The Confederate battle flag rose again outside the South Carolina Statehouse Monday, two years after the state chose to remove it following the massacre of nine members of a historically black church in Charleston, NBC News reported. The party is holding the event to mark "two years since the initiation of the politically correct cultural genocide we have seen sweep across the Southland".

Last year's rally drew around 150 people, and organizers said they planned to make it an annual event.

The Confederate flag was removed from State House grounds on July 10, 2015, after nine African-American worshippers were killed in a mass shooting at Charleston's Emanuel AME Church. The gunman, Dylann Roof, was an avowed white supremacist who had posed in photos with the Confederate flag. "From Virginia to Florida and from SC to Oklahoma Southerners have rallied together in defense of what we hold sacred", the post on the Facebook event reads.
