Message from _AltRight_Anew -AZ in Nice Respectable People Group #announcements
Exactly one year ago, we held a highly successful event: Charlottesville 1.
A year later, **the Alt-Right has imploded**; by now this is hard to deny. And while my apprehensions concerning elements of the broader movement continue to find justification, I take no pleasure in being proven correct. On the contrary, I truly wish that things had turned out differently.
In late 2015, 2016, and most of 2017, there was an electrifying, undeniable feeling that we, the Alt-Right, were going to change the world. There were setbacks, sure, but we felt that we were gaining momentum. We felt that things were approaching a crescendo, which would lead to some sort of major breakthrough.
However, in the months since Charlottesville -- particularly since MSU -- that momentum has been lost. People are dropping out. Organizations are imploding. There will be more of this in the future.
IE, though, has fared quite well as an organization. **Nevertheless, IE was part of the Alt-Right, so its implosion has affected us as well**. People are more hesitant to join organizations due to doxing concerns. Many others have simply lost interest in the cause.
All of this is unfortunate, but it’s not an excuse to give up – if anything, it’s an indication that we need to work harder, smarter, and faster. Even if Trump achieves his agenda, do you think we’ll be saved? Progressivism/globalism will still be the hegemonic ideology in the media, academia, the deep state, etc. Trump might change immigration laws, but the Cathedral will remain. And in a few decades, right-wing politics in America will be an electoral impossibility due to demographics. Eventually, the Left will regain control, and the gloves will come off. As such, we need to do everything that we can to either prevent this from happening, or build sufficient social capital to allow us to withstand Leftist oppression when it arrives.
We mustn’t forget that the we’re ultimately fighting for our very survival. In the words of a modern visionary, “Do not forget that these people want you broke, dead, your kids raped and brainwashed, and they think it's funny.”
So my question to you is this: **What are you going to do about it?**
As you going to make a point to attend every meetup in your area, or are you going to spend your free time playing video games?
Are you going to deliver activism on a regular basis, or are you going to spend your free time partying with normies?
Are you going to sacrifice for our people, or are you going to choose the path of comfort, ease, and complacency?
I know many of you are doing quite a bit for the cause, but **we could all be doing more** – myself included. I’m not of the opinion that we “deserve” homelands, autonomy, or even survival. These are things we purchase through sacrifice and hardship.
**And to be perfectly honest, when I look at the state of our race – both within the movement and without – I do not see a people willing to survive. This needs to change – now.** I’m not advocating that we become bleak and humorless – nor am I expecting you to stop socializing with your normie friends altogether – but we need to start taking things more seriously.
Every day, we’re given a choice between extinction and survival. When you choose to spend your time frivolously, you are choosing extinction. But when you choose work toward the cause, you choose survival. You might not see simple things like flyering, demonstrations, attending meetups, etc. as being significant in the big picture, but they absolutely are. For those who cannot offer their time, we encourage you to become a Patron and support the organization financially.
As such, I’m calling on everyone in here who hasn’t fully committed to the cause to do so. This matters, and we’re only going to get one shot at this. Be the guy who’s at every meetup, creating a better sense of community that gives people a reason not only to join, but also to stay. Do activism on a regular basis – there are many forms that don’t involve showing your face, e.g. park cleanups, charity stuff, etc. Plan local toastmasters events. Work with your coordinator. Become worthy.
**We can absolutely win, but only if we have the will.** So let’s step things up, and do everything we can to regain control of our destiny.
@everyone If you use PGP encryption, this applies to you, but there is a more important lesson to be learned here. For years, there has been a perception of PGP as a supreme sort of uncrackable algorithm, the ultimate protection against the ever-present threat of "them." The moral of this story is that everything has its flaws. No algorithm is perfectly secure. If you are worried about security, face to face talking is the only thing that can't be intercepted.
This is also part of the reason why we have the rules we do and why they will continue to be enforced just as strictly when we move to Rocket Chat. You cannot assume anything you send over the internet is truly secure. All you can do is take steps to reduce the likelihood of compromise.
A few of you may have received invitation emails to our Discord replacement. Please bear with us, as the application is not quite ready yet and the emails were sent automatically in error.
The new program is coming along well and we’ll have more news soon.
Washington State coming in hot with their their first banner drop! Congratulations to @Niko - WA and crew for their very successful activism in the belly of the beast - Seattle!
Edit: I've been given the list of the lads who made this possible, in addition to Niko; @Helbrecht - WA @FoxAndLion - SC @lonewolf19d @kibbles & <@!296074024067530765>
Great work gents 👏🏻
Let's give a round of applause to @Gaius Mucius Scaevola for a simple, yet elegant action at the Peace Officers Memorial in Chicago!
Since Patrick is traveling to California for a local conference this evening, I will be hosting IE's Fireside tonight at 8:30 PM EST. It will be a high energy fireside filled with important updates, news and a couple of really big organizational whitepills! See you all there! @everyone
@everyone we are starting the fireside momentarily
@everyone here is a sneak peek of our in-house discord replacement.
Yuge props to @Procella Eques for pulling this whole thing together so quickly.
I hope your weekend is going well. I have an update from Will, our Legal Advisor:
Some of you may recall that the plaintiffs in the federal civil case pending in the United States District Court for the Western District of Virginia issued subpoenas to Discord for account information relating to no less than forty-eight Discord users. Some of these users are members of Identity Evropa. We are pleased to announce that we have retained an attorney in the State of California - where Discord’s principal offices are located – who focuses his practice in First Amendment matters. On May 16, 2018, with the support of Kyle Bristow, Identity Evropa's Board, and several generous donations by some of you, our attorney filed a motion to quash this subpoena. If successful, the motion will kill the subpoena outright on behalf of ALL forty-eight Discord users. If unsuccessful, the motion will nevertheless assist in setting boundaries on the gross overreach being attempted by the plaintiffs.
The motion relies upon an extensive body of federal First Amendment case law that precludes the use of subpoenas in civil cases to go on “fishing expeditions,” or to intimidate and expose political dissidents such as ourselves. Put another way, the First Amendment’s freedoms of speech and association will not allow the plaintiffs to use “lawfare” to scare us out of exercising our political rights.
Whether successful or not, we believe this motion to represent the first of our many serious counterpunches in this case. More to the point, we want you to know that Identity Evropa will NOT EVER stand by and allow its members to be harassed and intimidated by overpowered, politically driven, and endlessly funded leftist attorneys. To all who donated to this cause, thank you. Remember that this legal battle is still ongoing and will likely be ongoing for the foreseeable future. We will always need donations until it is over.
If you have any questions about this announcement, please contact @Deleted User .
Greetings from the border! I hope you’re having a great weekend.
HIGH ENERGY: Let's give it up for @Logan, who planned this excellent action, in addition to everyone who participated. Great work!
I wrote an article in which I expound, in simplified terms, our plan. It's relatively short, so please give it a read.
We are making an effort to grow our social media presence by driving activity on https://www.reddit.com/r/Identitarians/ This is an exciting undertaking! There is a huge audience on reddit for us to reach with our uplifting, responsible, and disciplined Identitarian message.
We ask that you participate in this subreddit by:
1) Creating a new reddit account that is not linked to irresponsible or self-indulgent comments/posts before participating and then SUBSCRIBE!
2) Submitting links to identitarian activism, news stories, videos (from the US, Europe, and other parts of the Western world). Self improvement, lifting, and success are also topics we want discussed.
3) Starting/participating in quality discussion via the comments section
4) Spread the word to others to join and VISIT DAILY to upvote the best comments and content.
The goal is to create a place for long time identitarians to interact publicly with each other, and for new people to interact with us and receive a warm welcome and have their questions answered. Ideally, you'll be sending high quality and curious "normie" friends here to grow in their ideas and see that we are a positive community that is worth being a part of.
This a NOT an official IE platform, but rather a subreddit that will cover Identitarianism around the globe. Rules specific to the subreddit and further updates will come in the coming weeks, but for now, follow standards of behavior that we have established in our organization and put your best foot forward as this is a public platform!
Thanks for all of your support and participation!
If you have questions, please message me. If you'd like to volunteer to help us moderate, create flair, etc., please send @Prestor John a message
Here's the footage from the border demo! Thanks to @Marty ScorchedEarthse for the fine editing work.
Make sure to RT: https://twitter.com/IdentityEvropa/status/999048077733519361
Here's the YT version as well.
@everyone Zelle (to [email protected]) remains a viable, and preferable, payment option.
Fireside tonight at 8:30 PM EST. See you there!
We'll get started in a few minutes -- I received an important last minute phone call, which I could not ignore. @everyone
I want you all to be on the lookout for an event on the East Coast (Between NYC and DC) that our activists can (peacefully, lawfully) disrupt.
College campuses in particular are good.
I've tasked @Deleted User with finding an appropriate event. Please DM him any leads. @everyone
We are holding our first AMA on https://www.reddit.com/r/Identitarians/ this Sunday May 27th at 1PM Eastern Time. We will have an Italian brother who is close to the Identitarian movement in Italy answering our questions. This is a fantastic opportunity so bring your best questions and invite family/friends to take part if they are curious about our ideas. We'll be holding AMAs with bigger Identitarian names as we can book them. Your help and participation is always greatly appreciated!!!
I hope your week is going well.
This evening, you will all be receiving formal invitations to your member emails for the next major speaking and activism event: **Defend Identity.**
Last weekend of July, North Atlantic. Activism is not a *requirement* in IE, but we are both seeking to provide you with more events and also ask more from each of you. No one has faced adverse consequences for the Parthenon demonstration or for Save The Boer, so don’t miss this event.
Thank you, and I will see you there.
Seems like merch is on the mind, @everyone.
As of today, I have all of Identity Evropa's merchandise in my possession. I will be working on making an inventory of our wares this evening and in the near future, redoing our catalogue, expanding our line of products and before too long, hosting an actual online store!
In the meantime, please dm me if you would like to purchase any merch. If anyone asks about merch in the chat, direct them my way until we have an actual online store up and running.
I currently have:
T-Shirts available for $25
Flags (in both colors) for $20
Stickers: 5 pcs $5
25 pcs $20
50 pcs $30
100 pcs $55
250 pcs $115
and IE Lapel Pins: $10
I hope that @everyone is having an enjoyable 3 day weekend. If you have not done so, I **HIGHLY** encourage everyone to get out and leave flowers by their local Veterans Memorial in honor of Memorial Day.
Do a google search for “Veterans Memorial” or “War Memorial” + (your zipcode). There is probably one within a 20 minute drive. If you want an example of how this should look, take a look in <#359086234175275010> at the actions myself, @Argument of Perigee and @Brunswick have already submitted.
This is perhaps the safest, simplest and cheapest activism (mine cost $8.43) that we can do. Doing actions like these might seem trivial, but it is excellent PR and social proof to our communities that Identity Evropa is a positive force in this nation.
We are perhaps the **only** organization in this country who truly care about our historic demographic; Americans of European descent. We are perhaps the **only** group that understands the complex history of America with a nuanced and forthright view, and we are certainly the **only** people addressing the difficult questions about our Nation’s future in a bold and honest manner.
**Let’s “put our money where our mouth is” and demonstrate that this weekend!** 🇺🇸 <:deye:359010025223618570>
The latest episode of *Identitarian Action* is up! Thanks you, @Freiheit - CA, for continuing to do an excellent job of editing these.
I hope you're having a great weekend!
Heads up @everyone . We are live with our first Ask Me Anything. We have Alex, a GI activist in Italy answering our questions. Come join us at https://www.reddit.com/r/Identitarians/ and ask questions and upvote the questions you want him to answer. He will be live for about an hour. He will also follow up tomorrow and answer any good questions you leave.
