“You cannot get to me with hatred and oppression and violence. I come to do this in the name of God. This flag comes down today.”Taking her time to climb down the pole, she recited portions of PSALM 23 and other verses from the HOLY BIBLE. When she reached the bottom, State Police took the flag out of her hands and arrested her. Another activist, James Tyson, spotted Newsome at the bottom of the pole to make sure she didn’t fall.
“We didn’t see it fit to have the flag stand erect while the people who were massacred were laid to rest under it.”The group planned to keep the flag in a box without defacing it as the funerals for the victims are held this week. But State Police confiscated the flag immediately, and workers put it back up before 8 a.m. — plenty of time before a planned rally by Confederate flag supporters, including members of the Ku Klux Klan.
“For many — black and white — that flag was a reminder of systemic oppression and racial subjugation. We see that now.”The activist group FERGUSON ACTION, which calls on its supporters to “take action,” was formed following the killing last August of an unarmed 18-year-old Black FERGUSON, MO-resident MICHAEL BROWN Jr. by FERGUSON POLICE Officer DARREN WILSON.
“Man, look at this sh*t…They got a g*td*mn day for Confederate f*ck*ng flags. This is some b*llsh*t.”The trucks went by a gas station and were continuing through an intersection without stopping, thanks to the assistance from the local police who were blocking off the intersection.
“They got the roads blocked off for these f*ck*ng flags.”Shortly after noticing the police were assisting the pickup parade, the astute videographer also predicted the trucks were about to crash. He pivoted and turned his camera just in time to see his premonition come true.
”Boom! Boom! I got that!” He later added, ”God don’t like ugly. God don't like ugly.”WARNING!!! NSFW!!! VIDEO CONTAINS HARSH LANGUAGE!!!
