VIDEO – BOCC Votes to Build 6′ Fence Around Confederate Monument, Protesters Say Conservatives are Racist

BROOKSVILLE – Last week, RNRF reported that a group of left-wing anti-Confederate protesters were planning to destroy a 100-year-old monument that stands on the grounds of the Brooksville Courthouse. 

Dozens of Law Enforcement Officers prepared for the worst but thanks to the poor weather conditions and show of force, the demonstration remained peaceful.

During the event, we spoke with Akindeji HIl who says he would like to see the monument removed but said, “It’s up to the people to decide.” Hill drew an angry response from those listening to our interview, when he said, “Just like these people here, some of you are Klan members…” That comment didn’t bode with supporters and they let Hill know exactly how the accusation made them feel. Hill quickly apologized. Hill goes on to say that he believes Conservatives are racists and that he supports Black Lives Matter, despite the groups anti-law enforcement rhetoric. Click Here to watch the video in it’s entirety.

We interviewed Bettejo Passalaqua, one of the protestors who was allegedly tied to the threat, and she says, “There was no plan to take the statue down on Friday.” Passalaqua vehemently denied being a part of any plan to destroy the monument but she does agree that it should be removed.

Passalaqua tells RNRF, “Statues that were erected for the purpose of intimidating a particular group of people (such as were the confederate statues during Jim Crow) do not have a place in our public spaces. I will be generous and say that perhaps the people who are opposed to moving the Brooksville statue do not recognize that they have lived a life of white privilege that is so fully integrated into their consciousness that they do not recognize a reminder of the racism that has existed since this nation was colonized by Europeans.”

I asked Passalaqua why several left-wing groups like Antifa, Black Lives Matter, and the new Black Panthers are becoming more vocal and violent, and if it has anything to do with the past administration or the election of Donald Trump, she said, “The groups you mention came about because people are tired of innocent people of color being shot dead by police and vigilantes. They are tired of the constant harassment they receive because of the color of their skin. They are tired of their children, brothers, sisters, fathers and mothers being imprisoned for crimes that white people walk away from. They did not come into being because Obama was president, unless we want to consider that perhaps he didn’t do enough to squash violence and injustice against innocent people. On the other hand, Trump has emboldened armed white supremacist groups like those that terrorized the city of Charlottesville and murdered Heather Heyer. I am not angry that Trump was elected, but I am angry that he is supporting domestic terrorist groups that follow the paths of the KKK and Nazis. All patriotic Americans should have a problem with that. To the degree that Trump empowers these terrorist groups, groups that protect innocent people will rise.” Passalaqua goes on to say President Trump is a, “…misogynist sexual predator, he is a white nationalist, he appears to be mentally unstable and he endorses violence on innocent American citizens.”

RNRF brought the issue to social media and here’s what they had to say…

Tammy Bishop Gregory – “The black lives matter movement is still the civil Rights movement renamed. STILL standing for equality. The HUGE difference between these groups vs kkk, neo Nazis and white supremacists is… Their meetings are not about being superior to another race, their message is about equality. Their history doesn’t involve centuries of murders​ of people they see as inferior. I can’t believe this is still a discussion in 2017. Disgusting.”

Amanda Marsh – “I believe the statues should remain, they are a part of history right, wrong, or indifferent and we should have learned from that to be better and want better. I believe the anger is with whom is our current president, no one had an issue Prior to this no matter who the POTUS was. There is not a black man alive that can say they were a slave nor is there a white man alive who has owner one, therefore all of the people rioting and spewing bigotry are the real problem in this country. The history we are making now reflects worse on our country than the history they are trying to eras.”

Al-Sayed Ali Abdul – “If a community as a whole votes to remove a statue then that is acceptable. Taking all of them down is just nonsense. They have not been an issue until now. These left groups are desperately seeking anything they can to cause a disturbance and draw attention to their cause. With Obama, first it was the cops shooting black people, now it’s statues… It’s desperation for a cause I can’t even figure out. What is it they want? I asked a BLM follower that exact question and he answered, “we want reparations”… So, whatever that means. I think people need to take a look at the rest of the world and see how good they have it in the USA…”

Cheryl Martin – “Obama has set race relations back to the sixties!!! They are all hate groups!! The majority of whites don’t think about racism and are not racist but when they see these blacks running around the country rioting, burning, and being violent, it sure could change their minds!! The statue thing is crazy only a small amount of Southerners had slaves the rest fought to defend their homeland!!! Its history, leave it be. But the democrats are promoting these protests even thought it was the democrats who put them up and the southern Democrats who did the segregation in the south!!!! And somehow trump is to blame!!!”

While communities all over the State are voting to remove Confederate Monuments, today, Hernando County Commissioners voted unanimously to build a 6’ foot fence around their monument, bringing the heated issue to a close.

There are even protests in Tallahassee to have a monument removed from the grounds of the Capital but Governor Rick Scott has refused to comment on the issue so far. We made several attempts to ask State Representative Blaise Ingoglia to comment on the issue but he has also chosen to remain silent.

  • America is now being destroyed right before our very eyes by progressive groups of crybabies and their getting their away with it. Why wasn’t this an issue when Obama was president, Did the sky suddenly fall? We true people of our country with American values are watching those out of control radicals destroy American history and after all of American monuments are destroyed that displease them what next and who will it be. It can and will be anybody until fair minded Americans and those people in charge finally grow backbone and say ENOUGH!

  • Bettyjo Passalaqua is a shill for Antifa. A look at her FB page will show you her pathetic beliefs and the various anti-social groups she is part of. She is an avowed anarchist, denies being communist, but subscibes wholly to that mentality. She denies advocating for a violent confrontation in Brooksville, yet there are plenty of screenshots of her posts now deleted) saying just that! What a shame she chose such a caustic profession. I would challenge her to visit the Children’s Hospital in Tampa for a day and realize there are much better ways to ascribe one’s life to the actual betterment of both society and one’s soul.

  • I always get a chuckle when someone claims the Civil War had nothing to do with slavery and then points you to some right-wing modern-day author to prove it. I suggest you skip all that and merely read Lincoln’s Second Inaugural Address. Yes, it was about slavery. He fought the war. He should know.

    • I’ve lived in New England, for me it is a far superior state. Vermont has less people, more wilderness, it is one of the most peaceful states as far as crime is concerned, it was actually not uncommon for me to leave my house unlocked. Your statistics are flawed, but don’t take my word for it, look it up on google.

      Tolerance is something I don’t mind, for LGBT, for the religious, non religious, minorities. I’m a very tolerant person, which makes me a pretty poor fit for a lot of people in this county. Confederate flags don’t bother me, statues don’t bother me, even your insults are not really bothering me. If anything, I sort of feel bad for you. Of course, the degeneracy which you listed incorrectly for Vermont, is not something I am tolerant of – nor do I even speak of it in polite company.

      You must understand, the undertaking of moving out of a state into another is not a simple matter, first repairs need to be made to the house, it needs to be sold, money needs to be put aside, a proper notice to your employer ensuring they are not left short handed is necessary. This is especially pertinent after you have established yourself and have responsibilities.

  • George Washington was a slave owner, Do they want to blast him off MT. Rushmore next?

    Wednesday, 23 August 2017, 3:54 pm
    • Tony, 90 percent of them don’t even know who he even is let alone being a slave owner himself. Your right on that, he will be the next one they will go after. Smh,

      I have an idea for you libtards why don’t you make up your own History Book and put what ever twisted History that will make Antifa, black lives matter the gay agenda and anything else that you want. We will just stick to the Real History of this country. Look at the bright side Hitlery in your History Book will be showen as she won the election. Got a bad image of 1984 thinking about that one.

    • Joseph, do yourself a favor and educate yourself before you make claims based on your false education. You must be one of the zombies then since the only thing you can say is RNRF is racist with zero proof. Please provide documented or video proof to justify your claim. I bet I will hear crickets.

    • Do you even know or understand the definition of a racist? A legal description of a perpetrator is not racist…I would be happy to sit down and explain it to you as long as Tom had his selfie stick there to record it…..

  • I have a three year plan to get out of this crazy state, and move into Vermont. I hope you all have a lot of fun with your statues ;p This is just too outrageous to be true, yet, here we all are making a huge deal over a statue.. both left and right. I can’t wait to own a few acres of beautiful land, that actually has seasons, and sane people to boot. A place where meth heads, criminals, and general nutters avoid.

    Florida is crazy, and Brooksville / Spring Hill are absolutely no different. It will be nice to be among civilized people who know how to coexist with one another, without resorting to idiocy and violence.

    • Then why oh why did you move here?

      Wednesday, 23 August 2017, 3:43 pm
      • My girlfriend at the time was from around here, and did not want to stay in New England. I started off in Kissimmee, moved to Orlando, lived in Clearwater, then Port Richey, then I was employed by IBM and ended up in this area for the past nine years.

        Too many people, too much crime, too hot, and way too much crime. Moving from a town of 5,000 people, where crime was unheard of, the roads were mostly clear, the environment absolutely gorgeous was a huge mistake. I really do not understand why people think this state is a great place to move to.

        • Where is this utopia of perfection?

          Wednesday, 23 August 2017, 9:46 pm
          • It’s not a utopia, but compared to here, it is a great place. Just look at the stories on RNRF, people trying to kill or killing one another left and right.

            Think about this, in 2015 Vermont had 10 murders, Florida had 1041. When someone gets murdered there, it is the talk of the state, not just some passing news story that you expect to see on a daily basis. Human life just has more value.

            I feel bad for the law enforcement here.

            Wednesday, 23 August 2017, 10:57 pm
  • Personally, I have always looked at these Civil War statues the same as I do any other memorial from any of America’s wars where brave men were killed and wounded defending their homes, their families, and the things that were important to them as Americans.

    In my own family, I had three ancestors from Charleston, SC who served in defense of their State, their homes, and their families when President Lincoln called for the States in the Union to send him 70,000 troops to force South Carolina back into a union they no longer wanted to remain a part of. The Governor called for all able-bodied men to come to the defense of their State, their homes, and their neighbors. My ancestors were city boys from Charleston, and their family owned a local business. They were not slave-owning plantation owners. The oldest boy was running the family business because his father died in 1848. The next oldest boy was in his third year of what is now called The Citadel, and the youngest of the three was in his second year of medical school. The two youngest ones immediately withdrew from school and enlisted in the South Carolina militia to do their manly duty.

    To make a long story short, two of the three were killed in the war, and never got to resume their plans for their lives. The family business was destroyed by Federal soldiers before the end of the war. Imagine sending three of your sons off to war, and having two of them killed while still in their early 20s. For them, the war had nothing to do with slavery, but rather everything to do with defending their home and family from an attacking army.

    A majority (if not all) of these Confederate memorials were erected by the families of men who fought in defense of their homes and families, at personal expense, with most of them erected by the United Daughters of the Confederacy, women whose fathers, husbands, and sons had served when called, and 300,000 of whom were killed and many more maimed in the process.

    My particular ancestors were able to recover some portions of the bodies of their sons who had been buried on the battlefields, and were able to bring those few remains back to Charleston to be buried together in a small grave, but many families’ sons or fathers were never recovered and their burial sites are unknown. These memorials erected throughout the South were erected in memory of all the brave men who did their duty when called upon to do so, and in memory of the many who never returned home.

    When I hear hateful comments by those who do not know the real reason why these memorials were erected call for them to be destroyed or removed because they are “painful reminders of slavery”, never considering the fact that they were actually erected in memory of those who lost life and limb in a war they never wanted in the first place, or when I see pictures of these memorials defaced or broken by folks driven by hate and lack of historical knowledge, it is very painful to those of us who lost ancestors in that war. These memorials are no different in context than the memorials that commemorate Americans who were killed or maimed in other American wars.

    Back in the 1950s, the U.S. Congress passed an Act stating that Confederate veterans are henceforth to be considered American veterans, just like any other American veterans of other wars, and that they would be henceforth entitled to the same benefits and courtesies as any other American veterans. What we Americans are witnessing now with all the desecration of memorials is not what America is all about, and is a sad statement on what has become of American society.

  • Amazing how utterly stupid these libtards are as they just mindlessly follow left wing media propaganda. The comment listed in the story by a Cheryl Martin is spot on. Yeah, I lived a life of white privilege, if you mean I got up each day and busted my ass to provide for myself and my family, yup it was a privilege. Now we all bust our asses to pay for the freebies for these rioting assholes to out and make a sad mockery of our country. Tragic!

    One change would fix this Country real fast. If you work and pay taxes, or own property and pay taxes, or collect social security retirement because you paid taxes into it your whole working life, or if you are or have served this country in the military you can vote. If not, go get a job or contribute to this country! These freeloaders will never bite the hand that feeds them and the politicians will keep giving them free stuff to buy their votes for their party. Can’t anybody see this?

    • Well said Surfadude. Soon we will be reaching the 100th monkey with the truth and they will not be able to stop it. So expect massive censorship in the internet as they try to take full control over the internet. We are seeing the beginnings of it now with youtube, Facebook, Twitter and google.

  • I watched the whole discussion about the statue and don’t recall them saying anything about a fence. They were basically in agreement that the statue should not be taken down. When during the meeting did this vote occur?

    Tuesday, 22 August 2017, 10:25 pm
  • What good would a 6 foot fence do?? You would still be able to see it. The hate groups will still bitch up a storm, that they can still see it!!!. Leave the damn statue alone and take a history lesson. This statue is part of history and should not be moved or have a fence around it. There are no slaves living today, get over it people!! Instead of being offended by the statue…..MOVE TO ANOTHER PLACE AND LEAVE OUR STATUE!!! You don’t have to live here you know. This whole thing is absolutely ridiculous!!

    Tuesday, 22 August 2017, 10:23 pm
    • This statue also has nothing to do with blacks getting shot. This statue is for the war. NOTHING TO DO WITH YOU PROTESTERS!!! Leave the statue alone, its history!!! Hate groups need to go away!!!!!_

      Tuesday, 22 August 2017, 10:29 pm
    • I agree with you 100% and these people that have nothing better to do than sit around and be stirrers need to get off their get jobs and contribute to society. I think them putting a six foot fence around the statue is so that no one can remove it…???? Like you said, it will only cover the first six feet so what’s the big flap about?

      Wednesday, 23 August 2017, 3:39 pm
  • Joe, you are absolutely correct. It is at the hands of George Soros and the new world order. The civil war was not about slavery if you read up on it. Every war is about one thing and one thing only…….the almighty dollar. Lee was opposed to slavery but joined the confederacy to help protect his home……Virginia. The south had all the big cash crops…tobacco and cotton…. but no deep water ports to export it. The northerners had the deep water ports and imposed high fees to use them causing the southerners to not make money on their crops so they wanted to break away and form the confederate states of America. It was never about slavery as some think. These war monuments stood for many years until the hate groups who are trying to divide us made them an issue. ANTIFA, KKK, Nazis and black Lives Matter, are hate groups who are working to divide us Americans so we may be conquered. Don’t feed into their BS. I applaude the BOCC for their decision to protect history. Maybe the people who think that this is about slavery and oppression should see that this is a reminder of where we were and how far we have come! It is history and not hate! Education is the answer.

    Tuesday, 22 August 2017, 9:35 pm
    • Just sayin, your are correct also. What they teach you in the Liberal schools is lie. If you research the real history you will find the truth. And when more people look for the truth and find it they will soon look back at the Democrats that has been lying to them all thier lives and say we have been had. But they have to go through the five stages, denial, anger, bargaining, depression and acceptance. When they complete this process they will be awaken to the truth.

      Wednesday, 23 August 2017, 12:07 am
  • Everyone on this site needs to buy Dinesh D’Souza’s new book, “The Big Lie”. In spite of the fact that he is an immigrant (legal) from India, this man is brilliant and knows more about American history than today’s history teachers. If you read the book, you will learn that the KKK was founded by, wait for it, wait for it…..DEMOCRATS. The FIRST slave holder in America was BLACK. And he wasn’t the only one. There were also slaves in the North. Lincoln and the Republican Party tried to abolish slavery before the civil war. It was the Democrats that fought that idea. It was the Democrats that voted AGAINST the Civil Rights Act. It was the Democrats that did not want to give blacks the right to vote. All these “useful idiots” that the left employees and indoctrinates and show up at these protests, have a right to protest, of course. But, please, get a real education on what the cause is. Because you have been hoodwinked with incorrect information from the left. And, they don’t give 2 hoots about you as long as you keep voting to keep them in power.
    How many times must you demand that President Trump denounce the KKK and David Duke? Are you hard of hearing or just not paying attention.
    And, President Trump was correct when he talked about their being trouble on both sides in VA. It was true. And, the police were not allowed to keep the 2 groups apart. And, they were told to stand down. It was all a setup by the local politicians. DEMOCRATS! And, a woman lost his life because of what they did.

    Tuesday, 22 August 2017, 9:21 pm
    • Nancy, you are 100 percent correct. Nice to know there are awaken souls unlike the Democrats. They are just lost mindless zombies.

      Tuesday, 22 August 2017, 9:56 pm
      • 100 percent accurate!

        Tuesday, 22 August 2017, 10:54 pm
  • The Civil War was then, this is now – get on with your LIVES! Fence! Wasting more tax dollars, the usual. Our Sorry society!!!

    Tuesday, 22 August 2017, 9:21 pm
  • I have been in the metal fabrication business here for forty years. I will build and erect it at no cost to the public. This statue represents the men of the third Florida wildcats and the ladies that erected it did so for the same reason we honor veterans today. If we can reconcile with all other former enemies today such as Germany Japan England etc. Then who are these trouble makers from elsewhere trying to fool. We have reconciled and made peace. Stop trying to start animosity between people where there is none.

    • Doug, well put!
      Consequently, all this issue about a statue is a made-up effort to produce animosity in the town of Brooksville; it is apparent there is another agenda on the table. The blacks, whites, Hispanic, and etc. have been living together in this community without discord over race for numerous year. Suddenly, now there is a problem about a statue. This is a propaganda to start up something that does not exist. I am black law abiding citizen who rarely visits the court house and when I do I do not worry about what is standing in front of it. What I care about is the parking arrangement!

  • The only terrorist groups that I see in the news on a daily basis is antifa and black lives matter. The only reason you even hear about the neo Nazis is because the libtards want the sheeple to associate them to the conservative and Patriots. Which Soros and Obama is doing behind the scenes. This is all to try to take down a president that it taking this country and giving it back to the people. We hand 8 years of hell with Obama. Now it’s time to undo all that Obama has done and the elites don’t want that to happen. So they are creating chaos to take Trump down. And if that fails they will Arkancide him.

    • Joe, you are spot on. This situation we find ourselves in is not about “racism” . It’s about the conversion of this country from a free Republic to a Dictatorship. We are living the George Orwell’s book “1984”, and it is all funded by George Soros who has destroyed many countries just like this and turned them into Communism. If you read the history of George Soros your hair will stand on end, starting from his life in Nazi Germany when he was a teenager. Obama is his hand puppet as is Hillary and many others. All of the big protests are funded by Soros. He pays $15/hour for people to protest. The destruction of our statues around the country have nothing to do with slavery it is about getting rid of American History. Soon they will be going to Libraries and destroying books. For years now, the public education system in this country have been “teaching” incorrect history filled with made up facts and eliminating the true history of this country. The 8 years under Obama has turned the people of this country against each other and I for one this it is awful to create such hate.

      • Robin Natterer, correct 100 percent. Got to love the awaken souls that are able to utilize your critical thinking skills to educate yourselves that the Liberal schools are unwilling to teach people these days. Why is that you say because they want followers to follow thier idiotic Marxist rules. Just read Saul Alinsky Rules For Radicals and you get to know how Hitlery and Obama thinks.

  • Fence is not a good idea, where would the money come from to pay for said fence?

    • It won’t cost that much. Well worth the cause.

    • Remember the money they took from the sheriff’s “hidden fund “??? There you have it.

  • A six foot fence will look stupid right in the middle of Brooksville. The statue has been there for over 100 years, so leave it there and get on with life.
