Six Pony Hitch is not a band name like Three Dog Night. Six Pony Hitch is a Brand Strategy and Design Agency in Missoula, Montana.
24 hours ago I had never heard of Six Pony Hitch, but thanks to this Missoulian article, I now know Six Pony Hitch exists, and there is apparently some fall out over a racial research project. Also, this agency was involved in getting paid to help develop the Missoula Downtown Plan.
Before getting into all that, let’s look at how SPH describes itself. Here is a screen shot from their website:
Discovering order in seeming chaos sounds like either a globalist wet dream or a dungeons and dragons quest. Whatever you can pitch to local government for some govt cheese, I guess.
Meshayla Cox of the Montana Racial Equity Project isn’t down with this research, stating “That research that we’re wanting to do is just stalling a process that needs to just happen already”. She goes on to say “We don’t have to take the time to prove that our experiences are real.”
I agree with Cox, this is a stalling process. And further more, why has Six Pony Hitch inserted itself into this conversation, especially since they’ve had a previous business relationship with the city of Missoula?
Here’s more from the article:
Many members of the public, in addition to comments submitted to the City Council via email, said they did not support the proposal for the research project. The proposal came through Six Pony Hitch from a team of BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color) community members who include Wilena Old Person, Jamar Galbreath, Laurel Warner, Alex Kim, Ku’au Ahina, Brad Hall and also from Six Pony Hitch owner Spider McKnight, who is not BIPOC.
I was already having a hard time taking this brand strategy and design agency seriously with a name like Six Pony Hitch, but to expect me to further absorb the fact the person behind this thing has the name Spider McKnight? Come on, man, this is just to absurd.
How all this came about is further explained in the article:
A statement from Six Pony Hitch and LEARN Missoula read by Council President Bryan Von Lossberg stated that City Council reached out to Six Pony Hitch due to the firm’s status of being on the city’s preferred vendor list for communication and their work on the Downtown Master Plan.
Do you see the con going on here? Do you see the perpetrators of NEWSPEAK selling their wares?
I am glad to know more of the names of the players suckling government largesse and eagerly exploiting racial injustice, and I am glad they have names like Spider McKnight and Six Pony Hitch.
If you ever need the ponies to come to your rescue, here’s more about what they can do for you:
Whether we are helping you launch a new company onto the international stage, retooling branding gone wrong, solving internal communications and operations issues, or even creating new products, we can help you tackle the most difficult of issues.
Ok, Pony, you got systemic racism during a global pandemic. How much will that cost to “fix”? Asking for a broke-ass college town.
