The Lovable League of the South

In case you were wondering what sorts of boobs would drive eight hours to New Orleans to “defend” the Robert E. Lee and Jeff Davis statues, one of the groups prominently featured in news coverage of today’s opposing demonstrations was a quaint little heritage society called the League of the South. What the TV coverage didn’t explain about the League, you can click here to read on the SPLC’s profile of the group — their cheeky call for Southern secession from the United States, their charming demand for “Anglo-Celtic cultural dominance,” their adorable annual celebration of John Wilkes Booth, who “knew a man who needed killing when he saw him,” or their helpful, civic-minded warning to “never underestimate the perfidy of the organized Jew.”
