Law enforcement was out in full force as the League of the South organization protested at the old state capitol yesterday in Tallahasseee, Florida.
The League of the South organization, who was also at the riots in Charlottesville, Va. and the protests at the University of Florida, said they were protesting in support of “Florida sovereignty”.
They were quickly met with dozens of counter protesters where it took a racial turn. Counter-protesters carried signs saying
“We don’t want your Nazi hate”
Michael Hill, a member of the League of the South, defended the groups actions.
“I think it’s been made a race issue today by the fact that we’ve been out here and we’ve been hearing chants of black power and we didn’t start that you know we’re not out here screaming white power.“
This despite the fact that chants of “white side is the right side” were heard coming from the League of the South group.
In the clip below you can hear one man yell,
“Free Florida From RuPaul!“
Oh no she didn’t!? Mama Ru has the only appropriate response…
