This is C (the TWP Major of TN).
Looking forward to seeing y'all in Shelbyville!
I saw that name suggestions were wanted for the new Regions.
What about: "The Bushwackers" or "The Volunteers" for Region 4?
Bushwhackers sounds great
I've been going through some of the old conversations, and apparently a SW guy said my actions at the SF conference were "niggerish" and "autistic". Also, according to him, "Billy made the whole thing possible".
I would just like to clarify some things
1. TWP members were in charge of security, before Don dropped the ball. When he did drop the event, it was TWP who picked it up (not Billy).
2. Our members were there Friday, with a couple arriving on Sat (I saw a SW guy allege we didn't show until Sat).
3. Billy was the one who fucked up and leaked the location to antifa (antifa told the news that they got the location from a mass email Billy sent), so he didn;t "save the day", he had to clean up his own mess.
4. TWP was in charge of security of the event.
5. TWP set the speaker schedule.
That all being said, Billy blindsided us by getting the Robbs to take the stage, and we were outside when Tom started talking shit. One of our members came outside and told us that Tom Robb was maligning Matt on stage. We immediately started chanting "Heimbach, Heimbach!" and proceeded to go inside to shut it down. ShieldWall members blocked the door and made it quite clear that there would be a fight, if we shut it down (the building was in Billy's name and the cops were right there, so it would have been our members arrested for the fight, not SWs). We were over security, so this was obviously a power play on SW's part. After that situation arose, we were making phone calls and trying to decide what to do. Mind, this whole thing caught us completely off-guard, and there wasn't much to do, without causing a ruckus. We ended up going inside to make an official statement, but Tom started talking shit again, so I flipped out, at that point, and started yelling at him, saying that the conference was our event, and he had no place running his mouth (I NEVER threatened him, nor got in his face). SW guys jumped up and it turned into a screaming match between us and SW.
What I don't think SW counted on is LS having our backs the way they did. Hell, every LS member there was right on point, backing us up (I even had a couple that were begging to just start a brawl right there and wreck SW...something that would have easily been accomplished, but we still would have been arrested, as the building was in Billy's name).
Myself and the LS members went back to my house, after the event, and talked about things...for the sake of "unity" we will not start a spat with SW or Billy, but we will never work so closely with them again (at least as far as our local chapters go).
I will admit that I was incredibly disappointed with how things went. I wanted to just shut it down, even if that meant a fight, but I didn't want any arrests, or the horrible optics said arrests would cause. That being said, I can't ever think of a time of being so insulted and not fighting about it...I tried to do what was best for the event and our members present, but perhaps I made the wrong decision. I'll leave that for others to decide (I offered Heimbach my resignation as TN's Major, over the fiasco).
That all being said, I still think the event was a success for 4 major reasons.
1st. The event went off without a public hitch, with TWP getting A LOT of publicity (Matt was even spotted there).
2nd. I have been getting messages from SF boomers wanting to donate money to TWP (so we must have made a good impression on some).
3rd. NF picked up a few new members.
4th. The argument showed WN 1.0 that NF is a real alliance, and that our orgs have each other's backs. SW and Billy are playing real nice with us, now; mostly because all the NF guys were ready to throw down over Matt being insulted, imo. We showed a sense of unity that is not commonly known in WN 1.0 circles.
I wrote an after action report, which is nice to everyone at the conference (the Robbs are never mentioned). I didn't put SW on blast, for the sake of "unity", but I did make it perfectly clear that the conference was a TWP event, and that we will be taking the event for a NF one, in the future. Feel free to read it here:

@Dr.Cocopuff - Admin#3889
I think we're gonna be taking a lot of people from other groups soon
I think NF will be the Movement 3 years from now...the rest (aside from the Alt-Lite cucks) will just be little 5 man crews.
I got a PM from a guy in another group who can't technically march with TWP but he and like 8 others are wanting to come to Shelbyville anyways, albeit independantly and lo-key
That's a good start.
actually, I think he's gonna message you
He's not sure what the deal is as far as coordination is concerned so I told him to add you on here
Ya, I think he already messaged me.
I'll have to talk to my bro in LS, to get all the info he is needing.
Trying to get a headcount (for food and gear) for the training session in Knoxville next weekend.
Is anyone on here coming down for it?
Excellent article, C.
Anyone getting HTTP 500 errors on Fash Emporium?
Front page works fine, but when I go to My Account or the members only part it won't load
tried both open web and Tor
I just officially signed up, too
: 3 those goggles look snazzy. Really learned to appreciate helmets with visors during the last demo.
Looks like the site is back now. Isn't there some kind of members only forum thing? Or was that still under construction
It should be done very soon or is done and is being rolled out soon
Ok, wasn't sure if there was something else that
That I should have been able to see
Hey babe, wana come lay down with me?
This is for anyone attending the training session, in Knoxville, this weekend; if you have any of these items, please bring them:
Shields, boxing gloves/wraps/mouth guards, sleeping bag and/or blow up mattress, and (so long as you can legally do so) feel free to bring guns and ammo.
I'm working toward making it to Tennessee so I can do a little piping on the weekend of October 28th. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=toUaE60Kdoc
