Oklahoma Rednecks Greet President Obama With Confederate Flags (VIDEO)

President Obama arrived on Wednesday afternoon in what might be considered very close to “ground zero” when it comes to where he is most despised in the country – in the state of Oklahoma, near the Texas border. And as one can expect, his arrival wasn’t exactly received with loving salutations and lace hankies.

The president was in Durant, Oklahoma to announce the ConnectHome program, a program that will bring high-speed internet access to low-income rural communities across America. In other words, places like Durant itself and thousands of other towns in Oklahoma, Texas, and the South. Areas where a large percentage of folks despise him, and who won’t bother to say, “Thanks Obama!” when it takes them less time to post their anti-Obama diatribes on Facebook and other places on the world wide web.

To show their “appreciation” for this program, a group of rednecks gathered in Durant and proudly waved their Confederate flags, which of course has become a symbolic lightning rod ever since the racially motivated mass murder of 9 blacks in a Charleston, South Carolina church by Dylann Roof, a young white man who was seen in pictures prior to the massacre draped in the Confederate flag. Several southern states have since taken down the flag from their respective state capitals.

Of course, the gathered throngs denied that the Confederate flag has anything to do with racism. It’s all about heritage, you see. We’re guessing that 9 out of 10 of these morons don’t realize that not only was Oklahoma not part of the confederacy during the Civil War, but it wasn’t even a state. And if the Confederate flag isn’t symbolic of slavery and racism, how come we never see anyone but white people at these things? These gatherings could easily be identified as a KKK event.

Would these idiots show their faces if President Obama were white? We’re guessing… no.

But we can’t blame this solely on Oklahoma, since many of these “not racist” southern heritage loving yahoos showed up from Texas, the state that President Obama is about to (snicker!) invade.

However, not everyone in Durant were on the side of the Confederate flag-waving bozos. Tulsa World posted some reactions on Twitter from Oklahomans who were flat-out embarrassed by the reception they gave President Obama. One of the best ones read:

“The President is in Oklahoma? Let’s show em how dumb we is!”

And one lady had the perfect response to them, in fact…

I'm not with stupid
