Is Antifa planning to spark a Communist revolution to overthrow the U.S. government on November 4? That’s what many are saying, basing their conclusions on a lengthy screed posted at the website for the far-left Refuse Fascism, an organization WND said “is a front group for the Revolutionary Communist Party, a fiercely anti-American leftist group noted for its overt call to abolish the United States.”
According to Refuse Fascism (as posted):
We will gather in the streets and public squares of cities and towns across this country, at first many thousands declaring that this whole regime is illegitimate and that we will not stop until our single demand is met: This Nightmare Must End: the Trump/Pence Regime Must Go!
Our protest must grow day after day and night after night—thousands becoming hundreds of thousands, and then millions—determined to act to put a stop to the grave danger that the Trump/Pence Regime poses to the world by demanding that this whole regime be removed from power.
Our actions will reflect the values of respect for all of humanity and the world we want—in stark contrast to the hate and bigotry of the Trump/Pence fascist regime.
Our determination to persist and not back down will compel the whole world to take note. Every force and faction in the power structure would be forced to respond to our demand. The cracks and divisions among the powers already evident today will sharpen and widen. As we draw more and more people forward to stand up, all of this could lead to a situation where this illegitimate regime is removed from power.
Is this the call for an armed revolution in the United States?
The party has even drafted a “Constitution for the New Socialist Republic in North America” as a template for the post-American order.
The Revolutionary Communist Party is headed by Bob Avakian, a self-described “intellectual” who claims to have developed a new synthesis of communism.
Avakian also wrote a pamphlet called “The Coming Civil War and Repolarization for Revolution in the Present Era” in 2005. The RCP has received criticism even among leftists for its efforts to build a cult of personality around its leader.
Paul Joseph Watson observed:
A longer screed posted on the Revolutionary Communist website makes it clear that Antifa is not prepared to wait for electoral change from Democrats, and will engage in a “ferocious struggle,” based on plans outlined in a book written by Bob Avakian, the Chairman of the Revolutionary Communist Party, which is called The Coming Civil War.
Vowing to stop the “unrelenting terror” of the Trump administration, the group asserts that, “The stakes are nothing less than the future of humanity and the planet itself,” typically hysterical rhetoric which when combined with Antifa’s violent tactics should be a deep cause for concern for law enforcement bodies.
Earlier this week, far-left activists blocked the 101 freeway in downtown Los Angeles before holding up placards that read, “November 4 It Begins”.
An undercover video by Steven Crowder and his team shows Antifa members planning violent attacks while handing out sharp objects with which to stab conservatives. They even discussing the procurement of AK-47s.
Why November 4?
A post at the New American explains:
…This date is just three days prior to the 100th anniversary of the Bolshevik Revolution’s November 7, 1917 (October 25 under the old calendar) overthrow of the provisional government (which had replaced Tsarist rule a few months earlier) in Russia. Perhaps Antifa chose November 4 because it is on a Saturday and less likely to interfere with the capitalist jobs of some of the revolutionaries. Or perhaps Antifa’s timing has absolutely nothing to do with the Bolshevik Revolution’s centennial — though even if that were the case the communists in Antifa would surely view the timing of their revolution as a happy coincidence. At any rate, Americans can expect more revolutionary agitation between now and November 4 as the communists plan and execute new ways to promote their revolution.
The Nov. 4 event is thus simply the latest manifestation of a very old pattern, as the “anti-fascism” label conceals the true ideological agenda behind this mass mobilization. The protests, even if they turn violent, are likely to be covered by the liberal mainstream media as simply consisting of protests against “fascism” and President Trump. But they are actually part of a deliberate effort to promote communism and, explicitly, the end of America itself.
A post at Heavy.com says the group is allegedly opposed to initiating violence. Nevertheless, it seems many aren’t buying that, given the violent history of Antifa and other far-left groups, and seem ready to arm up in preparation for what could happen:
Meanwhile, Trump supporters are taking notice and some are worried about November 4. In The_Donald subreddit, one Redditor posted a thread titled “So what is the plan for November 4?” and wrote: “In my opinion I say we should all be arming ourselves and taking to the rooftops and streets to defend our cities. If they want a war I say let’s give it to them. Let them fire the first shot and then let those pathetic commie bastards know we mean business. What is the consensus of the rest of you? I love my country, and even though I am not a military serviceman I would still gladly lay down my life for my country. Should we be preparing ourselves for war? Or do we stand by? Because again in my opinion if these commies follow through with this plan it will only cement a Trump victory in 2020.”
Others responded that they thought the event was just propaganda and most definitely not a war. “Don’t go looking for a throw down,” one advised the poster. “You’d be doing exactly what they want, just go about your normal lives and refuse to even acknowledge their special little occasion.”
In another Reddit post, shared in the Conspiracy subreddit, a Redditor suggested stocking up on food, water, gold, silver, and medicine, along with guns and ammo, before November 4. Others responded that the protests likely wouldn’t last past Sunday night and they weren’t concerned.
The New American said police departments across the country should be preparing for potential violence on November 4.
“Because while there may not be ‘thousands becoming hundreds of thousands, and then millions’ involved in the events starting that day, there will be more episodes of disruption and — if the past is any indicator — some of it is likely to turn violent,” the post said.
