ALT-LEFT TERRORISM: Antifa Declare ‘Everything a Battlefield’, Advocate ‘Violent Revolution’ Against Capitalism!
This report was originally brought to our attention by Far Left Watch, a site that monitors left-wing extremism.
Austin, Texas-based Antifa group known as “Red Guards Austin” are gaining momentum and prominence in the Texas anti-fascist scene and are calling for dramatic actions.
The “Marxist-Leninist-Maoist” organization state on their website that they are pro-violence and have reported on numerous occasions about their armed and aggressive demonstration practices.
Red Guards Austin is extremely open about their terroristic goals and openly advocate and support a “violent revolution” against capitalism, writing:
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.
In their latest blog post entitled “Everywhere a Battlefield”, they declare that “the war is not coming – it is here and now,” and then they go about calling for weapons training and an expansion of “revolutionary violence.”
The war is not coming – it is here and now. We must take our historic task seriously. We must accumulate forces and steel them in small-scale street battles. We must respond accordingly to the apocalyptic reality that capitalism-imperialism has forced on us.
From there, the blog post goes on to detail the need for “red physical culture” and that the members and others train in “both hand-to-hand combat and in weapons” and then state that they must be tactical and “choose the field of combat thoughtfully and not out of uninventive and timid habit” and closing off their violent sentiments with “reclaiming violence means making revolutionary violence available to be utilized by all types of comrades at all levels and all abilities.”
