Manage episode 377279406 series 2607160
On August 26, 2023 a group of men protested the Douglas County Pride Festival that happened at the Douglas County Fairgrounds. They protested peacefully by simply wearing shirts that read Stand to Protect Children on the front and Jesus Loves You (and so do I) on the back. They were met with vulgarity, assault and intimidation. The media has taken one side of the story. In this episode Jimmy recalls the events of that day.
