Message from sigruna14 in Nice Respectable People Group #announcements
@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.
Fireside will commence in five minutes. See you there! @everyone
Thanks again for showing up to the fireside. I’m looking forward to seeing you all in March!
Identity Evropa is always on the lookout for lawyers in the various states across the country with whom we can coordinate if and when the need arises. If you’re willing to help, please DM @Deleted User and let him know.
All that would be expected of you is, if @Deleted User reaches out to you with one of our members in your jurisdiction that has run into legal trouble or has legal questions, you be willing to chat with him/her.
We don’t expect you to take up official representation but, rather, to just be a point of contact in your state. Moreover, members will not contact you directly; you will hear from Will first and go from there. Finally, Will won’t share your name with anyone and doesn’t need your contact information outside of Discord.
Again, please DM @Deleted User if you’re willing to help out.
From @Johday - GA:
Attn: Hello, I am the editor-in-chief of the new online publication The Identitarian. This is an IE Board sponsored project. The publication needs writers, so I am appealing to IE members for their writing talents. We are looking to publish 3 - 6 articles a day. The publication really needs dedicated writers who can commit to writing articles on a weekly basis. We are going to cover current events, culture, history, philosophy, etc. This publication is going to speak for the Identitarian movement in the USA, so we need high quality writing. If you would like to be involved, send me a DM. If you have previous writing experience, please send two or three pieces.
You should now have received your invitations via email to our first national conference, Leading Our People Forward. I hope to see you all on March 9th and 10th!
Reminder: Do not share *any* information about the conference with people outside of IE! Thanks. @everyone
Also, we'll be including the list of speakers in the confirmation emails. Many big names! @everyone
Our guys in San Francisco just dropped a superb banner! Bravo!
Props to the guys (and lady, singular) in SoCal for a great action! Well done!
I’d like to remind you all that registration emails have been sent out for our upcoming conference in March! We anticipate that the conference will sell out, so be sure to sign up ASAP!
Keep in mind that the ticket price does not include lodging. Still, this will likely be the most inexpensive Identitarian conference you’ll ever attend!
Fireside tonight at 8 PM EST as usual. Look forward to speaking with you all there!
Also, here's the updated invitation.
Our PayPal was recently shut down. The new one is paypal.me/SvenBrigade. If you sent money to the old one for the conference, you're fine. We'll be using this PayPal for dues, donations, etc. as well until we get a payment processor, which should happen in February.
Fireside starts in fifteen minutes! @everyone
@everyone Fireside now; get in voice!!
@FACINEMA did a quick video based on the recent SF activism. Great job!
Let’s all congratulate @Deleted User, one of our finest activists, who tonight became a father. Congratulations!
Our good friend Nathan is still stuck in a court case regarding his civil disobedience at Charlottesville 2.0.
I'd like to encourage everyone to help him out. His lawyer is costing him around $1k per month, and the case could drag on for as long as a year.
Happy Friday! Have a great weekend.
