On the League of the South’s Facebook page, Michael Hill outlines 12 rules of engagement for white Southerners to use in the war for their survival. You can read them all but I will highlight three here:
1. The mantra “Violence [or the serious threat thereof] never settles anything” is patently false. History shows that it indeed does settle many things. Please don’t forget this—your enemy hasn’t.
So what would Dr. Hill like his followers to do with that information?
7. Don’t engage the enemy on ground of his own choosing. Don’t accept his labels—“domestic terrorist,” “right-wing extremist,” “racist,” “anti-semite,” etc. These terms are meant to shame and marginalize you. Know you own mind and laugh them off. This is quite unsettling to the enemy. Once he sees that you don’t wish to be accepted into his “society,” then he loses a major weapon (ostracization) to use against you.
Actually, when one counsels that violence does settle things, one should not be surprised if someone else labels you a domestic terrorist, or extremist. The racist charge Hill obviously doesn’t care about since he advocates for special privilege for whites.
12. We are already at war—we just don’t know it. One instance: Immigration. This is not just a matter of policy. It’s a matter of our very survival as white men and women of European Christian stock on this land we call the South. It is a zero sum game—we win or they win. There is no middle ground for compromise.–Michael Hill
Hill claims the land of other groups (those indigenous to the land – Cherokee, Choctaw, Chickasaw, etc.) and says non-whites must stay out. He begins with a reference to violence and ends with a call to war.
Leaving no doubt as to the aim of their advocacy, the League posted a simplified FAQ on their Facebook page. Here is a taste:
Q. Who are the Southern People?
A. The descendants of European, Christian peoples who settled the Southern regions of North America
Q. What is a kith and kin nation?
A. A People bound together by blood and soil
Q. What do we mean by Anglo-Celtic?
A. The Peoples of the British Isles
Q. Is The League of the South a Christian organization?
A. We defend and promote Western Christian civilization.
Q. Is The League of the South a “racist” organization?
A. The term “racist” is an anti-White, anti-Southern slur.
The League’s slogan in their rejection of non-whites is “it’s wrong to replace us.” Apparently, the League doesn’t understand their native tongue. Replace can mean to put something in another place or to substitute one thing for another. Neither action is happening to Southern whites. They are still there and have not been moved. Most people get that. However, the League has this fantasy that Southern whites are secretly yearning to separate from everyone else. It is not going to happen and I have little fear of their political aspirations.
What bothers me is the influence of League in evangelical churches, via their kinist Christian reconstructionism, expressed recently by the Institute on the Constitution. IOTC’s founder and director and League of the South board member Michael Peroutka pledged the IOTC to work of the League of the South. As a board member, he is partly responsible for the message of the group and it seems clear to me what the message is.
