Someone tarred and feathered a Jefferson Davis memorial in Arizona

  • A Confederate monument in Phoenix was defaced early Thursday morning by a vandal who spray-painted it white according to DPS

So she headed to the Arizona Capitol where the Confederate memorial stands and got her hands dirty.

Now, a woman in Phoenix, Arizona, has made a decision to take the next logical step and turn the Confederate monument in her hometown into a giant participation trophy.

Popular Video This young teenage singer was shocked when Keith Urban invited her on stage at his concert.

Rebecca, who refused to support Donald Trump and voted for Hillary Clinton in the latest election, told the Phoenix New Times: 'I was just so outraged by Trump's press conference. "I thought, I have to do something". Armed with two Pinterest-worthy banners reading "2nd Place" and "Participant", Rebecca Olsen McHood did some relatively-harmless modifications to the monument.

"I wasn't sure what was going to happen-I wasn't sure if people were convening at Confederate monuments around the state or not", she said.

McHood said a nearby police officer didn't try to stop her from hanging the banners, but only said she couldn't actually attach anything to the monument. "I know we have some white power people who like to have little rallies, but they get, like 20 people, so I wasn't too concerned for my safety".

McHood then posted pictures of their handiwork on Facebook, half expecting pushback. Thus, she said, she felt like she needed to do something to speak out against hatred.

An Arizona woman who also happens to be a registered Republican chose to do whatever she could to send a strong anti-racism message to the country.

McHood describes herself as a Republican and said that she felt as though President Trump was "condoning" the activities of white supremacists.

"I am a Republican - I'm for fiscal responsibility, and integrity in politics", she noted.

McHood says now, though, she's grown exhausted of the "tea party" mentality in Gilbert and does not believe Trump is heading things in the right direction. "It's abhorrent - I have no words for it", she concluded.
