Fascists Against Fascism

Refuse Fascism (RF) was established shortly after the November 2016 U.S. presidential election in which Donald Trump unexpectedly defeated the presumed heir to Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton. Stunned and outraged by Trump’s victory, a number of influential members of the Revolutionary Communist Party (RCP)—a Maoist organization that seeks the violent overthrow of America’s capitalist economic system—collaborated to establish RF on the premise that a Trump presidency heralded the rise of Nazi-like fascism in the United States. The most notable founder of this new organization was RCP member Carl Dix, who has frequently called for the freeing of convicted cop-killers Mumia Abu Jamal and Jamil Abdullah Al-Amin, both of whom Dix classifies as “political prisoners.”
