This UNC Professor is part of a far-left militia group

Posted on March 7, 2018 in The Extreme Left

It appears Dwayne Dixon, the far-left militia member who teaches anthropology at the University of North Carolina, is in the news again. This time a video has surfaced in which he is seen telling his students that he confronted Charlottesville Unite The Right attendee, James Fields, with a loaded semi-automatic rifle, which some have speculated was the catalyst for James to speed through the crowd killing Heather Heyer.

Professor Dixon was recently featured in a story from from ABC Australia in which they profiled him as a leader in the militia group, Redneck Revolt. As we have previously reported, Redneck Revolt is a far-left militia group with over 30 branches nationwide and until recently they offered a downloadable 36 page guerrilla warfare manual on their website that included sections on kidnapping, sabotage, terrorism, and executions.

 




If you are a student or the parent of a student at the University of North Carolina and the presence of a professor who is part of a violent militia group makes you feel unsafe we encourage you to express your concerns to the University of North Carolina. You can submit a formal complaint or contact dean Kevin Guskiewics directly at asdean@unc.edu or 919.962.3082.

Three violent far-left groups that get a pass from the SPLC

Posted on March 1, 2018 in The Extreme Left

It was recently reported and confirmed that the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) has been tapped to join YouTube’s Trusted Flagger Program, which was developed to help YouTube police “extremist content”. This is concerning, and for many reasons. There has been extensive reporting on the SPLC playing fast and loose with their designations of  “hate group” and “extremist” from Politico, Bloomberg, the New York Times, and many others. One of worst consequences of their politically motivated “hate group” designations was the 2012 domestic terrorist attack on the Family Research Council headquarters. The shooter, Floyd Lee Corkins II, who said he hoped to “kill as many as possible” later told the FBI he was motivated by the SPLC’s rhetoric and even used their “Hate Map” to locate his target.

So far, most of the criticism directed towards the SPLC has focused on the individuals and organizations that they HAVE labeled as “extremists “or “hate groups”. I want to instead  highlight a few overtly violent extremist organizations that they HAVE NOT labeled as “extremists” or “hate groups”.

Redneck Revolt

Redneck Revolt is a self described “above ground militant formation” that claims to have 30+ vetted branches nationwide. Since their inception, Redneck Revolt has been very busy recruiting at gun shows and community eventsadvocating for class war, and conducting armed anti-Trump demonstrations. But what’s most alarming are the resources they provide on their website. They promote several PDFs that endorse “armed struggle” and even offered a 36 page “Mini-Manual Of The Urban Guerrilla” (this was later removed after our original reporting) which pictures left-wing militants using RPGs and outlines tactics for guerrilla warfare including sections on “sabotage”, “kidnapping”, “executions”, “armed propaganda”, and “terrorism”.

REDNECKREVOLT

Guerrilla Warfare

Has Redneck Revolt been labeled an extremist group by the SPLC? Has a lengthy profile on their members been circulated through legacy media? Should they worry their YouTube, Facebook, or Twitter content will be removed? Well, according to the SPLC, the answer is no. In fact the only time this organization shows up at all on the SPLC website is in their “Hatewatch Headlines” in which they link to three favorable articles.

Red Guards Austin

Red Guards Austin is a Marxist-Leninist-Maoist militia group based in Austin, TX. Their website contains multiple reports on their confrontational and often armed demonstrations. They also actively recruit students at the University of Texas, where the hold weekly “self-defense” training via their student front group, Revolutionary Student Front.

They also openly advocate for violent revolution against capitalism:

Austin Red Guard 3

“we must seriously take up the task not only of self-defense on the personal and community level, but we must also struggle to unite all genuine antifascists behind the necessity of revolution.  Revolution means the long fight for communism and nothing less.”

I’ll ask the same questions. Has this organization been labeled an extremist group by the SPLC? Has a lengthy profile on their members been circulated through legacy media? Should they worry their YouTube, Facebook, or Twitter content will be removed? The answer again is a resounding no.

Revolutionary Abolitionist Movement

Revolutionary Abolitionist Movement (RAM) is another armed far-left group that holds routine training workshops at their Brooklyn, NY branch designed to recruit and radicalize a new generation of revolutionaries. These include an “Introductory Class” a “Legal Training” workshop, an “Introduction To Anarchism” class, and even an “Our Enemies in Blue” anti-police workshop.

Final Main image

They even launched a national “Deface Columbus Day” campaign via YouTube and Twitter where they encouraged antifa cells all over the country to vandalize and deface property. This organization has also somehow managed to evade the “extremist” or “hate group” designation of the SPLC.

So why are these armed extremist organizations not mentioned by the SPLC? How is it that an extremist watchdog organization with over $30M in operating funds, four state offices, and over 200 employees keeps dropping the ball on combating  extremism that comes from the left? The SPLC is either the worst steward of the millions of dollars that are donated to them each year or they are deliberately choosing to give far-left extremist groups a pass. We reached out to the SPLC for comment but have not yet received a response.

If the SPLC’s track record of clear ideological bias when designating groups or individuals as “extremist” is any indication of how they will operate as a member of YouTube’s Trusted Flagger program, then there is zero doubt they will abuse that role. If YouTube is serious about combating extremism on their platform and not just policing conservative voices they should follow the lead of the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Department of Defense and drop the SPLC.

LA Communist group doxed and threatened someone for supporting ICE

Posted on February 25, 2018 in The Extreme Left

We recently reported on far-left extremist activity being organized by the Austin Red Guards and their proxy group Revolutionary Student Front at the University of Texas -Austin. Shortly after that report was published we received an anonymous tip regarding similar activity in Los Angeles.

As it turns out, there is a similar cell operating in Los Angeles,  Red Guards Los Angeles (RGLA). Just like the Red Guards Austin, they are students of the communist mass murder Mao Zedong, they openly call for revolutionary violence, and their core membership appears to organize under a few different banners; Serve the People – LA and Defend Boyle Heights.

On February the 8th someone with the Twitter handle @RickFromLA1979 posted a video he recorded of a demonstration organized by the far-left group, Defend Boyle Heights. In this video, he appeared to suggest that the person whose wrongful death they were protesting, Jesse Romero, had a gun. He also jokingly said “shoot them” talking about the protesters.

In response to this video, Serve the People – LA, a militant communist group that works closely with the Red Guards Los Angeles (RGLA) shared a screen capture of his full video, followed by his picture saying “The face of an enemy of the people. A pro-pig, sexist, homophobic, enemy.”, and then started contacting his employer in order to get him fired with this call to action “This trash should be dealt with here and now, send in messages and calls. sincerely asking why this ICE supporting, stalking and recording women, and ‘jokingly’ calling for death is tolerated?”. He ended up deleting his Twitter account that same day but the targeted harassment did not stop there.

On Friday, the 23rd of February Serve The People – LA posted an image that someone allegedly sent to them that showed graffiti outside of Sunfare, his employer, that said “Snitches Get Stitches” and “watch the fuck out” along with multiple pictures of him.

Here is the full thread from their twitter account:

Naturally, the RGLA enthusiastically shared the story of someone threatening his safety:

While the media fixates on gun control and demonizing the NRA, the far-left continues to escalate and embrace more violent tactics.

Armed extremist group tried to “radicalize” and recruit students with mental health issues

Posted on February 21, 2018 in The Extreme Left

In the last few years, Austin, Texas has become a hotbed for far-left extremist activity. One of the most active groups in the region is the communist militia group, Red Guards Austin. As we have previously reported, this “anti-fascist” group adores communist mass murderer Mao Zedong, routinely holds armed demonstrations, and openly calls for a violent armed revolution against the capitalist system.

As is common with leftist movements, a small cadre of devoted activists will often times organize under multiple banners in order to amplify their message and diversify their recruiting efforts. A few other local organizations that appear to share core membership and strategic goals with this militia group are Serve The People – Austin, Defend Our Hoods – Austinand Revolutionary Student Front – Austin.

Revolutionary Student FrontAustin is a self described “revolutionary anti-capitalist student movement” that organizes at the University of Texas – Austin. This militant student group recently made headlines for holding self-defense training on campus and tweeting about killing police officers. Earlier this month they published a comprehensive document outlining their so-called “Revolutionary Mental Health Program (RMHP)”. This 13,000+ word document covers the formulation, goals, failures, and successes of this program and why the ultimately decided to end it . Below are some of the more alarming excerpts from this document:

Their stated goal for this program was to address the mental health needs of student and to ultimately recruit and radicalize students with mental health issues in order to “make them into active fighters”:

“The primary goal of this program was to address the mental health needs of students in a way that would primarily serve to politicize and strengthen them, to become more committed to revolution and more capable of carrying it out.”

——————–

“The RMHP was born out of a process of social investigation during our first semester as an organization in the fall of 2016. We set about determining what aspects of life were being neglected by the capitalist administrators of the University of Texas (UT). Naturally, we also set about gathering ideas from students on how these problems could potentially be solved without resorting to begging for handouts from university bureaucrats, whose class interests are always against those of the working class. Through many hours of discussion with students while tabling and at our public meetings, and through regular contact with disgruntled students, we uncovered numerous pressing needs facing the general student body and working-class students alike. From this point, we sought to determine a site of struggle that would appeal to the sections of the student population most ripe for radicalization and to develop a plan to address those needs in a way that would politicize these students, with the goal of course being to make them into active fighters in the revolutionary class struggle.”

They also admit that this idea was partly inspired by the Socialist Patient’s Collective (SPK), a German neo-Marxist group that attempted to re-frame “mental illness” as a product of capitalist oppression and believed that the sick formed a revolutionary class of people who could be radicalized to join their cause:

“Over the winter of 2016 and in the early spring of 2017, the leadership of RSF spent a significant amount of time studying the work “Turn Illness into a Weapon,” which recounts the experiences of the Socialist Patients’ Collective (SPK) of the University of Heidelberg, Germany, in 1970. “

Here they explicitly outline that every project they do is designed to “recruit fighters”:

The goal of every initiative and program launched by a revolutionary organization should be for the purpose of recruiting fighters into its ranks and forging them in the fiery furnace of class struggle.

Here they suggest that some of their own organizers suffer from mental illness:

Orienting recruitment toward those suffering from qualitatively more intense mental illness, a population whose conditions in general serve as barriers to reaching the point of being continuous fighters (we say “in general” because many of the best organizers in the revolutionary movement and our organization also suffer from these conditions) does not accomplish the task of drawing from the most advanced sections of the people. 

Throughout the document there are multiple pictures of armed communist militants, quotes from communist revolutionaries and dictators, and repeated affirmations to their commitment to political violence and preparation for war:



“Because our forces can only be built through the militant, violent struggle against the enemies of our class, we know that these fretful cowards will never reach that point. Making war will prepare us for the war to come, rally around us and bring into our ranks those who realize the necessity of violence to achieve a classless society free from exploitation, and unmask the real enemies of the people. We reaffirm our commitment to the principle of revolutionary violence that is necessary to confront the enemies of the people”

——————–

The knowledge that prison or death awaits us as revolutionaries aiming to destroy capitalism should be enough to encourage us to develop our organization in a thorough and well-rounded manner

——————–

To be an effective revolutionary, a skilled writer cannot devote themselves merely to writing—they must also learn to speak well, punch hard and shoot well, work hard, design propaganda, communicate well with others, and so on. 

And the document concludes with an unapologetic promise for more political violence:

“The actions to come in the following year will draw clear lines in the sand between revolutionaries and counterrevolutionaries. We will make no apologies for the necessary violence of our struggle and will spare no sacrifice for the battles to come because we are revolutionaries committed to the overthrow of capitalism and the establishment of a classless society. We live for the people, we fight for the people, and we die for the people. This is what it means to be a revolutionary and this is what we uphold from this point until the final dying breath of capitalism.”

So let’s unpack this. A heavily armed communist militia group:

  • openly supports a communist dictator who brutally killed millions of people
  • openly advocates for targeted political violence against “capitalists”
  • openly encourages armed insurrection against the U.S. government
  • openly recruits at the University of Texas at Austin
  • openly admits to targeting students with mental health issues to become “fighters”
  • and openly admits that some of it’s own organizers suffer from mental health issues

With the information we have provided there should be zero doubt that the Revolutionary Student Front – Austin constitutes a legitimate security concern not only to the students of UT-Austin but to the general public as well. Considering that just months ago a far-left extremist opened fire on a GOP Congressional baseball practice game, I sincerely hope our reporting results in an investigation by the authorities as well as action by the University of Texas. Here is how you can take just a few minutes and help us make sure that happens:

Action Plan:
