Peculiar New Trend In the Far Right:

There's a peculiar new trend among the fascists for "community organizing." Oddly, it seems to be making many of them a bit friendlier. Friendly fascism? That's a good one!



Fascist watchers need to be on high alert about the latest spin from the far right - Community Organizing! They're even telling their people to become familiar with the community books of others; everything from Hillary Clinton, to Martin Luther King, to Karl Marx. Perhaps it will do them some good. If anyone else sees anything like this, please let us know at Fascist Watch.

[QUOTE]Pioneer Little Europe's Open Community Dynamics by H. Michael Barrett

A Little Europe is a generic term for any local community where Whites live in close proximity to businesses which offer cultural facilities and services consciously supporting their political revival.

Fonts of Revival: For centuries the United Kingdom and Ireland have been America\\'s main connections to the nations of Europe and the world, which has a lot to do with language. And now thanks to the line of communication existing between the British National Party and the American Friends of the British National Party, our Little Europes have successful examples for establishing healthy relationships among Whites and going about the process of securing a worthwhile future for them.

The BNP also advocates ethnic self determination for both Irish cultures, and leads all other parties in demanding Ireland for the Irish race, so Irish Americans are especially enthusiastic about their example - having themselves made vast contributions to the White nationalist cause here in the United States.

Social Space: Observe birds on a street wire and you\\'ll soon notice that they nearly always give each other social space; in fact, one of the indications of birds clashing is when space is rudely ignored. Human beings assert varying social spaces for themselves as well; personally and as ethnic groups (as in race and culture).

Other races can\\'t generally walk unmolested in Black neighborhoods, and residents of Chinese neighborhoods don\\'t sell property to outsiders, but none of the organizers responsible for establishing those and many other expanding areas even attracts the attention of civil rights law enforcers. It will also be possible for us to establish Little Europes without illegality (as law-abiding as the present White community) .

Renters Blitzkrieg: This peculiar sounding term was coined in the 1970s, and refers to a so called civil rights technique that was used - ironically - to overthrow a popular Irish working class neighborhood in San Francisco. And probably few residents in most neighborhoods even realize it exists.

It\\'s a kind of moving sit-in that goes unnoticed for months, but the people stay permanently. Of course, little was said about the families who fled this massive wave of homosexual renters, but the tactic was not made illegal due to the impossibility of controlling where people choose to move.

It has often been observed that our own movement has a disproportionate number of men, and a growing number of women, without the benefit of deep roots. They would be just as inclined to go where opportunities and adventure abound. And there are always new relationships, money, and opportunity wherever those with similar values move en masse; because many locals will prefer to go elsewhere.

White merchants with self-hating attitudes will follow settled customers in flight, but they will drop prices and sell their shops to the strongest among the conscious-Whites before departing.

At first glance most of the newcomers will look quite powerless, especially to those with long term career commitments or investments, but those who have little to lose are also the risk takers. A peculiar thing about all the community building projects which caused White flight is that they too began with an \\"invasion\\" of the poorest and most mobile (That\\'s what that slogan on the Statue of Liberty once meant to Whites).

Before giving the signal for your own land rush to begin, however, have advance scouts examine the cheapest clusters of rentable housing in your area, because the first wave of Whites isn\\'t going to be choosey. This is very much like bringing relatives from the old country, so the less expensive it is for everyone the better. If you have middle class qualms about this, and that\\'s understandable, try to get pass it.

Think about how poor and rough the Chinese men were when they came without wives during the gold rush era, but now their families have almost half of San Francisco as their Little China. It wasn\\'t an accident, their fraternal societies have done it that way for centuries, and you mustn\\'t hesitate to release the highly coiled social power of Whites ready to go (Moving and rebuilding allows races to recover from difficulty).

For decades liberals have been conditioning Whites, who are captured audiences of liberals in the old White communities, that they have no moral right to ethnic space. And our opponents go even further in removing the cultural infrastructure within our communities (race consciousness). But the subtle genocide will be halted for those who stand with us, building Little Europe(s) and promoting a cultural revival to erect strong supports - similar to the way timbers are lodged throughout a mine.

Time Factor: Occasionally Whites who want to live in a race conscious community still say: \\"Wouldn\\'t this take too long?,\\" as they either realize we are running out of time, or would rather curl up where it is safe and avoid debating their ideas to the world. But alternative communities are often known to establish themselves quickly.

In 1965, for example, someone showed me the Haight Ashbury. He was quite attuned and receptive to all the changes. At the time little seemed out of the ordinary, though there were cafes where singers and poets advocated drug use, and a few shops sold drug oriented paraphernalia. But in just three years hippies controlled those streets.

Contrary to a popular misconception, community building is actually one of the fastest ways for any group of people to experience the exhilaration of seeing some of their values implemented, as each day\\'s victories lift the spirit and accelerate the critical mass of those who long felt as if they were \\"waiting for Godot.\\"

Any political community is like a giant magnifying glass, because the energy is focused and acts as a catalyst on the old neighborhood. And it\\'s like a two-for-one offer at the supermarket, because domino-like effects also radiate into faraway neighborhoods that your resources couldn\\'t reach.

Advance Scouts/Reception: Choose confident and engaging people for these related tasks, as they will provide the most lasting impressions to those who pour in. Imagine yourself in a bewildered newcomers shoes: Wouldn\\'t you return home if there was a lack of warmth and support in this unfamiliar urban wasteland (An undeveloped Little Europe), or if the journey resulted in being exploited by people you trusted?

In the beginning our new arrivals should gain an immediate social tie with us. And they are going to have that same nervous excitement that their ancestors had on their faces, as they headed west in a covered wagon carrying what little they could. In the case of the Mormon exodus to Utah, a great number of them simply walked all the way, pushing along their few belonging in a handcart (like a wheel barrow).

That wasn\\'t a suggestion, just a graphic example of the length people will go to just to live in a society where they are not constantly disrespected for their beliefs, exploited, harassed, threatened, or murdered. And if any ask: \\"Aren\\'t you making promises?\\" Tell them the truth, we can\\'t promise anything; in fact, they definitely shouldn\\'t come unless it makes sense to them as well.

And if they say: \\"Is this part of some secret plot?\\" Again be straightforward, telling them that building an open community requires explaining the dynamics publicly. How open each individual will be after they arrive will depend on personal preference, but past examples suggest we\\'ll be closer to each other.

Welcome Wagon: As your receptionists greet the first wave, they should try to sort out who came mostly for personal freedom and who came mostly to build the community. After the latter type becomes acclimated to the area they can help enlarge the welcome wagon activities for entire White families to follow.

Let there be no prejudice about the idealistic single members in your welcome wagon, as they and the families coming will have a natural rapport for each other. And even single people who come mostly out of personal motives fit in somewhere, reassuring similar types in the old community that will take a wait and see attitude.

Advertising: When advertising for settlers to come to your territory, be sure to let them know about all the resources available to those who can stand on their own two feet, because you won\\'t be able to support them.

Describe the area\\'s employment opportunities, properties for sale and rent, parking, public transportation, schools, libraries, museums, and especially any services already available from Little Europe\\'s business community.

Past examples of community building reveal that the flood of newcomers will establish themselves around the shops, services, and organizations who were the quickest to say \\"We welcome your business.\\"

Repeating/Reviving: The residents of Little Europe will sometimes be seen repeating things to their friends in the barbershop, at the local bar, or at the veterans legion post, but it\\'s often not accidental or because they\\'re unimaginative.

They have the patience to repeat building principles for the benefit of the doubting Thomases, or those who didn\\'t possess enough community spirit to listen the first time.

Some listeners need a lot more time to carefully fit all the unfamiliar pieces together in their minds, and others will seem incapable of believing until it\\'s built. Community organizing is like that, a kind of game where you can expect different speeds and responses from listeners.

Stereotype: The many different types of people who will comprise Little Europe will be its best protection from any opponent\\'s stereotype. The hippies of San Francisco\\'s Haight Ashbury were not routed because of the hard drug dealers, the homosexuals of that city\\'s Castro district were not routed because of the occasional incidents of public sex, and Little Europe
