‘Heirs of the Confederacy’ protested in Chapel Hill: ‘Go home racists’

Published

on

A small group calling themselves “Heirs of the Confederacy” were drowned out by a much larger group of anti-racist protesters in Chapel Hill on Saturday.

The group gathered to protest the removal of “Silent Sam,” a bronze statue commemorating a Confederate soldier.

“Join us as we protest the anti confederate hysteria espoused by authorities, officials, students, faculty, staff and organizations in Chapel Hill/UNC that have succumbed to a state of anarchy and utter disregard for the rule of law,” Heirs of the Confederacy said while promoting the event.

The group was met by a much larger group protesting racism.

“Go home, racists!” they chanted.

They also chanted, “One, two, three — f*ck white supremacy!”

Another chant was, “Cops and Klan go hand in hand.”

“Despite some shoving and a brief tug-of-war over a Confederate flag, there were no arrests and there appeared to be no injuries except to participants’ vocal cords during the two-hour clash,” The News and Observer reported.

During an interview with Rush Limbaugh this Monday, Charlamagne Tha God called out the conservative radio host for his white privilege and asked him why he's choosing to speak out on George Floyd's killing while there have been countless examples of police violence against black people.

“I know that you’re going to disagree with me on this — to me this is not America,” Limbaugh said, adding that he thinks the U.S. is the greatest country in the world.

But according to Charlamagne, America is only great for some people.

“I think it’s easy for you to say because you’re a white male and that comes with a different level of privilege,” Charlamagne said. “And I do think America does work but it works for the people it was designed to work for. It doesn’t work for everyone else the way it works for you.”
