Shaping How Your Community Thinks: A Practical Guide

by Tom K.

Introduction

Whether you are new to White Nationalism or have been spreading the message for years, this guide is designed to offer ideas on how you can take your ideas and begin using them to shape reality.

We all recognize how overwhelming it can be to face the media/political/corporate machine that marginalizes our message and persecutes those who support White pride.  Under these conditions, we have found certain methods allow us to break out from this blockade, and allow us to present the observable truth and begin organizing people together to accomplish our shared objectives.

Please feel free to tailor the basic principles included within to your area and your specific regional flavor.  What works well in one region will not necessarily fit in another, and understanding the general beliefs of your people and the key institutional actors will shape your planning.

Our hope is this guide serves you well, and we encourage you to share freely and distribute.

Culture Comes First

While natural to look for politics for change as so many of the laws which shape our lives emerge from the government, it is worth remembering that politics is always downwind from culture.  Long before gay marriage was being pushed, people were marching in the streets and building networks to support the individuals and businesses who professed these beliefs.  We counted on our institutions to protect us, but we lost the political battle because we lost the cultural battle.

The modern culture currently stresses diversity at all costs.  People who parrot these lines really have no clue what they mean by saying such slogans, but they know there will be social approval and they’ll avoid the cost of being ostracized.  When you accept the limits of political correctness, you concede the cultural battlefield.  While tact matters greatly, this first concession is the one you must not make.

Never concede your core beliefs, and be sure to encourage others to share your own

Before you can think about networking with other groups, unless you intend to be a spy for all that you do, you need to put real thought into how you can authentically present yourself and share your reasons for wanting to protect and preserve your community.  The effort to build these networks often starts very small, within your family or a close circle of friends.

The interesting thing is people who observe the world and can logically interpret facts are often closer to your position than you would ever realize.  Excepting those who go out of their way to signal their adherence to the popular position, you can begin probing those around you by offering statements about the sort of implicit issues that hint at a potential ally.

To make this more concrete, your author frequently interacts at dinner parties with people whom I think might be receptive to the White Nationalist message.  My spouse and I will bring over another family, and our conversations start with simpler issues and basic politics.  Pick an issue you think you might share concern with your target and don’t be afraid to make a strong statement.

If they seem receptive, understand you can shape the opinion by taking the strong position of leadership.  Make a strong value judgment, talk about how your White people don’t behave that way, and share that you want things to change.  Many times, you will be surprised just how liberated people will feel to be able to honestly express their opinion.  The same person who started a conversation virtue signaling about equality might be ranting about niggers within fifteen minutes.

This skill is incredibly basic, but essential to understanding how you must network if you’re going to build the informal connections that create a culture to undermine the media message.

Friends Beget Friends

Although the internet is a great tool for recruiting people and gaining knowledge, its limitations for organizing are also well understood.  Life doesn’t happen online, and political change will not either.  The truth is people have these vast debates and discourses there, but the nuts and bolts of how our society runs are the networking institutions and the governments.  If you can get offline and build the networks, then you can take control of political assets and shift money and resources to aid your effort and the movement.

Start within your own family and get everyone on board.  That is essential.  An unhappy spouse will make it impossible for you to spend the time and energy to organize.

Once you’ve done that, then you work slowly and pull people together one, two, or three at a time.  If you can connect to ten families, you now have a nucleus of forty people.  Don’t make the conversations overtly political and don’t make what you talk about into some action plan no one will enjoy.  Just establish a basic bedrock principle that you have families who care about the White race, its plight, and how to protect your own.

Where we operate, we have found it helpful having put these groups together to have a leader bring them together on a regular basis to gather socially.  Create a space where people feel welcome to express their opinion, remembering that you are empowering your fellow man to know he can speak openly without fear of social ostracism.  These people are your kin, your folk, and the trust you build through proximity will help in good times and bad.

Taking Your Group to the Next Level

As your group grows, encourage natural interests that will benefit your people.  Do not try to impose a single plan, but rather articulate common concerns and encourage people to join in efforts to include issues they already care about.

Where the author operates, local food production is a big thing.  We have people who enjoy working the land, so they work together to help homesteaders find resources and bring food to families who need our help.  Our people gain great satisfactions from that, as volunteers can help Whites in need, and create a positive social perception in the larger community.

This point is very important because through your virtuous action you’re creating cognitive dissonance.  The narrative you are fighting with your actions is that White Nationalists are bad.  But when the media is promoting its degeneracy from afar, and your people are tending not just to food in your community, but potentially helping provide heat from the cold, leading within your churches, or putting on public displays of pride, the people who are perpetually undecided will be put under great pressure to see you as the virtues they want.

As a movement, we put far too much effort and resources into thinking a politician will solve our problems or crafting a perfect set of intellectual solutions to given problems.  This is one of the biggest mistakes out there, because we don’t have the ability to effectuate such outcomes at present!  But what we can do is work in our community or our neighborhood, and build a close-knit social network that both spreads the key idea and enriches our lives.

Working Underneath Scrutiny

Depending on where you live and how much attention you draw to yourself, the challenge you will begin to face as things go well is the increased scrutiny that will come from those who seek to disrupt your success.  Fortunately, you will catch much less heat than those operating at the political level, but as you calibrate your message for your region, people will take notice.

Working through implication is one way to minimize the damage done.  Instead of speaking very openly at the public level about White genocide, a very real phenomenon, organizations might instead speak of culture and heritage, promoting a positive European identity.  It’s worth noting as the culture war moves and depending upon how radical your area is, you can be more aggressive, but remember the goal should be that whatever you do is open enough to bring in new people who you need to be allies.  If what you’ve set up only draws the same people, you probably need to reconsider your message.

Take those people who are most committed, have them work on projects together of greater urgency, and use them in preparation for the long-term betterment and survival of your community.  Good planning will make your lives self-sufficient in good times, so we stress food, energy, security training, and survival skills as key points to share.  But, do not overlook the importance of having fun, so concerts, festivals, handicrafts, and those items are just as important as a source of pride and a way of showing you’re living in the world instead of just waiting for its demise.

If you trust the people around you and are happy working together at the community level, then you can link to other communities and begin to reclaim your lands one town at a time.  The method has been tested and works so quietly that you don’t even realize it is happening, but the hints are when you see people walking with purpose and pride.  We don’t need to shout to be what we are; we just need to rediscover our proud legacy.

Then Politics

Politicians are largely whores.  They cannot help themselves, of course, because you either need a lot of money or a lot of votes to impact policy.  This is why wealthy interests very quickly buy both sides where possible, because it’s a pretty good bargain for their relatively modest contribution to gain control of all the finances a given level of government controls.

To give you some idea of the scope, even a modest small town of maybe 1,000 people probably has a budget between $1-$5 million per year depending upon how wealthy the area is.  If you have 100 people in your town, and someone you trust to lead, then you’ve just taken control of your first real resources.

It’s important to understand the limitations of the law and public finance.  At every level of government, much of the money is constrained to basic infrastructure and mandates given by higher levels.  Put differently, you’ll have no choice in how 90% of your money is spent, though how you implement programs can have a big impact.  But if you can operate government in concert with the informal network which makes decisions about what is and is not right for the town, possibilities emerge.

To offer a concrete example, a mayor in a given town has worked with a local nonprofit to make sure anyone in need gets help without having to use welfare.  Keeping families off the system and into work has kept money in the community and removed government scrutiny.  The organizations work together to make sure families have voluntary housing, avoiding opening up Section 8 locations where Federal rules would force them to accept unwanted people.  The informal network quietly makes sure any unwanted minorities quickly choose to move along through a strategy of exclusion, doing the job the town cannot, but which all agree is necessary.

As you have successes in your towns and make sure your people sit not just on the Council, but also the School Board and other boards, you can take control of what is taught and what is permitted.  It is a slow and uneven process, but it starts with you seeing where civic opportunities exist, bringing people into your network who are in these roles, or promoting your own if none exist.

Politicians who understand you control the votes will vote as you demand.  Towns can be won this way and entire counties will follow.  States are a harder role, but having a few state representatives or senators from your team, eventually, ensures the money from the capital flows back for the programs you support.

One instance that worked well was a town supporting a music festival whose purpose is economic development.  The businesses in town love the extra revenue, the people like the excitement, but the larger cause is served as the event promotes white talent, using subtle cues to white heritage, and it serves as an enormous morale boost and recruiting ground.  Good begets good.

Who Gives and Why

A failure of the movement to this point has been being ashamed about money.  While money is highly problematic and represents a means of control used against us, having resources to spend also conveys much needed legitimacy and the ability to promote, outreach, and share and expand what successes you’ve built from the grassroots.  As ungainly as it is, you need to promote your successes and intentions, because you don’t get a chance to put out the simpler pro-white message.

Government is one side of the coin.  Nonprofits are the other.

So much of the culture war is fought and won by the White destructionist forces because they’re the only ones out there distributing money.  Organizations exist, largely dependent upon and responsive to government and foundation donors, and they are the means by which ideas are interjected into the community and the larger dialogue.  We have not really competed at this level because the social system has ostracized any pro-White group from public legitimacy.  Yet, we need to realize how that power is exerted, and begin fighting back.

Some observations from having been involved in these fights is that having dual purpose organizations are extremely helpful.  You can get that check for $5-$10k just as easily as these horrible organizations do with some local organization and a few friendly letters.  These are your government tax dollars – work to get them for things that benefit your group and your community.  Make sure they have a good public face, and where possible, support anonymous donations.

It is also good where you can have membership organizations and you encourage your own people to give.  It is a challenge that is off putting to many people, however, so the more you can have someone else foot the bill, the easier you might find success to achieve.

How It Pulls Together

This vision offers some guideposts of ideas in execution and that have worked to build a foundation to improve your community in a way sincere to white nationalist beliefs.  It goes without saying that you need to be intelligent about whom you trust and what you share, and always keep in mind success also breeds envy.

But if you start with your family, and connect a few families together, you’ll have the core of a group to make change happen.  Be open about your beliefs, back each other up, and build strength in that core.  Embrace your interests and those civic avenues open to you, whether in the public sector, or whether they be community organizations or a local church.  Win some successes, earn the respect of your community, and you will find people seeking your advice and politicians asking for your support.  Set your prices reasonably, use government to push your cause both financially and legally as the other side has done, and you will be better prepared to face all challenges ahead.

 

 

Additional Ideas

Another path forward is to support local businesses, but also to create businesses that cover needs valuable to the movement, and find employment for your people.  Having those sorts of relationships can sometimes complicate how people connect, but putting wealth into the pockets of people locally creates redundancy for meeting needs in a pinch, and hopefully opportunity for more of your people.  Having these people on board very much strengthens your informal social networks and your political clout.

Do not be afraid to jump back and forth from going online to build what you’re trying to accomplish.  It might take working through 100 people to find 1 who is useful, but that still has value in terms of showing energy and the few people you collect.  Take your people you find online, work geographically where possible, and work to bring them into the circle of real people.  Have meetings, and keep in mind it only takes one connection to succeed.

Conclusion

The struggle ahead of us is hard, but it’s important to remember history has been shaped with those who have the will to create their own futures.  Our shared American heritage is of people who stood up and took charge when the strongest and best of us decided we had suffered too much.  We must prepare ourselves for that same call, so as you organize, consider always what will be helpful in a good situation and essential in a critical one.  All the things people think they think will fade away against that stark reality, and if you are well-prepared, not only will you survive, but you will become the leaders of your community who make decisions and take charge.

Until that day comes, all we can do is gather our strength, and work in unity.  You likely won’t like everyone with whom you work, and there will always be conflicts of interest.  Settle them through compromise or peaceful separation where possible, remembering there is a bigger cause, time is not our friend, and what motivated you to fight for your future.

Lastly, ask for help if you need it.  Ask from your brothers here and heaven above.  We all need that.

American Reckoning of 2018

The Roper Report

“crack!” sends a shiver down your spine.

The statue falls from its pedestal, face first, into the dirt below.

The crowd cheers as a heavy-set woman stomps on its head and spits. Others follow…

You take your wife’s hand and cross to the other side of the street.

“Maybe we’d better go home,” she says. “I don’t see the police anywhere.”

It’ll blow over, you say. No reason to ruin our night out. And sure enough, by the time you get to the restaurant, everything seems calm.

As you’re getting dessert, the restaurant owner comes out to say a few words in support of the protest – something about the necessity of turning our backs on history to move forward.

A number of diners clap in agreement. Your wife rolls her eyes. You ask for the check.

A moment later, the waiter is swiping your card. it’s not going through…

Come out from among them.

The Roper Report

by Billy Roper

The ongoing turmoil in Zimbabwe, formerly White ruled Rhodesia, provides another stark lesson to those who would return to a multiracial society with Whites controlling a nonWhite population, rather than being separate from them.

This very interesting article is two years old, but demographic data from 2015 and 2016 support the thesis expressed, namely, that some southern states are on the way to becoming majority nonWhite within the near future. In fact, as regional White flight out of the black belt accelerates, so will this process.

Texas, of course, is already majority nonWhite, though north Texas may well be preserved as a part of New America, where their Gulf deepwater ports would be very useful. Georgia and Florida will both go majority nonWhite within less than a decade. Louisiana and Mississippi are projected to follow suit the decade after, with Virginia and North Carolina not far…

In (New America) how will we recover people?

The Roper Report

by Haman

As many of you are aware, the Pioneer Little Europe Prospectus (It proposes Stormfronts of the street, partly visible and partly invisible, with one foot in the local system and one foot out) has many recommendations about how we might bring White Nationalists and therefore White Nationalism itself into a position of enormous influence in a very short time.

Our survival tools are supposed to be available within our Western culture, and within local reach, so that’s exactly where we’re installing them.

We know this would work because it’s about engaging – largely for the first time in our history – the time tested option of community organizing; the very principles which enable all our opponents and competitors to eat up the living spaces and culture of the existing type of White community.

You know, your community, the one going down like the Hindenburg and taking you with…

Ignorance and deceit

The Roper Report

Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson, who was formerly a lawyer and a federal prosecutor who targeted Whites, and his Correctional Affairs Counsel, Joe West, both claimed that if another state asked for an Arkansas citizen to be extradited, they had no choice but to accede to that demand. That was why, allegedly, the governor refused Jacob Goodwin’s family’s plea that he meet with them, and ignored the petition signed by hundreds of concerned citizens that he delay or stipulate the extradition request of Jacob to Virginia. In a letter Hutchinson wrote to Jacob Goodwin’s mother, received on the day Jacob was extradited, he claimed that neither the merits of the case, nor claims that the person sought for arrest would not receive a fair trial in the pursuant state, mattered a whit.

That’s bullshit. Asa Hutchinson is either a liar or stupid. Or both. Joe West knows better, too, and his…

Changing the world, one person at a time.

The Roper Report

by Billy Roper

A lot of people feel frustrated about the growing degeneracy of the world. They understand that the electoral system is rigged, and that we won’t be able to vote our way out of this mess until we have control over who the electorate is, once again. They comprehend that we cannot openly rebel against the Federal government at this stage, until it is weakened through an abdication of power or through its lessening will to exercise that power, and the erosion of support for it from both the right and the left. That phenomenon will accelerate as America polarizes and division grows further. Things fall apart, and the center cannot hold. As The ShieldWall Plan describes, our task during that process is to exacerbate the natural and organic voluntary separation of the races as we migrate towards emerging ethnostates.

On an individual level, we all have…

Jacob Goodwin is on the way to Virginia, and ultimately, freedom.

Arkansas Man Charged In Unite The Right Beating Of Black Man Extradited To Virginia

Federal authorities, including the U.S. Marshal’s service, had apparently passed on to the Lonoke County Sheriff’s department their mistaken belief that Billy Roper and his ShieldWall Network would be organizing a rally outside the jail to protest the extradition. For this reason, Jacob Goodwin was first transferred early in the morning to the Lonoke city jail from the Lonoke County jail, before the U.S. Marshals snuck him away to carry out the extradition order signed by anti-White cuck and Antifa-loving “Republican In Name Only”, Asa Hutchinson. Governor Hutchinson, who according to his attorney Criminal Justice Counsel Joe West, refused to meet with Jacob Goodwin’s family before signing the extradition papers, despite the large amount of evidence supporting their claim that Goodwin will not receive a fair trial in Virginia and an online petition signed by hundreds…

Hate in America: Where it comes from and why it’s back

The Roper Report

This extremely lengthy article purposefully avoids any real truth, such as the origin of the United States as a White nation built and founded by White Nationalists, or the biological reality of race. It does show how frustrated, desperate, and panicky anti-Whites are, though.

Hate in America: Where it comes from and why it’s back

To better understand the current spike in bigotry and hate in the United States, Yahoo News interviewed historians, sociologists, psychologists and experts who study hate groups. And we spoke to four individuals caught up in the white nationalist movement, including a former Ku Klux Klan leader and a young ex-“social justice warrior,” whose stories are told here.

“We have never had a more racially polarized country than we do now. I mean, we have antifa [i.e., far-left-leaning militant groups] smashing things and beating up Trump supporters…
