What an incredibly inappropriate thing to be doing in a National Cemetery.
Where’s a law enforcement Ranger when you need him?
You are absolutely right, Mannie. What is striking to me, however, is that you won’t hear any of these so-called self-proclaimed defenders of southern heritage and history speak out against these two idiots trampling over Confederate graves and reinforcing every stereotype in the book.
The defenders of southern heritage won’t say anything because the idiot twins are dancing in a National Cemetery for Union soldiers. The location looks like it could be Stones River. A US Attorney should throw the book at these two morons, as I am sure they didn’t get the required permits. If they did, the superintendent of the park should be fired.
What are the rules of engagement for a law enforcement ranger, when faced with something of extremely poor taste and bad singing?
Fire first, then ask questions?
Or have them clean a 12pdr with brasso and a toothbrush?
Hi Mark, — I was wondering where those scenes were filmed. Hope all is well with you.
Being a defender of Southern Heritage, I will speak out and stand up against anyone anywhere desecrating graves. A cemetery is a sacred place of solemnity and honor, and each stone represents a life now passed. Act a fool anywhere else but over the dead. And if you must act a fool, leave the honorable uniforms of Confederate Soldiers out of any of your bizzare actions.
I certainly agree with your excellent comments concerning cemeteries being a sacred place of solemnity and honor to the memory of our fallen Confederate soldiers. The Red State Update folks should be ashamed of themselves for such disrespect. “If you understand, no explanation is necessary; if you do not understand, no explanation is possible.”
