How do we know? Other outraged floggerettes at XRoads notified both, and received replies that the threats weren't credible.
Facebook and the FBI must know their stuff, as there have been no attacks against children at school by Southern heritage folks (though there have been by others, but don't expect Simpson to acknowledge that).
So he's running a pic of Hines with Dr. Michael Hill of the League of the South. Now, I'm already on record being against the way the League has, IMO, radicalized. But I'm not ready to throw the organization and its members to the wolves.
Here's the lie:
Following the picture, Simp sez, "No word from Dr. Hill as to whether the League of the South endorses Mr. Hines’s proposal..."
Simpson knows it's a lie because he monitors my blog, so he certainly knows about this PM between me and Dr. Hill in the days after the threat was posted. So, yes, there is "word" from Dr. Hill that the League most certainly does not endorse Hines' "proposal" (which is was not; it was an example of spouting off).

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 We Southrons will adopt exactly the same methods if the Untied (sic) States does not withdrawn (sic) from our lands.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."
Gentlemen, 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.My original blog post about this: http://mybacksass.blogspot.com/2014/09/violence-violence-vi-hi-hi-o-ho-ho-le.html
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.
Run, Spot, Run! Lie, Simpson, Lie!
