An Hour Later It Was Back Up Again

The Left is getting moist panties over someone named Bree Newsome who clumsily bravely climbed a flagpole and took down the Confederate Battle Flag from the grounds of the South Carolina Statehouse. She was promptly arrested by some bored looking state troopers when she returned to the ground. So was some guy who was helping her.

“You cannot get to me with hatred and oppression and violence,” Newsome shouted from the top of the pole, according to video. “I come against you in the name of God. This flag comes down today.”

An hour later the flag was back up again.

    I sympathize with her impatience (I can be impatient too), but she needs to let the system work. After all, it is moving in her favor.

    • DeniseVB says:

      I saw some chatter today about how the flag became a symbol and target of White Hatey-Hate, because they weren’t allowed to riot and burn down Charleston. DeRay and Al were blown off big time. By gum, attack a FLAG then ! This is like an OWS reboot.

      Miss Bree isn’t very smart if she doesn’t understand the process (cough, Dems, cough) that put that flag in place. It took Gov. Nikki (R) to take it down, or suggest her legislature repeal the bill that put it there in the first place. Now it’s in the state reps court, and I’m sure they’re hearing from their constituents…..

      You know what offends me more about the “south”. Those freeze dried (real) baby alligators they sell in the gift shops. Just eww.

      • lyn says:

        That’s very interesting, and I haven’t seen one of those little gators in years. They are creepy.

        • DeniseVB says:

          They were sold at gas stations too. I do miss my son living in FtLaLaDale, my favorite I-95 exit was at St.Augustine and the best sandals I’ve ever worn were made from recycled tires. $5/pair. They were in barrels with giant sized tags 5-6-7-8-9-10. I grabbed all the 7’s my last trip, on my last pair now….and panicking😉

      • Myiq2xu says:

        They used to sell live ones.

        • DeniseVB says:

          …and brought back north, and die in the freezing waters or sewer systems when they’re “humanely” released or flushed. Or in NYC’s Chinatown district, eaten.

    • Myiq2xu says:

      My take is she was engaged in “Look at me!” activism. It doesn’t achieve much but it’s really popular with today’s special snowflakes.

      • DeniseVB says:

        ….and the media, she’s everywhere. If you read the timeline (downstairs) they put her with Rosa Parks and MLK. Now I want to know more about her😉

      • left_VA_&_dems_for_TX says:

        Look at ME while my friends film ME to post on the internets so I get a bunch of hits is so much easier than petitioning their legislators, attending town hall meetings, and engaging others within their communities with thoughtful and considerate debate. Special snowflakes don’t really want to work up a sweat – they might melt. Apparently democracy in action today is how many hits you get on youtube and the number of followers you have on twitter.

    • 1539days says:

      Which system is that? The one with the Constitution, laws, checks and balances isn’t doing this. Executive fiat, judicial activism and partisan media hacks are.

    Elvis Presley – An American Trilogy – I wish I was in Dixieland

    • DeniseVB says:

      That used to be the state song of Virginia. I’m surprised it hasn’t been scrubbed from youtube😦

      Again, I recommend James McPherson’s “Battle Cry of Freedom” (which won the Pulitzer), and gushed over by WaPo and NYT as the best ever book written about the Civil War, ever, ever and ever ! It was NOT just about slavery.

  3. Props to her for observing safety measures.

    Interesting that she quoted scripture throughout. If gays bring progs back to marriage and black activists bring them back to church, I wonder what happens after that?

    • DeniseVB says:

      I gave her props for mentioning God too. Now I want to know if she’s an oppressed local gal or a Soros bunny ?

      • Jadzia says:

        That stuff’s not cheap! A harness is about $75, a locking carabiner is about $25; a good rope at least $100.

    • elliesmom says:

      Has there been an upsurge in the number of marriages in the states that have had legal same-sex marriage for awhile? It’s been legal in MA since 2004, and the overall number of marriages went down in the first five years. I don’t have the stats for after that handy.

      • DeniseVB says:

        If I were gay and wanted to get married, I’d hire Nathan Lane. That Modern Family story arc about Mitch and Cam’s wedding is the most fun I’ve had watching network tv since Lucy’s baby was born in the 50’s😉

        In the past 20+ years I haven’t been to a traditional church wedding, I’ve been to beaches, museums, parks…..all fun!

      • Actually, the overall stats went up and stayed up in MA after legalization. There’s not enough data in other states to see what will happen, but legalization in most states has initially resulted in a spike in marriage.

        See here and here. The second link is a table from this article.

        • elliesmom says:

          Not according to the US census date for 2004-2009, the first five years after same-sex marriage became legal.

          • That chart doesn’t show 2004-2008. It shows 2000 and 2009. But the raw numbers do correspond in 2009 to the chart I cited, so at least we’ve got some corroboration in the data sets we’re working with. I’d be curious to see what the Census shows for 2005, the year my chart shows the spike.

          • elliesmom says:

            While I would expect a spike in the number of marriages in 2005, the year after gay marriage was made legal, there doesn’t seem to be a sustained effect on the number of heterosexual marriages. Five years out marriage is becoming less popular no matter what happened in the middle. My argument with you isn’t over the numbers. I just don’t see legal same-sex marriage being much of an impetus for heterosexuals getting married. Except for the occasional SJW who refused to get married until everybody could, getting married isn’t contagious. There are certain passages in life when you see a flurry of friends getting married. Like after college graduation. I don’t know of anyone who got married because someone else was. Maybe people do, but why would they be influenced any more by a gay couple than a straight one?
            I think it will be the same for gay and lesbian couples nationally. We’ll see a flurry of weddings in the next year, and then the numbers of same-sex marriages will level off. If you can find me a guy who proposes to his girlfriend because his gay friends are getting married, I’ll bow to your superior wisdom.

          • 1539days says:

            That’s based on where the people were married, not where they were from. Nevada and Hawaii have HUGE marriages per capita numbers.

          • elliesmom says:

            But people in MA had no reason to go out of state for a same-sex marriage so the number of “vacation weddings” should be pretty constant for those years.

          • 1539days says:

            Even the marketwatch table shows for MA hetero marriages were trending down even if gay marriages are only leveling off.

          • Elliesmom, I’m not asserting superior wisdom, and I apologize if that’s how I sound. It’s not my intention. We can’t settle the debate tonight, and I’m aware that I’m speculating based on incomplete and negligible data patterns. We’ll just have to see how it goes. PLease feel free to remind in a couple of years how wrong I was if that’s the case.🙂

          • Myiq2xu says:

            Any data that doesn’t fit the PC narratives is either ignored or discredited as biased.

        • 1539days says:

          You linked to Andrew Sullivan? I guess he was done with Trig Palin conspiracies that day.

          • While Andrew Sullivan is no expert on Sarah Palin or the origination of her offspring, I do think it’s fair to say he is more expert in gay issues.

    • Anthony says:

      Props also for some bad ass gear. She was well prepared. Soros all the way.

    Are you sure that woman was Bree, I just thought Rachel had her braids put back in. It is really awful to see how the evil, racist police of South Carolina roughed her up….

    • 49erDweet says:

      Yeah. When cops get bored by what you’re doing it sorta takes the fun out of it. Just sayin’.

      • left_VA_&_dems_for_TX says:

        And lowers your hits on youtube and twitter followers and likes. My guess is that it was humid and hot as all hell and they just wanted her to be done so they could get a cold coke and some AC – I know the feeling having moved down south to Texas.

    I’m a huge fan of “Rent”, here’s the movie clip(2005), Take Me Or Leave Me, love these ladies….I think its the engagement scene before they were married…..Jonathan Larson, the creator, died before opening night on Broadway, in 1996 at age 36 of aids. Not sure why I thought of this, but this past week seems more about politics and less about humans, compassion and tolerance. This scene, and the rest of the movie, taught me more about love than a gal shimmying up a flag post.


    • mothy67 says:

      Larsen did not die from AIDS. They think he had Marfan Syndrome he died suddenly from. an aortic dissection. I knew and worked with them all long before it moved to Broadway. That era of my life is quite surreal. I was the sole bartender at Le Boheme a small restaurant on Minetta Lane next to the Minetta Lane Theater. Rent is an adaptation of Le Boheme. He’d come in and we would chat. I have mentioned my employment there in the past here. A small French restaurant owned by an Iranian woman that got the building from her French husband after he set her on fire. She was an ordained minister with a boob job. I had a blast working there. Place was insane one block from the famous basketball court on West 4th. Dependent on the theater next door for business. She was such a tyrant and refused to use computers so she could fudge. Everything was done on paper. Waitresses would just walk out mid shift 100 people withvtickets for a show and no way of knowing what they ordered. Place took cash or AMEX only she made a guy once leave his socks, shoes, tie, jacket, shirt behind while he went to the cash machine. I would get fired every two weeks. Place was dysfunction incarnate. The only waiter she could keep was a 50 year old toothless gay drunk . french man that would pass out in the bathroom mid shift. I could not make this up. Her fake name was Pari and her pretend birthday was Bastille Day. I loved working for her everyday was an acid trip. She had a tenant with a rent controlled apartment in the Village paying 300/month. Place was rooftop and had a garden was in two parts with a beutiful outdoor walkway in between. 15,000 rent easily he paid less than 300. She accused him of running a child porn ring out of apartment. She still makes the news

      • My cousin died of aortic dissection. She was 8.5 months pregnant with twins. They survived; she didn’t. It was all very sad. They’re 13 y.o. now. The fam makes sure they know her as much as they can. She was a teacher and an inspiration. Just a bad way to go.

    Just chillaxin’ now. Thinking of the past week in Obamaland, this came to mind…..yeah, from The Phantom Menace, if you catch my drift😉

    • DeniseVB says:

      Happy Anniversary to me, met him in a gym🙂

      • Dora says:

        Is it really your anniversary? Well, congratulations then. Have a great day. Ask him to take you out dancing. 🙂

        BTW that’s one of my favorite movies. I sure hope there is nothing in it to offend anybody. I’d hate to see a great film like West Side Story banned by the PC Nazis.

        • leslie says:

          They most likely will ban it because a Jew wrote the score and another wrote the book. (And we know how the PC patrol loves the Jews.) And then there’s Shakespeare to complete the deal. (All white – no prattle)
          My father and Lenny (Bernstein) were poker buddies during WWII. This is one of my favorite musicals. In addition to those other wonderful music wonders of that time.
          Candide, Music Man, the King and I, Fiddler on the Roof, Camelot, and on and on and on.

          • Dora says:

            They were all wonderful productions. I think my favorite musical of all time is probably Fiddler of the Roof. I saw it on stage twice and I saw the movie a number of times. The music is great and the story sad.

        Happy Anniversary, Denise and Recon Marine Hubby!!

    • Mt.Laurel says:

      Are they going to go after treasure maps next? They always seem to have a big X.

      Will the Pittsburgh Pirates need to burn any flag with the logo that incorporates the crossed bats in the background behind the buccaneer?

      Inquiring minds want to know.

  11. votermom says:

    Hah. Black lives matter activist who had previously announced he would give $10000 and bail money to anyone who took the flag down is not paying.

    I wm remembering so much as a gay kid. I don’t mean represerion. I just had to survive so I put things away. I was 16 wearing bright blue levi’s corderoys. I was a dishwasherhad so much change in my pockets. He said I needed to improve my posture pulled me against him and was dry humping me. I fought back and my wages made noise. Hundreds of quarters echoing saved me. I was 16 and i remember him telling the school nurse I was gay. He tried to hold me down and pressed his erection against a minor but I became the freak. I was/am so white trash but I skipped a few grades and did ivy league on SATs. I felt real oppression when I eas going to a rich kids school and some doctor could hump me. I spilled so many quarters out of my pants.he stopped and then he told the nurse he tought I waa gay and disturbed. I was 16 had an IQ of 138 but I was rtreated like i had raped the doctor. I had to walk to take SAT’s and then walk home. I did very well. I had 1400 back in 1983 1600 was a perferct score and 1200 was ivy league. I took the test once and had to dodge traffic to get there i did not have prep classes. I paid for itvand did it on my own. I had to walk to the test site I did not even get breakfast. I was ignored at school. I was gay and very smart. They chose to ignore I missed 108 days my senior year but I graduated
