We had 27(!) on the Boulevard today, thanks in large part to the Latane Color Guard. We wanted to get a group photo and thought the steps in front of the UDC would be a good place to get a photo.
We stood on the edge of the step, just next to the sidewalk, as is obvious in the opening pic. After this pic was taken, we were about to take a few more to make sure we got a good one, when a UDC rep came out and asked us to leave their property. As you might expect, the Flaggers and Latane Color Guard were in shock and disbelief, and several stayed to question her as to how she could possibly make such a request.
She kept mentioning the 501c-3 bit, as if by letting us stand on the edge of the curb, the IRS was going to take away their tax exempt status.
We left, walked back up in front of the VMFA, and the Richmond Police arrived about 20 minutes later. Seems the United Daughters of the Confederacy called them. This video is of the conversation with the officer.
Seems like the UDC has decided to join the VMFA in harassing the Va Flaggers.
