Woman Giving The Finger To White Supremacist Has People Cheering
8 months ago

The protest in Charlottesville, Virginia, last weekend has left the nation shaken and firmly divided.

So on Tuesday, when a man decided to stand in front of the statue of Robert E. Lee that was at the center of the protest, in full Confederate gear no less, people were pissed.

A photo of a woman giving the man a double dose of the middle finger hit Twitter:

According to The Daily Progress, Allen Armentrout of North Carolina came to the park with a Confederate flag, a rifle, and a semiautomatic handgun to "honor and defend the Confederate general," but disagreed with the "Unite the Right" rally's views and condemned the actions that took the life of 32-year-old Heather Heyer.

Once word got out, a crowd of people came to get Armentrout to leave, shouting "racist go home," and "terrorist go home," as can be seen in this YouTube video:

Armentrout explained: "I’m out here to honor my ancestors and honor the men who died under the command of Robert E. Lee, and I think me being out here shows that I hope to accomplish the fact that the world can see that there’s non-racist pro-Confederate people out there that love freedom and independence."

Over on Twitter, however, many were happy that someone took a stand against him:

The woman has been identified as Lara Rogers, a Charlottesville resident.

The picture itself was also getting some major props.

And people were happy to oblige:

Lara Rogers, you are now Twitter-approved:
