WorldNetDaily, the online news source for far-right religious kooks, took a break today from peddling loony charges by intelligent design activist Jack Cashill linking Darwin and evolution to the Nazis, communists, capitalists, eugenicists, abortionists, atheists, materialists, satanists, gays, flag burners, and militant J-walkers, to relive some of its past glory.

In a "This Day in WND History" feature under the title "Forget? No way, says southern heritage group" they link to an April 2001 story reporting favorably on a white power group that seeks reparations for "people of historic Southern ancestry."

These "people of historic Southern ancestry," reacting to a demand by African Americans to be compensated for the enslavement of their ancestors, want to dip into the public till themselves to make up for the "barbaric dispossession and destruction of the Southern people and their way of life" during, you guessed it, the Civil War.

"The private property of non-combatants was ravaged, burned, stolen and destroyed as a deliberate policy of an unconstitutional war of invasion, conquest and occupation," sniffs Dr. Michael Hill, president of the League of the South, which describes itself as a Southern Nationalist organization whose ultimate goal is a free and independent Southern republic.

When they speak of dispossession of their property, do you suppose they mean this?
