Re: A statement on the situation at Washington and Lee University

The League of the South does not wish to reason nor seek brotherhood with the broad forces responsible for removing the St. Andrews cross from Lee Chapel at Washington and Lee University. Nor will we call them bigots or accuse them of not understanding the South.

Rather we Southern nationalists seek only their destruction as we would any pest that threatens our people and our land. We call them one thing and one thing only: enemy. And we care not one iota whether they understand the South or not. For the South belongs to us and we are here to claim our birthright.

We can promise them and their allies this. That their campaign to destroy our culture and its images will be taken as a campaign to destroy our blood. It is a war they have started but one we will finish, God willing. By the grace of Almighty Providence we will banish them and their godless kind from our land as a householder banishes rats from his steading.

On this they have our solemn promise made under our banner, the Black Cross.

On behalf of the board, staff, and membership of The League of the South,
I am,

Michael Hill, President


  1. Every honest effort in the past by people of good will has been made to “get along” with those who wish to consign Southern heritage and history to oblivion. It doesn’t work not because the effort was neither “honest” nor “sufficient,” but because the hand held out in the spirit of compromise has been rejected. One can no more reason or compromise with an implacable enemy than one can negate gravity by wishing that one can fly. These people have PROVEN to be the enemy of the people of the South and it is certainly time that the people of the South recognized and ACTED on that knowledge – while they still can.

    Some say that Robert Lee would have rejected this viewpoint. I disagree. I believe that before his death Lee realized what had happened and, more to the point, what was GOING to happen to his beloved Virginia and the South. But knowing that he was being gauged by the enemy as “the voice of the South,” he was careful not to let his true sentiments be known in order to protect a people who HAD no protection under the new “central authority.”

    As for “co-existing,” that is a fantasy. I am reminded of Ronald Reagan’s comment about those who feed others to the crocodile in hopes that they will be eaten last. As Reagan pointed out, in the end, they certainly WOULD be eaten! You cannot “co-exist” with those who will stop at nothing to destroy you.

    1. Val: The world needs to understand that we Southerners did not start this war that’s now being waged against our people and their inheritance. But since it has been forced upon us by the leftist forces of Cultural Marxism, we will not back down from it. In fact, we must win it, for losing is not an option. Those who would destroy the traditional South must know this: if you seek our demise, we will use everything at our command to oppose you. In other words, if the enemy wants peace, let him cease his war against us. Otherwise, we fight to defend ourselves and our way of life.

  2. Excellent statement, Mr. President. We do not wish to “coexist” with these people.
