Well, the fight over the Battle Flag has been lost, even the League of the South has “removed” the flag from it’s public demonstrations, “Do not bring flags or signs – we will provide these.” The flag they are providing is their new “Southern activist flag” Kanye West is now the only one to fly […]
Occidental Dissent Since the 18th century Enlightenment, the West has made an idol of liberal democracy. It has in effect become the political default position of most Westerners, including most Americans. We accept it as “right” without critical examination. In fact, I don’t think it incorrect to say that liberal democracy has become our civic […]

Dr. Michael Hill’s speech at the 2013 League of the South conference via Occidental Dissent.

Look at this map, Look at who doesn’t claim hyphenated American ancestry, the South. The reason for this is (drum roll) immigration.

I’m reading about Scottish immigration to the Antebellum South and I came across this page with this quote that I though worth sharing: ” Highlanders were suspicious of the road construction – seeing it as a government intrusion on their lives.” To put it into perspective, the period he’s referring to was one of major social change and urbanisation. Highland dress was outlawed, estates were forfeited and the government, generally, was […]

Some US migration numbers have come to my attention, they’re from ’07. 71.4% of North carolina’s population was born here, only Texas is “stickier” than we are. This is of course means that we are breeding our own liberals rather than them coming from outside. Of course, Pew also says 39.9% have moved in, so […]
