Here’s the latest hate crime involving the Confederate flag:
“ROCHESTER, Minn. – A 32-year-old man is recovering after police say he was assaulted late last week.
Rochester authorities say the victim and his 13-year-old niece were in the parking lot of Meadow Park Apartments when a group of Somali males came up to them. The group started giving the girl a hard time for wearing a cap with a confederate flag on it, calling it racist. When the 32-year-old uncle stepped in and told the group to “re-educate” themselves, he was knocked to the ground and assaulted, according to police.
The victim suffered injuries to his forehead. So far, no arrests have been made. …”
What catches our attention here is that this is the third anti-Southern hate crime involving the Confederate Battle Flag outside the South in less than two weeks. In Columbus, Ohio, there was a brutal home invasion that ended in shootings and stabbings at a home that was flying the Confederate Battle Flag. In South Bend, Indiana, a White man was shot twice in the back and the mouth over the Confederate Battle Flag.
Notably, the perpetrators in this case were Somali immigrants who have only been recently transplanted in Minnesota by the US federal government’s insane refugee resettlement policy. Their ancestors were never slaves in the South. Instead, this attack seems to have been inspired solely by the leftwing media’s “climate of hate” which has been whipped up against the Confederate Battle Flag.
Note: The SPLC has condemned the C of CC for spreading a “false narrative of a victimized white majority under siege by allegedly violent people of color in the United States.”
