Bree Newsome, Superhero



Just coming up for air to record that this happened. (Can't believe they put that flag back up over the South Carolina state house after Bree Newsome's thrilling act of civil disobedience.)

  1. I seriously cannot understand why they have to go through a legislative process to take that fucker down.
    Bree is awesome.

  2. She is incredible. I watched the video at work and teared up. Bree showed us how to get it done.

  3. That Governor Haley sure missed her chance to make her mark, didn't she. This whole thing beggars belief and is truly worthy of a Fellini film or something that will capture both the pathos and absurdity of all of it. Since I've been at this writing residency, I don't have much internet access and haven't kept up. I watched the video of the amazing Bree taking it down, but I can't believe that it's back up! WTF?

  5. I cannot think of a more potent symbol of hatred, ignorance and aggression than this flag and why anyone would find anything positive in this flag and want to fly it is beyond me. Kudos to Ms. Newsome for trying to do something about it.

  6. I would love to people climbing up that flag pole, over and over and over, until they powers that be just give up and keep it down once and for all.
