As I sat in church one morning, going over in my mind an idea I had on an article to write, my preacher read a verse and asked us to ponder its meaning. As I listened to his sermon on the dangers of the modern world and the millions who wish to lead us astray with temptations of the flesh, I thought about our Southern Nationalism and those who would lead us astray from our own path.
There are those now in our small and humble, yet powerful group, who would like to lead us astray from our own path. There are those who like to sow division and mock us for humbling ourselves before the Lord, and making our cause a cause for Him and His glory. A key tenet of Southern Nationalism is that we turn from the wickedness of the modern world, not embrace it. We put our faith in the Lord in that He will lead us down the path to victory to create a Southern Christian Nation worthy of His glory.
Modern readers likely shiver at the language I’m using, but there’s a reason for that – they’re completely reconstructed to fit nicely in modernity’s mold. My description above might as well be in Martian or the etchings on an old Roman tablet for modern American readers. Conversely, our ancestors, from even half a century ago, would know exactly man’s relationship to God without wincing at the old language.
Some mock our faith. Some mock us for a belief in a free and independent Southern nation for our people. They may be jealous that we have a shared cultural identity. They may even doubt that we are a separate group of people, only another sub-group in a larger, bland, “White” racial category. This line of thinking is fairly typical for both sleepy normies, leftists and other elements of the Far Right. All three groups are wrong, of course.
Why? Because Southerners share much more in common with each other than modern Weimericans could ever imagine. A native Marylander from the Eastern Shore has more in common with a local from South Georgia than any transplant settled suburban neighborhood around Washington, DC or Atlanta. They speak variations of Southern English, they worship the Lord, they’re predominately rural, conservative (the Eastern Shore has threatened secession from Maryland several times) and proud of their region. Despite being roughly 600 miles away, the two have much more in common than the suburbs of Fairfax, Virginia or Decatur, Georgia.
Most of us in the South know where our family is from. I know where almost all of my ancestors are buried and am less than a couple hours away from their final resting place. My culture and identity were forged by the land my ancestors conquered, tamed and, ultimately, settled. There are roads, buildings and farms my family built and cultivated. We are a separate people. The Southland is our soil and we are of it. The two cannot be split, the land and her people.
“For what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? What communion hath light with darkness?”
What point if there to being yoked together with other groups who would sell themselves and their movement for a few more dollars? Southern Nationalism and Identity Dixie do not ask you for your money. Our movement transcends money, our ideals are not for sale. You may enjoy them and learn from them for free. We do not beg you for handouts to be a member. We understand your money could be put to better use for us and our people by using it to raise a healthy family. We only ask you to have faith in Southern Nationalism and work towards that goal.
Alliances may be necessary to move forward. If there are other groups who wish to ask for money and become a business, instead of a true, authentic movement, than that is their prerogative and I wish them well. As I would not enter your home and slander it, we only ask our guests not enter and slander ours.
May God bless you, the South and our Southern Nation.
Oh, I'm a good old Rebel, now that's just what I am; For this "Fair Land of Freedom" I do not give a damn! I'm glad I fit against it, I only wish we'd won, And I don't want no pardon for anything I done.
