In the afterglow of the Bundy Ranch and associated Las Vegas cop killers, the League of the South has decided it is time to start organizing. According to the Southern Poverty Law Center, the LotC has begun organizing what it calls the “Indomitables,” a paramilitary group with the goal of committing treason against the United States in the name of a new, whites-only, Confederacy. This of course is highly illegal, and shows more the League’s absolute disregard for the ideals upon which this nation was founded.

League of the South president, Michael Hill, offered his support for the idea of a new paramilitary force back in 2013.

We are for the survival, well-being, and independence of the Southern people. And when we say ‘the Southern people,’ we mean white Southerners. We are an ethno-nationalist movement and we want a free and independent South for our people, as our homeland. That’s pretty much what we are fighting for.

According to the SPLC, an internal document by Dr. Hill expands upon the earlier statements, stating,

We desire that our women and children be warm and snug while the world outside rages. And as our due for that we must face the world.

Training the new force has fallen on Floyd Eric Meadows, 43, of Rome, Ga., also known as Eric Thorvaldsson. Mr. Meadows, a military veteran of 12 years experience, has boasted on social of earning his ‘red bootlaces’ – a phrase used in skinhead culture for the drawing of blood for the cause.

When asked for comment by the SPLC, the LotC relayed this message written by Michael Hill.

Even if we are –– and you really have no idea on earth if we are or not ––setting up a Southern militia or some other form of paramilitary organization, we are doing nothing that free men have not done for centuries. Deal with it and stop your whining.

This fits in with an even more provocative blog post, effectively calling anyone who was not advocating for armed rebellion against the US Government “emasculated Metrosexuals and that “our duty of the hour is to revive that fighting spirit of independence and honor that moved our noble ancestors and to renew the age-old struggle of our people—our blood defending our native soil of Dixie.
Despite some claims that the League of the South is unaware of such a paramilitary effort, Michael Hill gave encouragement through Facebook.

Dr. Hill’s statements of denial fall flat when checked against other statements he has made, such as,

The primary targets will not be enemy soldiers; instead, they will be political leaders, members of the hostile media, cultural icons, bureaucrats, and other of the managerial elite without whom the engines of tyranny don’t run.

Hill’s advocation for the execution of any person who does not follow his particular philosophy is closer to the brutal fundamentalism of ISIS than any policy ever proposed by the United States. By the League turning to military methods, after their billboard campaign failed to rile up the base they claim, is only to be expected. They do not even know what the national anthem is, claiming instead it is ‘Dixie,’ written by famed Yankee Dan Emmett in 1959. But then again, has accepting reality ever been a strength for the League of the South?

Militias with ties to the League of the South have already begun acting out against the US government, with a planned blockage of the bridges in the Rio Grande Valley which bring in trade across the Mexican border. This unprecedented act, an attempt to violate the US Constitution by restricting trade through force of arms, is further signs of escalation by right-wing forces, which has already attempted to usurp the government within Nevada earlier this year. Thanks to anti-government anti-patriotic traitors such as the League of the South, these events are likely to continue to escalate with alarming regularity.

And this is just what they want.
