Video: Dangerous new challenge – ripping down Confederate flags sure to get people shot

The tragedy is only a question of time.

In a social media movement almost guaranteed to provoke violence, vandals pretending to make a point are recording themselves ripping down Confederate flags on private property.

And posting it for the world to see.

In the age of smart phones, a few videos have surfaced on social media, complete with the hashtag #NoFlaggingChallenge, with the perpetrators being celebrated as heroes by fellow zealots.

BizPac Review covered one such incident last week, where a young black man is seen pulling a flag from the back of a semi in slow-moving traffic.

While some are encouraging the behavior, others are pointing out that it is a real good way to get yourself shot.

A couple of videos showing flags being ripped down were posted on social media, prompting a wave of responses discouraging the act.

Here’s a sampling from Twitter:
