@patron Saint of EATIN Cops will either be giant pushovers and will intervene in big fights, or will practically treat us as if we were rioting.

2018-02-08 14:28:43 UTC  

Doubling down is probably the right tactic here. Show strength

2018-02-08 15:39:49 UTC  

I don't feel a lot of fear with the TWP guys

2018-02-08 15:40:07 UTC  

We have the best people

@patron Saint of EATIN

Where have u seen that about the cops standing down?

I would be very surprised if that happens...

Im gonna be speaking with my contacts in KPD today, to make sure they do their jobs.

2018-02-08 20:09:42 UTC  

I haven't seen it anywhere, just what I've heard from my husband and from Heimbach. @John Mosby

2018-02-08 20:10:08 UTC  

I just don't want it to devolve into a brewhaha since we can't have firearms on campus, I assume. Or can we?

2018-02-08 20:10:54 UTC  

Probably not

2018-02-08 20:10:59 UTC  

Almost definitely not

2018-02-08 20:11:01 UTC  


2018-02-08 20:11:53 UTC  

I couldn't remember what states had passed campus carry as of yet, although even that could apply to students and staff only.

2018-02-08 20:12:23 UTC  

I spent the 9 months I was pregnant being extremely out of touch with everything outside my house because aspergers and estrogen don't mix well.

2018-02-08 20:14:01 UTC  


2018-02-08 20:25:44 UTC  

No weapons on campus, at all...

2018-02-08 20:25:59 UTC  

Welp, they aren't blocking us, but they might mess with our schedule...

2018-02-08 20:27:06 UTC  

This is good news:

"Heimbach’s group is paying a standard rental fee for the room as any other group would. The university will cover any costs associated with providing the services of the UT Police Department."

2018-02-08 20:29:34 UTC  


"The safety of our campus community and visitors is the top priority of the UT Police Department and the department is preparing for this event. They oversee security for more than 250 campus events each year."

2018-02-08 20:34:18 UTC  

Thank God for good news. I've been praying for good fortune for all of this crazy stuff going on

2018-02-08 20:34:26 UTC  

Good to see those prayers answered

2018-02-08 20:34:58 UTC  

Oooh we could do a literal Rock Against Communism

2018-02-08 20:35:22 UTC  


2018-02-08 20:35:48 UTC  


With a blood banner done with a stencil.

2018-02-08 20:36:02 UTC  

RAC with an actual R

2018-02-08 20:46:00 UTC  

They are giving us a good list of names

2018-02-08 20:50:45 UTC

2018-02-08 20:50:53 UTC  

This might be important...

2018-02-08 20:52:01 UTC  

NLG won't help us

2018-02-08 20:52:34 UTC  

I didn't expect them to

2018-02-08 20:52:42 UTC  

Quite the opposite actually

2018-02-08 20:53:12 UTC  

NLG legal observers were present in Murfreesboro when we were in Tennessee

2018-02-08 20:53:19 UTC  

I smell a setup

2018-02-08 21:32:43 UTC  

What if we had people record us standing in rank and file being attacked, holding ground not hitting back?

2018-02-08 21:32:58 UTC  

Would be good PR or make us look weak?

2018-02-08 21:33:02 UTC  

Taking hits?

2018-02-08 21:35:13 UTC  

Probably wouldn't work

2018-02-08 21:35:30 UTC  

It worked for the darkies in the 60's because media was on their side e

2018-02-08 21:35:49 UTC  

The story for us would be "brave progs beat up Nazis"

2018-02-08 22:24:43 UTC  

Keep in mind that this is a privately held event, with access only being granted to those with tickets.

They wont really be able to attack us, unless it is when we enter the building...that probably wont happen though, cuz we will be using the back entrance.

Im sure they will have plenty of cops there with our ushers who are taking the tickets, so that doesnt leave them much of an opportunity to attack us.
