When President Obama travelled to Oklahoma City on Wednesday night, he was never expecting to receive THIS reception!
According to The Blaze, Obama was met by a group of protesters waving Confederate flags.
“We don’t believe it’s a symbol of racism,” said Andrew Duncomb, who organized the protest and calls himself “the Black Rebel.”
“They’re blaming the racist problems on the flag and not on the real problems of America,” he added. “Through the race lies the people who carry and harbor the hate inside.”
Reports say that Duncomb wasn’t the only black person to participate in the protest, many others did as well. The Confederate flag has been facing liberal backlash ever since the Charleston church shooting a few weeks ago. Afterwards, Obama said the flag belongs in a museum, and that we need to remove it because we need to acknowledge that “the cause of slavery was wrong.”
Patriotic southerners disagree, however, and see the flag as a symbolism of southern pride. For them, the Confederate flag isn’t about racism at all. Instead, it’s about honoring where they come from.
Obama travelled to Oklahoma City to talk about economic development and the criminal justice system. We’re glad that these Oklahomans had the courage to take a stand against Obama, and let him know EXACTLY what they think of him!
