In Defense of Our Blood

Shortly after we formed The League in 1994, I was a guest on the Alan Colmes radio show on WABC in New York. Colmes, who at that time was the liberal half of the TV show “Hannity and Colmes,” asked me if we Southerners would physically defend ourselves if we were denied our rights, including the right to self-government and self-protection. He was startled when I answer unequivocally “Yes!” “You mean,” he asked, “you Southerners would take up arms against the US government if they threatened your rights?” He simply could not believe that someone in modern America could contemplate actually defending themselves and their rights by force!

You see, modern America expects us to behave like emasculated Metrosexuals (look it up!) We are conditioned to be perpetual children who need the Authorities to provide for and protect us. We are taught that we should go school, get a job, pay our taxes, consume things, and otherwise do as we are told. We say the Pledge, sing the Anthem, salute the flag, and pretend we believe the American Creed that all men are created equal. And to prove our loyalty to the regime, we offer up our sons and daughters to the military machine that is charged with enforcing the American Mandate of Democracy and Crony Capitalism on the rest of the world. We are permitted by polite society to complain but nothing more. Indeed, if there are those who insist on refusing to be “housebroken” by the regime, they are quickly branded by the usual epithets: racist, conspiracy theorist, domestic terrorist, anti-Semite, etc. And if we question any of these things, we risk being cast out from the status of “patriotic American.”

The modern American regime seeks to destroy real manhood, especially among us Southerners, because it knows—both instinctively and historically—that it is only real men who will dare stand against tyranny. And if you know your history, you know that Southerners are “defenders of the blood.” We are mostly Anglo-Celts (or we are descended from other European ethnicities that have a martial tradition), so it should not come as a surprise to those who know our history.

What do I mean by “defenders of the blood?” I mean that we Southerners know who we are, where we come from, and what our people have accomplished for themselves and their posterity. We came from the Old World—Scotland, Ireland, Wales, the English Border Country, and the western and northern European continent—to the New and carved a rough civilization out of a howling wilderness. We were the scouts, frontiersmen, and Indian fighters who provided a buffer between the gentler settlers of the coastal areas of North America and the savage hinterland. We were the riflemen who defeated the British redcoats at Kings Mountain and Cowpens. We took up arms in 1861 to form our own Southern nation against great odds and held at bay for four years the military power of the industrial North and some 750,000 foreign mercenaries. We settled the West and provide the US military with its best fighters in its 20th and 21st century wars.

After 400 years of Southern history, we find ourselves in a precarious position. Our kind, men cut from the old cloth, are told that we have no place in the modern world except to serve our alien masters. Do your duty to America and keep your mouth shut when that same America ridicules your culture and reduces you to second-class citizen status behind every minority and illegal alien. Keep you mouth shut even when you see that your children will have a bleak future as a hated minority in their own land. Keep your mouth shut and accept your fate, a preview of which may be the former Rhodesia and current South Africa.

But it is not natural for us Southerners to sit idle against threats. We are fighting men. We are not comfortable claiming victimhood and begging that some human right be created for us. Instead, we are bound up in a long community of blood, and that blood has often been shed in defense of itself. There are many old jokes about Southerners worshiping their ancestors. That’s taking it a bit too far, but there is a kernel of truth. We trace our ancestors and their deeds because that is who we are. That is our Identity. And we love and respect our people simply because they are our people, warts and all. We understand the 5th Commandment. We think such quaint things are worth fighting and dying for.

You cannot summon the courage to fight for something unless you love it and identify closely with it. We love and identify with our people—our kith and kin–and all they have bequeathed to us from the Old World to the New. We have a place that we claim as our own—the South, Dixie. Every people must have a homeland, and this is ours. Throughout history, men have challenged each other for territory. Just because we live in what is called the “modern” world does not mean that the forces of history have been rendered inoperable. If you think so, you have not noticed that a Reconquista is taking place before our very eyes. Millions of Hispanics, Mestizos really, are reclaiming land for themselves and their progeny. How is this different, say, from any other aggressive migration in history? That’s right—it isn’t, except perhaps for the fact that it is being encouraged by the government that claims control over the invaded lands. Washington, DC, is bringing in a new, more compliant population from the Third World to overwhelm and replace us.

When you take stock of the current position of our people and what the future likely has in store for us if things continue as they are, we will be outnumbered, dispossessed, and have no land on which to live, work, worship, and raise our families. That is unacceptable. But it will become the reality unless we stand and do something to stop it.

For nearly twenty years The League of the South has advocated for the survival, well being, and independence of the Southern people. We want our separation from the US empire to be peaceful, if possible. But when the Southern people are rallied to our cause in sufficient numbers to effect a separation, then we will do whatever it takes to secure our independence and establish our own nation based on our own self interests.

As it now stands, our time is short and the consequences of failure are dire. In June 1868, the Rev. Robert Lewis Dabney addressed the young men of Davidson College. In this speech, “The Duty of the Hour,” he cautioned: “A brave people may, for a time, be overpowered by brute force, and be neither dishonored nor destroyed. Its life is not in the outward organization of its institutions. It may be stripped of these and clothe itself in some diverse garb, in which it may resume its growth. But if the spirit of independence and honor be lost among the people, this is the death of the common weal: a death on which there waits no resurrection. Dread, then, this degradation of spirit as worse than defeat, than subjugation, than poverty, than hardship, than prison, than death.”

Are we 21st century Southerners deserving of being called “a brave people?” If indeed we are that brave people of whom Dabney spoke, 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.

  1. That all sounds nice, but what are the men of the south doing to defend the south?
    Last I checked the south is being overrun by northern transplants and Mexicans.
    Anyone can move or buy land in the south, no one cares about your southern code.
    Native White southerners are practically a minority now.

    • Re: Sean

      1.) Joining the League of the South. The solution is to get organized and start pushing for secession. That’s something we can do right now.

      2.) We know all about the Yankee liberal transplants, the negroes hooked on the welfare state, the illegal aliens pouring across the border, etc. The existence of the Union is why it is happening. Dissolving the Union is the solution to all of these problems.

      3.) We care about it.

      4.) Not yet.

  2. We need to get some money together and identify what house district or senate seat in the south would be most likely to elect an unabashedly pro white pro secession candidate. Get small donations from across the south to this challenger. Taking out a RINO in an extremely RED district would be a good first step.

  3. I believe I first saw the following quote on this site. I believe it was posted by Hunter:

    “The true soldier fights not because he hates what is in front of him, but because he loves what is behind him.” ~ English writer G.K. Chesterton

    I am afraid the current regime will do anything and use everything to stop any resistence to their tyranny. Sick people do sick things and DC is the sickest place on earth. I also think Southerners need to stop drinking fluoride, getting vaccines, use homepathic remedies instead of the allopathic poison the establishment peddles, avoid GMO’s (infertility, linked to leukemia, etc.), and try to eat organic. Having a clean body and clean mind will help. Also, detoxify the crap out of your system. Grow your own food. Get out of debt. Prepare. You won’t be able to do anything if you’re sick and demented.

  4. May all founder-stock Americans hear the call of the blood and act, for it is thicker than water and stronger than any tyrant. Our ancestors and posterity demand no less.

    Sic Semper Tyrannus

  5. I’ve been meeting more southern-born white people around here lately, moved here from Alabama, Georgia, Louisiana, South Carolina…. Is there a southern white flight going on? I keep asking them: “Where are your secession bumper stickers?”

  6. They will like a local festival where a large stars and bars has hung over the main stage every year so far, with no stars and stripes in sight and somehow no objections from any “PC police” SO FAR.

    Stars and bars represents rebellion or resistance against the stars and stripes Tyranny.

  7. “Second class citizenship” now there is a good talking point and from people generally more inclined to write essays because they are too good for politics.

  8. @ Hunter The big hurdle is raising the hundreds of Millions of Dollars necessary for the effort. As I’ve mentioned before, I think you can do it. But, it will be hard work. I’m sure Dr. Hill has the legal vehicles to accomplish a massive fund raising effort. You and your friends need to start dialing, mailing & visiting for dollars. This is work for young men like you and your friends. I’m sure Dr. Hill would be glad to share a generous percentage of dollars raised with you. Why give it to a call center or professional fund raiser?

  9. Article: “Hannity and Colmes,” asked me if we Southerners would physically defend ourselves if we were denied our rights…”

    Where’s the evidence of that, Mr. Hill? It’s easier than falling off a log to CLAIM Southerners would do that, but I’ve not yet seen one lick of evidence to back that assertion up. Everyday, Southerners (and Northerners too) are being denied the right to live in a nation that protects, preserves, and advances the cause of whites. Now THERE’S a right you’re being denied, Mr. Hill – but I sure don’t see you taking up arms. Your Southern cities are literally overrun with feral, criminal Negroids and yet I don’t see YOU taking up arms against them, Mr. Hill. Every white Southerner has a right to live in as crime-free environment as humanly possible, so that TOO is a “right” Southerners are being denied. Get the point, Mr. Hill? Frankly, you sound like just another do-nothing blowhard that a lot of us are getting tired of.

    Article: “We say the Pledge, sing the Anthem, salute the flag, and pretend we believe the American Creed that all men are created equal.”

    Mr. Hill, the statement above is a grossly misleading representation on your part. When those words were written by Jefferson THEY DID NOT INCLUDE NEGROES. Nor any other individuals but whites. So you’re being disingenuous and it shows.

    Your article is rife with such misrepresentations and I will address those later. But suffice to say you’ve shown no evidence that you have ever physically defended yourself from even a Northern housefly straying over the Southern border.

    And yes, I was born in the South. In fact, I was born in the greatest Southern state ever, home of the bravest Confederate fighting men that ever fought on the battlefield. Stonewall Jackson once said, whenever his forces were having a difficult time breaking through Yankee lines, that he would call upon the soldiers from my state to take the lead, because he knew that they – and only they – could smash their way through. I won’t mention the state’s name, because you should know it. If you don’t, you don’t know your much about your own Southern history.

  10. When those words were written by Jefferson THEY DID NOT INCLUDE NEGROES. Nor any other individuals but whites. So you’re being disingenuous and it shows.

    “All men are created equal” is an absurd statement whether it includes Negroes or doesn’t include Negroes. The fact that four of the five members of the committee that drafted the US declaration were either abolitionists or abolitionist sympathisers (Jefferson being the only one who was not) is a pretty good clue that Negro inclusion isn’t too wildly off the mark.

  11. . . . we will do whatever it takes to secure our independence and establish our own nation based on our own self interests.

    Dr. Hill, don’t we already have an established nation in the form of the Southern people? I have always viewed our people as our nation – our tribe.

  12. “You and your friends need to start dialing, mailing & visiting for dollars. This is work for young men like you and your friends. I’m sure Dr. Hill would be glad to share a generous percentage of dollars raised with you.”

    Truth needs DOLLARS to be heard and understood? A LIFE lived in accord with truth is most powerful.

  13. Hunter – THANK you for posting this magnificent and stirring Call! I write with tears in my eyes. Tears of admiration, and gratitude that such people are Dr Hill, and yourself, still exist in this world.

    Dr. Hill – THANK you and bless you!

  14. Mr Hill,
    Thanks for your courage. It all starts with a step.

    United we stand divided we fall.

    The anti white animosity is clearly in hyperdrive. If you are white and can’t see it now you never will. As it has always been we come back to blood. Faith of our Fathers. The remnant is rousing.

    Deo Vindice.

    Stan would love this…Time to put up or shut up

  15. @ RobRoy

    So is… Agressive Migration

    @ “…How is this different, say, from any other aggressive migration in history…”

    agressive migration and assimilation is obvious the historical strategy for genocide

    At best, they are second class citizens…. why are some aggressive migrations called genocide but this one is not?

  16. Max,

    “created equal” was and still is (and probably always will be) a great FUNDRAISER, which is what it was about.

    People who feel “less than” is some regard want to feel “as good as” since their esteem can be hurt. People who feel “more than” in some regard want to feel “down with the people,” and not ‘cut off from them,” since that, too, brings other concerns and bad feelings (potential guilt, isolation, responsibility, etc, etc.)

    So that meme is useful and has been useful and will be useful.

    It’s not “true” or “false” just useful in certain contexts.
