This past weekend in Douglasville, Georgia, a suburb of Atlanta, Melissa Alford was having an outdoor birthday party for her child. Apparently, this was unacceptable to nearby Confederate “Protect the Flag” supporters.
Racist Confederates disrupt the birthday party, brandishing rifles and Confederate flags. “I’ll shoot them ni**ers.”
According to Alford and other witnesses, a caravan of Confederate flag waving pick-up trucks drove by the party several times brandishing rifles and throwing around racial slurs. The breaking AJC article reports:
‘One had a gun, saying he was gonna kill the [racial slur],’ Alford told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. ‘Then one of them said gimme the gun, I’ll shoot them [racial slur].’
The leader of the racist band claims they pulled over only after one of the trucks got a flat tire after driving over a median, then were “swarmed” by party-goers. This seems highly unlikely, however, as a cell phone video shows several trucks parked in a grassy area, with no road in sight. There are also no party attendees in view, although the Confederate lovers can be seen brandishing a riffle and using the slur “ni**er.”
A second cell phone video shows police keeping the victims back, as the trucks drive off, honking their horns. Police say they will review the videos to see if any illegal activities can be seen, but they didn’t seem to take witnesses’ reports of death threats seriously.
