Message from Reinhard Wolff in Nice Respectable People Group #announcements
The purpose of IE Literature Club is not only to get our people reading, but to get our people to read things that are beneficial to them.
You will find a variety of literature posted here that will not only help you further your learning in politics, but help you with your finances, personal skills, relationships, health, and other personal interests.
How to use -
If you have a book you'd like to recommend and it's not in violation of IE's national rules, follow these steps-
1) Locate the category.
2) Locate the specific channel within the category.
3) Post book name and author name (maybe a small summary on why you're suggesting it.)
4) Post a picture of the cover of the book.
TIR stands for Today I Read - post anything new you might have learned today.
IE Reading List is a highly suggested list provided by leadership (unfinished.)
Our North Atlantic guys -- including @Thomas West (Hapa Spy) -- did some charity work over the weekend. Well done!
I want to see more of this in the future. Make it happen!
As many of you already know, our PA coordinator @Deleted User was arrested in Charlottesville. Between the court case (which he won, thankfully) and two activism-related, non-speeding tickets, Ian was set back $1100. This doesn’t include money he has spent on materials, gas, etc. while doing activism.
Ian posted this on his regional server, but I think we should all pitch in to help him out. Activism does entail risks, and when things go bad we can’t leave our guys hanging.
**I’m donating $25, and I hope everyone can at the very least match me.** paypal.me/EggPillEnterprises
(I have made Ian promise not to spend the money on anime figurines or Minecraft swords.)
Let's give it up for @Joe-MN, @Envian, and the rest of the MN chapter (along with our activism coordinators) for another great memorial!
Let's send this to as many MN politicians and news outlets as possible. Get to work @everyone!
I want to really stress the importance of sending this to local media etc. Joe has compiled a list in <#359892798071373824>.
If you have free time, please help boost this action.

I hope 2018 is off to a great start for all of you. Let’s make this a year to remember by focusing on progress -- both for ourselves and for the organization as a whole.
One of our main goals for 2018 is to recruit *at least* 5000 members. While this might seem quite ambitious, it can be easily achieved so long as each of us recruits at least five new members. I’m currently working on recruiting four interested individuals, so I’m hoping to hit five before the end of the month!
We’ll be sending out the second dues warning for members who have paid in the past, but are not up to date on their dues. Toward the end of the month, we will begin removing members for non-payment. If you’re behind on dues, please make up for past dues as well. To check the status of your dues, please go to https://www.identityevropa.com/login.
And, as usual, we’ll be doing our weekly fireside chat tomorrow at 8 PM EST. See you all there!
Fireside chat tonight at 8:00 PM EST!
We're going to go over our goals and plans for 2018, among other things. I hope to see you all there!
We're about go get started! Head over to <#358403210618339338> voice for our weekly fireside chat. @everyone
Let’s give it up for our TN and GA chapters, which recently did a great action in Memphis!
Just a reminder, @everyone:
Official IE servers are for IE members only. Please don't give out links to, say, the fitness or lit servers to your non-IE friends. Get them to join instead!
Please check to make sure you're up to date on your dues. IE can't function without them, and there's still an unfortunately high percentage of IE members -- some of whom are very active on this server and others -- who have never paid, or are many months behind.
With that said, I hope you all are having a productive, enjoyable weekend.
Addendum: I forgot to add that you can check your dues by logging into https://www.identityevropa.com/login and going to "my info" at the top.
ALSO: Please remember to provide some information regarding your info on file for IE so we know who you are.
Dues are 10 a month, 55 for 6 months, or 100 for a year.
The IE Literature Club server had to be secured. If the only channel you can view is "receiving", please message @CarletonJ directly and he will get you full access. @everyone
@Matthias and @Deleted User created a nice memorial today in DC! Make sure to retweet this.
One thing I will say, though, is that we should hold off on memorials for a little while, given how many we've done in the past month. Variety is key.
I’m happy to announce the launch of our patron program!
According to the results of the survey we did in December, over 55% of IE members are interested in contributing more financially to our organization. In fact, a number of people messaged me last week to let me know that they’re interested in doing so.
The tiers for our patron program are as follows:
**Supporter** - $50 per month
**Sponsor** - $150 per month
**Benefactor** - $300 or more per month
All patrons will be granted a special Discord role in the national server and access to our Patrons Lounge server, which will also include board members and perhaps a few coordinators. This means that as a patron, you will have an open line of communication to the board, and will be able to learn about our upcoming plans for Identity Evropa. You’ll also be able to make suggestions, help us brainstorm, provide constructive criticism, etc.
We also intend to host patron-only events from time to time. For example, we want to incorporate something for patrons at the upcoming IE retreat in March.
Additional benefits for the various tiers will be announced as the program develops.
If you’re able and willing, please consider becoming an IE patron. Funding is a crucial aspect of most human undertakings, and while I’ve never really enjoyed asking for money, I wouldn’t be doing my job as a CEO if I wasn’t helping our organization grow.
Please message me with the tier you’re interested in, and we’ll get you set up in the Patron Lounge.
Let’s make 2018 a year to remember!
I’d like to remind you all that we now have a patron program (see above). We’ve already added over a dozen people to it in under 24 hours, so by all appearances the program is off to a great start!
We’ve recently made a MakerSupport, which offers both one-time donations and recurring options. We’ll see how long this lasts, though.
Also, Hatreon is down indefinitely. The last payout we received from them was in early November, so if you pledged over there, I’d recommend cancelling it and contributing to the legal defense via PayPal, MakerSupport, or mail.
It’s time to take things to the next level. Let’s make 2018 a year to remember!
Fireside chat tonight at 8 PM EST! See you all there.
@everyone Fireside chat! Get in here now! Don't miss elevator music nationalism!
I did an interview with Brittany Pettibone—let’s spread this around!
If you -- meaning IE members -- are having a baby, please let us know. I think it’d be great for us to start a tradition of buying gifts for new parents within the organization.
Please message me if you haven't been added to your state server.
Also, we'll be doing our fireside chat tonight at 8 PM EST as usual. I hope to see you all there!
Many of you have reached out to let me know that you're expecting a baby soon.
Please let me know the best way for us to contribute: Amazon wishlist, Gofundme, etc.
Most of you have likely seen the articles on the LOS leaks. If you haven’t, basically LOS had a list -- allegedly their membership list -- leaked. Now, I’m hearing that the list in question was just an email list, and most of the people on there weren’t LOS members, but I can’t say for sure.
While it’s understandable for you all to be concerned that something similar could happen to IE, I want to assure you that the chances are very, very slim. We don’t have a “list” in the form of a spreadsheet that someone can just download and distribute. That would be really foolish. Instead, we have a digital roster that roughly five people have access to. This means that even coordinators do not have access to the roster -- and again, it’s not something you can just download.
If you’re still concerned, we will happily change your information on the roster -- just shoot @Matthias a DM with the alias and new email you’d like to use. Since day one, we've allowed people to use an alias and pay dues via cash or money order.
I’m looking forward to speaking with you all at the fireside tonight!
I’d like to remind you all that we recently launched a patron program. This is a great way to help support the organization -- particularly while we’re in the midst of the post-Charlottesville lawsuit, which is costing us quite a bit per month.
The tiers for our patron program are:
Supporter - $50 per month
Sponsor - $150 per month
Benefactor - $300 or more per month
Becoming a patron will grant you access to the Patrons Lounge server, where you’ll be able to have a more open line of communication with the me, the board, and the activism coordinators. Other perks will be added as the program is further developed.
If you’re interested in becoming a patron, please shoot @Matthias a DM.
Fireside tonight at 8 PM EST! See you all there.
Let's give it up for our Southern California chapter, which recently did another spectacular beach clean up! Well done.
@everyone Fireside starting in 2 mins! Get in general voice!
Good morning, @everyone!
I just added @Deleted User as our legal coordinator in <#388558559752880139>. He's been doing a superb job for months, so feel free to direct all legal questions his way.
Also, here is an interesting article provided by @Nick Anderson - IL on political activity and employment:
Have a great day!
Our Florida chapter did an excellent cemetary clean up a few days ago. Great work! Let's keep showing America that we're capable of creating positive change.
@cc and @Matthias pulled off a very nice action on short notice last night. Well done!
I hope your week is off to a great start!
We're going to be announcing more information regarding the conference within a few days, so keep an eye out for that.
Also, I just wrote an article pertaining to activism and metapolitics. Check it out:
@everyone Here is a good one-liner to summarize all our server rules and the basis for our moderation strategy: Before hitting enter, consider if your post could be used against you or the organization by our adversaries in a completely out-of-context representation where they are demonstrating that IE is something that we know we are not.
Some of you alerted me to Hunter Wallace's article regarding my recent comments.
Here's my response:
I hope you're all having a great Tuesday. Fireside tomorrow evening as usual!
Head over to <#405701541735956512> if you're interested in buying some IE merch! We'll be expanding this in the upcoming months.
Also, I wrote another response to Hunter Wallace, for those who are interested:
Fireside chat tonight at 8 PM EST as usual.
