‘United Patriots’ to hold Leesburg rally in support of Confederate monument

A group calling itself “United Patriots” plans to hold a rally on the Loudoun County Courthouse grounds in Leesburg Aug. 12 “in support of keeping” the statue of a Confederate soldier at the site, according to town officials.

The Leesburg statue, featuring a roughly 10-foot-tall, mounted Confederate soldier holding a gun, has been the topic of debate in recent years, with local residents and activists questioning its appropriateness in modern-day Loudoun County.

According to Town of Leesburg officials, the “United Patriots” rally is expected to include 50 participants or less, and the Loudoun County Sheriff's Office will provide coverage of the event.

Two summers ago, the Loudoun County NAACP and other groups held a rally on the courthouse grounds, where they called for a new monument remembering Loudoun County's slaves and local residents who fought on the side of the Union. This, they said, will help display a more accurate picture of Loudoun's history.

The 2015 rally was met with opposition by a small group of Confederate statue supporters who waved Confederate Battle Flags in front of the statue and in the center of the county seat.

Not going to report on what "United Patriots" is then? Here is their website, they're the 3% or 111 percent guys. Like the militia crazy armed weird overthrow the government kind of folks. http://www.3percent.org/

They might also be the law firm people who provide legal services to veterans, though according to their website, many of their legal cases have to do with war crimes.

Yet they might also be the guys founded by the Bulgarian Ultra Nationalists. I guess, what group are we talking about because none of them seem... helpful to the cause of preserving southern heritage.

Also, who is the soldier?

I agree. We need to put a very large one right on the Wicomico Courthouse lawn because that is where the Yankees hung out at Byrds Tavern while they Occupied Salisbury to prevent secession! We should have seceded with Virginia, but Lincoln prevented Maryland doing that by force.

You better believe it and I am locked and loaded waiting. I have been stocking up for several years now. I think 40,000 rounds of ammo will hold off the enemy for a long time.

Nobody wants to invade wherever the 40,000 rounds of ammo guy lives. There isn't anything of value because a company or subdivision would have bought him out / bulldozed his wheel-less trailer years ago. Like people want to invade a swamp for your precious Dairy Queen.

Hey dummy, google 111% and see what comes up. And you can have over a 100% of something. Like "The temperature of this stove has increased by 300%". So it is 4 times as hot. Look at you learning.

Or you could literally type 111 into google. Buddy, it's the same key, just hit it three times.

I'm a fan of the accurate and respectful preservation of history, but I am not a fan of getting into bed with these devils.
