A certain unemployed high school history teacher/blogger/Confederate hating amateur "historian" has declared that we are fast approaching "one final Confederate Memorial Day celebration".
Really? Where has this man been over the past month? Our service at Oakwood last Saturday had over 200 in attendance, which was DOUBLE the attendance of the year before, which was double the year before that, which was the first year the service has been held in years. Our newsfeed is FLOODED with reports and photos of ceremonies and events across the South...more than we've ever seen before, and on any given weekend, we have to decide WHICH Confederate event to attend because there are several to choose from.
Then again, it's really hard to take anything he says seriously, considering his track record on predictions. After all, this is the same man who once said:
"Prediction: There will be no Confederate flag on I-95 near Richmond" ... Kevin Levin Aug 18, 2013.
Hey Kev...how'd that work out for ya?
Here's the thing...we aren't going anywhere, and we will not, as much as you apparently would like to see it happen, let our veterans be forgotten. But PLEASE keep it up. With every attack and ridiculous post like yours, our numbers grow as does our determination to prove you, and the handful of other haters like you, wrong...AGAIN!
