You’ll find members armed and at rallies, but unlike the militias defending literal Nazis right to "speak," Redneck Revolt is defending groups like BLM and their right to simply "not die."
Redneck Revolts’ press release, reported on by Newsweek, outlines a mission to oppose White Supremacy. They cite the reality that threats of violence to minority communities has prompted their reaction to “organize in community defense as both an obligation and a commitment to defend each other.”
They aren’t strictly advocating for an American gun culture either. (cough, NRA, cough.) They are pro workers rights, and seek to unite racial divides in the working class. They seek out recruits at NASCAR races, fairs and gun shows. It’s counter recruiting where “working class folks” are already being targeted and radicalized by White Supremacists and racist 2A militias.
I’m a bit of a hypocrite as I’ve been advocating for liberals to get guns for years, but I don’t personally have one. Redneck Revolt is certainly inspiring me to follow through.
