Thirty Patriots From The League Of The South Show Up In Support Of Annie Chambers Caddell To Offset 70 Black Protestors In Summerville, South Carolina

At least 70 Black residents (there were also a couple of whiggers in the group) of the so-called "historically black" neighborhood of Brownsville in the city of Summerville, SC showed up to rally in front of the home of Annie Chambers Caddell against her display of the Confederate battle flag on her own property. The background of this controversy was previously described HERE.

But they got a surprise. According to the Charleston Post & Courier, an estimated 30 patriots belonging to the South Carolina League of the South were waiting on them. The patriots decided to show up to lend their support to Caddell, who's been bullied by Black activists in her neighborhood over her display of the Confederate battle flag. Among the patriots was a Black man, H.K. Edgerton, who ended up verbally jousting with some of the younger Black demonstrators. "This flag is as much for any black man as for any white man," Edgerton proclaimed while waving the Confederate battle flag at the Black residents who confronted him. See the Post & Courier's photo gallery HERE.

The South Carolina League of the South does not consider itself a White nationalist organization. It is associated with the League of the South (LOS) and was organized in 1995. The goal of the SCLoS is to secure a free and independent South Carolina by elected and appointed individuals serving at all levels of state government as demanded by the public. Because of its patriotism, the League of the South has been designated a "hate group" by the Southern Poverty Law Center. Real American patriots consider it to be an honor to be designated a "hater" by the SPLC; it's like getting a letter of commendation placed in your personnel file in the military.

Confronted by the mostly-White resistance, the Black residents are now wavering in their commitment. Summerville Town Councilman Aaron Brown, who led the march, said, ""We're looking for a peaceful resolution...We're hoping to bring enough pressure for her or anyone else who would even think about posting the Confederate flag or any negative paraphernalia in our communities." Brown added that if Caddell decides not to take the flag down, he hopes to send a committee of intermediaries to speak with her to reach a compromise.

But Annie Cadell is standing firm; she said after the march that she would not budge. "I will not take it to the back (yard) or will not take it down...My intent was not to harm anybody; my intent was to live my life."
