Fake Vigils Honor Kellyanne Conway’s Bogus ‘Bowling Green Massacre’ Victims

Protesters held fake vigils on Friday night to honor the victims of the Bowling Green Massacre that never was.

They gathered outside the Bowling Green subway station in Lower Manhattan, New York City, to wave signs and chant slogans including Never remember, always forget and What do we want? Alternative facts. When do we want them? Right now.

Other demonstrators assembled in the Kentucky town of Bowling Green itself with placards reading: Victims of BG Massacre and #NeverRemember.

Protesters at both events were roundly mocking the since rolled-back claims of President Donald Trumps trusted adviser, Kellyanne Conway, who on Thursday cited the non-existent 2011 attackby Iraqi refugees in the town in a bid to justify Trumps controversial Muslim travel ban.

Conway told MSNBCs Hardball with Chris Matthews that:

I bet its brand-new information to people that President Obama had a six-month ban on the Iraqi refugee program after two Iraqis came here to this country, were radicalized and were the masterminds behind the Bowling Green massacre. Most people dont know that because it didnt get covered.

Conway later called it an honest mistake, and claimed that shed meant to say Bowling Green terrorists.

Chris Bauer, who attended the New York event, told the New York Daily News that he was commemorating the victims of Bowling Green. It never happened so they were never commemorated, he said. We all are Bowling Green, never remember never forget.

Protesters are planning to hold a further fake vigil outside Trump Tower in New York on Saturday night, whilst Twitter users continue to poke fun at Conway over her phrasing:
