Just Imagine What the Virginia Flaggers Could Accomplish… September 12, 2014 11 comments … if they could get more than 10 people to show up to one of their protests. 11 comments… add one Brooks D. Simpson September 12, 2014, 2:17 pm Looks like there are more flags than people there. Maybe they should open a John B. Magruder chapter. Reply Kevin Levin September 12, 2014, 2:20 pm That’s a good one. I wonder if they will get it. Reply Buck Buchanan September 12, 2014, 2:30 pm Unfortunately for them they are not facing McClellan and Pinkerton. Reply Andrew Raker September 12, 2014, 2:47 pm 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. Reply Al Mackey September 12, 2014, 3:10 pm Aren’t they “outside agitators” in Lexington? 😉 Reply Andy Hall September 14, 2014, 11:41 am They are indeed, at least relative to the Committee, which is composed of actual students at the school. Reply Mike Rogers September 12, 2014, 3:11 pm 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. Reply Marian Latimer September 12, 2014, 5:39 pm I count three people and a folding chair. Wow. Where is the crowd control in riot gear? Reply Muhammad E. Lee September 13, 2014, 5:20 am 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. Reply Andy Hall September 13, 2014, 5:52 am “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! Reply Kevin Levin September 13, 2014, 5:56 am I think this protest is going to look very silly once the real flags make their return to the chapel.
