Mo. Man, Tired of Being Called Racist for Flying a Confederate Flag, Puts Up ‘Slaves 4 Sale’ Sign in Retaliation Because That Makes Complete Sense

Y’all, there’s dumb and then there’s dumb. And one Liberty, Mo., resident is literally the representation of being “dumber than a bag of rocks” after throwing up a “Slaves 4 Sale” sign, all because he was mad at his neighbors for apparently treating him like a racist because he hangs a Confederate flag (the flag of racists) outside his home.

So, Richard Geisenheyner actually opened his mouth and told Fox4KC that his sign was all about the reaction he received over his Confederate battle flag.

He claims that he flies the flag as a political statement, saying that it was more about people being “tired of the government telling them what to do and what to think” than about anything else.

“If people actually believe that a Confederate flag stands for slavery, well, I might as well be just as stupid as they are,” he told the news station.

Well. You got one thing right, Rich; you are stupid.

Geisenheyner, who has mixed-race grandchildren (of course he does), pointed out that in order for him to actually be selling slaves, he’d have to sell his grandchildren. I’m still not sure what kind of reaction he was truly going for here, but let’s go with it and say that if he gave a damn about his grandchildren, he’d think about how they will feel reading this story in a couple of years, knowing that their grandfather put up a sign like this.

As for the reaction that he actually got? Well, his neighbors are pissed.

“His rebel flag don’t have a damn thing to do with me; wave it all you want,” said one man who asked not to be identified. “This idiot with his slaves for sale, are you fricking kidding me?”

This neighbor was fed up, y’all. The way he said “idiot”—it came from his chest.

Geisenheyner took down the sign Tuesday afternoon, saying that his point had been made. Neighbors are hoping that he finds other ways to express himself in the future.

“If people called him a racist because he was flying the rebel flag and he wanted to make a statement and put up slaves for sale, well, I didn’t offend you. I haven’t called you a racist, so you have got to think about the other people in the community,” a woman who lives nearby said.

Or, here’s a thought, Rich: Maybe don’t fly a flag that is associated with racists, segregationists, the Ku Klux Klan, neo-Nazis ... need I go on?

The mind of a racist is an interesting specimen.

The resentment. The anger. The fear. The frustration. The silly ideologies they create. The most illogical excuses they have when questioned.

It’s almost comical in a way that for a group that prides themselves on being superior in every way OR for those who just want to take umbrage in defeated rebellion that claimed to usurp a power structure hell bent on fascism that itself was the poster child of fascism......they no matter the variety these people come in, the flavor is consistently labeled STUPID.

And of course he has mixed grand kids but still found a way to pretend his notion absolves him of any wrongdoing for his mentality, as if he hasn’t screwed over his kids and grand kids already.
