Yesterday evening, the HCGOP had the honor to host the Blue Star Mothers of Coastal Carolina www.bluestarmothersofcoastalcarolina.com, a non-profit led by Parents who have children serving our country in the United States Armed Forces, and serves to support one another, provide support to our troops, and promote patriotism in our community. The Blue Star Mothers touched the hearts of many of our members at our EC meeting yesterday and they desperately need our help to ensure the placement of a Christmas wreath at each Veteran gravesite in the Florence National Cemetery. They need sponsorship for 13,000 wreaths and please help them avoid choices of graves to receive a wreath, due to a shortfall. Please take action and donate what you can to help this incredibly worthy cause and to honor our fallen military heroes. The deadline for donations to meet Christmas is November 18 2021. Links and instructions to sponsor a wreath or multiple wreaths are found below.
Please support The Myrtle Beach Republican Women at their next event, featuring a dynamic Constitutional Law speaker, on Tuesday at the Marina Inn Grande Dunes in the Ball Room on the ground floor.

Many of you may be aware of a misleading news report from this morning about an unfortunate event that occurred yesterday at the "Rock the Red" conference in Greenville, SC. Due to many messages we have received, social media posts that have been brought to our attention, and the fact that our Chair and Executive Committeewoman were first person witnesses to the event, we have decided to make an official statement.
At the end of an otherwise amazing weekend, after the keynote speaker, General Michael T. Flynn had spoken, an infiltrator came to the front and grabbed a microphone and began to make a speech. He started off asking for a toast for General Flynn, and immediately began calling him a traitor to the country. Two gentlemen attempted to grab the microphone from the man as soon as they realized it was a disturbance and not a guest of the conference, and noticing a threat, Mr. Chad Caton, a Horry County EC, utilized his military training to defuse the situation by subduing the perpetrator. He brought the man to hotel security, while ensuring that none of the other guests, who at this point were very angry, harmed the man. The perpetrator was in possession of a weapon, and police did escort him from the hotel property in a police car. Additionally, witnesses heard the man self identify as Antifa. On the perpetrator's person, was a printed statement that included a threat stating the man had the intention of performing a "citizens arrest" on General Michael Flynn.
This morning, we learned that there was more to this story, and that hotel security had identified another individual waiting near the kitchen exit door where high profile guests would typically exit a venue for security reasons. The event planners are attempting to obtain security footage to further analyze and take steps if necessary.
We are thankful that Mr. Caton was in the right place at the right time and was able to help defuse what could have been a very dangerous situation. He maintained control until security could take over. It was a blessing he was there, and any reporting to the contrary is a horrible representation of how Fake News is spread.
Some individuals have come forward to state that Mr. Caton's involvement was an "embarrassment" to the Horry County GOP. To the contrary, both Roger Slagle and Tracy Diaz, who were attendees of the event, think that the actions Chad took were nothing short of heroic, regardless of how you may feel about him personally.
We have seen many calls for unity over the past few months, and we have every intention of moving forward in that spirit. We would like to state that the rhetoric and attacks on social media do absolutely nothing to encourage unity, and instead are a fine example of how, in fact, to stoke and fan the flames of division. We'd like everyone to think before they post, as each of you are representatives of the Horry County GOP, and carefully decide how your own actions may be accomplishing the opposite of what we all claim to desire.
We are glad that one of our own stepped up in the face of a threat to defend a distinguished American hero in General Michael T. Flynn. We will continue to support those who act in a selfless manner as we work to take back our country from the very people who disrupted the event yesterday.
