MAOIST AUSTIN RED GUARDS & THE UNIVERSITY OF TEXAS-How The Dream of a Socialist Utopia Went So Wrong

The Popular Women's Movement|Movimiento Femenino Popular are engaged in a political and information warfare campaign against sexist violence, poverty, gentrification of Austin's East side, the woman's right to choose, and the struggles of the women's working class. Sounds like a perfectly fine group of civic minded ladies who are focused on helping the poor and abused women of our society.

However, they form the feminine contribution to a larger group known as Red Guards Austin, an overtly violent gang of Maoist & Marxist revolutionaries who worship Lenin, Stalin, Mao and Marx.

Austin's East Side fight against gentrification with Red Guards Austin.

On the surface, Red Guards appear to be made up of young people who are resentful and angry at American Society. Their causes sound worthwhile, their complaints valid, their clothing representing an alternative lifestyle and a flair for UK punk with patches, scarves, tatoos and piercings. Many people call them AntiFA as their chants and rhetoric often parallel AntiFA for example: "All cops are bastards!" and "The only good cop is a dead cop!" Red Guards actually loathe AntiFA and the Democratic Socialists whom they freely target during election time.

In fact, the vandalism has reached a new level when Red Guards hit Austin's City Hall during the recent COVID lockdown, and the graffiti is prevalent through Austin's east side and on 6th street.  It's ugly.

Red Guards march up and down the streets on May 1st every year celebrating International Worker's Day by donning communist red flags and balaclavas. While easy to dismiss them as lost, angry, mixed up kids lacking intelligence on the wrong path with the wrong influences, that argument is an oblivious position. The underpinning is radical and the Austin group is inspired, trained, and organized. Red Guards wage a mature full court press of informational and political warfare with propaganda and deceitful language against the capitalist society they hate, and tactically work to destroy it through the war machine of Marxist ideology and ground strategies.

The scene is deeply rooted within a framework of programs teaching Marxism from the University of Texas at Austin; and stem from the building of an idea of a socialist utopia by the founder of the Rapoport Center for Human Rights and Justice, Bernard Rapoport. The Center also houses UT's Department of Economics. David Rapoport and Riva Feldman (parents to Bernard) were Jewish Russian immigrants arriving in 1908 and 1913 respectively. David was an anti-czarist who was arrested at the age of 17 and sentenced to hard labor in a Siberian camp and permanently exiled. He escaped and emigrated to San Antonio, Texas. David joined the Socialist Party advocating for a socialist utopia emphasizing concerns about injustices resulting from an unregulated capitalist economy. "Workers of the world unite" was a common slogan heard in Mr. Rapoport's speeches.

Bernard grew up in a politically charged environment of social justice causes and speeches.  Bernard's mother Riva instilled in him a dedication to learning and intellectual confidence. With limited financial resources, Bernard was taught the value of work and overcoming setbacks. Bernard used these lessons in becoming a very successful businessman and the founder of the Center at UT Austin. The Center has a long affinity for research and advocacy on refugee and immigrant worker's rights, human rights and U.S. foreign policy from which they migrate. The Center's commitment to being a "partner for change at the intersection of academics and advocacy" recreates the legacy of Bernard Rapoport's parents. Bernard states: "During my Childhood, my father taught me Marxism and hard work. My mother taught me to love learning. To know these simple facts is to know much about who I am and why I have led my life the way I have."

Bernard and his wife Audre established the Rapoport Foundation to support organizations in Israel, Waco and UT Austin. He founded the American Income Life Insurance Company and spread into labor and credit union markets making millions of dollars and forging strong relationships with the Democrat party including The Kennedys. Rapoport raised funds and donated to every single one of Bill Clinton's campaigns and was devoted to Hillary Clinton's presidential bid.

The Rapoports also supported the Jerusalem Foundation, Planned Parenthood and the local Austin publication The Texas Observer. Ann Richards appointed Rapoport to the UT System Board of Regents. Thereafter Rapoport established endowments for scholarships and chairs in economics and liberal arts and contributed to the Center named in his honor at the UT Campus. UT published a memoir entitled "Being Rapoport: Capitalist with a Conscience". Mr. Rapoport died in 2012.

The Texas Observer wrote that Rapoport submitted he was angry for supporting the magazine but continuted his loyal support for it as the "minister of irritance in Texas". The Observer also regards Rapoport for his reading of Marx and his belief that if capitalist wealth wasn't distributed, it wouldn't work.

Mr. Bernard Rapoport


Jumping forward to present year 2020, look closely at recent individuals and flyers found on the University of Texas at Austin's Campus regarding Socialism and Marxism that contain clear messages on what is being presented at the University:

The Marxist theory, history and its roadmap for revolution exists to supplement the ideologies of Red Guards and other revolutionary groups in Austin. While UT or its teachers cannot be held responsible for the violent acts of third parties, revolutionary acts have taken place right on campus and continue to spill out into the broader Austin community. Anarchist groups such as the Revolutionary Student Front and Autonomous have disbanded. However they have left their legacy on the internet and their members have regrouped. Autonomous and the Revolutionary Student Front engaged in a course of doxing Young Republicans Conservative groups, intimidation, harassment, and they admitted they looked for first year students who had "mental problems" as priority recruits. Revolutionary Student Front held one campus "people's court" trial that amounted to a public lynching, and were successful in getting University support for "toxic masculinity reeducation".  The Revolutionary Student front took a violent path viciously targeting and conducting vigilante lynch mob style punishments against professors they deemed rapists.  Richard A. Morrisett who was convicted of felony assault of his then girlfriend committed suicide after the targeting. 

The campaign looked like this:

Here are photos from Red Guards and affiliates in the Trump Age:

From 2018.

Fast forward to what Austin Red Guard looks like in 2020:

Graffiti lines the streets of Austin, Texas and on the east side:

This year, Red Guards have staged events where dozens of arrests were made after the City Hall vandalism event (link above). The Austin American Statesman published all of the mug shots and the internet is ripe with photos. But first, let's connect a further dot with UT Austin. This is just one of the people of Red Guards Austin showing her mug shot from her arrest on March 8th of this year and sitting at a recruitment booth on the campus:

Here we find hardcore revolutionary Blek Kroptkin, a young man who also assumes a female and a militant persona and is an active propagandist:

The Tribune of the People, A Revolutionary News Service, chronicled the recent International Worker's Day March. This story touts the ideology, message and mission in vibrant video and photos wherein their violence is on full display and also depicts photos from the arrests that took place before the event. The event was met with an enormous police presence:

The fight for communism is on in Austin, Texas. It is real. In true form, the street gangs establish enclaves in areas they can control. They are also supported by much more sinister influences from Syria, Venezuela, Colombia and more. This is a globally connected Red Green Axis movement:

Finally, here is a video from the Incendiary News Service once again brandishing their efforts against the gentrification of the east side of Austin. In this video a developer is targeted by criminal tresspassers vandalizing his home.

All war is deception and the same is held for the Marxist groups. While they say that they are against Fascism, they themselves march around with posters of Lenin, Stalin, Marx and Mao. Red Guards Austin want pure Maoist Communism and to get there they impose the chaos of Marxism. In their words and activism for an equal society, equal income, housing and medical care and to be free of the police and "oppression", they worship and learn from those who were responsible for the slavery and death of over 100 Million souls.  We see Marxist effects in our society today during the COVID outbreak. Police officers against citizens. Governors, mayors and Marxist city councils violating the Consitution with hate speech resolutions; officials removing children from good parents who are protesting for their freedom,  the right to work, and for liberty; establishing a COVID tracing system, and arresting small business owners for violating civil social distancing policies.

Are we not in serious trouble in this country due to Marxism running rampant in our schools, a Chinese Communist attack and requests for citizens to snitch on one another to what looks to be an SS Squad more and more every single day? Are we not being driven into poverty on a massive scale? Are we not living the Rules for Radicals right now in our very lives? It would appear so.


Canadian clinical psychologist, professor of psychology and author of 12 Rules for Life An Antidote to Chaos Jordan B. Peterson opined: "Humanities has been abandoned under the guise of post-modernism. The Neo-Marxism in our universities is morally repugnant and intellectually reprehensible. Their compassion for the downtrodden and that they are also Marxists is revealing that either their ignorance of history is so astounding that it is actually a form of miracle or a kind of malevolence so reprehensible so that it is almost unspeakable.  We already ran the equity experiment over the course of the 20th century. We already know what the Marxist doctrines have done for the oppressed peoples around the world and the answer to that was imprison them, enslave them, work them to death or execute them and that is not compensatory with any message of compassion. The Neo-Marxists don't have a leg to stand on ethically. They are a pack of charlatans, pseudo-intellectuals and resentful. They are highly deceptive in their intellectual strategies. The nightmares of the Soviet Union and Maoist China were of such magnitude that it completely invalidated any claim to ethical justification that the fundamental Marxist doctrines have ever manifested."

Sometimes heroes can be found in the most unlikely of places. College math teacher Collin Whites wore a patriotic T-Shirt and was forced to physically defend himself against a targeting AntiFA group in a school parking lot. Austin Community College terminated him for it. What a loss for the school and the students.  He is not the only one. All across the United States AntiFA groups form doxing brigades and good people have been fired for their conservative patriotism and standing up against this violence that has been largely misunderstood until just this year.

Red Guard doxed and harassed Mr Whites. They have beat him in the streets. Their publication contains outright falsehoods by the group Antifascist Austin:

Whites states: "There is a certain type of environment that fosters radicalism that does not happen spontaneously and there is a geography involved. For example, the death of Professor Morrissett. These things seem random but there was locality involved. Professor Morrissett was in the College of Pharmacy which was south of the building that houses among others, German studies, mental health, and LGBT studies. All of these studies have a heavy component of "anti-fascism" but seem to be more accurately described as revolutionary anarchy or revolutionary socialism and communism. The mentally ill students that were solicited for recruitment by the Revolutionary Student Front were from this center. The inspiration for this idea comes from German Socialists. The German studies has a heavy emphasis on anti-fascism and is also in this same building location. Anarchist books are prominently displayed and groups that fund the anarchist bookstores are active in this area. All these elements and groups are located next to the College of Pharmacy where Morrissett was being tortured and harassed." Whites opines that people commit crimes in ways and locations that are convenient to them.

UT Austin has a big game when it comes to teaching students in language and culture and the State Department is involved in funding aspects of the Russian, East European and Eurasian Studies. These foreign language studies, gender studies, women and LGBT studies have been exploited by the local AntiFA and Red Guards. They additionally gather intelligence at the Co-Ops and University Houses and harass their targets in these geographical areas. These areas are littered with anarchist stickers and graffiti. Social justice warrior education and the environment on Austin campuses has spilled out into the community and is a powerful Neo-Marxist force on campus. The handful of brave souls who have exposed Red Guards Austin have been long aware of this problem and have worked to their own detriment to expose this danger. After Austin's City Hall was damaged, law enforcement is finally stepping up. The schools need to be scruitinized. The Marxist radicalized and corrupt programs and their instructors should be defunded so that the tactical road map for this dangerous "activism" of deceit and war being harvested on campus burns out. Jordan Peterson says that students are not being taught to think, to write or to learn. They are being indoctrinated into Communism. The Austin Communist gangs should be driven from the campuses, our streets cleaned up, and the violent severely punished.



Thank you to Collin Whites for his contribution of intelligence to this piece. He should be where he belongs - teaching math.

I am not really a fan of what was the so-called Red Guards group as they were ultras. Their group had serious flaws that were not really articulated in this article.

All the same, much of this article seems to possess a significant right-wing bias. The part about Mr. Rapoport being a Marxist elicited from me a dry chuckle. It may be true that his father told him a great deal about Marxism, but from what is written about him in this article, it does not seem he actually possesses a Marxist ideology. The Clintons are not socialists. They are not even social democrats. They are center-right imperialists who promote neoliberalism. The only way in which they differ from Republicans…
