Missouri Woman Waving Confederate Flag Tells Group Of Protesters ‘I Will Teach My Grandkids To Hate You All’

A recent Black Lives Matter protest in Branson, Missouri was met with a 50-person crowd of Confederate flag waving counter-demonstrators.

One participant captured video of a heated moment.

The clip showed a woman sitting in the back of pickup truck. She wore a camouflage “Make America Great Again” hat and waved a Confederate flag as she screamed the following, drowning out the country music playing behind her:

“I will teach my grandchildren to hate you all.”

She then screamed, “Suck on this” before standing up, turning her back toward the protesters, and shimmying her flag back and forth across her back. She then wrapped the flag like a cape around her back.

The video ended with her pumping a fist and shouting support for the Ku Klux Klan that sounded like:

“KKK belief.”

The protest march began outside Dixie Outfitters, a clothing store in Branson, Missouri. Black Lives Matters demonstrators chose that location due to a 2015 discovery the store owner had ties to the Ku Klux Klan, the Springfield News-Leader reported.

The News-Leader went on to report that the approximately 65 Black Lives Matter protesters were met by around 50 counter-demonstrators, including the woman in the video.

A follow up to the video showed several additional counter-protesters waving Confederate flags alongside her.

Twitter was abuzz with anger and disgust. 

The Spring News-Leader also reported that the BLM march ended peacefully a few hours later.

Twitter, for its part, wished the very opposite of peace for the woman shouting hate speech. 

Ultimately, the woman and her friends were completely left in the dust by the Black Lives Matter demonstrators, who marched across town calling for an end to systemic racism as so many others across the U.S. have for nearly a month.
