The SPLC has a new article up on the League of the South leaving the Nationalist Front:
“Brad Griffin, an Alabama resident and the League’s PR Chief, has publicly feuded with Hill in the past. Griffin has recently decried the League’s participation in “the Summer of Hate”— as the intense period of public white nationalist rallies during the summer of 2017 has come to be known within the movement — its ties to the TWP, NSM and other Nationalist Front ilk, and its overall departure from messaging that Griffin developed with former South Carolina chairman Michael Cushman to differentiate “Southern Nationalism” from garden-variety “heritage activism.” In “Review: 2018 League of the South Conference,” Griffin takes Hill to task, saying …”
I’m hardly feuding with Dr. Hill.
I think it is great news that the League of the South is going to return to focusing on its own message. If anything is true, this will quell what divisions existed within the League as our involvement with the Nationalist Front had been a long standing point of controversy.
It’s true that I supported the “Hard Right” rebranding after Shelbyville. The collapse of the Traditionalist Worker Party in a sex scandal and the slew of documentaries in the previous article changed my mind though. I just don’t see a path forward for that sort of thing anymore. I don’t want to attend anymore volatile public events either with strangers who I don’t know or trust.
Identity Evropa was right to focus on their own movement. I feel we should do the same.
“In a recent post titled “League of the South Holds North Florida Meetup,” Griffin describes a trip last month to meet with members of the Florida League at a private event in Panama City Beach in glowing terms and compares the direction in which Hill has taken the League to “private meetups without the presence of Antifa and the violence, doxxing and lawfare that follows in their wake.”
In my experience, most people join groups for the fellowship. We don’t have to be marching in the streets, wrestling with Antifa and getting doxxed to grow our movement. When mobs of violent Antifa are beating up people with American flags and tearing down Confederate monuments, those people are already making our case for us and sending waves of new recruits in our direction.
It is more fun to relax on the beach with likeminded people in Florida than to get bombarded by piss balloons in Charlottesville. I think Antifa should be given the public spotlight to discredit the Left. I’m happy to let these feral criminals continue to attack police officers, “journalists,” bystanders and Bernie Bros. I don’t think we have anything to gain by clouding that picture.
Antifa are producing some really great optics right now. We should leave them alone to self destruct engaging in violence with conservatives and Patriot groups.
“Griffin’s ire with the alt-right as a brand likely stems from being added to a civil suit for his involvement in the planning and coordination of the Unite the Right rally.”
No, I have said in public and private on multiple occasions that I don’t want to be associated with the violent incel rhetoric. Everyone in the Alt-Right knows that is my position. I believe in faith, family, folk and some of those people don’t and that is the divide.
