A professor of anthropology at the University of North Carolina (UNC) and attendee of the infamous Charlottesville protest has publicly come forward to admit that he provoked alleged driver James Fields with a large firearm right before the vehicle plowed into a crowd of protestors, killing Heather Heyer.
This bombshell admission by Dwayne Dixon, who claims to be the leader of the armed Antifa (anti-fascist) domestic terrorist group “Redneck Revolt,” shatters the official narrative that Fields was present at the rally with the intent of harming people. Reports explain that Dixon actually chased the vehicle that Fields was allegedly driving while holding a rifle, which appears to have resulted in the vehicle trying to flee by driving through masses of people in the streets.
In a recent post he published to Facebook on January 7, 2018, Dixon explained how he’s proud of the fact that he used the weapon to chase away the vehicle – apparently not realizing that this admission raises new questions about who is really to blame for the violence that took place that fateful day.
“I take perverse pleasure in having carried this Spike’s lower in the defense of Justice Park on August 12th,” Dixon wrote on the social media platform, along with a picture of the 45-year-old holding the rifle. “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.”
Not surprisingly, Dixon’s indicting post was quickly removed from Facebook (or set to private viewing only), as evidenced by the fact that it can no longer be found. It obviously disrupts the official narrative about what supposedly happened that day, which aimed to place all of the blame on so-called “white nationalists” who reportedly marched on the campus of the University of Virginia for the purpose of stoking racism.
What actually happened, though, has been the subject of much debate. Earlier counter reports suggest that James Fields, the alleged driver of the vehicle, did not actually intend to harm or kill anyone as he is said to have expressed shock and remorse following the incident. He even reportedly asked “Are they okay?” about those who were injured when he plowed through the crowd.
Was Fields simply trying to escape a potential act of violence by Dixon when he allegedly sped away in his vehicle, killing one and injuring 35 others? This latest bit of evidence seems to suggest so, further indicating that the “anti-fascists” at the rally may have actually been the ones provoking violence, not the “white nationalists.” If this was the case, then that would make Dixon and his fellow Antifa extremists the actual fascists in this particular narrative – which is quite the twist.
And this wasn’t the only time that Dixon brought his rifle to a public protest, either. Reports indicate that he was arrested and charged with two misdemeanors for bringing a semi-automatic rifle to downtown Durham, in North Carolina, over rumors of a “white supremacist rally” that never actually took place there. This would suggest that Dixon came with violence in mind.
Even so, Dixon had the gall to accuse the “white nationalist” marchers of being the aggressive ones during a post-rally interview with ABC News. Dixon told the media that it felt like “leaving a battlefield,” even though he was the one actually carrying a weapon of war.
“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,” Dixon stated, rifle in hand. “When the left uses violence, in the rare cases that it happens, it’s resistance,” he insisted.
