The Red Guards are at it again.

Last October, the group of Maoist radicals crashed an “anti-fascist” meeting coordinated by the Democratic Socialists of America and various local anarchists.

Two days ago Heidi Sloan, a DSA hipster running for Congress in Austin, was shoved, egged, and covered in red paint by them in an alley. This came after they managed to disrupt a major DSA canvassing event for Bernie Sanders organized by Sloan.

For outsiders, the feud between Maoists and the DSA/Bernie movement is confusing, but it makes perfect sense when one looks at the class and racial composition of the respective organizations.

The Red Guards are unique among leftist groups due to their ability to recruit non-whites and criminal types who detest the nerdy, effeminate DSA, which is largely composed of affluent cosmopolitans working in the FTE (people who work in finance-technology-electronics) sector, who are broadly white and Jewish.

There are many more visible blacks in the MAGA movement than in the Bernie Sanders campaign and DSA, who have made the bourgeois obsession with “racism” one of their top issues in the last few years.

Further driving the antagonism is the DSA’s support for the US occupation in Syria, as well as various CIA concocted “regime change” astroturf protests in Lebanon, Hong Kong, Iran, and so on. Most “tankies” like the Red Guards, Party for Socialism and Liberation, and Workers World Party are principled anti-imperialists and oppose American meddling everywhere.

The main issue though is that Maoists reject electoral politics, preferring “protracted people’s war,” which includes shutting down left-liberals.

How much further the Red Guards will seek to escalate in Austin remains a mystery. But the left is gradually beginning to fracture.

History has shown that when anarchists and communists run out of “fascists” and “reactionaries” to attack, they end turning their brutality on one another. Let’s see if the liberals at The Intercept and The Guardian think “Nazi-punching” and “milkshaking” are still funny when these violent elements start targeting them.

    LOL!, just lol.

    Maybe now the left will understand what it feels like to look over the shoulder constantly in fear of the Stasi agents waiting to strike at the slightest sign of wrong think.

    The Maoist seem pretty BASED AND REDPILLED to me.

    Masculine socialism as opposed to feminine democratic socialism.

    Sadly our B and R comrades don’t have a snowball’s chance in hell of making America a not gay and bluepilled zionist golem disgrace. And the white nationalist have even less of a chance.

    America is doomed, it has topay for its sins. hopefully in the form of hypersonic Russian nukes.

    I have personally sent Putin over 1000 emails encouraging him to nuke the U.S. But he has failed to reply.

    *Sigh* If only Mao was alive. He wasn’t afraid of nukes.

    You never know who is really what. The RCP (Revolutionary Communist Party), a Maoist group, has been showing up at every demonstration for decades now here in Chicago. They apparently have all the time in the world to demonstrate and be a public nuisance. Wonder where the money comes from, who’s really in charge from behind the curtain, etc etc. It’s supposedly headed by a guy named Bob Avakian who has been around since the 70’s. They make a deliberate effort to get minorities involved so they can showcase them at street level. Not many at the higher level, whoever they really are. Insofar as the DSA goes there’s not a lot of socialism in those socialists, apparently, seeing how they support things like involvement in Syria. The average American is against all those wars and entanglements, making them more socialist than the self-professed ones of the DSA. Sanders himself is a worthless dilettante who has never accomplished anything outside of his career in government politics. Which group has more spooks embedded?

    You’re thinking of draft dodging President Bone Spurs.

    Didnt know about the negro situation in the Red Guards. You got a ballpark figure of the percentage?

  6. Leftists, leftists, leftists everywhere! Seeing this mindless repetition I feel like the Jew who read the Nazi party paper, the Volkischer Beobachter, every day – he said it made him feel good to read about how much power his people had in Germany after all. The 40% or so of us who would like to see a socialist America have absolutely no representation in government and we are completely censored out of the corporate media, when they are not distorting what socialism actually means.

    Still, imagine being a Maoist in Texas: talk about cojones. Well, one thing they and the Texans can agree on: all political power comes from the barrel of a gun, as Mao said. Still and all, as was observed long ago, if you go carrying pictures of chairman Mao, you ain’t gonna make it with anyone anyhow.

    So Avakian and the RCP are still around after all these years? I’m a little surprised to hear that but not at all surprised to hear they are still attacking other socialists. They were doing that (including attacking other Maoists) back when I saw them in action in LA in the late ’60s and early ’70s. The deep state (excuse me, law enforcement) uses these easily manipulated pseudo-street gangs to create divisions in dissident groups and set targeted individuals up for prosecution or elimination as needed. Similar groups and persons do the same job with Muslims and white nats. I’m sure most Bernie Bros are aware of this.
