Pass the Popcorn

Sound familiar?

Note: Lewis quickly decided to make this video private … just not quickly enough.

(Learn how to spell Pelham. That Confederate hero deserves better.)

Then there was this classic:

Which led to this:

Followed by this:

And this:

You must feel for that child.

No wonder Tripp Lewis needs a legal fund. In the meantime, we await his lawsuits.

    Think how much easier it would have been for soldiers to wear protective eye gear such as sunglasses…..

    The moment you hear the “sitting in the jail” line you can almost always guarantee the person flapping their lips is doing, well, just that…..flapping their lips.

    So, if I’m following this correctly, Lewis is threatening to call the law on members of a Confederate heritage organization who amassed thousands of dollars in donations to support a particular project, and then didn’t follow through on doing the project for which the money was collected, and are instead sitting on the cash and refusing to provide any accountability for it.

    Is that right?

    Jail time baby!

    The title is so appropriate. So Lewis is angry with other heritage folks for not using money the way he wants it used? He then threatens lawsuits and to send people to jail? OMG, that is so funny. People have been saying the same thing about taxes and politicians for years.

    All talk, no action.

          Somehow I managed to get through that literary mess. Yikes. People who think like that are angry about something all the time. The boogeyman is everywhere in their minds.

            Anger and aggrieved resentment are the fires that power much of Confederate heritage. It’s not coincidence that the Flagger catch phrase is, “are you mad enough yet?”

    Ahhhh, Trippy, making friends wherever he goes…

    The one thing I find really amusing is that how many of these flaggers believe just because something is making them pissy they can have people arrested for it.

    Law enforcement is not the personal army for wack-jobs.

    Just because someone does something you don’t like or agree with doesn’t mean you can go and have them arrested over things like removing flags, or trolling on Facebook.

    Now, I am not sure what the exchange in the first video is about.

    My guess is that the SCV kicked Trippy out of their boy’s club because he was even too loony for them and now he is grabbing at straws to find a way to seek his revenge?

      Lewis stages confrontations because he wants them on film. Remember Flagger favorite filmmaker Rob Walker, Susan’s gift from God? That worked out well.

    Although he won’t admit it, Mr Lewis frequents this blog. He firmly believes that you post lies like these direct sources.

    • Brooks D. Simpson June 9, 2015 / 12:34 pm

      The Flaggers and their supporters always claim I lie when I post what they say. Chastain did this recently. She dismissed links I offered as coming from my blog, but if you looked at the links, my sources were provided by the Flaggers and their friends. Live by social media, die by it.

      Tripp once threatened to sue me, too. That didn’t turn out too well for him.

        They don’t work in academia. Getting sued by a neo-confederate or a heritage organization would be validation of a historian’s work. It would be hilarious to actually have a case like that make it to a courtroom. As soon as Tripp started running his mouth the first objection would ring out asking the judge to require Tripp to speak the truth and provide facts to support his claims.

        Could you just imagine the comparisons between you and Tripp on the witness stand? The lawyer would spend 10 minutes listing your work in history and academia. Then Tripp’s lawyer would avoid listing Tripp’s work in history because he has no work in actual history.

        Making Tripp look stupid is not illegal or Tripp would be in jail.

    i’m astonished by the number of Flaggers in the videos, whats there about ten? Just this past Memorial Day a group of sixty or so volunteers from my American Legion Post placed approximately 2,000 American Flags on the graves of United States veterans in our local cemetery , maybe we should start an organization known as the New York Flaggers to teach these people the real meaning of honor and heritage.

    Its a shame to see heritage on heritage crime.
