The far-left milita movement has seen significant growth since the election of President Trump. One of the leading groups behind this effort is Redneck Revolt, which claims to have 30+ vetted branches nationwide. We recently profiled this organization and highlighted their distribution of a 36 page guerrilla warfare manual that included section on “kidnapping”, “executions” and “terrorism”. Since the publication of our story that particular PDF has been removed from their resource page.
On Monday, September 18th the Greater Seattle General Defense Committee released a statement alleging “a history of betrayal, and sexual and psychological abuse” by Redneck Revolt founding member, Dave Strano.
“It has recently come to our attention that Dave Strano, a founding member of Redneck Revolt and the John Brown Gun Club, has demonstrated a history of betrayal, and sexual and psychological abuse, and we issue this statement in solidarity with the survivors of those behaviors. The General Defense Committee is charged with the defense of the working class and other oppressed people. The clear pattern of abuse committed by Dave is oppressive on many levels, and the survivors need our support.
Therefore, GDC Local 24 publicly denounces Dave’s abusive behavior, and his attempts to evade any accountability for his actions. Accountability in this context includes removing himself from any involvement with Redneck Revolt and John Brown Gun Club. Any system of accountability that avoids this is not accountability, but an evasion of it. While the GDC supports the missions of both Redneck Revolt and John Brown Gun Club, we will not work with, and will not support, any organizations who continue to work with or support Dave Strano.
We ask that other locals in the General Defense Committee join us in supporting survivors by denouncing Dave Strano’s behavior and severing ties with any organizations or individuals that support him.
An injury to one is an injury to all.”
The specifics of these allegations are unclear but we will keep you updated as more details become available.
