The problem is if you make a public event some poor sod will show up and get caught in the crossfire.

2019-01-29 05:16:36 UTC

well just say it's for IE members only

2019-01-29 05:16:38 UTC

They fell for Patrick being in DC so they'd foam at the mouth at the idea of filming an action

2019-01-29 05:16:46 UTC

if someone wants to disobey our rules that's their problem

2019-01-29 05:17:03 UTC

It was more fun just to talk about. I didnt think we were serious.

2019-01-29 05:17:15 UTC

nah we're serious

2019-01-29 05:17:15 UTC

Just send an anonymous tip that we'd be meeting somewhere and woopsies, no one showed up <:teehee:381917632359563264>

2019-01-29 05:17:42 UTC

And I'm still waiting for the IE moonbase to be finished.

2019-01-29 05:18:10 UTC

"hey I've infiltrated IE, here's evidence, they're gonna have a rally at bla bla bla"

2019-01-29 05:19:45 UTC

Well on one hand it could be hilarious. on the other hand, we lost our twitter, and maybe we should try to be nice to mainstream media so they'll give us coverage. even when they say negative things about us, they do get us out to lots more people

2019-01-29 05:20:17 UTC

@Jacob can I task you with something

2019-01-29 05:21:11 UTC

possibly

2019-01-29 05:21:30 UTC

Bully @Lawrence of Eurabia to attend LOPF

2019-01-29 05:21:40 UTC
2019-01-29 05:22:05 UTC

all the guys on the Nationalist Review server are probably gonna think you're really cool

2019-01-29 05:22:22 UTC

Outsourcing all bullying tactics from now on

2019-01-29 05:22:44 UTC

Anyone who doesn't go to LOPF is infinity gh3y

2019-01-29 05:23:01 UTC

we should pay Chinese child laborers to make Discord accounts and pressure people into going to events

2019-01-29 05:23:59 UTC

I've got ROTC stuff that weekend......I can't really skip that stuff

2019-01-29 05:25:22 UTC

All MT members are going in cowboy boots and bolo ties, I've already ordered your set

2019-01-29 05:26:18 UTC

*huh, I didn't know half of IE membership is in ROTC*

2019-01-29 05:26:21 UTC

I'll see what I can do, as of now we've got a weekend lab scheduled

2019-01-29 05:26:41 UTC

MT is just cosplaying as Doug Dimmadome to LOPF

2019-01-29 05:26:43 UTC

things change though

2019-01-29 05:26:45 UTC

haha well would you look at that

2019-01-29 05:26:49 UTC

I have ROTC stuff too

2019-01-29 05:27:04 UTC

sorry guys I'd love to go, but, you know

2019-01-29 05:27:16 UTC

jk I know that's a valid reason

2019-01-29 05:27:27 UTC

Duty calls. Gotta save the country

2019-01-29 05:27:44 UTC

I have to go to uhh *checks notes* Polish ROTC that weekend

2019-01-29 05:27:48 UTC

gotta save israel

2019-01-29 05:27:50 UTC

you know, dual citizen obligations and all

2019-01-29 05:30:04 UTC

@Lawrence of Eurabia I've got your transport and lodging covered if things change

2019-01-29 05:35:02 UTC

I like it.

2019-01-29 05:35:11 UTC

I actually went to Cracker Barrel tonight on the way home from Chicago.

2019-01-29 05:35:48 UTC

I got the country fried steak my first time there. It was so good.

2019-01-29 05:36:08 UTC

And I'm usually the guy that accuses people of exaggerating how good something is.

2019-01-29 05:36:51 UTC

I've never been to cracker barrel...

2019-01-29 05:37:04 UTC

Good thing we vet pledges than

2019-01-29 05:37:33 UTC

Are there any in socal? I've never seen them

2019-01-29 05:38:59 UTC

We have inn n out though. It's the superior burger

2019-01-29 05:39:10 UTC

Cracker barrel actually has a pretty steady stock

2019-01-29 05:39:31 UTC

There don't appear to be many in SoCal, nearest one to LA is 60 miles away

2019-01-29 05:40:05 UTC

Somehow don't think LA Is the target demographic

2019-01-29 05:40:20 UTC

Haha! Yes. True.

2019-01-29 05:40:53 UTC

Who's signed up for the conference?

2019-01-29 05:41:15 UTC

All the cool kids

2019-01-29 05:41:31 UTC

Also there's 51 cracker barrels within 50 miles of Chicago

2019-01-29 05:42:40 UTC

okay guys listen to this

2019-01-29 05:42:55 UTC

you know how corporations will lobby for policies that benefit their business?

2019-01-29 05:43:04 UTC

Cracker Barrel should lobby against demographic change

2019-01-29 05:43:09 UTC

think about it

2019-01-29 05:43:13 UTC

only white people go there

2019-01-29 05:43:21 UTC

so if we become a minority that's bad for business

2019-01-29 05:43:31 UTC

we should actually pitch this to the CEO or whoever

2019-01-29 05:44:13 UTC

Can't do LOPF but I might try to make it to the Utah event.

2019-01-29 05:46:30 UTC

Signing up next week. Minor zelle issue on my end delayed it. Baby and wife will not be making an appearance unfortunately

2019-01-29 05:46:48 UTC

my bank doesn't use zelle

2019-01-29 05:48:07 UTC

dude we should have the IE baby speak at a conference once he's old enough

2019-01-29 05:48:17 UTC

He's the chosen one

2019-01-29 05:48:36 UTC

Sent to deliver us from the unbearable incompetence of IE's current leadership.

2019-01-29 05:48:43 UTC

uh oh

2019-01-29 05:49:38 UTC

@Reinhard Wolff While you are available if you don't mind me asking is there a certain day or time frame for cash payments to be processed? I mailed my dues awhile ago and haven't seen any update about them being paid.

2019-01-29 05:50:03 UTC

Hmm

2019-01-29 05:50:09 UTC

I checked the PO box a few hours ago.

2019-01-29 05:50:28 UTC

Shoot me a DM with the name or alias you included with your dues and I'll check our records.

2019-01-29 05:52:10 UTC

@Valaska bolo ties are implicitly Arizonian I kindly ask you don’t use my culture for a costume.

2019-01-29 05:52:13 UTC

@Lawrence of Eurabia you can still use it, you are just limited to 500 a week which is the problem I was having

2019-01-29 05:54:22 UTC

Logan sending remittances 🤔

2019-01-29 05:54:22 UTC

@MrDefault I didn't know they were official in AZ lol

2019-01-29 05:56:53 UTC

Sending remittances back to California...we need a wall.

2019-01-29 05:57:26 UTC

@Reinhard Wolff amen 🙏

2019-01-29 05:59:56 UTC

I had to share this! Cam footage From noon today,I believe its a sign from our Mother's looking in on us to say "Everything is gonna be ok". Was just talking about signs with family the other night. I'm just loving this!! Have Happy Tears😍❤

Beautiful Hummingbird definitely a sign from both our mama's!😍

McCreary County, Kentucky is the poorest county in the United States. It is also 97.99% white.

@Hakujin - CA Isn't per capita income better than household income? A household could be any size

2019-01-29 06:16:27 UTC

@Jacob Per Capita income is $9,896

2019-01-29 06:17:10 UTC

that's about as much as I live off of lol

2019-01-29 06:19:23 UTC

though if that's per capita, that's pretty bad, because it means that probably around half of people make less than that

2019-01-29 06:20:12 UTC

It's the only county in the US where the majority lives under $10,000 a year.

2019-01-29 06:20:27 UTC

I live a pretty okay life off around $10,000 a year in Eastern Washington

2019-01-29 06:20:46 UTC

less than that would be 😬 though

2019-01-29 06:23:27 UTC

I actually never calculated it until now. Pretty amazing now that I think about it.

2019-01-29 06:23:59 UTC

It's enough to pay my rent, not starve, and go on small trips

2019-01-29 06:34:38 UTC

Rent here is 1,000 for a 1 bedroom in a commieblock

2019-01-29 06:48:46 UTC

2019-01-29 07:22:48 UTC

and no, I didn't dox myself, I haven't lived there since I was 5 so idk what Antifa is gonna do with that information

Literally what did the professor do wrong

2019-01-29 09:23:50 UTC

A nation that separates its warriors from its scholars will have its fighting done by fools, and its thinking done by cowards. The professor was wrong for being a coward

2019-01-29 13:01:29 UTC

Gooood morning Evropa! Feeling good.

2019-01-29 13:12:58 UTC

Good morning

Japan is so cool..

2019-01-29 15:43:31 UTC

They have robots and anime and they actually want their culture to survive

2019-01-29 15:55:38 UTC

@Current Ronin we have robots and anime too though

2019-01-29 16:04:28 UTC

I dunno about our robots, but our anime could use some work. But yeah, Japan is pretty cool. Despite their weird vending machines.

2019-01-29 16:04:44 UTC

We'll see how "based" Japan is over the next 5 years or so...
https://theglobepost.com/2019/01/25/japan-foreign-workers/

2019-01-29 16:05:35 UTC

Oh no

2019-01-29 16:05:40 UTC

I see this as the start of something bad for Japan.

2019-01-29 16:06:57 UTC

Just seems like it opens the door to more and more immigration. "Slippery slope" and all that.

2019-01-29 16:10:56 UTC

Why though? Japan is arguably the most automated country in the world, what do they need a large low skilled foreign workforce for?

2019-01-29 16:13:12 UTC

Notice how immigration only happens in the direction flowing out of all of those countries. No one is immigrating to where they’re leaving from.

2019-01-29 16:15:47 UTC

Great move, now your low crime homogenous country can turn into another multicultural hell like the rest of the world.

2019-01-29 16:15:47 UTC

Not trying to make a distinction without a difference, but I know a couple of my parents boomer friends that bought a condo and retired in Mexico

2019-01-29 16:16:15 UTC

Exceptions aren't the rule...

2019-01-29 16:16:20 UTC

And no. They weren’t Mexicans “going back,” they’re from Poland

2019-01-29 16:16:56 UTC

I'm sure retiring in Mexico is nice and cheap for the boomers.

2019-01-29 16:17:29 UTC

I know black people who don't commit crime. That doesn't mean blacks do not commit (certain) crime at a higher rate than whites.

2019-01-29 16:18:37 UTC

But the trend is crappy people flooding good countries, not the other way around. The other way would be called "colonization" by the same people advocating for mass immigration into first world countries.

2019-01-29 16:18:55 UTC

I was just pointing out a statistical anomaly. That the couple made that decision still blows my mind

2019-01-29 16:19:19 UTC

Makes financial sense really.

2019-01-29 16:20:20 UTC

Have you seen the article about the experiences of a few of the African Americans have had that moved to west Africa in the last decade? A few thousand of them have made the move. I think that should be encouraged.

2019-01-29 16:20:53 UTC

Not that it would help us much numerically but I think it helps our narratives

2019-01-29 16:21:05 UTC

I'm all for that.

2019-01-29 16:21:17 UTC

I think some hotep was talking about it he’s like yeah I’m comfortable here in the land of my ancestors

2019-01-29 16:21:45 UTC

@sigruna14 how do you know they don’t commit crime? <:usinnoodle:420778112226164736>

2019-01-29 16:22:58 UTC

I mean for that matter I don't know any black people right at the moment. It was more rhetorical.

2019-01-29 16:23:29 UTC

But most people of any group do not commit crime.

2019-01-29 16:23:43 UTC

Speaking of immigration, Sargon was showing an article about some school in the UK that is now 98% Muslim. <:sad:366743316475281408>

2019-01-29 16:23:44 UTC

Doesn't change statistical trends that you know of one.

2019-01-29 16:24:06 UTC

But hey, we aren't being replaced in our homelands, whitey!

2019-01-29 16:24:21 UTC

There’s probably a school like that in Dearborn MI

2019-01-29 16:25:15 UTC

I’m not changing my mind here, fast food is one of the greatest plagues on America that there is.

2019-01-29 16:25:41 UTC

I’m sick of seeing fatties

2019-01-29 16:25:43 UTC

"As life becomes precarious and dangerous in US" <:really:453005408064241674>
It's literally other blacks making it dangerous here.

2019-01-29 16:28:21 UTC

I was watching some doc about fast food that's popping up in the Middle East and half the people eating in them were chubby/fat.

2019-01-29 16:29:02 UTC

Happening in asia, and sadly Europe as well

2019-01-29 16:29:29 UTC

Although Europe is head and shoulders above America in the physical size department

2019-01-29 16:30:18 UTC

From my tainted American eyes I thought a lot of the euro girls could use a hamburger, but then I realized THAT was normal, not what we have here

2019-01-29 16:31:05 UTC

Something like 30% of Americans are obese now. <:sad:366743316475281408>

2019-01-29 16:32:56 UTC

I see so many disgustingly fat white people nowadays. 😕 Especially in the rural areas.

2019-01-29 16:35:21 UTC

The brilliant minds decided in the 80s to switch our focus to “low fat” which in practice became super high carb

2019-01-29 16:36:21 UTC

50% of black adults are ovese, so once again if you remove blacks from their over representative nature in stats the obesity rate drops noticeably

2019-01-29 16:36:31 UTC

Not saying obesity isn't a real issue bu the way

2019-01-29 16:37:06 UTC

I notice a lot of large Guadalupe’s and Julio’s in my area as well

2019-01-29 16:37:29 UTC

Too much corn, tortillas and hot chips

2019-01-29 16:37:40 UTC

I've noticed a disproportionate amount of fat minority women, actually. <:thinkplant:359034245777457173>

2019-01-29 16:39:40 UTC

Of course minority obesity is because of whitey oppressing them and making them poor, so they're forced to buy fast food 3 days a week

2019-01-29 16:42:07 UTC

@Nome Sayings that's pretty cool, why Mexico?

2019-01-29 16:42:28 UTC

Why did they retire in Mexico, I mean

2019-01-29 16:42:32 UTC

Cheap

2019-01-29 16:42:46 UTC

Better weather than here, no snow

2019-01-29 16:43:41 UTC

I get the feeling it’s a resort for retired types based on pics ive seen on social media. They have their own restaurants and whatnot. So they don’t mingle much with the outside

2019-01-29 16:43:46 UTC

Except for service workers

2019-01-29 16:44:41 UTC

Then the husband posted an article about the shootings in Chicago saying he felt safer in Mexico 😂

2019-01-29 16:44:48 UTC

Just a boomer

2019-01-29 16:44:57 UTC

Damn

2019-01-29 16:45:00 UTC

Check the post in cyberstrike if you want to help nudge this state senator to see more clearly

2019-01-29 16:45:05 UTC

Mexico has the 2nd highest homicide rate in the world

2019-01-29 16:45:08 UTC

I know guys do Costa Rica

2019-01-29 16:45:16 UTC

Mexico seems a little risky

2019-01-29 16:45:24 UTC

For sure, I agree

2019-01-29 16:47:06 UTC

@Nome Sayings
>moves to a huwhite majority area in Mexico and doesn't mingle with the brown people

says he feels safer in Mexico. <:really:453005408064241674>

2019-01-29 16:48:25 UTC

Literally within 2 weeks a bunch of headless bodies were discovered in Mexico

2019-01-29 16:48:39 UTC

It's cool living in a little closed in area of a terrible country, until the locals decide to climb the walls when they realize how good you have it

2019-01-29 16:48:42 UTC

so a normal weekend in Mexico?

2019-01-29 16:49:07 UTC

Yup standard weekend

2019-01-29 16:57:19 UTC

Did you know you could fill the United Center (where Chicago bulls play) with the number of people who have been shot in the city over the last six years.

2019-01-29 16:59:11 UTC

I'd be fine with framing it as slavery reperations. 20 grand and a plane ticket to for your passport/citizenship.

2019-01-29 17:57:25 UTC

I still have mine

2019-01-29 17:59:22 UTC

I know I’m just saying Xbox is better

2019-01-29 17:59:25 UTC

Just bullying

2019-01-29 18:03:22 UTC

@DrewMT Make sure you’re putting your full email as the username

2019-01-29 18:07:41 UTC

I’ve had problems on desktop

2019-01-29 18:07:43 UTC

I have Xbox and PC but honestly there’s no point in owning both. If you have a pc get a PS4 they have great exclusives

The Virginia House of Delegates just rejected passage of the ERA. The real question is if any of the states in red will rescind their ratification before it's too late.

Imagine not saying “ratchet and clank” and then both star wars battlefronts

2019-01-29 18:27:33 UTC

I do have Star Wars Battlefronts

2019-01-29 18:27:34 UTC

Both

2019-01-29 18:27:35 UTC

@Hakujin - CA What's the ERA?

2019-01-29 18:27:42 UTC

1 and 2

2019-01-29 18:31:21 UTC

@fgtveassassin Equal Rights Amendment. A radical feminist amendment to the constitution with an insidious sounding name.

2019-01-29 18:32:14 UTC

You can usually tell what type of legislation it is by the name. It's generally the opposite of what they claim.

2019-01-29 18:32:51 UTC

That's my hot boomer take

Have you guys seen the ted bundy netflix doc?

2019-01-29 19:07:02 UTC

It's amazing to me that they will unperson anyone even close to the alt right but they will do an in depth ted bundy documentary. He was a monster and gets to be on Netflix but IE can't have a twitter

2019-01-29 19:08:27 UTC

@Current Ronin So true. I think the media explicitly looks to highlight the worst examples from the right and the best examples from the left, while hiding the best examples from the right and the worst examples from the left.

2019-01-29 19:09:33 UTC

It's insane dude. anyone who thinks I'm a conspiracy theorist for noticing this can go take a hike. Pardon my language

2019-01-29 19:13:26 UTC

If it's true then we go from being conspiracy theorists to conspiracy scientists

2019-01-29 19:13:52 UTC

or conspiracy alchemists...

Was thinking about automation/AI the other day and I was wondering where you fellas stand on it, maybe help me with my own 'dilemma' what is/how do you find a good balance between automation and not relying on to the point of not being able to function without it/enough people still being employable instead of just having one code monkey work on everything?

2019-01-29 19:44:49 UTC

I don’t want to get to the point of singularity where AI essentially does everything, but with China unafraid to do this and pursuing the creation of 200 IQ children I think we have to

2019-01-29 19:45:25 UTC

@Fred X - NJ well i called.
that was the first time i complained to a black guy about his boss's anti-white rhetoric.
nice guy... 10/10 would call again

2019-01-29 19:46:57 UTC

@fgtveassassin I mean if we get be space marines and be bad ass space explores then im okay with it

2019-01-29 19:48:04 UTC

Assuming that's an option. But I feel like advanced technology is just gonna improve the speed at which porn and fast food can get to you

2019-01-29 19:50:23 UTC

@fgtveassassin elites around the world are going to reduce the population at the soonest chance. One-child policies would be best case scenario. I think they have additional measures planned though.

Seems like it is all about who is sitting on top when the music stops. I'm not sure when that is but it would require automated trucks and automated mechanics so it could be several decades out.

2019-01-29 20:00:10 UTC

Automated trucks would be the first big step. Universal income and medicare would be required at that point to lay off most of those truck drivers in just a few years. European gun control measures, hate-speech laws, and one-child policies in blue states would probably accompany such a move and that could all happen in the next two decades.
I was thinking about this a lot the past two days. It was a disturbing thought but it doesn't have to be. There are other ways to handle it too. Like Tuckerism. Shut down all immigration and defend jobs from automation. They did it in Oregon for many years with with law barring motorists from pumping their own gas and it was fairly popular because Oregonians saw it as a way to keep state taxes low. Maybe an Oregonian can correct me on that.

2019-01-29 20:06:27 UTC

How did not allowing people in Oregon to pump their own gas cut down on automation?

2019-01-29 20:08:02 UTC

I don't think it is. It is just a way to boost employment

2019-01-29 20:08:46 UTC

Its not the worst idea, even though I don't like not pumping my own gas

2019-01-29 20:09:20 UTC

from popularmechanics: "In 1951, when Oregon first passed the law mandating gas station attendants, the rule made sense. The state was concerned about random, untrained people handling potentially explosive liquids. At the time, many states had similar laws on the books, but a lot has changed since 1951, and gas stations and pumps are much safer now.

In most states, gas station attendants died out during the oil crises in 1973 and 1979, when people were looking for any way to save a few cents at the pump. But for whatever reason, Oregon and New Jersey decided against repealing their laws, either to save jobs or because the people in those states are naturally stubborn traditionalists."

2019-01-29 20:10:43 UTC

I think it can be argued it is a case of automation because tools improved which allowed untrained persons to do it. Kind of like how the construction industry is developing new tools which cut down the size and skill of work crews.

2019-01-29 20:12:00 UTC

we had a funny interaction at the checkout line. The girl checking us out had lived in California too and she said they moved because her family does general contracting and "well, you know..."
so I said "third world scab labor?" and she confirmed this was the case

2019-01-29 20:13:53 UTC

Third world scab labor is cheap labor for a GC

2019-01-29 20:16:32 UTC

Every free lance white worker thinks he’s a company and is going to quote me for a job. They’re looking for suckers not honest work, often times to feed a pill addiction. $15/hr or no thanks

2019-01-29 20:18:04 UTC

And that’s 5 dollars more than a Mexican.
