A corollary is that we form a negative opinion of you when you fail to meet the expectation and especially when you become cross with us for your inability to operate without causing confusion, drama, or general annoyance for the Party people you're talking to. (If it's not obvious already, this post has been prompted by a mildly aggressive inquiry from someone who didn't do so well for themselves. EDIT: This is the appearance of the situation, at least. Who knows? We may have the first case of a genuine mail failure on our hands.)
The contact process (from my segment on RFN #150 at http://northwestfront.org/2012/12/radio ... -6th-2012/):
Observe the emphasis I've added to my script. You are expected to request an Introduction Packet and you are expected to actually receive it. Above all else, this means you have to come clean about your identity to at least one of us. If you're not ready to do that, you're not ready for a face-to-face meeting or any of the other things that come along with our politics. I spent two weeks getting over my case of heebie jeebies before I coughed up my contact information. That was well over two years ago now and I haven't been tortured in Gitmo or whisked off to a CIA castle in Romania even once. I migrated and wouldn't you know it? I didn't get scooped up in an FBI raid when I met Mr. Covington for the first time (or any time after that). If you're not ready to use a real name, we can't get you a packet. If you're not ready to be brave enough to get paper mail from us, we tend to lose interest very quickly.The first thing someone needs to do is read everything they can at the Party website, especially the Butler Plan and the draft Northwest American Republic Constitution. There is the possibility that some hearing this might not be aware of the Northwest Front, so the Party website is northwestfront.org, all one word.
Once you're done with the website content, find the Q&A Radio Free Northwest podcast episode. It's RFN #35, dated September 23, 2010. It's two hours long, but it's the best listening we can offer someone new, or even someone who's been with us a while but hasn't gone that far back in the podcast (which you should all do at the first available opportunity). If you're more or less on-board with the idea of a sovereign, all-white nation in the Pacific Northwest, use the contact page of the Party website to request an introduction packet. We'll need your real name and an address you receive mail to. If you can't work up the courage to provide us that, you're not going to get a packet since there's a fair chance it won't be delivered to a fake name.
While waiting for your introduction packet from the Party, get your hands on at least one of the Northwest Independence novels. I recommend The Brigade despite its length since it is the most comprehensive demonstration of the concept of significant white resistance. If you're in doubt, read the first chapter since it's a real kick. If you're unable to buy the books, get in touch with someone from the Party and we'll email you PDF copies, though you'll likely have to read them on a computer monitor. It can be done; it's how I read all the novels for the first time.
Once you get your introduction packet, pour over it with a special focus on The Fourth Edition Northwest Migration Manual, or The Whitebook. This is the latest version of such a manual and can be ordered separately at Lulu.com. Nearly everything I'm going to say from here on out is found in that book, which is why the Party has to periodically repeat such content and direct those interested individuals to such sources. We're not at all unhappy to handle genuinely important and serious questions, but the same things keep coming up at a more and more rapid pace. Not only that, but some of these inquiries, innocently to be sure, imply we have some sort of secret we only dispense to those who ask about it. We don't. We don't have an inside angle on jobs and we don't have a magic bullet for the migration. I know our questioners don't mean to make such implications, but understand me here: the answers you're looking for are in The Whitebook. Once you're done listening to this RFN, pick up a copy and read it. Twice. It will fill you in on everything you want to know.
Back to the lesson. After you've got the packet, plan your migration and put it into practice. It will take some time done right, so read the rest of the Northwest Independence novels and listen to the rest of RFN, even just for the entertainment value, though that's not all there is to it by a long shot. Also, get rid of your cable (or satellite, or whatever) television. You never needed it and it will distract you and cost you money you need to save for migration costs. If you've gotten to this point and you're still interested, you need to contact the Party about your $10 per month dues. Many of us give more, but the way things are going, we've got little right to ask for more from most people. Movements run on people, their time, and their money, and we've got to be honest about it.
Despite appearances, this isn't even a personal problem with you. These things happen from time to time and we don't actually have much recourse except to decide you weren't interested enough to be honest with us. At the very least, please own up to the fact that you cost the Party money and there was no ROI on the back end of the transaction.
If you honestly think there's been some mistake, have the guts to say so right off the bat and above all else, you're welcome not to blame us when it's pretty obvious you're at fault. Are there cases where something causes the mail system to screw up? Sure, but they're rare and the individuals in question start to act up right about the time we start to suspect somebody wasn't straight-up with us. The packet isn't a letter-size item, though it will fit in a mailbox. It's paper, so it's not going to set off any alarms. Getting a packet isn't a (real) risk unless someone actually opens your mail and reads it.
Alright, with all that off my chest, I'll have to ask everyone to understand that we're not really asking a lot and I've personally instituted a No Packet? No Meeting! policy since we're not a social outfit and we're not here to be your racist chit-chat buddies. We can be that, but it happens by accident and isn't our primary purpose. I fully understand some might not be ready for the sort of contact we need, but this means we're not ready to meet you either and it's not because you're a bad person. If you can't get an Intro packet and read through it, there's a good chance you might not understand what we're really about. If this misunderstanding exists through to a face-to-face, you might very well feel roped-in to something you don't want. Sure, that's not our fault, but it's a real issue.
Is there something about this I've failed to make clear?
