Let’s Keep Dixie Southern – BUT We’re Going to Have to Work at It!

It’s nice to live in a rural county in North Central Florida. A county that still retains much of it Southern character.

Just last Friday my wife and I stopped by our local Save-A-Lot grocery store. In the parking lot were two Levy County Sheriff’s vehicles and several people were standing around a car. My wife encouraged me to park away from the commotion, whatever it was.

As we exited the store, there were now four units parked around the aforementioned vehicle. As I looked closer, I realized that these deputies were all attempting to open a car that someone had accidently locked themselves out of. That’s right, four units dispatched on a Friday afternoon, all to help someone open their car in the Save-A-Lot parking lot.

I don’t think you’ll see this happening in Miami or Atlanta or any other larger city.

The Save-a-Lot is located in Bronson, our county seat (population 1133). The two largest cities in our county are Williston (population 2718) and Chiefland (population 2169). In the past several weeks BLM protests were held in each of these three cities. Some of those protests, perhaps all of them, were organized by folks not living in our county.

Additionally on Saturday there was what was billed as a “Party/Protest” held in East Williston (predominately black) to protest against what was called “inequitable narratives” about the black community by the press and by the sheriff’s department. That protest started at 10pm; participants were asked to leave guns and drugs at home. At least six people were shot (none of them were from Levy County). There were over 700 attendees (many, if not most of them, from outside our county). That protest was also organized by someone not living in our county.

If we do nothing, carpetbaggers, scalawags, BLM, Antifa, and other outside agitators will change the character of our rural communities forever. We have to demand that we be left alone to live our lives as we have chosen. Our President, Jefferson Davis, had the right idea.

A final note, the problem is not really with the black residents of Levy County, but with outside agitators. In fact I have a black neighbor that I would certainly not trade for any random white resident of the county.

What we don’t need in Levy County, or in other rural Southern counties, are meddling yankees intent on conforming us to their distorted views of reality and fashioning us into their own perverted images.

Deo Vindice!

You Are Being Conditioned! It Is Imperative That You Resist!


They say: “It’s just a mask.” – And if you don’t wear one you can’t go shopping, and besides, it’s for your own good.

  -- You respond: “Well, OK”

They say: “It’s just a vaccine.” – And if you don’t receive it you can’t go shopping and besides, it’s for your own good.

  -- You respond: “Well, OK”

They say: “It’s just an implanted chip.” – And if you don’t have one in your hand or forehead you can’t go shopping and besides, it’s for your own good and convenience.

  -- You respond: “Well, OK”

BUT, what if it’s not OK?

What if there are inspired writings that address such circumstances?

Revelation 13:16-17 
And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:  (17)  And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

Revelation 19:20-21 
And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.  (21)  And the remnant were slain with the sword of him that sat upon the horse, which sword proceeded out of his mouth: and all the fowls were filled with their flesh.

I believe that we are being conditioned to accept ever increasing encroachments upon our persons and our rights. One step at a time.

Perhaps now is the time to cultivate and practice resistance, before they actually require that you receive a mark in the form of an implant.

Perhaps now is the time to: JUST SAY NO! – and mean it!

Perhaps you should at least give these things some consideration.

Encouraging Day at the Watermelon Festival

Some of you may have already seen the pictures I posted earlier this week. In today’s blog I will relate just a few more thoughts about our day at the Newberry Watermelon Festival on Saturday, June 20, 2020.


In light of Newberry’s proximity to the socialist enclave of Gainesville (home of the Marxist University of Florida), we thought there was a real possibility of being confronted by some of the communist agitators from BLM or Antifa, etc. Thankfully the day passed with nary a negative comment from anyone at the festival, at least not in our hearing.

Many folks expressed their sincere thankfulness for our presence at the event. Several folks took pictures of our booth for the purpose of sharing them with friends across the country.

We sold a record number of flags. In fact, we sold out of several different items. Our total sales were $492.00. I’ve already ordered over $700 of replacement flags to make sure we can meet the demands at future events. There seems to be an increasing interest. Our biggest sellers were Confederate Battle Flags, “I Ain’t Coming Down” Battle Flags, “Don’t Tread on Me” Gadsden Flags, and AR-15 “Come and Take It” Gonzales Flags.


We also had more people sign up for our flag raffle than we ever have had at this particular event (90) and we’ve been participating here since 2012.


We will be sending flags to the winners of the raffle and a single informational email and postal letter to each person who entered. Hopefully some will request to be added permanently to our mailing list and some may even join with us in our struggle for a “Free, Independent, Godly, Prosperous, and Traditionally Southern Florida.” That is why we hold the raffles.

We had five of our members present to help man the booth. Unfortunately we didn’t get pictures of everyone (such is the life of a photographer).


We also had a special guest with us through much of the day, Nansea Markham, whom the Lord used mightily in preserving “Old Joe.” “Old Joe” is the Confederate Statue that was at the courthouse in Gainesville for well over one hundred years. The city was in the process of removing “Old Joe” when Nansea presented the original deed showing that the statue was owned by the United Daughters of the Confederacy. Through a series of near miracles and some very hard work “Old Joe” was eventually moved to a new and secure home.

You can read a summary of that inspiring story here:
https://www.abbevilleinstitute.org/blog/rescuing-old-joe/

Also there is an album of photos I created from the rededication of “Old Joe” back in January of 2018. (If you don’t have a Facebook account, just click the “Not Now” link at the bottom of the pop-up window and you should be able to view the album):

Overall it was a blessed day, and we were greatly encouraged. I believe that God was honored and that we were an encouragement to others as well.

It is more important now than it has ever been that we take a stand and show the banners of our fathers and that we take up their Cause as our own. So long as the Lord allows, that’s exactly what we intend to do.


I was further encouraged after I sent a “Thank You” note to the event organizers. They responded very positively, saying: “Thank you for supporting us throughout the years!  See ya next year!”

Next up will be the Williston Peanut Festival in October, Lord willing. But in today’s political climate who knows what might transpire in the interim. After all, we’ve been refused booth space in other events, stretching back to 2011.

Here’s a little background to our rejection at the Archer Yulee Railroad Days:

(FYI: At that time we were still affiliated with the League of the South, an affiliation we later severed FOR CAUSE. We have been an independent organization since 2013.)

By the Grace of God -- Let Us PRESS ON!

Some Thoughts on Our Upside Down World


The message I brought  to the Lord’s little flock here in Archer, Florida this past Sunday was entitled “Some Thoughts on Our Upside Down World.”

I downloaded the video from Facebook Live and offer it here for your consideration, should you be interested:


Some Thoughts on Our Upside Down World
Sermon preached on June 14, 2020.
Posted by Greg Wilson on Monday, June 15, 2020

Amongst the things addressed in the sermon:

-    The “diversity” of the four police officers involved in the murder of the career criminal and thug, George Floyd.

-    Why does a murder committed by four yankee cops require the destruction of Southern Christian Heritage and Culture?

-    The need for memorials and remembrances as shown from Scripture.

-    Don’t depend on government or anyone else – raise up your own monuments and flags.

-    Remember that God is still on His throne and is working His perfect will in ALL THINGS!

If you are interested in hearing more:

Our service have been being broadcast on Facebook Live since 2017 (except when inclement weather knocks out our satellite internet, and then they are posted later in audio only format).

You can request to join the “Services from Landmark Baptist” here:
https://www.facebook.com/groups/LandmarkMessages/

Once approved you can view all the archived sermons.

Also audio of our sermons are available on our web site dating back to 2007.

Once again, I invite you to join us at the Newberry Watermelon festival this Saturday, June 20, 2020.

See last week’s blog for details:

1 Corinthians 16:13 -- Watch ye, stand fast in the faith, quit you like men, be strong.

Free Florida First at the Newberry Watermelon Festival on Saturday, June 20, 2020


Hopefully Free Florida First will have a booth at the Newberry Watermelon Festival on Saturday, June 20, 2020. The Festival was originally scheduled for May 16, 2020, but postponed due to the restrictions imposed by tyrannical government in connection with the Covid-19 Panic. At this point, I’m still not sure that the powers to be will allow the festival to proceed next weekend.

On top of that, it will also be interesting to see how the organizers of the festival will handle our participation. We have had a booth for some nine years now, but I suspect that the level of controversy surrounding us will be considerably increased this year. Y’all pray for us. I suspect that it will be an interesting Saturday, assuming that we are permitted to proceed. As with all things, it is in the hands of God.

The event is scheduled to be held from 9am-4pm at the Country Way Town Square in Newberry, Florida. Why don’t you come out and introduce yourself to us! (NOTE: Parking for the festival is $5.)


Newberry Watermelon Festival Facebook Page:

Newberry Watermelon Festival Web Page (includes map at the bottom of the homepage):

Every year we set up booths at several area festivals. It is an opportunity to get ourselves before the public and let folks know that some of us still strive to stand in the old ways and ask for the old paths. We proudly display the banners of our fathers and encourage folks to work for a Free, Independent, Godly, Prosperous, and Traditionally Southern Florida.

Jeremiah 6:16a
Thus saith the LORD, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls. . . .

We believe that it is increasingly important for us to show our devotion to the principles that undergirded the Confederate States of America and to make our presence known in our local community.  We strongly advocate for individual liberty and a minuscule government that is truly by the consent of the governed. Won’t you consider joining with us?

One of our members at the festival in a previous year

Here is an album containing photos of our participation at the festival in the past:

So, come out to the Watermelon Festival, visit with us, and buy some flags to help support our efforts, and then go home and fly them, to show your own commitment to liberty and truth.

Here’s a sample of the 3’ X 5’ flags we offer for sale at the festival for $10 each or three (3) for $25.


The proceeds from our sales help us to continue our work for liberty and truth.

Stand and show your colors and FIGHT FOR DIXIE!


By the Grace of God we will continue to do so!
