Unless you are surrounded by a ton of acreage, you have one of them. The annoying neighbor. The one that you have to make sure you invite to your party so they won’t call the cops complaining about the noise. Or the one with the perfectly manicured lawn yelling at the kids to get off it. In this case, the classification for this neighbor is: Family – Ignoramus, Genus – Attention Whore.
Family – Ignoramus
She said she flies this flag because, “I’m the lady who loves her flag and loves her heritage.” A heritage of losers? I don’t know why you’d fly the flag of the losing team, but to each their own.
She tearfully testified that she’s not racist. Does she not get why people might think she is? Probably not. See Family classification. I guess it doesn’t matter because she simply doesn’t care.
Genus – Attention Whore
Her own words show that she loves the attention:
“People driving by here because of the privacy fences, they tend to slow down,” she said. “If the objective was to block my house from view, they didn’t succeed very well.”
Mm hmm. A pathetic woman with nothing going on except for her provocative Confederate flag. Suddenly, she’s in the news and on blogs (you’re so very welcome). And no doubt, she has a lot of supporters.
While South Carolina (with the exception of coastal areas like Myrtle Beach – Hi DC!) isn’t a destination I dream of living in one day, I would love to move in as her next door neighbor. Two can play at this game.
I would get two even taller flag poles and fly these:
She has every right to fly her flag. And as her imaginary neighbor, so do I. The First Amendment rocks! I say screw the fences. Get flags just as head-turning – if not more. The one thing Genus – Attention Whore hates is anything that steals their spotlight.
