Undercover journalists from Project Veritas posed as Antifa recruits and captured secret footage of Antifa meetings, including those held in Shelby, North Carolina, by a self-described "above ground militant formation" known as "Redneck Revolt."
Also known as the "John Brown gun club," this "militia wing" of Antifa was apparently founded back in June of 2016, and now has some 30 branches nationwide. And this particular branch of Antifa looks much different than the ones often depicted in the media.
"They share the Antifa ideology and it can be shared by many different groups," the undercover journalist stated. "Typically, Antifa that you see on TV are the ones that are dressed all in black ... You know, and they go and throw rocks or bricks and start trouble."
Members of the Redneck Revolt believe themselves to be armed revolutionaries from the working class who share the same communist, anarchist vision for America's future. In their view, the working class should be in charge of a country with no government.
"And they believe in total abolition of everything, including the police," the undercover journalist added.
Listen below to The Health Ranger Report as Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, asks the question concerning Antifa's recent takeover of several city blocks in Seattle, "Can we all declare our own autonomous zones now?"
Deviating very little, ideologically speaking, from the donned-in-black Antifas most people are familiar with, Redneck Revolt claims to be anti-fascist and anti-"white supremacy," the latter of which really does not even exist.
Redneck Revolt is also opposed to capitalism and wealth in general, and is seeking to raise up a "militant resistance" capable of bringing about total "revolution" throughout the United States.
What sets Redneck Revolt apart from other Antifa arms is that this group looks more like a militia, and even attends gun shows and other community events. Some of them may even look like "conservatives" if you were none the wiser as to their tactics and agenda.
Part of the Project Veritas investigation into Redneck Revolt also revealed that the group contributes to a far-left anarchist website known as "Going Down" that has conducted "armed anti-Trump demonstrations" in the past. On this website, one PDF document promotes an "armed struggle" while another is dubbed the "Mini-Manual Of The Urban Guerilla."
This latter document contains pictures of left-wing militants "using RPGs and outlines tactics for guerilla warfare including sections on 'sabotage,' 'kidnapping,' 'executions,' 'armed propaganda,' and 'terrorism.'"
Despite its desire for armed conflict, Redneck Revolt claims to be against the National Rifle Association (NRA). Paul Ditz, its former leader, stated that he hates the NRA, dubbing it "a white supremacist terrorist organization."
While fake-training undercover at a gun range with Redneck Revolt, the Project Veritas journalist says she was quizzed about how she would respond if asked about her affiliation with the group. She responded by saying that she would not identify herself as being affiliated.
"If an officer of the state came to the door and asked you questions about your political ideology and people you associate with, how would you respond?" asked former Redneck Revolt member Matt, also known as "Clyde."
"If you were tabling a gun show and someone loudly accused you of being a terrorist or part of Antifa, how would you handle it?" he also asked.
