MEMORIES OF MOB RULE
From today's New York Times:
... Mike Huckabee us[ed] colorful language [in South Carolina] to declare the Confederate flag a states' rights issue....
"You don't like people from outside the state coming in and telling you what to do with your flag," Mr. Huckabee, a former governor of Arkansas, told supporters in Myrtle Beach, according to The Associated Press.
"In fact," he said, "if somebody came to Arkansas and told us what to do with our flag, we'd tell them what to do with the pole; that's what we'd do." ...
You mean, sort of like this, from my Boston youth?
Taken in April of 1976, the photograph is of Theodore Landsmark, an African American lawyer heading to Boston's city hall for a case. Here he encountered over one hundred and fifty anti-busing youths from South Boston and Charlesto[w]n protesting the decision to bus in students from Roxbury, an African American [neighborhood]. Entering into this, Landsmark was attacked, ironically, with an American flag, in Boston, home of the Revolution, on the 200th anniversary of the United States. The photo won freelance photographer Stanley J. Forman of the Boston Herald American a Pulitzer Prize.
Yeah, that was a proud moment, Huck. That's just what Jesus would do.
