PALESTINE, TX–Palestine City Manager Wendy Ellis, who already dedicated an entire week of a Confederate Flag raised above city hall to District 5 Councilman Doug Smith for what she says is his continued support of her and helping her stay employed as the city’s embattled leader, shocked those in attendance at the July 4th Fireworks show in Palestine.

Immediately before the fireworks display, Ellis entered and was raised high above the crowd using a fire truck ladder and announced that she was dedicating the firework display not only to the nation’s independence, but to Councilman Smith’s support of her and the rights of all those in attendance that were homosexual.

Ellis then announced that she was removing the US Flag and raising both the Confederate and Rainbow flag, symbolic of gay rights, for the duration of the show.

“It’s time we show our support for this champion of my rights, Doug Smith.  His continued support is why I am able to be here tonight to address you,” Ellis announced.  “Also, to the homos here, we love you at city hall.  A little butt love never hurt anyone,” she said.

Despite orders to do so, Fire Chief Alan Wilcher refused to raise the two controversial flags and Ellis was forced to do so herself, but appeared to not mind.  “If I could get four votes [on city council] to fire his ass, I would,” Ellis remarked while raising the flags.

Following the raising of the two flags, an obviously sweaty and exhausted Ellis told the crowd, “This is what this celebration is about.”

After gathering her snacks, Ellis left town and left the show in the hands of Communications Manager Laura Westgate.

  1. In keeping with Queen Wendy’s progressive stand, Main Street has initiated the “Rainbow Wonder” project. It features Palestine’s first LBGTQ bakery, offering a fluffy white dome cake packed with fudge. Also offered will be the “bumping uglies donut delight”. Each closed downtown storefront will be transformed into a closet from which differing groups can ” come out”. And, to complete the “gay destination” concept, the roadways will be painted in a rainbow motiff and the building LED’s will bathe downtown in rainbow colors as well. The plan will be implemented immediately and paid for through the resulting budget surplus that is projected from an increase in sales tax revenue due to increased tourism.
