Georgia business owner takes down Confederate flag — and replaces it with Nazi swastika
The owner of an “eclectic” art gallery in Macon, Georgia took down the Confederate Flag flying outside the business this week — and replaced it with a World War II-era Nazi flag.
According to WGXA Channel 24, the gallery SEVEN on Second will be flying the Nazi flag for a week.
Owner Anthony Harris told the TV station, “I just want people to realize that it’s a flag. Don’t get so much in an uproar about it; it’s good to have a conversation about it; it’s good to address it, but there’s no need to want to kill someone over it.”
On the gallery’s Facebook page, Harris can be seen posing with customers who came in to buy Confederate flags, as well as photo of the black Celtic Cross flag and the statement: “This was last week’s flag at SEVEN — The Celtic Cross, which has been co-opted by a skinhead group. No one complained an iota about this one. Two words: Media Propaganda.”
