The importance of street level activism cannot be understated in advancing a political message. Allowing the community, both friend and foe, to see your face and see your dedication in standing strong for your message helps embolden those who are sympathetic. It shows the weakness of the opposition. Activism stakes out your territory for all sides to see, and in the the battle between Tradition and modernity, the streets need us now more than ever.
The importance of local activism to the success of our movement is something that has been lost on too many activists. The organized Left has learned that being intimately in their communities is a way of building a power base and expanding influence. My good friend Tom Pierce has been working on this in Tennessee through his Council of Conservative Citizens Chapter and his “Ten Milers”. Tom is a devoted Christian, a fearless activist, a skilled organizer, and a true friend.
The term “Ten Miler” is generally used as a derogatory term for country folks who never leave ten miles from their birthplace, but the young Christian men of Tennessee are turning it into a battle cry. The Ten Milers are retaking sections of Tennessee through fraternal friendship, community activism, Christian principles, and devoted street action. I was blessed to be able to meet with Tom and some of his members alongside other White advocates to take a stand against the systematic displacement and destruction of our folk and culture.
Gathering in fellowship, several groups of White advocates went out to different locations in the State to bring the message of White genocide to the masses. We gathered on a busy overpass and presented our banner to rush hour traffic. We carried with us two Celtic Cross flags, a Confederate battle flag, a Trans-Mississippi battle flag, a banner on White genocide, and some signs. I was ecstatic about the reception we received from both traffic passing us on the street and those on the highway below us.
Over the course of our activism, our group had hundreds of honks of support. Being a veteran activist I have experienced plenty of angry honks and middle fingers in my day, but this past weekend we received nothing but support from the locals. Guys and gals loaded into pickup trucks, bikers, big rig drivers, soccer moms, and everyone in between honked in support to our message, gave thumbs up, and even pulled off the interstate just to talk to us. TradYouth gained prospective members from young men and women who were thrilled to see some of them for the first time, White men and women who were willing to stand up for our race.
When the sheriff’s department rolled up to tell us to move off the overpass, locals actually stopped their vehicles to argue with the cops about our right to protest. One man began shouting “1st Amendment! Freedom of Speech” while others took a stand on our message. The cops looked embarrassed as they moved our group, including several combat veterans, off the bridge, which we did immediately when asked. While the System that the police support is corrupt and anti-White, most police officers are normal working class White men and women who are sympathetic to our cause. In Greece where over fifty percent of Greek cops voted for Golden Dawn, we have to be mindful of their pivotal role in all this.
Moving from the bridge, our group went to the Knoxville courthouse and enjoyed more local support. Folks out attending supper and headed to the bar took time out of their Friday night to interact with us. Thumbs up, supportive horn honking, and interest in our message was the overwhelming response, even in a big city.
For only a few hours of our time, we reached thousands of folks with our message of White Pride and opposition to White Genocide. Those who pick up a flag or a banner to stand up for our people are not scary looking or full of hate, we are moved by love and a sense of Christian stewardship for our people and our nation. When our different groups join together from different activism project, I began to understand the depth of Codreanu’s Legionnaire philosophy. During the weekend we attended Church together, ate together, enjoyed street action together, and shared in hours of fellowship. Although our group involved White advocates from different generations and different perspectives, we were united in our message.
With the values of Traditionalism and the courage of our ancestors, our group helped embolden the youth of Tennessee with our vision. Our Day Will Come, and our people shall rise up together, ten miles at a time.
