Saturday July 4th 2009 was without a doubt the best Independence Day that I have spent in my adult life. It was great to be able to spend the afternoon with 1000+ friends who share the same beliefs as I do. To listen to great speeches and to fellowship with others who are determined to take our country back is the best way I could think of to spend the fourth. We have been the silent majority too long and we are beginning to find our voice. Unfortunately our local paper did not think that a 1000 person rally was important enough to cover. I would encourage rally participants to contact the Daily Progress and let them know that you do not appreciate their ignoring the second largest activist rally that has occurred in Charlottesville in the last five years, the April 15th rally being the first largest. If you subscribe to the newspaper I would seriously consider canceling it or contacting their advertisers and let them know that you are very unhappy with the paper ignoring a major news event.
We are facing a difficult challenge in trying to get the truth out and we cannot let the local media get away with ignoring our message. So make phone calls and write letters. Demand to know why a major story is ignored. But no matter what, we will not be deterred. Whether or not the media pays attention to us we will continue the struggle.
Thank you to everyone for taking time out of their holiday and coming down to be a part of this great movement.
