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.
This 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.
