On March 18th, 2017, the second ShieldWall Network meeting was held in central Arkansas. The attendees, which consisted of twelve men, three women, and four young people ages 10-15, enjoyed the snacks and many raffled door prizes, as well as the speakers, but the face-to-face camaraderie they experienced was probably the most encouraging and beneficial impact of their attendance. Six of them were people whom I had never met before, and I love to make new friends “IRL”, “In Real Life”.
Some books and CDs were sold, a lot of free literature was passed out, and several ongoing affiliated projects were described, including Tina’s discussion of the Tomorrow Belongs To Me Sobriety program, the Shield Maidens women’s organization, and the Cover Our People With Love pro-White charity. Thank you to Sharon and Kim for your donations to ‘Cover Our People With Love‘. Also, thank you to Chris and Justina for helping to plan and organize the meeting, and secure its location.
Karl gave an excellent presentation on the importance of getting involved in local politics, and inspired the audience to follow his example in becoming active in the community as a person of influence in that manner. He also presented an informative powerpoint slideshow about the ShieldWall Network‘s upcoming summer group campout, which was then planned among the attendees.
Pat, a White Nationalist author and podcast host, spoke about his racial awakening and discussed the impetus for his research into our people’s history, culture, and heritage. Like Billy Roper, he also had his books available for signing and purchase at the meeting. Here is Pat’s website.
After a discussion a vote was held to decide the location of the next ShieldWall Network meeting, and the consensus was that it will be held in Northern Arkansas on the third Saturday in May.
Following the meeting’s adjournment, participants took part in the ‘White Man’s March‘ demonstration of opposition against White genocide, centered around a large professionally made banner which states in big, bold red letters that ‘Diversity = White Genocide‘. There was NO confrontation with law enforcement or counter-demonstrators, or any problems experienced whatsoever. The only negative reaction was one woman across the street shaking her head in disapproval. Some ShieldWall Network affiliates provided discrete security overwatch of the situation, just in case, while others actively participated. Otherwise, we received only thumbs up, waves, smiles, and honks of support. Some drivers turned around and parked across the busy street in rush hour traffic to take pictures of us and the banner.
Overall, it was a wonderful day, the meeting and getting to know new people, as well as seeing some whom I hadn’t worked with in years, was great, very great. Sharing ideas, tactics, and strategies to benefit ourselves, one another, and our community and race as a whole was very educational, inspiring, and encouraging for everyone present. I’d like to thank everyone who attended, from the college kid Alt Righters to the old fighters of the movement who have been doing this with me for twenty years. I’d also like to thank Bob, who wasn’t able to make it but sent along with two other patriots who did attend, a large selection of bottled water and soft drinks to go along with the snacks and finger foods which everyone appreciated very much.
In conclusion, I was extremely happy with the turnout, especially considering how many young people and new people there were present.Those who have held in real life White Nationalist meetings understand that, some organization’s artificially inflated numbers aside, getting 19 people together locally is a respectable attendance.There were many other people who would have come, had they not been kept from doing so by work or family obligations which we understood. It’s anticipated that their added presence at the next meeting in May will make that gathering even larger, as the ShieldWall Network continues to grow.
For those who were not able to attend this meeting, here is a ten minute long video excerpt giving you an idea of what The ShieldWall Network is all about. Feel free to share it, of course. We hope to see you next time!
