Black Lives Matter Protester Mob met with Resistance at Confederate Flag Store in Missouri : In Branson, Missouri protesters on both sides clashed outside a business that sells Confederate flag memorabilia. About 150 people on both sides of the issue gathered on the city’s busiest street.
People once again protested Dixie Outfitters, a Confederate memorabilia store, saying the rebel symbol represents oppression. Larry Flenoid of BLM claims the owners have ties to the Ku Klux Klan.
“We’re standing against real racism and hate. Out here battling back, making our voices heard and saying, enough is enough,” Flenoid said.

Matthew Richey said he believes the store is a staple for Branson that should not be removed just because some people don’t like it.
“There’s no racists here. I can’t speak for a lot of these people but I’ve never owned a slave in my life so I’m not a racist,” Richey said.
Drew Tompkins said she admits parts of the protests got heated, but she said she’s standing up for what she believes in. She said she’s from the south and the Confederate symbol represents that.
Of course Main Stream media tried to use this clash as “Finally proof racism exists in America”. A couple of bad apples existed in the crowd on both sides but overall it did not get out of hand.
