Should Bloggers Initiate Email Campaigns?

DP111:

We in the West have become so comfortable in our way of life, that we have lost all sense of who we are, i.e., a community of like minded people. I mean hear, not as a racial group, or even a religious group, but as like minded people who have a common set of principles. In other words, though we share such principles, we have become atomised as a society. This makes us vulnerable to intimidation and attack by wolves. The sheep dogs who should protect us, follow orders from people who have no real liking for us, except as tax payers, ie treat us as sheep. I'm not surprised. So no matter how many there are of us - as sheep, we are fearful of the wolves, and timid and paralysed in front of them.

Now look at the bloggers themselves - there is no unity of purpose or action here. They operate individually, with no power to raise a storm except in the blogosphere. OTH, look at islamic web sites. They can raise a storm of emails to politicians, letters to the media, and muslim spokesmen appearing on TV, presenting their Taqqiya. This, from recent immigrants to the West. Anything like that from our side, even though we are 95% or more of the population, and pay for it all as well? Is it then a surprise that our politicians, national and in the EU, are terrified of muslims? Of course they are terrified. They are terrfied of a few wolves, as naturally they should, but are not worried in the least of millions of sheep.

But we are not sheep! What if we became more vociferous? As a first step, we in the blogosphere, need to organise our actions, so that we coordinate a campaign of emails and letters to politicians, indicating our absolute outrage at the concessions being granted to a killing cult, which islam is. So as a first step, we need to form a pan-European alliance of like minded bloggers, from East to West Europe. If this is moderately successful, then politicians will themselves be more hestitant to acquisce to muslim demands. The second stage can then be considered. Gates of Vienna has proposed a "swarming" idea, but we need one in Europe for specifically European concerns, to which European politicians are susceptible.

Something has to be done.


I have considered starting email campaigns myself, especially regarding the rape issue in my own country. I have sent some emails on a strictly personal basis, but have so far refrained from doing anything more than that. I've been a little concerned that a campaign to generate massive amounts of emails could be considered spam, and would hurt the image of my blog.

However, as DP111 points out, Muslims have no such qualms, and readily send out thousands of emails over even minor issues. Am I just being too polite? Should I try to start an email campaign over this issue, directed at both journalists and politicians?

No just yes, but hell yes.
Failure to let elected officials know of your displeasure leaves you as sheep before the alter, the Islamic alter.

Yes, by all means.

People need information in order to make correct decisons.

If they aren't getting the data they need, circumvent the roadblocks and make sure they are informed.

Knowledge is power. That is why this information is being hidden, it is politically explosive.

I'll have to agree with every one here. Consider one thing though, if no one listens, then your equivalent of the second amendment will have to be dusted off and put back to use.

I would suggest setting up a new site - eg. norwegiancampaigns.org / norwegiancause.org (some such name) - this would be devoted entirely to open issues related to Norway - with two columns - one for currently open campaigns and one for successful campaigns. (Similarly one for EuropeanCampaigns etc.)

Another section in the site would raise petitions on important issues. The site could also list email addresses of media, other organizations and people.

This would also separate it from your blog so people who do not completely agree with you on everything would still find it approachable and could send emails on individual issues they agree with.

Since the site is separate you could get others to help out - so less time spent.

Ik: It's not a bad idea. The catch is that I will probably soon take a long break from blogging, and putting up another site before I go into hibernation may not be the right thing to do.

If I do start a campaign, I would write a ready-made protest email in both English and Norwegian, and put up dozens of emails to politicians and journalists that you could send to.

Perhaps I should do a campaign for Sweden, too, where the situation is even worse. If I hook up with people in Sweden and Denmark, such a campaign could gain more clout.

Fjordman and ik:

Good ideas.

It is not just the blogg admnistrator who writes, we all need to write. The mail must come to politicians from all sides.

One also needs to compile a list of bloggers in Europe, country by country, with fairly similar inclinations, who will agree to this enterprise. Then some sort of coordination is necessary, so that a virtual storm is raised on a national or European level, as the case merits.

There happens to be a virtual storm blowing in the USA over the Flight 93 memorial. See

LGF

and

http://www.jihadwatch.org/dhimmiwatch/archives/008047.php#comments

Before generating a storm, one needs to carefully think over the issues, anticipate the response and think of rebuttals several steps in advance, much like chess player does. But that sort of thing is good fun anyway.

LGF memebers protests to politicians etc has been blunt and straightforward. The second link, Dhimmii watch, shows a tactical approach. There is no "good" approach, as both are necessary.

We need to do something besides posting on Blog sites.

This idea was first broached on the Gates of Vienna site, in response to a posting.

A call to Subversion

http://gatesofvienna.blogspot.com/2005/08/call-to-subversion.html

There are some ideas in the posts section, which are useful on the tactical level.

PS: Fjordman

Blogger "Mikkel" has this to write

What's needed now
The situation
In the short time that i've been blogging, i've come across many islam-sceptics who are informed but don't know what is to be done and thus feel quite gloomy in regards to the future of the west. Even as the numbers of bloggers have exploded and information thus gets out and about, there's no actual larger plan as to how to help the situation.

I believe he may well approve of a coordinated approach.

A Typical example of dhimmi behavior is the case if a young mother who wanted her husband to be with her in hospital for the impending birth of their child.This was refused by the hospital authorities because it would "offend Muslim women" in the same unit..(Daily Mail 10/9/05)...The British have accepted that they are a second class society subservient to the preferred and protected society of Islam. Islam is protected by the UK government at the expense of the British people and their culture.

pd111 and I have been talking of this for some time, we had similar discussions in Gates of Vienna.

The main problem is in bringing a dispirate group of people together.

Pd111 and I spoke today and I think a strategy is forming which could solve the problem, This strategy would also make bloggers aware of thier counterparts in other countries thus forging a communication network that actually communicates . I will keep you informed as no doubt will pd111
