From Conservative Tribune:
Efforts to do away with the Confederate flag have begun bordering on criminal, thanks in large part to an offer of a monetary reward to the first person to take matters into their own hands and remove the flag from the South Carolina Capitol grounds themselves.
Shaun King, an organizer of the #blacklivesmatter movement, sent out a series of tweets yesterday offering a steadily increasing reward of up to $10,000, plus bail money, to the first person to remove the flag.
Which, should the flag be vandalized, should rightfully result in his being charged as an accessory.
King eventually retracted his offer, after he was undoubtedly slammed by commenters of Twitter, who presumably informed him of the illegality of his proposition (H/T WZ).
King himself could have been held culpable for soliciting the illegal activity, possibly finding himself in violation of South Carolina Code Section 16-17-220, which declares it to be illegal to “mutilate, deface, defile, defy, jeer at, trample upon or cast contempt, either by word or act” any U.S., state, or Confederate flag in public.
We take the “G” here to mean either “geek” or “gomer,” but that’s probably not what he had in mind.
At any rate, his conviction could have resulted in a fine of $50 or imprisonment for up to 30 days.
Frankly, the longer he spent incarcerated without access to social media, the better off America is likely to be. Thirty days? We should be so lucky.
Please share this on Facebook and Twitter if you are simply astonished at the ferocity of the left in attacking the Confederate flag and other symbols of American history.

Typical lefty activist asshole! Coward too. He wouldn’t do it himself yet he’d offer money for some fool to do it. $2 says that his group is financed by Soros via one of his lefty community organizing groups. Notice that King is a white dude attempting to stir up the blacks. It’s so very typical of the left.
Imagine if a conservative or a republican attempted something similar, like graffiti on one of their lefty bullshit billboards. By day’s end the FBI would have them locked-up and the DOJ would have charged them with a hate crime or domestic terrorism.
I remain disgusted with the insanity, the blatant disregard for the law, and the manipulation of the lemmings by this administration and its proxies. Radio Talk Show host Mark Levin regularly opines that “we are living in a Post Constitutional America”. He’s right. Every societal norm has been upended and the law exists only to control certain people.
I miss America.
