New legislation for the South and Southerners

For Immediate Release

7 February 2019

LS button image July 2014The League of the South understands the need to protect Southerners and their historic cultural heritage from those who seek to defame and destroy both them and it. Hence, we are seeking to get the following legislation introduced into our Southern State legislatures and into the US Congress. If such legislation is good for Jews and the Holocaust, then it’s good for Southerners and The War of Yankee Aggression as well. After all, it was largely Southerners who settled the North American wilderness and founded the country. We were here long before the Jew came into an already settled, pleasant place. Our blood, sweat, tears, brains, and ingenuity built America, and we think our story should be protected from lies and distortion.–Michael Hill

We want a bipartisan bill that introduces studies on the causes, conduct, and horrible aftermath (aka Reconstruction) of The War of Yankee Aggression into the curriculum of the US education system, and establishes a federal fund that would provide teachers with the resources and to teach the horrific details of this terrible period in our history and its consequences. We also want to develop textbooks and seminars on the subject. The bill comes in the wake of a recent wave of anti-Southern attacks in the US on our beloved symbols, monuments, songs, and even on our people themselves.

League of the South Chief, Michael Hill, said “this legislation is an important step in combating the rise of anti-Southernism in America.”

“The rise of anti-Southernism in our country is extremely disturbing, and I fear for the future of our Southern people, especially our children and grandchildren. Our people and the physical manifestations of their sublime culture are under attack by those who would deprive us of the inheritance given us by our noble ancestors,” Hill said. “We need to take proactive steps to combat this hatred. We must begin educating people, especially our young people, about the horrors of  The War of Yankee Aggression and how hate, evil, intolerance, and ignorance can lead to both the cultural and actually physical genocide of a people.”

“Charlottesville, Chapel Hill, New Orleans, Memphis and other recent campaigns against the symbols and monuments to our Southern heritage require profound educational reform,” said Hill. “This legislation will lead to a revolution in Southern studies in the United States, and prevent a new generation from forgetting the past, which is essential for a secure future.”“The reality in which the majority of the young people in the US are not aware of the egregious nature of Reconstruction, for instance, is distorted and must be rectified. This will allow American students to understand what anti-Southernism can ultimately lead to,” added Hill.
