SNN has a new podcast with Dr. Michael Hill of the League of the South about the impossibility of reforming the system and the necessity of Southern independence.
I’ve spent years thinking through these same issues and have arrived at pretty much the same conclusion. We can either secede from the United States or sink into the Third World.
Like Michael Hill, I am a “mainstreamer” in the sense that I support participating in state and local politics, or even federal politics insofar as there is something tangible (such as the border fence) that can be gained from it. At the same time, I believe the system is beyond reform at the federal level, and that some kind of “vanguard” will have to lead Dixie to secession.
Consider the following:
(1) The Justice Department sued Alabama and South Carolina to block our new immigration laws. The ACLU/SPLC lawsuit blocked Georgia’s new immigration law.
(2) The Justice Department blocked South Carolina’s new Voter ID law. Yesterday, the Justice Department blocked the Texas Voter ID law. It will almost certainly attempt to block the Mississippi Voter ID law.
(3) Last month, the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals overturned California’s ban on gay marriage.
It doesn’t matter what the voters have to say anymore.
Every single time we pass any law at the state and local level that is even remotely positive from the standpoint of racial and cultural preservation it inevitably gets tied up in the federal courts. Then everything the voters have decided hinges on whether or not the Supreme Court is willing to take the case and which way it rules on the issue.
American democracy is a farce. The only thing standing between us and complete tyranny right now is the health of one Supreme Court justice. It is only a matter of time before this last line of defense collapses under the pressure of changing racial demographics. We also saw with Pat Buchanan, Glenn Beck, and Rush Limbaugh that the boundaries of permissible dissent are shrinking faster than ever before.
The real question is not whether Southern independence is desirable. It is whether White Southerners can be persuaded to reject the system and secede from the United States. It is whether the League of the South can succeed in connecting with its target audience. It is whether Southern identity is strong enough to become the focal point of resistance.
Regardless of our doubts, we are going to encourage White Southerners to take that exit ramp. The least we can do is expand the cultural space where these ideas can be discussed on a daily basis. We can also raise our voice against the people who are attempting to neuter and sabotage that project out of their unreciprocated love of minorities.
