Who knew? ISIS has targeted Arkansas politics, or so Jan Morgan says

Jan Morgan
, the Republican challenger to Gov. Asa Hutchinson, dropped a surprising comment the other day during an appearance in Fouke,  as reported by the Texarkana Gazette:

Following her presentation, Morgan took questions from the audience, at which time Fouke resident Frank McFerrin asked her about a fight to remove Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee's birthday from being a state-recognized holiday.

"This is insanity, to try to do away with a state's heritage," McFerrin said.

Morgan agreed and said she's been informed by the FBI that she is on ISIS' hit list.

"The snowflakes in our society need to know that if they have a problem with heritage, it should not be a problem for them at all, " Morgan said. "When the people of the state have boots on the ground, it doesn't matter who has the money. Back in 2016, 72 percent of this state voted for Donald Trump, and that means we can take our state back again and give it to the people."

ISIS apparently missed the Fouke event, where Morgan got a hug from a man dressed as the Boggy Creek monster.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
