White Supremacists To Rally In Tallahassee, Florida January 27th.

Via The Southern Poverty Law Center:

This Saturday, January 27, the League of the South (LOS), a neo-confederate organization that seeks to establish a white, Christian ethnostate in the southeastern U.S., will hold its first rally of the new year on the steps of Florida’s capitol building in Tallahassee.

In a post on the League’s website titled “Off and Running,” LOS president Michael Hill announced the event, the first since the League’s planned dual rallies in Shelbyville and Murfreesboro, Tennessee, collapsed under the weight of intense public protest. The post is styled as a militaristic “Directive 05012018,” a flourish that is emblematic of Hill’s embrace of warlike posturing and rhetoric.

Hill’s post did not indicate a theme for Saturday’s rally. Past events at the Tallahassee capitol have attempted to leverage media scrutiny around issues of immigration, federal elections, and Confederate memorials, all with the end-goal of garnering support for the League’s pursuit of a balkanized south.”

What a coincidence! January 27 is also punch a Neo-Nazi day. Of course everyday is punch a Neo-Nazi day.
