Leaderless Resistance: Revisiting a Co-Opted Concept

In 1992, white supremacist and former KKK leader Louis Beam wrote an article for his fringe publication The Seditionist titled “Leaderless Resistance.” (We will not link to Beam’s work or to any of the sites that feature it.) Though the concept was not originally his, he popularized the idea and in doing so, he became inexorably linked with the phrase.  A simple web search shows that Beam’s name is as synonymous with that concept as the brand Kleenex is to facial tissue. Interestingly enough, leaderless resistance was initially designed by an intelligence officer to fight Communism. Beam simply co-opted and adapted the idea.

Team Tactics Course

TOWR presents the second in our tactical firearms courses: Team Tactics, meant for a two-person fire team. The focus is on acquiring skills and tactics in using firearms together to resolve confrontational deadly force situations. Topics include but are not limited to cover fire, movement and fire, and response to multiple threats. Since this is an advanced course, there is a strong emphasis placed on safety and safe handling of firearms in close confines and restricted space environments.  Again, this is not a course for the novice shooter.  It is, however, an excellent course to take with your spouse or battle buddy. Taught by the owner of Archer Defense Concepts, an Army combat veteran of many countries worldwide and a current law enforcement officer.

This class will be held at a remote location in the North Cascades and is weather dependent due to area access.

Coming Spring 2016.

 

Close Quarters Gunfighting Course

TOWR is pleased to sponsor the first of many tactical firearms courses we’ll be offering in 2016—Close Quarters Gunfighting, also known as Close Quarters Combat, or CQC. This course will take you into the realm of combat shooting, and is not for the firearms novice. It will serve as a solid foundation for shooters unfamiliar with CQC and a fantastic refresher for patriots who are already trained. Topics covered include:

  • Proactive and Reactive Manipulations
  • Shooting While Moving Off The X
  • Reality-Based Multiple Hostiles Engagement
  • 360 degree CQB Movement
  • Danger-Close Fighting
  • Bilateral Shooting
  • 360 degree After Action Assessment Methods
  • Integrating the Flashlight and Other Tools into the Firing Platform

The class will be taught by the owner of Archer Defense Concepts in Portland, OR.  He is a highly decorated combat veteran with an extensive resume in both the Army and law enforcement.

Coming in Spring 2016. Check out the event page for more information.

**Note: This course will be held in a remote area in the North Cascades. It is weather dependent for purposes of area access.**

Educate the Individual Patriot, Empower the Movement

The patriot movement is made up of a highly diverse demographic that, contrary to what the Southern Poverty Law Center would have you believe, spans races, socioeconomic classes and typical social divides. Oddly enough, these factors are not what end up dividing us, make us ineffective, or push our groups into disarray. While entire books could be written on the interpersonal dynamics that end up ruining groups and decimating the movement’s progress, the truth is that we can’t control the conduct of others.  What we can do as patriots is control our own actions, of course, but even more importantly,we can control our own education. 

That is what The Order of the White Rose is all about—the well-rounded, well-educated, well-trained individual patriot.
