On Saturday October 24, 2015, the Kentucky League of the South hosted a rally in support of Kentucky coal miners in Hazard Kentucky at the intersection of Johnny Cox All American Drive and Black Gold Boulevard. While the turnout was lower than expected, due to vehicle issues and personal issues from some members, we had seven folks attend- 5 from Kentucky and 2 from Alabama.
Despite our small numbers, the demonstration was an absolute sucess. Similar to our demonstration last year in Harlan, we recieved and overwhelmingly positive response with no negative reactions. This was one of the most well recieved demonstrations this writer has ever been to! We handed out several Free Magnolias to interested people, and spoke with a local politican who came out to express his gratitude for the League's stance on the War on Coal and coal miners. Afterwards, several members enjoyed dinner at a local BBQ restaraunt.
The Kentucky League is looking at continuing their demonstrations on the coal issue, and are planning several more coal demonstrations for 2016... until then, keep an eye out for more announcements. Thanks to everyone who's supported the Kentucky League of the South this year!

Today, members from the Kentucky League of the South held a demonstration in Alexandria Kentucky in Campbell county, at the intersection of Alexandria Pike and Main Street. In addition to the Kentuckians that attended, we also had several folks from Ohio, as well as one man who drove up from central Alabama to stand with us. This was by far our largest demonstration yet, totaling out at 14 people attending.
We had an overwehlming positive response to our demonstration. Demonstrators held up signs saying "Secede to survive" and "Feds Out of Kentucky". We had very few negative responses. Most the people that stopped by to talk completely supported our message and agreed Kentucky should have the right to govern its own affairs, completely independent from the US federal government.
At noon, we drove down the rode a bit and had dinner at a local restaurant. The servers inquired about the League and our message, and were very supportive when we told them who we were and what we stood for. They invited to come back and hold local meetings there in the future, something we will most certainly take them up on!
Kentuckians are fed up with federal overreach and are looking for a solution. Washington DC does not care about supporting Kentucky's workers or protecting our culture, faith, and values. The GOP has continually let us down, and people here are looking for another solution.

Below is a write up from our most recent demonstration in Pikeville and Prestonsburg Kentucky.
On Saturday morning around 9:20 we arrived in Pikeville Kentucky, a coal town of about 6900 people. There were seven of us there- 5 from Kentucky, one gentleman from Tennessee, and one gentleman from Virginia. Unfortunately, this being the League’s first demonstration in the Appalachian Mountains, we didn’t take into account that the weather could be cold and rainy- which it was. After a brief stop at a department store to grab some ponchos and umbrellas, we hit the streets with our signs that read ‘Support Kentucky Coal Miners’ and ‘Feds Out of Kentucky’ Due to the rain, there was not as much traffic as we had anticipated- none the less, the people that were out there and saw our message seemed to like us very much. We received numerous honks, waves, and thumbs up from the people of Pikeville. Some even took some Free Magnolias with them. Before the demonstration ended, some of our activists ran across the street to a local produce shop and bough Ale8s (Kentucky soft drink) for everyone, and the store owner, seeing that we were having a pro-coal demonstration, took a stack of Free Magnolias to distribute in his store.
On our way out of town, we noticed a small group of people standing on a bridge above an overpass holding signs and flags. We later found out they were having an anti- amnesty rally. While we did not get to stop and show our support, we certainly do support the citizens of Pikeville and Pike County who do not want to be replaced by third world immigrants.
We drove about 25 minutes west to another small mountain town, Prestonsburg, whose population is about 3300 people. By the time we got there, the rain was long gone, it had warmed up outside, and more people were outside. We occupied a busy intersection in the middle of town. With the exception of one man, who drove by several times and blocked traffic by stopping in the middle of the intersection to try to argue and belittle us, we received an overwhelming positive response from the people of Prestonsburg. It seems we wouldn’t go 5 seconds without hearing or seeing a honk, thumbs up, or wave. We distributed hundreds of Free Magnolias to the public, and we even received a couple of small donations. We struck up conversations with those who were walking by on the sidewalks, including one young lady who told us she had been arrested 4 times for standing with her friends, family, and neighbors for trying to prevent coal mines in Perry County and surrounding areas from being shut down. She told us that she had been working on coming up with ideas for more jobs and energy sources for Eastern Kentucky since the attacks on coal, but had never thought about the option of secession- an option that seemed to appeal more and more to her the more we talked about it. She, like the rest of Prestonsburg and Floyd County, was very appreciative of our presence there. All in all, our first demonstration in Appalachia was an absolute success. We will be having more pro-coal demonstrations in the future, so be sure to keep listening for our next event!

Below is a write up of our 'Secede From Obamaland' Demonstration which took place in the towns of Carrollton and Warsaw KY on May 31st, 2014:
On Saturday May 31st, we arrived in Carrollton, a small town around 3500 people along the Ohio River. We hit the streets with our 'Secede to Survive' and 'Feds Out of Kentucky' signs and our Kentucky and Southern Nationalist flags. Three of us from the Kentucky League of the South were there, and we were joined by a couple from Indiana and a gentleman from Illinois, and around 10:30, another man from Florence, Kentucky showed up and joined us as well. We had no negative responses from the people of Carrollton. Many people honked their horns or gave us a thumbs up when they drove by. Several people stopped to talk with us and took some Free Magnolias with them.
At noon, we went to a local restaurant in Carrollton, and then drove down the road to Warsaw Kentucky, a town of about 1500, also located on the Ohio River. We received many positive responses here as well, except one man dressed as a gangster hurled profanity at us as he drove by. Fortunately, he was the odd one out, as most of the people in Warsaw who saw our message were supportive.
It is also worth mentioning during our demonstration in Warsaw, some residents were moving furniture out of a nearby building and one of our activists sprung into action and helped them move the furniture into a truck. Our activist pointed out no matter what those people may have heard about the League from a leftist source like the SPLC, they now have a positive view of us. He compared it to something Golden Dawn, the leading Greek Nationalist Party, would do.
Overall, despite our small numbers, we had a very successful demonstration. A very good first event for the Kentucky League of the South. We will be holding another demonstration sometime in late July in the eastern part of the state. Information on the next demonstration will be released shortly!

Michael Bloomberg, former mayor of New York City, is now leading a group called 'Mayors Against Illegal Guns'. A more appropriate name for this group would be 'Mayors Against All Guns'. Several mayors have left the group recently, saying that Bloomberg is waging a war against legal gun owners, not illegal ones.
However, the group still has a good number of mayors who are sticking around- seven of them being mayors of Kentucky cities. They are-
Greg Fischer- Louisville
Everette Varney- Georgetown
Mary Brown- Fort Thomas
William Lammlein- La Grange
Bobby F. Crager- Flatwoods
Gene McMurry- Carrollton
George Lisle Cheatham III- Greensburg
A full list of the Mayors Against Illegal Guns can be found here- http://www.thetruthaboutguns.com/2014/02/robert-farago/full-updated-list-mayors-illegal-guns-e-civilian-disarmament/

Allen Central High School, in Floyd county Kentucky, caused quite the controversey a few years back when news sites ran stories about the school because of their display of the Confederate flag in the cafeteria. If you google Allen Central High School, you get a result for their website which has a picture of a Confederate Soldier holding a battle flag next to the link to directions to the school. If you enter the school's website and watch the picture slide show at the top of the screen, you can see a picture of the football team and cheerleading squad with a CBF shaded in behind them. Even on the faculty information page, one holding of the teachers is wearing a shirt that says "rebel" with a battle flag background.
The media's response to this display of Southern pride will surprise no one. In an article for Daily Kos, "Doctor RJ" asks "when did Kentucky become part of the Confederacy?" Well, as most people who study the War Between the States know, Kentucky was fiercely divided during the war. One county might have been pro-Union but the county to the right or left of it might have been pro-Confederate. Floyd county, where Allen Central is located, was one of the most pro-Confederate counties in the state- quite possibly the most pro-Confederate county in Eastern Kentucky.
Of course, the article brings up how offensive the flag is to blacks at the school. Black students make up 33 of the 6,348 students in Floyd county. Interestingly enough, they quote a black student showing discontent for the battle flag, yet he does not attend Allen Central or live in Floyd county- he lives 30 miles away in Pike county, which is just east of Floyd county. They might as well have interviewed your uncle's best friend's high school janitor's best friend's college room mate who visited Allen Central once 10 years ago and didnt like that they displayed Confederate flags.
I certainly have a lot of respect for this school for not backing down (and firing the principal who tried to get the board to remove the flags). The article is dated by several years but I haven't been able to find evidence that contradicts the fact that the battle flag is still present on school grounds. I'm shocked there hasn't been more opposition, but then again, this goes for an example of how Eastern Kentucky and other areas of Appalachia are still Southern strongholds- and should be a future target for League events.

The Kentucky League of the South is seeking regional chairmen to help organise the state. Kentucky is a big state- Pike county (furthest east) to Fulton county (furthest west) is a seven hour drive. This can make getting everyone in the state together at every meeting difficult. Dividing into smaller chapters would help solve this issue. The regions are as follows- Northern, Northeast, Southeast, Central, North Central, South Central, Northwestern, and Southwestern. A map of the regions is located under the "Leadership Positions" tab on our website.
Currently, chairmen for Northern, Central, and Southeast Kentucky have been found. If you live in one of the other regions and are interested in becoming a chairman, please send an e-mail to [email protected] for more details.
