Racists to Rally in South Carolina Against Immigration Reform

On Decem­ber 7, 2013, the League of the South (LOS), a racist neo-Confederate orga­ni­za­tion, will hold a rally in Greenville, South Car­olina, tar­get­ing Sen. Lind­sey Gra­ham (R-SC) for his sup­port of immi­gra­tion reform. Gra­ham along with seven other Sen­a­tors formed the “Gang of Eight” and drafted S.744, the Bor­der Secu­rity, Eco­nomic Oppor­tu­nity, and Immi­gra­tion Mod­ern­iza­tion Act which even­tu­ally passed the Sen­ate in June 2013.league-of-the-south-logo

Brad Grif­fin aka “Hunter Wal­lace,” the founder of the white suprema­cist web­site Occi­den­tal Dis­sent, is one of the key pro­mot­ers of the Greenville event. Numer­ous blogs pro­mot­ing the LOS rally and attack­ing Lind­sey Gra­ham appear on the Occi­den­tal Dis­sent web­site. Some of the attacks on Gra­ham on Occi­den­tal Dis­sent are anti-Semitic. In one blog, Grif­fin wrote, “If Lind­sey Gra­ham isn’t ‘con­trolled by the Jews,’ he sure gives off that impres­sion.”  Another claimed Gra­ham vis­ited Florida recently to “shake­down the elderly Jew­ish Zion­ists in Palm Beach County in the hope of get­ting a hand­some kick­back for his tire­less war­mon­ger­ing against Iran and Syria.”

The LOS rally in Greenville is the third immi­gra­tion rally the orga­ni­za­tion staged since the sum­mer. While the ral­lies in Geor­gia and Ten­nessee tar­geted a local politi­cian and the state’s immi­gra­tion poli­cies respec­tively, the South Car­olina rally is the first time in this cam­paign that the LOS is tar­get­ing a fed­eral politi­cian. On the Face­book event page for the Greenville rally, LOS claims Gra­ham “is one of the most out­spo­ken ene­mies of the South­ern peo­ple who has long sup­ported Third World immi­gra­tion and amnesty for ille­gal immigrants.”

Graham’s stance on immi­gra­tion also prompted a num­ber of anti-immigrant orga­ni­za­tions to tar­get him ear­lier in the year. Num­ber­sUSA, the anti-immigrant movement’s grass­roots orga­nizer, launched a $150,000 TV and radio ad cam­paign against Gra­ham in his home state in Feb­ru­ary. In April the anti-immigrant group Dustin Inman Soci­ety (DIS) funded a bill­board seen on an Atlanta high­way attack­ing Gra­ham for his sup­port of immi­gra­tion reform.

    Sorry, y’all lost me with ‘racist’.
    It’s about time who­ever writes these arti­cles get an expan­sion in their vocab­u­lary– or at the very least come up with some bet­ter name call­ing than ‘racist’ and ‘white supremacist’.

  • Hypocrisy

    A racist, jew­ish suprema­cist orga­ni­za­tion wail­ing about sup­posed racism and supremacy. You’re not even try­ing to make sense any­more, are you?

  • Rudel

    Gra­ham vis­ited Florida recently to “shake­down the elderly Jew­ish Zion­ists in Palm Beach County in the hope of get­ting a hand­some kick­back for his tire­less war­mon­ger­ing against Iran and Syria.”

    But wait… that is exactly what he did do.

  • Freez­ing in Montana

    How is it the far left Jews of this coun­try ALWAYS have to yell racist every time some­body has the guts to speak their con­science? The rally was against the Fed­eral Gov­ern­ment drop­ping hun­dreds, if not thou­sands of mus­lims, Soma­lis, and other une­d­u­cated third world par­a­sites in the South, upset­ting the demo­graph­ics and a two hun­dred plus years way of life. I don’t want a bunch of for­eignors in my back­yard either.I try to respect your views, and I DEMAND that your respect my right to have views also…even if they hap­pen to dis­agree with yours. THAT does not make me racist. That indi­cates that I am an Amer­i­can, who does not want to see his coun­try filled with thou­sands more par­a­sites when we already have more than we can sup­port now. NO other coun­try in the world, ISRAEL included allows that to happen.
