International media coverage of Montgomery ‘secede’ billboard
Southern independence has been the talk of the land today with media outlets from South Carolina to southern California and even up in Canada reporting on the ‘secede’ billboard in Montgomery, Alabama.
Leaders from the League of the South were interviewed today on the phone and in person at the League headquarters in Wetumpka, Alabama by CBS affiliate WAKA and other media outlets about the controversy over the ‘secede’ billboard recently taken down by Lamar Advertising. Dr Michael Hill, president of the League, wrote a short time ago on the League’s Facebook page:
In the last hour, I have done phone interviews with Mike Cason of AL.com and Jay Reeves, the AP correspondent for the State of Alabama. Jay has always been very fair to us. He took down a lot of information and said he would call Lamar with some tough questions. An AP article on this will likely be re-printed from coast to coast.
Cason wrote a lengthy and largely unbiased article on the billboard for AL.com when it was first unveiled. Today, a follow up piece by Cason on the billboard’s removal was also published by AL.com. In that short article Cason describes the League as ‘a 20-year-old organization that advocates secession by southern states.’
Dr Hill also recently posted:
I am scheduled to do an interview on Tuesday, 20 May, at 10:35 AM (CDT) on WAPI radio in Birmingham on the ‘Secede’ billboard removal issue.
The following is an incomplete list of links to media outlets which have covered the story on the removal of the ‘secede’ billboard, most of them republishing the Associated Press article: WIAT CBS (Birmingham, AL), The State (Columbia, SC), Miami-Herald, Bradenton Herald, WFSA (Montgomery, AL), Tuscaloosa News, Island Packet (Hilton Head, SC), The Washington Post, NewsOK (Oklahoma), The Post and Courier (Charleston, SC), Free Times Press (Chattanooga, TN), Star Tribune (Minneapolis, MN), Fox 29 (San Antonio, TX), Metro News (Canada), Newnan Times-Herald (Georgia), US News & World Report, ABC News, Drudge Report, The Dispatch (Lexington, NC), KSBY NBC (San Luis Obispo, CA), El Paso Inc (TX), The Covington News (GA), Tampa Bay Online (FL), My Fox Memphis (TN), Cape Coral Daily Breeze (FL), Omaha.com (Nebraska), Arizona Daily Star, CT Post, Nashoba Publishing, Denver Post (CO), Vancouver Sun (Canada), Manchester Journal (VT), Knoxville News Sentinel (TN), Columbus Enquirer, WAKA CBS (Montgomery, AL), The Raw Story.
It should be noted that the Associated Press article uses the term ‘Confederate’ to describe the League of the South. Dr Hill responded to this by posting on his personal Facebook page:
The League of the South is not a “Confederate” organization. We are a Southern Nationalist organization.
The Southern Poverty Law Center, a far-Left, anti-White organisation based in Montgomery (which has for years labeled conservative and Christian organisations ‘hate groups’) calls the controversy over the billboard a ‘fiasco’ for the League. However, the billboard worked extremely well even though it was up for only a single day. Many thousands of people will hear about the League of the South and the message of Southern independence thanks to this ‘fiasco.’ As Hunter Wallace wrote on Occidental Dissent, ‘In hindsight, the League should have agitated to have its own billboard removed … this is turning into the equivalent of a very expensive ad buy. Free of charge, too.’ Wallace added, ‘ I’m sure the League would now like to heartily thank whatever moron out there got it taken down.’
