Page Braswell, 44, had seen a photo doing the rounds of a Nazi flag hanging outside a home in her neighborhood. Following the violence in Charlottesville, Va., on Saturday by neo-Nazi groups and KKK supporters, she felt she couldn’t keep quiet about the fact a neighbor was flying the controversial flag. Braswell posted a video of her confronting the homeowner in question on Facebook Monday, saying, “This is my town.” The video almost instantly went viral on the social media platform, with 4,000 likes at the time of writing and almost 12,000 shares. She also made sure to share the address with her followers.

Woman arrives at the home displaying the Nazi flag

Braswell went driving round her neighborhood on Sunday and tracked down the Nazi flag to one Joe Love, who also lived near Mount Holly in Gaston County, NC, around 15 miles from Charlotte.

She didn’t know Love until the moment she stopped in his driveway to confront him. However she instantly noted the Trump bumper sticker on his truck before she called out to Love, asking what’s happening with the flag.

Love immediately wants to know who she is and what his Nazi flag has got to do with her. He identified himself to Braswell, then launched into a tirade full of foul language and hand gestures, telling her it is none of her business. Love told Braswell to leave, stating he is not a Nazi, but went on to add the words, “this is Nazi f*****g America.”

Mention of a rainbow flag brings more expletives

Love then asked Braswell where she lived and what flag does she fly, to which she responded a “rainbow flag.” Love was quick to respond by referring to her as a “lesbian” and “queer.”

The video is included here but viewers are warned of strong language.

Braswell pointed out in her post that she is a straight, married woman and that she has no rainbow flag flying at her home, although she said she would like to get one. With the language Love used on her, she realized this is what LGBT people and minorities have to face all the time.

Love claims his three Confederate flags had been stolen

As reported by the Gaston Gazette, Love told them he hung out the Nazi flag after he had three Confederate flags stolen from outside his home. Love went on to tell them the Nazi insignia was originally a religious symbol in India before Hitler started using it. He went on to add that he agrees with it as a religious symbol, but does not back Hitler and is not a white supremacist. Love went on to take down the Nazi flag before going back inside his home, telling the Gazette he will be hanging a Confederate flag in its place.

According to Braswell, if Love had a Confederate flag outside his home, she probably wouldn’t have confronted him, saying there are plenty of those in Gaston County, adding that this is still “horrible.” However, after all the violence in Charlottesville over the confederate statue being removed from the city, with one person killed and 19 injured, social media called on people to speak up about the situation, so she did.

In a further post on Facebook, Braswell said not everyone is able to confront racism. She went on to add that white people caused the problem and that it is “our mess” to clean up. When several Facebook users went on to warn her about the dangers of confronting white supremacists like Love, Braswell added she was willing to risk it. She added that in Gaston County, they have plenty of mean dogs and are armed.
