Radicalizing Prospects (Get them involved!)

Finding potential ShieldWall members is one thing. Getting them motivated to actually show up for a meeting and get involved, is another issue entirely. Harold Covington just sent me these tips on how to radicalize and recruit local prospects for The ShieldWall Network:

“One of the main symptoms of this society’s disease is the proliferation of weak, arrogant, incompetent and silly people in positions of petty power over people’s lives–bureaucrats, supervisors, teachers, thugs from the badly misnamed Child Protective Services agencies, attorneys, judges, “administrators” of various kinds, the 101 little commissars of Political Correctness that White males and, increasingly, White females as well have to put up with in their day-to-day existence.

        Most White people probably don’t bear any kind of personal grudge against, say, President Bush or Dick Cheney or Jesse Jackson, just a generalized and impersonal resentment. These are celebrity figures, far above their personal orbits, and in most minds there’s a disconnect. Jug-Ears isn’t really a real person, he’s just someone you see on TV, if you get my meaning.

        But the asshole “supervisor” at work, the stupid nigger clerk at the grocery store, Apu in the turban behind the counter at the DMV, the Mexicans who visibly take White people’s jobs, the ex’s vicious attorney and the judge who never listens–this puts a human face on the evil.

        Use this in your grass-roots work. Let White people know that our victory means all those monkeys off their backs–and punished for what they’ve done. Always try to slip that in. Personal revenge is going to be a major motive in our initial recruiting. It’s humanly understandable and it’s a perfectly acceptable motive at first. Use personal wrongs as a hook to get people in and get them in a frame of mind so they’ll listen to the ideological stuff, and educate them from there so they know why all this has happened.”

I couldn’t agree more! I hope this helps our recruiting efforts over the next few weeks!

If you have to go it alone when SHTF.

by Billy Roper

As most of my friends know, I don’t recommend being a recluse or hermit, either now or when the crisis scenario hits and America balkanizes. That’s the entire idea behind The ShieldWall Network. We want to have pre-existing allies, assets, and resources in place for our mutual support and assistance. However, if for whatever reason the thin veneer of civilization gets stripped away before you can rendezvous with your group, even the best laid plans may go awry. If you find your self temporarily isolated, there are some specific circumstances which can be mitigated.

Take a few minutes and read these recommendations from a professional survival expert who lived through the Yugoslavian civil war in the 1990’s, a scenario very much like what we can expect to encounter.

Having A Cause, Mobility, and Skills…they’re all good prerequisites to help you fight your way to your ShieldWall.

Learning from our enemies (French translation)

Apprendre de nos adversaires
Nul ne peut nier l’efficacité organisationnellle de la gauche radicale. Ils transportent par bus des manifestants, parfois professionnels, mais le plus souvent des volontaires motivés idéologiquement, d’une ville à une autre à travers tout le pays pour tirer parti des occasions fabriquées par les média. Que celles-ci soient selon les cas Black Lives Matter, les Réfugiés Musulmans, le Droit à l’Avortement ou ceux des LGBTQ, ils sont sur toutes les chaînes, dans tous les journaux ou toutes les discussions, et non seulement parce qu’ils ont les média sous contrôle de leur côté, mais parce qu’ils sont bien organisés. Ils ont leur truc bien en main. Ils y arrivent par le biais du militantisme au niveau de la communauté et par un maillage de celle-ci. Nombre de ces mêmes tactiques pourraient être employées par les patriotes, Nationalistes et survivalistes pour bâtir et agrandir le Réseau du Mur de Boucliers à notre profit.
Saul Alinsky, le juif communiste qui a inspiré Barack Obama et Hillary Clinton, ne jurait que par la création d’organisations, pas de mouvements. Alinsky est mort en 1972 et son ouvrage très influent “Pour une action directe non violente” (Rules for Radicals) a été publié il y a 45 ans, mais il vaut le coup d’être lu par nous aujourd’hui. Ecoutez bien…
Article de 2014 tiré d’AlterNet :
“Les recommandations les plus durables d’Alinsky ne sont pas ses directives tactiques bien connues comme “le ridicule est l’arme la plus puissante de l’homme” ou “le pouvoir n’est pas ce dont vous disposez, mais ce que l’ennemi croit que vous avez”. Ce sont plutôt celles incorporées dans un ensemble de pratiques organisationnelles et de prédispositions, une approche précise pour monter en puissance au niveau des communautés locales. Traînez un peu dans des mouvements sociaux et vous serez à coup sûr confronté aux lois de l’organisation d’une communauté façon Chicago : “Ne parlez pas idéologie, juste des problèmes. Pas de politique électorale. Bâtissez des organisations, pas des mouvements… Concentrez-vous sur le voisinage et sur des objectifs concrets, atteignables.”
La suite de l’article est une discussion sur la façon dont les principes d’Alinsky ont été mis en pratique, avec différents degrés de succès par des organisations ultérieures comme le Tea Party. Quand vous lirez cet article, regardez bien les réponses à ces questions :
Quelle est la différence entre une organisation et un mouvement ?
Quel genre de participant devrait rechercher une organisation ?
Comment doit-on choisir les objectifs et les priorités d’une organisation ?
Comment une organisation devrait essayer d’atteindre ces objectifs ?
Jusqu’à la prochaine réunion du Réseau du Mur de Boucliers, lisez cet article et commencez à réfléchir à la façon dont nous pourrons appliquer à nous-mêmes ces principes d’organisation.

VISIONS, GOALS, PLANS AND SYSTEM

 

Learning from our enemies.

Learning from our enemies.

by Billy Roper

crusadersNoone can deny the organizational efficiency of the radical Left. They bus in protesters, sometimes professionals, and more often ideologically motivated volunteers, from one city to another cross-country to take advantage of their manufactured media opportunities. Whether the specific issue is Black Lives Matters, or Muslim Refugees, or Abortion Rights, or the LGBTQ agenda, they dominate the coverage and discussion not just because they have the controlled media on their side, but because they are well organized. They have their stuff together. They got this way through community activism, and through networking. Many of those same tactics can be used by patriots, Nationalists, and preppers in building and expanding The ShieldWall Network, for our own purposes.

Saul Alinsky, the Communist Jew who inspired Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, swore by creating organizations, not movements. Alinsky died the same year that I was born, and his highly influential ‘Rules For Radicals’ was published 45 years ago, but I think it’s still worth reading for us, today. Listen to this…

From this 2014 AlterNet article:

“The most lasting of Alinsky’s prescriptions are not his well-known tactical guidelines — “ridicule is man’s most potent weapon” or “power is not only what you have, but what the enemy thinks you have.” Rather, they are embedded in a set of organizational practices and predispositions, a defined approach to building power at the level of local communities. Hang around social movements for a while and you will no doubt be exposed to the laws of Chicago-style community organizing: “Don’t talk ideology, just issues. No electoral politics. Build organizations, not movements … Focus on neighborhoods and on concrete, winnable goals.”

What follows in the article is a discussion of how Alinsky’s principles were put into practice, with varying degrees of success by later organizations from Occupy to the Tea Party. As you read the piece, look for the answers to these questions:

What is the difference between an organization and a movement?

What kind of participant should an organization look for?

How should the goals and priorities of an organization be chosen?

How should the organization try to achieve those goals?

In between now and the next ShieldWall Network meeting, read this article and begin thinking about how we can apply these principles of organization for ourselves.

Cards for Seniors… completed

This is the kind of real world community activism and volunteering which builds bridges locally, and helps you become a person of influence in your community as you network with other local people who care! This is exactly what the ShieldWall Network promotes.

We had a successful turnout for the community service project that consisted of about fifty people (adults and children) decorating Valentine cards. In total we managed to complete 150 cards which will be given to local nursing homes Monday afternoon.

Le Réseau du Mur de Boucliers : IRL

Le Réseau du Mur de Boucliers : IRL
Certains d’entre vous pourraient se demander pourquoi le Réseau du Mur de Boucliers est-il nécessaire ? Quelle sera la niche qu’il va occuper dans le mouvement ? N’est-ce pas juste qu’une nième tentative de lancer une autre organisation associative plaidant pour une cause unique, ou jouant à se déguiser, ou faisant en sorte que les gens lui envoient leur cotisation en échange d’une carte et d’un diplôme de membre ?
Non, pas du tout. Dans le Mur de Boucliers, notre peau est notre seul uniforme. Nous n’avons pas de grades, pas de niveaux, pas de poignées de main secrètes. Chaque Mur de Boucliers a un Coordinateur, mais nous nous tenons tous épaule contre épaule dans le Mur de Boucliers. Ce n’est pas un culte de la personnalité ou une structure pyramidale. C’est IRL.
Dans les courriels ou le jargon de la sténo en ligne, l’abbréviation “IRL” signifie “In Real Life / Dans le Monde Réel”. C’est quelque chose qui fait cruellement défaut dans la vie de la plupart des Nationalistes Blancs actuels et qui plus est, dans les activités de nombre de nos contemporains.
Laissez-moi ici être sévère, parce que c’est ce qu’il faut :
A notre époque où Internet est submergé de sites et de forums, la plupart des Nationalistes Blancs voient leurs besoins psychologiques de validation et d’information comblés en ligne. La plupart n’adhéreront à rien. Il est trop facile de jouir de tous les bénéfices sans adhérer. Mais…
Ce que nous essayons de faire au sein du Réseau du Mur de Boucliers est d’occuper une niche que la communication, l’interaction et l’exploration de données en ligne ne remplissent pas : une interaction et un militantisme en personne, IRL, et un maillage de proximité, sur le terrain. Notre but est d’aider les gens à réseauter, trouver et rencontrer d’autres gens aux mêmes idées IRL, et de devenir des personnes d’influence dans leurs communautés, au niveau local.
Nous voulons que le Réseau du Mur de Boucliers soit plus fort que et indépendant d’Internet. Nous voulons que les gens se connaissent et soient amis IRL. Face à face.
Et c’est là que je dois être méchant : le problème ne vient pas de nos idées, mais des gens. Ils sont accros à obtenir leur interaction et leur information de façon rapide, facile et gratuite, sans risque et sans frais. Cela les a rendu paresseux.
Nous espérons que certains pourraient avoir envie de quelque chose de plus réel, quelque chose de plus terre-à-terre, local et en direction du peuple. Quelque chose d’authentique.
Avez-vous eu l’occasion de lire l’énoncé de mission du Mur de Boucliers ?
Si vous êtes l’un des rares, l’élite, une personne d’action et d’authenticité qui ne se satisfait pas de pianoter comme un malade sur un clavier, nous vous offrons une chance de faire quelque chose de réel, d’être l’un des nôtres dans le Mur de Boucliers.
Si cela sonne bien, alors donnez-nous de vos nouvelles.

Have you heard of the ShieldWall Network?

What is The ShieldWall Network?

by Billy Roper

Whether you are a member of a patriotic organization, or independent, we invite you to take part in this locally-focused, grassroots endeavor. No membership fees or dues are required, but a commitment is needed. Become a part of a ShieldWall in your area. Think racially, take a stand locally.

white-revolutionThis is the symbol of The ShieldWall Network.

The ShieldWall began in classical Greek civilization, when the courageous Spartans and other Greek warriors, such as Leonidas and his 300 at Thermopylae, linked their shields together against the invaders. It is in honor of them that the Spartan lambda shield is the symbol of The ShieldWall Network. Later, the brave Roman legions emulated the Greek ShieldWall with their ‘tortoise’. For our northern European ancestors, one of the most effective defensive tactics employed was the ShieldWall. Vikings, Angles, and Saxons alike, as well as kindred tribes, often stood shoulder to shoulder, side by side, with the rims of their shields overlapping. In a ShieldWall, every man is responsible for protecting the man to his left with their shield, held in their left hand, covering their neighbor on that side, and attacking the enemy with their right hand spear. To that end all members of the shield wall are equally reliant and dependent on one another. If one fails to do his duty, his neighbors suffer for it, first. If the ShieldWall is broken, then the enemy can penetrate the defensive lines and wreak havoc among those the ShieldWall defends. Thus, trust and loyalty are important traits for warriors in the ShieldWall.

The kind of grassroots, community level networking we want to promote for each member of The Shieldwall Network requires a similar level of mutual trust and dependence. Contrary to the lone wolf mentality, we are not hermits or individualists, nor do we see that escape from the reality our people face as a solution to the problems threatening us now, and in the future. However, in many of our communities, we may well have to begin grassroots level organizing and networking on our own. Each of us, then, becoming persons  of influence in our communities, can strengthen the ShieldWall as a whole, by eventually bringing more people into it.

How you can expand The ShieldWall Network:

We all have the ability, opportunity, and responsibility to serve as leaders and spokespersons in our communities, using the radical flank effect to shift the Overton Window of acceptable discussion to the right among our peers and friends. That will reinforce, embolden, and encourage them to speak more boldly and forthrightly the things which are ‘politically incorrect’, perhaps, but nonetheless commonly held, unspoken beliefs. At the same time, we can encourage people to prepare themselves psychologically and materially for what is coming. In this way, we can each become persons of influence in our community.

If what many believe is coming arrives, the number of people whom you can trust to stand beside you manning a roadblock barricade to defend your neighborhood will be more important than how many likes you can get on Fakebook, or followers on Tweeter. White America needs grassroots networking, from the ground up. Everyone reading this knows someone they can talk to about our future. Politically, with the nation more polarized and divided than at any time in our lives, now is the perfect time to seek that opening. If you’d like to become a person of influence in your community, and build your own local ShieldWall network, we’d like to tell you how.

Challenge One: Locate meeting places for like-minded people near you: gun shops, shooting ranges, local and County Republican parties, Veteran’s organizations, and Tea Party groups can be cherry-picked for those who are of similar values, and amenable to radicalization.

Challenge Two: Get involved in local community groups, volunteerism, and social events. Become known and accepted as an insider. Attend city council meetings, school board meetings, or any other local civic events, (4H, etc.) especially if you have children. Get to know your local and County police, as many in law enforcement share our values, and may be very useful in the future. Even those who do not, and will not, are still better known, than unknown. The same is true for local elected officials, of course. Remember, we are co-opting them, they are not co-opting us.

Challenge Three: Get to know your neighbors, starting with those closest to you. Be friendly, pick up trash alongside the shared road, invite them over for a barbecue, have play dates between their children and yours, or give them your number to call if there’s anything suspicious going on in the neighborhood that you need to take a united stand on. Make a point to touch base with them regularly. Earn their trust, for future influence.

Challenge Four: Begin feeling them all out for potential radicalization and usefulness as a part of The ShieldWall Network. What resources or skills do they have? What experiences, such as job or military, do they bring to the table? How far along the path can they be brought towards us, ideologically?

Challenge Five: Coordinate with other members of The ShieldWall Network, comparing the available resources and areas of expertise which you’ve located and accessed. Develop a list of desired resources and skill sets which are still lacking in the network, and work to develop a plan to actively seek out and recruit new individuals with those specific assets.

We will be physically meeting once every two months, to share our challenge results and progress. That means that, just as in the shield walls formed by our ancestors, we will all be accountable to one another for working on the network. At those subsequent meetings we will offer advice, assistance, and encouragement, as needed, to one another, as well as share ideas and inspiration. This will help maintain everyone’s focus and direction. Those who are unable to attend, despite their best efforts, should be in communication with the network through e-mail, to achieve the same effect. This will always be a group-driven and guided project, whether face to face or online, whether you are working alone, or as a part of our network. Do not let the shield wall down. Stand with it, and it will stand with you.
