This is embarrassing … like what recently happened to Roan Garcia-Quintana and now John Stortstrom, it shows that the door has closed on working within the Republican Party, Conservatism, Inc., and reforming the U.S. political system.
Update: Michael Hill has released a statement on this issue:
“As President of The League of the South, I’d like to thank Rand Paul, the GOP, Salon, and all the other cultural, social, economic, and political organs that are helping us separate the proverbial men from the boys. To wit, you are helping us destroy any “middle ground” to which the timid can retreat for safety. Soon, those like Mr. Hunter will learn that there’s no place in the GOP for Southerners who wish to remain . . . Southerners. Just so there’s no chance that you’ll confuse The League with the GOP or any other “conservative” group, here’s what we stand for: The survival, well being, and independence of the Southern people. And by “the Southern people,” we mean White Southerners who are not afraid to stand for the people of their race and region. In other words, we understand what it is to be an historic “nation”–a specific people with a unique culture living on a particular piece of land. And, God willing, we shall one day have a name and place among the nations of the earth.”
Note: This is a good thing.
A few years ago, there was still a lot of confusion on this issue. I myself wanted to believe that we could work within the Republican Party to reform the system. I was right … we can work within the system at the state and local level, in the South, up to the point where things start to really matter and the national media and the federal government slaps us down like they did with Arizona’s SB 1070, California’s Prop 8, and Alabama’s HB 56.*
If the enemy wasn’t so drunk with power, they would continue to cultivate such illusions for our time, money, and energy would continue to be squandered on the GOP, Conservatism, Inc., the Ron Paul Revolution and other such nonsense. They are really doing us a favor by showing us that there is no middle ground between our racial and cultural survival and the total destruction of the U.S. system.
Update: The American Conservative links to this ridiculous essay by Jack Hunter and crows that “he has grown.”
* As Robert Barnwell Rhett explained in his postwar memoir, the Union is a consolidated despotism, and the states (like counties) are mere administrative vassals of the central government in Washington. Every important decision even on the most sensitive issues is made by a tiny liberal elite in Washington – which is why 6 of the 10 wealthiest counties in America are in the DC area – so it is a pointless to flop around in the provinces and fool yourself into believing that you are changing the system.
In the 1960s, segregationists ruled Alabama and Mississippi with an iron fist and resisted integration up to the point of armed conflict, but because of the existence of the Union, the Jim Crow system was destroyed by federal judges, federal troops, federal money, federal executive orders, and federal laws. There’s no way out but through the Union!
