Messsage from sigruna14 in Nice Respectable People Group #announcements
DM me if you have graphic design experience and are capable of putting some work in tonight and tomorrow.
@everyone If your name on your bank account has initials JM and you recently sent a dues payment via Zelle, contact @Ben - OH so he can properly credit it to you.
The PO Box issue from earlier this week was resolved, and the site is up to date. Thank you for your patience!
It is with a heavy heart that I hereby formally announce my resignation from Identity Evropa.
While I took the position with only the best of intentions, I will confess that the subsequent wealth and riches led me down a dark path. Prior to becoming Executive Director, I had only seen a few anime series, and remained ambivalent about the genre as a whole. However, after a few weeks in my new position, I found myself entirely unable to stop watching anime. Some days, I would just sit in my truck and watch Dragonwaifu Season 3 on repeat. Eventually, I began spending all of my paychecks on anime figurines and katanas.
Thankfully, a sagacious IE member took note and intervened. And were it not for his guidance, I would have likely overdosed on manga by now. This individual recommended that I attend anime rehab, where I would be able to break the addiction for good. I agreed.
That individual’s name is @Deleted User, and I have nominated him to be my successor. You might be thinking to yourself at this point, “But Patrick! How could a dog run Identity Evropa?! Is he really going to keep those goggles on the whole time?! Bad optics!” So while I understand that you all might have reservations about your new Executive Director, I would remind you that were it not for @Deleted User, I likely wouldn’t be here.
Happy April Fool’s, everyone. I hope you’re having a great weekend!
I want someone to make me a great flyer with the following:
Info on the caravan
Facts on illegal immigration (fiscal impact, 3/4 of illegals using fake socials, etc.)
What to do -- call white house with number
Let’s make this happen.
Here's the properly sized flyer. Let's print these out and get them up tomorrow. As I said earlier, the first three people to flyer and post pictures in <#359086234175275010> (like we normally do) will get prizes.
It was announced that Mexico will be breaking up the caravan. Let's hold off on these flyers until we're given evidence that this isn't the case. @everyone
Alright, we’ve been given that evidence. Let’s put those flyers up!
As many of you already know, we have a very promising action coming up later this month that will focus on the South African situation. **This event will likely be even bigger and better than the Nashville demonstration** for a number of reasons.
Many of you are already attending the action. But for those who are not, **I would like you to please consider donating to help make this happen.** We're spending between around $1000 on lodging, materials, transportation (to and from the action), etc. I'd also like to be able to feed our activists, who will be spending their own money on this as well.
If you're interested in pitching in, **please send your donation to http://paypal.me/MiguelRosalesNV with a note designating it for the SA action.**
Thanks! I'm looking forward to this event -- it's going to be our best yet.
Fireside tomorrow at 8:30 PM EDT. See you all there!
We’re very pleased to showcase a webinar series about a variety of topics within professional political activism. Want to hear professional debate tactics and learn how to anticipate your opponent? Do you want to learn the considerations that go into propaganda design? Want to see what it takes to plan a successful event? The first topic will be hosted by a very special guest and new member to IE on a private youtube stream at **7 PM Eastern on Tuesday, April 10th.** Whether you’re a public IE activist or only a member in secret but want to find other ways to help the cause, this knowledge is valuable, and it’s only being provided to IE members.
Stay tuned for future updates and the stream next Tuesday. See you there!
REMINDER: Buy a tank top to support our legal defense! Only four days left.
The fireside will start in 15 minutes. See you all there! @everyone
The fireside is starting now! @everyone
From our friends at American Renaissance:
We'd like to offer a special rate to IE members for the AR conference. The IE rate would be $150, compared to the regular rate of $225. American Renaissance also offers a special student rate. The rate is available to new registrants only (in other words, it's not available retroactively).
Anyone who wishes to take advantage of either the student rate or the IE rate can book with the AmRen office directly at 703-716-0900 any time from 9 - 5, Eastern.
Sadly, custom ink has shutdown our fundraiser and has refunded everyone. Other IE merch and t shirts are available in <#405701541735956512>. Apologies for the inconvenience. @everyone
@everyone Reminder that if you pay dues by bitcoin to our wallet, DM me to say so. I'm unable to credit you otherwise.
Also, let's give it up for our March member of the month, @Matthias, for planning our first conference! @everyone
@everyone A new channel has been added, <#432033043146866690>. Its purpose is self-evident in the name. Using my advanced server admin skills and unusually high verbal IQ, I was also able to wrangle a net reduction in the number of channels by 2. Those of you with limited vertical screen space can thank me later.
@everyone Friendly reminder that if you pay anything via PayPal, mark the payment as to "friends and family" rather than for "goods and services." The latter can bring about greater identity verification requirements for our account.
@everyone Reminder - Tomorrow (Tuesday) at 7 Eastern, Identity Evropa is hosting our first private online webinar available only to members! A new member who has spent years in professional politics and activism development will be delivering a presentation and taking a brief Q and A afterwards.
A private link will be distributed to membership a few minutes before the presentation.
I encourage everyone to set this time aside, especially if you are an activist!
@everyone Last November, IE activists in Southern California spoke at a major university and became a resounding success. 5 activists spoke to approximately 50 attendees from all around the area. Speeches spanned the gambit; from identarian coming-of-age stories to demographic statistics and population trends. Attendees made the event that much better by asking thoughtful and genuine questions.
After the lecture hall was cleaned and our equipment was packed, everyone migrated to local burger joint that had hipster undertones. There old friends mingled and new folks made lasting connections.
This May, IE Southern California is going to replicate last year's success. We're going to have new speakers, new topics, and a new venue! We plan on 80 people attending this time around and you should consider being one them! I cannot tell you too much; only that I will be speaking at the event which will take place in May. All the details due to operational security can't be announced just yet, but you should reach out to @PMT - CA who can help you plan coming out to this event!
A very special guest and new member to IE is hosting a private livestream only available to members tonight in one hour at 7 PM Eastern. He has spent years in professional politics and activism development. Don’t miss out!
@everyone here is the youtube link for Identity Evropa's very first webinar. Make yourselves comfortable and we will begin in just a few minutes.
No fireside tonight, as I’m in a different time zone and have to be up early tomorrow to return home.
in light of Patrick's absence, we will be having a 'serverside hangout' tonight instead of the more formally structured fireside.
Some of the other coordinators and myself will bring everyone up to speed on activism and recent events in IE, as well as talking about our very exciting action in DC a week from Saturday!
This will be very brief, we will do a quick Q and A and then open things up so people can mingle and chat within our community.
See you all there!
(oops forgot to mention) 8:30 EDT, as always.
@everyone "Serverside Hangout" will be starting in ~10 minutes!
As of early Friday morning, I'm home from Europe. I want to thank @Matthias and @Deleted User for holding down the fort while I was busy covering two events for Red Ice. I'd also like to thank Alex for hosting what I've heard was a resoundingly successful webinar.
We'll be doing a fireside this Wednesday at 8 PM EDT as usual. And then next weekend, we'll be doing our SA demonstration. If you're interested in chipping in to help make the event happen, you can do so here: http://paypal.me/MiguelRosalesNV (make sure to earmark your contribution).
The following weekend, I, and many others in IE, will be at AmRen. I'll be giving a brief presentation about Identity Evropa, and I'm sure that we'll be able to find a number of new recruits at the conference. Remember, everyone in IE is expected to bring in five people before the end of the year!
While traveling abroad, I read an interesting article from *Social Matter* that I'd like share with you all. It's a bit long, but it offers an interesting perspective on how to go about installing a new political class -- one that does not entail doing bad things to your local mailman. (https://www.socialmatter.net/2018/04/09/beyond-economic-political-class-traits/)
Anyways, I just wanted to touch base because I've been fairly quiet in here for the past week. I hope you're having a good weekend, and I'll see you all on Wednesday!
Let's all thank @FACINEMA for making the most of the video footage he was given. Unfortunately, the audio was messed up for some of it, but it turned out nicely nonetheless!
Although IE is an explicitly lawful, non-violent organization, it's important to remember that you must **never talk to police**.
This video -- a classic -- explains why.
SoCal delivered yet another phenomenal action. Well done!
More great activism, this time from the guys in North Atlantic. Fantastic!
There's a rumor circulating that our Discord servers are going to be "searched" due to the Charlottesville lawsuit. This isn't the case.
A few members freaked out over this and left all IE servers without even verifying that this is true. As always, I'm willing to change my mind in light of new evidence, but I'm in contact with our attorney and fully aware of what's happening in our legal battle, and you all have nothing to worry about.
This is the last call on the server for the South Africa action in Washington DC! The flash demonstration is this coming weekend. Soon, we are going to clear the server of anyone who has not confirmed and we will release the event location later this week.
If you want to support the action but can’t attend, consider donating (<#388558559752880139>) to offset the costs of the activist supplies, airbnb, and potentially even some food for the dozens of activists coming out. Thank you!
By now, many of you have seen the *Daily Stormer* article regarding Discord. I have a few things to say on the subject, but I want to first remind everyone to remain calm and approach this with a level head.
1. Many of the Discord servers that have been leaked in recent months -- TWP and PF in particular -- have likely had bad opsec. In the case of TWP, **they had an open Discord invite on their website.** IE also doesn't discuss illegal or unethical behavior -- nor do we engage in it -- so leaks from our Discord would be less damning.
2. Anglin is incorrect about the Charlottesville server being secure, assuming he's referring to the same one I'm thinking of. Invites were handed out in a careless manner, and everyone knew the server was compromised but chose to continue using it anyway for some reason. (I had no part in this, for the record, as I did not plan the event.)
3. The fact that the SPLC is working with Discord in some unspecified capacity is cause for concern, although I think people are blowing this out of proportion. The idea that you're going to have your life ruined because you posted anonymously in a Discord server seems really insane to me -- fearmongering at its worst. The TWP server was leaked, and yet there were, to my knowledge, no mass doxings.
4. With that said, migrating to another platform is likely a good decision in the long run. We're looking into alternatives right now. However, keep in mind that **if other groups being using platform X -- yet still employ sloppy opsec -- people could start freaking out about platform X being compromised** and whatnot. At some point, people will have to accept responsibility for poor opsec practices.
5. As previously stated, keep a level head. Discord deleted our original server after Charlottesville, and yet no one was doxed, nothing was leaked, etc.
We'll be talking more about this tonight at the fireside. 8:30 PM EDT. See you all there!
We’ll get started shortly. @everyone
@everyone Fireside chat RIGHT NOW! Get in general voice!
@everyone It isn't funny. It is incredibly rude to hotmic in the middle of our weekly meeting. You are interrupting the leader of IE in the middle of his address to the general membership. It takes two seconds to press the mute button in Discord. Please do it.
I would like to remind @everyone that every time you violate the rules, you put our server in jeopardy. If the server ever gets deleted, as our first one did, do you want to have to wonder if it was because of you? It is wrong to put your community at risk for your personal gratification. Familiarize yourself with the <#405211244023382016> and adhere to them with every post. It's the only right thing to do.
