How can we help the patriotic movements in America and Europe if we can’t show our faces or real names?
This is a question I get asked a lot. A lot of us, unfortunately, have a lot to lose. Be it job, family, or other reasons, there are thousands of people who want to do more as activists, but feel pigeonholed by their anonymity.
There are many ways you can support the movement and get behind it even if you can’t be a public figure yourself. You have the power to make a difference and an impact – no matter what situation you are in personally.
Here’s a few ideas.
First, throw your support behind popular figures in the movement. This can be as simple as sharing their tweets, posting their content on social media, or subscribing to their Youtube accounts. You can use their content as a catalyst for change by sharing the links directly with those close to you – and being able to answer their inevitable questions does not hurt! Reach out and let your favourite voices know that you appreciate what they are doing – and that it is making a difference in the movement and in your life personally.
Second, you can throw your support behind those figures and groups leading the way in the movement by backing them financially. You can donate to Patreons, send super chats when they have a Youtube livestream, or purchase their books and other content. You can subscribe to their paid-subscriber content or for other services they offer. Sometimes, you can use them for services you need done outside of politics! For example, if you know someone is in the movement and they offer a service or a good you need, buy there first. Many content creators have multiple jobs to make the money to spread their message. Financial help goes a long way. Those who are publicly fighting within the patriot movement often rely on crowd funding of some sort in order to be able to continue their work.
Third, volunteer or offer your goods and services. If you’re a party planner help them organize a long event, if you’re a carpenter help build the stage and podium the speakers need to stand on. Volunteer for your local GOP of within local organizations that you feel safe with. Flyer schools and neighborhoods with political or cultural flyers, do leaflet drops in strategic areas. Work behind the scenes for youtubers and content creators by helping edit videos, keeping books, running their social media accounts or just doing general day to day administrative tasks for them so they can focus on their work.
Supporting our local content creators and our patriots in the movement financially, through our time and skills or through sharing their content through social media makes all the difference and helps amplify our message and widen our audience.
As a movement, we are only as good as our people and we will only go as far as we push ourselves. It is imperative that we work together to achieve the goals we have set out to achieve within the greater conservative movement. If you aren’t able to join the fight publicly, I strongly encourage you to put your weight behind those who can and do because every share, every dollar, every hour and every like matters.
If you don’t have anything to lose by backing those who do, make a commitment to pushing the movement forward and get behind your thought leaders and those on the ground fighting the fight.
