    The League of the South has gone to "Security Condition Orange" and other white supremacist organizations are saying it's time for action.Hate groups across the country are using Wednesday’s televised shooting of two Virginia journalists as a call to arms in the “race war” the shooter referenced in a manifesto he sent to a national news outlet. One group has gone to “Security Condition Orange,” its second-highest alert level, which it says means “eminent (sic) danger probable.” In his manifesto, faxed shortly after the shooting to ABC News, shooter Vester Flanagan claimed to have killed WDBJ journalists Alison Parker, 24,...

    Last week, the Kentucky businessman announced he would challenge Senate minority leader Mitch McConnell in next year’s Republican Senate primary. This will be Bevin’s first entry into the political rodeo. But the longtime Republican has often been a frustrated party member. “I have a Peroutka for President T-shirt from 2004 in my drawer,” Bevin tells National Review Online in an interview at his Louisville home. He’s referring to Constitution-party candidate Michael Peroutka, for whom he cast his ballot in the general election rather than George W. Bush. “In ’04, I was just so fed up with the choices that we...

    National Review ^ | 07/17/2013 | Jonah Goldberg
    Rand Paul is the most interesting contender for the Republican nomination. And when I say interesting, I mean that in the broadest sense. A case in point: Last week, the Kentucky senator hit some turbulence when the Washington Free Beacon reported that Jack Hunter, Paul’s aide and the co-author of his book, The Tea Party Goes to Washington, was once the Southern Avenger. Who’s that? Starting in the 1990s, as a radio shock-jock, Hunter would wear a wrestling mask made from a Confederate flag, while making jokes about the assassination of Abraham Lincoln and having the South re-secede. “Although Lincoln’s...

    FRANKFORT — Kentucky Democratic Party Chairman Dan Logsdon called on U.S. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell Wednesday to condemn U.S. Sen. Rand Paul's hiring of a staffer with a history of making controversial comments about race. Washington Free Beacon, a conservative online publication, reported Tuesday that Paul staffer Jack Hunter is a former talk-radio host who called himself the "Southern Avenger" and is a former member of the League of the South, a group that advocates Southern secession. "Senator McConnell likes Republicans to call him leader, and he has made himself heard on every issue he deems of consequence, real...

    With members of the ultra-left Middlebury Institute sitting down with members of the League of the South, who are devoted to more limited government, and the two discussing plans for leaving the United States, the topic of secession has once again become just slightly more popular dinner conversation than how much lint Aunt Carla found in her belly button last night. Both groups, despite their divergence on almost everything else political, want to be able to leave the United States peacefully.The liberals, of course want to leave because they are tired of living in a nation that actually defends...

    KKK To Protest Iraq War At Gettysburg (kookdum Alert) I thought I would talk about one more Koodum issue. Sad but true but the KKK is protesting the Iraq War on that hallowed ground. Sweetness and Light has the Story. Also scroll down his page and see who was hanging out with Cindy Sheehan last summer down in Crawford. So this not a real surprise. Expect to see more of this by the way and not just the Klan When I was doing my research on the Council of Conservative Citizens and the kooky League of the South, One could...

    The city that served as the first Capitol of the Confederacy is scheduled to become the birthplace for an organization of Southerners who feel disenfranchised by today's political system. The Southern National Congress has scheduled its first meeting March 4-5 in Montgomery and hopes to bring together as many as 1,000 people to create "a permanent forum for the expression of distinct Southern interests, Southern grievances, and Southern solutions." The League of the South, a Southern independence group that is viewed as marginal and extremist by critics, is organizing the event, but "this is much broader than the League of...
  • Ten Commandments appear in more Georgia courthouses

    Atlanta-AP) -- A year after a granite Ten Commandments marker was hauled out of Alabama's high court, fights over the religious document in courthouses are still going strong in Georgia. Two Georgia counties have installed Ten Commandments displays in their courthouses in the past week, ignoring lawsuits in other counties. Says Henry County commissioner Gerry Adams, "I don't see anything wrong with saying you ought not be killin' or stealin'." On Tuesday, Henry County commissioners voted 5-to-0 to put a framed Ten Commandments poster in the entrance of a new courthouse. A similar display was installed in a courthouse last...

"Let them sue. I'm not afraid of a lawsuit," Commissioner Gerry Adams said Tuesday as the commission agreed to the display requested by Ray McBerry, who said he represented League of the South. McBerry suggested that his donated copy of the Ten Commandments, along with the Declaration of Independence and the Bill of Rights, be placed in the...

    The Scotsman ^ | Tue 24 Sep 2002 | Paul Gallagher and Fiona Stewart
       Tue 24 Sep 2002 ONE of the fastest-growing white supremacist groups in the United States has hijacked the Saltire to symbolise its struggle for a political system run by Celtic "kith and kin". Scottish tourists visiting Florida and the southern states on holiday have been warned that displaying Scotland’s national flag on their clothes now runs the risk of association with the extremist followers of the League of the South. The league, founded in Alabama in 1994, has nearly 10,000 members who claim Celtic roots and campaign for the "revitalisation of a general European cultural hegemony". It has...

    CLEMSON (AP) — Members of the South Carolina League of the South have placed an image of the South Carolina Sovereignty Flag on a billboard here. R.L. Owings said he and other members posted the billboard on state Highway 93 near the school to educate Clemson City Council about John C. Calhoun and the flag's symbol of state sovereignty. City Council asked the group in March to remove the flag from a Calhoun memorial highway marker on U.S. 123. The state Transportation Department denied the group's permit to fly the flag there and had it removed the day after the...
