Friday the 13th proved to be an unlucky day for Susan Frise Hathaway’s reputation as a a staunch defender of Confederate heritage. Having told Confederate heritage advocates to “rise up,” Hathaway apparently stayed away from the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts and the War Memorial Chapel on November 13. It was left to Barry “Hot Dog” Isenhour to hold forth with the local media, which offered some coverage of the event.
As you might expect, the Flaggers themselves omitted mention of Hathaway’s absence on their own blog in an entry composed by Grayson Jennings, who is not visible in any of the images of the event. Hathaway and Jennings share something else in common: their names appeared on a list of alleged KKK members and associates released by Anonymous back on November 5. Perhaps they sought to avoid the questions of a curious media.
So we know she’s not afraid to come to Richmond, and it isn’t very far from where she is to the VMFA.
Both Hathaway and Jennings have a chance to redeem their reputations tonight, for this year the InLight display at the VMFA will take place on two consecutive days. Let’s see whether they really are “mad enough yet.”
PS: Someone put out a APB for Tripp[y] Lewis. Seems this event at the VMFA would be right up his alley.
