Woman Ignores Police Orders, Removes Confederate Flag From SC Statehouse

SC Governor Nikki Haley has called for the Confederate Flag to come down from the front of the South Carolina State House but for some reason the damn thing is still there.

A woman identified as “Bree” decided to take matters into her own hands, backed by the activist group ‘Blackbird’, early Saturday morning. She got halfway up the 30 foot flagpole in front of the state house when police told her come down. Bree ignored them and kept climbing to remove the flag.

Bree and another man who entered the wrought-iron fence surrounding the flag have been arrested.

The flag was removed hours before a rally of flag supporters was scheduled for later today.

Bree, today you are our hero and we salute you!
