August 24, 2013
On 24 of August 2013 the League of the South staged successful demonstrations in Uvalda and Vidalia, Georgia. The Southern nationalist organisation protested the pro-amnesty mayor of Uvalda, Paul Bridges, and the displacement of the Southern people. For supporting the local people of Georgia and opposing their demographic displacement the event’s several dozen participants have been labeled ‘neo-Nazis’, ‘extremists’, ‘racists’ and ‘terrorists’ by Left-wing groups such as the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) and the Anti-Defamation League.
Mayor Bridges was conspicuously out of town (purportedly at the advice of lawyers working for the SPLC) for the event but sent out messages to Uvalda city council members that falsely claimed the League is a Klan organisation. He wrote in a message that ’Just because they aren’t dressed in white robes and pointed hats doesn’t diminish the hatefulness of their intent.’ This ‘hatefulness’ was demonstrated in the event’s participants smiling and waving to all those who passed by the demonstration. Numerous people honked their horns or shouted out their support for the Southern nationalist demonstrators. Participants held signs that read ‘Mayor Bridges wants to replace us’ and ‘It’s wrong to replace us.’ They held four large banners that read ‘For the Southern people!’ The message was entirely positive and the three men who each briefly spoke to a crowd of supporters made the moral argument that Southerners have a right to exist in their own land without being displaced by mass immigration and amnesty. The League’s president, Dr Michael Hill (a retired professor at the University of Alabama), presented an award to Uvalda Police Chief Lewis Smith who has been viciously slandered by Mayor Bridges. The soft-spoken police chief has sought to enforce the laws of Georgia while Bridges joined the SPLC in suing the State in Federal court over its immigration law. The mayor rents to several illegal immigrants and charges of child molestation have dogged him. His term in office expires soon but he is actively seeking an anti-Southern, pro-amnesty politician to follow him as Uvalda’s mayor.
