Florida League of the South Holds Restore Sovereignty Rally In Tallahassee, FL

The Florida League of the South held a Restore State Sovereignty rally this morning at the Old State Capitol Building in Tallahassee, FL. Around 30 League members squared off against 100 counter-protesters. State police kept both sides separated. Unlike Charlottesville, there appears to have been no violence or issues when police are allowed to do their jobs.

There have been two League of the South rallies at this location before. The first was an anti-Marco Rubio rally on March 10, 2014. The second was the Reds Out Of Florida rally on April 18, 2015. The League of the South also put up a SECEDE billboard on Apalachee Parkway in February 2014. The Florida League of the South has been active in and around Tallahassee for years now.

LS Chief of Staff Michael Tubbs describes the event:

“The rally was part of a multi-pronged campaign for Florida sovereignty which also includes visiting our state legislators in their offices this month and delivering Florida League documents regarding sovereignty for the state and the display of our state flag and preference over the federal flag.

There were a a minimum of 28 people on the side of League present today. Opposition included members of the students for a Democratic Society, New Black Panther Party, and Antifa, and other assorted communist trash. There was an incredibly heavy police presence by the Tallahassee Capitol Police of the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, Leon County Sheriff’s Office, and Florida Highway Patrol. All of the police were very friendly to us and though I would not say they were on our side they were certainly very accommodating and knew who their future enemies on the street would be. Law enforcement was very friendly to us and very helpful.

There was no violence today. Unfortunately, we were not allowed to use our flag poles to display our flags or bring anything else in that could be construed as a weapon. Lawful concealed carry license holders were allowed to carry concealed during the demonstration and there were several of our members who did.

The enemy forces occupied the front of the Capitol building before we were able to get there and claimed the choice real estate at the intersection of Monroe Street and Apalachee Parkway. Our position was not as good as we would have liked to have. We were not allowed to distribute literature to the motorist stopped at the intersection. We were told that if we attempted to we would be arrested for entering the traffic. They told us it was a safety concern.

One of the funniest incidents to occur was when one of our members took the bullhorn and started explaining to the opposition what the League of the South really believed in. All of a sudden their head started nodding in agreement and people started looking back and forth at each other like what the hell is this we didn’t know this. When one of the opposition members went to raise his bullhorn to shout us down a couple of members raise their hands to him like like, hold on, we want to hear this. Before long we were actually able to have a dialogue with the enemy and allowed each other to speak with each other back and forth. It was quite hilarious.”

Our Guys

The Opposition

The usual suspects showed up to counterprotest: virtue signaling liberals who work for the Florida state government, militant black power activists, illegal alien activists, the local soyboys, militant transsexuals and the SDS communist scum from FSU. We’ve seen this crowd before in Tallahassee. Last time I was there, I argued with them that I had transitioned into a werewolf:

There has been three events so far in January 2018 thanks to Billy Roper of Shieldwall Network (Memphis), Matthew Heimbach of Traditionalist Worker Party (Knoxville) and Michael Hill of League of the South (Tallahassee). January is normally a quiet winter month. Activism normally doesn’t heat up until spring. The Hard Right is off to an early start this year.

  1. Honestly, why hold rallies in a far left College town like Tallahassee? And Florida is too fucked up and irredeemable, full of Jews and Hispanics from every country south of the Rio Grande.

  2. There are a lot of people in the area. It is also more fun when these dupes come out to counterprotest. It makes it a bigger story. Florida is also a huge state with lots of people who are persuadable to our message.

    • You don’t see this as repeating some of the mistakes of Charlottesville?

      I’ve heard you say that CVille was a terrible choice because it’s an East Coast Berkeley full of batshit crazy leftists. Tallahassee and Gainesville seem to fit that mold as well.

    • @Hunter Wallace

      It really shows who these characters are when they turn out to protest the Constitution, Free Speech, self determination, etc..

      • As you know, Mr. Owen, The Left is not interested in those subjects you mentions, unless it pertains to themselves, and their own attempt for a total power grab.

  3. “Unlike Charlottesville, there appears to have been no violence or issues when police are allowed to do their jobs.”

    Looks like the Southern-fried kosher naïvety won’t be going away anytime soon…

  4. Off-topic but I had to write.

    I looked up Miloš Zeman to see if he won re-election as Czech president. (He did.)

    The news headlines which popped up when I did a search called him “far right,” “pro-Russia” and added “how Zeman became Putin’s man.”

    Zeman has always been a left-wing politician, but he is against the migrant invasion, thus now he’s “far right.”

    He accepted an invitation to commemorate the end of WWII in Moscow and then was ordered by US ambassador Shapiro (Chicago lawyer and Obama bundler) not to go.

    The western news media is shit.

  5. Well, look at it this way… At least our guys are finally taking seriously and will now be protected by the police. The message is getting clearer. Exposure is known and out. Headlines are out. Those that are just hearing will most likely Google “League of the South” and this creates chatter. Exposure is the key.

  6. Hunter, this is the video I had made of the SDS communists counter-demonstrating our rally back in 2015. When you debated with the leftists I remember them claiming, “If you say you are a werewolf and self-identify as one…then YOU ARE a werewolf”. …fun times!

  7. We need another Unite the Right Rally- on private property, w/ hand selected vetted attendees- a few miles outside Charlottesville Va. city limits…
