When you look at any populated area, you notice one thing, adds. Every highway has billboards, posters, and advertisements to buy their products or make you aware of something. Billions are spent every year on just this. Entire departments of corporations are dedicated to visually grabbing ads to get people to buy or think the way they want. They do this because it is effective and affects the subconscious of the masses. Today, the White nationalist movement cannot afford to rent billboards over every highway or put ads all over the trains, but we can cover their billboards with our slogans and post our ads and slogans on trains. This is street propaganda.
In modern times the average White goes through years of anti-white indoctrination from university campuses to Hollywood movies. In most places, indoctrination starts from their first years in school. Couple this with 24/7 propaganda with the systems unrelating campaign of censorship, and it’s no wonder so many of our race has succumbed to the cultural Marxist ideology becoming products of their environment. How can we expect someone to be a White nationalist when they have never been exposed to our ideas? when they don’t even know what it is?
This is why street propaganda is an invaluable tool in the active club’s arsenal. Many have written off-street propaganda as a waste of time that it doesn’t work. Of course, we are not naïve enough to believe that someone coming across a sticker will immediately see it transform his whole perception of the world. Instead, we seek to use street propaganda to insert our ideas that they may have never been exposed into their conscious. Plant seeds of ideas and truth all over, and like in nature, not every seed sprouts a plant, but when they do, that plant will carry on the cycle.
One only needs to look back at history as a testament to the success of this tactic. If it were genuinely ineffective, its use wouldn’t be a staple throughout the ages. One of the earliest recordings was 80bc with a civil war in Rome between generals Marius and Sulla. After General Marius died, sulla sought to erase his name from the book of history. Still, supporters of his faction took to the streets in the cover of night, spreading pamphlets of the deeds and name of Marius, which was punishable by death. One incident recorded was when they painted Marius’s name in front of the Roman senate building, reigniting civil unrest and skirmishes between supporters of the two factions. The fact that historians even bothered to note this and that it survived the records till now is a testament to what a revolutionary act it can be. Other examples would be the French revolution that without the printing press and distribution of pamphlets would have never occurred. In more recent years, the Third Reich, with its iconic posters and pamphlets, conveyed nationalism socialism ideals into well-thought-out inspiring propaganda. In Russia during the red revolution, most of the Russian population were uneducated peasants and farmers and never have read the communist manifesto a day in their lives. Still, they saw the simple banners that hung from buildings reading “peace bread and land” that tricked them into taking up the Bolshevik’s cause. The point is street propaganda in all its forms has been used during every revolution and conflict, making it a staple in history.
