Imagine you are an aging survivor of one of the histories most recent atrocities, the holocaust. In your late 90's now, you are driving home when you see a terrifying image that you haven't seen since you were a prisoner of war in World War II, a Nazi flag. You are suddenly struck with flashbacks, the last time you saw that flag flying over your head was 70 years ago. But how can this be? You are in America.

Page Braswell may not be an elderly survivor of World War II, but she did see a Nazi flag flying over an American home in South Carolina. Shocked by what she saw, just days after the Charlottesville attack, Braswell decided to confront the home owner flying the Nazi Germany colors. Braswell pulls into the driveway of the home and gets out of her car while filming with her cell phone. A middle aged man named Joe Love walks to meet her as she asks, "Hey, what's up with the, uh, Nazi flag?" The man responds, "Who are you?" in a thick southern accent. Braswell repeats her question and the man responds in a defensive manner while avoiding an answer to her question.
Eventually, the man acknowledges the flag, "I'm not a Nazi," he says "This is Nazi f** America!" Love finally tells Braswell, "If you don't get the hell out of here, me and you's going to have trouble, I promise you that." Taking the hit, Braswell heads back to her car and the video ends. There aren't too many reasons for flying a flag unless you support what that flag represents. Seeing the Nazi flag flying in America is a troubling image, to say the least.
