Message from TylerHess in Nice Respectable People Group #general
@Koba I am sorry that you feel so strongly about Fields. What would you propose we do, realistically?
Stop being so holier than thou
To be fair, as a new guy, IE does seem to care a lot about it's members.
Idk, perhaps something as simple as not dehumanize & justify the extreme & preposterous conspiracy that the enemy is clearly engaging in against him. @Papa Pizzagate
I think Fields panicked because he was being attacked. I certainly think his trial is being used as a warning to the rest of us
@Flint That's only if you can convince them that antifa were the ones responsible.
>all these conversations rn
@Koba is right, though. There are many factors that come into play when deciding not to make a statement on an event like this
Utterly ice cold takes tonight.
A young kid panicked in a crowd and made a massive mistake. He is having an example made of him. It could have easily have been any one of us who, under bad judgement, took that wrong turn in Chatlottesville that day.
I'd be fine if the organization didn't do anything about fields. It would be cool if y'all had a less gay attitude about it though.
I was there and saw the chaos
Silence can be seen as lack of support. Even a public statement saying we can't comment on it bc we are in a lawsuit would put many at ease
It was a madhouse
So was Ian
Indeed, but everyone who came knew to walk out together.
Unfortunately he came alone.
But I will say that imo Fields is completely innocent, perhaps guilty of negligence at the very most, bad optics are weak evidence for establishing the express malice of first degree murder, many people commit murder and other crimes who are liberal or apolitical, and the vast majority of those with bad optics are not criminals although they do make me worry at times.
I also went to cville alone
It could have been me
But I also used my head
I’m pictured next to the guy. I personally still stand with him and felt that verdict Ike it was my own
I was on the front
I talk to a handful of guys that day who came alone. They were all kind of weirdos. If your in a racist 'fraternity' you are a bit of a weirdo. If any of you autists ended up in jail I would lament and not be a f*g about it
If blacks will excuse their most heinous of criminals despite how those same criminals terrorize their own communities I will speak up for the rights of an innocent white man when it is appropriate.
Oath keepers were pointing rifles at everyone
I think that there is an argument to be made on both sides.
@TylerHess Blacks will also disavow members who do bad things and they also have people saying "what an innocent young lad".
It's giving me adrenaline thinking about all of this and cville
I still have webms on my computer of nationalists marching and shouting "blood and soil". I was so proud
I miss how things were prior to UTR.
It would actually be beneficial to IE if a public statement was made regarding how we cannot comment on this due to an ongoing law suit.
I will have to find them
