OK! So, I'm getting up to stuff again. I posted a video the other day about an advertisement that came to me from a job board I use for the position of "activist." The curiosity is killing me. I have a lot of questions, and I decided I am getting those questions answered.
I have, in fact, filled out the application to attend the activist training, and someone has been in contact with me. As of this posting, I do not yet have the "official" application and have not been told I can attend. But I am trying.
Now, because I stirred up some stuff at YouTube, I want to clarify why I am doing this. I am not doing this to troll this protest group. I am genuinely curious about what is going on here. To be honest with you all, trolling is not my thing. I know a lot of people do it, and a lot of people make a lot of money doing it, but it isn't my thing. I don't plan to disrupt the event, I don't plan to troll the attendees. I am planning to dress in the business casual they suggest and I am going to be respectful of all of this... because I do, in fact, respect that other people have opposing views to my own.
My reasons for attending are to find out:
Basically, if you are following this whole thing and are excited about it, I appreciate that. But if you're hoping for some big blow out and epic trolling you are going to be very disappointed. You will, however, get an honest look inside all of this, if I manage to make it through the process and get in. And if there is some huge revelation or something, obviously I'll be letting you know.
I am still figuring out the logistics. Please be aware, I am only one person. I don't make any money doing any of this, so I can't hire a staff. Any audio or video I am able to get will be through my cell phone. And, to be honest, I've never done anything like this before. So don't expect it to be Project Veritas or anything along those lines. It's going to be "average blogger with a cell phone and some questions." But we'll get the answers we want as best as I can get them.
For updates, you can either come here or hit my Minds page. The next update to all of this will, obviously, be whether or not I got in. So, fingers crossed!
