Rebel yell: Southern nationalists again crying ‘secede’

The League of the South’s longtime president, retired university professor Michael Hill of Killen, Ala., posted a message in July that began, “Fight or die white man” and went on to say southern nationalists seek “nothing less than the complete reconquest and restoration of our patrimony — the whole, entire South.” A place where we and our progeny can enjoy Christian liberty and the fruits of our own labor, unhindered by parasitical ‘out groups,’ said Hill’s message, posted on the group’s Facebook page a day after a rally in support of a statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee in Charlottesville, Va. The group’s website says it is “waging a war to win the minds and hearts of the Southern people,” While white-controlled government is its goal, the group says in a statement of beliefs that it offers “good will and cooperation to Southern blacks in areas where we can work together as Christians to make life better for all people in the South.” According to the U.S. census, 55 percent of the nation’s black population lived in the South in 2010, and 105 Southern counties had a black population of 50 percent or higher. The group has erected billboards that say “SECEDE” in several states, and it even has its own banner — a black and white version of the familiar Confederate battle flag, minus the stars.
