The battle for the South is still being fought… in New York?
An “eccentric” East Village DJ was arrested after he took to social media to boast that he punched out the window of a neighbor who was proudly displaying a pair of back-lit Confederate flags, according to the New York Post.
New Yorkers have been “seeing red” since the display went up following last week’s violence in Charlottesville, resulting in rocks and bricks being hurled up at the fifth-floor apartment, The Post reported.

But Darren Keen decided to take matters into his own hand, bloody as it soon would be.
Property rights be damned, he told The Post that in order to reach the window, he had to jump onto the neighbor’s roof from his adjacent roof.
“I climbed down the fire escape, took off my shirt, wrapped it around my hand and punched out his f**king window,” Keen said.
Turns out, police were in front of the building at the time of his criminal behavior.
Proving that he is indeed a liberal, Keen said: “They shined their spotlights on me. I yelled down, ‘F**k you, NYPD!’”
Waving his bloody finger, the 34-year-old former resident of Omaha, Nebraska, posted a video on Instagram as the cops knocked on his door — he claimed they followed his “trail of blood.”
“So yeah, basically the police are looking for me. I gotta go!” he said. “I won’t let them blame the wrong person. F**k this racist sh*t.”
Cementing his liberal constitution, Keen explained his reasoning to the newspaper.
“The anger I felt because of the flag caused me to do this crazy thing,” he said. “I can’t imagine how angry it made a disadvantaged person feel.”
But you have to give the DJ credit for recognizing that he’s not the sharpest tool in the shed.
He posted a photo of himself being taking into custody, along with the caption: “Yeah ok I was dumb for punching out the window instead of painting the wutang logo but I did scream ‘f**k white supremacy wutang is for the children’ while getting put into the car.”
Keen would later post a “Racist Flag update!” — effectively declaring victory by noting that police took the flags down.
“We just walked by the apartment. Because of me breaking out the window the police had probable cause to enter apartment and they took down the flags so now they’re gone. I just got a ticket for ‘mischief’ which is lower than vandalism. Sh*t worked out real good IMO.”
We can expect him to be paraded before America on a number of cable news channels soon for “seeking peace through violence.”
