… if they could get more than 10 people to show up to one of their protests.
Looks like there are more flags than people there. Maybe they should open a John B. Magruder chapter.
That’s a good one. I wonder if they will get it.
Unfortunately for them they are not facing McClellan and Pinkerton.
Until I read their sign, I didn’t know the flags were Robert E. Lee’s.
Then again, he didn’t know they where his flags, either.
Aren’t they “outside agitators” in Lexington? 😉
They are indeed, at least relative to the Committee, which is composed of actual students at the school.
As usual, Dr. Simpson has nailed it. But, Kevin, “more than 10”? I think if they get to five that would be a major accomplishment.
I count three people and a folding chair. Wow. Where is the crowd control in riot gear?
Is that Mayor McCheese? How did they such get a celebrity guest?
I like the still-life photo of the four “cold drinks” they put on Facebook. Very convincing.
“Is that Mayor McCheese?”
Oh, the Flaggers don’t like the mayor of Lexington AT ALL, especially since they had a big campaign in 2011-12 to get her voted out of office, and she got re-elected with a bigger share of the vote than before. Do’oh!
I think this protest is going to look very silly once the real flags make their return to the chapel.
