Skip to comments.Armed Antifa group declares “Everywhere a battlefield” (CWII)

The Austin based Anti-fascists group, Red Guards Austin, has been gaining prominence in the Texas Antifa movement. As we have previously reported, they are a self described autonomous Marxist-Leninist-Maoist collective and their website contains multiple reports on their confrontational and often armed demonstrations.
They also openly advocate for violent revolution against capitalism.
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 a recent blog titled Everywhere a Battlefield, this trend continues as they claim The war is not comingit is here and now and then discuss the need for weapons training and more revolutionary violence.
The war is not comingit 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.
So what does self-defense mean for the rest of us? What does it mean for enemies of the state? It can only mean that we must develop red physical culture. It means that we must contend for ground that has been ceded to the enemy. That we train in both hand-to-hand combat and in weapons. We must take community self-defense seriously. We must walk away from the comfort zone of the legal left, and by extension it means that those who protect them are sure to attack us. It means that we return to our filthy neighborhoods of cramped apartment complexes and organize right there among our class. It means that we choose the field of combat thoughtfully and not out of uninventive and timid habit. We cannot expect a mass antifascist movement to develop its necessarily revolutionary character unless we move away from the state-ordained protest zones.
Reclaiming violence means making revolutionary violence available to be utilized by all types of comrades at all levels and all abilities. It means training physically in flexible ways applied to the specific conditions of specific groups. Everyone, regardless of ability, can improve. This is not to do away all at once with the division of violent labor; the science of revolutionary violence is universal, and it must at the same time be applied with great care to the specific. In this process of trial and error we sharpen and broaden our skillsets. Martial arts, firearms, and sports must be seen as cultural battlefields as well as invaluable tools in our revolutionary toolkit.
For months, militant antifa groups have been engaging in targeted political violence. They claim they exist to fight racists, bigots, and white supremacists; and their allies in the media often echo these claims. But if the actions from the Red Guards Austin is any indication, this is nothing more than a public relations campaign to recruit moderates. Their end goal is communism, a political ideology responsible for over 94 million deaths in the 20th century.

Now we have
Antifa Marxist Communist/Anarchist jihadists and Islamic Jihadists in the U.S. When the shtf in America I strongly suspect they will quickly link up, if they haven't already.
CWII Ping anyone?
Is there anyone on FR who doesn’t own more than one gun?
If this was right wing militias posting photos and making threats, they’d all be in jail by now.
The hypocrisy, it burns.
these goons are a riot. Anti-fascists fighting for communist fascism. Do they even understand how stupid that sounds? But these onesies-wearers aren’t fighting for communism; that’s a smokescreen. They are people who want to kill Americans, starting with the white folk to keep the sheeple indoctrinated and motivated, but certainly not ending with them.
I had a co-worker in Des Moines who could’ve single-handedly outfitted a battalion. Don’t know why he felt he needed so many firearms, especially since we weren’t getting paid much. Every woman I ever dated had a pistol in their purses. Don’t know if that’s a reflection on me or what. LOL
Noted. And those hammer/cycle on their faces make great targets.
I don’t own a gun.
It isn’t necessary where I live.
There are also registration requirements here that I don’t want to abide by.
However, I am a lifetime NRA member and understand the need and desire of people that don’t live on ridiculously low crime little islands to carry a weapon
Open season on these pukes . Confront them armed . Cap.them by the dozens . Figure out where they hold up . Raid their squats . Leave none .
If it’s a civil war they want ; geev um
Prominently featured during Obama's first presidential campaign,
It isnt necessary where I live.
Yes, I see you live on Guam. You may not need a gun, but I guess there is some discussion there about the possibility of the need for fallout shelters.
The great thing about these long years of war we have gone thru is that we now have vast numbers of very well trained sniper veterans
If you know how many guns you own, then you don’t own enough.
Oh, dear. Video game revolutionaries with slogans and cool songs, waving guns around like magic wands. They have no idea what their own country is like. This will not end well.
“Red Guards”...how original. They are, however, eerily reminiscent of the Khmer Rouge...but that’s probably only the group in Chinatown. I wonder if the ones in Detroit call themselves Ton Ton Macoute?
They seem to have a lot of different makes and calibres of weapons, so if one should run out of ammo he/she/it can’t depend on any resupply from the rest of the group.
In Latin America I have seen and occasionally spoken to real revolutionaries, enough to know the whole idea isn’t fun, it isn’t clean or comfortable, it isn’t “bad-ass” romantic or cool. If these wimps had the slightest clue what a can of worms they are trying to open, they would go skittering back to mommy’s basement real fast!
It's like saying we hate the evil color lavender so we are going to fight it with purple.
You’re probably pretty accurate with that description.
right now they are pretty much just a cruel joke by the media on Trump, but it could get real if they keep gaining momentum
