Message from Patrick MI in Operation Wolverine #general
there are already counter protester FB event pages
looks like they have about a hundo people saying they will go
but that number could be less or more
also, i dont think they plan on going into the event and screaming like in gainsville, they might. but so far all they have planned is marching from the diag to where it will be hosted to protest outside
There is no way you aren't going to be outnumbered at least 30-1. However, it's about cohesion, mobility, and proper engagement that can make all the difference.
they will probably have more people, but thats fine. the message is more for them then us.
Our precense there is to support Spencer, and those that are going to see him in good faith, it's also to show that we're willing and able to organize when the odds are less than amazing and we can handle ourselves professionally when confronted.
Now, as details come out we're going to have to make some solid decisions on tactics. I'm going to get us a link to NPI so I can help make those choices. We really need details as quickly as possible, though.
Any direct connections to Spencers folks?
we should form them if we havent already
if we can confirm the date place and time we can start planning immediatly
@Jelly MI We've worked with NPI before and all that. I will see what I can do.
@Thomas Ryan , should PF be the "Storm Troopers/Spencer body guard" for the event?
Yes, we definitely need to co-ordinate with Spencer and his planners
I'm sure we'll get at least 30, probably 40 participants
I doubt we need to be his security team.
We just need to be there to show support.
It would be good publicity though if "Patriot Front Stands as Spencers bodyguards"
Either way, if we are in uniform, people will recognize us.
The day in general will be a golden event to do a banner drop or postering run somewhere, that's where we'd get the most/best publicity
He won't need us as body guards dude. They have paid security team
We will either be in attendance to the speech building, as supporting audience, or outside protecting and interacting with attendees who are supportive. We will likely not be official security.
Would regular clothes be best for this? Then any videos would show an audience that's legitimately interested in what he has to say. Also we could shout down any hecklers. Let him speak!
I think regular clothes would be best
Regular clothes seems to be a good idea, though perhaps a subtle indicator of factions would be useful.
We need the media to get the impression that normal people are attending his events.
I'm dressing in normal clothes if I go
But thing is.. They might be normal clothes for women
Halter top nationalism
Yoga pants, Uggs, and an oversized U of M hoodie Chad gave me.
Haha we'll be looking sexy af
Especially your legs jelly
Hell fucking yeah
