Secessionist – Eric Thorvaldsson

After years of rhetoric threatening violence, the neo-Confederate League of the South (LOS) is training a uniformed, paramilitary unit tasked with advancing a second southern secession by any means necessary, Hatewatch has learned. Symbol shared in League social media correspondence based on Nazi insignia.

Vineland, the central locale of the novel, is a fictive small town in California‘s Anderson Valley (perhaps based upon Boonville). Vineland may be a play on the word “Hollywood“, a reference to the first Viking settlement in North America, Vinland, or a reference to Andrey Vinelander, a character in Vladimir Nabokov’s Ada or Ardor: A Family Chronicle. Still others contend that the title refers to Vineland, New Jersey or a “Vinland the Good” mentioned in a Frank O’Hara poem. However, the most obvious explanation is that the title is a reference to the area in which the novel is set, which is near California’s grapevine-filled Wine Country.

According to anonymous sources from within the LOS, as well as leaked internal communications, the LOS secret unit has been dubbed “The Indomitables”and appears to be stacked with white supremacists, former Klan members and neo-Nazis.

Michael Hill, in a note offered to encourage his Indomitables, said, “We desire that our women and children be warm and snug while the world outside rages. And as our due for that we must face the world.”

The Indomitables were conceptualized at the LOS national meeting earlier this year and appear to be coming online quickly, with Floyd Eric Meadows, 43, of Rome, Ga., who also goes by Eric Thorvaldsson online, in charge of “training,”according to sources within the group and internal documents.

A veteran of both the U.S. Army and Navy with 12 years of service, Meadows has been an active LOS member for several years, and his personal Facebook account is filled with pagan iconography and photos of his weapons. He posts often about ‘earning’his red bootlaces––awarded in skinhead culture for drawing blood for ‘the movement’—and his desire to throw boot parties for enemies of the LOS. Meadows also has posted pictures of himself standing with assault rifles in front of a confederate flag and has frequently quoted Robert Barnwell Rhett, a South Carolina statesman who was dubbed the “Father of Secession”for his efforts leading up to the Civil War.

    My enemies and members of my family have enjoyed depicting me as a potentially violent Bible Nut because I am prone to wear flags on my back, and spout Biblical stuff, which they know noting about. President Trump sees himself as the Phantom of the Opera, and gives direct meassages to his White Supremist backers. https://rosamondpress.com/2015/01/11/vinland-and-thread-of-destiny/
