White Supremacists lend a hand to the "Stop Gay Marriage in Alabama" Rally

Over the weekend about 300 people got together at the Alabama's State Capitol to rally against gay marriage.

Sanctity of Marriage Alabama held this event, but what was noted by JoeMyGod was another group that was present... League Of The South.

This group is pretty much a hate group. Here's a description from SPLC
The League of the South is a neo-Confederate group that advocates for a second Southern secession and a society dominated by “European Americans.” The league believes the “godly” nation it wants to form should be run by an “Anglo-Celtic” (read: white) elite that would establish a Christian theocratic state and politically dominate blacks and other minorities. Originally founded by a group that included many Southern university professors, the group lost its Ph.D.s as it became more explicitly racist. The league denounces the federal government and northern and coastal states as part of “the Empire,” a materialist and anti-religious society.
This group has an interesting history and with them publicly supporting Roy Moore and Sanctity of Marriage Alabama, it will only go downhill from there.
