Rally draws 1,200 to State House (George Washington Statue Covered Up)
The State (South Carolina's Homepage) ^ | January 18, 2011 | John O'Connor

Marchers once again took on the Confederate flag during Monday’s King Day at the Dome rally, but they also spoke out against the 150th anniversary of South Carolina’s secession and legislative proposals to cut state spending on education and pass tougher anti-illegal immigration laws.

Liberals talk about overcome divisiveness but they are the same folks who instigate division in this country every other day of the year.

The usual rabble was crying about the Confederate flag here in Columbia as per usual. I would love if these people went down to march on Foghorn Leghon Fritz Hollings since he is the one who put it up there. For decades no one seemed to care but I guess the race industry needed a shot in the arm.

I probably didn’t post this as well as I should have but the NAACP put the large statue of George Washington located on the capitol steps in a box for the rally so as not to offend the attendees. You’ve got to see the picture at “The State” and “Atlas Shrugs” to believe it.

How is the world is a statue of GW offensive to anyone? You have to work hard to convolute that argument.

They should send all their dollar bills to me.

I believe that and most of my family do as well. If our founders knew what would happen...

I have discovered that there is an undercurrent of bad information being taught in the schools...especially all black schools. Its more than the usual stuff about the founding fathers owning slaves, etc.

They are taught a very perverse version of the 3/5s compromise...and essentially taught that the constitution is evil and invalid as a result.

The most bizarre item is that the rally was apparently orchestrated by someone in Detroit, Michigan. They said two busloads of people came from Detroit!

I wonder if those that attended might be on the government dole?

He was a slave owner and we're living in a country of historical revisionism, reparations for the descendants of slaves, an affirmative action president and a population of blacks that think the freakin universe revolves around them, so, shut your cracker ass up and get back to work because .gov needs all the tax dollars they can steal to waste on more inner city schools and pay 'entitlements' to the oppressed great-great-great-great grandchildren of slaves and those seeking a better way of life crossing the Mexican/American border illegally.

I'm thinking they all had Lincoln's. And being products of public screwls, they're totally unaware of how Lincoln felt about blacks.

Claudette Lee, 56, rode to the rally on one of two buses from Detroit, organized by Michigan talk show host Mildred Gaddis. This was Lee’s second year coming to the rally. Those who came with her chanted, “The D is in the house.” Lee said she hopes to build support for the rally in her home state to remove the flag here.

Wish these yankees would stay at home.

Read the article, they had to bus them in from Detroit. They couldn’t draw that big of a crowd with our own SC people.

Besides them being bussed in from Detroit, here is a picture of them boxing George in and I don't think there were anywhere near the so called 1200 people.

Disgusting. (Boxing the father of our country.)

If they hate this country so much, go live somewhere else. I can guarantee you, you won’t get all of the ‘free speech’ you get here in the US of A.
