The Flaggers have a core group of about 50 active members in the Richmond area, but more than 500 people have attended events put on by the group, Jones said.At most, Matt Heimbach is one of the 500 who attended events put on by the Flaggers. He is not part of the core group of active members, as they are identified as being in the Richmond area and Heimbach is from Maryland.
Dave Tatum wrapped the whole issue up well in a Facebook post:
I've seen a number of pictures of Matthew,and to tell ya the truth, if he were to walk up to me on the street I wouldn't know who he was.Right on, Bro. Dave.
The floggers are gonna grasp an any negative item they can and fabricate a connection if one doesn't exist.
To tell ya the truth, I'm getting bored with all the Hoo Ha.
Yep some wack job has aligned himself with the Flaggers and taken advantage of a few photo ops.
I'm sure that every organization has a racist or two in it, that doesn't make the organization racist.
