Two weeks, Confederate Flag supporters went to Washington DC and they were embarrassed. September 19th marked the first day of the 2015 UCI World Campionships in Richmond. The group Central VA Confederate Flag Rallies put out a call to get people to come out.
This photo speaks for itself, there were only 9 people in attendance. That’s is about 20 people less than the Alabama Secession Rally last month. After saying they needed people badly and only 9 people showed up, this should be an embarrassment to their group but instead they took a different approach.
I guess they got me there. There nine people is more than just me. But are they competing against me or are the competing against the Governor of Virginia? I stood by myself for an hour because I didn’t put out a call for any help. I told people to go to the rally on Monument Ave against the Confederate statues and that event got far more people to attend than this group’s meager nine.
You can also note that 2 League of South members were present, Jason Sulser (bottom) and Dennis Durham (top.) There was a highlight of the group’s propaganda including the “SECEDE” signs. It should also be noted that they were a block away from the actual route of the cyclists.
