One of the Outside Groups Inciting Violence in Ferguson: The Revolutionary Communist Party

Tue, Aug 19, 2014 at 10:12:46 am

Last night, with the help of some others on Twitter, I discovered an important story the media have so far missed: one of the main outside groups involved in inciting violence in Ferguson is the notorious Revolutionary Communist Party, a Maoist group started by cultish leader Bob Avakian. One of their slogans is "No solution without violent revolution."

The RCP is generally despised by liberal community organizers, and well known for showing up at protests such as OWS and doing their best to instigate violent conflicts between police and protesters.

Here are some of the tweets posted on this subject:

@sunsentinello @Wilson__Valdez "BA speaks" stands for "Bob Avakian," their cult leader.

@AllenMcDuffee They're not trying to hide, that's for sure. I saw another one standing right next to @AntonioFrench in one of his Vines.

@Green_Footballs For the record, the RCP is a bunch of loudmouths who always manage to leave protests before anyone else @joshtpm

One of their chants is "There is no solution but violent revolution." @Green_Footballs @joshtpm

Shahid tried to talk to these agitators/instigators earlier. They were trying to provoke a fight with police. https://t.co/Vsc7JNmPWK
