she starts fight, over a flag on the wall -which I don't see? is it actually a rug hanging up?-
and expects them to not get offended? like what do you expect when youstart recording people and are being bitchy lol


tbh I think the flag is the least of her worries


get this lady on some medicine, jesus


TRIGGERWARNING!!!!


I don't really like flags to begin with nor what the Confederate Flag stands for, but unless this was GENUINELY something to with her mental health then she definitely over reacted to it.

All flags deserve to fly somewhere, even third reich stuff. Even if it's just a museum, they're a part of history and should NEVER be censored. This is something that honestly stops me from labelling myself as a liberal because I'm an avid lover of history and anything to do with what's made our countries.

I hate the Union Jack to bits but I don't go around screaming about it being an imperialistic symbol and demanding people take it down because it's their right to fly the bloody thing.

"Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it" and all that.

Actually, "We learn from history that we do not learn from history.”

But how can we possibly learn from history when the liberals are so intent on erasing it?

There should be no problem hanging up whatever the hell you want to in your home or private business. It's a free country. People can make a their own decision to shop where they want, so this woman had no real reason to act the way she does. The men had no real reason to act like assholes and antagonize a crying woman either. It's pathetic for both parties.

Just remember the flag is a symbol of hate and treason. If you wear it in public, you look like an asshole.

That was an amazing video. I've read about experiments where psychologists got participants to "remember" an experience that never happened to them. The people could tell a story about the event, making up details they thought were true. When proved to them that they were wrong, the memory and emotions still felt real.

This lady does that on video. It's incredible to see. She sees something (flag), has an emotional reaction to it and weave a story around it to explain her emotional reaction (racists). She then adds to it with the men in the store being threatening (they are just standing there) and goes outside to flee.

The owner comes out, maybe to check the lady is OK, who knows, and just stands tens of metres away from her. The woman videos the man standing well away and is terrified, feeling like she's under threat, states he's coming over to her (he doesn't move).

I can't imagine what she thought when she watched her video back.

Worst thing about this woman was that one of the kids wasn't hers, she was babysitting another person's child when she pulled this shit.

She obviously thought that uploading the video to YouTube would be therapeutic.

Because as we all know, once you take a flag down everyone just magically forgets any and all things that happened surrounding said flag.

Knowing who's an asshole can only be a good thing. Let them cling to their symbols so the rest of the world knows not to take them seriously. Vive la First Amendment!

Did...did we not already have this thread? I'm having some serious deja vu here.

As I recall, the two that called her a bitch, etc, etc and followed her to the parking lot were actual store employees. So both were fired over this. Because the proper response to an annoying customer complaint is not giving her the finger and calling her a liberal whiny bitch. >.>

And yeah, no matter how annoying they may have found her, if you swear at a woman and her kids then follow her to the parking lot and mock her for crying you're a dickless asshole. If you're actually doing it while *on the job* as an employee at a store you're a dickless asshole and a god damn idiot.

It's not even the confederate flag crazy bitch it's the confederate battle flag. Here is the confederate flag:



It is actually the Confederate flag. You posted the first national flag of the confederacy, the one we typically think of as the confederate flag is the second national flag.

Hmm I guess the battle flag is the same thing without the white part. It's all the same shit though.


The battle flag became part of the second confederate flag but its still the battle flag. It was still flown by all those people dying for their "country". Kind of disrespectful to the dead to remove all instances of it.

This is the second confederate flag:



Gl. I remember a vague attempt at educating my fellow crunchies the instance of it being the battle flag, and 'blah blah blah but my feelins' is pretty much what you're going to get out of it.
