LARP: The League of the South plays Sheriff...

Lets hope they're just trolling... Via the Southern Poverty Law Center:
"Realizing that his organization has lost appeal among the youth, Hill has announced the formation of a Southern Defense Force (SDF). With the SDF, Hill is recycling the threat of paramilitary action by the League, previously used under the guise of the “Indomitables”.
Hill’s stated intent for the “Southern Defense Force” (SDF) is to combat “the leftist army … Antifa (Anti-Fascists), Black Lives Matter (BLM), and other assorted radical organizations.”
Hill nests his justification for the SDF in the larger narrative of a mass conspiracy of left-wing violence, largely in response to growing tensions and protests surrounding the inauguration of President Trump and his wave of anti-Muslim executive orders.
Hill correctly identifies the major flashpoints as occurring in “major urban areas and college/university campuses.”
What comes next is a bit of a stretch.
“It’s only a matter of time until they move … into smaller cities and towns, the suburbs, and ever [sic] some rural areas.”
Hill’s posturing belies the fact that the 2016 election revealed a substantial gulf between liberal metropolitan areas and the vast swathes of less populated land between that went to Trump. Given this demographic distribution, it seems highly unlikely that there is a significant body of Soros-funded, left-wing extremists in Wetumpka, Alabama capable of mustering a violent street gang.
The League has announced its July 2017 “Nationals Conference” to be held once again at its remote “cultural center and headquarters”. While the aging membership reclines on folding chairs inside an air-conditioned room, black-clad members of the SDF (formerly “Indomitables”) will patrol the grounds, ever alert for Antifas among the pine trees."
Restoring the honor!
