Michael Peroutka says Institute on the Constitution led him to the League of the South

I have at times suggested that Michael Peroutka’s “The American View” website (where he promotes the Institute on the Constitution) should really be called “The Confederate View.”

In this video, taken at the 2004 League of the South meeting, Peroutka says the Institute on the Constitution led him to embrace the League of the South.

For those who say the IOTC is just teaching on the Constitution, I show them this and remind them that Peroutka has claimed that teaching the Constitution is preparation for secession.

Salon has an article featuring Peroutka prominently. I agree that the GOP needs to openly reject Peroutka’s candidacy and ideology.
