The Gainsville Three and Following the Rules

As a movement, we don’t have very many rules.

Most of our rules are actually just pieces of advice.

However, two of the biggest hard rules are these:

  1. Do not bring guns to events
  2. Do not talk to the police

The three guys arrested on Thursday, Tyler Tenbrink and William and Colton fears, did both of these things.

Insanely, they are being charged with “attempted homicide” and media is reporting – without the use of “alleged” – that the single shot they fired was intended to kill someone.

I believe they were acting in self defense, and I believe it is nuts to suggest otherwise.

But that doesn’t really matter, does it?

You see how that doesn’t matter?

How the facts don’t matter?

How if you’re on the right, you can never, in any politically-charged situation, defend yourself with a gun, or they’re going to accuse you of murder?


This “no guns” rule was not some arbitrary thing we made up because we just don’t like guns. We created that rule because we know what happens in these situations.

In America 2017, there is no situation where a white male, who identifies as far right, can defend himself with a deadly weapon in the context of a politically-charged confrontation and not be charged with murder or attempted murder.

That situation simply does not exist (other than on private property, and not always even then).

That is why we have a no gun rule.

On top of that, these guys doubled-down on rule-breaking and talked to the cops, making this entire situation exponentially worse. They wouldn’t already have these “attempted murder” charges – and possibly never would have ended up with them at all – if they had said “I want to talk to a lawyer.”

So, in my view, they should not get any movement money until every other political prisoner is out.

I know they are innocent of any actual wrongdoing (other than felon with a gun, which is already a pretty serious crime), but they created this situation for themselves.

I have no desire to be the “I TOLD YOU SO” guy.

I would much rather have just told you so and had you all listen to me – but that’s not what happened.

These three decided to go rogue, thinking they knew better than me, weev and the other voices in the movement who know what they’re talking about when they set down rules, and now they’re in a situation.

And they’re also putting us in a situation.

Other than the fact that some of our guys might get called into a grand jury over this (not that big of a deal, but still sucks), they are going to use this to say that “Richard Spencer supporters are violent.”

We all know that we are not the violent ones. The point is that that point is moot.

Right now, the public image is that we roll into town and just start chaos.

And yes, I understand that the media is going to lie. But we do have the ability to make it so there is less for them to lie about.

That is why I told you all to not go to the protest zone on campus and to instead stage demos across the city – because that way we would get the message out there without anyone “confronting” antifa.

This is the deal: there is no “confronting” that we look good after – either we lose and look like fags (rare) while they do not get punished or we win and are charged with crimes.

I’m Sure It was a Nice White Cop They Talked To

If you watch this video, which you all are supposed to have watched at least a few time –

– you will note that the cop talks about getting a rapist nigger talking by saying “she was pretty hot, huh?”

I can pretty well guarantee that these guys confessed to a white cop who came in and said: “you know, my family is in the KKK, so I understand where you guys are coming from” – or whatever. Plus, I would be certain: “you know, we know that the antifa were the ones trying to start trouble and you guys were just acting in self-defense – we’re just trying to get to the bottom of this so we can let you boys go home. We’ve got your buddy on the firearm charge, but if you help us out here, we’re gonna try to get him out as fast as possible and let him come back and appear before a judge.”

They are allowed to lie to you.

And I guarantee you, these three guys know the Alt-Right rule about not talking to cops, and they had maybe even watched that video – but they thought “well, we know we’re innocent, we should be able to explain this, and this cop seems cool, so let’s just tell the truth.”

Now they’ve got attempted murder charges for a warning shot.

And yes: we have guys in law enforcement, and more are coming to our side every day. Sure.

But the system of law enforcement is still ZOG and not a single one of them is ever going to say “I can help you if you talk to me.”

Any of our guys are going to say “watch what you say” or “remember your Miranda warning.”

And you should remember the Miranda:

  • You have the right to remain silent and refuse to answer questions.
  • Anything you say may be used against you in a court of law.
  • You have the right to consult an attorney before speaking to the police and to have an attorney present during questioning now or in the future.
  • If you cannot afford an attorney, one will be appointed for you before any questioning if you wish.
  • If you decide to answer questions now without an attorney present, you will still have the right to stop answering at any time until you talk to an attorney.
  • Knowing and understanding your rights as I have explained them to you, are you willing to answer my questions without an attorney present?

The answer is always “no.”

If they ask more questions, the answer remains “no.”

No, no, no, no, no.

I remember a situation as a teenager – nothing racial or anything like that, but just a situation with cops where the cop said to me “remember, you don’t have to answer any questions.”

If the cop is asking questions, he’s not your friend.


Everyone knows that it’s hard to sit in a room by yourself for hours on end, have someone come and try to talk to you and not talk back. That is part of being human, this need to be in communication with other humans. So you have to prepare yourself for it.

Those are the rules.

That’s It

When everyone from Charlottesville – guys who followed the rules and still got arrested – is out of jail, then we can maybe think about doing a fund for these rule-breakers.

Until then, however, I’m going to put first the guys who followed the rules.

Right now, Cantwell is still in jail, and his fund isn’t filled-up.

So donate to him.


And let this be a message to all of you: I always support our guys.

You know that about me.

Every time, I support our guys.

And I have supported Tyler Tenbrink and the Fears Brothers, in that I have stated the obvious fact of what happened – they fired a warning shot because antifa were going to attack them – after they attacked their car – and antifa waited 5 hours before calling the cops, meaning they called up Jewish lawyers and made up a fake story.

I am putting that out there, as it is the obvious truth of this event.

But if you blatantly and purposefully break the rules that I and others have laid down for these rallies, you are going to be last in line for any form of financial support.

So remember this, when you’re packing for a rally and thinking you want to be an individualist and bring a gun, or when you get arrested and you think the cop seems like a cool guy you can talk to.

People might understand, and they will tell your side of the story, but a lot of people – like me – are going to be pissed off that you put yourself above the movement because you wanted to be a unique individual who breaks the rules and harmed yourself and our movement out of selfishness and a lack of an ability to follow orders.

So, I hate to be an after school special here, but there’s a lesson for all of you, which it is important that you learn and learn quickly:


We are not necessarily geniuses, but we are people who have thought this through, and gotten together with others, done research, and drawn conclusions based on probable outcomes.

Hopefully, this situation will be used as a learning experience, and you will not only never bring a gun or talk to cops, but also understand that other things that we tell you we are telling you because we have your best interests and the best interests of the movement in mind.

And the time is now to begin self-policing not just yourself but people you know, in your circles or groups. If someone brings a gun to an event, or even talks about doing it, you need to dissociate from them and tell others to dissociate from them.

We are in serious business land here, people. And we need to be serious. We cannot play games.

The ability to be a hard man, capable of using a weapon when necessary, is no greater a character trait than being a straight man, capable of following orders. You are not somehow more hardcore because you have a gun, or shoot a gun, when you’ve explicitly been told not to. You are just reckless and a danger to yourself and others.

Of course, I support learning how to use weapons, I support owning weapons, I support getting a CCW and legally carrying in your day-to-day life.

But right-wing rallies are not the place.

Just don’t do it.
