Finally, Newsweek finds an armed militia it really likes, because they're communists

Newsweek never struck us as being bullish on guns, but the magazine is really anxious for its readers to meet Redneck Revolt, “a group of far-left activists” who have sparked “a working class movement that promotes social justice and protects minorities.”

Cristina Maza writes:

Similar to the grassroots vigilantes who attended the Unite the Right Rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, this summer, members of Redneck Revolt can often be found at protests armed to the teeth. But instead of protecting far-right white supremacists, members of Redneck Revolt provide protection for minority groups such as Black Lives Matter and other groups fighting for equality and justice.

Maza adds that Redneck Revolt “is a pro-worker, anti-racist organization that focuses on working class liberation from the oppressive systems which dominate our lives” and counts among its members “a variety of political ideologies, including libertarians, anarchists, communists and independents.”

Sounds pretty diverse. However, a quick trip to the “Principles” page of the Redneck Revolt website shows the group stands against capitalism, “an economic system that methodically keeps the vast majority of people in the world impoverished while they labor to enrich a small minority of people,” and believes in the need for revolution.

So yeah, they’re a bunch of communists with guns. No wonder Newsweek is so jazzed … The Independent too.

So armed vigilante groups are cool now? And the Second Amendment too?

Yes, where are the scare quotes? And where is an equally enthusiastic article about the millions of moderate, centrist gun owners out there? They’re armed — and they’re everywhere.

Was this a misprint, or did Newsweek really run a non-hysterical opinion piece on vets and guns?
