guerrillas unite

Guerrilla Girls, [no title], from Guerrilla Girls Talk Back, 1985–’90

Porter Rockwell

Quite possibly one of the most interesting men to have ever served in the quarm of the seventy within The Church Of Jesus Christ Of Latter Day Saints. (Aka: Mormons.)

His legends and repute as a gunslinger has put his kill count far beyond that of any other famous cowboy to have walked the states of America. It is also shown from great research of the official history about the man that he never killed wantonly. (Though much anti-Mormon printers would eagerly claim otherwise.)

For those who are interested in the story of a saint who was given strength like Samson from the Bible and looked like a mountain man, I would recommend you turn your eyes to the book 

“Porter Rockwell A Biography” Written and researched by Richard Lloyd Dewey.

It very rarely dwells upon spiritual matters and instead follows a man devoted to his religion who had a kind heart but very cold hands to his enemies. A legendary lawman.

IF THIS IS NOT ENOUGH TO CONVINCE YOU, HE LED A GUERRILLA WAR ON A UNITED STATES ARMY SENT TO ATTACK THE MORMONS

AND WON

AGAINST THOUSANDS OF SOLDIERS WHO HAD CALVARY AND ARTILLERY, WITH THE HELP OF LESS THEN ONE HUNDRED PEOPLE.

HE WON WITHOUT KILLING A SINGLE PERSON.

HE COST THE UNITED STATES MULTIPLE MILLIONS OF DOLLARS FROM BURNING MULTIPLE SUPPLY WAGON CONVOYS. AND ALL OF THE INFORMATION IS KEPT IN THE BOOK I MENTIONED.

THIS BOOK IS AMAZING.

I HAVE NEVER BEEN SO PULLED IN BY HISTORY BEFORE IN MY LIFE

Sorry for the spam notification. but I just really want to share this with ya’ll.

EDIT:
THE SECOND HALF OF THE BOOK IS NOTHING BUT NEWS CLIPPINGS AND THE FULL SOURCES FROM WHICH HE MADE THE BOOK. EVERYTHING IS EVEN SOURCED BY CHAPTER, YOU CAN SEE THE FULL STORY FROM EVERY QUOTATION IN THE BOOK.

Hera and Kanan together, heading up Alliance Black Ops and espionage. In the field and behind the controls. A guerrilla mobile unit infiltrating and subverting the Empire in a thousand tiny ways; they may not have been in the fray at the battle of Yavin, but without their intel the Death Star would never have been brought down.

They are the Ghost Unit, and little more than a rumour even within the alliance. Even as they grew in importance they were always on the move, melting into the blackness of space after every brush with the Empire.

I heard one of them took on an Inquisitor single-handed.
I heard they’re a secret Jedi sect.
i heard they have a squadron of purple of and orange TIE fighters they stole from Lord Vader himself.
I heard that Twi’lek is the one on the recruitment posters.

Meeting with fellow cells - perhaps rare journeys to the Rebel HQ - they remain an unknown, questions surrounding them as they are warmly greeted by the normally distant Fulcrum. The young Alderaanian Princess seeing her father greet this scruffy, ragtag looking crew with the deepest of respect, seeing the love they share amongst themselves and learning not to judge based on appearances. There a sense - a familiar sense - that surrounds the tall one that isn’t the leader. But she can’t quite pin it down, sitting at the edge of her mind.

A single tiny ship, how could they help against the gargantuan might of the Empire?

The brightly dressed young woman teaching tired, cynical rebels about effective ammunition, and the joy of colour theory.

A lasat standing out and above in a sea of practical orange and white, leading self-defence classes, emphasis on how to bash a ‘trooper’s head just so (perhaps a certain princess shows up at a few too many of these lessons).

The blue-haired one, slightly uncanny, knowing how to infiltrate any and every base, facility and larder. No one ever sees him come into briefings, but he’s always met with eyerolls from his crew.

Rebel droids suddenly having far too much attitude and a whole new sub-binary language, and hey, someone stop that orange astromech.

The exact number of ships in Ghost Unit are unknown - there’s that day-glo TIE fleet rumour, but that has to be nonsense. The number of operatives have to be endless, they’ve been everywhere, they’ve done everything. They must be an army unto themselves.

But the Spectres know that the Ghost is the heart and is home and is freedom. They’re not a unit, they’re a family.

And Hera’s the best damn pilot in the Alliance.

Exercise Robin Sage is a month-long training exercise focused on blending in in a foreign land and training guerrilla units to liberate their country. Seems pretty tame so far, but surprisingly, not many countries are really down with the whole “let a hundred American troops run around and stir up rebellion in our country for a month” idea. So America decided to simply create its own country to train in. Welcome to the Republic of Pineland, baby!

The People’s Republic of Pineland is an entirely fictional country created for one purpose: to put the USASF through their paces. And when we say it’s a fictional “country,” we’re including the people – the residents are straight up part of the mission. The cities and towns within the 15 counties that comprise the training zone actively participate in the month-long training, with its citizens posing as citizens of “Pineland” in a vast, government-funded, open-air role playing game.

People there take on a large variety of roles, from doctors and shop owners right down to one guy who has to torture other citizens before being killed in a final showdown with the soldiers. They even carry two sets of ID and have their own currency, with an exchange rate and everything. They don’t stop their normal jobs, either – the guy whose job it is to pretend to be a torturer is also a volunteer firefighter in his spare time.
