    There's a certain amount of pure frippery in any cultural movement including Southern heritage -- but here's a new group dedicated to Southern-related heraldry that's got intelligence, imagination, and a good conservative tilt.

    This event is held near me every year, but I've never made it over. Just learned of the wedding via a newspaper 220 miles away, by way of a newsletter based 415 miles away.

    <h1 style="font-family: Verdana,Arial,Helvetica,sans-serif; color: rgb(102, 0, 0);">Clad in Confederate garb, couple say, 'I do'</h1>All Tami Massingill wanted for her wedding
    was a nice cake and some pretty invitations.
    </span>
    But the 36-year-old bride and her betrothed, 37-year-old Danny Smith, were
    able to get in a period drama before their vows.
    On Friday, the two participated in a Civil War re-enactment of the Battle of
    Central at the Tankersley Farm near the town of Central.
    "I did struggle with the thought of not having this nice, elegant wedding,"
    Massingill said. "But overall, the fun of it won out."
    About 50 people attended the event, which included a minister wearing period
    garments at the farm overlooking the Appalachian Mountains and far from modern
    sights.
    "When I'm on the field it's always like it's 1861," Smith said.
    And although she wore a hoop-skirt and he wore a Confederate States of
    America soldier's uniform, the couple managed a few more modern wedding touches,
    such as throwing the bouquet, sipping champagne and the endless line of
    photos.

    I listened to this (via SHNV) waiting to cringe, but for once there's NO COMPROMISE.

    An article entitled "Eight of America’s top ten “religious” states are in the South"

    If you’ve ever wondered why certain elements of the Jewish lobby have such an intense disdain for the South, this may help you understand why.

    An article entitled "The horror of democracy"

    Southern nationalists have long identified democracy, equality and universal suffrage with the decline and fall of civilisation. The South’s defense of civilisation was based in large part on an embrace of the natural inequality of individuals and groups of people. As a classically-inspired civilisation, there was an important role in Southern society for natural elites (such as Wade Hampton) who led their local communities, provided social services and led the defense of the society and its order against its enemies. The US invasion and occupation of the Southern States and its subsequent Reconstruction of society had the effect of largely eliminating Southern natural elites, leaving the South vulnerable to the coordinated assault upon it in the 1950s and 60s. Few genuine Southern elites were left by that time to rally the people in defense of civilisation. The consequences of this have been terrible for Southerners to endure. The United States’ values of democracy, ‘Progress,’ equality and universal suffrage were imposed upon Southern society and the results can be seen in the sad and ever-worsening conditions of cities such as Atlanta, Memphis, Birmingham, Montgomery and Augusta. Civilisation is on the retreat in these and many other areas across the South.
    http://southernnationalist.com/blog/...-of-democracy/

    The "natural elites" are the racially aware. The ones who see that the nation and the world is on the wrong path are the ones who can lead the world back to the natural order and a new golden age.
