League of the South Members Among Those Attending NOLA Counter-Protests This Weekend
After an 11th-hour injunction required Auburn University to uphold a contract allowing Richard Spencer to speak at the school’s Foy Hall on April 18, protesters and supporters descended on the small, college town, resulting in several small scuffles and altercations. When the dust settled, three had been arrested for misdemeanor violence, one of whom the neo-Confederate League of the South (LOS) is claiming as a member.
Almost a month after Dylann Roof murdered nine parishioners at Charleston’s Mother Emmanuel AME church, a convoy of pickup trucks drove by a young African American child’s birthday party hurling racial epithets and pointing firearms. On February 27, 2017, several among the group of “flaggers” were sentenced to lengthy prison terms for aggravated assault, making terroristic threats and violating a state gang act.

Edging closer to militancy, the neo-Confederate League of the South says it's forming a force to combat the 'leftist menace to our historic Christian civilization.'
Following a “Southern Alt-Right” gathering last weekend in Georgia, Brad Griffin, who runs the white nationalist website Occidental Dissent and headlined the event, updated his blog with a flashy new banner and a new brand to sell –– the Alt-South.
The public debate over the legacy of the Confederacy in the Deep South came to a boil recently when two organizations –– one an anti-racist group and the other a Confederate heritage group –– got in a permit battle to hold competing marches in Lexington, Va.
Has anyone checked on Michael Hill? All the signs of life are still there. He’s posting on the website of his neo-Confederate group, the League of the South (LOS). His writing, still remarkable for its flagrant anti-Semitism and his reliance on the tired (((echoes))) meme, is replete with calls for “Christian manliness” in the face of “Yankee tyranny." But something about Dr. Hill seems off.
