Citizens Protest at White County Courthouse Concerning Confederate Monument

The Roper Report

From the Harding University Bison online college newspaper.

by Natalie E. Smith

…Stone County resident Billy Roper attended the gathering representing the ShieldWall Network, a white Nationalist group that strives to “think racially, take a stand locally.” Roper was strongly opposed to the alleged threat to the monument and came out to defend it.

“I’m here to stop whomever would like to take down the Confederate monument because they’re trying to destroy our people’s culture and heritage and history on the way towards white genocide, on the way to extinction … They’re working on making the people who founded this country a minority in it.”

During the demonstration, Roper was wearing a red “Arkansas Engineering” T-shirt similar to that of former University of Arkansas (UARK) student, Andrew M. Dodson, who was photographed at the white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, on Aug. 11. Roper, along with UARK engineering professor…

Statue Threat Draws A Crowd

The Roper Report

From the Searcy Daily Citizen newspaper account of Friday’s defense of the Confederate monument at the White County courthouse.

by Tracy Whitaker

A threat made by a hacker group to tear down several Confederate statues, including one at the White County Courthouse, resulted in demonstrators gathering downtown in Searcy on Friday, but no physical confrontations.

…Some groups were more organized, such as the ShieldWall Network, a white supremacist group whose leader Billy Roper brought a small contingent of his organization from Stone County, where the organization is based, and from other parts of the state.

Although no one representing Anonymous showed up and no physical violence occurred during the demonstration, a few verbal threats and insults were uttered during history debates, arguments and disagreements surrounding the interpretation of history and the reason the statue should remain.

Roper had called The Daily Citizen earlier in the day, indicating the ShieldWall Network…

Wardrobe Malfunctions

The Roper Report

by Billy Roper

As most of you know, I did not attend the Unite The Right rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, this past weekend. Many of you also, whether you agree with them or not, know my reasons why. It is not my purpose to rehash them here. Nor is it my intent today to discuss in detail the importance of proper logistical planning, which includes secure and publicly confidential rendezvous points, primary and secondary and tertiary withdrawal and regrouping plans, and contingency instructions covering what might happen if the rally is dispersed. This keeps stragglers and small groups from becoming isolated, lost, and directionless should much of their leadership abandon them in the face of defeat. Hypothetically, of course.

I witnessed, through several video live streams, many individual and group acts of courage and manly self-defense Saturday, and I salute those who earned their red laces. There were a large…

Prince of Thieves

The Roper Report

Interesting advice from classic historical fiction about how to build your local ShieldWall Network franchise, using courage, integrity, and not excluding potential members based on class or occupation or educational background. How to gain the support of the community, and the loyalty of your own men.

A quick plot synopsis for you: King Richard the Lionheart has been out of England, waging war as part of the Crusades. He is captured and held for ransom when he attempts to return home. His brother, Prince John wants to seize the throne and be crowned king. The prince is aided and abetted by the Sherriff of Nottingham.

Robin, or Sir Robin of Locksley, is a nobleman who can’t stand by while Prince John savages the countryside, torturing the people into compliance, stealing their crops and animals and daughters, and forcing them to pay ruinous taxes.

Robin assembles a band of Merry Men…

New Fall 2017 SPLC Intelligence Report discusses Billy Roper and political violence.

The Roper Report

“Billy Roper, one of Dr. William Pierce’s most dedicated acolytes within Pierce’s neo-Nazi National Alliance, led such marches in the early 2000s.

In July 2001, Roper led a small procession in support of neo-Nazi musician Hendrik Möebus, who was at that time fleeing murder charges in his home country of Germany. Under scattered rain showers, Roper was attacked, his right eye smacked with a metal bar. Photographers clicked away, capturing him with blood running down his face, onto his blue-and-white stripped dress shirt.

In January of 2002, Roper again led a march. Devotees of the movement traveled to the small town of York, Pennsylvania. Objects and fists flew. Blood flowed. Within the canon of this subcultural street war, it earned a name, “The Battle of York.”

Later that year, in August…

ShieldWall Network launches combat division.

The Roper Report

The ShieldWall Phalanx

The phalanx (Ancient Greek: φάλαγξ; plural phalanxes or phalanges, φάλαγγες, phalanges) was a rectangular mass military formation, usually composed entirely of heavy infantry armed with spears, pikes, sarissas, or similar weapons.

Not all members of The ShieldWall Network are temperamentally or psychologically suited to recruit and cherry-pick new organizational affiliates through local government or civic organizations. In some cases, just as there are those whose professional occupations require that they be financiers and planners of The ShieldWall Network from behind the scenes rather than public activists, there are also ShieldWall Network affiliates who, frankly, have criminal records which may preclude them becoming persons of influence in their community directly and openly.

The ShieldWall Phalanx is an athletic association of all of the male members of The ShieldWall Network who are interested in improving their overall physical health through teamwork-driven activities. Open to all ShieldWall men regardless of…

North Korea’s EMP threat

The Roper Report

North Korea: Shocking
Warning To America

WASHINGTON, D.C. – The Pentagon is scrambling to protect America’s power grid amid fears of attack by North Korea. Former CIA Director James Woolsey:

“According to the Congressional EMP Commission, a single warhead delivered by North Korean satellite could blackout the national electric grid and other life-sustaining critical infrastructures for over a year – killing nine of 10 Americans by starvation and societal collapse.”

President Trump is facing this threat head-on and he is not backing down. He told Reuters, “There is a chance that we could end up having a major, major conflict with North Korea. Absolutely.”

North Korea realizes they can’t beat us with brute military force on the conventional battlefield. We are way too strong for that.

However we do have a weakness that North Korea or other foreign terrorists can use against us…

Our crumbling electric grid.

When Johnny Comes Marching Home

Electronics. Freeze Drying. Material Sciences. Today’s modern-day technologies have made being prepared for short-term and long-term survival easier than ever. Unfortunately, electronics need a constant energy source, freeze dried food is not always on hand, and lightweight materials eventually wear out.

Though today’s sciences have made survival easier, it would behoove us all to keep in mind the survival skills learned and implemented by our forefathers.

A group of resilient individuals who were skilled at surviving the harsh elements with little rations and supplies were the men who fought during the American Civil War: both Union and Confederate.

During this time, a world run on electricity was left to the realm of science fiction. The men on the front lines during the various battles had not computers, GPS, or digital anything. It was an analog world. Even though this sounds archaic in today’s hi-tech world, the durability of a brass and clockwork world has extended to modern times; whereas, many electronics do not last longer than a few years.

Learning to use an analog compass could be one of the most important skills you could acquire.

Additionally, an analog watch would be another common tool that our forefathers carried. The most common style was of course a pocket watch, but a wristwatch works just fine. What is important is the fact the watch is a wind up and does not rely on batteries to operate. There are many wind up watches from the Civil War era that are still in use today. All you do is remember to wind it up every day and you are set.

Tools should not be the only focus when looking for survival tips from the past. Food is another important aspect of survival and again we can look to the rations of the Civil War soldier for ideas. The Confederates and the Federals had very similar diets in the beginning, which consisted primarily of salted pork and dry goods such as beans and rice.

Two main staples of a soldier’s diet were hardtack and desiccated potatoes. Hardtack is a type of hard, dry biscuit made from flour, salt, and water. The ingredients are mixed together and slowly baked until hard. The shelf life of these little briquettes was remarkable so long as they were kept dry.

It was even rumored the U.S. issued hardtack made during the Civil War to soldiers fighting in the Spanish American War.

Another food item soldiers were issued were desiccated potatoes. Once again, the starch laden food was relatively cheap to come by and seemed to have kept the men feeling full. Desiccated is simply another word for dehydrated for all intents and purposes. The potatoes were thinly sliced and dried until all the moisture was removed and the slices were no longer pliable. Like hardtack, desiccated potatoes have an incredible shelf life.

When it came time to eat both, they were commonly boiled in broth or in water with salt pork until the potatoes or the biscuit became tender.

It is common knowledge the most versatile modern-day material is the polyethylene tarp. These tarps can be used as a shelter, water collector, ground cover, or rain fly. Just has the polyethylene has a variety of uses so does its ancestor, the canvas tarp.

The canvas tarp can be used for everything a polyethylene tarp, plus a few extras. Canvas tarps are better suited than polyethylene to fashion replacement packs or totes to carry supplies.

Canvas tarps are also better for being turned into ponchos, jackets, and other clothing items. During the Civil War, it was common to draw field maps on canvas instead of paper because of its water resistance and durability.

There is no doubt modern technology has made survival and emergency preparedness much easier. However, this does not mean should not look to the past for tips and techniques for successful survival.

Always Safe, Always Prepared
