Look Who Came To Capitol Hill!
If you are unfamiliar with The League of the South, know that the SPLC classifies them as a neo-confederate group, and they advocate for the secession of the old confederacy from the rest of the nation. In otherwords, they support treason. But don't take the SPLC's word for it, just check out the nuttiness on the League's own website!
Some fun League quotations!
“Somebody needs to say a good word for slavery. Where in the world are the Negroes better off today than in America?”
— Jack Kershaw, League of the South board member, 1998
“[T]he Southern League supports a return to a political and social system based on kith and kin rather than an impersonal state wedded to the idea of the universal rights of man. At its core is a European population.”
— Michael Hill, essay on League of the South website, 2000
