Forum Post: Organize for Direct Action

Posted 5 years ago on Feb. 10, 2014, 9:10 a.m. EST by JGriff99mph (507)
This content is user submitted and not an official statement

Would anyone be interested in creating a few pages here that are dedicated to soliciting ideas from the entire nation for upcoming actions?

Obviously, the traffic here is extremely slow, so there would have to be outside soliciting. We can break up the nation into territories, and spread the word via twitter/facebook, targeting local groups in said territory.

All on board say Aye.

What do you want, Jeremy? How does this benefit your PR firm?

[-] 1 points by JGriff99mph (507) 5 years ago

I don't have a pr firm.

This benefits me the same it benefits you the same it benefits everyone.

National days of action are where its at, its tough to get it going though.

Are you in? Would you like to help?

[-] 0 points by GirlFriday (17435) 5 years ago

I don't think he is able to- i mean he's looking to a forum to try & plan actions.

Guess he hasn't heard of the dozen or so sites we use to plan this stuff.

Smells piggy to me

Be clear!! It aids his libertopian shilling.

Ya, real piggy ugh.

All I'm saying is that this site gets a ton of hits, and if you would rather keep this as an opinion page of mainstream politics than fine. Just realize what the effect it has on the understanding of anyone that comes here. And I'm not talking about the 2% of the nation that understands what occupy was really about/like.

[-] 0 points by GirlFriday (17435) 5 years ago

All you're saying is corporations are people too. The same as you have always said. PR firms suck. Ugh!!

I support MTA, here's the video of me there last time they came to Tampa:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QBxgmEJxHo0

I'm sure you know which one is me at this point (green shirt). The one doing that specific video is an interesting story though (one that I didnt bother to get all involved with). We livestreamed the last (with Kulecki, who did a lot of stuff with OT) one and Anita is the lead organizer for MTA in Tampa/St Pete, in the foreground. Feel free to get ahold of her and ask her how I feel about CU. She's a public figure, not hard to find.

We'll be back at it at the end of February, I'll give ya shout out.

Peace.

I will not be asking anyone how you feel about anything. Not now, not ever. You're a PR firm with ties to a libertopian think tank. You are an anarcho-capitalist.

[-] 1 points by JGriff99mph (507) 5 years ago

An Ancap? haha. What is this obsession with labeling?

Ancaps have one serious problem- somethings like medical technology are so expensive, have such a short lifespan, that to think a community can provide for this without community involvement is pretty naive.

Now how you go about this- taxes through local government, fundraising drives, etc is another topic. But it needs community.

Any links to this magical pr firm I work for would be appreciated. Perhaps someone owes me some cash that I didnt realize! haha. Only on the internet do we have people who claim to know something, then when you provide them the path to confirm or deny, they refuse!

I'm not bickering with you. You got the answer to Corporations and People you were looking for, it just doesnt fit the narrative you are looking for.

Have a nice day, whoever you are.

Toilet Mouthed Idiot !!! Get some Freudian anal-ysis 'GirlFukwit' ! Your lingo says you're in need of it !

How come the guy was here with 'points' of 3k+ ? He has persevered and I commend him for it because I don't need to agree with him 100% to respect and like him. Do u think you're the 'Thought Commissar' here or something ? Sheeeeeesh !

[-] -1 points by GirlFriday (17435) 5 years ago

Oh, shut the fuck up. We are all aware of your douchiness in support of the most heinous trolls. Jeremy is a PR firm. You are nothing more than a desperate piece of shit that has done nothing more than support a hell of a lot of trolls, cater to conspiracy theorists and be a general asshat.

hchcadvertising.com is not a pr firm. Its really not much of anything besides me doing some projects for some small businesses. Everyone can go there and find out for themselves. If it was more successful, perhaps I wouldnt be doing odd jobs like painting houses to make some extra cash.

Don't get me wrong, I like marketing. I like sitting down with people and figuring out a way to help them. I like creating fun ways to advertise for them. I like setting up partnerships, finding good causes to support, etc. And honestly, its part of the reason why Im good at the independent political organizing/actions- we've done some really fun and cool stuff. That and the fact Ive been through a lot of shit from the age of 15- well, lets see... prob about 3 years ago life finally started to make a shred of sense to me (I'm 33 now).

Is there anything else you would like to know?

[-] -2 points by GirlFriday (17435) 5 years ago

You campaigned on this forum heavily for whom?

Rewriting history does not work well for you, idiot.

[-] 0 points by JGriff99mph (507) 5 years ago

Who Rocky Anderson? Campaigning heavily? Come one, I respected this site and kept it off of it, despite some constant attempts to bring it up (like here for instance).

As far as campaigning- its tough when someone doesnt take more than $100 of donations. Everyone- myself- is doing it for free.

I'm all about creating change, and when election season comes around I'll do stuff for 3rd parties. Is it the most effective means? No. Is is almost giving the system validation? Yes. Do I do it because I think it may help to give some people who are on the edge the dose of reality they need to break from the lies? (The free and equal debate was a great eye opening experience for many who were watching). Yes.

Did we try to create a 3rd party platform speaking engagement at the RNC? Yes. Would I have appreciated Gary Johnson speaking there? Yes. Did I manage to get ahold of the Jill campaign and find Cheri was in town and get her in too? Yes. Nader being there would have been great too. Did they turn the entire city into a warzone and hence make it impossible? Yes.

Theres some more history for you. Anything else? I suppose as long as the conversation stays on me its not on you. Fine with me. I dont have anything to hide.

[-] 1 points by JGriff99mph (507) 5 years ago

I'm sorry to break this to you, but me posting a few videos and audio snippets from him is not campaigning, any more so than any other person I post videos on.

The fact you have this all ready and set to go at the drop of a dime is a bit disturbing though :)

And FActsRFun saying Im supporting Romney to start off a conversation is really stretching it. So am I suppose to stay 100% silent when accused of things that are false? Just say a simple no?

Listen, this entire thing of you attacking my posts and now me having to defend myself is the entire reason SafeWinter came on here and said this would be an absolutely horrible place to accomlish anything.

Personally, I think you are obsessed.

You're just another repeatedly banned multiple ID cockroach and your words are paid for. I know as does everyone else that you are lying through your teeth.

There is a special little place in hell for libertopian shills like you!

If you would like to participate join us or build your own actions.

No #OWS organizing happens here.

Ask ANY occupier who spent time actually occupying in person.

This is a forum which keeps all the trolls away from our actual trusted network.

Sorry you don't know that.

[-] 3 points by bullfrogma (448) 5 years ago

JGriff has a good point. This website is strategic. People interested in occupy come here because it is the most headquarter seeming website. This site, especially this forum, is a major turn off. That's why these people are overflowing it with trolls, it's strategic.

Occupy should have a website that's actually productive. Such as a forum for mass problem solving that's moderated based on categories. Something that isn't controlled by google (talk about evil).

[-] 2 points by JGriff99mph (507) 5 years ago

I am well aware of all of what you said. That being said, going forward, there isnt reason to think we cannot change that.

I'm hoping that the shuffling going around will include a re prioritization of this section, for organizing and local updates as opposed to everyone's own personal beliefs in their favorite and least liked politicians.

This domain name means something, and while traffic is certainly down everywhere (not just here), people not terribly familiar with what occupy was about/doing (prob around 90% of the nation) this will ultimately be one of the first place they check out.
