Redneck revolt

Rednecks with guns, yes but these guys are mainly leftists and oppose racism.

Quote
“People need to be able to defend themselves. [We] live in a country in the world where people of color and LGBTQ people are routinely victimized and systematically victimized by the people who claim to be there for their defense,” a Pittsburgh, PA Redneck Revolt organizer named Shaun told Shadowproof. We provide free basic firearms training to pretty much everyone who needs it. We focus on trying to provide [self-defense training] when asked for [by] communities of color and LGBTQ folks.”

Interesting. I was kinda expecting news like this as guns are so common in USA that it was unlikely that only Right-wingers have them.

It's also interesting to see if NRA turns on these guys and GOP suddenly starts to promote gun control as a way to disarm leftists and minorities...
No matter what happens, no matter what my last words may end up being, I want everyone to claim that they were:
"If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you could possibly imagine."
Aww, you guys rock. :)  I feel the love... and the pitchforks and torches.  Tingly!

It seems I was incorrect about rednecks.

I am offensively offensive. How Offensive!

So, kind of a white black panthers?

Yeah, there was a punk rock subculture a while ago calling themselves "rednecks" which is different to the racist kind with some links to the psychobillies. I think some of the Redneck Revolt guys have also been involved in anti racist skinhead movements like RASH and SHARP.

Considering that I've seen a left wing Youtuber calling himself "The Liberal Red Neck" using his platform to argue for left wing causes with a deep south accent and enjoying trucks and hunting, this doesn't surprise me all that much.
Who needs a signature?

Some of the pictures of the old Young Patriot Party on the Redneck Revolt website are pretty incredible.

California used to have an open carry law, thanks to NRA lobbying.

Then the Black Panthers started openly carrying guns.

The NRA was instrumental in repealing California's open carry law.

There are few men in this Parliament for whom I have greater respect than the leader of the Co-operative Commonwealth Federation. I admire him in my heart, because time and again he has had the courage to say what lays on his conscience, regardless of what the world might think of him. A man of that calibre is an ornament to any Parliament.

Well shit, something worthwhile came out of the redneck subculture, after all.  I am legitimately surprised, and pleasantly so.

Yeah, I've read about this group a while ago. Ideologically, they are pretty much average anarchists who just happen to live in rural communities instead of cities. The main difference between an anarchist in here, for example, and these guys is the influence of the American gun culture. While I disagree on their stance on guns in principle, I understand where they are coming from since in the American context the way the legal system is applied in practice is very much imbalanced against the lower classes and minorities. I understand the fear that a potential tighter gun regulation would end up transferring more power away from the poor communities specially when you take into account the the anarchists' general distrust of the system.
