On Sucession and Southern Independence

On Secession and Southern Independence

 

By Dr. Michael Hill, President, The League of the South

 

The voluntary union (or confederacy) of States known as the United States was born of a secessionist movement against Great Britain, and our Declaration of Independence is, at base, a secessionist document. How, then, can secession legitimately be called "un-American?"

When our Founding Fathers broke the bonds of political association with the British Empire in 1776, the former colonies became free and independent States constituting thirteen separate communities, each asserting its sovereignty. This state of affairs received confirmation by both the Articles of Confederation (1778) and the Treaty of Paris (1783). Thus Americans themselves, as well as their British foe, acknowledged that each State was a separate and sovereign entity.

The sovereignty of the separate States is an important issue in understanding exactly how the United States was formed under its Constitution of 1787-88. When delegates from the States met in Philadelphia in May 1787, they came as representatives selected by the people (i.e. citizens) of their respective States. These delegates were not given authority by the people of their States to make any binding agreements, rather, they were only to discuss proposed changes to the Articles of Confederation. Any changes to the Articles might become effective only if they were ratified in convention by the citizens of the separate States.

Imagine – by Musonius Rufus

This statement appeared on Facebook after the Charlottesville #UnitetheRight rally was destroyed by the police collusion with Marxists on August 12th, 2017. We were at Lee Park in Charlottesville that day, and can vouch that every statement here is accurate.

Imagine you were a US citizen and you wanted to protest the removal of a monument.

Imagine you joined a group that advocated protecting it but you had to use a pen name so you wouldn't be fired from your job.

Imagine you took off from work to advocate for your cause in public.

Imagine you made reservations to stay somewhere only to have those reservations canceled at the last minute.

Imagine you got a permit to hold a peaceable assembly only to have that canceled at the last minute.

Imagine you got a court order that said you could still have your assembly but the police arrived at the beginning and dispersed it anyway.

Imagine the police laughed as they threw you to a mob where you were pepper-sprayed and beaten, and those police just stood by and watched.

Imagine journalists took pictures of you and your enemies used those pictures to try to get your employers to fire you.

Imagine you knew all this would have been illegal, if you hadn't been White. You knew the laws don't protect you because you're White.

Imagine the godless Media said you were evil—and that's the exact word they used.

Imagine companies tweeted out pictures of you with gun sights on your head. Imagine they joked about killing you and all your friends.

Imagine a governor, who used convicted criminals to rig an election, said that you criminals weren't welcome in his state anymore.

Imagine a US Senator who collaborated with the enemy in wartime called you a traitor.

Imagine all your accusers said you were the bigot. They called you a coward for standing up to the powerful. They accused you of trying to censor them when you were the one silenced.

Imagine you had friends and family turn their backs on you because what the TV said was more important than what you said.

If you imagine this, then you will understand why this country is about to change. We are going to change it. We won't be scared away either. You'll find we're made of sterner stuff. In fact, we're the kind of men who have statues made of them.

We are Founding Fathers. We are creating a new country that will replace this wicked one. Whose side do you think God is on? You had better hope you're on that side.

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.

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.]

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.

What Would It Take To Get You To Fight?

Dr. J. Michael Hill, LS President

(Presented on 30 July 2011 at The League of the South national conference in Abbeville, South Carolina)

WHAT would it take to get you to fight? I’m not speaking figuratively but literally. What would it take to turn you into a William Wallace or a Robert Bruce, an Issac Shelby or a Francis Marion, a Bedford Forrest or a John Pelham, a Michael Collins or a Tom Barry?

Before you answer, ponder some things and count the costs. First, what is so valuable to you that it is indispensable to life itself? Ordered liberty? Loved ones? The place that sustains you and that you call home? The free and unfettered practice of your Christian faith?

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

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.
