According to Wikipedia,


The League of the South describes itself as a Southern nationalist organization, headquartered in Killen, Alabama, which states that its ultimate goal is “a free and independent Southern republic.” The group defines the Southern United States as the states that made up the former Confederacy. It claims to be also a religious and social movement, advocating a return to a more traditionally conservative, Christian-oriented Southern culture. It advocates a “natural societal order of superiors and subordinates…”


That sounds at least a little kooky, right? Ah, but the League of the South is more than just a little kooky.


Consider, for example, THIS PASSAGE from the group’s website:


The League of the South looks to the present and future. However, from time to time we do look back at our past.


This 14th of April will mark the 150th anniversary of John Wilkes Booth’s execution of the tyrant Abraham Lincoln. The League will, in some form or fashion, celebrate this event. We remember Booth’s diary entry: “Our country owed all her troubles to him, and God simply made me the instrument of his punishment.” A century and a half after the fact, The League of the South thanks Mr. Booth for his service to the South and to humanity.


And just the other day, Michael Hill, co-founder of the League of the South, wrote THIS:


As a traditional Christian Southerner, I want no part of “America.” I’m not talking about a particular piece of land in the western hemisphere; rather, I am talking about an idea, a proposition, a regime, a way of life. I am a Southerner, an old-fashioned Christian. The status of “American” is my antithesis.


Now before you tell me to “Love it or leave it” and pack up and move somewhere else, let me explain. The South, Alabama in particular, is my home. It is also a captive colony of this American monstrosity. Yes, many of our citizens have, wittingly or unwittingly, embraced Americanism for either survival or profit. I have not, and I intend to convince my fellow Southerners to join my side. I do not intend to leave Alabama or the South. Nor do I intend to leave them in the clutches of America. I intend to fight, and if necessary kill and die, for their survival, well-being, and independence.


Incidentally, another co-founder of the League of the South is Thomas Fleming, president of the Rockford Institute, a paleoconservative think tank headquartered here in Rockford, Illinois. But Fleming had some kind of falling-out with the League a few years back and apparently is no longer associated with the group.
