In response to my post "Poseurs and provocateurs. Any stupid ass can call himself a Three Percenter, the proof is in the practice of principle," we now have this reply from Three Percent Empire builder Robert Trask (spelling and punctuation as in the original):
You men watch to much TV I've been 3% I'm a leader in Kentucky born Alabama offered to hel try to grow the group my number is 502-706-1632 why don't you be men and come to a man instead of posting bullshit you don't know anything about there's my number.
Well, Mr. Trask, I'm a bit busy at the moment and frankly completely uninterested in conversing with you on the phone. If I took the time to do so for every person who seems to have misunderstood the Three Percent concept I would get nothing else done. I will make the following observations.
1. Anyone who wants to "grow (their) group" two states away from where his ass is sitting by accepting help from any jackleg who "offers to help" is fairly begging to be laughed at. Because . . .
2. In any large, top-down organization (which you seem determined to have out of whatever motive that can only be guessed at -- failure to understand the nature of your enemy in a 4th Generation Warfare world; lack of imagination as to the probable negatives of such a move; misplaced enthusiasm at spreading an idea you apparently have failed to properly grasp; or, the simplest explanation, plain ego), personnel, my friend, is policy. If you read the post you take umbrage at, you should understand that your "help" presented himself as your representative with conduct that can be most charitably characterized as typical of a beer-swilling, pot smoking loose cannon.
That, sir, is not "bullshit (I) don't know anything about." I rather think the ignorance and the bullshit is the other way around. To use a phrase my Grandpa Vanderboegh taught me, "Son, don't try to teach your Grandma how to suck eggs." In over 20 years at this stuff, I've seen and heard it all before. You are merely the latest organizational empire builder I've run across, and not a very skillful one at that to judge from the conduct of your "help."
I urge you to rethink your principles in the light of my Three Percent Catechism. I also urge you to rethink your actions in building an "organization" that is so disorganized that you accept "help" from people who can only discredit you and the cause you claim to represent.
Thus endeth the lesson.
