Institute on the Constitution: Don't Obey MD's Gun Control Law and Arrest Those Who Enforce It

In a column out today, League of the South board member and director of the Institute on the Constitution, Michael Peroutka advises readers not to obey Maryland’s new gun control law which goes into effect today.
He writes:

Therefore, we are calling on all peace officers in Maryland and all those who have taken an oath to the Constitution to resist this lawlessness. 
Specifically, we call on sheriffs and police officers in Maryland to declare their intention to uphold the law by refusing to enforce these measures. Moreover, we ask these same oath takers to keep the oaths they have sworn before God by actively protecting and defending us against those who would violate the law by seeking to enforce these vain enactments.
All those who try to enforce these lawless gun control measures should themselves be arrested and prosecuted for, among other things, conspiring to violate the rights of decent, innocent, law abiding Marylanders.

Peroutka invokes part of the 2nd Amendment as justification for his call to disobey gun control laws. He has been agitating for resistance to these laws from some time. It is hard to tell what will come of his call to lawlessness.

American Proposition v. Southern Nationalism

The Southern Nationalist Network’s new video portrays the difference between the American view and the Southern Nationalist view. Michael Peroutka’s League of the South is prominently featured in the second part of the video as the flagship for Southern Nationalism.

Just in case there is any doubt about who the Southern Nationalists are fighting for, pay attention to League of the South president Michael Hill’s words at 2:36 into the clip.

The true South today is defined by Southern nationalism. It’s not defined by conservatism, it’s not defined by the GOP (?), it’s not defined by libertarianism, it’s defined by Southern nationalism. And Southern nationalism is a manifestation of the culture of our South, the white, Anglo-Celtic South. That is Southern nationalism.

In this video, the proposition that all men are created equal is ridiculed and a distinction drawn between Martin Luther King, Barack Obama, and Ronald Reagan and the League of the South.
According to the SNN, the following is Not The South:

According to the SNN, this is The South:

Given what Hill said above the caption should read: a nation of white people.

A Thought Experiment

Let’s try a thought experiment.
If a board member of the Society for Holocaust Truth (a fictional Holocaust denial organization) put together a great resource on the Constitution and offered it to the NRB network, should the NRB broadcast the course? Assume that the person said nothing of his views of the Holocaust during any of the sessions.
What if a black nationalist had a course on the Constitution? Would NRB broadcast that one?

White Nationalist Vision For America

Matthew Heimbach, a recipient of the League of the South’s Nathan Bedford Forrest Award, recently appeared on the Brutha Dawah show. Heimbach believes black and white nationalists can work together to separate. In this video, he briefly explains how.

Heimbach is not one to shy away from controversial topics and here he articulates what many League of the South members imply.  According to the League, blacks and whites can’t or shouldn’t co-mingle. Some League members even suggest that unequal treatment is wrong but support racial segregation nonetheless.
When I encounter material like this from members of Michael Peroutka’s League of the South, I wonder how Mr. Peroutka can justify membership in this group. Perhaps at some point in the future he will break his silence on the matter.

Weekend Roundup – Tanks, Government Lies, Anti-Gay Pride, Christian Persecution, Government Shut Down

These are some items of interest that I either didn’t get to or need no additional noise from me.
David Barton: Tanks A Lot – David Barton told his Wallbuilders audience that private citizens should be allowed to have whatever weapons the government has – tanks, fighter jets, whatever. Just like the founders had.
How Do You Know When The Government Is Lying? – That’s the burning question Michael Peroutka asks on his IOTC website. He claims that the government and the media conspire together ” to endanger you, impoverish you or otherwise to harm you.” I also learned that the media hyped up the dangers of Swine Flu in 2009 to “provide cover” for the government to meddle in health care.
Scott Lively and Bryan Fischer Celebrate Anti-Gay Pride –  At 10:25, Lively calls his indirect influence on Russia’s anti-gay law “one of the proudest achievements of my career.” Guess it is all downhill from there.
Christians are under attack all over the world and the Church seems silent – Kirsten Powers’ thought provoking editorial provoked me. I will return to this issue next week. My initial view is that most Christians in the pew are praying but don’t know what else to do. Our evangelical leaders are consumed with Values Voting and Culture Warring and Taking The Country Back.
Oh, and the government might shut down…
