Knock, Knock, Knoxville

The dreary mid-March morning lined the sky with gray clouds as our small caravan headed down the interstate and into the center of Knoxville at the break of dawn. We really didn't know what to expect, but at this early hour there were few people, few cops, and no Antifa. So whatever did happen would only be a reaction to our intendedly peaceful presence. Here the League of the South would try something a little different, and would hold a small demonstration with no prior announcement, no permits, and hopefully no overwhelming or oppressive police reaction. Doing this, we hoped to actually interface with the general public and pass out some of our literature. This is, after all, the purpose for that right to assemble which is supposedly guaranteed in the united States' Constitution.

Of course local chapters of the League have often done this on an even smaller scale, however this time there would be uniforms, flags and banners. Those same uniforms, flags and banners which the national news media had unjustly vilified after the cancelled demonstration in Charlottesville last August....

The League of the South in Tallahassee, January 27th 2018

We probably took fewer pictures at Tallahassee than anywhere else. Melissa didn't take any because she was too busy holding that flag. We need Melissa to take pictures, so next time I might hold the sign and the flag if I must... The few pictures I did take - most of them anyway - are found at our image gallery under Tallahassee 2018

The League of the South had held a few events since Shelbyville, perhaps a social occasion or two and some participation in a few smaller demonstrations, but nothing major and nothing that we had the opportunity for which to participate. So for several weeks we looked forward to the planned Florida State Sovereignty rally in Tallahassee. Even better, this one was so close to home that we only had to visit a gas station once all weekend.

We spent a few hours Tuesday and Wednesday cruising the websites of Antifa and other Leftist organizations, and found not one mention of the League’s rally plans at the Old Florida State Capitol building at the intersection of South Monroe Street and the Apalachee Parkway. Not until Thursday did we hear that the Jewish agitators at the SPLC had made a notice of our rally on their website. But even more insipid than their articles, which are always written in a manner so as to cause alarm and encourage donations, are the uninspired comments made by an army of barely-literate Marxists.

Charlottesville - Raw Footage at the Front Line

This is over 16 minutes of high-resolution video from the front lines at Charlottesville, taken after the League of the South and the rest of the National Front had entered Lee Park, and before the violence from the leftists escalated to the point where the police had decided to cancel the event and force the Right out of the park. This 16-minute clip covers over a quarter of the time that the National Front was in the park, which was only about an hour.

Charlottesville: The March to Lee Park as seen from the middle of the Column



This is a video of the march from a Charlottesville parking garage to Lee Park by various members of the League of the South, the Traditional Workers' Party, the National Socialist Movement, Identity Europa and other groups which sought to attend the recent #UnitetheRight rally.

We were not on the front lines, but back in the middle of the column, and from there my wife Melissa recorded this video. Aside from some of the mundane locker-room style rhetoric which is common among Nationalists attending such events, you may notice that there was little to no aggression on our part, and that we were relatively quite calm and peaceful. Of course, this is absolutely contrary to reports slandering all of us which have been running continually in the mainstream media.

There may have been some violence at the vanguard of our procession, but we were even oblivious to that. We only found out later that Marxist groups tried to block our passage into the park, and for that some minor scuffles ensued. Evidently even the men in front of us had conducted themselves with great restraint, because that initial violence did not escalate, and we entered into the park peacefully. Our opposition, however, continually taunted us with verbal abuse and provocations, and were anything but peaceful. They alone were responsible for the initial violence, and for all of the later violence.

When the Confederacy was Honored Even by the U. S. Government

The public opinion of the South was not always so evil. The United States Federal Government minted a memorial coin, a silver half dollar, in honor of Stone Mountain and the bravery of the soldiers of the South - in 1925! It was even struck at the Yankee mint in Philadelphia.

After the Monuments: Louisiana Caving in Defense of Confederate Heritage

After the Monuments: Louisiana Caving in Defense of Confederate Heritage

Even though a bill to defend Louisiana’s Confederate heritage had passed the State’s Legislature in mid-May by a margin of over 2-to-1, it has not been advanced by the Senate, and the governor has been heard whining about it. The Associated Press has reported that “Gov. John Bel Edwards derided a bill that could protect Confederate monuments, calling the proposal impractical and unnecessarily divisive on Tuesday, a day after black lawmakers stormed off the Louisiana House floor in protest over a Republican's plan.”

The New Orleans Times-Picayune is already celebrating the demise of the bill. Apparently the supposedly Republican Senate President John Alario has sent the bill to the Senate’s Government Affairs Committee, which is chaired by a Democrat from New Orleans, and where it does not stand a chance in hell for advancement. A similar bill died in committee last year, following the same exact process, and therefore Alario knows what he is doing. So it is politics as usual in New Orleans. Alario, who was once a Democrat, is also from New Orleans and seems to be about as Southern at heart as a carpet-bagging New York kebab vendor.

Robert E. Lee Monument Removed in NOLA

The best of the available videos are from NOLA.com and are far too long. This one is from Charles Walton's Youtube channel. We will embed the video from NOLA.com below.

While the other Confederate monuments in New Orleans were removed in the middle of the night, this one was removed in broad daylight, although it took 11 hours simply to remove the statue from the pedestal, which happened just after 6:00 PM Friday evening, May 19th 2007.

The Sons of Confederate Veterans Neutralized by Political Correctness

This is adapted in part from a paragraph in our recent article The Brattle of New Orleans, an account of our experiences at Lee Circle on May 7th.

Quite disgracefully, in our opinion, the Louisiana chapter of the Sons of Confederate Veterans were entirely missing from the pro-monument demonstrations at Lee Circle in New Orleans on May 7th, 2017. Rather than helping to fight a real battle by standing up to defend their heritage and its symbols at Lee Circle, they were out at Jackson Crossroads for the day, play-acting as toy soldiers.

A few days after the event I visited the Facebook page for the Sons of Confederate Veterans, and I saw a post from the Louisiana Division Commander, J. C. Hanna. He had a picture taken of himself as he sat comfortably under a shade tree in Jackson Crossroads, while talking on a cell phone. In the caption he boasted that he was being interviewed by CNN regarding the removal of the monuments in New Orleans! [Updated Screenshot from May 17th.]

Free and Slave States in 1861

A timeline on the War Between the States and the issue of slavery:

The War is popularly dated to have begun on April 12th, 1861.

The Emancipation Proclamation was not issued by Lincoln until January 1, 1863.

Maryland, a Union state, did not end slavery until the adoption of a new State Constitution on November 1st, 1864.

Missouri, which never officially seceeded from the Union, abolished slavery by statute on January 11, 1865.

On April 9, 1865, near Appomattox Court House, Virginia, Confederate General Robert E. Lee surrendered his Army of Northern Virginia to Union General Ulysses S. Grant.

Delaware, a Union state, rejected the 13th and 14th Amendments, and slavery ended there only when the 13th Amendment took effect nationally in December, 1865.

Kentucky, which never officially seceeded from the Union, rejected the 13th Amendment, and slavery ended there only when it took effect nationally in December, 1865.

The War Between the States was never about slavery, and this simple timeline should be proof enough of that.

Defense of the Robert E. Lee Monument in NOLA

On May 7th, 2017 we were honored to have the pleasure of standing together with members of the League of the South in a statement defending the monument commemorating General Robert E. Lee at Lee Circle in New Orleans. We are grateful for Dr. Michael Hill, President of the League of the South as well as for operation commander Michael Tubbs and all of the fine League members in their company.

Jews Are Not White, Prof. Tells Rabbis

Have we not yet had enough of this Jewish "Pluralism"?

The following article is from the newspaper Jewish Post & Opinion, published June 28, 1968:

Jews Are Not White, Prof. Tells Rabbis

BOSTON —A political scientist at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, who has been speaking to Jewish conventions over the past few months, told the Reform Rabbis meeting here that Jews are not white.

Mayor's Comments on Battle of Liberty Place Monument Removal

Mayor Mitch Landrieu sounds like a Social Justice Warrior as he held a news conference on the early-morning removal of the Battle of Liberty Place monument in New Orleans. He even borrowed quotes from the Bible so that he may sound holy while promoting his Marxist agenda.

Christianity, the South, and the Culture War

By Rev. Steve Wilkins

Culture implies far more than common food, dress, or accent. The root of our English word "culture" is the Latin "cultus," which to the Romans signified worship of the divine. This reminds us of the foundation of culture which is so often forgotten in our day. As Russell Kirk has noted, "[C]ulture arises from the cult; that is, people are joined together in worship, and out of their religious association grows the organized human community."1

Culture implies a common way of life, common standards, a common worldview, if you will. But this commonality is founded ultimately not upon economic status, race, or nationality, but, as the word indicates, a common faith. Christopher Dawson puts it this way, "It is clear that a common way of life involves a common view of life, common standards of behavior, and common standards of value, and consequently a culture is a spiritual community which owes its unity to common beliefs and common ways of thought far more than to any unanimity of physical type.... Therefore from the beginning the social way of life which is culture has been deliberately ordered and directed in accordance with the higher laws of life which are religion."2
