Watch Out!!! The Loudoun Redcoats Are Coming!!!
The Loudoun County Republican Committee continues with its violent war-like imagery (don’t forget, this is the Lunatic County Rage Committee after all!) with this header at the top of its most recent email newsletter:
Ahhh, hey guys … aren’t the redcoats the bad guys??? Is that supposed to be you, or are you guys “We The People”??? If you are “We The People” then who are the redcoats supposed to be??? Will you be going to war with the British or whoever is symbolized by those redcoats??? Will there be guns and blood involved??? Did the same person who did that snazzy Soviet military themed mailer for Patricia Phillips do this graphic for you???
So many questions. Maybe they can provide an answer at tonight’s LCRC meeting.
UPDATE: OMG, I’ve been told that those uniforms are “a close imitation of the uniforms of the US Army Old Guard Fife and Drum Corps from Fort Myer”. Yep, that’s what most people will think of when they see redcoated soldiers superimposed over the Constitution, not British Revolutionary War soldiers!
UPDATE II: As discovered by Lloyd and verified by others, the young gents depicted in that image are re-enactors of British Drummer Boys at the British surrender at Yorktown at the end of the Revolutionary War. So I was right after all. Why is the LCRC showing British Drummer Boys in their header image???
