It's been over two years since Pat Hines' extremely non-credible threat (know of any northern schools destroyed by Southern nationalists since then? Me, either.) After Hines posted that "threat" (non-credible according to both Facebook and the flippin FBI) I contacted Dr. Hill by FB messenger, because of Pat's connection to the League. (My message was to Dr. Hill and two others, one of which is no longer on Facebook and another who has since left the League, so I have edited out their responses).

Do you gentlemen agree with Pat Hines, who says: "The Beslan event was part of the war to rid Chechnya of the Russian hegemony. We Southrons will adopt exactly the same methods if the Untied (sic) States does not withdrawn (sic) from our lands. It is harsh, but will be done."
And, "... we'll simply destroy a Yankee school and all that are in it. The Chechens didn't kill Chechen children, those were Russian children and teachers." http://www.facebook.com/groups/272315346193652/permalink/345558262202693/
The "Beslan event" was the September 2004 siege of a school in Beslan, Russia.by Chechen Muslim terrorists in which 334 hostages were killed, 186 of them children. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beslan_school_hostage_crisis http://www.examiner.com/article/the-8th-anniversary-of-the-rape-jihad
Is this an "honorable means"?
Beslan school hostage crisis - Wikipedia, the free encyclopediaGentlemen, I'm asking again. Do you agree with Pat Hines' threat to destroy a "yankee" (i.e,. American) school and everyone in it? Why the silence? If you agree with him, you need to remove "by all honorable means" from your motto. Murdering school children -- or even threatening to -- is not honorable. If you don't agree with him, you need to establish that.
The Beslan school hostage crisis (also referred to as the Beslan school siege or Beslan massacre)of early September 2004 lasted three days and involved the capture of over 1,100 people as hostages (including 777 children),ending with the death of over 380 people. The crisis began when a group...
10/1, 10:10pmSince that time, I've made it clear I think the League has radicalized, and I don't agree with many of its new directions.
In a word, Connie, no. We will sanction nothing of this sort. Non-combatants have never been a legitimate target.
Thank you, Dr. Hill. I was very concerned about that. It is not the Southern way....
No, and it's not the Christian way, either.
Agreed. Thank you again.
You're welcome, Connie.
I still believe the South (and Southerners) would be better off as an independent nation. I believe in the concept of secession and self-rule.
Despite my differences with some of the League's new emphasis, I have maintained very occasional but civil, even cordial, communications with Dr. Hill, Michael Cushman and a few others. But I don't follow the League like I used to. I know nothing firsthand about about the "threat of violence" from the League or its "paramilitary unit" -- but from just what I have read since Simpson started frothing at the mouth about it, I would guess it is for defense, not for initiating violence.
In a time when the very government that is supposed to protect us is allowing terrorists through our porous borders ... when there is talk of federal confiscation of citizen firearms at the very time when municipal police departments don't have the funds to respond to certain crimes (but, paradoxically, have the funds to trick theselves out in combat gear)... when brutal violence against whites goes unreported in the mainstream media and is winked at by law enforcement... well, that might explain why more and more people -- not just Southerners and Southern nationalists -- are paying more attention to defense of their families, their communities, and themselves -- not at all unlike Confederate soldiers did 153 years ago.
I'll keep an eye out for reports of Southern nationalist violence, but I'm not expecting to see much. On the other hand, I think it's a given that we'll see more "knockout games" by "teens" and "youths"...

In other news...Kevin Levin writes about the VaFlaggers on his blog, "And they wonder why no one takes them seriously."
I left a comment that won't get posted:
That is not true.I wonder why floggers are so thin-skinned. They can dish it out, but they sure can't take it.
(1) I've never encountered any VaFlaggers wondering that.
(2) A lot of people take them seriously. That the civil-war left doesn't take them seriously doesn't mean that no one does. In my humble opinion, the only reason the VaFlaggers would ever pay attention to the civil-war left is because, as a subset of leftism in general, the civil-war left has been at the forefront of the demonizing and dismantling of Confederate heritage since the middle of the 20th century and, by now, has done considerable damage.
For most of the time that the left has been tearing at our heritage and evilizing our culture and history, there was no pushback, but now there is. Small, self-motivated, self-financed, it has no huge benefactors like leftist causes do. But how many causes in the past -- some of them leftist -- started small and faced mountains of obstacles? The persistent ones grew, and they are the now presiding over the demise of western culture.
I would suggest tempering your smugness. You never know if/when something may happen to give the VaFlaggers and Southern heritage a huge increase in numbers, wealth and power. That, or simple persistence paying of in the long run.
