Far-Left Extremists Using Patreon to Fund and Promote ‘Guerrilla Cells’ and Carry Out ‘Attacks’
While Patreon has been hyper-vigilant in their banning of right-wing creators for wrongthink — they are ignoring far-left extremists who are openly using the service to fund and promote the formation of “guerrilla cells” to carry out politically motivated “attacks.”
A new report from Far-Left Watch found multiple Patreon users that are raising thousands of dollars a month while violating the service’s Community Guidelines.
Patreon has made headlines multiple times for banning right-wing or centrist users such as Sargon of Akkad, Laura Loomer, and Lauren Southern for their views — none of which promoted violence.
The FLW report focused on militant leftist accounts that are blatantly advocating for political violence.
The first account Far-Left Watch focused on was Revolutionary Left Radio.
“This far-left podcast currently has over 700 Patrons who donate monthly to their show, which is hosted by Brett Anderson aka ‘Breht Oshea’. Brett has a criminal record and is a vocal proponent of armed confrontation with the state and with people who he calls ‘reactionaries’ (ie. people who oppose Communism),” FLW reports.
In tweets, Revolutionary Left Radio declares that they “like my working class like I like my antifascism: armed and militant.”

FLW found that they also “talk about putting every fascist (ie. people who oppose their far-left ideology) “against the wall”, which is a reference to execution.”
Fuck it. I just identify as a militant revolutionary communist who wants to put every fascist in the world against the wall and violently expropriate the wealth and property of the owning class.
I’m hoping that catches on! Haha

“Here, Brett appears to be supporting the work of the New People’s Army (NPA), which is a State Department designated Foreign Terrorist Organization that is responsible for the death of at least 158 innocent civilians,” the report continued.
”According to subsequent surveys carried out by U.S. oil engineers, the natural gas reserves of Liguasan alone amount to $580 billion.
At the same time the island is also home to robust people’s movements and has a strong presence of armed groups including the New Peoples Army.” pic.twitter.com/09VCXlGFvU

Anderson has also called for his followers to use tactics like sabotage and asymmetrical warfare.
In the meantime, yes, underground activity, asymmetrical warfare, guerrilla tactics, sabotage, etc. are all tools in the tool box. We should use them.

Far Left Watch also pointed out the Patreon of The Guillotine Podcast.
“This far-left podcast currently has over 350 Patrons who donate monthly to their show, which is hosted by an extremist who uses the moniker ‘Dr. Bones’ as well as Brett Anderson. ‘Dr. Bones’, who is also a regular guest on Revolutionary Left Radio, is a self described ‘Egoist-Communist, Insurrectionist, and an Illegalist’. He also has his own dedicated Patreon page with that he has been using in order to ‘inspire insurrection’. After we brought this to the attention of Patreon and Patreon support, ‘Dr. Bones’ removed that language from his page as well as language where he discussed firing “massive .44 rounds at the heads of politicians and capitalists”. Not to worry, we archived it before he made the changes,” FLW reports.
Tweets from the host of this show include, “this is why liberals get the wall too.” They also promoted a pamphlet left at the scene of several anarchist bombings to inspire his followers.

Seen some Anarchists getting troubled by Tankies again.
Reminder: in the event of an actual insurrection, riot, or revolt, you do not have to out-debate your political opponents.
You have to outshoot them.
Internet is for propaganda only.
The street decides everything else. pic.twitter.com/lpPyPF7VHH

If those tweets weren’t blatant enough, the host also declared in all-caps that his followers should “threaten the rich with violence.”

“Here, The Guillotine Podcast encourage their followers to start building “clandestine cells” and provide instructions on exactly how they can do that,” FLW reports.
Yes, voting will not change the oppressive system we live under. But neither will arguing online.
Did you know every guerrilla force has relied upon a network of clandestine cells to organize the underground? Did you know YOU CAN START BUILDING CELLS NOW?https://t.co/fMv9c5xvy3 pic.twitter.com/KANyTxU8GA

They have also praised the work of the Informal Anarchist Federation (IAF), which is a Foreign Terrorist Organization responsible for numerous bombing campaigns throughout Italy.
“I think we have pretty thoroughly demonstrated that the ‘Manifest Observable Behavior’ of these three far-left Patreon accounts are in violation of Patreon’s Community Guidelines. Please help us #DefundAntifa and report these violations to Patreon’s Trust and Safety Team. You can also contact their Trust & Safety team directly at Guidelines@patreon.com,” FLW reports.
