In this SNN podcast, I join Palmetto Patriot to discuss the meaning of the recent PPP poll in the context of our “mainstreaming strategy” for Southern Nationalism.
A year ago, the same PPP poll (this was before the election) found that 25% of Republicans supported secession. Rasmussen has conducted polls that show support for secession has been rising in Texas and the South for two years now.
Obama’s reelection hasn’t set off a fleeting secessionist temper tantrum. Rather, it exposed the growth of secessionist sentiment in the South, which PPP and Rasmussen have been tracking for two years, and agitated conservatives who were already inclined to support secession to go public with their beliefs.
Note: If 25% of Republicans support secession, then the secession petitions are registering only a fraction of the real level of disunionist sentiment out there.
