May be good to attempt creating sort of closed non profit groups in various states with the goal of being prepared for disasters. All this stuff, medical, survival, self defense, and so on is important for everyone and more shit can happen to someone than just regular tyranny.

Isn't that the point? Newsflash the "normies" never will. I've been in this movement over 10 years whether conservative 3pers, militia I helped organize one of the largest FB gatherings of "patriotic" americans through a page called "The DC Clothesline" on FB before they turned total Alex Jones. The patriot Teams (broken up by zones example Mi, OH, IN) were a success in getting about 500k pissed off "boomers", Revolutionaries (aka boog bois) etc. It always goes the same way. We get pissed off stockpile shit talk shit and die old with an Arsenal like my grandfather. How can we make this different?

No the point is to put out good optics.. no we wont win over everyone but alienating the ones that are center dosent help the cause.. neither does giving the media more ammunition like this to paint us as crased lunatics.. like with the guy that drove around " hunting " cops.. we should have talked him down.. or at the very least put out a public statement say he was not part of our ideals.. if you are here just to shoot cops you are in the wrong place imo. We should be promoting LIBERTY AND FREEDOM not alot cops and everyone we dont agree with. We are an speedos nation. The government has too much power and overreach with no concern to humal life..

So crazy thought, but the idea of a well organized protest that we use to get our message out? And I dont mean a bunch of us out in full kit, or even camo that gets the MSM to dismiss us out of hand, I mean buisness casual, CC if you'd like, and do it when and where the cameras are going to be anyway. I mean in my state the governor and the mayor have daily press conferences that if say 100 peaceful people showed up to unannounced with a statement to make, that might get the ball rolling in terms of putting our message out
Message permalink: 704742265012224062
Lets use the current "crisis" and politician's ego against them. Its not like they're gonna stop doing there daily show and tell and most people have that crap on if for nothing else than as background noise lol
Message permalink: 704742898410979448
I agree with Madison. It’s great we’re all willing to go out in full kit. But once we do that we become a meme to all the people on the left that paint us as the right. Sometimes we need a different approach to get our message out

Of course! I’m not saying get rid of the goons! Diplomatic methods only work for so long and so much. My problem is the picture that gets painted of us right now especially with the virus going on. It gives the media ammo to make us look like the conservatives crying for a haircut. We have a powerful message that a lot of people relate too but sometimes they see a bunch of armed men and assume “radical right group”

The point is that not many look deep enough into our message to see past certain views such as legalization of drugs and firearm ownership
Message permalink: 704747683310731375
While I agree, I think our immediate goal should be just getting people to look into the movement. The more that they look and engage, and the more we show what we're really like, how we're looking not for a fight that we just want to be left alone by the government, the better.

> we require the "goons" as a deterrent to government agencies trying to push us out and snuff out our protests > but we also need the CCW well dressed groomed and well spoken gentlemen to engage with media and statemen @Dejectedhook04 So how has that worked so far... has having goon go out in full kit made any impact on any legislation at all. All it does is make us look like bullies. And get us called racist
Message permalink: 704750292817674371
Because the way it works is we get the people involved with us. They realize they are us, and as we grow, the people who can make things happen are going to be with us. The founders were just some guys meeting and bitching about how the British sucked. And then enough of the kind of people who make changes happen were bitching with them and then they went about MAKING the changes. Seems to me that if it worked for them, it can work for us

Message permalink: 704751901203234886
@VLGhost I honestly think that no matter what we do these days, someone trying to score political points are going to call us racist anyway. I don't really care if people call us that so long as we actually aren't racist. I personally don't give a flying fuck what color someone is or what religion they do or don't subscribe to, what matters to me is they agree to put personal liberties first and foremost.

Like the dude that got arrested at a protest recently. He was a chp holder. Noone stepped up to stop the police from arresting him. We just look like a bunch of larpers. We have to start protecting each other

Message permalink: 704753511514112020
i see waht @VLGhost is saying aswell as @Dejectedhook04 ..nobody wants to make the move because the end outcome is so uncertain.if a cop starts to arrest one of us out of a group..thats grounds for execution...ask Lemp, but nobody knows if the rest will arise to the call.and if they do then what,we dont have a solid objective atm,more of a rough draft if you will,how would we move foward when we do have a green light,these are the issues that need resolved before we do make a power play
Message permalink: 704753825671807066
Exactly. I appreciate any ideas or input from anyone but if you show up at an event or protest don't be there unless you realize and are ok with taking reasoned action that may nkt end well

Don't be looking for violence and make Damn sure the media, not live-stream, but the actual media is there. Lets make sure that if its gonna go south, then its gonna get out. Guys in kit getting shot won't make the news but guys in button downs who don't seem all that bad getting shot will get coverage. But again, the idea is not having that happen. We protest, make a single statement on the matter of liberty then go.

So anyway, what if we get a few guys on camera. Respectable dudes not kitted out. Make a "boog news network" reporting on the verifiable instances of individual liberties being trampled? Due to human nature the majority of viable reports will probably have minority victims, so if we simply report on those that will help defeat the false racism claims that will undoubtedly come. We can also have segments with "tactical Tony" or farmer Frank or whatever to go over some instructional self sufficiency material
