‘A real revolution’: Communist Party organizer reveals true mission at anti-Israel rally at UCLA

FIRST ON FOX: A watchdog organization focused on higher education released a video this week showing a member of an outside communist group participating in an anti-Israel protest on the campus of the University of California, Los Angeles.

“I’m a revolutionary organizer,” a woman named “Annie” told an undercover Accuracy in Media reporter in a video posted Wednesday. “I’m an outside agitator,” she adds, smiling.

“I’m part of the Revcoms, Rev Comm Corp, for the emancipation of mankind,” Annie said when asked which group she belonged to, while describing her fellow communists as “comrades.”

Revcom, which made headlines last fall for burning an American flag at a Jason Aldean concert, writes on its website that “this system of capitalism-imperialism is the source of all outrage and all the madness that people are victims of, here and all over the world.” world – and it is high time that this was wiped off the face of the Earth. »

“Not that, but in general, yes,” Annie said when asked if she organized the specific protest at UCLA. “But we were part of it, we were here last night to unite the people. We are part of a large group… We are a little different because we are about to organize for a real revolution.”

The woman in the video appears to be Revcom activist Annie Day, but Fox News Digital could not independently confirm this.

Revcom, led by political activist Bob Avakian, is described by Influence Watch as a “radical left-wing political party in the United States that seeks to overthrow the government and implement a socialist system of government.” With a base in the liberal activist movements of the 1960s, the RCP continues to spread its message of communist ideas and replacement of the governmental system in the United States.

Fox News Digital reached out to Revcom for comment but did not receive a response.

“Our investigation confirms that in many cases, anti-Semitic protests taking place on college campuses across the country are organized and supported by outside agitators,” Accuracy in Media President Adam Guillette told Fox News Digital.

“It is no surprise that the Revolutionary Communist Party played a role in fanning the flames of hatred at UCLA.”

More than 130 protesters were arrested earlier this month as law enforcement cleared an anti-Israel encampment that has become a common sight across the country in recent weeks as anti-Israel demonstrators have taken over several college campuses .

Many of the activists arrested on campuses across the country were not students, according to local law enforcement, and several protests appear to have been organized by national groups backed by progressive donors.

Liberal megadonor George Soros and various groups backed by progressive dark money operations have ties to anti-Israel protests, Fox News Digital reported last month.

Additionally, prominent donors to President Biden have reportedly been linked to some of the groups causing disruption on college campuses.
