Chapel Hill’s gutless Chamber

Way to stand up to goon protesters, Chapel Hill Chamber of Commerce. Leftoids did their knee-jerk protest today at the opening of the U.S. Army recruiting office on E. Franklin Street. The Chamber was supposed to participate, as it does with all newcomers to the business community, but it was just too scary, it seems. From The N&O:

The protest coincided with an official ribbon cutting scheduled for the new recruiting station. But after learning about the protest, the chamber canceled its involvement, saying it could not guarantee its members’ safety.

So much for moral leadership. A group of lefty sign wavers and the Chamber cuts and runs. Ever heard of standing on principle? Ever heard of the concept of not being blackmailed by fringe lunatics?
