In March 2017, ANP published a two-part series on armed leftists groups showing up at pro-Trump rallies, and in that piece, we noted that many of those groups were handing out fliers titled “Redneck Revolt,” where we quoted their own website as stating they “Believe in the right of a militant resistance,” and “in the need for revolution.”
Redneck Revolt’s organizing principles mirror much of what you would see on any other far left organizing platform. They begin with their very reasonable, very easy to support, opposition to “white supremacy”.
They then dive into class theory, anti-capitalist, and anti-wealth rhetoric that could have been copied directly from The Communist Manifesto. And finally, they wrap up with open calls for “militant resistance” and “revolution”.
Consider this part three in the ‘Full-Scale Revolution’ series, as we have run across some very disturbing news regarding this Redneck Revolt group, where their communist leanings of anti-captialism, class warfare, and belief in the need of a revolution by way of “urban guerrilla” warfare, includes recommended resources, one of which is titled “Mini-Manual Of The Urban Guerrilla,” which teaches their “30+ vetted branches” across the country about tactics of warfare, including “sabotage”, “kidnapping”, “executions”, “armed propaganda”, and “terrorism”.
Each section listed in quotations marks above, covers an explanation of the term, who or what should be targeted, and how the action can be implemented. For example, under the kidnapping category, it details who the preferred targets would be, “a spy, political personality or a notorious and dangerous enemy of the revolutionary movement, yet goes on to say it is alright to target “personalities who are well know artists, sports figures or who are outstanding in some other field, but who have evidenced no political interest” because it can be used as “propaganda for the guerrillas.”
Even more horrifying is how the manual explains “armed propaganda,” where they list all the other categories as methods to create said propaganda, but also include methods like “Bank robberies, ambushes, desertions and the diverting of weapons,” going on to suggest that “Airplanes diverted in flight by guerrilla action, ships and trains assaulted and siezed by armed guerrillas, can also be carried out solely for propaganda effect.”
Under Terrorism, they conclude in the last sentence that “Terrorism is a weapon the revolutionary can never relinquish.”
HEROES OF THE LEFT
While many might think these small groups, now in 32 regions, are just “fringe,” it is noteworthy as to how they are described by other more mainstream liberals, such as the writers at Mother Jones, which stated in their May-June issue “Redneck Revolt and other groups have pledged to resist right-wing extremists by any means necessary.”
Here is their description of the group:
This network, largely made up of anarchists and libertarians, is focused on anti-racist organizing among the white working class. Inspired by the Young Patriots—white Appalachian activists who allied with the Black Panthers in the late 1960s—the group now claims chapters in more than 30 regions. Redneck Revolt’s members can speak to their neighbors more easily than ivory-tower liberals, says Lucas Kelly, a member of the Phoenix chapter. “‘Privilege’ means one thing to them. It means a different thing to working-class folks who put in 60, 80 hours a week to support their family.”
The group also runs firearms trainings. Last December, Kelly’s chapter sent members to a gun show, where they handed out posters tagged with the slogan “Fighting Nazis Is an American Tradition: Stop the Alt-Right.”
While their “firearms training” isn’t exactly impressive, the fact that they are encouraging open warfare, kidnapping and outright terrorism against Americans, while being highlighted by other liberal groups, and having grown to 32 regions across America, when on July 7th they announced they were celebrating their one year anniversary in their “current incarnation,” shows a concerning level of growth in a short time.
During the Obama administration, patriot groups were targeted, religious groups were called “extremists,” right-wing groups were labeled “dangerous,” and potential “domestic terrorist,” for nothing more than fighting for free speech and their constitutional rights, yet now there is a left-wing group, actually stating they are preparing for a revolution, providing materials to their members as “resources” that encourage hi-jacking planes, executions, sabotage, bank robberies, outright terrorism and kidnapping, and more, in the name of “armed propaganda.”
Someone in the Trump administration had better be paying attention to these people, because if they attack conservative patriots in the U.S., things are going to get very ugly, very fast.
