If you plan to keep it in your pocket with a good password/encryption or whatever, fine. But if you plan to have it out, using it to document the event, make sure there's no way they can use it to get info on you or anyone else you're associated with.

@MadDimension is there a dress code for the friday night march?

2017-07-22 00:03:37 UTC  

>buying airsoft helmets

2017-07-22 00:03:40 UTC  


2017-07-22 01:18:05 UTC  

Yeah no I'll take my 9 dollar safer safety helmet over a 200 dollar airsoft one lol

2017-07-22 01:18:32 UTC  

A good idea is to bring a mouth guard.

2017-07-22 01:18:58 UTC  

I'm also thinking about bringing a CamelBak to keep hydrated. Anyone think that's a bad idea?

2017-07-22 03:14:22 UTC  

Well you shouldnt be at the rally

2017-07-22 03:53:32 UTC  

Airsoft helmets won't protect you as well as a safety helmet will. Plus they make you look edgy.

2017-07-22 03:53:54 UTC  

I also don't have 200 bucks to drop on a helmet.

2017-07-22 03:56:14 UTC  

@Trixie Dixie I think it's great that you are looking to be prepared but if things get violent the women need to get the fuck out of there, if they are even allowed to the rally part.
I know it sucks but the reality of it is that we become a liability as soon as things go sour. Even if you can hold your own the other men will be distracted by wanting to protect you. It's not safe for them if we split their focus like that.

2017-07-22 03:57:58 UTC  

(I hope that didn't come across harsh)

2017-07-22 03:58:54 UTC  

Yeah I personally do not purposefully get involved in any violence. I'd rather be prepared/safe just in case so I can at least make it out of there in one piece. @Athena Marie I got trapped in the middle of the violence of what happened at the march against sharia, and I tried to get out of it as soon as it happened. Got my foot stepped on pretty hard (some bad bruising), so I recommend wearing harder shoes.

Edited for a few words^

2017-07-22 04:01:13 UTC  

@Trixie Dixie what's your combat experience?

2017-07-22 04:01:28 UTC  

I completely agree with you though, I don't think the women should try and fight because it'd obviously be a distraction.

2017-07-22 04:02:47 UTC  

Women shouldn't be anywhere near the fight because that is a distraction.

2017-07-22 04:03:00 UTC  

We have NO place in a combat situation. EVER

2017-07-22 04:07:59 UTC  

I agree, I don't want to become involved in combat. That's not my place nor do I want to @Athena Marie I do want to wear some safety gear however because I realize that antifa can be complete animals. They've thrown broken bottles, rocks, piss, etc, and I'd much rather be proactive than to get a rock thrown at my head.

2017-07-22 04:08:41 UTC  

Not sure what came across in my post as me wanting to engage in combat, but I certainly don't.

2017-07-22 04:08:48 UTC  

I guess it's always smart to be prepared 😃

2017-07-22 04:09:09 UTC  

I probably misunderstood you

2017-07-22 04:09:53 UTC  

Agreed! The motto of the girl scouts. Once a girl scout, always a Girl Scout.

2017-07-22 04:10:35 UTC  

Except with their latest super liberal shit, not a big fan of that. 😒

2017-07-22 04:11:05 UTC  

Also @Americana - MD if you want to know feel free to PM me.

2017-07-22 04:11:21 UTC  


2017-07-22 04:11:27 UTC  

Stand by...

2017-07-22 12:46:29 UTC  

@Trixie Dixie go to a sporting goods store or amazon. A batting helmet is cheap af. I think mine was 30. Goggles fit perfectly with it on and helmet also covers ears which are a particularly sensitive place to get hit with anything

2017-07-22 13:25:45 UTC  

not to sound like a dick but i'm afraid of having women out there

2017-07-22 13:26:00 UTC  

i feel like if one gets hit or somethign i'm gonna go full niggerdeath on whoever did it and end up in jail

2017-07-22 13:26:24 UTC  

hopefully they stick to the back closer to statue and speakers and shit

2017-07-22 14:32:04 UTC  


2017-07-22 15:30:47 UTC  

Not just me i think others will defend our ladies too

2017-07-22 15:52:53 UTC  

Yeah, the women have to stay in the rear. We're not leftists, we don't have our women doing the fighting for us.

2017-07-22 15:53:55 UTC  

I'll have a big crew facing off with these people and the last thing we need to worry about is women and children.

2017-07-22 16:12:24 UTC  

Honestly, the best thing the women can do is stay away in general. Find some other productive means to support

2017-07-22 16:12:30 UTC  

There is a full weekend of events that are meant for family, kids and women. This is a multi organizational shit show with dozens more unnaffiliated and a thus a loose command structure. Battle lines will most certainly shift and be hectic. It would be better off for women not to be at lee park at all. It would be a liability to all of the men to have distracting noncombatants while dealing with what is potentially thousands of hostiles from 4 different directions. To say nothing of the fact that we will be attacked while in transit to vehicles

2017-07-22 16:12:46 UTC  


2017-07-22 16:13:10 UTC  

Can we pin that?

2017-07-22 16:13:13 UTC  

The less women that show up the better. It honestly helps us to not show up to lee park but come to the other events like the picnic.
