Armed Antifa Leader/UNC Professor Admits Chasing Charlottesville Driver Before Deadly Crash

The deadly Charlottesville protests and the aftermath are not easily forgotten. White Supremacists and Antifa violently clashed around an otherwise reasonable issue of whether civil war era statues should stay or go.

To be sure, human excrement was to be found on both sides that day. However, the Leftist media is quick to give Antifa protesters initiating violence a pass, and hang the fatal results  solely around the neck of the other side that day and generally anyone who hesitates to throw out history just because it makes some people uncomfortable.

Heather Heyer was killed when a car rammed into a group of Antifa protesters, ostensibly in an attempt to maim and kill, though others have disputed that narrative since the beginning

Some new information has emerged that makes it even more clear that the guilt for the death of Heather Deyer should be spread around a bit more.

Dwayne Dixon, a University of North Carolina anthropology professor and leader of the armed Antifa group Redneck Revolt, has admitted to chasing James Alex Fields Jr. with a rifle just before he drove into a group of protesters — killing Heather Heyer.

This new revelation adds some insight into what was happening in the moments leading up to the fatal incident.

In a Facebook post by Dixon on January 7, obtained by the Gateway Pundit, he wrote:

I take perverse pleasure in having carried this Spike’s lower in the defense of Justice Park on August 12th. I used this rifle to chase off James Fields from our block of 4th St before he attacked the marchers to the south. Spike’s needs a good lesson in ethics and antifascism.””

First, it is no surprise that a UNC Anthropology professor is a raging Leftist willing to threaten violence when confronted with opposing ideas. Dixon has actually organized more than 40 chapters of these militant Leftist ‘Redneck Revolt’ groups.

It is unclear if Dixon running James Fields off with a rifle had anything to do with Fields subsequently dricing into a crowd of people, killing Heather Heyer, but some think such an instigation makes sense in light of Dixon’s reaction to the carnage.

“Though this was quickly branded an act of terrorism by the media, according to police reports after the accident, Fields had expressed shock and remorse asking, “Are they okay?” This concern lead many to question if it had been an accident.”

So was Dixon the reason James Fields was frantically driving away? We may never know, but Dixon would likely justify anything in the name of ‘reistance.’

“In an interview with ABC News, Dixon described the hours after Charlottesville as feeling like “leaving a battlefield.”

“They’re not just speaking – they’re marching. They’re marching in a way that’s intimidating, as we all know is harking back to the torch light rallies of the Nazi era.”

Despite calls for the university to fire Dixon, he remains employed.

“When the left uses violence, in the rare cases that it happens, it’s resistance,” Dixon said.”

Is this guy serious? So, Leftist violence is justified because their feelings are hurt? Physical assaults are warranted because people are marching with candles?

Sadly, too many people think violence is the answer to ideas they don’t like. Even the most grotesque ideas, especially the most grotesque ideas should be protected under the principles of free speech.

Dixon, the enlightened Leftist college professor, doesn’t think so.

When a rumor of an imminent white supremacist rally in Durham was spread by Durham’s now-Mayor Pro Tem, Dixon responded by bringing his rifle and gear and racked up two misdemeanor charges in the process, according to the Herald-Sun.

“Dixon was seen carrying a semi-automatic rifle loaded with a 30-round magazine and carrying at least two other magazines, said Maj. Paul Martin.

“So he had a total of 90 bullets,” Martin said.

Dixon was arrested Sunday after law enforcement received a complaint about gunshots in East Durham, Martin said. When officers responded, they checked warrants and arrested Dixon, Martin said.

He was released on $5,000 bail.”

This guy is teaching kids at UNC. The mainstream media is all too happy to rake UNC over the coals over and over for some imaginary classes for student-athletes, but offer only a resounding silence when it comes to militant Leftists professors indoctrinating children and setting these kind of examples for ‘resistance.’

He’s even given seminars specifically on armed resistance at haughty places like Harvard.

What does this time of escalating political discord demand of us—our ethics, our social selves, and our bodies? How can communities protect themselves from racist terror when the state is indifferent or hostile? From the perspective of his experiences with Redneck Revolt in Charlottesville, VA, and Durham, NC, anthropologist Dwayne Dixon discusses armed self-defense and the need for a diversity of tactics in anti-fascist resistance.

Maybe the state is indifferent because the racist “terror” is really only racist speech, or worse for the Leftists, people that refuse to walk the line they’ve drawn for acceptable thoughts and policy positions.

His anti-fascist resistance is such a paradoxical joke – Antifa are the fascists! They are the thought police, book burners, Brown Shirts, that have zero tolerance for dissent. What an embarrassment to the Old North State.

UNC, fire this fool.
