Pity. They seem to be doing quite well.
Scott noted this morning that the principal of Forest Lake High School canceled the scheduled appearance this morning by Forest Lake alum Pete Hegseth and his fellow Vets For Freedom. The cancellation was prompted by an unspecified number of complaints from “parents and others;” the others apparently were leftists organized by Democratic Underground.
On only a few hours’ notice, the Vets had to transfer their program from the high school to the local American Legion. They doubted whether anyone would show up to hear them, but it turns out they needn’t have worried. Pete writes:
With barely 12 hours’ notice, over 200 people showed up — the Legion was standing room only — the crowd was spilling into the hallway. About two-dozen Forest Lake High School students skipped school to attend, holding signs that said “Support the Vets” and “We love our troops.” The outpouring of support from the community in Forest Lake was incredible, and we hope for an even larger crowd at tonight’s event.
