelings of being oppressed.”

    • Jen_Baker_VA

      Oh I don’t know. Tossing a plastic water bottle at a truck is not really assulting someone. I think it might be misdomenor vandelism, if that, no time just retribution.

      edit: or restitution.
      Or maybe with the way this guy was hyperventillating, ressucitation. One of them Re words

      • clubseal

        I was under the impression that assault is generally just an act intended to inflict harm, regardless of whether or not harm was inflicted. The bigger point here is that responding to these idiot rednecks is only going to make things worse.

        • How will it make things worse? If its kept to a fairly low level, but is consistent, perhaps these assholes will stop thinking they get to fly the flag with impunity.

          • clubseal

            They do, though, don’t they? The codification of our personal rights in this country guarantees that they can fly whatever idiotic flag they wish. There is no such guarantee for committing a crime in response. Maybe what you want is more violence. Fine. I don’t, and I don’t see how responding to these idiots will restrict, rather than fuel them.

          • You are taking this very hard. Maybe you should sit down for a while.

            There are two possible outcomes for a confederate flag rally that goes unchallenged. 1) The Neo-Confederates are confirmed in their belief that they did not lose the war, and that minorities and liberals are too cowardly to fight back for control of public spaces and public life. 2) They manufacture an incident and brag about their courage. There isn’t another outcome.

            As for what people chose to do when attacked, in their own neighborhoods, with a hostile gesture like the flying of the flag of treason in defence of slavery and segregation? Well–I’m not in a position to lecture anyone and I might have chosen differently. I’m not a violent person. But the South is violent–always has been. White and Black southern culture share a propensity towards violence based on a martial code, an honor based code, in which people have to fight back or be considered conquored by the agressor. I can’t fault people for not being willing to take this crap any longer. I think African Americans have been extremely patient with white people who don’t take their concerns and their issues seriously. People are just sick and tired of these neoconfederate assholes. And I don’t blame them.

          • clubseal

            So now a gesture is “an attack.” That’s a good stretch.
            I understand that I have the unpopular opinion on this, but I believe that the Bill of Rights is sacred, and that it protects even idiotic and bigoted speech.

          • jmk

            I see… dragging that POS rag through a predominately black community is a “gesture,” but throwing a water bottle at it – and given the surprised when it landed, I think we can safely call it a gesture – is an “assault”?

            The “gesture” these mouthbreathers engaged in was a deliberate reminder of a time in which people flying that flag terrorized and oppressed people like the inhabitants of the town through which they deliberately drove. They have to know what the “gesture” meant to the town they drove through….yet they did it anyway. On purpose.

            The water-bottle-thrower seems to have acted out of impulse, using a handy object to express disdain for the message the mouthbreather convoy was deliberately expressing. Given that, and the fact that the number of people injured or killed or terrorized by flying water bottles has, over the course of our nation’s history, been low, it’s a bit disconcerting for you to characterize THAT as “assault” and the deliberate shoving of a symbol of oppression and fear in the faces of a community as a “gesture.”

            This isn’t Skokie… these mouthbreathers weren’t denied their right to free expression. If they had been, I’d see this differently…but the truth is that they looked to provoke fear and they got only a water bottle in response.

          • clubseal

            Your points are understood, and I’m not in full disagreement – I just disagree on some aspects. So it goes.

          • The flying of the confederate flag is literally–not figuratively–a terrorist act. Especially at this point in time. Especially in the context of drive by, armed, convoys of white people. It is meant to convey nothing but a terrorizing memory of lynchings, burnings, rapes, and killings of black people in the South. So, yes, a “gesture” can be “an attack.” Obviously. As for the Bill of Rights show me where these asshole bubbas had their right of free speech abridged by the government? Precisely nowhere. This has nothing to do with the First Amendment. Stop pretending that it does.

          • clubseal

            If you define the flying of any flag as a terrorist act, are you not asking that it be abridged by the government?

            I brought up the freedom of expression solely as a way to compare the two acts – one being protected speech, the response being a criminal act. I apologize if that wasn’t clear, but I was not arguing that the government in any way abridged their rights.

          • No, I’m not asking that it be abridged by the government. I’m talking about the real world implications of flying that flag and of acts of terrorism. A terrorist act is one that an individual, group, or government engages in meant to bring terror to a civilian population. Flying the confederate flag is a symbol of the intent to carry the reign of terror that was the Confederacy into our everyday lives–to reinstitute slavery, repression, and extra-judicial violence. These guys want to have it both ways: to fly the flag as a demonstration of rage and hate and also to pretend that it doesn’t communicate that message to everyone. I fail to see any need to opt into this fantasy. The Flag is a communicative act and what it communicates is pretty damned clear. Like cross burning we should outlaw it but since we haven’t I’m not asking government to act on it (yet) but I see no reason that individuals and communities can’t point this out over and over and over, with increasing vehemence. At any rate: they are going to.

          • clubseal

            As I’ve told others, I agree with some of what you’ve said, but not all. Presumably we’ve reached the point where there won’t be any give either way, and I can walk away with some new perspective you’ve shown me.

          • Fair enough. I agree with your basic perspective which is that its silly to respond to these people with violence. Pointing and laughing, public contempt, is more effective and leads to less harm for everyone. But I think its not my call because I’m not being directly menaced by the flag and the people flying it. And let us not make any mistake about it–these dopes in these cars are nothing but tools but the CCC, the GOP, and many low level paramilitary organizations are pretty damned dangerous.

          • Rick Gardner

            agreed – very astute .

        • Jen_Baker_VA

          The key word there would be “intended” I am thinking. There was obviously no intention to inflict harm, just screw with the rubes.
          From the very reaction (voices) on the vid it sounds as if the throwers were quite surprised (and rather pleased) that it went BOOM.
          Also, this does not give them any fuel. They purposefully went in to a very black neighborhood for their “peaceful ride” fully expecting to start an out right riot and all they got were some water bottles and bad words. They’re the laughing stock of their own movement right now.

          Not responding will certainly cause these fucks to behave better. If by better you mean more emboldened.

          • clubseal

            If you’ve ever watched Fox News for more than a second, you should understand that these types of assholes feed off of negative response.

    • Its not a well thought out response, sure. Its what we in the parenting biz call a “natural consequence” of a very stupid act. I don’t applaud gravity when it drags me down, but I need to expect it. Ditto for these confederate assholes. The smart thing to do would be for counter protestors to be ready with enormous American Flags and signs saying “We Kicked Your Asses in 1865 and we will do it Again Any Day of the Week. Get Out Of Your Cars and Sit A Spell and Find Out How Hard.”

      • Jen_Baker_VA

        Sign too long. Needs to be shorter and catchier.
        Just “We kicked your ass once and we can do it again” ought to do it

        • I was thinking of billboard size signs.

          • willi0000000

            ooooohhh that could work well then :D You can put it next to the Richmond sign

      • clubseal

        I think that a natural consequence of counter protesters saying that would be a brawl. That doesn’t sound like a better outcome to me.

    • Dee Andee

      Somehow, I feel that ANY reaction from the townspeople would have convinced them of that–they were already sure they were oppressed, hence the stupid fucking parade of derp. Or, they’re very disappointed they didn’t at least get a superficial wound. That really would have made them martyrs!

      • MsC

        Parade of Derp is the perfect name for a Ted Nugent/Kid Rock concert.

    • Virginia Dreaming

      Clubseal, I think you are missing one small fact. For many of us in the south, that flag is pretty much a threat. The association between the KKK and the rebel battle flag is not theoretical but real. And a parade of pickups flying their battle flags coming into a neighborhood is a threatening action, not an expression of free speech. That is a big part of what happened here and a big part of why people threw things to drive them away.

      • clubseal

        If you can show me where, in any law, your argument would hold up as a way to restrict this expression, I would agree, and gladly. But as long as most speech is protected in this country, I don’t think you’ll be able to.

        • Virginia Dreaming

          Free speech does not include threats. Going to people who have been harmed by someone carrying that flag and waving it at them could be considered a threat by a reasonable person.
          I live close to this area. There are many people who fly that flag on their property. I don’t like it, but it is their right. But if they came to my house to fly the flag, that is not free speech anymore, that is a threatening action.

          • clubseal

            What I’m saying is: show me a court decision that supports the criminalization of flying a flag on a public street. I’m not denying that it’s possible, but I personally don’t know of any such cases in the humongous sea of court decisions.
            I truly do understand your argument, especially the reactions that the flag evokes. It’s a shitty situation all around, but without some proof that the rednecks’ pity parade was illegal, I can’t agree with an assertion that it isn’t protected speech or that the right response is violence.

          • Virginia Dreaming

            There are plenty of legal precedents about hate speech. The matter would be, does a reasonable person consider this particular flag to be hate speech. In this case, the answer is yes. A large organized group of people took that flag into an area where many of the people could reasonably regard it as a threatening action. If they had gotten a parade permit, then maybe I would consider it to be free speech, but they didn’t. You have to consider the context of their actions, not just the theoretical right to free speech.

          • clubseal

            I think most hate speech laws exist in Canada and Europe, though. I agree on the permit thing. Even small gatherings at our county courthouse require permission, so 100 yokels demonstrating organized asshattery should require something to that effect.

          Unlike some other commenters here.

          *cough*

          • clubseal

            I am jealous. And I would be tut-tutting white people for doing the same thing. But you’ve got a ways yet to go in years and understanding to appreciate that, I guess.

          • mattand

            Well, a quick start would be knocking of the whole “All responses are equal”, everyone-is-to-blame libertarian-esque horseshit.

            Your “Shame on you, black water bottle hurlers” admonishment hinges heavily on Capt. Bigot VonNeckbeard’s whining that “I was just flying a flag! I wasn’t hurting anyone. This is still Murica!”

            Maybe I’m wrong, but your comments have the ring of someone who’s never had to put up with that kind shit most of their lives; aka white privilege.

          • clubseal

            My larger point is that you don’t have a right to harm someone else because they’ve hurt your feelings, or even if they express views that are repugnant. You aren’t denying that, you’re simply attacking me and are completely blind to the fact that believing in someone’s right to expression does not equal support for the views they express.
            Maybe the next time I’m at a Veteran’s Day parade and I’m angry about some asshole standing up and telling me that the thousands we’ve killed in Afghanistan and Iraq were killed to protect my freedoms, I’ll throw something at him and the whole world will be a better place.
            I’m not so bathed in “white privilege” that I fail to understand why people who have been knocked down and spit upon for generations would react negatively to stupid assholes coming to their town and being stupid assholes, but I don’t have your enlightened view as to how this particular response made the world a better place, or changed the past.

          • mattand

            Yeah, well again, from where I’m sitting (and I’m guessing the other people who are criticizing you as well), your whole thesis hinges on the notion that Saint Forgot My White Sheets and his merry band of Sore Losers were merely peacefully assembling.

            Anything’s possible. However, you don’t fucking drive through a black neighborhood, less than a month after nine black Americans were fucking slaughtered in a church by someone with an allegiance to the Traitors’ Flag, as part of a peaceful assembly.

            You do it because you want the excuse to start a riot, possibly with the knowledge that the police will take your side, regardless of the shit you did to provoke the incident.

            So when you come in waving your “For SHAME, minority bottle hurlers! You hurt the 1st Amendment’s feelings” Magic Balance flag, yeah; it’s gonna come off like your white privilege Snuggie is a little too tight.

          • mattand

            In other words, (and I should have said this sooner) you, my friend, are context challenged. Particularly with your example of going all Tasmanian Devil at a veteran’s parade.

          • clubseal

            You do have a penchant for snark, which I applaud. “Saint Forgot My White Sheets and his merry band of Sore Losers” has me lol-ing.
            You and I will have to agree to disagree, I think, on just about everything else. I will never be convinced that violence (no matter how small) is an appropriate response to someone expressing themselves. That includes what happened in Selma just as much as it includes what happened here. Yes, they are completely different contexts and completely different levels of severity, but I won’t abandon that principle because it might be convenient.
            And how dare you suggest that I would wear such an abomination as a Snuggie. I would never.

      I have to disagree with the hornet’s nest analogy. That is the same fallacious logic that is used in defending someone who rapes a scantily-clad woman because “she was asking for it, and should have known that dressing like that could get her raped.” Whoever threw the water bottle may not have liked the message the flag parade was sending, but it was still on them to control their response to it to something more civilized. Resorting to violence, even in the form of a thrown water bottle, is not a valid response.

      • Kat Anyperson

        *facepalm* Oh boy…

        This was a large group of white people driving through black neighborhoods with the intention of instilling terror. There is no reason for them to drive through a 77% black neighborhood with the Confederate flag in those numbers beyond that purpose. None. This exact tactic has been used by the Klan to intimidate blacks for generations now (which is why I referenced the Lumbee) and assaults/murders of blacks around such rallies are common.

        Yes, assault is assault. Assault shouldn’t happen. IMO, this was the purpose of their march- to scare/harass some black folks enough that some angry dumb kid would do what angry dumb kids do… and then act like victims afterwards. They are trying to change the discussion from slavery (and the kind of harassment that these folks were engaged in) to that of angry black people throwing bottles.

        Last summer already demonstrated that most media would rather further the narrative of the angry, violent, dangerous black youth than the asshole white guy. While you can say that is assumption on my part, a quick check back in on these nutjobs finds them planning 2 more marches and trying to frame the discussion in exactly the context that I suspected they would.

          You can shove your condescending “facepalm” right where it belongs. I am no more a fan of the confederate flag than you are, but displaying it does not call for a violent response. If you truly believe that someone exercising their First Amendment rights deserves to be greeted with a violent action, then you are simply wrong. I happen to think those displaying the confederate flag are hicks and probably racist, but that does not justify violence of any sort to be used against them.

          • Kat Anyperson

            You know what, I had a really nice, long, polite response typed out but after reading your posts again… fuck it.

            The facepalm was over my frustration thinking how to reply. I’m sorry you felt condescended, but given that I never once insulted you or talked down to you, I think you did a good job of inventing that butt hurt yourself.

            “If you truly believe that someone exercising their First Amendment
            rights deserves to be greeted with a violent action, then you are simply
            wrong”

            A good thing I condemned violence repeatedly then, isn’t it?

            I gave a much more nuanced reply about the violence of what those KKK nutjobs are doing in terms of harassment and intimidation, but you’ve more or less ignored anything that you couldn’t turn into a moral lecture.

            Yes yes, you are a good liberal. You’re rude and assumptive, but you are a “good liberal” for condemning violence.

          • LegionOfDo

            If your intention was to prove that you’re an asshole, then you’ve done a great job.

          • Kat Anyperson

            If your intention was to prove that you are a butt-hurt child who cannot apologize after making accusatory, assumptive remarks attacking someone, then you’ve done a great job.

            I already apologized despite the fact that I used no derogatory or condescending language in that post. While I acknowledge(d) and respect the fact that you felt hurt by it, ultimately you jumped to conclusions and lost your temper.

            I explained my meaning. Most reasonable adults could find some way to communicate afterwards that didn’t involve calling the other person an asshole- apologizing for your assumption being one such possible option. You also failed to discuss the contents of any of my posts and seemingly ignored my condemnation of any form of violence on several occasions so you could continue to pontificate.

            That’s not the mark of someone looking for a mature, logical discussion- it’s the mark of someone with an axe to grind.

            I am not your whetstone.

            Seek help and fuck off.

          • LegionOfDo

            You sure do like to make erroneous assumptions. I never lost my temper. I called you out on your fallacious hornet’s nest analogy and explained why it is an invalid argument. You just went off the rails from there, and you are now doubling down. It’s clear that you are not capable of a civil discussion, so I shall now dismiss you as a lunatic.

          • Kat Anyperson

            You acted like an accusatory, assumptive jerk. When I called you on it, you got even nastier. You are now completely ignoring your own behavior, have abandoned any attempt at rational discourse and are wasting all of your time and energy verbally abusing me. Telling you to fuck off wasn’t even enough to make you think “gee, maybe I should move on to something else”.

            You know who does that shit? Bullies and trolls.

            Bugger off.

          • LegionOfDo

            Your face is a lovely shade of insane.

          • Kat Anyperson

            Thank you for verifying that this is indeed what you were after- the opportunity to act like a bully.

            Again, fuck off.

          • LegionOfDo

            Just pointing out that you are clearly insane and this is why your conversations always go south. I hope you get the help you so clearly need.

          • Kat Anyperson

            I’m sorry, but I don’t put much stock in the “clinical” opinion of random internet jackasses, particularly those who are hellbent on dismissing me via ad homs.

            You started this, cupcake. If you aren’t mature enough to apologize for blowing up at me over your own assumption, at least have the good sense to walk the fuck away.

            Fuck. Off.

          • LegionOfDo

            I never apologize for being right.

          • Kat Anyperson

            That must be terribly convenient for you.

            How many times do I need to say “fuck off” before you take the hint?

            Are you bored? Lonely? Had a bad day? Have nothing better to do with your life than verbally abuse people on disqus?

          • LegionOfDo

            I already dismissed you a while ago, but you just keep going. This is all on you :)

          • As fascinating as this conversation is, time to wrap it up, you two…

          • Kat Anyperson

            So now you are blaming me for *you* being an assumptive, verbally abusive asshole. You, who brought up how rape victims are blamed for violence against them, are blaming ME for your behavior.

            I was right. You really are a bully and a hypocrite.

            Fuck off.

          • Hi Kat.

            Let’s be done here.

          • Kat Anyperson

            Wow, really? Me?

            Yeep. I’m done all right.

          • No, not just you. I asked the both of you in a different reply, but you didn’t seem to notice it.

          • Kat Anyperson

            Didn’t see it when I checked earlier, so thanks for the info.

  • AnOuthouse

    I am so embarrassed to be a redneck cracker now.

    • goonemeritus

      Don’t be, someone needs to eat all those ham-biscuits.

  • splashy79

    Notice the phrase “that they worked for” which of course implies that the POC don’t work for anything, so shouldn’t harm something that was worked for.

    • Independently Yours

      Yeah, I noticed that. }:(

    • Reddishrabbit

      I thought they just meant it wasn’t the pickup they stoled. It is not as nice as the one they bought, so the don’t use it for special occasions.

    • Lord-Nash

      “That they worked for” is only a slightly smaller red flag than “I pay my bills.”

  • Bitter Scribe

    As Wanda Sykes said in another context:

    “He’s not only an asshole, he’s a stupid asshole, because he’s on TV talking about it!”

  • Playonwords

    Poor little racist mites, how lucky for them that the people they were insulting were civilised Americans obviously beyond taking lessons from Foreign Minister Molotov.

    • Z-Bird

      Now, to be fair, they might not be racist. In all likelihood, they’re both just really stupid.

      • Barley_Brains

        Stupid does not Trump racism. The go together like peas and carrots.

        • Blank Ron

          Or peas and guacamole.
          (Are we still making that joke?)

      • Celtic_Gnome

        Our property that we worked for? Nope. Racist.

  • myexisinthetrunk

    …so, do Chris and Angela have matching fainting couches in the back of their pick-up? I thought I heard some pearls being clutched during the video.

    • Wombat

      I suspect that’s for a better class of racist who would file these jerks under the heading of Not Our Kind, Dear.

  • jviscont1

    can we amend the ‘lost cause’ trope to “lost ’cause we’re stupid”

  • The Molten Soul

    Wait a minute…these dicks call it a run and then drive their trucks?!?

    • snigsy

      Well, yah.

    • ViveLaRes

      When you’re a lard-ass redneck, yes this is “run.”

  • James Christopher Owen

    Still waiting to hear what Southern-heritage goodness BESIDES slavery is represented by the hate rag…

    Anyone? Bueller?

    • Barley_Brains

      Well, lets see: total male dominance over women, environmental degradation, genocide of Native Americans, and Mint Juleps with too much sugar.

      • Bren

        You left out sister humping.

  • ViveLaRes

    I am happy to report that, as far as I saw, the Treason-Flag Run in St. Augustine consisted of ONE doofus in a POS pickup, and he turned off before crossing the bridge into the less-crackerish part of town. Pussy.

  • Cismontane

    Where I come from, a “Run” is done on foot, usually with a number of other generally healthy runners wearing numbers, occasionally drinking from water bottles. It is not done by obese people in pickup trucks with gun racks and treason flags. hehe.

  • Pugsandcoffee

    Can’t we just chain people like this to the rusty, “decorative” tractor in their front line until they are voted out through exposure?

  • Celtic_Gnome

    “People throwing bottles at our vehicles, our property that we worked for,” she lamented.

    Dog-Whistle Alert!

  • “The racial slurs are really what hurt me,” Oliver remarked. “You know, it’s uncalled for. There’s no need for that in today’s society.”

    Even though you were flying a big one on the back on your pickup?

    • Wombat

      Something tells me he tends to refer to the average resident of Petersburg with a term rhyming with bigger on the regular. It’s just this feeling I get.

  • Keziri

    Everyone knows what the flag really stands for. They knew what they were doing when they put several on their vehicles. They knew what they were doing when they choose the route. The only thing they made a mistake on was banking that they’d get attacked so they could call the cops and get everyone shot up. Now all they can do is point at a ding on their truck that may or may not have even been there to begin with and try to get someone they purposely provoked, arrested. No one will ever give up who threw the bottles. If these morons could get their hands on the Southern states declarations for seceding, I bet they’d pour whiteout all over it and feign dumb just like they did in that interview. I also caught on to the “our property we worked for” bit as well. #NotGr8B8M8, #DogWhistleAlert

  • mcnc

    This was said about the Gellar thing in Texas..

    Assholes set a trap for assholes, shocked when they catch one.

    Assholes….

  • Lord-Nash

    When someone threw a water bottle at their pickup. AND DENTED IT! “My initial reaction was, ‘What the hell?’” Oliver recalled.”

    Oliver was also quoted as saying, “Well, thank goodness they weren’t close enough to my home where they could have hit my pile o’tires and my busted refrigerator in the yard or the rusted out chassis of my 68 Impala.”

  • “The racial slurs are really what hurt me. You know, it’s uncalled for. There’s no need for that in today’s society,” he said while flying a GIANT CONFEDERATE FLAG.

  • sonaliraq

    IT WAS JUST LIKE 4 LITTLE GIRLS BEING BLOWN UP IN A CHURCH!! Oh teh poor ignorant rednecks.

  • Bren

    I just cannot understand why these Confederate supporters still exist. Damn near every one I see on screen are the kind of people that nobody would ever want to fuck. ……… Oh shit I forgot for a moment, it’s the South, all that sister and cuzzin humping. The family that play together stay together sorta stuff.
