Message from TiborSzalasi-MI in Charlottesville 2.0 #antifa_watch
very good speaker too
I'm a Yankee from MI and there are almost as many confederate flags flying in front of houses in my home town as there are american flags
I will be coming with a fairly large contingent of Texas Daily Strormer Book Clubs, Vanguard Texas, and others. We'll be carrying Confederate fl;ags, and since we're from Texas we'll also be sporting some of the more aggressive historical Texas flags, like the Bloody Arm Banner, to represent. We are also Daily Stormer, so we'll be representing that as well with some of our banners and signs etc. I think there is room here for every kind of flag, but the Confederate flags will and should be the overriding thing. That said, I'm not running anything here, this is just my opinion and our plans.
@WhiteTrash No, I had one guest who's sister died and then the second guest had technical issues so no show this week.
damn that sucks azzmador
about the sister...i can go without the show
Yeah, I would have done one by myself but those take more prep time and the show was late by the time Irealized my secoind guest was not set up to do a podcast.
I've made sure that I have a guest forthis week.
But the thing about these flags is -the Confederate flag is an absolute necessity, and here's why:
You can't really just have an event where you say "we're White & we're here!" That's been done over and over and the results are always underwhelming. There has to be an event you are protesting, or a protest you are counterprotesting, or the general public just thinks "wtf?" Campus speeches seem to be the only exception to this.
This event was triggered originally by the attempt to remove Lee's statue, and people understand that.
It's a concept they can wrap their minds around, the destruction of their history and the denigration of their ancestors.
And the Confederate flag is emblematic of this particular struggle.
You have to think about these things on an archetypal level. That's where meme magic comes from.
plus that fact that's its an internationally recognized symbol will help resonate with other WN movements worldwide, when they see us Southerners take our stand along side sympathetic domestic groups
My fear is that by using the confederate flag you make the issue that we are rallying against only a southern issue. If that clarifies my opinion
the confederate flag and cause has mass appeal even among northerners
because everyone knows northern heroes are next
rural northerners have more in common with rural southerners than they do with northern urbanites
and they know it
It is the Southern Symbols that are under attack right now. They'll be moving onto the yankee ones in due time.
@crockett How does the confederate flag relay the message to the northerners that they are next?
I'm not sure I'm tracking.
Instead of using a southern identitarian flag, focus on using symbols that have the ability to resonate with a larger demographic.
The CBF is a big fuck you to the establishment if that's what you mean.
I understand where you're coming from, but it all started in Charlottesville with the Confederate Memorials.
That is just what I argue, but I understand the sentiment not being well accepted among the die hard southerners here. Nonetheless, it's a southern rally and I respect it either way.
Personally I'll be carrying the SN Flag.
I'm from Michigan and I think counter signaling Confederate flags is asinine.
Never mind the fact that we have an entire channel for this topic... lol
With almost 20 million Jews in the world what else would you ever need to countersignal?
Where I come from there's a confederate flag on almost every car, flying from almost every house, and on shirts. It's our heritage, don't countersignal just because it's not yours or you don't understand it.
@⚡Clark⚡ The only way your continuing down this path is productive is if it were somehow possible you might have some infleunce regarding this issue, and you won't, so just drop it bro.
That's good advice, you should take it. Your logic isn't really logic, and you're gonna piss people off.
This is a Southern event being held to protect Southern Heritage, and you're just trying to rationalize your desire to make it about your own thing.
"die hard southerners"
bro a number of us are from MI and are in full support of it
