An antifa cell in Kansas City called the Red Guards Kansas City recently published a report on their blog detailing their May Day 2018 activities. As was typical for many antifa groups who participated in May Day, this cell masked up and marched through the streets waving communist flags and carrying a large banner honoring the legacy of communist dictators who butchered tens of millions of people in the 20th century.
We previously reported on this same cell holding armed demonstrations and advocating for political violence but here are some additional pictures from their Facebook page:
What makes this particular May Day event unique are four distinct factors:
1. According to their report, at least one of the antifa members was armed:
“In very short order, more than five cop cars were following us, with more on the way. They did not wait long after we had refused their warnings to take action. Although they profess to be protecting public safety and enforcing the law, their first actions were to block the entire street and snatch up a comrade who was exercising his right to open carry.”
2. According to their report, they physically attacked the arresting officers
The pigs blows did not go unanswered however. Communists have every right to defend their comrades when they are being attacked by foot soliders of the oppressive state apparatus, and during the clashes anonymous rebels were able to land hits on the pigs, before retreating back into the group.
3: According to their Facebook page, five members were arrested that day:
4. None of this was covered in the media.
So armed, masked, far-left extremists marched through the streets while praising a political ideology whose adherents have killed tens of millions of people. When confronted by the police, members of this group attacked officers and were taken into custody. In spite of ALL OF THAT, we could not find any media coverage of these arrests. Why do you think that is?
Anyway, if you are a Kansas City resident or a concerned citizen interested in creating a safer society, please contact the Kansas City Police Department and let them know that the antifa activists they arrested on May 1st published a blog in which they brag that they were able to “land hits on the pigs”. If you email the department, make sure to include this archived version of the antifa group’s blog post.
