Message from Goose in Nice Respectable People Group #general
Just needs to be recognizably American.
Maybe but red white and blue has the advantage of being meaningful to everyone whereas a teal triangle is also boring and conveys nothing to practically everyone
@Asatru Artist - MD It would be much easier to attract funding and humam capital if we rebranded. If we think that's optics cucking, we will always be a fringe group.
Changing the IE logo wouldn't get any of the Leftist outlets to stop calling us white supremacists.
they aren't concerned with media, they want more people
It would only end up confusing the normies and have boring civnats trying to get in our organization.
i just want the *right* people
I should mention, that Generation Identity uses a Greek symbol, with a Black/Yellow aesthetic, and they are doing **amazing** all over Europe
Because they carry themselves incredibly well, and prove the name slandering wrong
but in all seriousness, a rebrand doesn't have to be drastic.
for example, i've never been keen on the color teal and think red, white, and blue would have been better choices to catch the "pro-american" types
we'll only have sympathetic media attention when these outlets literally have no choice.
but to accept us and our ways
i guess if we can get a ton of civnat tier whites in to give us more capital to work with to spread our message, and leadership stays the course, its whatever...
parts of the organization's imagery could slowly be swapped out
Even if you compare our optics to those of GI, the latter uses an ancient, but bold color scheme with regal origins (black and gold), whereas notwithstanding my own fondness for our color scheme, it's kind of fashwave-esque, and therefore specific to a particular time and subculture.
@Asatru Artist - MD Why not have them just donate to us? <:teehee:381917632359563264>
but a rebrand shouldn't concern any members because the foundation and structure of the IE network will remain intact.
does putting on a new hat change who's wearing it?
@Bjorn - MD Our logo is also ancient, Germanic, and uses a nice, modern aesthetic tho
@Rabbidsith Tucker isn't cucked and Breitbart has a large following that could potentially support us
We need to maintain our own brand. That in itself has meaning and recognition
@Goose yes, the minute you put on a MAGA hat, you go full fasc, put on an antifa hat, you go full soy <:teehee:381917632359563264>
@Virgil Yeah but the rest of Fox is cucked and Breitbart isn't going to support us until we have a lot more power.
Agreed, but the lambda is far more well-known and recognizable, and right or wrong (wrong), Greco-Roman semiotics occupies a position of greater notability and prestige than Germanic, even in Germanic Europe, and Germany itself.
I'm afraid people will associate an "Explicitly American group wanting to defend it's borders and maintain a White majority" with another group. It's to easy to make the comparison if we were explicitly American
Rebranding would lose what name recognition we have, make our already printed stickers and flyers unusable, and seem like we gave up who we are to court civnats.
The only reason to rebrand is if we somehow lose the C-ville lawsuit, imo
@The Eternal Anglo Only if we develop our own unique lexicon, and insist that every word therein begin with the same consonant, lol.
I doubt that these people are going to give a shit until we have 10,000 members.
*the mainstream media
@Rabbidsith Right but the question is how do we get more power, by getting investors and capital. Which would be much easier if we had a name that was more marketable to the average American and potential investors.
they already give a sh*t and we have around 1000....
The face of us being a fraternity for European Americans, not only is that a great description of us, but it also negates any comparison people may want to make of us to nasty 1.0 organisations. It's very cunning and sly
@Virgil I agree that we need investors and capital. However, losing what little brand recognition we have isn't conducive to that end.
@Virgil Well most of our money is going to the Cvill lawsuit, but once that's done and over with, it's easy flying
Evropa is also American because LARPing as Romans is an American tradition dating back to the founding fathers
toga toga toga!
Like I said, I'm not married to any particular means. If you think about things from another perspective, Generation Identity was a pretty unprecedented brand, and required a healthy amount explanation itself. Even if we were to retain the same title, though, at bare minimum, the color scheme would probably have to evolve over time.
We're paying off a lawsuit **and** still doing huge events all around the Country, I'd say we're doing *just* fine on capital.
Monetary capital is not the only thing we need, social capital as well. Rebranding would make us lose one of the two essential buildings blocks we need to succeed to power.
