The Truth About NATLFED

32 Years Since The Raid

Wow, people are still talking about it as if it happened yesterday.  The “date” February 15, 1984 was when the group was going for it.  That’s right, the ultimate in progressive change was about to happen.  But it didn’t.  Not the fifteenth, not the sixteenth…

The Raid happened on the seventeenth.  How did it happen?  The Old Man had one of his loyal cadre call the FBI on the Organization.  Say what?  Yup, he most certainly did.  Everything was falling apart, something had to happen, bing, bang, boom, someone call the feds and raid.

We’re not going to rehash the raid stories.  That’s been done time and time again.  We all know the Old Man tried getting out using the dumbwaiter and some dumb ass didn’t fix the ladder while another dumb ass blocked the exit door with a fifty gallon drum full of flour or something.  Blah, blah.  No one really gives a crap.  It’s ancient history.  Hell, only a handful of the current cult leaders were at NOC when it happened.

Since the anniversary is in a few days, we’re mentioning it because it has relevance to a small grouping of persons (funny, mostly to persons not in the group any longer).  As with any grouping that suffered a burn from setting a date, the Organization abandoned the setting of future such dates.  Yup, keep it nice and vague, someday it will happen.

Some will choose to discuss it within private forums dedicated to discussing the group because anniversary dates impact survivors.  We’re talking more than this particular anniversary, but in the scheme of things it is kind of a bigger one.  They’ll poke fun at how the group is dying, not really doing anything except handing out a few dented cans as food distributions to members, that sort of thing.  Some might reminisce.  It was a long time ago.  Most of the folks directly involved are dead, infirmed, aged, otherwise incapacitated by a number of things.

As for the current insiders, we can’t speak to what they’re thinking or planning.  We don’t even know for sure if it’s something they want to remember or discuss.  Those who work at the front organizations will pretty much open the doors, ask for donations, try to recruit volunteers, maybe line up a couple of speaking engagements, etc.

The build up to the “date” was greatly hyped.  When it all fell apart, many left in droves disillusioned by it all.  Some stayed, believing it was a temporary condition, but eventually parted ways.  Here to win, here to stay…they certainly managed the staying part but the winning…

We don’t expect discussion on this topic but if you’re interested just drop a note.
