The increasingly violent antifa group, Red Guards Austin, is now calling for the formation of a “Red Army”. In a recent blog post they published and shared from their Facebook account, this far-left extremist group said the following:
we encourage the formation of paramilitary organizations on two levels. The first being those who are mainly unarmed but are prepared and trained to carry out fist fighting or using blunt weapons like axe handles or flagpoles as well as shields and basic armoring. The second level is the more advanced embryo of a Red Army, which is trained militarily and operates as soldiers all the time, engaging in production and mass work among the proletariat and the oppressed nation’s people.
They then advocate for sustained “physical confrontation” against anyone they believe to be a fascist:
It is time for Austin to stand up, to shake off bad leadership trying to impose itself on antifascism and come together under a better model of actual resistance and not token performance. When we organize and lead actions the fascists do not march every step they take is met with physical confrontation and they are bombarded from all sides.
They conclude this post by reaffirming their commitment to terrorism and say they are prepared to “annihilate” people they believe to be “fascists” or “collaborators”:
On the basis of our principled united front work, fascists and their collaborators can be drowned out, run out, routed, beaten bloody, and even annihilated. These are our principles and we aim to hold them to the very finish.
This militant rhetoric is a continuation of previous statements from this cell which include open calls for “revolutionary violence” and “armed resistance”. This antifa group is just one of many violent communist cells now openly operating across the country. We have previously reported on similar cells here, here, and here.
Like many antifa groups, Red Guards Austin uses social media to recruit, radicalize, and mobilize other far-left extremists. This particular cell has almost eight thousand Facebook followers. While big tech companies have been systematically censoring conservatives and right-of-center influencers, violent far-left groups are free to openly violate the Terms of Service for these platforms without any consequences.
If you are an Austin resident and you are concerned that this armed, violent, extremist group might present a threat to you or your family, we strongly encourage you to contact the FBI. Make sure to include our report in your message.
