I traveled to Birmingham from Athens, GA to see the boys after seeing them the night before in Atlanta. The Nick, the venue, was a converted Majik Mart. The attendance was very poor. All this made it one of the most enjoyable, personable Sloan shows anyone could imagine. Before, while, and after Sheila Devine played, just outside the front door, Chris strummed nearly every song from his book on an acoustic guitar for a group of, maybe, 5 of us. I mean, he played every murph song that he wasn't going to play that night along with a few Kiss covers. I gave him a copy of a cb s'language dictionary. I wonder where it is now? The show was great, as always. Sort of felt like a private showing. Near the end, Patrick and Murph turned over their instruments as a few kids from the audience ripped through "Deeper than Beauty" with the aid of jay and andrew.
If 1) the bulk of professed white natsinaliots are not willing to take real-world action without legitimate sanction for fear of social and occupational consequences.and 2) those few who are willing to take real world action openly promote our endgame, maximum program' message is ways that are socially and politically unpalatable to the population we want to convince.Then what work is there for an explicit white advocate who wants the exact same end result, but wants to work a more palatable, moderated tone that eschews the traditional joke of an image that we have been historically associated with? I think there is work that can be done, but it will be a lonely and thankless job for a while yet. A job that would be made immeasurably easier if all of those who do hit the streets did so in accordance with the reality of our situation and moderated their message and appearance to gain a toe hold. Hopefully Hunter has not given up entirely, because he is right on much of his commentary. It would be a shame to lose his voice. I'd read him even if it was in the guise of a crypto-WN agitator/incrementalist, outside our currently non-functional movement.
